Except when I'm at my boyfriend's house,
so no posting unless I'm here.

Wednesday is wet...

Reading break is over, as well as my midterm from Monday. Phew, not so much of a break as studying, but at least I got to spend most of the day with my baby bunny.
Boudica is so well behaved, and she's getting litterbox trained! Hurrah... soon she will be able to hop around the house at her leisure.

This morning I don't have class until later, so I thought it would be a good chance to catch up on what's going on in le fashion world, and to do some internet window shopping :) I feel like I'm stuck in a fashion rut. Every day I pull on the same pair of jeans (well, I currently have 4 pairs in rotation - they are all dark, either bootcut or skinny, and have either bum pockets or bum flaps... boring! They're all AE as well), throw on a tshirt over my Lulu Lemon tank bra, and grab my Hurley grey peacoat. This coat has NOT been keeping me warm lately, and as I've had it since July of last year, I'm getting a little sick of it. I want some popping colour!
I've been wearing mainly large tshirts from AE (I'm a small) because I love the way they hang, and I need to get in a bit better shape before I decrease the size. I'm in no way too big for my body type, just there's some mama bear winter fat on me still.

Argh, what to do...

American Eagle has some cute dresses in right now. I adore dresses, but as the weather is totally sucky, I have to wait to wear them. I want some more versatile ones, and some that are more girlie. The few that I do have (one Roxy is plaid, the Volcom is printed) are totally just summer hanging out at the beach. I want a dress that I can wear casually with heels and a cute necklace.
Unfortunately, one of these dresses are strapless, which I do not rock.

I've also been wearing my boots from Aldo pretty much straight since October. I feel the need for a shoe change. I got those wedges a few weeks ago and wore them to my sister's basketball game this past weekend, but it is still too cold for bare toes. (I don't have any tights I could wear with them either)

Oh my goodness... have you seen the new Club Monaco monthly must haves? (okay, I admit it's near the end of Feb, but I haven't had internet and when it's running, the time!!) There's a gorgeous gold necklace with a piece of coral on the end (cannot get a picture) --> $50. I have been wanting a "signature" necklace for quite some time now, maybe this is it? Third from the left on the site.

Also, because I'm a redhead now, I am able to wear gold. Never was before, but it's also going to be spring soon (let's hope) and gold to me seems more beachy and alive than silver. Tastes are a changin'!
stackable rings from Banana Republic - cute.

I'm heading over to ETSY now to see what I can find. One of my very good friends, Tianna, is the owner of Tetrik. Buy her stuff!

So it's reading break, and I've been studying.

Also playing with the new baby bunny (omigosh she is too adorable).
Busy busy means no time for shopping online, getty images, google and the like.
But of course, time for Facebook :)

Hopefully next week I will be back on trap in the blogsphere!

Our little angel...

I never thought I would get a bunny, and now that I have Boudica I never knew I could feel this much love to something not my boyfriend.

Mama loves you, Boudica :)

Boudica (also spelled Boudicca, formerly known as Boadicea, and known in Welsh as "Buddug")[1] (d. AD 60 or 61) was a queen of the Iceni tribe of what is now known as East Anglia in England, who led an uprising of the tribes against the occupying forces of the Roman Empire.

Boudica's name
Until the late twentieth century, Boudica was known as Boadicea, which is probably derived from a mistranscription when a manuscript of Tacitus was copied in the Middle Ages. Her name takes many forms in various manuscripts–Boadicea and Boudicea in Tacitus; Βουδουικα, Βουνδουικα, and Βοδουικα in Dio–but almost certainly, it was originally Boudicca or Boudica, and is the Proto-Celtic feminine adjective *boudīka, "victorious", derived from the Celtic word *bouda, "victory" (cf. Irish bua (Classical Irish buadh), Buaidheach, Welsh buddugoliaeth). The name is attested in inscriptions as "Boudica" in Lusitania, "Boudiga" in Bordeaux, and "Bodicca" in Britain.[4] Based on later development of Welsh and Irish, Kenneth Jackson concludes that the correct spelling of the name in Brythonic is Boudica, pronounced [bɒʊˈdiːkaː][5] (the closest English equivalent to the vowel in the first syllable is the ow in "bow-and-arrow"). The modern English pronunciation is IPA: /ˈbuːdɪkə/.[6]

We got a baby bunny!
We've named her Boudica, and she is a bundle of fluff.
A Lionhead bunny, only 9 weeks old.

Will post pictures later...

We got 2 goldfish last weekend (Plato and Archimedes) and we're thinking of getting either a bunny or a guinea pig this weekend...


Which would you get?

wednesday afternoon sun shines through my window

and into my eyes.

even with the blinds closed it's super bright.
which would be magical if i could go and do a photoshoot,
but i think i will be hopping in the shower (again) shortly.
i need to re-do my hair.
the red is fantastic, i just don't know how to style it!


I want, I want, I want.
these words reverberate in my head.

I want my hair to grow.
grow way down,
to my bottom.

so if I wanted,
I could brain it like rapunzel.
or wear it as a top like ariel in the summer…
or even put it up in a big bun like cinderella.
I’m glad I dyed it red.
I think it suits me.

but I still want it to grow.

I wish I had and wore dresses.
I have a few, but they are never what I want to wear in the morning.
I want floaty light fabrics.
and pastels.
I love pink.

some princess get-ups would make me really happy.

A Fresh Start.

I've been so tired and sore lately.
Also bored with my other blog.
And lazy, about posting pictures.

This one will be more fun, bright, and easy on the eyes.
