so ridiculous...but love

I just have to comment on these sneaker/boots that I absolutely love, but I do realize that they may be hideous, but I can not stop looking at them. Should I buy them? I really think I could work these and make them cool. I really wish they were on sale, that would make me justify buying them. Hmmm decisions.

ipod watch holder!

ipod watch holder!

We’ve all been there: losing your tiny iPod Nano or forgetting it’s in your jeans pocket before putting it in the wash. The new HEX Watch Band solves this problem. It’s a 2-in-1 Nano holder and watch band that features audio control and a headphone jack, so you can use your iPod normally even when it’s on your wrist. All of the designs are surprisingly cute, and at $24.95 each, you can actually buy more than one!

3-4 drops of almond oil

◦Let it rest for 30 minutes and rinse off with warm water.

Before you move on to the next mask, here is avocado trivia for you:

Can you answer this? Is avocado a fruit or vegetable?It's a fruit :) For some reason, I always thought it was a vegetable.

On to the next facial mask.

1 teaspoon of apple vinegar
1 egg white
3 teaspoons of olive oil

◦Peel and mash avocado and start adding the rest of the ingredients. Egg white should be beaten before you put it in.

GIRL POWER: Miami Makeup Artist: Lymari Veloz

GIRL POWER: by Pamela Wasabi http://wasabifashionkult.com/

Meet the girl that will seduce you with a smile and win your trust instantly. Meet the woman whose professionalism will have your eyebrow reach the sky and your mouth drag onto the floor simultaneously. It just takes one second to watch her on her stage and realize her heavenly aptitudes, the way she dances with her brushes on your face, the way she plays and mixes color, the way she levitates around you doing what she knows best. Meet the artist whose hands will make you her slave forever. Meet Lymari Veloz, a make-up artist and hair stylist whose creativity and talent is unstoppable, immeasurable and priceless.

A sweet rock fairy with edge and charisma, she is capable of managing a pole-to-pole clientele. She can deal with a conservative mind or with an extroverted rebel. She gets her job done like no other. She always has and always will.

How did you first discover that you wanted to be a hair and make-up artist? How long ago have you been in this industry?I’ve been in this industry my whole life. I was born and grew up in a beauty salon. I like to bring to life everything that I sketch and paint. I’m in love with that process.

Your mother is a hair stylist and owns her own shop. How big is her impact on your life?My mother is my everything. She always pushed me to be as artistically free as possible. She let me created whatever vision I had and taught me that nothing is impossible.
Are you the woman that you dreamt about when you were a little girl?
I believe I’m getting there.

What artists have influenced your artist path?

Salvador Dali, Andy Warhol are some of my favorite. As I grew in the 80’s music also took a big roll as part of my inspiration, artists like Souxie and the Banshees, Blondie, Madonna. But what has impacted me the most is seeing men wear glam rock make-up like David Bowie. That proved to me the endless possibilities of the art of make-up and hair. It’s timeless and genderless.

What difficulties have you encountered as a contemporary artist when it comes to apply your artsy skills?Sometimes I feel I have to hold back on my creativity, not many people are open-minded or appreciate what’s different.

Who would you die for to stylize their hair or do their make-up?

Aside from this fashion and beauty industry you are in, what else interests you?
Art is my life! But I also love to travel, to see places I’ve never thought of before. I also like to fish, ride motorcycles and to paint.
It seems that passion is one powerful motor that keeps you going everyday. What else is essential to be a successful artist like yourself?
To be successful is to love what you do. If you don’t, then you haven’t found what’s going to make you successful.

If we have to erase the words “make-up artist” and “hair styling” from the dictionary, how would you describe what you do?
A visionary. I create, it stars from my heart the to my brain then to paper and then I bring it to life.

70s Glam Rock Make-Up Tutorial

Check out this awesome tutorial by Pamela Wasabi and Lymari Veloz!

HOLE - Courtney Love still rock'n

I just saw Hole live last night at the Vic theater in Chicago. I was a little skeptical once I arrived, the crowd was a strange mix, not so cool. The first band Foxy Shazam was trying to be over the top kinda 70's circus glam, but it was sort of ridiculous, which was really making me wish I had not bought these tickets. I mean if Courtney Love chose that band, then what is she thinking? The wait seemed to be forever, I almost wanted to leave.
Finally, the show is starting, she walks out,
perfectly peroxide hair, cut in a long severe bob style, bangs in eyes, her face perfectly chiseled, only the best plastic surgery could buy. Her first words are "sorry I am late, I was shopping on Michigan Avenue". LOVE IT!
She starts with "Pretty on the inside" very old classic Hole...then continues with all of her classic songs, a few new ones, she is a classic american rock star, like keith richards in her own right, smoking like a million cigarettes through out the entire show.
By the way did I mention how skinny she is? Well, like so skinny her skin tight dress was baggy, SUPER SKINNY!You could see her belly button popping out from her stomach, kinda gross.
I was pleasantly pleased by the show, and she ended with Nothern Lights, acoustic....5 stars Courtney!

Fuerza Bruta "Brute Force"

We just saw Fuerza Bruta which tranlates "Brute Force" is awesome! It is like some weird dream, and a rave all mixed into one.When I refer the the rave part, it is because the audience all stands throughout the peformance, on the stage and the show happens all around, through the audience and literally above the audience's heads. (literally a glass swimming pool lowers above your head!) There are moments of anticipation, surprise, water misters, semi horns and dance music with confetti. Dress casual, get in the center, and look around. Since it is kinda like a dance party rave, feel free to dance and jump up and down, also in Chicago, there is a full bar in the lobby, encouraging you lossen up for this one!
I don't want to spoil any specifics, but definitely check this out if you can. http://auditoriumtheatre.org/wb/pages/home/performances-events/performances.php?event_id=286

Even a greater news for Hello Kitty fans is that in July 2008, the first Hello Kitty Townhouse Hotel was opened in Hsinchu, Taiwan. It is a 2,000 sq. ft. townhouse with three bedrooms. The external appearance is extremely cute and it looks like an English townhouse. The living room is decorated with all sorts of Hello Kitty decorations and the colour scheme is pink, the classic Hello Kitty color. How much does this cost????

The Golden Filter

I just saw this band [The Golden Filter]live at the Empty Bottle in Chicago, they were awesome. She can really sing and there are 2 real live drummers! Highly recommend buying there songs at itunes! They have that cool electro sound that I am still in love with, her voice is very Golfrapp'ish great dance tunes and some etheral ones too.


Metropolis is a 1927 German expressionist film in the science-fiction genre directed by Fritz Lang. Produced in Germany during a stable period of the Weimar Republic, Metropolis is set in a futuristic urban dystopia and makes use of this context to explore a political theme of the day: the social crisis between workers and owners in capitalism. The most expensive silent film ever made, it cost approximately 5 million Reichsmark.

Harajuku girl hearts Medusa's Make-Up!

I wanted to share this pic, so adorable! Harajuku girl hearts Medusa's Make-Up! This pic was sent to us from a customer in Japan. Her pale white skin is thanking our Theatrical foundation "Geisha" all natural mineral, just the look for these cutsies.

What we are listening to today!

THE GOLDEN FILTER: With a promise of magic and mystery, Voluspa is the debut album from New-York based electronic duo The Golden Filter. This is a disco album for the New Age with songs about goddesses, mythology and the golden filter that separates us from the spiritual realm. The Golden Filter are perhaps best known for their talented remixes of songs by artists such as Cut Copy, Little Boots and Empire of the Sun. With their debut, the duo have plied these skills to balancing the ethereal sounds of vocalist Penelope’s voice with an upbeat, otherworldly electronic sound.
