winter break I

For the first week of my winter break (Thanksgiving week), me and my family spent our holiday on the Disney Fantasy!  That's right!! A Disney cruise!  It was so fun and so amazing traveling to St. Thomas, Puerto Rico and the Disney Castaway Cay Island.  My favorite I think was Puerto Rico.  It reminded me exactly of Madrid and made me miss it even more.  I need to go back... to Puerto Rico and Spain.
I love traveling.

Happy Holidays everyone!!
xo, Car

finals week~

TWO MORE DAYS OF MY FIRST QUARTER OF COLLEGE!! Like what the heck, how did I get this old?  Like, in three more classes I'll be done and on my way to Caribbean paradise for ten days.  (P.S. I'm super duper extremely excited!!!)  But seriously guys... design class tonight, (skipping speech tomorrow because I already did my final speech), a drawing critique and a design critique/final on Thursday!  And that's it!

Thursday night my family will get here, which I'm surprisingly really excited about!  I can't wait to show them around Savannah and then head down to Florida to leave for our Disney Cruise!  Excited doesn't even begin to explain my emotions right now.

I am so thankful I only have two days left because I'm not sure if I'd be able to stand it here for another day after that.  As much I love everyone here, I need my space and I need to get away from certain personalities.

I am so ready for Winter Break.

Home to LALA-Land
Los Angeles for the rest of break!

Seriously guys, I'm so excited

college life!

So, I'm in college now.  I live in Georgia.  I spend my days in the studio drawing and designing and the evenings eating and sleeping.  Basically my life is consumed with art and thats about it.  When I'm not in class I'm exhausted and normally feeling pretty sick. (I'm pretty sure its from inhaling so much charcoal throughout the week.)  Since I haven't written in forever (except for my last two posts) I need to fill y'all in!  Yeah, I said y'all.

look at my cool life:
usual photoshoots for Legit Fashion by the mailboxes in my dorm

me and my roomie/bestie Vicotira walking through charming Savannah like the first week of school

not so typical school supplies.... basically had to sell my kidneys for all this

I'm like really obsessed with this piece of art in the courtyard of the SCAD Museum of Art... its just so adorable

my drawing classroom. i love it. more than anything... except on the weekends when I have to go in for homework

Hannah, Victoria and I... a classic roomie pic!

my first design project! a mandala representing me and my hometown-- Los Angeles, the city of angels

Basically we're best friends now. Not sure what i'd do without this freak.

(hate the vertical pics but whatever) We went to the exhibit opening party for Andre Leon Talley and Marc Jacobs... it was magical, so many beautiful pieces by so many designers.

more dresses. seriously, these were some of my favorites. so simple and perfect

I drew those.  Hold the applause please.

My amigo Jacob and I.  We were matching... totally planned but still really legit.  He's probably one of my favorite people here just saying.

This is me being pretty.  I really like this picture of myself.  I'm allowed to like pictures of myself.  K cool.

I don't think words can describe how much my stomach and I adore this sandwich.

Caught the Red Route and had it all to myself on a Monday afternoon!!! Miracles do happen!

My self portrait was put on the wall in the Drawing Building!  My professor said it was one of the best ones so I'm really proud of it if you couldn't tell by my super happy face(s)!

Halloween costume shopping...... Feeling super foxy (hehe get it?!) and super hipster.

Victoria and I in the dorm.  Way too cool for real life~

I love all the graffiti us scaddies put everywhere.  I love all the art... but I hate it when SCAD makes us pay for it in our tuition.  

Victoria and I on Halloween!  We dressed up as the SCAD non-existent bowling team. GO BEES!

Me, Vic, Alex and Mike on Halloween.  They're our neighbors.  Super cool dudes.

We managed to get ourselves locked out of our dorm on Halloween.  Seriously we can't remember our room keys for the lifes of us.

Cereal.... basically a food group itself.

Had to leave for class in like 3 minutes, but I wanted to get dressed up like a cheetah so I did. Welcome to SCAD, y'all!

Panera dinner bestie date.  There was a super cool hippie van parked out front so we took a mirror pic~

Jacob and me as cats the night me and Vic took his Chick-fil-a viriginity.

We attempted to go to the gym... but of course it was closed, so we pathetically sat in a square and dramatically listened to music.

miss my room

so, i looking at my old posts and came across my post called mySpace >>here<< and I realized 1) how much cooler of a life I had when I had a camera and 2) how much i miss my room.  seriously, like i miss my cave.  it was so puuuurty.

this is what i'm missing right about now....
my flowers.... i miss being surrounded by flowers

my bed... i miss my blankets and ugly zebra print pillows... i miss the fluffiness and warmth

strangely i really miss my bathroom.  i miss my wall of fashion inspiration and my window. i miss all my art work hanging in there and my candles and little jars.  i miss the pattern on the window. omg i miss it guys, this is so pathetic

hi again

hi, I haven't posted here in a while and last time you heard from me I was a poor little high school student who hated life.  Well, here I am... a college student, Georgia resident (sorta, I just live here), a world traveler (ok, only Spain), and still as Caroline as ever.  Like I said, I did go to Europe.  I only made it to Spain but it was the best decision of my life.  The trip cliché-ly changed me.  Literally, I flew from Los Angeles to Spain by myself and spent a whole month in a country where I barely spoke the language.  Of course, I was staying with my best friend so it was the best time ever, but while I was there, I learned a whole freaking lot about me and my place in this big badass world.  I'm not sure if I can put it into words, but I definitely thing I grew up a whole lot and changed a whole lot from that whole experience.  I would go back to that month in a heartbeat.... thinking about Spain makes my heart hurt because I love it so much.

Speaking of things that have changed me.... COLLEGE.  Yeah, as you all should know since you've all read my "about me" (right... right?), I'm currently away at college at SCAD!!!  Living so far away from home and living on my own have definitely changed me.  I definitely have a whole different type of love for my family back home.  Literally haven't talked to my mom this much about personal problems since like junior high.  I've definitely changed.  I can't describe it.  Just read my blog and you'll see it.

here are some pics from spain because well.... i love spain and i love you

Elisa, me and Paula (like my besties) in Sol on my first night in Madrid!  It was 2 am... crazy life

our super touristy day when we took the tour bus around the city.  i loved this street... there was the store where i bought all my souvenirs and a really good traditional bakery.  it was so enchanting.  it was also like 500 degrees 

Paula and I being rock stars in Barcelona 

ok, this picture was when we were in LA before we went to Paula's house in Madrid, but I absolutely adore this picture

Me and Pau (Paula, duh) in Sagovia aka Genovia from the Princess Diaries.... we were super tribal and trendy that day

Me and Pau and our cute butts at El Retiro park... we road around in those little boats on the lake

Me and Eli (Elisa, duh) on one of the super cute boats at the park... reppin our homeland (well mine and he new one) LA!!!!!!

Pau and I being rock stars once again on a roof top over Madrid on my last night in the country :(

Pau and I infront Sagrada Familia in Bareclona... basically like the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.  we had tapas at a cute little cafe across the street...... such a lovely afternoon

Honestly, take me back to Spain.  I can't live in America anymore.
I'm being really dramatic right now.

honesty ponesty

You know what I don't understand?  I don't understand why people are so uptight about everyone being honest and saying exactly what they feel about things but when you say something completely honest and it regards them or a friend, they freak out.  They think you're being mean, rude, crazy.  Well hello, you're the crazy one, amigo! You're the ones who keep complaining that people don't just say it like it is or with complete honesty.  Like, its so hypocritical.  If you're going to tell someone to be honest, then let them be honest about whatever the hell they want because honesty is honesty no matter if its mean or kind or funny or sad.  Its all honesty.  And honestly, what is life without honesty?  A bunch of lies. And lies are stupid.  White lies, yeah whatever, those are easy to get over, but like legit lying.   No.  Stop.  Check yourself before you wreck yourself.

Okay, end rant.

I am so thankful that in a month I'll be done with all this craziness.

Can I get an amen, hallelujah to that?!

I'm having second thoughts about my trip to Europe.
Like, I really want to go and have this wonderful experience seeing new things and being with people I love in a place that I've dreamed about going my entire life, but like, there are so many things I want to do here.  Even though I have like no friends here anymore, I want to stay here and be with people before I move across the country for four years, but like I said, I barely have any friends here anymore.  Also, money.  My parents are not going to pay one cent of my trip and I only have $1000 or so, so like I don't have the funds and I'm just in the mood to give up on it because I give up on everything in my life.  I never follow through with my plans, and partially I think it's because I hate it here.  I have no motivation.  But on the other hand, going to Europe would be my chance to get out of here.  SO MANY CONFLICTIONS.  I'm not quite sure what I am going to do....

There are so many things that you can do with your hair.  You can flat-iron it, curl it, clamp it, twist it, braid it, crimp it, pin it, and so much more.  Hair is probably one of the most vital fashion accessories in the whole entire world of fashion.  How your hair looks can make such a statement, from easy and breezy to a slicked back up-do, what your hair looks like says so much about you.  Lately I have been loving the look of braids. They are so cute and add texture and a little love to your hair.  As many of you know, I am the girl who is known for chopping off her hair to her shoulders just about every 4 months.  I love getting my hair cut, but sometimes (like tonight) I really wish my hair was long so I could wear it in a braid tomorrow.  My fashion idol, Ashley Olsen, is famously known for saying that the braid is her best friend and I couldn't agree more.  When you're having a bad hair day, braids make it better... When you want to spice up your look, braids make it better!  If only my hair was down to my waist where it used to be.... 10 years ago.

I have issues.  I should stop cutting my hair.
