love these shiny alexander Wangs shoes !







There is definitely a trend for ripped jeans going on right now - not a trend I was planning to follow but looking at my snaps from fall11 and spring12 it looks really cool kind of like some freestyle artwork - also, I am really tempted to rip my new pair of designer jeans that I was so happy about for like a day and that annoyed me for again groing a size larger overnight. I am still dreaming about finding that perfect pair one day, slim but comfortable ! staying in place while I’m crawling on the floor taking pictures, nicely butt-shaping … I have some hope for the label Mother and need to check it out on my next trip to the US.

Cocoa is a 3-year-old Alpine Pygmy mixed goat who lives with its owner Fakroddin in Summit, New Jersey. They frequently take trips into Manhattan to enjoy the city. Fakroddin raised Cocoa since she was 2 months old and treats her like a human. “She doesn’t like goats, she doesn’t like farms, she likes the people and the city.” Fakroddin said.

On the morning I wake naturally, for I will have no set clock, nor informed my body timepiece when it should alarm. I dress in comfortable shoes and casual clothes and leave my house going no place. If I am living in a city, I wander streets, window-shop, or gaze at buildings. I enter and leave public parks, libraries, the lobbies of skyscrapers, and movie houses. I stay in no place for very long. On the getaway day I try for amnesia. I do not want to know my name, where I live, or how many dire responsibilities rest on my shoulders. I detest encountering even the closest friend, for then I am reminded of who I am, and the circumstances of my life, which I want to forget for a while.

Being feminine is being desired and hated at the same time. A feminine body or mind is expected to be open and receiving to everything from others’ emotional baggage to sexual fantasies of total strangers. At the same time, receptivity (not that this defines femininity by any means) is considered weak and inferior. The result of this is often violence. Femininity is to be present for other’s needs and then destroyed for its perceived weaknesses.

Being feminine and of color is especially dangerous. Not just because we are a walking target for racist, stereotyped sexual fantasies but because so often we are blamed for being that. I am Latina so I shouldn’t press my luck by acting and dressing too “spicy” too provocative. I can’t be a femme as I want to be because then I am acting out my own stereotype and perpetuating it further and drawing in potential violence. I cannot act, speak, dress or think feminine on my own accord or because I am being myself. Being a woman of color means that whatever I do, I do on account of being Latina. If I am femme, it’s because that’s how I was raised to be in that culture.

The Sweet Smell of Dusty Books…The most popular scent in perfumer Christopher Brosius’s “I Hate Perfume” collection is “In the Library,” which smells like old, dusty books. “My work is really about things that really do smell wonderful, but don’t have a lot of the properties that commercial perfumes do,” he said. NPR’s All Things Considered noted that Brosius “blends and bottles all of his scents by hand in his workshops. The process may be labor-intensive, but it allows him to create singular scents that can’t be mass-produced.”

This might be the greatest thing EVER.
