Apart from the obvious things that are exciting about a semester abroad, meeting new people, seeing new things, going to new places, buying new clothes (big +) one of the main things i'm excited about is living in my own place and being able to decorate how i want. This is what i plan to do with my space!

Drew has been knocking them out of the park lately, man, 35 looks good on her. I'm loving her hair and that amazing lipstick in the first shot. I can only hope i'll be looking this great when i'm her age!
a couple of things which are currently making me smile
my new boots which i plan to style like this:
hair streaks i bought for $2
purple hairspry so i can dip dye the ends of my hair
new gold studs..not sure what i'll stud just yet.

finding out i was accepted as a volunteer for MSFW 2010 out of 600 applicants they picked around 80
So i went to a Wild West themed cocktail night last week, as an indian. I made my dress out of some taupe material and some metallic and fringed trim. So the first time i sewed it may have been skin tight around my butt and thighs, had to add some material to the sides so i could walk and dance in it, oops! Added a diva plaited suede hair wrap with peacock feather detail and some fringing tied round my wrists and i was set. There were a couple other indians there and the indian chief - my friend darby - named me blazing fire and gave me an axe to cause some trouble with as well as a feather as a 'rite of passage' haha. Such a fun night! am planning to make a neutral coloured maxi skirt with the excess material..
my original inspiration
the fact that the dress is now in need of repair is just more of a sign of how much fun i had haha
