life according to maxx

oh hi i didn't see you guys there...it's early, what time is it? Noon?... i didn't mean for you to catch me in bed, but i was still sleeping... like always as my gran would say

but since i'm already awake guess ill get up.....'yawn'

ok ok im awake. whats up everybody, im maxx....my mom calls me maxxy poo & my dad calls me bean.....you can call me whatever you want if you rub my tummy. 

since my mommy isn't here im taking over this weird machine thing that glows for the day. my mommy is always playing on this machine so i wanted to see what all the bark was about. 

i still don't get it....i can be a little slow, i still haven't mastered 'sit' yet...and my mommy keeps pointing at my leg yelling shake...i just can't handle the pressure...thank god she gives me the treats anyways....
some may say...(gran) im sort of a lazy dog, but i really just like lounging around in my mommys bed under the covers, close up next to her as possible so she can't move..thats when im most comfortable 

but then sleeping time is over and my mommy gets outta bed which means one thing.....time to go to the bathroom! it sure can be hard holding your pee in all night long, but im such a good boy that i never pee on the carpet

please dont judge me. i don't chose to wear these things called clothes...my dad hates it too, the only time i get to be naked is when hes here....'wimper' 

ok im being dramatic i rarely wear clothes, only on cold days

after my morning pee its time for some sort of thing in which my mom yells starbucks and we get to go drive in a car with the windows down.

besides my walk this is my favorite part of the day...wait no what am i saying..eating is my favorite time of the day...speaking of eating, can i get a treat?

after our drive to some place that is always crowded with people...we go back home and my mommy gets on the glowing machine for hours on end without taking a break..sometimes she even sits on the bed with it...

ill sit with her, and play with my bone toy 

and then finally its time to go outside and take a walk...thats my cousin Lucy

and if we're lucky we get to go to this place where theres water and birds and the ground is all mushy & soft on my feet 

i never got my treat..im still hungry...my gran says im always hungry...they call me fatty sometimes...im okay with it.

but when my mommy is being annoying on that stupid glowing machine this is the face i give her when its time to feed me...it works every time...who could be mad at this adorable face?!...i use it at every advantage 

finally eating, won't take me long though...im usually done in less than a minute...

 after dinner its back on the bed for cuddles while my mommy stares at an even bigger square that glows...but this square talks

and then the square with the loud noises goes away and its quiet and i jump on my fluffy pillow bed & go to sleep.....

okay okay who am i kidding....i never sleep on this thing, my mom made me stand here & take this picture...i wasn't really happy about it...its back on the bed under the covers for me....

okay im tired now, it was a busy day....see you next time...until then peace out dudes

the dirty tay

And to think Messy Dirty Daily Tay was a nickname I tried 
so hard to get away from in middle school.
You wear your hair in dreadlocks for two months after coming home from a family vacation to the Bahamas and suddenly everyone thinks you have dirty hair....
Thirteen year olds can be so mean.

My name is Taylor and I am no longer in middle school 
(thank God)

I am actually twenty five and I live in Chicago with my two guys, Chris and Harlow.

Chris is pictured above in case you weren't sure.
And Harlow (below) is my assistant and partner in crime.
He makes sure I stay active and carry enough plastic bags with me at all times.

But enough about that, let's talk about the evolution of my 

messy dirty hair.

Figure 1- The time the hairdresser talked me into getting a "Bob."
I called it the five-year-old-Bobby cut.

Figure 2- (right beside it) This is me growing out said Bobby.
I call it the San Diego shag because that's where I was living at the time.
I was also working for the Men In Black it would appear by my sunglasses.

Figure 3- (below Bobby) This is the product of me growing out the shag/cutting my own bangs.
It didn't work.

Figure 4- Jessica Simpson hair extensions in the house!
Sadly the box did not warn me about swimming in the ocean with these on spring break.
They didn't make it home from Acapulco 2007.

Figure 5- More homemade bangs.
And glued in extensions...

Figure 6- The "big city Chicago" cut. 
No more extensions. No more bangs.
For now...

I also just started a site called The Browse,
the blogging society at its best.

You should stop by and see who's being featured this week, maybe it's you!

Thanks again, Kelly, for having me on your wonderful site!

F*ck it! It's Friday!

FRIDAY! thank god you are here! This week has been busy busy building blogs & company websites! I think I even pulled a muscle in my back from sitting at my desk too long because it is KILLING me....but take a look at the most recent blog design I just finished for a FABULOUS girl who is just starting her blog so go & say hello!...& sidenote: this is just a picture from my iphone, so please excuse the poor quality 

Mascara & Moscato

What is fearless fashion fridays? Well have you ever seen a trend that you LOVE but are too afraid to try it yourself? Or have you tried a new trend & wanna strut your self? Or are you just obsessed with fashion!? Well that's what FFF is all about. It doesn't matter how you display it we just want to see the fashion! 

sooo today I am going to talk about another trend that I am dying to try this summer! It is an old fashion look but it's coming back ---

High Waisted Swimsuits! 


in all honesty i absolutely HATE being in a bikini, which sucks for me considering I am at the beach 24/7...so I really love this alternative look to a tiny bikini because it covers up a little more skin but not enough to make it a one piece. Plus it's just so trendy & fun. I love being fearless when it comes to clothes, it really gives me a chance to be original. 

Sooo if I had to pick one of the swim suits above I would want this print because is has such a hippy feel too it but minus the open ties on the side...thats a little much for me. 

so that is the trend I will be trying come this summer....I just need to find the perfect one & see if I can actually pull it off since I am short. Would you try the high waisted swim suit trend? Linkup with us & let us know your fearless fashion!

#TheMessyProject --- 2 into 1

its baaaaaaaaackkkkk!!!!!!

Welcome back to Round 7 of #TheMessyProject!!! If you are new around here & have yet to hear about the project, you can check out all the info HERE..... but here's just a quick little intro to help you get more acquainted to the project  ----> 

new button coming next month!!!!! 

so i'm not gonna lie, i wasn't really sure what I wanted to do for this round of the project. i had a few ideas i was going back & forth with but then i saw this. Its was simple & plain but the possibilites were endless. You could literally do anything with it. Plus I wanted to touch on a trend that a lot of people love but have yet to take the leap & try it....what's that trend you ask? Ohhhh well that would be the Chambray shirt, but I upped it a little & got a Chambray Button Down Shirt Dress with Tie!

so many options were going through my head as to what to do with this fabulous light weight shirt dress....so in true messy project fashion I challenged myself, stepped outside of the box & turned this shirt dress into a normal button down shirt!
sooo i tucked it in & removed the tie...the shirt dress was light weight enough to be tucked in without any bulge ( ie making it totally obvious that I just tucked in a freaking dress ). Then I decided to pair it with my dark flared jeans to contrast with the light jean & added my leather, open toed Steve Madden wood platforms for a spring feel.
I love the way gold looks against this blue color so I added gold accessories, which included 2 long necklaces....& finished my outfit with the perfect pair of gold rimmed Ray Bans. 

action shot - messy hair - day 5
so as you can see this shirt dress has many different way to wear it because it's not only a dress but it can also be worn as a shirt, so it's like 2 outfits in one! 
How would've you worn the shirt dress? Have you ever taken an item clothing & changed it into something completely different than what it was?
Wanna see how everyone else did?!....& boy did they all do something different! Take a look >>
