write it in ink

again, sweating tattoos.
espeically these handwritten ones.
i have one, but want another.
im just so indecisive, i blame it on my horoscope (libra!).

 carpe diem
 and all that could have been...
 go placidly amidst the noise and haste...
 hold on
this too shall pass

do you have tattoos?

ps- happy thanksgiving!!!

feeling feminine

i dont usually dress "girly," but this i think this outfit is exactly that. this skirt is one i scored at some random store here in israel for like 12 bucks and this top i fell in love with from forever 21. i would have never thought to pair the two together, but i think it works well....for a very feminine look. i tried toughening it up with black tights and black shoes from aldo. i also added an arm party & blazer to make it work (and weather!) appropriate.

what do you think?
a little music makes it more fun  :)

hope you are having a great week so far! happy tuesday!!!

would you rather?

joanna goddard's blog a cup of jo is a daily read for me. is it for you, as well? she is genuinely interested in her readers' opinions, thoughts, feelings and feedback and that tickles my fancy.

i am curious to get to know my readers' (if i even have readership :/ ) personalities as well, as i think a blog (or at least mine) is aimed at getting to know people and to connect people on a personal level. i have even begun penpalling with one lovely reader thanks to blogging!

i would be delighted to know, what's your name? where are you from? what do you do? and just for fun (since my blog is titled fly far), where would you most want to travel out of the following.
which would you rather? =)

1. africa
2. france
3. thailand
4. brazil
5. austrailia
photos via google & yahoo
please share!

although i would be overjoyed to go to all of the above, i am 99.9% sure my next trip will include thailand!

reminiscing is my remedy

been stuck at home sick for the past two days with a terrible sore throat and a throbbing head. the doc said it will take 2 days to get the results back from my throat swab. isn't that so 1990's? we're in the 21st century and it still takes 2 days to get results to know if i need to be on antibiotics or not? hmmm...

anyways, to brighten myself up ive been reminiscing about the trip boyfriend and i just got back from. here's the last batch of photos that i will post; these were taken on our 5-day getaway in cozumel, mexico. hope you enjoy!
