Unfortunately I can't recall where I found these pictures, as I just rediscovered them saved in a pictures folder on my computer. I love these photos though! It's very much whimsical and full of fantasy, but you can also feel a sort of elemental vibe. Like water, air, earth, light, and even dark. What do they make you think of? (:
I've always been meaning to watch the show because of the endless talk amongst friends on the drama and the imbecable fashion, but never got around to it. Plus I was not exactly motivated since I got all my cravings for sex and drug filled teen dramas when I was in my tween Degrassi phase. But due to my uneventful weekend I finally found a website with the episodes and sat down to watch and right away I was addicted! I'm only on episode 8...but I have a feeling I'll get through the season before the weekend is over. Soo...when's season 2 airing? :P
Whenever I get together with Elana (brown dress) and Shouka (neon shirt), we never run out of things to say and I absolutely love that...but at the same time it just makes parting so much more difficult! We spent yesterday watching black and white Audrey Hepburn films, taking pictures, and chatting at starbucks, which was so much fun. I love how we can get together and talk about anything and everything, including all our fashion obsessions. And we enjoy the guilty pleasures of taking photos of ourselves and chatting at coffee places. Here's a few photographs :o)
tehe, I was bonding with Elana's doggie :D
Oh, and I apologize for the lack of in-depth posts lately. Honestly, I feel like I'm sort of coasting through life at the moment. Nothing has been impressing me, let alone inspiring me. I really need to get out of this boring area lol
By the way, anyone see the new Project Runway last night? What did you think? :D

I've come to realize that for some reason I'm always half asleep and desperately bored and lazy during the day, only to be wide awake and racing with inspiration when I attempt to sleep at night. As I lay tossing and turning trying to slow the thoughts in my brain, inspiration thrusted me out of my bed to my lap top where I've been researching this random inspiration.
First, I put together of some items that I feel that I must obtain. Those items being plaid shirts (think D&G status), black and red pencil skirts, a black mini dress to wear under a shirt, over sized black and white t-shirts or tank tops that I can spice up with fabulous accessories or shoes, leopard heels, white lace flats, a big white bow to wear in hair, button-up shirts, neon sneakers, black ankle boots, floral print dress, and a cropped leather jacket. I know, crazy much?
Second, I've found the inspiration to design again! After I sucked the life force from my "Alice in Wonderland" phase, I couldn't even stand to look at my sketchbook. So I buried it away in a drawer until time would reunite us once more, and now it has! There isn't exactly a "theme", persay, but it is definitely full of my lustful contradictions! Like...clothes for a girl who wants to be dominated, but she isn't going down without a fight. Like she won't just "submiss" to anyone, you have to overcome her. A little hard to explain, sorry, but it makes perfect sense to me.
And plus, it is late night delirium, but I couldn't wait until morning in fear of forgetting. I'm sure you understand.
And what do you know, this video just about summarizes it up (and it's not techno! :P)
Certainly an interesting weekend! I know the pictures above are random, but I think they capture the beauty and electricity of the summer, along with my new found inner peace. It may be temporary as I am quite relaxed after yesterday, but I intend to ride out this lovely feeling of serenity for as long as it lasts! :o)
Also for the past few days I've been reading up on Buddhism. I practice no structured religion, but rather take different beliefs from all different kinds to form my own opinions. I'm not trying to push any sort of belief on anyone, but if you are feeling at all stressed out or run down as I was, I do suggest skimming an article on meditation or something, it truly does wonders!
Oh, and just in case anyone was curious, I have officially straightened out my feelings for a certain someone. :P After last night I realized that I really couldn't be anything more then just playful friends. Sure, we have fun, but he isn't exactly the type of man I could take seriously and I'm really glad to keep it the way it is. And truly, it is SUCH a relief to have that figured out, I don't think anyone likes feeling so vulnerable and confused, especially with something as fragile as your heart.
So I submitted to the new polyvore craze and began fooling around on there, getting myself familiar with the pieces and attempting to put things together. Let me tell you, not only is there a massive selection on all sorts of things, but it is addicting! These are the two rave outfits I've come up with (don't laugh! Though it doesn't look like it, I'm slowly getting better). Despite the fact that they are pretty different from each other, I would totally wear them. The first was inspired by my rave name, Bunny, and the other was inspired by Ed Hardy (hint: the hat :P).
"If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?" Alice in Wonderland
For some reason I have an unusual attraction to vintage tea sets, Alice in Wonderland, and generally anything pink, tiny, or in a bow-shape. I am deeply passionate about fantasies and find everyone's to be quite fascinating, my own to be my most favorite, of course. I also love baking an obscene amount of cupcakes, blogging, techno music, and having intellectual debates.
