Putting the puzzle pieces together...

Its official! Everything I needed has been completed. Here was my list:
1. I wanted free transportation
2. I needed somewhere to stay that was affordable
3. I didn't want to pay a deposit
4. I needed it to be close to NYC
5. I needed my cat to be accepted
6. I did not want to pay a pet deposit

Now I'm sure some of you are probably thinking, "oh she'll never get that." I will have you know, its done and set :) Here's how...

 I originally was going to go with Penske, but I needed something smaller. Well before I called U Haul to make a reservation (which was going to cost me a dreaded 550) my dad came home and told me that Mr. Hone was happy to offer us his covered trailer. Awesome! Now I don't have to spend money towards renting something. Its FREE! One thing on my list has now been crossed off. On to my other concerns. Now I'm not a craigslist person, but that was my only option. Gave it a try and I found someone! She fits everything on my list... and I think we'll get along. FYI video chat is great for things like this. I feel very fortunate. This just goes to show that my heavenly father definitely has his hand involved in my life. Like so many times before I keep wondering if I'm going in the right direction, but I know this is just more confirmation that I am. I've been down the hard road and I'm not going back, so I suppose this is why I keep questioning my motives. Just want to make sure I'm headed in the right direction.

Speaking of direction...

I have exactly 2 weeks and 5 days left. If I really think about this transition, it definitely makes me sad. I'm leaving everything I know behind. My family, friends, familiarity, routine, etc... These days I tell myself, "what am I thinking?" and "this is crazy." Like my uncle explained to me; for every good advancement in life, there is always something we must sacrifice. This is life and part of growing up, so for now I don't focus to much on the one thought that makes me the saddest... leaving my family. It amazes me what we're willing to do and go through for the things we love and believe in. This is going to be an awesome year. Stay posted I will definitely be posting pictures of the road trip to come :)

  1. God's hand is visible when we are in His will, and it is hard for us to understand. Yet the joy we experience is uncontainable and contagious to those around us. Ephesians 3:20 says, "Now all glory to God, who is able, through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.”

Welcome Back lizsewnyc.

Update:

Originally I started this blog to show you what living in New York was like. Five years later I'm living in Florida, and A LOT has changed. How much has changed:

Here's a peek:

-I decided to move back to Texas cause I was homesick, I had accomplished what I set out to do, and I wasn't finding a full time design job.
-I had several different jobs trying to make ends meet.
-I started a pillow business, but quit.
-Put a halt on all things fashion, because I needed a restart.
-Most exciting part, fell madly in love and got married.
-Moved across country, something I said I would never do again.
-I was 27 in 2012 and now I'm 32.

For the past 5 years, I have also been trying to figure out what it is creatively that I like to do... and I'm still trying to figure it out. What I can tell you:

I love...
-Fashion
-Structure
-Drawing
-Design
-Interior design
-Art
-History
-Movies

*LOL I don't think any of that has changed.

In the midst of rediscovering myself I've also been focusin…

Fashion Fridays: Funny Face

Funny Face & Givenchy


For those of you who are not familiar with the movie Funny Face, it is about: An impromptu fashion shoot at a book store that brings about a new fashion model discovery in the shop clerk. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0050419/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1
Of course my favorite thing about this movie are the clothes. *girl daydreaming. I actually created a Bridal collection based off of the dress pictured above. It was my inspiration. 



These costumes in Funny Face had grace, structure, design, and elegance. What makes these clothes so stunning is that Hubert de Givenchy was the costume designer. 
Now when people think of Givenchy, they just think of the name, not the man behind the name. Myself personally, I think of two types of Givenchy: the original and what they are today; grunge fashion. 
This is how you pronounce Givenchy:  jhee-von-shee
Givenchy started his company in 1952, but prior to his start he was already in contact with major Fashion icons. He was recommended by Chris…

Happy Labor Day!

Lately I've been homesick. Close family and friends can vouch for this. I miss Texas and everyone in it like crazy, but then I have a moment like this:


It's not hard for me to fall in love with NYC. All I have to do is walk the streets and it's exactly where I wanna be. There's a reason they sell items that say I love NYC... it's so true!

So because it's Labor Day, and because I'm on a budget, I've decided to see what there is to do in NYC for FREE. Yes that's right folks, I just used the word free and NYC in the same sentence.

Apparently there's quite a bit to do if you look for it, but before we go down that road here's a little catching up on some other great spots.

Joe's Shanghai. Affordable and delicious.


These were seriously the BEST dumplings ever! 

I know they look really creepy weird, but don't even acknowledge it like that or else your missing out on an iconic NY moment.  How you eat them: 1. Place in spoon …
