AnD NoW…NeWnEss iS HeRe!

Bonjour. Nice to meet you. I’m the female side to Dawnyele’s story: Afrokittay.

A little about me:

Who are you? I’m a 28 year old mom and Sociology student living in south Louisiana. I love kittens, earrings, chocolate, music, shopping, cheese, and cool shit in general.

What the hell is up with that user name? I rock an afro, and I love kitties. Nuff said.

What are you doing here? My homey has been harassing me to share all of this infinite wisdom for like, 3 months. And now here I am: Afrokittay: Queen of the procrastinators.

What do you plan to talk about? As my fearless leader stated, I bring the sexy. I’ll be discussing things like fashion, art, culture, entertainment, and whatever else comes to mind.

Anything else? Sure, if you’re reading this, thanks! I’m open to any suggestions, comments and ideas from Dawnyele’s readers. Just shoot me an email at Afrokittay@Dawnyele.com. All I ask is that you save the drama for your mama, and NEVER come at anyone on this site in a hateful or malicious manner. You can be an ass, just be a semi-courteous ass. Dig?

The One

I was moseying around a department store yesterday and was stopped by one of the employees near the fragrance aisle. “excuse me, would you like to sample our new fragrance?” Of course I obliged but was immediately taken aback by the smell that crawled up my nose and died.  Yeah, it smelled like horse sh**.  I won’t say the name of the perfume, as it isn’t really important…plus I want to stay far away from it!  I will, however, tell you about the one I did enjoy, appropriately titled THE ONE by Dolce & Gabbana. Sweet notes of peach, plum, amber and vanilla take over your senses at first sniff.  This one is for the diva who wants to be noticed while out and about.  The cost: about 50 bucks for a 1 ouncer.  That’s all you really need to make your statement to the fellas.  This one is truly DaWnYeLe cErTiFiEd!

808s_&_Heartbreak

I”m sitting here vibin to the Kanye West album 808’s and Heartbreak. Even though he is not the most loved man in the world right now (yeah it was pretty foul what he did at the VMAs), no one can deny his talent.. So when I first heard this cd, I wasn’t too impressed. Then I began to realize something…what he went through (or probably still going thru..i dunno) was a harsh reality that I think a lot of people take for granted. One day you’re here, then the next you’re not. In his case, he lost two loves within a very brief period. That’s damning to any person, regardless of how strong they think they are. On the flipside, the old saying goes “you’re at your best when you’re at your worst”. The creative side of his brain was at it’s absolute best at that time in his life….all because he was at his worst.

It’s never easy to get over heartache, whether it’s a breakup or death of a loved one. People are at their most emotional state when it occurs. How we handle it and the support system we have in place are the true tests of our well-being.

Sometimes life just isn’t fair. Remember…prayer overcomes all.

Ok, so I decided to change up my idea for the “official site” a little. When looking at other sites and the layouts, I made a concious decision to follow suit. Other sites are very straight forward and to the point. One site in particular is Ser-vice Apparel. It’s following the same idea as I want; very simple clothes for simple lifestyles. I will add a playlist to mines however that gives the option to listen to “D..by L.J. radio” while browsing. I will then incorporate local artists and such. That kills 2 birds with one stone: adding good music to the site and having good artists with an overall great browsing experience. I learned that from freepeople.com :-). The site will open up straight to the models and not need a flash template or any other fancy shmancy site. I will add this blog also. It’s going to be simple yet perfection. Yeah! It’s coming soon enough….

Well, hello there!  Thanks for showing up and taking a look at what DaWnYeLe! is all about.  Our goal with our t-shirt designs is to help you beautiful ladies showcase “the simple” side of things… no disrespect to other shirt design companies. In a market  that’s overly saturated with flashy designs, crazy looking art or outrageous themes,  occasionally people want something fresh and new and..well..simple.  That’s where we come in.  DaWnYeLe! by Lewis Jones was created to bring out the natural side of you.  Whether you are going to the store to grab a few things, to the laundromat to wash, or just being lazy around the house, our shirts will fit your simple lifestyle. This is you without putting on airs; no makeup or fancy hairstyles.  This is you, naturally.  Show the world that this is you.  It’s okay to glam up and get fabulous to go out, but what about when you want to just chill and hang with friends?  A DaWnYeLe! shirt with a pair of jeans will do the trick.  You’re still perfection..just simplified!

The purpose of this blog is to show you the simple, yet perfection in everyday life and incorporate it in our mission for global dominance!  Just kidding..or am I?
