what i've done today


Hello!
For those who follow me on


You've probably seen the teaser picture that I posted of this post.
People have been bugging me to try this website for a long time, saying how much I would love it.
So I finally broke down and made an account.

I am totally doing the tumblr thing now.
Oops!

Do not fret! I will not be abandoning the blog. I've posted multiple "inspiration posts" on here anyways, so I instead will be treating tumblr as a constant stream of inspiration: fashion, beautiful scenery, and delicious food. 
Hurrah!


Check it out.
Let me know what you think!

An Evening of Photographs

Skirt - Forever 21
Orange Beach top - Grandma Grande
Bathing suit - Gifted

The last photo here is my favourite! Which is yours?

Hello Friends!
Here are the shots from a beachfront photo shoot I did with my friend, Andy. To be honest, I've never been a fan of studio lighting. I've ALWAYS opted for natural light, and no flash if I can get away with it. However, the photos turned out wonderfully! Maybe I'm in the process of being converted?
....

This week is getting hectic, with the CELTIC COLLEGE AND FESTIVAL ONLY 6 SLEEPS AWAY!
WHAAAAAT
WHAT
HOW

But even with the bustle around the best week of the year (Besides Festivus), I won't have to neglect the blog until NEXT week, when the college and festival actually start.

{ b.p.k.a } PART THREE : My Favourite Music


Hello Friends!

Welcome to the THIRD installment of { b.p.k.a }

CASS' FAVOURITE MUSIC


For people who know me well, they know that I'm really not in the loop with the whole popular music scene. Whenever my friends/sister and I do a beach tour, I'm never allowed to plug in my phone UNLESS it's to listen to Marina and The Diamonds.
Because apparently that's the only good music I listen to. 
I'M LOOKING AT YOU, RONNY AND NICOLE

I've tried to sneak my favourite music into social setting, here and there, and everyone just stops what they are doing and looks at me like

So then I'm like:
"DON'T WORRY, GUYS. IT GETS BETTER!"
And then I change the song to something that is totally more conducive for dancing..
And everyone, at the same time:

So I've been condemed to a life of other people's music because apparently all of my other music is Hipster doofus music that isn't acceptable for car rides and parties.


BUT IT DON'T PHASE ME
I KEEP DOIN' LIKE I DO

AND ME DOIN' ME, MEANS ME DOIN' UP A PLAYLIST FOR YOU GOOFS TO LISTEN TO

So here it is!
48 songs long, and 3 hours of listening!

I listen to a huge variety of styles, some of which I can not even describe in words. This mix includes:
Singer Songwriter
English Electro
Indie
Bubblegum Pop
Alternative Rock
Electro Swing
 { other things I can not categorize }


 *YOU LISTENING TO MUSIC*

I listen to music because it makes me feel good.
Songs inspire me creatively & personally, and keeping that type of music in my life makes for happier days. My music might not be what you like, but it's okay:

How did you like the mix?
What's your favourite song in the playlsit?
 Let me know! I'd love to know if I truly am crazy, or if there are other strange music lovers out there just like me.

Easy listening!

{ Kenzo Fall 2013 :AKA: whaaat ? }








Kenzo's Fall 2013 Campaign.
Totally trippy, right?
I love it when brands take their marketing to a whole other level. For Kenzo, it's a totally fresh way to market themselves, and the surreal nature of the photographs makes them almost creepy. The photos don't fit together in any way but their obscurity. I'm so excited to see the whole collection! Memorable things are things I want to buy.

Tonight, I am speaking at my local Rotary Club about my experiences of living in South Korea!
I'm totally excited to wear my Hanbok again, and speak to a new group of people about the experiences that changed my life so greatly.

Look for updates.

{ Daisy's Girls }

" Parties all the time, driving into town, spending money, falling in love, big mansions and gardens, the ocean, brewing your own alcohol, best friends and broken hearts...it's just so amazingly fun. It was all sparkle, true love, dancing, and champagne! "

This editorial for Wildfox's Fall 2013 collection is seriously blowing my mind over and over again. I love the Gatsby inspired set and modern twist on 20's clothing. The choice of models is totally spot on, having each four of the girls embody a classic archetype, and with the clothes being so unique, yet wearable, this combo is killer.

Serious love for this.
Oh my.

Also...

THIS HAIR IS KILLING ME
I WANT IT
AHHH

I am off to the carnival now,
Happy Friday!
