Wow 2011 is almost over.
this year definitely went by quickly but I'm grateful for the the gift of life
Spotted a blaque label dress on lulus which retailed for $140, so I decided to DIY one for myself 
bought fabric for $1.50/per yard (1.50*2=$3) 
yes this outfit cost me only  $3 haha 
plus it was super easy to construct

Christmas pinks and blues

Whoop Whoop! 3 more days to Christmas, 
*villagers dance* lol
for some reason I dont really feel that "holiday vibe" apart from the fact almost all  all my siblings are in town and its been awesome so far! 
I've been enjoying nice home cooked meals from my elder brother Ik..Ha! who said guys don't cook? 
This is a lil late, 
I went out last week Friday with my sisters to a nice classy spot Belvedere and this is a lil sum sum of it.

Rusty not gloomy

Photobucket

It is 3:15AM. Ask me why I'm not sleeping? 
*crickets* 
yup! no answer lol
I want to share with you guys pictures from Sunday after Church..it was a little chill so I had to be fully covered [as usual]. I thought I should switch it up with these wide leg pants from forever 21 which I love, It does justice to my slim hips which some pants dont.  I keep falling in love which orange, rust, burnt orange, reddish orange, blueish orange [lol] any type of orange you can imagine because its such a great color on my skin tone.

Some things I learnt this week (12/4-12/11)

Photobucket


I'm almost done with my final exams,WOOHOO! I can feel the bowl slowly lifting from my head, I feel the urge to blog very often and it feels good! so why shouldn't I do "the things I learnt last week"? 
When I get a new idea or thought I walk back and forth in my room like a child who just got a new present ..kinda weird i think.
  1. If you want to forget all your troubles, wear too tight shoes! I made this mistake and went out to the mall sometime last week wearing a new shoe I decided to try out and all I could think of was my poor feet being enveloped by  wicked villagers <no bueno> lol
  2. Time invested in improving ourselves cuts down on time wasted in disapproving of others. stop wasting your time hating on other people when you can love yourself ...c'mon whats more better than love.
  3. At the same time keep staying happy! stop having high expectations about the future, try work on your present and deal with your problems then you'd have solutions for the future.
  4. Never give up on something you can't go a day without thinking about; it should keep you HUNGRY and determined 
  5. The "Anonymous" people are always the ones that have the most negative things to say; I'm I the only one who's observed this? ..reason they can't? because they can't say it with recognition #weak, I was going through a fellow bloggers page and I was about to leave a comment until I stumbled on a very harsh comment from a "anonymous" being, the moment I saw it I shook my head and did my lil eye rolling thing. Blogging is for fun, people do it for various reasons but not to "show off" in any sort, there's nothing bad in constructive criticism (we all learn) but going off with mean comments about nobody's business should be done with your identity since we all have one. go back to point No 2 damn! abeg moving on......
  6. Those who bring sunshine into the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves so surround yourselves with positive people and be positive.

I would love to keep typing and typing because my brain explodes with thoughts when I start writing things of this sort  but I really wanted to keep this short and simple. 
PS I decided to try out a new lip color and I will ramble more about it in the next post.
I also got few messages about making a tutorial on how I do my eyebrows, I will be glad to do it as soon as I have the guts to lol 
like it?
later peeps!

My state with kings

*Finals Week*
I want it to end quickly! to me, this is the best way to take a little break from the studying besides twitting or checking out youtube videos.
I realized I needed a break the moment I stared into my textbook for almost 20minutes straight without understanding one thing. Story of my life huh? The reason I created this blog was to solely release my thoughts into words/wisdom, not just about fashion (which I get tempted to do alot btw) comprehend? My week in general has been full of surprises good and bad. God help us with the type of stories we hear and learn from everyday; life indeed is amusing. So never fail to be thankful!
 
If your reading this and you have upcoming finals like I do

I wish you the best of luck! (but make sure you study though lol) 
  • FUTURE WISH LIST: Twins! although I am still a twenty something year old good looking lady *grins* with no plans of getting married anytime soon let alone have kids;  I want twins! I want to believe it runs in my family since I have twin siblings (non-identical) male and female who are so adorable and funny. God please answer my future prayers o lol jk but on a serious note though I really want twins; there is just something tantalizing about it. Thanks to technology, you can plan to have them but AT ALL O! I want the natural type...the type that will do racing competition to get to the egg (funny ideology) lol 
I remembered this after watching this video of Channy and Chrissy, they are so cute and adorable. check them out and you'd see what I mean. Watching them talk makes me smile and WISH! they're funny too


ok let me get back to studying!
chao!

Still old but very much craving...

I love the weather here in Houston Texas; although its very bipolar, Its still something to put a smile on one's face every now and then.
 Ive had these shoes for a long time, the most recent I purchased will be the Jeffrey Campbell spike which has been selling out everywhere
I purchased those since September (early birthday present *giggles)  and the others like earlier this year but I still haven't worn them. CAN YOU IMAGINE!
I try to blame it on the fact that I'm 5'10 and it will cause me too much attention when I wear them or simply because it might be "too much" for houston to handle.

Jeffrey Campbell Wrecker boot in black 
Had this shoe in brown (sold them), missed them, then bought it again but couldn't find the brown *sobs* but I'm happy with this color, 
they're probably sold out but you could get the similar here 
Photobucket
Jessica Simpson Dany in grey 
I really like this shoe, I prefer it to the jeffrey campbell foxy wood not only the look/quality but the fact it was extremely cheap ($20) 
get the similar here
Photobucket
Jeffrey Campbell Lita Spike in black
This shoe is freaking hawt! it sells out pretty quickly you can get it in black, brick red, taupe suede(fav) solestruck or urban outfitters
Cant wait to wear them with my outfits and post them
what shoe do you own (never worn) but still craving to wear?
