I'm kind of in love with this. I want to look like her and wear her clothes and be at that party with those people. I am the most impressionable person ever. Not so random fact: I remember when I was 12 or something and me and my friend would watch Sister Act 2 all the time and Lauryn Hill and the rest of the kids were so damn cool and I thought "Aww I'll never be cool because I'm not black" Yeah. Kid me was weird. er.
By the way, I am never posting a youtube video again on my blog.
I was at my grandmother's house over the weekend. She lives in the nicest town in Iceland and my (big) family built her a new house recently that fits a lot of people and is very comfy but it has no internet so we went for a drive in the BEAUTIFUL weather and I took these pictures of some mountains and some birds and the mysterious dead herring (local stuff. mysterious stuff.) In other news, I have a septum piercing now because I'm cool now and I've had it for over a month now so the other day I could finally put a new ring in my nose woohoo. And then I lost myself looking at fancier ones online... look at this! And this and this and this. Mmm. I wish I had a bunch of money and could wear gold without feeling like a pimp.
In conclusion, since I'm in the process of decluttering my brain, I've finally accepted that I won't be posting that much on here instead of bumming myself out because of it. When I have something I want to share I'll share it and in between I'll continue creating my virtual collage on my very much alive tumblrpage which I invite you all to look at. A lot. Because it's very good.
...or just listen to these. BUT NOT AT THE SAME TIME!:
I've already listened to the Fatboy Slim song at least 9 times tonight. The man is a genius.
Happy 2013 everybody! I hope you all had a new years eve filled with fireworks, music, bubbly wine and good company. Or whatever else makes you happy. Just wanted to start the year with a few carefully chosen photos that, to me, are perfect.I started out with a whole bunchof crazy groovy madness and edited and edited until only 4 were left in all their untainted simplicity. Some Marques Almeida shoes, a flower that looks like a vagina and the top picture. I don't know what it's from but it's lovely. I just noticed that I've been posting some delusionally summery pictures lately, I think it's because I'm so tired of this endless dark winter. But on the bright side, winter means coats! Lots and lots of coats. I'm obsessed with them. I look out for cheap coats every time Igo to the fleamarket, so I have to get going if I want to make it there in time. Later!
Just wanted to share these beautiful, peaceful, spiritual and soulful images by Japanese photographer and traveler Ariko Inaoka. The top 4 are taken in my dear Iceland, the bottom 4 in India. They make me want to go places. All pictures are from Ariko's website. I recommend reading the little text that comes with each photo album.
AND I had to sneak this one in, a single picture from photographer Brigette Bloom to finish the post. And the year. See you in 2013:
Some colour and cuteness inspiration for ya. You're welcome.
I've been watching a lot of girly shows lately, I'm obsessed and I can't get enough. The most recent one is Zooey Deschanel's New Girl. I had no idea until recently how good it is and I can honestly say that that show has made me laugh out loud more than any other. It's genius. Others I've given a try: 2 Broke Girls, the cheap looking and very unlolworthy sitcom that's somehow charming anyway, and the horribly titled Don't trust the B in apartment 23 which is adorable and The Bitch is cute and wears awesome stuff. Then there were those that died too young and only lasted 1 season (although they do not fit into the weird and awkward theme): There was The Ex-List, which was entirely mediocre but somehow addictive and everyone was so fit and healthy and surfing and throwing frisbees on the beach and whatnot. That was my workout show for obvious reasons. And my first ever favourite feelgood girly show, Miss Match from 2003. Alicia Silverstone was in it. I don't need to explain myself. So yeah my point being, I need more. Any suggestions? All comments telling me to get off my ass and do something worthwhile will be reluctantly deleted because I like comments... Oh and I can't wait for the next season of Girls. Yay for weird girls on tv.
By the way, have any of you tried bidding on stuff on ebay? That is the most frustrating thing ever. I found this lovely little 60s short sleeve dress and put it on my ebay watch list. I had never done the auction thing, but the dress was so beautiful and green and the starting price was very low so I had to. Even though I had to wait until 5am for the madness to begin.
Anyway, there was a lot of panicky bidding in the last seconds and some "shit shit shit what's going on?!??!??" And I guess I was quarter of a second too late with my last bid and the word SOLD in red pierced right through my brain and into my soul (yes it did) and I was all confused thinking "What happened?!?! Wait, did I win... no... I LOST!?" and yes, my beautiful dress had been sold to someone else for a measly 22 dollars and yes, I'm still bummed about it. I guess this is for pros only or people who have some automatic bidding robot, not us mere humans. Sadface.
