So Grateful For The Kreativ Blogger Nomination!

Hurray, I’ve been nominated for my second award, the first was for Versatile Blogger and now Kreativ Blogger!

I’d like to thank Modgam, whose blog I enjoy immensely, very much for the nomination, although all I want to do after reading it is shop for the unique pieces she posts. Check out her site, it will definitely make you smile;)

In order to officially accept this Kreativ Blogger award, the 4 requirements are the following:

  1. Thank and link back to the person who nominated me
  2. Answer the 7 questions
  3. Share 7 random facts/thoughts about myself
  4. Nominate 7 worthy blogs for the Kreative Blogger Award

Here are the 7 questions:

1. What’s your favorite song? I have many favourites, at the moment ‘old school’ Michael Jackson is in heavy rotation. Forever Came A Day, by Jackson 5, has been playing quite a bit on my iPod

2. What’s your favorite dessert? Red velvet cupcakes from Auntie Em’s in Eagle Rock… crazy, yummy goodness!

3. What do you do when you are upset? I usually get very quiet to avoid saying something I may regret, and once I’m ready to talk, I have a few in my close circle happy to listen… I don’t allow things to fester, the toxins emanated into the body are brutal!

4. Which is your favorite pet? Cats, dogs, horses, pigs, chickens… you name it, I love them all! I grew up with dogs, and presently have two adorable cats who think they are humans, Miles- 7 & Hannah- 5. I actually met someone who owns a pet pig, which is very similar to a dog, so affectionate and friendly… my point? Think twice the next time you eat porky and someday you may learn about a new addition to my entourage of pets, lol

5. Which do you prefer Black or White? This one is tough, I appreciate both… white makes me feel super chic, while black makes me feel New York cool

6. What is your biggest fear? I am fearless, not even 10% of what people fear ever comes to pass

7. What is your attitude mostly? By and large I am very peaceful, positive and laid back… I’m so blessed it would be a shame to be otherwise;)

Seven Random Facts/Thoughts About Myself:

1. I am privileged to serve & sing on the praise and worship team at, In His Presence, the most incredible church in Southern California

2. I have been a vegetarian for years, however, I don’t proselytize about it… some vegetarians are horrid meal time companions, not me

3. I love water! It is seriously my favourite beverage, I can drink it all day long

4. Photography makes me smile

5. I often day dream

6. I find the differences between men and women fascinating & beautiful

7. I have learned the most valuable knowledge from those I least expect

Marc Jacobs Fall 2012 Collection, Not For Me, But Inspired Just The Same

Marc Jacobs has always been one of my favourite designers, and not because his designs are so stunning, I drift off into a state of utter euphoria with each collection.  To the contrary, his silhouettes are not always the most flattering, however, I appreciate the fact he consistently thinks outside the box.  His aesthetic is whimsical and often unpredictable, most importantly it is his.  I feel inspired every season with Marc Jacobs’ collections, as I watch his designs parade down the runway.  As one who works in a creative industry, I understand the challenge of remaining inspired on a continual basis.  Without inspiration, the art begins to suffer.

Whether or not I find appeal in a particular collection, the fact Marc Jacobs seems to find ways of gleaning inspiration season after season, is impressive.  The Fall 2012 Marc Jacobs Collection is interesting indeed.  I didn’t find anything remotely attractive about many of the silhouettes.  In fact, most of them seemed to add 20 pounds to each model, which may be acceptable on a size zero frame, but obviously not the average consumer.  Of course, we must keep in mind, the runway is a stage where many a theatrical production is birthed.  The more I examine the Marc Jacobs Fall 2012 Collection,  the more I realize how imperative it is to think outside the box, like the designer himself seems to do habitually.  Several of the pieces would be a welcome addition to the wardrobes of many apart, from one another.

Here are a few pieces from Marc Jacobs Fall 2012:
