Rainbow Houndstooth




We just discovered a new spot to take photos at. It's a sanctuary. As to what sort of creature it is harboring, the signage didn't say. The place was deserted save for a creepy guy lurking in one of the shrubberies. I would have been spooked except that the guy was wearing a uniform of a local electric company. 

I was still a little creeped out though and told Myk the place looks like the setting of a serial killer movie where a group of friends stops by a deserted town only to disappear one by one. Guts spill, heads roll and everyone bathes in blood. I know. I watch way too many macabre films.

For what it's worth, the place looks like a sanctuary for birds. We also heard something hooting from a distance. 

Anyway, we just took photos at the entrance. This is probably the most colorful I've been in, like, ages. I can't remember the last time I wore this shade of pink. Back in college, pink was my default color. But now, this is the most scarce color in my wardrobe. I like wearing reds and yellows and blues more now. But it's nice to find out if this color still works on me. 

I thrifted this rainbow houndstooth jacket that is obviously too large for me last week. I will resize it in the future but for now, it will do.

And since you guys liked my curly hair in my previous post, I decided to curl it again today but only to regret it a few hours later when I was outdoors, drenched in sweat, feeling gross and looking unkempt. I should've sported an updo.

Salmon Rigatoni and Dory Coujons. In an effort to adopt healthier eating habits, I just recently decided to become a pesco-vegetarian. I've been avoiding red meat like the plague. But it's so hard when everyone around me is a red meat eater! So far, so good though.

I don't peg myself as a beach person. In fact, I'd rather be in an amusement park than a beach. But lately, I've been wanting to have a beach weekend getaway again, especially since I recently acquired a cute red and polka dot pin-up swimsuit. Ugh. I'm obsessed with this kind of swimsuit.

Well that was a long post. I hope you guys didn't get bored. Anyway, thanks for reading and I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!

  3. Curls in your hair really do look lovely; such as shame they don't last long in the heat (I can empathize). And that swimsuit... where do you find these adorable things??? Also, congrats on sticking to your new diet/eating habit... it really can be hard though when everyone else around you is enjoying something that you've committed to giving up :( Stay strong girly!! <3
