The “REV” in rev theory use to stand for revelation but the band thought the name sound like Christian rock which can be the death of any really good rock band (Creed anyone?) The music is not preachy but takes on themes such as the crisis of dictatorship (“Justice”) and its resulting rebellion as well as more emotional themes such as the loss of a loved one (“Hollow man”). The new album ditched the ballets (Light it up) and returned to their original sound long introductions, and ripping guitar solos.
The band was formed in 2002 and this is their third album. It is worth a purchase because they is not a song on here you won’t like. The band has yet to tour on their own but has accompanied Theory of A Dead Man, Hinder and Evanescence as opening acts.
Justice was the first single off the album of the same name and debuted at 75 and has reached 17 on the US charts. The album has never charted on the billboard but is #5 in the hard rock album list.
It is hard to swallow that this band’s fame come from lyrical cameos in the video game world and TV with WWE and Xbox most notable. On the other hand, it exposes the new generation to non-mainstream music which we love on this blog.
This fall is all about the dark romance and we are going to see a lot of black lace going down the runways! So I thought i save you the trouble of fighting every girl when September comes for the perfect black lace dress. I have included an expensive version so you can see where I’m going. I chose Marc Jacob’s sexy Rose Vine lace Dress. It is amazing but retails at a whopping $4,300! Ahh a girl can dream! So since we are not Victoria Beckham I’ve included some inexpensive versions we can all afford and love.
This cute dress from Forever 21 is young and cute and only $22! So you can try a new trend without buyers remorse.
And this sexy lace dress from online store Venus has it all! It’s chic and sexy and will look good on all ages! At $49 its a steal!
This Fall 2011 is getting very dark and i couldn’t be happier! The same patterns that were bright and bubbly for Summer and Spring have now taken on a darker shade and deeper patterns. Lace which was creamy and light for Spring and Summer is now deep and rich. Black is the color to wear in lace now. Same with floral patterns. Spring and Summer saw it bright and small have given way to bolder florals in darker inkier colors. You’ll feel like you just stepped out of an old gothic painting! I look forward to seeing what designers have to show us this fall so sadly I have no new pictures as the collections for Fall 2011-2012 won’t debut until after NY fashion week which falls September 8-16. I will include a picture from Marc Jacobs Spring Collection which shows a sneak peek of whats to come.
As a Vogue influencers’ Network member I received the Clarisonic Cleansing system plus for face and body to try out and make a product review! I was super excited to tell you about it!
Used and recommended by spas and dermatologists, Clarisonic Sonic Skin Cleansing Systems use a patented sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second to gently, yet thoroughly remove 6X more makeup and 2X more dirt and oil than cleansing with your hands alone.
Their systems come with a hand-held device, brush and skin care samples. They retail at $149-$225.
My system was the Clarisonic Plus and it retails at $225. It came with 4 cleansers, including one for the body, and 2 brush heads (one for face and one for body). I have been using it for a week and already notice a difference My face is cleaner, smoother and brighter! It only needs to be charged about every 90 days! So great for the environment! It also beeps to let you know when you should switch to another part of your face then it turns itself off! It has three speeds as well! all you need to use it for is 1 minute a day and your skin will thank you for it.
I am truly amazed at this product! I think it’s a great investment as the extra heads and facial cleansers run about $25 a piece!
Fashion week comes once a year in the hot and overbearing Miami heat. It usually runs into town on the heels of hurricane season; we all have little time to prepare and its always a surprise to see the aftermath. This year was different. Most mainstream shows were held by boutiques, more exclusive shows were held in private and it was extremely hard to get that coveted seat at Mercedes Benz Swim. The fact that it was so exclusive is leading to its failure. The fact that the Hispanic charged February fashion event ran by Beth Sobol may be the only fashion scene soon in Miami is quite disappointing. Enough with the disappointment; here is the lowdown.
Several events were held at the same time; making it hard not to devote yourself to one production: Mod Media, Funkshion and Mercedes Benz Swim held shows at the same time but not on time so you couldn’t catch another show if you wanted to. The Mod Media shows were quick; however featured some interesting designs from local boutiques in the area. For recent fashion, we headed over to Funkshion for a lingerie fashion show that was held up for over an hour. The same event had another event at the same time. That’s right, Funkshion had two shows run into each other. When we decided to head back to the other show, it was already over and the lingerie show was scheduled to start at 11:00pm!
The highlights were diesel and Beach bunny at Mercedes Benz which required a press pass to get in and was so exclusive only a small amount of seats were filled for the less known swimsuit designers. We hated the fact that some manufacturers also showed up on the runway but I am guessing it was hard to get designers back again after pouring rain ruined a lot of shows.
The locals came back at the last minute with Red Carter and Luli Fama joining on a week before the show. There show was packed and as usually worth seeing. The stunners went to the newbies and lesser knowns like Lisa Blue that pulled out all the stops with her apocalyptic designs.
Next year, I am still braving fashion week even those this year it was full of disappointment but trust me, there is always next year.

We love discovering new music and new people but we also love rediscovering new bands. Porcelain Black started in 2006 at 20 with the tag line porcelain but did not debut any albums until this year when she paired with Lil Wayne in her breakout song, “This is what rock and roll feels like”. The song features beats part Lady GaGa and part Ke$ha as well as rocking guitars and punk lyrics!
Lil Wayne’s brief cameo adds grit and sex appeal to an already fun song that sounds like a punk rebel anthem! It’s sad that it took this future punk princess so long to break out but it was worth the wait!
