My reads

 I've been spending way too much time IDing so I haven't read much.
I didn't finish To Kill a Mockingbird and I also didn't finish The Faraday Girls because it wasn't believable.
I finished Franseca's Party, The Third Heather Wells Book and Brooklyn.
I was studing Shakespeare's plays so I read a few of his plays including, The Taming of The Shrew, King Lear and Venus and Adonis.
I'm currently reading Watching the Detectives, the autobiography of a cop who featured in Underbelly 3 and My Brilliant Career by Miles Franklin a book I tried to read 5 years ago but got bored so I decided to listen to it.
I've joined a book club so that I can continue my reading more. My concenration is out of whack again so I need to listen to books and there aren't many audio books at the library. 
My too read list is The slap,  call the Midwife, The Clan of the Cave Bear and Lolita.

I've fallen in love with The Big Bang Theory and I've watched almost every episode 2 or 3 times.
Just this week I saw The Duchess and Coco before Channel so I had a very feminist week. 

Banners

 VM_redux ended months ago but I forgot to upload the final banners. I really enjoyed that community and after it ended I didn't come to livejournal very much after that.




That's all.

Coolspotters

Here is my Coolspotters Page.

I got into identifying clothes last year when I tried to ID many Veronica Mars clothing. The  show is so old that I only ID like four. So I realised I needed  a current show to ID. I tried to get into the vampire Diaries since seenon ID their items but I didn't get into the show. Also with the Vampire Diaries dark lighting it made it difficult to recognise clothes. I used to go to seenon a lot but it's no longer active. A lot of my IDs from Grey's Anatomy and Greek are from there- on my coolspotter page. I watched HIMYM but I didn't recognise anything because they use so many designer brands. At night I saw a repeat of The Big Bang Theory, the classic episode The Bath Item Gift hypothesis and I recognised Penny's Lucky Brand kimono from ebay. That episode was great to start the series from so even though I've never watched Star Wars or Star Trek I became a fan. So I'm kinda like Penny in that way but I'm shy like Leonard and Raj. I love that there is another site also identifying what the guys wear so that takes the pressure off me. When I first went to coolspotters there weren't many post so I didn't want that much pressure spotting stuff but when I went to TBBT page and there were no IDs I wanted to share my knowledge. So I signed up and I identified more and more stuff. On that page I've identified everything Penny wore except for one hoodie, her bag and bedding but you wouldn't know that because this girl keeps stealing my IDs. That was useful at first because I was still learning but now it's annoying. Penny wears a lot of Lucky Brand, Free People, Urban Outfitters and some Anthropologie and Testament.  I think the Australian equivalent would be Valley Girl, Supre and possible Sports Girl. I live in Australia so I do all my IDing online using, kaboodle, ebay and shopstyle. I actually volunteer in a second hand store so I see look a likes all the time. It would be nice going to an actual store that I've identified an item.  When I watched the first two seasons of Gossip Girl I got into more high end fashion and my favourite designer became Catherine Malandrino. I also really like Dolce and Gabanna so I know I'm successful when I can afford a Dolce and Gabanna without breaking the bank. Burberry also has nice coats so I'd like to own one. By doing this I'm become more familar with American brands than Australian brands. Where I live we only get around 20% of Australian brands so if i wanted to ID Australian shows I'd also have to check online. I do watch Australian shows but not any show I could ID their clothes. So even though my journal is dead, just like my feedback from my IDs but IDing is a good way of saving money even though it doesn't save time.
What I own: 

This lucky brand thermal

I own this Urban outfitters tee.
I would like to own others worn by Penny but I haven't found them yet.

I became better at IDing HIMYM when I found out they wore a lot of Anthropologie.
I REALLY want this dress

I'm about to start university so I'll be reading uni books as well.
I achieved my goal of reading 22 books. Hopefully this year I'll read 23!

The Big Bang Theory

I've just gotten into The Big Bang Theory and I love it! I've just become a member of Coolspotters so I've been identifying Penny's clothes. She wears nice clothes. Coolspotters is the only site where the identify Penny's clothes.
I'm posting here the ones I think are a brand but I am not 100% sure. The ones on the page are here:
(By the way I identified all but one of Penny's clothes on Coolspotters)

Penny's colourblock dress: Probably Lux (sold at Urban Outfitters)

Penny's blue barbie doll dress: Also probably Lux

Penny's tank: I'm thinking that is Guess they have something similar.

Penny's tie dye purple halter dress: This is probably by Lucky because they have a tank just like it. It's actually Guess by Marciano
I finished uni now so I'm identifying even more. I think I should get back into reading more and planning my holiday since the main thing that bothers me in identifying clothes is that not many people also look for IDs so I don't get any help.

Clothes on Veronica Mars

I've been so obsessed in finding Veronica Mars clothes to both identify and own. So far I own 3 exact matches and I have identified 2 and advertised a number of outfits for Neptune Style. This long post goes into more detail.

I can't get enough of LoVe banners! This is beautiful!

More Banners won from VM_redux

I was going to wait until I got all my banners back from the first season but the moderator who makes the banner is busy. The comment of the weeks one I think are by Love_is_epic and games are by acinogan.
Betty and Veronica 1x16
Comment of the week

A banner made specifically for me! I requested a question on the character Leo and I wrote a reply. Despite the bad grammar I won!
Word Find!

By uploading the word find I found out how to use photobucket! I only really upload images. There was a choice out of 2 banners and I preferred this one because I didn't particularly like Veronica's alias Betty.
Quizzer

Even though I didn't think much of this episode I still put a lot of effort into the quizzer!
Weapons of Class Destruction quizzer 1x18

I missed the previous week because I had trouble finding the numbers needed. There was no problem with this one! Cool banner!
Hot Dogs Quizzer 1x19

Considering I love this episode it's so sad that I came so close. But I do love this bit when Veronica says train wreck. Leo is cute too!
Comment of the week A Trip to The Dentist 1x21

I made this bigger so you can read what Rhonda wrote. I was the only one to write down my favourites for this incredible episode. Even though I had a lot of favourites. This is a nice friendship moment that has also happened a few times in my life.
Thanks for the banners Sabrina and Rhonda!

Banners won

I've decided to display the banners I've won for entering the quizzer on VM redux. Each banner is made by acinogan.



This was my first one for a cool episode. I was sad because I only got one wrong.




This is an interesting banner. I won with all the other people but I didn't feel like I deserved it because acinogan was being generous.




I WON and I deserved it!


This was an extra banner, which everyone won!




I did so badly at this one! Might have a couple of weeks off so I can get back to my best for the next quiz I enter.
