creepy ass motherfucker! what you can't see is another girl sitting directly in front of his line of sight, to the left of this picture and completely oblivious to what's going on right next to her.
as soon as he saw us snapping these pics he packed up and got up to leave - but not before my boyfriend politely went up to him and asked, "are you taking pictures of these women here on your phone?" of course he denies, but when boyfriend said, "show me the pics on your phone and prove it," he refused.
i'm not one to put people on blast on the internets, but he knew what he was doing and so did everybody else on the beach. thank you to the nice gal who tipped us off - she called him out in front of the whole beach! haha
consider this a public service announcement. creeps are alive and well - and they might be snapping pics of your girlfriend or teenage daughter!
pretty much every girl i know is up on the daily candy, but those who aren't, now you can be!
daily candy is a newsletter that features the latest in major metropolitan cities around the U.S. you can subscribe to any of a long list of cities, plus a weekly travel, deals, baby, and general edition. i think i subscribe to damn near every city - seattle of course, plus miami, NYC, L.A., atlanta, boston & chicago - to see what's up with local restaurants, boutiques, art shows, sample sales and indie designers...these i love!
rounds out the perfect "read with the morning coffee": cnn, seattle times, perez hilton, kanye's blog...daily candy!

this work week has been the week from hell and i'm not quite sure why. we have about seven events in eight business days, covering one event that's not ours (actually two) - but this has happened before. something about this week is just incredibly stressful. i've been staying late and bringing work home every night (something i'd gotten myself out of doing), emailing til 10pm, crossing a million things off of my list, and i still feel like i haven't made a dent in all the work i have to do.
i've fallen of the health wagon too. i'm missing or skipping workouts to sleep or work, eating horribly, drinking soda during the weekdays (sorry jake), and wake up from a full night of sleep completely tired. i hate this feeling! i feel like i'm taking crazy pills!
work/life balance is so important and i try to keep to that as much as possible. the nature of what i do can be incredibly demanding at times and i sometimes just have to deal with the consequences. i look to the positive though - the weekend, my YPN committee who i absolutely adore and love being around, and all of the members who get value from coming to our events. totally worth it for their satisfaction!
and just for fun...
A dazzling, irreverent novel set in Renaissance Florence and the court of the great Mughal Empire, THE ENCHANTRESS OF FLORENCE opens with a young European traveler who calls himself “Mogor dell’Amore,” the Mughal of Love. He arrives at the court of the Emperor Akbar with a tale that captivates the imperial capital— a story about a mysterious woman, a great beauty believed to possess powers of enchantment and sorcery, and her impossible journey to the far off city of Florence. It is an amazing feat of storytelling that mixes political intrigue, romance and magic, and is also a profound reflection on how the brutal past still influences our present world.

i still love kicks so much. i love the sneakerhead culture even though i don't consider myself part of it. i can respect a hot pair when i see one, but honestly haven't been paying much attention these past couple of years. one of my many dreams is to own a boutique - not sure if i want it to be primarily sneakers but i will definitely be buying for women. there are not enough women's sneaker boutiques in the world and the stores in seattle sure as hell don't cater! except for you, goods :)
on my mission for my next pair, i went to the first spot i could think of: kendo in L.A. i swear, if i went down there solely to shop, kendo would be my first stop. i am so drooling over these, please get me them:
but these i think are my favorites:
saw these at goods today but wasn't super-crazy about them...i might get them if i can't find those 90s:
