hocus pocus boots

Dear friends, I hope you are having a good weekend! Yesterday was a long but very fun day. We had a youth festival in the middle of the city, with a battle of the bands, skateboard park, and carnival. My day was filled with mcdonalds cheese burgers, slurpees, art projects, and loud music about to make me deaf. It was a good time..but I was there for 14 hours, so that part wasnt so good. What did you do yesterday?

This weekend I am on a mission to : make a new dress, bake a key lime pie without graham crackers for the crust (wish me luck!), and find a second hand book worth indulging into. My favorite books of all time are books filled with poetry. I always find really good ones at thrift stores. Im not a fan of the thrift stores in this city though - so I never find very many good ones, you should go look for one though, and tell me what you think!

  1. I just had a McDonald's cheeseburger for the first time in so long, extra pickles all the way! Yum yum. What a guilty pleasure... Your work sounds very rewarding and interesting.

    and what a cool layered dress! I can't wait to see what you make :] and I think I've seen your wear that birdcage necklace, it sounds dreamy.

    The train tracks I usually takes pictures on is right behind my house; luckily it rarely is used, it's so loud! I've been trying to scout new photo locations though, since it seems to help me enjoy my hometown a bit better, even though I feel "stuck" here.

    I hope you're having a beauteous weekend!

  3. I am utterly in love with your hair! If I could make mine do that, I'd be the happiest person in the world, I think. Anyway, poetry is the best! I'm so happy you love it. And the shoes, Kate! I would wear those in a heartbeat. How do you always manage to look so cool? It's like you exude coolness, haha. Anyway, I will be trying your real hair braid trick -- it's lovely.

  6. OH GOD, I want a McD cheeseburger. OMG I am tempted to go to McDs now, but it's quite far... not worth it I guess. Sad. Oh I love the braid across your forehead, is that your real hair or a headband? Love it!!! I want to go to a carnival, I'd have so much fun, act like a child and get super high off candy!!! Those booties are cute, I wanttttt :)

  19. You look lovely as always and I love your hair! Your weekend sounds like it was fabulous! One of my favorite books I found at a thrift store and it's called "Hope for the Flowers". It's from the 70s and it's like a children's book for adults. It has illustrations and it's in the form of poetry. It's amazing :]

  21. Mmm, key lime pie is my favorite! I hope you get to make it. I love poetry as well, I just recently got a collection of Emily Dickinson's poems and I keep it in my purse and pull it out periodically and open to a random page. Her poetry is sensational

  22. Those shoes are seriously so lovely!! I saw some so similar in the antique mall, but they were REALLY antique.. and super skinny. There was no way I could fit my feets into them!
