Pictures of the Week!

This made me giggle! I've never seen my name on a package of food; insanity!

Er. Silly... Silly girls...

Just goin' to Scottsdale!

Went to a fashion show at Scottsdale Fashion Square! This is a back to school look by Betsey Johnson.

Another Betsey Johnson look!

Sliders from Modern Burger that were pretty great!

Just chillin' at Starbucks makin' friends jealous with Green Tea Lemonade yumminess!

Snazzy vintage blouse and my lovely pink skirt.

My friend mixing three prints! The top is striped and the skirt has two patterns; crazy sauce!

Picture from Disneyland that makes me giggle. Bad score though... 

The best chicken gumbo crepes from Disneyland! <3

My mom's vegetable dish from Disneyland! It looked amazing and tasted pretty good too!

Love this edit of the canopies. 

Mint julep; the most delicious thing ever.

Me and my snazzy Disneyland hat.


I look so happy. Eh. Yay before school jtters.

This top reminds me of Princess Jasmine from Aladdin!

If anyone feels like getting a little steam out, anyone wanna just come by and shoot me in the head? T'would be much apprecated.

Being under an extreme load of pressure with no time to blog is extremely irksome and I apologize that there hasn't been any posts since before I left for Disneyland! I think I'll do a few lists in this post and I'm going to try and post more often, setting aside half a hour or so a day; let's see what happens!

Beauty Faves

1. Verbana Soap- Cost Plus World Market
2. Sheer pink/coral lipstick- MAC Cosmetics
3. Ralph Perfume- Ralph Lauren
4. Gel eyeliner- Smashbox
5. Creme Brulee body wash- Philosophy

Fashion Wants and Wishes

2. bright, solid colored pleated maxi skirt
3. glitter/sequin sweater top
4. Doc Marten boots
5. Oxfords
7. Lace up oxford pumps

I reall want to dye my hair brown. Like, Leighton Meester brown. I've been a red-head for the last few years and I think I may wanna try something a little more classic. I may even go with a bang again, who knows?

Off to the D23 Expo and tweeting!

Yes, it's true! I'm off to Disneyland again! But this time, it's for a thing called the D23 Expo! It's an expo about all things Disney and amazing! I'm really excited, but that also means I won't be able to blog!

So here comes Twitter!

Follow me @tulipstokissyouwith and I'll be posting all about the expo and hopefully my outfits!

So I'll hopefully talk to you all soon! <3

Yes, I'm alive!

Hey guys! Golly! It's been a terribly long week! I can't say it wasn't fun, but it sure was hectic. From going to the movies 3 times to getting 20 pound text books to taking random pictures of things I encounter... It's definitely been interesting!
So! I now present...

My Week in Pictures
...And little snippets of stories in between...
Out of order.
That's awkward.

{Our oh so lovely literature book that we get! This baby is bigger than a Harry Potter book AND the print is smaller! ... Feel free to kill me now!}

{IHOP syrup that I wanted to eat, I was so hungry! I had pancakes for the first time in months on Friday after I saw Glee! 3D! which was actually pretty spiffy. My friends and I were being quite obnoxious and got told to be quiet a few times but at least we were singing on pitch!}

{Awesome veggie sushi from this cute little place called Sushi Kee! It was pretty darn tasty AND there's a hidden mickey in it; it was so meant for me!}

{New makeup!!! I got a cream color that's great as highlighter, blush and lip tint! I got a lipstick that's this pretty, natural peach color called "Hush" that has excellent wear and a light powder!}

{Had this on Saturday! A large cup of fries is way too much for two people, even when one eats a lot, you know that? But this place is too darn good!}

{Need. To. See. This. Movie. The book was amazing. I cried myself to sleep on the plane going home from Europe. But I don't get to see it for another two weeks though, because I'll be in California next weekend for the D23 Expo! Anybody else going?}

{MAC Makeover! Whoooo! Senior pictures here I come.}

{We saw The Smurfs today, which was a pretty cute movie! Or should I say "smurftastic"? I will openly admit that I squealed when Tim Gunn came into a scene. He said a line that he always says in Project Runway and a girl a few rows in front of me and I were the only two laughing and we both laughed for a good two minutes at the least. She is SO gonna be my new best friend. That was priceless.}

Outfits from the week that reminded me to actually take pictures of them!

{Cardigan in black from Target}
{Paisley top from Lucky Brand Jeans}
{Green vintage maxi skirt with pockets from my costume chest}
{pleather belt from Walmart}
{Cuff from who knows where}
{Sandals from Clarks}
{Backpack from Urban Outfitters}
{Smile courtesy of being able to wake up at 6:45 instead of 5:15}

Oh, hey first day of school! This is called Dani is a lazy hippie bohemian lovechild who doesn't even wear nice clothes the first day of school. Definition of Dani: Lazy loser. What's up ya'll?


{Top in black from mom}
{Colorful printed skirt from mom's closet}
{Turqouise necklace from mom's jewelry box}
{Pearls ditto}
{Feather extension from Forever 21}
{Brown pleather belt from Walmart}
{Black strappy wedges from Target}

Can I explain how much I adore this look? I'm usually not one for bright colors, but this skirt is pretty awesome. I rocked it last night and was like BAM! Catwalk pro girl.
Well, that's how I saw it, anyways.


My "little sister" Alyssa and I at the movies today. I really do love this girl. She's been the best friend to me since my first day of fourth grade when I got on that bus and was the quiet girl... now look at me! The four year age difference won't ever keep us apart, we're essentially sisters and now she's back in Arizona for good, as good as good can be, and that's just making my year.
Love ya little sis!

RJoaz Gallery

{Via: RJoaz Gallery}

Love this etsy shop! You should really check it out! They have adorable jewelry and collectible pieces that are just awesome. They're putting new stuff up everyday and it just gets better and better! I'll be honest, it's actually my mom's shop (and I help... a lot), so I am kind of a plug, but I wear these types of pieces all the time, I also force them to make me stuff that I love wearing everywhere. So, if I'd wear it, then it must be pretty dang quality!

I'd just really appreciate it if you guys checked it out!

August 5th Adventures!

:A Day in Review of Pictures:
{My adorable baby girl. <3 Don't know what I'd do without her!}

{The awesome dinosaur sculpture outside the Phoenix Art Museum!}
{Phoenix Art Museum!}
 :Outfit for the day:
{Lace babydoll dress from H&M}
{Jean vest from Germany}
{Teal cami}
{Jeans from Elle for Kohls}
{Randon bracelets}
{Nude wedges from Target}

We went to First Friday tonight and had lots of fun! First Friday is where a bunch of artists get together and put up their work for sale all at once from 6-10 PM and the Phoenix Art Museum is open for free! It was my first time and I had an absolutely great experiment. We started at the museum, where I was displeased to find that the fashion exhibit was closed! I seriously almost started crying, it's my favorite exhibit other than the modern art! So, in lieu, we just checked out the modern art and the miniatures (which are awesome rooms that are based on real rooms all over the world at a one inch: unit scale!) and then we were off to check out some galleries!

So, long story short, the galleries were great! I found a vintage shop that was open that had a $5 vintage bin and I got two pieces out of it! A great men's tweed blazer and a navy blouse with a bow on it! I'm quite happy with my purchase! 

Well, seeing as it's 1:35 AM and I only got three hours of sleep last night, I should probably get to bed! So, to those reading who still haven't gone to sleep, good night! And to those reading from now on, hope you have a lovely day!

Polyvore Collections, Pictures and News... Oh my!

{My "little sister" Alyssa and I. She's like my little sis cause' I've known her since she was five and we've kind of been best friends ever since. She calls me one of her role models, but I consider that flattery. She's wearing my shirt, my belt and my favorite feather extension; silly girl. She just moved back to AZ after moving to Washington for a couple years, so we've spent a nice bit of time together in the past week!}

{I forgot to post this picture a few days ago! This is a picture of me and one of my best friends Britt! It's from my friend's 18th birthday party and we're sippin' some of that delicious kool-aid!}

Now, for my news!

