F&m A woman’s outfit is more than clothes on a rack; mix-and-match tops and bottoms can only do so much. Take a look at women and celebrities with style, and what do they all have in common? It’s in the icing: accessories coordinated to give real presence to an outfit and cohesiveness to a wardrobe. Located off of Sports Arena Boulevard in Point Loma, F&M exclusively retails purses, shoes and accessories… all the goodies to take you from good to glam. Accessories can transform an outfit from day to night, casual to classy, and a stop in at F&M can add new dimensions to your wardrobe without taking a toll your bank account. F&m: 3231 Sports Arena Blvd., San Diego 619.523.1624

mOUnT SOlEdAd For a fresh view of all that San Diego has to offer, step outdoors and take a hike or drive up Mount Soledad. From the landmark cross atop the 822-foot mountain, one can take in the sights of beautiful La Jolla, North County, downtown and, on a clear day, the U.S.-Mexico border. Take a date to Soledad Park for a romantic setting, or search for Munchkin Land, a rumored village of miniature houses run by the little actors from “The Wizard of Oz.” For those interested in a scenic workout, cycle up one of various lightly trafficked routes to the top and get a real breath of fresh air.

First date etiquette is no laughing matter...


Here are some simple DOs to follow...

DO Dress to impress…

You can have on a fun, flirty ensemble without being too revealing. Remember first impressions are far more important than we think, and girls you always want to leave a little room to their imagination. If you decide to show off your legs then cover-up your top half with a subtle cardigan or a stylish, button-up short-sleeve blouse. Showing too much skin often gives a guy the wrong impression; you can look chic and receive attention you crave for the right reasons.

A simple guide to win that second date and leave him wanting more By Ozra Malikyar



DO Be very intriguing…

Smile, make eye-contact and act interested. No one wants to carry a conversation with a girl who’s staring at the ceiling or constantly checking her cell phone. Even if you’re getting bored, try to think of a topic that both of you can relate to. Look for common interests, which isn’t difficult after spending an hour with someone. You’ll never know unless you ask questions and really get to know someone… who knows if nothing else, you could end the night making a new friend, and you can never have enough of those!

3 4 5

DO Talk about yourself…

It’s ok to talk about yourself, but remember no one will ask you out for round two if you continually dominate the conversation about how great you are. Let him ask questions to find out more. It’s ok to talk about your accomplishments in school, work and other areas of your life, but remember to be humble. If a guy thinks you are interesting, he most likely will ask you out again!

DO Pick the right place…

Go somewhere crowded that has a fun, cool vibe. That way even if you get bored, you’re in a busy environment that won’t lead to dead silence between the two of you. Save the movies and his place for a later date. Restaurants, lounges, and cafes are good picks.

DO try to Be yourself…

We’ve all heard that “first impressions are the lasting impressions” and “put your best face first,” which for the most part is true. We always tend to get nervous on the first date by thinking we really need to sell ourselves. If you try too hard to impress him, you’ll leave him wondering “what is she trying to prove?” Be fun, interested, and most importantly down-to-earth. Just be you and the night will go smoothly.

Unless you want to go home early, follow these DON’Ts...

6 7

DON’t Talk about your Ex…

There is no such thing as cute baggage! The first date is about getting to know a person on more of a surface level. Avoid sharing too much, he doesn’t need to know about your ex cheating on you with your best friend and how you have trust issues with men. You don’t even need to tell him if you’re looking for a serious relationship or to simply date someone casually. Never jump the gun, telling too much can lead to him running for the hills.

DON’t discuss heavy topics…

Don’t discuss political ideology or religious beliefs. Those two topics are what most people disagree upon during conversation and will often lead to one person feeling offended, if not angry. You will probably get into those discussions much later in the relationship so there is no need to know if he’s a Republican or Democrat in the first hour of your date. Look to have a lighthearted, fun conversation by discussing topics that are less serious, such as sports, entertainment, gas prices, school, family and travel.

