melted goodness.


Today has been a great day so far. I had a great sleep - after reading a few chapters of Anne Frank's Diary book - and journalling.


Last night I got so bummed out. I went and bought my favorite sorbet from the grocery store. Mango flavored.
I offered a friend a bowl - and then I forgot to put it back in the freezer, so last night when I wanted to eat some, I saw my soggy melted sorbet sitting there in the worst state. Ah. Do you like sorbet?


I am very into reading and am always up for a good book suggestion. What is your favorite book or what books would you suggest?

This evening we have our weekly neighborhood BBQ. I am excited for that because Nathan gets a second birthday cake - which means I get a slice :) The perks of being someones darling.

I am off to fill in University papers and get things in order for a new semester of Online schooling. What a joy!

Have a fantastic day! x


Also - Listen to the song "Litzomania" by Phoenix. This song puts me in such a good mood. I really diggs.


  1. Houndstooth! I love that dress! I also love "Listzomania" a lot lot lot, it makes me wanna dance.

    My favorite has to be Picture of Dorian Gray, but I'd also recommend Bless Me, Abuela. It's a really touching book, I would say.

    Hope you have a great day too!

  2. your dress is so so cute!

  3. Sorry to hear about your sorbet! It sounds very yummy. I like your dress lots.

    As for book suggestions I'm a huge fan of Chuck Palahniuk and David Sedaris. Very different writing, but both super talented. I'd recommend Choke by Palahniuk or Naked by Sedaris if you're interested. I'm going to see David Sedaris speak here in April, so excited!

  4. i love that pattern so much!! i'll defintiely listen to listzomania soon.. maybe after some homework? haha

  5. What a lovely mod-inspired outfit! Very 60s chic, love it!

    Ah, Anne Frank is one of my favorite historical heroes. So brave, courageous, beautiful.

    Have you read "Water For Elephants?" I'm a huge reader as well, but usually when I've read a book once, I don't feel the need to read it again.. let me just say I'm on my third time with this one. Simply incredible.. please check it out!!

  6. Adorable print on that dress. I like that song too; quite addictive.

  7. love ur houndstooth dress :) look fierce =p~
    and liztomania is one of my fav song :)!
    have a nice day

  8. I love sorbet. I'm vegan, and so that is really the only frozen treat that I can eat. And trust me, I eat a lot of it.
    Love the hounds tooth print!
    Hmm, when it comes to books, my favorites are probably The World According To Garp by John Irving and ANYTHING by David Sedaris (But Me Talk Pretty One Day is probably my favorite among his books). I seriously laughed hysterically when I read my first David Sedaris book. In fact, I almost felt sick because I laughed so hard. =]

  9. love the houndstooth! and that wall is the perfect background...


  10. i read the diary of anne frank again a few years back. i loved it!
    my favorites are jane eyre, cannery row, to kill a mockingbird and i love f. scott fitzgerald

  11. So cute with the print:)
    Have fun BBQ'ing! :D
    Cake <3

  12. Love the large, exaggerated houndstooth! Books are awesome, read Oryx and Crake, by Atwood. I'm always telling everyone to read that. Or Never Let Me Go, by Ishiguro. Or if you're up for a challenge, read The Greenlanders by Jane Smiley. That book is incredibly life affirming. It's about the Viking settlement in the 1200s in Greenland. Awesome.


  13. Wow, thanks a heap Julia..excited to look at those!

  14. oh your dress is really lovely!!

    nice blog btw!


  15. Lovely, the dress is really nice. I like that you enjoy reading, i recommend you "The Psychoanalist" (i think it's the translation...) from John Katzenbach, it's a little bit of suspense... Have a nice semester online! lol


  16. What an adorable dress! I haven't had time to read lately. so I really don't have great recommendations... but I do love sorbet? Hehe! Rainbow flavored! Brett and I can eat an entire tub in one sitting!

  17. Kate.. me and your blog have now been aquainted! And all I have to say is.. you are cute as a button. Seriously. And I love Phoenix! Rad band!

    soo much love.
