first and foremost, i have to say thank you to every person who took time out of their day to respond to my last blog post. i truthfully wasn't expecting very much of a response, and i've never been so happy to be wrong. i received the most beautiful and heartfelt comments, amazing lengthy emails, tweets, etc. i'll be honest; i'm a self-proclaimed misanthrope and knowing that all of you incredible people exist makes my faith in humanity restored to a level higher than it's been in awhile. so from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU for caring. i've been talking to a ton of people about this project and can't wait to get the ball rolling. i will definitely be including my progress in all of my blog updates... i just ask that you do not lose patience and stay with me on this! also: i am extremely open to hear ideas and inputs from anyone and everyone. i'll tell you a little bit about the structure i was considering for the group, and i'd appreciate your feedback.
i'd love to set monthly goals for the group to focus on. one month, our goal could be to assist the downtown LA homeless population's animals. a group of people who live in Los Angeles can visit downtown LA, find specific animals greatly in need, possibly photograph and interview the owners (so long as we are not exploiting anybody), and then the group of fashion bloggers across the world can include all of this information and request donations in their posts all month, while adding their own dialogue and spin on it. we can use the money earned to help the animals we promised to help, and then on to a new monthly goal in a new city. these are just my very first rough ideas, so please feel free to email me with any of yours! i would love to hear them.

as i also mentioned in my last post, i'm on a very serious health kick, which includes inside and outside my body. i NEVER used to spend time on myself, but for the past two weeks i've been taking extra time to cook, make smoothies, exfoliate, moisturize, etc, etc. i can't tell you what a change it makes in my mood and how i physically feel. it took me so long (and doing a good amount of psychedelic drugs resulting in enlightenment, self-reflection, and discovering absolute happiness and knowing exactly how to achieve it) to get to the point of having enough patience to do these things, but i'm finally here and it feels amazing. if you take anything from this post, i hope that you watch the video below and really consider everything she discussed. it almost completely mirrors the message of the Forks Over Knives documentary, sans the meat consumption. i am now vegan, and i believe a very healthy and protein-rich diet can easily be accomplished without meat. anyway, that's a whole other story. please watch the video below! this woman CURED HERSELF OF MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS purely by changing her eating habits. i've already sent it to a ton of my friends and everyone's reactions have been the same- enlightened.
my friends have sent me some really great links, i really recommend checking them out!
and of course, definitely watch this.
if you read all of this, that makes me SO happy. i'll still be doing regular outfit posts and whatnot, but a whole lot more than that will be included from now on.