8 9 10

DON’t drink too much…

There’s nothing worse than a loud, obnoxious drunk and your date doesn’t want to baby-sit or deal with a lush on the first date. Limit yourself to two cocktails! Getting too intoxicated on the first date makes you look unladylike and can lead to regrets in the morning. Remember, you don’t need to drink to have a good time and you want the guy to think you’re a classy girl who has self-control.

DON’t use your cell phone…

Put your phone on silent and avoid taking calls on your date. Being uninterested doesn’t excuse rude behavior. Constant text messaging, looking at your phone and answering calls while on a date is a clear indication to him that you’re either bored or simply not into him (when in fact you may be very interested). If you really need to make an urgent call go to the ladies room and call whoever you need to, but don’t have a full-on hour conversation with your best friend while he’s waiting.


48% of first dates end with a kiss.

Over 90% of singles say first kisses made them nervous.

When there’s chemistry,

97% of men will call within 72 hours to arrange a second date.

So, ladies, if you haven’t heard from him in 3 days, he is not interested.


of men said they would not waste their time and go on a second date if there was no chemistry the first date.

56% of women would go on a second date and hope chemistry develops.

DON’t offer to pay OR GO DUTCH…

Ladies, this is when we need to be a little old-fashioned. A guy has to pay on the first date regardless of a mutual interest or possibility of a second date. Once you reach date five or six, you can offer, but before that he needs to be a gentleman and do the spending!

Illustrating the perfect underground success story, Slightly Stoopid’s dual front-men Miles Doughty (Guitar, Bass, Vocals) and Kyle McDonald (Guitar, Bass, Vocals), created their own label, Stoopid Records, in the early 2000’s to avoid signing a record deal and keep their DIY work ethic and freedom away from music industry politics. West coast DUB/Rock pioneers later added musicians Ryan ‘RyMo’ Moran (Drums) and Oguer ‘OG’ Ocon (Congas, Percussion, Harp, Vocals) from the B Side Players, as well as C-Money (Trumpet, Keyboard) and Dela (Saxophone) from John Browns Body; solidifying their on stage line up. Slightly Stoopid has built a large n’ loyal fan base, and has soared to one of the most successful independent artists of this decade. The buzz surrounding the group continues to increase with each successive release; their album catalog sales have topped the 700,000 mark and the group continues to fill the most prestigious concert venues around the world. The Slightly Stoopid story can be traced to Ocean Beach, California, when childhood chums Miles and Kyle formed the group in 1995, mixing reggae and punk sounds into one smooth stylistic cocktail. Soon after, late/great Sublime frontman Brad Nowell caught wind of the group, and signed them to his Skunk Records label – while the band members were still in high school. A pair of releases soon followed for Skunk - 1996’s punk-tinged Slightly Stoopid (featuring a guest appearance by Nowell on the song “Prophet” – later covered by Sublime and released on their box set, Everything Under the Sun) and 1998’s surf-inspired cult classic Longest Barrel Ride.

slightly stoopid: Best Southern California band since Sublime, check them out at the Smoke Out Festival in San Bernardino on October 16th.




interview with

MILES DoUghTy what’s your favorite part of going on tour?

MD: Just the madness, you get to hang out with your best friends, play music, see different cities, travel all over the world. It’s not like any other lifestyle.

to explain, just the vibe you get from waking up, and you can hear the ocean, sun is beaming, literally walking and jumping in the water.

when you go on tour, is it more fun or stressful?

what’s your favorite venue to play at?

MD: It’s both – It’s the most fun job you could ever have, but at the same time that much travel kind of puts the grind on you, but it’s still so much fun ‘cause you get to play (music) five times a week.

who did you look up to for inspiration when you were growing up?

MD: A little bit of everyone, from Led Zeppelin, Bob Marley, Pinchers, Half Pint, Miles Davis, Guns n’ Roses, Motley Crue. There’s jazz, blues, hip-hop, punk rock and metal. That’s kind of what fuses everything about Slightly Stoopid.

