D's on hiatus

The boo complained about my lack of posting lately and my response was, "shut it!" It seems like the holidays took over full force and left me tired, stuffed, and pleasantly surprised by my mounds of gifts. I gotta give it to my family this year-i received some pretty amazing gifts that I just wasn't expecting.

I thought about featuring some of the goodies but there are just too many to do that. Gifts ranged from a new watch (from the boo), rainboots, books ("the joy of cooking" being one of them), a new ipod touch (my mom is amazing), lots of new jewelry (necklaces, earrings, bracelets), a gift card, coffee, socks, and more stuff...I also received some amazing "merry christmas" messages...my friends are simply wonderful. I hope the ones who didn't hear from me understand...

But in short, this post is both an apology and an ending to this crazy 2010 year. I apologize for being a terrible, no good blogger and lacking in my posts (disclaimer-the boo will be upset to read that but it's my last chance to say things like that b/c in the new year I will no longer be down on myself. Booyah, 2011!). This post is also a goodbye to the year 2010, which brought forth some wonderful things and some truly terrible things. If people knew the actuality of what I've gone through in 2010, they...idk...maybe their heads would explode..?

Anyway, my goal for this upcoming year is to be positive so I am going to start signing off all blog posts w/ 3 things I'm grateful for (I have to thank the boo's mom for that idea):
1. My family. And by family that includes all friends that I think of as family. All of you rock.
2. My boo. Enough said (otherwise, you will all scream "barf!").
3. My accessory collection. Including my brand spanking new h&m ring that I snapped a pic of for this post. Holler.

That's all folks, till 2011. I'll be back after the new year w/ outfit posts, art, rings, crocheted creations and inspiration posts.

D's happy!


you might be wondering what's covering my awesome face....well:

MY BUSINESS CARDS CAME IN!
hooray happy dance time!
i've been waiting for them for a little bit and was super excited when i got the package in the mail on monday. i've been passing them out like crazy to people who have been asking me for a card...so if you want one too, you can email me here and i will send one along your way as well.

if i could explain to you how long this week has been, you probably would never believe me. it was probably as long as it has felt cold in nyc. did that sentence make sense? probably not...that's how long the week has been.

T.G.I.T.
(thank goodness it's thursday)

D's holiday inspiration

i've been too busy to blog due to:

hanging out too much
enjoying myself a little too much at holiday parties
making my christmas cards and gifts
getting no sleep

plus all of the regular things i do on a normal basis (work, life, etc.).

so here i am, trying to make it up to everyone by posting some christmas inspired pics:


i love the holidays.

D's outfit


outfit details: dress and hat - h&m, sweater - given to me, leggings - target, boots - swirl.com

this is what i wore yesterday. it's too cold in ny to wear anything but lots of layers.
the details in this dress are super cute. unfortunately, i got crappy pics of it.
i would like to experiment with this dress by matching it with some crazy colored tights and sweater...maybe next time?

t.g.i.h.d.
thank goodness it's HUMP day!

D's so-called life

spent my friday afternoon/evening/night watching old episodes of "my so-called life."





there's so much about this show that i L.O.V.E.

D's outfit

what are these rumors i am hearing about snow in nyc? really? clearly, from my outfit, i'm not ready. those are not snow boots that i am wearing:

outfit details: dress & boots - old navy, sweater - i can't remember where i got it, tights - h&m
i like the all gray look with the purple tights peeking out. i think i wear this dress a lot.

what did i do this weekend? i slept very little, made art, worked on my christmas gifts...now that it's colder outside, i am in full hibernation mode. this upcoming week/weekend is going to be hectic though so it's probably a good thing if i take it easy the next couple of days.

2 outfit posts in a row. i'm proud of myself.

