So I finally did it.
I made a new blog!
I loved this blog, The Laugh Slut provided me a year of fashion, friends, memories and more fashion and I loved it!
But now I think I've outgrown this blog, sadly, but fear not ol' pals!
I'm still going to be around! Just pop on over
to YOUNG AND SEAMLESS to catch me in all my awkwardness from here on out.
Oh I really hope you will, I've had such an amazing ride with you!
Love you alll! Thank you for all your support and love.

My life has changed drastically and, in honor of this, I want to start a BRAND NEW BLOG.

Friday, June 10, 2011


This is going to be the longest, most stressful, ridiculous weekend of my life. 4 day, 3 books, 1 5-pg paper, furniture diy, 1 move-in,1 2-pg proposal, a million designer outreach, and more! Ohhh boy. You know that saying, "don't stretch yourself too thin?" TOO LATE FOR THAT NOW!
The sun is making me oh so giddy! It's nice for CA to finally ditch the dreary clouds and rain and embrace the sunshine. Each day has been extremely busy and I'm getting into the swing of it. It's going to take some time but I can dig.
Yesterday I did the unthinkable. I went into Home Depot, alone, and stayed there for almost 2 hours. WTF RIGHT? I needed to pick up paint and paint supplies to DIY the old bed frame I'm using in my apartment. I spend forever turning around, looking from paint samples to paint samples, trying to figure out sponge vs. paintbrush vs. roller, but it was all worth it! I picked out a beautiful color by Martha Stewart called "Sea Glass," it's a nice sea foam. I can't wait to show you the final look and feel of my apartment room! Now it's time to get back to painting! Then off to do some thrifting for more furniture and hopefully I'll get through two of my books tonight!
I went for a little chill, down-with-the-flow kind of feel with my outfit. This is basically going to be my summertime uniform; high waisted cutoffs and a tee. It's comfy, relaxed, and no fuss. My kind of an outfit.

Summer happened and attacked so fast, I can hardly keep up with this busy as a honey bee life when I'm so accustomed to the lazy dazy hazy feel of the summer sun. I wake up around 8 AM and start my ridiculous amount of reading (300+ pages per night, sigh) for my social history class which I'm actually loving! THEN I have to get my little booty over to Berkeley and leave around dinner time amidst the horrific rush hour traffic. It doesn't sound like much, but it's definitely a hand full. Ahhh, I need to start updating more so I can cut down on my writing and post more pictures, cause, let's face it, no one likes a text heavy post!
Good news! Actually awesomely fantastic news! You're looking at the new designer outreach/boutique management/social media & PR intern at Member of Melange and I seriously could not be more excited! Not only is this my first ever internship but it incorporates basically every aspect of everything I like! My first fashion team meeting is tonight and I am in a blunder of nervousness/happiness, I can't wait to get deep into it and get started! I have one more internship interview on Friday, I'm keeping my fingers crossed and wishing upon 11:11!
I've been rather productive lately (GO ME!) and I'm entirely sure what's the deal with that. Not that I'm complaining whatsoever, I love the feeling of being productive and making little lists and checking them twice (oh Santa! You have the bestest job in the world!), but it's just something I'm not used to and I can't figure out what prompted it. It feels like one day I just woke up, the light bulb dinged!, and I came to the realization that I only have 3 years left at Cal...OH NO! HOLY COW! It's time to do everything I want to do and there's just so much I want to, hope to, wish to accomplish before my years in college are over. I love the tired feeling at the end of the day where I simply can't gather up the energy to stand up and knowing that's due to a day full of productive shizz, aww yeaah! Look at me, I'm all grown up! HOORAY!
On brighter news, literally, the sun is finally out! Yay, the sun has come out to play and I'm indulging in it before it leaves us again. Hello bare legs, good bye leggings! I'm finally getting back into my groove and wearing something more than my beloved oversized denim tops with leggings and moccasins, it's about time! These t-strap wedges are my new buffalo exchange haul, they're deena & ozzy and they sooo remind me of vampires, am I right? And if anyone dares to make a Twilight reference...well, I may just have to kill you. I couldn't wait to break out my vintage skirt from JoellenLove, it's so cute and I love the uneven and distressed hemline. Ugh, I've seriously missed wearing actual clothes, it feels oh so lovely.

This is it. The last of my LA adventures, the end of the hoopla, the finale. TA DA! Let's begin.
Three girls, in LA, what to do, what to do?! We couldn't think of a better use of a day than to visit the holy bench that the amazing buttocks of Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zoe Deschanel (among with a million of other die hard romantic's) have graced. I gladly smothered my own ass all over the bench to soak up all and any essence of the two that is still left on the bench. Not going to lie, I died a little on the inside. Died in a good way, my heart swooned all over the place. I promise, nee, I SWEAR I'm not a stalker....I SWEAR!
A little photo sess later, we needed a caffeine fix to prep us for the little drive back and to warm us up because the sun in LA never came up that day and left us with nothing but wind. Little did we know that everything in downtown LA closes by 5PM. UHM WHAT?! Confused? Indeed. But we eventually found a cute little organic coffee shop by UCLA that had delicious desserts that flavor-danced all over my tongue. Yummmmmm!

