Giving Thanks

November 24, 2011

-MY FAMILY. Even though we fight, argue and don't always get along, I don't know what I would do without you.

-My little slice of heaven. No matter how bad I'm feeling my blog/shop/twitter is always there to cheer me up.

-My hobby. Even when It drives me crazy, I am thankful that I have the ability to create things. An without it I would probably go insane, running the streets.

-My sister. I know I already mentioned family. But In particular, She is my mental/slightly ebonically talented glue holding me together.  

-My job. No matter how much everything frustrates me, or how long I have to be there...I am still thankful for its presence in my life and the people that I work with. 

-My friends. You know who you are. Without you, I totally would have fallen apart. Thanks for keeping me together.


HST: I whip my hair back and forth

November 23, 2011

 So today is the day! My hair has finally grown long enough to wear a PONYTAIL! I was so geeked and late for work that I was only able to snap a few shots, but I am completely in love with it. If you follow me on Tumblr and Twitter, then these pics are old news, but I have to keep my blog updated, somehow.

What do you guys think of my hair??

One night at the movies

I thought I should clue you guys into the goings on of my weekend. It was very stressful and exciting. It was stressful because it was the first time I was with my dad in a while. He actually smiled. It was a very interesting night. Needless to say, It completely and utterly erased any thought in my mind that I might be a bad server.  We went out to eat, and Gianna and I went to see Breaking Dawn...It was highly awkward watching it with my younger sister.


Is it a shame, that I am exxxxcited for the pokemon Black and White movie to come out?

B.I.T.C.H. What are you listening to?

November 17, 2011

Music keeps me sane. The beat is faster than my heart. Helps me sort through my thoughts, keeps me creative. I am hardly ever caught without my headphones. *Although they change like people change socks* I listen to all genre's of music, I can even handle some country. But I love hip hop and rap. Each genre of music even has like sub genres and then they can break down even further than that! Music is like a molecule, and the gist/moral/point/explanation of each song is an atom.
 When the day is slow, when I am lacking inspiration, When I am happy, When I am sad, When the bus ride is long, or the task is daunting music is always there for me. When I  was younger I listened to music that wasn't even from this region of the world.  I was strictly J-pop.  Utada Hikaru, Anime themes, Ayumi Hamasaki. Most of what my peers were listening to I hadn't even HEARD of. This unfortunately stunted my growth of slang as well * lol*
 As I got older my tastes moved to alternative and classic rock. I rode that train HARD. I still blast it when I'm feeling nostalgic. Earning me my *unaffectionate* Oreo persona. This was around Middle school, when I decided that I didn't care what anyone thought about me anymore. So it didn't really bother me, but It just kinda stuck.
  Now I listen to a lot of rap and hip hop. From all different types of people. A lot of people in general say it cant be rap if its not by an african american, that's total bullocks by the way.  My favorites are Childish Gambino, Nicki Minaj, Lola Monroe,  Dumbfoundead, and Wax. But lyrics to Rap in general are just so FREAKING OFFENSIVE.
 I'm tired of being called a whore, bitch, cunt, and slut. That is not my name. That is NOT what my name stands for. And everyone woman is different. It is very difficult to find 2 women that are exactly the same, and the fact that rappers seem to think everyone woman can fit under a word in that disgusting list kinda pisses me of.
  It got so bad that I just stopped listening to rap all together. Then I discovered underground rap. I discovered Dumbfoundead. And my love for actual rap was restored. So I started scouring the internet for music that was legit. I came across more and more and MORE! Finally, there as an alternative to Lil Wayne, Birdman, Jay-Z and Eminem. *Even though I love Eminem and his flow, I can't condone any of his music other than mosh.*
  Music keeps me going when my days get rough. And I am all about learning new things about people So I was wondering what you guys listen to. Just in general. Not like a knitting playlist but What you guys have running through your ipods?

You can let me know here in a comment below, or on twitter.

P.S. B.I.T.C.H. in the title stands for  Beautiful Individual That Creates Haters. Givin' my girls some love.

So Disappointed...

November 16, 2011

This makes me super upset to announce. But I am an idiot. I can admit it, and admitting you have a problem is the first step right? The weekend of Samhain, I purchased a mini Diana lomography camera and film during a Victoria Secret excursion with the girls. I was so flippin' * I promised my grandmother that I would stifle my profanity, and I am not sure if she reads my blog, so unfortunately, I have to censor myself. Just in case* excited. 



