Another one? So Soon? Hell yeaaarrrrhhh!

Ok so I have stuff to talk about and I'm really getting into the swing of this Blog thing!



Ok, so I have been pointed in the direction of a DEVINE new jewellery designer from Birmingham.... ADRIANNE. She designs and makes (with her own that's A skill) a beautiful range of vintage inspired jewellery including 'teatime necklaces' and 'retro daze' earrings! My personal favourite is the Kiki Curiosity Charm Bracelet (see pic) which, as with all of Adrianne's jewellery completely bespoke. As it says on the site: no two are the same, SO GO COP THAT UNIQUE BLING LADIES! So cute!

Check out Adrianne and her stunning jewellery here:


A guys clothing range that still looks AWESOME on girls? .......we like!
Hot T designs, jumpers and caps, check them out here:
Or go to: THE CANDY STORE in Picadilly Arcade, Brum.....selling exclusively. I will be there this sat to get me a T for customisation woop woop!

/\/\/\/\/\/\/\MUSIC SHIZ/\/\/\/\/\/\/\

Erykah Badu is hitting Brixton Academy on Sat July 24th to showcase some tracks off her amazing new album 'Amerykah Part 2: Return Of The Ankh'. Now, if you haven't got it yet,what the hell are you waiting for?! It's like a return to her former glory of 'Baduizm' well, almost.

There's plenty of live instrumentation and  compared to the political tones in Part 1, it's much more romantically focused….GO GET IT! Personal faves include: 'Gone Baby Don't Be Long', 'Umm Hmm' and 'Window Seat' see the video here:

Tickets to the gig are just £36 each, all in....cop them here:

/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\ I-TUNES (/LIMEWIRE IF YOU'RE BAD LOL) RECOMMENDATIONS/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\

Produced by BoysNoize.....sick electro to skank to me thinks!

So I heard this on Mistajam's show a week ago and it is one of THE BADDEST, wickedest (and every other urban superlative you can think of) tune I have heard in AGES! Unfortunately Dirtee Stank (Dizzee's record label) have had it removed from youtube so I can't show you the vid YET! but listen to 1xtra between 7amd 10pm Mon - Thurs, Jam is sure to play it a few times! It's dubstep meets electro meets jungle: IT's SICK!!!!

So Xtina is back with a new album 'Bionic' and this is the first single to be leaked. I'm kinda feelin' this tune, but only coz of Nicki really. I get the feeling Christina's going hard to try and compete with the likes of GaGa (who she looks remarkably similar to in this vid) so she's gone FREAKALEAK with the lyrics. See what you think.....(the vid is not made yet, this is just the music)


4,3,2,1 looks set to be a BANGER! Hitting cinema's on June 2nd I canni wait!
Written and directed by the genius that is: Noel Clarke. It's described as a ‘sexy, gripping thriller’ following three days in the lives of four best friends who become involved in a major diamond heist. Ok, so sounds slightly unrealistic but fun, no? Featuring a cool UK cast including Kidulthood's hilarious Adam Deacon, Noel Clarke himself and a chick from St Trinians to name a few! I am looking forward to seeing the character's styling, espescially after seeing the pic below from the film. (Very Carrie-esque outfit from SATC2, chick 2nd from the right don't you think?!)

Another reason to go see it is the soundtrack....I'm always impressed by Noel Clarke's choice of music and with artists like Plan B, Davinche, Mz Bratt, the stunning Paloma Faith listed I'm sure this will live up to my expectations once again! I'm excited to hear ‘Keep Moving’ with Adam Deacon RAPPING!!! And featuring Mr Bish Bash Bosh himself:  Bashy <3 Go to for more info.

WINNIE (no not 'The Pooh') will start filming early June. It's a biopic of the infamous Winnie Mandela, the ex-wife of South African Leader and true freedom fighting icon, Nelson Mandela.
Starring Jennifer Hudson as Winnie and Terrence Howard as Nelson. It's likely to detail the fraud, kidnapping and murder controversies that Winnie has become synonymous with. Revered by some and reviled by others….'Winnie' is bound to cause a polarisation amongst movie goers especially in S Africa.

But check out the pics....I reckon the Casting Director's done well with Jen!

