Sometimes I do tune out lyrics.

Finally! Another fashion design! Oh dear, the thing is that when I designed this, I was definitely listening to one of those “guilty pleasure songs”…. Up out my face by Mariah Carey and ft. Nicki Minaj.

I know! I know! intense stuff… Laugh out loud.

But I guess listening to Mariah is better that than feeling down. Anything that ‘ll make me want to dance is welcomed in my iPod. I know that was the only thing that would make my mom smile after a hard day of work; when I would turn on some happy music on and dance with her until she had laughed enough that I knew it would end up as a permanent smile (even if only with the eyes).

The design is quite elegant in my opinion. Definitely contemporary, but I think it has potential to be great. Love the color combo so much! It has been one of my favorite color combinations for like 10 yrs… I recall saying that I wanted to paint my room these exact same colors, including the hints of silver.

Hope you all enjoy:

Just a really pretty design

Last week, the amazing Karl Lagerfeld’s Guide to Life made a post that contained the following phrase:

These words were so great that right after I read them they sparked inspiration to sketch the design below.

I very rarely will design something as literally “pretty” as this. I kinda shocked myself!  Enjoy…And as usual… I must leave you with some song lyrics (poetry) that I have been loving lately… This time being, old-school Shakira singing “Te necesito”… This song brings back memories from when I was in first grade, and I learned to listen to this music because my dad’s secretary would listen to it, and she got me hooked on Shakira’s “pies descalzos” album….

Anyways… Here are the translated lyrics….

Shakira- “Te necesito”/ “I need you”

Yes, the daily rain
has increased its level…
Now music doesn’t seem to,
Have the same effect that used to.

Maybe I’ve learned too much
in such a little and short amount of time…
That I don’t even know what language I speak,
or which candles I carry,
Inside this burial

I feel that I’ve lost all strength now,
To jump and grab the sun.
And no matter how much I try,
I can’t even hear my own voice.

I don’t know if I’ve lived ten thousand days,
or one day ten thousand times…
But I now add you to my story,
wanting to change my loss,
for better things…

I need you, I need you my love
wherever you are now
I need all your warmth.
I need you, I need you my love
‘cuz you are part of me
I need you right here
‘cuz I can’t live without you
I never learned how…

And I now I feel lost,
Like a needle inside a hay stack.
Like quicksand,
I submerge in my loneliness.

I don’t know if I’ve lived ten thousand days,
or one day ten thousand times…
and I add you to my story,
wanting to change my loss
for better things…

I need you, I need you my love
wherever you are now
I need all your warmth.
I need you, I need you my love
‘cuz you are part of me
I need you right here
‘cuz I can’t live without you
I never learned how…

Swimming through immoderation, as a consequence of leaders going beyond sufficient and permitted limits.

I personally think it would be fantastic if Gaga wore a Tiny Ventriloquist Obama hat.

This is a day without
A trace of reason
No matter where you turn

And the walls will fall
Affirming nothing
So what’s it all about?

Call on your brightest star
Or play your hand as it lays
Wounds always speak too loud

Get along for a while
Citizen you will see
How the innocent are bound to the damn
What is, just is, I know
So we’re trapped by answers
Love haunts to the end

Are we all to ride
The edge of nothing?
Shake hands with fighting eyes

And if they don’t know
The heart is stopping
Cause everyone is right

Get along for awhile
Citizen you will see
How the innocent are bound to the damn
What is, just is, I know
So we’re trapped by answers
Love haunts to the end

From the moment that we’re born
Till we’re old and tired
Do we ever know people?

From the moment that were born
Till we’re old and tired
Do we ever know people?
