weekend = shopping trip
My friend Anne was having a bad week and I think that nothing cheers a girl up more than a little shopping trip. So my mother graciously dropped us off at the mall and we just had fun wandering around, eating pretzels, not really buying anything. Though I did buy a pair of big hoops and a little shrug from Forever 21... those will pop up later in fashion posts, I'm sure.
weekend = good music
It came to my attention that my dad's band, Space Versus Speed (who I believe I have mentioned before) was playing at Port City Music Hall for their CD release party. Of course, I wanted to go. So my dad asked the manager of the club if his fourteen-year-old daughter was allowed — kind of a strange request — and I got in. I did get two black Xs on my hands; no drinks for Olivia.
The deal was that my job was to take photos. Now, all the other times I've seen my dad play, he's been pretty far away, and a telephoto lens was a good idea. So of course I brought my telephoto. And of course I SHOULD have brought my wide-angle. But I managed.
PS: All these photos are unedited (except for cropping and watermark). The first one amazes me... smoke + lights turned out great.
|that's my daddy :)|
Spose was there for one of the songs. Not quite sure what to think of him. Rap isn't really my thing.
But oh, what a good excuse to get dressed up!

weekend = inspiration
I am now in love with houzz.com. It is seriously the best thing since sliced bread, if you're a design-geek like me.
weekend = relaxation
Complete with facial steam and volcanic mud mask that makes me look like the Thing from the Black Lagoon.
weekend = key lime pie
The best dessert in the world, if you ask me. And oh-so-easy to make! It didn't take me 45 minutes to make a delicious pie that was gone in less than 24 hours. I added a little something extra when I made the crust: a healthy dose of allspice. It gives it a very unique — and yummy — flavor, a nice offset to the acidity and sugar of the filling.
weekend = cleaning spree
Sunday is my cleaning day. Clean room, clean mind.
weekend = new music
Recently discovered a song called "Jar of Hearts" by Christina Perri and I like it. The chords of her voice are slightly dissonant, which is interesting. Her vocals feel very raw.
Also loving Sara Bareilles — if you like Regina Spektor (*heart*) then you'll like her. And Natasha Bedingfield is pretty awesome too.
weekend = X-Files
Friday night - Sunday night
We're making it tradition. Every weekend night we watch X-Files. Yep. That trippy, paranoid, incredibly awesome TV show from the nineties. We're watching every episode of every season, in order. We're almost through Season 8... Season 9 is the last one... I don't know what we'll do once it's over!
weekend = being in denial
My Google chat status... sigh.
