guilt

9 Jul

yes! ok! you got me! i’m guilty!

my guilt box is plenty full!

my guilt box is plenty full!

why, you ask?
well, because i just saw that my last post was in january!
shameful. hopeless. bad.
i know!
32465566i’m sorry. so so so sorry. if i were a dog, this is what i would look like right now

i am denver. denver is me.

i am denver. denver is me.

i will not let it happen again, i promise. you know what the worst part is? i’ve actually been photo-documenting everything noteworthy, so that i can blog about it.
without wanting to bore you about being uninspired, i’ll just blame life again. ha! yes, life has handed me quite a few cards- taken away some, and then dished out some more. so there, that’s why i haven’t been blogging. oh yeah, and the weather (the weather is always a great scapegoat). it has been so nice outside these past weeks, that i really barely use the computer. so there. mobile blogging? oh right, i have that too… ok well then here: my phone battery always runs out too fast! ha! ha! gotcha.

in case you don’t know who denver is, you need to watch this gem:

hiatus over

23 Oct

lovelies- my hiatus is done.

i promise.

this past month, i’ve been absent from the blogosphere because of… well, life actually.
i’ve had friends visiting, work keeping me busy and uninspired, general writer’s block, books i’ve been reading, and been hanging out with friends. all activities that had me invest my time, leaving no room for sitting at the computer.

don’t think that i haven’t been thinking of you though! oh no. i’ve been diligently taking pictures, baking and cooking, so that i can show you what i’ve been up to this past month.

stay tuned for the next posts, in the meantime, here’s a picture of yuki at dinner last night. he’s fancy like that.

loki and loki

2 Jul

loki the god of mischief would be incredibly proud to know that he shares his name with my cat loki.
we named her loki because she reminds us so much of what he represents… ironically, tom hiddleston is exactly the loki we had in mind- they even have the same eyes:

loki and loki

here are a few more examples of how my kitty looks like tom hiddleston’s loki:

see what i mean?
do your cats and dogs resemble any characters or people?
here are a couple more pictures of my loki- i mentioned in a previous post that she is half bengal half european short hair; notice how her ears, eyes, dots and face look a bit exotic, giving her the appearance of a little wildcat :)

*very inspiring blogger award*

27 Jun

hemingway and shakespeare, the two very entertaining kitties who author the blog twocatsviews, nominated me and my little blog for the very inspiring blogger award!
you can just about imagine how flattered, honored and happy i am about this award. that’s right, very!
the rules for this award are:

1.Display the award logo somewhere on the blog:


2. Link back to the blog of the person who nominated you:

thankyouthankyouthankyou hemingway and shakespeare, you awesome (fur)people! keep telling your tales on twocatsviews, i love to read what you get up to!

3. State seven random things about yourself:

– i started blogging as an anti- new year’s resolution. i challenged myself to pick up writing again- instead of attempting something new.

– apart from fashion, i love interior decorating.

– some day, i will have a horse, two dogs and three cats.

– i speak 5 1/2  languages.

– i could never date someone who doesn’t love animals.

– if i could choose a super power, it would be flying (without wings though, think along the lines of superman).

– i only started cooking and baking 2 years ago (real cooking, as in without using the microwave, and real baking, as in no ready- mixes).

ridiculously idyllic!

18 Jun

hello lovelies!

i’m writing you from quaint little eugendorf by salzburg! i know, i had no idea about this place either, and i’m not here by choice…
i was dragged here because of a convention at which my whole (work) team is presenting, and yours truly is freakin’ moderating the discussion!
we actually just finished our second round of rehearsals, and it’s not going too bad!

needless to say i wasn’t thrilled to be attending, but the surrounding environment is reaaaally making up for it! take a look at this freakishly sound-of-music idyllic view!

hotel gastagwirt is where we’re at- it’s so ridiculously cute and folksy and all-things-heidi that i seriously expect a little white goat to merrily saunter into the conference space.

there are about 10 golf greens in the area, horsebackriding opportunities, hiking and biking trails, and the food is amazing!
i have to get back to rehearsing now, but i just wanted to let you partake in my austrian-folk- extravaganza.

toodles!
ps: got confirmation from my brother that the internet at home is up and running!
