 I know, I know.... My posts have not been consistent.  Well, there's only one per week lately and I'll show you the reasons why:

 (Above) My paper cutout for class.  There's about 5 layers total.

This one here has consumed my entire life and it's STILL not done.  It's cut out of Arches printmaking paper.  I want to add more to it and maybe draw behind it.... I'll post pictures once it's all done.

Riding Pants

After months of deciding, and contemplating, and waiting.... I've bought American Apparel Riding Pants!

These pants have many haters, but I am a fan.  I have to be- stretchy pants that aren't leggings get me every time.
My whole outfit here is actually from American Apparel.  No, this was not planned but it just happened that way. 
It may just be my new favorite thing to wear.  My back is something that doesn't get to show itself too often, so this leotard will be making quite a few appearances from now on.

With Love

Ah so it finally happened.  Singles' Awareness Day as some call it.  Others say it's the worst holiday ever created.  I call it Valentine's Day.  To me, it was never the worst day or anything like that.  Usually I had the tradition of making the whole world my valentine and giving cards/cookies/candy to everyone I knew and liked.  This year, however, I was not single.  What did I get from my Valentine, then?  Well, he did quite a good job.


 He gave me the new Hello Kitty "Say Hello: Super Fun Colors" Palette!

I was so excited.  I'm glad he remembers what I look at whenever I drag him into Sephora.

 I just love the names.  They make me feel all fuzzy inside.

My man also bought me Kurt Vonnegut's "Breakfast of Champions" which I'm quite excited to read.

Now, you didn't think was all, did you?

No, I gave myself some flowers.  Lucky me.  The university was having a free flower arranging activity so I took the liberty of making myself a nice bouquet. 



My friend, Marika, has the raddest boots I've ever seen in my life.  I finally asked her the other day if I could take a photo of them.  Skipping past the rest of her outfit (which was equally amazing), I lay down on the floor to snap a picture of these.

When I asked her where she got them, she said she had no idea- they were British or something.  Well, that definitely adds an air of mystery and, as they say, "ups the cool factor."

Big Hair

 The other night I decided to curl my hair and see how big it could get- this is the result.  O my, was it tough to handle.  But O my, it was so much fun.

Wonder Woman

It's finally come in the mail!

I bought the MAC Defiance Palette that's in their new Wonder Woman line.  I couldn't go and try on the colors, so this whole buying makeup online thing is quite new to me.  But once I saw all the beautiful colors online, I couldn't resist.  


First of all, the box is a mini piece of comic book artwork.  Well, maybe that's just because I love comic book art.


Colors: Defiance; Paradise Island; Star Studded; Real Drama.
Real Drama looks like my favorite so far.  I'll post a makeup look with the new colors soon.


Hedda Gabler

Lately I've been watching a lot of BBC miniseries.  They deal with the usual situations: women trying to be independent(which is absolutely insane to everyone else in society) but end up falling in love, financial issues, marriage, unhappiness, and of course MARRIAGE.

Well this got me thinking about one of my favorite characters, Hedda from Henrik Ibsen's play Hedda Gabler.   I think I am the only one in the world who likes her character, which makes me so sad sometimes.  In highschool I remember doing a whole presentation for English class that defended every action of hers.  Ah, so much teenage angst....  I just related to every tormented character in each book that I read.  Who doesn't feel that way in high school?

It's ok, Hedda.  Don't be sad

One day I saw the movie and loved the outfits that she wore.  They were so similar to the 19th century silhouettes that were being pounded into my brain thanks to BBC on Netflix.

I was inspired to put my own spin on that way of dressing.  I paired a long skirt with a messy bun and fitted shirt to create my look.  I felt so feminine, yet still pretty fierce because of my leopard print.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit?


This outfit shows my eternal love for one of my favorite movies, "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?"

I took this shirt from my sister, who got it who knows how many years ago.  It amazes me that it still fits!
I'm also in love with my new heart pillow :)  I definitely think I'll be keeping it as decor in my apartment long after Valentine's Day has passed.
