Forever is so sweet.

Forever21 always has great finds for summer. I love both of these dresses- versatile and fun for practically any event or outing. Plus, great prices!

Listen up.

I love how headphones are being transformed. No longer just for listening, new designs, colors, and graphics make headphones stylish to wear. Who could ask for more?


Make your music-listening experience even better with these turquoise Urban Outfitters headphones. 

Gimme.

these shoes kick ass. not only is buying Toms a good cause (for every pair you buy one pair is donated to a child in need), but they are reasonably-prices and effortlessly stylish. I love these ones because they give any outfit an extra something without going overboard. Kudos for making sparkles casual and chic.

Bookmark this.

My idea of the perfect Father's day present (that happens to be free of cost)- a bookmark. Pretty damn easy to make- simply collaged front and back, covered with transparent tape. Simply personal.

Reckless is fun.



My Take on Blood Thirsty Babes.
Prada Spring 2010. These girls could possibly kick your ass. 



The ultimate take on teenage rebellion. Wonderfully cast and brilliantly delivered. 

Enhance your view of things.

Take a chance on Love.



Lilly Allen for Chanel & pastel polish. Try French tips in these colors. 


Above, The Annton wedge from Steve Madden. The perfect addition to virtually any outfit this summer. I want. Below, American Apparel lace skirt. Be girly. 




I didn't have a clue then 

That a kiss would change my whole life again. 

Man, that girl has Love.

Candlelight just got more creative.

My Latest Project: I had this old candle from Christmas time- got bored of its generic tin cover and decided to put my own spin on it. Decorated with magazine and newspaper clipping, decoupaged over for sheen. 








Thinking about starting to sell these around Portland. 

Anyway, they are a lovely present! And always fun to create. and burn

sparkle me lovely.


Femme Fatale

Repeat after me, "I am free."

Just bought this delightful piece. Perfect for summer. I mean, minus the monsoons of rain here in Portland. I plan on donning this piece with some lac- up sandals or wedges.

Sass.

I agree, Daisy Lowe is trashy. But as a fellow bang-wearing woman, I feel I must commend her somewhat. 


Style wise, I adore her.

Read this, listen to this.

Right now I am reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larson. I know pretty much everyone is reading it, but hey, might as well join the band-wagon. It's kind of satisfying to be a follower sometimes. I'm about halfway through and it's been incredibly interesting thus far. It's an intelligent thriller- definitely worth reading this summer.

Underrated Accents of Summer

Fringe is overrated- exception: jewelry  

P.S. turquoise is always a superb choice








Wear this and be the prettiest girl there. 






Pair it with these and I will idolize you.


Suspenders + skirt have never been so in harmony. 

Urban Outfitters, Doc Martens

Spring & Summer

Polished. Overalls. Clogs. Vintage detail. Jean. Crochet. White. Feminine. Rompers. Pastel. Corset. 











The unfortunate trend has taken a turn. TopShop clogs feature high heels with edgy detailing- exactly what is needed to take this style from a disturbing shire-like resemblance to substantial fashion. 
Take a chance. 







Take a break from black. Let your body breathe with loose summer dresses and tops. 














Crop tops: absolutely adorable...50% of the time
(this style is not applicable to all women)

John Legend.

When I listen to John Legend, I'm like damn, this guy has something to say.


...


LET DOWN YOUR GUARD - just a little


pretty, baby


I can be all you need


don't be afaid


save room for my LOVE

 ...

I want to kiss you underneath the stars

Maybe we'll go too far

We just don't care

I'd like to set off an alarm today

I urgently need you

...

Tomorrow's starting now
No more broken promises

We can conquer hate

...

Don't you worry 'bout a thing

...

Let's hold hands
Like the young romance
Let's first kiss like the moment we first did
Can we make love
Like way back in the day?

Heaven only knows

...

 We fight to stay alive

We're holding on to when
We used to dare to dream

Yes, we still believe
...

Girl I'm in love with you
This ain't the honeymoon
Past the infatuation phase
Right in the thick of love
At times we get sick of love
It seems like we argue everyday

I know I misbehaved
And you made your mistakes
And we both still got room left to grow
And though love sometimes hurts
I still put you first
And we'll make this thing work
But I think we should take it slow


WE'RE JUST ORDINARY PEOPLE

WE DON'T KNOW WHICH WAY TO GO



Summer, say you'll be mine.
