in a little over a month (november 22nd to be exact. make note of that people! hehe), i will be a year older and planning a huge celebration which includes an official grand openingĀ and birthday party (more deets coming soon.) But in addition, I also want the following things listed, in no particular order.

beyonce’s heat perfume. i know, very wtf. lol but a friend of mine gave me a sample + i actually liked it.

a goldfish. in a glass bowl. with a castle.

a hot date with a cute, funny, intelligent guy. really want to go to my fav vegan restaurant, gobo, but any nice restaurant with vegetarian options will do.

another tattoo (or 2).

some cute boots/booties. most likely something by jeffrey campbell.

new glasses. i’ve had these for a few years and i really need to either get prescription in this other pair i have or buy some new ones. (or get laser surgery. lol) but i got my eyes on a tortoise shell pair…

  • music!


black kids

mgmt

calvin harris

j*davey

just a few of the bands i listen to on the reg.

whatevs.

my friend ayinde decided to film his tv pilot on monday, september 7th, which was not only labor day but his birthday. but i had a wonderful time. when u r a) doing what u luv + b) are with cool people, it makes it all worthwhile.

can’t say much about his idea for the show, but i can say it is yoga-based. ayinde is a certified yoga instructor, a vegan chef, a rapper, an actor, AND a director! whew! he got 10 jobs! lolbut i am very proud to see him making moves. and to be a part of the action as the wardrobe stylist.

we were all sooo hungry! it seemed like the food took ages to make! but it was oh so worth the wait!

vegan food. oh so good!

filming in the cafe.

we surprised ayinde with a birthday cake from whole foods. and it’s vegan!

i tried to get balloons, but walgreens had 1 birthday balloon + party city was closed. :(

i was searching for zoe kravitz’s new band on youtube + it turned into a lisa bonet search (cuz i heart her oh so much!) +found this old vid of her + river phoenix + raul julia on the donahue show (remember that show? lol) talking about saving the planet and being vegans. so revelent to our times now. makes me wanna speed up my transition to veganism today…

note: this is part 2 of 5. in part 4, john robbins says,

"you should not feel guilty if you eat meat…it is not a question of guilt. let’s throw guilt out the window and take responsibility for our lives. and for creating a healthy world and healthy bodies and healthy children. and a healthy society."

thought that was dope since many vegans (peta in particular) always seem so damn angry + preachy + judgemental. lol
