This summer's bathing suit

While bathing suits never really interested me much (don't they look the same every year..?), when I saw this, I knew I had to have it. It's a vintage bathing suit, in a lovely neon yellow colour. High-waisted, lovely print and ah -- I'm in love. I haven't bought a new bathing suit since... I was 14?! Wow. So now, 12 years later, I think I deserve some yellow goodness in my life.

The dream dress

While the headline might indicate this to be my dream-dress, it isn't. I simply bought it while sleeping. Accidently, of course. I was cruising an auction site in bed on my mobile phone, and then happened to fall asleep. While in dream land, my finger still on the display, must've clicked "Auto Bid". And then la-di-da, the next morning I saw I was the highest bidder.






It's from Forever 21, has elastic denim-looking fabric. The only thing I like about this dress, is the splashes of colour. Let this be a lesson to you all. Don't sleep and bid.

Orange

So this little cutie was waiting for me at the post office today. My inital reaction to the big package was: "What the f have I bought?!". But then when I felt the weight and the faint clink of mechanics, I knew what it was.





It works like a dream. It took me a while to figure out how it works. What all the unmarked buttons did to my old university paper about japanese phonetics. It hums slightly, as is it an electrical typewriter. I actually already own one since years back, but it's one of those BIG, ancient ones. I never used it, but my interest in typewriters rekindled recently. As I love design and bright colours, this beauty was an excellent addition to my home.

Great news!

I have now officially lost enough weight to get into this little number:





I have not in any way tried to lose it on purpose, mind you. But I was glad to know my mid-twenties body is still able to LOSE weight, not only gain.
Isn't it pretty? Vintage clothing, how I love thee!

Tip of the day.

I just recently started using make-up again, so needless to say, my stash of paint for the face was rather non-existant. Not wanting to spend a lot of money on it, I decided to cruise Ebay. And I found this. Lovely design with both pen and liquid eyeliner. And it's only $1!


It's the first time in my life that I've tried liquid eyeliner. Lemme tell ya, it's hard. Re-learning everything make-up related is also kind of annoying. But it's fun!
