Hi guys and gals! The stranger that is I am back…finally and with good news – I’m done with my first degree at FIDM!! *bows for applause, waves and smiles* I finished my Associate of Arts in Visual Communications about two weeks ago, and this week I am starting on my Bachelor’s in Business Management. It’s a great feeling to have such a major milestone completed, and it feels even better to only have to be in LA one day a week since I am able to take some classes online now.
Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all had a great week. Mine was pretty decent, and interesting..to say the least. I took the train to LA for the first time since my car is out of commission for a little while . It seems that driving back and forth to LA from San Diego (roughly 500 miles per week) isn’t the best thing for a car lol. I kept saying I was going to take the train, but my schedule at the time never really allowed for it. But I’m not complaining, because she held out until the last day of class before she quit. Well, she isn’t dead…just needs a new clutch (which is NOT cheap). But I love (and need) my car, so it shall be fixed soon.
Anyway, on to the actual reason for this post. I’ve been meaning to do this post over a year now (for shame lol) but I kept forgetting about it. Since it’s raining = no outfit pics, I figured the time is now!
If you are like me – which I’m sure you are in at least some ways since you read my blog – then you HATE living with the plain white walls that come along with being in an apartment. Well, in some places (mine included) you are allowed to paint, but you have to paint the walls back once you move out.
Hi all and happy new year!! I took a month long break and went home to be with my family and enjoy the holidays. Now that those are all over…it’s back to business – school, work, internship, life in general. With that said, I’m having a “cleaning out my closet” sale. I have wayyyy too many things (I know, I know…impossible right?! lol) and I figured I’d open up my closet to you all. As of now there is a little of everything – clothing, shoes, accessories, purses, etc. I will constantly be adding more items as I get rid of things – so check back often.
Like my page on facebook and check out the sale!
Thanks and happy shopping!!
Happy Friday! I decided to start my weekend off with a cute new manicure (which makes no sense since it’ll be raining and I’m not going out lol). I mentioned last post that I hadn’t done my nails in a while – and by a while I mean like almost 3 months – yikes!
I bought this new neutral/nude color called Don’t Make A Scene and loved it right away. I actually planned to do a look with it and this other copper glitter polish that I got, but the leopard won out today. This was super easy to do: start with a fresh base coat of your main color, paint circles of varying sizes using the pink (or whatever you choose), then do random outlines with white then black (or whatever you choose) to complete the look. Have a good weekend!
Hey there! So, it’s been a while since I done a manicure post. Since I am currently rocking bare nails, I wanted to show you guys this one that I did a little while back. I started with the Color Club polish in Age of Aquarius and then painted the tips and down to the center with the Sally Hansen Gem Crush in Blingtastic. Very simple to do, but it has a huge impact. I got compliments on this every day that I wore it.
Today I went by the Kobe Swap Meet which is held every weekend here in San Diego. I didn’t really go for anything specific this time – just wanted to check out the scene. I did find two brothers for my sock monkey George and a couple more games for my Nintendo – Tetris, Tecmo Bowl, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Double Dragon. I was so stoked (yes stoked) to see such a large selection…they’re pretty hard to find outside of the internet. I also stopped by Enigma Piercing Salon to check on switching out my industrial, and ended up leaving with something else. More on that another day…
Hi guys. I know, I know…and I apologize – truly. The last few months have been very trying to say the least. I have been wanting to write this post for weeks now, but every time I did the words wouldn’t come. It’s not necessarily that they have come tonight either; however, I feel that this is long overdue.
I know that thus far, my blog has mostly been about fashion, nails…a little bit of this and that. I’m not really sure why it happened, but at some point I became very disinterested in it all. I wasn’t in the mood to play dress up anymore…wasn’t in the mood to blog about it…I just wasn’t anything. I felt in some ways I had begun to box myself in, and I didn’t like it. There is so much more to me than cute outfits and cool nails, but I felt as if my blog wasn’t really a reflection of me as a whole. I would come on and do a post, talk about the good day I had, maybe mention a couple of projects or something that I was working on, and that would be it. Typically on the bad days, there either wouldn’t be a post or I would post about something that didn’t require me to step in front of the camera. But..in doing so – I feel as though I’ve slighted you guys (and myself).
Some of my favorite bloggers and especially You Tubers are the ones who aren’t afraid to put their whole selves out there for you to see – the days when they are sad, hurt, mad…it all gets documented. For some of their followers, I’m sure it is deemed “too much” – but to me, it makes me relate to them that much more. Everyone has bad days, everyone gets hurt, everyone cries (including me). Am I saying that I will be using my blog as my personal melancholic journal? Absolutely not – but I plan to do everything possible to take myself out of this box I seem to have walked into. Yes I will still write about fashion, nails, and whatever else, but I will also blog about my brother when I am missing him, or my doggie when I am missing her, or whatever else. I am real – I have great days, bad days, fun times, highs, lows, and everything in between – and that is what I want to share with you all.
When I started typing a few minutes ago, I had no clue where I was going with this…but what you’ve just read is what came out. No editing or rewriting – because I wanted it to be as authentic as possible (so forgive any spelling errors if you catch them lol). I’m back..
Hi ladies and gents – still alive…still commuting. One month down, one more to go until this quarter is over and I get a break from all this (thank goodness!). I hope all is well with you guys. I really do miss blogging – so I wanted to at least show you guys a few of the hairstyles I’ve been wearing lately. It’s not fashion – but it’s still a big part of who I am.
Hi ladies and gents. Yes, I’m still alive – sorry for the lack of posts. I started summer classes last week…in LA. What’s the big deal you ask? Well, I live about 2.5 hours away in San Diego. Needless to say, I’ve been a little preoccupied. I have some great posts planned soon, so please don’t think I’ve forgotten the blog. I haven’t – I’m just trying to get things straightened out. I hope you all are doing ok…see you soon!
Hey guys! It’s been a while but I am back with another featured guest – Andrea of Drea on TV, Love the Skin You’re In and Sweetie’s Kitchen. This lady is definitely one of my favorite’s on youtube because she is hilarious, smart, and obviously not too hard on the eyes lol. And not only does she have a great sense of self awareness and style, but she can bake a mean cheesecake (which I will be purchasing ASAP! )
**LOVING that hair….owwwww!! lol
How would you describe your style?
My style is a little bit of tomboy mixed with sass, pink nail polish and big hair.
