Blogtopia! It's so good to see you! Look how you've grown! Come here and let me pinch your face and slobber all over you, dahling, for I have returned.
That was me being a washed-up diva (possibly in a glitzy turban, stirring a martini with a diamond stirrer and picking bonbons out of a heart-shaped tray a la Joan Collins or Gloria Swanson in Sunset Boulevard, because I AM big, it's the blogs that got small ) and announcing my somewhat delayed return after a little hiatus where I was suffering from a) having lots of work to do, b) blowing off my work to go enjoy the end of the school year, and c) writer's block. I don't want to be the absent Deadbeat Dad of bloggers, but I can't help it at this time of year, I'm terribly afflicted with flakiness right about now (when aren't I?)
So to make it up to you...I'm going to do a totally random post about the things I like!
It was supposed to just be a post where I took pictures of my favorite cosmetics, but it degenerated into a big steamy-hot bubbling crock pot o'insanity. Hope you all enjoy!
These are my blue Seychelles shoes. I don't know if you can tell how lovely they are in the picture, but I absolutely adore them. I wore them to my graduation ceremony with a pretty pale-gray-and-navy Victorian-style dress (which sounds dull, but I think it looked pretty nice), and then because they were so comfy I stupidly thought I could walk through the park in them, shouldering a bookbag. My rationale was, if French women walk everywhere in heels and are drop-dead-gorgeous knockouts, why can't I? My rationale was proved to be very wrong, in the form of about sixty blisters.

This is my Benefit Realness Of Concealness concealer case. It is the single greatest cosmetic I own. I'm one of those girls who is very easily swayed by pretty things (you know that Greek myth- wait, was it Greek? Was it a myth? Oh I don't know, ask me later- about how the woman who was running the race and then the gods dropped golden apples in her path and she got distracted and lost? Hideously antifeminist and insulting, but I completely identify with her. They're GOLDEN APPLES. If nothing else, they'd probably make a nice chunk of change on eBay.), so naturally I am in mad passionate love with all Benefit cosmetics, as their packaging is so blatantly adorable that I find myself buying things I don't need, or even particularly want, just because it's so pretty. However, this concealer is not just attractive but functional- it works very, very well. And look at the ironic-cute polka dots! No, really, look. Are you looking?

This is the Regina Spektor CD my friend kindly lent me when I was whining about how high my iTunes bill is, so that I could transfer the songs onto my playlist. Needless to say, I am deliriously happy and considering nominating said friend for sainthood.

This is the rubber duck which lives in my bathroom. He wasn't so happy about posing for my blog, so in exchange I had to promise to stop singing in the shower. Apparently not even plastic toys enjoy my rendition of "Sexyback".

You can't really tell, but this is the cover of The Virgin Suicides, which I am currently reading and loving. I haven't seen the movie yet (something of an anomaly for me, reading a book without seeing the movie first...I'm really bad about that. I'm also a total spoiler whore, but ONLY WHEN I WANT TO HEAR THE SPOILERS AND SPECIFICALLY REQUEST/RESEARCH THEM. I missed the last episode of the second season of Grey's last year, back when it was still good, and when my friend told me what happened I cried and hit him for about six hours, which he just laughed at, and then gave him the silent treatment, which I do not recommend as a good method of showing your guy friends your fury because it doesn't work on them) but I will when I finish.

This is my Palladio rice paper, inherited(cough-stolen-from-her-makeup-bag-cough) from my aunt. I'm not sure it actually does anything, but I like it anyway. And it makes me look like less of a shiny oaf on my shiny-oaf days. By the way, if anybody has incredibly good vision and spies that the little geisha lady has half a mustache drawn on her- 'twasn't me, my friend drew it with a thin-line Sharpie once when I was in the shower, then got bored and didn't bother finishing. Nice.

This is my Smith's Rosebud Salve. Addictive. Pretty much the caffeine of lip balms in that respect. Also, it's not too glossy, which is good because I don't like lip gloss except for my sheer red Neutrogena stuff which makes my lips tingle. I used to practically cake lip gloss on, but now I think mostly I just looked like a sad girl with too much lip gloss on.

These are a container of Dean & Deluca "Springtime" cookies in interesting shapes which I am currently devouring. They were a party favor from my friend's swank end-of-the-year thing. They're kind of difficult to eat, but mmm. Icing and unrefined white flour and butter and sugar, oh my!

These are some cookies from the aforementioned container of cookies. Cute as the proverbial button, right? Small iced adorable things just make me happy. Especially when they're shaped like butterflies and daisies and tulips. I'm actually pretty easy to please. You know, just the simple things- some cute cookies, a bright summer's day, and lifelong omnipotence. The usual.
But really, don't you just want to smile at these cookies? How could you not, you cruel and soulless shrews? Sorry, I'm passionate about the things I love (especially the sugar-iced ones made in ovens).

This is my patterned scarf which I got from a vintage store in Cambridge for $5 some time ago. I love it. It has become my "mostly companion", as Eloise would say. Well, obviously not literally- it's not as if I go around whispering to my scarf like a crazy scarf lady. Are there crazy scarf ladies? Surely there must be. Are they like cat ladies, but with scarves? Anyway, what I meant was that in the terms of wearing-it-constantly (usually as a belt or headband or tied to my bag, not as wrist-bow, but I needed a way to display it for all its glory), it is faithfully by my side. Also, you have no idea how often a silk scarf comes in handy, for anything from holding together the fragmented pieces of a broken-strapped bag or instantly belting a fug shapeless top.

This is the best eyeliner in the whole world (Benefit, naturally). Eye makeup can be tricky- what's that little ditty our mothers and grandmothers used to recite to us and sew into samplers? "If you wear too much of it, you will look like a bowling-alley prostitute and never find love." Ah, wise words indeed. But in all seriousness, this stuff is the perfect balance between being a cosmetic-free little Quaker girl (do Quakers wear makeup? Maybe they do, I don't know. I was just thinking of them as very fresh-faced and pure, but I could be wrong, maybe underneath it all they're wild lascivious succubi or something) and propositioning sailors. Also, it doesn't give you what my friend and I have termed ACS (Alice Cooper Syndrome)-i.e. it doesn't make you look like you were just taken to a goth makeup artist who did your eyes and then punched you.
This is my Franz Kafka button, which I got at the Kafka Museum. He doesn't look so happy to be making a guest appearance on this blog, does he? Why so sad, Kafka?
This is...well, it's undefinable. They are shoes. They are definitely shoes. And before you start, I WOULD NEVER WEAR THEM OUTSIDE. Not even on Halloween, because I generally don't like being mistaken for a lady of the night (that's a polite term for "giant hooker", by the way), and also, geez. Those heels are no joke, and let me just say if that's what strippers have to contend with, it's possible that society might be a little bit too hard on them. But aren't they hilarious and awesome? They were actually gifted to my mother as a joke present, but I loved them so much I gave them a home on display in my bedroom. And in case you were wondering, yes, those are tiny goldfish down there in the heels. You're speechless, right? Because I kind of am every time I look at them.

This is my Clinique gel blush. I already talked about my little lip-gloss-is-Satan-spelled-backwards breakthrough, but after that happened I realized I couldn't just go around bare-lipped- I am not gifted with the ability to look great without makeup (I don't like to slather my face in paint, it makes me feel itchy and prostitute-like, and to quote my friend Matt when I asked him this past summer about the subject of girls wearing a lot of makeup- "It's really freaky when you touch a girl's face and you come away with half of her cheek." Well said. Kind of gross, but also poetic, I think- but I am not about to pull a "Ooh, yes, I just roll out of bed and take the cucumber slices off my eyes and go about my day, all the while stopping to spoon-feed broth to orphans and let the homeless bask in my glow of natural beauty" thing. ) . This stuff gives me, the palest girl of all the pale girls in Pale City, a nice cheek-and-lip color, sort of Renaissance-y and pretty.
This is my chunky silver vintage cuff, which makes me feel kind of bad-ass and Wonder-Woman-esque at the same time.
This is my Metrocard. Oh, the places I'll go with my little slice of metropolis. Uptown, downtown, the city is mine! Until I need to renew it. Or lose it, which, to be honest, could happen at any moment now.

This is my Las Vegas key chain, which is not only resplendently tacky but also practical- it doubles as a pen! Hey, I never pretended to have taste. It could be worse. At least it's not neon. Oh God, I wish it were neon. Maybe the letters could blink on and off...Dare to dream.

THE MUSIC & TV CORNER- Hear that sound? That's me hopping on the bandwagon re. Amy Winehouse. I used to sort of dislike her, and think she looked like the slutty waitress in a Greek restaurant, but I am thoroughly addicted to her now. Rehab and You Know I'm No Good are great, but I think my favorite is Pumps, a sarcastic ode to skanky footballers' wife-wannabes which makes me laugh and dance a little bit in my seat when nobody is looking. It's not available on iTunes, though, most likely because of all the F-bombs she drops. Stupid censorship. The Man is at work again. TV-wise, everything is gone, gone, goooone...Lost, 30 Rock, Scrubs, ANTM, Ugly Betty, my soooooul...only joking, it's not like I'm THAT obsessed with TV. Probably. Hush. Anyway, I guess I'll give this miniseries with Debra Mess (too easy? Meh, still fun) a try. Le sigh. Hurry back, television of yore. I'll miss you over the summer, but probably not that much, because it's SUMMER! Still, though.

