Kid Cudi and his blog
I have alot of respect for Kid Cudi. I feel like he’s in a great place right now and have all the right people invested in his success. I peeped his blog earlier today and I’m feeling it. I’m super late with this given the fact that he’s been posting for about a year now, but I especially dig the realness of what he writes. He’s human, and that comes across in his posts, and through what he does. He had a fan BBQ this past summer where heads got to just kick back on some chill shit and talk and eat. That’s wassup!
I threw Ryan Leslie on here for some of the same reasons I put Kid Cudi. Music I can dig, and accessibility. Ryan is another dude that comes across really well as a human being and not as this untouchable rock-star of sorts. He’s really been able to use his site, and connecting with people(be it facebook or even through text message) to reach audiences. As a matter of fact he’ll be performing at SOB’s in the city next Wednesday and Thursday which I was actually going to give a separate post on but it’s already sold out. lol
Acqua Di Gio
I remember getting this as a gift senior year in High School and I haven’t stopped purchasing it since. It’s just an all around great smell that’s instantly recognizable after all these years. I attribute it’s success to it’s overall balance. It just smells great. Simple. Plus, although it’s on the lighter side and works well during the spring/summer months, it’s not too faint to hold up in the winter. Even tho I fux with a lot of fragrances this is one of the few that I always keep on auto-refill.
2xist Boxer Briefs
Real talk… these will hands down be one of the most comfortable pair of boxerbriefs you will ever wear in your life. The cotton and waist band is super soft and so is the elastic in the thigh. They fit normal with a built in pouch in the front for a place for everything to go as you walk, sit and run. You’ll never have to readjust again. At $20 bucks for one pair, they surely ain’t cheap, but grab one or two and you won’t be disappointed.
Lately I’ve been rocking the light shadow on the face and it kinda works me, I think, lol. When shaving, there’s nothing worse than razor bumps and ingrown hairs. Fat shouts to my old beautician that used to tighten up my locks for this one… she put me onto this solution about 2 years ago and I must admit it does the trick. I never get bumps or break out after shaving anymore. It comes in a refillable roller bottle so it’s quick and easy and there’s no need for cotton balls(thank God). It has a little sting to it, (which I don’t mind, to me that means its working) and has a strong rubbing alcohol smell which may bother you. But it definitely works and is really easy to incorporate into your shave routine.
The impact of the election and inauguration of Barack Obama has been really great on our country. Being our first black president, he is viewed as a role model for everyone, especially young people. And his wife Michelle has been viewed as a role model for young women including her two daughters. If there was one website that she would put her stamp of approval on for them it would be Facet Girl! Founded in 2008 by young entrepreneur Toni Burke, Facet Girl is a place where young women can go to be “cut and polished,” so to speak. With features such as fashion, body & beauty, awareness, and inspiration, this site serves as a resource for its readers to become positive, healthy, well rounded young women. Click the link *here* to check it out for yourself and don’t forget to tell your sisters, your daughters, your friends… everybody!

1: So the first thing on my newest Random Homage list is somewhat of a two-in-one. It’s the transcript for Barack Obama’s inaugural address via Broccoli City, a great blog i’ve recently come across. They cover a wide array of subjects and the site is just overall fresh. Anyway… By now, I’m assuming everyone of you has heard the speech but you can check it out here and analyze the powerful and genuine words of our President.
2: Okay okay. So the second order of business is also somewhat of a daily double as well. The Brooklyn Circus has become…Well…A Brooklyn staple. It’s become much more than just a shop. It is a brand that the fashion forward Brooklynite can embrace and incorporate easily into their wardrobe. There is a particular piece i’ve got my eye on and that’s the new shawl collar sweater. The detail on it is amazing so go pick this piece up asap in hopes that I havent already freaked it and made it impossible for you to get like me. Just kidding. Sorta.
3: The Sartorialist. The blog of an always traveling, highly fashionable family man with an eye for detail and incredible photography. Need I say more? Sounds like the story of my life within the next two years.
4: If you love high quality footwear that will have you “outchea” as my homies from Chi-Town would say, then you’ve got to appreciate Common Projects. This brand has proven to be nothing short of spectacular and their Spring/Summer 2009 continues their streak. Check it out here.
5: I love Brooklyn. As does Mos Def. Whenever I miss home a little to much, THIS is what I tune into on my ipod.
