kentucky derby ready

Follow my blog with bloglovin┬┤

to be honest, i’ve never even seen the kentucky derby. i just became fixated with it after i learned that the mint julep is one of my favorite drinks ever, which is also the official drink of the kentucky derby. they’re delicious. especially with crushed ice. the kind that you stuff in a sack and crush with a mallet until it’s like little shaved flecks. seriously. try it.

i am also turning into a hat person. you cannot and will not ever understand my excitement at finding this sweet vintage hat. and you probably shouldn’t. i don’t think that would be healthy. but for serious. i am already on my way to becoming one sweet eccentric old bag lady. i’m into it.

i’m pretty sure i’ll be taking photos of new ebay stuffs tomorrow, which is a very good idea because i’ve been spening like mad and i am but a poor college student, for reals!!! but i have to get up and get moving and do washing and ironing and fixing-up and getting ready first. ok, i’m almost up.

in other news, i am suddenly hankering for another hair cut. why is my favoritest stylist in the world so expensive? 70 dollars for a cut and that does not include tip! i will patiently wait and try to make a few bucks on ebay before i get crazy. anyways, i’ve got rent to think of. and i desperately need new glasses. oh expensive life!
