can't think of a semi-clever title now, sorry

Visited Brent at work (Vintage Berkeley, for any of you who want to stalk/buy wine from him) today with some Chipotle. We spent a very nice couple of days together with friends and family but the weekend's over and it's time to get back into our routines. I usually look like [insert expletive here] on Mondays and since I, umm, mentioned something about this being a "lifestyle" blog, I thought it would only be fitting that I show you guys what I really look like on a lazy day. Sorry about the terrible quality of the photos but I'm pretty sure I mentioned that my camera is broken and I won't be getting an slr until my birthday in two months, ugh. The focus is terrible now but it'll have to suffice for the time being. I also sneaked in a couple of pictures of Brent who cut his hair at Vidal Sassoon this past Thursday and looks adorable with it. Should I get a haircut? I've toyed with the idea of a drastic change since I'm so fickle about my appearance but I know I'd regret it like I did the last time I cut it before starting college. I've been growing my hair out for more than three years and it would seem like such a waste to give up on it now. It's tough being this indecisive.

Anyway, back to the boyfriend. What else is there to say? Oh, I remember: I'd been trying to get him to stop wearing his decrepit Varvatos for Converse sneakers for a while and he finally put on his old boots for me. I think my heart skipped a little when I saw him wearing them yesterday with a black Acne pullover sweater because it reminded me of having a gigantic crush on him when we were still friends at Berkeley. If you're reading this, Pika (which I know you are), please wear them more often! Speaking of Pika reading my blog, I get very flustered when he tries to look at it in front of me. Have any of you ever felt weird about the intersections between your internet and actual lives? I mean, I have friends whom I've met from the internet and have had conversations about blogs in real life, but I'm still a little weird about mentioning my blog to other friends. I suppose I shouldn't be so shy around Brent concerning these things since he is, of course, the one who's living with two friends he met while playing World of Warcraft... oh dear, I'll save that one for later. Let's just say that until now, I'd never dated anyone who loves the internet as much as I do and it's such a relief that I've found my perfect match.

packing

I don't mean to be one of those girls who talks incessantly about her boyfriend but come on, isn't he cute? It's very hard not to talk about someone this much when he's so integrated into my life and contributes to so much of my happiness. I mean, who else would surprise me with macarons on the third date or share my love for making strange noises and inventing weird nicknames? Oh my little 'chu, I luh you!

" I thought it would only be fitting that I show you guys what I really look like on a lazy day."

i just love this idea. the thing is, some people like me are really want to know what you bloggers REALLY wearing when in lesuire days... cause no one never feels lazy. maybe just curious. but i love you more when you did post like this. :)))

Olivia Liem said...

Hey gal, I'm so relieved to read this sweet post of yours. I was also a bit shy to talk so much about my boyfriend on blog..But u're right, since he has brought so much happiness to life, then why not talk about him..So, I'm not alone ^^

PS: Love ur lazy day look here..

PPS: agree, u got a cute boyfriend there gal ^^

Lindsey said...

I only get paranoid about people I don't like reading my stuff, which used to happen in the past a bit :[

I think it's cute he reads your blog, my boyfriend is internet retarded and has no interest in it haha.

Sophie said...

This is the sweetest post ever.

Hannah said...

I've been growing my hair out also for 2-ish years and I once again have the sudden urge to cut it quite short again. It is such a painfully decision though! So much time and patience spent for lovely locks to be chopped off in about a second!
I wonder if it's just because it's now summer or because I saw a short hairstyle I liked. I'm such a terribly fickle decision maker.

Jayrin Eve said...

ya'll sorta much :) and are so adorable together!

Missy said...

you look cute no matter what!

leila wylie said...

I feel the same way about talking about my blog. And yeah, your boy is adorable.

Jenny Cindy said...

I totally know how you feel about mentioning your blog to you friend or having it interfere with your real live. I was so embarrassed when my sister found out =P Although she did like it - it just felt so weird.

Anyhow, you and your boyfriend are defintiely one of the cutest couples ever! Everytime I come here and read about your boy I wonder if I'll ever find someone who is such a perfect match. >.<

Oh and you look great in your lazy day outfit - we all got those ;)

Q said...

Awww...you guys are the cutest geek-chic couple I've ever seen. Love, love, love this blog!

Tea For Two said...

Haha, even on lazy sundays you don't look anything other that gorgeous, missy, and yes, you've got the dashing boyfriend to match! (Don't cut your hair, keep growing it out with me!)

Luna : said...

haha you two look like you make a super sweet couple

MusaBenedetta said...

Gorgeous. I loved this post, all about your day. I like the new 'lifestyle' format of your blog more and more. Seeing into the daily lives of people is fascinating, and what might seem totally boring or insignificant to you, can actually be quite interesting to others. Keep up the good work!

Oh, and yes, your boyfriends hair and boots do indeed look fabulous!

auxpaysdesmerveilles said...

Don't worry, you always look adorable, even on a lazy day! I love reading about your boyfriend by the way, it's so cute to read how much the two of you are in love!

Laura Gerencser said...

So sweet!:):)

viv said...

nothing wrong with talking abt ur bf at all*its your blog after all*
70% of my conversations with frds r related to my bf=p
argh.i miss him nw*long distance relationship is difficult..

anyway*wish u 2 live happily every after!

Phyllis said...

i normally hate listening to cheesy, but you two are so freaking cute together!

heleen said...

I kind of like your long hair, so I'd say keep it like that!

