Ruffles Mania

If I ever, EVER got to wear such a ruff-tastical, sway-mazing clothes such as any of these... 
I believe that not only would the world have to take a giant pair of scissors to cut them off to stop me, but wherever I go, the surrounding areas would emerge much cleaner.

There are a ton of non-fat, no calorie ruffles to follow so guess what you're going to have to do? Oh, I don't know, maybe...

My Current Scents

Scents are special. I usually spend a long time smelling every available scent before purchasing.

I also have strong allergies, so anything too floral tricks my brain into thinking it's pollen, and a sneezing fest ensues.
Delicate Petals is infused with tangerine, velvet rose and musk. Sadly, Victoria's Secret has discontinued this scent.

Love Spell is a perennial favorite. It's infused with cherry blossom, peach and white jasmine.

Experts say scents are strongly linked to memories. Well, these inexpensive scents give me great memories (purchase here)!

Motivational Monday

This week I'm getting it right! Nice and early to (hopefully) get you through your Monday.

Heck, give me a dose of your coffee too while we're at this.

Please c:

"People who are unable to motivate themselves must be content with mediocrity, no matter how impressive their other talents."
-- Andrew Carnegie

Werk, it, OUT.

(And just how crazy is that fruit example image of fat vs. muscle?! Made me stare at it for a moment longer.)

Book Review

I finally read this popular science-fiction novel:

Ender's Game is entertaining and I couldn't put it down! I finished it in 2 days! The plot kept me guessing 'til the end! Since there's a movie in production, I recommend everyone to read it before Nov. 1, 2013!

*BTW- A lot of my pictures are blurry, so no one will steal the photos.

My Moisturizer

The following is my favorite moisturizer! I've been using this for 7 years now.

My mom bought me the Clinique 3-Step Collection once has a gift. The gel moisturizer was my favorite out of the 3. 

It's lightweight, has no odor and doesn't irritate my skin. Since it's sheer, it layers well with make-up, and sunscreen.

*No compensation from Clinique was taken for this post.

'Twas 75ºF...


And yet, I'm not complaining! If anything, I'm enjoying it immensely! It feels perrrrfect.

So much sunshine makes for crazy bright photographs and the best excuse to wear sunglasses! With my low-bridge nose, these sunnies sit perfectly and the slight cat-eye's not too shabby either.

Just wish I had pockets so I could fill them with sunshine and belt out Natasha Bedingfield.

Motivational Monday

Honestly, I really needed quite a LOT of motivation for today... I woke up (very difficultly if I may add) and slugged around the whole morning 'til afternoon, when I started seeing colour blurs. 

Colour blurs.

Needless to say, my work didn't look like actual words at all.

'Twas 71ºF...

... and we're under a severe weather watch! 

It's actually all very exciting, I'm one all for rain and thunder. But I do hope it's a no-damage sort of storm, seeing as how the weather totally listens to me... yea.


Platform heels are the way I want ta go! Platforms, wedges, the whole chunky thing is really going to ground my spring/summer dresses.

And who doesn't like a quality crop jacket in emerald green? 
(The green might photograph differently, sorry!)

Currently Listening to...


My sister and I are both delirious for One Direction!

Their current single is "What Makes You Beautiful". But my personal favorite is the video below:

"Same Mistakes" is a fantastic ballad! I sing it in my sleep!

Enjoy your weekend!

"Cut it out!"

"Cut it out! Cut it out! The hell's the matter with you? Stupid! We're all very different people; we're not watoosie, we're not Spartans. We're Americans, with a capital A, huh? You know what that means? Do ya? That means that our forefathers were kicked out of every out every decent country in the world. We are the wretched refuse. We're underdogs, we're mutts! Here's proof: his nose is cold. But there's no animal that's more faithful, that's more loyal, more loveable than the mutt."

-- Bill Murray, from 'Stripes'

I'm experiencing a huge obsession with bare backs, born from my previous obsession with cut-outs. This, this is what I need on my growing list of Summer Necessities!

Just... bare with me. A ha! xoxo

Daphne Guinness Fever

It wasn't until I really started following street photos and reading up on fashion that I was able to fully revel in Daphne Guinness's personal style and eccentricity.

All I can say is that I'm now a lifelong fan...
... and that someone should have introduced me to her a long time ago!

Few words on such a sunny but oddly chilly day; all these photos have been accumulated over a long period of time, so if you were looking for a source I'm sorry it shant be found here for now!

This is just a small peek at my collection of nature, fashion, architecture, design, lifelifelifeyouknoow.

Motivational Monday; Show Me Whatcha Got

I hope that everyone's Easter weekend went splendidly!
I woke up super early to attend a "Sermon on the Mount" and amidst all the fog and foliage, it was fantastic~

If only I had brought a better camera!

BUT WITHOUT FURTHER ADO, Happy Motivational Monday! It started off rough and though this might be late... I shall be motivated to strive for better blog post timing. Forgive me?
