happy mother’s day!
mom, i love you. thank you for being the best friend a daughter could ask for. thank you for your love, patience, and kindness. thank you for listening and giving advice. thank you for pointing me to christ. xo
one of my favorite books when i was younger. i used to collect all the books in the series, mainly because of the necklaces they came with. i still have the silver slippers necklace.
winter break highlights (sorry for the extreme delay).
cool, sophisticated, stylish, young, and candid. my research on jackie has helped me understand why everyone was so obsessed with the kennedy family. now, i have become just as engrossed and fascinated.

Like a 19th century Romantic Period ballerina, a flower-crowned model holding a bunch of red balloons floats above the crowd in a tutu-like tulle skirt. She is showcasing one of the never-before-seen spring/summer looks at online fashion startup Shoptiques.com’s first birthday party, held on March 21 at the hip SoHo restaurant Galli. This skirt exemplifies its motto—“Be Yourself. Be Different”—plastered in huge black letters on the wall of Shoptiques.com’s office, which is just as eclectic as the clothes it sells from local boutiques.

springtime is tennis, fresh flowers, painted toenails, neon shorts, sunshine, and unsweetened ice tea.

i’m so pleased to see that allison williams is the new cover girl for town & country magazine’s april issue. i stood next to her backstage at jason wu’s fall 2013 show, and she is just as graceful, poised, and polite as she looks in the pictures. i always knew her as the art gallery star on girls and brian williams’s daughter. but after reading t&c’s feature of her, she is my new role model.
i was surprised to learn that her parents didn’t let her take profession acting jobs until after college. instead, she had a solid childhood with a strong liberal arts education at yale. clearly, that didn’t prevent her from having a successful career.
what i really like about her is that despite being an it-girl in the crazy entertainment world, she chooses to make admirable decisions. post-college, she stopped drinking and late-night unhealthy eating. plus, she doesn’t do nudity scenes and maintains a classy but stylish look on the red carpet.
