She's Back!



Yes America, Whitney is back! Unfortunately, we at Splash won't be for a while. Until we can learn to balance our schedules and this thing we call college, we will be on a hiatus. Also, when we return we will try to come back with an all new Splash for the readers. New content, new series, and maybe even a new design...who knows! All we know is right now we have to get our lives in order to come back afresh and renewed! Thanks to everyone who reads (all two of you lol) and we hope to gain a lot more readers upon our return!

Exit. Stage Left.

The time has come for all of me and my high school friends to depart on different paths. Yesterday I moved into St. John's University as an official student at 4:30 p.m. (I was late). The summer has ended and the grind is soon to begin. It's definitely time to plant the seeds to my future tree. Me and Cia.E are now enrolled college students, and we are also now apart. She has stayed in CT while I have ventured off to the big NYC! We will continue to blog and try to build our fan base at our separate campuses (I don't know about Cia though...you know how she do lol). We have left the building but don't sleep on us because we are still striving to be the best.

Guess whose doing his thing on the low? No, its not the bum in your basement, but it's that loveable character know as the Smart Guy. Tahj Mowry, has his own Youtube channel where he uploads videos of himself, enjoying the should I say "Has-ban life". Its somewhat entertaining, and you no what, "You Better Go Boy!!"

So as you guys already know, I LOVE sunglasses. This time is obviously no different lol. These are the "Luciano" by Retro Super Future. I like the shape, they're "fresh"...in both variations of the word. They retail for $178 at 80's Purple.

This is the "Rubik's 360", the long-awaited follow-up to the wildly popular Rubik's Cube. And if you thought the Rubik's Cube was a challange, then you haven't seen anything yet. The new "Rubik's 360" is said to be much harder than it's cousin. It includes 3 spheres, 6 colored balls that go directly into the corrosponding slots of the same color in the inside of the outermost shell. The Sphere is now on sale at Rubiks.com for $16.99.

Back On Top

My deepest apologizes goes out to the great K-West. As BKeem and I were surfing the net we came upon his reaction to the whole situation. As a fan, I understand why i fell off his charts very quickly because of this demeaning rumor. Again I apologize, and Yeezy you are the Best!... well one of them lol

Via Kanye West’s blog:
I WAS JUST LISTENING TO WENDY WILLIAMS AND HEARD SOME QUOTE ABOUT ME SAYING I’M THE NEW KING OF POP. NOT ONLY DID I NOT SAY THAT, I HAVEN’T SAID ANYTHING. IT MAKES ME FEEL BAD THAT OBVIOUSLY I MADE PEOPLE FEEL THAT I WOULD BE CORNY ENOUGH TO SAY SOMETHING SO WHACK AFTER THE PASSING OF AN IDOL, A LEGEND AND MORE THAN THAT A HUMAN BEING WITH FEELINGS AND FAMILY. IT SCARES ME TO THINK WHAT PEOPLE WILL BELIEVE, WITHOUT EVEN A SOURCE. ANY RANDOM PERSON CAN TYPE SOMETHING ON THE INTERNET AND THEN THE WORLD BELIEVES IT. I DON’T TALK TO PRESS OR DO TV OR DO PROMOTIONS OF ANY SORT. I’VE STOPPED CHASING AND BUYING INTO FAME. FAME IS LIKE CIGARETTES WITH NO SURGEON GENERAL WARNING. IT DESTROYS MOST PEOPLE AS IT DID TO THE TRUE AND ONLY KING OF POP. WE EXPLOIT OURSELVES AND EAT OUR OWN EGOS ‘TILL THERE IS NOTHING LEFT. I HAVE A FEELING THAT THIS WON’T BE THE LAST FALSE STATEMENT WITH MY NAME ON IT, BUT THIS WILL BE THE LAST TIME I DEFEND MYSELF. I’M DONE."

