hello me lovely readers :3
sorry ive been so absent recently,
i dropped my camera (for yet another time) and i think
i finally broke it! so no looks for now i suppose..
but that gave me a chance to look back at some ol' photos of mine
that i had stashed away.
and i even found this photo of my grandma!
she had such thick red hair back then, ive always wished she passed it
down to me, and now she gets it all done up fancy every other week :3
it's interesting, really, how much we get in the habit of things.
my gram has gone to the same salon for around 30 years!
the past two days have consisted of constant rain,
which kept me up at night.. and though im sleepy,
im taking advantage of the cool weather by going
to the book loft (32 rooms of books!) and then to Jane's
since ive been neglecting her also!
hope you all have a nice day <3

a lovely day
today was a lovely day.
i really truly lovely day, even though i had class.
i might explain later.. but i don't want to sabotage anything!
just something new and nice and that makes me smile :3
but i do wish i was back in boston or anywhere
where a sweater would be appropriate for days
that are quite as lovely as this.
hahah oh thor xp
he always makes this face at me in the
morning when he wants yet another meat treat
he's handsome, no doubt, but he's quite the handful.

it's so very hot here,
so to make myself less of a grumpy poo my mom
bought me a starbucks :3
my favourite kind too! a coffee frappucino with peppermint,
which is great because most dairy makes me feel all
sick and gross inside, but not these!
if they weren't a bazillion calories i swear id
have a starbucks drink everyday, hahah xp
tonight im going to attempt to do some work,
but i dont know how much ill get in because i have
an art ceremony tonight!
my art teacher picked me out of the entire school
because she felt my art represented what our art department
is all aboot!
so yes i have to go get all dressed fancy and
sip punch and stand like an awkward kid up on stage for
two hours.. but it's an honour none the less!
May 01, 2013
frills, and flowers and tea oh my!
my birthday is approaching!
in officially one month and 4 days, i will be a 16 year old!
and unlike many american shows may imply,
we dont' all spend a fortune on fancy parties and cars..
in fact i just want to go get tea with some friends of mine!
but i just finished my list for my family members and this is it!
i know it seems like a lot, but its really just ideas!
they all know me so well really, they always surprise me with just
the sweetest gifts and ahh they are so perfect.
as you can see, i like all this cute really.
cute and fluffy and flowery and old!
hehe i think i just described an old lady..
well i love the elderly so that's quite fitting i suppose.
arg im rambling! sigh im sorry.
ive missed writing quite alot.. i dunno ive just felt like
im a bit bland to you all right now.
i hope that's not the case >.<
but yes my birthdday!
its also the day after school is out, woo!
what do you all ask for for your birfdays?

the weather was so calming today,
it made everything look so nice and beautiful,
even my uninteresting stone front!
the top was given to me by jane, the backpack is secondhand,
the jean dress is from h&m and the shoes are asos!
i had some pasta with cheese sauce last night
wif me gma, and i found her stash of cookies back at her home xp
hahah needless to say she has quite the sweet tooth!
we watched 'glee' and 'say yes to the dress', and did the
interview in the morning.
i even bought some new sockies! like these :3
you can't tell really, but they have this lovely scallop
detail around the top.
me head feells so jumbled at the moment
i keep getting angry with myself because i focus so poorly
but im trying to stay positive since i know i have such little
time left in school.
and whenever i sit for a spell i start to get upset,
thinking i have so much else i should be doing,
but sitting is all i wish to do.
and that is all i will until i begin to feel better.

tales in stories and finds
what about the hours i spent
devising the tales i told
my fiction just to balance our
the way that your arms can pull.
if my love was a sailor
he'd use his boat for ill
to sail beyond the reach
of the one who loves him still.
what of the control it takes
to hold it behind my eyes
to stop the rushing water
when the river's too weak to try
i have my bags all packed to spend the night
up at my grams... and oh do i miss her!
i havent seen her since she took me to an appointment a week
or so ago, and i have to interview for school.
i always love to listen to her stories, and now i get to
record them too!
then on saturday, mom and i are going to an antique market
to gather more stories and things to bring some happiness
to me tiny room.
i also need to practice my driving! im quite horrid to be honest xp
April 25, 2013
schoool has been quite difficult for me recently..
well almost everything has been.
so i decided to take today off to catch up on my work,
and finally edit these photos!
im just about finished with my rose painting at school,
and next we are doing self portraits >.<
argg im quite scared. it'll be odd painting myself i think,
but here's my ideas!
the top image is the original, but my teacher wants a more
odd coloured one so we wont focus on skin tone and such.
which of the two do you all like best?
one is rosier than the other.. but i cant decide!
me hands feel like icicles because me home
feels like an igloo, and i do believe tea is the only
remedy. time to go set up the angry kettle man :3
have a lovely day!
April 20, 2013
despite looking absolutely horrid,
look at that sausage link of a dog sleepin' on me couch!
i went for a walk... a very VERY cold walk.
i would touch me arm and not even know i was because
my fingers were that numb.
so i threw on two sweaters and got my big mug full
of tea (second cup of the night, third of the day :3) and
just watched a scary episode of Doctor Who.
oh and my mom found this artist who puts photos
of the heads of animals, pets, and nerd icons on old photos!
hehe its absolutely such a laugh, my mom bought me one
that has a cat that looks like me kitty on a little girl's body.
ah me cup is empty! i must go refill..
have a lovely evening! and maybe check out my last post?
this, would be my homescreen after an hour and a half
of browsing through sarenza.com..
hahah i have never seen such gorgeous shoes in my life!
unfortunately, they don't ship to the US, but they will
remain in my thoughts and i shall draw inspiration from them.
me favourites include...
if you live somewhere in europe, hurry over to their
ive had a rather blah day of researching for school,
but i slept late with my cat which was lovely despite her drool.
oh and the brother is home!
im still marveled at how much he brought back from such an oh
so tiny dorm xp
April 18, 2013
roses, lace, and colour blocks
i know i said i was thinking of taking a break
from lookbook and what not,
and i am still, in a way.
i just get so nitpicky about the editing and how the photos
should go together that i end up ruining the look most of the time :x
so im only going to post from time to time now!
ive actually had these oxfords since the summertime,
but ive been waiting to pair them with the perfect thing...
until i found this floral dress! :3
i bought it for only $1 at the thrift store, but it went
all the way to my ankles. a little amish-y for me.
over the holiday it got hemmed, but it was cut far too short!
so i went and found this lovely lace and got that sewed on
to add some muuch needed length for me.
what do you all think?
today is such a lovely day..
70s and breezy.. and it seems as if the flowers have bloomed
overnight. oh it makes me happy, really and truly.
im so tired. i think it's
time for my favourite glass of chocolate milk and an
episode of "Castle" before i dive into my homework.

ma cheveux est difficile
most importantly, thank you
for your lovely comments
on my last video. i was down and not in the greatest
place.. but ive decided to only do looks when i feel inspired to!
not when i feel pressured to :3
anyhoo, the week is in full swing and im alrighty
in need of a nap.
also this week, i was thinking of getting a hair cut!
just a trim really, because i wont let them cut any more than that
(my hair grows like a grandma walks) but maybe new bangs?
ah i dont know.
