I'm not sure how I feel about these. Cute but how functional and safe can they be?
A new trend that's been brewing and was even more evident during Fashion Week, was the long and pointed nail. Women all over the globe are getting their claws out for Fall, and ladies like Beyonce, Fergie, Rihanna, and Katy Perry, have all been rocking these pointed talons. Dubbed "Stiletto Nails", this trend originated in Europe and Russia and has been the nail shape du jour for celebrities that like to live on fashion's edge

Here are some good carnival makeup ideas! Never to early :)

In 2008, Iconologic designed a new identity for the U.S. Virgin Islands.   I really like the multi colored Moko Jumbie used to represent the 3 islands collectively then giving each island and individual color. Loves it!!! Kudos to Iconologic for doing an amazing job creating an identity for my home.
The Jumbie

We just completed a new identity for the U.S. Virgin Islands. Here's the back-story:

"Long ago, before mortal life came to the islands; before tall ships and glittering parades, before pirates and great adventures, the spirits lived in the light: The inkblack-spirit of St. Thomas, his winking coat of many colors flashing; the green-spirit of St. John, kaleidoscope flowers for hair; and the blue-spirit of St. Croix, scaly-skinned with carbuncles of coral. All day and all night they made mischief-playing tricks, climbing high and howling from the islands' peaks, lounging on the edge of the world where the water meets the land. And everywhere they went, they left bits of magic behind. In their footsteps the seas swelled with color. The skies filled with oddly beaked beasts. The land erupted fronds and feathers of every texture. Each day, the islands became more and more a paradise.

Then one day, a Jumbie arrived. He was tall and lean, his knife-edge silhouette cast like night on the water. The spirits did not like this intruder. Protective of their private world, they conspired to remove him. They pelted him with sticks. They burned his camp. They tried to blot out his shadow from the sands. Displeased with their childishness, the Jumbie gathered the spirits and scolded them."Because you did not welcome me. Because you are selfish and secretive, you shall be forced, forever, to learn to share." He then scooped up each spirit in his impossibly boned hand and tossed them to the sky. There, three stars were born in the pattern of the islands. They remain a beacon today-drawing weary travelers to a three-island paradise of blue water, green hills and sparkling nights."

The U.S. Virgin Islands logo has been  featured on Logolounge.com and in this year’s summer 2010 issue of Computer Arts.

On Sunday, I went to Tassa Roti Shop on Covington to get me some buss up shot and I saw a framed poster of the upcoming screening of Mas Man. I'm a huge fan of Peter Minshall's work, especially since it won The New York International Film Festival Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary. I'm excited to see this film.

Georgia Caribbean Carnival Inc presents ‘Conversations on Caribbean Culture’ - The Series

Mas Man (The Final Cut) based on the life of Peter Minshall produced and directed by Trinidad and Tobago national, Mr. Dalton Narine has been selected by Georgia Caribbean Carnival, Inc. as part of its quarterly series ‘Conversations on Caribbean Culture’ to be screened in DeKalb County.

Mas Man, will be screened on Friday October 22, at the state of the art, Porter Sandford III Performing Arts & Community Center, 3181 Rainbow Drive, Decatur Georgia 30034. A matinee show at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. evening reception and show.

Tickets are $10 for Matinee (students 10 - 18 $5); $25 for the reception and evening show.

The film examines Minshall’s life and art, a tapestry woven from multiple threads that include his “masography” coursing through 26 years; his design and stage acumen (documented in the 2006 presentation “The Sacred Heart”); the Carnival stage (the Mas) in Trinidad preparing him for the world stage, Barcelona, Atlanta and Salt Lake City Olympic Games contribution; and his set pieces of political protest and entertainment provoking parallel emotions in major North American, European and Asian cities.

When I'm not in a dress...jeans and a cute top is a sure shot. I was in heaven in my denim dresses this summer.  I see I need to keep them in good condition for Spring 2011.
There was an infinite variety of denim in the spring collections, surfacing in the form of everything from punk-rock safety-pinned jackets and holey stonewashed jeans to stylish, city-chic dresses and suits.

Pleats were found in almost every collection on the runways for spring 2011 in New York and London. They can be found on dresses, skirts and even tops. Pleats reminds me of my uniform skirts I wore throughout most of my schooling. In the right place, pleats and make anyone look sexy.
