Music Monday!

Oh James Morrison...I love you.   I love you & your raspy, passionate soulful voice.  I've been a fan of his for a little over 4 years now and I CANNOT wait until I finally get the chance to see him live at the 930 club in DC.  I may cry..scratch that, I will cry.

I get so excited when I get a chance to see someone live that I've been such a fan of.  I love live music, especially at small venues..DC crowds are the BEST crowds.  I swear they give the most love.  But onward to the music monday post. Don't get me wrong, all of his albums are fantastic..but I just can't get enough of his first album Undiscovered.  Here are two of my favorite singles from that album.

Youtube is being stupid right now, so hopefully these videos will show up! Sorry!

You're welcome ;)

Flower of the day-Stargazer lily

This flower is BY FAR my most favorite flower in the entire world.  When I went to longwood gardens a couple of weeks ago and saw my life flower, I squealed with joy.  I mean sh*t I got it tattooed on my arm!  I took a picture of it(well more than just one picture), and I have finally decided to draw it.

Here's a picture I took of the stargazer lily.

Now here's my drawing in steps.
(Once again..CLICK TO ENLARGE!! :) )

If you want to check out more photos I took from my trip to longwood gardens, check out my tumblr .
I'd love to know what you all think.

Music Monday!

Happy music monday!

Lately I can't get enough of No Doubt. Not much else to post, so yeah. Enjoy :)

Bleach Frenzy

Must stop bleach dying things...ah screw it.  It's so much fun!  Bleach & tie dye are my new favorite things.  A couple of days ago I bleach dyed some leggings of mine.  I got the tutorial from this amazing blog abevyof .  It's super easy.

And THENNN.. I dyed some jeans of mine.  I just bought a white pair from forever 21 & dyed them blue.  It wasn't until afterwards that I realized I could've used blue jeans and bleached them haha.  My thought process is so backwards.  I cannot wait until I experiment with different hues & different shirts & jeans!

I like how much the blue faded after the waiting & washing process ended.  It's not super blue like that first picture.  I am a happy camper!  I also dip bleach dyed some shorts of mine.  Whenever I'm comfortable with showing off my meaty legs maybe I'll wear them out.

Final note..I WILL be posting some of the drawings of the pictures I took while at longwood gardens. I've just been lazy :)

Azealia Banks!!(Music post)

Happy music..Tuesday?  I totally dropped the ball on sticking with my Music Monday posts. Oops! Well NEWAYZ(middle school slang)  here's your music fix for the day!

Azealia Banks, I saw her video on MTV randomly and it's been in my head for days.  I love when she starts to sing towards the middle of the song, it was a nice surprise. I love her voice, her personal style, her hair..everything about her is just awesome!

DIY-Fancy Boots

I love me a good DIY project.  If you picked up the newest issue of NYLON magazine, then you would be very excited about their little DIY article, it's pretty bad ass.


The only thing I skipped on with the materials list is the brilo pad & leather cleaner.  Here's what I did in picture form!

(I went to my local thrift store & grabbed a bunch of chain belts)

This was a pretty easy project, the only trouble was trying to figure out when enough was enough.  Got to work on self control!  Pick up your newest NYLON magazine & try it out!  What DIY projects have you been working on?

Longwood Gardens

This past weekend I went to Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania.  And I must say, it was the best experience EVER!  I absolutely love flowers, and I felt like I was about to burst!  This place is so beautiful beyond words.  I will definitely try to go back during the summer & winter.  Here are just a few of the pictures I took while I was there.  I took about 200 pictures, so it's been hard trying to decide what to put on here, and decide what to put on my photography tumblr.

Speaking of that.. JTPICS.TUMBLR.COM  check it out !!

I'm going to draw some of the photos I've taken too, so look out for some more postings.  Enjoy! (Also..PLEASE click to enlarge!! These thumbnails look much better once they are actual size.)

How was your weekend? :)

Music Monday!

I totally spaced out last week & forgot to do a Music Monday.  To make up for it I'll post two videos for you all. :)

First one is Ellie Goulding.  I love her voice, it's so angelic. Whenever they play this song at work it always puts me in a good mood.

Second video is from MoZella.  She really has a unique voice.  I always love when you hear someone singing and you paint a picture in your head of who you think it is..and then it's someone completely different.  Close your eyes and listen to this song and think about who you see singing it.  You'll see what I mean.
