10 Things On My Mind

So I haven't done a post like this in awhile and I have some time on my hands, and I thought, why not? Here are some things that are on my mind: (mostly things that I want, though, because I'm a brat ;)

1. Summer Clothes
Everything I have bought for the past few months have been Winter things, so I don't have that many Summer things. Next time I go shopping, it will be for warm weather!

(from Forever 21)

I've seen these every where and I really want one now! You answer a question everyday for 5 years and see how much you've changed, and it really helps you think about each day more, I think.

I wrote about this one before. It's so awesome and I need to get myself one!
4. An iTunes giftcard (or just more songs)
To get these fantastic songs and plenty more:

If there are any movies that I crave to watch, but don't have, it would be these two. I love them! They have been on my "movies to buy" list for awhile, and I need to get them soon.

6. Polaroid Film
Yes, polaroid film. I have the camera, but film is just so expensive! Maybe this Summer I will get one roll for the whole Summer. To capture the memories in such a classic way!

7. Hot Chelle Rae Concert Tickets
Yeah, yeah. Obviously. They're coming to Philly in April, and I want to go soooo badlyyyyy! I can't not go to a concert of theirs in my own state! That's unheard of!

8. Warm Weather
Again - obviously. Who doesn't want warm weather?! I like the coziness of Winter, but I'm done with it now. Come on Summer, I'm ready for you!
Mmmm look how good this lemonade looks!

9. Getting my Permit
Hehe ;)

10. Tickets to Ireland
Please? So I can see views like this:


but MOSTLY, to hear accents like this: (Can't get enough. The first minute is heaven.)

Yep! What's been on your mind lately? :)

California and cameras

so i thought i would tell you about my dream last night. it was pretty good! but slightly frustrating.

so i was in San Francisco with some people from school, (i think it may have been the tennis team, come to think of it) and we were camping on a hill type thing. the hill over looked the city of San Fran, and it was so awesome! so i took out my camera to take a picture that looked exactly like this:
pretty right?! so i tried to take the picture, but my camera was telling me it need to be charged. so i tried putting batteries in it, but i guess i forgot that it doesn't take batteries and that it needed to be plugged in and charged.

...then i started putting crayons in it as batteries? but it worked! but then as soon as i was about to take the picture, we had to leave in a big rush, and my camera doesn't work well in the dark, so i couldn't take it quick enough.

so yeah! it was a pretty sad story. but i think i have a thing with California and cameras, because a few nights ago i had a dream i was in Los Angeles and went into a tool shop and saw Justin Bieber. i tried to take a picture of him, but i couldn't get my camera to work and as soon as i got it to work, he was leaving.

prrrrretty crazy. hope you all had a good Tuesday! :)

lazy day + shoes

first of all, it snowed last night! i hate how it always snows at night though. it's nice to wake up to, but you can't watch it fall! but so far i've spent the day inside doing random cozy things. it's been a very relaxing day!

second of all, i think i'm starting to have too many shoes. i mean i got 3 new pairs just this week! i knew i loved shoes too much, and i was going to tell myself to stop, but i don't think that's going to happen.

 i got these and these and now yesterday my mom got me black oxfords because they were on sale. so now i have the brown ones AND the black ones. hey, why not?

but seriously, no more shoes for awhile. ;)

hope you had a relaxing Saturday!

Friday Fancies - Blogger Inspiration

i really enjoyed {av}'s Friday Fancies idea this week! you could pick a blogger or anything on the web that has an outfit that inspires you. so my first thought was Annie, from The Other Side of Grey. when scrolling through her blog, i came across this outfit and loved it! so if you'll notice, the outfit i came up with is almost identical to hers.. hehe ;) 

Untitled #23

isn't it so cute?? i can't pull off leggings as pants, but i think the shirt might be just long enough to cover what needs to be covered. for some reason, i couldn't find a good sweater that i was looking for anywhere on polyvore! it was so frusterating. i would try the outfit though, that's fursure! who's someone you look up to fashion-wise?

hope your Friday is great! woo - it's Friday!

