My Girl Crush This Week

2 1/2 weeks on my diet

So I have been on my diet and exercise plan for 2 1/2 weeks now and I feel GREAT!!!!! I still haven't given up my Dr.Pepper habit (I drink one small glass a day) but I am doing better! My face has even cleared up a lot ... I think it's due to the exercise and all the TONS of H2O I drink!! I can almost fit into my size 2 jeans :)
I feel like a different person!   SO BE IT! JAR

A few things I am obsessed with this week

I LOVE this record it is just so peaceful and beautiful
and it is by Omar Rodriguez Lopez of The Mars Volta

I am also obsessed with a store called World Market
My friend Olive took me there yesterday and I fell in love with it!

I love their India section
it is just so AMAZING

I must go back when I have enough money to spend :)

But I LOVE anything exotic
from food to movies and nick knacks!
but it also reminds me of my FAVE movie The Darjeeling Limited

My new Favorite Book

Last night I hung out at Barnes and Nobles and stumbled upon a new street fashion book called FACEHUNTER. I couldn't resist so I purchased it and wow it's a really great look book about London, New York and so on street fashion. I go crazy because I collect these type of books. This book is from a blogger named Yvan Rodic who takes pics of people on the streets. So check his blog out @ Here are a couple of his pics from the book ... it really makes you wonder why people in the U.S dress so not cool! It makes me want to move to Paris or at least out of Texas :)

Here are a few of the fashion books I have collected over the years!

and some more...

WHAT I WORE TODAY is another of my faves!!

and they all reside right under the new vintage macrame owl I just purchased off of ETSY.COM

Yesterday while going through all my old Cd's

I found my AT THE DRIVE IN CD from 1998

I forgot how much I love this CD!!!

any ways..... you can check out my old blog about street fashion @

A look back at a year of my hair!

So today I decided to color and chop my long hair off that I have been growing out for 3 yrs now. It was so damaged from all the color I had put on my hair over this last year. I took this picture this morning right before going to my mom's salon too color it black and cut it off .... BYE BYE long red hair :(

and now this is what it looks like... I don't have any make-up on so it might look kinda strange! After my mom cut my hair I cried because it took me so long to grow my hair long but I kinda like it now!
Lets go on a picture journey on my hair over the past year it's kinda funny......October 2008 my hair was healthy and long and my natural color dark brown and then....I dyed it black December 2008 this pic was taken on my birthday January 5th 2009Then we get to march 2009 and I put some highlights in my hairNow it's July 2009 and my hair is getting blonder and I like this color the best!it's getting really blonde now but I still want it blonderNow it's the perfect color February 2010 platinum blonde but no I get this bright idea to dye my hair fire red....Then it faded to a light copper color and today I decide to get rid of it....and so here we are may 2010 and back to black and all my long hair GONE!!!I got the idea from looking at pictures of Lilly Allen the other night and so I did it!!!!
Well I hope you liked all the colors because I am sticking to black for a long time .... OR will I?
I guess time will tell ... SO BE IT! JAR
