Taste The Mind (I'm BACK)

Hey everyone! First off sorry for being MIA. I've just been so busy with school work, Valor Candy and just relaxing when I can lol. I just want to do a quick update since I've been absent for so long! Everything is going well with me. Just tired of school already. But it will all be over soon. My last year will be the best year. Well any year could be your best year, just surround yourself with the best people :P. I've missed my blog so much and everyday I said to myself I'm going to blog tonight! But that was always a fail. Now off to Valor Candy. The release is being pushed back for a few because of contract issues. I don't want to give you an official date just yet because I don't want that date to come and not have them out. I hope you are all still supporting the first Accessories of Valor Candy. I know Jovany is:
Thanks Man! 
(Go cop an Adeen Pin)
Hope you're all well :]

Well First: Valor Candy WILL be hitting stores... I'm hoping mid-September-ish so be on the look out if your in the Brooklyn area. Also for those that are not It will still be Online :P
Right now I'm working on some packaging for the product and I have a really dope idea. I don't want to give that away lol. It's like 11:35PM and I'm rocking my watch now as I type this lol bc I just got in form seeing some friends :]. Also... Another thing about Valor Candy is I've got some new colors. Again.. I'm not going to give that away so just be on the look out haha. Umm...

Taste The Mind

So what's good everyone? First off I want to thank ALL the supporters so far of Valor Candy.
Like I'm getting this feeling in my heart that I've never felt before. I know I haven't yet made it to where I want to be, but I'm pretty proud of myself. (Not to sound full of myself.) But, part of me feels like Sh*t. Reason being is because... well put it like this imagine someone you wanted to support you on your time of need doesn't even recognize what your doing or care. How would you feel or take it?
Honestly I don't even know what to think...
But on the good note, the promoter in LA (He was at the Kidult Conference) Is doing a photo shoot on friday and he will be wearing my watches!
Also another good note, Two days ago I started a "Like" Page on Facebook for Valor Candy and its already at 123 likes. Thats pretty amazing in my eyes! haha.
Please stay with me while I put in my all to make these accessories perfect. This is my first collection so I want to make sure it has the correct advertisement/hype/acknowledgment before they go on sale. I hope you understand.
Expect it at the end of August or the begging of september. Right on time for back to school.
I'm feeling really good inside besides the fact I don't have the supporters I wish I had. But I guess I'll do it on my own.
I mean.. I already am. Lol.
I love you all. Thanks for supporting me.
I truly mean that.

Graffiti me up(Day 1)

So when I first started this blog I had a section called "Graffiti of the Day" I used to surf the web for different Graffiti photos but, now that I'm in the city a lot I thought I'd create a section and have the different styles of graffiti in NY. Here are some that I took so far:

Taste The Mind

Hey everyone! It's been a while since I posted...
The reason is, I started my F.I.T. program which in one word is AMAZING.
I've been meeting some new people and what not, it's really fun...
I've been taking a lot of notes as well. It's so weird I mean I knew I loved fashion but after only two classes my love for it just keeps growing! A lot of teachers at my normal school say to me "Oh Fashion is to hard" Blah Blah Blah.. BUT honestly if you love something and you have a dream chase that dream. Don't let anyone tell you other wise. A good quote one of my Professors said was "If you don't like what your doing, don't do it." It's like if you don't like working at a fast food place don't do it... Do something you love. Obviously there's some good and bad to this lol, You have to make that money even if it is working at a fast food place.
Overall I'm just really happy.... But there's some drama going on back where I live =/ BUT I have to continue to grind. I missed blogging but I'm going to be on my Mac all night because I have to work on an Editorial for my Magazine class. So a quick update about the watches... the shit still isn't here and I'm pissed about that... BUT like they all say you can never get to caught up in time just go with the flow.... Well... They don't say that but I can apply that right now hahaha. How is everyone though? Tell me what your working on thats fashion related... I would love to know ; ].
Check out this photo of my work and notes:

