Back to School

School starts in about a month and besides some notebooks and pens and pencils I'm in need of a few more things. Namely, rain/snow boots and a book bag. (also a lappy, but that's not gonna happen).
I've picked out a few choice bags and boots that I'd love the have. The boots are from j.crew or madewell and even though I could get some kind of a discount I feel like rain boots should be cheaper. but I still love these ones.
below are the Aigle Short-shaft Rubber Boots.

Next are the Isle Jacobsen short rain boots
And now for some bags that I wish I could afford. This first bag is from the crew as well but unfortunately I'm unable to get the discount. it's still not terribly expenso but it's hard for me to buy from there without the discount. It's the Fjallraven Classic Kanken Backpack.
And now for a bit of a repeat, but I STILL haven't stopped drooling over this bag. and once again, if you wish to surprise me with it you can buy it for me here. And I have switched back to wanting the larger size. It is of course the Longchamp Le Pliage Tote in Billberry.

Today i decided to use the "next blog" button at the top of the blogger site. my first observation: there are a LOT of bollywood/indian movie blogs out there. really, i was shocked to find that in an hour of blog surfing probably 75% of the blogs that popped up were themed this way. my other observation is that i'm more prone to seriously browse a blog if it's design is more simple. a lot of blogs had a really intense design, with black backgrounds and gray or lightly colored text which i could hardly read. as soon as i saw one of these blogs i immediately hit "next blog" again.

all in all it was an interesting hour spent blog surfing. i was surprised by what i found, and have discovered two new sites that i will be checking: (designer consignment online. still fairly expensive but i saw a few affordable items), and it was one of the better bollywood/indian movie blogs. it seemed to be mostly a blog about old bollywood actors/actresses. i found it to be interesting. i think that bollywood movies are great, they have great moments where the characters burst into song and i also find that the whole bollywood industry is very interesting.

you learn something new everyday.

Today i learned that i need to be better at cleaning out my water bottle and not using it for juice. another thing i learned today, crunch bars aren't very good and sometimes, even if you really think you need chocolate, you can wait for something better.
