SNAPSHOT: Farhiya Shire x Glamour Magazine Dutch

I tend to be pretty fond of black and white (but not red all over, ha!) but looking at these images in saturated hues made me smile. And honestly, is there such thing as “too much color”?

DJ 4 A Cure: Flipping Facts 2 Fiction

f2f-1

Approximately every 3 minutes one person in the United States is diagnosed with a blood cancer and approximately every 10 minutes someone in the US dies from a blood cancer.

Facts like these are the reason the DJ for a Cure movement began; the organization is comprised of a group of deejays, visual artists, musicians, advocates, and the dopest  cancer survivor, DJ Quiana Parks. They all came together with the sole purpose of raising awareness to fight blood cancers by using their creativity.

As you can tell DJ for a Cure is heavily rooted in the arts and all of you supporters may not be as artsy as you’d like, but that doesn’t mean you can’t help flip these cancer facts to fiction by helping to make a change. There are dozens of ways to help change the devastating statistics. Go check out djforacure.com to see how you can get involved.

Whether it’s donating a few bucks, attending the next DJ4C event, or joining the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Light the Night Walk we are all capable of flipping the script on these facts and fighting for a cure.

Before you know it you’ll become the next ‘advocate junqui‘!

CREATIVE: ADIDAS WANTS YOUR IG PICS ON THEIR KICKS

adidas_zxflux

Sneakerheads who pride themselves on wearing only the most exclusive. Self-proclaimed hypebeasts who jump on the latest trend, no matter what. Someone who doesn’t necessarily follow fads, but wants to preserve a treasured moment in an unconventional way. Thanks to Adidas’ latest groundbreaking news, everyone’s wishes will be granted.

Starting in August, Adidas will launch their photoprint app for their popular ZX Flux sneaker on iPhone and Android. This will allow you to take your Instagram photos and express yourself to the world in an innovative way. So forget simple “colorways” as the only means of kicks customization. That sloppy burger at that out-of-state diner you loved so much that you just HAD to take a picture of? That unbelievable sunset you captured before you slipped on a hill? The priceless snapshot of you tossing your cap in the air at your graduation? Yes, even your multiple selfies can all be showcased on your feet for the REAL world to see. This might actually take care of that “they’re wearing the same exact sneakers as me” annoying fashion faux-pas. It might also make you a Sherlock Holmes… don’t be surprised if you look down at someone’s feet and discover that you finally found your Instagram stalker!

CREATIVE: Queen Elizabeth II Gets the Royal (Artsy) Treatment

If you were an imaginative individual with a bunch of Aussie bucks to spare, you would naturally use those bills as your canvas, right?

With the knowledge of pop culture and a great sense of visual humor, WordPress user A Bunch Of 5s produces monetary masterpieces that will make you LOL for real. (Sorry, I couldn’t pick just a handful of my favorites, they’re all too dope!)

Reportedly after the artist completes his pieces, they are released in the hopes that the lucky recipients will “hang them onto their fridge”. Art next to your grocery list…maybe it would help me remember to buy more milk. Or at the very least, some Sharpies.

LIFESTYLE: A Jypsy-of-All-Trades // Jeyfree Brings Her Style + Trip-Hop to BK

jeyfree1

If you were to ask the question, “Who is Jana “Jeyfree” Freeman”, you would undoubtedly get different responses. An eclectic soul; a bright light with a nomadic spirit; a stylish bohemian with artisan creativity; a make-up artist who just so happens to create melodic sounds of a trippy nature. She is all of these descriptions and more.

jeyfree3 jeyfree4 jeyfree9 jeyfree8 jeyfree7 jeyfree6

She’s no stranger to showcasing her multi-faceted creativity. Known for her skills with a brush — faces, blank canvases, acrylic/wire finger accessories, you name it — she’s recently honed her talents into expressing herself musically. Whether she’s one of the main acts that travels to Houston, ATL or NOLA on The Freak Show Tour, or she’s appearing in local venues in one of the 5 Boroughs, she always leaves her mark. And the occasional trail of Unicorn/Mermaid glitter.

MUSIC: #Selfie [JOHNNY X QUIANA TAKING ALL THE MONEY REMIX]

Johnny and Quiana’s reasoning for wanting to collab is “We like to hoodrat stuff with our friends”. And, “#Selfie” is a huge song right now (as annoying as it is). A producer got together with a DJ and put an trappy spin on the song. If you like it.. share it. Here’s Johnny and Quiana’s and their #Selfie Remix. Make sure to send theJUNQUI your Selfies at selfie@thejunqui.com

LIFESTYLE: YOU HAD TO BE THERE, OR MAYBE NOT ::: SNAPSHOTS from COACHELLA

You weren’t there getting dirt in your sandals, confetti in your hair, or fanning away the massive clouds of smoke. (some even from *Le Gasp* smoke machines!) But who cares? That doesn’t mean you still can’t enjoy the festivities and live the boho-chic life vicariously through pictures. (Plus it’s alot cheaper…i dunno about YOU, but I need my coins!)

FASHION: PREPARE YOUR CAMP-OUT GEAR! ::: ALEXANDER WANG x H&M hits stores in November!

H&MAW12

You better start saving your moolah NOW… Alexander Wang is H&M’s next designer collab!

(*dramatic pause for screams* !!!fdkmsdcoasmclkas!!!! Whew. Ok, now back to business…)

On “H&M Life” on the retailer’s website, Wang spoke about what this future partnership meant to him:

“I am honored to be a part of H&M’s designer collaborations. The work with their team is an exciting, fun process. They are very open to push boundaries and to set a platform for creativity. This will be a great way for a wider audience to experience elements of the Alexander Wang brand and lifestyle.” 

The previously confidential news was finally revealed during a crazy party at Coachella. The scoop is, both H&M and Wang sent out separate invites to the unbeknownst guests. When the smoke cleared, the cat was out the bag (along with a ton of confetti!) and the night was christened thanks to the haute Aussie Iggy Azalea and Major Lazer! Check out the visual evidence of the celebratory night, and be on the lookout for more info on this highly anticipated collection (for the ladies AND the fellas!) that’s set to drop November 6th!
