I'm determined to make my nails sparkle like Mariah Carey in Glitter, only less Mariah and more Lady Gaga

A success story if I ever saw one. Minus I have to lose the turquoise ring.

WOOPS. Big apologies to all for the lack of updates over my vacation. First, my domain name expired and apparently the email was sent to junk mail. Now a lucky Australian has, but don't fret, I am trying to get it back. Next, my computer died...I knew I should have brought both laptops! Finally, I was just having too much damn fun.

Here are a few pictures (albeit, I did not bring my fancy camera and resorted to the trusty iphone four to capture what few moments I deemed eventful and mostly comprised of my nephew, Brighton):

It's my 24th birthday. While so much has changed in my life recently (the bad and the good of course) it is so important to me to recap the happiest moments and thus why I started my blog. I wanted to share every detail with those who matter regarding travels, music, fashion, and anything else that struck me.

Fashion aside (because I could go on for centuries), here are a few happy moments I have appreciated/look forward to now:

  {an orchid from a rep and now, friend}
{the opportunity to see both my dearest friend, and all of my siblings}
{rare, rainy weather which means living inside of a cloud!}
{new year, new travels}
{new friendships, new love, and the certain growth of current ones}

xo, colby
To the tune of 'Row, Row, Row Your Boat' :

Front row for the show,
With the Harpers Team,
Head to toe in Moschino,
Mummy looks like a dream this book my roommate bought her niece. superficial babies... what now?!

A Worthwhile Cause

Hi everyone:) If you could all do me a huge, huge favor and help a friend out by visiting this facebook page and 'LOVING' the video (button is located directly under the video) I'd be so grateful. Ford is giving one non-profit organization 10,000 dollars towards the cause based on the number of people who 'love' these videos. This is a cause very dear to me, and it would mean a lot if you could take a second of your time to vote.

:) Thanks a lot,
ps. tomorrow is my birthday!!!

A few recent purchases. Can't wait to fur-ify my Converse as seen here. I may wear the fringe with this jumpsuit on NYE because I'm most likely not going to be in Vegas, so I figure I'll take a little Vegas with me. Okay a lot of Vegas. I don't know... I just want to shake around all night so my fringe dances with me.

turban: YSL scarf; necklace: vintage; top: american apparel; shorts: joie; boots: elizabeth and james
Let me sum up my birthday downtown-bar-crawl with the text I sent my friend this morning:
"Last night was the most random, ridiculous birthday party I've ever had. It included being filmed for Ashton Kutcher's new reality show about 80-year-olds partying with 20-year-olds...and that was at the FIRST bar. I wake up with this on my arm, courtesy of our CEO, and a shirt with a giant cat on it. May be going to a cactus farm today."
A few more shots. You get the idea.

Four or five years ago my Aunt and Uncle stopped giving gifts and started making donations in mine and my siblings names. They would choose a charity for each of us that they thought best represented our personalities (all different!) and our interests. Last year, I decided to follow suit and made a donation to the Beauty Bus in the name of my extended family.

This year, I've chosen an organization that means a lot to me because it is a close friend's. The organization is SANEJO which means "building tomorrow's generation." The story behind the roots of the organization and it's start is a really cool story I'd love to share sometime but the real grabber is the reason why they started it. His name is David and his grandfather was murdered in the genocide that took place in Rwanda. He was birthed out of wedlock in a secret affair with a nobleman. As he grew he discovered the secret to success was hard work and determination and therefore he set out to learn all he could and to give the gift of knowledge to all of those around him not fortunate enough to go to school. Eventually he and his sons and daughters were killed, leaving just one daughter left to carry his legacy. She had a son, David, who now lives on as part of that legacy.

David and his crew are working with Australian organization "Y-GAP" to build a school and community center in Rwanda so that the children there may also be fortunate enough to learn and prosper. 

This Christmas, Sanejo is offering the unique opportunity to help rebuild Ntenyo Primary School in Rwanda.

30,000 bricks are needed to build one classroom in Ntenyo:
$20 will purchase 400 bricks
$50 will purchase 1000 bricks
$100 will purchase 2000 bricks

I've donated on behalf of my friends and family already and I would love it if any one of you could find it in your heart to donate this Christmas. Even just $5 will buy 100 bricks for these childrens' school.

To donate go to Sanejo's site and click the donate button on the left side. I printed out certificates to give my family members on Christmas day!
