hamilton perkins collection

Last weekend Chris shot some pictures of Hamilton Perkins new 2010 line. I had no idea I would be taking pictures that day, but I think they turned out good none the less. Hamilton let me keep the shirts I modeled too! I really liked the weekend bag I modeled. It kind of has a vintage look to it. Anyway, you should check out the Hamilton Perkins Collection! Hamilton and I are also working on a little something something too!

the youth as we know it

Lately, I've been looking around for a good eye cream. I've tried Clarins and Mario Badescu eye creams and just wasn't very satisfied. I took my quest for "the perfect eye cream" to Sephora and the lady that helped me out there was just raving about this anti-aging eye cream from Bliss. She kept going on and on about how you can instantly see results, how it has the top 10 anti-aging ingredients and yada yada yada. I'm a little skeptical at this point, so I asked for a sample and decided if this product is just that great, I'll see for myself. I've been using my sample for about 3 days now and I already can see a difference!!! My eyes are much brighter and the little dark circles I did have are gone! I really love this stuff!!! I'm adding it to my Christmas list asap! This eye cream gets two thumbs up from me.

P.S. I hope everyone has a great weekend and we only have 1 more week til Christmas! Let's get excited!

Just ordered these babies with some good ol' birthday money. By the looks of things, it seems like I'm in the middle of a shoe obsession.

very merry un-birthday

So, I turned 25 on the 23rd of November and I'm just now showing you all my goodies. Chris bought me some Dr. Martens boots and Marc Jacobs newest perfume, Lola. To all of you that haven't had the chance to smell this perfume yet...IT IS AMAZING. I love it. It also stays on through out the day too! I highly recommend it. [Thanks hunny!]

I've also been looking for some black pumps to spend some of my birthday money on. After looking pretty much everywhere and finding everything that I liked wasn't in my size or just wasn't available anymore, I found these from Steve Madden! They kind of remind me of these pumps from Urban Outfitters.

So, now that I've found some black pumps, I can cross that off my Christmas list. Have any of you ladies made a Christmas list yet and if so lets see it!? Maybe I'll post mine!

introducing little aida

If any of you are wondering where I have been or why I haven't been posting, it has been because of this little thing right here! Chris got me her for an early Christmas present! She has been the sweetest little girl. I promise to get back to posting as soon as I can. There is so much I want to talk about!!! Is anyone ready for the upcoming holidays? I am probably only 40% done with my shopping. I was also thinking about making ornaments again this year too. Oh my...there is so much to get done!

I've been so busy lately. Yesterday was my birthday and I had a wonderful night! I will tell you all about it in another post later on. Here is a good band I've been listening to lately. They are called Savior Adore and you can here more of their music here.

Anyone ready for Thanksgiving?! I know I am!

warm light

What a busy week/weekend. There has been no time for rest lately. Chris and I took these pictures Saturday. They kind of remind me of the pictures you see in the UO catalogs? What do you ladies/gents think?

Well, I hope you all have a wonderful week and I hope I'll reunite with rest soon!

P.S. 2 more weeks til I'm a quarter of a century years old. The only thing I'm excited about is presents and sweet treats.


[also if you must know I'm wearing a thrifted chambray button up, AA tee shirt stolen from the boyfriend, F21 jeans, We Who See wedge booties]

My Forbidden Love

I haven't really been able to think right today, but that is not stopping me from thinking how wonderful this editorial is. The tights, the lace, the bows, the choice of fabric, even the lighting and location are perfect. Plus, Devon Aoki is one of my favs.

In honor of Halloween, I thought I would post something eerie to get us into the holiday spirit. Candice Tripp's inky and eerie paintings are a perfect start. Her work was recently featured in the latest issue of HiFructose.

all caught up

Now that I'm all caught up with Acne Paper #8, issue #9 is officially out. All I have to do is just wait 6 months for it to magically arrive in my area. Oh boy. My online search begins...

acne paper #8/recap

I'm sad to see the weekend go. I had such a lovely weekend consisting of the following:

-Chris making me breakfast in bed [french toast & bacon mmm]
-I finally had the chance to get my dark lipsticks for the fall months. I picked "Media" [a dark berry] & "Diva" [a dark burgundy] from MAC.
-I got my hair done and changed my streaks to a dark dark brown with a little hint of violet. I like it and Chris loves it. My hair is so ready for fall.
-I found my polka dotted tights at Nordstrom!!! FINALLY.

I think that about raps it up my weekend goodness! Now, yesterday, I was browsing the magazines at B&N and actually came across a something good! It was the Acne Paper #8 Summer issue. Why I had not seen this there earlier is way beyond me. It was probably hidden on some top secret shelf where all the good magazines probably are or maybe the state of Virginia gets good magazines in super late. Who knows. I had seen almost the whole mag. online through forms, but seeing it in person is way better. I loved the Sarah Moon and Tim Walker editorials the most!!! I'm thinking about going back today and buying it to add to my ever growing magazine collection.

I seriously can't wait for Jimmy Choo for H&M!!!


Anyone else excited?!

I hope everyone has a great weekend! I'm getting my hair done tomorrow so I'm super excited about that. I think I'm going to be changing the red streaks in my hair to a brown that is darker than my natural shade of brown. Or maybe I will do black. Who knows.

take me away!

After our scary adventure on the Haunted Hayride the bf decided he wanted to take pictures. Kind of random, I know...but, here is what came out of it! I actually made the little birdie for Chris for our first Valentines Day together.

P.S. I love my wool beret!

dark berry

Everyday I've been wanting a dark berry lipstick for fall more and more. I'm not sure if I want a dark cherry or a black berry-ish color, but I was thinking about getting "Cyber" or maybe "Diva" from MAC this week and trying that out.

Here's more dark berry inspiration here, here, and here!

thrifting treasures

So finally I stopped being a slacker and decided to attempt taking pictures of my new treasures! I say "attempt" because I was using my bfs massive pro camera that I have no clue how to operate. So, I apologize for the badly taken pictures you are about to see haha!

Here is a crushed velvet gem that I found on Sunday. I'm going to turn it into a long sleeve crop top. I'm really excited to start working on this! I love the dark purple crushed velvet with the studs. Plus, that studding on the neckline...gotta love it. I'll post pictures up when I finish it!


Here is my Thursday night recap.

It all started with really yummy terriyaki chicken that the bf made.

Followed by pumpkin carving!

Yay for Halloween! Is anyone dressing up or doing anything special?

I NEED some black sheer polka dotted tights. NEED! I have looked all around this damned town and can't find them anywhere. Does anyone know where I can find some online or in town??? I need an angel!

* pictures are from here

Now that I have what's important out of the way, I can tell you about my plans tonight! Well, the hunny is cooking me chicken terriyaki and we are going to carve our pumpkin tonight! For some reason I'm way more excited because I bought a white pumpkin this year. Silly, I know. But, it is what it is! Maybe I'll post some pictures of it later [along with the thrifting treasures I'm supposed to show you all!!!!] if I don't go into slacker mode afterwards.
