Goodie two shoes...

Their are some people that I can't hang out with, maybe we just don't click or maybe your not the vibe I'm
Looking for? Maybe I don't have time to make you see life the way I do and deal with the giving and giving to something which sucks my energy instead of what is magnetically & synchronized. 
I do what I do bc I choose to. You don't need to judge it and u may not understand it but I do things and I win some and I lose some and in the end I gain more from what I do that if I didn't. I am at a place where I appreciate me and I'm the one who really always needed to. As looking for approval from others never covers everyone and you won't be happy. We do things to feel better about ourselves and that has to do with getting closer to your dream and this is your journey nobody else's yet don't interfere w others' instead it's about boosting one another. Goodnight and Goodlife are our friends, let's keep it that way. ;)

Wink or smile it's all worthwhile...

It's a beautiful world...
All the people with their small minds...
Speaking about whatever with all they know
Like Might!
Mighty Mouse in the House!
All the people little people, big people, all types of people with their strange stories...
The stories make them they
The story makes me me
Your story is all U
U beautiful thing U
The world is full of stories and people with them and that's all they know. 
The story makes me me 
That story makes u u
That story makes her SHE 
THATS THE REASON WHY we are we
Change the story 
Change your life
Look at things with different eyes!
Notice that the story doesn't do u justice! 
Notice that your better than it
That u don't need to keep telling the same story
The same story is not a story it's a FIB
ITS A LIE ITS A TRIP!
the true story is that u have always been cared for. 
That u are LOVED.
That this is all it all is
We will all love u, no matter who it is.

Take this easy, with a grain of Salt

Salty Sea
see the hope...

Your no wonder 
Why we sink
Start to think
Take a BRINK! 

;)

Right on Time...

We Gota make life what we want it to be instead of sitting around complaining about it, we Gota get out there with the right attitude and make some of those dream changes! Motivated to make a new mark everyday is our chance! 
We all should study the stars, find things to knock off your bucket list every week, the world is your playground, the sky is the ever changing backdrop, the animals our friends, the other humans our brothers and sisters! 
Let's help one another, inspire each other, teach, reach out! 
Everyone can use a hug, a thoughtful text, a handwritten card, a bouquet of flowers can brings ten up any room. We can live in abundance if we share it and use our resources properly. Things can be just as we dream them up to be, our days all splendid, relaxing, progressive, and forgiving and all together balanced. Let's massage the message in tenderly when we need to communicate. We are here to change the world and every day is a new chance to start fresh ;) with love I am a believer and with softness and grace we can laugh at the past as we dance ourselves into the night as we connect and grow and shine we together are united, when we are ONE we know we won but only together can we get there bc like a missing puzzle piece we need each other to find peace. Like our finger prints a labyrinth of code. Wishing you a warm welcome, your right where you need to be. Love YOURSELF first then find yourself, we can't wait to see you shine your right on time.

High Hopes...

It's a lot of pressure and perhaps imagination and together it can build into a fairytale story that you dream of but you also know that the only way this is going to happen right is if I make it happen right and what's right and what's wrong and who writes this crap anyway? I can't stand this girl but I love her too fyi. 
I hate making anybody upset, not supposed to happen, sucks. My feeling tonight is with strong desire to exemplify some GREAT advancement lol. OMG so over myself Ahh! I do this for fun to find some any answer in me, in the humanity that I choose to express. It's all quite comical yet I really wish the world was a better place l feel the pressure to be better, way better, I'm not even that close to what I envision for the future. I feel a bit rejected tonight by the way it's q strong word I know but I'm ok, I'm super strong, like a shield of armer. I want to make the world a better place and in a greater way, because we can..

