oh gosh, lets be glambitious YUM potato salad

from the title you can OBVIOUSLYYY guess what this post is about...right???
not so much

so (I know right! IT'S A VERY COMMON WORD) the other day (once I was talking to this girl and she was going on about this thing that happened to her the OTHER day, and I was like oh yeah, uhh and nodding my head intelligently, and then I found out that by the OTHER day she meant 8 WEEKS ago....but I mean literally the other day, as in 2 days ago) anyway...the other day I was at the shops and I walked past the shoe shop...and there was the coolest pair of Doc Martens EVER, I stopped in my tracks and screamed EH MAH GOSH (hence the title...very Massie Block in case you didn't know) and started jumping up and down...HERE THEY ARE

they are hello kitty inspired SQUEAL

I want them sooooo baaaad (SILENCE OF THE LAMBS...geddit)
but they were like $300, which I guess is the normal price of Docs even though I never had some...
But then my little brain kicked in and said 'now Caroline, do you REALLY want these shoes, I mean aren't the point of (REALLY EXPENSIVE) shoes to be able to go with everything you wear?'

I thought that was quite smart of my brain to think that, and though the Hello Kitty Docs are black, they are also pink and have bows (though I LOVEEE both of those things) and that made me think...'hmmm these are not the ONLY Docs out there...'
SO I WENT SURFING HURRAH not literally obviously...this generations surfing der and found some other lovely examples that I might consider splurging on...(and if you're really confused by now I can understand, see if two weeks after I buy these Docs I go 'EW I HATE pink, I HATE bows...(or even) I HATE hello kitty'...then I'm stuffed...so I'm going to expaaaaaand my horizons before I make a massive investment (wow I actually just said I was going to buy a pair of Docs EH MAH GAWD!!!) (yes, yes Miss Block we know) HURRAH

so here are the results of my searches...

Pros: Their a really pretty cotton candy pink...and they look kind of shiny, I also like the contrast of the chocolate coloured thread against the lighter shoe colour
Cons: What if I get sick of pink :(

Pros: These are kind of a twist on the classic black Doc...they're like a shiny, hazy gray mist kind of colour
Cons: Can the shine scratch off??

Pros: They are black with white flowers...and the toe is POINTY
Cons: The toe is pointy...will it scuff easier???

Cons: um...could they be too bright??

Pros: I LOVE the colour, and they look like buttery soft red leather...
Cons:ehhh I'm not sureee

hmmmm really tired now...WHO SHALL PROVAIL, WHO SHALL BE THE WINNERRRR (think Clash of the Titans)

Which one did you like best? Should I just go for a classic black? (BUT IT'S SO CLICHEEE)
Maybe this time (GLEE) I can save a tonne of money for 3 years or so and get TWO pairs...what to do, what to doooooooo
If I do get two, I can get a classic pair, and a CRAZY pair...me likey :)

well this was a very long post...close your eyes for a moment...BREATHE

a sock in the book

I can't begin to fathom how incredibly AWESOME the first part of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was...it was what Harry Potter should be...SPECTACULAR!!! See the thing I love about HP movies is that it's not entirely serious and morbid, but they include humour (mostly thanks to Rupert Grint) I also found myself loving a few of the things that they were wearing in the movie, especially the Deathly Hallows pendant from Mr.Lovegood. So I searched the lovely Etsy store and found a really cool replacement for it...though it doesn't do the cool twist thing that the pendant does in the movie...

(from ccppolly)
how cool is it??? I want it sooo bad... :D so I might as well post a couple of the things I want for Christmas that I found on the lovely etsy... :)

the unicorn ring is from kimarijewelry (I love her stuff) and the heart (WHICH IS TITANIC INSPIRED OMG) is from wildemoon...

anyway while I was watching Harry Potter I was thinking about how much the movies have changed throughout time...I mean the first ever Harry Potter movie came out on video tape (the horror) and now we have the choice of watching it in 3D!!! Kind of AMAZING, so I'm going to post a few pictures of HARRY POTTER THROUGH THE AAAGES (dun dun duuun)

sooo lovely...makes me want to cry OH THE MEMORIES
anywhoo, I hope you have all enjoyed watching HP7 aswell :)

btw: for great Christmas presents go on etsy and if your budget is tight (like mineee) click on the Lowest Price button! Happy Saturday!!!

sandy horses wearing lace

I'm feeling very hazy lazy kinda crazy....anyone else feel that way? No? HANDS UP?...sad
I went strawberry picking today...which is a shame really because I can't look at another strawberry ever again (hahhah are you kidding me?)
But anyway, being out in the field all day (for about 20 minutes) gave me a chance to reflect on life and Plato-ish things alike...like for example, don't pick strawberries on the same lane someone else is picking because you will take all the good berries and leave them with NOTHING (this thought started off philosophically and then it started to go gibberish, as do so many other things)
moving on

So recently I have found a really big liking for summer-sand-dessert-sun drenched type photos....they be so pretty
I don't know why this is, maybe because I like the idea of sitting on a sandy slope in a lacy white dress with the sun setting in the far distance...and white horses galloping joyfully (really? how low I have sunk (hahahahahah anyone else get the pun?)) mmmm that kind of romantic thinking calms me....


i think they all feel kind of drowsy, Sunday afternoon haze type thing....
except for the black and white one, where I was trying to portray a 50's beachy-I-know-what-you-did-last-summer-stalker vibe...I hope that came CLEARLY across
I hope you all have a spledifurous weekend ^_^

So super excited!!!!

Ok so on Halloween I entered this dress up competition with my friend Brooke, we entered it in this website, and now whats happening is that THE PUBLIC get to vote for the winning costume. Here is the link (omg)

You can watch the slideshow and vote for your favourite, I haven’t seen it yet because my school internet is stupid and won’t let me watch it until I get home (bleh) vote for the one you like the most (COUGH COUGH COUGH COUGH COUGH COUGH) :D
The voting thing for me is Caroline as Mockingjay (just in case!)


I also just wanted to share this lovely picture that I like to look at when it’s raining (even though I loveee the rain)
