yes, you read that correctly.


i've been thinking about doing a giveaway recently and then csn stores offered to sponsor a giveaway to one very lucky reader. csn stores has some amazing home goods ranging from a sleeper sofa, to bedroom goods, to purses, etc and one lucky reader will have the opportunity to spend $40 on anything they want.

personally, i would put my money towards one of the following:
it's spring time in nyc and i definitely need a new clutch!

totally gaudy. i love it. plus--i need more boxes to hold my jewelry!

the gardener in me neeeeeds both of these!

they have over 200 stores to choose something from. i literally got lost browsing through their products for about an hour thinking about all of the stuff that i want.

so, i bet you're wondering HOW you can win the $40 gift certificate!

this giveaway is open to US and canadian residents only (sorry international folks). please be aware that there might be some shipping charges or international fees (for canadian residents) for certain products.
giveaway will be open until june 1st, 11:59pm eastern time!

D's sis

dear P--

go guuurl, it's your birfday.
hold the wine, i know yo thirstayyyy
say ahhhhhh.
(yes, i just quoted trey songz)

today marks the birthday of someone especially dear to my heart. she's more than my sister--she's always been a friend, a mentor, someone to look up to and the most stylish person i know. we've always looked out for each other and she's the only person who really knows how to make me laugh when i need it. and that is why i needed to devote an entire blog post to her.

now, i tried to find some great pics of us and unfortunately came up short. could it be that we haven't taken any recent pics in the last year or so? i MUST remedy that.

in the meantime, enjoy this classic pic of me and P with the bouncers at B.o.B.'s on the LES:

happy birthday, sis!

xoxo, your crazy sister

D's friday favs

today's friday fav's is inspired by typography that i've seen around on some of my favorite blogs:

mainly because i've been practicing my own type. that's the art school nerd in me. i wanna have a type style...

and here we have it, the friday fill in the blank from the little things we do! it's my favorite thing about friday!!

1.  One fashion trend I really regret is      shrugs! idk what i was thinking when they were in style and why the hell i wore them...totally NOT for my body type   .

2.  The one thing that always completes any outfit is      massive amounts of accessories. from bracelets, to earrings, to rings and necklaces. i like to layer it all .

3.  I would describe my personal style as       hippie meets tom boy meets hipster (but not really) meets girly. i'm a mix of stuff   .

4.  My fashion muse is         gwen stefani--she's a mix of a lot of fashion styles and so much more    .

5.  If I could own one designer piece of clothing it would be     one?!? crap, i have no idea!   .

6.  I would love to raid the wardrobe of      nicole richie and gwen stefani and mary kate/ashley olson and...   .

7.  Today I am wearing      a strapless short dress, a cardigan and my (fake doc marten) pink boots...and some red lipstick! that i took off      .

have a wonderful, spectacular, lovely weekend!! so happy the weather is nicer in nyc.

D's makeup

lately, the idea of red lipstick has been...intriguing to me. i'm not a lipstick person AT ALL--i think my lips are way too big to have color on them. but red lips just look hot on people.

so while i was searching around in rite aid for the perfect stuff to use on my hair (all natural products, please!) i stopped infront of the lipsticks. with so many to choose from and no guarantee that i would use it al the time, i wondered if i should... i did...

i love photobooth!

i kinda like it.
venturing out the house like this might need to happen.

happy friday, all! 
i'll be sure to post up my friday favs soon.

Oh! Look! I totally forgot I snapped this pic last night of my brand spanking new HIGH boots!

Aren't they lovely???

The only problem might be that I'm too short for them. *sad face!*

I'm going to try and rock them but if it's not working, they'll have to go straight to another shoe size 8 person taller than 5'2. It would be a shame though.
Boots: old navy, $17 (on sale!!)

Saw this butterfly on the sidewalk while walking around. Too beautiful.

Butterflies are just so magical and spiritual to me.

Just a little hump day pick me up.

So...this is what happens when your boo takes over your laptop-you post from your phone.
And the pic is a perfect example of what happens when your dog decides that she needs attention in the middle of you doing artwork.
But this is why I have a blackberry-so that I can do things like check the internet and post blogs and gchat.
And this is why I have a dog--to make sure I don't spend too much time making artwork. D'oh. Did I just say that?
Happy hump day!

D's list

because my camera is not turning on and i wasn't able to snap ANY pics this weekend at laureluxe's bday party and now i'm all depressed because i had on the CUTESTTTTTT outfit and my girls were looking


yea, i'm annoyed. 

so i'm going to write a list...

  1. the above pic of calvin and hobbes is genius.
  2. my room is constantly and always a hot mess. i'll clean it and it'll remain that way for a day before it's just in total disarray again. i blame it on all of my art supplies and clothes.
  3. email is my favorite form of communication. i hate hate hate the phone.
  4. when i was younger, i had a book full of my favorite quotes. i worked really hard at finding some awesome quotes--mainly from books i read or sayings i heard. i have no idea where that book is but i wish i had it now.
  5. i created a book of my absolute favorite outfits and clothes items from magazines that i like to reference when i need outfit ideas. now i also use my tumblr for that.
  6. people think i have a "do-gooder" job...maybe i'm just too exhausted to realize that...
  7. sushi is one of my favorite meals.
  8. i let my dog sleep on the bed. that's because when she was around a year old, she broke her little leg and i felt terrible! she used to knock me in the head at night with her cast. i still laugh about that to this day.
  9. i think my nephew is the coolest kid in the planet. i don't care that for the longest time, i thought he hated me. he's just that cool.
  10. back in college i shocked my friends and family by helping to start a national sorority on the campus of our school. reflecting back on the experience, i think it was the only thing that connected me to school and i'm grateful for the wonderful women i met during the process.
  11. family and the boo are number one. ONE!
  12. i love lists.
grrrrrrrrrrrr to this rainy weather in ny. where's spring????

D's friday favs (yes, i know it's not friday)

i know...i'm's been a busy week.

here are my friday favs:
LOVE LOVE LOVE all of these outfits. def looking to recreate them.
i have a dress form at home that currently has some hats and a garland on it. umm, i MUST do this to it.
love this.

and! here is my fill in the blank from the little things we do...

1.  The very best thing about the summer is      picnics in central park with dunkin and my friends and some beer   .

2.  My first crush ever was      probably this boy in public school...but i can't remember his name. apparently he didn't leave too much of an impression on me .

3.  This may sound really silly but       i have ocd about my pens. i don't want other people using them!   .

4.  I squeeze my toothpaste from       the end. yea, idk   .

5.  My absolute favorite "comfort food" is     ice cream and beer!   .

6.  A random fact about me is that      i carry around a million books--my planner, 2 sketchbooks, a sudoku book, a small sketchbook, and whatever book i'm reading at the time   .

7.  The one piece of technology that truly makes my life better and I couldn't live without is      my cell phone! it's my life      .

happy weekend, everyone!

D's thoughts...

i have a confession to make.
 i have a huge celeb crush on both joshua jackson and matt damon.
ok, maybe it's really a celeb couple crush.

how cute are they!??!

i know the boo will have something to say about this post.
