blow out the candles and make a wish

my birthday just passed. YAHOO. another year older. YAY. another year to reflect back on accomplishments. achievements. failures. WHOO HOO. with that said....I have a wish list going right now that I tend to accomplish the next couple of weeks or so. let's just's an awesome kick off to a new year.

- Melody Ehsani's "Queen of the Jungle" black on black necklace. 
She's a designer I've been stalking for awhile. I LOVE her work. I plan on purchasing more of her items. Her designs are raw. funky. retro. futuristic. there are no boundaries with her. no rules. I LOVE that.
-Melody Ehsani's "Axiom's" earrings silver. These are in a neon blue but I'm going for the white or silver ones. These are so sick. I like how they cover up the whole lobe. 
-Hint Mint's artist series done by my favorite artist Audrey Kawasaki. I fell in love with Audrey's work the first time she was featured in Hi Fructose. From then I was hooked. When I found out she was chosen by Hint Mints to participate in an artist series for their cases I was STOKED! These were released last week. ORDERING IT UP! Next big thing involving her work is my tattoo. I'm still playing with ideas on it. 
-Tattoo. Next on my list. This isn't what I want but I like the picture. I have 3 in mind I am for sure set in stone with. At this point it's all about finding the right tattoo artist that can get the work done and done right. I have a feeling this will be happening very shortly, yes, very very shortly. 

Well, this is all that I have listed for now. Like I said earlier, I plan to get these marked off my list in the next couple of weeks. Here's hoping! The birthday list doesn't stop here. Who says there needs to be an end?

"Sick b*tch, chicken noodle soup face"

Damn, Angel Haze goes hard in the paint. Born in 91 she started writing poetry at the age of 11. She never thought her crazy words could turn into music until a friend convinced her to make them into raps.
RESULT = dopeness in can. Think hybrid of Minaj and Rhianna. I already copped both her albums. FAN already.

urban craft uprising

I am extremely ecstatic for this year's Urban Craft Uprising!! Let me fill you in on what it is exactly.... Urban Craft Uprising is Seattle's largest Indie craft show. Their goal is to build a successful and fun showcase for local artists/crafters to sell their awesome work. It's also a way to show support to the DIY community. I'm all about supporting local artists and the work these people have is just amazing!! So funky, fresh, unique, organic, and original. People get to choose from a wide variety of hand crafted goods, including clothing of all types, jewelry, gifts, bags, accessories, aprons, children's goods, toys, housewares, paper goods, candles, art, food, AND SO SO SO MUCH MORE! It's crazy. I literally have to have someone come with me to support my pockets and bad spending habits. LOL. I'm jumping with excitement...I seriously CANNOT WAIT!!

"mentor me, please"

Fashion. love. love love. I think I really found myself, my trend, my niche after freshmen year. Being different is my thang and I truly believe in standing out and being funky. I've always been into fashion and never really knew where to start with. I guess you can say...I never had the courage to really take it forward. I really should have followed my heart and went for it straight out of high school. Instead I took the route of chillaxin, kickin it, and straight up livin the life of a 19 yr old. Anyways, now that I'm at the age of "Crap, I seriously need to do something with my life...." I've been slowly taking steps to turn my dreams into reality. Will it ever happen?? Who knows...doesn't hurt to try though, right? I'm a huge follower/fan/lover of Hellz Bellz. I already have too many pieces of this line and best believe I'm not done. I have mad respect and love for the designer/creator Lanie and I CANNOT wait to attend this event sponsored by to inspire me. Get up on it! If you don't you know, jiggah.

"....Lights. Camera. Action...."

Have you ever felt the WOW factor? I'm sure this little ol theater in downtown Seattle isn't a big whopping deal but it was my first time at an actual old school theater. I love interior design....would I be good at it? Nah. I don't think so.... Do I enjoy looking through mags, reading articles, surfing the web, finding inspiration of it? YEAH. So, this was definitely a moment of "Wow!" What is so awesome about this interior structure of a joint??? Hmmm. I like how it has a vintage feel. The ambiance. The lights. The colors. So.... So.... makes me want to become an actress and sing on stage feeling. HA! No, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to take these shots. I was inspired.

caught on camera

I don't really want to make this blog to personal but I decided to post this awesome shot that I took of my son being held by one of my friends. The lighting, the atmosphere, the moment. It was too perfect to pass up....

walkin on air

as I stood waiting for my friend to arrive so we could go out to eat at a fatty burger joint, I realized how gorgeous the ground beneath me was. How often do we actually look down?? The colors of the green grass, the gray cement, and the shadow from my car blocking the sun made a shot worth taking. I had to throw in my sparkle TOMS.... hey, wouldn't it be cool if we could all walk on air? I think so....

There's something about layering that I love. I'm really feeling this entire outfit....hmmm perhaps an autumn wardrobe is in store....

"....stop or i'll shoot!"

This is just pure awesomeness. I can honestly say I feel a little jealous right now....
