I cannot wait for this to be my window view tomorrow.
I decided to escape for a little and head down to Mexico for a couple of days.
To sun bathe, relax, read, have fun, drink pina coladas left and right... Yep. I am pretty pumped.
My bestie might be coming with me, so I have that to look forward to too! 

So, I will be posting from Mexico the next time you hear from me! I hope everyones' Christmas went swimmingly. Love you all!

Tulips lives in her bed...

Wowie! Word from the now wise? Don't have a party the night before Christmas Eve unless you can live on coffee and advil. It was a fabulous party, but it's been so long since I've had one that this one felt like a marathon with the ringleader couch potato; me!

So, my plans for today aren't excesss, or any at all, for that matter. Hopefully I'll at least get to see my friends for an hour or so and get some packing done. I go to my dad's house at noon tomorrow, so I've got to pack today! I decided it'd be fun to pack my fashion-forward stuff and try to whip something I've never worn before up everyday so that should at least keep things interesting!

Time for my picture reel!
My cousins got me this adorable Hello Kitty watch! 

I have been lusting over this wreath for months.

The Hunger Games is one of the best series I've ever read; hands down. I'm on Mockingjay right now, which is sadly the last book in the trilogy! Has anyone else read the series? If you haven't, I definitely suggest it.

My friend's gift that I wrapped; basically embodies who she is! And it reminds me of Kandee Johnson!

My friends....

First real, live Christmas tree.

Picture gone right!

Outfit... At the end of the night!
{Lace top: F21}
{Dress: H&M}

Our tree with my favorite ornaments! The peacock is from Germany and the Mickey is from when I went to Disneyland last Christmas!

Happy Christmas Eve!

Tulips' Wishes.

It is sincerely hard to blog about fashion when you're in such an unfashionable city.
When you have all these great looks just sitting in your closet, but nowhere to wear them. And when you do, you get the up-down left and right. You could have everything in the world, but without confidence, it's nothing.
Anyway, I'm bursting at the seams to get out of this glass-ceiling town of Mesa. I've loved the experiences I've had here, but my time here is done. I only have one semester of high school left. Then I can leave. If not to college, then the Peace Corps. I'm going to make a difference for myself and others; I'm determined.
I'm also determined to start wearing what I like, so hopefully we'll see some more pictures on here!

New year, new me.
I've never been so sure of anything in my life.

Tulips thanks goodness it's Friday.

Do you understand just how happy I am that it's Friday? I've been caroling and had two concerts this week; things have been quite crazy! It's been a good week, but I'm glad it's over.
There's this Italian place right around the corner from my dad's house and I've always wanted to try it out; on Wednesday I finally did!
It may have been the best Italian I've ever had. Even versus Italy. I had a cannoli that was AMAZING. You have no idea how much I want one again. Permanent crave.
Another thing I'm craving?
A holiday dress.
I have a few Christmas Parties coming up soon and a masquerade in January; I need a couple new looks! It's really hard to work with one dress when you're seeing the same general group of people every time. But maybe I'll make it a challenge? Redressing the same LBD maybe? We'll see!
I'm learning how to arrange my time so I can fit in blogging, caroling, Hamlet, schoolwork, college apps... Everything. Into a day; it's working pretty well!
I should have some photos after this weekend. And I should probably get the pictures on my Canon uploaded soon; I'll be having a mini scrapbook field day!

I have been caroling like a MANIAC lately! Too busy to blog, but never too busy to dress well! ;)

{Jacket: Brooklyn Industries}
{Royal blue tank: H&M}
{Black maxi-skirt: H&M}
{Desert booties: Target}
{Necklace: My creative, 5 y.o. self}

Bohemian look... I'm really good at throwing things together in a pinch.

These sock monkies are too adorable, how can you resist them? They even had a pirate one which took some serious self control to keep me from buying.

Do you see the dime I caught?! Got a free taco for my friend, Cason!
Cost me a dollar trying, but it all goes towards charity, so worth it! ;)

I've been trying really hard to at least get pictures of my everyday looks; my style is really evolving and it's interesting to see the changes! We're in the process of moving right now, so I'm working out of a small suitcase of clothes and goodwill, so we'll see what comes of that!
