I borrowed a few friends and dressed them up in my clothes and took them to the park for a photoshoot!
Pretty much everything you see will be listed on Etsy within the next couple weeks. (so stay tuned!!)

And the whole team:
My photographer on the far left, the two models in the middle and me on the far right! :D

You can see you entire album on the ape-z facebook page HERE!

Whadya think? Good? Bad? Lame? Awesome? Superific? Terrible?

Summer 2010 Week 1: Goal 1: COMPLETE

goal 1: Go for a bike ride.

I went for a bike ride this morning on my mom's purple Diamondback.
Poor decision - that seat is ridiculously uncomfortable. I honestly don't know why I didn't just ride my own bike.
And there I am in my biketastic gear.
I live super close to the bike path which follows along the Mohawk River. It's so nature-y, I kinda love it.
I <3 the Mohawk River.

The bike ride was pretty great, but I died at the end when I decided to speed up the super steep hill, and it took me forever to recover. But it was so worth it.

Question of the Day: Where's your favorite place to bike?

love and right triangles,

new shoes :)

One of the things I miss most about being home is Target. So of course in the four days I've been home, I've already been to Target three times.

Today, I could not resist buying these babies:
And naturally, once I brought them home, I couldn't take them off.

I ran around the house, baked snickerdoodles and went to the library in them :D
And another thing I missed about home is being able to take outfit pictures outside! In the glorious May weather!

And a variation:

Apologies for my non-pedicured toes ! :( I'm actually about to go do that right now..

Hope you guys are enjoying the beautiful weather!

Summer oh-ten: Week 1

[image from weheartit]
To kick it off, I'm making (surprise!) a list.

I have 13 weeks of summer.
Each week, I'm setting five goals.
For each goal, I'll blog about it.
They'll be goals that can be completed in a day or two, not like lose 20 pounds or something.

Week 1 goals:
1. Go for a bike ride.
2. Get a job.
3. Visit my high school.
4. Learn to cook a meal.
5. Complete a diy project.

love and right triangles,

my first craft fair!

I did my first craft fair yesterday in my home town and it was a lot of fun :)

The photos aren't great, but check it out:
I didn't expect to make a huge profit, but I did make more than what I paid for the booth, and lotsa people took business cards, and the exposure was great. Plus, I learned a lot!

And now, time to do some SERIOUS unpacking and organization!

love and right triangles,

things in my life that are rainbow

If you know me at all, you know I love color.

My life is pretty rainbowtastic.
These are my favorite [marker] pens. Go buy them at Target!
Anyway, I take lots of notes, draw lots of pictures and write lots of to-do lists with these.

I've fallen in love again with nail polish. Back in middle school, I'd paint my nails every night to match the outfit I planned to wear the next day. And then....I got a life. hahaha. But now I paint my nails maybe  two or three times a month.
RAINBOW NAILS are my favorite.
From 12:00, clockwise: Urban Outfitters Orange 2, UO Yellow 1, N.Y.C. Taxi Yellow Creme, UO Green 1, UO Green 3, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Blue Streak, N.Y.C. Skin Tight Denim Creme, N.Y.C. no-name (color 133A), L.A. Girl Bedazzle (from F21), Love My Nails Sweet Wine (dollar store), N.Y.C. no-name (color 135A)

Okay. Storytime.

Season 7 of Project Runway ended a couple weeks ago. At the beginning of the season, my friend Adam and I made a bet. We divided the contestants into two 'teams' and the person with the winner of Project Runway on their team won the bet. If he lost and I won, he would have to eat ten worms.

But if I lost.......
YEP. I had to wear a RAINBOW CLOWN WIG around campus for a whole day.

With the winner of The Epic Project Runway Season 8 Bet:
(and note the rainbow nails!)

Yes, I wore that to class, to breakfast, to dinner, to watch my friends play tennis, to sit on the grass outside...and it was a great day.

Question of the Day: Have you ever participated in a bet like that? Tell me stories!

love and right triangles,

Dress Your Best Week.....catchup.

When I heard about Dress Your Best week, I thought it was a great idea.
But being in the middle of finals period, I foresaw a lot of sweatpants and flip flops.

But in the end, I signed up anyway, thinking that it would motivate me to actually get dressed.

Unfortunately, that logic failed, and this is the best I can give you.

My five were:
1. waist
2. boobs
3. legs
4. hair
5. skin

WELL. Here's all five of those in the next two outfits.
I love the color green against my skin.
The belt accentuates my waist.
The v-neck works with my boobs. (maybe 'chest' is a more pleasant word, haha)

The length of the dress hits at exactly the right spot, and with heels, it does wonders for my legs.
Again with the v-neck for the boobular area.
OH and my hair was particularly edgy/voluminous this morning.

So there you have it! Dressing my best in two outfits, because I failed at dressing my best for a week. :D

Anyway, I loved the idea of Dress Your Best week and I can't wait to do it again, next time with five full outfits, and perhaps five different bodily features.

love and right triangles,

outfit 1: [dress, made by me] [cardigan, Target] [belt, H&M] [shoes, Rocket Dog]
outfit 2: [dress, made by me] [cardigan, thrifted] [heels, thrifted]
