Why I want to...

 Why I want to do what the hell I want to do...

Why not? Who is going to stop me? Why do I need them to tell me who should I be or what should I do? The world is mine as well as yours, so why should I do what is appropriate in your world. We are just two entities crossing routes that we have crossed before, and I am pretty sure, I did not listen to you then.. so why listen now? 
However, I appreciate the love :)

My happiness matters to me of course and they are trying to deprive my elation by their desolation.

*Change of thought*

I want to try something different that I have never tried before. I hear whispers about, celebrities do it, and I think it would help me calm down my jitteriness. Meditation of course.. with the cooky-ness I deal with the every day drama in New York... I sometimes need to sit down and block everything and everyone out.

NYC Travels...

 I got to tell you even though now I have a little more time on my hands, it still feels like there aren't enough hours in a day. I can't wait for the warm weather to hit because by that time I will definitely have all the time in the world to do what I had dreamt to do. And that is photography, I want to see how good I can get at this... just for a new hobby. This is will be a GREAT year for me and for you as well. 13... believe it or not, is my lucky number. It always has been, I was born on April 13th (Maybe that is why I believe so) and for some reason on most years land on Friday the 13th. 2013 is going to be the year I find myself as Sade.

Black & Olive Jewelry Update

1. Serpentine Stud Earrings                                                          2. Jasper Stud Earrings 


I am trying to expand my creative capacity. I don't just want to make bracelets; I would love to make earrings and necklaces too. Right now it is just a bit of a challenge for me because I have never done this before. Last year I ordered a couple of pieces that I have not even touched because I just didn't know what to do with them. So I turned them into these beautiful stone earrings, which I am even wearing myself. Stub earrings are my favorite because they are simple and versatile and sometimes I just like less clutter around my face.

Getting use to...

Frigid weather has kept me in but the longer I stay inside the more I get antsy. Winter is the season of enchantment however it is not my favorite. Though the longer I live here in New York the more I get use to the cold but somehow my body just cannot adjust...

Moving along...

The journey to the end begins again. I am back in school and already I am holding out my hand for my degree! (Gimme!)I am greedy as of right now. Waking up everyday to go sit in a classroom can be a drag however soothing at the same time. Because I would be hanging myself with toilet paper if I were at home doing nothing. So pardon me for complaining, I should know better, there are children in this world that can't even get an education. And here am being ungrateful! 

Anyway, lets get on to the goods. I am making a promise to myself to explore more of my city. Once I actually purchase a good enough camera I am certain I would be more determined to get out more. Until then... I want to tell you about these wedged boots by Steve Madden called Thronne. Adore! I purchased it last year and threw it at the bottom of my closet to never see again until this weekend. The chestnut color is so divine it goes with just about anything. So I paired it up with a pair of boyfriend jeans from Levi's, an oversized button up blouse and a thick knit. 

Thanks for reading!
