The Stepford set...

Wednesday, August 21, 2013


Tout le monde, today, I want to discuss dreams... last night I was having a nightmare about a beauty pageant gone wrong, when Chuck Bass showed up and turned it into a dream.  I digress.  We all have life dreams.  It is likely that we had them when we were very very little and as we grew, our dreams morphed and twisted and by the time we were done with college and ready to attain them, we were way too bogged down in student loan debt that we  ended up with minimally paying jobs that bogged us down even more and grew satisfied with a life of boring, dull, gets-old-fast pub crawls and saying we'll "go out" and then end up eating Oreos and pizza and watching Netflix. 

I'm not hating... I do it too... I eat two Oreos a day (double stuf) and I even found a "This is my eating Oreos and pizza and watching Netflix shirt" that is definitely on my birthday list (which is coming up... in October... ehemmm... cough, cough). 

Where was I going with that?  Oh yes, dreams.  Since I studied in Paris in 2008, I have wanted to work in fashion and live in Europe.  Last year, I started : the daily savant : and love it (and all of you!) and since about a month ago, I live in Europe... 

... but the dream just isn't there yet!  I feel more like a Stepford wife than an international fashion star.  I still only know about 5 people in this whole entire country and spend my days vacuuming, cleaning, baking, crafting, reading, and yes, blogging.  In the states, I worked about 4 jobs at a time and was dying for some time to sleep, but I JUST CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE... and that is why I'm going to London on Sunday! 

I still only have about 10% of the wardrobe I had in the states, so I've been Pinteresting like crazy to come up with some rather ingenious new methods for mixing and matching the precious few pieces I still have!  In the meantime, maybe I'll dream of being Miroslava Duma... that should help... Oh yes, and here I am being a Stepford wife.  Just another day in the life... oops... got to take the brownies out of the oven!

    1. Ohlala... I lived in Paris years ago. I went back last spring and was supposed to go again in September, but now I'm not sure it is going to happen!

  11. Hahaha it sounds funny, but I know how it feels, even though I didn't move to Paris. I moved to the capital of my country 7 years ago and the only person I knew was my boyfriend. It was also the first time I had my own kitchen to experiment. So I basically did what you're doing now. Ate cookies, watched tv and cooked all the time. I don't even need to tell you how many kilos me and Marko put on :/ you don't wanna know. This sounds rather depressing what I'm telling you. But no. I didn't mean it like that. All I wanted to tell you is, it gets better, and if it doesn't, the world is large enough and you are already succesful so much that you can probably find a job in another country in 5 minutes. I believe in you :* Stay awesome! Kisses

    1. Haha! Thanks! I've always had monster ballerina calves! I got a Wii when I moved out here but couldn't find any of the dance and workout games I played at home... luckily my mum was bored with them, so she mailed them over and they just arrived and now I spend at least an hour each day dancing!

  16. You see girl, even in the middle of cooking and cleaning, you come up with this thing - running around in stilettos, being all fierce! Good things will come if you believe in them so keep believing in them <3

    1. I do what I can! Actually, it was something of a miracle I actually got dressed on this day. I knew I wouldn't be leaving the house and I hate to waste a good outfit on a blah sort of day!
