THE REASON THIS IS MY FAVORITE PART IS BECAUSE IT IS WHEN I AM SOMEHOW BEING THE MOST EXPRESSIVE ME POSSIBLE. BUT IF YOU WANT MORE INFO ON THINGS SUCH AS "HOW I COPE IN A SCHOOL ENVIRONMENT" STAY TUNED FOR VIDEOS SUCH AS:
-What I put in my School Backpack!
-How I try to find new ways to organize myself so I have a better routine.
-The techniques I use to focus myself.
*FIND a chance to FOLLOW ME somehow!*
THE REASON I TEND NOT TO "JUST BLOG" IS BECAUSE I WANT EVERYTHING IN MY LIFE TO LOOK REALLY BEAUTIFUL AND COOL. I TEND TO LIKE TO JUST SHARE MY FEELINGS WITH A SELECT FEW... BUT I FIND THAT HAS MADE ME RATHER INTROVERTED IN PUBLIC. I SEE WHAT I CAN DO WITH MY ARTISTIC ABILITIES, BUT I HAVE YET TO TRULY LEARN WHAT I CAN DO WITH MY PERSONALITY.
I'M REALLY THANKFUL TO THOSE PEOPLE WHO TRULY WANT TO HELP ME OUT. IT IS SO EMPOWERING TO KNOW WE LIVE IN A SOCIETY THAT DOES CARE ABOUT US. I STILL DO NOT UNDERSTAND MY CALLING IN LIFE, BUT I WILL FIND IT, AND INSTEAD OF WORRYING ABOUT ME, I WOULD LOVE FOR EVERYONE TO WORRY ABOUT THEMSELVES. I ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO JUST WAIT AND SEE WHAT THE WORLD HAS ALREADY STARTED. AND CHOOSE TO LIVE A LIFE THEY ARE PROUD OF. THESE ARE SUCH SIMPLE IDEAS, BUT NONE OF US TRULY UNDERSTAND IT FROM TIME TO TIME. I FEEL SO LOST SOMETIMES IN DIFFERENTIATING WHAT I WANT FROM WHAT OTHER PEOPLE WANT, AND I GUESS THAT'S WHAT A TEAM IS ALL ABOUT RIGHT? WE ARE BEING TRAINED IN A WAY THAT PROVES HOW WE ACT IS NOT FAKE BECAUSE ITS NOT A FACT.
WE GET A LITTLE BIT FROM EACH ONE OF US. WE LEARN A LITTLE BIT FROM EVERYONE. WE START AN EMPIRE OF OUR OWN, NOT TO DOMINATE BUT TO LIVE A LIFE THAT HAS SOME SORT OF MEANING. WHAT YOU BELIEVE TO BE TRUE IS YOUR CHOICE. BUT BE CERTAIN THAT IT IS THE CHOICE YOU WANT TO MAKE.
AND BY THE WAY, TOTALLY NOT BASED ON ANY SCIENCE OR RESEARCH, BUT I WONDER WHAT THE HELL PLAGIARISM EVEN MEANS. THAT WORD IS TOTALLY TAUGHT WRONG I FEEL. I MEAN IF PLAGIARISM, IS SOME SORT OF "RULE THAT WE CAN'T COPY EACH OTHER" AND IT IS "INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY" SO PEOPLE CAN SUE EACH OTHER--IT JUST CREATES A LOT OF HATE IN MY OPINION. WHY CAN'T WE JUST TEACH PEOPLE TO GIVE A LITTLE BIT OF CREDIT TO ONE AN OTHER AND WORK TOGETHER.
THANK YOU TEACHERS WHO HAVE DONE THEIR BEST TO STAY TRUE TO THEIR CALLING OF WANTING TO HELP KIDS. EVEN THOUGH THERE IS A LOT THAT I DON'T BELIEVE IN WHEN IT COMES TO THE EDUCATION SYSTEM, AT THE END OF THE DAY, THE INDIVIDUALS WE ENCOUNTER MEAN SOMETHING SPECIAL.
There are so many more people lately that I have met around me that I want to thank but I don't know how to, express that gratitude just yet. But you are in my heart and mind! & I tend not to forget, I just do not know how to truly access these memories yet.
LET US ALL LEARN TO EXPRESS OURSELVES THE RIGHT WAY.

earrings i just love
"hangman we played,
blind man's bluff 'til they stopped the game.
youth without youth,
born without time"
everyone has their own sort of taste when it comes to jewelry.
personally i love things that are subtle but unique!
i'm not the boldest of dressers, i wish i could be and i envy those girls who can rock awesome styles, but since i know that's not me, i try to show my personality through my jewelry.
when i was younger i collected tiffany jewelry because what young girl doesn't love tiffany's?
and of course i still love the little robin egg blue box,
but now i decided i want my jewelry to be less commercial and much more personal.
these are just a few examples of what would really catch my eye
when it comes to earrings. which ever since i got my ears pierced, have been
my favorite piece of jewelry!
i love it when people notice my silly studs or interesting earrings.
its so subtle, yet someone saw the playful aspect (:
just makes me happy.

whats in this look
hat - ralph lauren, shoes - mia,
shirt - rvca, skirt - top shop.
a little bit of height goes a long long way.
to me, nothing screams summer like a pair of espadrille wedges!
lately, everything has been changing rapidly.
my dog sunny, whom i've lived with for 8 years of my life is going to go live with my brother from now on, all the way in berkeley, ca - which is a 6-8 hour drive from los angeles.
in addition, i'm moving out of the house i've lived in for 20 years of my life to be in downtown la's arts district. which is both exciting and frightening for me.
i'm moving because of my career,
there's nothing left for me in orange county, which is where i've been living and commuting from everyday for the past three years. there are so many opportunities in los angeles that i miss out on because despite being neighboring counties, the insane traffic makes its worlds away at times.
so fingers cross that this is a smart move, and i won't be too home sick.
this outfit is very orange county.
its inspired by my hometown and background in the sunny county full of beautiful beaches.
this is something i would wear when i'm in laguna or newport walking amongst the art galleries or enjoying an ice cream on the sand.
this is a outfit that i would wear with all my childhood and adolescent friends whom spent hours upon hours with me growing up, having fun, and learning who we are together.
this outfit goes out to nostolgia,
this outfit is a tribute to the past, and a salut to the future.

punching in a dream
song by the naked and famous
"bright lights turn me clean, this is worse then it seems"
this is a really casual outfit, i used to be a "true religions" only type of gal, but i've outgrown that gaudy look and so most of my jeans now are just levis or jeggings.
more recently, i decided i wanted to not be so boring in dressing
so i'm starting to buy pants/jeans that are printed or colored!
these pants are the best buy i've made all year long.
in this post:
leopard print jeans from saks fifth avenue
nude cut out heels from s h o e s in taiwan
hamsa muscle tee from attic2zoo

i've been dying to revamp my personal style
& these are some pieces i would add to my closet if i could.
what are you wanting this month?
hey, it's gym time!
the song i chose for this post's title is relevant because at the gym,
i always spend at least 30 minutes on the treadmill.
i read a study once saying walking backwards is a good way to
relax your calve muscle,
therefore reducing the size of it,
all while creating a nice tone muscle.
hear it here.
"i've been taken by a new emotion, i've been walking backwards"
nike gear are essential for me at the gym!
i used to go to the gym wearing a t-shirt and gym shorts.
but now i go in style.
my theory is, if you go looking cute,
you'll feel more motivated + confident to work your ass off.
in this post:
nike - dri fit - sports bra
nike - free runs 5.0
to be honest i'm the least gym-type girl in the world
so wish me luck!
