Baby you can be the muse

Forever 21 cheetah coat/skinny pant/laced-up boots/feathered necklace/turban, Lucky Brand top, Nine West bag

Sorry for the mini hiatus! This weekend was rather relaxing and enjoyable but it seemed like a whirlwind at the same time- maybe it was a result of sleeping at really late hours (I'm so sensitive to caffeine it's not even funny) and then waking up late only to feel like much was needed to be done. Yesterday I celebrated a 21st birthday of one of my great gal friends in LA with Korean taco truck burritos, Japanese chicken wings, cupcakes, our friends Patron & Grey Goose, and dance parties. Uncontrollable laughter, good music and good food, and great company makes for an extraordinary night... sleepovers at age 21 are definitely a lot more entertaining haha! Anyway, isn't this cheetah coat amazing?! I was waiting to find a nice one at a thrift store or a vintage flea market but while getting some birthday shopping done at Forever 21, I found this and fell in love with the price and surprising quality of the coat. It's pretty thick and it kept me really warm even with just one layer underneath. Such a great find.

Winter break has commenced and I am so excited to start devoting my time towards crafty projects. I've got a few DIY projects in mind so a trip to a nearby thrift store is in order so I'm really excited to get my hands on some great pieces and make them golden. I'm also planning on cooking up designs and illustrations of my own... time to tap into Jenny circa 2001. In two weeks I'll be heading to Mammoth and experiencing snow for the first time EVER (yeah, where have I been all my life, right?). In one month, I'll be in New York for the first time EVER. Stay tuned folks :) but in the mean time, check out my Chictopia account (and if you're a member, please vote for my picture as I'm trying to win a trip to SF!) and this song that's been on heavy rotation for the past few days:
