What A Legacy

It is with sadness that I say, today we, the body of Penn State, have lost someone very dear to us.

Just almost half past 9 o'clock this morning, Joseph 'Joe' Vincent Paterno, fondly known as JoePa to many, passed away. He was admitted recently to Mount Nittany Hospital due to complications of lung cancer. It was just shortly after his rude dismissal from his position as Penn State Football's Head Coach, that he was diagnosed.

Rest In Peace to Penn State's Father & Grandfather, Joe Paterno.

No one can ever replace him. What he has done for my school is on end, 60 years+ dedicated to Penn State and its football program, yet he had to go out in a sad fashion. The most winning football coach in history. We'll remember you forever, Joe!

I'm sure that JoePa LIVED for Penn State. What he did for this school: the library, grants and scholarships. Not to mention the hundreds of young men he raised and touched through the Nittany Lion football program. And for him to be plucked out of this university the way he was, it must have put him in a state of sadness. Regardless of the lung cancer, he had to have died of a broken heart.


Forget that he wasn't perfect [concerning the Sandusky scandal], this man was singlehandedly PENN STATE.

Golden Globes 2012 Red Carpet

Award shows happen year round, every year. And it's that time again, and the Globes are here again. And everyone knows, we all like to find the hits and misses as well as deconstruct all the looks that appear on the red carpet.

So here're  my faves and not so favorites from last night.

Ariel Winter, Modern Family
Elle MacPherson

Echoes of Silence

Newcomer on the scene, The Weeknd, is out with a third mixtape, Echoes of Silence.

The Weeknd is def one to follow. Not sure what his next moves are considering his music. Should we look forward to an album, or more mixtapes??

And once again, he/they (I hear it's actually a two-person group) deliver that good ish.

Click the pic to download

And if you haven't listened to his previous tapes, get 'em at

Tip: I tried to download the hulkshare version, didn't work, hence the datpiff link on the picture.
Ok, so I should have done this last week before my first posts of the year, but hey, it's still early in enough in the year!

 Happy New Year :)

It's an Addiction

Just peeped these two pieces from Thakoon Addition on the Satine Boutique site.

I love, love, love! I really do love maxi skirts, and dresses. They're always cute, and can help hide the good, bad and ugly that I don't wanna show. Ie, if they're aren't a bodycon maxi :)

I really love the print of the the skirt. It's so light, and reminds me of going somewhere to an island or somewhere exotic like Santorini ^_^ on holiday!

As for damage, the Slit Maxi Skirt will get you for 390$ and the Ruffle Dress for 650$.

I like how they styled the skirt for the home page.

Utility boots, a floral maxi, and a tee = yes please! Would be a cute 'fit for a chill day, shopping, sitting outside at cafes, and thrifting in L.A. ;)

Phlo Finister Channeling her Inner Aaliyah

Dope song. I can't say that Miss Finister particularly captured the sound of Aaliyah, but she pulled it off with her look here. Get her mixtape/EP, Crown Gold which features this song Shades, here.

On another note, I see Rochelle Jordan as the modern day Aaliyah, musically. Stay tuned to a post on her music.

Watch the video for her song Bang Bang, also on the Crown Gold EP. It was the first I had heard of her music, I was in like. Pretty good stuff.

Do I Spot a DIY coming???

Spotted: A snood. I think this can be a potentially easy DIY. Think: cut old sweater, or even buying from a fabric store? I certainly do think so!

French Connection Snood
Another snood I've seen that's cute is the Irregular Choice sequin snood. Get it while it's on sale, here!
