Sometimes people forget that bloggers are real people. That we do other things besides take pictures, edit them, and blog about our lives that can often seem too planned out. That we have real jobs (wait, what? you have a degree in something?), take classes, and have boyfriends, husbands, and kids (or for you men, girlfriends, wives, and kids).
Sometimes even I forget these things. Wait, I do other things besides blog? Stunning realization happening over here.
But in all truth, I do other things than wear my Nike’s to the gym and walk around my house (and outside – what can I say, I’m such a granola hippie) barefoot. A girl’s gotta keep her closet in shape as much as she has to keep her butt in shape. So, I buy myself (sometimes too much) closet additions on HauteLook. I wasn’t paid to say this, in fact I paid them a hefty amount of money in the last month for all the stuff I bought; this is just pure, unadulterated love. I could buy things on HauteLook all day if I wasn’t such a broke college student. But I guess I’m really not that poor, because I bought myself some shoes.
My birthday is coming up. July 30th. Feel free to send me a cake around that time if you love me lots. I love cake, and I love you even more.
I consider this an early gift to myself, and I’ll say the same for every bowl of froyo I have from now until that date. Always gift yourself. It feels great.
These sandals make me think of Bermuda – I went there on a family cruise back in the eighth grade, and it still sticks in my mind when I think of anything tropical. It was my grandparents’ 50th Anniversary celebration; the one and only cruise I’ve ever been on. Good thing I rode up and down the elevators the whole time, because it was so worth it. I also fell in love with a boy that wears Polos and lives on Staten Island. We totally connected over pool towels.
I’ll be wearing these gems to my drawing class that starts today. Bringing in the breeze of Bermuda, and dreaming of a place worthy of a Free People magazine spread. I hope the other students think I’m artsy.
