heartbreak monday

happy monday:) the best part of today is right now - its nighttime and amazingly hot and i can see all the lights in the jewellerybox city. indescribable. [ohmyheck just look at this room]
[cupcake monday on time!i went on a cupcake making binge this weekend thankyou K and G for your ever stimulating conversation while im slaving away at mixing batter. Although to be fair, G im impressed with your cupcake-icing skills]

word of the day:
conscientious [ˌkɒnʃɪˈɛnʃəs].adj
involving or taking great care; painstaking; diligent

i was having an average-to-great night but then i went and watched the video and saw the pictures of him. now its going to take me forever to get to sleep.

[distracting myself with pretty shiny things]

[ten minute blog break]
so its pretty much friday already. I cant even remember monday. [is that a problem?]

My dad got home from Ethiopia yesterday & he brought back the most amazing dresses for us. princess dresses. He also brought back 5bags of insanely strong coffee, which has resulted in our kitchen smelling like the compost section at a nursery.

I spent the afternoon with the man on the beach. or, watching the beach. Which may or may not lead to me having to stay up all night to finish this assignment. If you're ever in Ethiopia you need to try wushwush tea. Its pretty darn exciting.

a definite autumn feeling in the air [hums along to yellow submarine]
time is up. farewell.
"Let the world despise and leave me, they have left my Savior, too;
Human hearts and looks deceive me; Thou art not, like them, untrue.
And while Thou shalt smile upon me, God of wisdom, love and might,
Foes may hate and friends disown me, show Thy face and all is bright."

serendipity [ˌsɛrənˈdɪpɪtɪ]
the faculty of making fortunate discoveries by accident
[justsayit. what a beautiful word]

a pretty average weekend, as weekends go, and im not entirely sure why that is. highlight? peppermint tea drinking yesterday with the man. lowlight,a tie between the movie we saw afterwards and how im feeling at the moment.

[full moon lastnight]

for the past hour i have been obsessively stalking the wedding link that the man gave me and i have decided that i will be wearing these shoes to my wedding. the end.

[happy sundaytime]

[dear followers who have stuck around even though ive faded so often these past few days]

the weather is in its transition stage where its not entirely sure if it should be summer or autumn- the best season of the year- which provides a problem for dressing. but, that said, the past week has had some pretty amazing evenings. and nights. [i shouldknow, the earliest bedtime ive had this week was 1am]

in addition to late nights and early mornings my life has been filled with picnics, sunsets, letters, long conversations and longer goodbyes, tea, avenues at night, surprises, happy noises, new smells, pretty smells,

stars, chocolate eggs, hot chocolate, a failed probation day, things that have worked out in the end, awkward silences, happy sliences, pizza, sand in everything, admiration, dusk [and a general euphoric feeling]

i also pretty much owned valentines day when i made 2batches of red velvet cupcakes. without sounding too arrogant. theyre pretty much the best cupcakes ive ever tasted.

[a thought for the week]

yay* evening market time with C. come to me you amazing chocolate crepes.

think of your favourite food. the food that makes you feel happy. the food that you are convinced that, no matter how much of it you eat you will never get fat from eating it. marshmallows are my food. they taste like clouds and smell like sugar.
[just got home from camp. ilove camps. but they always make me feel doubly tired. and i drink way too much tea on camps]

-for the missed cupcake monday-
lady: thats quite a few girls. you've been pretty busy hey?
man: but none of the other girls dragged me out to look at the stars.

For with each dawn, she found new hope that someday, her dreams of happiness would come true." -Cinderella

happy tuesday. ordinarily i love tuesdays and today was good. yes, it was. However this insane capetown wind (which blows even though its sunny outside) becomes a bit much after four days.

[my dad is home from north africa]so im sorry ive failed at blogging these past few days. its been a little hectic here. too hectic for my liking. i just want to crawl into bed and sleep for a few days - or until the bags under my eyes have disappeared.
