The End Is Near

There are only three weeks left of first semester of foundation, I did it! I was organizing & taking pictures of my work the other day and thought I would share my stuff with all of you.
Welcome to Parsons

This was all 2D- two dimensional design class work.

Black Friday was a success , I got up at 4:30 am , left the house at 6:30 got all of my errands done by 9 am and by 2 pm I was officially able to say I got everyone on my list gifted and everything I needed and wanted.What were my amazing finds of the day? I scored two dolce & gabana bras for $25 each, & juicy couture pajama pants for $27! I also left with some kate spade tights, & a whole new wardrobe of beautiful underpinnings compliments of calvin klein.
Enjoy the weekend, I'm going to savor the last of the weekend I have left in Long Island..heading back to the city sunday can't wait. As much as I love coming home, I just don't feel the same I'm a city girl!

Feeling Thankful

Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm looking back at the last few months, which have been a complete whirlwind & I'm seeing how much has changed & how much I've grown.
Here's mine:
My life has blessed me with:
two amazing parents that support all my hopes & dreams
an amazing support system of friends & family. I love you all , you know who you are.
Opportunities at every angle
a very bright future awaiting me
a talent that is a gift

but above everything else I am extremely thankful that I can say that I love, love , love my life & wouldn't change a minute of it. all the bumps in the road are worth it.
What's on your list?

I wish you all a wonderful holiday! so are we are team pecan pie or pumpkin?

Running In Circles

I took a extended weekend, not on purpose it just happened. I got deathly ill while I was home and had to stay back an extra day. I'm going stir crazy. From  one minute running around doing a million things to laying in bed watching real housewives of beverly hills re-runs. And to top it all off my blackberry was acting funky so I wasn't even getting my emails! I thought I was going to lose my mind!
I'm back!

Going In Circles

Yesterday I needed a pick me- up, so I started to watercolor, just for an hour. This Is what I came up with. I'm in the process of pattern making designing for possible clothing tags/ bussiness cards for a lovely company called Pookie & Sebastian. Today I just got a email saying that they love these and are most likely going to play around with my designs and use them. Kinda cool. Beyond excited with the thought of having my artwork being used and put out there for the world ( all of Pookie's customers) to see. Follow your heart, I have ..and I don't regret a minute of it.

This Is A Gift, ....It Comes With A Price

No matter how stressed out or upset I get, I have to stand back and acknowledge how lucky I am to have the life I have, and for this gift , to be a artist. The ability to create and imagine is a gift, that comes with a price. I can't imagine doing anything else, I don't see it as ever having a choice. This has always been who I am and what I love.

What Is the one thing that gets you out of bed in the morning and puts you to sleep at night?

Sugar Rush

I have a new love interest in my's candy! I'm finally growing out of my no sugar tolerance, I'm still a Hypoglycemic but eating sugar has not been making me sick. I'm thrilled I've been craving candy since I was diagnosed over two years ago. I don't know if this is temporary or not, but for now I'm going to enjoy it. Candy, I have missed you! 
Some of my favorites:

Swedish Fish- Only The Red Kind

                                                  And Gummi Bears! My friend Maddie is always annoyed by my chewing when I eat gummi bears, but hey I can't help it they stick to my teeth!

What is your favorite Candy ?

Say it will be alright , And I shall believe

not everything is gonna be the way You think it ought to be, It's been an exhausting and emotionally draining hell of a week. But, for one I'm thrilled to say its Friday,that means dressing up to go out to dinner tonight and hitting the vintage flea market tomorrow; and that I am lucky to be surrounded by amazingly supportive people that I can truly call my friends. My life has blessed me with so many things monetarily, opportunity wise, and with people that love me unconditionally for exactly who I am. My best friend is my go- to girl, I can call her anytime, with any crazy problem or situation and she knows just what to say to make me feel better. My parents have and continue to bend over backwards for me. Everything is going to be alright, I shall believe. Sometimes bad situations bring out the best and worst in people...every one's true colors show through. I have my eye on the prize, no matter how tough it gets I must keep calm and carry on.
