Styles I'm Into Now

These are the styles I'm into now or at least I've seen that are quite trendy (or at least in my mind)


1.American Flags
Shirley from Meek~n~Mild
BlackMilk Clothing 
Rita Ora
I won't lie. I haven't been into American flags since 2001, when me and all of American went into FULL OVER LOAD. Now I have been trying to recover all those USA rings and bags I had in the closet somewhere. But I will admit, the American flag (as well as the British) are very attractive flags. Whether its the colors and the positioning of the stars and stripes, you must it admit its a pretty flag!

2.Colored Hair or as some call MERMAID HAIR!

Can I dye my hair this color? No, but I can buy clip in color extensions for pleasure and take them out for business (yea right). But girls if you are going to dye it, please use MANIC PANIC, its much more healthier and doesn't last as long (in case you change your mind)

3.Crosses
Topshop
is that self promotion? Hell yeaz

Ashley Tisdale

I was always into crosses. Crosses as a style of fashion have been around for a long time, but maybe never as popular and visible as they are. Even the trend simmers down, I  think they will never go away.

4.Tights,Body Suits,Just BlackMilk Clothing Period

Tights have been coming back for the last 5 years, but not like this. Blackmilk tights are the ones I am talking about! One of the only kind of tights you can wear as pants and not create massive stares (except where did you get those?) and camel toes.

5.Tie Dye Shorts

A trip to your local thrift store and a  simple youtube search can lead you to tons of tutorials on how to DIY. UPDATE: I found a tutorial by one of my fav gurus Andrea's Choice! Now go forth and conquer those shorts!

6. Claw/Vampire /Round Tip Nails
Rita Ora
Lana Del Rey
Melody Ehsani's Nails

Initially re-popularized in 2009, its now 2012 and they are still going strong.

7.Unicorns

When have these been cool? I don't know, maybe when I was in 6th grade? Oh well, I like unicorns cause I'm kind of like an unicorn!(you know, different,strange,weird?yea). I am going to be selling these earrings at the end of the month btwwww. UPDATE: NOW

8.Skulls, Skeletons
Donnie Darko Anyone?
Topshop


I have liked this for a while however I think they are over-saturating the market. Hopefully they won't become too big and then become a horrible fad (like Von Dutch..remember?ew)

3 Female Entrepreneurs Part 1

1.Melody Ehsani of Melody Ehsani


2. Sophia Amoruso of NASTY GAL


3.Sharmadean Reid of WAH Nails


I like the stories of people who started on their own. Without being rich, or knowing someone that can just give it to them, or having big connections. Just starting it on your own,with nothing, like regular people.

Top Five Regrets of The Dying


I think its important to be happy. I think its important to let your kids be happy. I think you should do what you want. As long as its moral and legal, I think everyone is entitled to do what they want with their lives, their bodies, and their minds. Not doing what you want, leads a very sad life. A life full of regret,misfortune,depression and isolation. Therefore, you should do what you want, because you will never be as young as you are now, you will never live again, and you are stuck with this decision. I ran upon this article from a online news program called The Young Turks,called "Regrets of the Dying." I'm sure you, the living, can identify with this. So here it goes:

 1. I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
A lot of you can identify with this. Going day in and day out being what others want you to be,what society expects of you, breathing but not really living.

 2. I wish I hadn't worked so hard.
Is hard work worth it? Most times not. You spend your life being a slave to money then dying (or being so old and decrepit you don't even know where you are most of the times). Never truly enjoying your effort, or watching others who work less get all the benefit. Am I saying be unemployed or lazy? No. But think about it, if you are miserable, is it worth it?

3. I wish I'd had the courage to express my feelings.
Some people usually don't say how they feel in fears of being judged or rejected. But you may as well say how you feel, because people will not like you anyway. If you want to say something, just say it.

4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
I can't relate to this ha!Maybe when I am old and dying I will. However having true friends is a benefit. It keeps you happy,grounded, and in touch with reality.

5. I wish that I had let myself be happier. 
Life is too short to be miserable, even if being miserable is inevitable for some. True happiness to me, is a scary thing, never knowing when something will abruptly end it. I have fear of true happiness, because whenever I have reached true happiness some big thing has interrupted it (death,natural disasters,misfortune) but I suppose its worth risk, if you are willing to take it.

I hope this is an inspiration to those who want to live their lives or are afraid to.  Am I doing what I want? Hell no,but I'm trying...desperately trying.

Thomas Kinkade 1958-2012

The Wizard of Oz
Well this post was in the drafts from three months ago, but since he unfortunately died yesterday I may as well post it now. I found this artist while looking for "concept art"for Princess and The Frog. If you google this term with any movie title it will send you to tons of the original visions for movies and TV shows that (most times) actually look better than the film itself. Kinkade did so many BEAUTIFUL paintings its hard picking even 10 as a favorites. You have to pick them all! They are quite BREATHTAKING (kind of makes you emotional). Just posting these pictures for the blog was a challenge in itself, not to get lost in the paintings.
The Lion King
Beauty and The Beast
Disney World
Pinnochio