Thursday, January 19, 2012


this past weekend i was feeling quite creative and saw something my friend posted on tumblr. it's this DIY project and it's so pretty! so i went out and bought glue, and fabric, and that's about it...

anyway, this is what it's supposed to look like, and these 2 pictures are the one i made! not too shabby, eh?

it was actually pretty hard and took some time. but i think it's a wonderful gift for anyone! just save your jelly jars and follow the easy steps!

i put a tea light in it and lit it but accidentally got the fire too close and singed the fabric.. hehe. no big deal. you can't even tell from the outside!

a good day afterall

 well hello!! i've been pretty busy. let me tell you why.

this was originally going to be a post about how bad my day was - but now it's not. alright, so, today i may have had my poetry out loud in english and i was totally completely nervous about it, but i nailed it! my friend said my face didn't even get red until i sat down! score! and then right after that, i had to memorize a bunch of sentences for spanish, which i was also nervous about, because i have a problem. but that was a piece of cake! (at least it was easy to say... who knows if the sentences were good or not...)

i also had gym first period today, and had dancing. but, it's the last day of dancing!! woo!

oh, but that's not all...

i came home to find these puppies on the door mat! YES. it's a pretty big deal.

maybe i'm exaggerating. i mean in was pretty much a normal day, with some sugar thrown in. hey, for a Wednesday, this is good!

plus American Idol is on tonight. just saying. good day.

happy hump day to you all! hope your also went well! :)

happy Sunday!

 so yesterday i dyed the underneath of my hair blond again, and this time it actually worked! yay! it's not bleached or anything, so it's not really noticeable, but it's there!

and i went to target yesterday and finally got these mocs! i've been waiting for them to go on sale for a long time and i'm so glad they did! less than $10!

today my parents went to a football party (go Ravens!!!) so i have to watch my sister for like 5 hours. so i told my dad he didn't have to pay me (i never get paid for watching my sister anyway) but at target they had this limited time only thing and it was 2 seasons of I Love Lucy for $15. so i'm going to get that! we have 1 season on DVD and the other on VHS, and my sister kind of ruined those, so i'm just going to start fresh.

for Christmas i got an I Love Lucy calendar, and every time i see it, it makes me want to watch it - haha! so i've been watching SO much I Love Lucy lately. so i really want those DVD's!

hope you all have a relaxing Sunday :)

blog love

this is just a post about some recent blogs i found that i love looking at! i hope you check them out!

check out the blog Blue Feather Style - it's so great! i love her style and look at her hair!! i can't stop looking at it.

i love looking at funny Tumblrs. i could literally look at them forever. like this one - Laugh Because You Want To! it's so great.

this Tumblr is also so fun to look at - it's called Did You Know, and there are so many interesting facts. this is another that i could look through all day!

if you've read before, you know i like Dear Blank Please Blank, so definitely check it out! it's another fun things to scroll through.

as you also know, i love fashion blogs, so there is a blog called The Other Side Of Grey (which i think i talked about recently). i love her outfits and i'm so jealous of all of her shoes!

so check those out! perfect reads for a cold Saturday :)

Friday Fancies - Color Crush

happy Friday! this day should have gone really fast since it was only a half day, but it went soooo slowww. so i'm glad it's Friday! and we have off on Monday, so yay!
this week on {av}'s Friday Fancies, the theme was color! as you'll see, the dress i chose is black. i thought i would choose black or white and then add the color i want. so i went with green! blue is a color everyone chooses, so i didn't go with that and i don't think yellow looks good on me, so i didn't go with that.
Untitled #22
yes? hope your Friday is fantastic! oh - and listen to this song. so pretty, right?!

relaxation at its best

i would literally cry to have this. look at it!! it's perfect!! and it's not just a seat by the window, it's a bed! oh i love it so much.

