Innovative and fun furniture

So while I am still working on moving out of the house I am sharing with my roommates (a.k.a parents.) I am creating a wish list of all the wonderful and innovative things I wish would occupy my "invisible not-yet purchased home". The little "interior designer" within me finds a certain euphoria in finding that special piece that just connects with every bone and nerve in my body. Trust me its a  challenge in decorating a space when  you live with people who think that the light switch cover with the little 3D Nemo fish looks attractive in a living room that doesn't house any children or even have an "ocean" theme for that matter! (sorry mom). Perhaps my taste in comparison is no improvement to the mismatch catastrophe I currently reside in,  but it certainly is a bit more interesting don't you think? I've grown up with the plastic covered couches, and the really bad over-sized leather sofa you stick to during the summer, the giant "flat" screen TV from the late 90's (that weren't so flat) and believe me... I DON'T WANNA GO BACK! 

Whew! Now that I got that off my chest...Your living space should exude everything you are and everything that inspires you, and with stuff this wacky and fun, I think it be hard not to be zapped with creativity! True; some of this stuff is a little too much... but just  imagine coming home full of this stuff!? Every moment would have to be a photo shoot! And entertaining your friends would be a breeze, especially since every object in that room would be a conversation starter!

This Nasty Gal is a Smart Gal!

For those of you looking for the secret answers to becoming a successful  individual click here . Okay wait...false advertisement!!! So It might not be the only thing you need in order to becoming that successful individual or entrepreneur you dream of, but it certainly is a step in the right direction (hint: its a great article), especially in giving your spirit some surge! (we need that every once in a while, or else I feel we become conformist.) In going through the slide show (which consisted of celebrities, producers and entrepreneurs)  The only interview that completely captivated my attention was that of Sophia Amoruso, which then prompted me to Google the heck out of her name! I had heard her story and mostly rumors about  her company and her beginnings, but it wasn't until I really researched her that just left me inspired. (yes that seems to be a reoccurring theme with me..the being inspired part.) 
In my personal experience, I always seem to start something and never finish (usually with my personal goals, never work related of course!) my "patience" has allot to do with that too, I work fast, so I expect fast results (something I also need to work on...) I also tend to overbook myself with so many activities that I tend to loose sight of things and I really need to focus in on this as well...but enough about my insecurities, fears and self doubt!!  If I learned anything at all from this it would be that,
"all great things have small beginnings" -said by someone I'll need to Google later...
As a human-being going through the daily struggle of life, and self discovery, I  still believe that we can all achieve success (whatever that may be) and we will  all have our moment  to achieve our dreams when the time is right! So for those of you who find this whole success thing to be an "easy" fete, kudos to you and please keep becoming those individuals we aspire to be! But for all you  late-bloomers out there, who are still trying to figure this thing out (myself included)... don't lose sight of your dreams! Lets do this!
 (I feel as if I should give you a high-five and bust out in song now...waiting for my cue...wait..I missed never-mind) Nonetheless... I'm Hyped! (muscle flex)

When pigs fly...or float

An interesting rendition of the movie poster regarding the dead pigs incident in China, you can read  article here.

Lets have fun with fashion!

 Looking through and all those awesome pics Tommy Ton manages to capture from all those shows always leaves me feeling inspired! All the fun colors, bloggers, shoes, bags, hats, and attitude! *gasping for air* Cant it be fashion week everyday, and everywhere!!?!  Wouldn't it be so pretty to see our sidewalks to turn into catwalks where one doesn't need a special occasion to dress their best?? Yes, yes you've caught a glimpse of  the day-dreamer within me, which brings me to the whole purpose of this post. Anna Dello Russo. The woman with the many looks, the woman who NEVER wears the same thing twice! (not that there's a problem with that, I myself am a repeat offender.)  If you don't know who she is or haven't yet Google'd  her name, she is the "editor-at-large"and creative consultant  for Vogue Japan and she just so happens to be photographed wearing some of the coolest looks during fashion week and probably every other regular day! No matter how off the wall and ridiculous some of her looks may be, at the end of the day its ridiculously FUN! And whoever said fashion had to be so serious?!   Well, enough of my jibber are worth a thousand words, prepare to be inspired! 
Some of my favorite Anna Dello Russo looks<3

Yet another inspiring quote from one of the smartest men of our time...Lets be imaginative people!

