Bringing Sexy Back

It's November! October, Halloween, this past weekend all flew by so quickly as midterms creeped and crawled all over the holiday spirit. I was sad that I couldn't find any last-minute costumes that weren't generic, skimpy, or generic and skimpy. St. Louis has also been diving into winter, with temperatures in the 50s or 60s every day. Too much exposed skin + frostbite = no good. Alas, that gives me a whole year to prepare for next year's costume though. I wonder how long I can get by with trick-or-treating before people realize I'm in college xD

This outfit I wore to the mall and Five Guys over a month ago (still updating from my backlog as you can see from the summer foliage). Wearing a mini-skirt and heels is not the best idea if you don't want to draw unwanted attention to yourself, as a guy yelled something at me while I walked past. Nothing wrong with a little sexy now and then, hmm? I fell in love with this top and the skirt together at H&M, a perfect deal since my friend liked the top is khaki. It was a buy one get one free offer, so we each landed ourselves new button-ups for $13 each yay! The skirt was a little costly at $25 but it matches many things and is great for layering over sweater tights.

This weekend I got caught up on my TV shows and watched Toy Story 3 for the first time. I'm in love with those kawaii edamame peas :D Pixar never fails to impress - I think if I had the skill and fortitude, working with them would be a dream job. Their attention to detail and universality is impeccable. I've also been playing Lara Croft: The Guardian of Light and Batman: Arkham Asylum with my boyfriend. Kicking butt after a long week of tracing nerve tracts through stacks of brain slices reminiscent of wrinkly pancakes = the best relaxation. That neuroscience exam on Friday was crazy to cram for - so much information! Luckily the class has picked up and finally become more interesting. Amazing that a course about the fascinating organ that controls your every single thought and action can lead to such comfortable desk-snoozing if the heat is turned up, a monotone drones on, and you start collecting drool in the corner of your mouth ...

In other exciting news, we tried out a little Japanese restaurant nearby this weekend. The weather was perfectly fall, bento box was sooo filling, and I had green tea ice cream for the first time in AGES. My boyfriend and I also adopted a cool little fish from our Neuroscience Lab, a Black Ghost Knife (Apteronotus albifrons). We call him/her "Fishy" - I know, creative right? The name sounds cute and we couldn't think of something awesome and gender-neutral. [Yes, I realize it was a terrible idea to juxtapose my fish with the sushi we had T__T.) It's a weakly electric fish, like a tamer version of an eel. Apparently we have to look at the waveform of their electric organ discharges to distinguish - oh-so-nerdy, and oh-so-cool. Watch the video to see how Fishy swims! (The scratching noise is my camera cable brushing against the counter) There's a fin running along the underside of its belly that propagates it through the water. Fishy likes to swim upside down, backwards, and squeeze into tiny crevices and caves haha. Revenge best served thawed? It eats bloodworms, aka mosquito larvae :D I knew those bloodsuckers would get their just-desserts someday! Last but not least, giant fluffy chicken at the manga/anime toy store! Hehe they're so cute and fluffy but very expensive. They had every single animal imaginable there.

I should definitely update on some cold-weather wear. I have a few outfits that I haven't shot yet - need to keep up or there will be an unwanted backlog of outfits since September haha. I will probably post once a day or every other day to get all these out of the way in time for scarves, knits, boots, cozy fun : ) I also have a lot of beauty posts that I haven't done since summer, so I should interject some of those every once in a while. Bing-bong! I'm announcing my *first giveaway* later this week, so stay tuned for deets on how to win some awesome prizes :D Have an amazing week, lovelies!

You do look sexy in that form fitting skirt and top. Nothing wrong with that sometimes. :-) The Japanese food looks great. I miss Japan! Fortunately, I'll fly back home at the end of this week and can finally get some good Japanese food again. That chicken is very cute :-) Looks like would make a nice floor pillow to lean back against while kicking your bf's butt at the games you mentioned :-)

You look so foxy, lady! I love how the shirt transforms from day-time student to night-time clubbing :P I just watched Toy Story 3 recently too, and hubby and I cracked up so hard over the vigilante monkey... such a good movie! I'm drooling over the green tea ice cream btw :)
