Your Imagination Is Key

Christian LaCroix

Spring 2008

"You already have everything you could ever need or want in this life. Everything that you see you can create. So use your mind to create new thoughts, dream bigger dreams, reach heights that no one else never has before you, and if you're real good, no one will after you."---truthis Do you, and while you're doing you, make sure you wind up being your own competition.

I had a friend of mine ask me, "Why do I think so out of the box?" How do I come up with some of my ideals? I just gave a laugh and said "I've been doing it so long, I guess it just comes from that part of me that was about 5 years old, that recognized that I was an individual connected to something bigger than me."

I was really forced to stop and think about her question when I had a few moments alone. It was right at that moment my daughter kept bugging me about watching this documentary about the making of Sean Comb's latest clothing line. I finished up what I was doing and gave her my undivided attention for the next 90 minutes...that's how my miracle was experienced yesterday. I found a whole new level of respect for Sean Combs (see article in this blog) and I was able to reconcile that question of "Why I think so out of the box." Again, I say ALL THE TIME, 24/7 MY LIFE IS FULL OF MIRACLES.

Spring 2008

Your imagination is the key to everything. See these to-die-for dresses by Christian Lacroix and Alberta Ferretti? I mean these are some drop-dead-gorgeous dresses! No doubt about that. There are a couple of ways I can go about it. I can inquire at the respective designers and if I like the price I could just go ahead and buy them. Or if their price is too high for me I could always go to someone and have a dress made inspired by these photographs. (Not expensive at all if you know what you're doing) Or if I feel like it I can just make the dresses my self. Being the determined being that I am, I know that I'll be either I'll be wearing Christian Lacroix and Alberta Ferretti this summer or I'll be wearing something inspired by them.

What's it worth to you? That's the question you've got to ask yourself not just with fashion with EVERYTHING. Are my interest geared toward solving the world's aids problem or are they more inclined towards becoming a business exec? Because what you want, wants you equally as strong. Study the best of the best in your particular area. Then be the best in your particular area. You will begin to see opportunities and inspiration coming to you from all different directions. If it is really what you want to do, then run towards it so it can start to show up in your life and when the two of you get together I want you to obliterate the finish line. Go ahead and get your dream! I want nothing more than to see you truly happy, loving what you do, not for the money, but for the sheer enjoyment of it. Believe me when I tell you if you truly love what you are doing the money will show up! Your dream is waiting for you.

Here Comes The Bride

Apparently I missed the boat on this one...

I'm not one for celebrity gossip but I heard today that as of late, Gisele has been sporting a nice ring on her left ring finger. Reports also claim that the well known Victorias Secret model has been running around telling people "He got it from Tiffany's!" {what about Bridget} B&B are set to marry later on this year in a private ceremony. Considering Bundchen's list of modeling credits, who do you think she will choose her dress from? A source said: "...She's looking at designs by Chanel and Dior." I can't wait to see it...

Looks like it's going to be one heck of a year for Gisele considering that she might star in the latest Austin Powers movie. {I know you're wondering how this is possible} She has Taxi and The Devil Wears Prada to her acting credits.

Pretty Little Light

This has nothing to do with fashion, but it's pretty, so I thought I'd show it to you anyway! The name of is this beautiful ambient lamp is “O”. Sounds like the title of a mildly erotic novel… At any rate, the lamp features illuminated symbols and motion that’s likely more interesting than what’s at the side of your bed right now.
Yanko Design notes, “‘O’ the spherical ambient lamp is made out of composite materials and consists of elegant art nouveau symbols illuminated at varying intensities by rotating a ring. The lamp can be used as is to breath of refinement in your home but the same technology can be applied to larger installations for advertising. This lamp was designed by Enache Florin.”

WTF!?!?! Is Up With This Cat

ARRRGGGGHHHH!!! I really can't take it anymore! I have been plagued by this cat since high school. I have three best friends clinically, OCD type obsessed with Hello Kitty. Everywhere I go in their rooms/ houses I see piles of Hello Kitty. It's a bit scary to think about it. Fully functional grown women obsessed with a white cat with a yellow nose that wears a pink bow and dress. I don't even think I have heard that cat talk on it's TV show for crying out loud {ok, maybe I didn't want to hear it speak}. So you all don't think that I have finally lost it, I am not the only one that feels this way. At any rate, I would like to dedicate this blog to my friends that are obsessed with this horrible pigment of my nightmares...
