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. 🙂

little drops of rain whisper of the pain

Well, not to be depressing but some not-good news on the kitty front. Took her to the vet today because her eating has still been…well, basically non-existent (I’ve been forcing high-calorie gel down her throat). Vet – very nicely – said that it’s pretty much looking like her time. Her system is shutting down. 😦

I couldn’t be sadder. I mean, I’ve known this was coming but still…ugh, I’ve been literally sobbing ALL day except when I was in class for a few hours (and am insanely proud of myself that I held it together for that). I did lose it a little in my group meeting before class, and my group members were so nice to me and didn’t make me feel like a crazy cat lady.

Anyway, we gave her one more steroid shot to try to boost her appetite and, essentially, buy a little more time but I think we’re talking a week or two at the most. This is one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make, but I want to make the right decision for HER and give her a happy and peaceful end to a great, long life.

I took this picture of her tonight because it cracks me up when cats sort of faceplant when they sleep – how do they breathe??

Always my goofy girl. Love you, kitty.

So, I didn’t do much today other than cry and go to school, but here are a few pics I’ve found recently online and love.

Hello, DIY project!

Or I guess you could buy them this way from free people for $128.

And I love these nude lace-up wedges – so modern and yet lengthen the leg nicely

Way out of my price range at Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair but I came across them via the awesome blog Vanilla Scented.

Okay, I LOVED, I mean seriously LOVED the original Melrose Place in the 90s (and even more so when I rediscovered it on SoapNet a few years ago but then the bastards dropped it)…and had VERY low expectations for the new version that premiered tonight on the CW, but actually it’s not as bad as I thought it would be! I’m excited to see some of the original characters/actors. I’ll watch again.
