New Yawk City

Really cannot wait until this Saturday!! Why you ask? Because the language clubs at school are going to NYC for the day then going to Little Italy for dinner. I have been to Times Square several times, but never anywhere else, so I'm mostly excited for Little Italy.  
I can't wait to smell the roasting peanuts and go into Macy's, the M&M store and the billions of Forever 21 and H&M's!!! I feel like I'll be the tour guide to all of the fashion stores for everyone though, but oh well, I guess they just admire my style? Dunno, but I did find out that a bunch of the cheerleader/preppy chicks at school voted me 'Most Artistic' for the senior superlatives... a nice little surprise I guess no? 

P.S. My favorite Forever 21 in NYC is the one next to the disney store because it's like one story, but the other floors go down into the basement and there are like 2 or 3 in total <33
P.P.S. I now have Empire State of Mind stuck in my head lol.

You taste like whiskey when I kiss you

So I bought my very first moleskine a few days ago! I've already done a few projects or whatever one might call them.. the first one was a bunch of henna designs I threw together and the second is of Lady Gaga with a quote from her song Bloody Mary. I have the red moleskine by the way.
Also, we are starting our clay projects Monday FINALLY. Hm, what am I doing tomorrow.. 

  1. Going to a fall harvest bazaar 
  2. CAR SHOPPING (might be a brandy-new car and not used!!)
  3. Trying to figure out what I am going to play for my Tri-M audition/initiation -___-

Coffee or tea? Not fair, you can't just pick one!

So school started about a month ago and my schedule is still messed up.  Ugh. and my class ring keeps sliding upside down every time I type. I'm just full of problems today. I feel like I never have the inspiration for posts. Including the lack of a decent camera that doesn't die after two photos, I barely post anything that I feel a normal blog does. I don't know, maybe the days annoyances are just eating me alive? 
Anyway, in my 3-D design class we are starting to work with.. wait for it....... CLAY!! You have no idea how excited I am about this! I haven't worked with clay since elementary school when I made a pinch pot (I think that's what it's called) and a mayan pot. SO FUN. The down side is that my art teacher won't let us use the wheel but eh, I'm an independent study in his class, so maybe he'll let me use it? Dunno, but I can't wait to glaze it with pretty colors.  Haha the glaze makes me want a doughnut from dunkin... which just reminded me about my friend who is getting me an apple caramel doughnut for tomorrow morning because she is working the last shift at dunkin tonight. Rambling again, sowwy c:
I guess I can post some cool pottery pictures now? kk here it goes:

Ok, just had an epiphany, should I make all under the sea themed pottery for my portfolio or Alice in Wonderland themed?? Lemmeh knoww

P.S. Loving Cher Lloyd's With Ur Love right now!!

   I absolutely love living in New England, especially in (YOU GUESSED IT!!) fall!  The leaves change to fiery reds, oranges and yellows and crunch with every step.  Ugh and the smell!  It's just amazing!  If you have not smelled the leaves in fall, you are missing out on a major part of life.. not kidding.  But if you can't make it to NE to smell autumn... you can go to Bath and Body works and smell their autumn leaves candle!  Not kidding, it smells like NE in the fall. 
   Alright, enough about how much I love fall itself,  but I love the clothes.  So much layering, chunky sweaters, JEANS, knee high boots.  I will try to post a picture of my outfits every morning but I am usually running late soo let's see how this will work out haha.  I do have some outfits that I'll post later tonight.  But for now I have to finish up some chores and then get ready for work (or as I like to call it: the concentration camp) at 3.  


p.s. new banner coming soon!!

Always Remember 9/11

Today is the 10 year anniversary of the Twin Tower's collapse.  I remember being in grammar school when this happened,  I was about 8 years old in 2nd grade and the whole school was taken outside.  We stood in a circle, in silence, for those who passed.  It's really the only thing I remember from that day aside from me hoping my Aunt Sue who lived in NY was okay. 

P.S. She was, she didn't live anywhere near the city, but I didn't know that.

Penny Loafers??

Look at me, I am on a roll with these posts! Haha. Anyway, the play for school this year is Grease and we all have to buy oxfords to go with the theme.  But today I got a magazine in the mail from Delia's and while flipping through it, I found these leopard loafers which according to my mom and research were quite popular in the 1950's.  So, should I get them? They're quite adorable!  Even at $44.50 I wouldn't just wear them for the play I would use them for school, work, etc. so it's a win-win right?  Tell me what you think!

Floral Days

Shoes: Keds

I promised myself that I would not go on the computer today, but alas, I cannot stay away.  But I had quite an exciting day; my mom and I went to visit a man that is selling his car and I'm pretty sure I will buy it!! Yay! My first car! haha.  Oh and I think every day I will post one of my works of art for my AP Studio Art class in the fall :)

Mug from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
T-Shirt: H&M

So i haven't posted in a while :( so sad. Haha. But great news, well sorta good news I guess.  Well, I bought a Macbook Pro yesterday!  The bad news is that it is wicked $$, I have one job and I need a car before school starts on August 30th.  So yeah I am in quite the pickle.  I also barely have any experience with a mac so I am like soo confused.  For example, how do you save a picture from the internet and then put it as your background?? On a lighter note, I named my laptop Shakira lol, yes, Shakira.. but pronounced Shakida. Well, must be off and I guess get ready for work today because someone called me and wanted me to take their shift. Yay for me!.. not. Haha

Crosses and Vogue



The first time I saw this cover of Vogue last year, I have been in love with the cross sweater!! So when I went onto ASOS today and saw this dress I freaked out haha.. though it's a little out of my price range, it's still amazing!! I do still love the vogue one better because of all of the color, but hey, beggars can't be choosers. Buy it here. :D

Outlast Lipstain in 440 & Lashblast Volume
Both are Covergirl

New products that I bought from E.L.F. that finally came in today!

