Eat Cake!

I'm 17 now! Yesterday was my birthday and since unfortunately everyone started school yesterday I treated myself to an 80 minute massage which I would highly recommend everyone doing at some point. They are amazing.
I will admit I also gave up veganism for an hour because I was dyingggg for a piece of chocolate cake which also inspired this polyvore

Bow Dress-

Also, if anyone still hasn't gone school shopping I would say hit Target. I was able to throw a couple adorable shirts and a skirt in the cart between pencils notebooks etc

I did it

I was closing my eyes the whole time but I cut 8 inches off my hair!! It was a little too new at first if you know what I mean but I'm pretty happy with the finished product. I can still put it up which will be good for sports. Next hair cut I might even do more of a bob with bangs but we'll see. I have to get used to this first: :]Here are the promised pics



Also, my plan for the school year

I will begin posting on Sundays and Wednesdays, probably taking Saturday off and commenting on your amazing blogs the rest of the week!

We're Jamming

Sorry I've been a little MIA it's been a crazy week. I just got my books for school so I've been working on those, babysitting a little, and trying to get in as much time with friends from my old school before I go back! I appreciate all of your comments and I will return them as soon as possible!

When I'm too busy to go for a walk I rely on music as my escape from the stresses and drama of the school year - and even summer for that matter.

These are outfits inspired by my 3 favorite artists right now

1. Bob Marley
Favorite Song- basically allll of them but if I had to chose it would be Jammin or Three Little Birds

Bob Marley is so relaxing that I stuck with simple looks and Jamaica colors

White T Shirt
Yellow Skirt -
Green Sandals:
Green Bag -
Strapless white dress-

2. Frank Sinatra
I've just recently come to love his music
Favorite - Come Fly with Me

I was my interpretation of a tux for a women without doing a pantsuit.

Black Hat:
White Hat:

3. Tie between Radiohead and Jason Mraz
Radiohead Favorites - Lucky and How to Disappear Completely
Jason Mraz Favorite - I'm Yours

Radiohead is a little edgier than my other choices and the accessories are based after their song "Karma Police"

Plain Black Tshirt with light wash skinny jeans
Handcuff Bracelet:
Sunglasses: Ray Bans

Jason's look is pretty laid back so I tried to stick with that but dressed it up with the shoes. And instead of telling you to sling a guitar on your back as an accessory I went the necklace route

White T with darker jeans and a men's shirt and either black flats or heels
Guitar Necklace:

Grin and Bear it

This morning I made some phone calls for the fashion magazine just getting back in the swing of things before school starts. I ended up having to go downtown to get some contracts signed and oh so practical me wore 3 inch espadrilles on the 7ish minute walk. Well by the time I got to the boutique I had managed to rip off the skin on enough places on my feet to make me cringe every time I took a step(sorry to be a little gross) . However, it countered by the fact that I sold my first ad for the Fall 2008 edition of Haute (the magazine) and 2 cars stopped me at different points on my walk to compliment me on how much they liked my outfit. It was really sweet and cheered me up a lot.

Also, I have a hair appointment coming up a week from today and seriously thinking of cutting it short. Maybe a little above the shoulders and side bangs. But I'm nervous because I've had long hair my whole life with the exception of one cut in 3rd grade that I think I've tried to burn the pictures of that year of my life-it was not pretty. I'm hoping that shorter hair will make me look a little older and sophisticated but as always I make up pros and cons list in my head and it always takes me a day or so to convince myself of the right choice.

Do you think shorter hair makes people look older and sophisticated?

Here's the outfit of the day and a heel protection kit so you won't have to put band aids all over your feet :/

Foot Petals "Stiletto Survival Kit"


Outfit Details:

Dress- Nordstroms
Headband- Claire's
Shoes- Famous Footwear
Bag- Bahamas

Eco- Fashion

So, my news of the day - I've decided to try out veganism. I've been a vegetarian for a little over 5 years now and just decided to take it to the next level. I really didn't have specific reasons for becoming first a vegetarian and now a vegan but it's worked out for me so far.

Here are a couple of my favorite animal friendly fashion finds!

Vegan Queen, featured in Vogue

Urban Renewal

^This is a recycled line sold at

^These are made from recycled paper from ladies in refugee camps in Northern Uganda

Prairie Underground, sold at

Linda Loudermilk, sold at

And don't forget Suede's dress from the eco friendly project runway episode will be sold at sometime in the future.

Hey! I hope you had an amazing weekend. I know I did. I went to a grad party for my friend Andrew's sister. He's been in Paris all summer so it was fun to hear all of his stories and he likes to shop just as much if not more than I do so he showed off all of his fun finds. His sister spent the summer in Morocco too and came back with some amazing pictures. She's a really talented photographer.

I can't wait to travel. My dad's promised me if I get on honor roll all of my senior year my gift at graduation will be travelling abroad over the summer. Places high on my list:

England, France, Spain, Italy, Thailand, Greece, Turkey, China, Japan, Germany, New Zealand, Norway, etc etc
If you've travelled at all, did any of these stand out to you?
