Bedroom Therapy

It's taken me long enough, but I've finally gotten around to re-decorating my room.

It was turning into an ugly dump. I won't even show you any before pictures. That's how unnatractive it was. But it's also because I don't have any pictures, anyway.

I'm still in the middle of it all, but I do have a crappy picture of the room colour that I took from my phone to show you guys.
There's the colour. And that green dresser in the corner is the colour of two dominant pieces of furniture in my room, so that gives you an idea of how the wall and furniture look together.

Is it really weird to paint your bedroom a dark colour? Most people seemed to think I was a freak of nature for choosing a dark blue. Well, to hell with light colours! Going bold is so much more fun.

I'm still in the process of it all and probably won't be completely finished for another two weeks or so. I've been looking at Apartment Therapy for ideas. See, I don't live in an apartment, but my room is awfully small, which is why I chose to stick to AT for decor ideas.

Here are some of the images I've picked out for inspiration. Enjoy!

King of Anything

 ...But you expect me to jump up on board with you.
And ride off into your delusional sunset.

Sara Barielles, you minx. The above song is quite catchy, and is already making its way up the charts. Her newest album, Kaleidoscope Heart is number one. Her newest music video, 'King of Anything' is lovely and artistic. I especially love the 'forks-instead-of-piano-keys' look. For someone who was dead off the mainstream music scene for a little, its safe to say that she is definitely back. One of her most popular songs was 'Love Song':

Sound familiar? It was featured in many movie soundtracks... I can see why, questioning and really catchy. Its a rare find, someone who can write music, and perform it. Sara Barielles does both well, especially the writing lyrics part.

Hope your weekend went well,

Any good song recommendations? I really need to update my iPod.

School Shopping Sex

Summer is coming to an end... and that means SHOPPING.
Shopping, if done and spent well, can get very tiring, but in the end, one is happy with their productivity. If the consumer is happy, then the economy is happy (At least, that's what I tell my mum when trying to convince her to let me buy something expensive...). Hello! this is 2010, if shopping is the only thing keeping the economy booming, then I say... why the hell not? Not only is this time of year the second to Christmas in terms of spending $$, but it's one of the busiest. From last minute purchases, to the swipe of the card that you know you'll eventually have to pay, it's all in good fun... and debt.
Clothes aren't the only thing... I'm not sure if I'm the only one, but the smell of new school supplies leaves me intoxicated. I love buying new ink pens, or writing the first word on a fresh piece of paper. Who needs alchohol when you can have safe eye sex with a new notebook? Who needs romance when you've got a sexy and chic ink pen as a boyfriend?

The one thing that leaves me disappointed every year, is the lack of range and fashion sense that some teens have today. Watching shows like Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars really gets me excited about school fashion, but in the end, its all the same Abercrombie & Fitch tee-ripped jeans-converse kind of style. It's so hard to find someone who's not the perfect teenage stereotype. Seriously, if I could add anything to the walking billboard ways of highschool, it would be REAL FASHION.

The skirts a little short for school rules... but who follows those anyway?
Although this is from a season one episode... I still think about Jenny Humphreys (Taylor Momsen) outfit. LOOK AT THAT JACKET.

Dream Highschool Sweetheart. Goodness, why do guys have to wear over sized t-shirts and fake Ed Hardy shirts.... "to look cool".

PERHAPS You'll See More Of This.

My art.

I've finally acquired Adobe Photoshop again. I don't even remember how long it's been since I last had it installed on my computer.

I've been reluctant about posting my own artwork because
a) I'm not sure if it's any good half the time and
b) when I do think it's good, I scan it, my scanner fucks up the quality and makes my nice drawing look like crap.

Now, I can edit and fix up my illustrations so they don't look like ugly scribbles when I share them with you guys!

Here's one.

An illustration I did of Anslee from America's Next Top Model (Cycle 14).
I still don't like the way the hair scanned through, but whatever...

That's all for now!
