KRAVE Talent: Maya Guez, Photographer Extraordinaire

One of the most fundamental goals of KRAVE Magazine is to provide opportunity and garner exposure for emerging and established, yet non-mainstream talent. In order to better accomplish that goal, I’ve implemented the creation of a new feature in the magazine as well as the blog. Periodically we will shine the spotlight on a talented individual or group to show our appreciation of their masterful skill and passion for their craft. Our very first featured artist is the one and only Maya Guez.   

 Since our last issue of KRAVE ran a feature of Maya for the KRAVE Her section, we’ve received numerous inquiries and kudos praising not only her beauty but also her beautiful work. Maya truly creates magic with her camera, composing masterpieces of light and color through her lens.  

  Here is the article as well as a few examples of her work. If you’d like to see more of her work or would like to book her, click here: Maya Guez.

Diddy in Kilt - Glasgow, Scotland


The phrase of the day is “progressive style!!!”   

Diddy and Lenny Kravitz both emerged recently in very fashion forward, innovative styles. Always keeping us on our toes, Diddy rocked the stage in Scotland in a kilt on Sept. 29; while Lenny Kravitz rocked the streets of NYC last week in knee high wedge boots! These two artists are never afraid to be progressive when it comes to fashion.

Although some may say “whoa, that’s some crazy fashion, I would never wear that!” That is absolutely fine; after all we are entitled to our own opinions. The great thing about fashion is that everyone has their own definition of what they think creative fashion is. I just more so want to encourage everyone to embrace their creativity and take fashion risks. With just a few months left in this year, you still have time to make some bold statements with your fashion. You better get to it! Go on… progressive!

WOW! The Burger King NY Pizza Burger


At first I couldn’t believe my eyes or ears.  The NY Pizza Burger made by Burger King. Say what say huh? 

Being the foodie I am, I was immediately intrigued and excited but also concerned about the caloric smorgasboard of fat and flavor this would promise to be! The sandwich is only going to be featured in major cities like LA and NYC so I’m going to have to remember to try it while visiting.  But just imagine…a ‘pizza’ made from four Whopper patties with cheese, Tuscan sauce, pepperoni and all on a sesame seed bun?? Wow. 

According to AOL, “the pizza burger has 2,530 calories, 144 grams of fat and 3,780 milligrams of sodium, this burger is meant to feed six people.” Read more:

YIKES! Who wants to try it?  This belongs at the Texas State Fair for sure! 

Well I for one cannot wait to indulge! I’ll repent at the gym later. All in the name of delicious food!
