thrift haul

Over my spring break, I went on a thrifting adventure with my friends (which you can read about and see outfit pictures here). I finally got around to taking pictures of the things I got, so I decided to share them with you all. (:

I've been meaning to find corduroy shorts for the longest time! I love the way corduroy looks, so I was definitely excited to find these. They're a little bit too big, but nothing a belt can't fix. (:

A gorgeous floral maxi skirt that I found. I looooove the print! So pretty AND it can been worn as a dress. Love the versatility.
A polka dot skirt originally from forever21. It's so flowy and I love the polka dots. The cut looks a bit dated when worn on, but I'm planning to cut it a bit shorter.
I LOVE this dress. It's an XL, but when belted it looks amazing! Can't wait to wear this dresssss~
A crew neck sweater that I found~ It's actually a men's sweater, and I love the pattern. It's great for lazy days to just throw on with some jeans or something.
I picked this sleeveless denim shirt because I saw a lot of DIY potential in it. I'm planning to maybe stud the collar and dip dye it for an ombre effect. So many possiblities~

Last item I got were these wedged sandals. These were in great condition and super cute, so I had to pick them up.

(: those were some of my thrift finds. Can't wait to go another time...but....not now...since i'm broke... x___x *cries* i need to go find a money tree or something.. 

hope you all had a wonderful weekend! 
take care xx

4 minutes to save the world

yet another Friday! yay! (: Today was quite laid back at school. We had extended lunch today because our school scored a high API score last year, so today was our "reward" day. Kiis fm radio was here blasting music, Rockstar came with free drinks, and we had random bouncy houses, inflatable obstacles, velcro walls, and rock climbing to enjoy during our lunch today! Quite fun!

The weather has been warming up lately, so I get to bust out the shorts and dresses soon! (: The corduroy shorts are something I've been looking for forever, so I was super happy when I found them.

blouse: forever21; corduroy shorts: thrifted (originally from old navy); belt: my aunt's; cardigan: my mom's 
Today was a really nice friday. Didn't do much in school today. We continued watching this scary movie in english class today (Orphanage - it's a spanish movie.... was in spanish and we read the subtitles). I hate scary movies, so I just ended up sitting under a desk, holding on to the legs of it, and only watching the bottom part of the screen to read the subtitles. haha...such a wuss. ..but scary movies make me paranoid, so.....i think it was a smart idea to sit under the desk. haha. 

As for the title of this......the song was stuck in my head after watching our school's lip dub video, which I had the pleasure of being in. (lip dub is a school video...where students lip sync to a song, while walking through the campus with a bunch of clubs cheering in the back.. it's like to show off the school's spirit and such.. there are some really good ones on youtube [especially the universities!! - so amazing!]) Well, yes... haha, my titles never seem to be relevant to anything.. maybe it's just because I don't know what to title my posts 90% of the time.... 

I enjoyed today quite a bit! Hope you all had a great day as well! (: enjoy the weekend! 
take care!! xx

thrifting adventures

I went thrifting on Wednesday with my friends. It actually took quite a while before we got to Goodwill....haha long story...and i'm going to tell you about it.. i'll try to condense it down as much as I can.

Basically, my friends and I planned to go thrifting that day and we ran into trouble when trying to get a ride...Siblings wouldn't cooperate, none of us could drive, and so...we were stuck at home. As a last resort we all took the bus. Upon arrival, we realized that my friend's phone gave us the wrong directions, so we didn't end up at a thrift store... So, we trekked about 4 miles to the nearest Goodwill. (it was the longest walk of my life haha) Who knew going thrifting would be so difficult?........

Well, here I am waiting at the bus stop and taking pictures. haha. (:
top: my aunt's; shorts: thrifted; hat: target; bag: target
Excuse my ridiculousness....the bus took a while. haha.
Well, we did eventually get to Goodwill and we spent a good 2 or so hours in there. I found some really nice things and I'll definitely show you all what I got soon. (: It was an interesting, adventure-filled day. it was pretty fun to say the least. ^__^ I went home...super tired (with some nice thrift finds, of course! hehe)

Hope you all are doing well! Break is ending soon...(noooooooooooooooooooo.. x___x *cries*) I'll be back to studying and hard core testing soon... sigh... just a couple more months until summer.....