anyway... today i don't really have much homework and tomorrow's a half day, so i'm spending the rest of my day laying in bed, watching The Suite Life of Zack and Cody on Netflix (the good one, not that "Suite Life on Deck" business), doing my nails, and reading magazines. sounds like a plan! i feel like this is more of a tomorrow thing though - because it's supposed to snow! yay!

oh, boots


SO. i got an e-mail and my boots are out of stock! just the other day they were being shipped! what the heck! so now i have to get those out of my mind and find others and wait even longer to get them. fan-tas-tic.

hope your day went well.

i love when people do inspiring posts, when i'm bored or have been studying for awhile, and just want to chill. or if i want to be creative and learn new things. so here are some things that have inspired me lately and i hope they do for you also!

this stop motion, i'm sure many of you have seen before, but it's the one that really inspired the stop motion my friend and i did a few years ago! i wish i could show you the one we did, but i'm not sure how :/
fashion blogs, like these - The Daily Fashionista and The Other Side of Grey. those are the ones i read daily. they really give me ideas of what to shop for and dress like!

Tumblr - duh! seeing certain pictures that are just beautiful and reblogging only ones that make you feel good :)
speaking of Tumblr, this Tumblr is full of bedroom ideas. i would love to change my room around, so i always look at this website for little changes and imagine if i could change my whole room around.

i love tattoos and i can't explain why! i mean i have none, but i love the idea of them. i don't want to be a crazy tattoo lady, but i want one or two, as you may know from previous posts ;) so the blog Sometimes Sweet has Tattoo Tuesday and interviews people with tattoos every tuesday, so i like to read them, and some are super interesting!

this hair tutorial. i did this on New Years Day and it actaullyturned out really well! and i have short hair, so i was surprised!
Miley Cyrus. i love her. her style, her voice, her boyfriend, her style. yeah - i said her style twice.

and the children keep on singing


i love this song by VV Brown! i seriously can't stop listening to it. it's called Children - the video is kinda weird, but don't be fooled. the song is too good!

on another note, i have no patience for my combat boots. i just want them to be delivered already! this week would be the perfect week for them too. with finals and mid terms and whatnot. they would be like a prize for surviving the tests!

hope you all had a great Monday :)

Wreck This Journal

have you guys heard of this? i've been seeing a lot of it lately. it's called Wreck This Journal, and i looked it up and its actually a super cool idea! you know when you can never finish a journal? well this actually has prompt type things on each page telling you cool things to do to 'wreck it'.

wreck this journal cover

 like, it tells you to write one word over and over again on one page and then tells you to have a friend decorate another and to put used fruit stickers on another page. crazzy stuff like that. apperently it helps a lot with bordem!
i think i'm going to have to get it!

score 1 for travel!

so you may have read my post about what i want to do on 2012 on April's blog, if you haven't - check it out! anyway, it was about how i want to travel more. hence the title of this post! so today i spent the day at Alexandria, Virginia with my friend Abby and her parents!it's about 2 hours away from where i live, right outside of Washington DC.

it was such a cute place! it had tons of little shops that you wouldn't see anywhere else and it was such a nice day out! a perfect day for this 'trip' :)

we ate at a restaurant that was right on the water, and it was so nice!

then we went to an art 'museum'. it wasn't really a museum, but it showcased different artists art throughout the whole thing! there were different studios for each artist to work and show off what they can do. it was fabulous.

here it is at night! i bet it's wonderful during Christmas time.

so yeah! it was a great day! i will definitely be going back there. Abby and i decided that we want to move there ;)

YES please! i ordered these last night!! i'm so excited to get them!

i love this song! i know, kind of out of the ordinary... but its very good! did an of you hear about Ben Breedlove? so sad.

i can't stand bullying. it's another whole post, so in the mean time, look at this video, weep, and get ready for a rant about how much i can't stand it.

and take look at my tumblr!
