Tokyo Drifting

Back in 2008, I was checking my MySpace account and came across an interesting individual by the name of Tokyo Diiva. Someone on my friends list shared the link to a song she made for the Bad Girls Club and I immediately fell in love with her look and her sound! Apparently the producers of the show did as well, because it was the theme song for seasons 2 through 15!

Until recently, I had no idea where her name originated from exactly, but if you know anything about the fashion industry in Tokyo, you would understand with one glimpse of her. Her eccentric, yet original, style speaks volumes without her ever having to mention her name.

This beautiful lyricist (who absolutely hates to be called a rapper) lives a jet-setting life that most would envy. One minute, she’s in Jamaica, then Spain, Miami, NYC, LA, Hong Kong, Bangkok, and then back home to Norway! I mean, who wouldn’t want to travel the world and get paid to do it? And since she’s only in her 20s and has her whole life in front of her, why not enjoy it?

Her style has elements of the 80s, 90s, and the next millennia incorporated into it without looking as if she’s trying too hard. What’s even better is that her Instagram feed is full of mind-blowing images that are just as lavish and luxurious as she is – and her IDGAF attitude makes her even more captivating!

With inspiration from Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, & Julia Roberts’ character in Pretty Woman, it’s no wonder why she’s a force to be reckoned with. And I believe that one day she’ll take over the world — bunny ears and all.

Baby Jai…the pink Starburst

At the tender age of 3, a beautiful, chocolate girl had her mother taken away from her as a result of a violent act intended for someone else. And while this is unfortunately common in the streets of LA, it is something that no child should ever witness first-hand. Continue reading

Wildflower

When you think of Phoenix, Arizona, what do you honestly think of? If you’re like most people, the desert is probably what comes to mind, right? And you shouldn’t worry because you are not alone! But who would have thought in the midst of that exists the Malbrough flower – Ambrosia Malbrough, that is.

What Is Women’s History Month? (And Why Is It so Important?)

whm

For those of you that may not be aware, March is Women’s History Month, and it is also the same month that celebrates International Women’s Day. And just as Black History Month started out, Women’s History Month was only a week-long celebration that acknowledged and gave recognition to the contributions women have made for the entire human race. It continued for five years before officially becoming a month-long celebration, and International Women’s Day also became a part of it after being celebrated at the end of February for 100 years.
