it’s like my ipod’s stuck on replay, replay

Ah, Tuesday night, the night I have designated for myself as no homework, cooking dinner, and watching the new Melrose Place. Such a great guilty pleasure. I loved the old one, and so expected to hate the new one, but they’ve done a great job of modernizing it while keeping the old vibe. I especially love the character of Ella (played by Katie Cassidy), she’s the new Amanda (Heather Locklear’s character in the old show). She has great style and makeup, too.

And they even got crazy tonight and had Ella make out with another girl! In the old MP, they ended up cutting a proposed kissing scene between two openly gay guys because they decided people would freak out. It’s so annoying how people don’t mind two girls making out (typical guy response in my experience when this topic comes up: “ooh, can I watch??”) but two guys even having a kiss makes people freak out.

Okay, enough about Melrose Place. I don’t have any new original photos to offer (although I did find my camera!) because I’ve been so busy and wearing boring clothes, but I have some inspiration from other sites.

This is probably a bad idea for a permanent tattoo, but I think these are gorgeous pearl-and-chain fake tattoos from Chanel Spring/Summer 2010

From hey crazy

I don’t know, I’ve been wanting another tattoo for years and although I wouldn’t put permanent free advertising for Chanel on my body, I might take the idea of the chains, pearls, and birds somewhere. Filed away in my imagination.

I want this girl’s hair so much. I mean, I’d take her body and face, too, but I think the hair actually might be attainable, it’s similar to mine in many ways. I’d just have to take a little time to actually style mine. Filed in my little brain under Spend-More-Than-Five-Minutes-On-Your-Hair.

Everyone in the fashion blogosphere (can’t believe I just used that word) is going nuts over these Louise Goldin shoes for Topshop, and I guess I’m no exception…

And if I was gorgeous like Katie Shillingford, I’d totally do my hair like she has

Finally, one last gorgeous thing: Kate Moss in this photo from Topshop

The girl has still got it. 🙂

please, please, please, let me get what i want

November 12, 2009 at 1:04 am (Uncategorized)

I did something today that might change some things in my life – it’s nothing huge to most people, I suppose, but I hope it works out well for me. So, I’ve got my fingers crossed. Will update with more details if it works out…and I think (hope) it will!

I still haven’t been taking photos. I’ve been ridiculously busy with school.

So, I have fun photos of things I would love to own…most of which are not fashion or beauty related.

I want this SO MUCH – you can sync this wristwatch to your Blackberry using bluetooth and then check emails and the like from your watch…


I really want someday to have a Tumbleweed Tiny House. I’ve always felt that my 880 sq. ft. house is more than ample for me and could happily live in less, and I love these wee houses. I love that you can put them on wheels and therefore they are not required to have permits, so you can drive them all over the United States and park them on any RV lot…


How great are these Converse rain boots??


And I adore this collection of stationary from 16Sparrows


I love this bike, too, but at $700…eek!

I should have more updates soon. In the meantime, keep your fingers crossed for me that things go the way I want them to! I appreciate you all reading.

but we cannot cling to the old dreams anymore

I still don’t know where my camera is! So I have no new outfit photos. I must remedy this situation over the weekend when I clean my house.

I give you instead some inspiration pics. We will start with the amazing Kate Lanphear, Style Director at U.S. Vogue, who is so gorgeous and stylish to me.

Holy amazing, I just love her androgynous and clean style. If my hair wasn’t unruly wavy, I would cut it like hers.

I think that’s all for tonight. I’m up to my ears in schoolwork and studying. Thanks for reading!
