I’m In It. And Into It.

I’m recounting life updates since February because this photo was taken then. I’m now in my own office next to the one I once shared at work; I have greater responsibilities that I like; I broke my car stereo- well, time must have had its way with the buttons even though Bec keeps saying I must have pressed them too hard (NO) so now I’m car shopping- yes, I know this is hardly an excuse for a new car; I’ve met a number of bloggers (LA, NYC, and Australia-based) who I heart (yeah I still use that term); my ex boyfriend and I are friends, which made me realize that life is short and you keep the ones you want in your life despite well, anything; I used to spend freely on clothes receiving packages every day- but now I haven’t held one in weeks; I bought a new kitchen table/chairs/bench, sofa, and desk chair- yes, this is life-changing because maybe Bec and I will eat at the table instead of on the couch in front of our TV . . . or if we don’t, we’ll be sitting on our super soft couch that the saleswoman deemed “The Teddy Bear Couch” . . . .

Oh yeah, and I realized how good life is. Like really good. Because even if it was a little bad one day, it was still good because I was in it. Like in in it . . . because you’ve never heard of being out of it as a good thing, right?





P.S.- I wanted to remind you to RSVP to my SLUMBER PARTY and to submit your photos! The details are below-

Who: You- because you’ve made it to Wrecked Stellar- which means you’re pretty fabulous and exclusive already. I’m also free-loving!

When: Saturday, May 8th, at 8pm

Where: Virtually at my Los Angeles pad

Why: Because you don’t want to see me sitting with several bowls of popcorn watching 16 Candles by myself- (though I totally would do that anyway)!

Activities: Barbecuing on one balcony, pretending the other balcony is a stage and dancing to the likes of “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” and “Livin’ on a Prayer”, TP’ing fraternity houses at UCLA, soaking it up in a water balloon fight, playing “Never Have I”, swooning over Jake in 16 Candles wearing our mud masks, and falling asleep tucked away in our sleeping bags with the fun moments from the night tucked away in our memories.

Attire: Pajamas- whatever form they come in for you.

How: E-mail a photo of yourself to in your attire in whatever environment and capacity you want by May 7th. You’re my guest so it’s up to you! I will post all of my guests’ photos and blog links (if you have one) in my May 8th post so that everyone can share in our party fun!

RSVP: Please RSVP in the Comments section by May 7th so I can buy enough food for everyone. xoxo

    Hey beautiful!

    how are you? 🙂

    Wow…lots of changes in your life. It definitely puts things into a perspective. Just remember every experience is a learning one and takes us to that next level 🙂

    Absolutely love that you stopped and smelled the roses. We definitely have to remember how great life is rather than focusing on the negatives 🙂 Positive = your outfit. You’re adorable!

    Mmmh so Chère Mel, your words Here sound like an altruistic lesson about “art of day to day relativization” . . . while the way you wear these leggings like a (so strongly seductive) “BODY conscious Sex Appeal” One Dear !!!

    Amicalement, Antoine

    Dang, check out your bulging calf muscle! Those shoes are smokin! I like how we both thought the perfect accessory for this shirt was a hat. xo

    First of all…love your shoes, but love this more-

    “Like in in it . . . because you’ve never heard of being out of it as a good thing, right?”

    Thank you–totally needed to hear that.
