the dead

When I was growing up, I always hated the color orange. I don’t know if it was because it reminded me of traffic cones or what– but that revulsion has slowly turned into infatuation, and I blame none other than Hermès. Thankfully, this alteration has come just at the right time- Pantone announced Tangerine Orange (or as I like to call it,  Hermès Orange) as the official color of 2012! And I plan on taking full advantage…

On a sidenote, I am a huge fan of James Joyce, particularly his work “The Dead” from Dubliners. I am about to embark upon reading “The Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man for class and I hope it is as good. I think this quote from “The Dead” is brilliant. If there is one thing I have learned over the years, it is that life must be lived with passion and zest to be worthwhile. No more complacency.

One by one they were all becoming shades. Better pass boldly into that other world, in the full glory of some passion, than fade and wither dismally with age.

-James Joyce, Dubliners


gold sequins

Getting ready to go out for dinner and drinks with with my friend Eyhdon. Somehow it feels like a Friday even though it’s just a Tuesday, so I am going to treat it as though it is! The sequin cardigan will be vastly out of place at the a sports bar– but in my opinion, standing out is never a bad thing. And I can never resist anything with sequins. That, and red nail polish always seem to brighten up my day.

I just turned so 21– okay, in September– so I’m relatively new to the whole bar scene and never know what to order so I usually stick with a boring rum & coke… any suggestions for an interesting drink to order?
