Dec These Walls | Luxe List | Fela Kuti's Queens | Sofia Maldonado

Hey There!
Happy Tuesday Night
It's practically hump day & just a few hours before the 2nd month of 2012,
time is passing rather rapidly.
But as long as we're living every moment to the max then we needn't worry 
about missing out on anything right

Clubhouse Memo's | 'Slow Down You Crazy Child'

Hey People!

You know lately I've been feeling a bit disenchanted 
almost as if I'm not fully together.
Like I'm skipping over something of grave importance 
and the keeper of the Heaven's 
will not allow me to proceed 
beyond this point that I am currently at 
until I've come face to face 
with whatever it is that's playing 
keep away with me.

Clubhouse Icons | Clubhouse Invitations

All the way up until 
fairly recently 
I believed that I'd been born in the wrong era.

However I've found that 
there are many portions 
of modern day times 
that actually interest me 

Like that which my passion/profession is built on
for instance,
Hip Hop.

In any event 
my imagination often runs away to the past 
and is fueled by 
people, places, and situations 
that are aged but golden.

Dorothy Dandrige's

I was slapped with remembrance.

Decorate These Walls With Toxic Women | Andrea Mary Marshall

These white walls here in the clubhouse 
need a little grace & vulgarity.
It was after  all the great Diana Vreeland who said,
"Never fear being vulgar, just boring"
I mean really the world isn't a picture perfect portrait of
white walls, clean windows, and sunshine. 
There are dirt tracks, dark smudges, and storm clouds everywhere.
I've got just the thing these walls need.

How does One Dazzle All At A Masquerade Ball?

The 15th of January is briskly approaching,
& I am as giddy as a child on christmas.
Because not only does it mark the date 
of my 1st performance of 2012 
but it is also the eve of 
Black & Gold Masquerade Ball 
at the Supper Club.
The only trouble is, I am still at a lost 
in regards to what I'm going too 
Doll myself up in to Masquerade around & dazzle all.

Darling Explorations. Twitter | Tumblr | Clubhouse Members

So the other day as I was exploring,
 thru the window of my twitter vehicle,
I'd come across a tweeter that I hadn't seen in a while 
or SPK as I like to refer to her.
(No I don't know her personally... yet.)
I learned that she recently took up residence 
in an area that I frequently vacation in

Darling House Rule | Kir Royale, on a Kate Spade Spread, Drink Recipe | Hangover concepts.

House Rule #1: 
Hard alcohol is forbidden.
Only permitted under necessary circumstances
extremely cold weather. extremely hard week. need for extreme partying.
I've had some good & slightly GaGa moments with hard alcohol many moons ago 
but I've since sworn myself off of it 
unless absolutely necessary. 
Soft things such as
Wine, Champagne, & dazzling flavored beer, are however acceptable.
