Handbag Diaries: My Bag's Famous!

I'm sure most of you remember watching the film Cloverfield (and dealing with the headache afterward). Well, one of the bag's a character in the film wore is actually today's featured bag! Yay! My bag is famous sucka's! Take that all you bagnista's!

Ironically enough although the bag was worn by an actress in a major film, I actually bought it at Target. Yep, Targay. It couldn't have been more than $25. I really liked the grey-leaf pattern on the bag and the yellow leather-looking handles. Only thing is it got dirty pretty quickly because of the light colors so I haven't worn it in well over a year. And I'm kind of scared to wash it since it is just a handbag. Any bagnista's out there have any handbag washing tips/techniques?

Oh P.S. I Googled like a mad woman but I still couldn't find a screencap of the chic wearing my bag in the movie :-\

City Of Ink "Popular" Art Show And Reality Series

Next weekend Atlanta tattoo shop City Of Ink will host yet another art show at their space. The exhibition is entitled "Popular" and it will showcase a number of art pieces that are inspired by popular culture.

The show will take place on Friday, February 26 at 7 p.m. at City Of Ink (323 Walker Street, Castleberry Hill).

Aside from the "Popular" art show, it looks like the folks of City Of Ink are also hard at work creating their own reality show. The show revolves around life at the shop and may even make its television debut soon. Check out the video below for a sneak peak of "City Of Ink: The TV Show."

Ching-Ching's Do Not Disturb Mixtape

Although I'm not too big on the Valentine's Day holiday I'm still gonna go ahead and post Atlanta producer Ching-Ching's latest project Do Not Disturb. Female producer's aren't something we see a lot of in Hip Hop so I definitely have to show support.

Ching-Ching's V-Day inspired mixtape features a number of well-known slow jams from artists including Maxwell, Floetry, Luther Vandross, and more.

Brittany Bosco Performing Live At Atlanta's 529

If you're gonna be in the Atlanta area this weekend you definitely have to check out Ms. Brittany Bosco performing at the 529 in the East Atlanta Village. I've only seen her perform once, but it was crazyyy. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing her perform live again and for a longer set. Check out the flyer for more info and also check out this video footage I got at one of her most recent performances.

Tonight's The Night!!

LOOOOOOOOOST!!! I'm so friggin' excited!! You guys don't even know! This really is the BEST show ever! The season premiere tonight is like Christmas for me! Christmas, Valentine's Day (with a boo), Halloween (as a kid), and my b-day all rolled up in one!!

Just look at all my damn exclamation points!!!!!

Here's a little treat for my "LOST" lovers...

For those of you who actually watch "LOST" (and if you don't SHAME ON YOU!) you probably remember the episode with me and my boo Sawyer escaping from The Others. Here's a little screencap ABC was gracious enough to send me...

"Home Alone" - Azage (Video)

Recently, Atlanta (by way of Toronto) rapper Azage added his own little soundtrack to the cult classic Home Alone with his promptly titled track “Home Alone” off of The Bars Outbreak mixtape (which can be conveniently downloaded here).

Check out the video mash-up that was put together for the track.

Handbag Diaries: Patrizia Pepe Straw Bag

This was one of those bags that got my attention the moment I laid eyes on it. What really got me was the colors. I loved the combination of the pink, green, and blue on the front of the bag. I also thought the brown leather sides and handle was a nice little touch as well.

I bought the bag at Daffy's, I really can't remember how much I paid, but I know it was pretty reasonable. Probably somewhere between $25 and $40. I even remember the cashier telling me I got a really good deal on the bag. My only minor problem with this bag is because of the colors and the straw material it's really only a spring/summer bag.

Dear Benzino, STFU!

Hey Benzino, you're going on what 59-years-old? Please stop with the making of the music. Go get your Hip Hop gossip (two words that should never really be combined) on with Hip Hop Weekly and leave the music making to the professionals. I don't wanna have to tell you this again sir. Thank cha!

Check out Benzino's latest fuckery, I mean song, featuring The Made Men and Ed OG here.

Swatch's "The Blessing Sign" Watch

I'm lovin' this new watch by Swatch (Ha! That rhymed!). More than anything it's the print on the wristband. I love colors and I love animal print so that basically sealed the deal for me with this watch. And the stuffed tiger it comes with just looks so darn feisty! Grrrr!!

What do you think peeps? Is this watch something you would rock?
