What up!? :: Wednesday, September 28, 2011
So, I'm back in the advertising industry! Again...
Back to being a sign artist assistant, which all in all is pretty neat in and of itself. But, as always, it's a part time gig.
On the up side, my mother is my boss, I can wear whatever the hell I want, and make my own hours as long as I get done what needs to get done. (and it pays well)
I'm also going to be starting another part time job at Bath and Body Works, a soap/lotion/perfume/candle store. So, life is looking up again on the money frontier. YAY! (￣▽￣)ノ
Other than my job crap, I've decided, since I can dress the way I like more often, I'm going to try to take pictures of my TRUE every day outfits!
Each day, I plan to snap a couple pictures of what I'm wearing. Starting... Yesterday!
I wont be posting every day, but probably do 2-3 days at a time.
SO, Yesterday, work day Yeah. Wore a slew of my new clothes.
And, Today. Another work day. More toned down and less hair :D
I also spent some time in my garden today. Not a lot going on there now. Peas are coming up, hopefully they'll do as good as the green beans did... (seriously, we ate green beans every day for weeks) other than that, the watermelons are still going... a bit, and baby cantaloupe. Anyway (＾□＾*)
ANNNND~~ Soon my first ever circle lenses will have to go in the trash in about 2 weeks! I plan to toss them out when they are exactly 1 year old. Technically, they should have been tossed long ago. They're only good for a year when still packaged. If they're out of their packages... they're only supposed to have a 2 month or so lifespan. (But, as a one time optician, if you clean them properly, they last until they become uncomfortable... don't tell your optometrist. They lie).
G&G/Dueba Dolly Brown - Love these lenses so much. I'm in the market for new brown ones, and as I said before, I was thinking about the fairy ones... but maybe I'll just re-get these. (wearing them today)
Bargain shopping with my Mama! :: Tuesday, September 27, 2011
Mama and I had a theme going! It was totally unintentional, though!
Squinty! SO bright. No bottom lashes this day. call me lazy (*´ο`*)
First, we went to lunch at a Mexican restaurant because we had a coupon. Unfortunately, the restaurant wasn't very spectacular. It was so BLAND, like there was no Mexican spices at all. But, it being so boring made it easy not to eat a ton.
After that, Mama and I headed out to all the flee-markets and resale stores. I love finding awesome clothes for dirt cheap prices!
These were my gets!
Flared Jean skirt - It is long enough to be high-waisted, but I think that's mostly because I'm really short. Still looking for some high-waisted shorts.
Hounds-tooth skirt - brand new with tags attached!
Floral Long sleeved shirt - brand new with tags!
Polka-dot blouse - also, you guessed it, brand new! LOVE IT!
White boots - I've been looking for white boots for ages, and just wasn't having any luck. Finally, I found the perfect pair at goodwill! Ha! Brand new 100% leather!!
Leopard Print dress - This DRESS! Just what I needed in my life. It can be used in so many ways. Throw a sweater over it and it's casual, heels and a little black purse and it is perfect for clubbing or a fancy dinner. I saw it and just HAD to have it. Best part about it, it has POCKETS!
In other news, I had a slew of injuries from the weekend, too. While I was at the restaurant, I got my finger caught in the lock in the bathroom. I had to rip the skin out to free my hand. It doesn't look that bad, but dang did it hurt.
AND, when I was at the park exercising, I was stung by a yellow-jacket on the back of my leg. It stung me 4 times before I killed it. Then, my leg swelled a ton and itched like crazy for the last 3 days. Owies!!
Long time no write! :: Friday, September 23, 2011
It has been over 2 weeks since I last updated!! It's a wonder!
I've just been so busy, and haven't had enough time to put together any note-worthy outfits and even when I do dress nicely, I don't have any time to snap a picture before I run out the door!
So, to let you all know I'm not dead! I have just a couple picture's I've managed to snap. Ｏ(≧∇≦)Ｏ
My Evil came down to visit me for a couple days and we had a chance to catch up a bit. Pink Punk Cosmos! These are delicious! Cotton candy and cosmos, YUM!
New nails! I saw something similar on a twitter somewhere or another and figured I give it a try. Unfortunately, I think these are better for winter time! I think soon I'm going to do something with a Halloween theme!
Speaking of Halloween! I am ridiculously excited that it's almost that time again! I love everything these is about fall! Harvest time, pumpkin carving, cooler weather, haunted houses, everything!
What will everyone wear for Halloween this year? (See I'm already planning!)
And, one outfit I actually managed to snap in my busy weeks!
