Do Right Under God


Make way for the new kids on the block. DoRightUnderGod™ tees have the perfect blend of egdy graphics, thought provoking content and quality thread that allow the wearer of the brand to feel both conscious and comfortable. The streetwear/ apparel company has made a name for itself the past few months on the local maket and has made its way on to our YRB shelves. We look forward to seeing more from the Harlem, NY based crew.

SOOS Rocks Jewelry

Toronto-based accessory line, SOOS Rocks Jewelry has just launched their newest jewellery collection for women, L’Amour – inspired by timeless romance, the power of friendship, and real-life fairy tales.  Timed to coincide with Valentine’s Day, the collection is not just for your sweetheart, but are gifts for everyone in your life who mean something special to you.  “We wanted to create a collection that transcends Valentine’s Day and captures the authenticity of love,” says co-owner/designer Jane Dallin.

Before creating the collection, the SOOS Rocks design team of Dallin and Bryn Nihillasked themselves what their definition of love was: “Love is said to be the emotion of strong affection and personal attachment. In philosophical context, love is a virtue representing all of human kindness, compassion, and affection,” explains Dallin on their consensus.

The collection of necklaces, bracelets and earrings feature various keepsake pieces, including keys, lockets, and heart-shaped gem stones. It is currently available online at soosrocks.com and will be available in boutiques as of February 1, 2011.  Prices range from $22.00 – $45.00 CDN.

OPI Shatter

@DenizReno

I was so excited to try the new OPI Shatter nail polish after seeing it in Teen Vogue and everywhere online… You over lay this on top of any color and as it dries, it separates and shrinks to make this turtle-crackle pattern. Serena Williams and Katy Perry are the endorsers of this collection. I though it would be fun to try. Those who know me know that chipped nail polish is my biggest nightmare and I am known to have sent girls home at work who have chipped nails. This looks so unique and I think I can live with it.

What do you think?

Here is mine!  Word on the street is if you buy liquid latex it does the exact same trick.

(SPBR) Extra

One of the readers emailed me this week and said, I can’t have a dog but how can I help?  This is a reality for many people. There are tons of ways you can help rescue animlas even if you cannot actually own a dog!  Here are some ways I thought of!

1. Get some stuff! – Calendars, cookbooks, water bottles, stickers…

 2. Wear something with a message – http://www.forever21.com/ Charity Shop

3. Tell your friends! http://www.petfinder.com/
