Icy Wind & Patterned Pants


Call us crazy for going out today. We obviously had a swayed judgment when we looked outside and thought it might be warm enough to get some shots. We were very wrong. Honestly though if it weren't for the wind it would have been about 80% better, just 80%. Poor Mackenzie had purple fingers by the end of it all. Obviously Punxsutawney Phil lied. Spring isn't coming as fast as expected. The good news, if you can call it that, is that it's raining now. Hopefully no more snow storms will blow past us.

For some reason me and Kenz always seem to match. Not always in the color scheme but in some way or another. Today it was patterned pants and cute flats. Me with my thrift shop loafers and her with her chic color blocking ballets. The great thing about having a friend who has the same sense of style as you is the constant borrowing of clothes. Sadly I wear an 8 in shoes and Kenzie wears a 6. She can wear mine but I can't wear hers. I luck out on that one. Other then footwear though we share jewelry and maybe on occasion jackets. Pants aren't as common because she's smaller than me, fortunatly only by one size. So if I'm willing I can squeeze. I find it sort of funny that everything in her closet I would wear in a heartbeat.

School Days

Well, Hayley and I are still in high school and we try to take photos durning our lunch break, which is an hour long. On this particular day we were just too lazy to drive somewhere and opted to take photos outside of the school instead. We are both in our last year of high school (only 11 weeks left!) I personally love being a teen blogger, it has been a great way to capture pictures of our outfits and has been so much fun. I love going outside and taking photos, it really has improved my photography and writing skills. I would suggest other teens to start one as well, you can really be as creative as you want. I am looking forward to the weather getting warmer so we can take photos more frequently. Hayley and I plan to even redesign the page soon!!

Surrealist Art

Hey everyone! So, a few weeks ago Mackenzie and I made a Man Ray inspired surrealist video for a seminar we were both in. All of the footage was shot by either of us and all compiled together, cut, and edited by me. I used Windows Live Movie Maker to make it. The title is S'inquiéter and means  "to worry" in French. The song is Violet Hill by Coldplay, my favorite band.
This second video was made for fun just by me. It's the song 7 Nation Army by The White Stripes. I used some of the same clips while adding a few more we had filmed but did not use in the previous video. This video, called Ce Battement Régulier, is also in French and means "That Steady Beat".

She goes by Birdy. An Australian songstress with a set of pipes to kill and piano skills to beat. She's also only 16 years old and has her first album out already on iTunes and She does mostly covers but a few are her own. Her next album will be all her own songs.
**Buy her debut album "Birdy"**
So I discovered this song last week and seriously haven't stopped listening to it since. I can already quote it. 

Her debut album, "Birdy"

Against the Pavement

Today was warmer out, 50 degrees, a sign that Spring is on it's way, we hope. We took full advantage of the foggy day and took some shots. Questions we were asked about these pictures were, "Were their cars? Where is this empty road?" The road is in fact totally functional and running but usually unused since it is a back road near farms. Whenever there was a car coming though we'd shout, "Car!" and quickly move out of the way. And as they'd drive by, slowing down a little when they approached us, we'd merely pretend to be taking pictures of trees and ditches instead of being two crazy girls taking fashion shots in the middle of the road in 50 degree weather. Well, "All for the sake of fashion" as Mackenzie says, and for all our lovely readers, whoever you may be.
Have a splendid day!

Mad Men! I recently started watching this last month and I instantly got hooked. I can't put my finger on why I love it, its just addicting.

Excited about...

Downton Abbey, what can I say, it is beautiful, amazing, spectacular, and pretty much the greatest show ever. Hayley and I have waited forever to see season 3, we are two giddy screaming girls when it comes on. I would describe my thoughts on the new season but I don't was to spoil anything. This week we are going to bake some Downton Abbey inspired type food (scones maybe, do you have any ideas?) and drink herbal tea while enjoying the show. To get an idea of what we are like while watching Downton Abbey watch the video below (its hilarious!)


Is everyone hanging out without me? by Mindy Kaling. I just finished this book and it was an awesome read. Mindy is a writer on The Office and I love the office so I knew I would enjoy it. It's very similar to Tina Fey's book. It's adorable, a fast funny read and I suggest it.

Thinking about...

Instead of reflecting on the past year I can't help but think of the year to come with college and moving away from family and friends, it's an exciting and nervous time.


Winter. It's very hard to take blog photos when it is 10 degrees outside. I have seen other bloggers take photos in the snow but I wonder how they do it. I think it is just too cold in Wisconsin.

Working on..

Surrealism! Hayley and I are taking a class on surrealism and dadaism and for the final project we (and another friend) created a Man Ray inspired film. I hate to brag but it's crazy good. This was our first film and it was a lot of work but really fun. We had no limits so we could create really cool scenes. I hope to put it on the blog soon.
