candy colours

Photobucket

Last week I posted about my adventures with the Slow Food movement in Guadalajara. There was a rather Mexican side effect from that evening: some slow food poisoning... it wasn't too bad though. I've definitely had worse in this country!

While the cause wasn't much fun the effect kind of was: I put on the most colourful shirt I could find, lay around in day-old makeup (am I the only one who enjoys the casually debauched feeling this brings?) and indulged myself by reading children's lit and magazines. All in all quite a successful afternoon!

When there's a gray fuzz in your head, a rainbow shirt, tea, and pink toenails are the only answers

add a candy-coloured pillow and Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

I didn't have a hangover, but it's fun to be dramatic!

and it's best if your reading material matches your candy-coloured world

Oh yuck, I've never had food poisoning before. Glad to hear it wasn't too bad and yes, surrounding yourself with candy colors seems like the best way to relax and combat the ickyness. Your shirt is especially fun. It reminds me of one of those big, round, rainbow lollipops.

Your blog is so cute and colourful! As is that shirt. And it totally matches NYLON. Which is kind of amazing. Because is it just me or is NYLON just AMAZING?! Actually, everything about your blog and pictures matches NYLON.

Oh golly, I'm jealous!
