i did the scariest thing today. i was riding my bike home and i took both hands off the handlebar to zip up my fleece. aaaaaah! maybe some of you are laughing at me but i am a big chicken when it comes to riding with no hands. it took me several tries, and about 1/4 mile of road.
anyways, that is just my excuse to blog about my bike:
fun fact: there are an estimated 12,000 bicycles on the stanford campus, and less than 15,000 students! (+ some professors who bike to work) last fall, i had no bike so i walked 2-3 miles per day back and forth from class... it sucked! then a family friend was kind enough to gift me an old bicycle. it was black and quite boring, so when spring came i tore off the stickers and started cutting leopard spots out of masking tape. add some yellow spray paint and an orange sharpie, and... voila!
i was reminded of this because of CrystalS's shirt! she also has a sweet leopard print blog layout going on right now. she's a really pretty, and sweet makeup artist and it was just her birthday yesterday (happy birthday crystal!) so go say happy birthday and check out her blog. n_n
anyways i really like leopard print and will be sad when it's no longer trendy and "in". (actually it probably already isn't and i just don't know, haha) here's some random leopard print stuff from around my room (stock photos ftw!)
clockwise: sunglasses case, ruffle top by express, makeup bag x2, faux fur jacket by express
i used to have this sweet rainbow leopard print fleece blanket (something like this), but i don't know where it went. what's your favorite print? plaid? zebra? polka? n_n
