Tumblr_lbwr58anrq1qekzfyo1_400_large
broken birdie wing, can't quite seem to sing...

tasteless

sleeping on the moon and dreaming on the sun
hot cold
hot cold
I like the cold
the heat hurts my life
atoms and explosions
my brain and my heart
stay out of both and fall in the sewer's mouth
he thinks you taste good
but he spits out your soul

Ribs

cut through trees and ride through rocks;
and synchronize the universal sun down to my watch. <3

time for another random thought list

~ Miette snores. never knew I would actually think snoring could be cute.

~ I've decided that I'm going to keep the left side of my head shaved, long bangs, grow out the rest, and try to dread my hair again in the summer.

~ I wish women would respect themselves and their bodies. you don't have to be (half) naked to get attention.

~ I forgot how good of a show "my so called life" was.

~ I can't wait until spring has sprung. this weird weather is killing my allergies.

~ I can't wait to start my feather extension business (if you don't know, Google image search that shit).

~ meditation has been my savior.

~ ppl who don't forgive are weak minded individuals.

~ I still need to hear that new Radiohead.

~ getting drunk has become silly to me.

~ I need to start writing more.

~ I need to read one book at a time. I'm reading like four books right now.

~ I'm getting tattooed next week for the first time in a year.

~ I have mad gray hairs.

~ it's so weird to own my own car again. I hate driving, but need to me able to get around now that I have a child.

~ I adore early to mid 90s fashion. think The Craft, My So Called Life, Saved By the Bell, Punky Brewster.

two months





Yesterday marked two months old for Miette. I can't believe how fast two months came and went. In the past week she has started smiling socially. it's the prettiest smile you ever did see. she is also extremely vocal for her age. she's such a happy baby. Her baby hair has fallen out a lot, and I'm anxious to see what color it will grow in. my cousin Patrice had black hair when she was born, and when it grew back, it was red. It's so strange that I gave birth to a blond haired, blue eyed baby lol. At least she has my fat cheeks. hah. Her eyes have gotten bluer, so I'm pretty confident that they'll stay that way. she has long, beautiful eyelashes that curl, but they're bleach blond. as are her eyebrows. she is changing so much everyday. Tomorrow, I'm going to start giving her tummy time. I'll probably only start with about 5-10 minutes, because she doesn't really like to be on her tummy. she'll only lay on her tummy comfortably if she is exhausted after eating and laying on my chest. I can't wait for the day where she lets out a real belly laugh, however if things stay the way they are, the time will fly too quickly.
loving life nowadays. <3

new makeup portfolio

I'm in the midst of beginning a new makeup portfolio, and so far, so good.
i would eventually like to do dramatic high fashion photo shoots and fashion shows, so i'm working on really funky and colorful color schemes.
earlier in the week, i did 3 different color schemes on my girl see are bee.
they came out great.

here is the start:













and this is going to be the cover of my port:

Old broad

Today I turned twenty-seven.
the fact that I'm almost 30 is unfathomable!
but I'm extremely lucky.
I have the most amazing daughter and a beautiful boyfriend (inside and out) and wonderful friends and a beyond loving family. I've really learned to appreciate all that I have.
the boyf got me a hat, candy, wrote me a beautiful letter, and painted me the most breathtaking picture ever. I'll post it on here asap.
today is going to be a great day... no matter how old I feel.
truly blessed and couldn't ask for more.

a to b

In a few weeks I will be the (kind of) proud owner of a 2006 Honda Element.
the reason I am only kind of proud is because I find the Element quite on the ugly side. but I can't complain. I'm getting it for free, it drives well (even in snow), and it's great on gas.
So if you see me riding around in a spaceship, say what up.

Let us be lovers...

we'll marry our fortunes together.

Throw beez

I am thinking it's a sign
that the freckles in our eyes
are mirror images
and
when we kiss
they're perfectly aligned.

Words of wisdumb

The universe is a beautiful place. don't take life for granted. there is beauty in all things. the secret is knowing how to find it, but it's always there. always send out positive vibes and positive energy pray for negativity to reverse itself my experiences have made me one with myself and everyone else however it took awhile. be in the now and cherish every moment take advantage of the sun and don't sleep on the sky. love yourself and everything else will fall into place. <3