MD: Red Rocks in Colorado or Winston’s, our old stomping grounds. This place (Winston’s) is fun, you get to get everybody in the hood to come down, but Red Rocks is probably the nicest outdoor venue. It’s built into the mountains up in Colorado, so it’s pretty sweet.

Do you have any last shout-outs?

MD: Just always like to say what’s up, thanks to everyone for making it happen for us, you know.. keep it real!

what’s the craziest thing you’ve ever seen a fan do?

MD: We did a show with The Flaming Lips and this band called Wookie Foot, and all the fans were painted up like different characters like Alice In Wonderland and all this other stuff… to me it was kind of crazy... it seemed like everyone was tripping. It was a pretty wild party to be around. It was like 10,000 people dressed as characters. It was crazy – like out in the forest.

what do you consider your fashion style? MD: I’m from Ocean Beach so I’m just a beach kid, so I don’t know. This is how I dress; I don’t know really what kind of style you call it.

I know you play music all the time. But when you have free time, what do you like to do?

MD: Hang out with friends, family, get in the water, still play music at the pad, mainly kind of relax and unwind. We spend 229 days a year on the road so when we get to be home it’s kind of nice.

growing up in oB, tell me how that was and has that inspired your music at all?

MD: I mean living here my whole life is great. I went to Ocean Beach Elementary, it’s like a few blocks up the street from there this bar (Winston’s) is, for us just the mellow vibe of being by the beach is surfing and skating… kind of goes into our music. A lot of people just don’t understand, if you don’t live by the beach. It’s even hard

interview with C-MonEy Tell me about your history with Slightly Stoopid?

C-money: I joined the band a little over six years ago when my former band, John Brown’s Body, was opening up for them. One thing kind of lead to another where I actually related to Miles and Kyle from Slightly Stoopid a lot more. They offered a job and I sprung on it.

By being in Slightly Stoopid, what artists have you played with? C-money: I’ve had a chance to work with artists that have inspired to me to play music. I feel like a kid growing up, wanting to be in the NBA and then getting to play with Michael Jordan! This summer we toured with Cypress Hill. They were on one of the first mix tapes I ever owned. We’ve also been able to share the stage with legends like Snoop Dogg, Stephan Marley, Steel Pulse and Sly and Robbie, as well as young bands that are getting huge right now, like Pepper, the Expendables and Collie Buddz.

Tell me about your tour with pepper. how did you guys decide to work together? C-money: Slightly Stoopid basically brought Pepper over to the main land and got them going. They just exploded from there, and now they have been doing very well. We’ve been playing shows with them ever since I’ve joined the band. They do have a younger crowd, which is great. I know they are digging our crowd and it’s just a love vibe.

what is it like working with Slightly Stoopid? C-money: I think it shows that we’re all hungry for music, and that’s really why we are here. We’re not here to look good we’re not here to do anything but to play music, that’s the bottom line. The rest is secondary, and that’s one thing that out of all of the bands I’ve worked for, Slightly Stoopid is to me ichiban in that category, because they’re open to that. We bring a level of musicianship that a lot of bands don’t, where they’re all concerned about their abs and playing with no shorts on and this and that. We bring a horns section, we bring the old school blues, we bring all this diversity to 15 year old kids that come up to me and say, “Oh my god, I’ve never heard anyone play trumpet like that.”

what projects are you working on for C-Money and the players? C-money: We just got done recording an album that was released on Stoopid Records. The album features some of the great guests from our extended musical family, like Fishbone, G. Love and members of Slightly Stoopid. The album is called Family Business and is available on iTunes.

Any final thoughts? C-money: Support music! The power is always in the people. If you want to trip on the gas and want to trip on the war and this and that, you know this is a people’s world. Now is the time for us to walk to the post office and the dry cleaner, live within our means and live small. We have to get tight with our families; we have to get tight with ourselves. “Solution” (Family Business Album) states, “if the people help themselves, then there will be no bad feelings.” Bottom line, stop waiting for your damn savior to come and save yourself!

Bikini Week San Diego, an annual bikini fashion event two years in the running.

