Good day

Went to Yogurt Mountain with my friends today! Gahh, that place is so magical :) They have an assortment of frozen yogurt. And toppings. I got Vanilla, espresso, cheesecake and pumpkin pie with bananas, blueberries and reeses on it. You pay 45 cents per ounce. I ended up paying like $8 for my yogurt. Whooopss. I have portion control issues...

After that I went to Target with them, and went straight to the CD section. I purchased the Florence and the Machine CD "Lungs". Now, I liked Florence way back before she was on the VMA's or whatever it was. She hooked me "Kiss With a Fist"

The beat is good, And I like the lyrics. And I liked her outfit. And basically her as a person. I'm excited to jam out to her other songs in my car though :)

Oh, and earlier in the day, I went to my salvation army, at like 5, because it usually closes at 7. Perfect, 2 hours to peruse the selection. Except apparently the holiday hours on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday are 'till 6! So I grabbed a shirt, a necklace, a purse (Dooney and Bourke vintage-looking knock off all the wayyy) and some mini pine-cone earrings. I took one of the little pine-cones and put it on a necklace chain, and it looks flipping amazing! Except it fell off sometime tonight in my adventures... But I have one more that I can use. Maybe I'll get a picture tomorrow.

Oh! I might be going to my international mall tomorrow! My boyfriend gave me a boyfriend coupon book, I'll have to show you pics of that too (I'm too tired to explain it), there's a coupon in it for a trip to the international mall. He knows there's an urban outfitters there. And he knows I like Urban outfitters. Good boyfriend, I know. And he's going to buy me lunch too. Ohhhh, whatta life:)

Wonderful Wardrobes: Edition VIII

1. Don't You Shiver by Keiko Lynn
I like the lacy cardigan. All of the lacy cardigans I've come across were boxy or too see through. But this one is cute and drapey. The detailing on the top caught my eye also.
2. Let Them Eat Cake! by Honey Bunny in Wonderland
I've been seeing leopard cardigans around lately, and I have to say, they add a nice touch to an outfit. I also think pleats make an outfit look so crisp and cute.
3. Thanksgiving by Heart City Vintage
Awwww man. I really like fur collars. Those are the one thing I cant seem to come across in my thrifting adventures. Same thing with boots like hers. If I came across a pair of boots like hers, I think i would die on the spot!
4. L A V E N D E R by Gary Pepper Vintage
Beautifulbeautiful pleats :) I like that she wore a crop top instead of tucking a shirt into her skirt.
5. The Rest of My Life Can't Compare to this Night by Noirnouvelle
This outfit just looks so comfy cozy! And once again, the boots. I believe she got them from Top shop, but they're still absolutely adorableee. I definitely blue and pink ought  to be paired like this more often.
6. It Wasn't My Tree by Strawberry Koi
Okay, part of the reason why I put this up here was because of the ukulele :) I really like her tights though, they kind of remind me of my pair of chevron pair I lost...

Totally Awesome Tunes VII: The Weepies

Someone showed me this video and said I should cover it. I think it's a cute song with a cute video to go to it :)

Sunday, December 26, 2010


 This was the outfit I wore Christmas eve. I went over to my cousin's house and we put on a little show. The Ding Darling's Debauchery Christmas Eve Extravaganza.... I think is what my Uncle called it. Anywho, I played a couple songs, but the crowd favorite was this one;

I LOVE KT Tunstall!!! Gahh, she is a music mastermind. I wanna write songs like hers, songa you can move around to.

 I didn't get a picture of my christmas outfit, but it involved a new thrifted black and white striped dress and green tights. Oh, and get this, the dress came with a matching cardigan :D 
So anywho's, I absolutely love Christmas time, the reason? I get to spend time with my family. No lie.
      It hasn't really been about the presents this year or two years past, because my family hasn't had an abundance of money, but I'm okay with that. Besides, I did get a car for an early Christmas Present.
     But, I was thinking about it, and what do you get a 16-year old girl for Christmas? At this point in her life with all the birthday's and Christmas's she's experienced, she probably already has a laptop and cellphone and an ipod (except for in my case, I don't have any of those.... But I don't have a dire need for them except for maybe the cell phone. I've been out of a phone for like 2 months!). If she's musically inclined, you could probably buy her an instrument, that's true (Oh! I got a harmonica for Christmas folks!) But there will come a time, in most cases, when she has all the electronics she wants, or instruments she wants, and then what do the parents buy for that "big Christmas present"? It's just so easy to get kids Christmas presents, because almost everything pleases them.
     My mom got my 2nd cousins puppets and a puppet theatre, which was the perfect gift, because my one cousin, Kaelyn LOVES to put on puppet shows. She also got barbie dolls. And then her two year-old brother got on of those mini cars you can drive in (btw, I'm totally jealous of him, cause I totally wanted one of those as a kid, but didn't get one...). You can't buy those things for a 16 year-old girl.
     So, Christmas has become more about family for me. All I got for Christmas this year was a change counter, makeup, a razor, chapstick, a key chain, a hula guy for my dash, harmonica stuff and money. Sure, I had things on my Christmas list like an acoustic electric guitar and a traditional ukulele, but I already have an acoustic guitar and an acoustic electric ukulele, so I really don't need those things. I also had a point and shoot camera on there, because mine broke, but I just use my sister's camera all the time because she never uses it. It's all just stuff. I don't need a whole lot in life, because I have a really good life, and I have most the things I want.

