“Been there, done that, got the T-shirt.”
– Zoë Saldana, on dating fellow actors, to Allure
Can’t we all be a little bit more like her?
Without even noticing, every “A Collection” post has some sort of a theme. I always enjoy going back and looking at the different sets asking myself what the common theme was. What was I feeling that day? Why did I select this photo, that photo, and this series of photos? I started writing this about a fourth into completing this post and I noticed that all of the photographs are pretty simplistic, but also muted. There are times when I won’t remember why there is a theme, but I think this completely embodies how I’m feeling right now. Somewhat muted, but it’s a refreshing time right now because there is so much that is unknown. Also – Seattle has the hottest weather in all of the country right now, which is incredible and NEVER happens. Funny, because you would think that these photos would be much brighter to resemble that, but they are not. Surprise!
Since Phillip Lim has been showing his collections on Style.com, I have been a fan. His pieces are effortless, classic, feminine and everything that I look for as an aging 20-something. Of course, I liked it before then too, but it’s much more applicable now. It was announced this week that Phillip Lim would be next in line to collaborate with Target and it looks like we’ll have the collection in stores beginning September! The collection will include pieces for both men and women and will feature apparel, shoes, bags, and travel accessories.
“Since an early age, I’ve been intrigued by the idea of design evolution,” said Phillip Lim in a release. “One of the reasons I wanted to collaborate with Target is because I felt that together we could create a collection that would inspire – one that is cool and chic, but still very accessible.”

I posted this earlier this week in video form, but in case you missed it – here it is a second time in just simple quote form.
And on this Friday, I just received the most affirming life advice. I am very grateful to have people in my life that have such hope in what I do. Knowing that fact, I know I’ll never be alone in whatever decision I make for myself. What a positive way to start this weekend off! I hope someday I can inspire others the way my former professors have inspired me.
It used to take me over six months to go back to a blog that I haven’t visited in a while. With my new routine and schedule and the absence of homework, I am able to get through my blogs a lot quicker which frees up more time for me to be creative and to spend more time on posts that mean a lot to me instead of just posting and being done with it. Most of the photographs in this A Collection post came from one blog and go figure it’s called Thriving Twenties so of course we can relate hence why we love it.
When I am on Pinterest, some of my favorite things to pin are little quotes that I find matched up with awesome print designs like this one above. They can all be found on my Truth and Words board. Last night, I stumbled upon this great site called Recite This in which you can do the same thing with quotes that you pick yourself! While at dinner last night, Stephanie said the above and I thought to myself, this would look pretty great as a print…better turn it into one.
Have fun with the site you guys! I know I”ll be keeping it around in my back pocket for other moments in the future.
Girls star Christopher Abbott has reportedly quit the show. Abbott – who plays Charlie, the boyfriend of Marnie (Allison Williams) – “abruptly” departed the HBO series ahead of its third season, according to the New York Post.The report claims that the actor chose to exit the comedy-drama following a creative dispute with Girls creator and star Lena Dunham.
“[Chris] is grateful for the experience of collaborating with Lena, Judd [Apatow], and the entire Girls cast and crew, but right now he’s working on numerous other projects and has decided not to return to the show,” his rep confirmed.
Um the main reason for why I watch Girls is because of Charlie! This is the saddest thing I’ve read all week. Where is Charlie going?! Why! Just why.
To top everything off, Chris Brown is also a Frank Ocean hater.
“There’s a lot of strategies people try to use when they’re up for awards. You know? It’s the sympathy role.” Brown said. “I don’t have to go that route. I just do my music and do my thing. For [Ocean], it’s whatever.”
Please. just stop talking. I really think Chris Brown has no place to say something like this – that someone is getting the sympathy vote because of their sexual orientation. Frank Ocean is just better than you bro.
I’ve never caught an episode of Hart of Dixie, but I’ve been meaning to get into it! Are any of you guys fans?
On a scale of 1-10, how photoshopped is this cover? Sean is the epitome of a “Ken” doll and Catherine does not look anything like Catherine. Aside from the cover, the best quote from this cover story is:
– Bachelor Sean Lowe, on falling in love with fiancée Catherine Giudici, to PEOPLE
- Selena Gomez on her breakup with Justin Bieber
When Tina Fey and Amy Poehler cracked a joke about Taylor Swift possibly going after Michael J. Fox’s son at the Oscars, it was the highlight of my evening. I mean, c’mon it was funny, right? Well apparently, Miss Taylor Swift didn’t find any humor in it and has been quoted by Vanity Fair giving a somewhat cryptic, but obvious comeback:
“You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people, because she said to me she had heard a quote that she loved, that said, ‘There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.’”
Um. Sorry Taylor, but personally I don’t think Tina and Amy can go to hell for making a quip at you. They weren’t the first to do so and they probably won’t be the last, but the ever-so-classy Amy Poehler returned her comment with the following:
“Aw, I feel bad if she was upset. I am a feminist and she is a young and talented girl. That being said, I do agree I am going to hell. But for other reasons. Mostly boring tax stuff. “
