Retouching @ Forever21

I’ve been so busy lately with my new job at Forever 21 HQ in Lincoln Heights! I’m loving it! & after only a few short months I’m now head retoucher for Men’s Flats as well as little Girl’s!

Still correcting and sorting through lots of old edits, but here is some of my work!

Ikea wishlist

there are so many items I love from Ikea! I love having the ability to buy great simple design products for affordable prices! When I was in college I bought several pieces for my apartment there and to this day still have them! Now that sometime in the foreseeable future I hope to move to LA, I’ve been looking on Ikea again! I know, I’m horrible. Really the 1 thing I might buy is a new bed frame, mine is simply too large and heavy to take with me…But hey! no harm in looking and wanting things! So here’s some of the things I want:

1. ALEX drawer unit – this would be perfect for me! I think my printer would fit on top(maybe if the paper slots werent open) – I have a very large printer for printing my portfolio(prints up to 13×19 prints), and i could put all my larger paper inside. 🙂

2. DUKEN bed frame – This would be the bed frame I would buy. Simple, light, and $199. I love the cushion-y head board..& that its a grey cover so if it gets dirty, you can wash it.

3. MICKE desk – if I needed a new desk this would definitely be the desk I would buy, only $69. And I love that it has drawers! something that my current desk lacks.

4. NORDLI nightstand – this is the ultimate nightstand! why you ask? it has an outlet inside which you plug in from a cord coming off one of the legs, completely hidden! I am a huge fan of hidden cords and plug ins! But since its $79 and I don’t need a new nightstand, this will not be a purchase I will be making anytime soon. 😛



My favorite purchase of furniture that I currently own from Ikea would have to be….


This MALM occasional table – It sits in front of my bed against a wall with my tv mounted on the wall above. Whats so great about it is that its on casters and was made to slide over your bed to use as a table! So theoretically I can sit in bed and work on my computer while its right on the desk over my legs! I say “theoretically” because my current bed frame is very large and I have my bed fairly high, so unfortunately I cannot do this right now :(. But the fact that I could do this excites me! And once I get rid of my large bed frame I will be very happy to have this piece of furniture.
