Stickerifying My Headphones

Hello lovelies!! Oh, I can't remember if I've done a post on these already... anyway, I thought I should.

I have a sticker obsession - I try to find them everywhere, from Japan to my local In-n-out. I stick them on my computer, my record player, basically all over. And of course, my pair of headphones!!

These are URBANEARS from Urban Outfitters. I loved the color, but I felt I needed to personalize them. I combined stickers from in-n-out, liza frank, and DIY stickers from magazine clippings to make them ~ super pretty ~. Yeah!! It's an easy way to make your headphones unique :)

Some Art I've Been Doing

Hello lovelies!! I thought I'd update you on some of the art pieces I've finished recently. 

This one is a collage thingy which includes:
an ink drawing of me being moody
a little quote a wrote that incorporates the line "perspective is for astronauts" from a book I love
my watercolor paper towel

I imagined this to be like the conversation through texting after a really fun night hanging out with an awesome person... that maybe doesn't want to talk to you anymore. I don't know?

And this is a little section of an ink and watercolor piece I'm doing. It's from a picture that was taken of me lacing up my Dr. Martens in Ireland last summer, and I love it!

Choker Obsession

Hello lovelies!!! I have a confession to make... I'm obsessed with (making) chokers. I mean, I have all of the materials and the cutest charms and I just can't stop!!! I made two yesterday.

Look at all of the adorable charms!!! Amethyst, elephants, a charm from Venice (Italy), a star, and a little clover... I'm seriously addicted.

If any of you lovely readers have suggestions on how to wear chokers/what to wear with them, please comment! I need some outfit ideas for all of these necklaces!!

Lomography In Japan

Hello lovelies!! I got a bunch of photos back from developing recently, and I picked my four favorites to share with you. 

These photos were taken on black and white Ilford 120mm film in my Diana F+ camera. On the top is a photo of me in Tokyo and the cherry blossoms in one of the gardens there.
On the bottom is a neon arrow inside a mall and cherry blossoms/buildings from the same garden, as well as a subway sign. 

My scanner isn't working currently, so I'd have better pictures but this is all I can do right now :(

Coachella 2014: Weekend 1, Day 3 Recap (music, outfit & more!)

The last day of Coachella 2014 Weekend 1 was amazing. 

Outfit of the day:

I forgot a picture.... :(
Monki Crop Top
Levi's High Waisted Shorts
White High Top Converse

Sets I saw:

Surfer Blood


The 1975

Blood Orange

Neutral Milk Hotel

Lana Del Rey


(When A Fire Starts To Burn)

(can't remember what song this was)


(Latch w/ Sam Smith)

Favorite Set(s) of the day:
The 1975 and Disclosure, but I loved absolutely everything.

Favorite moments:
During STRFKR, people in different costumes came on stage, danced around, and crowdsurfed. It was absolutely hilarious and so much fun,
Neutral Milk Hotel requested that no one take photos or videos of them, and it was so nice to finally watch a set without iPhones blocking the actual performance. Don't get me wrong - I'll take a picture or a short video, but that's all... I hate watching music through a screen.

Aluna from AlunaGeorge, Mary J. Blige, and Sam Smith came out to each perform a song with Disclosure!!

My friends and I after Disclosure ended. Such an awesome final day to one of the best weekends of the year!