Splash of Taste

In these difficult times, deals are hard to pass up. Me and Cia.E decided to try the "2 for 20" deal at both Chili's and Applebee's restaurants. Here is a review

Chili's:

Cia.E seemed to especially like the food and the service here. The restaurant is widely known and has a large fan base (if restaurants can have those). Chili's has a southwestern flair with items on it's menu such as Fajitas, Quesadillas, and Tacos. The service was quick and friendly, so a tip was well deserved. The Chili's "2 for 20" deal includes ONE appetizer to share (half order), TWO entrees of your choice (from the list of things that is part of that deal), and ONE dessert for two to share. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience and would definitely take advantage of this offer again.

Applebee's

Like Chili's, Applebee's is a well known restaurant also. Applebee's menu consists of a melting pot of different dishes from all types of cuisine like Burgers, Fajitas, and Pasta. The way that the deal works is that you must put in your order all at the same time, i.e. appetizer and entree. Because of this, everything basically came within five minutes of each other, so our food came when we had just started working on the appetizer. We also went early in the day when they virtually had no customers btw. The "2 for 20" deal includes ONE appetizer to share (full order), TWO entrees of your choice (from the list of course), and no dessert. Also, I will like to add that Chili's had at least 15 items to order from in their deal and Applebee's only had about 6.

Now, Cia.E decided that she was going to order a Chocolate Chip Cookie Sundae for a dessert. We were already full from the appetizer, and took our entrees to go. Without even explaining just look at the pictures.






By that last picture, I had told Cia.E I hate her countless times for ordering this, and I had also felt as if my stomach was about to literally burst.

Zebra Meets Cheetah!



College is slowly approaching, and for us girl that means its time to start worrying how and if our hair is going to be done! Now lucky me, I have just bought the most awesome flat iron in the world, or so i think lol. This flat iron does everything i would ever need it to do, and for those who know me this is a shocker. When I say that my hair would never be done properly i mean it. But this baby got me good!!!
Features: as quoted from the site

sleek, ergonomic design with non-slip grip (featured in picture3)
Heats to maximum temperature swiftly and remains constant throughout use
Swivel cord prevents tangling
Hooked end for easy hanging and storage
Variable temperature settings for all hair types
110-120 volts, 60Hz
Temperature gauge offers ranges from 140˚ F to 410˚ F (60-210 degrees C)
90 watts
1 year warranty

Now this flat iron usually goes for 60 buckaroos, but with my bargain buster behind, i got it for... drum roll pleas... $29.99! Isn't that a deal... I love it, especially because its Zebra printed as well.
P.S- My nails are uber cute and y'all know it! It's Cheetah!!! Took me forever to do too!

Who Died And Made You King?


Now I am having a very hard time even wrting this but i feel the readers have a right to know that... I have official denounced my K-West Addiction. This incident occured approximately around 11:30pm last night. I was watching that greatest "Wendy Williams Show" HOW YOU DOING!!! lol, and then a stumbled upon this startling info. Now im not trying to put anyone down but Kanye had to reason to push something that wasnt meant to happen so quickly...
"“You know everyone loves and respects Michael but times change. It’s so sad to see Michael gone but it makes a path for a new King of Pop and I’m willing to take that on.”

The ego-inflated West continued: “There’s nobody who can match me in sales and in respect so it only makes sense for me to take over Michael’s crown and become the new King.”"
Now West even went on to speak anbout Elvis but thats not the pressing issue seeing how my Love MJ was mentioned... Im sorry Kanye West but you are not, wont and never will be the King of PoP. (http://www.staralicious.com/kanye-west-im-the-new-king-of-pop/)

Girls? No Sunglasses? Yes

Want good sunglasses, but recession is kicking your butt like Mike Tyson in his prime? Have no fear, 80's Purple is here. 80's Purple is an upscale online retailer with steep prices, however they have their own brand of sunglasses for $10. The glasses are very sturdy and as perfectly crafted as ten dollar sunglasses can get. I think these are a good deal for those on a budget (like me), but DON'T get it twisted, there is still shipping and handling. Click the website link if you're interested. Happy Shopping.

Love. It's A Commitment.


Oh Winter Jacket, how I love thee. But I must let thee go. I saw these Wings + Horns Fall/Winter 09 Jackets on Highsnobiety today and finally felt the sensation of love. I nearly died when I peeped these. My pea coat lasted me for two years and is still going strong but I feel like I need a newer sexier model. The jacket is a mixture of leather and cashmere (so it ain't cheap, no pleather and fuzz 'round here). Well it's still July so that means if I find a job/whore myself out/ beg the parents (yea i live at home, i'm 17. So what?!), I might be able to get them. Time to get on the grind, NYC '09 is coming.

