Vacation Withdrawal

 Shirt - Faded Glory (Yeah...I have some Walmart clothes :p) // Scarf - Charlotte Russe // Skirt - Gander Mountain (Seriously! Gander Mountain! It was like 8 years ago...me and my mom went to Gander Mountain for some outdoor stuff and instead found these skirts!) Belt - Cotton On // Shoes - Maurices // Rings - Skyline Caverns Gift Shop and Thrifted // Necklace (You can't really see it) - Skyline Caverns Gift Shop
Photos by me...unfortunately

 Sorry for the bad pics and all my rambling already! I borrowed my mom's camera so I could try to figure out how to use it. Just in case I can't get a photographer I want to be able to take pictures myself. I was hoping to be able to take it outside and play around a little bit...but it didn't really work out. I've got a ton of homework and house stuff to get caught up on ...these pictures were actually taken at 3 in the morning. I finally finished unpacking (you can see my unpacked suitcase in some of the pics), but I still need to eat dinner :p Phew! I think I'm finally caught up on everything though! The vacation was totally worth it though! I am glad to be home though. I really like my house--even though it's still being renovated.

 I think I've mentioned this before...but since my house is being renovated I don't have an oven. So yeah, that's my trusty microwave that I cook literally all my food in! I'm not complaining though :) It's amazing what I can cook in a microwave. As you can see...a mug brownie that happens to be in this awesome tiffany blue mug I just thrifted. Have I ever told you I absolutely love mugs? Well...I do. I have a lot of mugs. Mugs and shoes. That's what I collect. I got some good pictures today and I'm pretty sure I'll have time to go outside tomorrow to try to take better pictures! Obviously I've never done much photography. I did figure out how to use the tripod and self timer... so that's progress. And yay for my super awkward poses. I mean SUPER awkward. Whatever, I'll get better at this eventually!

My thoughts are so out of order at the moment...and consequently so is my writing. So, here's just some final thoughts. For some reason my cat likes to sleep on my suitcase...it's neither comfortable nor in the sun, so I have no idea why she sleeps there. Although, right now she is sprawled out on my back--what can I say, she's a cat. Yes, those are Dean Winchester eyes (the other eyes are Aiden Turner who plays Kili in The Hobbit) I had to do some eyes for life drawing. The child's face was also for life drawing--it's a copy of an Augustus John sketch. I had to scan some drawings in for a collage assignment. I think that's all, hopefully I'll be back to 100% soon!

 What about you? Vacations are fun, but when they're done are you ready to get back into the swing of things? Or are you more exhausted than before your vacation (like me)? Well, thanks for reading, and I hope you have an awesome day!


  1. Love your outfit! That skirt is adorable!
    And honestly, I think your photos are much better than mine would be if I attempted to take them by myself. :P you did a good job!
    Ooh, Dean Winchester eyes? I thought I recognized them! I've been catching up on my Supernatural lately (I'm only on season four after watching the first season years ago).

  3. I think you did a great job on your photos! I just recently got a tripod and I cannot figure out how to take good pictures yet! Vacations are always nice, but I do need a day or two when I get back to get used to a normal routine again:)

    1. Hey if I can do it, you can! I've avoided cameras like the plague and my pictures today turned out alright!

  4. You have superly pretty eyes! I love your blog so many different things to look at! Want to follow eachother?
