on the hunt

Nina and I went on the hunt for the elusive koala yummy/koala march/"berry bear" after trying two different grocery stores we gave up, spent too much money at Target (I got a Shaun White 4 Target shirt, yay little boys section! and CK one perfume that was on sale) and took some pictures.
I'm wearing H&M skirt, belt from the gap and F21 shoes.


Camden Market

England was, as always, amazing. I was so glad that I managed to fit in a bunch of things I didn't get a chance to do during my prior trips including spending some time at Camden Market. Camden Market is an absolutely huge outdoor shopping market with endless numbers of adjoining stalls that have everything from music to jewelry to shoes to clothes and tons of amazing food. Their vintage selection is amazing, I got the most incredible lace dress.

I completely regret not getting a gold pocket watch

I was really close to getting one of these wine-bottle-candles. The look awesome when they're almost half-way melted.

If I could I would have bought everything in this story. I wish my closet looked like this. Everything was so beautiful. All dresses and tons of lace AKA my dream come true.

to describe the greatness that is Steven Meisel, Christy Turlington, Karen Elson, Natalia Vodianova, Karl Templer, and (of course) Marc Jacobs.
I blogged about this collection as soon as it came out and still cannot get over it!!!


May in review

Before I begin, excuse my lack of posting for the month of May. Due to an odd and unfortunate series of events that included finals, having as much fun as I could before starting work, actually starting work (goddamn my Monday-Friday, 9-5, stuck-in-an-office-job), getting sick, still being sick, and just being lazy/the procrastinator that I am, blogging just stayed in the back of my mind.

May in review:

I fell in love and developed an unhealthy obsession with dark chocolate covered goji berries. MMMMMMMMM! Other people actually have to stop me because I will consume a whole package in one sitting...

I tried friend green tomatoes (new favorite summer food) for the first time at a really awesome bar/restaurant in Bucktown called The Southern.

I also had some amazing crab cakes and my first Blonde Bombshell.

This bring my total number of beers I have tried to date to a whopping: 5.

I sported some new red in my hair. Thoughts? I am contemplating going back to my natural boring brown color...

Babes graduated 8th grade and, therefore, is going to be in high school next year. WEIRD!

Several of us contemplated the irony of life. (Hehehe)

And paid homage to LiLo.

Bacon maple, red velvet, black and white, and a white russian; all slightly smashed, but still yummy.
