I’m so glad to be posting – I had a lovely pizza-weekend in my hometown. I stretched it this way and that and from a long weekend it turned into almost 6 days, like a good pizza dough ball transformed into a pie.
I had no access to the internets (mostly by choice) and I read, and read and read. The rest of those days I spent visiting family and running a million errands, but despite the myriad of chores, it was a good few days in my quiet hometown, which I haven’t visited in a whole 2 years (!).
It was so good to see my grandparents and a few thousand aunts (only a SLIGHT hyperbole) and all my childhood places.
Also, I got to dog-sit two gorgeous collies while there, and walking them in the park was one of the highlights of my trip – they even whine and bark like my beautiful Atos. I suppose all collies sound the same, like aristocratic creatures who are just LETTING YOU walk them. The pleasure is all yours.
While on my internet detox, I, for example, missed Taylor Swift premiering her new music video for Blank Space. I’m not a Swiftie (being a Whovian uses up all my fan reserves I suppose), but I’m watching the video right now, and and it IS extremely pleasing to the eyeballs. I adore the many looks, dresses and hairstyles – it’s Taylor’s signature fairytale thing, but more modern and edgy than ever before. Bravo, Miss Swift.
Have you seen it?
Today I’m sharing with you my sugar skull nails, because I’m mourning Halloween (and with it, October) being truly gone gone gone, and I thought I’d also show you parts of the outfit I wore to uni with these nails – no one here celebrates All Hallows’ or Dia de Los Muertos, so naturally, I was celebrating in my head – and plastering sugar skulls all over my body. : )
I love Coyolxauhqui – the leader of the southern star gods and Goddess of the Milky Way – those Aztec myths are fantastic, and those of you who’ve known me for a while know how much I enjoy them. This T-shirt with the goddess on it, perfection.
You know that thing when you’re truly and actually wearing things for YOUR OWN pleasure and amusement? It irks me to no end when people assume we base our choices of outfits and/or manis on the perception of other people.
I actually LIKE wearing my DoctorWho T-shirts, I don’t care no one in a 10 mile radius is a fan, you know?
: ) Rant over.
