DocYOUmentary Series | Another 4 I love!

As a vegetarian, I felt it quite necessary to watch this documentary. I was immediately intrigued by the title. This documentary definitely pushes veganism more than vegetarianism, but it’s very informative about both. Even if you have no intention to ever stop eating meat, I’d still recommend this documentary because it’s just so important to know these facts about food itself, health, the food industry and the treatment of factory farm animals. It’s definitely one to watch!

I feel a rant coming on...

I fucking hate it when I see South Asian magazines using models who ARE NOT SOUTH ASIAN all the time. I realize it’s kind of petty to allow this to piss me off, but just hear me out and then make your judgments.

I am a colored model. We are marginalized in every aspect of this industry. A lot of the time, we feel like we get hired to meet some sort of an “ethic quota” as opposed to being the best for the job.

Tech Tuesday | iRig

Hello lovelies! Welcome to Tech Tuesday! This week, we're featuring a guitar interface adapter called "iRig". It allows you to connect your guitar to any iOS device, which is super cool! It costs around $30-$40. I use it on my phone, through the AmpliTube app by IK Multimedia, but you can also use it through the Garage Band app on your Mac.

Note: To use this adapter, you'll need to make sure you Mac is compatible by going into "About this Mac", then clicking "System Report". Click "Audio", and check that "External Microphone/iPhone Headset" is included in the features. If it is, you're good to go!

You just need the iRig, an amp cord, your computer/phone, headphones and your guitar!

Oscars 2014! - Fashion

It's that time again people! Let's look through the glamorous fashion we saw at the oscars this year!


I mean let's get real. Lupita always hits the mark and last night was no difference. She was a vision in Prada and the beautiful Nairobi blue was glowing on her skin. We also saw a lot of nudes and blush colours which were beautiful, but unfortunately in my opinion the colours washed out many of the actors. However, I loved Cate in this dress because the flower detail looks like it's floating around her. Sandra looks super chic in Alexander McQueen. And THANK THE FASHION GODS Jennifer Lawrence came back from the pillowcase dress, she looked stunning as the lady in red.
