the time has come

the time has come to make a change with my hair. it was cut to just above chest level this August and could use a trim, or maybe a whole new style. every october/november i need to make some kind of alteration to my appearance, last year i pierced my nose, this year perhaps i dye my hair?

love is a tired symphony you hum when you're awake.

for people who know me well, there are two ways to tell what kind of day im having and what type of mood im in.
Firstly by what i wear and then by the state of my room. the cuteness of my outfit is directly proportional to my happiness. and the cleaner my room the better i feel in general. well today im wearing an oversized hoodie and gym pants. and my room is a disaster area. ): waiting on a twist of fate...

Lyyf3 jU$t b3$ LiiKe d@T.

for a month or two last year i would get a full set of french tips. i go back and forth between believing it was a waist of time and money, and wishing for those clean 'classy' nails.
this picture reminds me i need to get my brows done. hmmmm. i can be so lazy! i have essays due tomorrow, tests to study for and projects to complete. its like quarter to 10 and im on my 2nd cup of coffee but all i can do rock out to depressing music and be thoroughly unproductive.

lookinnnn' cutee.

this is me and my best friend vika ( http://pearlsformylove.blogspot.com/ ) curling our hair. we learned this technique from a michelle phan video. thats how we spend many a study session; watching beauty guru videos on youtube and looking a bit homeless. can you say IVY LEAUGE!?!

its amazing how well it works! however, i suggest using old grocery bags, they're sturdier and more eco friendly than using new lunch bags.

just a review...

OF THE BEST PRODUCT OF ALL TIME!! ...no haha not really, juss joshing, but i have been quite smitten with this Aveeno exfoliator called the skin brightening daily scrub.

and heres why:
scent:
lovely, delicious, fresh 'n clean
texture:
super effective mini beads
price:
9$- not exactly a bargain but decent
the company:
makes high quality, less chemically harmful products
suggested by:
a highly intelligent Esthetician who seemed to really understand my skin and its many woes. she gave a a hell of a facial
my skin then:
bumpy, rough, HUGEEEEE PAINFUL black heads, breakout.
my skin now:
soft to the touch, smaller black heads, brighter more even tone, fewer breakouts.
size:
5oz. or 140g either way it aint bad.

crunchy leaves

to me, november is all about comfort and never ending effort to be as cozy as possible.

this past week, i enjoyed:

celestial seasons green tea with honey, lemon and ginseng. a great dairy free option for when im on earl grey overload. green tea has skin and health benefits as well.

slftlips- vanilla. even better than my nevia kiss of moisture

my hot water bottle- i got this at whole foods last feb. i've been sleeping with this on my toes every night for 2 weeks (:

naked by david sedaris, this book is so clever and hilarious. i honestly didn't complete a single chapter without an outburst of giggles.

90's floppy stoner/smurf hat- this is from my F21 order and i could not be more pleased. its so hipster chic.

a mission accomplished

I've found a scent that i really like!
i wouldn't go so far as to call is my signature scent but i rather fond of my ralph by ralph lauren hot, and when i wear it i feel like a bitch, but in that good way. (:

failing to prepare, is preparing for failure.

simple and useful. (: the things i love must have more than one purpose to be truly fantastic.

p.s. my comb is missing a few teeth and i bought it for 99 cents this summer at wal-mart. thus it earned the name "hillbilly comb" (:
