I'm back!!!! I'm FINALLY done with the last winter semester of MY LIFE (unless I randomly decide to get a Ph.D which is NOT happening, unless it's a Ph.D in wine tasting/beer drinking and shopping). SO I turned in my final term paper on Thursday, and then madness/hilarity ensued. Friday night, I may or may not have pretended I was back in college and taken about 57934857398 jello shots. Hey, they were GREEN AND RED, Christmas themed, so I obviously couldn't say no. Just couldn't. Then I had some more, and then we got home at 5 am. So, needless to say, Saturday was spent in bed, and it was DELICIOUS. Luckily, the hangover wasn't tooooo bad, so I did one of my favorite things in the world.
What's that you ask? Here's my secret to eternal happiness. Get a pair of eyeshades, preferably in satin, very much a-la Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany's (for anyone who doesn't know, she is my idol, along with Carla Bruni and Marion Cotillard.) Then, you get a solid pair of speakers. THEN, you blast your favorite tunes. I chose Radiohead for this special occasion. THEN, you put on your eyeshades, throw yourself across the bed, and pass the EFF out for the entire day, all while letting your mind wander to the most random places you could ever imagine and enjoy your music. My mind literally didn't know what to think about since school had been on my mind for so long, but after that personal Radiohead party, I feel like a new, recharged person! I highly recommend it. No, I wasn't on drugs. Unless you count the jello shots still coursing through my veins.
the perfect combo.
In other news...I started my Christmas shopping yesterday, except it kind of turned into personal shopping for myself. I know myself, so obviously I know what I want, and other people are just so much harder to shop for, duh. In the middle of a trip to Sephora (heaven) Sarah from A LIFE MORE EXCITING told me Brittany Murphy died and I freaked out. I asked my favorite Sephora helper if he knew who she was, and he said, "Honey, I'm not THAT gay" because I kept going on and on and on and ON about how awesome she was in Clueless and how sad I was to hear about her death, especially right before Christmas. And then I bought some taupe nail polish. For myself. In her honor.
THEN, I went to Urban Outfitters and fell in love with all the amazing t-shirts they have. I love v-neck tees, they are a staple and I could have one for every day of the year, and THIS year Urban Outfitters is trying to make me broke because I wanted one of everyone. I'm OBSESSED with Alice in Wonderland, and of course, they had the freaking cutest Alice in Wonderland shirts....damn you Urban, you and your amazing tees. And they're SO SOFT!!
THEN, I went and saw "Young Victoria" with my bestie and our moms (who are also besties...cute I know). And let me tell you, I wasn't expecting too much, and I got a LOT. It was amazing. I got goosebumps approximately 5739485739 times, and cried/teared up TWICE. That says a LOT, I don't typically cry...ever, and I'm not even PMSing...soo, go see it. It's seriously a great romance story, and it's worth seeing just to take in the GORGEOUS scenery and impressive wardrobe. Go. Now. Take a tissue, it's the friggin' sweetest love story ever, and it's not one of those that's wrought with angst and torture. I've included the trailer below. Oh, and the soundtrack is equally impressive for you music lovers.
So glad to be back in the blogosphere, sorry I've been MIA, but I promise to be good this winter break! Happy Early Christmas to all of you darlings!
