Posted by Roni at 12:50 pm

Rainbow Bagels
Two words: Rainbow Bagels!

Something pretty, something sweet, and something tasty is making the New York streets, and many other streets, thanks to shipping, hum at the wonderful taste of Rainbow  bagels.

Scot Rossillo “The Bagel Store” owner has been making this fascinating treat for twenty years.

“I have always craved for unique ways to appeal to the demanding bagel palate and my desire to re energize a subdued industry. I left my partners in other bagel ventures so that i can bless bagel lovers from around the globe with my personal creations. ” – S. Rossillo

Scot Rossillo strives to continue to make all his creations better than the last. Rossillo says he always feels like he can do something better.
The art of making food not only taste good but look even better that a piece of actual art itself is a talent that not many posses.

Barbie: One Size Fits All

Posted by Roni at 11:01 am

Barbie has been around for 57 years and we have all known Barbie to look one way and one way only; Perfect boobs, super slim waist, long legs leading to elegantly pointed feet for her heels and a perfect face.

Well, as times have changed and the need for all young girls to accept and love their bodies as is no matter if they aren’t the typical “Barbie” shape has les to Mattel to offer something that can appeal to everyone.

Yesterday the Barbie makers have released three new shapes in addition to the original to show that everyone can indeed be Barbie like. You pick up your just for me Barbie in a curvy shape, tall, or Petite.

Not only is your shape of choice being made available you can also choose which skin tone and hair color fits you best. And these new Barbies also come in a flat foot option so for young girls like myself that aren’t into a lifetime of only heels can play dress up in clothing that actually fits their personal style.

“Barbie was never meant to replicate the femal body.” Michelle Chidoni (head of communications)

Weird. But obviously we can all agree with the statement since the average woman isn’t nearly shaped anything like Barbie.

These new body options will do wonders for young girls self esteem and body image issues all over the world who are constantly watching their favorite celebrities and models post photos in waist trainers and idolized for their photoshopped magagazine covers. We have to understand young girls are very impressionable and showing images of bodies they will most likely never look like without plastic surgery seems to be a bit torturous.

I do applaud Mattel for finally taking the a positive step forward to show every body shape is acceptable and beautiful. Now one Barbie does fit all sizes and even a curvy, tall, or petite girl can now consider herself Barbe like.

Check out the new Barbies below.


Ralph & Russo: Eden Heel

Posted by Roni at 1:00 pm

Love at first sight? Maybe. I saw this shoe and it looked so beautiful I couldn’t imagine a perfect outfit that would do it justice. The “Eden Heel” by Ralph & Russo is nothing less than taking a perfect definition of a word and putting it into a elegantly designed heel.

The “Eden Heel” is apart of Ralph & Russo’s Fall/Winter 2015/2016 collection. Now, I may be a little late on my discovery but I say better late than never especially when you come across a gem like this. Personally, I don’t often jump into the first pair of heels I see nor do I have a large collection simply because I’m usually toting and chasing around my two year old which isn’t usually heel friendly but I do have a good eye when it comes to heesl that makes a silent but bold statement.

The shoe is offered in two very similar designs which I do love because it adjusts to “I like this, but it’s too much of…”. The more subtle design features a satin finish called the “Eden Heel Pump”.

“With ornamental filigree leaves spiraling naturally up the heel, the Eden heel pump harks back to the beauty and perfection of a lost paradise. As if from an enchanted fairy-tale, entangled in the dense foliage of the forest and claimed by a wandering damsel, the Eden Heel Pump is celestial, refined and romantic. Available in satin, suede and patent finishes, the Eden heel pump is easily transformed from day to night.” -Ralph & Russo

Safety & Style with Fire Design

Fire Design - Decorative Fire Extinguisher

Most of us, including myself, lack most the safety items we need in our home in case of an emergency. Like, a fireproof box with you and your families important documents like, social security and birth certificates etc.; so if there was a major fire atleast you would know all those documents are safe but most importantly actually know where they when there isn’t a fire.

But before this fire breaks all the way out why not do a little first response with your own special designed fire extinguisher. You can order your customized extinguisher from a company in France, simply called Fire Design.

The company offers many pre-designed options in themes of cars and bikes, comics, industrial, open bar, kitchen, globe trotters, rock music, sport, and special luxury line.

Is it necessary to have a fire extinguisher, yes; it is necessary to have a decorative fire extinguisher…um, yes !

Chic on Fleek for Cheap

Posted by Roni at 12:49 pm


I absolutely refuse to buy anything full price. I’ve worked in retail clothing for about seven years watching items come in high priced, stay for a while, then eventually becoming cheaper than you shopping at Walmart.