Bikini week


Model: Sharona Maria Photo by: Bryan Byutas

fun fact: In 1964, the bikini made it to the cover of Sports Illustrated for the first time. The bikini was modest, brief-style bottoms and a bra-like top. 24


Q&A | Michael Lee:

What inspired you to create BIKINI WEEK? A: Since ASC was staying busy doing fashion shows, we were constantly being asked to help out modeling agencies to create fashion shows with designers. In 2008, I was asked to create a fashion show with a local agency and an Orange County bikini line. The request was for just one small fashion show at Stingaree Nightclub. I was ready to spread my wings and wanted to do more than just a small fashion event. After a bit of research I discovered that a 5-day bikini fashion week had never been done so I just went for it.

What were some of the highlights of BW 2010? A: This year was amazing! We had approximately 200 girls show up for the event (360 signed up but the weather turned bad). We launched and completed a bikini parade at The Hard Rock Hotel and walked all 200+ girls up 5th Avenue in the Gaslamp Quarter. There were about 50 photographers, multiple news agencies, and several camera crews covering the event. San Diegans had never seen anything like that before. Next year I’ll be reaching out to all of the college girls to sign up and help San Diego get the World Record!

What will you do next year to top BW 2010? A: Primarily I’m focused on pushing this event across the U.S. It’s very important to me that we continue to discover new talent and by doing a national tour, we are on the right track. So if you have cousins, friends, or BFFs in colleges across the country then be sure to get them acquainted with BW because we might be coming through their campuses.


Michael Lee is the creator of Bikini Week San Diego, an annual bikini fashion event two years in the running. He is also the co-owner of A Style Concierge, a salon and concierge service provider located on F Street in the Gaslamp District. When it comes to hair and fashion, the über-creative and ubiquitous Lee is one of San Diego’s top experts. Let his story be an inspiration to you, that one person can make big things happen. What’s your fashion background? A: I started as a hair stylist in 2007 and partnered with one of San Diego’s top stylists, Jeremy Harris, to form A Style Concierge (ASC) Salon & Boutique in 2008. Immediately we started providing styling services (hair & makeup) for regional designers, promoters and hotels. We expanded into styling for LA Fashion Week in ‘08 and ‘09, editorial work for multiple publications and styling entertainers, musicians and models.

Any other major fashion events being planned? A: I’ve partnered with two amazing fashion savvy ladies who recently purchased a historic building in the Gaslamp. They have created DOLCETTI, a new men/women’s fashion boutique. They will host ASC which will have eight styling stations overlooking the cool SD Fashion Chic below. Other highlights of the space will be a huge skylight with gorgeous chandeliers, a built in DJ Booth and an impromptu runway to that will walk out onto the street. Expect this new place to become San Diego’s new Style and Fashion Headquarters.

What else do you want San Diego college girls to know about you and your fashion sensibility? A: I enjoy helping everyone find their style. Our team can create outstanding looks for all special events, as well as personal hair and fashion transformations. I’m always interested in finding more beautiful college girls that aspire to get involved with modeling, fashion crazed students that want to create fashion shows and artistic and creative design minded people that want an outlet for their work. I love San Diego and more than that, I love the people in San Diego. My business is Hair - Fashion - Lifestyle, and I’m always looking for help and to help. So come visit me and let’s chat.

hpv vaccine girl talk:

By Megan nuñez

What is HPV? HPV is a virus, called Human Papillomavirus. It is highly infectious and is carried by both men and women. What most women don’t know is that HPV can be deadly. HPV is known to cause cervical dysplasia, cervical cancer, genital warts and other cancers. Approximately 11,000 women in the U. S. are diagnosed with cervical cancer each year and many don’t survive. Am I at risk? HPV is sexually transmitted, so all women who are sexually active or plan to someday be sexually active are at risk for HPV. In fact, due to the lack of symptoms, HPV is the single most prevalent sexually transmitted infection today. Over 80% of women will have contracted HPV by the time they reach middle age. What if I am in a relationship? Women who have only a single partner or who don’t believe in sex until marriage are at a lower risk than other women. However, unless your sexual partner has also abstained from all previous sexual activity, you are still at risk for HPV!