I am now the proud owner of an iPhone4! My Droid keeled over and this was my first choice for a replacement! I've wanted an iPhone for a couple years now and I'm happy I finally have my hands on one! It's great! I love how easy it is to use, especially how I can coordinate it with my macbook; that's especially handy! 

I really need a case for it though! I got a quick one to probably return from Walmart, but found out, once it was out of the package, that it was definitely not gonna even close to protect my phone! So, I'm going to the Verizon store tomorrow (hopefully) to get one that won't give me the chance of breaking my phone! 

Another special thing is happening tomorrow! I'll be working all day at the school for drama paperwork and painting and organizing, but then we're going to "First Friday" which is where all these artists and jewelry makers set up shop all over Phoenix so you can shop and browse! It's really a sight to see and I'm really excited to be going! Yay art!

Now, for that title of mine!

You see the far right set? That's mine! I'm so wowed that I was put in one of Polyvore's collections! Much less, the Principles of Print Collection! That set is part of my entry to have a chance to be a guest editor for Glamour! Can you even believe that chance? I want it so badly! I love doing Q&A and blogging, obviously, so it's a perfect fit! I just feel really lucky to even make it into a hand-picked collection out of hundreds of sets! It's an awesome feeling!

I gotta new pair of shoes today! They're absolutely GORGEOUS!! You know what I love?
That Nordstrom's Dolce Vita line, Baker's and Target all carry essentially the same shoe. I mean, really, could you tell me the difference? I got a pair in black from Target and I ADORE them! They're quite comfortable and at the 30% off price on 14 dollars, I couldn't go wrong! I wish they had them in brown though, would've loved that! I guess I'll be searching everywhere for em'! They're sold out of the black online, though, so I'm glad I got them!

I also got some un-important things for school, although, they're quite cute. I'll probably end up posting a picture of the stuff I got tomorrow! I got a few witty notebooks, a couple of pens, some highlighters, a pencil bag and a smaller notebook for me to take general notes in. 
We also stopped at the craft store where I was on the eternal lookout for a lightbox. I finally found one! But I didn't have a coupon with me for it, so I couldn't get it! But I did get some tracing paper, a couple sketch books (on sale) and grab bags of water color pencils and general sketching pencils for super-cheap, even though they're lovely! And by buying those things I got a 40% off coupon that starts the 7th that I can use! So the lightbox will be mine!! I'm so excited.

I have to go into the school tomorrow to work on stuff for our theatre club which I'm a co-president of! Woohoo. Fun stuff. I hope it goes well! Maybe I'll try out the new wedges then! Or I'll wait to premiere them at the next party I attend! Well, time will tell!

Webcam funnies.

I obviously had way too much fun with my webcam today.

I should be out right now running some errands like dropping of my registration for school that was "due" a week ago (Oops). But "due" here really means just get it in before school starts, so I guess I'm okay, is it like that other places too? Or are we all just super-lazy bums because it's 120 out?
My mum also has some secret errands to run. She won't tell me what they are, yet I'm going. Oh yay. Maybe we're going sock shopping?!?! Oh yay! Big fun! Hah. Not. But we're almost off! No pictures of my outfit today, yet, but I'm wearing...

{white tee from Target}
{gold and turquoise chain necklace} 
{light wash jeans from LC for Kohl's}
{Coral heart ring}
{One big orange button earring; vintage}
{One blue and white feather earring from Charlotte Russe}
{Hair: Wavy}
{Makeup: Purple-ish pink and coffee glitter smokey eye courtesy of Bare Essentials' amazing eyeshadows "drama" and some pinkish-purple color I forget the name of! OH! And my wonderful Smashbox gel eyeliner that I got in the duty free store on the ferry from London to Paris a couple weeks ago because I ran out of eyeliner!}
