Sliding Stars

It was a really great time out yesterday; we went down to LA for the first time in months and swung by Buffalo Exchange on the way over. We went to Downtown Disney as well (it's kind of obligatory) where we nommed on beignets and fought through crowds of high school kids on group trips. Nothing against it, it looks like a cool trip, but I can't help but feel frustrated getting through a flock of kids in matching shirts standing near the restrooms.
Day three of the song challenge: a song that makes you happy! 

Lovelovelove Marina and the Diamonds! My room mate introduced her to me, and I've been hooked ever since. The song's great, but I honestly think my favorite part is the music video. :3

Word for Word

Dress: Kimchi (Buffalo Exchange)
Belt: F21

Dress+belt...that's pretty much my summer uniform. Trying to get around to wearing shorts and tees more often, but I've gotten used to being kinda fancy all the time. Nothing wrong with either, of course. XD

So, day two of the music challenge is "your least favorite song". It took a while (because there are few songs I really dislike), but I finally found the one:

For some reason, this song ALWAYS turn up on my professor's Pandora playlists, and it drives me nuts. I must have heard this song 6 times in Graphic Design class alone. :|

Cruel Summer

Dress: Modcloth
Cardigan: Target
Belt: F21

It's sooooo much colder here than in Florida! The days are overcast, there's mist and rain and's kind of a bummer. In any case, at least I get to break out my sweaters and tights again.

In any case, I'm really happy to have more time to work on personal art and that kind of thing...even though, ironically, all I feel like doing is watching cable. I'm getting things done, but a lot slower than I thought I would.

Anyway I saw this challenge posted on Kelinda's blog (from Mind Sticker), and it sounded like loads of fun! It's a 30 Day Music Challenge, starting with your favorite song:

When I was a kid, ALL I listened to was KISS. They're still my favorite band, and they were my first concert as well! I used to really like the intro to this song in particular (it's kind of rare to hear it; usually they use it as an intro to "She"). :D

Slacker!'s been a month since my last post. o.o
Things were just as busy as I thought they'd be wrapping up the end of the year, and even though I've been home for about two weeks I just haven't gotten around to posting. Ah, well, I'm posting now (finally).

We went out to Solvang a few days ago and had a great time out; Solvang's this little town with a heavy Dutch/German feel. Lots of cute houses, German-style bakeries and great boutiques. We had ebelskivers (tiny German doughnuts covered in jam and powdered sugar) and coffee and had a look around, so it was a great afternoon. :D

I also started up a seperate blog for art!
