Let's Raid The Gift Shop

I came back from France a few days ago and am literally crying every single night right before going to bed because I am back in California and it will be a while until I return to Paris.. *sigh* First world problems. Can't a girl get some France in her life more often?!? I took around 700 photos, and 71 videos. Basically, I won't have any photos ready until this weekend because I am coming home at 5, eating for an hour, and knocking out. I wore this yesterday when I went to the Melrose Trading Post for the first time in over a month or two.. It was like a family reunion.. Ya know, between two people.. Because flea markets are people too.

This purple crochet cardigan is from Tunnel Vision, the best online vintage store on this planet owned by the best people on this planet. I purchased this cardigan with a $50 gift certificate I won on Jessica's (Vintage Virgin) blog a while ago. I waited and waited.. And finally, I saw something that I could not let pass me by. Is this cardigan perfect or is it poiiiiiiiiffffect?

The second photo is a picture my mom snapped of a squirrel that kept on throwing nuts at my head while we were taking these photos!!!! Look at its face! So evil! I love animals so much, even pigeons (I don't understand why everyone hates them, they're harmless!), but I was really pissed off. This squirrel was deliberately throwing nuts at me. One nut almost knocked my crown off.. Whatever. Life's tough. My mom warned me about all the obstacles I'd be faced with in life -- Just another plight.

Hi guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm in France right now with 18 other people currently! So far it has been AMAZING. So so fucking great. I can't even explain how incredible everything is.. The people are all so attractive. Like the men, women, and children, they're all so pretty looking! I have eaten a few sandwiches and tons of bread and cheese, heh. I don't have too much time right now, but I'm posting this right now right before I pass out since there's free wi-fi at this hotel we're staying at. Not sure If I'm going to be able to post as we're going to different hotels throughout the week because we're visiting towns all over France and not just Paris. Anyways, I took these photos in the states on my last day. I hope you're all having a wonderful week because I sure as hell I am. I've taken so many photos so far, so I'll have a lot of selecting work to do, but I'll be sure to post my favorite photos on here. Man, France is so great.. I want to stay here. I can actually communicate with people because I paid attention in French class my first two years of high school, ha. I guess what you learn in high school really can help you in the real world!
