When I try to cut out my face, it's always in the photo and I have to crop it out. When I want a head to toe picture, the crucial head part is m.i.a. Sigh...

I took Emz's advice from this post and put a scarf on with this dress to disguise the cargo pockets, ech! I'm so happy with the result! Thanks to all of you who gave some very helpful advice! The jacket will be getting some wear soon, also!

I made this collage for my brother. It's a ton of hip-hop CD covers, with some actual CDs scattered...

Rumi had posted about earrings like these back in June, and I've been craving a pair. I finally have convinced my faja to make me a pair...but he wants some details! I tried to describe them, but I honestly don't even know what they look like off the ear. Can somebody please send me some pictures of the earring off the ear, or anything to help me design them for myself?! It would be greatly appreciated.

UPDATE: Found these on Bleach Black, gives a tad more insight into how they stay on the ear...

Question I've been thinking about recently: If a blogger puts up posts that take less work but are of greater quality, is said blogger slacking off and being a "bad blogger?" I'm very curious, please give me your opinions!


don't lie to yourself

I had scheduled a doctors appointment for today about 4 months ago, and it turned out I wasn't feeling well! Quite the coincidence, huh? After my appointment I only had two more classes, so I just skipped and came home. I have a whole long list of things to catch up on, I feel like today is the day I will finally get organized! Oh, those Wednesdays.... :)

While I was looking through my Google Reader for some inspiration for a post, I remembered a page I added to my delicious bookmarks the other day. Zach Gold's page. He's a photographer, and just one picture made such a large impact on me I just had to visit his site. He has several categories of images: action, commission (you may recognize some Motorola ads), fashion, and personal, and let me just tell you, every single photo is absolutely stunning. I proceeded to screen-shot, crop, and upload almost 50 photos. It wouldn't be kind to your browsers to put all of them here, but I will show you some of my favorites and thumbnail the rest. Take a look for yourself at his site, it's just amazing!
