Current Affairs: I’m trippin’ — I’m caught up in the moment, right. Twenty twelve summer nights are getting hotter. Like we won a championship game, I chopped off the sleeves to my new “Eev Sahn Low-Rahn” tee, RIP. It looks like a vacation but only on camera. Everything is different when time is on your side. Like, series of beautiful interactions flooding over. Let my friends marinate for a second. It was one of those nights in the city like every night.

Photo: Take it from the top. This is a view. This is fun. This is the waterfront get away car. I have about 99 reasons why I should leave. But, looking through the lens paints a golden reminder why staying feels so good. So, hit the switch on the ‘theatre in use’ sign. In the meantime, I’ll play loud. For those who do not play, do not win. Pleasure over matter, right? — Do serious business in surreal estate.
Dig if you will the picture — Of a golden mind set with this unforgettable back drop. I’m just chilling in the cut, floating with no parachute escaping the non-essential boosters. Never roam with the crowd. Go your own way. Summer’s hero is Real vs Faux. What’s your prediction? Breathe in the future, breathe our the past. And as always, adventure is the best way to learn. It’s a fact. Kiss-Kiss
Photo: Going through a transition while playing with fire — The flames go well with my complication, no? Ps- I will be returning to my Carmen Sham-diego stunts shortly. July will be a playful game of Show & Tell. I can transform. I’ll transform. I’m a transformer.
I hate to just snatch your attention and hold it for hostage, but I think I’m apart of The Avengers. Have you ever had that superhero like hustle? Please join us, but don’t be late! We both will start off with an apology. You for not being at my inaugural New York party, and me for not having enough photos to share with you. But you had to be there. It was a thrill–let me feel your heartbeat go faster–faster. Emil Wilbekin, Selita Eubanks, Legendary Damon, Estelle and Chef Roble were at ‘Welcome to NY‘ party. (Select captures of my ‘Welcome to NY’ party went viral about a week ago). What’s that models name. Sessilee Lopez was there too. Excuse moi, I want to thank Jarrett and KP from Team Epiphany who made an appearance too. A party to behold! I first released my photos via my self titled Tumblr, MarquisPhifer.com (what did you expect), some tagline? Own name. Own yours. If I were a superhero my name would be Captain Snatched. (You’ll get that one on the way home). But until then, these few photos and my Tumblr page awaits you! –>Inside Story
Some girls play with dolls, I choose to position myself here between the cool breeze of the ocean and my lollipop. I’m convinced there’s not much in life that can’t be solved by the view behind me — must be something in the water. A ‘Go Anthem’ mid-day or sunset right here at the coasts mark. Pick a spot, any spot. When you feel good, look good, good things happen. That simple. All is pretty.
Rehab: All duties suspended for two days. Sometimes it’s an instinct to fly. Relaxation is everything — It’s the answer. But in moderation. “Don’t for one second feel guilty”, is what they tell me. My quality of life is buzzing at a 10 right now and the materialistic piece of the pie isn’t close to half of my joy. Are your eyes prepared to comprehend this? Impeccable tans that leave the smell of vacation. Ocean glow perfecto during the months of May through September. I’m like a Ferrari in the middle of a junkyard here. Ain’t that peculiar. There’s no nightlife, it’s more like a sure pleasure spa that keeps on giving. Next stop, wonderland at the dock. Come join in and put your hands up for the camera.
Photo: Natalie of Grey Ant wearing status black frames — The 1st style introduced, now considered their classic staple. This over sized unisex frame epitomes the 1950′s in an extreme exaggeration. These thick rimmed acetate shades are reminiscent of Elton John x Buddy Holly.
Let’s have a toast with 1/2 of the creative duo behind your favorite independent off the grid design team, Grey Ant. I spy a new collection in the showroom, but sorry no photo leaks until June. As you seen previously with my visit at Brian Wood, I came with a surprise organic spirit. Natalie’s response to the budding mixologist, “Hmm…it’s good!” I win. –>Inside Story
Photo Recap: Good Morning at The Smile with @LCHutch after her interview in Soho. The perfect chill and one of my favorite’s when dining solo. Oatmeal with a macchiato, and I’m G-Double O-D good for the next 5 hours.

What better way to take off from the city? Cocktails by Kanon Organic Vodka over a new collection hours before departure. A simple DIY project for the real workers of age. 1. Take some Redbull if you need a pick-me-upper. 2. Add a little San Pellegrino Sparkling Beverage — flavored orange is my favorite. And 3. Some Kanon Vodka to the taste over ice. It’s your vice, you choose how far to push it to the limit. But as always, Please enjoy responsibly. Kanon Vodka — “Everything we put in Kanon is local and organic, from our wheat, to the water we source from our own artesian aquifer. We distill with extreme precision and divide each batch into three parts: the head, the heart, and the tail.” For $$ you can bring the lifestyle to your home or party by mail! Big things come in small packages here.
+ As for Brian, I’m the girl he loves to love. “I take horrible photos, but the best ones with you Sham,” he tells me while boxing shipments without interns. I, Sham Shirley, came to save the day. Just chill BWood, I’ve never done this before but I’m a pro by default. My improv mixology skills are golden. Sham Shirley World Peace with one sip. –>Inside Story
