so please please please, let me get what I want

(Maggie Gyllenhal. I love her eyes in this photo. source: fffound)


A couple of things I ordered 2 weeks back possibly the day before my mid-term exam(sans a few more that I couldn't find pictures of). :D Yes, I was that focused. My number of online shopping purchases also seem to increase exponentially during any exam period. I ordered quite a bit at one go this time but couldn't help it. Even with shipping it each adds up to less than what I'd get the item for over here (on average) XD (hopefully i didn't calculate in blissful denial) Can't wait for them to arrive!

Went to the hairdresser today to get a much needed trim. I got my hair curled two months or so back but only a few people realized and asked about it. I have trouble maintaining the curls. Probably just due to the nature of my hair. Dry. Big. With a life of its own. Today I learnt the secret though which my dear hair dresser did not divulge the first time. Hair spritzer (or whachamacallit) that's necessary a couple times a week each time after I wash my hair. Why did he not tell me that before???
My dad's friend has been spending the past couple of months making his own gourmet ice cream at home. This one's Cherry flavoured with rum in it and the cherries are sooo juicy. I love how he's so generous with the cherries and how he's such good friends with my dad he gave us an entire tub for free. :)

Obviously, the Smiths are still in my head. :) (hint: song title)


  1. Dude! That ice cream looks so, so, so good. No..I am on a diet, I have been far too indulgent with yummy Spanish food.

    I'm confused by the Maggie picture, is that someone elses arm? You asked about my inspiration/blog titles..every single title is a song lyric from whatever song I am loving at the moment I blog. The latest is from an Iron and Wine song.

    Your hair looks so nice. My curls are natural and a pain in the arse also, curls are much work, but when they're taken care of (I think) they're so much fun). My curls definitely express my wacky personality, when I straighten my hair I feel..different...and if anyone dares to tell me I look better with straight hair...woah, mad Te. It is like they are saying I look better when I'm not my real self..does that make sense? Would you get offended if someone said you look better with curly hair?

    Of course I will send you a postcard, send me an email and let me know where to post it. I will then add your email address to the list of people who can see my old blog (I don't write in it anymore but it's set to private) if you want!

  2. I looked again and it is quite obviously someone else's arm, duh!

  3. Maggie Gyllenhal has the loveliest features. She's so beautiful.

    Your hair looks great curled like that. My pin-straight hair doesn't like to hold curls, but sometimes I just have to force it ;)

    Cute purchases. Online shopping can be quite fun. I have my eye on a few things here and there, but I have to wait a few more weeks until I *might* be able to justify some of the purchases.

  4. i totally know what you mean about the exponential relationship between exam shopping and stress levels. it's kinda nuts :P

    that ice-cream looks delish! i have to make do with ben & jerry's (unfortunately...?)

  5. aww cherry and RUMMMMM sounds so good right now!!!1 i loooove the smiths so this post makes me happy :D

    how are you always buying stuff online?!?!?! doesnt the shipping kill you!?

  6. Your hair looks so pretty :) & that icecream looks so delicious!

    Have you heard of ben and jerrys? x

  7. Good times for a change
    See the luck I've had
    Can make a good man
    Turn bad

    So Please Please Please, Let Me Get What I Want This Time.

    am i correct? or are you thinking of "to die by your side is a heavenly way to die"?

  8. I love maggie, she's so quirky and gorgeous. I love all the F21 items you ordered! Aaaand... that ice cream looks delicious xoxo

  12. i love your hair! i wish mine was big and unruly. mine kind of dies about an hour after i try to make it do anything but lie flat.

    i don't think maggie gyllenhaal is that pretty but at the same time i think she's freaking beautiful if that even makes sense. have you seen "secretary"? she's so smokin' in it!

  13. The Asian girl looks cute. What's her name? I think she's a model right?
