Back to Reality

Those of you who have been following for quite a while, you may know my obsession with Delightfully Tacky. She recently posted this post making blogging a bit more personal by sharing what I would call "fun facts". When you read a lot of blogs regularly, you tend to think you know them, but really it's just their Internet self that they are portraying. And you really never get to know the person. Hopefully you'll know me a bit better after this!

  • When I was little, I used to have stick straight, baby-fine hair. Weird right? Considering how curly it is now!
  • I love the i-tunes free single of the week.
  • I am a morning person and an early bird!
  • I constantly sit on my knees!

  • I write in script.
  • I had my first memory when I was 2 years old. I was swinging on my stomach and next to me a family friend was swinging on a wooden horse, it it me in the eye.
  • I'm addicted to Project Runway!

  • I adore tea.
  • I have a YouTube account just to comment on videos.
  • I have a horrible habit of re-reading books!
  • I am the most indecisive person you will ever meet.

P.S. I'm making a kaleidoscope in Tech. Here's a little sneak peak!

To the Max

AM I the only blogger that shops at places such as TJMaxx and Marshall's? I don't necessarily mind it, it's just something I've noticed. Most bloggers are all about getting a great bargin and buying things on sale etc. I think maybe they're underated, maybe they're known as slob stores who knows? Everynow and then someone will ask me where I got somethings, lets say I say marshall's. They look shocked. Is it really that shocking? They have amazing shoes, flannels, leggings, and best of all tights! So why do they seem to have a bad repuatation? It's a mystery to me!
I was so cold out when I took these pictures on Thursday. I had to be extra careful because nothing was swept or shoveled yet. My hat fell off a few times, and some snow got on my camera even though it was on the front porch! And I almost fell flat on my face! I was walking by to where I was posing, thinking "after this, I'm going to go inside" then I slipped and fell! I supported myself by my hand and it was freezing. I agreed to go inside after that.

I know, thrilling! What a life!

Finally got some movement in my skirt in photos!

It's been a while since I've worn this skirt. Maybe I'm wearing because I'm intensely coveting a floral skirt and dress lately. But it's still the middle of the winter, and I have way too many clothes!

Ah! And check out these huge icicles in front of my house! They're probably 3 or 4 feet long!

I just realized I never uploaded the photo's from the beach last summer! Better late then never, but I can't believe I did that! Well, here you go, probably the only proper outfit photos from all last summer, enjoy!
A wonderful day at the beach! We must spend about 6-8 hours there everyday we go! This year though, we only went for a weekend instead of our usual week because my brother had college orientation the week we usually go.

I miss the simplicity of writing the pieces in summer outfits, it's just so much easier! Actually, I really miss the warm weather. I mean, I love the cold, just the winter in general really, but I guess I'm getting spring fever! I don't actually like spring too much though, but I do love the change of seasons. It must be odd living in places like San Fransico, LA, the Bahammas, Dallas and other places like them, only one season all year! Ah! It must be so odd! I think I'd miss the variation though if I lived somewhere like those places.

There you go! Actually (I need to find a new word!) I have one or two more I recently found from summer 2010. Maybe I'll post them sometime soon. It's weird to think that it was song long ago, right? I'll see you tomorrow! Goodnight!

Feelin' Groovy

Good morning everyone! Finally it's Saturday and I can catch up on my posts (will I ever stop saying that?). Though I thought midterms would be over by now, we had a delay on Thursday therefore, my math midterm is Monday, so I don't think i will post tomorrow, but you never know!

I'm still adjusting to my new bangs, still not sure about them, though it's been a week already! They look amazing with hair clips headbands and hats. But I kind of miss my side part, it's weird having the same amount of hair on both sides of my head, and I haven't quite worked out how much mousse, and or gel to put in yet. I guess I'll figure it out though. I do kind of wish I made them a tad thicker. I suggested it to the person who cuts my hair (I wasn't allowed to cut them myself) and they said it would not be smart to make them thick, but in reality, I think they would be easier to straighten. These things just won't stay straight! Well, it might just be my lack of patience kicking in, but I don't see how people do that to their full head everyday!

I am currently in the process/obsession of redoing my room. I ordered some bedding from Target last week and here it is! It's very 60's/70's Feelin' Groovy. Might be a bit too pink and purple, maybe even a bit baby-ish. I haven't decided yet. Any thoughts?