I'm making my magazine Tittle "Candy" lol. I thought it was pretty cool... : P

Happy Birthday! 7-7-10

1 year ago I created this blog. I was already fueled with a passion for fashion, however being exposed to the wonders of having a blog led too the creation of "Taste The Candy." Networking is the biggest and most powerful thing anyone can do... I've learned that throughout having this blog and attending the Kidult conference. Meeting wonderful people on this blog and having amazing friendships with people like; Diggy, Justin, Tamara and many more. I'm in love with my blog which is why I spend so much time working on it. Thanks for sticking by me, and I know this is just the beginning. Gaining over 500 Followers in just a year, thats pretty amazing. Already I am creating my own accessory line and plan to branch out if its a success. I hope you all still enjoy my blog : ]. Much love to everyone thats held me down!
Happy Birthday Taste The Candy!

Hey whatsup everyone? How have you all been? It's been awhile since I last blogged. I guess I took a mini brake lol. I'm glad to say I'm back! Valor Candy will be up and running soon. I plan to launch it by the end of this month or early August. Something else is dropping in August by someone you all know and love : P. Get ready for that. These past few days have been confusing. It was fun, but with a price to pay. But all good things come to an end sooner or later and we have to focus on what's more important in our life's. I'm so excited to show you all Valor Candy... This is my baby and my baby is going to shine :D. I've planed to sell the first few watches for around $45.00. Not to bad right? Most watches I know are $60 and up. Don't even get me started with G-shocks lol. WELL just wanted to update you all and I hope everyone is still with me.
July 7th is the Anniversary of Taste The Candy so I have an idea of a good post : ].

Rock With You

First let me start by saying R.I.P. The King of pop. We miss you very much!
I still can't believe you left us but your in a better place where there's no hate and you can finally rest in peace.

Second, This is a little preview. I'm not selling this watch exactly. This is a band name watch and I can't take credit for it. I do however take credit for placing the studs on them. So expect something new with watches from me coming real soon! I was up till like 3 in the morning working on this trying to see what looks good. Share some feedback because this week I'm buying some materials to work on this!

June 24, 2010

Coming soon

First I want to talk about an upcoming Mix Tape called "Epic Mix Tape" It's going to be dropping July 1st so be on the look out. Here's one of my favorite tracks off it called "Effortless"
Tell your friends about him and make sure to download his Mix Tape when it drops.

Second, I want to tell you I'm dropping something real soon for sale on the blog. I've already set my budget, my moms cool with it and expect some collaborations. I'm not going to tell you guys what. I will once I test it to see if it all works out : ].
The image above will be the logo of the site. So stay posted.

I've finally planed out what I want to do to make some cash and some other stuff!
I'm going to find another job keep that going. I want to hopefully find a shoe store to work at or clothing store to get some more info about fashion/Merchandising/etc. AND on the side I'm going to DJ at parties for my senior year :D.
I hope this will bring in some extra $ So I can start on my project. My project is working on Accessories, such as Sunglasses.
When ever I bring in the money I'm working on the project ASAP. So be on the look out for that. This should hopefully bring in more money! You guys remember the last sunglasses right?

So... The school year is finally winding down! Thank god... Which means July is coming...AKA The month I started this blog! I'm so happy to still be blogging : ]. I love that I met so many new people on here lol. But I'm starting to get really excited for some events like the Kidult conference in the city which I will be staying in a Hotel for a few days so it will be nice to get away for a bit and in July I will be starting my F.I.T. Programs which I am so excited for hahah.
Yesterday I got no comments on my last post lmao, Well I did get one :]. But thats not the point YSL went hard I was surprised not a lot of people commented. Anywho below is my outfit of the day. Last Night I found my moms old bag from back in the day. I thought it looked nice so I rocked it today, It seems like there is no male or female preference so I went ahead and rocked it today:
(Hope your all well btw!)
