under my umbrella. ella. ella.

on a rainy day in nyc (which happens to be today), one must own a very sturdy and stylish umbrella to make the many block-walk to the subway station bearable. more often than not, we youngsters and/or urban commuters have a couple of cheapie umbrellas to make due. this results in a busted, pathetic brolly that usually ends up in the corner wastebasket and a disgruntled ny-er who is left soaking wet. I say enough already! let's grow up and give our rainy day women a proper brolly to work with. if u have the bux to spend, burberry is tops. for major rain coverage at a spend-thrift price, this totes golf umbrella is perfect! and if something girly is more your thing, this hello kitty umbrella takes the cake!

tote to go

It's Spring in NYC and it's time for a bag makeover! Out with the black Scoop tote and in with the... ?? I'm looking into a cream-colored cotton tote. Something low-brow designer. Marc by Marc Jacobs? Or perhaps this super-hipster tote from Brooklyn's Marlow & Sons. What do YOU think?

be the buddha

a dear family friend, jessica mindich has created the incredible jewelry line, jewelry for a cause, that helps support different causes through sales of their fabulously simple and stylish accessories. diamond peace sign bracelets, D.I.Y kits for charity and my favorite, the enamel blue buddha necklace (which I wore on the red carpet at the oscars) lends relief to doctors without borders in haiti through 50% of sales are just a few of the pieces that sparkle with good intentions.

love drunk

not too long ago, I produced this masspike miles ft. rick ross "love drunk" music video for famed hip-hop director dan "the man" melamid. the vid recently released on mtv and rising up the charts is fire. literally. while we were shooting, a gas station caught fire by our street location and we were able to capture the intense scene for ourselves.
