Im not a fan of Hennessy but I would love to own one of these limited edition bottles designed by New York artist, KAWS. They are numbered and only available at select distributors. The bottle is branded with all of KAWS signature details.
I also learned that Hennessy supports America for the Arts and has partnered with the organization on the Artistry GIVES campaign which supports the advancement of arts education and provides resources for emerging artists around the country.
"Become a fan of Hennessy Artistry GIVES. Hennessy will donate $1 to Americans for the Arts for every new fan beginning on September 15th with a goal of donating $25,000. Click the “like” button here to play your part!"

This is a great gift for a seamstress, tailor, designer, or someone with a love for fashion. The bangle which is a replica of a measuring tape was designed by Monserat De Lucca. Being in the fashion industry I can tell you that this is one item that is just as important as a pen and a pad. Image via trendhunter

P.S. In 1925 when Guerlain's Shalimar debuted it was in a Baccarat crystal flacon and since then its had quite a few reincarnations. More here.

M.A.C. announced today that Nicki Minaj will serve as the 2012 VIVA GLAM spokesperson. Given the success of her collaboration with M.A.C. on her Pink For Friday lipstick last Fall, Nicki seems like a perfect fit for the role. I'm excited to see the campaign! A portion of the proceeds will go to the M.A.C AIDS FUND which supports men, women and children affected by AIDS/HIV globally. Read more here.
This is one my favorite shots from Nicki's spread for Elle magazine this spring. I love this subdued look on her. And Im a fan of the black hair.

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend and survived the heat! I recently became the owner of an HTC Sensation! I was way overdue for an upgrade and knew for sure I wanted something with an Android OS. I'm familiar with Android and enjoy that its so user friendly and that there are tons of great, FREE, apps.
I just downloaded an app that allows me to blog from my phone and this is my test post. ;)

A co-worker recommended for me to check out a spot in L.E.S. called Luke's Lobster. They are famed for their affordable, delicious and fresh Lobster Rolls straight from Maine! It was on my to do list for weeeeks and I had been craving seafood so I made it a point to check it out last week. ALLL week long I looked forward to Friday (also Date Day with the Beau)to get myself some lobster rolls. I found out they mobilize a Nauti Truck everyday to different locales throughout the city to serve the masses. As tempted as I was to run to a truck I wanted to share the experience of the first bite with my boyfriend so I waited.
Friday finally arrived! I had my pre-ordered HP7 tickets in hand (Yes I am a PotterHead)and to sweeten the day even further the Nauti Truck was going to be close to the theater!
So Im in my amazing seats waiting for the trailers to start, checking tweets and THE TRUCK SOLD OUT OF FOOD!!!! Isn't that insane. Nothing was going to stop me from getting my roll so I headed down the the 7th street location (b/w 1st ave and Ave A).
Ahhh it was so worth the wait! We ordered the Taste of Maine for two and feasted. It was deeeelish. The lobster rolls and shrimp rolls were my favorite.
If you're into seafood you should check them out! Lukeslobster.com

This is my second favorite spread that Beyonce has done so far on her media blitz to promote her album "4"....BUT ITS MY FAVORITE COVER!!!! She looks as ferocious as she does delicate, a balance that not many can achieve - and she owns it. Absolutely alluring and entrancing with every swing of her hips and flip of that mane! LOVE THE MAKEUP ON THE COLOR SHOTS!!
P.S. I need this photo retoucher!

ALL OF THESE SITES ARE FABULOUS.
Braids are tres tres chic this summer! They're beautiful, easy, and great to keep hair off your face on hot, sticky days like today. I love a goddess inspired look with great earrings, bangles, a smoldering eye shadow, nude lip, flowing dress and wrap sandals. WERK!

I'm a huge fan of bangles - I consider them to be one of my trademark accessories -and I love to pile 'em high! Friendship bracelets added into the mix give a more personal touch and add a sense of nostalgia....I just find adding color, anywhere, adds more interest and breaks up all the metals or stones we usually wear. Woven yarns, leather, beads all look great. I really like the old school woven ones multi-colored and personalized....its like a little token of the summer you wish never ended. I also really like the leather ones becuase they can look a bit more polished....and where else can you get away with wearing neon leather?! And can we talk about the classic frienship bracelet upgraded with all the rhinestones and studs. -_- In love.
