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?

Hey everyone!  How’s it going?  This is L. Jones once again writing for no reason…well let me change that.   A few people have asked me recently about my T-shirt line and why I haven’t pushed it lately like in the beginning.  2 reasons:

1) Most of my attention had been focused on my other job, which is my main source of income. I need that to be right so I can be right with my passion: writing this blog and selling my product.

2) My blog was created not only to showcase my shirts and my ongoing struggles of creating styles, but to also be informative on other aspects of things I enjoy…i.e. music, fragrances and movies.

What I wanted to create was a one stop shop for finding out what’s new, what’s good and what’s hot. So how can I continue to give you the goods all the time?  By adding new and fresh faces that think like me-kinda like my twins.  So in the next few days I will be introducing a new face to DaWnYeLe! by the name of ….wait for it…. AFROKITTAY!  She’s real cool and has a taste for the sexy and simple. I’ll still be around as well and sharing my thoughts to the masses. DaWnYeLe! is expanding!  Yay!

So you’re probably wondering “what in the hell is this?”.  Well folks, this is what you call fabulous artwork  by the incomparable Jean Paul Gaultier in the form of a “well endowed” man with cologne inside.  Aside from the obvious vision of the bottle, what’s inside is the thing that matters most. The fragrance is called Fleur De Male and it’s a winner. It was introduced in 2007 as a summer fragrance with notes of orange blossom and something called petitgrain flower. This is perfect cologne for the fall season for men to wear and to make the ladies swoon.  And priced just right at about $40, its a must have in their collection.  Ladies, get your man some smell good!

So I had the chance to partake in a few drinks recently with a great friend of mine.  I was introduced to a new, up-to-date version of the Cape Cod.  It’s a classic drink that mixes 4 parts cranberry juice and 1 part vodka to create a nice bitter drink that’s not too sweet nor strong.  When mixed just right, it’ll have you feeling really REALLY good for the remainder of the night.  The drink pictured above, however, has more vodka than normal with only a splash of cranberry juice.  At first glance it looks like something very innocent…but don’t let the looks fool you.  More powerful than a locomotive, this Super Cape Cod is sure to make even the man of steel say “damn”.  The kicker is that the hint of cranberry juice blankets the taste of the vodka a little to create a nice drink to sip on.  This is a DaWnYeLe certified drink so it’s simple to make and try..but with caution.  It may lead to forgotten nights and regrettable mornings haha.  So please drink responsibly.

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?
