Outfit: Christmas

shirt: Goodwill, dress: H&M, leggings: Forever 21, shoes: thrifted, tie: Flapper Girl

I wore this outfit for Christmas this year. I really love this dress, because the pattern reminds me of a Christmas tree. Sadly, after washing it once, it's now nearly shirt-length. Sigh. I seem to always have that problem with H&M's clothes.

It's really hard to believe that it will be 2013 in a couple days. This year sped by pretty fast!  I have the new years eve off this year, for the first time in a few years, so I'm really looking forward to ringing in the new year with some of my lovely friends!
Our rat, Volta joined me for a picture. She's the sweetest little rat ever. She even looked right at the camera!

Merry Christmas!

I hope everyone has had an absolutely wonderful Christmas! I've been spending time with my little sister and my boyfriend's family. This, of course, includes devouring lots of delicious food, candy, and drinks. I've also spent lots of time playing with the best present everrrr, a Kindle Fire from my mum and dad. I'm pretty impressed with how much it can do. Wi-fi, games, apps, videos...It's basically a tablet! I loves it.

Zoo Lights

Hey guys! Sorry I haven't been around these parts much lately. This month, it feels like I'm getting pulled in twenty different directions at once. Between work, my etsy shop, custom orders, and social engagements, I have myself spread pretty thin right now. One bit of exciting news: I bought my domain, so is all mine! heyzombot.blogspot will still redirect here, so you shouldn't need to change your bookmarks or subscriptions or anything like that. It is taking a bit of time to get my comments imported though, so if you notice any issues with commenting, that's why!

On a cold rainy night last week, my friend Steph and I headed to Zoo Lights. It's something that the Portland Zoo puts on every year. They put up tons and tons of gorgeous light displays, and there's a special train that goes through the entire Zoo. It was crazy busy the night we went, so we ended up waiting in line in the rain for a couple hours. It's a bit weird being at the Zoo when all the animals are put away, and just looking at animals made of multicolor lights. They were so pretty though! Check it out.

Outfit: fuzzy flowers

dress: H&M     fuzzy sweater: Arizona   shoes: thrifted   brooch: my shop

That sweater is just as soft and cuddly and fuzzy as it looks. I would be totally happy if every article of clothing I owned was made out of this fabric. I'm a very tactile person. I like fabrics that feel good, like silk or fur. I love fuzzy blankets, fuzzy pillows, fuzzy everything. I genuinely think that the "furry walls" from the movie Get Him to the Greek is one of the best ideas ever.

November in Review

I can't believe we're a week into December right now! I feel like once December hits, it's just non-stop busy chaos until after the new year starts. I just finished up with finals and school this week, so it will be nice not having to worry about schoolwork for the next couple weeks.
