A few nights ago, I was walking through the neon tunnel to return a book on reserve (savin' mucho monies!) and stopped dead in my tracks at a chalking:



But then I realized that it said "Outing Club." Thought to myself how horrible of a place Smith is to have a club with the express purpose of outing people. Then I realized that it was an outdoors outing club.

:( Not much time to craft lately...

R Rüm

We've moved two doors down! Same dingy and crackling wallpaper, one fewer window, but plus mega square footage and a fireplace!!

Will preface this by saying that among other others, ja - ich brauche eine neue Kamera!

My roommate Lauren got this for me (she's from Princeton). LOVE IT SO HARD:


VIVAN curtains, 10 at Ikea

We spotted a fallen branch propped up against it's mama tree on Chapin Lawn. Sweet, sweet Lindsay took me to the mechanical shop where all the engineering majors cut steel bars wearing those fugly protective glasses. Thought it would look cool if we had really thin, straight birch branches propped vertically inside the fireplace (like a single tier of bamboo), but it looked really stupid when we tried it with these thicker branches. So horizontal and orderly:

Lauren got these supafine moroccan boxes at home. Presumabely expensive because she won't tell me how much they were.

Angela and Dylan brought a handful of these leaves to our Mr. T themed tea party on Sunday. Lauren and I decided to do something with them... a la The Canvas Cafe in 2006?

Spy the Amy Butler fabric from Peapod below? BODY PILLOW MM!!

Little alcove next to the fireplace! Essential hot water boiler/heater and weeds from Community Gardens. We got the little ribbed milk glass lamp at Northampton Antiques for 15.

Olive ribbon from Essentials

Mika shits gold!

As if I didn't love Mika and his tight white pants enough already, check out these super fly kicks in the We Are Golden video. BAH!!!! I especially like the white and gold ones.

All handmade by Christian Louboutin. Signature red soles. SO GOOD

Shoes are for whilin' out. Can't wait to go to Shanghai for all the crazy/crazy cheap shoes!

I realized that one of the reasons I like Mika so much is that he looks like Derek Zoolander in the Love Today video. More to life than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?
