Angelina Jolie is bad-ass

Angelina Jolie in the movie Wanted, was rocking Oliver People's Strummers while shooting a gun out of a Rover. Bad-ass!

Alexander McQueen shoes to die for!

I am currently head over heels for Alexander McQueen pumps! I love shoes but ONLY well designed shapely shoes. Line and aesthetics are everything***

Check out the 198919 chain metal pumps. I love the detailing and intricacy of this shoe for a whopping $2000+ US. I am wishing and dreaming :) This shoe screams drama queen tranny gladiator or badass goddess warrior!

Then there's this pink number I spotted in Nordstrom one day and I was stunned. What the heck was this doing on the sale rack in Nordstrom!? I decided to investigate online and discovered my new shoe designer love . The 198951 reminds me of burlesque, Paris, mixed with Pepe LePew edge! This shoe would rock with an all black number.

Lastly, the 195094 WA016 is sleek and mysterious. A stylish exotic zebra on heels. The design lines emulate a rib cage that hugs the foot. I think it's pretty interesting that McQueen heels don't have names, but just numbers like convicts in a prison. Maybe they're just too beautiful to the designer to describe in a few words. Anyways, I have my eye out on these shoes. The square toe pumps are to die for as well!!!...but I'll post those later.

The need for nothing...

So I've finally come to the point where I have everything I need. I'm anxiously waiting for my long awaited Treesje Asher to arrive. I really hope it gets here safe and sound. It's been a long 7 months obsessing over thousands of ugly bags online.

Now the sad thing is this... I'm bored and I'm searching online for more. For more things I don't need. I don't need anything. I have everything I need now. The conquest is over, yet these meaningless material things will never give me satisfaction. I see this pattern over and over again in this earthly world. With relationships, with clothes, with cars, with jobs. And it all boils down to that same truth that nothing in this world will make you happy. Happiness comes from within and it's inside everyone. It's up to you to unlock this internal satisfaction and realize that you don't need anything. That everything material just disappears anyways.

And so I state here my gratitude for what I have at this present moment. A job where I have flexibility, can exercise creativity, wear what I want, and is 5 minutes away from home. I drive a BMW convertible that's compact enough during parallel parking madness. I have no idea how little me ended up with Zmurf - it's a love-hate relationship with that car.

I live by the beach. I can walk out and relax and enjoy the sand and sunshine whenever I want. Living by the beach makes me not want to go anywhere else. I find myself not wanting to drive or visit any other places because I'm content where I'm located. I have a boyfriend, who through ups and downs, we still stick strong and our love fights through the storm of everyday unconsciousness. He is beautiful and I am blessed. Waking up everyday beside someone you love is like finding lost treasure. And lastly, I can dance like a maniac. My soul is able to move in ways I can't describe. I feel music and it penetrates my soul and makes it come to life. I love that feeling and the energy of "house" ;).

Anyways, that's me. That's me right now. I am happy and I'm satisfied. I don't need more stupid material things to chase after.

Airport Adventure

I wait patiently at the Burbank airport. Flight's been delayed for over an hour. I wait an hour more.

Going home for the holidays.
To slumber in the purple den atop a cloud and catch zzz's in my net of dreams.

Life is good.
I have what I need and I'm grateful for what I have. I love the people in my life and I feel loved.

Life is but a dream
