Day 7 – Three Colors You Like

The many shades of pink, blue, and green. I wish that’s what my wardrobe consisted of, instead of grey, black and white.

I have an obsession… and I want to tell you all about it =)

They call themselves 2NE1 (pronounced like the number 21) and they are… for lack of better terms… the BOMB DIGGITY! They are a South Korean-girl-group based under YG Entertainment. I understand that not everyone can get into international music where you don’t always understand what is being sung. That aside, I think everyone who loves songs that make them want to dance like fools should try these girls out! Their style is fire, their personalities seem fun, and their music is HOT. I would trade places with any of them any day. I love everything about these girls. They’ve definitely inspired any style changes I might be going through.

Brief bios of the girls that make up 2NE1:


Full Name: Lee Chae Rin

Stage Name: CL

Position: Leader, Lead Rapper, Vocalist

D.O.B.: February 26, 1991

CL, leader of the group, has a stage presence like no other. She’s a very talented singer, rapper, and dancer and has great charisma. Her father was an educator who traveled around the world so she is fluent in English, Korean, Japanese, and French.


Full Name: Park Bom Lee

Stage Name: Bom

Position: Main  Vocalist

D.O.B.: March 24, 1984

Bom is the big sister of the group. She actually lived in the US for 6 years before getting signed by YG. She went to college in Massachusetts! She attended Lesley University as a Psychology major but later transferred to Berklee College of Music for music studies. Bom can play the piano the flute and the cello.


Full Name: Sandara Park

Stage Name: Dara

Position: Vocalist, Fresh Voice

D.O.B.: November 12, 1984

Dara was born in Busan, Korea but moved to the Philippines with her family when she was young. She was a big star there and is fluent in both Tagalog and Korean. Dara was the most controversial member of 2NE1 because of a mildly racy photoshoot she did that was featured in a Filipino men’s magazine.


Full Name: Gong Minji

D.O.B.: January 18, 1994

Minzy is the youngest member of of the group . She is the granddaughter of one of Korea’s most famous dancers, Gong Ok Jin. Minzy is a kick-ass dancer and is fluent in Korean, Japanese, and Chinese (and she’s only 16!).

IN CONCLUSION, these girls rock my socks! 2NE1! a go, go, go!~ (Yeah I’m a bit of an enthusiast.)

Graffiti #1

I love street art! Especially in the form of Graffiti. Here and there, during my internet escapades, I’ll come across beautiful things that make me say “WOW”.  If I happen to find graffiti that causes me to make such an exclamation (or anything similar), I’ll share =)
