Summer fun, my ass.

Got sick again AGAIN... third time in less than two months, I believe. Basically, my immune system wants me to die, ugh. Along with allergies and this relentless pulsing headache and back pain, I've just been forced to live like a hermit in my house and doing quiet things that don't bring back the headache.

Only possible good side is that my boyfriend seems to relieve most, if not all, of the pain of being sick. I spent the day with him yesterday and I felt perfectly fine, until I had to leave. Isn't that funny? Haha...

Anyhow, just wanted to do a quick post and remind you guys to take a look at the SHOP BLOG... the items listed can only stay up for a little bit more, so please shoot me an email if you'd like to buy! More sale prices have been posted (aka lowered prices!), so check it out now. :)

Thanks guys. xo

I guess I'm IT!

So I was tagged an... embarrassingly long time ago by Rissa. It really is embarrassing how long ago it was. Oh well... better late than never?

What is your current obsession?
Evanescence. I've never really gotten over the sheer beauty of Amy Lee's voice.

What is your weirdest obsession?
Hmm... has to be... ketchup. I eat ketchup with a lot of things (but never straight, hm!)

What are you wearing today?
A gross old t-shirt and some random Free People shorts I found for three dollars. I'm really a hobo.

Why is today special?
Because I just found out I still have a job. YUS!

What would you like to learn to do?
I would like to learn how to sing properly and not just go by ear... to play guitar and drums, also properly... erm, to create a successful shop blog and get rid of some of my crap. Alleviate some of my magpie tendencies. A bunch of stuff, there's never enough time, really.

If you could meet a fictional character (books, movies…) who would that be?
My inner fangirl screams Edward Cullen.

What’s the last thing you bought?
A load of stuff, for cheap too! My favorite has to be these distressed Kira Plastinina shorts with the perfect pleating for my body, though they make my long legs look terribly stubby. But what else can I do!

What are you listening to right now?
Old Evanescence, I really do love Amy Lee.

What is your favorite weather?
If I had to answer this question related to fashion/clothing, I'd probably say cold cold cold, so I get to layer and add lots of texture into an outfit. Warm weather (especially in California) limits a lot of what you can wear.... like, it basically gets to a point where it's just an unnecessary amount of suffering is involved when you're wearing anything BUT a tank top/t-shirt and shorts combo. Non-fashion-related, I would say 85%+ overcast days with a light breeze and it's just perfect to wear shorts or a light sweater or whatever. And yes, I am disgustingly specific. :)

What do you think about the person who tagged you?
Her photography is fucking tight.

If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?
Someplace in Europe is always safe to say. First place off the top of my head would be Greece. Who DOESN'T love Greece? Greece, oh Greece... I'll go fantasize and such now.

Favorite vacation spot?
Hm, I don't get to vacation much... but I always do enjoy impromptu road trips!

What would you like to have in your hands right now?
Money. My bank account is dying.

What would you like to get rid of?
About half of my closet, and my sick need to keep everything that passes into my hands.

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
Honestly, I'd probably just go hang out with my boyfriend. Or how about this, kidnap him and we go to... Paris!

Which language do you want to learn?
Spanish, just for practicality's sake (due to living in California, I mean). Better Chinese (I only know basics). American Sign Language, I only know the alphabet and a few words (just try me! I'll introduce myself and everything :D). And French, I've always wanted to learn French.

What did you dream of last night?
Oh, I never remember anything from my dreams anymore. I technically didn't even sleep last NIGHT...

One thing that you would snitch out of someone’s closet, with no regrets?
Aghhh any of Lady Gaga's crazy geometric dresses. Or a pair of her shades... oh shit, no it'd be that disco stick. Erm, sterilized, please...

What’s your favorite piece of clothing in your closet?
This totally legit drapey tulip skirt thing that was probably ripped off of some designer but I found in some little trendy boutique, forgotten in the clearance rack. Or this super comfy tank that is just light enough to keep cool, but not so sheer that it reveals everything. Everyone needs one of these. I got a size up (medium) and it's perfectly slouchy.

What is your dream job?

Personal aspirations at the moment?
Getting the shop blog off the ground (geez, I just keep plugging)... cleaning my room (which for me is a much more gargantuan task than it seems to most people)...

