“Where The Magic Happens”

On this episode of MTV Cribs, no shark tank, no 10 car garage or Cristal champagne – just thrifty, blogger realness ya’ll. On a serious note, I got a very sweet message from a new reader wherein with humor, I was asked what my desk actually looks like. This was in reference to the title: “From The Desk of Haute Danielle” on this blog. So, here you guys go…. this is the space where I shop, Facebook, YouTube, look at funny pictures, read the news (real news), prove to myself that Kim Kardashian’s butt is full of fillers (Go on, look at photos from a few years ago. I’ll wait….. You’re back? I hate to say I told you so but, told you.), create, draw, design & blog to you lovely people. Without further adieu….


The desk is from Ikea, the chair is from Crate & Barrel, the computer is a MAC mini (2006) which I have since replaced with a shiny new one with Lion & a slew of extras, the bed I got from Baer’s but I fail to remember what brand it is but it’s HEAVY as hell, brown leopard bed spread – 500 thread count thank you very much – I got it at Ross believe it or not , the paint although much glossier than I asked for is Valspar in “Brooklyn Brownstone”, you’ve got Thai Buddha, some reading material inclusive of “Rant” signed by one Chuck Palahniuk who I met 🙂 but what you can’t see is that underneath those books are my precious Kevyn Aucoin makeup books – “Making Faces” and “Face Forward”. I still need “The Art of Makeup” just in case you were wondering what to get me for Christmas/Chanukah/Kwanza.  

By the way, I have no idea where that bag of laundry came from! That corner is always clean. Don’t judge me. lol. Hope the “zen” I was trying to achieve translates. ‘Til next time….

Awakening The Sleeping Giant


This blog, was started with the hunger for greatness. Started with the intent of bringing every girl (and boy) a fresh take on what’s happening in the fashion and beauty industry. Due to unforeseen economic strife and lack of inspiration, everything came to a screeching halt. What you haven’t seen is that the past few months we have been diligently working to resurrect the dream – expanding it. All upgrades and changes will be made known here, first. What can you expect? Well, for one, it won’t be a whole year before we blog again (even though we do share things on the Facebook page). There will be far more interaction – we’re going to blog and tweet harder than anyone has or ever will. Giveaways, tutorials and a little something extra we’re going to keep mum until it’s ready. So stay tuned. Your patience and dedication keeps the blood pumping in this operation.
