Porsche Design Sportster Sled

As you can see I have the slopes on my mind since my bday ski trip is coming up soon. See the flyer to the right for more info on that. But back to hitting the slopes in style.

Porsche Design have created a sled drawing inspiration from Porsche’s 911 sports car. The sled is made entirely of aluminum allowing it to be extremely light yet rigid. The sled is foldable allowing it to be stored in a small space even fitting in the famously small trunk of the Porsche 911. The Porsche Design Sportster sled is available from Porsche Design stores worldwide.

High End Snowboarding

Chanel have released a snowboard as part of this years winter sport collection. The Chanel Snowboard has a high gloss piano black lacquer resin finish with a discrete Chanel monogram by the front binding. The snowboard is made of fiberglass and wood which gives it a degree of flexibility whilst maintaining rigidity at the same time. The Chanel snowboard is available from Chanel stores worldwide throughout the winter ski season.

Don't call it a comeback-Polo Ranger Boots

As I'm sure you all have noticed, the fashion game is just starting to recycle itself with alot of the old styles and trends coming back into play. Well Ralph Lauren wasn't going to be left out as he brings back this classic boot. They were pretty dope back in the day but could you rock them now?? If so you can cop them here. More pics inside.

Bring them back from the past or leave em in the trash??

Ciara is a Diva too!!

We already said "Diva" was Beyonce's version of Lil Wayne's "A Milli" so is this the start of the R&B Divas to take this track and flip it their own way!!

Who's version was better??

DJ Khaled ft. Kanye West, Jay Z, T-Pain-Go Hard(remix)

You 1st heard Hov go in on a Runners beat with the remix to Rick Ross', Hustlin, but now thanks to Jesse, who works with the Runners, for sending over #2. The original version of "Go Hard" was already serious with Kanye alone. Hov takes this joint and isn't playing with it!! You still doubting the big homie!! Well you shouldn't!!

DJ Khaled ft. Kanye West, Jay Z, T-Pain-Go Hard(remix)
So which one is better, this or Brooklyn We Go Hard??

They got other hot shit too, so if you not from DC they still got what you need. Get your copping on right here!!

If I like it, should I put a ring on it???

Well according to Beyonce's hot single, Single Ladies, off of her latest album, I Am..Sasha Fierce, I should. Messing with her I would be living on the streets because I would have went through a lot of wives by now with all the women I have liked then disliked over the years. And actually this post has nothing to do with Beyonce.....well because she is Beyonce, a great entertainer that makes songs that the women go crazy to in the club. So she's ok with me but it's the women, mostly the bitter ones, that take every single word that the BEAUTIFUL, RICH, HAPPY, & MARRIED Beyonce says so literally!!

I've had this on my mind for a long time and didn't really know how to go about posting it until I came across an email fwd this morning that put in all in perspective. So shout out to the originator of this email, I feel you homie. Well you want to hear it, here it go:

Dear (Ex) Love,

We need to talk. Judging from the voicemail you just left me, I'm starting to believe that this Beyonce song, "Single Ladies...Put A Ring On It" has you confused about the true nature of our past and present relationship. When we decided to part ways, it was admittedly difficult for the both of us. I mean, let's face it; all of the time and energy that we invested in our relationship made it hard to imagine life without you. In the end though, we both know that it was the right thing to do.

Did I miss you? Of course I did-which is why I let my emotions get the best of me when I saw you with that guy last night. I can own up to the fact that my behavior was wrong, but your response was way out of line. To suggest that I had no room to get angry because I never asked you to marry me ... well that's just ridiculous. But if you really want to play that game, then let me explain to you the real reasons that I never popped the question.

1. I will only place a ring on the finger of a woman that I deeply love and want to spend the rest of my life with. Unfortunately, you never crossed that threshold.

2. You never had a plan for your life. You were just content with us being together, which would be cool if we were 19 or 20, but we're not-so that's not.

3. We lived together, slept together, ate together. And after experiencing all of that, there was still something deep inside of me that wasn't convinced that you were the one. The familiarity kept the relationship going, but it wasn't enough to make me pull the trigger.

4. Your insecurities pushed me away. No matter how much I tried to love you, you never thought you were good enough, pretty enough, or smart enough for me. At first it was understandable, considering the tough relationship that you had just come out of. But three years later, we shouldn't have been dealing with the same self-esteem issues that we faced on day one.

5. Your idea of marriage and family wasn't a partnership, but a carefully laid out plan that you created-all on your own. I didn't want to hear that "this is the way it's going to be with my husband and my kids." Over time, it became clear that you wanted a "yes man" instead of a partner, and I just wasn't interested in that type of position.

So I guess with all of those reasons, what I'm really trying to say is:
I ONLY liked it ... and that's why I didn't put a ring on it.

I hope I've made things clear.

WOW!! Now that's some deep shit!! So I hope this helps you to stop taking this music shit to personal so you don't end up getting bodied by your ex like this!! LMAO
Beyonce's new album, I Am....Sasha Fierce, is in stores now and you can cop it here!!

Have a great weekend!!
