almost another year...

I found this awesome website the other day!

It's pretty cool, you can set goals online, record your progress, talk to others who want to do the same things, find out how people accomplished them, and all sorts of stuff like that! I found all kinds of goals I never would've thought people would have, and was definitely inspired to try some different things, set some goals, make some REAL resolutions for this next year,
this BRAND NEW decade. (Is anybody else slightly intimidated that this it's going to be a new decade?)
What are your new years resolutions my loves?

bam, sham, glam!

Easiest cute hairstyle ever!

Part your hair on the side

From the side with more hair, separate a section

Hold the section along the side of your head

Start braiding the section backwards,
towards the nape of your neck

If you can, pull in bits of hair (not from the section)
to the braid as you go

When the braid reaches your neck, pull the rest of your hair back
and tie it all into a messy bun

You look gorgeous,
and your hair isn't in the way of your adventures!

Sleeping in Style

Can you imagine when you're
on an airplane over the holidays
and you whip this one out for your nap?

Pretty freakin' cool.

P.S. For more ways to be like Holly Golightly, check out this awesome list

On a side note, I'm finally living up to my name as a "gypsy", and going on a pretty big adventure with one of my friends tomorrow. We're going to the Netherlands to stay with one of our friends who moved there! It's my first trip alone out of the country (I went to France, but that was with my school a few years ago), and I'm super excited for everything that's to come. I'll be sure to take lots of pictures to share when I get back! (:
One of my friends recently put a quote up on her tumblr that read

"I don't know what I want, but I know I need to see the world"

I think that's so true.

Lily Maritoski

Her world was one of devious men, liars and theives, who danced with her on fire escapes, led her through dark allys, and made her breakfast when her head pounded too fiercly to untangle herself from the white sheets.

Her world was one of breathtaking moments, artificial dreams, and orange juice at one in the morning. She didn't think she owned an article of clothing that wasn't ripped, from nails clawing at her back, from falling, from dancing too crazily, from fighting, from loving.

Her world was one of love and hate, of yin and yang, of opposites. She was inspired, one time, after reading about Benjamin Franklin, to analyze her life in the form of the scientific theory. She found that she spent far too more time in the hypothesis state than she did in analysis.

Her world was one of snuggling, of burrying, of digging, of building a home and hiding in it. Of sewing a curtain and standing behind it. She loved to conceal, she loved to pretend, she loved to dress up and run around her street because of the thrill she got when her neighbors inquired if she had known that maniac who had been out there. The satisfaction when she answered, "No, I have no idea who that freak was" was far greater than anything else she'd ever known.

Her world was one of radical parties, of late nights spent in a hazy fog of uncertainty, of early mornings spent walking against the brisk wind to get home. She laughed too loud and cried too often, she whispered annoying quotes in strangers ears, she took great pride in her ability to sing irish folk.

Yes Yes Yes

I want to live more. I crave a world that is spinning faster, that gives me more to be a part of. I want to be a part of an artistic community, to feel like I am living a revolution. 1830s french bohemia, the lost generation, the beats of the 50s, the factory scene and protests of the 60s...I want to live wildly and madly and loudly. I feel like I have to create that world I want to live in, create that place of art and madness and beauty and pain and laughter and dreamers. So I guess I will. Because that's how it all has to begin, isn't it? With a feeling, a hope, a dream.