And yesss it feels extremely awkward when someone at my school mentions an outfit I posted or a collection I raved about on my blog... It's often easier to write to strangers than to people you know in your real life.

fayeee said...

I feel strange about talking about my blog to other friends too, I think its one of them things that should be sepatate. Since the internet and the real world is every different
ahh i love your blog, im a new reader! I shall be following m'love
Hope you can read mine sometime

faye xx

phresh produce said...

I ADORE THE FACT THAT YOU TALK ABOUT HIM...ITS CUTE TO SEE YOUNG COUPLES IN LOVE....

jette said...

cutest post ever.

and keep your hair long! i've also been thinking whether or not i should cut my hair short again. but seriously...growing hair out takes some will power. :P

Sylvia said...

Aw, your boyfriend sounds adorable--go on, you can gush! I love the softness of these photos.

kate l. said...

you always look adorable!!

sam. said...

so cute!!

Thom said...

I know when you ask "isn't my boyfriend cute?" you're not really asking us...you're asking yourself, and in your head the answer is yes, but please! You must've said "isn't he cute?!?" like 5 times in this post lol! >_<

But to answer your question, I can see why gals like yourself go for these types of guys, but I prefer them a more rugged and scruffy (^_~)b

love your blog and how you write. keep it up, grrl.

hannah fresia said...

cute!
i love the simplicity of your ensemble.

Kallie said...

you look adorable and that wine looks fantastic! I know what you mean about talking about blogging with friends. As much as I want them to read it, I feel awkward saying anything.
ps-you and your boyfriend are adorable!

Christina Dee said...

whoa, I see your BF often on the bus I ride to work...which is right next to the wine shop...I work at the shop next door...how random is that?

Meredith said...

Trust me i definately know that awkward thing when people read your blog. Ive told my boyfriend about it and he wants to read it but i still think it would be weird haha
and okay how do you always look so cute i love your outfit!

Kristel said...

I think both of your outfits are adorable! I wish I could get my bf to wear skinnies like Pika.

Anonymous said...

You should make a Wufoo! :)

Neekoh said...

Haha, this entry made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. And I'm not really joking. Good boyfriends are hard to find, so please, gush away and enjoy the fact that you've found one who understands and supports you so much.
And re: intertwining real life vs. blog life - yes, I have a hard time doing that, too. My boy reads mine (I think) and a few select friends who I know get it, but I try to keep my real life friends separate from my little online world.

j said...

You are one of the luckiest girls alive (not to imply you don't deserve it, because you totally do). And not just in the bf department!

While I'm not as avid a blogger as you, it is weird when your personal life and blog life intersect. I'm still uncomfortable sharing my blog with my bf, let alone having him watch me take photos for it-- and he's the one asking to be there!

Lina said...

He looks too cute, I agree. And you're lucky to have found someone you fit so well together with!!

And it's nice to see that even some of the most stylish people have their lazy days too! :D

roxane said...

wow you guys are lucky to have found each other :)

Electro Geisha said...

it is wonderful to be in love, and to be in love so much. i get what you mean, and yes sometimes that kind of girls do tend to be very annoying but, i dont think youre one of them. i just got here, browsed a bit, and i liked you(r blog) - and i dont like boring girls that dont have anything to talk about except their BFs. you had me at your food posts :)

ador-abel said...

hello! this is one of your readers from singapore!

i get flustered too when my bf looks at my blog in front of me, so i totally understand how u feel. there's a difference between you and your internet persona, so i guess thats when we feel weird when they intersect.

oh. and i kept my hair super long, till my hips and i was very much indecisive about whether i should cut my precious locks off. but i did. and i do like the huge change, although not being able to tie up my hair when the weather is hot kinda makes me miss those long hair days.. love your cute style though. :)

rose said...

i know exactly what you mean. my bf doesn't know i have a blog. i havent even told much of anyone i know that i have a blog. i'm just waiting until he buys me a digital slr so that i can take better must-read worthy photos.

...and i'm camera shy so i dont want people looking at pictures of me and judging me.

Martha said...

I don't let my real life and blog come together. I don't know why but i like the anonymity you get with a blog.
Also where's your vest from?
<3

Margaret said...

whaaaaat! brent plays wow? what server is he on? /nerding out

white mice said...

yeah I cringe everytime my bf looks at mine too since he found out about it. It is weird.

You are both looking good!!!!!

Please don't cut your hair! (I smile everytime I look at your blog because we are hair twins).

samantha ezra. said...

the two of you are amazingly cute! and hell yeah, everytime someone mentions my blog or reads it i cringe and apologise for self-timered shots. so embarressing!

t.g.s said...

nawwwww
i love the way you talk about your bf
it's sooo cute and i absolutely adore his new haircut haha

and i get that feeling too
it's just so awkward when you know your friend is looking at your blog right behind your shoulder
ugh weird

gi. said...

totally adorable pictures :) 10 points for working at Vintage Berkeley!

moichanelcouture said...

Totally enjoyed this lovely post :) You two are such a cute match!
Blogs and real life just seem like two worlds sometimes. I nearly died as my bf found out. I was wondering myself why it felt so awkward. Ah well, still don't know haha.

Bianca said...

AAAAHHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAAHHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHH!! I was actually laughing so hard when you said your boyfriend is living with two people he met playing WoW. I went to a 21st last weekend and my guy friend thought my other guy friend looked familiar and asked if he played WoW and he did and this whole thing happened because all these guys there played it too and they were all like OMG it's blah blah blah (referring each other by their WoW names) lol anyway! You guys are heaps cute ;) How long have you guys been together?

Anonymous said...
