Always A Blessing in Disguise...

I Know....I have been gone. But for good reason. I took a trip to Connecticut to stay with my mom who i had not seen in about TWO years because of school. Yes, i did miss my blog, but could do nothing about it because i was not lugging my laptop with me lol. So I made the best of the situation and spent all my time with my mom. Hopefully she could come stay with me soon. For the meantime, plans to visit a friend for NYE were ruined because of the thought of traveling through NYC on this particular day. I passed through on Wednesday as I made my way back to school and it is nowhere to be at the moment. The roads are disgusting and i have NO idea how they plan to keep the place at bay with everyone who will be going there to see the ball drop!
I on the other hand will be spending tonight in doors. Because of my changed plans nothing else could possibly be done. Since everyone and their pockets are charging admission and the fact that you must buy tickets before hand. So no outing for me! or at least for not, let us see where the wind blows me...
As for my blessing in disguise, Staying in is probably best for me. As I would be traveling alone and a lot of crazy people come out at this time. At least that's what I know from back home lol.  

As for my New Year Resolution, I usually do not make any. I work towards my goals and let God show me where he see's my best interest in the future.

On the other hand, I will be making changes to my blog and plan to keep up as much as possible (without my school work intervening). I'll be doing new things with my blog, It won't be that fancy lol but I do try my best =). I'd like to thank everyone who has supported my blog! whether it be following me, commenting or just viewing my page, watching my views go up really do put a smile on my face and makes my day, which is why I plan to put much more effort into this blog.

 THANK YOU ALL SOOO MUCH!! Safe travels to everyone tonight and I hope everyone keep safe!

tunic: TJMaxx, blazer: TJMaxx, Jeans: Guess via TJMaxx, Shoe: Nine west, Scarf: H&M, earring: F21

As you may be able to tell from the title of this post, I'M FREE! Finals are over and I get to enjoy my 1 MONTH winter break. Most of all I get to dress how I want. On campus, I feel restricted, as if people will look at me a certain way. I've now learnt to not care what they think. I will dress how I want and what my mood inspires me to wear. Majormusthave's last post was directed to this topic of your individuality and it really resonated with me. (I suggest you check out her blog, I absolutely love it!)
Seeing that the winter is obviously a week and a half early where I am (i freeze my tush off everytime i step through the door, I thought it was suppose to be FALL! ugh) Anyways, I need to be more creative in how to put outfits together now. So that they not only show my style, but that i am also warm and comfortable. I know that beauty/style takes pain is the saying, but as an Island girl, I'd rather be warm! lol give me a large soft blanket and i will be set for the day.  Hope you enjoyed this post guys and thanks for your support! =)

Too Good to Keep to Myself

I was browsing the internet and i came upon this website: that had a particular article on fashion blogging. I thought it was too cute details they made this and had to share. The link above will take you to the article. 


What to Wear for the Holidays

I wrote an articles for one of my schools paper to give young women some ideas on how they can style or get ideas from outfits. The outfits are all beautiful as they stand but to make them your own put your own twist on things. The items do not have to be the exact same, the concept is getting ideas from them. Then again if you have items close to these and you think the sets are perfect just the way they are...GO FOR IT! Lord knows I may lol. Here are a few of the sets that i featured in the article. I hope these help you with coming up with a version that represents you! Enjoy =)

Here we go again...

jacket - People Liberation, tunic - Charlotte Russe, tights - H&M, shoes - Steve Madden, earring - Swarovski 
I know, I promised pictures on Friday. But I have good reason(=D)came in late so i was unable to upload the pictures. But here we go!!!... =)

I went to see Harry Potter 7.1 and it was so good! I suggest you see it but i don't know if it is just me but i was jumping out my chair most of the movie! lol It had me on edge! After we saw the movie my friends and I went to the time square forever 21. I don't think i have ever see a more organized and crystal clear store. It was so puuurrrdy, but i only got one thing. For some reason that store seems to be extremely pricey compared to how forever 21 used to be. They also carried a lot of trendy items and I was not exactly feeling it. There is too much "trending" in stores right now. Is there no place for normal? I man they had almost everything in leopard print and fur. Items that i think probably won't be as popular pretty soon. Oh well, I refuse to  purchase too much trendy items lol. I don't have it to spend.   
cheesiest smile ever! lol

For my outfit I found this floral tunic in Charlotte Russe for $5.00!! I got another one in brown as well. I know you all might also be wondering why I wear these commbat boots in almost all of my posts. Firstly, my school is not exactly the place to wear heels lol. There is a lot of hills and valleys and my feet would be killing me by time i got to my first class. Secondly, i've been trying to break these bad boys in FOREVER! It feels like a piece of board on your foot all the time. These seem to not want to be broken in and its getting on my nerves at this point haha. Lastly, they go with everything and are the easiest things to put on in the morning. lol Yes this means i need to put more effort and stop being lazy. I will. Promise lol. Enjoy your weekend everyone!! =)
There is no denying that winter is FAST approaching...

You look Parisienne!!

Hi everyone!

Just a quick post on what i wore yesterday. This outfit was completely unintentional lol. I was running late for work and just grabbed the easiest thing i saw in my closet! Surprisingly i had alot of people telling me that i looked Parisienne. I was not expecting that at all. Anyways, I had this outfit in mind before based on a photo of Rihanna (shown below) but wanted to change it up a bit and make it mine. i basically took the idea of an oversized jumper and ran with it. I wore this outfit to class so i was not going to wear 4' heels. I had a ton of classes too so i threw on some flats :). But I was not exactly ready to try it yet, but because i was running late i just went with it. I L.O.V.E. this sweater. Its super warm! yesterday was freezing and i could manage to take off my coat and just be with the sweater! I hope you like this post. let me know what you think.... and have a great weekend!
