Bieber Fever Doesn't Discrimate

My Introduction to Television lecturer has total Justin Bieber hair. It is long with the swooshy bangs and everything. Seriously, it's Justin Bieber hair.

BUT! JUSTIN BIEBER GOT HIS HAIR CUT YESTERDAY! This was huge news on all of the celebrity gossip sites. I found out through a text message from my mom though that read, "OMG The Biebs got a haircut!" I kid you not.

So, when I went to lecture this morning, I was planning on laughing to myself about my teacher's outdated Bieber 'do, only to find that he too had gotten a haircut. AND IT IS EXACTLY LIKE JUSTIN BIEBER'S NEW HAIRCUT. Minus all this hair product happening below.


Here's my theory: When I was a little girl, I was seriously obsessed with Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, and whenever they got their hair cut, I would get my hair cut exactly the same way. I'm pretty sure my Introduction to Television lecturer at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is doing the same thing but with Justin Bieber. How could this not be the case? IT IS WAY TOO MUCH OF A COINCIDENCE, AND I AM ECSTATIC.

Valentine Package

I came back to my apartment last Thursday to find this glorious package waiting for me in front of my door. I was thrilled to say the least, because A. it was a package FOR ME! and B. it was for Valentine's Day! I ripped it open immediately even though it explicitly says to not open it until the 14th. Puh-lease, Mother. Yeah right. Here's the package opening experience:

(I Clone Stamped both addresses off this package in case any of you are creepers)

This card is me. Heart purse AND heart sunglasses?! This. Is. Me.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Valentine's Day is my favorite. Any holiday that revolves around hearts, red, pink, sparkles, candy, and love is a-ok in my book. Actually it's more than that; it's more like an obsession.

Let's just say that my dishes are sparkly and heart-shaped, a giant red heart pillow resides on my bed at home, I have been carrying a red heart purse for approximately four years, and lots of my jewelry is heart shaped. Also, I gasp every time the Macy's Valentine's Day commercial comes on. I'm probably missing things too. You, my reader, are probably thinking about how terribly tacky this all sounds, but I promise you, I do my hearts, and love of hearts, with taste.

This morning I took a little time to decorate my apartment for this glorious day. It turned out so cute, and I have no plans on taking these decorations down anytime soon.

P.S.- I thought of something else I own that's heart-shaped: sunglasses! I wore them today. Once again received looks, once again don't care.

Let Them Eat Cake!

Remember when Marie Antoinette, directed by Sofia Coppola, came out five years ago, and everybody, especially in the fashion world, went crazy? I do, because I still am going crazy. I cannot get over this movie. I talk about it all the time, think about it all the time, and even wrote a College Fashionista article that was Marie Antoinette themed.

The night I found out I was having a snow day the next day (which was a week ago already! It would be super helpful if I could have another snow day this week, please.), I not only stopped everything I was doing to paint my nails, but I popped in this movie and watched it late into the night. The end was a real downer, but the rest of the film still has me dreaming of pastels, sparkles, feathers, and decadent desserts.






I must be off now- need to install a ship into my bouffant!

P.S.- Did you know Marie Antoinette actually never said, "Let them eat cake!" ? I think I'll still eat cake anyway though.

My Nails at the Moment

I love doing my nails. When they're not done, I feel boring and plain, and when they're chipped, I am convinced I look like a hillbilly.

Last night when I found out there was going to be a snow day today, I dropped everything I was doing and did my nails. They are fab.

On the majority of my fingers is Sally Hansen "Virtual Violet" and on the specially chosen fingers (?) is OPI "La Paz-Itively Hot" and Covergirl "Disco Dazzle."

Best Friends and the Aftermath of the Best Concert


I made this fun project for an introductory fabric embellishment class at UW-Madison. The assignment was to take a piece of fabric that is as long as I am tall and completely cover it with one element of embellishment as densely as possible.

My fabric is pink tulle that I scrunched together to add more texture and thickness, and my embellishment is pink pipecleaners that I pierced through the fabric, then curled around my finger.

This is probably one of my favorite projects I have ever made, but it was a beast to complete. It took a lot more pipecleaners and time than I could have ever anticipated.

These curly-q's now reside on the teeny wall in my tiny Madison room between the closet and the door to the kitchen (don't be too jealous of my groovy, mustard yellow refrigerator).
