happy new year randoms

Thought I'd end the decade with a few randoms I found. I especially love the Twilight movie still. It looks like Edward Cullen has sprouted little angel wings, but its actually just the taxidermy owl behind him, I think.

Details: #1, 2 unknown. 3 Free people. 4 unknown. 5 Xiaxue. 6 Asiafanatics. 7 Jak and Jill. 8 unknown. 9 Aquanetta. 10 unknown. These were all pulled from the "unorganized" folder on my computer, if anyone knows the source of the unknowns, please let me know. I want to give credit where credit is due.

happy xmas

Happy whatever-you-celebrate, hope you got everything you wished and hoped for! I actually didn't ask for anything material because I'm wishing for a miracle this year. One of my closest and dearest friends is very sick and I just want her to be healthy again. Please pray for her.

bleached hairs

A few weeks ago, on a complete whim, Lisa and I decided to make full use of Chris's leftover Manic Panic flash lightning. 50 minutes later, I had bleached a small chunk of my hair. It's hardly noticeable with my hair down (in the second photo its the few lighter strands on the bottom right). It makes me feel slightly rebellious, though I have no idea why.

beetle and flor

Beetle and Flor porcelain beaver skull, raccoon skull, and jaw pendant. Christine hand casts all her skulls in raw porcelain and at times affixes them with 18K gold teeth. So cool.

watcha say

This week has been crazy. I haven't been to bed before 2:30 AM this entire week. I have no idea why I am awake right now. I guess I am just trying to savor every part of this weekend by staying awake for it? I know I am making a lot of sense right now...

Oh and today I watched the Dog Whisperer show for the first time ever. I don't have cable at home. But I realized I can not wait until I become a "pack leader" and teach my pup how to respect me. Good night, world.

like vines we intertwined

Blooming tea and seaweed. I've been neglecting the blog because there always seems to be something else to do and somewhere else to be. However, my discovery last night of the full-length mirrors in the dorm bathrooms lead to a quick, vain photoshoot. Being at uni has also made me kind of criminal, I stole my friend's black flats.

So I have a thing for ruffles. Always have, always will. I put together this outfit a bazillion days ago. Those sunglasses aren't even on the F21 site anymore, and I'm not sure about the dress.

Details: Forever21 dress and sunglasses. Chrishabana earrings. Dannijo ring. Iosseliani stacked rings. Allsaints clutch bag. Giles&Brother railroad spike cuff. Frye sandals. Mulberry tote bag.

bullet pendants

Ordered a few more of these bullet pendants on Ebay. They are cheap! What's really cool about this one is that you can screw the cap off and it's hollow inside. You could easily store a gram of um, something...

Oh and apparently I'm on Twitter now, so feel free to follow my mundane existence, haha.

Studs are still bangin' and all, but I think grommets deserve some recognition too. I mean, they do show more skin, hah.

Tomorrow is move-in day so I need to put the finishing touches on my b2s packing. I use this black storage locker that I ordered from Wallyworld. It's superb. My brother keeps saying it looks like I'm rolling (note: it has wheels!) around heavy artillery or something, like in the movies.

Details: Opening Ceremony cardigan, dress, leggings, and booties. Yellow Box flats. Alexander McQueen leather cuff. Stimpson 405 hand press grommet machine. See by Chloe top. Alexander Wang sweatshirt and tank. Ebay grommet cuff. LAMB gold sandals. Miss Selfridge skirt.

pretty polly x henry holland

Say hello to Henry Holland's creations for Pretty Polly tights. There is a very good reason to get the alphabet ones. I need to re-learn the alphabet. These would be an integral part of my education. Fourteen dinero is nothing compared to the $9467123478 I'm already paying for this semester's textbooks...

mint chocolate kiss cupcake

Edit: My photobucket is down until the 26th. So I reuploaded some photos to imageshack, please bear with me in the meantime.

Minty fresh! These are mint chocolate kiss cupcakes. They contain a generous dose of peppermint extract, tons of crushed mint Oreos, a bit of green food coloring, and a "surprise" Hershey's milk chocolate kiss center. And the combination is divine, they taste like mint chocolate chip ice cream cake when you freeze them. Super fun to make, too.

I am in a serious cupcake-baking frenzy right now; don't know what it is. I like the idea of reinventing classic foods/drinks and channeling them into a cupcake recipe. How do piña colada cupcakes sound? Caramel apple? Strawberry cheesecake? They will become reality. Ahem, in the not-so-distant future...

cool streets

Cool streets is right. There's a point where all the black leather on top of black leather on top of more black leather, pyramid studs, ratty t-shirts, sequins/glitter, body con and layers upon layers of chains gets to be absolute overkill when thrown on all together. People should realize this. This editorial is a prime example of how moderation is sometimes greater than excess.

In other news, I'm gearing up to move back into my dorm and get back into student mode. Trying to get educated here. Wish me luck...?

"Her textile designs are created from, new, recycled and vintage fabrics which she deconstructs and meticulously fuses together into textural, innovative, and colourful abstract pieces by using a wide range of textile techniques and embroidery as a mode of painting with texture."

Anita's inspirations include Monet, Gustav Klimt, and nature. Can you see it? I certainly can.
