A few blogs that are making their way onto my blog list… Check them out!
(Kate Moss looks so much better with some more weight on her!)
Pictures taken by me from… Nylon March and April and Cosmopolitan March. Some favourites.
I LOVE this look… Definitely looking for a light coloured blazer and boho-esque dress
Looove this dress!
I only care what’s “in” if it means stores will keep selling it. haha But I really like these items.
I especially love the dress and skirt
I definitely want one of these hats
I made pants like this… but they fell apart. haha Tip: Do not over bleach!
I’m in love with these tank tops… I thought they’d be easy to make but I’m having trouble!
sundress over a button up shirt? genius!
(red lips are never out!)
Spring has definitely arrived in So Cal! And with it is 70 degree weather. Oh, bliss.
I’m still fighting this cold but I managed to workout today, go to the store for some things* and read the latest Nylon in at the park while sipping on lemonade. It’s a rough life, I know. Off to do laundry now!

*I bought this (I think) adorable vase I’ve been eyeing for a while from Big Lots for only $3. Not going to lie, I love discount stores. I picked the flowers from a bush outside my apartment- they’re all over the place here.
Last night I almost went to the hospital because my ear hurt SO badly. It was the worst amount of pain I’ve ever felt for, you know, longer than a few minutes (it lasted hours). I felt sure it would pass though so my husband helped me get to sleep and sure enough the pain went away hours later. Today it’s just plugged and very annoying/semi painful. :(
I did make a delicious cocktail of sorts today to cheer myself up, haha. Malibu rum, orange juice and pineapple juice- so delicious! It’s a beautiful day out too. Spring is sure here.

I’ll have to find a straw hat or something now that I’m in Cali… this black fedora makes my head hot.
Why don’t you…
Wear hot pink
Stay in bed a little longer
Cut holes into one of your shirts
Hang a ton of pictures
Wear your hair up during the day as if it were night time
Wear a prime colour
(Domino Magazine, Sex and Coffee blog and I honestly forget the rest- sorry!)
My parents and youngest sister were visiting this past week so I got to do a lot of touristy things with them like Disneyland, California Adventure Park and the San Diego Zoo! Plus a tiny bit of shopping (I bought a new top from Forever 21) and a larger amount of tanning on warm beaches. Wonderful.
I’m a frugal shopper so this definitely appeals to me but I’m hoping it’ll appeal to others as well. I can’t even bring myself to shop at The Gap nevermind buying an Alexander Wang piece (as much as I’d love to)… I see nothing wrong with doing so in general but I never feel as though I can afford it. How weird does that sound? Yeah. Obviously I can afford The Gap! I don’t know why I’m using The Gap as an example… My problem is I end up with shitty quality clothes but you know, they do still last quite a while. I like doing DIYs, buying new things, getting rid of stuff in my closet and not worrying about “wrecking” my clothes… so shopping inexpensively makes sense to me. Not to mention I already get shoppers guilt any time I shop for myself!
Generally, I shop at places like Forever 21 and Old Navy. Honestly, I don’t shop very often anymore. I love places like Urban Outfitters and American Apparel but never live near them and when I do get to one, I never seem to have much money to spend. I think if I went to those places more regularly I would actually buy from them. Anyway, the point of all this babbling is that I’ve decided to feature some clothing from stores that offer inexpensive clothing. I think Target is a pretty obvious one but I was surprised to see how many cute things were at less popular places like Kmart and Walmart! Seriously….cute. I’ll try to do a post like this every now and then.
(I really want a pair of pumps and these have a less than 2″ heel which is perfect for me!)
(I never go in Kmart so I had no idea they had such a selection)
