i love working with art. once again he's made me look cool. lol. i had a great time working with art, mark and diem. it helps that they're already friends of mine, but they're a talented group regardless. mark helped me style for this shoot since we both fell inlove with the fashion when we were in tokyo. we wanted to bring a little of that into the look we were going for and i think everything pulled together quite nicely. i wish i could wear these outfits everyday. haha. diem did an awesome job with my makeup. i was a little hesitant at first to do the whole anime look but i fell inlove with it as the shoot progressed. it's kind of fun to play a different role. very lady gaga of me, don't you think? we're working on the video of what went down on set of the shoot on "behind the scenes" episode #6. (i hope you guys are keeping up with the episodes on youtube!)... but here's a preview of some of the pics. uneditted, of course.

have a great weekend everyone! <3, michelle

AND SO IS MY SINGLE!!! yaaay... hi ya'll. sorry i haven't been blogging lately. it's so hard for me to find time these days. i've been kinda transforming my blogs into video blogs, so check out my youtube to see what i've been up to. ( i'm already up to episode #3 on "BEHIND THE SCENES" episodes!! i will be uploading a video every SUNDAY from now on! =)

so... my single drops this summer and i'm so anxious. there's a lot of work that goes into production of a song, so it's taking us awhile to get it out. we just want it to be perfect and QUALITY, so we're having a bunch of different ears listen to it to get the right mix down. i hope you guys LOVE it as much as we do. the song is FIRE!!

i've definitely got a great team holding me down right now and i feel so blessed to be working with a group that believes in me so much. shout out to TAPE VAULT RECORDS, HYDE STREET STUDIOS, FLAVORISTIC, SMASH HITTAS, CLYDE CARSON, MANNYDAENGINEER, SCOTTYDOO, DJDEEDOT and everyone else getting down on my projects. i'm working really hard, but also having the time of my life. i'm pushing myself to be an artist and not just a singer.

i feel like FINALLY, everything is coming together. Lord knows i'm not an overnight success story and i've put in more than 10 years just to get to where i am. but without all the trials and tribulations i went through, i wouldn't be as strong as i am today and ready to take on my dreams FULL FORCE.

well, that's all for now kids... i'll definitely update you guys on what i can. but follow me on twitter to get all the latest! (

til next time,

Finding Love...

Don't ask me why I entitled this post that, cause I won't tell you. It's just a little personal reflection of the day I went to one of the most beautiful churches EVER. Ok, so I'm fast-fowarding a bit passed my Japan trip, but I'll get back to that. I just found these pics that my Dad took during this past Christmas while we were in the Philippines.

You seriously don't even need to be religious to have some kind of feeling come over you when you enter this place. But for the life of me I can't remember the name of the church. It's located in a very affluent gated community where my step-mom's family lives so it was really nice to be able to go to Xmas mass there with them.

These pics don't do it justice... trust.
(click pics to enlarge)

The altar. I tried to get one where no one was in the shot, but you know people. Rude.

I took this during the mass. Isn't it eerie in a way? But it's angelic too.

This room almost made me cry. For real. All those lit candles were someone's prayer.

I just had to light a candle for my own prayers and thank you's...

Praying and being thankful for my blessings with my Momma.

God Bless. =)
<3, meesh

I'm supposed to be in SD right now...

Holler. So... I should be gettin' off the plane and in San Diego right now. Eating duck (inside thing) with my homie Jeremy. But as luck would have it.... I GOT THE FLU!! Blah. I so badly wanted to get outta the Bay too and party hardy SD style cause ever since I've been back from Japan and the P.I. I've been itching to travel somewhere again. WHACK. Oh well. My health is top priority right now cause I've missed out on so much recording time and school laying in bed slowly letting the influenza virus take over. I'm trying to fight it though, so hopefully I'll be 110% by Monday.

Anyway, I'm a terrible blogger if you couldn't tell. But I finally uploaded pics from my cam and a shitload of stuff has happened recently so I'll be blogging here and there. Prolly won't be in order of events, but it'll be fun regardless.

Here's some randomness from my second stay in Japan...

In class. Japanese for BUSY PEOPLE. Haha. Exactly what I am.

Snack time! Rockstar. "Pork" Bun. Pocky.

What we walked home through every night. The lights were just BEAUTIFUL.

Kittles and I. <3 her.

BoA had the rehearsal studio after we did!!

Blog more after I make my bed. I love the feeling of fresh sheets. Don't you?
