"I used to sleep at night before the flashing lights settled deep in my brain"

Wine Soaked
Sugar, when combined with food coloring and a delicious looking exterior, is my Heaven.


1. TV & Movie recap of my week: How to Train Your Dragon is the cutest thing I've seen in a long time. I now really want a dragon of my own who I'd name BooBoo. The Last Airbender is a movie with really awesome visuals and one extraordinary bad script. I have become addicted to Vampire Diaries. Okay, truthfully, I have become addicted to staring at Ian Somerhalder because I sometimes want to bitch-slap everyone in that show but Damon is so worth wasting an hour for.

(Superficial Anna is superficial.)

2. I should not drink wine. It makes me change accents and I end up a walking, talking trivia machine that has the play button stuck and is set on shuffle. Not cool.

3. Confession: I enjoy bad movies. There, I said it. I like to consider my tastes in movies to be above average and close to Annoying Hipster levels but I can go from watching The Shawshank Redemption to You Don't Mess with the Zohan in a blink of an eye and love both of them. The sound you hear is my credibility going down the drain.

(This might even end up as a future blog post: Anna's Questionable Taste in Movies or Movie Snobs R Not Us.)

4. It only took one summer to turn me from an abnormally cheerful early bird into the kind of girl who screams "I will disembowel you with a toothpick and gauge your eyes out with a RUSTY SPOON if you wake me!" if poked before 11am. Thank god The Boy doesn't take me too seriously before my first cup of coffee.

5. I have come to the conclusion that I need more sparkly and glittery clothes in my life. Like Lady Gaga meets Johnny Weir meets Ziggy Stardust except with more scrubs and less insanity. Only then will I be happier.


And now onto life as I know it.

Saturday was a brisk walk to the Wonderland Fair where I got to drink some great passion fruit smoothies and enjoy all the beautiful eye-candy. And even though my wallet has been on the Great Depression Era side of the tracks and it was more of a Veni Vidi and less Vici experience, I still enjoyed this little fashion break.

Fabulous dresses by the lovely Alina Ene.

Yes, yes, I know, I wanted to run off with everything as well.

The day turned to night and the night ended up being spent in front of wine glasses. Not before one last walk around the city.

I look drunk but I promise I wasn't. Or I don't think I was. Anyway. 75% not drunk!

Second time I spent a Sunday in the park. Look mom, I'm learning how to be an outdoorsy person. Feel proud.


Now, if I can also get the act-my-age thing down, I'll be ready for the real world.

I liked this balloon but it did not like me and kept hitting me in the head. Our relationship was short-lived and tempestuous, sigh.

Wearing: Zara dress & blazer, Nine West boots, Musette bag.

Sunday night was lazy. Just like I like it.

It’s like you’re in my mind cause 1,2, 4, 5 CHECKED. I guess I’m also struggling a little bit with acting my age, but what the hell, I still want to think I can pass as a 17 years old:)))))

Lovely post as usual, I adore your blog! And nice boots, too =)

Do get those Lady Gaga style glittery clothes - apparently, that's what we should all wear for the New Year parties to make the next year a lucky one.

Have a lovely weekend!
