-For those of us who want to take the cat lady trend to the next level.

…I’m obviously kidding. Cause I’m funny. That and I’m not sure if being a cat lady is a trend, not yet at least, I’ll make it big. Anyway, remember that time I was down on the blogging? No, not the first time. Oh, no, not even that other time. The most recent time. Yeah, that time. Well it’s not like I forgot about the blogging world completely, I was still thinking of things to post. I’ve forgotten most, but I remembered one today! (Yay!…) It brings together all the best things in life (minus love and happiness and that lame shit) sparkles, animals, and extravagance. I give you…ANIMAL WORLD by Chopard!

Just the favs...there are more!

It’s for their 150th anniversary and they wanted to do something different and thus brilliance was created. If you read the ‘About’ section they name off some animals not shown on the site, but it’s also been updated since I last looked so keep checking because you never know when you just have to drop $20,000 on a frog prince ring. Don’t worry, $20,000 is just an estimate…I’m sure it costs more than that. Hey, billionaires, give me a call? I swear I’ve got a dazzling personality.

P.S. You can kind of view some of the jewelry not showcased in the ‘Gallery’ section.

P.P.S. Watches too. Much more practical for $20,000, and “manlier”, so my ultra-riche hubby and I can match. (I know, I know, I’m so thoughtful. You’re in love with me already.)

Play-date activities by hallaek

I get bored easy. I don’t have a job. I do have an internship, and I’m doing a show, and classes, and have started dance and working out (woah), and I do shop quite a bit, but those who get bored easily know. All it takes is 20 minutes of nothing and I start whining to Tila via text messages. So apparently her and Christianne started brainstorming activities for me which ended up on a website with lists of what to do with kids during the day. I would be slightly offended, if I didn’t think most of the activities sounded like fun. Day 1: Bata Shoe Museum. I’ve been there many, many, many times (back when I was an actual “kid” and my parents would split time between the different museums and zoos and let me run around, all around, really, really fast!) My moms for the day…they’re not going to like that…had never been. Remember the first time you knew something that your parents didn’t? And how proud you were because they’re adults and you’re still little? Yeah, it was like that.

My moms (teehee) think they’re really casual, and us kids always want to make our parents happy, so the captions are casually for them, casually.

I had just come from an interview which is why I’m dressed that way, but those shoes are actually pretty comfortable except for the heel on the right foot is a bit weak so after a while it rubs, nothing Dr. Scholl’s can’t fix! Speaking of shoes, heard back from Miu Miu and those shoes from the last post are beautiful indeed, but our love affair may be put on hold. They are extremely expensive and there’s no trying and seeing and potentially returning, and I can’t justify spending that much on shoes I’ve never seen in person or been able to try on. Give me a shout if you see them on sale or for realsy? Great.

In the mean time, nOir Jewelry has some new ring styles up, and they’re very affordable. But which one? So conflicted…

Decisions, Decisions...

Perhaps convince Mom she should get the baby one (whole OBGYN thang) get the dog for my dog and then…well you see where I’m going with this. It’s like world domination. With rings.

P.S. I mean it this time, what should I name new cat bracelet animal friend?

P.P.S. Look! How cool! Chanel Hand Ring!



The Salvaged Post by hallaek

It’s not unknown that I have bad luck, or weird luck, or funny luck…in fact some of you know my theory about why bad/weird/funny things happen to me. This is not one of those moments. It’s just dumb, or silly, or kooky. (Words x 3 seems to be a theme already…I’m holding back synonyms.) Anyway, pictures taken then pictures lost then spirit broken. Boo. But the post will have pictures! Salvaged ones! Are they great? No. Will you live? Yes. Unless you don’t, sorry. Remember the Razza elephant necklace from ways back? Well, I traded him for a lion. I have too many elephants, besides I’m more like a big cat, right? You’ll see our new friend the lion in the following pictures (all three of them) and perhaps a dress repeat…salvaged! I’m sorry!

Now comes the filler! I like animals (no, really?) so here are two of my favourite pictures that I will one day recreate when I own a zoo, or a farm, or break into either/or.

Animals + Celebs + Pretty

Next up! I ache for these (in the pale pink/nude):

PASS OUT.

Miu Miu‘s latest. I actually saw them on ebay in International Sales because they have yet to hit North American stores. Called up NYC, I may or may not be on some sort of magical-studded-platform-loafer-shoe list. But you have to see the colour I’m talking about. Holy God. Yeah, I get excited about shoes a lot, but I haven’t been this excited since the Meow Meows, so a big thank you to the designers at Miu Miu. I’ll send them a thank you…in the form of money…in return for shoes.

Now onto something that has been on my mind: I’ve been very caught up in accessories, and names, and wanting (which is not going to change so if you don’t want to embrace materialism move on blog-reader), but I feel like perhaps I’ve lost some of why I originally started this. I still post pictures of myself as an obviously curvier girl embracing fashion, but pictures of other gals that don’t fit into the “model” cookie cutter (that most bloggers fall into) who also embrace fashion have been lacking. Why? Lack of organization…laziness…shyness? All of the above. My short, curvy, proud, and fashion lovin’ gal pals make more than one appearance because they like to pose, know they have to if I say so, and I spend a lot of time with them. Hell, they might as well be contributors. So…what am I trying to say? I still think fashion doesn’t have a size requirement. I still think it’s about how you make fashion what you want it to be for you (which should always be fun). And I’m going to try my darndest to get some fresh meat, but if you want on, just let me know, sistah!

Now, watch the best dancing I’ve seen in a while, next three very funny sketches (I’m sure the other two are in the sidebar), and then holy-talent, this guy is amazing (also go to sidebar for the rest of his amazing videos). Sorry if you’ve seen these before, late post, it’s me…but now you’ve been reminded of how great YouTube can be. (“Can be”, not “Is”.)
