SAPPHIRE SHANK

June 30, 2010

The sapphire nail file is more of an essential purse accessory than most women may realize. Available at all local drugstores for usually around one to two bones, it’s affordable & functional.. Functional, in more ways than one, that is. True, having a file on hand is convenient when ones nail chips, but having a file like this is convenient when a lady is being hassled. If ever need be, it’s smart to have a sort of protection tool in possession. To be frank, the sapphire nail file can double up as a weapon. With it’s metal pointed tip & handle for grip, I find the item to be an appropriate shank. Though the file is quite light & thin, to make considerable damage, it’s all about technique. Find soft spots, like the trapezius (where the neck & shoulder meet), stomach, inner thigh, etc; stab quick, & twist; repeat if necessary. This should give enough damage for you to run or stun the assailant for further self-defense methods. So remember ladies, stab & twist.

ROSARY WRANGLER

June 12, 2010

Rosary WranglerFashion Trends & Styles - Polyvore

Rosary Wrangler by RisMoney featuring Armani Exchange jewelry

I understand that since Good Wood has become hot in these streets, the trendees have also turned to wearing rosaries as fashion accessories. Now, I know a good amount of Mexican-Catholics & Chaldeans that have been wearing these holy beads around their necks, rightfully so, considering that it is in their religious beliefs to possess such an item. I suppose this trend may not be any different from the “Buddha bead” fad when one was not Buddhist, or the kabbalah bracelet when one was not Jewish, but I can’t help but to be slightly irked by the fad. Maybe this trend vexes me because I was once Catholic; naw, or maybe it triggered when I saw a dude wearing a rosary & I asked him if he was Catholic (to which he was not.) Nope, I think it started to really bother me when I went to a fashion show a few weeks ago & witnessed two guys trading info because one of them was interested in where the other dude got his platinum linked rosary.. Yeah.

Is it any different from the bling crucifix’s on platinum chains? Maybe I’m trippin, maybe it’s just “fashion..” right..?

editorsnote://
The rosary collection above was inspired by a pot-bellied, shirtless, olive-skinned, man I saw talking on his cell phone on the sidewalk when I visited Pittsburgh, PA last week. He had a notable stack of rosaries on his neck. Shouts out.

This is my old bedroom a little over a year ago.. I figure, since I don’t live there anymore, this post wouldn’t be an invasion of my privacy.

VIDEO OF THE DAY:
Lil Kim – “Crush On You”

Lil Kim > Nicki Minaj
I genuinely enjoyed Kim’s music. I was a preteen listening to that raunchy sh– on Kim’s debut album “Hard Core.” How is that compared to little girls listening to Nikki Minaj today?
It’s obvious the quality in today’s mainstream music is “different” then that of just a couple decades ago..
Besides the fact that Junior M.A.F.I.A. was that deal, Kim brought that originality, that real raw sh–. Nicki Minaj is straight Lil Kim x Lil Wayne. & I personally don’t approve of Lil Wayne, but that’s just me.
