Mood 13

Well, the most bi-polar immune system award goes to: me!
I've been sick nearly half of year 2011 and now that it's about the end, instead of ending on a healthy, high note, it seems as though I will be spending most of my time in the bed.

But, now that my whining is all done. Time to get puhrettey (pretty). 

I was stuck in bed watching Skins ..UK of course and fell in love with Cassie, again, and decided to copy her style. But I put my own little twist to it and my outfit for the day ended up looking more boho/gypsy:

Who: A photographer. I don't know much about her but I believe she is from Poland. Subjects of her lens include the lovely ladies Lindsey Wixson, Karlie Kloss, Abbey Lee Kershaw, and much more beloved models. I remember absolutely loving her behind-the-scenes shots of Stella McCartney and Sonia Rykiel spring 2011 shows. 

These are just a few of the photos from the shows that I had saved. I at the time said, "incredible stills and captures" and moved on. But, cleaning out my stash of photos the other day, I luckily stumbled upon these and decided to re-investigate. I have been in front of my computer for an hour or two just searching Agata's photographs and I am completely mesmerized and enchanted. 

I don't know much about photography but I do know that it takes a whole lot of talent to capture a moment as brilliantly as Agata and to convey such a range of emotions with a single photo. 

I wish I knew more about the art of photography to speak more about her work but I am simply not as intelligent or well-versed in that field. So, I can only hope that my simple words of utter awe and reverence for this fine lady will spark an interest and anticipation for her work and a certain admiration and respect for photographers. 


Is this real?
This is a keeper

Today was a very busy day. Kind of. I had to do a bunch of errands and run around trying to get things together for New Year's Eve and some other events going on early Jan. Bleh. But, I got to have an amazing breakfast with my cousin and mama (: I had yummy banana pancakes that I forgot to take a picture of but think: fucking delicious shit packed in tiny circles. Yup.

Mood 11

Today was cold. Very very cold. I had forgotten it was winter and wore very light clothing out today. Sigh, the stupidity of a college student back at home for winter break. 

But, I looked very lady-like and like a girl for once and I am proud of it. My inspirations? Marc Jacobs and the ultimate sex bomb/icon: Brigitte Bardot. (; fun stuff.

Mood 10

Of course I get sick during the holidays. Typical. I hope everyone is enjoying themselves(: 
I found this image quite fitting for today's "holiday special" 

Cute, eh?
Well. I went to the mall about 10 times and gave up looking for gifts for other people around the 4th visit and then decided to do just whatever the next 6 visits. Very productive. So what did I end up with? Crappy gifts but very sincere letters, which I personally think is much better. But, you know. 

Any holiday wishes that came true? I'm pretty sure I asked for this every chance I could all throughout middle school: 

Funny how things change.... 

Once again, Happy Holidays(:

Mood 9

It's only 5PM and it looks like it's of the MAJOR downfalls of winter. But it is almost Christmas (: weeeee! so excited. I am anticipating ZERO gifts since I did a lot of retail-therapy during my first semester at correge. But that's ok. Today, I researched internships ..bleh. Worked out, went to the bookstore and came back to make more Christmas gifts. I have made 4 paintings and 2 bracelets. I just have 2 more bracelets and three more paintings to go! Fun fun fun. 

Music: Hot N Fun - N.E.R.D.

I went for a very darling look today

Audrey Hepburn

I used to think she was over-rated but the more I discover old photos and watch her films, I realize what an amazing woman she was. I just don't understand how much power and energy can come from such a small body! 

possibly my favorite picture. xo

Mood 8

I had a very very busy day. I worked out ...and boy am I out of shape!...and I had a lunch date with my mommy did some work and finally had a dinner&shopping date with my sis before she ditched us all for Spain. 

Music: Eyes as Candles Lit - Passion Pit
Color: N/A
It was a mixture of these two... very different but very similar in a way. I wore a sweater, leggings, boots, a sort of dalmatian patterned jacket with a fur collar ... anyways

Mood 6

La la la. I've started making Christmas presents because I'm cheap and I like to use this time of year to do explore my inner-artysyness. I may or may  not upload pictures later, depending on how hideous they end up. 

Anyhoots. I have a couple of songs running through my head but I guess the main one of today was.... 

Music: Shorty Swing My Way (Citizen Remix) - Kp & envi 

Ok, so today I kind of looked like a homeless child. But a cute Anastasia(: 
This movie has so many awesome costumes that are often overlooked. If you haven't seen the movie yet, you're missing out BIG TIME.

Patrick Demarchelie - Dior Couture 

Don't tell me you don't think this is absolutely gorgeous. I look forward to seeing the whole entire spread!


Mood 5

Weeeeeeeeeeeee. I had a cute little shopping date with one of my girls. &Since I thought that having to wake up at 7:30AM during my winter break gave me an excuse to look a bit sluggish today (not that I don't look a bit sluggish every day but still). 

Music: I wrote Separator - Radiohead on my tumblr but here, I'm going to say Loft Music - Weeknd (leggggoo!)

Mood 3

I was excited to paint, sketch, shop, eat, work out, read, write, and do so much once break started. Break has now started and I am watching Grey's Anatomy in my bed...all day. It's as though I am unable to pull myself out of bed for some reason. Hopefully, tomorrow will be more productive. ... It better be.

Mood 2
Today was a nice day. Yesterday was BEAUTIFUL. Today was, nice. I can deal with that. I mean it's December but it still feels like September/October a bit. I can definitely deal with that. 

I'm not usually a lovey dovey, cute person but "Stupid Cupid" was strangely stuck in my head all day. To top it off, I was especially inspired by the first picture under my Today's Outfit Inspirations section.  

Hmm. something I've been thinking about lately: "What makes something iconic and stay iconic?" 

Music: Stupid Cupid - Connie Francis

P.S. Try Honey&lemon tea, so good.... yum.

Mood 1

I have finished my first semester. Finally, I can rest &start this thing/blog..dare I say diary?
So, I've decided to try and post my mood every day. Even if I don't post anything else. Because sometimes, I just don't understand the complicated things my hormones and emotions are doing. I just don't understand.
