A Big DIY Fan!

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

Can you do it? SI, SE PUEDE! :)

Can't wait to make myself one of these! No point in buying one that's going to cost at least 3 times the amount you'd spend on making yourself a few of your own, besides you get to pick the colors, weaving style, etc!
Found this post on a blog through BLOGLOVIN' which I might just sign up for. HonestlyWTF is a blog worth following, especially with amazing content like this!

Birthday Prep.

Monday, January 17, 2011

The birthday falls on a Saturday this year (BIRTHDAY WEEKEND), and I'm trying to plan a little something-something for everyday.

Just a few of the things I want to do:
  • Facial! (god knows when the last time I got one of those)
  • Visit THE MEATBALL SHOP in the lower east side 
  • See "The Rite" in theaters!~ Anthony Hopkins + Exorcism = Happy Shanis. I love that man.
  • Cutify the nails!~ I wanted to get gel nails, but I might try out these Sally Hansen strips a YT guru recommended! 
  • And I've put the red lip through enough trials to finally shell out the cash to buy the NARS lip pencil :D
Can't wait to get some new pictures printed from that weekend!~

MUSIC: It's just an "everyday stuggle"

Frank Sinatra x Notorious - hip hop doesn't get more beautiful than this at a moment like this.

Enjoy.

ART: 3rd Ward "Intro to Dyeing" Class

Thursday, January 13, 2011


If I can fit this into my budget, I am seriously contemplating signing up for this class. 3rd Ward Dyeing Class
The session on the Sunday after my birthday even has some Japanese dyeing techniques built into the lesson plan. So exciting!~ I'm going to dig through my closet just in case and grab a few items I've grown tired of but don't want to let go of yet. 
If anyone wants to donate some money to the soon-to-be birthday girl, please do so :)

16 days and counting. 
I'm usually a bigger fan of the even numbered birthdays, but I rather like the idea of turning 23 this year. 

MUSIC: Big Boi x The Black Keys Mashup!

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

Last week, this was the only album I bothered bumpin' to.
Take one of my favorite bands, The Black Keys and mash them up with Outkast's Big Boi and you get one hell of an amazing album. Whoever this DJ Wick-It is, I hope he comes out with more soon.

The Brothers of Chico Dusty (Big Boi vs. The Black Keys) by wick-it

Enjoy.

FOOD: Platanos & Peanuts

Sunday, January 9, 2011

People have been asking me a lot lately: "Shanis, how have you been losing weight?"

Well, it's simple really.
1) I gots a job & 2) I'm poor.

Without the boredom to fuel unnecessary munching, I've regulated my caloric intake.
And well, if you're poor you can't afford to eat like you're ballin' - although on the occasion I splurge and eat out.
This is one of my favorite cheap (at home) eats and snacks.



Is there any meal a platano isn't suited for? 
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Yum yum yum delicioso!~

MAKEUP: Insanity of The Times



I found a little inspiration on a lazy Sunday.
I'm thinking I want to buy a wig, dress up a little bolder once in awhile and hit up the village.

[Insanity] is a horrible thing to waste.
