Long Time

Been kinda m.i.a. for a bit, but that's justified by the holidays. I may or may not be back diligently come the new year, due to a new job and me franticly trying to find my head amidst it all.

Anyway, on that note I will post a few of my newly acquired items (watch, teacups etc) at a later date, and till then will leave you with this creepy as fuck picture from the haunting spread over at the online magazine, Cheek:

To hear many religious people talk, one would think God created the torso, head, legs and arms, but the devil slapped on the genitals.

Das Park Hotel

Can be found in Linz, Austria. I think when I go back, maybe I will stay here:

This unique hotel has transformed standard concrete sewer pipes into hotel rooms, simply by giving them a back wall and large front door, and drilling a window in the side for a little bit of natural light.

Happy Christmas to me!!

I just bought these lovelies over at modcloth and am extremely happy to get them in the mail in a couple of weeks. For only $19 shipping, this makes me quite happy. Even if it is American prices.

First ever online shopping, huzzah!

Them kids

Are much tougher then you or I will ever be.

They also probably died of lung cancer.

PS: I currently have a cat lying in my arms like a baby, and we're just chillin together. He does make typing difficult though.

Thank you Siri, for helping me decide what colour to dye my hair in January:

Are women as horny as men?

This video...oh man...

I agree with the bloggers over at filthygorgeousthings, most men are "just a little less uncouth about the whole thing".

Oh Daria,

The things you do...

How can I not like you when you go and pose with a beautiful bike in the deserts of Utah?

Pretty much.

If you go home with someone and they don't have any books, don't fuck them.

I wish my parents had kept me in ballet. I figure I'm pretty graceful as it is, but I honestly wish I were able to just break out in beautiful traditional and contemporary ballet dancing.

Dear Santa Pt. 2


Here we go again...more pictures of a beautiful girl who is encouraging me to colour my hair.

Mum? Is that you?

I encourage you to check out this lovely girls blog; it is filled with beautiful clothing and lovely backgrounds.

Swedes for the win!

Is the name of the game.

My mind is wandering everywhere except my comparative sociology paper.

I want to dye my hair...It has been mahogany, black, strawberry blonde, red, and dark brown. Basically, my hair has been every 'normal' hair colour that there is out there...except blonde. Like really blonde. Because of course, when I was a little girl, I had curly blonde hair.

Now my hair is back to its natural colour...which is light brown.

I think in the New Year I'll go have a sit down with Ebony and ask her opinion on the matter.

...I'm ready to be done exams and papers, thank you very much.

Dear Robyn,

May this imagery provide you with the inspiration for your Sociology paper:

You're still one of my favourite artists.


“Boy, these conservatives are really something, aren’t they? They’re all in favor of the unborn. They will do anything for the unborn. But once you’re born, you’re on your own. Pro-life conservatives are obsessed with the fetus from conception to nine months. After that, they don’t want to know about you.”

- George Carlin

Have I mentioned...

That one day I will collect teacups and display them on a beautiful dessert stand?

I think I get more girly by the year.

Also on the list for collection:

Dear Santa

Do I want an oversized watch, or a petite one?

La Mer Oversized Vintage Watch

La Mer Petite Watch

In general I am a fan of menswear styles, and like the idea of a large watch face on my tiny little wrist...but I also like the idea of having a petite and dainty one.

Either are on my Christmas list.

Normalizing Disabilities

Because I just wrote an exam on it, and because this woman is beautiful and an accomplished athlete, model, and spokesperson for people living with disabilities:

Aimee Mullins - (born 1976 in Allentown, Pennsylvania) is an American athlete, actress, and fashion model best known for her extraordinary collegiate-level athletic accomplishments, despite a disability that resulted in the amputation of both of her legs.She was born with fibular hemimelia (missing fibula bones) and had both of her legs amputated below the knee when she was just one year old. While attending Georgetown University she competed against able-bodied athletes in NCAA Division I track and field events and set Paralympic records in 1996 in Atlanta in the 100-meter dash and the long jump. She says she will have realised one of her ambitions when people describe her as “Aimee Mullins, the model”, rather than “Aimee Mullins, the disabled model”.


Ish wrote a couple of weeks ago about a 13 year old girl who committed suicide after the repercussions of what started off as a harmless "sext" became public knowledge to her school, her teachers and her parents. I think she summarizes quite nicely that had it not been for the negative reactions of her school and her parents, and the shaming that transpired, this girl probably would not have killed herself. I doubt anyone of her friends told her, "Hey, it's ok. So you sent a naked text of yourself to john doe, you shouldn't be's just nudity...and it's just a body. Something most people have seen before, because hey whaddya know, they have one too."

Ish also discusses the laws that surround things like this, i.e. is it considered underage pornography, what do we do about the non-consensual spreading of the message etc...

The following quote, I feel, sums the situation up nicely:
As Veronica Arreola said on her Twitter, while the media insists on calling this a “sexting-related suicide,” it’s much more accurately referred to as a “slut-shaming suicide.” Because the photograph she sent is not what drove this poor girl to kill herself — the non-consensual spreading of the photograph, and the subsequent reaction that her classmates and all adults in positions of authority had to it seems to absolutely have been what drove her to despair. And that is a truly vital distinction to make if we actually care about the fact that a 13-year-old girl is dead, and why.

Red dress


I have one very similar to this, except rather than the lovely neckline on this one, mine has a much more 40's sweetheart cross-over neckline.

Regardless, I want to own a cute little belt similar to this one so that I can complete the look.

...I quite enjoy wearing dresses in the winter.

Kiki's Birthday

Last year I was invited to Kiki's birthday at Ish's place and we all enjoyed yummy food, desserts, sparkling drinks, clothing and Korean horror movies.

This year I get to celebrate again with the girls, and do much of the same things, but this time we'll do it maybe dressed like this:

And perhaps there will also be some of this:


Either way I'm happy to have a ladies night with yummy cupcakes and other goodies, because it means taking a break from deathly studying.

Have I made you all jealous?

skeleton obsession

Throw in some cupcakes and my day is perfect:

skeleton tea spoons

I want them:

Sure they may not work so well for sugar purposes...but aren't they pretty?

Guido & Guidettes

I just learned what the term referred to after having seen clips from an appalling mtv series "Jersey Shore". Guido's are typically referred to as:
An Italian American man usually residing in New York or New Jersey. He wears shirts that are too tight and unbuttoned 5 buttons too low to show off the chest that he spent hours and hours at the gym obtaining, he spends more time on his hair than his girlfriend, and continues to “hit the clubs” long into his mid to late 30’s. Often attracted to the female version of himself, the guidette.
while guidette's are the
Female counterpart to the Guido, meaning vapid, vain, and shortsighted. Located largely in the tri-state area or wherever there is a high density of Italian families. Can be spotted generally according to lack of clothing, and lack of breathability in said clothing. Often speaks in a high, shrill voice---almost like a mating call to attract guidos. Daily life consists of clubbing, tanning, shopping, perhaps exercise or work, and not a whole lot else.

Basically I was shocked by the amazing shades of orange that both sexes seem to achieve, and the overall impression that these people must have some sort of venereal disease. Or are at least going to die of cancer...or plain stupidity. Sometimes people make stereotyping really easy.

I can hardly believe that I even took the time to post this...but with the amount of filth on TV these days it's hard not to want to critique it all.

Why is this shit popular?
