A collaboration with myself.

Another self portrait that I did tonight. I couldn't get it exactly how I wanted it but, it's close enough and I will probably try it again.

Down The Rabbit Hole

Self Portrait taken tonight!

Second Levitating Self Portrait

Here is my second levitating photo from just a couple hours ago. I might try to create a series of these. They're so much fun!

Tonight, I was browsing through blogs and I got so inspired by a photo that a blogger had just posted. I clicked on the source and came across some really interesting photos. I felt so inspired, I had to try it out for myself. This is my first attempt to "levitating". I had a blast trying to levitate and I am super excited to try something similar to this again. I already have other ideas. This was sorta my test shoot and I actually like it a lot. Next time, I hope to set things up better. As well, I need to work on my pose. This isn't the last levitating I will try!

*This photo was taken in my room and I think it would be hilarious if I enlarged it and hung it on the wall near my bed.

Is this too dark? Personally, I like it but, I am not sure if I should make it lighter.

One more thing, I need a title for this photograph. I am not so great with coming up with titles. Any ideas?

Contemplating Change

Today, I felt so lazy. I looked around my house and thought of things that I could be doing but, nothing seemed to motivate me. I snapped a couple pictures of my living room. I decided I want to make some slight changes but, I needed a better look. It can be difficult to recognize what needs changed when you're seeing it everyday. Your mind and eyes just get used to it. I needed a new perspective.

I have recently repainted the lighter colored wall from a deep red to this bone white color and I am still adjusting to it. I am slowly starting to shift my style. I really like opposites styles. Sometimes they tend to not mix well. I love the soft shabby chic look, the ultra feminine, all whites, then I love a retro look, bold colors and layered clutter. I can never decide on one. So, I usually don't go with either or try to do a weird mix of the two. Also, I hate cleaning so I prefer to have less things. It makes cleaning, much faster.

Unfortunately, my other problem is my budget. I can only make purchases at a snails pace. At times I do get lucky and score something abandoned by someone else. Which I have had happen several times and I make the best of it(the white shelf above my couch was one of those abandoned items, found on the roadside).

Studying these two pictures, I think I will be removing the clock and when I find a replacement piece, I will post pictures. What do you think would look better there? And I also need to lower the white shelf. I used to have a different couch and it was much larger. I still haven't gotten around to lowering the shelf. Soon, real soon.

Oh and have you ever seen such a huge lamp shade. I love oversized lamps and especially lamp shades. It's so big, it makes the room look like a doll house, where all of the furniture's sizes don't match because some of the furniture was made for Barbie and some for Polly Pocket but, as a kid you used all of it anyways because that's what you had. Well, my living room is the same, I use what I have and I have favorite pieces they just don't all match.

Sunday, my mom, my stepdad and I took a short road trip to the Pasadena Flea Market. It was my first time going to a Flea Market and I had high expectations. My expectations were definitely met. I am so excited about all the lovely vintage dresses I purchased and will be posting them to my Etsy store, Little Orphan Fannie. It's going to be really difficult to let some of them go. (I haven't allowed myself to try any on because I'd keep all of them!)
