I recently acquired Issue 2 of Katie Grand's (Alexander McQueen's old stylist) LOVE Magazine: The Young & Reckless. I was less than favourably impressed by the overly hyped debut issue to be honest and this one while interesting enough to entertain me for a 6 hour coach ride left a little more than to be desired. It needed better proof reading as there were lots of typing errors for a professional publication. The youthful, celebrity and supposed "anti-celebrities" featured in articles were well written, amusing and interesting but it was hard to believe that half of them with their mega stardom parents (Sting, Bob Geldof, Hugh Hefner, Bruce Willis) were unaffected by their easy access to fame and success. The styling was inventive and I loved the feature on Tavi from Style Rookie. I also really enjoyed the feature on Disney's new stars like The Jonas Brothers & Miley Cyrus. They gave me a new perspective on the whole franchise actually. But it left me feeling a little useless and pathetic compared to the crazy successful, young people in theissue. I mean 19 year old singer and song writers and 16 year old actor singers and boxers and guitarists. I'm 19 now. What have I done? What am I doing? What have I got planned? It made me more motivated than ever to get done what I've got down in to-do lists instead of just making more lists. I'm dedicated to this year not being as much of a waste as the last one. 2010 is going to be a productive year- the best year!

I'm an insomniac. I like to stay up late to watch the sky change from blue to black to beige and blue again. I'm a critically indecisive realist whose in love with the little things. I enjoy writing lists and schedules but never stick to them. I want to learn to do a million things like speak Swedish, play guitar, skateboard, hula hoop and play poker. My mind is always turning over a million things but I am a simple girl and I never ask for much. I'm a typical nerd and I'm excited by fashion, photography, books, ideas and theories.
I could pour through books and magazines until my eyes dribbled down my face in a torrent of glitter and sequins. It's true.
I like to paint what I write, write what I think and photograph what I see.
