Life Lately...(Summer)

LLIf only I can spend a couple of days a week sitting in a coffee shop for hours.  I would be writing draft posts for my blog, working on my e-book, sketching jewelry ideas and brain storming some witty tweets to promote them.  However, that's not the case. None of that is happening.  I blame the Summer. The Summer makes me feel laaaaaaazy.

I'm seeing a shift in blogging.  Do you see it?  I'm reading more posts about how bloggers are blogging less and they feel guilty about it. Don't! There's just too shit out there, let's not keep adding to it.  I still follow blogs who don't post daily, it's ok if you post once or twice a week! I have found that I am less likely to scroll over a blog post from a blog that posts less often than someone who is always updating. 

E-book, yeah I'll finish that one day.  So much for my July deadline.  I still plan on finishing it but I don't have an expected time.  They say you should give yourself a deadline to kick yourself in the ass and stay motivated.  But most of what experts say don't apply to me lol! 

I ordered some more jewelry supplies the other day and I have unfinished pieces on my table for a few weeks now.  When I say I feeling lazy and sluggish, it's really that!  I don't think I've experienced a slump this bad since ever!  But I am not going to beat myself up over it, I'll just document it all on my blog instead.  Maybe if I had a market coming up that would motivate me? Perhaps that's why I am most productive in the Fall/Winter.

There's no drama to report, nothing is pulling me away from blogging/writing/jewelry making, I'm feeling meh is all.  How are you doing this Summer? Keeping busy? Going some place fun?


NYC Weekend Visit - A Whole Lot Of Fashion

It appears that when I go for my July visits to the city, a visit to The Metropolitan Museum of Art is in order. This year's big fashion exhibit is China: Through The Looking Glass and it was stunning.  It depicts how traditional Chinese design has impacted on Western fashion over the years.  

A truly inspiring exhibit which is also pretty big as it takes up three floors of the museum.  The exhibit ends September 7th so if you're planning a trip to the city, this a must see!  In the meantime, here are some pictures.

July weekend in NYC

Some of these rooms were so dark and I did not want to use a flash so I did my best to photograph what I could.  The below are gowns inspired by blue and white porcelain dishes.

 This room was so mind blowing, I could have spent the whole day in here.

Happy 4th of July!


Yay fireworks, sparklers, BBQs and all that good stuff!  I hope you enjoy the day America!  I guess we have some pretty cool stuff to celebrate this year like the right to marry who you want, anywhere in the damn country now! 

Seriously, why did it take us so long? 

I'm actually working today but I don't mind. I am working in my pajamas and should be finished later this afternoon anyway.  Do you have any fun plans today?

While the blog has been kind of quiet, I'm still hanging around, reading my blog reads, tweeting and Instagramming so I hope you're following me there.
