craving: color


now that spring has officially arrived (for the most part there is no more snow in the forecast, not including yesterday!) i am craving color. all winter i am in mourning, wearing almost all black day in and day out. as soon as spring comes along you can be sure that i will be seen in color almost everyday nonstop celebrating my favorite seasons!



(summer and spring obviously)



i really want a dress like this!



"i cannot pretend to feel impartial about colors. i rejoice with the brilliant one's and am genuinely sorry for the poor browns."

prohibition and the speakeasy


today i went to nymag to read the fashion section but instead read an interesting article on prohibition and speakeasys and how these effected nightlife today. i found it to be really interesting because i never really thought about how night life was shaped in ny. it's interesting to think that prohibition and speakeasys were the reasons that:

1. you go to bars and flirt
2. you go out to be entertained
3. but you also party at home
4. you order brand name liquor
5. the best bars are kept secret

just a few fun facts for today!

Final Weeks



It is becoming very apparent that school is winding down...all the work I have been avoiding all semester is now catching up with me. I just looked at my calender for the first time and I just about fell off the chair from all the things I have going on.



The first thing i need to finish is my art project. I just want to be over and done with it so I can move onto the next. I'm doing a Marie Antoinette inspired series and have been collecting images from a bunch of different places.


I recently discovered bing and am obsessed with it now for image searches! There were so many different things that inspired me that would have been like on page 50 of a google image search!

Paris




Yesterday Grace and I were talking about Paris and how much we missed it! SO in honor of my TSM's birthday this post is for her! (TSM: Telephone Soulmate)




If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a movable feast.
Ernest Hemmingway




Paris is known as the ‘City of Lights’… a city of culture… of fine dining and magnificent architecture. Paris is a city for lovers: lovers of art, lovers of history, lovers of food, lovers of… love.



Happy Birthday Grace!! LOVE YOU

Happy Easter


Happy Easter everyone! This will be my 3rd Easter at school...it's a hard holiday to miss because of all the family traditions and memories that come with the holiday. we always have an egg hunt (where all being competitive and having a survival of the fittest mentality are key to winning) and a fun lunch/dinner with the whole family. a throwback image from when i was 5 or 6 (around that age) is featured above! as everyone can see it's a free for all!

today, the priest switched it up and included an Easter play put on by the sunday school kids at Grace Church. let me tell you...it was so cute! the angels and the eggs were my fav (younger kids are so much fun!).

well anyways, i hope everyone has a Happy Easter whether it be at home or school!
