Monday Monday

Mondays. Normally I don’t enjoy them, but I have so much to look forward this week. My life has been sunshine–literally and figuratively. Which is uncommon for Lansing, Michigan and for me to be in such a happy mood all the time. Tomorrow I get to see my friend’s band open for Margot and the Nuclear So and So’s. I love Margot and I’m thrilled to see some of my friends from west Michigan. I also have Ignite Lansing this weekend which I’ll delve into more as the day approaches. Tieka’s Dove sponsored Red Carpet Viewing Party is on Sunday so I get to see her and other west Michigan friends!

I purchased this fab handbag last week. I swear this my last handbag purchase for this year. I need to stop the madness. I’ve been yearning for this Marc Jacobs purse for a while and I really wanted a beige purse for spring and just to mix up with my pretty much all black/grey ensembles.

These photos were taken outside of Motor Wheel Lofts where I live. I love this place and I liked that I finally had some photos with the building more in the background. My friend Peter was kind enough to snap these photos for me. Thanks!

Wow, 2010 has been good to me so far. I’ve been kept busy with so many exciting things! Seeing Nate Ruess’ new band, Fun. was absolutely amazing. Haley and I waited in line outside for a half hour to get inside. We naively assumed the venue wouldn’t be packed and we couldn’t have been more wrong. Tons of people. Tons o fans of the Format and now of Fun. It felt more like a sing-a-long rather than listening to someone perform. The crap drive to Ann Arbor, the wait in the blizzard conditions and the sweatiness I experienced was all worth experiencing Nate Ruess’ passion again.

My Friday work day was also fun. About four times I year I coordinate something called a Tech Tour where we take college IT students around on a bus to different IT companies with super cool, laid back cultures and then take the students to tour a cool housing option in the Lansing area. I pretty much experience the Tech Tour just as a student would except that I’m freaking out about timing and schedules–we have a tight time schedule to adhere to! I went to my first MSU hockey game too and was in good company.

I bought these shoes last week and I think they will make their debut to the Lansing crowd tonight at the Addy Awards Gala. I need some pop of color in my outfits and these pair of boots spice up my simple black dress.

The jumping bassist is from Grand Rapids and met his roomies that came to support him. They dressed in plaid and were awesome.

all business

I woke up super early to attend the Lansing Breakfast Club at the Impression 5 Science Center to eat food and make slime before work. While it was worth getting up early, seeing friends and meeting new people, I’m now feeling quite exhausted. I have such a busy week this week! It’s all fun though.. I’m participating in an advanced photoshop workshop and then I go to see the band Fun. in Ann Arbor, Mich. with Haley! She raided my closet and now we both have our loose fitting outfits selected to wear and dance in while Nate Ruess serenades us.

I purchased this skirt back in December to go with this vintage top I bought back in November and was waiting for the perfect event to debut it. Since I was attending an event today to hear presentations from the governor candidates with a bunch of old white guys, I thought this would be quite fitting. It’s not often I wear a pencil skirt, but I like the geometric details on it and since it’s grey, it will go with just about anything.

And my friend just released his EP yesterday on itunes. I’m super pumped for him and super pumped to see more and more of the photos I took be used for his promotional stuff. Yay!

from the weekend

This weekend was fabulous. The highlight was shaving my friend Tom’s back on Saturday. I’m not sure why I find it so entertaining for myself. Perhaps it’s because it’s slightly reminiscent of my horse showing days where I would trim my horse for show or maybe I just have a twisted sense of fun. Probably the latter. He threw a Jersey Shore themed party in celebration of his birthday and with the tight graphic muscle tee, he thought he might look more convincing if he looked less like a werewolf. I stopped over at Tom’s early to get some photos of him. I’ll be posting some of those ridiculous photos below.

Also in exciting news, I’m going to Philadelphia April 1-4 to visit Kim and Melissa from Crowded Closet. Kim lives in Philly and Melissa lives in NYC. But she will be making a special trip to town so we can be reunited! I’m counting down the days…

I just bought this tee from H & M. I had to run to Ann Arbor on Thursday with Haley to pick up our tickets to see Fun. and figured since I was in the vicinity of some good malls, why not make a stop?