SIGHTINGS- Ooh, this girl outside my school was wearing the most fantastic white really soft-looking cotton sundress with mint green shiny wedge heels, which might be a bit Summer 2006 but are still pretty cute in my opinion, and...this is the only part of the outfit I didn't like- a lime-and-pink, clearly J.Crew ultra-preppy headband. Oye. But other than that it was so cute. And I am suddenly finding myself to be in love with this guy who attends my gym. And I might sort of be stalking him. Well, I've been noticing that our workouts overlap a lot lately, and let's just say it's maybe not a coincidence. I've only seen him twice though, but I made a point of coming back the second time the exact same time I was there when I first saw him, and there he was in a red T-shirt over washboard abs and a pair of board shorts that were surprisingly tolerable (usually I hate when guys in NYC wear board shorts, it looks pathetic), doing that thing where you press the thing with your leg or lift the thing with your muscle (I don't know gym terminology. So sue me.) Oh, and why are old ladies so unwittingly stylish? An elderly woman on my block was wearing fantastic round-toe pumps that I coveted. Unfortunately, though, she paired them with support hose and a scowl. Yes, I am jealous of old peoples' footwear. WHAT?

CURRENT ATTIRE- Oh my God, my feet have been through hell lately, I've been walking in heels, dancing a lot at assorted end-of-year-parties, and going to the gym both to tone up and hopefully see Hot Gym Dude. So since I'm on virtual house arrest this long weekend for a final exams-review session, I'm using the opportunity for foot therapy. My monkey socks are not coming off ALL WEEKEND. I'm wearing those, a pair of baby blue shorts which I am pretty sure are the dreaded Soffes I used to wear obsessively before I realized I was not in fact a gymnast or a perky cheerleader and had no need for athletic baby-shorts (I think that was around the same time I was slathering myself in Ultra-Sexy Shine On Glossy-Rave Party Girl Glossage, or whatever my tweenybopper Wet&Wild lip gloss was called). Still, they're comfortable, and with them I'm wearing a T-shirt that my crafty and remarkably leftist friend Katie made for me for my birthday reading simply "BUSHISMS" and then has three Bushisms written on it- "Make no mistake about it, I understand how tough it is, sir. I talk to families who die.", "Those who enter the country illegally violate the law.", and "People say, how can I help on this war against terror? How can I fight evil? You can do so by mentoring a child; by going into a shut-in's house and say I love you." It is, I must say, a fairly perfect and amusing shirt, and almost as much of a conversation piece as my hooker heels with the goldfish, which live on top of my magazine box and are commented on by nearly everyone who enters my bedroom. Anyway, I'm also wearing my silky patterned scarf as a headband, and oh my God I just realized how skanky my hair is. Off I go to shower off the day's injustices!

Peace <3

Ooh, am I first?!
So. You have stripper shoes. I have stripper shoes!
Yes proper stripper shoes bought from a proper stippind emporuim. So far I have refused to try them out on my husband and, as yet, I'm too scared to wear them out of the house. But believe me I will. One day probably = when lucite is over though. And I want a rubber duck.
That's all. Oh - and this was another amazing post! Thank you.

Er my spelling today is terrible (as is my proof-reading). I meant 'a proper stripper emporium'. Soz.

-ciao bella- said...

sarissa said...

i am, once again, shaken to the core by the similarity between your musings and mine, i too am alikened tot he golden-apple lady, am a complete Benefit OBSESSIVE (even if it weren't some good shit, it wouldn't matter because its so PRETTY) .. glad to have ya back, particularly when shaking your goldfish-platforms at us all, lol, i always wanted sopme (they arent REAL fish, right)- i saw some in the Simpsons once a few years ago and fell in love! although i probably WOULD wear them out! i am also bumming rosebud salve, love regina spektor TO THE MAX and should probably now having read that, read the vrgin suicides... the cookies made me smile, i love the scarf (gosh i'm so eloquent today, i say 'love' too much).. basically, great post, inspiring to take photograhs of one's belongings anyway, although i'll never get round to doing something like that. i am obsessed with tv tambien, finales are drawing near and what can i say? there's a big bottle of white spirit in a kitchen cupboard that looks more and more appealing... just kidding.

