WHAT NOT? The team at work.....






When I first started working on this show I commented on how difficult it was to find a name was much less putting the show itself together. As time passes the hardships and speed bumps only get harder and bigger. We have been so blessed to have met some awesome people who are very enthusiastic about the concept and are eager to see the end product. Unfortunately our latest speed bump is going to put off the debut of the show a lil bit but we are def hanging in there and still trying to make this thing happen. So to all those waiting we ask that you wait a lil longer, we def appreciate the support. WE GONNA DO THIS THING AND WE WON'T DISAPPOINT!!!

Fashionable Bikinis of 2009...

Owww! Summer Time is Coming: Where Ya Bikini?
This summer bikinis are more sexy then ever before. The cut away style is being applied to bikinis and swimwear. Not as tightly fitting as other 'spray on' monokinis this season, bikini's are one-piece, with deep neck lines and cut away sides. Stop trying to get those unreachable abs, when you can jus wear a bikini covering you stomach and defining the other curves of your body. Skinny girl or big girl this cut away is the direction for you. It screams sex! Three different interpretations of the cut away bikini.

Cut away bikins the summer trend of 2009, and it's not that expensive! Cut away bikinis can be found from Gucci, Christian Audigier, Prada to Target, Forever 21, and H & M.
The one trend that I can't really get into this summer is the one shoulder bikini's . These asymmetrical one shoulder one piece suits and bikini's are for females with great shoulder structures. In my opinion, you can't have fat shoulders or be extremely muscular wearing this one shoulder one piece, because the main focus is just going to be your shoulders.
Go head, be a bad ass Ninja with yo cut away bikini's and asymmetrical one shoulder bikini's!
Get Q'ed into Fashion for Summer 2009.

I know somebody that knows somebody!

Hey Young World, your life is about to be interfered by Q'ed. If you live in Flawda it's coming at you real quick. Two nights ago I went to Nova 535 in St. Pete, Flawda to attend the Sunscreen Film Festival. It was one of the most memorable experience of my life. The first time I really realizd that I am a Social Butterfly. Yea yea yea, my mom aka Chyna Doll has called me a social butterfly and she ain't never lied.

Networking is a key in life for our generation. Forget money power respect, its wealth networking and positivity.

I met a lot of cool people that are genuinely inside the film production field. Even though I arrived late from the feedback by other party people it was a blast. Celeberities and Independent film makers were in the building.

If you never been to Nova 535 you need to stop playing, I'm getting really acquainted with the owners, the more respectful men I have ever met. They put together this wonderful party and had a turnout.

Hopefully the same happens on May 20th. If you didn't know May 20th the official Pre Launch party for Q'ed at Nova 535. Many of the people that I met there are definitely going to come out and support us because the believe that Q'ed is a show that has a excellent concept. Thanks to Queen D, the producer and the host for this whole concept, for including me into this wonderful plan, because this ish right here, we tryna make it crazy.

Do something crazy! Do something crazy!

One insight from the party, Bill Cobbs was at Nova 535. He played in New Jack City, I Still Know What You Did Last Summer, A Night at the Museum and many more. A woman who actually conversed with him said he has been in 125 film productions. 125 FILM PRODUCTIONS!

Do something crazy! Do something crazy!

Well that's it..Just wanted to let you know a little but of my Nova 535 film festival experience. I will be attending many more in the future.

Q'ed crew met a lot of successful people, so now that I know somebody that knows somebody; I'm networking to let them know that I'm here to be successful.

.....Peace......

Excuse us if we stink of SUCCESS

Queen D here reporting live from the comfort of my bedroom :) It has been a long night and I have no plans of making it out of this room.

Last night was incredible for Q'eD. We were invited to the Sunscreen Festival Awards Show VIP after party at Nova 535 (which is awesome to be invited in and of itself) in St. Petersburg, Fl where we mingled with great, talented individuals who are working in the film and entertainment world. It's def a shame that we couldn't make it to the actual show, but when that "nine to five" calls sometimes I have to listen.

We were able to work the room hand out many business cards and NETWORK. Being able to hold our own and mix in with people of such caliber (i.e. people who produce major shows, independent film makers, photographers, production people and wardrobe stylist. Just to name a few) was no short of encouraging and reassuring that this is going do well.

Sidebar: every since I started working on this show, I would say the number one thing we have been doing is trying to NETWORK and meet as many people as possible. No joke I can not stress enough how networking is so important. PEOPLE u have to NETWORK!!!
Ok back.

I was mostly surprised at how receptive people were to Q'eD and how genuinely interested they seemed. They were impressed by the idea and open to knowing more. I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity and I know the Q'eD crew is definitely feeling the same.


I dream of big things! We dream of big things! There will be big things so excuse us if we stink of success.


Meet the crew

A lil bit about the show.
The more time I spend planing this show [Q'eD: MUSIC|FASHION|ART] the more excited I get. This excitement is in light of many obstacles and minor disappointments. Who would have thought putting on an online show would be so difficult. I've assembled a small team (tres peoples) and we are working hard, staying up late and networking our butts off. I look forward to this crazy journey and we will keep you posted on (most) of the wackyness that happens along the way. Stay tuned!
