All Green Everything…

All Green Everything…

Yes, I am starting the all green everything movement. Jay-Z had his run with all black but now it’s my turn. You probably thought I was talking about the environment. No not this time. While I am all for saving the Earth, I’m actually referring to fashion. Spring is here so naturally, I’ve got to acquire a few new items for my warm weather wardrobe.

From The Bottom…

From The Bottom…

That’s usually how I get dressed. I start with shoes and work my way up. I believe that shoes can tell you a lot about a person and mine usually reflect how I’m feeling and where I’m going on that particular occasion. Most of the windows I open on my computer are usually designated to different sites with shoes I like so I figured I’d share some things with you folks.

Random Homage #5: Happy Valentine’s Day!!

Random Homage #5: Happy Valentine’s Day!!

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!!! Yup. The holiday of love is upon us yet again. I hope you are with someone you love today, even if it’s a family member. I’ve got a date with my beautiful daughter but I’m pretty sure she can’t eat a whole box of chocolate yet. She’ll still get my love though. But enough with the mushy stuff. Let me put you folks on to a few things I’ve been loving recently.

1: Drake. This kid can seriously flow. And he can sing!! It’s not every day that you get a good rapper and good singer in one package (sorry Kanye). If you haven’t heard this kid do his thing I’ll hook you up with 3 links to my Drake favorites. So check out “Say Whats Real“, “Unstoppable remix“, and “Little Bit“. He’s a monster.

2: I’ve laid off of buying Nike sneakers because the exclusivity of dope sneakers has rapidly plunged over the years. And that’s not just Nike. But lately I just buy boots and shoes with the occasional pair kix. The Black History Month Air Force 1’s are about to cause me to relapse!! The premium leather, detail, and overall craftsmanship makes these the first pair of sneakers that make me proud to be African-American!

3: The Louis Vuitton website has a great Valentines Day layout. With this recession, their merchandise doesn’t really make for practical gifts. But you can always go Windows shopping!

4: Most guys love Danity Kane. And it’s not because of their vocals. So I’m wondering how many men picked up this months Playboy magazine with Aubrey on the cover. I also wonder how Diddy feels about this. I know I’m happy!!

5: It’s NBA All Star Weekend Ladies and Gentlemen (if you can get her to stay in the house with you for V-Day, tune in!!). I’ve been watching All Star games since back when Jordan could still fly. The greatest commercial EVER was debuted a few years ago during All Star Weekend; the Nike Basketball commercial. Yea you know the one i’m talking about. If not, check it out here!!!

Get your money right in ‘09!

Get your money right in ‘09!

There’s literally nothing more baller than having your finances in order. What better way to start off the new year than to begin fortifying your financial foundation. Most people in their early twenties, like myself, may not know how to begin. Whether it’s the start of a career or a part time gig, youth and steady income can lead to overspending and lavish living, which if allowed to spiral, can form some pretty bad habits. Sometime in early ‘08 I stumbled onto moneyunder30.com and have been recommending it to my peers ever since. It’s a great resource for most things regarding personal finances, and covers everything from saving and investing, to credit and real estate. What I like most is that everything is written from a welcoming perspective that doesn’t take a bunch of business savvy to understand. Nor does it come off with the “SHOPPING IS WRONG!, BE FRUGAL!” vibe that some financial resources tend to impart. DEFINITELY peep it ASAP, and start ‘09 the right way.
