photos taken by my mum - woah, a change of scenery!
I love it when my outfits surprise people. Now, I'm not the most outrageous fashionista, so I don't think it happens that frequently, but today was apparently one of those days. I put on some bright clothes, pull my hair up, and my little cousin says, "I like your costume. What play were you in today?"
...I'm going to take that as a compliment, because I don't really know how else it should be taken! Zack and I are theatre people through and through :)
Speaking of theatres... tomorrow at this time, I'll be in/on my way to the theatre where Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part Two is premièring, probably already becoming teary-eyed! Good thing I've already got my water-proof make up ready - one cannot be Bellatrix Lestrange with dripping mascara, haha.
And speaking of Harry Potter, I still have the sixth and seventh books to re-read. Nine hours, guys, do you think I can do it? Tonight will be spent drinking the strongest coffee the pantry has to offer, doing jumping jacks every time I get tired, and achieving that marvelous sleepy-eyed look so I can use less eyeliner while making my eyes look dark and villainous for my costume! The less eye make up, the better, because despite the labels' claims of waterproof-ness, I don't trust they'll hold up to my bawling. Who knows?
I re-worded the title to this post several times so I could incorporate the word "peaches". Today my mum and I went downtown to the farmer's market (consisting of -gasp- a full two stalls!) and bought zucchini, plums, canteloupe, tomatoes, nectarines and peaches! My absolute favourite part of summer is the fruit - cherries and peaches being tied for the number one place on my list - and so this made me very excited. Just thought I'd share :)
Now I'm off to tackle 1411 pages of awesomeness! Wish me luck!
PS - I can't wait to finally be able to post a look on Chictopia with the occasion marked "farmer's market". I don't know why this is my kind-of life's ambition, but it is. And now it shall be fulfilled.
