shiny like plastic

embarrassed as i am to say so, i read nylon and i love it
in fact, i even have a subscription... and guess what?
i got my april issue today and i fucking love it
i was really impressed by it actually, it was the tenth anniversary edition and it really made me remember what had initially caught my eye about nylon mag
even if every other page is just ad advertisement trying to sell me on a product, person or idea
nylon is just plain fun to read
plus, lindsay lohan is making a comeback and i can't wait
i don't care what anyone says i love that girl and at one point, 
she was nothing if not a very talented actress 


breaking news

name change

hello beautifuls
by now i'm sure you know my lovely little blog has a new name.
You might also know of another lovely little blog run by ever so sweet Raez. 
Now, you might be wondering how Raez's blog relates to my blog changing its name.
 Well you see my fine audience, these two blogs had been running under the same name of Cheap Thrills, the only difference being an "S" removed. And since Raez had been operating her blog for quite sometime longer than i, you see how this might lead one to have some harsh feelings. 
So by request, i have decided that it is only right for me to re-name my blog.
In the grand scheme of things this is not a big deal, all it took was a little bit of thinking.
Thinking which lead me to my new blog name 
Dirty phoenix
how do you like it?

p.s don't forget to check out Raez's awesome blog !


lazy friday

it's friday night and instead of going out and partying, 
tonight, all my heart desires is a cute boy and a comfy bed
but since I'm single, i guess i'll just have to settle for a comfy bed...

hi, cutie pie

zoe kravitz

did anyone see that little piece on her in april vogue?
it's essentially just vogue letting you know how rad she is
in case you didn't know, this girl can dress

...i think

Gala Gonzalez  

I have never been a huge fan
(although this girl sure knows how to dress) 
but there is something about this shoot she did for status magazine that has me lusting for

lovers rock

courtney love
what do we think of a come back?

if the photos are this nice, i'm down

no pun intended

another old editorial
this one is vogue nippon circa sometime in '07
as you can tell, it features non other than miss jessica stam
...and she's wearing creepers !

it's funny how a trend just starting to creep it's way over to our side
can be seen in fashion magazines from around the world dated from as long as three years ago


where can i find...

jeremy scott for adidas
does anyone know where i can purchase/order this line?
the adidas store doesn't seem to carry it...
 any other ideas as to where it can be found?

la vie americana

going through some of my fav old editorials...
W circa sometime in '07 

rodarte, my heart aches

Contrary to what you might have heard, this is not Rodarte's first ad campaign 
The second imagine (with fiery red head Karen Elson) 
was Rodarte's first ad campaign 
featured in Anthem magazine some time ago in their fall issue
initially, it wasn't even intended to be an ad campaign at all... 
It actually grew from a project between photographer Autumn de Wilde and Karen Elson
and then there is the new SS/09 ad pictured top
i personally like the Elson ad best

what do you think?
