stuck at home instead

…and i couldn’t be more pleased. although i was looking forward to the beach and the sand but i was sort of dreading the trip because i wanted to be at home this weekend. it’s been a while since i’ve been on my bed, just relaxing. one thing i would have missed on the trip though is the great photo possibilities! instead, i got to spend more time with my puppy ‘snickers’ and gave him his second walk out — he’s such a baby! our manicurist also came over and i had my nails painted neon pink..LOL. i bought several neon colors — green, yellow and orange just to welcome summer. it can’t be beat. with the el niño, summer is early and here to stay. 
i love coffee. i love its smell. and i especially love ‘peppermint mocha’ or dark cherry mocha’ from starbucks. but i cannot for the life of me consume a cup and not palpitate and stay awake all day. i got this from my mom. a single shot of caffeine causes my palms and feet to sweat (i know, yuck) and my heart to palpitate… but i was so sleepy on my shift last night that i had to down a small cup. the effect? slightly shaking hands and awake for almost 24 hours. it’s time to take the sketchpad and color pencils out — a gift from harry on v-day! warning: the images below are amateur sketches.

now you can open your eyes. LOL.

Follow vanilla ice cream

  1. Hey Gizelle 🙂

    ….those sandals are nice, you and these accessories are just adorable! I love the smell of coffee as well. it's comforting, makes me relax and creamy delicious. I don't like the smell of cold coffee….yes, I can smell cold coffee, weird but I just know. Those sketches are rad…..I like how the floral print was drawn in the skirt.


  2. awww i love the way that top drapes on you and you and snickers are absolutely adorable together. 🙂
    and i love that sketch! post more!

    and yay for international shipping now avaliable!!! 🙂


  3. Those sketches are lovely! It really looks like the pattern in the skirt is folded over upon itself~
    And thanks for the wonderful comment! 😀



  4. You're so adorable. I love the pattern of your shirt and turquoise is one of my favourite colours to wear, especially for jewelry (*noting your superb bangle*).

    I actually like the smell of coffee, though I've never really been attracted to the taste (exception for Ice Caps and coffee flavoured ice cream).

    And your sketch is adorable! I love how springlike it is!

    Thanks so much for stopping by!
