Ok Crablings, everyone knows how seriously I take my jeans collection. I will skimp everywhere else, refuse to buy typical designer bags, and wear costume jewelry – but I will NOT skimp on jeans. They are art. That said, I’m equally picky about cleaning them. They do not go in washing machines. Ever. Unless they are stretch skinny. But for the top dogs it’s … Read More Jean Envy

~CC dedicates this post to her good friend Savi, the sillier to my silly~ So CC has been intimately involved in Savi’s drama over the past few weeks. It kind of matches my own and probably so many others…. Do you marry for true love, for convenience, for yourself, for others? Arranged marriages come in all forms. In India, it’s your parents actively picking … Read More Whose choice is it anyway?

So happy with today’s framing project! I got this painting years ago from a street artist in San Fran. So imagine my heartbreak when the original fell and cracked to pieces. And any paint luvah knows how much the frame means! So after searching high and low with some pretty steep prices, my eyes lit when this just turned up, on a random trip … Read More CrabShell DIY of the day
CC doesn’t hate the Lakers. Or love the Lakers. I am actually kind of indifferent to them. It’s always been hard to say why I’m such a hater without it coming across as.. “hate”. Then the heavens opened up and gave us Game 4. Life lesson for all? It’s one thing when you’re hot and on top. But the true measure of a person … Read More Foul
I have always worried how good I would be with my own CrabbyDumplings one day. Because heaven knows MamaCrab will need her sleep as will Papa…. I’m so glad someone has addressed this. Here we have the first bedtime story for adults. How can anyone not appreciate gems like this?: “The eagles who soar through the sky are at rest And the creatures who … Read More Precious Little Fokkers
Black Movie. Urban Movie. “Ethnic” Movie. The thought, let alone the actual words, stirs up so much drama and controversy. CC doesn’t necessarily care about “mainstream”. No, I am more interested in a steady stream… So the success of movements like ImageNation and Affrm are, well, moving. They prove that while Tyler Perry performs a very useful function in black cinema (longggggggg sip), he … Read More Black Cinema Shines

CC herself will be attempting to create a similar bouquet..light a candle and stay tuned for … Read More I Heart Mamacitas
Oh. Oh. Oh. Headphones are art… Crack to CC’s ears…. A good pair makes music so crystal clear you may actually think Fergie is vocally equivalent to Gwen Stefani. Here is RocNation’s aviator turn on a classic… “SkullCandy and Roc Nation have formed a coalition and invented the Aviator headphones, designed to “offer the best way for people to experience the soundtrack of their … Read More Stereo Love
Sampled these nail polish toppers the other day at one of the super improved (read: overpriced) Duane Reade stores in NYC. They are gorgeous in person giving all mani-divas the opportunity to mix and match base colors and toppers. Gorgeous. Flawless. Masks the mid-week chip.. and worth the pricetag. (Seen below in “Chilled” special-effect top coat. A satiny matte finish with a hint of … Read More Random Product Love
…everyday we hustlin’… My poor rap skills notwithstanding, it’s not just a song. The owner of this truck happens to live on CC’s block. So naturally, I snapped a pic and then checked their site. According to Grubstreet.com: “A closer inspection revealed that this was not gangsta posturing: The truck is a mobile version of Cambodian Cuisine, the longtime Fort Greene Asian restaurant that … Read More I hear you Mr. Food Truck Vendor
CC wonders…what happens when you can mix love and work effortlessly? First, love these 2. I have had this video on repeat for awhile after a friend posted it on FB. Over 5 Million hits in one week ***100 of them probably mine*** featuring a sick imitation of Chris Brown, Busta Rhymes, Nikki M, and Weezy F Baby. This is something people either love … Read More When you’re able do what you love ~ with the one you love
