I’ve been so productive on wedding stuff lately. Gathering all of the wedding party’s “signature drinks” for a menu I’m designing to be displayed on the bar. I’m thinking 2 11 x17 sized menus that’ll go up on stands on either side of the bar so people can look at them before they order a drink. It’s a cute way to recognize the wedding party, because we chose these people to be with us for the most important day of our lives. It’s a big deal to me. So the menu is a fun way to show them off. I’m so excited! I wish it was August already ahhhh.

Ambition is an interesting thing. I have a lot of it. I have this drive to succeed at whatever it is that I am doing. No matter if I like it or not. I was at a job I hated for an entire year and I still excelled at it the best I could because I refuse to fail. I take every task head on and I like getting things done. Preferably alone. But that part I attribute to my control freakness.
Ambition is the hunger to achieve what you want. Everyone talks about their dreams and goals but I see a lot people lacking the motivation to get there. It’s a shame because everyone, yes everyone, deserves a shot at their dreams. Some people will say “the world needs worker bees” or “not everyone can go for their dreams.” I think that’s an extremely detrimental attitude to have. That says that some dreams are worth more than others, that some people are worth more than others.
As long as you have the drive and the ZEAL Β you can get what you want. I firmly believe that.

House Baratheon

House Baratheon
House Baratheon was a little tough for me to dress. But then I thought of it from a rugged monarch perspective rather than the entire House and came up with a regal but edgy look for a young Baratheon queen. I chose the floral Alexander McQueen dress because I thought it looked the most “queenly” and paired it with crown earrings and a stag ring to rep the House symbol. The Moschino buckle booties were a great find and felt very appropriate for this outfit. They’re a strong, statement-making shoe and all that we know about Baratheons are how much they love to talk. House Baratheon is a headstrong, stubborn family and I felt that this look really repped that. What do you guys think?

Becoming socially aware can be a burden sometimes. Some days I just want to ignore the sexist, racist, creepy shit that happens around me, but I can’t. Because that’s not who I am anymore. I need to figure out a good way to approach certain things because being standoffish and mildly rude isn’t sustainable haha. Help meeeeee. Does anyone work or live in a place where they experience things like this? Or know people that are blatantly disrespectful and insensitive? I need advice on how to deal.

House Stark

House Stark
So I did this series on Polyvore of sets inspired by each House from A Song of Ice and Fire, as many of you know: Game of Thrones. Each set was inspired by region, culture, environment & people of each House.
With House Stark, I love their colors, their words, their strength so leather & studs were important for this look. The embroidered dress is very warrior-princess-like with shimmery gray tights that reflect the Stark banner. Obviously a wolf necklace to tie it all together. I was thinking about adding a fur coat but I really wanted the dress to be the centerpiece because its very bold & something I could see Arya or Lyanna Stark wearing. The very definition of a Stark woman I think. Something Sansa is inching closer and closer to.
What do you guys think??? Let me know in the comments!
