Death of my blog tunes; this might offend my blogger connects. Moment of silence. Do you know who that is? Emil Wilbekin--I just might stop blogging to focus on other ventures. He was the 12-year tenure as Editor-in Chief of “Vibe” magazine, Vice-President of development for the upscale Marc Ecko Collection and also as an editorial board member at Ecko-owned magazine Complex and more recently for his work as Editor-in-Chief of GIANT Magazine. Inspired yet? Good---great--better---best but I must leave it to rest. Can this serve as my two weeks? Lol we making a membership only society--you gotta register with your button confirmation number. I don't blog for my health. Sham we given out too much for free--do you see who my father is.

In an industry of late nights and hectic schedules its challenging to find time to relax. Sometimes a cappuccino and a sit down to watch some live jazz is all I need to get back to a calm place. Try to reach out beyond your normal repertoire and into the finer things in life.

Too bad I don't have the soundtrack with me to really let you in on the experience.

I know you've been patient, checking back everyday to see if the for sale sign was up. Anxious and attentive; scrolling past fashion posts--Marquis pouts and how-to cuisines searching for the link that would set your LateBoots fantasy free. Well ladies and gentlemen, the day has arrived where you can become Marquis or Sham...or both at the same time if you're nasty. And I mean nasty at work, hustling till 3am and you have to get up at

Marquis and I have built a blueprint with LateBoots, becoming an extrovert has never looked so easy or so good? Then again don't let the photos fool you, we were born with a spoon in our mouths--it just wasn't silver. We worked with the tools we had and continue to find more along the way; I belong right where you see me. Buy your buttons today and see where you go tomorrow. But remember, there are side effects and proceed with caution.

LateBoots, it's a society of Hard Knocks--and some are called to do the teachin.

We Are--Yeah I Said It--We Are.

Photos: SoBe Summer Fridays

Last Friday I avoided the camera's. I could barely move in my Calvin Klein suit and I didn't want to break---a sweat. But I used my down time for some dialogue time. Sky Gellatly is probably the marketing director for most of your favorite websites and brands. You see he has been Phi'ed. And Pierre Downing, you might know him from the tv. I think he's getting into acting. Oh and this other girl, I call her my Rihanna--she should be running the town. And to my new love, Briana--that is the new BFF. Yo B can I get a custom M. Phifer mens duffle bag?--I'll explain later. This Friday we'll be sipping cocktails by SoBe and enjoying a runway show and sample sale. Yeah I still can't help the ones who are not on the guest list. Send me an email on Saturday. Let's go B!

Oh and the highlighted names do move.


Facial Aerobics.

Photo: Inside my medicine gym

Did you RSVP to my Facial Aerobics class? If not then leave the facility now!! So I rarely let people inside of my prep room, and no there is no Michael Jackson type stuff goin on but alot of people ask me how do you--your skin is so--I want mine like. So because today looks as if it'll be a good day I decided to not only share but to show you what I use. Although I've used many products in the past I have now found the perfect workout regime for my face. I use lady products because the "mens" are too harsh for my delicate baby skin lol---and I honestly don't want my face to smell like an old man.

As surprised as it may seems I don't wash my face with water, I use L'Oreal Skin Genesis towelettes followed by Fashion Fair Deep Pore Astringent and Cetaphil Daily Moisturizer. It's also very important to exfoliate once every week, so I use Fashion Fair Facial Polisher. Yes all of these products can be found at department stores and your local drug store.

And that is my Dream Team.
