Get Ready For It. I Came To Win.

Everyone, regardless of their musical preference, should listen to this song.  I've been listening to it all day, and pretty much sums up my feelings at the moment.

It's been a wonderful, crazy, emotional past couple of months for me.  I'm purging myself of all those feelings and negativity, and I'm leaving it in the past.  Everyone who contributed to those feelings, I'm also leaving in the past.  This is my moment.

“I wish today, it would rain all day.

Maybe that would kinda make the pain go away.

Trying to forgive you for abandoning me.

Praying but I think I’m still an Angel away.

I came to win To Fight.  To Conquer.  To Thrive.

I came to win.  To survive.  To Prosper.  To Rise.

To Fly.”

And that’s the last I’ll ever say about that.

F**king Major.

When I find something I love, I become obsessed with it.  I love hard.  It’s just who I am.  The interesting part is that this particular aspect of my personality translates to all aspects of my being, including my obsession with style and love of fashion.

I have just recently come across the brand Tateossian and I have to say, some of the items they carry are exactly my style.  Like the item pictured above.  At $425 and featuring stingray (OBSESSED) detail, this is something that I would absolutely love to own. 

Maybe when it goes on sale, perhaps?

Destination – Mazatlan, Mexico

mazatlan-picture-of-mexico-294 

Could you imagine waking up each morning here?  I may be biased, but I truly believe the beaches of Mexico and Central America are among the best in the world.  This is definitely on my “must visit” list. 

I feel so worldly.  It’s a beautiful feeling.

Stephane Pompougnac – Crave You

Why can’t you want me like the other boys do?

They stare at me, while I stare at you.

Why can’t I keep you safe as my own?

One moment I have you, the next you’re gone.

Behind steps on an empty stage,

That boy’s got my heart in a silver cage.

Why can’t you want me like the other boys do?

They stare at me, while I crave you.

Style Obsession – The PS11

PS11

The PS11 by Proenza Schouler has been on my mind every since seeing it on Mary Kate & Ashley Olson.  It’s the perfect size and comes in an array of finishes and colors. 

I’m actually just really proud of my guys.  I remember back in 20o4 when they were first starting out.  They were just so unpretentious, as opposed to the seasoned professionals.  I wish them nothing but the best.  And that they never lose that aspect of their combined fashion personality.

Keri Hilson – Let Me Down

Maybe you didn’t really need my lovin’,

Not the way I needed yours.

I was only trying to keep it open,

How you gonna slam the door?

Led me to believe we were together,

You were on a different plan.

Just when things were changing for the better,

You became a different man.

If I was you, I never would have left you in the cold in the first place.

And if I was you, I’d be really trying to make a U-turn on a one-way.

Said you let me down. Yeah you let me, let me, let me, let me down.

Musings…

san_francisco

I just got my plane ticket to San Francisco for NYE…I am quite excited to go home for a bit.  I’m even thinking about booking an additional trip to Los Angeles…

Los Angeles = Love.

I was driving from Bellevue to Seattle last night and I thought to myself…”If I could spit on this shit, I would.” 

I think that about sums it up.  Hope that doesn’t offend anyone.  Take care all.

What I’m Loving Right Now #2: Runaway by Kanye West

Everyone knows I love Kanye West.  From his music to his style, his strengths and his failures, I definitely think he’s someone to pay attention to, especially when he’s at his best.  We all make mistakes, he’s no exception.  But he’s taken responsibility for his actions and who am I to judge?

I swear I watched this mini-film a good 10x in a row.  I think it’s brilliant:

“You’re my devil, You’re my angel.

  You’re my heaven, You’re my hell.

  You’re my now, You’re my forever.

  You’re my freedom, You’re my jail.

  You’re my lies, You’re my truth.

  You’re my war, You’re my truce.

  You’re my questions, You’re my proof.

  You’re my stress and You’re my masseuse.

  Lost in this plastic life. 

  Let’s break out of this fake-ass party,

  Turn this into a classic night.

  If we die in each other’s arms,

  Still get laid in the afterlife.”
