Christmas in November

The last hurrah in my home away from home and before we know it it will be twenty-fifteen

As per university traditions go, celebrating every single excuse of a holiday for at least a week, at least a week in advance (in this case a month) is something that will hit me faster than I will realize once "real life" begins.

This time, the start of finals also means the end of November- one step closer to Santa & his elves; just take a look at her expression of sheer excitement:

Happy Finals !!!!!


How I'm Dressed

My no-pants rule means one thing for winter: tights!

I could probably wear tights for the rest of my life. So many variations & colours & patterns! They just make an outfit look cuter than normal!

How We're Dressed

…for Fall
[October 24, 2013]

These photos are about a month and a half old, but it really feels like there shouldn't be snow on the ground yet, so I think these photos are a good representation of how the weather should be right now.

But actually, I love snow!!! sans ice. and I cannot wait till winter and christmas and having two months off before I move to another continent for four months!

For some reason I cannot stop raving over this photo...

Craziness. Pretty much feel like I'll be starting a brand new life.

I am also the dark-hued vampire beside my always cheerful housemate:

buuuuuuuttttt, that's why we're housemates

One month ago:
I could still use teenager as a valid excuse
and the concept of real life was foreign to me (but it still is)

I don't look, act, or feel twenty (in my opinion) but I expect my 20s to be the best and worst times of my life, kind of how being 19 was, except amplified

...I realize this blog is becoming more like a personal blog as opposed to a style blog... I need less quarter life revelations and more inspiration

This adorable girl walked around campus on homecoming day selling these bows she made with her mom from a shoebox. The sheer effort of her cute (and entrepreneurial) diy was enough to make me want one!

...also celebrating homecoming makes me so excited to call myself alumni in just one and a half years!

Life on an island

I feel like I've been around a lot of water and trees this summer...

Also funny how I managed to not include any photos of food considering that's all I did on this trip!

You know when you see other people and you think "I'd never do that" "That would never happen to me" "Why would someone ever do that" and then it happens to you, and you're kicking yourself for being so stupid & naive?

That's me



I love my second home/ family

I didn't think it sounded that funny but Kingston really is like my nature home- whenever I'm there, it's like everything I do is outdoors and I actually enjoy it.