Monthly dreamv picks :: Friday, September 9, 2011
I love the shape and cut of this dress. Looks like it would look pretty awesome over a pair of skinny jeans or with a wide belt and tights.
Lace up knee-high boots
These look so dreamy! I can see me being able to wear these with a lot of different outfits. Dresses, skirts, shorts, over jeans.
I don't really have a lot of shorts that fit any more. Most of my shorts are way too big for me now. So, new shorts would really be up my alley. I also love the charms that are attached. I'd be able to take them off and put them on other things as well as wear them with the shorts!
I can't decide which color I like the best, but I new cute coat would really rock. I have 4 coats already (way too many I know) but 2 are black, and one is a really dark navy, I don't have anything with a cute pattern or color! So this would work really well with basic outfits to spice them up a bit.
There were a couple other things that I really liked on DreamV, but none of them were different enough from things I already have to make me want to buy them.
ANDD~ Just a couple pictures :)
My camera has been having some weird focusing issues since I dropped it a couple weeks ago. It usually focuses just fine, but sometimes it blurs out for no reason.
Outfit~~ I am SO in love with this blouse! It goes with so many co-ords!
I've also just rearranged my room a bit to make some more space and make it look better. You can kind of see some of the changed from the pictures. I'm probably going to make a post about the changes eventually.
That's it for now.
New gets and nails! :: Wednesday, September 7, 2011
I've been bargain shopping! I love finding gal-like items in unexpected places for GREAT prices!
First off, I've noticed Polka-dots are very much the trend this fall. Just about everything is being made in polka-dot! Dress, skirts, stockings, pants, blouses!
With that in mind, I was so HAPPY when I found this beautiful dress!
Original Price: $48
It's a nice color of brown, and the collar is a cute detail, too.
Next, I've been wanting a floral denim blouse for awhile now.
Something like this!
Then, walking through Wal-mart I glanced up while I went through the clothing section and THERE IT WAS! Gorgeous!
$12!! AND I looked it over well to make sure the craftsmanship was alright. This beauty is in great shape and is perfect!
I also found a couple other things that I just couldn't pass up.
Cute black vest.
Cute print bag. I just loved the print and the shape of this purse! This item was also on sale! It had been $89, but I got this awesome bag for just $33! Couldn't pass it up!
Heh, I look awesome! very lazy day, but first day using the purse
Finally, I repainted my nails today. I just wanted something simple (job interviews and all) so I went with this pattern.
Then~~ I had time and painted my toes to match!
Inspirations etc. :: Saturday, September 3, 2011
Sadly to say, I haven't been seeing a lot of new styles coming out. I feel like the last 3 months of magazines have re-hashed the same styles again and again.
I'm totally ready for fall/winter styles to come out so we can see something
I'm looking forward to sweaters and colored tights! The last 2 years, sheer black patterned tights have been really in. As much as I love those types,
I'm ready for COLOR to come back!!!!
I remember 3-5 years ago, how BRIGHT colored tights were the in thing! Purple, pink, red, mustard yellow! These are the colors I'm ready to come back this year!
Image from Ninja Vintage (circa 2007)
As I was flipping through Sept. Popteen, to my surprise,
COLOR TIGHTS!!! Ｏ(≧∇≦)Ｏ
According to popteen, this year black isn't going to be in (but we all know it still will be) but colorful tights are making a comeback!
Aside from finding the colored tights, I found a couple outfits I really liked in September's Popteen.
Polka-dot playsuit, star patterned dress, and high waisted shorts with a blouse.
I want to add these items to my wardrobe!!
I was also paging through Zipper magazine, and found 2 makeup styles I REALLY liked.
The first one is right from the cover! I'm in love with the top lashes. Does anyone know which those are??
I also really liked the bottom lashes on the model. I actually have those bottom lashes (Dolly wink - No.6 Baby Cute), I just never wear them because they never look like that one me xD
The second picture I just find stunning. So simple, but still with a very gal feeling. The model is actually wearing the same lashes I've been wearing lately (diamond lash - celeb lash).
And, I've found the next pair of circle lenses I want!
Fairy Water lenses!
They are just so whimsical looking! I'm not sure what color I'll be getting. My brown lenses are about to expire though, so probably brown
Aside from all that, today was kind of a lazy day. Putting in applications, lunch with my Grandparents, and running errands!
So, I didn't feel like changing purses... so a little color mismatching xD
Wearing Celeb lashes and the baby cute ones.
OH, and there was this
HUGE moth near my door when I left!
OH OH! Last thing, my sale is still going on! So, if you're looking for some cute clothes for cheap come look!!
