Hazy Dayz

I haven't taken any photos of myself in so long, so just thought I'd take a few and share them with you.
I hardly wear the color blue on me, but after my color analysis with image consultant, Alice Sydow of I've got your Style, I thought i'd broaden my horizons in colors. So the color on me is not bad right? ;)

People who say that you’ve changed, could be completely right for all right reasons or completely wrong all the wrong reasons. Go ahead though, and think what you want to think and absurdly judge me or make the assumption that I’ve changed. But just keep this in that back of your mind that you know absolutely nothing about my life or myself as a person — how I came to be who I am and how I’m still that same person when you first met me.”

I appreciate the textiles of the Hmong and Southeast Asia….the intricate details and designs and hard-work of stitching that goes into it…The colours are just amazingly outstanding. 

One day, I hope to make/stitch my own Hmong inspired pattern…




I simply love Olivia Palermo.



I purchased VOGUE’s Special Edition ‘Best Dressed’ publication while at the store today - spent $10 on this baby! Seriously, the only reason why I bought this was because my favorite fashion icons/idols MKA were on the cover, haha. I’m not supporting VOGUE (I don’t even read VOGUE), just support the girls who made it on the cover ;) 

This is probably the BEST investment I made for a publication that is basically like a book. I LOVE ITTTT! <3

I’m HUGE love of GIRAFFES; they have such pretty eyes and they’re animal print is pretty cool =) 
My Eddie-Love still needs to get me my life-size Giraffe though since he wouldn’t win me one at MN State Fair ):


Stay Strong

A surprise Visit :)

Older Sister came to visit me and took me out to eat at Tiger Sushi with her =) 
Thanks Sis. Loooove you! <3
