2011 Moving Forward, I cant believe you are here already. 2010 came and went like a bad boyfriend and Im not looking back. Only forward and onto bigger and better things. Im ready for great things to happen this year. I dont want to make New Year's Resolutions but I do want to promise myself to live more. Ive deactivated my Facebook account in an effort to jump out of the fishbowl for a little while. I was feeling very narcississtic and didn't want to be a part of it anymore. Im keeping my blog because its just for me and I hope that people that come to check it out enjoy it at least a little bit. My biggest thing is that they are coming to view my ramblings of their own free will. They are not involuntarily subjected to my nonsense and I not to theirs. I am in no way bashing anybody that enjoys Facebook or Twitter or Myspace. I love them too but sometimes I feel like I really dont need to know every aspect of someones life, unless Im following your blog. That was kind of a joke because maybe blogging is the ultimate form of narcissism. Social networking is just a whole different animal. Its slowly becoming the devil...just like text messaging. Why cant we pick up the phone and say hi or send a handwritten letter. The world has become so impersonal that you even have to find out someone has passed via Facebook status. Im guilty of it too and I will definitely admit it but Im trying to make changes for the better and it starts with this. From here on out blogging will be my only outlet. You can't annoy the
willing right? And maybe Im the only one that is listening but hey that's a great start. Listen to yourself. Listen to your heart. Because when shit hits the fan, or doesnt, you can say, I DID IT MY WAY. Im not going to think of it so much as changing because I want to stay ME but I will say evolving. Ive stagnated for too
long in life. Its time to swim and not save anything for the swim back. It's time to let go of fear. Time to embrace the fear because that is the only way it can be conquered. Ive been afraid my whole life and I dont want to be afraid anymore. No more censorship. No more procrastination. No more. Im ready for 2011 not only because its the beginning of a new year but the beginning of a new life.
I want to travel, if only a 100 miles. I want to sing, if only in front of a few people. I want to write, even if I'm the only one reading. I want to love, Love, LOVE, even if its myself because I dont think Ive ever truly done that. I want to wear any damn thing I please and not feel afraid of what others will think.
I want to speak my mind when I feel. I want to take beautiful photographs and share them with the world. I want to LEARN LEARN LEARN. I want to change these WANTS to WILLS and I plan to. By monitoring my output and increasing the input I feel excited. Im excited for the future and it starts now.

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times".......

Looking back, it wasnt so bad was it????
What a year it has been.

I chopped off all my hair.....and it didnt stop here...I kept going shorter and shorter..even rocked a faux hawk.


Spent time with my best friend/cousin


watched my family grow


Yup, I really rocked that do...haha







and I love her....


made a friend for lizzy.


Went through an androgynous face...I loved it.


Danced on a bar...Coyote Ugly style


Happy St. Patrick's Day


Happy Halloween


Two of the best people you will ever meet.

I told ya, I had a mohawk



Saw some great shows....

This was a good year...I had my family and friends and the best part is that it was the beginning of a great life to come and just a precursor to the greatness that willl be 2011. I cant wait.

This might be good.

On Christmas Eve I chose to watch The September Issue. It was such a great decision. Fashion is Art!
Anna Wintour is captivating and mystical. The devil herself was draped in fur the majority of the film. Did she skin the fur herself? Maybe the animals killed themselves just to be worn by The Queen of Fashion. I actually saw a more human side of her. Her daughter rdiculed the seriousness of fashion in a roundabout but obvious way. All the while her mother is just beaming at her very own creation. I think the real star of the film was Grace Coddington. I wanted to see more and more of her. Anna and Grace were like an old married couple who talk about each other to their children, good and bad. Still you can see the immense admiration that these two women share as Anna speaks very highly of Grace at the end of the movie. The images that Grace creates are genius. Absolutely fantastic. Looking at one of Grace's images is like stepping into a fantastic world and never wanting to leave. Andre Leon Talley is so ridiculous and fun. I really loved this documentary and I may need to watch it again. Anna is perfection wiht her sharp bob and endless array of floral dresses. Is Anna the most powerful woman in America??? After Watching this documentary I agree that yes, she is the most powerful woman in America. Is Anna the most feared woman in America? Yes Yes Yes.
Ok I'm watching it again now.
I wish I had gotten a subscription to Vogue for Christmas.

I also got turned onto Pablo Neruda by a fabulous blogger. Amo Pablo Neruda is a genius. Absolute Genius. His words MOVE me.

And because Love battles

And because love battles
not only in its burning agricultures
but also in the mouth of men and women,
I will finish off by taking the path away
to those who between my chest and your fragrance
want to interpose their obscure plant.

About me, nothing worse
they will tell you, my love,
than what I told you.

I lived in the prairies
before I got to know you
and I did not wait love but I was
laying in wait for and I jumped on the rose.

What more can they tell you?
I am neither good nor bad but a man,
and they will then associate the danger
of my life, which you know
and which with your passion you shared.

And good, this danger
is danger of love, of complete love
for all life,
for all lives,
and if this love brings us
the death and the prisons,
I am sure that your big eyes,
as when I kiss them,
will then close with pride,
into double pride, love,
with your pride and my pride.

