stuck at home instead

...and i couldn't be more pleased. although i was looking forward to the beach and the sand but i was sort of dreading the trip because i wanted to be at home this weekend. it's been a while since i've been on my bed, just relaxing. one thing i would have missed on the trip though is the great photo possibilities! instead, i got to spend more time with my puppy 'snickers' and gave him his second walk out -- he's such a baby! our manicurist also came over and i had my nails painted neon pink..LOL. i bought several neon colors -- green, yellow and orange just to welcome summer. it can't be beat. with the el niño, summer is early and here to stay. 

i love coffee. i love its smell. and i especially love 'peppermint mocha' or dark cherry mocha' from starbucks. but i cannot for the life of me consume a cup and not palpitate and stay awake all day. i got this from my mom. a single shot of caffeine causes my palms and feet to sweat (i know, yuck) and my heart to palpitate... but i was so sleepy on my shift last night that i had to down a small cup. the effect? slightly shaking hands and awake for almost 24 hours. it's time to take the sketchpad and color pencils out --- a gift from harry on v-day! warning: the images below are amateur sketches.

now you can open your eyes. LOL.
printed loose top - thrifted
jeans - chillypapas
fringe sandals - katrina 
(the daughter of the owner is an agent in my account and she had them custom made)
long necklace - props
bangles: wooden - raw material store in manalili | gold ones - from india
sunnies - thrifted at carbon

Follow vanilla ice cream

Hey Gizelle :)

....those sandals are nice, you and these accessories are just adorable! I love the smell of coffee as well. it's comforting, makes me relax and creamy delicious. I don't like the smell of cold coffee....yes, I can smell cold coffee, weird but I just know. Those sketches are rad.....I like how the floral print was drawn in the skirt.

Those sketches are lovely! It really looks like the pattern in the skirt is folded over upon itself~
And thanks for the wonderful comment! :D


Leah said...

You are so cute and what a cute dog as well.

Seriously, I love the sketches. xoxo

Jeje said...

I'm now craving for dark cherry mocha. HAHA!

Anyway, nice sketch :)


You're so adorable. I love the pattern of your shirt and turquoise is one of my favourite colours to wear, especially for jewelry (*noting your superb bangle*).

I actually like the smell of coffee, though I've never really been attracted to the taste (exception for Ice Caps and coffee flavoured ice cream).

And your sketch is adorable! I love how springlike it is!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

No beach, but a lovely dog to keep you company. Maybe you should try decaffeinated coffee - you get the taste but not the buzz. x
