It's been a pretty hectic week with the university starting this week and i have had some difficulty with courses, so exude the lack of posts this week. lots to take care of still, but i did take the opportunity to relax today. slept in, had some help from my friend nick and took care of a bit of housework - installing the wall hook for my guitar and putting up a shelf - made nachos for dinner, and saw taken 2 with adelinn. last weekend adelinn, maja, anna, and i saw looper which was incredible and i am getting excited about skyfall, so it seems as though i am on a thriller/action kick at the moment. there is something so lovely about going to the movies, i just always find it to be such a treat. what have you all been watching lately?

new blog?


You all may have noticed a few changes to the blog over the past few days, namely in the name of this blog. after careful consideration, i have decided to change it to suit me more well-roundedly. for a while now i have tried to stick to a specific theme when it concerned the fashion portion of this blog - a schoolgirl aesthetic. i picked this theme because i thought of both a traditional and a more liberal translation of the aesthetic applied to the majority of my wardrobe. however it still left me sometimes planning outfits around my blog aesthetic, not photographing other outfits all togehter or trying to see how i could fit certain outfits into an overly liberal translation of the style. my pervious posts have represented me but completely and i can stand behind the new name 100%.

*tl;dr: new domain name please adjust your gfcs and bloglovins! Follow the new blog HERE and on bloglovin' HERE

required reading 001: what are you looking at?


Over the weekend, my friends jeanette and krutsch and i popped into dussmann after dinner. i beelined it to the english book section, where i spotted the exact book i was looking for - what are you looking at? 150 years of modern art in the blink of an eye. this book, written by will gompertz, gives a unique and interesting overview of modern art, which i decided would be indispensable to my modest yet growing library. i am a very visual person and have an extreme appreciation for fine arts both as a former fine arts undergrad as well as an appreciator of art. in addition to my personal interest, seeing as i will be taking a handful of art history courses at the university for my graduate program, i figured i should get a head start and give myself some required reading. i generally take it upon myself to read the introduction and first chapter of each book that interests me before purchasing, so that is exactly what i did. thus, i can tell you all so far that this book is definitely worth the read, if only to enhance your general knowledge of modern art and aid your next trip to the MoMA, Tate, Hamburger Bahnhof, or any other modern/contemporary art museum.
