Victory, The Victorious

This weekend I spoke with the underground musical artist, Victory. A awesome jaw dropping lyricist, with an interesting hobby. Check it out:
How did you get your name? Actually the way I got my name is because my rap name use to be Flawless Victory but I just shorten it to Victory
How'd you describe you musical style? / What sets u apart from the artist out there? I would describe my musical style as fun and energetic and what sets me apart is that I won't rap about what typical rappers rap about because I'm not a trap type of rapper so it forces me to be creative

I  a lot of your music can be comical and jaw dropping... Do you think most lyrical artist sell out from their original genre and fall to mainstream artist? I don't think most lyrical artist sell out to maintain stream but I do think that they try to go with the times because you don't have to change what you want to say you just have to update how you say it and most artist don't realize that

What else do you do? I also make clothes and I edit videos also
I love your designs and I watched the amazing growth... How did You get into fashion / what sparked your interest? I originally got the idea by making a shirt to promote myself as a artist and people liked the design and started requesting it then that's when we really started getting into the clothing aspect
Is there anything you'll like for the listeners to know? I would like my listeners to know that I'm working there's a lot of good music coming with some great visuals so stay tuned

I wish him good luck on all endeavers.

Easter Recap & How To: Marbled Easter Nails

On this Octave of Easter I will like to back track to show some Easter Activities. And if you guys aren't tired, I know Easter was yesterday but I'm pretty sure you guys are still dolled up with tons of left overs. I spent most of Easter Weekend, from Friday night, with my family in Maryland. Saturday went as followed: family talks, breakfast, doing each others hair, shopping, making Easter things, bbq, games, bbq, chilling, and my departure. It was awesome for the most part, especially helping create the Easter Eggs and Easter Baskets. (Duh the Barbecue was the best but it's not a food blog, lol.)
My aunt, owner of Kreative Kisses, brung all the ladies together in efforts to make Easter Awesome for the little ones. Easter eggs are usually a tradition in my family, making them and hunting plastic ones with money or candy. But we were also able to help with her usually $25 basket creation. The kids really loved it! Here are some images:

As a female who loves makeup and all things beauty, of course my face was beat to the gawds fir this occasion and I had pink Easter nails with sparkles on Saturday . However, I want to show you guys how to create marbled easter nails, which I did Sunday. If you want the kids to enjoy you can also cut a water-color shaped egg for them to marbelize. Watch Here:

Koki’o Brooklyn: Fashion Accessories

"...all of our accessories are one of a kind"
Koki’o Brooklyn:
Fashion Accessories

[About & Interview with Charisse]

Just when you though that young talent was hard to find, you stumble upon two Brooklyn females, Charisse J. & Gabrielle, with a great hand craft and strong will. This duo is the founders of Koki’o Brooklyn (a spin off of Tokyo, Japan) and is currently making hand crafted accessories.

Once I saw the merchandise I knew it had to be shared. Via phone I asked if they would like to sell online, this idea baffled them. They were used to selling local where they can meet and great their customers. They’d first rather keep sales personal, just like the one of a kind items made. But now you can see some of the sets HERE.


Who are you and what are you looking to do in today’s creative industry?
Our name brand is Koki'o Brooklyn, pronounced similar to Tokyo but with a K. Koki'o is a Hawaiian Flower amongst the top ten rarest flowers in the world. Our goal is simple; we really want to promote rarity and creativity from Brooklyn to Brooklyn - and beyond! By using quality, no-rust materials such as imported beads, sterling silver and gold at affordable, no higher than 25$ merchandise.

What projects are you, specifically, working on?  Jewelry. Right now it is our first line of business but as our   
                                          clientele expands so will our inventory.

Why are you interested in the beauty industry? 
As females, naturally we were respondent to anything beauty related - from nail polish to phone cases and everything in between.

Tell me some brief information about your company: 

Naturally we are creative individuals but we, actually, got our start when my Co-Partners Mom decided to dabble in accessory making. If it wasn't for her we might not be here today, because it was her materials we used in the beginning. Another cool fun fact is that all of our accessories are one of a kind. We literally free hand them and don't reproduce the exact same pattern twice. You will definitely see the same color schemes but everything you buy from us will be something that is your own.

What was life like for you and what you are looking to achieve?

As two female Brooklyn natives, sometimes variety was scarce and limited to Rainbows, Pretty Girls, and Beauty Supply Store accessories. But, the thing is no matter how hard you try the chains end up breaking, the rings end up rusting and the earrings are always itchy. Not only are we tired of the low quality material but we also want to shake up the idea of accessorizing by bringing in unique designs to help polish the look of your outfits - from everyday to going out.

What can people look out for from you in the future? 

Everything - literally! We really don't to limit where this business may go. As long as it's of good quality we're ready and willing to sponsor as much unique merchandise as we can. In the near future one thing you can definitely look out for is iPhone and iPod cases, male & youth accessories.

Why do you think you have what it takes to leave your mark in this industry? 
Quoting back to the Philosopher Ayn Rand 'The question isn't who is going to let me ; it's who is going to stop me!' Sometimes being born in Brooklyn can birth an aggressive, cannot take no for an answer, 'hustler' spirit to some and we are definitely part of that crew. We are so confident it may be misinterpreted as cocky but it's NOT! Our thing is the opposite - we feel we are the average beauty-crazed females. Every female in the world wants to look nice from head to toe. Every female wants custom one of a kind accessories to polish off there outfits. And, every female wants to catch a deal. We've combined these basic wants and we make things we would love to buy so we know the next female would want to as well.

Thank you Koki’o Brooklyn for the pleasure
