Good Things come in 3’s!! – Sabi, Janelle Monae & JPK for the 100,000th view!!

Like we always do it this time (of year, that is)!

You know I can’t leave you without a great installment of everyone’s favorite segment on this blog. I always make the December ones extra special. Today I’d like to think I’m especially breaking ground. This is also going to mark the post that earns this site it’s 100,000th view!! So I’d like to thank everyone who made that possible. Of course this would happen right after I say that I’m not going to be actively blogging anymore…

Just when I think I’m done…You guys keep pulling me back!

So we start off with a nice pop tart. This urban Latina reps the land of beautiful women to crush on; Los Angeles, California! You may have heard her on a number of billboard hits like Cobra Starship‘s “You Make Me Feel…” or Britney Spears“Drop Dead”, but to SEE her is a whole nother thing.  Unfortunately, I almost have to throw her in the “‘Too Youngs” bag because she’s damn near a 90’s baby, but she definitely conjures up thoughts of everything that Cassie should be, with all the best parts and then some.

I like her style.

For our second treat, what do we have? Whaddayaknow?! Another racially ambiguous Canadian in a list of many.I must really have a thing for these chics. This is becoming a trend. With a look that’s part Jessica Biel with a dash of 2 of my other crushes, Jurnee Smollet and Brittany Murphy, it’s not a shocker that she fits in here perfectly. But the young lady with three famous names is no stranger to the sci-fi television world, and her starring role on “The Secret Circle” is garnering much fandom and press for her. You can include me in that club! 

And lastly, 

While it’s not often that you see Ms. Monae outside of that Penguin getup that she considers a uniform, I’ve always believed that underneath that Sammie Davis look, there’s a sensous woman in all her feminine glow booming. This is mostly because my introduction to her was through Outkast videos and photo opts where she embraced that more with her curly coiffed do and blousey accessories.

Even still, there’s moments, like this ad that I saw her in, when you can see the stripped down beauty where she shines in just a t-shirt and that wonderful face of hers. Her face is captivating. It has all the features of everything that men look for in a woman. It’s coy, it’s model-esque, it’s cute, it’s serious, and it has an innocence to it, but in a grown woman way – not a creepy she-still-looks-like-a-kid way. Nooo…Make no mistake, Janelle is all woman. And she definitely does know how to fill out a suit! Whoever gets to loosen that bowtie is a lucky someone.

Well, that’s it kiddies. Hope I put you on to someone or made you look at someone in a way you never thought to before. That’s what I’m here for. It’s what I do. Enjoy your holidays and be safe…

As far as you ladies, you have redefined my vision of Bad for this coming year. You are my 3 faves right now.

So Sabi, Jessica Parker Kennedy & Janelle Monae,


Are My New Crush!!!!

It’s Electric!…Minus the bus stop

It’s Almost 2011, and the New Year’s looking quite Green.

Much has been speculated and talked about the rise of environmentally conscious vehicles. It seems it’s something only discussed in the conversation of global warming, or in mixed conversation among those financially flexible enough to afford the costly hybrid cars and experimental models as their side mobiles.

What makes this approaching year different is the variety and economic range of the new slate of Eco-Friendly cars being rolled out, with sleeker designs than previous alternatively fueled cars and starting prices from $26,000 and up. The other big deal is the official major introduction of electric cars being made available to the public. The line-up of automobiles fueled by electric rechargeable power sources is formidable in number. Manufacturers from Nissan and Chevy are all bringing out first generation electric-powered rides with nouveau names like “Volt” and “Think City”. For a better look at what’s in store for 2011, check out this link

So far, I’m feeling the Think City model, and the idea of Toyota partnering up with Tesla Motors for an electric-powered RAV 4, but my favorite so far is definitely the Made-In-China CODA Sedan.

The CODA made the news last week as its CEO took a prototype for a spin down midtown Manhattan in the rain to show off its capabilities, adaptability and overall style. 

They boast to have a 6.6 kilowatt charger at 220 volts which takes about 6 hours to charge, and state that that’s twice as fast as their leading competition. And while much has been said by early critics about its look, I’ll say that the CODA presents the most modern, sexy aesthetic of all of the green cars I’ve ever seen. For one, it actually looks like a car! Lord knows the Prius is God-Awful looking! It’s design is one that’s not instantly noticeable as electric and in a sea of comfort and luxury sedans in an urban metropolis, it’ll blend right in quite nicely yet stand out due to its unique look. Available in several colors and complete with all of those cool new features you all Love like hands free phone capability, seat-warmers and a digital touch screen radio.

Damn, I sound like a car salesman, but with tax incentives that bring the hefty price of driving smart down a bit and the moral confidence of knowing you’re not adding to carbon emissions globally, you just might wanna plug in.
