Hope you all had an amazing holiday and awesome pressies!
I got a couple awesome things for the holidays and thought why not share with you all my awesome finds!
I got this rad vintage watch that belonged to my great grandmother and I love it! With a black leather wrist band and a platinum watch! Is this love?
I got the new 2014 updated Teen Vogue handbook and it’s incredible! It has all the tips and tricks for helping you get a career and developing your eye for fashion and writing. I especially loved the section where they interview different editors to get different perspectives on what they look for in an intern and how they got to the top! One of my best purchases (with a books inc. gift card) yet!
My aunt surprised me with my dream gift: a new washed jean jacket (that I will forever be in love with)! Perfect find. Perfect fit. I also decorated it with a daisy pin I found at this fabric store a couple months ago and thought it accented the jacket perfectly creating a more playful look!
(You can get the perfect jean jacket @GAP)
+ I got this Bordeaux colored infinity scarf which I have been dreaming of ever since Portugal and it goes perfectly with everything!
The other plus is that I got $20! Planned on saving it for a decent item yet spent it the next day on polaroid film @URBANOUTFITTERS that was actually an AWESOME purchase because I then had a fun photography day through the streets of Chinatown. Also ate at Neiman Marcus (the cafe not the Rotunda because I’m broke)!
Another item that entered into my life was this clean and crisp navy blue @ZARA bag that I fell in love with at first sight. It’s long and has the perfect cut. It’s beauty is indescribable.
SHARE WITH ME what you guys got by sending me pictures! I’d love to see all your pressies!

Music is the eye into the soul, makes us move uncontrollably, concentrate, focus on nothing but ourselves, makes us feel good and lifts our spirits. Whenever I’m sad music is there to help me express my feelings while upbeat music makes me feel even happier. Because I love listening to music, I was thinking why not show you a playlist of some of my favorite songs from low-tempo to upbeat:
Houdini-The Foster People
Ready for your love (ft.MNEK)-Gorgon City
Fancy (ft.Charlie XCX)-Iggy Azalea
Girls Chase Boys-Ingrid Michaelson
The Suburbs-Mr Little Jeans
Unstoppable-OCD:Moosh & Twist
All of you (ft.Betty Who)-Peter Thomas
Problem (ft.Iggy Azalea)-Ariana Grande
Eskimo Boy-Strange Talk
Sun-Two Door Cinema Club

What we love may never love us back, but what we choose to do with the love we have already, within our souls, is what helps us to love ourselves. Even if we dream a glorious dream, of us meeting the man, the “one”, prince charming who will free us from the cage we entrap ourselves in, afraid to let go of our own innocence and fall into the dangerous waters of love, we have the feeling, a feeling of reality that lurks in the shadows of our dreams. It comes and goes, pushing us back into the soul of our bodies. It’s as if it takes present as a spirit, guiding us from one world to another. Even if your dream doesn’t help you get over the idea of never being loved, we always have that spirit that guides us through our fairytales, pushing us back to the real world maybe to send us a sign that hanging on too much to what we dream, can take us away from the reality of what we love.
During all my years i’ve always worried about what was cool to read and not. Those fiction fantasies were a big no no once I became older so now it’s time to really look behind the shelves for something a little more artsy as it goes.
One book i just finished reading is called “IT” by Alexa Chung. A woman with so much inspiration from just being herself to becoming a fresh faced model with her new ‘Eyeko’ campaign for creating the perfect cat-eye (look at the link below to get your own!) and writing her new book “IT” by showing us how she was herself and how we should be ourselves to. She also tells us much about her life story and also all her role models that helped get where she is today. It’s a book you will be “cool” with and people will certainly be asking questions such as “Can i borrow it?”. Go grab it on amazon or any book store near you! Save it for a chilly ride in an airplane or somewhere nice and warm on a beach. Its the perfect book to relax our thoughts into, so go get yours now!
The second book i am dying to get my hands on is calles “GRAPEFRUIT” by Yoko Ono. She is a goddess when it comes to funky writing (in my opinion) i can’t wait to get my book in the mail soon so i can’t tell you much about, but what i can tell you is that i am buying it because i have heard so much about this book and i have asked to borrow it from many people but they are so in love with it its become there child. Its a book i guarantee is going to get you some minor fame in society so go grab it wherever and enjoy it like i hope to!
The next item that is needed to live life with is one of those filthy journals you always set your mind up to do but never even touch once it sits waiting for the ink of a pen to simply free it from it’s blank state. I do have multitudes of these pastel colored, scratchy cotton and moleskin covers journals but in the end i use my Moleskin. I write every time i feel like writing a thought down, a story, a not to myself in the near future. I always try to incorporate some memories so that my live isn’t completely forgotten. I used to write like a dog getting a new squeaky toy and playing with it 5 days in a row. But then the ball breaks, the squeaky noise is gone and my thoughts break with it. I find it hard to keep up with my daily schedule and then recopie it doen with more feeling and anger or happiness rather than just writing what i’m going to do today. I then changed my style of writing and i now write about a big topic or theme that happened that day. Instead of going through my daily schedule and recreating an entirely new form of it i then write a half story type writing while keeping it realistic.
If this is too difficult to understand, don’t worry i will post tomorrow a page from this legendary Moleskin;)
Buy yours today whenever online or at your local bookstore! (MOLESKIN)