Tuesday, September 29, 2015

I was living in a moment where I had a complete and total mess of my passwords, of my basic needs, of the technology that was moving faster than even that of high speed... and i looked good like I was keeping up bc I was, bc I was in the timeless illusion where in some time I spent endless hours just simply even just doing THAT... and that was able to be quick, like some times it just is, cuz if directionally your challenged, or persisting, gets us close enough and something rude says to post, you think its just like a receipt unaware of how to feed, all the ones u wish u could, if it would then we would drop concern. the greater than and less than symbol to take the place of the #s and so now a scatter design screen saver & a hacker option to make the keys upside down or backwards. or as a design option pixels in the form of these keys at hand. like a huge EAR and the hashtag as an earing, an oversize comma, an X * ... exclamation point earrings in fine gold designed by a tattoo artist... thats what I'm talking about... a cool party w complementary tats in keyboard styles. % percentage pants, fwd and backward symbol on a T means twirl, pause pants! best pants ever. to me its more about what tape you use... I think the stapler could be an asterix, at least. tough tinfoil, i wanna be that person, i know its not right but dimensions are everything. lets wrap a rock in it!!!!! GET IT... RAP & ROCK !!!! come together.... The apple logo isn't ok on my desktop like i don't have to announce that I'm on Facebook! like, just like that, is that ok? Hansel and Gretel dropped some food on the path to be found... I still like the idea of something that hangs and is a light fixture but is also your jewelry holder or accessory holder per se.. and lets even say a vase somewhere out of respect for who u know is coming and who you want around and who else is even missing bc i know I'm missing somebody! when you buy a lighter it doesn't say how many times its supposed to bring u fire... if u knew you would value the LISTEN.... i want to be heard, I want to hear soon after... Your not allowed to chase after this fool, you can skip that chapter... Your a capital letter to be able to pause and breathe, to be able to stop and think, to be able to shift direction that that you see... bold lettering, prefer this thinning... symbolic powers appearing... hashtags italic since the very very beginning, i don't know why i notice but this is fwahhahaha but wait hold up...!!! THATS WHY I loved these ppl who designed characters out of computer designs.. like CASETTE PLAYA lol "but we like it when we are spinning in his grin..." thats a crazy weird great song... loopk at her??? wait,,, but thats... idk i mean im not that self consumed,,,, really I'm not im not tho... when we feel... feel oh uncomfortable we don't need the wheel... if we can pick it up... and carry it... and drag it, perhaps,... u know.... the way u might need to... sometime... u might need to... at the airport... i always thing of that place... how we are trying to get somewhere I AM SHOWING THE SOFT>>> like like like like is so soft like pillows like pillowsssss IN ENGLISH... We don't say much of what... well, we repeat words... we repeat words... its ok... SBTRKT should win a Grammy. The tacks that go into cork... they are something else... so is the cork... the tape... the double sided one... that... if we can make lighters... oh my MASTERCARD Tape feeling pretty equipped Ya'll.... you know what? cut corners... make use of whats already here...the tacks for the cork... make backs for it... i want for my leather jacket... make make make it,,, lets go ppl.. tape... the nails... Im OK I dont wanna let this thing cut me off... u know? have u been to jail? have u been thrown off Twitter??? Have you I agree with ASRA... Sara, Asra... its typo chang well,,,, soon.... life si too short! and the opposite of IS too short is SI... SO IM RIGHT! Life is too short...

Take Care...

