"Holy Flowers"

Dazed & Confused October 2012 
I always gravitate towards editorials that combine fashion with art, and there's something especially unique about the last one here. It's slightly creepy... in a really captivating& beautiful way. I've been hit with an extra bit of inspiration and energy recently, so just churning out the posts here! 

Halloween and World Series madness/major SF pride this week! It's going to be a good one:)

200+ thank you's

 I want to thank you all so much for reading! And if you happen to have landed here rather recently then hello:)This blog has been such a great creative outlet from the craziness (and dullness) that can sometimes be real life. I wish more than anything that I had time to update frequently& add a more personal touch to it, but we always have the future for that! Sometimes I'm not sure whether I'm speaking to an audience or myself, but I've come to the conclusion that it must be both, and as long as its honest it doesn't really matter. So now that I've spent a good year sharing inspiration and creating things on my own, I have to say (and I'm sure most would agree) that one of the most rewarding aspects is the feedback from you all! The blogging world seems to bring out the loveliest comments, and just people in general I've encountered on the internet! 
So one more time,

 Just rediscovering my childhood love of rainbow glitter...
 Tubes of glitter are insanely fun to photograph (clearly)! 

Below: A few designs from society6 that I've been meaning to share with you!
Shout-out to Monica and her roomie for finding these too and for having good taste in art;)

Often in design, less is more.
The top left photo is more modern and fresh, while the rest make me feel quite nostalgic!
They all work beautifully I think.

...and random photo from a few weeks ago that I edited the heck out of!

have a great week!

Sunday Musings

"I want to see people like tiny leaves unfurling from plants. Or lightning. That is who I know you to be. Both, all of it. Everything. You are empty and you are full to the brim. You are you and you are me and you are everything. Feel the life coursing through you. Unfurl and unravel your soul. You are nature, too. I fear we’re alternately polluting and taming ourselves just like the rest of our natural resources. You are your greatest adventure, your best resource: Give yourself all you’ve got. I’m with you, giving you, ‘it’, everything my all, too. It’s all I’ve got."

-Sophie Ward, Paper Castle press.

-favorite looks from UO fall 2012 catalog-

School and work have been consuming me lately! And exhaustion isn't a good look on anyone. But I guess that's expected for midterms week! According to my humanities professor, we need a fair balance of both apollo, god of order, and dionysis (euphoria) in our lives, and the later has definitely been lacking in mine. I'm probably the only one that actually listens to the guy's never ending soliloquies, but I am in fact in desperate need of an aha moment. Until then, I'll be re-watching clips of 500 days of summer (mostly that "expectations vs reality" clip, its so accurate!) and other things JGL, stalking lena dunham's twitter (simply the best) and working on sketch after sketch for design.

a tiny twist on my lace ups

Win and I met up in west portal earlier to catch up and unwind from our hectic schedules. The good: I have to commend starbucks for keeping their cafes up to date and on target with their demographic. As Win said,  each cafe is catered to the neighborhood, but this one (complete with wood- stainless steel, long communal-like tables and dim lighting) actually adds something to an otherwise old-fashioned area. The not so good- indulged in their massively recommended pumpkin spice latte. Turned out to be pretty meh. Back to church street it is!

 -starbucks. haha such a fall cliche-
Also, as my friend mentioned a few weeks back, I'm clearly stuck in a bit of a UO rut over here (although those drawings in their fall catalog are pretty cute, aren't they). With the exception of french, midterms are pretty much over, so this weekend I'm definitely up for some city adventures (helloo haight street!)

Currently Coveting: 16 hours- issue no.5: Fragments  
I can't even remember where I first found these images, but as soon as I caught sight of the minimal layout combined with fairly extraordinary images and typography, I knew I'd found something pretty special. Wanderlust is the very first edition of 16 hours, and it was this cover image I found floating around online that led to hours of procrastination... The product of which was fragments, as well as their current issue, Spectrums

 Now getting ready for a night out with the girls &mr. joseph gordon-levitt :) Let's hope looper lives up to its hype!

Outerlands, s.f.  above image via site
For my foodies and explorers, patient readers (thank you), and not so patient (but equally loved friend Rach)...
a few photos from our summer lunch at Outerlands! 

below: left photo via nathan michaels. And their famous grilled cheese (right) in all its carbtastic glory. Nevertheless, absolutely worth the try!
