“When art and skateboarding collide great things happen… Kids get inspired, new artwork is born, and ramps get shredded. This is a physical manifestation of that sentiment embodied a ramp that spells, in Arabic, “ART”.”

 

To celebrate the romantic and whimsical vibes brought by the month of February, Alanoud Badr of Lady Fozaza and Amanda Gedeon of BOW are proud to announce their exclusive Valentine’s Day collaboration…..

Produced by Capital D studios and shot at the Botanical garden of Dubai’s prestigious Raffles Hotel, the campaign captures the essence of Valentine’s day.

Paired with shimmery silver sequins, denim cut-offs, white lace and an embroidered corset, the ‘V’ blazer gives a modern and playful vibe to a tradition that dates back centuries.

I love studs.  There is something edgy, dangerous and rock about it.  I really love studs on accessories; jewelry, shoes, bags…  Here are some bags that I love from Urban Outfitters.  They are functional, attractive and are a perfect accessory that make a statement.

Can you believe a year has gone by?? 2011 the year that gave rise to the arab spring.. Political rapper, and lyricist Yassin Salman a.k.a The Narcicyst got together with some artists to commemorate the rebirth of Egypt.  “I feel the winds of change, but everything is still the same..”
Even Though I fear the sun, I can only see the reign…

Chorus:
In the light of day you are more than just a knight
seeking for a right of way asking is it just to fight..
I feel the winds of change, but everything is still the same
Even Though I fear the sun, I can only see the reign…(x2)

Verse:
Won’t need no magic carpets,
genies Aladdin sparking
he, me, Bags of the darkest
nights in the fat of august..
lights from the flash of knowledge,
gave all my cash to college,
They pay me no dime if you pay me no mind,

Don’t play me your rhymes or slay me no swine
homie just back up off us!
wrap it up… we packing up and we’ll be back in the morning…
What is your revolution? going in circles daily?
Step out your virtual office, why we work to get lazy?…

Having motherless babies… they lift curtains up off us…
that’s why we use our spotlights in the search for their coffins
Love,
From Jail Bird Fathers
turned us to Doves, that Hail All Maytyrs….

Chorus:
In the light of day you are more than just a knight
seeking for a right of way asking is it just to fight..
I feel the winds of change, but everything is still the same
Even Though I fear the sun, I can only see the reign…(x2)

Verse 2:

More Power to the People
Point out your brothers evils.
Give your sister a hand, although she doesn’t need you…
See Your Flaws when you wake up, they are nothing to sleep through…
and all the money in the world might keep you warm and feed you..

Before the greed will eat you…Do you believe we’re equal?
Or just a plus or minus, they either want or need you.
Society cerebral..Spiritual Cemetary….
Where we’ve buried our feelings for people we visit rarely,

The Television told me the we’re living in scary times,
We were blind, I could see it clearly..
I wouldn’t speak so you could hear me on the beat..
Heard they fear me if i was beardy…
As long as the fashion can match the passion, then you’ll listen really…

If nothing is certain…assertively it serves a purpose
We are on the verge of chaos and everything is perfect.
Blow my clouds in cursive…searching around an earth
Deserted but proud and worth of all these soundless words…
May i ask you …

Chorus:
In the light of day you are more than just a knight
seeking for a right of way asking is it just to fight..
I feel the winds of change, but everything is still the same
Even Though I fear the sun, I can only see the reign…(x2)

Bridge:

Can, i hitch a ride, come…. let us fly over the egypt
and find, peace in our mind…denying our demons.
my light will you be right, there by my side when I see this…
and can I kiss your eyes, so we can fly over Egypt…

Chorus:
In the light of day you are more than just a knight
seeking for a right of way asking is it just to fight..
I feel the winds of change, but everything is still the same
Even Though I fear the sun, I can only see the reign…(X2)

Since it’s couture week in Paris, I had to share with you this beautiful artistic creative mouthwatering combination of fashion & photography.  This couture design house from the UAE can easily compete with any other fashion house in my opinion! Amato Haute Couture with designer Furne One have caught the attention of celebrities (Nicki Minaj, J-Lo, Shakira, Katy Perry.. )and clients worldwide.  The beautiful creations are works of art and I just love love love the nudes and whites in textures and fabrics.  This designer is a visionary with a fantasy imagination that can bring beautiful art to life.
