Derrick's Graduation

How exciting!! My little brother is now a high school graduate. I remember when he was little he ran around with toy cars in the air. And now he's all grow up. I can't believe just 4 years ago I graduated from high school, and now its his turn.

He was able to overcome so many obstacles and today is his day to shine. Now he starts on a brand new journey to college, I can't wait for the many positive things that will come his way!

On me
bag: Chanel
sweater: Guess
tank: Marciano by Guess
jeans: Guess (I wear a lot of Guess can you tell? Haha i use to work there!)

Cloud Gazing and a story

I think I'm obsessed with clouds. I just love taking pictures of them. I don't care what time of the day it is, I just like taking pictures. Haha. 

A little after 10am it started to rain, not the light drizzly rain. I'm taking about the really windy rain, where you're swirling your umbrella at all directions, to the point where your umbrella might flip. And that my friends, is nasty rain. You do not want to be under that rain period.

And of course, the rain does stop after a bit, thank god, I wore flats to work today, and I did not want my feet to be cold. Eek!

I love how the sky changes color, it can be anywhere from powder blue, to ocean blue. You just never know with the sky.

So let me share a little interesting story from work today, FYI I might start ranting just a heads up!

Ok, I don't know if you guys watch Glee, the fox TV series.I don't just throwing that out there. Well today Lea Michele and Amber Riley two of the cast mates were shopping at Juicy today. Honestly, I did not know who they were. I didn't know what the commotion was about until these random girls starting asking for autographs and pictures.

Honestly, Lea Michele is a straight up bitch. And she's really rude. She barked at some girls who wanted autographs to leave her alone because she was shopping. Ok, I understand you want privacy but you don't have to be rude. One of my coworkers had ask for a photo, and she was like "are you even allowed to ask me that?" I mean really?!

I mean I know your famous and what not, but I'm sorry we're not in LA I don't see a million paparazzi's chasing you up and down the streets of San Francisco. A few autographs and photos will not you hurt. The way she was talking to her fans was not acceptable.

I guess fame really does get to your head.

Anyways, I had a short shift today and I saw these while walking to the bus, and i LOVE love love tulips and they were so pretty! I just had to have them. Haha, talk about impulse shopping!

It's been a long week, I'm so glad the weekend is almost here!

Casual Tuesday

Let me begin by saying I woke up at 2pm in the afternoon today. Honestly, I did not think I would sleep in sooo late. I mean I slept at 4am, but that's just kinda crazy! I grabbed a quick bite, and was watching Khloe & Lamar. Haha, do you ladies watch them? Or the Kardashians?

A little past 4pm, I get a call from a girlfriend asking if I wanted to hang out with some old friends, catch a flick and dinner. Why not? Movie was at 6:30pm and I was rushing like some mad women, because I practically spent all day in bed. haha.

We ended up watching pirates of the Caribbeans, mhm Johnny Depp is drop dead sexy! The movie was a little long, not gonna lie sitting on my tush for a while did kinda hurt. Have you noticed all the hollywood movies are getting longer and longer? Whatever happened to just 90 minute movies?

As usual I never dress for San Francisco night time weather. I feel like it's too much of a hassle, I'm hot I'm cold! I just can't stay warm. My staples for the evening Juicy couture tracksuit in ballet slipper, I love the bling j pull. My Marc Jacobs cashmere scarves, I love these to death! I really need one in every color. I currently have 5! And my Chanel WOC, my quick go to bag!

Goodnight ladies!

Bubblegum Pink & Canary Yellow

My nails have been bare for the longest time, and I did not know what color to paint them neither! I wanted something fun, bright, and cheery. The result

I don't bother buying full size nail polish anymore, because I never really use the same color twice, unless i LOVE the color. The mini ones are perfect, plus I don't feel like I'm wasting my money if I never use it again. I pick up most of my mini OPI nail polishes at Sephora.

I've been using OPI top coat, but I haven't been like the consistency of it. Or maybe its just the bottle I have?Do you ladies have any good recommendation for a top coat?

Casual Thursday

I love waking up in the morning and starring in the sky. Clouds remind me of big fluffy marshmallows in the sky. I love how they change colors, and move across the sky. I'd rather have clouds in the sky, then starring at nothing. Haha.

