skipping puddles

So, Beverley and I had a photoshoot at my house a while ago.

We also had a discussion about love at her house a few days ago, and you must check out her blog ( and read about what she has to say.

Some of the pictures turned out pretty well. We were both in a creative mood.

They were shrunken down when I uploaded them onto blogger, but at least you get a glimpse of what we were up to.

That's me wearing a dress that I got at VV a while ago. It was so darling and made me feel like a princess, so I bought it. I really hope that there is an occasion coming up that I could wear it to. Theme party, anyone?

I don't normally post photos of my meals, but this one was very tasty. I am a big believer in eating cake whenever I can!
Thanks to everyone for commenting and telling me their responses to my question. I love hearing from all of you!

Nicola( tagged me with a tag that I've been wanting to do for a while.
The rules are:
1. Respond and rework. Answer the questions on your blog, replace one question you dislike with a question of your own invention; add a question of your own.
2. Tag eight other un-tagged people.

What is your current obsession?
I am currently spending a lot of time decorating my bedroom. I love decorating it.
What are you wearing right now?
Right now I am wearing a pink cardigan and a green tank top from Old Navy and a floral skirt that I bought from VV, but it was originally American Eagle.
Who was the last person you hugged?
The last person I hugged would have to be my friend, Mistu when she came over and visited me the other day.
How many facebook friends do you have at the moment(or any social networking site)?
I'll have to go check. *one minute later* I have seven hundred and seventy eight friends. Does that even make sense? Oh my!
What’s for dinner?
I am hoping for pizza, but with my luck, we are probably not having it.
What was the last thing you bought?
The last thing that I bought was cupcakes.
What are you listening to right now?
Right now, I am listening to the We Just Touched Awkwardly song.
Listen to it here:
What is your favourite weather?
I quite enjoy springtime and autumn.
What’s on your beside table?
Currently I have a few CDs, mostly mixes, my alarm clock, a green picture frame, and fancy cards with envelopes.
Say something to the person/s who tagged you.
Your blog was one of the first I read, and it is such a pleasure to know that you read mine now too!

New York.

My basement!

I am currently re-reading Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
What would you like to have in your hands right now?
Anything Spring Awakening related. I love that musical.

Belgium Chocolate.
What film means so much to you?
This is a really hard question to answer. Rent, Odd Girl Out, or the Parent Trap(Lohan version).
If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
I would go to an intense dance workshop, or a cozy secondhand book store.
What did you want to become as a child?
A teacher.
Who was the last person you sang with?
My brother.

I'm going to tag anyone who wants to do this, because I really can't pick only eight people, as all of you are just so full of awesome!

Like I said in the first question, I have been working on changing my bedroom..gradually. The walls of my bedroom are the same as this next picture. I've posted a few pictures, all from ourbedrooms on livejournal. Inspiration. (Sorry if they are cut off or huge)

This Spring break, I hope to do something fun everyday. Of course, today was surfing the internet. I found this crazy site, check it out!

it's our love

I have to sign up for courses for my next year in high school, and I am precarious about what I should sign up for, since I still do not know what I want to do out of high school. Of course, I am also going to be taking Drama, Choir, English, Pre Calculus, Vocal Jazz, Chamber Choir and History. I'm most likely taking Biology, but do I need Physics or Chemistry? I would also like to take a computer course, like multimedia, application or science. Oh, but which one to choose is a very difficult decision.

One of my best friends had a birthday bash a while ago, and I took a picture of the meal that I had in the morning, doesn't it look just delicious?
My past few weeks have been filled with performing, birthdays, movies, flirting, veggie samosas, Annie, chemistry, catching up in dance class, stefanie, improv, tests, and preparing.
This dress from American Apparel is simply darling! One of my dance classes was considering having this for our costume, and we ended up deciding against it. I probably would have gotten the serpent colour-the first one. It looks like such a sweet dress, I may have to get it once I get a job.

I wrote a poem at the end of February, and I'd love it if you'd give me some feedback. Well, here it is. It isn't titled yet, and I haven't really given it a working title.

i'd set the scene, but i don't recall
everything around us was noticed, but set aside.
like seashells, we lined the way to a magical depth
we didn't divulge
either of us
our shells beautiful, a work of art.
a cluster of jewels adorned my chest
and your hair was mussed from the faded wind

the sand under the bare skin of our feet was the foundation that kept us moving
the waves started out low, a playful game
a constant refreshing nudge
your lips parted into a smile and our hands joined as one, as if our hearts could be influenced.

with a breath of the ocean breeze, i faced your beautiful life
i realized it was impossible to get past the barrier.
it wasn't a fault, more like an obstacle,
yet our hearts just weren't in it
the waves seemed to rain over my thirsty body as i took it all,
and then,
the ending of it all.

coming back was the hardest to do,
the waves acting diabolical; a possessed heart monitor
and there i see it.
arms containing two bodies,
because nothing could be more unbreakable.
interlocking fingers and eyes was never this excruciating,
i am under the influence of your graceless charm.

then i think of the seashells,
the fear to dive in.
to swim in the ocean
is to love the unknown
and to love the unknown
is to love you.

Question of the Day: If you could travel to two places, where would you go?

I know that I've posted pictures of her before, but I just needed to again! Amy Diamond and I are probably secret twin sisters, we just aren't sure about it yet. Sorry if this is photo-heavy.
This whole outfit looks so cozy, but it doesn't looks bulky, like many cozy clothes can sometimes be when worn together.
Yes, I'm a bad girl. I want that sequinned jacket. I can't lose my love for glittery goodness, it's too hard! I had a pair of my friend's jeans for a while, and they were purple and somehow went with so many pieces of my wardrobe.
The fit of that shirtdress is so constructed and oddly designed that I fell in love with it. I also love the colour of it! As well, I really like her hair in all of these pictures, and I wish I had my lighter hair colour back sometimes, but then other times, I'm content with what I have right now.
Isn't that vest just amazing?
I really need a cardigan like this. I own a ratted up pink knit cardigan from Old Navy and a turquiose/teal one from who-knows-where. I have had my friend Beverley's gold cardigan for almost a month now, and I just love it! I'm excited to see what will happen when she grows out of it. A local improv team wears cardigans, and I am mighty envious.

This last picture makes me wish again for my old hair colour. If I had that dress, I'd spin around to watch everything move!

Last summer, I went to International Music Camp, also known as IMC. It was such a fantastic experience, and I am looking forward to (hopefully) returning in the upcoming summer. My school has the brochure hung up on the wall, and I was looking at it when I noticed that I was included in one of the photographs featured inside. It is also on this page of the website, and if you truly are wondering, I'm the one with the striped socks. We were supposed to dress in a way that expressed our personality, so I dressed in bright colours from head to toe, like a lot of people.

I have been updating the playlist on my blog. I have added this one song that was written about me(well, not really) and it is called she'sgotstyle. Give it a listen, it's really good! And I'm not quite sure why the song 'Be Gentle With Me' hasn't been playing the full length of the song. It's probably just the original location of the music file.

Have a great week, my starry-eyed wanderers!