I took photos that entire weekend like people took breaths. Unfortunately, this was my very first film camera. Since all of my friends are artistic in some way shape and form. I decided that I would Ask Sarah, since she was on the trip with me, if she would help me load it. So She shows me how to do it, said all I had to do was follow her instructions and I could snap away. Snap Snap Snapping away I did, I took pictures of EVERYTHING that weekend.
 Unfortunately, I did not think to make sure that the film had wrapped itself around the winding cylinder...Which meant all those cool amazing photos I took that weekend are lost forever.
-Emu pretending to eat her dead butterfly
-Photos from Matt and Guerin's Party.
-The beautiful Landscape photos
- The multiple exposures and mixed frames I were working on.
All gone in a puff of smoke. I have no one to blame but myself at the moment. And It just makes me ill all over.
 Fortunately, I got it resolved earlier yesterday morning, and Miss Diana is ready for takeoff. I keep her in my purse right next to my sony so I dont miss anything. I know I'm not going to get those pictures back, and that hurts, but as my cousin said today, Thats 30 pictures that you don't have now, but 30 pictures of space you do have. I love how optomistic she is about everything.

Just thought I would let you guys know whats going on. Speaking of other fails.
-Went Bowling with Josh. AHMAZING. But had so much fun, that I took no pictures. (epic fail)
-Took 2 days to get my cousin an application Eric kept letting me leave without it! (Garha!)
-Covered 2 shifts, and they keep calling me in for more. I'm being nice stop taking advantage of ME!
-No Thanksgiving dinner with fam this year. * It is what it is*
-Lately I have had pain in both knees, my fingers, wrists, shoulders and calfs * Arthur is trying to get me and I rebuke him in the name of youthfulness!
-Both My sister and Josh are bad elephants. Gianna even claims she has early onset alzheimers lol

FOTD: Wings

November 13, 2011

I know technically today is Sunday. And I know that I haven't done one in a while, but I did say I was getting back to my roots right? So here I am. This is my Face of the day.

 I used Maybelline: Gel Liner in Blackest Noir and any silver color. This is a 3-4 step makeup tutorial TOPS. So If you love quickies this one is for you!

1. Prime Eyes ( I used NYX primer: Skin tone) I am looking for a darker shade actually if anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear about them.

2. Apply the Silver all over lid, with a flat/fluffy brush.

3. Apply the Liner across the lower lid.

4. Draw a scalene triangle on the edges, fill in the empty spots and blend.

Makeup and enjoy!

First Look at Harjuku lovers for Target

November 7, 2011

  My bloglist is full of strong and influential women. A good portion of these blogs can be compartmentalized as Fashion/style, D.I.Y. Videogaming, and Needlecrafts. When I first started blogging it was to keep up with an important time in my life, and how I was going to deal with it. Then it changed to documenting my style and the way that it was progressing. Now it has progressed to talking about my "business" and Makeup. Now I'm trying to get back to my fashion roots. I love a good look book. I love to see what inspires another designer to create such amazing functional pieces of art.  So I decided to start today.
  I was catching up on my Gossip Girl. Which If you've been reading from the beginning you know that it is one of my favorite shows of all time. During one of the commercial breaks (gotta love Hulu)  I saw the commercial for Stefani's new line for Target. Let me just say two things about ms. Stefani. 1. ) She has never had an issue expressing herself.  2.) I would kill to own something she designed. Her ability to adapt her strain of wonky adorableness to something that the entire public can enjoy is definitely one her biggest assets.  Here is the commercial.

  Can I just say that this entire campaign is bloody brilliant??? It instantly caught my attention with the adorable fashions, the bright colors, and the 8-bit instantly spoke to my inner (not really) nerd.
You can see my favorite shots from their lookbook below, or you can click this link and see the whole one here. 

 Is it bad that I am a 20 year old woman and I totally want the I heart nerds shoes and the sunglasses bag?? I don't have any little ones, but I can tell that this winter/ fall school year boys and girls alike are going to be stylin and Profillin. You can buy these items and more at your local Target starting the 13th.

Mistress Out,
