year 12 graduation and its gift

As a graduation present, i decided to treat myself to YSL's iconic 'Arty Ring'. I've been wanting one of these baby's for a while... and finally bit the bullet... i guess it'll replace that marc by marc jacobs purse i'd been saving for....?
'A symbol of bohemian, Rive Gauche-chic and outspoken sophistication, this Iconic Arty ring pays homage to the renowned Yves Saint Laurent couture jewelry collection. A textured gold-finish metal setting encases a brilliant stone - a true statement piece that moves effortlessly from day to evening.' -



an asian schoolies!

I'm heading to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in a few weeks for schoolies and i couldn't be more excited! Besides wanting to jump into the ocean (& the duty free store) the minute I land, I'm psyched to look at some great art and possibly even make some purchases.

My friend has many connections over there, so im sure it'll be 'party, party, party' like a school leaver should... but I'm determined to carve out some time for art-gawking, sunning, and shopping.. at KLCC. its Malaysia's premier shopping centre located at the base of the Petronas Twin Towers (aparently only a few minutes from our apartment) in Kuala Lumpur City Centre.

Here, some of the things I'll be packing for the long weekend--a cross-body bag, a Tori Praver swim suit, some statement jewels, sunnies, UV protection for the lips and hair, a knit sweater for the cooler nights, and the novel I've been meaning to get started on for weeks. xo



SCHOOL IS OVER, UNI APPLICATIONS ARE IN, VCA AUDITIONS (AND CALLBACKS!?!?) ARE COMPLETE!! and now its time to fill my holidays with more blogging! (and drawing tanning, shopping and traveling - to Kuala Lumpur with a girlfriend for a week and a half for schoolies!)

In other news... IVE GONE PRIMAL! ive been living primally for about two weeks and i've never felt better! Reading Nutrition and Physical Degeneration by Weston A. Price solidified my belief that “traditional” diets provide – historically and currently – the raw materials for healthy living. “Traditional” diets varied greatly from one corner of the globe to another – but they all relied on locally produced foods free of refined sugar, flour, and heavy processing. In general, the healthiest folks consumed a diet heavy in animal products from wildlife that ate and lived in harmony with their environment. These are values we can emulate today.

In short? Eat food as it occurs in nature. Eat meat and fat (yes, FAT!) from pasture-raised animal sources; enjoy cold-pressed plant fats from avocados, olives and coconut; use plenty of herbs & spices; eat lots of veggies. Variety is key. Lift heavy things and engage in quick, intense bursts of exercise a few times each week. Sleep. Be full, happy, and well. Simple. AND BRILLIANT!
