cardi/necklace:f21, dress: Gap, belt:TJMaxx, tights: Free People, boots:Charlotte Russe, so i tried sock burn curls this morning, and it mostly worked, i touched up a few places, but nonetheless i was pleasantly surprised.  here’s the best picture allie got of my hair, you can kinda tell, but i really liked them because  it was gentle on my hair and the curls are kinda laid back  i got all fancied up for tights tuesday (thanks kassie) and then my day turned…  WONDERFUL cause i finally, finally, FINALLY, got my letter from craig.  yay! it was a good one too, like 5 pages.  what. a. guy. guess what he told me to do? write more poetry. he’s a smart one. anyways, i must go write a paper (ever since i stopped taking so many real classes and  started taking more art classes, writing essays has become increasingly more difficult.) so i leave […]

feeling a bit more dapper.

Cardi/shirt:Gap, Infiniti Scarf: Loft, Pants: Target, Boots: Charlotte Rouse I tried this way of wearing boots with pants, my roommate melissa taught me! So I’m back to Provo. i was so excited for the semester to start,  then i couldn’t get a bunch of classes i wanted. yesterday was hell. then i found an alternative… it’s called, “take said classes in Europe next summer.” thats right, imagine taking typography AND illustration in London. getting to visit museums on the reg. you know, just chillin in the Lourve.. talking bout all things art and design.

Heyo! today is wednesday, that means tomorrow is basically my friday cause it’s my last day of classes.  YAY! I finally made a to do list yesterday and dedicated myself to finishing it. Usually that is not a huge feat for me, but it’s been kinda hard to be motivated lately.  [however, can i just remind us all how good it feels to check something off a to do list?!?!?!]  Monday Melissa and I had to give the Lesson for FHE  (for those who don’t know what that is, it stands for Family Home Evening, and since at college our families are gone, we are divided into “families” amoung the other singles in our congregation and every week we have an activity and/or a lesson, it’s kinda awesome actually).   We based our less on Ian S. Ardern’s talk called A Time to Prepare. Basically it helped me realize that […]

delicious: -The sunrise two days ago, coming over the mountains with storm clouds making the light more beautiful. it was worth lifting my head for a second before going back to sleep -probably. hopefully, most likely, fingers crossed selling my extra apartment contract for winter 🙂 -impulsive hair dying. –grape salad -finally finishing my Chuck Close inspired collage for 2D design after a final 5 hour stretch this morning -fall weather, bringing fall fashion! – guy on the corner today dancing [with a sign that said “Go BYU! Tips Welcome]. complete with the moon walk and splits. needless to say, my date and i were incredibly impressed. -my newly kindled desire to regularly write in my journal -The Provo Beach Center. I went into it for the first time today, it’s got everything you could possibly dream of! [if your dreams include, surfing, ropes cores, bowling, carousal, virtual golf, arcade, […]

This is super weird, i’ved posted something to my blog THREE days in a row. I gotta say i like this little habit that is starting to form. and i’m hoping you like it too. Today it rained, Provo finally cooled down. The rain couldn’t have come at a better time for me. In my weird poetic mind, i feel like it was just waiting on me. Because my eyes finally did some raining today.  And though i had more of a woe-is-me-love-sucks reason to cry, i realized it was more of a man-this-hurts-my-heart-really-bad-but-i’m-going-to-trust-God-cause-he-seems-to-be-telling-me-loud-and-clear-that-something-better-is-in-store-for-mekind of reasons to let my eyes rain. Today we talked about receiving personal revelation in my Mission Prep Class.  One thing that struck a chord with me was knowing that when God tells you you’re on the right track, it’s usually him bringing your heart in conjuction with your mind. He did that for me today. […]

delicious: –General Conference! so amazing to be in the same room as the prophet of God!-The Utah State Capitol Building. Seriously felt like i was in a fairy tale, i’ll post some pictures at the bottom of this post. wow.-shopping at Urban Outfitters.-being a Gapaholic-The shins. Today i decided to listen to the mood of music that i WANTED to be in. rather than the mood that i was in, which was totally a Civil Wars mood.-the amount of frozen yogurt joints in provo -my roommates making me cookies cause they had a feeling this weekend was hard for me. not so delicious: -farting audible in the hallway waiting for class to start and looking around and realizing i have no one to blame it on… -having realizations about my heart i never knew existed -shading. i’m apparently really awful at this. hopefully it’s not my downfall in my drawing […]
