I have been really dying to dig up an old, old, old bag of studs I have hidden somewhere in my crafting stuff and make some DIY pieces like the ones I've been seeing lately. I have some old clothes and shoes, particularly a pair of beat up gray converse that could use some TLC. Although I usually donate stuff about four times a year (once every new season) it is hard not to hold on to some pieces in my closet that I see still have potential, despite me never wearing them. I am hoping to create some thing like this Topshop Studded Bustier, the amazing sneakers I saw over on Honestly...WTF and maybe update some denim pieces in my closet for the cooler weather. I have always had a thing for Mary-Kates style and ever since I saw her wearing the above studded leather jacket back in 2008 I have an obsession with Givenchy.

Hopefully I will have some DIYs up within the next couple days.

My name is Faith, this is my first post here on my blog. I hope to share with anyone who finds my page, Fashion, Beauty, and DIY musings from me. I live in the most beautiful place on earth San Diego, California. I like to think we are a laid-back version of Los Angeles, much more down to earth than OC, but needlessly still fashionable and trendy. I follow blogs from all over, NY, Stockholm, London and back to SoCal, but I haven't found TOO many bloggers reppin' my hood.  

Just to know a little bit about me, I am a 22 year old singer who works with the school district and am still in University (but will be graduating within the next year YAY.) I LOVE to travel, and can never stay in one place too long. Although my city has my heart, every few weeks I get the itch to leave town, and I hardly ever make a plan. My life is very spontaneous and I have so many different things I'm passionate about but Music and Fashion really fulfill me. I hope to share all the things that inspire me with you. 

Today was my day off, I have spent the day watching documentaries and drinking tea. One of my favorite things to do on a rainy day (especially since we have so few in SD.)
