Just suck in your gut
What gut?
The little pooch where you keep your extra cookies.

Old photo during a brisk weekend but no where near as cold as it is now. I don't know how I used to go out for New Year's Eve in my small dresses and just pretend I wasn't slightly cold. The things people do for fashion.

My initial thought was to get him a gift certificate for piping hot sex. But I don't want him to think I'm using him for his body.

Merry Christmas everyone, I hope it's been fabulous for you. Plan tonight is to go with my friend's family/friends to Chinatown and have dinner.. I can't wait!

What more says Christmas than a panda bear and poinsettas... obviously not the panda bear, but he was cute so I included him (I learned in Hong Kong that I could just watch a panda for hours eating bamboo). Even though it was around Thanksgiving when I was in Hong Kong and they were putting all sorts of holiday/Christmas lights and what not up. The buildings were adorned with all sorts of flashing Christmas related things. It was actually pretty cool, they really go all out over there.  I wonder if they got people with design degrees to design all the lights..

I had figure skating lessons until I was 13, and then my mom sobered up and realized I was a boy.

It's a beautiful day out for Christmas Eve.. hope everyone is having a wonderful holidays so far. I have been eating far too much food. Yes, to me holidays are an excuse to eat as much as humanly possible. And then hibernate after they are over. Personally that sounds wonderful..

Sharing some goldfish photos from Hong Kong.. the new 50mm lens took great pictures of the fish in their tanks. I had a blast going through the "Goldfish Village" (at Ocean Park in Hong Kong -- their equivalent of Sea World) and taking photos. Not sure why asian goldfish always have extra.. parts (??) on certain parts of their bodies. As far as survival of the fittest, I'm not sure what having bubbly cheeks, bulging eyes, and giant growths on their foreheads are doing for them.


He’s so soft — like a towel.

Along with seeing the Buddha (see last post).. there was an eerie path that my mom and I walked along to see some scriptures that were carved on planks of wood. It was cool, each plank of wood had a line carved into it and if you walked along the path, you could read the whole thing. Of course, there were more stray dogs along the way that I mistakenly thought were furry rocks (adorable furry rocks that ignored me).

Listen, you're my children and I love you but you're all terrible at what you do here & I feel like I should tell you, I'd fire all of you if I could.

Cable car ride that brought me to the Great Buddha.. walked around and shopped a bit, another typical tourist location. The cable car had a clear bottom that was kind of cool, though most of what you saw was water and trees. I also saw many stray dogs (which I was obsessed with taking photos of, not to mention the drizzle that was happening all day did not phase them) and stray cows.. which happened to be roaming around munching on whatever shrubbery was around minding their own business. And yes, they are stray cows.. they do what they want, where they want.


No one sheds like this family, it's like a bunch of Chewbaccas.

Another huge tourist attraction in Hong Kong is the Peak Tram. The tram brings you to the one of the highest points in Hong Kong with a beautiful view of the city. I love the Bank of China building, it's the one with the diamond pattern on it, probably the most recognizable building in Hong Kong. I wasn't about to get good pictures of Hong Kong at night, but it's absolutely beautiful.. they always have some sort of lights on the buildings.. especially around this time of year because Christmas is coming.


Ok, technical problems from last night have been resolved. Hair dryer plus toaster plus waffle iron equals boiling water.

Chloe Sevigny x Opening Ceremony Mary Ellen boots that I'm also on Ebay (here), due to same problems as I mentioned in the last post. Such beauties..


“Glitter is the herpes of craft supplies.”

This is devastating for me, but I'm selling my Giuseppe Zanotti glitter ankle boots that I took forever to track down. They are a tad too big on me and don't fit well on my ankles, a problem I attribute to my lack of height (5'2") and my average sized feet (size 7) - Hopefully someone who has taken online classes in fashion design will come up with more comfortable shoe designs..

My theory used to be that I could wear things that Rachel Bilson can wear (love her style!) because we're the same height.  (Then I found out on ShoeMint that she's only a 5.5 which means the ankles of any ankle boots she wears are significantly smaller than my large 6.5/small 7 feet. These Giuseppe Zanotti boots have been sitting in my closet for AGES.. and it's just time for them to have a new home. So if anyone is interested, check out my Ebay listing here.

Btw, ShoeMint is pretty awesome.. I've seen some of the upcoming shoes on the site and I can't wait! Affordable and cute? .. I'm hooked.


My eyes don't work, paint me a word picture.

My trip to Hong Kong was mostly eating and doing touristy things. Walking up to 6-8 hours in a day made footwear relatively important. Even sneakers didn't cut it some days. The weather was nice, mid to high 70s. Sad that I had to come home to all this coldness, though from what my mother has told me.. Hong Kong is colder than the weather we've been having lately.

What's the story, drunken whorey?

The market's in Hong Kong are always bustling with people. That's one thing about Hong Kong I'd never be able to get used to, there are just so many people everywhere!


I want that old couple to be us. Ya know, I wanna be gross with you.
I can be gross. People tell me I'm gross all the time.

The view from my aunt's apartment where I stayed in Hong Kong. Ridiculously beautiful. Oh, and her fuzzy little dog (that was the most adorable, innocent looking thing in the world).


The only complaint you have is that the American Kennel Club hasn't recognized you as a breed yet!

The sales are ridiculous lately, Alexander Wang (my love for his bags haven't subsided yet).. is on sale everywhere right now. It's taken ounce of self control to not purchase everything in sight. I am possibly waiting out on purchasing the Jane in black if the price is right. The only thing I purchased was the Quillon wallet in black which I will post later on. What's your favorite items that have been on sale lately?

I had purchased the UNIF Hellraisers and wore them out once, but ultimately decided to sell them off because I was in fear of the spikes breaking off if I happened to brush my feet against something (example, the curb). Knowing my clumsiness and OCD, this would happen sooner rather than later and I would just be upset with myself. They are definitely a bad ass shoe though!
