I made this back in January, saved it, never posted it?
I went to Utah for a few days and had a lot of time to scavenge flickr for some more saucy dwellings.
I love hardwood floors. I also enjoy the simplicity of the bedside table and the bed frame. I also like white bedding and sheepkin rugs.Although the shelves above the couch makes me nervous, I really like the color palate of the carpet and furniture cool couch, cool bike, cool walls, cool picture. enough said for this. Bright open windows. I love buttery yellows and white paired together. the chandelier and the chaise lounge are classy and chic. I really need to find a proper way to display my cameras. This is something I am going to try to work on. I would live here easily. Or here. mid century classics, yum. While in Utah I also hit up the thrift stores, purchasing some 1950s National Geographic magazines and a set of children's encyclopedias from the early 60s. I was also tempted to buy my first set of dishes. They I loved them and will save them, look for more until I have a place of my own.
I was student of the month in my digital design ROP course, go me, I got a keychain, sticker, and a certificate. This is not the point of the post, only a mere explanation to make the title seem less lame. So anyway on with the show...
My friend Athena might be the only one who shares my love of French pop music. I have heard her talk about some girl named Yelle before, but today when we were working on layouts and had in a mix cd a few of Yelle's songs came on and I found myself bouncing in my chair, bobbing my head wishing I was jumping on a trampoline to this music, no lies. It was so fun and brightened my day. So we googled her name only to find out she is a super cute girl!

From French Elle. Her album cover. I admit its all a bit "French" Nu Rave, but oh well. For you all, a song off her album, but I recommend you go out and get your paws on the entire thing! http://www.yelle.fr/
Inspired by the purging Kime did in her apartment I decided it would be an excellent idea if I did the same. Boy does it feel good. First I attacked my closet which was jam packed full to the brim, literally ripping at the seams to the point that no more hangers could fit along the length of it. I took EVERYTHING out and put them on racks and edited it. I would like to say I got rid of a third of my closet because now there is tons of room, TONS. I also got rid of tons of shoes and bags and accesories as well as cleaned out drawers full of random objects. Then I got rid of a large majority of my children's books and "teen fiction" novels (I'm keeping my gossip girl series, how could I not). I had a whole 2 and a half shelves of room which I moved some camera stuff and records up onto that were before just sitting around on the floor. I had done a psuedo organizational/get rid of stuff mission in my room a few months ago but I'm a packrat and my swapmeet finds and photo equipment and photos in general pile up fast. I'm going to have to do this again in a few months because my parents want to move and I will also be moving away temporarily for school.
The final productthe growing pile of things to get rid of childhood library organized
I'm highly anticipating spring. Unlike last year where I couldn't get enough of winter, I ready to defrost (not that its even that cold in LA). Anyway I really like what Luella Bartley showed for her Spring 08 line, even though the designers are well into next Fall I still think spring deserves a bit of focus. I can't help but think of Thora Birch in Ghost World when I look at this line. Especially the last two. I love everything about the entire look. Also the entire line is Batman themed and shirts and sweaters have little Batman logos on it, gah so cute.
