I awoke this morning weeping for the families in Connecticut who are living through the terrible tragedy of losing their children and their loved ones. I have often thought that if my baby was taken from me, life would begin to drain from my soul and I would cease to exist. But, I believe that sorrow passes into understanding and hopefully one is filled with a sense of purpose again where emptiness cannot be filled. For those families and friends, today is about the moments that pass so painfully slow; it’s about surviving the hurt of now. I am taking in the deepest breath for you all and holding onto the hope that your sorrowful consumption will pass through the tunnel to light because you are loved and have tremendous purpose. I hope that the nation and the world will join me in crying with you; embracing you in prayer.

Visions of skateboards are dancing in my head. Check out these Free People limited edition prints from Titan Boards! I almost want to take up the sport... almost. Maybe I'll just hang this deck on my wall instead of popping an Ollie!
What do you get when you combine nude lips, a pumped up ponytail, a stuffed size "H" bra and two stuffed booty pads? Kardashian fun! And what happens when you combine that with me, a special guest star and Mezcalaria Oaxaca? Kamie Kardashian's Happy Haunt featuring Lil Star, margaritas and Days of the Dead dancers! Are you keeping up?
Fourteen years ago, a star was born. This stage of adolescence can often seem like you are on an interstellar path. Try to remember that sometimes just a twinkle and sometimes enough to blind, when you are star you always shine. You may find yourself looking for a mirror in your friends but what is reflected is not the truth. They can only tell you what they need you to be, not who you really are. It’s your time to radiate; leave others in your shadow or let them bask in your rays. Born fourteen years ago a spark, you grew to a glimmer, you suffer loneliness in your brilliance and remain a flicker until one day you gleam.
For today's styling job I had to set up a staging area in a stadium room. It was a lifestyle shoot but I always like to be prepared with lots of brushes, several color and cover up choices and sanitary items. I even brought my new bangs. It was much easier styling with my hair out of my eyes so, "whack!" I chopped my long front locks into sassy side swept gyaru style bangs!
I had a little visitor a week or so ago. Yuki is my nephew; a darling little deer chihuahua. He was very curious about my new closet-slash-guest room. It's the perfect staging area for prepping for photo shoots. This particular day was more about prepping for, well, me! I was feeling especially cat-like that Saturday because of my super-sexy blue leopard zip-up dress from BB Dakota. This dress is from a couple of seasons ago but, it was sitting in my closet with the tags on! Shhh. Yuki was such a big help with choosing my accessories: Tarina Tarintino bracelet and necklace with Richard Tyler satin pumps. (I always love a visitors opinion.) Happy dressing until next time!
