Big Surprise!

It's raining.

I love how true Seattleites handle the rain. No hustle in their walk, no hood over their head. They just take it.

It's been one of those weeks where you're just too tired to do anything and i'm amused by my hair's ability to frizz.
I'm also in the process of deciding whether to take a nice walk and sit down for tea while I study or to stay in where there's a nice comfy bed.

The bed might win.

Pleased to Meet You

There is paper all over my floor because my printer went into a fritz.
Bread crumbs are all over my couch because i eat my tuna sandwich with vegan bread.

Good day Tuesday.

I was just treated to a promotional facial at Nordstrom. Not quite like lying back in a relaxing room but i'll take it.
Plus, it's fun pretending you're best friends with someone for 45 minutes.

Smooth Moon

This dress is perfect for how cold it's been and I love the royal blue paired with a soft pink, it's so soft and feminine.

Ah, she's still got it.

Ani was sensational last night. I've been concerned that she's losing her fire, since she's fallen in love with a man and released an album with more love toned anthems.
The fire's still there.

La la love you

Ok, so this is an anything but a void of black outfit but today is an anything but spring day.
This rain is so romantic, i will only complain about it when it has rained for three weeks straight and by that point anyone would need some sun.

Clouds + rain = perfect study weather.

Happy Thursday!

Animal Instinct

Starting to feel a little sick of black at the moment. Never thought i would hear myself say that, and i don't think i'll ever be able to completely void it out of my wardrobe, but we'll see how this translates into later posts. I'm willing to pin this ailment on spring. Sun and flowers and birds and bare feet and evening drives!

I saw a picture of Ms. Li the other day looking so wild, like such an animal.
It was wonderful. Unfortunately, all of her talent seemed to be used up on the first album.

Ramble on

This shirt is nearing the end of its life, though i can't quite find it in me to throw it out yet.
My kitchen floor needs mopping, and one of my favourite things to do? Clean in heels. Maybe not their intended purpose, but it works for me.

Signs of spring

There's nothing like yoga, a hot shower, coffee at Stumptown and math homework on a saturday morning. One day that to do list will be minus the homework plus gardening/sewing/baking/reading/taking the dog for a walk (yes, i'm a homemaker at heart).
Spring feels so good.

Sharif don't like it


This outfit is so comfortably wrinkled.
I've been able to hide under my coat all morning, snuggled up in my chair. I love letting the back of my shirt come untucked, it makes me feel like i've been successfully moving around!

Pins & Needles

This is tricky, blogging without a proper camera or any type of photo editing. It's kinda like setting my artistic ego on pins and needles.
We'll just call this the fun phase: the phase between starting a blog and getting serious about it.

... and classes begin

First day of classes for the quarter, and rather than dealing with more textbook/bookstore woes i'm going to stay inside out of the rain and make myself a birthday cake!
Better than having finals on your birthday.

Happy Monday!
