Snapshot Wednesday: “Sandy” Tran & “Danny” Brown


Halloween was this past weekend and the parties were popping. I personally dressed very last minute as a witch (unoriginal, I know), and hit the bars with two of my best friends. One of the funnest parts of Halloween is seeing what everybody else dressed up as. My favorite from the bar was a few guys who made huge cut-out boards of Tinder, and their faces were the photos. I thought that was pretty creative. Other than that, I saw a dozen or so cheetahs (I was going to be a cheetah at one point, so I’m glad I didn’t do that), a few minions, and the usual hoard of devils, zombies, and vampires.

Social media allows us to share our crazy costumes with everyone, and it also allows us to have a direct (well, almost direct) contact with celebrities who share their photos and parties with us. While this is entertaining all year round (watching Drake throw shade at Tyga by taking a picture with Kylie, Breezy fighting with an ex-Cheetah girl this week, Diddy and Cassie sharing their PDA – it’s like we can witness them living their lives) Halloween is especially amusing when we see our favorite celebrities come out in crazy and unique costumes.

My favorite celebrity costume this year goes out to Karrueche Tran and Chris Brown. Besides the fact that they are a favorite celebrity couple of mine, I loved how they dressed up as Sandy and Danny from Grease (which was the first “adult” movie I actually ever watched). They pulled it off, looked adorable, and took adorable pictures to flaunt on Instagram. Such cuties. Hopefully we’ll get to see them do other cute couple pictures in the years to come, along with wedding and baby photos? (wishful thinking)


Snapshot Wednesday: Delano Brown’s Rose

Delano Brown is an artist who has taken over Instagram. He is famous for his roses, which he has painted on Timbs, designer bags, clothing, and furniture that he then puts on sale. They all clear out immediately, especially the hand-painted items which go for hundreds of dollars. Rappers like Fabolous and Chris Brown have been spotted wearing his hand-painted jerseys. Fab’s “Thim Slick” video also has Delano Brown’s painting on the wall of the apartment. Delano Brown also hosts art events in cities like NY and LA where he will paint on live models for audiences. I want to look into him more and eventually write a spotlight piece on him. He’s incredible.

Snaptshot Wednesday: Jay-Z and Beyonce Meet Mona


This picture gave me so much life when it hit Instagram the other day. I love these two as artists and businessmen/women. The empire and influence they have built for themselves is incredible. I also admire the fact that while their lifestyle is “somewhat” public, their life is private. Why did I miss the On the Run tour again?!

Side note: when I went to see the Mona Lisa a year and a half ago, there were mobs of students and tourists in my way. My picture of the Mona Lisa has about 40 random strangers in it. Guess I need to be a music mogel to get a shot like this.
