    The Cleanse: Day 2

    POSTED ON January 10, 2013

    Woah, day two. Today, my brain is mush. Verrrrry slow. My brain just aint feelin’ it. I feel pretty exhausted and not much of anything else, including hungry. Sure, I’d eat. But no cravings I can’t manage. The main thing I’m noticing? I cant drink water! My body is repelling it.  Except for coconut water, […]

    POSTED ON January 9, 2013

    POSTED ON January 8, 2013

    Guys, I’m doing it. I’m REALLY doing it. Yep, a cleanse. A smoothie and juice cleanse mix-up, DIY style. My first cleanse, ever.

    Jewel it right up

    POSTED ON November 6, 2012

    What you are seeing here is an image that has given my mind a panic attack full of inspiration. Holy yowza! Incredible. That necklace? No words except…how?

    I have tattoo fever up in here right naw naw naw. (Rap track.) I am crazy for the ink and I don’t give a stink… (Just seeing where that one went.) It might not seem like a big deal. A tattoo, who cares? Old news. But for me, its B-I-G. I’ve been anti-tattoo for my […]