love it, sarissa x (by the way, you talk about your graduation, how old are you? are you at college? sorry, these questions bombard you as if i'm some sort of freshy penpal girl but i'm honestly not, just boundary-breakingly curious.. tbh i feel very young in the blog world and i just felt like asking)

jayne said...

yay you're back :) the grad dress sounds so cute, i have a friend who is actually forced to wear a white dress that goes past her knees to graduation and the guys have to wear white linen pants and blue dress jackets...ugg, stupid old money prep schools!

cookies look so yummy....i wish we had bakeries in MN!

i read the virgin suicides, it wasn't my favorite, it's just so strange, and fascinating, but i wasn't as fascinated by all of it as some people are. the movie is good though, it's a very close retelling of the book, which could be rather difficult to do, but hey it's sofia coppola and she's amazing so...let me know what you think of the movie.

La Principessa said...

I'm liking the blue nail polish. Where do you find bright colors that aren't full of reflective particles or strange iridescence?

I also like the Kafka buttton. ::turns into a bug::

hellocello said...

holy crap. the "bushisms" are hilarious. LOL

alexgirl said...

Emma, you are brilliant and amazing as usual.
Virgin Suicides is one of my all time favorite books. His other book, Middlesex, is really good too. (but I hate buying books with the movie poster on the cover. it makes me feel like a sell out or something).
And Rosebud Salve. Good call. I can't live without that stuff.
And Regina Spektor=amazing.
I'm glad you are on the Amy Winehouse bandwagon because she's freaking RAD too.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Bushisms (in a "that's really deppressing" kind of way.)
Wait, so did u graduate from high school? If so, CONGRATS. If not, nevermind.

maya said...

I AM OBSESSED WITH BENEFIT REALNESS OF CONCEALNESS!
i'm not even joking, im actually completely obsessed!
I swear, you actually are my twin. I know we've said that alot but I actually think we were separated at birth.
I love the virgin suicides too. I love Regina Spektor. I love hooker shoes. I stalk random boys that I see. I mean, what....nooo
But seriously I do.

Touche19 said...

uhmmm
THANK SWEET JEBUS, YOU POSTED AGAIN.

I've never actually tried benefit cosmetics, but now I'm more than tempted to haul my cookies off to the nearest Sephora.

And I love the blue shoes you wore to your graduation ceremony/party. I bet you looked a-maze-ing and everyone was jealous.

I want to live in New York and have a cool Metro Card and be awesomely stylish and witty!!!!

I think it's about time we take the parent-trap-story to heart and actually switch places.

Teresa said...

Hooka shoes with goldfish, lmao

the lipstick lady said...

ooooh emma we ARE best friends. just in a myspace way like when you add your favourite celebrities myspace that actually has been made by some 30-something year old loser who couldn't get enough friends on his own myspace so decided to make nicole richie's instead.
although I dont think nicole richie is your favourite celebrity. and if she is then.... I dont think we can be best friends anymore.
but seriously, I think if you and I lived in the same city or.... the same half of the world, then we would be best friends. and we'd go to starbucks every morning and blow all our money on whatever hard-as-a-rock cookie they're selling there as well just to make the hot coffee making guy think that we're so into his job and then make eyes at him from across the cafe, only to be shot down when his model girlfriend smothers him in kisses and kind of stirrs around her skinny latte and pretends to eat.

but ANYWAY, I cant help noticing, emma, that you are taking pictures of cookies in your... bathroom? I see a shower head behind those tantalising cookies... oh man, I keep forgetting I'm trying to fit into my bikini this year.

have you graduated from school, for like (I'm s sorry for that 'like' there. I really feel that it was necessary. I have to stop saying like otherwise I'll end up like this girl in my class at school who, if you divided the words she said per day into percentages, would have about 50% being 'like'. instead of saying 'I have such a good mascara it makes your eyelashes basically explode out of the sides of your ears' she would say 'I like, have such a like, amazing mascara that like makes like your LIKE LIKE LIKE LIKE LIKE LIKE LIKE'. sorry, what was I saying?) ah yes, have you greaduated from school for like ever? I dont really understand the american school system, especially high school. you've got... juniors and then freshmen or something, and then sophmores and seniors???? we just have year 10, 11, 12 and 13. I like it better with numbers

um, can I have those shoes? I think I might sleep again at night if I had those shoes. Not to guilt-trip you into giving them to me or anything...

the lipstick lady said...

hey! my comment was longer than sarrisa's. That's gotta count for something, eh?
oh dear, I'm off to go see Othello in the globe in the POURING RAIN and it's an open top theatre. But it's shakespeare. Ah, the things I do to pretentiously quote famous playwrites

The Stiletto Effect said...

