Design Portfolio.

So sorry for not posting in the L O N G E S T time, but I’ve been very busy!!
 
With finals happening this week, I had to create a design portfolio for my
Graphic Design class that highlighted things I’ve done.
I’m finally done! Here is the link if you want to check it out-

For now, that’s all! I leave for China in around JUST TWO WEEKS and then it’s off to New York 
for my summer internship! I’ll definitely be keeping you all posted on my travels,
until then-再见!

My #NYFW

This past weekend I was able to travel once again to my favorite city, NYC for fashion week
>>insert a very excited EEK<<
Many people have asked what exactly I’m doing while going to fashion week,
since I’ve been posting pictures without explanations/so sorry,
so of course I would love to tell what I’ve been up to!

Last fall, Anna (the creator of Judith&James) and I met and decided that
my earrings would be featured on her models for the show.
I of course would be invited and come to the show, so that’s what happened this fashion week also!
Last fall I was able to help with model fittings/styling before the show, but sadly this time my flight wasn’t there in time, insert sad face.
It still was a blast putting together my earrings again though, along with seeing one of my favorite designers/I literally wear it everyday-Chain Crochet(Carson Roncketto) show her jewelry with Anna’s collection as well!
//for more info about last fall’s fashion week, look at this post

Below I’ve posted the finale, my favorite Casual & Evening looks, what I wore to the show,
and  Tulip Louise- Anna E. Cottrell and myself(another Arkansas blogger, one of my favorites!)
I’ll be posting pictures later from the other designers at the show and of course my favorite fashion week looks.

The Color Story.

Lately I’ve been wearing the same colors-over and over again.
Oxblood, Army Green, + Cream. 
[with little-to-no variation]
I’ve found that this color combination is great together, and also great in separates! 
My favorite way to rock this color palette is with a green Army Jacket, Oxblood Lips and Cream pants/accessories.

I’m back from Blogshop, and let me tell you-it’s a life changer! [ok, maybe mostly a blog-changer].
I learned SO many wonderful tips and tricks of photoshop and blogging in general!
Upon going to this class, I knew slim to nothing about photoshop. I knew how to open up a picture-maybe add some weird things to it, nothing fancy-and that was about it.
Now I know way more than I ever thought possible, and I know how to create exactly what I want!
I’ll be posting more pretty pictures, pretty things-more pretty everything!

Bare with me while I try and devote more time into making my blog bigger and better!

Cold Blast.

 

If you haven’t noticed, it’s a tad frigid out!
This weekend however, I won’t be enjoying the warmer temps in Arkansas
but going to Chicago for some colder temps!

As you might’ve noticed on my twitter feed, I’ve been tweeting for a few days about going to Chicago, most recently about the 50 mph wind gusts that are currently delaying my flight as we speak/as I type.
But what am I going to Chicago for, to endure the negative temps you ask?
I would love to tell!

I’ve been a H U G E fan of Bri Emery’s blog, Design Love Fest for the longest time. She posts about all sorts-design, decoration, fashion, entertaining-you get the gist. [her site is where type and images totally make out, as said on her site-love.] I’ve recently become a fan of Angela Kohler, who is basically a mastermind visual artist. She’s a photographer who creates A M A Z I N G images, some for Toyota, Amazon, Capitol Records, and Verizon [to name a few].
Obviously these two lovely ladies are basically pros at Photoshop, so they teamed up to host photoshop classes all over!
They created Blogshop, a Photoshop class for bloggers.
In this class, they teach the basics along with some fun things that help to make individual blogs, well, individual!
Blogshop literally happens ALL over the world [NY, LA, Chicago, Sweden,Canada, Australia…] and for one of my Christmas gifts, I was given the opportunity to participate in the Chicago Blogshop and literally could NOT be more excited!!!!
Through this class, I’ll going more knowledge about photoshop and how to make my blog better, more exciting-and overall more pretty with it! So over the next few days, stay tuned as I share my amazing experience with you all!

Until then though, waiting in the airport is ultra boring so I wanted to show some fur
