Shanelle's Christmas Wish List

Every year I do a birthday wish list and a Christmas wish list. While on most occassions, I end up buying them for myself, I always think what people want tells you a little about who they are. So here I am! Santa, I swear I've been a good girl! lol

1. RUNNING GEAR- As some of you know, I've been REALLY into running as my choice method of exercise. I'm even running in the NYC Half Marathon in March with Team Life Without Lupus in support of the S.L.E. Foundation. However, I realized quickly that serious running requires more than just some sweats and kicks. So some great gifts would be compression clothing (which holds in warmth but wicks away sweat), warm athletic gloves (the ones that allow me to use a touch-screen device), and running socks with extra cushioning around the toes and heels which keep feet warm and dry. See...A lot goes into this. 


2. iPHONE 4S or DROID RAZR for VZW- I still haven't decided between the two (although my iPod has been acting up as of late.) I'm not a techie, I just want a new phone that works well and can do cool stuff. So if someone offers me either of these phones, I'm sure I'll just be happy with it. lol


3. STARBUCKS GIFT CARD- I call Starbucks my "office." It's where I get work done, use the free wi-fi, have quick meetings, not to mention enjoy a tall soy chai tea latte or soy caramel machiatto (extra caramel). A gift card to offset this regular $5 expense would be much appreciated.

4. STUDIO TIME- Any help with getting my album done is greatly appreciated. Sessions can run me anywhere from $120 and up so contributions are dope. :)


5. A Nice Luxurious Queen-Size Bed Comforter Set: Lord knows how much I love my bed, so anything to add to its plushness and warmth would be much loved and appreciated. I love earth-tones (pale greens, chocolate browns, etc). :)


Michael Jackson Tribute- Beyonce & Ne-Yo Video

I'm slowly becoming a huge Bey fan...Don't fight me. lol




5 Reasons Why Kansas State University is FLY:

1) KSU is the last school that Civil Rights Activist Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke at before he was assassinated.

2) It's located in the city affectionately known as "The Little Apple." Prior to performing there, I had no clue there was a Manhattan, KS, which greatly differs from the dense, intense Manhattan, NY. The people are a LOT nicer than my fellow New Yorkers.

3) There's a statue of a "spork" in front of King Hall. It's supposed to be a cat's paw in reference to the KSU Wildcats, but you be the judge.

4) Eric Stonestreet from one of my favorite TV shows "Modern Family" visits KSU on occassion. He's a former student!

5) During anti-war protests in 1968, Nichols Gym (now Nichols Hall) was burned down. It was part of a string of arson attempts as student opposition to the Vietnam War grew. It was reconstructed in the 1980s. 


Check out my boy Wordspit's DOPE recap from his HIV Awareness/Benefit Concert at SOBs in NYC


I was in the building to witness an AWESOME show featuring Cocoa Sarai, Dremur, and Wordspit himself. Sponsored by MTV Act, Rocawear, and MTV Staying Alive!


Beyonce "Love On Top" Video

When I first heard this album, I instantly fell in love with this song, just as I did with this video. Bey is just so beautiful, the song is so lovely (shoutout to the musical genius of The Dream), and such a cute video. Congrats to her!
