First five black and white are by James Ravilious, English countryside photographer. The two colored photos are by Lucinda Dodds. Last two are by Wouter Brandsm. I came upon some of Lucinda’s photos a while ago, and it is on her flickr that I discovered James Revilious. From there I found a lot of Ravilious-inspired photos — so many of which make me want to be ...
New Year's Resolutions
1. Stop making odd faces in pictures. I can’t wait to be ‘normal’. 2. Live in the Moment. Spend less time on the computer, do my homework early, go out with friends more, lose pounds (typical new year’s), etc. 3. Reduce money spent at Forever 21 by vast amounts. Forever 21 is the devil, an addiction, and an all too easy solution to solving boredom even if all you...

I am really happy Trey wanted to watch A Woman is a Woman. It was unlike modern movies, even unlike some movies of Godard’s time, Anna was silly, and the movie was insightful. The visual imagery was wonderful and inspirational. Read more here.
Easy Oreo Truffles
I plan to make these for New Years. I am not sure if I will make them with Oreos, or use another cookie instead. I will post results if they turn out well (otherwise they were either a disaster or I forgot to either take a photo and make them at all. Leaving you with a lot of options). Recipe: 1 pkg. (1 lb. 2 oz.) Oreo Chocolate Sandwich Cookies, finely crushed, divided 1 pkg. (8...

St. Petersburg, before Tron
Boyfriend and I before we saw Tron, hanging out around the St. Pete docks, eating fusion food with our friend Laura (not shown :( pictures came out blurry in the restaurant), deer, Kiss Barbie Christmas tree ornament, and a hidden paper crane.
I will admit, lately I have been lazy using the internet for my betterment. While stuck at work with no work to do (it’s not as fabulous as it sounds… okay, maybe it is) I have spent a great deal on stumbleupon and facebook. More accurately, sharing the things I find on stumbleupon with facebook, thus rendering me geeky and as having too much time on my hands. I won’t admit to...
Before going out for a semi-formal a few days ago. Trey has more pictures that may make their way up later. I wore a faux Banana Republic shawl mom is allowing me to borrow and sequin royal blue dress.
The Picture of Dorian Gray
It’s impossible to be unaffected by others, and let this shape you, but never allow someone else to define the lines of your self. I wish I could have a sisterhood as men have brotherhood, but a lot of girls don’t feel comfortable in their own company and believe they can only find consolation if in the arms of a man. I’m not saying we host a bra burning ceremony and hold each...
If you haven’t figured it out yet aside from the occasional buckles, studs and leather, I am really in to things that are simple and classic. Maybe if you were to go into my bedroom it would say otherwise (my walls are a color called fairytale blue… think about it). But considering the size of my room (small) and the amount of things I have in it (a lot), it’s not too...
The Simple Tree
Why so little posts lately? Ever since my break began five days ago I have been actively idle. Yes, it’s possible. Not to say I have been overachieving at school the semester before (although, my grades weren’t too shabby. Try less, earn more? Another life mystery left unsolved), but school is really time consuming and well, tends to be boring. The classes are huge and a lot of the...
A well of scents
It is getting colder, which means I can wear furry things with no abandon! Worry not PETA, this is faux. Worn with my current favorite boots and a lot of black. I am not exactly sure at what I was laughing, but Trey was taking these pictures and I tend to burst out when he is around. You can understand why we’re dating, I love laughing! I had exam week, meaning I was busy and bummy,...
Keira Knightley is one of my favorite actresses to watch in any time piece. Is it her accent? Her pretty high cheek bones? I’m not sure what it is, but I loved her as The Dutchess. The movie was no Marie Antoinette, but the costumes were still really beautiful and the story compelling (and partly true). I recommend watching it if you have a couple of spare hours and like...

The Red Hair Blues
Call me creepy if you must (because that’s how I feel, actually, posting pictures of bloggers for their beautiful red hair) (except Eniko, who is a model and adorable and well, in reality, not a red-head), but for a good while I have been yearning (mmm) to lighten my own hair so it will appear reddish. This usually happens if I am out in the sun, but this summer I hardly ...
Remembering a thousand autumns
It takes about a whole semester, until the very last couple of weeks, when I finally admit I don’t like the so-and-so-very-difficult-science class I’ve been fooling myself into thinking is not so bad (and perhaps others around me). The Likely Senario: Molecules stand no chance! To know them, become them, think like them, you will act like them. Then you will know them. But then...
One Shoe Love
Don’t shoe agree these boots are amazing? Har Har. I attempted to wear my baggy Euro pants that I secretly love along with them. Worn with a white (faux) leather jacket that is really warm and easy to wear. I have only had them for a couple of weeks but I have managed to wear them with a variety of things (impressive? I think so.) In all seriousness, these boots are amazing. Even...
Letter in November
Two weeks late, but here is a sneak peek at my One Year Anniversary weekend with my baby bird :)
