Collages

So I FINALLY scanned in some of my collages, after a few days of procrastination. One was too big to scan in, and unfortunately it was my best one. boo-hoo.


Yes, she is saying her bowtie is a camera.



How was your weekend? It's almost over. MEH. I've biked, sat in my room, watched CSI:NY and failed at doing Tavi's beehive. My hair is wayyy to thick and curly, and I can't have bangs or else they'll split in the center. Fortunately, my mother was a child of the 60's and she tried to do a french roll type thing on the back of my head. It kind of reminds me of the women in The Help. Anyways, I shall keep you informed of my hair escapade and show you when I succeed. I got really cute earrings yesterday! They are silver bows with yellow gems in them with a tiny yellow heart hanging off the center! They are very spring like. I have also been making things. I made a pair of in an aeroplane over the sea earrings (header pic) and a cool vintage-y black necklace. I'll show you later. Next time. I promise, children. (ya I know I'm weeiiird.)

BONJOUR

It's very cold out. Too cold. My fingers are numb from taking pictures and spending a while outdoors with a flimsy cardigan and no gloves. You: WOW MAREN YOU COMPLAIN A LOT! Me: YES I KNOW! AHH well. I am ok now. Anyways, I (obviously ) went outside and took some photos in my backyard. I think they turned out quite well. Here they are!
Cardigan-Mom  Shirt-hand me down  Dress (worn as skirt)- Topshop  Shoes-Brash 





I know it looks like I'm not wearing a skirt or pants in this one, but TRUST me, I am !



I am planning a post soon about my collages! I just have to get around to scanning them in. I don't have any homework. Maybe I'll go do that after dinner. I will. I probably won't. I am a HUGE procrastinator.

Much LOOOVE,

Said the Optimistic Feminist

Hello there! I haven't really had time to post this week, in between french tests, piano and NCIS. (love that show....) Today I went to the library with my friend. There was this awesome stereotypical old man working there who really needed a hearing aid and took like 5 minutes to type my name into the computer! It was kind of cute though. In an old man sort of way. After that I walked home whilst listening to the Juno soundtrack. I like the music because it is kind of airy sounding and sweet. It was perfect, because in the background I could hear some birds singing above me! It was really pretty and just added to the whole soundtrack.  Anyways, I got home and took some pictures of what I wore today! Ta-da!

Cardigan- Dynamite  Top- hand-me-down  Skirt-American Apparel  Tights-Target  Shoes-Converse 


Polka dot tights!!! Yes I know I have an ugly carpet...
I love this outfit, it's so comfy. My jacket I call my Lindsay Weir jacket because it's kind of like her army jacket, except mine's thinner and beige. It's really nice and soft, and I like how it's kind of baggy. I got those Converse when I was down in the States, and they were on sale for 20 bucks! They're a size too big, but whatever. I just lace them up really tight. Ya. Um. Sooo. Bye!

I want blue hair

HI happy Easter! I really want blue hair. My hairdresser says it'll ruin my hair and turn it an ugly copper colour. :( Fortunately, she can get extensions :) that are blue! YAY! I'm happy now. I still wish I could have done my WHOLE head, but I'm still happy about the extensions! I'm getting them later this month! Anyways, this is what I wore yesterday. Right now I'm in yoga pants and a sweater. I also am really hyper from eating chocolate ducks and eggs and bunnies! YAAAAAAAAAAAA! Sorry. It's the candy speaking. ON with the outfits.

Top-Thrifted  Romper-Forever 21 Tights- NO IDEA Booties-  Aldo
 I edited this photo on pic monkey. It's exactly like picnik! I love this picture. It makes me feel happy, even though it's pooky and windy and gray outside. It shows a little more of my room in this one.

Da booties

I love the pattern on this Romper!

I was going to do a room tour today, but all my sheets are in the wash and my bed is rather boring and white looking now. Sometime this week, I promise. Have a good rest of  Easter holidays!!!!

Excuse my messy room.......

Happy Easter!

Gumdrops in Paradise

Urgh. Hi. This is going to be a very short post because I am feeling lazy. Also, I am sad. Last day of spring break before school starts again. Oh well. I'll make the most of it. I'll EMBRACE it. Maybe not. OK, probably not. Anyways, I have to show you my FAVOURITE lipstick in the WHOLE wide world. (besides the lilac lime crime, but I can't find it anywhere but the Internet and I really don't want to order it.) This is the closest I could find. It's by Revlon, and it's a lip butter. The name is Gumdrop. I am almost out of it, though. :(
It's lighter, but the picture makes it look dark


And it comes in the cutest little tube!
That is all for now. Goody-bye!

OH OH GUESS WHO SAW THE HUNGER GAMES YESTERDAY????? ME! I painted my nails red and orange for the fire look. And I wore mocking jay earrings.
