Bejeweled Face Masks

Masks are so mysterious and sexy. I saw this fashion spread on several trend blogs…

And of course… we been  doing it… Here is Bella ringing in 2010 with her fancy mask.

TIDF 2011

Myself and some of the artists, at last years CUTMR.

The Toronto International Design Festival kicked off on the 24th of this month. I’ve been busy with school and work, so I can’t wait to check out as many of the event and exhibits as I possibly can.

Tonight I get to go to the IDS 11 Opening party, as well as the CUTMR 2011 Press Preview! Exciting!

See you there!

peace, love and health

Nice To Meet Ya From Austin TX!!!

Sup Everybody, my name is Craig Allen and i will be guest blogging for ya this year on HeyDoYou. I come by way of Philadelphia and i now reside in the very crazy and unpredictable Austin TX, which is great because im very unpredictable myself. I’m editor in chief for a locally based website here in Austin by the name of thefeedbak.com, where we cover the nightlife scene here and party goers can write about their experiences of the Austin nightlife scene. Im a Taurus which makes me stubborn right?? WRONG! ok maybe a little bit, but im very creative, i love people who have a creative sense of self and can convey that through a variety of ways. Being creative is what HeyDoYou is all about and that is what drew me to the site to guest blog. My music taste is pretty much based around all types of R&B, of course i grew up Hip-Hop so that will always be my foundation. Other than that, i will do my best to bring ya’ll the latest and greatest from Austin,TX your rockin with the best, so rock with ya boy!!!

Baring SKINS

I love movies… I’ll be honest, I’m not really the kind of girl who will watch a tv show (other than The Game-pre BET), for some reason theres something about a film that can solely grab and hold my attention. I go through the blockbusters, as we all do, and I LOVE to jump on English docu-type films, my favorites being Adulthood and The Firm [#shoutout to my cousin Harry who lives it day to day].

My friend Liz and I have a ritual on free mornings of waking up, baking, and catching a flick with our breakfast… and while amidst our ritual (lol) the topic of Skins came up. More specifically, Liz filled me in on the just-launched American adaptation as well as the upcoming movie rumored to launch this Summer!

Like Adulthood and its sequel Kidulthood, Skins is a British drama about the youth who grow up in some of the roughest neighborhoods in England, exploring topics such as substance abuse, death, eating disorders, sexual orientation, dysfunctional families, violence and more, the difference is that Skins is a television show. Baring in mind that the overall tolerance for subject content and nature in Europe is far more lenient than on this continent,  the North American media have been on a rant about the shows sexual content. While I admittingly haven’t had a moment to check out the show, I will say that my love for these specific types of programs has a lot to do with how deep they go into often untouched, controversial, racy subjects.

The Parents Television Council wanted the show gone before it even aired, they’re currently requesting that MTV be investigated for laws surrounding child porn and exploitation. Several news programs are currently discussing the topics… MTV released this statement;

“We are confident that the episodes of Skins will not only comply with all applicable legal requirements, but also with our responsibilities to our viewers.”

Tell us what you think 😉
