fall's almost done...

i have a bit of writing to do before bed so i won't say much, but can we just talk about this tree that i saw while out causing a ruckus last night?

in other news, november is one of those months of new beginnings that i'm kind of excited to say goodbye to, if only because december means london, christmas and new year's eve. so many things to look forward toooo....

"because when a door closes in hilary jane hughes' life..."

a real proper update is coming soon as LOTS has been going on, but in the meantime i'll leave you with this because it's a) true and b) ridiculous, as andrea can literally get me laughing my butt off at the drop of a hat for no reason at all.

[10:19] Hilary: omgggg london cant come soon enough
[10:19] Hilary: and i bet you feel the same way about the bahamas
[10:19] Andrea: i do, girl.
[10:20] Andrea: but i just want to reiterate
[10:20] Andrea: that i am really excited for you
[10:20] Andrea: and THIS
[10:20] Andrea: is why
[10:20] Andrea: i dont worry about you.
[10:20] Andrea: because when a door closes in hilary jane hughes' life
[10:20] Andrea: she smashes open six windows and pulls the fire alarm.
[10:21] Hilary: HAHAHAHAHA.

i'm so, so lucky to have such incredibly wonderful people in my life who don't get going when the going gets tough.

oh, also, i'm going to london in three weeks. prooobably should've mentioned that. as i said earlier, more later, i promise. Xx H

someone cut up my credit card plz.

soooo while taking a break at work today, i was browsing through etsy.

and i bought this:

i don't NEED a necklace made out of gorgeous, silk, vintage neck ties. i don't NEED to buy said necklace, especially since this would look ideal with vnecks [aka half my wardrobe] and men's undershirts [aka the other half.]

i will need, however, a fantastic accessory or few that packs a punch and will pack easy when i whip out the passport and cross the pond next month.

seriously. just cut up my credit card now. i'll love you forever and so will my savings account.

happy halloween! i was riveting (i hope.)

so, there you have it: i was rosie the riveter for halloween after i opted to scrap being a flapper for the second year in a row. [i do love my purple fringe-all-over dapper flapper dress, though.] i spent the night dancing around like a maniac with dear friends and the only casualty of the evening was my blackberry which went swimming around 3am but luckily my pal justin fished it out of the NASTY puddle it had landed in and it miraculously survived the submersion. dear blackberry: thank you for making waterproof phones, even if they're supposedly not waterproof. that thing rang COMPLETELY UNDERWATER and it lit up so we could find it. for that, i am grateful.

november's kicking off to a ridiculously busy start: in addition to the piles of transcripts/interviews i have to sift through, my mom's putting the finishing touches on building her dream house up in maine and we just took on a HUMONGOUS account at work so i'll be here 8-6 all week, pretty much. i'm taking a break to post these photos/muse for a bit to give my brain time to energize and look at stuff that isn't drafts/articles/google analytics/research research research. i promise i miss and love all of you and i'm sorry for being so absent lately. october was insanity; november will be better by default, i'm sure, but dressing up as a feminist icon was a nice way to end my month.

so is anyone else counting down to thanksgiving? because stuffing, mashed potatoes and apple pie would make me ridiculously happy right now...

xx h

ps: i've got some major reviews coming up. judy jetson hair, i'm comin' for you.