The next day, our final day in LA, I HAD to make time to go to the Melrose Trading Post and I'm SOOO Happy I did! Let me just say, vintage heaven, OH DEAR LORD! Within 5 seconds of walking in we spotted a Rumi Neely look-a-like! I found gorgeous vintage items from leather bags to shabby chic furniture to leather boots! Everyone, boys and girls, there dressed amazingly well, I couldn't help but oogle and stare and drool (just a little). Sigh, I left my heart there and I need to return and retrieve it ASAP!
And that was it, the end of my six day trip in LA. I'm already starting to plan my next trip down!

Day 2 and 3 of my trip down south, south as in LA not hell, or worse...Texas. The humidity does not like me nor do I like it. But anyways! After hitting up beautiful Newport Beach, we turned the car around and drove up and landed ourselves in downtown LA. My friend's roommate took us to this observatory that overlooks the whole city and the Hollywood sign (bucket list #54: hike up to the Hollywood sign). It was sooo breathtaking!
Being the city girl at heart that I've ALWAYS been and will always be, I treasure and love ANY point that overlooks ANY city; It so easily just takes my breath away and I feel so alive seeing the car lights and the buildings light up the darkness, it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I can't wait until I finally move into a busy bustling city like I've always imagined for myself. Bye bye cows and sheeps and hello endless traffic and obnoxious honking at 3AM. I am so ready, BRING IT OWN! I'll love it all, I promise!
The next morning we took a little drive down to Ventura to meet up with my roommate who took us to Santa Monica Pier. Very much like Santa Cruz, we quickly started walking towards Venice Beach, which I enjoyed a lot more. A lot lot more. Okay, I loved it! Like a bigger, awesomer, even a more so LEGEN-wait for it-DARY version of our own little Telegraph, I was GAGA for literally anything and everything. Knowing me and how easily amused I am, my friends herded me down the street where I simply had to stop at every stall and oogle at everything that was out for display.
The sun was shining, the breeze was blowing, the cash was dwindling. and the time was ticking, so we made our way back to the car to begin the trek back.

On a side note, I'm currently sitting in Zanzibar, a coffee shop in Berkeley, and, naturally, after 4 hours of reading my social history book, I stretched out my arms as wide as I can. Naturally, being my embarrassing self, I would hit the HUGE canvas painting that would not be completely nailed down and I would knock half of it off of its nail and it would HANG off the wall. Oh me oh my, I can't even say I'm surprised. Welcome to my embarrassing life.

After the dreary fuss that was finals, hectic move outs and sad goodbyes, a well deserved break from reality was exactly what I needed to gather myself before the eminent doom that is Berkeley summer session. So what could be better than a trip down south the west coast to visit the people I miss the most? Well, maybe a trip to Europe or Belize or Bali, BUT I'm broke and only have a week off and I'M BROKE, so a drive down to LA would have to do.
The first stop was Newport Beach. MAN is that place beyond BEAUTIFUL?! Seriously, I can't even begin to imagine what it would be like to actually live there. Albeit it is a quaint little town, nevertheless the beautiful ocean surrounding is definitely something I could get used to. The beach has always been a favorite of mine. I love the way it smells, the way it sounds, and the way it can always calm me like nothing else in the world is able to do; it's pure magic and nothing but.
OHH, AWW, OHH! The houses there were just AMAZING! I am an architecture-junkie (or so I'd like to think) and the houses were so unique and different from anything in the bay. There were contemporary, modern, brick, European, old-school, southern, beachy, and so much more! I was in eye candy overload to tell you the truth, I was OOHING and AWWING at HOUSES. Not boys, or anything of that sort but houses. Typical me.
I love traveling and being a tourist and doing all things embarrassing, isn't it a fun thing to do? It's a speciality of mine, I'm freakin' awesome at being an embarrassment! It's pretty much encoded into my DNA, I can't wait to pass these amazing genes on, let's populate a world full of awkward embarassing kids, YEAH! Anyone down? Let's start a new tribe.
I had the best time driving around from Laguna Beach to Irvine to Corona del Mar, it was all just so beautiful! My eyes were kind of overwhelmed by the simple beauty that these towns provided. While there was not much to do there, the simple fact that the beach is merely 3 steps away changes the whole feel of the town. See, it is all about the little things in life.
