Hiatus



I'm going to take a bit of a hiatus due to the super hectic week that is about to happen. Things have been a bit slow on the blog front for the past few weeks because of my summer course that I am taking. It's in a subject that is super stressful and super difficult for me but it is a general education class so there is no chance of avoiding it. This week is both comic-con (!!!) and finals week ( :/ ). I have to do three finals for this class in a hotel room which REALLY stresses me out. I can't think about fun stuff when I have all of this not fun stuff to think about. I plan on taking a ton of photos though especially because I have my beautiful new camera! So, anyway this has been an update and explanation for why I will be absent for the next week or so. 

P.S. Packing and studying isn't the best combo in the world.

Hallows and Horcruxes

I thought that since tonight is the premiere of the final Harry Potter movie I would to like to say a few *cough*extremely lame/nerdy*cough* things about a series of books that meant so much to me.

The first four HP books came out when I was very young. So young that it was my mother who read them to me before bed (I remember she cried a bit when Cedric died). I loved that time we spent together every night and it was her who planted a love of reading in me. I read the fifth, sixth, and seventh books on my own well, because at that point I was too old to be read to. These books were amazing and to a 12 year old girl reading quietly on her bed they really did feel like magic. These books started out as a silly children's story of spells and broomsticks and evolved into a harrowing tale of good vs evil and of love and how really important it is in a world where even our friends can fall.
I am not going to the midnight premiere tonight (I'm not that much of a fan of midnight premieres). But I am going Sunday with my mom when the crowds have died down a bit. Still REALLY excited. Don't tell anyone, but I actually re-read the last book in preparation for the film.



P.S. Did I tell you that I got to see all of the Horcruxes in person? I took more pictures of the diadem and locket and stuff but all I could find on my computer was this slightly blurry photo of Tom Riddle's diary still cool right?

Music Monday No.009

Today's song is one that has been on repeat all week ....
"Modern Love" by Matt Nathanson
This is off of his new album also named Modern Love. To. Die. For.
This man is magical. I have seen him live twice and he is so talented and charming. Every time he would play his song "Princess" he would go off and start playing Rick Springfield's "Jesse's Girl". Swoon.

I plan on doing a full album review later this week so kept your eyes peeled!

Red Head?


This morning as I was washing my face I couldn't help but notice the amount of red in my hair. This was partially due to the lighting but my hair does naturally have quite a bit of a red undertone to it. I happen to really love red undertones. I don't think that I have mentioned this on here before but I am really perceptive when it comes to color and I am also SUPER sensitive to color. For a long time I wouldn't use black Sharpies because of the amount of blue undertones I see in it. Color is a big part in my art and in my life as well.

Love to the Max.

I don't know why but recently I have really been loving the look of maxi skirts. Not that long ago I would cringe at the thought of a maxi skirt; immediately thinking of the maxi skirts that were flaunted in the 90s but maxi skirts like the one in this video kind of make me swoon. Maybe if I come across a cute maxi for cheap I'll pick it up.  Who knows?

Two posts, one day. Stumbled upon this picture and thought it was cute and appropriate for today!

Hope your day is going well!

Music Monday No.008

Happy 4th of July! So, I wanted to go super American for this music monday but I came up a bit short and this was the first song I thought of. I think it will do.

"American Girl"by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers



Enjoy!

Sunday Inspiration.


This week I randomly stumbled upon the work of David Ellis.  These sculptures that he does with records are pretty amazing. I love vinyl and have a small collection myself. I also love how when the spines of the albums are placed together they look like a abstract expressionist painting or something. Simply Beautiful.

*Don't forget to check out more of his amazing work HERE*

EEEK! A Geek!

Via Flowtown

LOVE this chart. The design geek made me giggle, in art school some of my classmates would discuss whether helvetica is really good or just lazy. Those design kids love their fonts.


P.S. Sorry for the spotty blogging this week!
