Dancing to a Different Beat

Glossy black bob, alabaster skin, soulful voice, and a popping style: all of these describe British Pop sensation Jessie J. Her collaboration with B.O.B., "Price Tag," quickly shot up the charts, becoming the number one single in England and reaching the top tens in the U.S. Her new album Who You Are features songs whose sounds range from Broadway showstopper to reggae ballad; however, this girl's songs aren't the only things that are fun. Her style is playful with an edge, just like her music.

The Naked Truth

Models with no makeup? Ladies and gentlemen, they are just as gorgeous (some even more so) without it. Alas, we mere mortals can only wish for such natural beauty.

Beautiful Pictures From My Computer

Every so often I'm going to feature pictures from my computer whose sources I seem to have lost. Since I don't know where all of these pictures came from, for copyright purposes I must state that they aren't mine. These are some of my favorite pictures, so enjoy.

The Coveted

Tomorrow is my golden birthday! And how sweet is it that it's also my Sweet Sixteen. I'm incredibly excited, and can't wait! My day will start of great with my mom taking me to breakfast, and will only get better from there. I've pretty much already gotten my presents, but a girl can still dream for  more right? (I know I'm rather greedy ;)) If I could get anything I wanted for my birthday, I would love:

Ever since I was little, I've always wanted a charm bracelet, and this one from Tiffany and Co. is perfect!

I love this Chloe bag. It looks as if it would go with almost anything. 

I'm somewhat old-fashioned clothes-wise and  love scarves and how much they can add to an outfit. This Hermes scarf is beautiful!

I love this Coach ballet slipper! So chic!

Style Crush: Blair Waldorf's Polished Upper East Side Looks

My Future Career:

Party-planner extraordinaire! I've been busy planning what I hope will be the most talked about event of the year in my school, my Sweet Sixteen Sleepover! Planning this, every detail from the food that will be served to the activities that we will do, has made me realize that I would love to plan events such as balls, dinners, parties, and anything that could come my way.
