"People don't realize this, but loneliness is underrated"

Sometimes you just need good things:

+ The most adorable experiment ever. People aren't half bad it seems.
+ Gala Darling cheers us up.
+ Love My Life
+ This much I know: Deepak, Noel, Nick, Gok.
+ For any romanians out there: need to check these out.
+ pretty photos & Elle.
+ some love for the unloved.
+ Hehee.
+ Really freaking perfect, cute bags.
+ Summer. And 500 days of it.
+ Girl Crushes in beautiful editorials.

Wednesday:
My mom was out of town and you know what they say: when the cat is away the mice start to play. Or in this case, the mice drink too much diet coke and coffee and end up baking all night and then watching The Big Bang Theory and The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Fun times :)


"Cooking 101: Med Student Style"


Maria and Andy started off with a bang!


Muffins!!


Pancakes!


I took the muffin making quite seriously: notice the sweat and flour on my face!





These were special muffins: a Ferrero Rocher chocolaty center and a splash (...or more) of whiskey in the batter ;D


The kitchen suffered. Or as Andy said, looked like it went through WW2 and was never the same again.


But it was so worth it!

I spent Easter with my family at my grandparent's house. I didn't take too many photos because I was distracted by all the cakes and chocolate but I did manage to snap some of the house and of my gran.





My granmother painted the Easter eggs this year just how I like them: crazy and psychedelic.


They're house is a mixture of old and new, so crazy yet it works for them.


My mom and her brother, I think.


My gran let me photograph her even though she's a bit camera shy. She thinks that photos should only be taken when people are dressed up and posing in a studio because that's how she had her photo taken when she was young. It was a once a year experience and you had to be all dolled up.














My grandfather was asleep in front of the tv so I could sneak a few photos.

Loneliness is sooo underrated you're right! Hahaha..

The pictures of your grandparents are so beautiful! My grandmother doesnt like having her picture taken. She also thinks you have to look perfect before you take a picture!

Awww... =DD I really like these photos!! Especially the ones of your grandma and grandpa. Heh I like how your granny always thinks of photo taking as a once a year event in which you have to get all dolled up for. Something like how the older generation tends to see a visit to the doctor as something worth dressing up for to show respect to the doctor. Is that the same for you over where you live? Heh but now it's not the case with the younger generation!

Heyy thanks for your sweet comments too! XD Yeahhh am gonna keep my fingers crossed that we both end up getting our awesome black leather jackets eventually!! you have to tell me when that happens!

oh man you always seem to have so much fun with your gal pals! =) it's something i really admire of you... don't quite have the same close knit grp of gal friends like you do >< (quite a few of them are overseas) so enjoy yourself with them to the fullest!!

The Clothes Horse said...

The baking looks like fun. I adore your friend's polka dot skirt.
P.S. D.H. Lawrence is the same for me, I always end with a "never again" and then he sucks me back!

Cooking with friends is the most fun. Espcially when what you make goes right.

Cas Ruffin said...

That looks so fun, and I agree loneliness IS underrated.

Those muffins looked really good.

Wanderlusting said...

Wonderful photos of the grandrents :) And that muffin, holy moly, ferrero center???? SWEETNESS!

Twobreadsplease said...

Ferrero rocher muffins sound like the most amazing thing ever. I like the photos of your grandparents, they're very intriguing and peaceful.

Hannah is Narnia's Closet said...

i LOVE that robot experiment, and those muffins look good.

dapper kid said...

The photographs of your grandparents are so beautiful dear! I love the shot of your grandmother's hands and the first of your grandfather. My parents always refuse to have their photo taken unless they're dressed up too, but I always tell them that I want to capture the everyday memories...to no avail lol. And wow the painted Easter eggs are fantastic. Cooking with friends is always a messy, yet super fun time :)