D's outfit

i said more outfit posts, and dammit, you'll get more outfits.


outfit details: gray sweater - given to me, beige sweater - thrifted, tights - AA, boots - old navy

 today is a double sweater day because i'm literally just going from the house, to the car, to michael's, to the car, to the thrift store, to the car, to target, to the car, and back home. so why do i need a coat? really? a waste of my precious granny coat.
don't mind my hair in these pics. i just washed it so it hasn't dried to it's full (and i mean FULL) potential. i need to run out of the house soon so i didn't have time to wait and then snap a pic.

happy friday though! i'm excited for the weekend mainly because i would like to sleep. and draw. i'm really excited about my recent set of drawings. can't wait to throw them up on the blog.

oh--and i updated the shop with 2 new rings, and 2 rings are on sale. and i ordered business cards. i'm a big girl now!

D's inspiration

i saw "harry potter" over a week ago and i can't stop thinking about it. specifically, the story of the deathly hallows. it is probably one of the greatest animations ever done. i must say, i was seriously impressed.

and just a little movie review:
the movie was wonderful. absolutely amazing. you don't even need to have read the book to enjoy it. i'm actually thinking about going back to watch it again.
definitely deserves 2 thumbs up, 5 out of 5 stars, etc.

D's boots

I'm a fan of december.
I'm sure you're wondering why:
 I can't lie or hide my feelings about the holidays. I really love them. It's something about the crisp, cool weather and the decorations and christmas lights that just make me happy! I feel like january hits and suddenly we're smack into winter w/ no lights or cheer or anything. I kinda wish the holidays lasted
longer in the wintertime.

What am I not a fan of? 
This windy and rainy nyc weather we have today. It's one of those days I wish I was home and in my bed.

Luckily I have some new winter rain boots that are making my day. They're insulated, comfy, and rain proof. And they only cost me $13 at a consignment store. *happy dance*

D's outfit


i got some crummy pics of my thanksgiving outfit. eh. i think it's partially my fault since i wore all black. but still. these are pretty stinky.

i hope everyone had an amazing thanksgiving (and remembered some things to be thankful for!) as well as a great (black) friday. i'm not doing the whole black friday thing...i did it before and was miserable...so i figured i would spend my friday decorating, working on christmas gifts and sleeping. sleep is so nice.

outfit details: leggings - AA winter weight (i've been living in these), sweater dress, blazer and multistrand necklaces - h&m, shoes - payless, feather necklace - f21

D's thank you

 happy thanksgiving!

my family is pretty laid back when it comes to thanksgiving and the table setting, but if it were up to me, i would love to recreate this for our dinner:
*love*

anyway, there are always things to be thankful for. my list:

michael's arts and crafts store.
late night shawarma after a night of drinking.
lazy sundays.
my big curly hair.
big chunky jewelry.
dunkin "deathwish" donut.
and most of all: my family, boo and friends.

D's outfit

my hair has been super large and in charge lately and i kinda don't care to do anything about that. i keep going back and forth in my mind trying to decide if i want to chop it, or let it grow. decisions...

anyway, i feel like i should do more outfit posts. but i always forget to take pics.


outfit details: shirt and sweater - no idea where they're from b/c i got it them for free, jeggings and boots - h&m (i have an insane obsession with h&m lately), necklace - my sister thrifted it for me.

i'm looking forward to thanksgiving because it's the best time of the year for homemade food. but did you know that thanksgiving eve is one of the biggest drinking nights of the year? true fact. and i fully intend on having some adult beverages tonight.

happy thanksgiving eve!

i am looking forward to the weekend and REALLY looking forward to monday. at 6pm on monday, i will be on a break from work till the following monday at 11am. to make life even better, i already bought my ticket for "harry potter" so that's the first thing i will be doing when i get out of work on monday.

D's outfit

friday night, i went to a going away party for my cousin's boo and could not figure out what the hell to wear. finally i decided that i would go for comfort and heels.
 outfit details: blazer and multistrand necklace - h&m, white shirt - target, sweatpants and feather necklace - f21, shoes - payless, earring - my cousin made it

i was also going to wear my new coat but it was too damn hot in nyc:
coat - thrifted. and yes, that's a fur collar. holler.

i might be rocking the sweatpants and heels look all winter. it was awesome.
