What would Audrey do?

Recreate one of Holly Golightly's LBD with one black dress + ostrich feathers slip + black pumps

  1. The best part of the day for me: My dog is my alarm clock. She hops on my bed and starts licking my face every morning around 6 AM which makes feel so happy and alive.

  2. I know rain may be depressing to some people but I find it delightful. It’s an occasion to wear a cute trench coat, rain boots, vintage umbrella and go to a cafe, or sit nearby a window and find myself tucked in the pages of my favorite books.

  3. I’m inevitably clumsy; I trip over things, and bump into to people.

  4. I have to sleep with a light on.

  5. I going to admit that I am germaphobe; I can't touch door knobs or handles without a cloth in my hand, I wash my hands after touching anything or shaking hands, never eat without washing hands, and always carry a hand sanitizer.
  6. I have about 25 birthmarks. Tiny and light brown under my eyebrow bone and one besides. I even have one birthmark that looks like an anchor on my thigh. Knees, arms, legs...

Jazz Age

I am tempted just sitting here contemplating at this vintage sheer beaded dress at bleubird vintage. Actually I did not remember that bidding ends today if it wasn't for my thrusty eBay Alerts. Only 20 minutes left...."See it, Like it, Buy it" Can't make up my mind...

Officially my one year anniversary this month of April. This past year of blogging was the best that I could hope for. Bloggers are fashion-forward, innovative, and friendly; I enjoy reading all of my feeds. Most amazingly readers and bloggers can interact with editors, stylists, boutique owners, designers were as before you couldn't. I recall the first time I stumbled into my first blog Fashionologie (Initially I had no knowledge what a "blog" really was I knew i liked it. On Fashionologie's blog links I came upon the Sartoliarist. Then discovered craft, design & Fashion blogs that expanded my horizons in a way that I became more aware of new of indie magazines and websites, learned that inspirations can come in different shapes and sizes. My deep admiration from bloggers inspired me to start me own; a place to write about the things I loved, were I could meet people with the same common interests as me, an archive of my ideas and thoughts. I could play editor in the morning at my own time and pace. Soon I had an audience, links and comments that I would read every word of. It is so overwhelming when certain blogger on my blogroll goes on live television or a well-known magazine (Design Sponge on the TODAY SHOW, Bakarella on Martha Stewart, Sartorialist on Vogue & For staying ahead of trends, from bringing new words to our vocabulary (Ever heard of the words Fashionologie and Sartorialist until the blog?). YAY to the wondeful works of bloggers let's celebrate them!

Today's Inspiration

Click to see full views here

Hello. I wanted to share the scans I found today from some old (2 years old?) Urban Outfitters catalogs for your inspiration needs. In my opinion Urban Outfitter lacks the creativity it once had in their catalogs. Taking about inspiration; have you seen the new monthly Inspiration E-zine by design for manking blogger, No?? Head over there right now, it's full of eye candy.

I also wanted to thank all the bloggers who had patience with me to still keep me in their blogroll and/or for their comments, to all the bloggers who inspire, who makes us dream, imagine, reflect, thank, wish. Thank you!

meet me

"Meet you to the finish line"
Some photos of Snow playing with Sushi while dog sitting some days ago. She is a four month old shih tzu pup. I couldn't get a photo of them together, sushi is just too quick :)

When I saw this photograph yet again it inspired me to make the time to prepare a healthy breakfast with the nicest teacup and plate I own because honestly I never make the time to. Everyday I drink coffee from a Styrofoam cup.
Some of my marked favorites on flickr, come to inspire me when most needed. Today is for creating the most sight appealing meal you ever eaten, to take out all of your tiny treasures or collections out from storage, photographing them. Feeling Pretty

Beautiful photography from Paper Pony

"Pick the day. Enjoy it - to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as they come... The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present

Hello my fellow friends, yes been away for so long and I have miss you terribly. A little note for all my new friends, I wish you all one happy new 2008. Possibly through writing this blog it has enable me to have meet the most kind and interesting people.

Earlier today I saw of this day only of darkness, my to-do list was full of chores to accomplish before the coming of new years but as I read this quote online it helped me noticed it was the brightness it has been. Not to think of the future but appreciate the present day. No one but a lovely lady like Audrey Hepburn is the most indicated to quote today. I hope all of this makes sense, a degree in creative writing would be really handy here.

"Pick the day. Enjoy it - to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as they come... The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present - and I don't want to spoil any
of it by fretting about the future"
-Audrey Hepburn

And not because of the new year approaching is this quote the best time to say it, I will enjoy this day and not worry some much about 2008, not look beyond December 30, 2007. I will take day by day, be playful, appreciate what I have, teach my dog some tricks of course after cleaning...

A Little Orchard

A little while ago I entered a contest held at Little Orchard and I ended up wining a free set of loveliest cards around. Just today I received them but I figured that I could never write in them with the fear of ruin them with my bad handwriting. The photographs are simplistic but still vivid. I think might just frame them.
The Little Orchard is based in New Zealand specialises homemade skincare, photography and handmade purses.
Thank you Charlotte!

My sweet boy who made my mornings a lot brighter

I am very sorry I haven been updating like I used to. I'm coming out of a depression. My room mate moved out of the state and decided to tag Bambi along. Tho he'll be back in time for Christmas for awhile I am still saddened by not having him around. Looking at his pictures on flickr sort of depress me. I missed how he used to fall asleep under my chair late at night while I visited some of my favorite blogs...

colors I don't usually see used together; its too much but I do like.
Why not take a risk?

“Remember last time I came and you had cups with little animals?”


Surely I did not have blogging up, Sorry!

Okay Do you remember as a kid drinking from those so call "surprise mugs or bowls"? You know the tiny creatures sitting quietly on the bottom of the cup or bowl until you finish? I don't but sure wish I did. I am now fascinated by these from etsy seller Purple Petunia.

Not long ago I signed up on a swap Architecture Photos ATCs, and to be honest with you its past the dateline and I still haven't sent photos because I was unable something I would be happy to photograph. Seeing this on design*sponge motivated me to look for decorative buildings around my own town; I can't say theres a large quantity of them but there definitely some out there.

Here's what I found today at our City Hall, not very ornate but I like. What I would like to photograph: pretty homes to make a scrapbook.

Saturday Afternoon

Pretty in Pink

Saturday Afternoon was spent strolling at the park. We had a chance to dress our puppies for the occasion which everybody complimented about. Yes a Bichon doesn't normally wear clothes because of their cute powderpuff appearance which requires a lot of grooming. But what do I know?I'm a bad mother of two cute puppies; I give them ice cream and I dress them up!

for the walls

Every time I head over The Home Depot or any other paint store you can always find paint chips in my handbag to later discard never to imagine that they are actually very useful (see card holder idea and artwork). Anthropologie stylist decided to use them for the walls, very ingenious as always. I love finding everyday items to incorporate in the decor!

In a place such as Alice’s Wonderland drink from a bottle with the label “DRINK ME” and you’ll shrink or choose to eat cake and objects will suddenly appear enormous.
Uncomplicated enough buy oversized items or miniatures for home!

The chandelier almost looks like a computer graphic

I'm not very good at scanning magazine pages, sorry!