I just videod myself talking for say 20mins... It's cuz writing would be way too much, way too much. I wouldn't wana put u through all that LLL. Instead of LOL I might just say LALALA :) looks more refreshing and it's understandable! 
I can't believe how time slips away... I can't! I guess we are living in the future but I want kinetic energy to charge my phone already so I'm in my idea of the past still LALALA  no, that didn't work. Lol
Spent the night with my mom at a Jazz club Monday nights at the Sofitel is pretty special with Grammy award winning artists like this one dude was insane... Sadly I forgot his name but u can find out... I know u can. 
Taryn Manning was there, I found some dude she was with' phone bc I sat in a 'RESERVED' chair which was huge and covered in velvet, it did feel too good to be true, totally... But I saw her way later and she was with the guy... Who cares anyway, I kinda want to mention the part where I should have introduced myself and given her my card and told her I would customize her a bag... She is a celebrity... Just when I looked at her while she was singing, she closed her eyes and kept singing... So I never felt to try again... I'm shy in a way... U know what? It's like ppl on the st don't look at each other... It's a think I did in NYC to give ppl their SPACE! And now I'm interpreting it differently altogether, it also happens when I'm vending!!!!!! So I'm vending my bags, the bags! Our bags! The beautiful TAMBONITA bags!!!! Handmade with so much love from an artist collective!!!! And I notice that sometimes pls eyes are just looking for what they are looking for! So say, I need a T-shirt to wear tonight... My eyes will scan the streets and only look for that and leave everything else which is allllll hard work for all types of people, artists, brands trying to get your attentions. Etc! And you are just going to draw in what u have told yourself your looking for! That's why being aimless and getting somewhere is in response to your inner core alignment unfortunately it's not always a pleasant outcome! But sometimes with setting INTENTIONS!!! U MANIFEST!!! What u are REALLY WHOLEHEARTEDLY LOOKING FOR! I hope we all find ourselves and the life we wish become REAL, it's almost there... We just have to embellish it and support the things that are! I made a super long like 20min video of me talking which I would like to create a good SETUP for in my house to do more often... I just want to talk sometimes and I really do find comfort in writing... I have a lot to learn and better richer more fabulous things to say but underneath it all... When u have nothing left at all... When I had NOTHING left at all... I saw beauty in what my desperation was and my ultimate dream for myself and this world really stemmed from that... I went to the bottom. I described what the dream was from THERE... And then it happened, just like that... One foot in front of the other and that's the reason how everyone and everything is wherever it is. I'm an independent type of girl that really loves people and being a part of stuff, I respect ppl, I love ppl, I contribute, I don't mean to really hurt anybody, I act out of impulse maybe too often but I do it bc I can and its fun... I think life is too short! I think the days are getting shorter and time keeps on slippin' so I don't care about making a total fool of myself bc their is way more good that outweighs the bad in me, believe me. It's bc my parents are great, my brother my sister, my grandmother sososososo my grandma! All my grandparents were GREAT! My dads grandpa worked in marble... I love rocks and healing stones and he was an architect! I think I got a lot from that visual creative part, my dads mom Bita was a piano teacher amoungst many other things... She was so good with children, me, I spent so much time laughing and singing and playing and learning Spanish childhood games with her... And my cousins. My brother is so intelligent... He's a Gemini... I love him to death and just want him to soften for ME, for me only and whoever his wife;). My sister so full of talent is a wonderful mother of two now, her kids go to show who she IS, her determination, discipline (I'm lacking some) her in the kitchen! She is perfection, she also needs to soften up. My parents are high strung, passionate, political, open-minded! They have taught me so much! I am the one who is softest, right in the middle! And then others think I am the one w hard edges? To me that's funny. I am super soft, I am feminine, I am silly, goofy, full of flaws but NOT! Everything can be fixed... Should we fix it all is the question??? Lol! 
I want to pour my love into the world so it's so full it bursts and it pulses with harmony! :)

Oh, good night. 

Take care ok?

Take care.

Let us be...

The Angels are trying r communicate with us all... We are sitting in our cars in traffic and it's just not right... Let us pray! Let us run through the grassy hills under the sun and lay happily under the moonlight with nothing to say. <3 Let us play for peace, let us love ourselves enough that it over flows onto others, let us speak the truth with only words of bountiful beauty and wisdom, let us be happy with little and having it all by sharing, let us come together as one, let us learn who we are, what we need to be, and shedding our skin of the past, let us live in the now and step our next foot gently knowing what grace is and keeping balance on our exquisite invisible crown. Let it be.

Hello Hello Echo Echo...

