Stay cool but look hot in the warm weathered winter. When I moved from Colorado to California for college I knew the one thing I would not miss was winter. I hated everything about it: driving in the snow to school, waking up to the cold weather, and most importantly having to wear layers upon layers of sweaters.

Art is a mentality for living life. It's audacity in imagination, the desire to create something new, and most importantly, a willingness to be inspired by sp...
