He says I commissioned it, rather than acted as a muse, but it’s a small detail we must all overlook. 
On the other hand, what is difficult to overlook is the horrid quality of these photos, but what can you do.* I spent a few hours hanging out (as muse) while Emily, who is an amazing violinist, and Trey worked on the song.

Friday night I went out for my friend Trey T.’s 21st birthday! It was great, my Trey even came to dinner (a lot of Treys). Later we hit the club and Trey T.’s parents surprised him by showing up — actually they had already been in line and he got to cut ahead & have his first legal drink with them :)

Yes, I am wearing leather shorts underwear. See more photos here.

Trey sent me cute pictures of bunnies (100 of them!). Ahh, so cute!

My month-long no shopping went great! (Except for that one day I visited a thrift store and a wee little sale at Forever 21 earlier this week… but those don’t even count…) Today is the official day it is over. I had to say no a lot of times, but ultimately it was a good thing because in the last month I have gone from wearing a heavy coat to tank-tops. FYI, the best sweater sales are happening right now, if you don’t have any better stock up for the next year!

Today on the fun radar I have plans to spend time with my friends! Accompanied by sushi. I was reading a sushi book last night, which you should never do it you don’t have any sushi with you. 

Next week I plan to do more illustrations, but for now let’s all enjoy the weekend :)

Don’t you just love Boyfriend’s suspenders? I thought about getting a pair of my own.

I am bound to be true



The temperature was exceptional that day! I was neither hot, nor cold; winter wear is great, except that oftentimes I am hiding behind a great big coat. Spring-like weather is much more bearable.



Wearing white Express blouse, Zara pants, and black patent Aldo oxfords.

Photos taken by none other than Boyfriend, also known as Trey Penton. Check out some of his photography!

We took a bike ride down Davis Island to enjoy the water and to take some photos. His photos (taken by me) coming soon!

The Moment

I love the New Year. I wish it could happen more than once a year, like two times a year!

Back to school in Fall is almost like a New Year, but it’s not quite the same. No! Not quite, and soon there will be no more school to go back to, leaving me with only one New Year.

There is something about beginnings and endings that can be a wonderful, overwhelming mix of emotions. It is all too welcomed and refreshing! Of course, this is something that isn’t truly lasting, but I still think there could be lasting changes (for the better! duh).

And now, on Day Four of the New Year, I would like to present you with an update on my Resolutions (allow me put my serious glasses on):

1. Stop making odd faces in pictures.

The only pictures I have taken since the New Year began were on Day One, and well, let’s just say I am “trying too hard”, but improvement is on the way.

2. Live in the Moment.

So far so good… Computer Time has mostly been while at work… only downside is that I haven’t gotten a chance to upload photos from the last few days! Also, I had to set a chunk of time for reading e-mails.

3. Reduce money spent at Forever 21 by vast amounts.

So far $0 have gone to that store. On the other hand, Express was located conveniently close to Forever while out for coffee last night…

4. Put together a portfolio.

Bought a 0.35mm Micron, why didn’t I before?

Text-only posts are boring. Here is a picture of my girl-toy and me taking down the West (or is building it up?).

Gone Out



Before going out for a semi-formal a few days ago. Trey has more pictures that may make their way up later.

I wore a faux Banana Republic shawl mom is allowing me to borrow and sequin royal blue dress.

Christmas Rose

A flower from Trey, I think it was actually from Valentine’s Day… but I thought Christmas first, so that’s the title, better like it!

Opposite Views.

Trey and I went for some lunch in-between moving and straightening his apartment.

Compare our meals.



In case you cannot tell:

He is having fried chicken strips, onion rings and a baked potato with sour cream and butter.

My meal consists of baked lemon-butter chicken and tomatoes, grilled asparagus and steamed broccoli.

One day my nagging might turn him to real vegetables, but not any day soon.

After our meal we went to Target to find the boy some home-ware, but all he bought was a pair of boots! For me!! I was really excited/embarrassed because I had not idea he planned to buy them for me until we were at the register and I became flustered as I tried to argue my way into paying them for me to the cashier’s amusement.

Best boyfriend ever! :)
