Operation: Rainy Day Smoothie

It's pretty dreary out today, so I decided to brighten up the kitchen with some colorful fruits and make myself a rainy day smoothie. This one consisted of banana, strawberries and blueberries.

Slowly stocking up the dollhouse.

Treating Myself

After stopping by Border's to get my magazine fix in (if I bought or subscribed to every magazine I looked at, I'd be dirt poor), I headed to The Cosmetic Market next door. I had read about this yummy soap by the brand Fresh in another blog and when I saw it in the Market, I immediately picked some up. I hope it lives up to the blogger's praise. I think it will though, because its fragrance had already filled the car by the time I got home. Here's a link to the one I bought. I picked up an eyebrow definer pencil thing, as well. I have a kind of strawberry blonde shade of hair and during the warmer months when I spend lots of time outside, my eyebrows get so light they almost disappear. 
(P.S. Look at this packaging. Gorgeous!)

Doughnuts, Anyone?

Not that I need to be adding any more sweets to the dollhouse...

There is an old abandoned school about 20 minutes from where I live and I've always wanted to go shoot some pictures of the poor thing. It's not that sad of story though; the school was just moved into a nicer, newer building a few minutes away. It's not like it became abandoned because the city didn't have enough money or children to keep it running. It is a little creepy though, and every time I looked up into a window, I expected to see some ghost child staring back at me. (I'm terrible with scary things; I've never even seen a scary movie. It's more the ghost and paranormal things than the blood and guts stuff. I started to watch The Messengers one night, but embarrassingly had to turn it off practically right after the opening scene...)

Anyways, I managed to take some pretty interesting photos with a new film camera I bought. I'm still trying to figure it out, but I feel like the fact that it was film kind of added to the old, abandoned feeling of the pictures. (Let me know if you see any strange shadowy figures...)

Weekend Recap

I hope all of you followers had a lovely holiday weekend. I know I did! The fourth was actually kind of rainy here, but the neighbors still managed to light up the sky:
Sunday consisted of insanly long, but equally exciting Wimbledon tennis matches and cutting/folding new printies for the dollhouse:

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

Since my previous dollhouse post was so popular, I decided to show another new addition to the house. The bathroom now has a mirror! Hurray! When I purchased the mirror, it was an unattractive goldish, brown color that completely clashed with the rest of the room. So, I spruced it up with some white paint and up it went.
