I love the colors of this top, it makes it so versatile and these shorts of course are deliciously comfortable. You guys all know that I go for comfort and this necklace just adds something without it being plain. I bought it for $6 guys, how awesome is that. I wore this to my boyfriend's house to go out to lunch and later we swam in the pool. Today I'll probably be doing the same thing and then for the weekend I'll be working on both of my speeches. Hopefully I won't stutter like crazy because whenever I speak, even to talk in class my professor is like "speak up please, I can't hear you". Bleh

About Youtube: I honestly have no idea what's up with my camera or computer system but whenever I try to edit my videos and add effects, the color comes out really grainy.

Yesterday I was very comfortable. I've been so obsessed with pink lately and I love finding different things to wear with it. I got this pretty little necklace from this unique jewelry shop a couple minutes from my house and I know I'll be a regular customer. Then of course I added this headband because my hair was a bit messy!
I thought blue nail polish was the perfect touch :).

Have a great day guys :)

I fell in love with this outfit after I had everything on. The necklace, the lace, the leopard print, I love it! The flow and the quality of this top is so perfect and I love how it drapes. I think I'll be wearing it again very soon!

So this is the end of my first week at college and it's been pretty fun. I already have a group project and I'm already tired when I get home, which isn't a good thing haha. I only wish that I took later classes instead of waking up at 6:30 to leave at 7:00 :(. But it's good to have something to do. And I'm still on the hunt for jobs!

Hey guys! So today I'm getting a dog! I'm super excited and right now I have all the time in the world to train her. My other dog Rosie was taken away from me. My mom sneakily took her to the pound when I was away at school one day....anyway we've fought about it for weeks and I don't want to dwell on the subject lol. Her name is Harley and she's a Labrador mix! I get to go pick her up from the Humane Society in a couple of hours!

While I was out, my friend Jasmin took these photos of me in the back of her mom's office and she thought it was the perfect background for the giraffe print shorts I was wearing. The belt was a gift from mom that I've grown to actually love and the earrings are a bit heavy but super cute.

So now I'm off to try to pass time quickly until I get to go pick up Harley! Oh and my friend Denisse came by and I took photos of her. It was a quick little photo shoot and I can't wait to show you guys the results! Happy Monday :).

Posted on Jun 15, 2012

This is a little secrets tag from FrancisDodson and an 11 question tag from My Styled Expressions I thought I'd share with you guys. By the way all of you are tagged so if you choose to do it, it's up to you :)

1. What is one product that makes you feel like a million bucks?
Lotion from Bath and Body Works, smells so good!

2. What is your skincare secret / A passed down skincare tip?
This makes my face so clear and works all the time. This is also from Bath and Body Works. The sugar scrub and the oil is for my body. I love feeling smooth so every Sunday I try to use the scrub and rub oil on my body :)

3. Share your hair secret?
I twist my hair every night with water, and shea butter!

4. What is your biggest diet rule?
Every once in a while I drink this tea. It cleanses the system and makes your tummy feel all flat ha :)

5. Any work out tips?
On days when I don't sprint or run, I do lunges and sit ups because I mostly worry about my lower body.

6. Which perfume is your secret weapon?
I don't really use perfume as much as I use body spray but I found this perfume from Rue21 for $10 and it's very girly and sweet. It might be time for a change.

7. Show us a clothing item that always turns heads
Sooo these shorts make your butt look really good. Paired with the right top, I feel like these shorts are awesome, and they're comfortable!

8. What is your most treasured piece of jewelry?
Alex bought me these earrings and they're so pretty. These were the first earrings he gave me and I can't wait to wear them. I always say I will, but I never do because they're so delicate :/

9. Who is your style crush?
MeeknMild, An Urban Explorer and She Wears Fashion. I love how they always look so chic with a girly edge and I just love their use of colors. :)

10. Tell us something we don't know about you:
When I was younger I went through a million stages with fashion. First I was a tomboy. I'd have my hair in braids with a ponytail and I would seriously dress like a boy. Then I started wearing all black and I actually had chains hanging off my pants... Then I went into the 'showing all your skin' phase. And it slowly changed by buying my first cardigan, my first necklace, first pair of flats and so on. :)

Popcorn and it still is!

Do you have any siblings? If yes, how many?
none, only child

I Wanna by All American Rejects

What is one of your favorite quotes?
"Apologize for yourself". My aunt always says this. Whenever I know I've done something wrong I don't feel better unless I make it right, even if I try to ignore it. It eats me up ha.

indoor is reading and listening to music, outdoor is walking barefoot and jogging

I love how I've changed myself. I'm very proud of that and it gives me sooo much peace and a sense of self appreciation ya'know?

What sound do you love?
Hmmm, plastic bags cackling with clothes ha <3.

My Closet: DIY SHORTS :)

Posted on Jun 14, 2012

So my friend Jasmin came over and we spent the day on shorts! It was a fun way to pass time and they all came out pretty well. From left to right:

Pink Floral: I took some fabric from an old shirt and glued it on!
Tan: I bleached my old brown shorts to a lighter color. It was seriously ugly brown and they were from Goodwill.
Striped: I measured out the lines and colored them in with permanent marker. But I need to color it in more!
American Flag: Again with the permanent marker and I added lace to the back because when I colored the back I ran out of permanent marker. A nice cover up!
Teal: I just added lace to the back pockets :)

Today I went out and bought yoga tapes with my friend Vanice and then I picked up a few things from Goodwill (shame). Then Alex and I went to go see Prometheus and went swimming in his pool. I thought the movie was okay and a bit slow but there were a few parts that were really intense!

Outfit: I love the pattern of this top so much and I love these shorts. This outfit is completely comfortable and for me it has the right amount of color so it's not too bland. I love the ring from oasap, they're jewelry has never failed and I love the necklace!

P.S. Be sure to check out my chictopia! :)

Buys: Goodies at Kohl's

Posted on Jun 11, 2012

I bought these items a couple of weeks ago before graduation. I'm in love with those earrings and especially that necklace! I bought the neon shorts from Target and I bought my first pair of  black pumps. I love them and they're 100% comfortable.

So today I'm off to job search again. But before that I'm going to clean up my room a bit, read and work out. That's really all I can do right now without asking for money -_-.

The only upside?? I start school next Tuesday and I'll possibly get a Kindle! It's so much cheaper than buying all of the textbooks I need :). Wish me luck on my job searching!
