2NE1 COMEBACK 07-05-12. I know that every 2NE1 fans already know this but I just can’t help myself. I’m just so excited about them. Total repackage isn’t it? Especially Dara who even shaved her hair. Just like GD’s past hair-do. Still loving how they carry the “Fashion Icon” title, the way they wear Givenchy pieces and accessories, it truly gives them a sexy badass vibe. 2NE1 will be having their comeback at SBS Inkigayo for their new upcoming new single I Love You. Have you heard the teaser? Listen Dara and CL’s parts here. Better keep your eye on them.

As a designer and early globe trotter - Born in Brasil raised in Côte d’Ivoire and United States - I am inspired by multi-culturalism and the eclectic result behind mixing traditions and modernity. At Loza Maléombho we have worked to build a thriving community of talented women artisans who produce each collection in a small scale, ethically-minded operation in Côte d’Ivoire. We are committed to support the economic empowerment of ivorian women with Fair Trade wage compensation and development opportunities.” ― Loza Maléombho (www.vogue.it)

ROGUE Magazine | “They expect demure, shy. I hate that. I’m not fragile.” ― Georgina Wilson
I was cleaning my magazine rack when I saw this scorching hot December 2011 issue of Rogue Magazine, and the cover? One of my favorite Filipina supermodel, Georgina Wilson. I’m a magazine addict but not a loyal buyer of ROGUE. I particularly buy Rogue because of it’s covergirls, and if I like the articles, I would get one. But I can say that the articles are well written and very interesting. It’s like sort of reading Vanity Fair. The writer tells who the true Georgina is. She is well opinionated, honest and person with such a very great character. The reasons, why I really do love her so much.
