This is not a goodbye... this is a see ya later.

I'm taking a break from this thing called a blog from now until I go back to school... I have a few things to focus on... namely, my job which starts tomorrow, the apartment I'm getting with some friends at school (we sign the papers this week), getting my fall/winter wardrobe completed (it's about 70% there)...

So like I always say when I go on sabbaticals... don't be a stranger to my archives... be sure to check out the blogs of my friends and the various websites I frequent listed to the right... and I'll still post twitter updates... which can be found below on this clever little widget I included so I can make quick updates.



I hate to admit this but...

I can't say I completely agree or disagree on the matter of NeoConservatism...
but I can say that it is a political philosophy that I would like to educate myself about.

I don't believe war is a way to bring about peace,
but I do believe we must become proactive with
our peace keeping efforts rather than reactive...
so in that sense I agree with NeoCon.

This video gave me a lot to think about... though it is only 10m long.
Once again, thank you so much Sonny G for posting this.

Okay... Let me run a few things by you... try to keep up.

First... watch this video...
it's my favorite song by Katy Perry other than Mannequin.

Then look at this picture of Zooey Deschanel.

Now... watch this clip from Kathy Griffin's show
My Life on the D-List which features actor Matt Dallas.

Now to the purpose of this post.

1. I know Thinking of You is Katy Perry's song, and it's only natural that the singer actually star in a music video for their song... but to be completely honest... Zooey Deschanel should have starred in this video... the only time I watched it, I kept thinking, gosh, Katy Perry looks so much like ZD its crazy...
just put her in the video instead of Katy... at least she can act... and at that, allow Zooey to sing the song as well... she has the talent [fyi, besides acting, she's in a folk duo named She & Him].

2. Why did they cast Matt Dallas as her love interest/husband??? It's no secret that he's gay... well, he's not out... but it's no secret he's gay... I'm not one to speculate about people, or believe in "signs" or "gaydar" but in this case, I'm making an exception... case and point... the above clip from Kathy Griffin's show.
If anything they should have cast like, Emile Hirsche or someone... anyone other than an obviously gay male... it does nothing to help Katy's faghag image [not that that's a bad thing... i love my hags... some of the closest friends I have in this life]...

3. Thats all... I'm going to bed... its 2.45a and I'm torn between either having a marathon of The O.C. tomorrow... or shopping the sale racks at Urban Outfitters...
I really should save my measly 30bucks... but I do need to get out of the house...
ugh... dumb Global Economic Crisis.




Fast forward to 3:30... Girrrrl.

Here's something to get excited about...

The days of summer might be drawing to a close, yet the evening hours relent. Hence, the perfect time for LA based contemporary fashion brand Hellz to introduce their “Kicks After Six” capsule delivery. A concise yet bold collection, this limited 6 piece line extends Hellz’ ongoing graphic themes incorporating the idea of empowered defiant women that exude nothing but vicious confidence.

Hellz Creative Director, Lanie Alabanza-Barcena expounds, “Inspiration for the graphics were drawn from familiar faces of fashion icons and iconic fashion brands who celebrate them."

We are reaching the end of another week...

Ordinarily, I get really excited for the summer, and I take advantage of every bit of it... however, this year... I can't continue to pretend like it's all good. Blame the Global Economic Crisis; blame the fact that 2/3 into the summer, my job is FINALLY starting; blame my overbearing mother and my delusional father... but I am just anxious for it to be over already so I can get back to the life I left behind in California. I wish Time Turners actually existed, so I could speed up this charade of a summer vacation.

Enough of the pessimism... I have laundry to finish,
and a driver's test to take in about 14 hours... so I should probably get off this computer.

I hope the rest of your summers are faring better than mine has...
or at least you're finding ways to make the most of it.

P.S. The above pic was posted by Miley Cyrus to her twitter [@mileycyrus], I thought it was pretty...

I never realized that the HOTNESS that is Robert Pattinson [Edward Cullen in Twilight], played Cedric Diggory in the fourth Harry Potter movie till just this very moment... I am probably not revealing any big news to anyone, but this was mind blowing for me... I want to go watch HP4 just because he's in it... OMG!!!
That's All.


I'm desperately trying to resist the urge... // Noteworthy.

Le Smoking

This is a blog dedicated to superb photography featuring cigarettes.

I'm not a smoker... at least not a cigarette smoker...
but for the past few months, I have been desperately fighting the urge to light up.

I have a desire to become a social smoker...
a cigarette in one hand, and a glass of vodka in the other...

Cigarettes cause cancer kids... don't do it.

Congrats Meaghan for winning Canada's Next Top Model cycle 3...

Though I didn't like Meaghan at all during the competition, I'm satisfied with the decision.

I still wish Maryam had made it to the final 3... she would have so made it to the top 2... and then she would have lost it to Linsay... but whatever.

Time to watch Project Catwalk [Britain's answer to Project Runway]
Warding off television till Gossip Girl returns in September.

Currently reading Lost In The City by Edward P Jones... looks to be a good book.

Seeing Harry Potter in about 12.5 hours at some point [it's currently 1a as I type this]... lets hope its good.

I really want a pair of boots like the ones pictured on the left in the last picture.


Live. Laugh. Love.

So take time to just enjoy it... rather than live in stress, and pessimism...
smile... laugh... jump around... just live life...
and let nothing, and no one keep you from doing just that...
I hope you all are having a good summer...
I'm learning to live this summer, I hope you are too.



Time to rest...

Until then, indulge yourself in my archives.

Enjoy your Fourth of July weekends everyone.

Sasha Fierce Goes Back to School...

The House of Deréon, Bey & Tina's line, are planning to release a line of trendier,
younger clothes for the Back to School season.
The line is said the be inspired by Beyoncé's alter ego, Sasha Fierce [hence the name]

It just all looks a tad cheap, and i've seen these looks already...
from Forever 21 and Wet Seal, to Macy's and Express.

I love the Diva, but The House of Diarrhea needs to just hang up it's coat.
