Flashing Lights

I got a new favorite video, Colin Munroe- I Want My Flashing Lights, a remake to my favorite song off Kanye West latest album Graduation. It's soo good. I had to share this with my blog family...

Artistic Movement

So I had the opportunity to go to this really odd art exhibit at my school yesterday. It was called Deep Pop and it was based on a variety of artists who create fine art inspired by the world of pop imagery. The stuff was a bit weird but really interesting. Below are some of the most interesting pieces I saw:

Another Addition to the Closet

So yesterday, myself and my friend went on yet another shopping excursion. We're trying to plan a black and red party, so I went on a quest for a cute mini black dress and instead of finding the perfect dress i found the perfect shoes (yea it's kinda weird to get shoes and not a dress but hey these shoes are super cute)! So I want togive a big shout of to Forever21 in SoHo for selling these wonderful shoes for just $26.90.

Words of Wisdom

So I'm back at school, and classes start tomorrow ::teardrop:: ...I will still try to make post often, but school is super time consuming. The joys of college..

Anyway, in my dorm,the RA's usually put something nice on your door when it's time to move back in. Like a poster of your name in some artistic way with a picture or a quote. So when I came back for this new semester I had a really nice quote on my door and it has inspired me.

If you cant see it, it's a quote by Louisa May Alcott (the author of Little Women). It says:

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

This quote is like the story of my life. I have so many aspirations and goals and sometimes it seems like my vision may get a bit cloudy, or the goals are miles away. But if I continue to believe, I can follow what I hope to accomplish and get there some day.

Art and Life

So I just got this really random email to check out this online exhibit. This was the description I was given:

A strange population has invaded the city. Most of them spend their day watching what's happening in the streets. Everyone seems frozen in a posture. Most often standing, sheltered behind large plate glass windows. Some lower their eyes, others seem to be watching you stubbornly. Sometimes they smile. They remain however discreet, staying behind the sidewalk. Although they were unknown, their silhouettes become familiar over the meetings. We can see a wide variety of profiles. However, they are all beautiful... Who are these thousands of people that we crossed in the street without ever truly meet them? How the appearances build our judgments? What self-image we feel in watching others? How fashion dresses our gaze? The "beautiful attitude" to fill the emptiness of our relationships? It's also an experimental work on light and color.

After reading this I came to the conclusion that they were talkin about mannequins. I dunno, I got a bit confused. Anyway I went to the site and found some really interesting pictures. Here are some of my favorites.

These are from the Body Buildings Collection

These are from the Heads In Trees Collection

These are from the Sexy Collection

And these are from the Strange Collection

You can visit the exhibition online at Paris People

Bag Lady

My bag came today, YAY!! The Papaya icon satchel.

I gotta say this was a great purchase from the Victoria's Secret Pink Collection. It's currently on sale from $34.50 to just $16.99. The inside is super cute, like a separate drawstring bag. I can't wait to use it.

New Buy!!

K so I finally bought some colored tights today!!

Sage, Mangenta, Dark Teal, and Sunflower! Im super excited for the Spring so i can wear them with dresses, skirts, & shorts.

View From the 31st Floor

So today I went to my cousin's apartment, smack in the middle of Manhattan (around 59th st Columbus Circle). Anyway every time i go there, it makes we want to live in a high rise near all the hustle and bustle of the city. One day when i can afford the $10,000+ a month rent I know it will happen!! Here are some shots I took from the apartment (on the 31st floor). [Click to see bigger; the shots are amazingly clear]

Project Re-decorate

I really been thinking about redecorating my room. Although I'm away at school most of the year, I'd like for my room at home to have a welcome back feeling. Currently the walls are a Hawthorne yellow. Which is a soft shade of yellow.

I read somewhere that Yellow is stimulating, sunny and cheerful. It is associated with intellect, power and creative energy. Pale yellow make small rooms seem larger. Yet with the yellow surrounding me i feel so bland. I want to put up interesting things on the walls and make it feel more like home.

Maybe some cute music art on one wall (Urban Outfitters)

And some offbeat art on the other wall (Urban Outfitters)

Some wall graphics like these blossom wall stickers (courtesy of Sticky Up)

Maybe some cool looking holder for my jewelry (Urban Outfitters)

And lastly throw pillows that symbolize my home NYC (Urban Outfitters)

With so many options, I really need to get started on Project Re-decorate...

New Year Fresh Start

SO i just seen this....

::gasp:: Amy [Winehouse] has bleached her hair!!! I'm hoping this new blonde do means shes trying to make a change. With Blake still sitting up in his jail cell, she needs to do something productive. I LOVE her and I hope this change is for the better.
