Hi there. So, it's been about 4 months since I last posted, even though I had previously promised to start posting on my blog more(ha! That worked out). I had good reasons though, I wasn't just being lazy. I started a new job working for Clinique in January, as well as a new gig teaching dance classes to small children, so I haven't had a lot of free time as of late. Furthermore, my work dress code requires me to wear all black. This was originally supposed to be a blog about my own personal style, and the restrictive nature of my work wardrobe doesn't really allow me to do that.

I definitely want to start blogging more because I really do enjoy it(even if no one actually reads this thing), so I'll try and find more time for it. Though some of my posts will be in the same vein as my old ones, this blog will probably be heading in a new direction. It may not seem like it, but there is a lot of work that goes into making an outfit post, and I just don't want to work that hard on a hobby that's supposed to be semi-relaxing. That's not to say I might not go back to them eventually, but at this point they'll be on the backburner, and the main content of the blog will become a bit more random.

And with that, I leave you with this adorable picture of a panda photographer. Enjoy.

I love pandas

Music Monday/So let's set the world on fire

Come my tan-faced children,

Follow well in order, get your weapons ready,
Have you your pistols? have you your sharp-edged axes?
Pioneers! O pioneers!

For we cannot tarry here,
We must march my darlings, we must bear the brunt of danger,
We the youthful sinewy races, all the rest on us depend,
Pioneers! O pioneers!

O you youths, Western youths,
So impatient, full of action, full of manly pride and friendship,
Plain I see you Western youths, see you tramping with the foremost,
Pioneers! O pioneers!

Have the elder races halted?
Do they droop and end their lesson, wearied over there beyond the seas?
We take up the task eternal, and the burden and the lesson,
Pioneers! O pioneers!

All the past we leave behind,
We debouch upon a newer mightier world, varied world,
Fresh and strong the world we seize, world of labor and the march,
Pioneers! O pioneers!
We detachments steady throwing,
Down the edges, through the passes, up the mountains steep,
Conquering, holding, daring, venturing as we go the unknown ways,
Pioneers! O pioneers!
O you daughters of the West!
O you young and elder daughters! O you mothers and you wives!
Never must you be divided, in our ranks you move united,
Pioneers! O pioneers!

Till with sound of trumpet,
Far, far off the daybreak call—hark! how loud and clear I hear it wind,
Swift! to the head of the army!--swift! spring to your places,
Pioneers! O pioneers!


Fun.- We are Young

Music Monday/It's hard to dance with the devil on your back

Music Monday is back! See, I really am making a conscious effort to stop neglecting my blog. I heard this weeks song on the radio for the first time a couple of weeks ago, and I'm not really sure why, but I've been a little obsessed with it. Mayhaps, the reason is because it's a damn good song.

Florence+The Machine- Shake it out

California Winter

Oh hey! Hello there. How's it hanging blogoshpere? Long time, no see. Due to a combination of me being very busy at a new job, holiday madness, my penchant for extreme laziness, and a very spotty internet connection(I'm looking at you Verizon), it has been quite some time since I last posted. But fear not, dear readers. I've made a resolution to stop ignoring my blog and start communicating more, so that we may rekindle our relationship. We'll see how it goes.

So my sister and I decided to go to Santa Barbara a few days ago for some shopping fun. I thought I would share some pictures from our day with you. Be jealous of our gorgeous California weather(71 degrees in the middle of winter? Hell ya.)!

This guy was totally dancing on his roller a boss.

I kept squinting, so my sister made me wear her sunglasses.

So there you have it. The first of(hopefully) many more blog posts to come in 2012. Have a good one people!
