Liu Bolin x The Invisible Man x "Hiding in The City"

"Hiding in The City"
Liu Bolin
 I may have posted some of his work previously on the blog, but to my delight Liu Bolin is still at it; creating optical illusions and immersing himself into his art - literally.

happy I decided to get my conch instead of my tragus

asked for a sign and God sent me two
claim it, and it'll be yours
5 Things I Know For Sure About Love - tried and true*

 ( SIDE NOTE: me and the homies *in my best Kendrick voice* caught an open mic at Bus Boys and Poets yesterday... which resulted in a lot of inquiries about my hoodie -  a very awesome brand, LLULO. Hey Michelle! )

Weekend Recap: Last Days of Summer 2014

I love entertaining. It's probably one of my favorite things to do. Out of town visitors allow more freedom to do that than my 'local' friends because they're a lot more willing to explore an area that's new to them. I've lived in DC my whole life and there are so many untapped sources of fun that I don't take advantage of nearly enough.. but I'm getting better.
This weekend was unplanned for the most part. A friend told me about a "Beer Bourbon and BBQ" event that was being held in the Tyson's corner area which was entirely too convenient to pass up. The event was cool - unlimited beer, whiskey and wine tasting... along with various vendors serving up everything from a whole roasted hog to spreadable bacon. (I'm a non-pork eater so I was there solely for the drink and good time.) Sunday, the last official day of summer, was a chill one. Caught the Redskins game on an outdoor screen at the harbor - which we stumbled upon accidentally, and followed up with a bottle of wine at the Tasting Room.
Good times all around. Can't wait to see what fun the fall has to bring.

( SIDE NOTE: Discovered this song [Do I Wanna Know x Arctic Monkeys] this weekend. I'm late to the party, but it's perfection. )

Musings x 9/19/2014

the weather this weekend is going to be perfect
good manners, good posture
current theme song: on me x jeezy, wiz
I can't wait to get on the ferris wheel at the harbor!
.. the fact that it's a little chilly at night now will make it that much better. ♥
 fall wardrobe, wine stained lips
wine optional
دع الحب يسيطر
stress level has decreased significantly
{another themed party coming soon}
do you think it's possible to miss out on your blessings or do you think they come back around?
good communication is vital
keep people around that inspire you.

"We should never put off what we really, really want in life. I know I can't... I have seen so many people waiting for the 'perfect time' to do something that they want so badly -- have a baby, switch jobs, leave a relationship. But the time is now." -Not Fade Away, Rebecca Alexander
...couldn't have said it better myself
strappy x slinky
Gucci Guilty
my 'sometimes' dimples have been thriving lately
don't know what to do with it.
having things to look forward to keeps me afloat (..even though I'm trying to work more on appreciating being in the moment)
best quote of the week: "you can lead a horse to water, but 9 times out of 10 if it's a male horse it will trip and drown."
I like what I like, unapologetically
what you know about them Creole girls?
learn to differentiate romantic love, platonic love and when it's not love at all
 stay humble, stay hungry
I'm noticing a change in myself... for the better
awareness heightened
it's never a loss for me, ever, and for that I'm grateful
... the vibes are crazy

Another Weekend, Another Sister Outing

I really hate taking pictures at parties with photographers. There's a number of reasons for this, but it's mainly because you never know where the pictures are going to end up. Hopefully yesterday will be the rare case where they'll be where they said they would. (*UPDATED* Thank you EliteDC! lol)
Anyway, it was another weekend spent with sisters.. it's B's last weekend in town before she heads back to Seattle, and she wanted to go to Cities (a DC day party). It wasn't exactly my first choice venue... but whatever B wants, B gets. 
Oh, and Lance Gross was there.
