The Irony Of Choking On A Lifesaver

no this is not the candy and no not the song of All Time Low either (although I am telling you ALL to go and check out All Time Low’s Don’t Panic! It’s their latest album and I would say it’s totally worth your while!) I also think Don’t Panic! deserves a separate post hahaha

Anyhow, it’s been 2 months since my last post and I am deeply sorry about that 😦 We’ve been very busy in school and everything has been going downhill and I just didn’t know what to say anymore.

Term 2 just started and the 2 most important Forms are finally over so I guess I owe you guys several posts… and I’ll start with this!

OH! Me and my friends, Kimberly and Daniela, are starting a shop soon! We just finished the photoshoot earlier and we can’t wait to launch it! Watch out for Ombré you guys 🙂

Anyway, my life’s been pretty up and down these past few months… You would think everything was going well since I don’t really post much about my life but hey, everyone’s got their own slice of the bitter cake. It sucks. There are these people in my life who I think are there to help me out but I guess I just suck at responding to everything properly because instead of getting out of this deep hole that I’m in, I just end up falling deeper…. ergo the title.

Thank god there are concerts though. I just went to one of the best concerts ever. It was the Bazooka Rocks Festival and I was on the barricades from 12:30 noon until 11:30 pm. Yup! That’s 11 hours of just standing up! Thank god those people on stage were nice enough to give us unused water bottles when we asked for one… (There’ll be a post about that too don’t worry haha!)

I also started on a photo blog! Check it out here: http://marianplaza.tumblr.com/

Life is weird again but oh well I just can’t wait for this to end I guess

Marc Johns (and his not so) Serious Drawings

As I was scrolling through my dashboard on Tumblr, I came across this awesome drawing that really caught my attention;

Image

ever since I saw it that day, it immediately became my life motto.

I searched for the artist right away and I ended up on his site!

http://www.marcjohns.com/

Have you ever experienced those moments when you see something for the first time and you immediately think “Wow that is so relevant I can’t really explain it but it’s like my whole life’s described/written there“? Going through his drawings were is one of those moments for me… He makes really interesting works of art that I find really amusing and although they’re simple, they’re all definitely worth a million words.

Image

Marc Johns’ work has been everywhere apparently… From New York to Athens to Vancouver, his work’s been exhibited in a lot of places!! His works were also featured in several publications like Newsweek, National Geographic, and The New York Times.

He makes these things with pens and watercolour and… wow just look at these and these will explain everything that I’m trying to say hahaha

Marc Johns is one of my favourite artists now 🙂 🙂

He also has a book! It’s out of stock everywhere though 😦 BUT, try checking out other bookstores and online shops! **it’s quite pricey so yeah**

Do It Yourself

So last night, I was looking through the March 2012 issue of Candy ( http://www.candymag.com/ ) . And as I was about to put it down, I saw their list of “All The Best-est!”, this list shows all the great new websites and blogs that you should visit and among them is I Spy D.I.Y.

http://www.ispydiy.com/

I’ve always been into D.I.Y.’s and as of right now, I’m running a little short on money so that means no clothes or anything at all 😦 BUT with D.I.Y. projects, you can have new clothes and accessories for a waaay cheaper price! PLUS you’ll get to customize it! And in this website, I learned that you can do so much more with a simple cookie cutter or shoelaces or all of the things you wouldn’t have thought of!

Image

See those things above? Those are all D.I.Y. projects by Jenni Radosevich, the owner of I Spy D.I.Y. and one of the most amazing people I’ve ever encountered (on the world wide web haha). It’s amazing what you can do and the possibilities are endless!! This website brought back my love for Do It Yourself projects and I (kind of) already started again.

So when you’re short on ca$h and you are dying to get new stuff on your closet or if you’re just bored or if you want to have fun but you don’t know how, always remember that Do It Yourself projects are always at the tip of your fingers. 🙂
