So I’m writing this post… FOR Marisa… No, I’m not dedicating it to her- I just feel she has been a busy little bee for far too long and people who are new to the blog are probably wondering just who Marisa even is.

This post shall remedy that 🙂

The following photos were taken from Miss Marisa without her consent and she was given only an incredibly vague warning that this post was even going to be taking place.

I feel this surprise-blog is only fitting punishment for leaving us for so long without word or news of her life ;).

Enough of my ranting- on to the pictures!

There she is! I know, I know, you’ve probably almost forgotten what her pretty face looks like!

Her morning commute- waiting for the train. Looks so— — — warm.
Marisa in her Media and Ad Design class with unnamed friend where she no doubt has been spending much of her time away. I’m starting to feel like a tour guide in a museum… “And on our left!”
TAT!  It’s been so long I can’t even remember if this is a new one or not. Sad face. If you can’t read it, it says “Reverie”
Moving on we have our next work by Marisa- “Skewed Boy In Plaid”. Very artistic. Very moody.
And this is where the remainder of Marisa’s life has been spent (without doubt)- taking care of her horses, doing shows, etc.
Horse Barracks– taken on her mobile though I’m not sure what app allows this cool panoramic view.

And what would a Marisa post be without some of her legendary “Food-Porn”. This is a Lavender and Pear martini that- not kidding- made me salivate a little when I saw it. This picture actually is what inspired the “forced post”.


POST 300

So this is it- Post 300! And what better idea for a post than an impromptu photoshoot with two of the best people I know- Dominique and Tyler. As I said, it happened all very spur of the moment- but Dominique, Tyler and I all got together over the weekend to play a little Wii, grab some dinner and end the night just hanging out together (okay maybe there was a game of Apples to Apples thrown in there as well).  When everyone was in one place, I couldn’t help but think we all looked great and thus a photoshoot was born :). Hope your weekend went well!
P.S. How about this! Two posts in less than a week haha. If you want to know where my time has been going it’s here-  I swear that site is never finished!

Dominique and I didn’t even plan for our legs to go that way.
Great new Betsey Johnson pearl tie necklace that I think was probably one of Dom’s favorite Christmas presents… well that and DJ Hero 2.
She was channeling this whole french theme, fully equipped with eiffel tower earrings.
You lookin at me? You lookin at me!?  … dunno why I felt like saying that.
TO MY CREDIT! This photo was NOT my idea! Dom said she was in love with my ring and wanted to kiss it.
Norman did a great job that evening with the sunset.
A little food-porn to send us off.
Ah yes, and the lovely Marion stopped by at the end of the night to make it complete.

This is a post of dog-fashion, lots of presents, and the sea of wrapping paper that followed the carnage of opening all those hours of wrapping.  I’d write more, but I’m rushing to get out of Houston 🙂 . Hope you are having a great week!

Happy New Years day everyone! I know it’s going to be a FANTASTIC 2011 and I wish the same for all of you as well!

Okay- so I have a lot of photos I’ve been taking over Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, etc. that I need to get up here, but today I have to draw attention to the trendster accessory of the season (in my opinion of course).

Yes, I’m talking about The little black hat.

Sometimes a little wider brim than others, yet the style remains the same. Not sure what I’m talking about? Check out the pictures below and whether you are a guy or a girl- head to your favorite accessory spot and pick on up.

Have a great weekend everyone!
