FASHION // measuring a summer's day

I'm learning how to play Tangerine by Led Zeppelin on the guitar. Poor abused guitar, it's been sitting unused for over a year getting all dusty. Now I'm picking it back up again, and my bass too. My fingers are scolding me for it, but it's the price to pay, I suppose.

I'm very proud of my headband here. I had some scraps of calfskin leather that I cut into strips, but I had to keep interweaving new strips because they were too short to go all the way around. I also made myself a little bracelet (the dark band on my wrist to the right of the photo «««). I'm steadily building my Summer Bracelet Collection back up. Slowly, yes, but steadily. I refuse to wear long sleeves. REFUSE, I tell you. I'm going to force spring into submission. Force it to stop being winter and go into summer.

I'm looking for ways to improve this little blog. Got any ideas? If you do, I'd love to hear them. I've made a survey so you can be anonymous and diss me if you like. I'll still love you. Fill out survey here.

I guess that's kind of it. My life hasn't been very exciting lately, except for the millions of "you look like a hippie" comments I got at school. Yeah, people, that's kind of the point. Honestly.

jeans: Hydraulic // tank top: Abercrombie & Fitch // sweater: Old Navy // bracelets: assorted // leather headband: DIY

I had a lot of fun with makeup today. All from SweetPeaAndFay, I used a swipe of white from the inner corner of my eye all the way across, then some copper on the upper part of my lid, and a little bit of dark blue in the outer corners. The only bad part is that the white got on my lashes... will have to work on that.

I really ought to do a makeup tutorial post sometime. What do you guys think?

listening to: Tangerine - Led Zeppelin

    I think a make-up tutorial would be interesting even though I'm still too young to wear it! I'll store 'em for future use!

  13. Wow, I loved your hair (always do) and your shoes! The shirt was too low for me, so I would wear a cap-sleeved shirt underneath, or a higher necklined tank top under neath that cami you're wearing. :)
    I liked the pic of you and your cat! What's its name???
    p.s. yes please do a makeup tutorial thing! thnx in advance.

    Sure! -- We'd love a makeup tutorial! (Wouldn't y'all agree???)
    Make your blog better?? Okay... maybe you could go eccentric and make your blog more colorful. Though, to change your color scheme...well, yeah, it's hard when you (and I!) like it a lot.

    I'm going to go do the survey!

  22. Oh, I have a question for you. Either answer is okay, but I felt the urge to ask. I love your blog design and I'm going to try to have a giveaway every month with something made by me or someone else, and I wanted to know if perhaps you would like to enter your design for the winner to get if they win.

    Thank you!
