Oh Joy!

Oh the joys and disappointments of life.

I want to start by saying how truly humbled and filled with joy I am by those that have encouraged me to keep writing: you are my heart!

Next, I want to unload some thoughts...every year for as long as I can remember, I have not had a Valentine. We used to get the cute little cut out cards with 'messaged hearts' to put in our Kleenex boxes in elementary school; candygrams in high school; singing grams in college, but I can honestly say I don't remember getting one from anyone special signifying my specialness in someone else's life. So this year, I asked my roommate to be my Valentine and we began to plan what we would do for the special day. Her flowers and candy came on Wednesday; my candied apple and chocolate covered fortune cookies came on V-Day, and we got all gussied up and went to lunch at a new place followed by froyo on Friday. Beyond our beautiful date I received various cards, candies, a cooked meal, fondue, 2 sets of flowers, several texts, and a very special phone call :) When my guy friend, that I secretly have a crush on, asked me how my holiday was, I could honestly answer that it was full of love and the absolute best one I had ever had! Those who wanted to be there, were there, and that made the difference.

The following day I ended up down in SD with my second love, mi hermana, and we went to Oceanside on the dock for dinner with a friend. Sunday continued in the same spirit: church (amazingly on time word), lunch at Phil's (best BBQ ever), shopping (spent less than $20), dinner back in LLU with good friends, and late night snacking. I woke up saying to myself, "Oh, what a night," though, it was really more like "What a weekend!" When I actually got out of bed, I had so much waiting for me: cleaning, organizing, and embarrassment as I relived and relayed the details of last night's events to my roommate. But, through it all I have learned to regret nothing, learn...and once learned, make a difference in someone else's 'aha' moment. Be blessed and productive today my loves!

I've been asked recently, "So, what exactly do you do?" Fashion stylists or style consultants can contribute to jobs that dress clients from H to T with items already in their closets to setting the theme and choosing the clothes for a show to personal shopping and thrifting for special events. Thus, the pictures I post are simply "looks" to help inspire and spark ideas to create your own style. With that being said I must now say that I am uber excited about the neons I have had the privilege of peeping recently that will grace our atmosphere SS2013! All I can think of is P-s-Y-c-H-eDelic! Enjoy :)
