Luna Off Duty is officially, of this day, 1 year old! It was quite a year, 2012 was. So glad to be done with it but have learned plenty plenty plenty. I went to New York City for the first time in my life and it was incredible, I became a senior in high school, I turned 18.
By this time next year I'll be halfway through my first year of college and hopefully be having the time of my life! This year I'm dedicating myself to a more organized life (maybe starting with closet and desk? Yeah good idea, baby steps) and to this blog! I'm glad it got to where it did over the course of a year, but I can do better than that! So here we go, 2013, a year of loving and blogging and dancing and singing.

Cobblestone lanes are not all that common in Singapore, believe it or not. But when I stumble across them, figuratively and literally in the case where I'm wearing heels such as these, I'm amazed. After a glorious day of shopping on Haji Lane, we made our way up to Duxton Hill for dinner at Broth (highly recommended if you're visiting Singapore and...well...have a pretty loose budget). I bought these pants earlier this day in one of the greatest shops in existence called Soon Lee that I could easily spend the rest of my life in. Hopefully soon, Annika and I will do a thorough exploration of Haji Lane and share our findings and favorite stores with you. For now, I leave you with this outfit post of Soon Lee pants, Jessica Simpson heels, Urban Outfitters top, and jewelry from Haji Lane.

It's been a good while now since I last posted wearing this dress, and as it's one of the most comfortable things I own and perfect for adding to with accessories, or simply wearing to paint, I think it's high time I bring it back. I finally got back around to painting this after a whole semester of working in three dimensions, which has been incredible. Maybe at the end of the year I can post some of what I've been working on - it's really exciting! I hope you all had wonderful holidays and I'll be back with more in the new year! 2013 baby.
By the way, this is Scout, my golden baby. She bids you all good day.

 I just wanted to share some of my favorite works of art from all of history with all of you. After having taken AP Art History last year and absolutely falling in LOVE with it, I couldn't help but post my favorite paintings, photographs, and sculptures. As this is a place for mostly photographic art, I wanted to incorporate all I could. This is part one of 2, maybe 3, maybe 100 of my favorite works, categorized by color themes. Here we have the more monochromatic artworks. Enjoy loves!

daydream riviera

Is it too much to ask to spend another summer in the French Riviera? Okay the answer is probably yes, but regardless, I just saw Tuula's post about her travels there this summer and it is making me soooo homesick...even though it's not home. Regardless, it's like a part of my soul lives there and has been living in this state of near-death since we left in 2009. I NEED TO GO BACK.

morning rambling

the best mornings by far are defined by how productive i am, at least for me. tea then yoga? my day is already set off to an amazing start. thrown in an hour-or-so of simultaneous blog snooping/doctor who episode watching before working on my art history research paper? booyah. plus a full playlist of unreleased lana del rey and marina and the diamonds' new stuff? today's gonna rock.

Opal Essence

{a detail of the coins on my bag}

Taken at the straights of vivo city between the main Singapore island and it's sister Sentosa, now home to Resorts World Sentosa (including Universal Studios). Back when I had long hair, oh boy oh boy oh boy! Keeping an otherwise far-too serious look fresh with my beloved cream Converse.

Brooklyn Bound

I'd give you a minute-by-minute run-down of my entire 48 hours in NYC, but I'd rather not bore you all to death so here is my film from my Holga. Enjoy.
