Kind of Obnoxious

Welcome back, dear readers, to yet another Marvelous Monday!
This week's theme: neon!
I don't know if this will come as a surprise or not, but I don't own any neon clothes. I know, it's shocking, right? Well, I do have some neon accessories, and I wore a couple of them with a simple black and white dress for extra impact.
That fantastic, aggressively neon bag is a Nine West bag my mom and I found in Ross last December. I loved it so much that my mom ended up getting it that day and then giving it to me as a Christmas present. Considering the fact that it's Nine West, it was dirt cheap, and an amazing find.
The necklace has a much less interesting story. It was a dollar from Forever 21.
And I have to apologise for the state of my room. Half of it is dominated by Kittentopia (which, unfortunately, will be dismantled toward the end of the week, as we're starting to find homes for them), and the other half by boxes. That whole moving thing is starting to get pretty real, and I'm so incredibly excited. And on top of that, I'm starting to get things together for our upcoming family vacation. Things are a bit more frenetic than usual, and it's manifesting as a mess in my room.
I've also started getting into painting. While I don't paint faithful representations of the fake daisies on our dining table, it is a lot of fun for me. I'm planning on painting and embroidering a bunch of stupid things and putting them on the walls of my room in the dorm.
And then, I did something crazy a couple of days ago: I sent a query letter to a literary agent. We'll see where that goes, if anywhere.
Finally, I've started speaking to some of my suitemates. It's weird to start thinking of them as real people I'll be living with for sixteen weeks, rather than blank entities I'll live with eventually, in the vaguely distant future. I don't mind it, actually. And at least one of them has a face, as far as I'm concerned.
Anyway, enough of that. How about some clothes and paintings? Yeah.

I want this in the kitchen. I hope my roommates aren't put off
by that.

Some of my things and an AWESOME present
from Dani.
Now that you've experienced my babbling and wild mess, go cast your eyes in the direction of the others!


  1. Oh I like the black and white with the pops of neon. I love finding cute things at Ross, its kinda like a treasure hunt and sometimes you find great things! :) The bag is super cute and it really goes great with the black and white dress. I think your painting are great, I like being creative when I have time and I'm not lazy. hehe


    1. Thanks! Ross is really hit or miss, but when you find something, it's really good. And I think I'm going to try working in "monochrome with pops of colour" as often as I can physically manage now! Haha.
      That hello picture is actually the first thing I've painted outside of my high school art class, so it's proof that as long as you've got some sort of freaky idea, you can totally put it on acrylic paper. Haha. And you do kind of have to set aside time to just sit down and make stuff, but it's so worth it in the end! :)

  2. the hello card is cute, and love your stripe dress! haha I just owned my first neon tank like last week :)

    1. Thanks! I'm so proud of it, actually, as it's the first thing I've painted in over five years. And I love this dress, it was such an amazing find!
