Nothing can mend my teenage heart again

Hello Hello Hello! Wow. Sorry I have abandoned my blog. I have an excuse though! I finished exams on Thursday and then from Friday to Sunday we were visiting my Grandma. So I wasn't just ignoring my blog! I was busy. I really have missed blogging though! This afternoon I'm going to a tea party for a teacher who is leaving this year! The rule was to wear pearls and a fascinator. I have a facinator, except I lost it and now I can't find it. I have lots of pearls, though! Anyways, this is what I'm wearing to it:
Top- Parisian  Skirt- Dressup box downstairs  Shoes- Street Society

I love these new shoes! They are SO comfy, even though they're heels. I rarely wear heels, but these were too cute and I just HAD to get them.





And I'll leave you with my newest obsession, HUNX AND HIS PUNX! They are SO good!

Grab your Mother's keys, we're leaving

Hi all! This is what I wore today:


Top-thrifted  Jeans- Forever 21  Shoes-???


Pretty ruffles on the shirt
A few days ago someone asked me if I was trying to be "hipster". NO! I am not "trying" to be anything. My style is unique, it's not "hipster" or anything like that. Sure, it may have components, like 60's or 70's or a certain vibe, but I am not TRYING to look anything. I just wear what I like. What I like is what I wear.
So this will probably be my last post until next weekish because exams are next week and I'll be studying this week and stuff. . Here is some tres tres interessant musique (hee hee. practicing for the french exam) I want to show you! Bye for a while!
Arcade Fire-Rebellion (Lies)

David Bowie-Queen Bitch

Neutral Milk Hotel- Holland, 1945

The Beatles-Let it Be

Simon & Garfunkel- Sounds of Silence

Flowers, Flowers Everywhere

Today after school I made some crowns with flowers on them. Yay. I feel creative and happy and rather summer-y.

yay awkward forehead
 The last one is my favourite. Oh ya, this is what I wore today: (I got a new skirt! I thrifted it!)


Sometimes I just don't get people. A few months ago I started dressing "differently" and listening to "different" music. People started to act weird around me. They wouldn't talk to me as much, and some people even don't talk to me at all now. It's really the same Maren. Same personality (crazy!), same ideas, same opinions. Just different clothes and thicker eyeliner. People think that my skirts are suit to be curtains, and that I look "fancy". "Why are you wearing a skirt?" "What's up with the bell-bottoms?" I DRESS THIS WAY BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE IT. Honestly. I think it's also because I go to a very small school and people don't like change. If I went to a school with 500 kids, it would probably go unnoticed. Not that I even want to be noticed. I DON'T! I dress for myself, I wear makeup for myself, and I'm not trying to get attention by wearing flowers atop my head. OPINION. I guess some people think that I want attention, and I want people to look at me. They are completely wrong! A few months ago, I blended in and felt kind of off balanced. Now, I feel right, and I don't really care if you think what I'm wearing is stupid or for attention. I just like it.

Sweet Dreams







The state of my room for the past few days
Hi. I am just really bored and don't want to go to school tomorrow so I'm gonna blog. I have been feeling rather crafty so I made things. I was really mad cuz when I went to the closest dollar store to me it was CLOSED FOREVER. I NEEDED GLITTER. Ergy erg. Anyways I watched 500 Days of Summer an hour ago. It was good. Summer made me angry because she totally drove him into misery and stuff.

Sorry bout my last post. I accidentally re-blogged it somehow and it was from like a month ago. GAH.  Totally off topic, but I bought a Bob Marley shirt: (This post is really all over the place)


Yay.

A Walk in the Woods

My friend and I went on a walk to a swingy bridge and she was a model. And we ate cupcakes and strawberries. No, we really did! Yay here are the pictures.

I am infatuated with this shirt.


Mixed docs! I love this one.


My exploration backpack. I want to decorate it with brownie badges. It was my Mom's when she worked at an outdoors store in University!



Sooooo! Yes. You may see more adventure photos coming soon! It's warmer, so we can explore a little bit and go to cool places on our bikes. I like doing that. It makes me feel kind of free and I like to go places with my pallies! Goodbye for now!!


MAREN

Happy friday


Accidental hair show-off :)
                                    
So I sewed some little flowers on one of my favourite shirts. I've had this shirt since march, I got it when I went to Fargo. I sewed the flowers on last month. I am really lazy and I am comfy in my chair and I didn't want to get up and upload pictures so I used my web cam instead.

DID YOU HEAR??? ROOKIE IS DOING A TOUR THIS SUMMER IN THE STATES! I WANT TO GOOOOOO!!!! The closest place is Chicago, and I think I have exams when they go. :'( Boo hoo. I am crushed. I WANT TO EAT ICE CREAM WITH TAVI AND PETRA AND ANAHEED AND PETRA'S SISTER AND BOYFRIEND. You have to read the article to get that.
BLEEEEEEEEEEEH. I'm going to go and make things and put them on a string to hang on my ceiling and listen to David Bowie to drown my sorrows.


p.s what could I do to make my blog look less boring? thoughts and suggestions would be rather helpful.
