Plans for the winter holiday:
♥ Sleep until I literally evolve into a very close relative of the jungle sloth.
♥ Watch all seasons of the following shows: Gilmore Girls, The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Misfits and Life on Mars.
♥ Watch the following Christmas movies: Elf, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Love Actually and Nightmare Before Christmas, all of which are holiday staples in this house.
♥ Bake reindeer shaped cookies and many, many muffins and gain at least a few pounds by the new year.
♥ Finally read Doctor Faustus, re-read Everything is Illuminated and get my hands on any books by Jonathan Franzen or Phillip Roth.
♥ Debate of the week: is wearing my lovely dresses worth freezing my tush off? My heart says yes, but my running nose and cold, clammy hands say no.
♥ Sing the Chipmunks Christmas song at least 6 times a day. Annoying high squealed voice not an option.
♥ Learn how to make Darth Vader paper snowflakes.
♥ Buy glittery things. Lots and lots of glittery things. An annoying, pathological amount of glittery things.
♥ Re- learn to brave the snowy streets in heels. Yell "This is Spartaaaaaa!" when successful.
Happy holidays everyone :-)
The Christmas lights in the city can only be described by the word kitsch. I personally love their craptastic qualities but others do not share my view. At least we can agree the park fairs are cute...ish, right?
Fun fact no. 237 about me: I have a slight obsession with sheep and plan on building the biggest collection of sheep toys this side of the Carpathian mountains.
Need to buy fluffy winter hat complete with fuzzy ears and dangling pom-poms. Preferably bright pink.
Outfit post! Can't remember where I wore it or why I wore it, just that I did and that the redheaded doll and I had a very important bonding moment. We are now bffs.
dress & sweater: Kotton, boots: Nine West, bracelet: Asos, watch: Tissot.
New month, new internship. A lot of new moments spent pretending to read books of importance when actually we just search Youtube for funny videos and sleep standing up. Can I get a woop-woop?
Trip to Ikea equals buying too many cheap pie trays and that equals learning how to make not-cheap pies.
Apple-peach-blueberry pie. Recipe adapted from here. Oh yum!
Song of the Day: Blue Foundation - End of the Day
