From Jak and Jil blog.
It pains me beyond words that I don't and (about 99.9% sure) won't own these

Tagged? Me?

It seems I've been tagged which is great because I like to talk about myself. Hello I started a blog. And not because I'm clever, or talented, or stylish like everyone else. I just like to talk about me. Whoo gen Y.
Josephine from aubergine tagged me and you should check it because it would seem she started her blog to be interesting and not talk about herself. Allow me to hyperlink.

OHH I wish someone had just been here with me for the last 20 minutes as I tried and failed hard to take a picture of what I was wearing today. It took about 13 snapshots of dark, grainy, flash-bleached-face/crackhoe pictures before I realized my apartment is insufficiently lit for night and that I'll have to record my fascinating outfit tomorrow. Needless to say, I wisely deleted all evidence. Shit gets around these days.

Whats truly, deeply, really unfair? Guess who strolled on into my boyfriends restaurant the other day?
This bad bitch. And daughter Lou. What the fuck?? Boyfriend, obviously, did not appreciate this as much as I would have.
Me: "so how did she look?"
Boyfriend: " know, like a poor girl" (Thank you les francais)
Boyfriend: "She was wearing like a jean from monoprix and a simple t-shirt"

Lara stone from November i-D (

I recently started really loving Lara Stone. First off she's not like 12. I don't have issues with 12 year olds but it makes me feel old to see preteens modeling in Vogue. Next they're going to start chucking fetuses down the catwalk (am I the only one who watches AbFab?). Also I like dutch models. They seem like a peace loving tulip holding clan of fun. And I can say that because I lived in holland as a small child.

Not much of note (ahem besides Ms. "I'm best known as a bag") lately. Had an unfortunate Sunday night where it seemed wise to be bicycling while drinking. I distinctly remember not being able to steer straight and a few falls which could have been deadly had there been cars. I also distinctly remember something about a pole and a lot of old italien men. OH shame.

Finally, since my internet is so shitty (I'm praying it won't delete this post) I haven't been able to keep up with Gossip girl and ANTM. This needs to be remedied immeadiately. It's been too long since I've heard lil J say something angsty.

Still soo busy. Now that I have a washing machine I've been going crazy washing everything in sight. My parents are still here so I've been hanging out with them a lot. Went to marc by marc store today, bought a wallet and coin purse (heh) and a triblend tshirt. So glad to have marc back in my life. Also my internets really really bad which is putting a damper on this whole blog thing but I'll be posting like 625987340 times a day once this is remedied. Cuz I'm cool like that.

How does it feel to be a french tv superstar michelle? I was watching this show for about an hour the other night and they were just drooling over her. LOVE french tv.

Crazy busy

  • Bullets because my brain says so
  • Um. Yes, please. If I were a talented person I would attempt this as a dyi.

  • So the Marc by marc store just opened here in Paris and it has been fucking bananas over there. Reportedly the parisiens can't get enough of the Marc love. I've been meaning to go over there and it might actually happen now that I live closer to the store. I have this deep inexplicable hate for the metro. I mean I end up taking it sometimes but I like to avoid it. Psyched for marcs cheap goods even though some of the stuff I got last year there has already broken but whatever. c'est pas grave y'all.

  • OH. But most importantly, I got a new apartment. I've been looking for 3 months because france is ridiculous and infuriating. But yeah it's pretttyyyy sick (um, sorry I've been talking too much to an ex boyfriend apparently) around saint germain. So thats good, have to unpack so much though and spruce up the place a little. Tragically this means I have to be without Kitten for a few days which is not ok and I don't know how she's going to sleep alone. Kitten has a tattoo. No joke. It's inside her ear.

  • So this blogging things kinda weird right? I mean I like it and all but you realize how bizarre it is when you try to explain to someone else that you read about other people everyday and then (if you're me) make rambling boring posts about your life.
  • Got a package from topshop yesterday which was awesome, purchases include this boyfriend blazer which I'm now seeing everyone and their mother has
  • and those leather skinny pantswhich I had to get a size too large and which everyone also has. Couldn't find good photo documentation of those but chu know what I'm talking 'bout.

  • Basically thats all I got right now, sooo busy with the moving that there is definetly no value in doing an outfit post.

  • Ps. I'm in a horrible position where I have to choose between seeing Uffie + Santogold OR Simian mobile disco. Any advice or soothing words would be appreciated.

Kitten is the cutest thing ever. Still unnamed, I'm concerned she's going to think her name is "little cat" forever. One drunken night I proclaimed to my boyfriend that her name would be "cuddle patches" to which he appropriately eyed me as a crazy. Her obsessions include pork and bananas and I'm pretty sure she thinks shes a little lion. It's difficult to take pictures of her though because shes so curious about the camera so I have to sneak up on her national geographic style.
