Fall semester is finally winding down, and since my workload is a little light this week, I decided to treat myself and my +1 to some midweek partying . I just came back from the DETAILS magazine part at the Terra … Continue reading
It came to a huge surprise that my boyfriend bought me a two strand pearl necklace. He even researched on the authentication of a genuine pearl and everything! I’ve been hinting that I wanted something with pearls just because I’m so jewelry-less nowadays. Plus I like to brand myself as a classic look and pearls are the obvious choice of accessory.
His Christmas present to me is so much more than just a material blessing. It symbolizes so many emotions and personality traits that are found within me. The genuine pearl may look perfect from far away, but each is unique in size and shape. What makes a pearl perfect is the imperfections within it. And I love it. He bought this for me because he knows I like black tie parties and special events, and that he wants me to wear something special. He bought this for me because he knows I’m in love with the 1950’s fashion and all things that are classic. He bought this for me because he knows me. Even more than I know about myself. I know that 40, 50 years down the line, I will be able to wear this necklace again. And I am so thankful to have this man who found a single gift that sums me up entirely.
I can’t wait to wear this on unforgettable nights. I am so thankful for all of my loved ones who has genuinely loved me for me. Merry Christmas everyone!
I’m pretty excited for the holidays and NYE. I got a bunch of fabulous parties to attend and I’m constantly looking at tutorials on how to create the glamour look of old Hollywood. Tomorrow will begin the chain of parties and if it’s not the end of the world, I can try and copy some classic looks.
After figuring out what type of holiday look I’m going for, Kate Moss’s nude-feline-sex face caught me. So with fingers crossed, let’s hope my make-up turns out that way. Here’s a tutorial that I found on Refinery 29 that I’m going to try and follow.
I’ll upload some pics soon so you can see the results. Lulu will also be with me tomorrow night, so i’m guessing we’re partying it up SimpleStella style. That means, all out, but still classy, dancing and partying. Teehee. If you’re in the Bay Area, party it up in SF! It’s wayyy too pretty to stay at home! -Daisy

Yay, finally some good weather, perfect enough to test out my Nikon camera. I was playing around with the ISO along with the shutter speed today and here are my results with Daisy’s favs in her closet.
I la la looooove the picture above. Not only are the colors vibrant but the picture just tells a story, “could Daisy be waiting for Mr. Newark?”
I think I’ll call the black and white picture “130”. I didn’t quite fancy this picture so much not until I saw this on the screen daddy Mac.
Don’t stop, keep shooting! Some of the best photos were taken one after the other. In doing so, you’ll capture those natural poses and a pretty smile :) Well, that’s what I’ve learned today.
Once I get the hang of this, I’ll post what was used to capture the photos but until then “SAY HELLO TO MY LITTLE FRIEND…”