Seriously, the only times I’ve bought something for full price was a last minute item I needed for an event. Other than that, why bother? Unless, it’s a limited edition item that will be sold out and never coming back again, that is full price worthy.

Naturally a teenage girl well into her young womanhood most of my check went straight to the clothing store I was working for at the time and I could never resist the sales and taking advantage of my employee discount. I knew better than to buy anything full priced because a month later, maybe two, that price was going to be dropped by 50% and I learned how to shop.

You see, working retail has taught me that clothing is never worth its original full price, but then again I’m far from the type that needs the newest trend before and while its “popp’n” because hot trends ALWAYS  circle back around.

Be you.

Be yourself.

Fresh Kicks & Fresher Feet 

Posted by Roni at 12:47 pm

   Taking care of your shoes is pretty much an obvious thing to do if you plan for them to last for a long time. We wear them out then come home and wipe them off and place them back in our designated closet space for them.

We never really have an effective way to clean the inside of our shoes besides putting some powder in there for freshness or any other fresh home made tips we’ve created. And for those of us that want our shoes to stay as fresh on the inside as they are on the ouside should definitely look forward to the power of the Water Vaccum.

Greek God Of Sleep Answers Prayers: Hypnos

Posted by Roni at 12:56 pm

Hypnos-sleep hoodie

Have you ever been on your way some where and had to travel on a plane or train? If you have, you know how draining it could be and the wait times are never anything short and sweet but you knew this was the perfect time to get a quick nap in. Unfortunately, those stupid chairs are a far cry from “sleep friendly” and I’ve never managed to get worthy nap in airport terminal.

This is where Hypnos comes in. The perfect mixture of a comfortable hoodie and pillow. That’s right, our favorite hoodie just got so much more heaven like. Co-founder of Hypnos, Josh Woodle,  came up with the idea while on his way to the airport, although he gives initial idea credit to his brother Ryne, Josh wanted to find a way to combine the comfort of his hoodie and a neck pillow while traveling.

New Day New Year: 2016

Posted by Roni at 12:44 pm

Happy New Year!

We have finally made it through another year. We have all spent a year of  accomplishing our goals or resolutions set for 2015 and for some of us a year spent not quite achieving our goals at all.

But that is ok because again like we all tell all tell ourselves “this year is my year”.  Even though what you didn’t accomplished last year you may still be on the path to accomplishing them in 2016. And that means you’re at a very good start!

Artist Spotlight: Meet Coney Island’s Own-TORAE

Posted by Q at 7:31 pm


If you like real Hip Hop, you’ll love Torae. I always find it rewarding to seek out the next hottest artist and give them a platform to showcase their work, their bio and give our readers an opportunity to fall in love with an artist they may not have heard of before. We usually post emerging artists…new artists that need a platform. But Torae is not a new artist. Torae has been rapping for years. He dropped his first album, in 2009 called “Double Barel.” While doing press runs for his album, some really important relationships were formed. One of these important relationships was with DJ Eclipse of SiriusXM’s Hip-Hop Nation. He just so happened to be in need of a new co-host for his show Rap Is Outta Control. Who better to give such an opportunity than a dope realist rapper from the biggest Hip Hop capital of the world?

Torae says he was pretty apprehensive about it because he didn’t want people to get it misconstrued, like, ‘Are you a rapper or are you a radio guy?’,” Torae recalls. “But I try not to block my own blessing. So he gave it  shot! Three weeks in as Eclipse right-hand man, the Double Barrel MC fell in love with radio. Even though Torae was torn with what people would think of him, he realized some of the best rappers had other careers as well! Look at some of the really good actors that were also rappers; 2pac, Queen Latifah, LL Cool J and one of the best to do it…Will Smith aka “The Fresh Prince” So thinking of these amazing artists it made Torae feel better about his dual career path.

I personally got acquainted with Torae when I was riding down the street listening to “Hip Hop Nation” on SiriusXM radio. He was interviewing someone and I just really liked his authenticity. Of course SiriusXM radio is uncensored so I felt he was really able to be himself and delve in to the questions and the truth in what not only he wanted to know..but truly what the fans wanted to know. I was like, “Who is this Torae; The TorGuide?” Then me being me. I googled him and continued to listen to him between 5pm-10pm. When I found out he was a rapper, I as intrigued and while listening to a few of his songs, I knew I needed to do a feature on him.

Torae has a new album dropping in exactly 2wks called “Torae Entitled”

You can go to his website and read his full bio and listen to additional songs. Three of his most recent releases from ‘Entitled’ the tracks are ‘Get Down” x Pete Rock and ‘Saturday Night’ and “Let Em’ Know”

Here’s his most recent video from his song ‘Let em’ Know” produced by Jahlil Beats

Please follow him on social media. He’s extremely humble and approachable. So, if you have a question for him, feel free to ask!