Now this next bit also falls into the 'holy shit, is that 50?!' category.....
This week, 50 shocked the world by releasing pics of himself looking skeletal and downright crackhead-ish in prep for a new film he is working on. 'Things Fall Apart' is co-written by the (once) big man and details the life of a professional footballer who is daignosed with cancer. He dropped a jaw-dropping, pain-inducing, vom-helping (?) 54lbs for the part!!! (That's like 4 STONE ladies!!)
He survived on a ridiculously low cal liquid diet (euww gross) and pounded the treadmill for 3 hours a DAY, now THAT's dedication. Bad news for 50 is that the film has yet to set a release date, which doesn't bode well for its expected quality! Let's hope it wasn't all in vein eh! Now bring back the 50 we know and love (to hate)!

Ciao for now

Jessica Rabbit's News & Views

Hey Guys and Gals,

I be back....I'd love to say i have been busy sunning myself on the shores of St Tropez, but, well, that would be a big fat lie. I have been working my shapely ass off doing all sorts of interesting and not-so-interestings things, mostly work related, but hey a girl's gota have fun too!

Anyway....onto what's really important eh! NEWS AND VIEWS of the Urban Fashion world....


My Fash Harem.....

How HOT are printed harems right now? This cute pair is good old Toppers but just about everywhere worth it's fashion mustard is jumping on this trend.

Check out one of the modern day fashion icons...Chloe Sevigny wearing a leopard print pair.
American apparel have their traditional aztec print in harems now also.
A step further to that and perrrfect for summer is the harem shorts! Again, Toppers is leading the way with some gorgeous sporty version, beaut with a pair of gladiator sandals for trendy cas or a pair of huge heel wedges for clubbing.


The Launch of H&M's 'Fashion Against Aids' Festival Range launches this Thursday on 20th May in the UK. It looks A-MAZING!

Here's a few pics to give you a taste....the denim dress is miiiine! Katy Perry has already been spotted in it....don't you wish you were a celeb and could everything for FREE before it even comes out?!

The coral coloured leopard print dress is another nice piece and a percentage of the proceeds will go to charity....even more of a reason to purchase (as if you ever needed one).

Game, Set, Match made in Heaven

Common has let slip that he and his tennis ace girlfriend, Serena Williams are headed down the aisle in the not too distant future….
After 2 years of dating, Common Sense was recently quoted on the Ellen Show in the US saying: “I definitely want to get married, and I’d love to have kids. Let’s just say, Serena and I want the same things, and soon”
From Erykah B to Serena….quite a change huh?! (Beauty to the beast? Harsh but realistic people....just look at the pic!!!!)

Suge takes it from the Streets to the Courts?
In 2005 on a night out, Suge Knight, founder of Death Row Records was shot in his leg and to this day, the Police still don’t know who did it….what a shocker. Even though the VIP party hosted by Kanye West was filled with almost 2000 people including celebs like Jessica Alba (hottie), the BEP and Paris Hilton….no one saw a thing! WOW! Anyways, Suge (aka the bald guy who caused a whole heap a shiz between East & West coast rappers) is now claiming around $1 Mill in damages from ‘Ye, he says that the Rap Star failed to provide adequate security thus allowing him to be shot….stay tuned to see the outcome!

/\/\/\/\/\MUSIC/\/\/\/\/\'s amazing, and best of all, FREE!

Teedra Moses (Quelle surprise!) is this month's recommendation. If you don't have it yet, shame on you! Her new mixtape: Royal Patience is OUT NOW on her website to download for freeeeeee!

Go to and get it quick!
Personal faves of mine are: 'Oh Love', 'Kisses Never Taste So Sweet' & 'All That I Have'......LYRICS for days! Great to wind down to, sing along to or make babies to :-) Enjoy!



Ok so we've all seen 'Step Up' and 'Save The Last Dance' the cheesy American dance films so i guess I was expecting the same theme with this UK version. However, I was pleasantly surpirsed! Yes, it's still cheesetastic in some parts and yes, some of the acting leaves a lot to be desired but what saves this film and makes it so good is the DANCE TALENT...featuring the likes of Flawless and Diversity plus various well known London Street Dancers / B Boys and Girls / Krumpers it showcases the UK Scene brilliantly. you HAVE to watch it in 3D, the effect of the dancing is tenfold!
