A blog from me to you

Goodbye 2012!

I really didn’t want to be that blogger who posted her stuff on New Year’s Eve, but here we are. I can’t believe it’s almost 2013! It doesn’t feel like it, but so many things have changed and happened. The good, the bad, and the “I’d rather pretend this never happened.”

I usually have a positive attitude towards the New Year, but I know some people are all.. “Bah! Just one year closer to death. ” or “Who cares. You’re not gonna keep your resolutions anyway.” And I’m just like  “Come on!! You’ve got to be kidding me.”

I know, we make resolutions every year, and fail to keep them, but it’s a fresh start, you’ve gotta love fresh starts.

My Resolutions.

1) Blog everyday

2) Create art everyday

3) Eat more vegetables

4) Read good books

5) Acts of Random Kindness daily

 

Simple, and easy. Well…not really, but I’ll try.

That’s all folks.

 

 

Oh yeah, I’ll be posting a DIY post later on.

December 22?

What the heck? It’s December 22nd already? How time flies, I haven’t even made my wishlist yet.

On the bright side, the world didn’t end yesterday. Yay!

I don’t know why I bother writing a wishlist because it’s kind of obvious that the last time I got something was when I was 7. But I guess, I’m one for the nostalgia. These aren’t things that I plan to receive anytime soon, just things I’m coveting.

 

  All that stuff was from topshop.

So much stuff. And I’m not done yet, some non clothing items:

I think that’s it, you can kind of see some recurring fashion themes, i.e. a “Partridge Family”ish feel, jumpers obsession, loving the creation of fashion.

Tragedy in Newtown

I know that I;m a little late for this and I’d rather really not mention it because all it does it make me sad and confused, but I guess there’s no more tiptoeing around it. There’s nothing that makes my heart heavier than when kids (and innocent people )are massacred. I’m lucky enough not to have lost anyone that I personally know to gun violence, but my personal opinion on gun control, is that background checks should be mandatory and that semi-automatics should be banned. I know this can’t eliminate all gun violence but at least we should try. I’m starting to cry just thinking about all this, so I’m gonna cut this super short and say bye-bye.

Paloma Faith

Paloma Faith, the human equivalent of the word amazing. Seriously guys. I could give you just one picture to describe it all but I’ve decided to avalanche you with her amazingness. Sorry.

Here she is looking flower-crowntastic!

This is probably my favorite picture of her.

Do you love her yet? You should.

I discovered Paloma (yeah, I know we’re not on a first name basis, but its fun to think we would be friends) 2 days ago, courtesy of iheartradio. I haven’t yet been able to get any of her songs yet and have been anxiously obbsessing over her and her music via the Internet here and here. In my opinion,her top five songs are:

1) New York

2) Upside down

3) Smoke and mirrors

4) Do you want the truth or something beautiful

5) Picking up the pieces

I seriously advise you to listen to all of these songs

Well, I just think those dresses are absolutely gorgeous! But, what I’m more interested in is the shoes. You can’t really see them in this picture, but they look really cool. My favorite part of the dress is the collar. I feel like its cross bred between a a normal collar and a hoodie. 

Seriously, as soon as I saw this dress, I thought, Sherlock Holmes. I don’t know why, maybe its the tweedy feel, but I instantly fell in love with it. 

I swear, its like those pink pastel pants are calling out to me, buy me, buy me. So…tempting… But I don’t really care much for the back of that top on the left side.  

When I saw those pants, I thought they were pleather and I was so mad I dont even know why, there’s just something about it that sets me off. But then when I calmed down enough to read the whole page, I realized that they were made of actual leather. Sorry the the top is really white. Not enough contrast in the background. But the real beauty is in the bottom of the blouse. 

I’m not one to obsess over shoes, but I obsessed over these. 

These are so cool, I seriously plan to make something like this myself. 

These notebooks just looked cool and trinkety to me. But, no offense to Astier De Villate, I wouldn’t pay $24 each for these.

Lazy Butt

Garh!! I’m shorry. I had like 4 tests in the past week. it was kuhrazy. That’s really not a good excuse for not blogging, but its the only one I have. :( Im still not done studying. So, this post was basically useless and only told you that I stiill can’t get off my lazy butt.

Hello Blogosphere!

Newbie alert! I’m new to the blogging scene, but I’ve been interested in the everlasting concept of fashion since I was a tiny tot. I’ll just be here blogging away about stuff I like, stuff I don’t really like and stuff that I feel indifferent about. Comments are welcome, but please, if you don’t have anything nice or constructive to say, don’t say anything at all. Seeing as I’m new to this internet sharing thingymabobber, I would louv to know about other cool people/sites/zines etc. Thanks for coming.

Totsiens

(Goodby)