It's almost midnight and I'm almost asleep...sometimes, many times, this was too early for bed... I'm getting closer to who I want to be. I put a minted clay mask on my face as I lay in bed and pet little Roxy, it's like my fingers are always tied to either work, driving or of course this phone. I think she's started to give me the eye every time I'm on it... Like as if I've been her in another life and I remember what it must feel like to be a dog and always see your stupid owner typing away at thei little device and I prayed she'd get off it LOL. I have an evil eye necklace staring down at me hung on a wall next to my bed that my Godfather gave me, I hope it's working. Sometimes I can feel other ppl quite strong, like feel people's energy wo even having to talk to them. I know it's possible BC it's been quite coincidental. Like I imagine something BC I feel it and it turns out to be right on point: I already know what ppl MUST think of me BC all they have to judge is what I literally put out there... Sometimes I wonder just how much they know. It doesn't bother me, it's just interesting to wonder about things. Like everyone has their own perspective but judging doesn't really work BC one day can be good and another can be bad... U can't say I'm good or I'm bad. I'm both! Lol so Are You! I've been drawn to being happy, to just go on my direction, that what I'm doing is my calling, that at least I'm doing a lot and that I like what I'm doing I just need to pair up with somebody who believes in this as much as I do. "It takes a village" Still no ticket in hand but I'm determined to make it out there because next year I need to make an installation piece for 2016 and I envision it so MAJESTIC! Like everything about it is going to be beautiful... I'm just having a little problems with choosing my exact materials. 
This year I'm going to be camped in the outskirts and going to create my little haven. I'm bringing my car, tent, an area rug, I have a chandelier made of old mother of pearl looking circular shells some of it already broken from rattling in the wind of a flea market. I want to bring a piece of my chain art and will probably get some help from the artists as a piece of art they helped create for the 2015 Burn! I have to jazz up my car too somehow. I hope my brother makes it, I don't know what he'll think of it and my prancing around in costume but he'll just have to see it to believe it LOL. I have nothing to hide, I just want to find the connections that make life worth living. Ppl you appreciate and to be appreciated  is all. Classes, worshops, TED talks, ART, hugs, weather changes, bike riding, I'm for it all... I'm just more experienced now and I will take what I want, leave what I don't, leave the place better than how I found it and make sure to contribute to the greater good of humanity by actually being me instead of somebody else. 
Endlessly grateful for the listening ear, if I yell it too loud it echoed and bounced back at me... So this way it's silent and only a thought and once a thought is thought it's like a purge is it not? We'll see... Love always, Tammy

It's going to be OK...

So the friggin merge of everything like a soup, what's it lookin like? I'm talking to the all seeing eye which is us, what do we think it looks like and how that affects us... 

It's really bad, it's really bad I know... I know I know I know... I can't think about the past now, not now... But so why is that how we find truth in a story? We say well it all started like this... Bla bla and make a point to pick a side. The side we pick depends on the whole story... What if the whole story ... What if U knew these ppl before U actually "got to know them" U didn't have to go through that bc it was something that U could see already happen like in a movie... Movies are pretty amazing, painting pictures of stories in our heads like that. But my pictures mine and yours your bits a pieces of the full spectrum. Hmm. I'd consider myself bold. But not bc I really really AAM bc you can get to know that I'm kinda soft but can be mean I guess and love people like all this is like a puzzle, I am a puzzle U r a puzzle we are a puzzle and all the pieces are everywhere and we start constructing ourselves out of this mess in order to clean it up and make sense of it like as if every single letter is out there in the sky to choose from and I'm typing these very ones... That is so weird to me and that I am writing as I'm actually thinking and that I have shown U my ugly thoughts even. Like who does what? Who would like think it's ok to like let go and let go LOL like leg go... I saw I missed spelled let go and I fixed it then wrote it for U again... So that yes U can see that leg go fits in a bit too. In deed it does. Feels like we just climbed a mountain bc it was a mountain of truth. That's all I'm ok about lol. That sometimes that's the fundamental part. And then to remember that we all pop in and out of here... Of each others presence. The best is that person whom U never want to leave their side. I feel like I'm 2 ppl and w ROXY we are like 8 total... Up at 9am tomorrow I had that strong coffee again! And I'm just pumped about life being more of a game now lol k catch YA later lol -)

Revolutionary IDEA...

