Opening Ceremony Shoes

I love Opening Ceremony's shoes. I got some brown suede brogues in NY and there one of my favorite shoes. Just ordered these from eLuxury, suede toe and heel, leather mid.

Hublot Aero Bang Morgan 100th Anniversary

Always loved the design of Hublot. If I were to buy one (real) this would most likely be it: Hublot lines up the power collaborations with this 100year banger (literally) with Uk car maker Charles Morgan. The usual quality control comes with the Hublot who plan on pumping out 100 units of this Morgan Aero Bang model - 44.5mm casing, sapphire crystal glass, black ceramic finish - you get it all.

Burberry Day NY

Suunto Elementum

Got a Suunto for X-mas - they're amazing watches. Looks like they keep stepping it up too:
Elementum consists of three models: Aqua, Terra, and Ventus. Each watch features sport-specific functions such as a digital compass, altimeter, and barometer in the Terra and weather prediction, an advanced compass, and sailing timer in the sailing-specific Ventus timepiece.

Louis Vuitton’s newest venture in Japan is the opening of their LOUIS VUITTON /underground/ store located in the Seibu department store in Ikebukuro. LOUIS VUITTON /underground/ is a concept store and will only be running for a limited period of time. To celebrate the opening, Louis Vuitton invited American rapper Kool Keith for a performance last night.

might have to splurge...





Kanye's boy Verbal from the TERIYAKI BOYZ was fortunate enough to be able to stop by the Louis Vuitton showroom this week and take some quality photos of the upcoming Kanye West x Louis Vuitton Sneaker Collection.

The entire collaboration collection from Kanye West and Louis Vuitton will be due out in mid-June from what we’ve been told.

Chinese Acupuncture (Aka, crop circles)

So we go to this one Sauna in Guangzhou every time we're there. They treat you like a KING! free drinks, cigarettes, food, your own lazy boy with built in t.v., manicure, peticure, ear cleaning, neck massage and then an hour long full body massage - all for about $50 U.S. So I always get a swedish/japanese full body which is softer and more relaxing than  having your muscles beaten to a pulp (even if it does feel better in a couple days it sucks at the time!). There is an additional technique that we call "hot rocks" where they take smooth flat rocks, heat them up, and place them on pressure points on your back - ITS FUCKING AMAZING!! So of course I asked for this this time and the hostess was all, "oh yees yees, vely good massagy", so I thought she knew what I meant - NOPE. Instead I got suction cupping where she takes round glass cups that have a wick in them, lights it on fire, puts it on your back and then blows out the flame creating a vacuum that sucks up your skin/muscle. So I'm expecting these soothing hot rocks and instead she puts these glass balls all over me and it feels like all the skin on me is being sucked to my back into these little bottles! So I think, alright, I've heard of this before, its supposed to be really good for you, I'll just go with it. The pain got so bad that I started freaking out and pulling them all off me while the girl is looking at me like I'm crazy!!
