this decade is soooo finished!

Last day at work today.
Before the new year that is.
What have we achieved this year?
* got my NY visa
* was broke to the point where I had to sublet my room and eat out of people's fridges
* fixed my bike and got amazing legs now (haha)
* was producer for The Last Magazine #3 (and contributed on issue #4)
* got myself a REAL paid job as Bookings Editor
* got a couple of amazing good friends
* discovered partying again!
* stayed for 1 year in NY without going home to my mother (will finally see her in 3 days)
* saw the grand canyon and death valley
* fell in love w the USA!
* got even more environmental friendly
* discovered red lipstick and leather pants
* booked Erin Wasson's show and that was totally awesome
* rediscovered R&S records and Acid House 1990 - 1994 (to the point where it's just annoying everyone that I am talking about this constantly
* became fully single
* and of course Lara Stone being my all time fav model

The Confirming Friend is ready for the new year... Which has a lot of surprises ... already I feel it.

global climate

The rich are destroying the planet. Perhaps they think they’re going off to another one after they’ve destroyed this one.” Hugo Ch├ívez
Good quote no?
It's totally true.
What the hell are all these countries thinking?
China ... Seriously??? Do they really have to be opposed to EVERYTHING?

Those climate things and environmental subjects are worrying me a lot.
But in a way, you cant do anything about it.
The people who have the power, just want 1 thing. POWER. Not a nice planet...
They dont care for this planet. which is weird. As in order to get power and maintain it, they should make sure they can have a place to do it... This planet that is.
Fucking losers.

I go from the motto that everyone of us can try and make a change.
If you, yourself, try to be good and do the right thing, then it already helps... (and then you should tell your colleges and friends to do the same and they tell their friends... and so on and so on)

EVERYONE should recycle.
Here in the US it's like recycling just happened a week ago.
At work I literally take everyone's paper out of their bins and throw it where it should go... The PAPER bin!
drives me nuts when they say: yeeeeaaaah... I know I should, but I get so lazy sometimes....
(just to let you know the paper bin is 3 steps behind them)
Maybe I should say: yeeeeaaaaaah, I know I should work and book your shoots, but I get so lazy sometimes....

Plastic bags.
1 bottle of water in 2 plastic bags (because god forbid, the bag would break!!)
bread and 1 yoghurt in 2 plastic bags.
the chicken in 2 plastic bags
1 can of fucking green peas in 2 plastic bags
and so on and so on...

EVERYTHING is double bagged!!!!!!!
and then in the supermarket here in brooklyn... those mothers that go grocery shopping for their 12 head family, go home w a 100 double bagged shopping bags...
In Europe you dont even get a plastic bag!! you have to buy it!!!!!
Here you can buy bags as well. You know, the shopping bags?? I think I'm the only one using it here in Brooklyn...
SAD !!

Oh, and then you have Wholefoods w their paper bags.... Guess what: they fucking double bag everything as well!!!
"But its paper" they say...
eeeerhh... How about they have to kill a tree to get paper...

Taps that keep on running....
What was the line again about 7 years ago??? Dont drip NY dry???
hmmm.... weird... it's still dripping everywhere... Water is just getting wasted and wasted and WASTED!!
Or people who leave the tap running while brushing their teeth... or have a tap running while cleaning something....
I mean...

Everyone must think I'm crazy after reading all of this...
But I'm not!
I just get so annoyed w a lot of these things.
And I make a good point I think.

If everyone stops taking plastic bags, starts recycling paper (and the rest) and doesnt leave taps running, then we would have a better planet.
(And maybe take a bike more often than a car...)

The Confirming Friend loves the planet and thinks we should ALL participate ourselves to make it better...

R&S nS nS nSssss

The Confirming Friend looooooves this record.
She also loves the years 1990 to 1994 on R&S records
(watch out for my next play list!!!)

Hottest picture of the week!

Some pictures you just can't stop looking at.
It's something that just draws you to them.
Like a magnet.
Look at the picture here below.
Abbey Lee has one of the hottest bodies of the moment.
I think its her boobs and the texture and color of her skin.
I'd so go lesbian for her !
Although thats not true...
I already worked w her a couple of times and she's just nice and sweet and not the hot chick you want to f***... (ooops!! languaaaage!!)
(and I'm not a guy and I'm not lesbian.... that's maybe why I think this)

She's hot and she deserve the place as hottest picture of the week.
The Confirming friend LOVES hot pictures. and LOVES Abbey Lee's upper body.

playlist week of december 7

omg omg OMG
I didnt realize yet all the benefits of working at hip fashion/music magazine, until I became friends with the music features editor.
ah haa!
It's amazing how many cd's she has and how much music she knows !
I went home w a 100000 cd's I think.
Good ones. Amazing ones. Bad ones. Old ones....
With all that new music, it makes me want to be a DJ and have the whole world listen to the music I like to listen to...
which is basically what a DJ's job is ... or not?
OR instead of pursuing a new career in music and DJing ... I can just tell you now what music i'm into and you can look it up and download it...

Hold on - Holy Ghost
Empire of the Sun - We are the People
Miike Snow - Cult Logic
Fever Ray - If I had a heart
Blood Orange - I'm sorry we lied
Santogold - Lights out
Beyonce - Videophone
Memory Tapes (Horrors Cosmic Dub) - Bicycle
Metro Area - Atmospherique
FPU - Crockets theme

The Confirming Friend says to blow your speakers !!!!!!!!!

it's all about angles

My love. My boyfriend. My future father of my children ...
Thats what I thought when I first saw the pictures below

Looking at his book afterwards, kind of disappointed me.
In some pictures he looks like a totally different guy!
Lips and nose and just the whole face is different!
See here the pics i think he looks hot:

Pics I think he looks ... not hot:

I don't know what my point is here exactly.
I was about to post this guy as my new hottest model of the month (hello and he's just not want I want him to be!! So annoying. (sounds so silly to say he's not what I want him to be!! hahhahahahaa)
Model portfolios are so misleading... ugh. or better Angles are so misleading.
He has sharp features in the hot pictures and looks like a school boy or some old school italian fat gangter in the other!
Just because the angle and the lighting is different.

The Confirming Friend wishes you could choose an angle and a certain lighting every day for you to be seen in !
and she also wishes for Matteo (that is the Matteo from the hot pics because I just hope the unhot Matteo is another guy) to pop into her office tomorrow... eeerh... Hello Ford models? anyone reading this??

Every day is jewelry day

I love new discoveries especially if its about jewelry.
I got invited to a birthday party and the birthday dude sent me an email w this email address that says:
Unfortunately, this busy woman, can't make it to the party BUT luckily I got curious enough to check out what those Same Nice People were about.
Looks like it's 2 hot dudes making clothes AND jewelry.
How I know they are hot??
Well, the dude that sent me the email, is very hot (he's sort of a friend and you should trust me on my opinion on hotness) and the dude in the pictures (here below) is hot too !!
I am guessing the "model" is oart of the nice people gang...
So yeah. The jewelry is really cool because it's not the typical girly shit.
These guys make jewelry for guys. And that's what makes it awesome!

The Confirming Friend loves !!!
