blue crush

Summer weather = scorching = minimal layers + lots of jewelry. I thought I'd give a go at the monochromatic trend (even though it's so anti-my-personal-style AKA Lexy's only wearing one colour? Say whhaaat?). This look reminds me of oceans and adventures...

Summer is also a dandy excuse to pile on layers of jewelry. I used to be the BIGGEST jewelry junkie (aka the only way I could spice up my uniform!) (but then, of course, it would always "detract from the essence of the uniform" thus giving me a uniform infraction. Ah, back when I was in high school...) Except for the ring, all these pieces are from Nepal. The jewelry there was absolutely stunning. I love wearing exotic jewelry because it has a whole other story behind it. Plus, it gives me seem very wordly and jet-setting-y and all that eloquent jazz.

I'm really craving an adventure. Summer has been lazy. Lazy is good, but I'm also wanting a bit more. I seem to have forgotten how ridiculously boring my city is. "City" is a bit of a stretch, especially during the summer when all the university students are gone. My town? Large village? Sims creation? (I don't know what I'm saying. But hey! Sims is great! Especially when you set your house on fire and send the grim reaper to your virtual family's death. And, er, irrelevant/ creepy/ will stop going off topic.) Whatever the case, there is NOTHING to do around here. I've been bumming around. I was trying to identify this feeling. I figured it out: BOREDOM. This is a foreign feeling to me. Seriously. I always try to busy myself with a billion projects because 1) it's fun and 2) as I've discovered, boredom is no-fun-dom (that's possibly the lamest thing I've ever said. sorry.) I know it's summer and I should be living it up, but le siiiiigh. I'm just not feeling inspired. I want creative juice and fun projects, but I feel drained. And bored.

I need to get out of here. I need to feel inspired and zesty again. KAPOW! That's what I want! Can anyone give me an amennn? Or maybe just a great adventure idea? xxx

What do you do to cure boredom?

On a happier note, HAPPY CANADA'S DAY! I'm super proud to be Canadian. (Except for the fact that the entire Twitter universe seems to think that "Canadian" and "Justin Bieber" is synonymous. GET OVER IT. There's 33 000 000+ of us here too!) I hope you're all rockin' the reds and whites and watching oodles of fireworks. I know I'm not. But I am in spirit and that's what counts! BAM! (Check out my virtual firework? Yup.)

P.S. Shameless self-promotion (dude, you're on MY blog. you best be expecting it!): 1) Like me? Why not LIKE me? i.e. join me over at Facebook! and 2) Check out my new Etsy and maybe buy something or spread the word! Would mean a billion cazillion.

You really mastered the art of wearing monochromatic tones. You totally made it not boring:) The necklaces I am absolutely adoring!!

Ok, so I totally don't think of Justin Bieber when I think of Canada...I think of Degrassi..hehe. Is that worse? No, but seriously I used to be hooked on that show:)

Enjoy your weekend darling! Oh and I write songs when I am bored:) xx Marisa

I love the bright colours, your jewellery is amazing. Hmm as for boredom, attempt a DIY?

CDG said...

How do you master hair flipping pictures?! Teach me your ways please. I love all of this jewelry and the fact that it's from Nepal makes it even better. I'll take special things like this from different countries over designer jewels any day!
And dude, even the most creative people on the planet have to be bored sometimes. I say just embrace the boredom for now and relax. Read books, watch old films, observe and get inspired by everything. Then one day, BAM you'll be out of the boredom slump and have tons of inspiration for new projects/adventures etc.

I love those jewelry pieces from Nepal! Crazy because I actually have a friend who just came from a mission trip in Nepal. She has so many good stories to tell.

I am still in love with your energy in this blog. Keep it up, girl!