I think I have come up with an idea that could save the world! Ok so here it is.. In our own kitchens we have a trash, sometimes two one for recycling and sometimes even more than that. I think it would be cool to have a trash machine for each type of material such as a plastic trash machine that when U throw away your plastics it melts it and also is the material you yourself can use when 3D printing something you need for your home such as plastic utensils or plates let's say so the same goes with the aluminum section of machine where the aluminum melts to be able to 3D print anything for you in your recycled aluminum! Same with paper! If u recycle all your junk mail and paper work it can act as the recycled paper U can then print your new files on! If homes, buildings, communities did this we would be less stripping the Earth of new materials and creating less overall waste. We will continue to buy new but it would allow us to live in the future where we can 3D print our own designs by companies and continuously melt and reuse our material waste. Like compost with food but also for glass and all the forms of materials so that we can be free to print necessary objects on a daily basis without leaving our home by simply buying online and using the material that we have collected as waste to re-use. Amen!

Love Your Life, IT LOVES YOU BACK

Hello Citizens of HUMANITY! and whoever else can Reead... I am "happy go lucky" and not in an egotistical way, i reassure you... I DO KNOW what to do... I know whats right and whats wrong in Fact... I make mistakes like we all do... and I pick myself back up, close and open my eyes every so often and act on what we got... like improv! We are quite similar you see ;) thats why you can't think anything less of anybody else... bc NOBODY NOBODY is PERFECT PERFECT... and so is this life! like a piece of clay in your hand! and that clay can have a hot day and melt a bit and cooler temp and harden and your nervous hand can hold it hard and mush it or can be gentle with it and there you go... now you got the handle of it... to stay steady with it is something YOU need to remind yourself to do and sometimes you loose TOUCH with reality, with yourself,,, you might blame the cause but your the one holding that piece of clay in YOUR hand! you can't Blame anybody for that! lol its a pretty good analogy that NO i did not steal from anywhere and make it mine! NO I just felt like sharing that as I wrote and it occurred to me after a few of these first sentences... Idk why but Clay occurred to me and then it worked... just like a lot of things... and a lot of others don't... work. But I'm just trying to talk bc a lot of times Ive spoken about not cool context stuff and there I go having a cool context thing,.. never prepared may I add... Being prepared is part of being a great piece of clay in the hands of GOD... the right things are aligned to your favor... I like to remind you that we are all able to be prepared and non prepared but that its the effort and attempt at being THERE that does you the greatest... so wanting it and knowing what you want needs to be very clear... knowing what you want to make out of this clay can come from the unknowing and the unknowing PLAYING part allows you to feel around with what you GOT. You might have it all... you might think you do... but for example your in your room,,, your limited to whats in your room... like for a photo,,, for its background lol. or whats in the room to do, you can sleep, watch TV, organize your clothes again, talk on the phone, whatever! But if you leave your room... you have more options!!!!! :) so is the same for your bank account and all the things that may limit you. BUT lets remember that instead of focusing on your LIMITATIONS you need to THINK about what YOU DO HAVE... if you focus there you will be rewarded. thats a simple truth. a simple truth of GRATITUDE First off that if you can do Just that you will be rewarded triple fold in life, its almost guaranteed but is not an instant gratification type of gesture... so don't be foolish to think life itself is Fooled ;) OK so now, we are GreatFULL... once we are feeling that like a smile that won't go away even if you try to hold it in... then this funny thing happens... your stars may be aligned and your wishes might be reachable and your time and energy directed and working towards that goal will get clearer over time and things will open like pages turning in a book as you actually read it through... you are actually reading and digesting the words and pages and visuals and lessons of life and they are developing and unfolding the rest to you as each second of time and desire towards that goal goes by... I am happy your still here to read this bc that means you want to know what happens next, as you should. Love this game... Didn't always. Its not a steady path... It never will be always more to learn and never enough but also plenty and I don't need a thing Its what we make of it that matters I reach out to you as you reach out to me... Love Your Life, IT LOVES YOU BACK

Fashion Forecasting Interview...

