For quite a few years now, I have been hugely influenced by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's personal style, and so when I heard they were releasing a book based on those who directly influences them, of course I couldn't wait to get my hands on it.

Luckily, my copy of the book arrived yesterday, and immediately I could sense how different this book was from other celebrity "written" books. You can tell that they had a direct hand in the book, and didn't just slap their names on the cover.

It's a collection of photos, quotes, and interviews with big name designers, photographers, illustrators, etc... All conducted by the girls themselves.

One of my favorite parts of the book is where Ashley and Mary-Kate have filled out a questionaire. Everyone has always seen them as the same, but their answers to these questions couldn't be more proof as to how different they actually are.

I'll call it the "Influence" questionaire, even though it really is a questionaire called "An Album to Record Thoughts, Feelings, etc."

-Your most marked characteristic?
-The quality you most like in a man?
-The quality you most like in a woman?
-What do you most value in your friends?
-What is your principle defect?
-What is your favorite occupation?
-What is your dream of happiness?
-What to your mind would be the greatest misfortunes?
-What would you like to be?
-In what country would you like to live?
-What is your favorite color?
-What is your favorite flower?
-What is your favorite bird?
-Who are your favorite prose writers?
-Who are your favorite poets?
-Who is your favorite hero of fiction?
-Who are your favorite heroines of fiction?
-Who are your favorite composers?
-Who are your favorite painters?
-Who are your heroes in real life?
-What is it you most dislike?
-What natural gift would you most like to possess?
-How would you like to die?
-What is your present state of mind?
-To what faults do you feel most indulgent?
-What is your motto?
-Your Name or Pseudo

Feel free to answer the questions, and maybe even pass it along.

Happy Holiday Season

With Christmas just days away, I thought this was a perfect time to send out a holiday greeting to everyone.

I hope that everyone has a great holiday season and that the new year brings good things to everyone's lives.

It seems as if all of us are experiencing some sort of difficulty at this time, but we have to remember this is all temporary and that soon enough better times will come if we hold on a little longer.

Have a safe & wonderful week and New Year!

Colors of Spring 2009

Pantone has released it's fashion color report and one of the colors listed is Lucite Green.

Although I have never referred to this color by that name, as you can see, it is one that I am currently obsessed with. I always tend to fall in love with colors that aren't trendy quite yet, but they always seem to become popular quite some time after I've spent forever looking for it.

I guess it's good to be ahead of the curb, but when you're in the moment of looking for whatever you want, and cannot find it at that time, then that's when it becomes frustrating.

Soon, though, I guess I'll be able to find enough "Lucite Green" to last me a lifetime.


Do you have a particular color you really like, but hasn't yet become big enough to be painted on everything?

Happy DECEMBER everyone!

2008 will come to an offical end in less than a month. I still remember New Years Eve last year, and so it completely amazes me how quickly time has passed.

But before we start reminiscing about the past year, let's enjoy what we have ahead of us in this month:


We recieved our first snowfall here two days ago, and now that holiday feeling is begining to fill up the spaces everywhere you go.

This is really a special time of year, and so I hope everyone can experience the pure joy it brings, no matter what situation you may be facing.