But to my ears they will come before
to wear down the tour
of the sweet and hard love which binds us,
and they will say: “The one
you love,
is not a woman for you,
Why do you love her? I think
you could find one more beautiful,
more serious, more deep,
more other, you understand me, look how she’s light,
and what a head she has,
and look at how she dresses,
and etcetera and etcetera”.

And I in these lines say:
Like this I want you, love,
love, Like this I love you,
as you dress
and how your hair lifts up
and how your mouth smiles,
light as the water
of the spring upon the pure stones,
Like this I love you, beloved.

To bread I do not ask to teach me
but only not to lack during every day of life.
I don’t know anything about light, from where
it comes nor where it goes,
I only want the light to light up,
I do not ask to the night
I wait for it and it envelops me,
And so you, bread and light
And shadow are.

You came to my life
with what you were bringing,
of light and bread and shadow I expected you,
and Like this I need you,
Like this I love you,
and to those who want to hear tomorrow
that which I will not tell them, let them read it here,
and let them back off today because it is early
for these arguments.

Tomorrow we will only give them
a leaf of the tree of our love, a leaf
which will fall on the earth
like if it had been made by our lips
like a kiss which falls
from our invincible heights
to show the fire and the tenderness
of a true love.

- Pablo Neruda

I am currently reading The Selected Poems of Pablo Neruda. Rumi is next. I want to read more. I want to write more. I want to see more of the world. I want to sing.... Im ready for this to begin. I'm ready.

You must find inspiration in everything. EVERYTHING.

A picture is a poem without words. - Horace

My good friend Irene and I went to a free show at Nasher Sculpture Center in Downtown Dallas. Free admission! We viewed some amazing art. Picasso, Matisse, and De Kooning, Oh My! On a student budget, which is less than zero,
we were able to see some really great sculpture and expand our minds. Also, we got to have fun while taking some shots in the amazing garden.
Every three months there is a new exhibit and it's free on the opening day. I will definitely be back again and again.

I love fashion blogs. The girls are so nice and pretty and definitely dressed to kill. I read fashion blogs daily. I love to read the ones from other countries and their take on "fashion". I love the blogs here in the good ol' U.S. of A too because they are more familiar but by no means ordinary. Pretty extraordinary ladies. From the photography to the writing about their daily lives, it's like a window into another world. Even if that world is very similar to mine, they have better shoes.

I started my blog with no specific intention or set idea of what it would be or has become. It is still the same. It's me. From what I love or aspire to love, and every once in while, a picture or two of yours truly. Sometimes I will give a glimpse of my world no matter how personal.

Lately Ive been wanting to mix it up a little bit. I'm wanting to add more pictures but as I stated, this is not a fashion blog. I dont dress to impress nine times out of ten but I really wish that I did. I wish that this was a fashion blog and I could post pics of me wearing designer duds but that's just not going to happen. I' m a t-shirt and jeans kinda gal. My favorite shoes are a beat up old pair of Converse. That's my comfort zone. Maybe that's my problem. I'm comfortable. I want to express myself in different ways and I really do believe that fashion is an art. It's a window to your soul. You are your own work of art. Treat yourself as such. I came up with this whole idea of Rosewood about a month back. I think I'm going to finally start putting that idea into motion. I also have another idea brewing but its not quite down yet. I'm really excited about that. Coming Soon!

So moving forward into the future, my blog will be changing. I'm really excited about this because It means I am changing. Change is good sometimes. Without change everything would stay the same. That's another thing that I love about fashion, its always changing, always creative. Constantly moving. I am going to include more picture posts because I'm getting back into my photography, book reviews because the world will read again, vent about life, keep my new section I want and add I recently with reviews.

I love the fashionistas in the blog world....not only are your dresses pretty but you gave me some great ideas. My outfits may not be on par with you ladies but I wouldnt want it any other way.


Art is the desire of a man to express himself, to record the reactions of his personality to the world he lives in. ~Amy Lowell

Blue Valentine

I need to see this movie NOW!


Vampire Weekend.

All this time I thought Vampire Weekend was a Christopher Pike book. I'm a little late to the party on this one but better late than never. But never late is better. :) I'd heard the name Vampire Weekend but never paid much attention and then I started listening to the Kid Cudi song, CudderisbaCK. I loved the beginning and had to figure out who Vampire Weekend. I think I will spend the weekend doing that.


LOL Maybe not "OWN" BUT....


I am actually excited about this new network now. Especially about the new show
Master Class. I love Oprah. I love what she represents. She is such an inspiration to women, minorities, the human spirit.
I am just in awe of all of her accomplishments and she does it all from the heart. It doesnt ever feel like she
is in it for the money. It seems the most happy rich people are those that aren't in it for the money.
Warren Buffett is another great example, but thats another blog in itself.

Be your authentic self.

His Mojo Soooooo Dope

I said it before, I'll say it again. Kid Cudi is on another level. He's on some intergalactic shit.

I lost it a lil for a while but Im back on Cudi. Back with a vengeance.

I will only answer to Mrs. Rager from here on out. Adress me as such. Man On The Moon II. Dope. So dope.

P.S. Cudi is so damn sexy! Of course, he's got some Mexican in him. I knew he was a cool motherfucker.
He lives in words not metaphors.

In my quest to find out what my idea of the "Rosewood" aesthetic is, one person pops into my head over and over. Zoeey Deschanel. Her style is classic and lovely. Her style is a great jumping off point.