I would love to help since answering these questions is also very interesting to me. Trends to me are so interesting too. Here are the questions: 1. Who creates trends? 2. Are there clear patterns that trends follow, or do they follow more of a random trajectory? 3. How do trend-forecasters predict future trends? 4. How do designers consistently appeal to the fashion-informed public? (How do they stay relevant and successful?) 5. Are trends accessible to all socioeconomic levels today? 6. What role does social media (Instagram, Pinterest, etc.) play in showing trends? 7. Do trends tend to solely be creative decisions by designers, or do designers pay attention to what their customers like and don't like when creating garments? (And finally, the big kahuna) 8. Is a person's decision to wear a particular outfit dictated by what is available to them in terms of trends? Is fashion a way for people to stand out from the crowd and show their own personal identity, or is it a way to conform with other people when following trends? 1. Trends emerge from different places, they can trickle down from designers to the street or up from the streets to designers. The world is like Pandoras Box, some stuff we haven't seen in a while laying at the bottom of the box and when we pull it out to see again we feel its new again. Trends are created when that idea in a color or silhouette or textile or whatever is brought to light again by one and then a few it submerges. THERE are big trends and micro trends so many trends happening in the way we dress to the way we consume to the way we even think etc. It acts like a movement. Stylists help designers when they have a fashion show add on-trend items bc the mass is inspired by whats new and fresh or an innovative way of dressing. Its like having a 6th sense, I believe stylists and designers and artists many times have this job that tries to find that feeling, what does the customer want? what excites them? they want to find this so discovering something "new" (or from the past & at the right time) is an incentive to buy. Its also like rebellion. THERE isn't one source for who creates trends. It's like the effect of that story where THERE were these monkeys on one island and they did something new and then on another island it started happening too with out each other knowing about it. Would be interesting for you to find this type of example. 2. I do see Patterns in trends, part of keeping things fresh in fashion is for the pattern to jump to the least expected thing bc thats what keeps it like the Pandoras Box effect. So we may do pink hair is on trend and then we see blue hair on trend that jump from one extreme to the other in color but we also see young people doing a gray hair to look bc coloring your hair in colors is something young and the opposite of young is old so we also have that extreme, like a choice of what ppl rather say. "respect me" vs "I'm so wild and fun". The patterns aren't clear though, No... that has everything to do with everything. Sometimes I have seen trends be pushed onto the market and people don't respond well to them and they aren't seen worn on the streets. I can't remember an example of this in my head now but it has happened bc the consumers themselves many times don't want to be treated like sheep, they each have their choice and they can reject trends as much as consume them. 3. I haven't worked for a big trend forecasting company but have studied it in school and have a special gift that I can feel what drives trends and it's like art. It's like seeing patterns of repetition and when you see something trend worthy it could be innovation or what consumers need or a way to please a customer that was ignored even. I think of the skinny jeans, the leggings and then we want to branch out of that and you see more people wearing a looser pant... like we got tired of the monotonous silhouette. or making the Birkenstock sample chic again it would have never been something I could predict before it happened but once I saw it there, I saw how THERE was almost a sense of humor to the way I could look at it differently this time. It's a feeling! It's a necessity! It is like a magnetic force haha! Colors have an energy to them, like everything else in fashion speaks volumes like a painting would, a line! It can be subtle or massive! I read lots of magazines, study the shows, look at street style, go out to places, trade shows, festivals, concerts, shopping, flea markets, where people who like fashion go... I absorb it all and then feel like since I'm right there with it I can call out who is going to be on the next cover of Vogue wearing what designer and in what color or with whatever trend on. It's being at the forefront and cusp of the youth... the youth follows more trends and appreciates and experiments with them more. Older people are more conformed. I find trends by doing a lot of research. 