My ♥

(Our 1st Photobooth Session)

I never posted any pictures of Mr. xx  before, to respect his anonymity, but i have convinced him to cave... Muhahaha! So, at long last... the reveal of Mr. xx...

Ladies & Gentlemen,
The Amazing, Chae
 (NOT Chai or Chee or Shay but Chae,  pronounced like Che Guevara
aka 'The Amazing Chae' to his buddies, true story)
(Dawwwwww~ Ain't he cute?)

i have to sing goofy, i have to sing stupid...

Finally got to see 'Blue Valentine' last night. It was super good, but super sad... still, i highly recommend watching it. Even just the images/posters of the movie were well done.

Plus, Michelle Williams stars in it... Who, i have to admit, i'm growing more and more fond of. <3

Dubstep Mixtape

Last night... had a delicious dinner with Mr.xx and friends, then returned to the home to listen to some tunes with some vino~ Love when that happens. Whenever we get together we share what we've been listening to. Also, discussed the possibility of going to Coachella... Hmmm. Sooo many good bands. Decisions, decisions.
Anyway... My buddy, Marcos hooked me up with this UKF Dubstep 2010 mix and i am obsessed. This was my contribution to the music discussion. Here are some of the faves. If you dig it... i highly recommend having a listen to the whole album. Not for the faint of heart.... Enjoy~!

Here's a bonus dubstep track that i personally love not by UKF:

Came across this image awhile back and re-discovered while organizing my "Art Wishlist" folder. I am obsessed with this particular one... I realllllly want a print but think they're sold out (Booooo~!)
But the image is how i imagine my fiance looked when getting childhood haircuts... Ha. <3
(i have a theory that most asians had to rock this look at one point in their lives... By parental force no less)

Home is where the Heart is...

(Our current home)

House hunting always leaves me excited and nostalgic all at once. Been house hunting with the fiance for the past few months and after lots of searching/applying... We found the perfect place for the next chapter in our lives. Will definitely be doing a post of the new home but for now... i just wanted to enjoy and pay tribute to the cozy lil 1900's (Haunted) home that i spent such a short time living in.
(*Insert pouring of the 40 oz for the Home-y )
Bye Home... You will be missed.

Instant Photography

With all the instant photo camera options out there, i decided to post about the ones that i am mulling over purchasing...
It all started with the iPhone app, 'Polarize'. It basically takes any of your iPhone photos and makes them... you guessed it...  polaroid photo-esque.

Then... Pow! Instant polaroid photo:

Cooking dinner w/ the fiance (he is seriously thee most super-mega-radical man whoever lived ♥)... and reading my current book (Women - Bukowski)... and finally relaxing to some 'Dexter' episodes (if you haven't seen this show i strongly recommend you do) i was pleased to flip through the new 'Early Spring- UO catalog! Whee~! i say 'Whee~!' because there are always some pieces that i absolutely am smitten over...  as well as some old picks that i missed somehow...

Here are my 'Early Spring- UO' Picks:

This was released by Beach House with this cute lil message:
"Happy Holidays, we wrote a song for you, thanks for the great year!
Beach House"

(I adore them. Victoria Legrand is a style icon and a half!)

Turn off the Bright Lights...

Taking down ze lights = Boooooo. 

Apologies for the lack of posts lately... It's been so crazy busy its been downright mental. At least i seem to be keeping 1 of my resolutions of staying productive...
Also, keeping with the resolution of 'No purchasing T-shirts in 2011' .. Ordered 2 dresses (gasp!) Pretty geeked over 'em.
Are you sticking to your resolutions so far? Its only the 4th day of the new year... so, i certainly hope so... Ha. <3
