lace me up

I have a major crush on tough-looking lace-up boots...I want to wear them with pretty dresses and thick tights to keep me dry in the wet Seattle winter.

Burberry does biker chick: Beautiful sporty-schoolgirl Chloes:
Lanvin breaks my heart again:

And of course, those floral Docs...I dream of owning these:

it's a love story, baby just say yes

in math class,
I create epic romances with animal crackers as the main characters.

secret garden

When I wake up in the morning, my main objective is to leave the house smelling like flowers.

These are my partners in crime:

Pacifica Solid Perfumes (I like Malibu Lemon Blossom for happy, sunny days, Lotus Garden for thoughtful, rainy days, and Tahitian Gardenia for special occasions)

Jo Malone Red Roses (for EXTRA special occasions; I wore this to my school's fall formal and got roughly 93948573 compliments)

Vera Wang Bouquet (if whimisicality had a smell)

Also, never underestimate the importance of gardeny-scented shampoo and conditioner. My weapons of choice:

For me, there's nothing that brightens a bad day faster than knowing you smell like a wood nymph frolicking in a sun-drenched field of much more optimistic can you get?

sticky fingers

After a long day,
Sometimes all you want to do is eat.
Why not make gluttony as pretty as possible?

Oh how I love pretty pictures...

Sparkling, together they will shine,
our hearts together, yours and mine.