Coat-Calvin Klein/Burlington Coat Factory
Scarf-Local thrift store
Dress-Charolette Russe
Shoes-Charolette Russe
Anyways, I went to the mall today, and I bought some stuff. Cause that's what ya usually do at the mall. Unless you're broke. I got two bras from Victoria's Secret a pair of jeans from Hollister, a beautiful beaded cardigan (in F21 of all places!) and some black oxfords from Aldo. I was overly ecstatic when I walked past F21 and I saw the cardigan in the window, you have no idea. I had $40 left to spend, and I was going to spend it wisely, and I didn't have much interest in anything else once I got the sweater. Oh mannnnn it's so yummy :)
Here are my shoes. I had to order them 'cause they didn't have the size I am in the store. So essited to get them:)
 I was going to get them in brown, buttt, I found a pair just like them on the F21 website, in brown, for less.
Anyways, that's all I have for today, hope you all had a happy holiday :)

November 24

A and I decided to go to a park near my house a while back, November 24th to be exact. I think everyone should go out and experience what's out there more often.

Wonderful Wardrobes: Edition VII

1.Goodbye Summer by Chic Heorin
I just love the green/blue color combination of the navajo print. I usually only see navajo print in rainbow colors, which can look a tad bit tacky at times. The white romper ( I think it's a romper...) is so crisp and doesn't distract from the jacket.
2. Actual Last day by Hand it Over
 I love how she wears a bowling themed shirt with a skirt that could totally be fancy, but it still looks good. I mean, I feel that if I were to wear something like that, I would look ridiculous, but she looks fine.
3. Take Out by Late Afternoon
 I just absolutely love the color of that cardigan and the way it drapes. The paisley scarf was a perfect thing to pair with it too.
4. A Sidewalk Stroll by Blonde Bedhead
 Sooo, I instantly liked the pattern of this shirt when I saw it. I mean, it would be such a versatile shirt to have. It's neutral, so you could wear it with pretty much anything, and you can dress it up by wearing it with a skirt (like here) or dress it down with a pair of jeans.
5. Old School by Natalie Off Duty
 I'm definitely a fan of colored cardigans, so there's the reason why I like this look. I like the top too. It seems like one of those tops I would look over in a shop, though, because I would consider it "too trendy". But if you pair shirts like that with the right things, they look nice.
6. I'll Find My Soul When I Go Home by In a Sweater Poorly Knit
Okay, this jacket/cardigan is absolutely beautiful! The color of it is deep and rick, and pairing the blue dress just accentuates that.

As we dream by the fire

 And here, you can see my decorated tree. A lot of effort put into it!
Coat-Calvin Klein
Shoes-Charolette Russe

I didn't have any pants left today, so I wore my sweater tights. 
I might be out of a car for a day or week.... Which I'm not too happy about. They have to replace an air thing in it, and depending on where the service place gets it from depends on how long the repair will take. Bet hey, it's okay! It's not like I wanted to drive around and do stuff this week or anything.
I mean, I would like to go out and buy the Christmas presents I want to buy... 5 days before Christmas, but I'll just get my mom to drive me to get them. I mean, that's what she's there  for, right?

Anyways, I watched Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World last night, and it was interesting. The movie is set up like a video game

I think Michael Cera is pretty awesome too, so, that added some points of awesome. I think they should make more movies like this. The only complaint I have about it is that the movie got confusing at times. Like, it would be reality at one moment, and the BAM videogamemode! But overall, I enjoyed it.

Hope you all are having a good week and happy holidays!