Take care! xx

hats off to you

Bought a new hat yesterday! (: Got it at target on sale for $9. I've always wanted a hat like this, so I'm definitely glad that I got it. I have always liked how hats looked on my, but I never wear them..this is like the 3rd hat that I own. haha. maybe I should start wearing them more since it's getting a lot sunnier and warmer outside! ^___^

Hope you all are doing well! I'm just enjoying my spring break~ Gahh I love waking up later than 6:30am on a weekday. Going to go thrifting later today with my friend! Hope I find some cool stuff. :3

Take care! xx

one more day

Just. one. more. day. One more day until spring break!!! Can't wait to be on break... gives me time to sleep! haha. (and study for SATs and AP testing, shop, and stuff... :P) Hoping that tomorrow goes by quick so I can enjoy a productive (hopefully) break! ^___^

Wore this yesterday. I'm supposed to be doing my physics project analysis...but instead i'm doing a blog post.. heh. *shhhh.......*

I always feel like I'm complaining about the weather (because you do, theresa.. duh.. >__>).... but.. it's justified because the weather is crazy. it rained yesterday...and it was super warm on monday and tuesday.. i don't know.. the weather has some major decision making to do.
I love this jacket. It goes with practically everything. My aunt gave it to me and it's super soft. People always feel the fabric when I wear this jacket...haha...makes for some awkward moments sometimes...

jacket: aunt's; tunic: wetseal(from ages ago); collared shirt: thrifted; leggings: forever21 close to break!! can't wait to wake up at my own leisure than having the annoying buzz of the alarm tell me to do so. Hope everyone had a wonderful week! (:

Take care! xx

don't forget the lyrics!

Ahh this week has been crazy busy, so I haven't gotten a chance to post until now. With my AP. U.S. History project due and my club things and I was called a day before the talent show to perform, I had a lot on my plate! So, from a previous post, I said that I didn't make the auditions for talent show, but since they didn't have enough acts for the show, they called me back the day before the show asking me if I wanted to perform...and crazy me...I accepted!! My friend and I frantically pulled together an act and I totally blanked out on the lyrics to my song while performing! hahah!!! BUT! I saved myself by stating..."WAIT. I have the lyrics on my phone!!!" and ~whipped~ out my phone and sang again. hahah. Our school assistant principal told me the next day.. "the lyrics and phone thing....was priceless." know.. I live to embarrass myself for other's entertainment... HAHA!

Besides the forgetting of lyrics, I thought I did pretty well and had a ton of fun~ No regrets~ whatever happens,  happens! ^__^ Well, other than the school work and the talent show.. I had to interview applicants for my club and that was fun! Now I'm just trying to finish all my homework and projects and get through this next week...and then SPRING BREAK~~ yay!

Now onto the outfit! (:
Okay.. so I wore this on Wednesday...when it was just really warm..all of a sudden.. agh.. weather weirdness yet again.. 

I absolutely love pairing knits over collared shirts~ obsezzed with the look it gives~~ 

collared shirt: h&m; necklaces: diy & vintage; knit sweater top: pacsun; shorts: diy; 

I also went to target yesterday and my aunt bought me some makeup stuff.. I'm always buying stuff... i know it's bad...but...i can't resist the makeup aisle!!!! everything's just so....pretty *O* (darn you, marketing techniques!!) I'm running out of space to store my makeup... heh.. oh well....
I bought Loreal's infallible eyeshadow in "eternal sunshine" (LOVE gold eyeshadow~), N.Y.C. lipstain in "Rock on Ruby," Rimmel lipstick in "airy fairy," and Revlon Colorstay nail polish in "spanish moss."
Airy Fairy is a nice pink-nude color and I didn't have a color like this, so I decided to pick it up! I don't know why I keep wanting to buy lipsticks........ I have accumulated a good amount of them over the past few months... I just..couldn't...resist!! And the ironic thing is.. I'm not much of a lip product person either.. I get lazy to reapply.. but I just love lipsticks! Maybe the small collection I'm creating will help motivate me to use them more often~
Spanish Moss is a pretty khaki green color. I've been wanting a color like this for a while, so i decided to pick it up while I was at target! I'm super impressed with the formula! It's opaque in one coat and dries super quick! Also.. it was reasonably priced at $4 and some odd cents! (:

Well, this week has been crazy packed, so I'm glad I got the chance to squeeze in a blog post! (: The next two months with preparing for the SATs and AP testing is going to be crazy hectic, so I'm just truckin' on through with the work load and trying to manage my time as well as I can. My friend and I are planning this awesome, separate outside project that I can't wait to be able to work on and tell you all about after all the testing!! (:

Hope you all are doing well!! Take care!!
