Ahhh so sorry I’ve been away for this long. I’m working on an African fashion show and should have pics up soon!! Meanwhile, enjoy these =)



Sorry for the lack of posts, I’ve been swamped with meetings and exams. Anyway, this song puts me in power mode and helps make studying less painful. Enjoy!


Fashion Survey

The snow keeps me in doors. I found this survey on the teen vogue forums. I love completing them and haven’t done one since high school, so I decided to give this one a try:

A really good Dragonette remix

If you haven’t heard about them yet, they’re a Canadian electro-pop group that’s been around since ’05.This song is form their 2007 album Galore.  If you like La Roux, you’ll probably like Dragonette.


Color me pink

I got this NARS lip lacquer in Hot Wired (pinkish-purplish color) from Sephora for $24. Luckily the color lasts long-I haven’t had to reapply since I went to class this morning. It’s not as glossy as I’m used to, but my lips are protected and that’s what matters most.


I got the jacket!

I didn’t mean to have the collar popped, but you get the idea. My arms have destroyed the lining in the coat-everytime I bend, a new rip forms- but I guess that’s my way of breaking it in. Luckily this week has been in the 40s, so I got away with not wearing one of my heavy coats.