Put A Flower In Your Hair

Ah! It's so cold out here! I am a winter personat heart, but I'm ready for it to get a tad warmer, we've already had about 7 snowstorms.Well, it's been about 3 or 4 days since I've last posted and I have a lot to catch up on, maybe I"ll do theme of the week this morning. A day or two late. Again.
And, I have a topic to discuss, not a rant, it's merely a question. Am I the only blogger that shops at TJMaxx or Marshall's? I mean most bloggers are all about getting bargains, and thrift shopping and things like that, so it just seems kind of supprising to me.
I thought it would be pretty easy coming up with a theme of the week, but it's been very difficult. I mean, I have a few ideas, but I'd rather use them when I'm actually in the mood to use them. Last week was easy, I was obsessed with interior decoration last week, I'm still kind of in that phase if you will. I don't know what I'll do. Hopefully something interesting.

I think I was dancing in that last picture! Hehe! Oh, the adventures of blogging! I got almost no good shots that day (these were taken on Monday) and if I got any medeokre ones, I must have deleted all of them. I should really stop deleting all of them, they might be fun th look back on soneday.

Midterms this week, please excuse me if there is a lack of posting this week. I have four midterms to take. Wish me luck! I'll post when I can!
First outfit styled with my bangs. Is it tres chic? Well, I'm not so sure about that, but I'm kind of digging them. I kind of feel like a cross between Delightfully Tacky, Zooey D., and Katy Perry! Ah amazing! I love all of their styles! I love how quirky they all are, and they each just have their own thing!
I'm still not sure about them yet, I think I like them so far, they add a little extra umph! I aquired a straightener today, it's lime green on the inside! And it's pretty useful. Though I still maybe have to blow dry my bangs if they're not dry by the time I want to straighten them, but I guess we'll see!

I was so cold out! I, mean it's been a pretty cold and snowy winter, but it was frigid!And my nose got all red! :D
Good night everyone and I'll see you tomorrow!(possibly)

Tres Chic!

I actually loved this one! Nice change of pace huh?

I was planning this one all week! I would have worn it sooner, but we only had a 3 day week. So.
Since I just posted probably less than an hour ago. I don't necessarily have too much right now. But if you would like, scroll down for a surprise!

Scarf- DIY(really it's just a piece of fabric, and I tied it in the back!)

I got bangs! I kind of loving them! They make me feel very chic! Tres Chic maybe? I kind of feel like Zooey D. or Delightfully Tacky! I'm so excited about them! I now must aquire a straightener now for my bangs! Have a nice few hour, I might do my first DIY post today! I'll see you later!

Mood Ring

Currently I'm very in the mood to mix things up. I've had a lot of things the same for a long time, and I'm just ready to make things a little bit different. Certain things that are easy to change back, I'll change it on a whim, and if I don't like it, I can just change it back. Maybe that's one reason I change the background for my blog so much, this one with the cameras, I hope to keep for a long time. I think I will because it feels kind of universal to all of my mood ring like obsessions. With those ever changing micro-obsessions, I always like certian things, but every now and then, I'll get extremely into something for about a week. Currently though, I'm obssessed with re-doing my room. Really, just interior decoration in general. I've always liked it. But these days I'm just combing the internet for tons of inspiration all the time, constantly trying to deciede what to do, there are just so many options! I'm personally thinking of a green room, and I found a very 60's hippie-dippie bedding. Maybe I'll base a theme off of that.
Even my dog Sasha decided to join the picture!
Speaking of mixing it up, I have something to share in my next post!

(this happened on Friday 1/21/11)
Yesterday I was out with a friend, and we went to go get her computer fixed at the apple store. I was getting out of the car, and I realized I only had my phone in my pocket, my camera was nowhere to be found. I checked under the seat-cushions, on the floor, then I turned away and spotted it. On the ground, covered in snow. I grabbed it and ran inside to try and try it. It took about a half and hour, and a glasses cleaner to get all the water off. I was still freaking out! I can't believe I did that! I'm very careful with my camera too. I try to keep it as safe as possible in fear someone (or I ) might break it again.
These photos are from Thursday.

Put A Cherry On Top

I've currently been watching a this one girl of rants on youtube. Some people get mad if she rags on you opinion, but all of her points are so true! I haven't posted anything about her yet, but she recently posted a rant about Will Smith. I immediatly clicked the video. She ranted about how Willow Smith mentions her haters and how she whips her hair to brush them away (no pun intended) . It's ridiculous, she has no haters! She is 11, and she is dressing like she is 25. And her brother. He is supposed to be proclaimed as a "great rapper, and a huge talent", I heard he wasn't very good in the Karate Kid, I still haven't seen it, the origanal was too good and I know it wouldn't live up to first one!

