Truth in action

OLD & NEW. Apologies for being MIA. I've had a lot on my mind and a lot on my plate.  It's only the first week of school and I've never been so busy in my life.  All in the hopes of keeping my mind constantly preoccupied.  
Tomorrow I am shooting a fashion video for a new online series in conjunction with Alloy media and Fuze.  Definitely exciting, definitely nerve-wracking.  How I managed to squeeze this in between classes is beyond me.  Stay posted!

P.S. More apologies for those who have emailed me. Promise I will get back to you asap.

Wanting, craving, wishing, and hoping

via i love wildfox, stolen inspiration, tumblr, me, we hear it, un deux senses, flikr,

This has to be one of the most random set of photos you'll probably encounter, but I don't care. Causeeee. I'm. Done. With. Finals. Hallelujah!  Been living in messy unkept buns, sweats + tees galore, and gorging on everything within a hands reach these past couple of weeks, oh gawd. Hence the lack of outfit posts :(

Lately, wanting that lilac dress and to tie-dye my hair (who's with me? :) ).  Craving pancakes, and wishing to...just relax.  Green-eyed of all those spring-breakers making way to different parts of the world, but it's ok,  I'm hoping to be making my own adventure this coming fall to... the last photo! Yeee!

edit: oh and after having an account for two years on twitter, I think I'm finally going to use it. haha Any tips and tricks?  I am still trying to figure out how to navigate myself around.. :/  twit? tweet? at me!

L.A. Art Walk

Hipsters unite.  Tid bits from tonight's downtown adventure.  Taking a breather from my studies to bask in the creativity and talent of Los Angelians.  Gracing this city is life full of absolute culture and diversity and tonight it came alive.  As much as I love editorials and spreads, I mainly look to the streets when it comes to style.  There's just something so raw and honest about personal taste and it definitely says a lot about who you are. Basically, the night was overflowing with personality I almost drowned (there were seriously a lot of people).  The bf and I along with some friends indulged in the best collaboration in the world of all that is good in life: the tornado sausage.  Absolute heaven hugged by a thinly sliced potato spiral deep-fried to a T.  So good my heart skipped a beat.
Also booth after booth of hand-crafted jewelry was much to overwhelming for me to take in all at once. I came across rings + neclaces made completely from LEGO (a-m-a-z-i-n-g), utensils, cattle labels (yes, actual cow tags), old hotel keys, stone-encrusted bullets, and on my next wish list, a wolf/canine-like tooth.  Oh and that detailed flower engraved leather clutch! I regret not coming home with it.  :(

Indeed, a much needed night.  Can't wait for next month.  If you're ever in the area, this happens on the second Thursday of every month.  Be sure to check out the art galleries that open up their work for the night, food trucks lined across parking lots, musical performances, and everything else in between.  It's too good to pass up (like that clutch) and then you'll regret it (like I did). Sigh.
