The best thing about spring

Saratoga starts to feel like a strange town in the past two weeks. It seems that all of a sudden, deserted streets are crowed with people, every cafe's outdoor sittings have a wait list, and if you have not spent any time sun bathing in Congress park after a quick stop at Ben & Jerry's, something is wrong with you ;)

My favorite part of spring, of course, has nothing to do with the booming of tourist season at Saratoga. It's the flowers that i love, actually, just tulips! The mere sight of it is powerful enough to melt my heart, it's definitely love at first sight ;)

Ok, since i'm terribly sick today and have about 4 papers and a final exam first thing in the morning, i'll not spend 2 hours drafting a blog entry. Hopefully no one else is as miserable as me right now...

After a week of hybernation, finally I dragged my tired Young soul to the sun. No time to waste, I have work to do. But before that, here are two vintage items that I found absolutely irresistable right now.

Oscar De La Renta silk scarf from the 80s. It's in good vintage condition, and super affordable at just $38!

I'm loving this purple wool cape from the 80s too! There's like a million ways to wear it come winter. But at $148, what should I do??

My Love for White Tee

Haven't slept all night for no reasons....Mock interview this afternoon, plus possible all night session with my mb 107 kids....and three papers that are behind schedule.....Sometimes I wonder if I subconsciously mess up life on purpose because i enjoy the pressure and thrill of getting back on track?

I just bought a simple casual white shirt yesterday, the kind that would look just right with good jeans and plaid wadges around Skid.....that made me think of ways to dress up basic tops since I'll have to do that soon once I get back to the city. And what is more basic than a white tee? Here's a few of my favorites, from early spring all the way to summer!

Some of my favorite finds on the web.....now only if i can take beautiful pictures like these

Girl vs. Wild

Cascade was absolutely beautiful, even on a cloudy and rainy day. This is really one of the easy ones among the high peaks, but the ice made it more challenging.

I needed this hike because I wanted to feel something. You know that feeling, when you finally get to the top of the mountain, the overwhelming strength and sense of accomplishment, just for a moment, we kiss goodbye to all worries in life.

Ok, I’m sounding a bit emo right now, which isn’t really me. But in a time like this, when a chapter of life is coming to an end, and there’s nothing concrete to look forward to in the immediate future, the passing of everyday is worthy of a mini-panic. I probably had three today ;)

When A Day Starts At 2 pm...

So I missed Finance for the 17th time this morning. Not to worry, there aren't many Fridays left when i can sleep till whenever and still have big mac for breakfast. Walked to town to pick up some sandwitch for Tomorrow's hike. Super excited about that! On the way back, Brad and I took a few random turns and end up going to the Brewery. Most beer were too bitter for my taste but blueberry was rediculously tasty. Today, blueberry bear is beautiful ;)

Now, some of my ammature photography

All Things that Make Me Happy

Lately, the phrase "i feel like i'm barely living" got way too much exposure. Does life really suck that much or do I just need some reminder of all the nice things in my life? So i opened this blog, mostly to remember all the things in life that make me happy, like art, good food and good wine, fashion, pretty photographs, and amazing people who will always be there for me.
H's card to cheer me up :)
