Mascara Painting

I'm thinking this is the perfect thing to try when my mascara tube kinda dries up and I can't use it anymore but there is still good stuff in there. Waste not, want not. Plus I love this song and Bette Davis.

Fearless Video

Awesome video! I love the way it's shot and all the mixed media elements. Not to mention, Taylor Swift looks like an amazing performer. I'm a big fan but I won't ever going to a live concert, most likely, so this is the right amount of insight.

The most important things...

Saw this on the RISD campus today while I was walking around during the hurricane watch... so true

Video Phone

one of my favorite videos of the year. I love all the outfits and the dance rift in the middle with Lady Gaga.

I want to apply this idea to some fund raising...

Uniform Project Picture Book from The Uniform Project on Vimeo.

I love this project so much! It's heading into it's second year. I want to design my own little black dress to do this with. The two focuses I would like to donate to are:
--Education in Africa
Check out the documentary, A Small Act, which is about The Hilde Back Foundation
--Cancer Research

Are you fund raising for anything in your community?  Let me know for what and how!

How to be Alone

Starting my own business means I send a lot of time solo working and traveling.  But since my days of living in Tokyo when I was 17, I've cherished my alone time.  Here's a poem/video that pretty much sums up all the great things about and to do when being solo.
