Style Muse: Alexa Chung

Model..TV Host..Journalist..This is just some of the lines of work that Alexa Chung is known for. Alexa Chung already has a loyal following across the pond as a cheeky TV personality and model. Now the 25-year-old Brit is charming us stateside as the coolest MTV host since Downtown Julie Brown. As with her predecessor, it’s Chung’s irreverent spin on conventional dressing (she wears H&M with Chanel) that’s also leaving quite the impression. “I hate dressing up,” she says. “I never feel like me.” Instead, the self-proclaimed tomboy prefers the more laid-back vibe of her style icon, pop chanteuse Françoise Hardy. “She always looked sexy without wearing ass-skimming or boob-flashing clothes.” Here, Alexa Chung does it her way. -Marie Claire


This Morning as I was looking onto my now new favorite website Lettercult They were posting the new Alphabattle..Here are some of the postings. Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

Rainy Day Fun..

A little late on this..meant to post it on Monday, but at least its not Friday! LOL. Over the weekend I decided to host a Crochet Party. I invited over some of my friends that wanted to learn how to Crochet, we popped open a bottle of red wine and had some delicious treats and crocheted all day. It was such a fun time! Great girl time and I was surprised that EVERYONE there learned how to get their Slip Knot down and their Chain stitches working! hehe! I hope to host another craft party sometime soon! So much fun ladies!

Hopefully Dreams Can Come True..

Hello..Happy Friday!! This morning was kind of a rough morning. Last night I got home and my little yorkie, Skiba, was not acting like himself. So, I took him to the vet today and he has had to be there all day for observation. 😦 My poor little pup I hope that everything is okay. I am sure it will be the doctor thought he might just be dehydrated and constipated, so let’s hope for the best.

So..On a lighter note..I am super excited to be starting ANOTHER online class through Red Velvet Art. This class is about how to start your own online indie business. For those of you that know me personally, I love love making things, but unfortunaltey having a full time job does not allow me to persue every craft project that I would like to make. Through this class it is just another tool from other Indie Artists that pretty much started where I was where they turned their hobby into an reality. I hope that one day I can work for myself and be my own boss. I am so excited to start this class!!! 🙂 Who know’ could be my next adventure!

Happy Weekend!
