I can't wait 'til I get a well-paying job so I can spend my Saturday mornings online shopping on ShopBop, Net-a-Porter and La Garconne. I hopped on last night during the middle of a study break and saw this image below. All my faves rolled into one. I needed to be sedated.

Maxi skirt for ALL OCCASIONS! Can I get a "woot woot"?
I thought so.

And to fuel my love for all things neon this spring: Marc by Marc Jacobs, Botkier, Cambridge Satchel, Rebecca Minkoff.

Heya everyone,

Here's a quick 3am post whilst I study the UMN pathways (soooo many tracts to memorize). It's a collection of instagram photos from my account- kinda like a petit update of what's going on in my life. Well, not really. It's an update of my external appearance, and near surroundings. [The truth is so superficial. Yaowza.] Hope you're all doing well! I'm planning on doing a beauty post when this next exam is over, since I have a couple things that I la la la looove for my face. That and I started cutting my nails really short recently to abate some of my scratching (bad nervous habit of mine). Cheers!

If you haven't heard the youtube song mocking hipsters [which was referenced in my title], check it out here.

Also, I'm on the prowl for funky bralettes to wear under sheer blouses, and tank tops with dropped arm holes, and I found some great ones if you're also interested: Amulette, Eberjey, Stola, Only Hearts, Top Secret, and Hanky Panky.

Long overdue photos from my parent's visit to Chicago. Can't wait 'til they come back- I know they miss me a lot! Hopefully the next visit willl bring another heat wave. ^-^

Hey everyone!

I've just started a neuroscience course this month, and it has been draining me of free time. All I do is monotonous tumblr reblogs because they require no thinking. Oh, and I sketch on Paper53, which is a gorgeous app you should all get! Also, I got an email last week from the former head of Marketing for Facebook (peed my pants), to join them on a new social network shopping website. It means I'm selling my clothes - something I've wanted to do forever, but was too chicken to jump the bullet for. If you're interested, it's basically a community full of beauty and fashion bloggers buying and selling their treasures ---> Check out Copious. I'll be writing more about it later when I'm up to speed with the next steps the PR team wants to take.

A few of my sketches on Paper53 - You can check out my #drawingaday tag on my tumblr.
Two items I'm selling on my Copious
A few knicks & knacks 
An outfit I had set out to wear one fine day, and never got around to do so. The weather reverted to chilly, and the heat wave passed the MidWest.

I have a few collabs, and some fun pieces I picked up that I hope to share with you soon.
Oh, and I am officially going to LA & Vegas this May. SO EXCITED!

Here are a couple images that I'm goo-goo-gaga over. There's just something about the pastels and designs that make me feel so calm and happy. I really think we should get some neuro-imaging of females/males viewing beautiful fashion images.

Image sourced from tumblr - if someone can link me to the original editorial so I can see the rest I'd be forever grateful.
