Friday Funday

Today's resolution: lay off the f-bombs . They've been flying out of these lipstick-ed lips more often than a lady is allowed.


p.s. Dear Andrea M,
When listening to Beyonce, cat-walking, diva diva etc etc., f-bombs all the way.


Maps, wait...

I've resumed life in maps. It's strange to find comfort in watching the snowflakes fall outside the window in the library, it feels like home.

So long summer

Well today was my last day to enjoy life until summer, back to the snow, books and boredom. It rained like mad so we resorted to some indoor shopping to kill the time. I bought a few gems here and there so I'll post some pics later. Tonight I had the best dinner since I've been here, perhaps even the best dinner I've had in...ages? We went to Captain's Cove and sat alongside the ocean while the sun set. I had the seafood platter with my mother which was lobster tails, shrimp, scallops, grouper, calamari and musles. Blows my mind how great the food was and how unbelieve the servers were. Actually, it made me feel like the laziest server ever which is maybe (sometimes) half true, or so I'd like the think...

Here's a couple of pics I've been meaning to post:

A purchase I made before the trip: vintage blazer, hair bow barrette, wallet.
All from VV boutique.

A traditional Dia de los Muertos skull I bought on the trip.

Ps. I really miss summer. Specifically; riding my babe bike Genevieve, beverages while biking, patio lounging, night life, sangria, dresses, sunnies, bare legs, etc etc.

See you around,




something like love

or obsession is what I have for this mega babe.

fuhhh realzz.


puedo besar su mandillar moustache?

- can I kiss your handlebar moustache?
Meghan agrees this is the phrase for my trip.
Yesterday I arrived in Cancun, not as many mustaches as I had expected. I sadly admit though that I was somewhat envious of all the women who received a rose from their main squeeze for V-day. -Whatever. I on the other hand found happiness while cracking open a Corona and sitting on the beach. The fam and I went for a lovely oceanside dinner the Palapa but due to jetlag (or maybe a few too many Coronas) I retired to my room at..6:30 pm.

I spent the day at the beach studying Biochem, getting destroyed by waves, and inspecting sand crabs on the beach. I swear my animal physiology class has left me too intrigued with nature and animals that I feel i must 'inspect' all interesting things I come across these days.

Well, I'm too sleepy to write and it's almost time for dinner soooo see ya!

Ps. I think I'm taking sailing lessons tomorrow, yep!


she walks (not talks)

Now that lilacs are in bloom
She has a bowl of lilacs in her room
And twists one in her fingers while she talks.
"Ah, my friend, you do not know, you do not know
What life is, you who hold it in your hands”";
(Slowly twisting the lilac stalks)
"You let it flow from you, you let it flow,
And youth is cruel, and has no remorse
And smiles at situations which it cannot see.”
"I smile, of course,And go on drinking tea.“
"Yet with these April sunsets, that somehow recall
My buried life, and Paris in the Spring,
I feel immeasurably at peace, and find the world
To be wonderful and youthful, after all.”"

from Portrait of a Lady by T.S. Eliot


here no one sleeps, one lays up while the other lies down.

exams are finished and my sanity has made a run for it. I'm looking forward to my trip in a week, even if it means reading biochem on a beach. Really, what kind of horrible professor gives an exam the day people get back form reading week...

Anyways, I haven't quite decided which form this blog will take, it was originally meant to be a fashion blog (suprise suprise) but I'm not really sold on this idea these days. I imagine it will be a bit of everything I have on my mind on the daily, at least for now.

Lately I've been thinking a lot about friendships and events that have occured over the past year. I've been laying low since the end of summer and haven't really been interested much in partying or the awkward small talk you have with people that you see out almost every weekend but aren't really friends with. I've made some really rad friends over this hibernation period (?) and feel really lucky to have met these people. I guess I don't really know what else to say about it, unless you've met them then you'd know how awesome they are.

I'm going to go to bed but this video is funny. Courtesy of Aimee ( my biggest girl crush right now) and her serious giggles over this creature:

Ps. I have these two glass sculptures of a boy and a girl sitting on top of my mirror and today the girl came crashing down and shattered. I'm pretty bummed about it to say the least.

After my blog has been sitting around taking up space on the blog world since last summer I've decided I will soon put it to use. Soon soon..