This is the result of a Reebok and Uslu Airlines collaboration. This perticular sneaker is called the Retroball for it's disco ball look. These shoes make me feel like i can "Fly Away" and go "Walkin' On The Moon" lol. I think that Reebok is really trying to get back to being a major contender in the sneaker world and I say: good for them. These are a solid sneaker with incredible face value...or in english: they look good. I would roc 'em. Would you?

More than meets the Eye


The number one movie in America? Heck yeah! Today while viewing this ultimately greatly superbly produced movie, I noticed that all the elements that make a movie great were present. Now i'm not an action type of girl, but this movie redefined action and made it more tasteful! I loved the graphics that made it blend in to the real world so fluently, Kudos to those graphic creators! The mix of action, romance and comedy kept every single head in theater 5 staring intently to find out what was bound to happen next. I definately have to give a shout out to the comical parents of the protaggonists, especially his "reffered up" mom (lol). Hope I'm not giving too much away, but they main point is this is a Must See, if you haven't already. Oh yea, the most important part of the experience of watching that movie is that i got to use my student Discount!! Wooh go college! (lol)

So as you know The Current Number 1 Movie in America is Transformers 2 (which By the way i am going to see today, can't wait!). But in this movie there is the Singer/Actor Tyrese Gibson, and yes i am hooked on this hottie. Why you ask? Well for one he is recognizing the past MJ with his 'MJ Initiative'. In this he would like everyone to wear black over the July 4th weekend in remembrance of the greatest pop sensation alive!
Secondly I love him because i get to download one of his hottest international single for free! No im not going to be selfish, you can too just go to his twitter page and you can enjoy this song aswell!!! It should be one of the first post. My hottie of the week!

Fresh Baby: Solid Colors





Lately, the "trend" has been to wear things with a lot of print, whether it be all-over or just designs. Solid Colors are now the minority of clothing and it is definitely fresh. Don't get me wrong, I like designs and stuff like that but sometimes less is just so much more. Too much pattern is nasty, so if you wear a lot of pattern, wear something solid to offset it. Take the items shown above for example.

After Dark

Okay, I'll admit it. I'm a night owl. For some reason, I just can't seem to get to bed before 2 a.m. I don't know what it is but I know I have to go to bed and I just stay up like I don't have school in the morning. Then, when my alarm comes on at 6:30, I'm left wondering why I feel like I did eight straight shots of Vodka the previous night. But aside from all that, when I am up I do like to watch Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. I don't know what it is, but I actually enjoy his post-Jay humor. lol. I'm starting to think that it's his band, The Lengendary Roots Crew (especially when they slow jam the news). Maybe I'm weird....who knows. But the next time you're up past 12:35, watch it and see what I'm talking about.

Fresh Baby

Recently I was reading my March 2009 issue of VIBE magazine (the one with Keyshia Cole and her mother on the cover) and I came across this article entitled "I'm So Glad The Idea Of Fresh Is Back".  Here's an excerpt: 

MAN IT'S TIME. Fresh is not about logos. Fresh is not about fitting in. Fresh is about putting all the ingredients together and coming up with something original. Something that pops. That screams, individual. Fresh isn't limited edition. Fresh isn't even custom. Fresh is improvisational. It's off-the-head-freestyle. Fresh stays out late and still rises with the doves and eagles. Fresh mixes what one has with shreds with shreds of what one would not, really, have purchased. Fresh is the dreams of how we will be and what will rock soon-oh, so soon. And fresh, in its infinite variety, is back.

Fresh has been rebirthed, it does not have a name, color or season. And if fresh has been reborn, then it can only be a "fresh baby". Right? Well now that fresh has returned, I am going to start a small series called "Fresh Baby" which will basically show a couple of items that can rebirth your own fresh style. For today, the fresh item is "Bow Ties". They can work for either men or women, and add a fun spin to whatever you're wearing. Here's a few:
