New Years Resolutions

Wow, it is now already that time of year when we reflect on our accomplishments and failures, and the many memories that we experienced throughout the year. I am personally very proud of myself for starting college and doing really well (yay!) but I still have many goals and wishes for myself and my family for this New Year.

One of my New Years Resolutions is to try and cut back on shopping (which is soooooo hard to do) because I'd rather save up for fewer quality items then spend tons of money on cheap ones. Speaking of quality items my birthday is approaching (Feb 5th is my 21st!!!!) and I have one BIG wish... a Louis Vuitton Speedy 30 bag. My fiance has already said he'll try to get it for me... so I'm hoping it happens! :) Then I will not be shopping for a LONG time (except for the thrift store LOL).

Another New Years Resolution of mine -which I share with many people- is to get organized. My life constantly feels very chaotic and to be honest my house is a MESS!!! I need to clean up and get everything organized because it will make my busy life much easier. I have many other goals in this New Year, and it feels great to be able to have this blog and share my life with the people who take the time to read it. So thank you, and hopefully in the New Year this blog will get even better. Happy New Year! :)

Christmas Gifts and Shopping

Christmas turned out to be really nice for my family and I. I really enjoyed going to parties and seeing people I haven't seen in awhile and spending time with family. I ended up giving and receiving a lot of great gifts this year. Some of the things I got: Visa gift card, leather boots, Magenta Razor phone, patent leather k/o balenciaga bag, beautiful blue k/o paddingtion bag, and a beautiful music box.

I was especially looking forward to after Christmas shopping (especially with my gift card.. I got cash too). The day after Christmas I went to Target since I had found some really good deals on black Friday. I ended up with a cute leather jacket (which I really DON'T need another jacket but this one was hot and on clearance) and a pair of jeans which I ended up returning because I didn't like how they looked on.

Then I went into the mall where I ended up getting another pair of boots that have the cutest lace detail in the back, and a pair of Baby Phat jeans. All in all I was really disappointed with the sales. Everything that was on sale seemed to already be on sale, and there was really nothing spectacular. I did end up spending my gift money though :P Hope you had and continue to have a Happy Holiday!

Target Shopping

Finally I am posting again! Sorry for the long wait, I just recently finished up my classes for the semester so I am happy to have some free time! I went to Target today because I heard the new Go International line was on sale so of course I had to check it out....
There was alot of cute stuff there, but I ended up getting a gold silk blouse for 20.00, and a leopard print faux fur coat for 45.00. I love the way the gold top looks on, I'm thinking about wearing it for Christmas. The first time I seen the leopard print coat at a different Target I didn't like it..LOL and then I tried it on a couple weeks ago and really liked how it looked on (I've always wanted a leopard print coat even when it wasn't trendy) but it was 90.00. I decided to let it go and then today I seen it in my size for much less. I'm still not 100% sure I'm going to keep it because I'm not sure how much I'd actually wear it.
All of our Christmas shopping is done (finally!) and so now we can relax and enjoy the Holidays. I hope you have a Happy Holiday, stay safe, and have Happy Shopping! :)

Some Time to Post... Finally!

I finally have some time to post! This weekend has been very busy with me finishing a research paper, studying for my finals, and trying to do Christmas shopping! Thankfully I've been able to do it all (except for studying which will be done hopefully after this post) and now I can take a break.

I was able to do some shopping (mostly for christmas :P). On Wednesday I went shopping for myself... LOL. I went to the mall and went to Wetseal and got some cute things at their sale. I usually don't even bother rummaging though their sale crap because it's usually not in my size and if it is it's ugly (I go through the same thing-maybe even worse- at Charlotte Russe). I actually found two tops on sale for ten dollars each! One was a purple turtleneck, the other was a red satin wrap top. At H&M (one of my fav stores) I got a really cute pink cardigan. At Rave/G&G/Lola/Whatever the hell they are calling themselves now I got the cutest blue bubble hem top on sale for half off for about eight dollars! Finally at Clarie's I got a pair of rhinestone hoop earrings.

On Friday I went to Target and got some Christmas gifts. I really wasn't feeling any of their stuff this week for myself which was surpising but a good thing :). On Saturday I went to my local thrift store and got a cute tan jacket, and a beautiful blue silk and cashmere cardigan for only 7.99! Today I went back to the mall for more Christmas gifts and my fiance got me one of my Christmas gifts which is a Ecko Red jacket on sale at Macy's for 58.00. It's really cute and makes me feel like I did a few years ago when I was more hip hop..LOL (that sounds so cheesy... I know). I got my fiance a new game system so he's happy :).

Hopefully you've enjoyed your weekend and Happy Holidays! Happy Shopping too! :)

Recent Purchases

I haven't posted in awhile because I've been sick :( and I have finals coming up so I'm seriously cramming. I had to at least post something, so I posted some pics of some new purchases I've made. The first thing I got was a really pretty Italian leather purse from TJ Maxx on clearance for 58.00 (which is a little more that I usually pay for handbags but it was marked down quite a bit). Then today I got a thrifted leather jacket (can't get enough of them!!) and I got the shoes I ordered from Old Navy. Well hope you enjoy your week... and as always, Happy Shopping! :)

Black Friday Shopping Purchases

Black Friday Shopping

Well I'm back in town now and have been so busy with school and everything that I'm now finally able to post about my weekend. My fiance and I stayed in a hotel near a cottage that his family had rented for the week on the water. The place was so cool with an indoor swimming pool (full size) a hot tub and about 7 bedrooms and baths. There were fireplaces in practically every room and really nice a bar. It was so much fun!

On Friday I went shopping at the mall closest to the area and found some great things! I was a bit surprised that it wasn't as crowded as it has been other years I've gone out on Black Friday. I was also surprised at some of the great deals I got!

I started out at Payless and got a cute pair of leopard print shoes. Then I went to H&M where I got a pair of skinny black corduroy pants. At Wetseal I got a beautiful purple sweater dress and a leather like jacket for 17.00! Even the cashier was stunned by how cute it was for the price!

After leaving the mall I went to Old Navy to try and check out there cashmere sweaters for 30.00 but I didn't see any :( I heard they were bad quality anyways. Then I went next door to Target and found some real deals. I was so excited when I found two real leather jackets in my size for 25.00! They were about 75% off! I got one in black and one in a grayish color. I also got a cute pair of boots on 50% off clearance for 17.00. This has been the first year I've found really good deals on Black Friday and I'm very excited!

Holiday Time!

I've had to get a lot of things together this week because it will be my first time traveling for Thanksgiving. I still can't believe how fast time has gone and that Thanksgiving and Christmas are already coming up! I bought some luggage and necessities and am ready to go!

We will be only spending a couple of days away but I DO plan on going shopping on Black Friday. I know you probably think I'm crazy but I always go shopping on that day even though I never really find any deals and it's usually crazy. I remember spending one Black Friday at home and on all the news stations they had complete coverage of all the people at the malls... I HAD to go! I just couldn't miss out on all the excitement!

I did a little bit of shopping this week but most of it was online. I'll let you know how stuff worked out when I receive it. I'll also post up about my Black Friday experiences. I also did score a large overnight bag in brown faux croc at my local thrift store for 4.99, talk about good timing!

Have a safe and good Holiday season... and Happy Shopping! :)

I heart Walmart

Metro 7 Women's column dress 16.94 at

I know alot of people don't have many wonderful things to say about Walmart- I know I didn't for a very long time- but from what I'm seeing lately their selection has seriously improved. From their new Metro 7 line which is now branching out to accessories to the George ME collection there is alot of cute new items at Walmart.

I have found some of my recent fav finds at Walmart, from a cute pair of slouchy boots for around 30.00 to a wrap dress for about 15.00! I also have scored a lace cami for 15.00, and a really nice purse for 20.00. They are now even carrying "eco-friendly" bamboo long sleeve tops for about 10.00! When things are on clearance it gets even better, I once scored two lace short sleeve jackets from their Metro 7 line for 1.00 each!

I know that Walmart's clothing is obviously not the most quality of items but they are really just the same in my opinion as Target or Forever 21's quality just with cheaper prices. The Walmart near me even remodeled and I have to say it looks really nice in there (but we'll see how long that lasts... that's the downside of Walmart) All I can say is don't forget about Walmart because they are really stepping up their game!

Today's Shopping

I had not done any shopping recently because I splurged on a leather jacket so I was really happy to be able to go shopping today. I first went to my local thrift store and got a pretty pink cable knit sweater, two black sweaters, and a cute Target blazer. I then went to the mall and got two cute pairs of shoes at Payless (I wish they were still having BOGO!) I got a really cute pair of patent black ballet flats for 14.99! I also got a really cute pair of boots (even though I have way too many already!). I got some great finds! :)

New Jacket

I took a trip to my local thrift store on Saturday. As usual there were a lot of Target cast off things from the old Paul and Joe line, and a few other things that I put in my cart. I went over to the coat section even though I rarely ever find anything decent or my size (everything is usually huge!!) so imagine my surprise when I came across this chocolate brown vintage leather jacket!

I brought it with me into the fitting room and tried a few things on before I actually tried on the jacket. When I tried it on it fit very well except it's a bit big on me in the shoulders and arms but nothing too noticeable. The tie waist helped to make it fitted in the waist also. I was so excited about my find until I looked at the price tag... 39.99. 39.99!!!! I was pissed! Why the heck is this the ONE vintage jacket that is actually small enough to fit me and it's the MOST EXPENSIVE jacket I've EVER seen in the store!!

I walked up to my fiance and told him about my find and of course he was no help (LOL). So I decided I was going to ask why the heck this jacket was so much money in a thrift store. I usually hate asking people questions or for help so this was a HUGE step for me, but I wasn't going to leave this jacket without a fight. I went up to one of the cashiers who has seen me tons of times in the store (I'm a regular) and asked her if there was anyway she could explain to me why the jacket was so expensive. She told me she didn't understand why it was so much either when the highest the coats usually go up to is 25.00.

The cashier was sweet enough to go in the back ( huge raves for her! :) and ask a manager why the jacket was so much, and a couple minutes later came out with the jacket with a new tag for 19.99. I was very happy! Not only was I able to afford the jacket but I also learned a powerful lesson about asking.. JUST DO IT! Who cares if you look stupid, you could wind up looking smart in the end!

Shopping, Shopping, and more Shopping!!!

I have done some serious shopping lately! On Wednesday I went to a different mall then I usually go to (it's much farther away) and it has alot more stores and is in a more wealthy area. I first checked out H&M (one of my fav stores) and got a cute gray wrap sweater and a black cowl neck sweater. At Wetseal I got a beautiful purple and black kimono sweater (even though I already own WAY too many of these tops already!). I like Wetseal alot more then I like Charlotte Russe or Forever 21 because to me they have alot more of a selection and I love that they carry cute belts! I never seem to find anything in Charlotte Russe except for sometimes shoes, and I've already ranted about Gadzooks aka Forever 21..LOL.

I also went to the Target out there and seen that the new Go International line is now in all of the stores. There was a little bit more of the collection at this Target so I checked it out. There were some pretty gold and black satiny tops, but for 39.99 I walked away. I also saw the cutest purple satiny top with a bow but I passed on it because it was sleeveless (it's too cold out here for that) and it was more than I wanted to spend on basically a tank top (24.99). I did find a really cute striped Paul & Joe blazer on clearance sale for 10.00. It's my one and only Paul & Joe item, and I don't have anything from the new Go International designer because I ended up returning the skinny jeans because I already had too many jeans. Anyways I also got a cute polka dot tunic and it was from Liz Lange! No I'm NOT pregnant but this top was TOO cute to pass up and honestly doesn't look like a maternity top on. Check out ALL sections because you never know what you can find!

Today I went to my local mall (I know, I know.. but all we have here is malls!!!) and I got a wrap dress from H&M (I checked it out at the other location and then decided I had to have it for the holidays when I seen it again) , I also got a swing coat on clearance for 24.00!! I went to Old Navy and got a pair of flat boots on clearance for 15.00. I then went to Burlington Coat factory and got a cute gray turtleneck sweater for about 10.00. Finally I went to Rue 21 and found the cutest red k/o quilted stam bag for 19.99! I will post up pics soon.. Happy Shopping :)

Recent Shopping

This week has been pretty crazy for me, I took a important math test, finished a five and a half page paper for English and am now beginning a new one, and also found my sister who I haven't seen in about 13 years! Somehow with all that going on I still found time to shop. :)

On Wednesday I went to a different mall then I usually go to and went into a couple of stores I don't usually get to go to. One of them is Gadzooks (aka Forever 21). I usually don't really like this store because everything seems to be stuffed and piled on to each other. It used to just be Gadzooks but they were bought out I guess by Forever 21 and so now all the items in the store are pretty much Forever 21, with the name of the store still being Gadzooks. The store then got this massive amount of Forever 21 stuff with VERY little space to put it so everything is stuffed everywhere and good luck trying to find anything.

I also don't like that the store seems to NEVER have my size in anything (I'm a small to a x small). I also don't like their store policy that you can't get cash back for ANYTHING just store credit. That seems so stupid to me!!! Anyways despite all of my dislike of the store I was able to find a few nice things. I got a navy blouse, a pinstripe blazer, a pair of pinstripe pants, and a navy blue satin wrap sweater. I hope to be able to wear the navy blue wrap sweater and pinstriped pants for the holidays.

At the same mall I also found a new store called Urban Behavior. I usually don't go into "urban" stores at the mall because it's all over priced. This store however wasn't the typical "urban" store because it was all by the the same label (Urban Behavior) and was VERY affordable. I wouldn't say the quality was amazing but for the prices you really can't go wrong. I ended up with two short peacoats, one white and one black, for 29.99 each.

On Friday I went to my usual mall (lol) and got an adorable black jumper from 579, a tan short trench coat from Old Navy (I returned the black one),and a really nice Baby Phat purse from Burlington Coat Factory. I also ordered some boots from Old Navy so hopefully those work out! Happy shopping :)

My Doll of The Day

There is a cute website where you can design your own dolls called You can customize your doll to look like you and dress however you like. My only wish is that they had more options for skin color and hair (I'm a mixed girl so I always have that problem!) Anyways it's cute and fun, check it out! :)

This is my doll for the day, I'll post more up if I have some time (which is hard to come by lately!)

Walmart Shopping

Yesterday I went to Walmart and saw a ton of great stuff. First of all there was a dollar clearance rack of clothes! You could see a crowd of people around it, so I decided to check it out. I ended up getting two metro 7 satin short sleeve jackets (I think they call them bed jackets) one in purple and one in blue.

I also got a couple of purses in the Metro 7 line (pictured). I have really been finding good purses at Walmart (surprisingly more than Target). They also have great shoes in that line (although a lot more pricey than typical Walmart stuff). I got a pair of black slouch boots.

I checked out the George line also and they finally had the black wrap dress in my size! I also got a pretty red cami but I think it's going back because it doesn't look so pretty on me LOL (I hate when that happens!). Just thought I'd share my finds! Happy Shopping!

In my last post I said I had went to a new opening of a Target in my area. I got to preview the new Go International Line and purchased a pair of the dark denim skinny jeans. I also got a brown jacket (pictured) and a sweater/ puffer jacket.

This week I also went to a new Marshalls opening and got some cute skinny jeans (I need to stop buying them!), I also got a dark denim trench coat style jacket. At the mall I stopped by H&M and got a cute purple top.

I went to my local thrift store too and got a pair of Tommy Hilfiger pinstriped pants, brand new Mossimo top, and a brand new pair of gold earrings. Shopping has been great lately! :)

New Go International Line at Target

Sorry for the tiny pic but I just wanted to post that the new Go International line was at a new Target that just opened in my area! I ended up purchasing the black denim skinny jeans with lace detail.
The line featured alot of dressy items like velvet skirts, satin shirts, alot of lace detailing, and alot of black and jewel tone colors. I also purchased alot of other things (from different lines) that I will put in another post. Just thought I'd share the update! :)

I haven't posted in awhile, so I was trying to think of what to post when I decided I would try posting up my outfit for today. It's not the greatest pic, and my mirror needs to seriously get, but it's what I could do in a hurry. It's getting pretty cold here so I'm now able to wear my fall clothes.
Today I'm wearing my new jacket from Target, my express purplish top, Levis jeans, my new guess ankle boots, and my new purse from Walmart. I'm planning on doing some shopping today and am excited that it's Friday! Hopefully I'll be able to keep up with outfit pics (they are not easy!) and hopefully I'll get better at the pics :).

I have done quite a bit of shopping over the week. On Monday I got this purse from Walmart in black (love it!). On Tuesday I received a top I ordered online but unfortunately it wasn't exactly what I expected (I hate when that happens!) On Thursday I went to Walmart (I've been buying a lot from there lately!) and got a couple pairs of boots.

On Friday I went to my local thrift store (as usual) and found a really cute tweed jacket and a pair of jeans. Today I went to my local mall and found two cute kimono tops (I really need to stop buying them!!!). I will have some pics soon...

I have been noticing a lot of people school shopping lately...(which can be annoying with all the crowds) which reminds me that I need to get some supplies for school because it's beginning soon (luckily though I'm only going part time this semester) I'm excited but yet nervous for the change of schedule. Summers almost over and I can't believe it, but I can't wait to wear my Fall clothes!! :)

Weekend Shopping

This weekend has been quite a crazy one, I just got home from a family reunion! Early in the week I received my ankle boots and love them! Another thing scratched off my list for fall. I also went to the mall on Wednesday and picked up a really cute kimono top (I'm obsessed with them lately). On Friday I went to my local thrift store and got some brand new gold sandals for 4.99, and brand new flat suede boots for 8.99. Today I received my polka dot top and I love it! Another fall item purchased! Speaking of polka dots I decided to return the top in my last post (yay or nay) despite all the wonderful comments everyone made (thank you). I just thought the top was cute, but ultimately too much for me and my style.

Sorry for the lack of pictures, my digital camera is currently full of pics to be developed, and some of the websites I wanted to get pics from won't let me. I'll have some pics posted up soon though! Have a great weekend! :)

Yay or Nay?

I bought this top today from Target and I am seriously thinking about returning it. I can't decide whether I hate the top or love the I feel like in some ways it looks like a clown I need some opinions.. so yay or nay?

Saturday, August 05, 2006

Weekend Shopping

On Thursday I went to the mall and got a great pair of dark denim bootcut jeans ( I have a lot of skinnys so I like to have classic bootcut also, no matter what the trend). Then I went to Target (my favorite place lately!) and bought the other colors of the blazer I got recently. I love the fit and the comfort of the jackets, they are great!

On Friday I went to my local thrift store and found a great pair of Luella skinny jeans from the Go International line that were brand new with the tags that I got for 11.99 (still a little pricey for a thrift store but I like them a lot!) I also got a pink sweater and a black suede skirt on sale for 1.99.

Today I'm going to a big party so I'm going to wear my little bitty summer dress I got from Charlotte Russe for like 10.00. Hopefully it will be a good time! Enjoy the weekend! :)

Paul & Joe

I went to Target yesterday to check out the new Paul and Joe line, and I wasn't very impressed. Most of the tops felt a little too spring to me when I'm trying to shop for fall clothes. Also there was a lot of buzz about the black kimono dress so I tried it on and I didn't like it at all. The sleeves looked like bat wings to me (and I usually love kimono style tops an dresses) and the material just wasn't great.

I also seen the owl pocket skinny jeans, and they were cute.. but not cute enough for me to pay full price. None of it was really enough for me to pay full price, but if it goes on sale I'll probably check it out again.

Saturday, July 29, 2006

Weekend Shopping

It all started on Wednesday when I stopped by the mall and picked up a pair of silver pumps for only 14.99! Then on Thursday I went to a different mall and got a cute pencil skirt (another item on the list!) on clearance for 12.90, and a beautiful locket for like 6.00. Then on Friday I went to my local thrift store and found a brand new pair of the Mossimo leather platform pumps in my size for 6.99 (a bit expensive for a thrift store, but they are real leather) and a cute top for 3.99. Then I headed to Target and decided to look around and see if I could find a cute soft jacket something like the tied style (like the gray one in the pic) which was like 200.00! Good old Target didn't let me down, they had the cutest one for 16.99! Of course it's not as cute as the more expensive one but it sure is a deal!

I also ordered a pair of ankle boots (hopefully they turn out to be perfect!) Here's what I've gotten so far on my list:

1. Ankle Boots (still waiting to see how they turn out.. hopefully great!)

2. Knee high boots

3. Pencil Skirt

4. Bamboo hoops

Things I still want:

1. Denim Blazer (or a cute jacket in dark denim)

2. Trench Coat

3. Black Wool Peacoat

4. Polka Dot Blouse

5. Wrap tops/ Sweater

6. Leopard Print Pumps

7. Butterfly Necklace/ Ring

8. Knit Dress

I'm still working on it... If you have any suggestions just comment, I love to hear them!

Thanks for Reading! :)

New Earrings

I just received my new earrings from . They are even cuter IRL! I have been looking for this type of earring forever! Another item checked off my list... yay!

Finally I pulled out my digital camera after being lazy for quite awhile (I HATE that it eats up batteries!) I kinda got a little crazy with the, not the most flattering pics, but it's damn hard to take pictures of yourself in the mirror! :)

Recent Shopping

I usually post my recent purchases on the weekend but things have been real busy lately so I'm doing it now. On Thursday I went to Target in a different location I never even knew existed, and they had fall shoes before the one close to my house. I bought a great pair of boots, I wasn't going to get them at first because they are a little too big for me in the legs but after a few people commenting that they liked them on me I decided to give them a chance. As it turns out they are perfect because I can wear them with jeans or a skirt.

The Target I went to was in a plaza so I went to a few more stores. After Target I went to Kohls (which sucks in the clothes department IMO) and my fiance found a huge George Foreman grill on sale from like 100.00 to 29.99. Then I went to T.J. Maxx (which it was the first time I've ever been there because there isn't one anywhere else here) and found a cute mini skirt on clearance for 7.00. I also seen the cutest pair nine west sandals on clearance for 16.99 but I decided not to spend all my money there. Later in the day I stopped at one more store and got a cute printed top. On Friday I went to my local thrift store and found 2 express long sleeve tops for 3.99 each, and a beautiful kimono type blouse for 2.99!

I received my belt from and love it! It's even better IRL. I can't wait to incorporate it into my fall wardrobe! Now there is a few things checked off my list! :)

Fall Wish List

While I was bored today I wrote a list of some of the things I can think of that I would like to have for fall. Some of it I've wrote in previous lists on here, and I'm sure there will be more items added with all the fall trends coming up. Here's what I've got so far:

1. Ankle Boots (pointy toe black leather stilettos)

2. Tall boots (also pointy toe stilettos... I'd love to have a pair that looked like the Jimmy Choos!)

3. Dark Denim Blazer (been looking for one that actually fits for forever!)

4. Pencil Skirt (In either dark denim or black.. and super fitted)

5. Gold bamboo hoops (I have a pair but I'm still looking for the big ghetto

6. Trench Coat (In either red or pink... or any color if I liked it actually!)

7. Black Wool Pea Coat

8. Butterfly Necklace and Ring (been looking for cute ones for forever... I love butterflies!)

9. Polka Dot Blouse (I seen the cutest sheer one at H&M but of course it was sold out)

10. Wrap Top (I'd love a cute patterned one like the DVF dresses and tops)

11. Leopard Print Pumps (Very hard to find!)

That's it for now but I'm sure there will be a ton more! :) Feel free to post your fall wish list if you like.. Thanks for reading!

More Shopping...

As usual I did some shopping this weekend. I went to the thrift store on Thursday (I'm so addicted!!!) and found a ton of stuff but some how ended up spending 40.00!! 40.00 in a damn thrift store!!! How the heck do you spend that much in a thrift store!! I'm out of control..LOL!

On Friday I went to Payless and found some cute shoes on sale. Then today I returned a dress at rainbow (clothing store) and got a cute denim mini skirt instead (I'm addicted to skirts and dresses now) and then went to Walmart and found a cute pink skirt on sale for 15.00 (there getting more expensive).

All I know is that my spending is going to HAVE to slow down a lot (I know I've said that before!) so I'm just going to have to stop giving into temptation and find a new hobby!

More Cool Finds

This weekend I found a whole bunch of cool finds. On Friday I went to the mall and got some cute belts (I've been looking for good ones for so long!) two cute pairs of shoes, a dress on sale, and a black tube top.

Earlier in the week I noticed that had my sandals that I had been looking for on sale for 10.00. Good thing I noticed because my size was gone so quickly! I also did a little more shopping earlier in the week at Steve and Barry's (a discount store). I got 2 tops for 4.00 and a cute miniskirt. At a different store I got a really hot pokadot mini dress. I'm excited to wear my new stuff! :)

4th of July Weeekend

This weekend was pretty crazy so far. On Friday I went to my local thrift store and got a really pretty dress, a pair of great black pants (which I needed), a brand new watch (for 1.00!), and a cute top. Then on Saturday I popped into Walmart and spotted this cute purse on sale for 13.00. I'm really loving Walmart stuff

On Saturday I also went to my big sisters house to celebrate and drank way too much! I was sick ALL day Then on Monday we went out to the country and watched fireworks at a lake out there. It was very beautiful! Hopefully today will be a great day! Happy 4th of July!

I am so addicted to skinny jeans lately. I have way too many pairs already, and today just bought another! These ones are so cute though, they have a super skinny fit and end right at the ankle (perfect for flats). I seen them when I was "browsing" through Target, and after seeing that there was only one pair left in my size (it must have been fate!) I talked myself into getting them. Now all I need is some cute short boots to wear with them for :)

Inside My Closet Room

A few pics of inside the room I (with the help of my fiance) turned into a closet room. I usually keep my out of season clothes and shoes in this room (I know I have a lot of shoes! They are not even all Just thought I'd post up some pics since I never usually do! :)

I've realized that I have been getting really lazy with posting up pictures so I got a few pictures of some of the things I've bought recently.
