It seems summer has reached it's ultimate peak these past few days! The sweltering 100 degree weather has left me either melting outdoors or locked up inside with only a t-shirt on, fan blasting. I'm currently doing the latter and let me tell you, a hot aluminum laptop burning my legs is far from ideal for the moment. I digress. Besides, it's been ages since I've updated all of you on anything!
Hmmm...what to get started on. This week has been absolutely C R A Z Y . I had the pleasure of going to the De Young with my best friend Kaddie to see the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit which was phenomenal. If any of you live around the bay area, I highly suggest going before it ends (next week)! I went in thinking it would only take about two hours max to view the display from start to finish, but it ended up taking over three hours. Each showroom was so intricate, and seeing JPG's couture pieces in person was...well, breathtaking. Like I said, try to go if you can!
The day after visiting the Gaultier exhibit, I went skydiving! Instead of doing the 9,000ft drop that most people do, my friends and I decided to try the 13,000ft drop. Best decision ever, since it made our free fall a full minute instead of thirty seconds! This was the first time I'd ever been skydiving, and the feeling of falling is completely indescribable. I was so overwhelmed with excitement, anticipation and nervousness. I was the first of my friends to jump from the plane, and my stomach dropped when I had to lean over the edge, feet sticking out past the floor and all. After jumping, I felt an overwhelming sense of bliss, alongside an intense adrenaline rush. The sky was clear, the air was crisp and cool and the open fields below were breathtaking. If I had the funds, I would jump again in a heartbeat. I plan on going again in the future, hopefully doing 18,000ft this time!

Since anything with sleeves is currently a death sentence, I've been stripped down to single layers *sheds tear*
Over accessorizing with jewelry helps balance out my crazy eclectic need for tons and tons of layers and prints. This day in particular I felt a bit uninspired, so I was lacking in personal creativity. Meh. I guess everyone has bad days, right?

Have a great weekend everyone!
ps: to those of you who live in North America, are you going to watch the Perseid meteor shower this weekend? It's going to be at its peak late Saturday/early Sunday. I'm really looking forward to gazing out onto the sky & enjoying the show, I hope some of you get the chance to do the same!
