*Time of the year

It's that time of year again. A time when "Hey Marisa, want to go take pictures for the blog?" is code for "Hey Marisa, want to go freeze your fingers off while you snap pictures and stand helpless amidst the cold blasts of wind coming from every direction?". She's a trooper, I tell ya. Sandy was kind enough to pass by North Carolina with nothing more than some unwelcome below-50 degree weather and overcast skies. And, might I add, no rain, so the suede shoes were safe. 
My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by Hurricane Sandy - I hope all stay safe and dry (and go invest in some Hunter rain boots for future inclement weather!)

*Four eyes

[Glasses: Urban Outfitters, Dress (worn as blouse because I'm dumb and got a size too small): Urban Outfitters, Skirt: F21 (similar), Shoes: Zara (similar)]

If your first thought upon viewing this post was "this girl is a four eyes?!", then 1.) middle school called - they want their joke back and 2.) the joke is on YOU because I, in fact, have excellent eyeballs. Don't say that to my parents though...I just recently broke the news to them that when I was in elementary school I faked having bad vision to get some super hip purple Hush Puppies glasses. Didn't need them, but my selfish seven-year-old self concluded that the only way I could be a cool first grader was to completely fake the vision test and plead my parents to buy me a pair. Diabolical, yes, even at that age. I'm not sure if I want to go back in time and punish Adolescent Al for such a stunt or high-five myself. Probably the latter.

*Technology

Oh, the wonders of technology. One day you are praising the tech gods that you are able to check Facebook, Twitter, and every other social media known to man while you wait in line at the grocery store/mail office/bathroom...the next, you are cursing those higher powers for managing to uproot your entire electronic life and laugh that villain laugh as you scramble to pick up the pieces.
Well, at least that's what happened to me. This weekend was stressful, to say the least, as both my computer and phone decided to implode...erasing all of my photos, contacts, messages, and documents. It felt like I lost my right hand. No, my entire right arm. Luckily, my dad saved the day while I was at home on break and managed to retrieve almost everything. Crisis averted.

*The Swing: Fall Fashion


Check out my latest video for The Swing (shot and co-edited by my wonderful friend Derek Scully...and shout out to Catherine Leonard for covering audio!). If you can't tell, they both had me laughing hysterically the entire time...there were Nerf guns and a whole lotta One Direction involved in this shoot.

*Gold Digger

Much like a bird, I am attracted to shiny objects. Specifically, shiny apparel. More specifically, these pants. I was making my way through Target when I discovered a gold mine (pun intended) of fall fashion faves covering the racks in the clothing section. Of course, like my animal counterpart, this sparkling pair caught my eye. So, naturally, I forgot that I was there for only wrapping paper and milk and spent the subsequent 45 minutes trying on every pair of pants I could scavenge. Success? Depends on how you define that. If you are referring to me finding my true love in pants form on a clearance rack for $12, then yes, it was a success. But if you are talking about whether I walked out of Target with the ONLY two items on my list, then no. I forgot the milk.
