So many statement pieces to have your friend or that special girl in your life feel royal, They even have crowns!

2) Boy Meets Girl

You may have seen BMG on some of your favorite celebrities throughout the years, I'm really loving the Boy Meets Girls for Nordstrom collection. Edgy with a touch of urban (hence the rad sweats). I think any of the peices would make a thoughtful gift for a true fashion babe.

See the collection HERE.


3) Think Geek - Unicorn Wallet

Whenever I am in a jam and can't think of a gift to get someone I can ALWAYS count on Think Geek. They have the most awesome array of pretty much anything you can think of.

Ladies love unicorns, this is no secret. For only $20 you can own this beautifully detailed wallet, those touches of gold on white are EVERYTHING.

Shop HERE.



4) Bath & Body Works Candles

RUN! Bath & Body works is currently having their 2 for 22 sale on their 3 wick candles. I own many of these and they make superb gifts. Whenever a need a pick-me-up or feel stressed, I light one of these and once the aroma hits the air I start to feel a bit better. Sugar, spice and everything nice, it seems like there is limitless smells to pick from.

5) Burt's Bees Lip Care. 

Burt's Bees is a classic lip care line and you can always count on these products based on their quality. The products I posted below make great stocking stuffers. Another thing that's convenient is they already come in a box that's wrapped like a gift. Say goodbye to these annoying chapped winter lips. 

Shop HERE


6) Scarves at Zappos. 

Tis the season to stay warm. Scarves are a great gift because not only do they keep you warm, but they have the power to make an entire outfit if you buy the right one. Beautiful colors and prints can be found at Zappos.

Halloween in Vegas: Jigsaw Girl.

Hello Nubians,

Trick or Treat? I wanna play a game.

This Halloween was a fun time. I wanted a fairly simple but cool costume so I decided to dress up as a lady Jigsaw from the movie SAW. Putting the costume together was very easy being that I already had most of the items in my closet.


Lady Jigsaw Costume: 
  • A white collared shirt. ( I actually wore a halter with a collar but you couldn't tell because of the blazer).
  • A black blazer and pants.
  • Black combat boots.
  • A wig (if you're hair isn't already black).
  • Red contacts.
  • White face makeup and red too (or a red lipliner is even better).
  • Black eye-shadow

I was pleasantly pleased with the results considering it was a last minute costume. I think the only thing that would have made it freakier is if I had a little red tricycle and rode it all over the place. 


I wanted to do something chill to celebrate this year because I didn't feel like going to an overly crowded club so I decided to hit up Fremont, Vegas.

I was super bummed because there was a parade and I wanted to make it on time but I failed to do so. I used to go to the Village Parade in New York City every year so was curious to see this one. By the time I got to Fremont however, the party was FAR from over. There was still tons of people roaming the streets, dancing, and doing all sorts of rad things... the vibe was great.


George through on some face paint on and called it a day. We have a super amazing costume planned for next year, wait and see ;-)


"You're probably wondering where you are. I'll tell you where you might be. You might be in the room you die in." -Jigsaw


There was a bunch of cool party trucks around and everyone was totally in their zone rocking out. 




Jigsaw in the Casino! Games all over the place. 


Me and my Homie Michael Myers. His costume looked straight out of the movie Halloween, it was scary!



George and his boobie lady friend. 


FIRE!


Just Dance.

I had a great time this Halloween in Vegas just roaming around and hanging out. There was so much to see! After it was all said and done, I had a little Jigsaw off duty time.


What did you dress up as this Halloween? Post some links, I want to see!

Over The Weekend: Drinks, Vintage, Jordans, Shenanigans.

Hey Nubians, 

It all started on a Friday night with a Gene Simmons Hello Kitty POP Figure and an ice cold beer... Blue Moon to be exact. I checked out a local football game that night for absolutely no reason and saw the home team get smacked up which was pretty sad... Anyways....


Lets Move On To Saturday! 

I roamed around the streets of the Las Vegas strip with George and it was a pretty crazy night (at least the parts I could remember). We both purchased Ginormous Fat Tuesday drinks from The Venetian location and man, those things were yummy. I believe it was the 190 Octane, the strongest they have AND the bartender told me the size we purchased has about 10-11 shots in it... not sure how accurate that is but it was strong as hell. 


We've been getting in the Halloween spirit for sure lately... I think everyone is and The LINQ has all these cool monsters posted up which are perfection for photo purposes. 


I posted this meme on instagram, I thought it was hilarious. So Freddy or Jason? 


Here you can see my prom photo pose. Me and my date.


George sold his soul to The Pumpkin King... you know, the usual.


Cool art at the LINQ.




I love this shirt I'm wearing because my Dad purchased it for me a few years back. It's Vintage vibes are what attract me to it and it's very "All American" Denim, patches, stars, red, blue. 


I knew I would be out all day so I kept it casual and cute.

Wearing: Vintage top, Vans glasses, H&M shorts, Nike Air Jordan sneakers.


Hiiiiiiiiiiii.


I always enjoy eating at SeƱor Frogs, I spend almost as much time reading the signs on the ceiling as I do eating. 


Close-ups. 


What did you guys do over the weekend?

New York Comic Con 2014 Cosplay: Part 1

Hello Nubians,

Every year I'm so very excited to see the cosplayers at New York Comic Con. I've also noticed that every year people are getting more and more creative/innovative with their costumes when it comes to signs, making their own costumes instead of buying ones from the store, and also mixing and matching different characters into one costume which is pretty cool. I can't wait to dress up next year myself, I really want to cook up something special.

This year the lovely and talented Theresa Taylor went behind the lens for NubiasNonsense to show us so of the kooky, crazy, and high spirited cosplayers. Let's take a look at a couple of the magical moments she captured.
