Sexy never left.. but anywho, I would like to introduce you all to my new fashion blog This blog will have more frequent updates with fashion that I adore mixed in with social, political, and cultural commentary. Its a little bit of everything but fashion ties it all in. Hopefully soon Ill start featuring some wearable looks of my own including shopping tips and how to wear one item in a zillion different looks! Also DIY pieces which if you didn't know, I am a jewelry designer so I know a thing or two about being chic at little to no cost. I will continue to use this blog to post juice recipes and herbal remedies and my inner monologues--which often sound like dialogues--so keep up with both and reblog! repost! repeat.

Blue Gold (Less Water, Mo' Problems)

SO, For the second year in a row I will be donating my birthday to Charity Water to help fund the production and shipment of a water rig to developing countries that will drill wells to provide FRESH, CLEAN, DRINKABLE water to thousands in need. This year I have named this campaign after a very powerful documentary called "Blue Gold." If you havent seen this, please watch on hulu or netflix or just google it and find it somewhere. It will change the way you feel about talking 20minute showers. So please, as my birthday gift this year, donate $24 (or what ever you have) to this campaign and send love with it. Then post this link on your social networks and talk to some of your close friends and family and ask them if they are willing to donate as well. My goal is $1000 and every little bit helps. exoh KALAE
Last year I donated my birthday to Water Works Charity and helped them to fund a rig that would drill 80 wells in Ethiopia bringing fresh drinkable water to over 40,000 people each year. I raised the small amount of $316 to donate to this cause, but since plenty of people just like me fund-raised and donated their birthdays, look at what they (WE) were able to accomplish.. This brings a tear to my eye. I want to do this everyday. exoh KALAE

I was thinking about writing a song like this earlier today, borrowing "bitch" lyrics from female rappers and putting them all together in one joint that would really open peoples eyes up towards the use of the word. Is it bad or good? Are any words "bad" or "good?" Isn't it the intention? exoh KALAE

My day at Pride

So me and a few buddies went to pride yesterday and had the time of our lives. We hopped the barricades at 14th st and joined the parade in its extravagant entirety, shaking our groove thang behind the west indian themed float. "We gotta get on a float next year" was the only thought Dancing in my head as I jumped through 20 blocks of glitter and sweat in my 5 inch heels. I was 'round some bad bitches. And that's a compliment. The vibrant arrays of ethnicities, genders, shapes, sizes, tucked penis's, thongs, pierced nipples, flashed breasts, priests and glitter was tremendous. It was a smorgasbord of style and ferocity. I literally got a metaphorical hard on. I fell in love and better yet, burned about 3,000 calories AT LEAST. I felt so touched. And I'm not even talking about the time that gay guy felt me up.. Im not even talking about the time that lesbian felt me up! Which reminds me, I even went to my first lesbian bar and got hit on by a gorgeous blonde with red lipstick. She was a bombshell but ya know, im'a straighty. That being said i feel so full of pride and more than happy to support my gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, cross dresser, and beyond friends as they take the fierce and brave leap into the future where sexual, physical and emotional gender lines will be crossed on a regular basis and it will be considered taboo to NOT be open to the limitless possibilities and surreality of our physical and metaphysical existence. GAY OK. I love my people, ALL of my people. God bless. Bitchez. *3snaps*

Bangin' on a Budget

I know there are a lot of fashion blogs out there that teach you how to look good on a budget. Well there "budget" is usually still way more than a starving artist/burgeoning fashionista such as myself can afford. I have unique taste and I need unique clothes in order to express myself to the fullest. I often find that I hardly shop-who woulda thunk it- unless I have a gross excess of money but recently I had an epiphany. Why can't I shop ALL THE TIME?!?! That's when the idea hit me. If I spent $25 a week on clothes and accessories that could be completely affordable as well as fashion forward for my closet of reusable items. And then "Bangin' on a Budget" was birthed. Every week I'll provide the details of an outfit/items/accessories that I bought for $25. I'll tell you where I went, how much each item was and then how I incorporated it all into my own very unique wardrobe. If you're wondering about my fashion sense, my favorite fabrics are sequins, lace, spandex and jean. I love gold and Anything acid washed. I love bold colors and patterns but I try not to look like a bag of skittles. I dig Jeremy Scott Adidas, Nike dunks and Jeffrey Campbell heels. I only where labels on my feet. Every one else can go to hell. If I get some bangin' shoes on a budget-you'll definitely hear about it!

If you think your style might be similar to mine or you think it's time for a change and you're looking for some inspiration come on this ridiculously cheap journey with me and share how you get bangin' pieces for incredibly low prices. And just so you know, this won't be strictly thrift shops. Take my first outfit for example, I got this at Forever 21 in times square. The top was $15 and the skirt was $10. The skirt also comes in bright orange and lime green! Then I mixed and matched it with accessories from home! So fun and the pieces are so versatile. Ill also incorporate a few different looks with the same pieces so you can continuously reinvent your look without ever leaving your closet.

