i miss my coffer (shown in this picture in the exact colour etc). it’s sitting at home. being kind of sad.

i just had a happy meal. i always have happy meals. and you’re right: i do miss my childhood and also yes i order kids’ portions because i count calories.

sometimes.

so i had a conversation with the people at shopbop this morning about returning a non-returnable pair of Genetic Denim slouchy cigarette jeans and buying the exact same pair but in a smaller size. they obliged and i was like, gee these people are nice.

so, anyway, i think i’ll go spend my saturday night with Lord of the Rings instead of partaking in activities that involve fervid  consumption of various alcoholic beverages.

Would anyone be interested in a pair of white TUK Creepers that looks exactly like this in almost brand new condition?

i bought them for $70 at the LF store in Boston but i hardly ever wear them because they’re slightly big for me (I’m an 8-8.5 depending on cut).  if you’re interested please email at annabelxtan@gmail.com. i’ll sell them for $35-40!

If you’re interested I’ll definitely send you pictures. I’m just too lazy to reach for the camera right now, hah. well i’ll probably post pictures this weekend. watch this space.

if i don’t get a response within the next week or so i’ll probably put them up on ebay.

Some fruitarians will eat only what falls (or would fall) naturally from a plant; that is: foods that can be harvested without killing the plant. These foods consist primarily of culinary fruits, nuts, and seeds. According to author Adam Gollner, some fruitarians eat only fallen fruit. Some do not eat grains, believing it is unnatural to do so, and some fruitarians feel that it is improper for humans to eat seeds as they contain future plants, or nuts and seeds, or any foods besides juicy fruits. Others believe they should eat only plants that spread seeds when the plant is eaten. Others eat seeds and some cooked foods. Some fruitarians use the botanical definitions of fruits and consume pulses, such as many beans and peas or legumes, or pulses and legumes. Still further definitions include raw fruits, dried fruits, nuts, honey and olive oil, or fruits, nuts, beans and chocolate. (via Wikipedia)

The first time I heard of fruitarianism was in the movie Notting Hill (ooh how I love this movie. I miss Portobello Road now. Sob) when Hugh Grant’s sister comes to visit and she can’t eat anything because she’d only eat anything that falls off a free. I know of no such morals. Whatever. I’m just doing it for a day because I feel a bit of a slob after having consumed the remains of my carne asada fries as shown in the last post. I endorse dietary extremisms wholeheartedly.

Study snack, anyone? Hellz yes.

Pine-cran soju. Alcoholic karaoke is the ultimate form of a study break. Hellz yes.

Korean Wings. Lol.

The video to BSB’s “Everybody”. There was a Korean girl drinking an entire bottle of alcohol somewhere in it.

Carne asada with fries = new love of my life


I wore my AA U neck dress, F21 high waisted shorts, H&M faux fur jacket (it was actually fairly cold) and Juicy Couture flats (not seen).

Study breaks rock.

i think i need this t-shirt in my life

2) i’ve been surfing food blogs instead of fashion blogs lately because i realize i am sick and tired of cafeteria food and again am in dire need of inspiration for new and cheap recipe ideas. i found a blog run by a couple who live in NYC who only spend $30 a week on groceries and make awesome food, find them at thirty a week. one thing i do wonder, though, is the amount that they eat because i for one like to eat and eat a lot.

3) so lynette asked me what i do after school. truth be told, since this is my final year of college, i pretty much spend all my free time working on either a) homework or b) project work i.e. lab work. what little free time i have left, i end up surfing the news, etsy, ebay, bidding on ebay, losing auctions on ebay, food blogs, fashion blogs and spamming people’s walls on Facebook with random snippets I find on Tumblr. my social life revolves around trips to the local grocer’s in the middle of the night for a chai latte, streaming films and Skyping to maintain a healthy long distance relationship with someone who is across the continent. i also spend a lot of time bearing the brunt of verbal attacks from my housemates who claim i am so antisocial. i obviously beg to differ. it’s not like i’m on the computer 24/7. really.

other than that, i think the most exciting thing going on right now is my shoe collection which is collecting dust because as much as i’d like to, i can’t bring myself to wear 6 inch booties or heels to class everyday.
