Fur hoods and cloudy skies

Now that midterms is over I can get back to feeling like a normal human being for a few weeks then turn into a ball of stress again for finals.

Here's a taste of what I cover over on my blog. I would call my blog a lifestyle blog. Sure, I normally post my "outfit of the day" photos but it's not necessarily around just fashion. I blog about my life. I blog about my family, friends, food, and fashion. I like it call it my 4 F's. Seriously, these 4 F's are all I need in life.

Outfit of the day:
Parka: Hollister
Shirt: BDG
Scarf: Forever21
Leggings: American Apparel
Sunglasses: Ray Ban
Handbag: Rebecca Minkoff
Boots: dav

Moving on,
Los Angeles is on the random and weird weather mode again.
It was very grey, cloudy, and sprinkly today.
But on a good note, (1) I finally discovered that not-a-secret underground parking below the loft today!
It's not a secret but apparently not many of us know about it so I am sharing it with you all!
LITERALLY, this parking is right below the loft so if you don't feel like parking at another lot since most of us do because the FIDM underground parking is full after 7:15/7:30am, go ahead and park under the loft! There's an elevator underground too that takes you right up to the 12th floor! Perfecto!
(2) The view from the loft is quite the sight. Then again, when you're on the top of any building, looking under at the world is quite amusing.
(3 & 4) If I were to ever get into a car accident I swear, it'd be from one of the following: eating, changing clothes, or taking photos of the sky.
(5) I got really sick of eating NutriGrain bars for the past few months so when I went to Costco this past week and they were offering samples of these Quacker Oats life bars I was blown away! Cinnamon-y goodness in a bar on-the-go!

I know I promised to blog a post a week but bare with me! I also have so much footage to edit to compose several videos so stay tuned!

xo, Anna


See you @ Debut 2011

So excited!!!

The FIDM Debut Fashion Show is a show you certainly do not want to miss!
I have been attending The FIDM Debut Fashion show (almost) every year.
I have to say my first time was most exciting.
I was able to get the VIP ticket my first year at FIDM and the privelges of the VIP membership was a free gift bag along with a pre-show party that had a chocolate fountain, photo booth, food, drinks, and more freebies!
I wasn't able to attend last year due to (I forgot what) but I am very ectastic to be going again this year.

I will be reporting from the show (live) so follow me on Twitter if you cannot make the show and want to live it through me, haha :P
I will also be recording the show (cross your fingers and toes for me that I get a good seat) and taking photographs as well.
If you are attending and you happen to see me, don't hesitate to say hello and let's take a photo together! I would love to meet you fellow readers who are current students! Sadly for us FIDM students who have class once a week it's hard to meet new people and stay friends with our classmates!

So don't wait, go get your ticket now because they run out quick!

P.s. We're limited to only 1 ticket per student this year. In the past we were able to at least get 2? 1 for ourself and 1 for a guest but I guess they're really making it strict this year.

Midterms Mayhem

*Where I spent most of my night until I migrated to my couch around 4am
*A few shots of my project
*The bowl of Kettle Popcorn that kept me company
*Quaker Oats LIFE bar in other words, my on-the-go breakfast
*What we did today in class
*My outfit of the day, read more over at my blog
*A fascinating classmate who changed from oxfords to heels in the shuttle before arriving at the FIDM main campus..
*Photo booth photos
*The American Heart Association held a mini Lunch N' Learn conference today in Student Activities.

So I pulled an all nighter last night. Feb 8/Feb 9. Perfected my midterms project and studied for the exam. Took a tiny nap from 5:30am-6:00am and from there I had to take my sister to school and off to Downtown LA I went. I wasn't too tired but coming home never felt so good.

Time for a confession. I'll be honest, I never tried hard in school or give it my all in high school. My only 4.0 gpa was back in the 4th grade and from that period on until high school I never bothered to do it again. That all changed when I arrived at FIDM. I found myself buried in my work and a lot has to do with my love for what I'm learning at FIDM. I don't mind staying up all night starring at my computer screen drawing designs or brushing my skin against silk fabric, over and over again until all the silk fibers are over my clothes. This is what I want to do and this is where I want to be. It's true that no matter how hard your job gets, if you love it, it doesn't seem hard at all.