Stay tuned

Fascinating PPL (inst1) with Mari J. Brooklyn at Kasa De Kalae

If I could describe Mari J. Brooklyn in one word it would be "Alienklondikescrumtiousolisious." There's something about this Japanese doll that's hard to recover from. A stranger walked into my home, and a cousin left. I will remember her fondly always. Her daughter Lino? Don't even get me started. I wanted to keep her and beat her all in the same sitting. She's a rare kind of child, a precious gem, a diamond in the rough if you will, and you will see that in the compilation of photos below. I really wish there was a better format to show you these pictures. Each one deserves attention. They tell a story. This is the pictorial of Mari J. Brooklyn and Lilo. If a picture is worth a thousand words, get ready for this Illiad.

Q: What makes a person fascinating?

Mari J.: When I see and feel I never felt before. like someone take me higher, show me something or let me hear anything inspired by my 6senses .
that make me turn me on and melting. 

Q: Who's the most fascinating person you've ever shot and why would you kill them???

Mari J.: shot ? my sexy boys.. why ? I could tell how I get fire and beauty inside them.

Q: Aren't kids annoying?

Mari J.: sometimes , sometimes not.

Q: IS Hip Hop bigger than my nigga? And most importantly, is it bigger than Religion?

Mari J.: Hip hop is culture. its not religion. but a lot of people get influence by hiphop. like what I did.

Q: Why should I move to Brooklyn?

I feel comfortable stay in Brooklyn cause I love black music since i was 15years old. I can enjoy being living brooklyn and feel Reggae and Hip Hop vibes from Here.

"My other secret is 
I can dance with fire..
I got poi from Thailand 2000 and I learn 6months in Thailand , India and Indonesia. Then I went to out side Rave Party in Japan by hitch hiking. I went to Hokkaido ( North of Japan) and upgrade fire dance 2004."

Word Associations!

Kalae's Citrus LOVE Juice Recipe

Im in a bit of a situation today because I want to continue juicing but I have my period. My ladies will understand this.. The cramping, the fatiguing, the bloating, the mood swings-all I really want is some pizza and ice-cream and FRENCH FRIES (these are my kryptonites). I feel like I'm being tested right now and I really want to come out victorious! I need to figure out what I can juice to get through this-im thinking cantaloupe with coconut water and pear or something along those lines. Ill figure it out. (Few hours later) So I went to the supermarket and I got a bunch of citrus fruits-for some reason they were calling to me and I came up with this AMAZING juice. I think its more of a morning time juice but I drank it at like 8 or 9p but what evs. This is gonna help me go on to day 6 and that's all that matters!

Kalae's Citrus LOVE Juice Recipe

5 clementines
1 lime
1 blood orange
2 pears
2 inches ginger

Mind Over Matter

"The Quality of life is in proportion, always, to the capacity for delight."

(Picture courtesy of Ko-Shin Musica follow her 92-day juice fiesta journey on HER BLOG)

Yesterday I was asked "Why are you going on a juice cleanse?"
I thought this was really interesting because I've never really heard that question before. Usually "Im going on a juice cleanse" leads to responses like "Good for you!" "Nice, what are you juicing?" "You're just gonna drink JUICE?" But never a why. I was really unprepared for the question so I simply answered,
"Because I want to."

I don't think that I'm doing a juice cleanse, I think the juice cleanse is doing me and I have no idea what to expect and what benefits I will receive from this venture. All I know is that I made the immediate commitment to do it as soon as it crossed my mind that's a sign of personal growth for me. I tend to come up with a lovely idea and if I get to it within a year I'd consider it to be timely :) I'm now executing like I never have before and I'm impressed with myself. Go KALAE! Hahaha. Im also under the impression that on some level I've lost control. I think all of us have in some way or another and this is a common way to get back on track. Mind over matter. I control my body, my body does not control me. Of course the aim is to connect mind, body and soul into one powerful, magnetic and godlike creature, but this can only be done once the lion is tamed. Then you control the roar and that's what you need to find balance.

This is only my third day on my juice cleanse but this is what I've been feeling so far. Clarity, connectedness, presence, awareness, compassion, understanding, lightness, energy, awake, a live, invigorated, plentifulness, contentment and discipline. Now I've felt all of these things before, at any individual time and place-maybe because of exterior influences or my natural positive light from the inside--but this light inside is growing---or rather, I'm peeling back the layers of darkness that have gathered over and around it along the years and letting my true sparkle shine through. We all have these things inside of us waiting to thrive consistently and at all times and not just once in a while when something "good" happens to us. I read an amazing quote in "The Artist's Way" yesterday that said "The Quality of life is in proportion, always, to the capacity for delight."
"The Quality of life is in proportion, always, to the capacity for delight."
"The Quality of life is in proportion, always, to the capacity for delight."

I am not only juicing but I am meditating, doing morning pages, going on artist date's and artist walks (as per "The Artist's Way" by Julia Cameron). I think meditation is the best thing anyone can do for themselves. If you do nothing else with yourself, with your day, with your life, please meditate. And if you think you can't do it, if you struggle through it, if you don't enjoy it-guess what?
YOU NEED IT THE MOST. Stick with it. You will notice change.
