2009:Year of Progress

a year without hardships doesn't give any room for growth. I'm still growing into the young woman i want to be. whether it was trials in school, life as an independent and miles away from home, or my hole-filled pockets.

my new years resoultions:
1. get healthier. i dont believe in diets. hence the word "die" in it. i feel as though people go to the extreme and sometimes starve themselves when they want to lose weight or become more healthy. I want to eat more nutritional foods and exercise more.
2. Make money. I want jobs. Not just one, but more. Its the little bits of jamaican in me that urge me to want it. I also just like to stay busy. I want side hustles, a main job, and an internship. All of those are currently in the works.
3. My main goal is to get on my grind with this blog. whether its posting or promoting. i want noodles and rose' to be out there with a popular name. so although we had a delay. its time to grind.

2008 : Year of Growth


Omg 2008. I really dont think anyone could understand the amount i took in this year. All can say is God put me through it. If i told you all the nitty gritty i been through, you probaly would think it was a movie. And then a lot of you would understand why i am the way i am. Im such a private person now that even my loved ones reading this will have no clue what im talkin about. Aside from that stuff, i can say that ive got my heart broken for the first and last time, i lost 2 amazing loved ones, i turned 18 , started college, lost friends, was a victim to this horrible recession which caused my life and lifestyle to make an complete 180, and for the first time started to live on my own. As much as i hated going through these challeges and heartbreak, i am glad God put me through it because im so amazed with the person i am now. Ive learned so much and i see 2009 being a great year because of it. God is preparing me for something truley amazing.
Also, About almost a year ago, january 2008, i created this blog to share my love for art. The expression and application of creative skill and imagination produced to be appreciated primarily for their beauty and emotional power. To be more specific; fashion, music, and lifestyle. the post will still keep comin, hopefully faster lol in 09.

Some New Year resolutions ( im hoping i mite actually follow through with them by me postin em up on here lol)
1. Vegan by the end 09 (i think this mite b accomplished my next month actually)
2. Oprah will kno my name
3. give a lot more time to help those less fortunate
4. win the lotto
5. get a cat and dog and manage to stay alive around them (im allergic)
6. finally leav the past in the dam past
7. to get what i want
8. utalize spell check =P

miami plans got cancled so i gotta figure out what the hell im doing tonight. ugh. all i can say is 09 better be lovely. o shit, nd Obama is our president! =) its really sinkin in now. But yea, I hope those who are reading this and those who are not have a BLESSED 2009+. Thanks for the love.

Back in the day..

i love to laugh. whether im laughin at the jokes or tellin em. i love comedies, improv, impersonations, and funny shows. one of my all time favorites was "martin." although he has the dvds out, i wanna show a clip of a funny scene. I might do this on the regular only cuz its well deserved to be recognize.

My Brown Suga

so i've been in love twice in my life. pretty often for a youngin i must admit. the second time was with a boy but the first time was with music. i grew so passionate about music that i wanted to be an a&r for the longest. im aware its a random career for a kid. the first time I "fell in love with hip hop" was when i first heard the Fugees. They had plenty of hits and good solo ones too, but this classic is a big deal to me. "Fugeela"

Pre Fall 2009 : Missoni

my pics



Half off Wednesdays


i had a blast hangin with my cousins during the holiday break. I swear all we did was shop, eat, and sleep. lol. Before droppin some at Lenox we decided to take a quick stop at a goodwill and a salvation army. For those who dont know; these are actually thrift stores. Instead of goin to urban outfitters and spending 50 on a flannel, you can cop one for 4 dollars ( 2$ on half off wednesdays). My causin even found a members only jacket for like $1.50.

I definatly recomend stopping at one to drop some change and save some cash. just make sure you wash those clothes after you buy em!

If you loved me, you would get me this





So everyone knows that i love music, and even at a young age i taught myself how to compose and produce. Unfortunatly my keyboard has been collecting dust simply because i havnt been motivated play nor teach myself anymore. If i got this i would definatly stop neglecting my keyboard.
It's a book of random musical compositions, created by translating colour into musical notes.

Diva : This is THE official video


This is what a diva looks like from noodlesandrose on Vimeo.


So this past week Beyonce released videos for her new singles "Halo" and "Diva." Halo was cute and showed Beyonce getting lovey dovey with Michael Ealy. Diva, on the other hand was too fierce for words. Check it out for yourself...

Well...more so a version two. See what had happened was..a little cousin of the family transformed into Sasha Fierce during our christmas party. Once Diva came on, she began gyrating her tiny hips to the beat without shame. We just had to catch her on video.

Hot Coco

A 10 minute and big-budget silent short film by Karl Lagerfield pays homage to Coco Chanel. The movie took two days to shoot in a studio on the outskirts of Paris. It was premiered in Paris along with a showing of Chanel’s "Paris-Moscow," a luxury pre-fall ready-to-wear collection combined with couture Chanel designs.




Lagerfield gathered some familiar members of his entourage, portraying a young Coco from 1913, when the legendary designer first got in the game. The second part of the film takes place in 1923, when Chanel was already established, and has newsreel images from the First World War. The plot has characters like Chanel’s lover, the Grand Duke Dmitri Pavlovich, who she borrowed the pea jacket, giving them a feminine touch.

“Chanel was a charming woman, at liberty to seduce men," says Lagerfeld. In other words..yeah her milkshake brought mad boys to the yard.

Queen of B's

Britney Spears, Circus sold 505,000 units in her first week.
Beyonce Knowles, I am Sasha Fierce sold 482,400 units in her first week.



Beyonce had two videos, new movie (Cadillac Records), and intentionally publicizes her marriage for promo.....Britney had a breakdown, baldy, and blue wig.

The Sasha Fierce LP is actually decent. I have a good solid 5 tracks i listen to on the reg. But hey, Hoo-rah for spears. maybe Circus is crakk after all.

Co-sign: Jeremy Scott



Jeremy Scott is a Missouri-born designer. His clothes are crazy, even yeezy co-signs. Anywho, Peep the shades. some eye candy. corny pun intended. owwww.

nice way to promote a bag


boldness. Marc Jacobs in January 2009 Harper's Bazaar

A picture can say a thousand words


this is the cover of designer Catherine Malandrino's new book which celebrates her decade in the industry. What blows my mind is that she isn't even american and she is from france. It's beautiful to see that america is being viewed as a nation of different races and that blonde hair blue eye standard has been thrown out the window. This picture tells me countless stories of struggles, accomplishments, and change. Hopefully this picture will spark a trend of more sistaahhs on the runway.

"I wanted to celebrate this first step in America."