Love this post :) I always like to read about people's favourite stuff :D
The duck is a cutie (glad he posed), the scarf is beautiful (i love scarfs).
I've seen the "Virgin Suicides" movie, but normally I prefer books to movies.
Ahhhh love your blue nailpolish ;)
Thank you for posting on my blog and for the compliments, you're a sweetheart :)

Why are all the things in the pictures backwards? I dunno if I'm the only one that noticed that.

Those shoes are absolutely adorable. I WISH I had some sort of fashion gene. Honestly.

Blue Floppy Hat said...

I had what I didn't know were stripper shoes when I was about thirteen..my mum bought them for me because they were all clear plastic, without thinking of the connotations (no one really did get them- I didn't know what they were till I was about fifteen). I haven't been able to look a clear plastic shoe in the face since.
I wish I had a relationship with cosmetics. I loved my Stila lip gloss to bits three years ago, but somehow didn't bother buying a new tube after I was done with mine- it tasted like chocolate.
I'm not going to start on the subject of The Virgin Suicides here. It'd border on Eugenides/Coppola fangirlishness, and that'd be a waste of comment space.

kf said...

those shoes are absolutely fantastic and if i ever run into you/we go out somewhere together, you HAVE to wear them.

no questions.

stilettoheights said...

Virgin Suicides is a wonderful book, I read it so many years ago right when it came out and I just fell in love with it, I saw the movie and it is great too, but the book is pure magic.

CountryGirl_CityLife said...

holy shit, I am hung up on the stripper shoes. You MUST where them with skinny jeans, yes. hookers and hookahs are in, bb. I also live by rice paper and virgin suicides, which only makes me heart your blog more. I must go prepare a dirty martini and spread on some minty julepy face mask now and requisite eye pillows. It takes awhile to look manhattan gorgeous.

Bergdorf Girl said...

hey! great post.

you are endlessly amusing. def LOVE to swap links...I've been away so rather deficient with the blog...but will add you today!

Regina Spektor always makes me happy.

Dilemma said...

idk, I do like Cory and all but lately she has been annoying me [hence the comment about smelling like feet]. But last time I did that post where I said she was wearing adult diapers, I kid you not, I got TWO angry emails from CKL ~luvahs~.
Scary, but true.

Brian Mandabach said...

Those shoes rule.

the lipstick lady said...

am i weird for absolutely despising crunchies?? i mean, I guess it basically the same as eating candy floss because it's pretty much 100% sugar and maybe a few additives, but some how candy floss (or cotton candy. I prefer saying candy floss on it's own, but when I'm at a fun fair or something I like saying cotton candy cart because i just looove alliteration. i would say sorry for being a freak but you already know that I'm automatically sorry at the beginning of every comment for whatever rubbish spews out of my mouth at that moment in time), and WY IS THERE A WEIRD MAN IN MY HOUSE.
UURGH
i was going to make a nice big breakfast brulee (i can give you the recipe if you like porridge, otherwise i wouldn't risk trying it) but instead ijust had to gab a couple of pains aux chocolats and neurotically check my blog for comments, but i like eating chocolate filled pastry and getting comments so I suppose it's fine.
anyway... what was I saying? I can't remember.
BREAKFAST BRULEE, yes, just holla at your boy (me) if you want an amazing comfort food breakfast. It will change your life.

molly said...

those cookies are making me sooo hungry

blushing apples said...

cannot believe you own those stripper heels! i can see them for display purposes only...

Mash said...

I think , no well I'm sure you will love the Virgin Suicides movie. I love Benefit for their fabulous packaging , that makes me want to buy everything because it's so cute and I also love Regina Rpektor and Amy Winehouse (specially f* me pumps like you). great post !

Money Miss said...

Eritia said...

haha thank you! I adore your blog.. I've mentioned that before, right?

missx said...

I will offer you five cents for those goldfish heels. The only reason why I would offer so little is because I know you would never sell them, they are freaking priceless.

ashley heaton said...

thanks! i want the clothes from the show too but sadly
most aren't for sale :(

those seychelles shoes are adorable. and on a sidenote, i'm totally into the washed-up diva look right now, i'm telling to turbans and ginormous diamonds are going to be so in this season, lol.

Model Citzen said...

I always wanted a pair of those shoes. And now that we're double linked we're BFF

Meg said...

You have hooker heels! Oh Emma, how I love thee. Do you live with your parents? Or even go to college? I am so confused about your status in life.