I finally found a way to style my cupcake hat! I was so excited! Only one print today, I feel it's busy enough to balance the whole outfit. What do you think?

Well, I'll see you later!

Theme of the Week: Bedroom Decor

Another theme of the week for my wonderful readers! It's a tad late, but better late then never! Lately, I've had my mind set on redo-ing my room, I already moved my bed, and I think I'm going to paint it green, with a chalkboard wall! I also found some amazing bedding from Target! Even if you have a pan, you can never do with too much inspiration! Enjoy!

Delay What Needs To Be Done

Guess what time it is? Story Time!

We have a 3 hour delay today. Therefore, I am able to catch-up on my many missed blog posts this morning. This one was actually from last Thursday! Over a week ago! Remember within the reahlm of my last couple of posts, when I said something about me not remembering my outfit on Thursday? Well this morning, I woke up intending to post Wednesday's outfit then, I realized I didn't post this little number!

I cannot stand taking photos inside, I try to take them in the morning before I leave, but sometimes I just don't have the time. This usually happens on Thursday. Yesterday I took different photos inside, with a flash. I normally hate the way a flash looks, so tacky! But I think I'm really kind of digging the weird, grimy? vibe of them, if that makes sense. It's probably all that time on Delightfully-Tacky, my favorite blog who loves tacky relics of the 70's. I do love 70's, one of my favorite era's, but I adore the 60's. I love the whole mod-twiggy type of 60's, and I love the more rustic part of the 60's with the moccasins, worn in jeans, native american things. It's all so amazing! Me and my best friend always joke around that we were born in the wrong era! We are both so obsessed with the 60's, and love the 70's. Even the music was better back then, really that's an obvious one. Actually on her tumblr, I found she reblogged a photo (coincidentally from Halfway Somewhere) it said, "The Beatles, better than Justin Bieber since the 1960's". So true!

*For the record (no pun intended!) I don't really hate all modern music, I just don't really respect a lot of the "artisits" they have people autotune their voices, and other people write their own songs, and they're horrible live. If your good live, especially live acoustic, my repesct goes up for you a lot. One of the reasons I adore Katy Perry, you can say she can't sing live. Maybe she can't in HUGE preformances but I love all of her live acoustic stuff, This one is one of my favorites.

Strike A Pose

Recently on my trust companion (a.k.a my camera) I discovered a little feature with a 10 second time and it takes 3 shots. On my first set of shots, I tend to forget I put it on the 3 shot thingy (articulate, I know) I have a ready pose, I stumble a bit, then do a mediocre pose. On my second set of shots, I have two ready poses, and one of them just tends to look like one of the photos I've already taken. During the spring, and summer, and fall, I think I'll just stick to the plain 10 second timer. In this weather though, it just is a lot more practical because it is intensely cold out there for my hands, feet (even with two pairs of socks!), and if I'm wearing tights. Also because, I hate getting snow on my jeans, leggings, in my shoes or boots. Though it is still pretty darn cold, we've been having somewhat of what my mom called a heatwave. In other words instead of the usual 28-32 degrees it is between 32 and 42 degrees. It's kind of interesting to think of there being a heatwave in the middle of the winter, but I guess it is a pretty accurate way to describe it.

Really though, if my mom hadn't mentioned it, I probably wouldn't even caught it getting slightly warmer for a few days unless it reached over 40. These days it's in the mid 30's. Tonight though, it's supposed to be freezing! Well, really I don't know the temperature, but I'll assume because if I'm correct it's supposed to snow tonight, freeze, then leave a sheet of ice in the morning'.
Weird, I just talked about the weather.
Well, these were taken on Saturday, I've been wearing a lot of jeans lately. Actually on Saturday I went out to get some new jeans, I don't think I had gotten a new pair since July.
I've been missing lots of posts lately. I need to re-wear an outfit to take pictures of it. Since I wore it last Tuesday I wouldn't bother at this point, but I really liked that one. Maybe I'll do that tomorrow (probably not) along with those 2010 posts I never got to, which I was going to do this morning, but got caught up looking at bedroom ideas, I'm ready to mix it up. That really say a lot, I normally hate changing the way things are set up!

* I recently got some feathers from Ac Moore to make headbands, then realized I didn't have a hot glue gun! That day I also got some barrettes and hair clips. One of the barrettes matched this peacock feather thing I'm wearing, and a clip matched another feather piece, so it all worked out alright! You'll be seeing it later this week!