When should I get vaccinated? The HPV vaccine is recommended for all girls aged 11 and 12, before sexual activity begins. However, because the vaccine is relatively new, today’s college freshmen were not vaccinated as children. The vaccination is a series of three separate shots, and because it takes time, it should be started immediately even if you are not currently sexually active. What if I’m not sexually active? Even if you do not plan to become sexually active, bear in mind that the vaccine is currently approved only for use in women under age 27. That means that someday, if your lifestyle changes and you become at risk for HPV, you may be ineligible for the vaccination at that time. The best way to protect yourself in the future is to get vaccinated now.

What if I am already sexually active? Even if you are already sexually active, it’s likely you haven’t contracted all strains of HPV. The HPV vaccine can immunize you against strains of HPV that you don’t have yet. You can also talk to your doctor about getting tested for HPV infection. Where do I get the vaccine? Talk to you doctor! If you don’t have a doctor or you are uninsured, make an appointment at your college’s health clinic. Colleges conveniently offer HPV vaccinations on campus at little to no cost to you, to help you safeguard your health.



Of women say they read labels carefully, looking for specific additives


Look for specific health benefits such as high fiber, reduced fat and low sodium


Are very interested in buying healthy products at mainstream grocers. A trend that should encourage such retailers to shelf more healthy and organic products.


Believe organic food is better for them, but only 26% will go out of their way to purchase it.


Find that time is the biggest impediment to eating right, followed by willpower and motivation.

How can I protect myself? There are many strains of HPV, and no cure-all exists for all of them. However, the HPV vaccine, marketed either as Gardasil or Cervarix, can protect you from up to 70% of HPV strains, including the most common ones, and therefore drastically lower your risk for cervical cancer.

DID YOU KNOW? The HPV Vaccine hasn’t been proven to be effective after the age of 26, so it’s best to get vaccinated while you can! OCTOBER ISSUE //

8 Tips

4 to landing the job 5

By Morgan Myrmo

In today’s economy the unemployment rate is higher than average. With that being said you really need to stand out of the crowd to get your foot in the door. Follow these eight tips and you will be ahead of the game!

1 2 3

Want the job.

Nothing stands out more that passion and drive. Come in wanting the job and it will show. Forget your problems and focus on what you want. Be positive and everyone will notice. Bonus tip? Practice smiling and shouting “YES!”

Be nice to everyone!

At restaurants it is often your impression to the staff that the manager values first and foremost. If the hostess or bartender says you’re cool, you probably are! Making good eye-contact and thanking people by name on the way out gets you bonus points.

Having a good resume.

Make a clear objective and include the relevant experience that makes you a good fit. One page is all you need! Managers don’t want to read your biography; they just want the important facts. Use a decent email too; “precious667” or “” is not chill!

Nail the interview.

Leave a half-hour earlier than you need for some ontime insurance. Dress conservative but not too casual. Most importantly, feel good with what you are wearing! Know inside that you are a great fit and should get the job.

Be assertive!

With your positive attitude, smile and confidence, make sure and ask the manager all of the tough questions. Nobody wants a boring order-taker that will do whatever you want. Managers want some personality. Let it shine through your questions.

Assume the close.

After the interview, ask the manager when he or she will notify you that you been hired. Not “if” but “when.” Then ask how soon you will be needed. For example, “After I am hired, when will training begin?” Confidence goes a long way.

Follow-up with the right person.

If you call the next day, don’t rely on someone else to get the message to the decision-maker. You know who you talked to and need to contact that person again. Show that you are still interested by asking “have you made your decision to hire me yet?”


Believe in yourself.

Stay strong whether or not you get the first job you go for. Know that everything is a learning experience. Review what went well and what didn’t. Remember to keep truckin’ and you will find your niche!

fun fact: Over a lifetime, the average college graduate earns almost one million dollars more than the non-graduate. Stay in school! 28