4. Designers DO get more exposure when they create that on-trend item or collection. Designers also have to stay true to themselves and please their customer/market so they have to choose trends that would be worn by their customer. Designers incorporate trends into their collection... I have a line of bags, I am a stylist turned designer who has also worked styling and branding companies and trend forecasting is a part of what I offer. Fashion Forecasting and styling go hand in hand... for my line of bags I used glitter and metallics and chain, to create my product bc I know that it appeals to a market bc it involves a trend, its an exciting product. @TAMBONITAbags I also created my line of bags to be Made in LA, by an artist collective... this references a trend in how people purchase, giving them the incentive of supporting artists and supporting our community. Trends are everywhere. 5. Trends are not for everyone but they affect everyone I would say. Trends are copied, taken from designers and brought to the masses, to fill that demand. 6. Social Media plays an important role in spreading that information and receiving information faster than ever before. Now trends are copied even faster too. Social media is playing a huge role in seeing a unity in what is worn by fashion lovers. Bloggers are almost as important as designers themselves, they are so influential that they are steering the wheel of the fashion industry like a muse might. I use social media a lot to find trends easily in this day and age. It's all there without me having to go anywhere I can see the fashion shows, celebrities, events, street style, bloggers, all of it saturating us with image and ideas to consume. When people keep seeing all the cool people wearing such they make the choice to want it for themselves and when they do they may be conforming but they are also filling a gap within them. psychologically its many things and depends on what exactly... It's just something that works and is timely. 7. Designers do pay attention to what worked in a previous collection and stay true to that demand. They use that information to tweak and re fresh garments for customers to purchase again. People have to fill the gaps that exist in their closets! If they keep seeing things that they already own their isn't anything they need to buy! Thats why what works is also easily merged with a trend like done in a new color or with a change or adding a detail to make new again. Designers are just trying to survive, hit their marks by filling a demand while doing their art. A good designer knows how to do this successfully and get it to market is the other half of the equation. 8. I think that wearing ON TREND outfits are a reflection in itself of what type of person you are... to me it says fashionable more than conformed. It is a way to conform but depending on what trend u choose... If you wana look Rock n Roll you know to wear a t-shirt and a leather jacket, thats you expressing yourself too, just bc it has been done a million times doesn't only say "follower". Being well put together.... let us say you have one girl who is put together w a super trendy look and another very well dressed in a not trendy look... the non trendy girl therefore looks more classic, that is also looking conformed! so what would somebody need to wear to look pulled together but not conformed and still acceptable? THAT would be original and that might be starting a new trend ;) In the end we want to be liked, we want to be accepted, we want to be comfortable, we want the same things... but we also want to be different, unique and admired,,, so thats the magnetic pull we constantly go through in fashion and style, to find our own place but the goal really should be to look your best. Now, looking your best is both in a french twist AND how you look right when you roll out of bed. Depending on where you are going, the weather, the people your seeing, and what you will be doing... all affect your choice in how you dress. Trends make me happy, and can also suck the life out of me, that's why I'd rather start them than follow them on their coat tails. Back to the question... people might be pushed towards trends but they still have the freedom to make the choice for them. Everything is available to us these days so you can find stores like Zara H&M and Forever 21 be trendy but also carry staple items that are not trendy. Fashion is what you make of it, its a reflection of you. I hope this helps!! Would love to read your finished thesis too! If you are asking more fashion forecasters these questions I wonder if we could share these answers amongst each other. I would love to hear how other fashion forecaster types answered these questions. Is it possible to share that information? Let me know! THERE is so much to discuss. Also, if you are going in this direction and hear about any forecasting conventions and things pls share as I will too! Great questions, feel free to ask me anything else.

