the more i think about the person i was and the person i am now i can't even believe how much i have changed. not only with the way i am but my style as well. i know i have been working hard to get over my shyness ( its a very hard processes for me to open up to people when they are sitting in front of me.) and i think my style reflected that i would wear loud and obnoxious things to keep people away or dark clothes to blend in and be invisible, but now i find myself wanting to wear colors! don't get me wrong i still love black but now i wear it because i love it, not to hide. what brought me to this realization is pintrest yes i know pintrest! i was looking though my style board and i realized that who i am has changed by what i like now. i still have that rock and roll edge that has been a part of my life for so long. but i feel like i'm growing up a little bit wanting to wear "girl" clothes. what happened was this i was pinning along and then i went to pin the dress above and i thought to myself wow look how much you've changed your not afraid to stand out for all the right reasons. i just wanted to share this because i know that change is inevitable and i'm glad for it. when change comes your way be open to it. it could lead to great things.

I'am a big, wait let me fix that I'm a BIG fan of books. particularly style books i just can't help it i see one and i have to get it. its like they have all the secrets in the world and with the purchase of it you will have all the secrets too. so far i have Isaac mizrahi how to have style, which i read cover to cover and over and over again when i first got it.
which bring me to my new style book obsession style by lauren conrad. i got it the other day and i love it! i was skeptical at first when i heard that she wrote a style book, then i found her style blog the beauty department that she does with some of her friends and i became obsessed with it. so much so that i check it every morning and though out the day just in case they post something new. so when i saw her face looking out at me from the barns and nobel book shelf i just had to pick it up. i flipped though it and bought it and i am now obsessed (yes i know i thew that word out there a lot during this post but that's how it goes. at least with me.) i am half way done and i know i will reread it because when your reading this book is like having your best girl friend telling you how to have style, and I just found out she has one for beauty and now i have to go get it. so with that i leave you. xo
update: went to go get her beauty book and it doesn't come out until october. :( so i will have to wait until then. sigh

i have always bought into the technicolor hair craze thanks to manic panic and rockers like Cindi Lauper. the brighter the better was my motto but lately i have been loving sweet candy colored hair. Like lavender, light pink, peach, sea foam green basically any color you would find in a sweetheart valentine hard candy with the words on them.
For some reason i just love the cotton candy pink and blue. It's fun and its everywhere in the pages of magazines on girls at the mall. i just cant help but be bewitched by this new trend.
I'm thinking of adding some lavender and light pink tips to my hair. how about you do you like this new obsession or could you live with out it?

i used cut bullet shells but you can use tubing or even just thick metal beads
chain i had chain left over from my project but you can buy some chain from any craft store and cut them down to size.
any color of embroidery floss
cut out five arm length pieces. fold in half and tie a slip knot.
braid and inch or two then add the a forward knot to secure the braid
add the "bead" add a forward knot and reverse forward knot to secure it into place.
add the chain forward knot and braid the embroidery floss until the braid is the same length of the chair and forward knot to secure it into place add the other "bead" the way you added the first. braid the rest tie a knot and volla your done!
a quick D.I.Y to break up your day and once your finished you have a cool bracelet. if you make one leave a comment to your photo i would love to check them out.

this semester is almost over and i'm so glad. every year i feel like i have great intentions for all my projects, i was going to get my organization act together, and i was going to plan out my time effectively, and every year i start out great but by the end of it i get so overwhelmed and feel so beat up i cant wait for it to be over. this semester was a tough one with me not being happy and almost quitting (i came to my senses and stuck it out thank God so much happier now) but it was hard getting though some days. soon its going to be over and i'm so happy i need this break! i plan to start an inspiration board on pintrest for my jewelry, i need to have them photographed, and i want to just get back to making art just because.....not for a class, no deadline just to make it fun again. maybe this will spark something great! i cant wait.