If you had a time machine, which time would you like to revisit?
Ancient Rome or Greece.

Your favourite pet?
:( I was never able to have pets when I was younger because of the deadly allergies I would have to fur. I've gotten over most of it, it's mainly just the usual pollen and such now... but I've always wanted like, a freaking golden retriever haha. I COULD get a pet now but it would be a bit useless and I doubt college dorms would allow me to bring a pet, and no one in my family would want to take care of it.

If you had to eat one dish for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Most likely pasta. I don't know what it is... but I love it. I could probably eat it everyday.

1. Respond and rework: answer the questions on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your own invention, add one more question of your own.

2. Tag eight other un-tagged people. The people I’ve tagged are: Starr, Charmaine, Stylish, Anya, and whoever else wants to do this!

mad world

Been working on it all day (just about), but I just listed up tons of new items onto the SHOP BLOG, in addition to updating information and such. Check it out, please? :) Here are a few of my faavorites... (I wish they fit me, sigh)

Click the photo to see item!

ruffled crop top

pinstripe blouse

seersucker shorts

I'm sad about posting these items up because I love them so much, but they've been sitting around in my closet for so long that I know someone else out there can appreciate them more than I can! I'll be listing more items soon enough (pinky swear) so check back soon!

Also, I just saw the most amazing photographs of the upcoming Burton version of Alice in Wonderland... even if the movie turns out to be crap (but I really doubt you can go wrong with Johnny and Helena), at least we can sit back and remember how... fucking tight these photos were. Are. Anyhow, they're awesome.

Stunning. Makeup experiments anyone? :)

It's just about 3 in the morning and I'm gonna go... conk out on my bed.

Remember, visit SHOP TOSPENDTIME! xo

P.S. I'm getting a bit bored with my header. Is anyone else also bored enough that they'd like to make me one? Send it to my email!

Whole night of fever

Lykke Li tee, black spandex shorts, Seychelles wedges

I got to see a bunch of friends that I graduated high school with last night, and it was a blast! I figured it was the perfect time to try the whole intriguing bike short deal Stylish posted up on Chictopia (though granted, I had to opt for my old black ones from volleyball)... definitely comfortable and easy for a night of dancing!

I love having friends that know how to have a good time while being sober... it seems like way too many of my peers nowadays need alcohol or other various substances to have fun. How disappointing.

Anyhow, to sum up... my friends are awesome. And driving around at 2 in the morning with nothing but the cold air through the window while singing along to Miss Gaga at the top of my lungs can certainly keep a girl awake. Exhilarating!

I have to literally ban myself from shopping, but I am compelled to find the perfect romper... It's proven pretty difficult for my body type (short torso and looong legs! help!), but this one looks promising! Any suggestions??

P.S. In case you were wondering, the pink shade from my last last post was a cheapo pinky red lipstick I found at home, layered over MAC's California Dreamin'.

Dance real crazy.

Indoctrinate 'em early, I tell ya.

Here's to living in PINK

AA cotton spandex dress, Payless pumps.

Real quick, here's what I wore to graduation. I kept it fairly simple, especially since it was such a nice spring day. Obviously, I was really classy too when it kept slipping down and showing my bra. I must've said it a million times that day, but yes, that's my bra, and you know what just let it hang out because I don't care. I'm graduating. Er so yeah... haha.

And why don't bloggers smile in their photos anymore? Or rather, not so often. I enjoy smiles a lot... it's one of my favorite features! :)

So I was messing around with makeup (strangely enough) and I somehow found my perfect shade of bubblegum pink lipstick. Definitely barbie pink but just rosy enough to not look so weird against my tan skin (you porcelain ladies are lucky!). But then again... the tanner I am, the better, right? It's BARBIE pink after all.

I hope your summers have been good! :D I haven't really done much besides hang out with the bestie and boyfriend, but it's nice to just have time to be with people, instead of stressing out about school. Speaking of school, I got an A in AP Lit! Usually less than 10, maybe around 5 people get an A in all of the classes, so it's a big deal. *celebratory dance*

Maybe I should make a dancing vlog! xoxo

Today is a big day

faking fashion

I can't believe it... but I'm graduating high school today.

2) Awww.

That basically sums it up. I hope your summer days are sweet.