Shenanigans

After Dinner at Masa in Echo Park I was so stuffed and exhausted on a Friday night that I began to do some yoga stretches and some pictures were taken... Some of them came out quite good. 
I have realized that Sophia Amoroso is my idol along side Yoko Ono, maybe some Madonna ;) 
Today is a good day. 
Figure out who your idols are, I would love to know so PLS share them with me!

TAMBONITA

Getting your life together is just a series of choices, collectively they turn the steering wheel of the ships direction and like a needle on a compass you want to have your stuff aligned. They said that you would have to make a change, that making the same mistakes in the same pattern of life over and over would give you the same results so the day finally came when everything was spent. All your resources went dry and you had to create a route out of the nothing... as if flying were the only thing to save you... you gave up so deeply on your previous beliefs that dwelling on the issue wasn't going to give you results so you CHANGED... You reached the end and you were finally desperate and ready to take the leap of faith and maybe it was that you felt you had nothing to lose... This brought you to a creative climax :) or the rising action to such an uphill that you went spiraling down in circles... you weren't getting over that hill with the same little red wagon lol you needed to think of a better idea, meet a group of friends to help you, or maybe just chill on the angle and instead help another..? You did this for years. You stayed at the same inclination on this uphill uncomfortable path and at times would have rather dug a hole through to the other side but that only had you even more lost in the darkness not knowing which way was is up or down... so you waited patiently for years attempting this and attempting that... getting used to the fact that nothing really did the magic you hoped for. Until one day, you turned 31, you looked around and people you wanted to be with you on your birthday weren't there, the life you wished for wasn't yet yours, the whole world seemed disappointing! You had the bed snatched from under you! The reality of everything wasn't going to get the best of you bc you were used to the feeling, you now knew not to expect so much... You realized you needed to focus on the things that were right like the new friend that did show up, the feeling that INSIDE of you... you Just Knew that their was something GRAND... that all your frustration was honest and pure and righteous but that you had to make a CHOICE and that choice was to let all the desires and dreams go and that you were just going to love yourself and make yourself happy by making the right choices for yourself and that you were going to begin to be the leader you needed and expected in another.. The next day you were motivated to do things YOUR WAY and in an awesome cool way,,, your way, your rhythm, nothing bugs you at all, your like a walking Angelina Jolie without all the bullshit ;) You just move fwd, you still talk to yourself, tell yourself to be chill, remind yourself to stay humble, u look in the mirror, you try to look your best, you realize you look better than Angie, WOW, (jk) You know all those little human things... u try to do your best... :) Then MAGICALLY you arrive somewhere different bc you held on for so long that you were given this chance of a lifetime... This right then and there is, Ladies and Gentlemen... THE BEGINNING OF YOUR LIFE.... stay posted... -TAM

&&&&....

&"I JUST DETROYED THE WORLD IM LIVING IN"
Worn out and overwhelmed so I took my family camping... Is anything sacred left? safe? 
Their are nearly
100 new GMO fruits and vegetables to be released -& the pipeline- . Gmo Eucalyptus trees are already being grown. There are glow in the dark rabbits & cats. Spermicidal corn. goats that produce lactate spider silk protein web. Salmon that grow 4 times faster. And thousands of other science experiments altering the world around us, mostly for profit, even human genes patented by companies over 1000 human genes... OMG GMO

Salmon in the Ocean and Farmed are both not good for you BC the ocean is full of radiation from Japan and the oil spill of the gulf. Farmed fish are eating GMO food

Russia stops importing GMO corn once they discover the CANCER RISK
Peru's congress approves a GMO Ban
POLAND bands GMO corn & potatoes
"We WANA know what we are eating!"
It's almost like the drug industry... We don't know what's in drugs... Now we don't know what's in food either.
