I should be asleep... It's 2 o'clock in the morning and it seems that I am the most productive at these late (or is it early?) hours. Friday night it was the new blog layout; tonight it is editing these photos and forming this post. I feel at peace right now, and it could be because I'm listening to Birdy and her  hypnotic and entrancing voice.  I can't believe this girl is 15 years old. Have you been listening to her? Interestingly enough, her cover of "Skinny Love" by Bon Iver played on the radio today - and I've never even heard the original song on that station! (or any station for that matter...) 

I spent Saturday shopping for prom shoes with my mom, and we were successful! I'm very excited for my whole outfit... :) It will be great fun taking photos with Nat and showing you guys later! And of course, I'm hoping prom will be enjoyable too...! Later on Saturday I saw The Avengers with my friend Miranda (that's her with the bow below). I absolutely loved the movie! Have you seen it? Every one of the super heroes had an important and vital role and no one main character trumped the others, which was cool. Anyway... I think I should go to bed now. Happy Mother's Day!! x

currently listening to // Birdy - The A Team (cover)

  8. Ooh! I loooooved the Avengers!!! I loved Iron Man (1 and 2), Thor, and Captain America before, and they were just as good as I was hoping! But Black Widow and Hawkeye totally came of their own in this, and even though I wasn't a huge Hulk fan, before, he was totally awesome in the Avengers! And Nick Fury - don't even get me started!! I loved his witty banter!

    Basically, I loved the entire movie. I've already seen it twice and am planing a third time!!

    In non Avengers news, I love your shoes and cannot wait to see what you wear to prom!! <3

  9. Avengers, yeah! Prom shoe shopping? Super yeah! Sounds like you've been having a lovely time lately! I hope that your prom is gonna be super fun. My only advice is that if you eat out before, don't try anything new! Stick with something safe. Then when you dance later on in ze night you won't get end up getting sick like I did. :D :D Ah, good times. lol okay, that might have been tmi. But I want it to be fun for you 'cause you totally deserve it! <3

    That piano bracelet is too cute. So is that necklace of yours!

  10. Your hair is beautiful! I wish I could pull that look off.

  11. I saw the sneak peek of your new blog layout on Instagram and could tell I was going to love it to pieces and then be totally dissatisfied with mine...hehe.
