Rock Your Grey Like Dascha P!

I LOOOOVE me some Orange Is The New Black, mainly because all of the actors on the show are FABULOUS & FIERCE both on and off screen. As far as ensemble casts on television and the internet go, the OITNB team are at the top of the class.

Ms. Dascha Polanco, otherwise known as Dayanara Diaz, is working a new hair style that I can’t get enough of:

This shade of grey from, Echelon’s Rebel Collection, is so beautiful. Furthering the trend that was once seen on my girls Tavi Gevinson and Kelly Osbourne, there is further proof that you should never be ashamed of seeing a few grey hairs in the mirror. Embrace them and go ALL grey with Echelon!

I’m down for both natural hair and weaves. Honestly I think that you should float with whatever makes you happy, as long as you let others wear their hair how they would like to and rock your own with confidence. What I really co-sign with Echelon Hair about is their tie with the breast cancer awareness movement, first and foremost.

So, if you want to rock some grey hairs full on like Dascha, or just interested in 100% Virgin Indian Hair in general, check out Echelon and see what all of the fuss is about!

Brooklyn’s Own Willifest- Day One!

Well ladies and gents, Brooklyn’s very own Willifest is here and started with a bang last night! Its SOLD OUT Opening night ushered in some wonderful interviews conducted by the brilliant Donna Drake from “Live It Up” and global teen ambassador McKenzie Sanborn of UHE TV’s”Beyond Borders“. The vibe in the air was warm and ripe with talent.

After the interviews and networking, it was finally showtime at Williamsburg Cinemas. I was thoroughly impressed by the music videos, “Postcard” and “Walk With Me”, as well as the short film, “Loretta”. “Loretta”, directed by Rob Fortunato, was so well acted and shot, with a heartfelt, humorous plot. It was a delight to see!

Afterwards, the feature film, “Suck It Up Buttercup”, directed by Malindi Fickle, was a wrenching tale about drug addiction. Raw and tireless in its approach, Fickle really nailed down one of the hardest jobs that a director must accomplish- getting pitch perfect performances from actors. Every single cast member of this film gave superb, natural, raw performances. As an actor myself, I know how fragile the relationship between a director and actor can be.  There has to be a level of trust to a high degree. Kudos to Fickle and her cast and crew for bringing raw truth to the screen. I’m also anxious to see more from the cast in the future, especially actors Lacy Marie Meyer, Robyn Ross, Gregory Konow, Brian Stuart Boyd, and Matthew Goodrich. But honestly, I wish the best for the whole cast. Magnetic performances from all!

Song of the Day: “Moments” by Tove Lo (NSFW)

“I’m not the prettiest you’ve ever seen/But I have my moments/I have my moments”

Tove Lo is one of a handful of female artists today who are more than comfortable to talk about their flaws through music. But there’s just something about Tove Lo that is unabashedly raw and charming, even behind a barrage of expletives. She reminds us that we all have our “off” days.

 

Stay flawed Tove Lo.