So I was on a shopping ban for 3 weeks. Well that broke today! I was trying to save money, but that didn't go too well. But in my defense everything was cute! And I spent only $80 at least I didn't drop like a grand or something!
String Top: Forever 21 $10.80, bottoms $9.80 Shoes: Steven Madden
By far the cutest swim suit I came across! I love the colors, perfect for summer. And I'm a sucker for bows, and I love the bow details, I just couldn't resist plus they were on sale, SCORE! And I i started going through my most used shoes, and I go through many of them

You can never have enough shoes <3

Spending the day in PJ's

Finals are official over! I turn in my last paper this morning and I'm relieved. Summer is official here. Too bad I can't say the same for the weather.  Looks like I'll be stuck in gloomy town for the next few days. On gloomy days I don't feel too productive I just wanna stay in bed and roll around like a bear. I took these in the guest bed room earlier

Top: Forever 21 Shorts: Juicy Couture Socks: Juicy Couture

Even though it is a freezing 55 degrees outside I don't like to be bundled up. Lately I've been obsessed with knee high socks. Oh my god, where the hell have I been?! They keep my legs and feet super warm! I got these as a present and never wore them because I never thought they would be practical for me. Sooo comfy!

The guest bedroom is rather small, boring, and white. I think I'll make a trip to ikea to spruce the place up a bit. Maybe a paint job and some framed photos will do the trick.

I think I'll spend the rest of the night on Netflixs. I like ice cream on cold and gloomy days, do you?

Crazy for stripes

I cannot stand this cold weather. It's hot, and then it's cold. Today was a very chilly day in the city and it got much worse when I got on campus. Finals are 90% done, I'm excited because summer's screaming my name! Before I bundled off and headed to class I wore an orange tank to brighten up this gloomy weather. And I can always count on my converses to skip from one class to another!

Pocket Tank: Juicy Couture
Zippered Leggings: Guess
Shoes: Converses
Ring: Juicy Couture

I'm a morning person so I prefer taking my classes earlier in the morning when I'm wide awake. But I take waaaaay to long getting ready. Which could explain why I miss the bus occasionally. Haha. I miss you 70 degree weather please come back! Pretty please?

Fitting Room Fun

I usually can't stand trying anything! I don't like how the girls in front of me have a bazillion things to try on. But I don't like to return things neither due to snooty customer service. I mean why can't things that super duper cute on hangers but just as cute when you try them on? Hmm on a recent shopping I was able to try on several things without waiting. Some things fit cute, and some not so much.

Cardigan: Old Navy
Tank: Guess
Shorts: Juicy Couture
Shoes: Bakers
While working I love how when its slow we're encouraged to try things on :) haha one of the perks of working in retail! These shorts are super cute, however they did not fit on my 23inch waist :( Juicy you need to tailor to smaller clientele. Or maybe I'm just too petite for Juicy? After getting off work early I had four hours to kill before the store meeting @ night, I ended up at H&M because they had tons of bikinis for $5! I found some more shorts to try on!
Coat: Guess
Tank: Guess
Shorts: H&M
Shoes: Mia
Haha! I think I'm currently obsessed with yellow! I do not think yellow is very flattering color on me because I am on the fairer side. But I could not help but try these on! They came in a lovely lavender color (which by the way I'm obsessed with!) did not have my size :( Yellow adds a splash of color makes me think FUN IN THE SUN!
Sweater: Zara
Tank: Guess
Jeans: Guess
Shoes: Mia

Oh man I thought this was the cutest little sweater from Zara! It has buttons on the shoulders, it's 3/4 sleeve and you can unbutton the buttons! I still do not understand why I didn't get this!?

Happy Monday everyone!

Lesson learnt: Pay attention where you're going

Hmm we've all been there not many of us pay attention where were going. Last night I had to meet a friend for lunch at 24th and Church after I got off of work. I have never taken public transportation in that area so you'd figured I'd pay attention right? WRONG! I was sitting on the train playing games and blasting music tuning the world out. Well I thought I heard 24th so I sprung up and got off only to see I was @ 18th street. And not knowing where I was I figure no biggie! I'll just walk til I see something familiar which resulted in me climbing two fat hills in heels. In the end I found the place and my legs were burning. Did I learn a lesson? YES! Will I pay attention next time? You can bet on that!

I do what a beach bum does best

No clouds in sight, warm winds tangling between my hair, summer dress and wedges, it feels like summer <3

Cardigan: Express
Top: H&M
Skirt: H&M
Shoes: BP for Nordstrom
Bag: Chanel

Rant of the day: Boys

Boys are trouble makers. They say stupid things, they get annoying, and they're flat out frustrating (well sometimes)! I mean ladies we've all had our fair share of boy problems haven't we? Relationships are often hard to maintain, its something you work at, you can't just give up without fighting for. Boys make our hearts beat, they make us smile and giggle, and sometimes they make us want to rip their hearts out. If they could step a mile in our shoes I don't think they'd treat us the way they do. But in the end I still love my little butthead <3

I wish I had a beach day or bumming around the grass, except I'm stuck indoors til 7pm tonight maybe I'll catch whatevers left of the sun!