   OMG it's been so long, almost a month?!!  Well, I had exams, work etc. sooo I did not really have any time for blogging unfortunately.  But schools out so I can blog endlessly. I am so excited for the next school year seeing as I am now a senior! haha & the next band trip is to Penn, which probably won't be that great but for the first time EVER the Jazz bands are going on a trip!  We are either going to Louisianna or a cruise on the Bahama's... which will obviously result with a long blog post and amazing pictures.  Well I'm going to make dinner and watch The Audrey Hepburn Story I got from Netflix.


P.S. What is Midsummer?!

Fashion Of His Love - Lady Gaga

Summer is almost here and school's almost out!  I really cannot wait to be a senior, then maybe RISD?!  So anyway, my prom and the band trip was amazing.. like they usually are.  Yesterday my family and I went to a local parade and I got some antiques that I'll post later!

coup de coeur ♥

all images courtesy of The Vogue Diaries

1.  How did I just find out about Pixie Lott's amazing fashion sense? Ugh. I absolutely LOVE it! Especially how she always wears those neon orange/coral oxfords.. simply love them.  I just decided that I am going to inspire all of my trip looks by her :) By the way, I'm going on a band trip Thursday 5/12 to Monday 5/16. I can't waaaiiitttt! I haven't been on a band trip since Florida in 2009.  There is one every year, but last year they went to Washington D.C. so I didn't go because I had already gone to D.C. Where am I going? You'll have to wait and see ;) I'll upload my outfits when I get back, maybe I'll do it on Tuesday night seeing as it's my only free day to do anything that week!

2.  My busy week you ask, well, I get back Monday night from an 8-10 hour bus drive -___-, Tuesday is my day to myself unless I have to work, Wednesday I have my spring band concert, Thursday I am being initiated into the Language Honor Society pour le francais ;), Friday is my Junior Prom and then post prom runs into Saturday at 5 am.  So yeah, a busy week. Oh joy.. Although, Lady Gaga's new album Born This Way comes out the following Monday!! Sooo excited.  Propa Gaga also has all of the live performances from Madison Square Garden ready to download here :) enjoy.


P.S. Happy Mother's Day!! My dad and I made crepes for my mom when she came home from her other breakfast with my sister Nicole.... in the least, she stole my thunder of a Mother's Day breakfast haha

(although I haven't really looked at the sheet with the questions on it :S) Also today, Lady Gaga released her album cover and track list and there are only 10 days until my band trip! Haha I'm such a geek ;)

Hippy Much?

Oh my gosh!  I need this bag!!! I'm in love with western/hippie styles this season and this just satisfied my needs!  Good thing I just got a job!  It kind of resembles my shoulder bag that I got from a New York Aldo in December:

Dreaming With A Broken Heart - John Mayer

all images above from
my latest favorites for apartment decor!
1.  Hmm, almost three weeks since my last post? !!! I've been really busy though :( My honors english class just finished reading The Scarlet Letter and we are now writing an essay about Hester starting out as a victim and transforming herself into a heroine.  I finished my outline Wednesday night and brought it in early Thursday morning for her to make comments on (the final was due Friday morning) but when I went to class in the afternoon, she had graded it! Haha, I was shocked but hey, I was proud I got a 96 on it! Now we're doing the works cited (already done) and the intro/conclusion is due Wednesday... ughhh. Anyway, after work yesterday I walked over to Barnes and Noble to meet my mom (my work is in the same plaza as B&N). I had to get another book for my english class to read. She gave us a list and I instantly gravitated towards A Tree Grows in Brooklyn mainly because I ALWAYS see the poster for it in the cafe area of B&N. 

2.  So, about work... I got my first job a few days ago! I now work at DSW! Ahaha. I think I'm going back today to get a pair of Keds.  They're the eyelet ones :D

Mustache Nails and Coco Chanel

Def. finding a tutorial to do this!
yes, of course I had to add Gaga!
pictures from tumblr and weheartit
1.  Bonjour! How is everyone? I'm good, just stressing over a french project on Coco Chanel due tomorrow that I barely started :S.  I have to write everything that I am telling the class in french and I have to write a page I guess about Coco and then a worksheet.  The directions weren't very clear lol.  So, I have like half of her bio thing written.. woops! Anyway, March is almost over! Why am I so excited? WE HAVE NO DAYS OFF IN MARCH! ugh!

2.  The pictures above are just some inspiration... I feel like im turning hippie-ish.  I've always LOVED fringe, feathers, indian wear, and dream catchers so I feel like my summer will be full of that!  Oh, and lace and florals.. naturally! ;) Maybe even a little neon too? I don't know yetttt.  What about you guys?  What are your must-haves for spring/summer?  I also found this song on youtube today called Mouthwash by Kate Nash.. ever heard of it? It's ah-mazing!
