Sidewalk Art

These amazing pieces were made by local school children and line the sidewalk by one of my favorite shopping locations in St. Louis. They also made a bench (pictured above) out of all the decorated tiles. Pictured below is my new pair of sandals, I love the beads on this shoe!

Is it proper for one to jingle?

Loving these new sandals I picked up while thrifting. They jingle with every step I take and I've been wearing them a lot lately, they go with everything! :)

New Sunglasses.

Finally received these two new pairs of sunglasses in the mail the other day! I've been looking at many different styles of sunglasses lately and I came across these two pairs on eBay and now there on my face!

I've currently run out of room to put my sunglasses so I started hanging them from various items around my dresser, as well as putting a few pairs I don't wear too often in old shoe boxes. By the way, notice any familiar photos in the background?

A walk in the park.

I've been meaning to go on a decent hike/walk in the park lately before school starts. So last week when the weather was perfect, me, my friend, and her dog all went on a walk and I took some pictures along the way! We found a lot of great spots.

Summer Mood

Summers just about over sadly but I am so excited for fall to come! I love seeing the leaves change colors and a nice cool breeze isn't too bad either. :)

Summer 2011 Playlist

Summer's almost over for me. School starts in about 2-3 weeks and I have been nonstop shopping for it, almost done! So here I made a little playlist of what I loved listening to this summer! :)

Tame Impala.
Haven't listened to any of their old songs yet but their new cd, InnerSpeaker was very good! My favorite songs were Lucidity and Desire Be Desire Go.

Tame Impala - Lucidity

Tame Impala - Desire Be Desire Go

Death From Above 1979.
Started listening to this band this summer as well as Tame Impala. Very glad I found this band! I love every song I came across and this weekend I got all their albums. :)

Death From Above 1979 - Black History Month

The Mars Volta.
Heard them in a movie and read about them on some random website. Fell in love! There is some really awesome guitar playing in these songs.

The Mars Volta - Goliath

The Mars Volta - Cotopaxi

These bands along with a huge number (about 2000+ songs!!!) of songs from random Indie/Rock Playlists have been perfect songs to listen to this summer. Heres a little lists of some new artist I've recently discovered...

Air Drops. "JEJUNE".

The Belligerents. "These Hands."

The Bird Day. "Gonna Beg You" is such a great driving song, its so upbeat and gives out a really happy feeling when I hear it.

Big Spider's Back. "Perfect Machine".

Blood Diamonds. "Grins" is a very beautiful and peaceful song to listen to. I really liked listening to it by the pool.

The Moondoggies. "Undertaker" I've probably already posted about this song, its for sure a favorite. It always calms me down.

...and I found so many great songs that I hadn't heard by Animal Collective, The Books, Black Moth Super Rainbow, and Sigur Ros. This summer was certainly one for finding great new music!

New Sketch Design!

Between going to school, working, and just living life, this belt buckle sketch has taken me about 1-2 months to finish! But now all the main parts of it are complete and I am very excited to show it. I'm planning on sending these sketches to, so wish me luck! Who knows what could happen?

Now that I look at this sketch on here there are probably a few more things I'm going to do to it, just a few little tweaks here and there. It can definitely be improved, I think!
