Last night, my father passed away after battling cancer for almost four years.
He's had three close calls, but this time it happened + I am heartbroken.
With the exception of a post I had already prepared for tomorrow, I am going to be taking a short break from blogging to be with my family. I mentioned to someone earlier that blogging has always served as a great distraction, so I will definitely be back at it soon.
In honor of my dad, I urge you to take a moment to consider donating your stem-cells to help cure or even just help prolong the lives of others suffering from cancer + other diseases. While my father's stem cell transplant from a donor did not cure his cancer, it gave him another precious year to be with us + we couldn't be more thankful.
Find out more about donating here.
I miss you dad. I'll love you forever. You will always be our Jamdula bonehead.

Great gold jewelry at the Isabel Marant + Balenciaga S/S 2013 shows.
I used to hate yellow gold growing up, but can't get enough of it now. Obsessed!
Until these goodies are available, get the look with this necklace + this ring.

My jaw dropped when I saw Daria Werbowy's new hair cut on the cover of Vogue Paris' November 2012 issue. I was equally thrilled when I came across the black + white portrait from the issue. Love the effortless 90s feel. Just so incredibly good! Gahhh!

I know I am late to the party on this, but just came across these backstage beauty shots from Stella McCartney's F/W 2011 show + had to share- Love those bold blue lashes! I'm thinking of trying this out with this Dior mascara. Question is, will I have the guts to go out with it on...
ps- How great does a blue lash look on Sabrina of AfterDrk?!