LBC keeps it nice and "Proper"

Thanks to my Bf's recent urge to update his footwear, we decided to venture out to the city of Long beach to visit our favorite little sneaker store "Proper". They have a great selection of  exclusive and hard to find styles that die-hard sneaker-heads would appreciate! Sadly enough however they don't carry enough Adidas for the fellas or a matter of fact they don't really have a good selection for the ladies period! But please, don't let my bitterness stop you from visiting! I don't think  the store is to blame for the lack of ladies styles, if anything we should rage against the brands themselves for always offering us the same old conventional pink, white, or black sneakers... don't they know us ladies crave variety in our lives!?!?

The universal language of dance

This is such a beautiful and strong performance, and even though I don't understand what the heck home-gurl is goes to show that dance is truly a universal language!

I hate the taste of Olives...but I like this one!!!!

This has immediately become my new favorite online shop!

its a graphic mash-up!
I've always been a graphic tee kind a gal, and this Fall season I'm super duper excited about Givenchy's graphic mash-up! I especially love the pairing of all these outfits with the sheer fabrics and sparkle. There is plenty of funk and  urban appeal in this collection and I cant wait to see this look on the streets!

•L.A.M.B• Fall 2013 Ready to wear
Ahhh yes, please give me the funk! Browsing through  L.A.M.B's Fall 2013 collection on, I couldn't help but to pick out my favorites! I also couldn't help but to blast in my little ear buds the sounds of No Doubt, "Im just a girl" in commemoration of Gwen Stefani's killer style! Though I am a fan of  the plaids, and checkered prints I couldn't fight the urge but to gravitate towards their military inspired looks (even though it seems this look is overdone each and every  fall season) Nonetheless I prefer L.A.M.B's take on military way better!! The  pops of  cobalt blue that was used throughout the collection (which was also a color that was everywhere on the runway last year) is a  shade that looks good on a just about anyone! By the way its a little quiet in here aint it?!? lets all rock out to the video below and check out Gwen's military bomber..."No doubt" shes always been a style icon!

Eye candy meant for your Neck
 Lanvins  neck plates are on my wish list! This makes me just want to pile on  the bling this and every other season!! Not to mention those awesome random  pins attached! 

Girls can rock too!

Geeze... I must say... BOTH these kids gets down! but little lady killed it for sure! Its moments like this that remind me that every individual no matter how small or big has the ability to make an impact, whether it be through art, music, fashion and dance. Your freedom to express yourself is priceless! (...which reminds me...I gotta practice!)

From the bottom up

Greetings to whomever I've managed to connect with through this tiny little thing called the Internet. I figure this being my very first post Id start from the bottom up (hence the awesome footwear!) Though I wont really be favoring a specific topic or order in my posts, Ill try to make sure to keep this as sporadic and spontaneous as possible. Like all the bazillion other blogs out there, I'll be sharing my interests and passions...*yawn* ugh can I sound any more cliche?!? Lets cut this short...BASICALLY, Ill be posting up the random funky Sh!t I see, like,make, and must have! My style aesthetic: sporty, chic, and FUNky! Style and function must meet on my please take a scroll down my memory banks! (Ha! that's funny right?!?) eh...well, enjoy!

So the "sneaker freak" in me cant seem to get enough of bright white sneakers!! These are essential to have on hand...or on foot! The "sporty chic" trend that was goin on for a while has always been "in fashion" for me! Though I do appreciate that much needed height and butt lift  from my platform pumps and wedges I am forever loyal to my bright white kicks!
