back on the face of the earth

and since I'm about to pour through all of your blogs and maybe see some of your, always pretty, outfits...here's one of mine.

and as I am sure you know, I'm a bit of an edit-addict (my friend has another term for this, but I won't be so vulgar here)...

 while spotting a spider on the ceiling...

 Detachable Collar: H&M ($5, go get one it's as warm as a scarf!)
Navy w/White Stars: Forever21(the MOST soft/cuddly sweater, get one of these too!)
Skirt: Thrifted
Tights: Target (always the warmest!)
Shoes: ASOS

P.S. Have a happy, safe New Year!
         Also, I feel like I should apologize (and/or) explain about this bedroom...you know, for it's slight creepiness and intense lack of personality and pretty; but that's a whole other story...

london. november. 2012

who knows how long it's going to take me to go through 300+ photos of England.
well here are a few for now...



I planned to blog as soon as I got back but, well, you know how life and work are. Who has time for everything? Is there a secret I don't know about? Well, I guess I just enjoy sleep too much to give it up.

basking in the afterglow...

I'm in the middle of what I hope will be a very short cold. So while I wait the sickness out and in between rounds of fluids, crackers and medication; I've been falling in love with the Afterglow app on my iphone. Sure I would love to finish all the half made jewelry pieces I have cluttering the coffee table right now (I've been in an Art Deco state of mind and they definitely show it!) or read one of the new books that are just shouting at me to be opened, but my eyes are so watery I can't focus. Instead of being the happy reader or maker of things, right now I am the wiper of eyes and the collector of tissues. My only past-time now is the Afterglow app. Go download it. It's great. I've been editing almost every photo still on my phone! Like these...
My super quick halloween outfit...
 Which is really just an outfit I'd wear any other day. 
Cliche school girl. A little Battle Royal. 
This bag is from Modcloth. It's one of my favorites now. It can hold so many books!
Just some more of Afterglow...
and a new Target dress!
and new frames from Hello Holiday! They come "plano" of course,
 but it was so easy to get my Rx put in them!
ahhh...the subtle afterglow...
