This is what happens when a group of friends and I throw a party. This wasn't just any party though, it was Promcoming (y'know, promcoming), and it was probably one of the highlights of my year. There was food, music, and TINSEL. I still can't believe it's already over, because it was just so fantastic. Oh, if you're wondering what that god-awful loaf is, I'll be glad to explain. At one point of the party we had a movie trivia game and if you guessed wrong you had to eat a piece of fruitcake. But this wasn't any ordinary fruitcake, it was the crappiest of all crappy fruitcakes. It was King Crappy, actually. When you smelt it you could taste it and it did not smell good. One person had a bite of it and nearly died so we switched over to eggnog (which was still pretty crappy). This night was so perfect, though, and I couldn't have done it without my perfect friends (and I'm not just saying that, I have the greatest friends ever.) Off subject, it's almost next year! Let's make ridiculous goals and stay up to wee hours of the night and be giddy that the world didn't end on the 21st. Happy New Year, everyone!! I just want to take this moment to thank all of my lovely followers~ I really couldn't ask for anyone better than you group of cool cats, so danke schön!! ♡

sweater: thrifted, brooches: thrifted, belt: forever21, skirt: thrifted/DIY, tights: forever21, boots: forever21

It's really sad to think that Christmas has been over for an hour in Texas. IT WAS SO GREAT THOUGH. You can't really tell in any of the photos, but I had twinkle lights in my hair today. I breath Christmas spirit, I swear. I got some pretty neat presents, too~ (Records: Lou Reed's Transformer, Dead Man's Bones, and The Velvet Underground & Nico. Other stuff: tie dye knee high socks, combat boots, and, ukelele strings). In the afternoon I went to my Aunt's house (and we all know how funnn~ family functions are...sadly there wasn't as much drama as i hoped for) and ate too much food and then afterwards my parents, my grandma, my sister, and I went to go see Quentin Tarantino's: DJANGO UNCHAINED. If you haven't seen it I seriously recommend it- Quentin out-did himself. It was so good, and I can't wait to see it again. After that I got home and watched the Doctor Who Christmas special (sorry not all) and now I'm here writing this lovely post. The only thing I regret about this year was not watching/recording Home Alone 2: Lost in New York and the old Jack Frost Christmas special. THERE IS ALWAYS NEXT YEAR (can you feel my excitement?) 

How was everyone else's Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanza/etc. day?

by the way it's winter and i'm wearing shorts (thanks texas) outfit: beret: etsy, shirt: thrift, shorts: diy/thrift, tights: forever21, shoes: urban outfitters, collar clips: etsy, old vintage photos: thrifted, socks: urban outfitters, bag: handmade. Alright, so I made this bag in fashion design and I am GREATLY considering making more of these (with misc. artists & fabrics) and selling them on etsy. Does this seem like a good idea? Would anyone buy them? 

Well Christmas is in TWO DAYS (!!!!!!) and I really need to start wrapping presents (oops). So I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas! Happy Kwanza! Happy Hanukah! Happy Whatever!

It's that time of year where I always have a crush on someone, but hey life goes on and I'm cool with it. (what do you do with a boyfriend anyways? do you feed it? do you have to pay a fee? i don't even know) Anyways, enjoy this playlist.
