fashion find.

The term 'starving college student' has plagued us all...
but for one victim of perpetual brokeness,
he decided to do something about it...
Introducing Shulga Shoes!

If these shoes look a bit familiar to you,
that's because I blogged about them before;
or rather about my pair lol...

The artist, Chris Shulga, my boyfriend,
takes a pair of plain white vans, a bunch of Sharpies, and goes for it.
The result, a pair of custom Vans for under 30bucks...
Mind you, this doesn't purchase of the Vans.

His designs were featured in our college's Newspaper,
and they can be found on the soles of a number of our classmates.
To get your own pair, get more info, or contact the artist,
check out his site:

p.s. Check out The Collegian article that spotlights him...

Also this past Thursday...
My bestfriend introduced me to Stumble Upon.
Ever wonder what it would be like to have online ADD?
Well, that's the best way I can explain Stumble Upon.
Just click the StumbleUpon logo on you toolbar,
and be blasted to some random website...
The sites you will discover are ridiculous...
So, Thanks Steven for introducing me to this!!!

never stop dreaming.

“We plan our lives according to a dream
that came to us in our childhood,
and we find that life alters our plans.
And yet, at the end, from a rare height,
we also see that our dream was our fate.
It's just that providence had other ideas
as to how we would get there.
Destiny plans a different route,
or turns the dream around,
as if it were a riddle,
and fulfills the dream
in ways we couldn't have expected.”
-Ben Okri

p.s. Ben Okri was a Nigerian author who used magic realism
to convey the social and political chaos in his country, 1959.



an epic return...

DC here i come.




"All men dream but not equally.
Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds
wake in the day to find that it was vanity;
but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men,
for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible."
-T.E. Lawrence

to the fathers of the world.

In response to my post about daughters...
I would like to address the fathers.

Be kind to your daughters.
Take responsibility.
Protect them.
Love them.

Fathers, to your daughters, you are their world.
It's you who they look to when someone wrongs them.
It is you that they know will always defend them.
It is you that they will love unconditionally.
Never take their love for granted.

"So fathers, be good to your daughters.
Daughters will love like you do.
Girls become lovers who turn into mothers.
So mothers, be good to your daughters too."
Daughters - John Mayer

p.s. Check out this article by a father that I feel compliments this post.
"Top 10 Life Lessons I’ve Learned From My Daughter (So Far)"



To the daughters of the world.

I'm dedicating this post to all the women of the world.

To every woman who has ever been called a slut.
To every woman who has ever been harassed.
To every women made to come second to a man.
To every woman who has been forced to put aside their dreams for someone else.
To every woman who has been hurt by a man.
To every woman who hates herself because the world wills it.
To every woman feeling alone in this world, without a glimmer of hope in sight.
To every woman who has ever had to give up a baby because the father left.
To every woman who is struggling to support her child on her own.
To every woman who reads this... you are special.

Little girl, hold your head up high, walk with confidence...
never let anyone tell you that you aren't descended from royalty.

You are beautiful, intelligent, creative, insightful, and above all...

"You are beautiful no matter what they say.
Words can't bring you down.
'Cause you are beautiful in every single way.
Yes, words can't bring you down.
So don't you bring me down today."
Beautiful - Christina Aguilera
