O HAI THUR



You see, I DO STILL EXIST! I said I'd get a memory card! And I did. 96783101002340256 years later. Also it is apparently too dark outside when I get home now to do outdoor shots! Must now bring tripod to work and do it during lunch, or continue with these really dark bedroom ones. We'll make that decision later.

So yeah, H&M happened. Oregon just got our first H&M yesterday, and it's in the Pioneer Place mall right here in Portland! It is three stories! It is INCREDIBLE. I peed my pants from the joy of it. I did. Pee everywhere. H&M YOU GUYS H&M I CAN'T EVEN. I WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO SAVE MY MONEY EVER AGAIN.









I'm wearing: H&M sweater, Target dress, Walgreens tights, Ross boots, Claire's earrings.


TURNS OUT, Walgreens has super high-quality, heavy duty tights for way cheap. This was a monumental discovery, as I tend to rip my tights about two seconds after putting them on, or even as I'm initially taking them out of their packaging. So to find some tights that stood up to my stretching and prodding at the store, and have lasted through the day (amazing) is quite the discovery! They don't really have the most exciting tights there, so I'm still going to Target for my patterned tights needs, but Walgreens is so where I'm going from now on when I need basic tights.

So I guess I'll update you all on what I've been doing lately in Megland, but it's really not that interesting. I've been working, and trolling the internet. No seriously I trolled omegle for a while but didn't get much response. I am Fail Troll. I've also been on tumblr obsessively, and if you're brave enough to click that link and visit mine, you'll see what I've been thinking about lately: Sherlock, Doctor Who (as per usual), Harry Potter, The Mighty Boosh, Top Gear, and various other British fandoms.

I'm reveling in my Anglophilia lately. I went to a traditional British fish & chips shop with a friend last night after ransacking H&M, and it was so great. They had all these imported sodas and condiments from Britain, and the decor was all London-y, and it was pretty much the best thing of my life, ever. If you're in the Portland area and you like English things, you should probably go to the Fish & Chip Shop on Killingsworth. You owe it to yourself.

SO WHO'S EXCITED FOR DEATHLY HALLOWS?

And lastly, my camera was being a complete cock and turning itself off every two seconds while doing my photo shoot (technology hates me lately), so I was all like:



CAMERA, Y U NO TAKE PICTURE?


And now my blog has become ridiculous.

I ordered 4 pairs of tights from Sock Dreams in the last 2 weeks *blush* tights addict!
And I am so so so excited for Deathly Hallows. Read all the books again. And had a movie marathon yesterday with my in-laws. Luckily my Mom-in-Law is also a Harry Potter fan :D

I'm so darn happy to see your face! My Meg withdrawls can now come to an end! :)

So I'm in love with this outfit. And VERY jealous of your three story H&M. I would have peed too.

Those boots are amazing! And I am now adding "Go to Walgreens" to my to-do list. Oh and that last picture just made my day, so cute!

So happy you're back!

YAY! We have an H&M, Meg! I'm waiting for the crowds to dissipate before I venture up there, though. I am so glad you're back! Thanks for the awesome facial expression, too!

so glad that you are back!! FINALLY you got a memory card hehe. I actually love these indoor shots and that sweater is making me weak in the knees! x

I had a very bad habit a few years ago of going to H&M every payday. I've calmed down since then, thankfully. I remember how exciting it was when it opened up here. It's seriously such a fun store to shop in. So, happy buying and restraint-practicing! :)

Awesome sweater! I have secret hopes that there are still some available next time I hit up H&M...

Nikki said...

Haha! Best post ever!!! I'm totally loving on this whole outfit..... but I completely ADORE that sweater. For serious. Sweater envy to the max.

I have no clue why H&M wont expand to more locations.... closest to me, I think is Chicago. Not that I'd ever expect one to pop up in my hometown.... but hey, closer than 2hrs would be great.

KVG said...

I was literally laughing out loud with this post.

That sweater is a marvel..H&M is a dangerous place, I myself know the inherent risks having one close by.

Yay! You're back!

SkellyBones said...

lmao! This post is awesome XD I'm a fail troll too DX Usually what happens is I'll be with friends of family and at some point I'll be all 'HIDE YO KIDS! HIDE YO WIFE!' and everyone will just stare dumbly at me :'D

I'm so excited for Deathly Hallows. I'm going to the midnight showing.
H&M is pretty awesome. I remember when we got one in Montreal and it was madness for a little while. I"m loving your sweater. It's a neat print.

Nice to see you back :)

Ahhh! I love that sweater! Is it from recent H&M? If so I will literally drive to the closet H&M, 45 minutes away, to buy that.
