hila tagged me in her seven facts post. i kind of love these things and have never done one… so decided to play along. i’m not going to tag anyone – but if you like this and end up doing one yourself, please leave the link in the comments!
pictures that induce happiness and somehow manage to distract from the realities of real life.
ps: have you called your mom & dad lately? do it now.
been wanting to watch seinfeld lately. everything about this picture = the nineties to me. especially elaine’s backpack and the way her jersey is tied around her waist.
as a tween / teen in south africa, growing up without the internet / blogs / tumblr meant gaining inspiration from sources you physically had to get your hands on. we used to peruse the paperweight shop and buy outdated issues of foreign magazines by the bag full. and then what would we do with all those mags? we’d cut them up and make collages in our school diaries. hell yes! i never wrote down a single task in my diary at school, it was all full of CK one ads (thanks kate moss). once my parents friends came to visit from america and some allure magazines got passed onto me – with actual perfume samples. my diary smelled great that year.
1. reliving hip hop from days gone by – de la soul (pictured), the fugees, lauryn hill, a tribe called quest, notorious b.i.g, beastie boys, jungle brothers, dead prez … will smith and dj jazzy jeff (!) hell, even black eyed peas before fergie & elephunk. the stuff i jammed to in high school / uni. i have to admit i am not a hip hop aficionado, something that perhaps should be remedied.
