Have A Little Whimsy

How are you guys doing? Myk and I did a by-the-lake mini shoot. I went a little crazy again and edited a ton of photos, the likes of which will put the other entries in the shade.









































































We were supposed to take photos at Myk's place but my hypocritical alter-ego surfaced and wanted to take photos at a place where nobody would recognize me. So I figured we can just stop by somewhere and take some quick photos. After missing our stop, Myk and I had to backtrack our way to this lakeside area. By the time we got there, the sun was already setting. Perfect time for pretty sun flares!
























































Told you I got too crazy. 

I'm gritting my teeth as I write this and as I wait for my photos to finish uploading. My internet is currently taking its sweet time. What is it with internet providers these days? They are as unreliable as rain. Patience has never been one of my virtues, clearly. But I guess when you are paying for a service and you are not getting your money's worth, patience is a moot issue.
So I was really scared of toppling over the lake. It was so murky, I wondered what sort of unknown creature it harbored. Images of the Loch Ness monster and Hades abducting Persephone sort of formed in my too-paranoid mind. I am too much of a reader of folklore and Greek mythology, to be honest. 

Anyway, let's talk hair. I have sworn never to have my hair chemically straightened again as I am rather fond of curling it on an occasional basis and I don't really care much for stick-straight hair nowadays. But then some maggot took up residence in my brain a couple of months ago and I had it permed. It went bad. Like brittle and lackluster hair bad. I knew it's bound to get worse, what with the humid season and all just around the corner. So I finally decided to have it treated again to bring back the shine. So there. Pin straight here for the next month or so. I'll cheat and curl it occasionally.

I'm sporting mint-colored knit stolen from mother's closet and the DIY lace shorts I also wore in my previous entry. I'm also wearing a DIY detachable collar, which was made fun of by Myk once he noticed my collar is not attached to anything in my outfit. hahaha!


I made cookies and cream Popsicles last night and sampled them this morning. Look how they turned out! They're so yum. I mixed in a hefty amount of cream cheese.














































Myk and I's latest cooking date gave way to this: creamy mushroom pesto pasta and parmesan chicken

All in all, it was a great Saturday.
