this is the definition of neontastic.

I bought this neon green stretch lace fabric off of eBay (here) and it is AWESOMEEEE. Made these leggings today, and I just want to wear them every day, with everything, even though that would just result in eyesores and headaches :P And they work perfectly with my painted shoes, and THIS SWEATER. Can we talk about this sweater?! Found and purchased at good ole Salvation Army :)

My BFF Duncan and I went to Montreal last weekend (ya know....since we're 18 now and the drinking age in Canada is not 21...jk jk). We got totally wasted! JUST KIDDING. I guess we could have. But we kept it classy and just ordered some drinks with dinner :) Pukin' and partyin' aint my kinda scene.

Anyway, check it out:

His mother is ADORABLE and likes to knit, and she knit us these duckies (just in time for Easter) and inside were plastic easter eggs filled with chocolate! She also baked us cookies shaped like duckies, bunnies and eggs! INSANITY/I LOVE HIS MOTHER/I WILL FEED MY CHILDREN BUNNY COOKIES ONE DAY.

Armed with passports, waiting at the border for longer than necessary.

Waiting at customs for foreeevzzz gets supahh boring.

Finally in Canadaaaa!!

spring break is the best

Whilst in Montreal last weekend, I came across these babies:

(which you can purchase here, if you'd like)
And guess where my next stop was? Not the cash register at that overpriced department store, but the H&M down the street! I got me some plain white canvas shoes, not unlike those above (although of course, not colored) and did me some arts and crafts :]

Check it out:

say it with me: SPRING. FREAKING. BREAK.

Finallyyy school is DONE (at least for a short while). And the weather is gorgeous! A fantastic turnaround from icky, rainy and SNOWY yesterday.

I'm in denial. It's summer, okay? OKAY? Okay good. And yeah, I know this is why I keep getting sick, but I LIKE IT TO BE SPRINGY/SUMMER IN MY HEAD, and we're going to keep it that way.

These sunglasses ROCK.

Recycle it!

For art class, we had to create something, anything, out of recycled objects. Here's what I did:

sorry for the sudden barfage of posts.

I guess that's what happens when you take a break, and then accumulate MILLIONS OF THINGS to blog about. I'll take care of a few right now.

First, one of my friends recently had me model for his photography class assignment, and here are the results! yay!

Secondly, I've been tagged! Rachael of Fruit in a Box tagged me to pass on "Seven Things You May Not Know About Me"...y'all know the rules: if you get tagged, tag seven more people to do the same!

So here goes, 7 things about moi!
1. I love to climb trees. My favorite is the one right in my front yard, but it's getting to be too small....I used to climb it all the time! first grade...haha. Still, it's a great place to just sit on a nice day.
2. I didn't know how to ride a two-wheeled bike until I was ten. Before that, I always rollerbladed while my friends biked. It felt so good to finally learn, but now I want to go back to rollerblading! I just got a new pair for my birthday last year, so I'm planning on breakin' them out this summer!
3. I'm a huge fan of Alicia Keys. I have her poetry book and every one of her CDs. She's amazing.
4. I am so beyond excited for college that I forget that I am also completely beyond petrified for it too.
5. On a similar note, I can't believe I'm graduating in less than three months. INSANITY. Me? old? out in the real world? what?
6. I took a bubble bath today, and my hair and skin smell delicious :) Go Bath and Body Works!
7. I'm going to Montreal, Canada this weekend with the same friend that took those photos above. Yay!

I tag:
Modern Marie

Pink Blue Whale
Song of Style
Pump up the Frump
Dear Lord the Cheese!
Work With What You've Got

Time to...go to the gym? Goodbye, hair-that-smells-so-yummy!

private tea party for two

My and my good friend Isaac Newton had tea together (along with many other mathematicians and scientists, like Albert Einstein).

My throat is killing me, so a tea party was an obvious solution. I'm home sick from school, watching Sesame Street and Dragon Tales while I put together a craptastic poster about fashion during the Renaissance (and in French, no less!).

So naturally, after watching PBS Kids for too long, it was time to step it up and discuss Einstein's theory of relativity, while drinking flavored black tea.

Must be purchased before this kind of day comes along again:
I took these photos at the park right by my house on that day that felt like summer about a week ago. That day neeeeeds to come back!
