Lusting after..

As a happily coupled gal it's been a while since I've done a lusting after. Mainly because there was no space for other wants besides matters of the heart. Now, as things are slowly setting into place and a hopefully calm and happy era shall commence, I take this time to bring you another fashion filled lusting session. Wedges and hoods. OTT-ness to the extreme. Hot. Over-sized furry coats. This is what I'm saying. Definitely on my wish list. Among other things. On a shopping update, bought a lovely bright red winter coat, lush. And is exact same shade of red as new ADIDAS hold-all, so am now Miss Matchy Matchy and loving it loads. Stopped by H&M and bought two dresses, both in a rather holiday spirit. Shiny! Plus one over-sized black cardi. You can never have too many.. Also fed the literary beast and bought some books have been l.a. for ages (the first of Kathy Reichs' - Deja Dead, a collection of Yeats poetry - containing my favorite "Had I the heavens embroidered cloths.." - thou planning of giving this to my sis for X-mas, a book of spooky tales for my hunny and one I think my bro will enjoy). So have a few x-mas gifts checked off the list with still a few to go. What are you getting your loved ones?

Bright and bouncy

Reasons to be thankful for:

1) leaving uni a couple hours early,
2) perfect pizza lunch and then ice cream (the rich delish kind too),
3) taking the dy off work,
4) dress shopping (bought the most OTT dress possible, imagine short, sparkly and multi-colored - which I shall wear to Saturday's party),
5) talking with my best friend on the phone - s'been too long,
6) spending all day with my sweetie (obviously the most important point but this is in chronological order right, so there.)

7) being on the net during boring bus ride to HK, nothing against watching back-to-back episodes of Friends but srsly, if you take this root frequently then it's rather annoying. (I think I've seen this episode before, the one where Rachel makes the meat puddling cake thing).

Photos are from the weekend photoshoot. These are by Saneesh Sukumaran. For those of you who have me on facebook, I know, I know, you've seen these before. Apologies.
Text written yesterday during bus ride to Hradec Kralove. Was an amazing trip, really, just a shame I had to leave back to Prague the same day.. *On the bus ride back saw exactly the same episodes. Srsly, Student Agency, you should work this out better.. :P

Pure EVIL..

The culprit was found lying on his victim, the poor mattress.
Afterwards, he yawned in a most malignant way.

I know, I know, I know. I've been neglecting you recently. And I'm very truely sorry, really, I am. If it was New Year's I'd make a resolution to be better to you, to give you more of my undivided attention, but then again, I hate resolutions. They never work do they? Or do they? Two years ago I made several NY's resolutions and now they've actually been resolved. I've given up smoking for good (thanks to my bf, he's a non-smoker - that always helps), am now a serious uni student (not just slacking off in the back of the lecture room), am totally in love and oh shit! The gym! There's still that I have to work on, that and the blog now, obviously. Well bare with me because I'll be back.. ;)

Up on that swing

You know when you were a little kid and you'd go on that old swing down by the end of the road and your only thoughts were "up, up and away!" and it would be just short of bliss because no matter how hard you'd try, there'd always be that moment when the swing would have to go down.. And your insides would be in a twirl and the shwu shwu of the air made your skin tinkle..

Well I'm up on that swing again but this time around it's even more fun, which is rather hard to believe. Sadly thou, it's now time to wake up a bit and get back to responsibilities because uni exams are right by the corner (e.g. chemistry test today:/) so needa study and concentrate. Huh. No fun.. :P

A brand new toy..

Acer. Ferrari. 12-inches. That's all I'm saying :))... (That plus the fact that I didn't have to pay for it - e.g. my new work computer - makes for perfection. Who's a happy little girl? :))

* I'll post up a photo (yes, as proof :P) but later, I'm in the library now and should actually attempt to get some work done...

The mysterious white line..

My computer has a virus and I'm naming it Spencer (why? The name's just annoying enough to match). So what exactly is Spencer? Spencer is a white line that sometimes appears when I'm on the net and with each click gets bigger and bigger until he takes over the whole site. Now this doesn't happen ALL the time (or on all sites either, his favorite is Google maps) and sometimes the line grows quicklier than other times. It's a real puzzle, I've been told this has to do with lack of memory but the memory isn't full and plus, wouldn't that then happen on all sites and all the time. So, I'm thinking no, it's not memory, it's Spencer, the moody virus.

On a happier note it's Friday! Yeay! And I'm wearing my new lucky boots so everything is lalalala. I'll be posting outfit posts soon.. Hope you're all surviving.. oh and I'd like to give a shout out to Amber, hope things are getting better:) You should really check out her site The Fashion Police, she is HILARIOUS.

A head full of thoughts.

An interesting thing happened to me today (btw, such a straaange day), met up with my bestfriend and we went to her casting and just for fun I asked if I could join, it wouldn't have been a problem BUT no tattooes. Like srsly? I mean why no let me try out at least? I get it thou, they're looking for a specific look and tatts aren't a part of it, but it was a bit ridiculous if you ask me. I mean, make-up, hello! Photoshop, whatever, and there's ways to cover it up (well, yeah, I knooooow but still I'm having a ramble here so deal with it:P).

On a brighter note, dinner with Aja Jaj was bloody fantastic (missed you sweetie so much!) and then the rest of my evening was.. well, surprising and good, but don't want to get into that just yet. But I'm definitely happy and totally cannot wait for next weekend. And to conclude today's broadcast: new boots! New boots! New boots! They are fierce and heeled and badass and if I hadn't spent all day in them outside I'd sleep in them (*thou of course not, I'm a hygiene freak but anyways you know what I mean). They're from Vagabond, cost a small fortune and are fabulous. They're also bringing me some good luck... Apologies for the crap photo but it's the only one I have so far (was me deciding whether to buy them or not).

One of those days

It started out bad and by the looks of it, things aren't gonna get any better just yet. Today just wasn't meant to happen, at all. Should have just stayed in bed (or actually, just gone to bed at night, that might have helped things a bit) and screwed everything because today, everything I touch goes to pieces. I feel like I'm in that little boat in the photo, except without the adrenalin rush of the storm and all. I'm all shipwrecked and without a paddle etc. etc. And I don't have a life jacket either, nope. So, anyways, I'm heading home in a bit. Gonna attempt to sleep it off...

Choose your poison.

Passion. It lies in all of us. Sleeping... Waiting...
And thou unwanted... unbidden... it will stir...
Open its jaws, and howl.
It speaks to us... guides us... Passion rules us all.
And we obey.. what other choice do we have?

It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion, maybe we'd know some kind of peace. But we would be hollow. Emtpy rooms, shuttered and dank... Without passion, we'd be truly dead...

Text from a favorite episode of mine (Buffy, season 2, Passion). I have so much passion I could hand it out, thou perhaps not for the right things.. Now should get back to my studies:/ Wish me luck tomorrow!
