Woodlands of December

I originally had a different post write up planned about the christmas-like joys of getting mail order purchases but right now it seems a little bit more fitting in the spirit of the last month of the year to get a little reflective on you guys.  This year was kind of crazy, with a major rollercoaster ride nearly everyday of the month and really figuring out where I'm at and now that it's almost over, I guess I've finally gotten the perspective I was looking for.  I just started blogging pretty much three months ago with a long hiatus in between and now that I'm starting up again, I feel like I have more direction of what I want my blog to represent and to become so hopefully you'll start to notice some changes around here.  So here's to a little self honesty, a little bit of soul searching and splash of holiday colors as we look to 2013 (and to my first every NYC trip as a official YMA Fashion Scholar of 2012 to attend the ceremony!  More gushing to come on a later post).  Btw, the giveway is still going so if you haven't entered....

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket That face above is probably the best shot ever on this blog. Awkward unintentional movement shots with grimacing FTW. Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket AARGH just finished my accessories sketch and realized that I left out the sunnies. :( To be fair, those lasted about five minutes before I remembered that soul searching requires a best mate, a pack of KFC wings and choc berry krushers next to a lake.

    1. I use photoshop, although you could easily do the same thing on a lot of different programs like GIMP which is free. :)

  10. I'm glad you have found the answers and perspectives you were looking for. I'm more interested in reflective posts than 'HEY GUYS, LOOK AT THIS COOL NEW THANG I GOT FOR XMAS"... more original. Also, love the fact that you illustrate your looks. I'm in love with your boots too! Gorgeous :)
