My Trip to Borders

I went to Borders, I didn't buy anything.
I'm so lame, I just go there to read and then not buy it.
I spent only one hour there but I was able to browse the new book by the Sartorialist. It was all so amazing. I was a little squealing like a little kid while looking at the images. I'm very tempted to go back and buy it now.
Other that reading that I did want to buy a Wreck This Journal. I'm sort of in love with this group. I didn't see it. I think I'll buy one next time.
Then again, will probably I get impatient and move on.
This weekend was great though.
I went salsa dancing but my camera died before I could take pictures.

Lastly, thanks everyone for seeing the humor in my last post.
I'm doing great and I loved all your comments.


Best wishes,
Anna

The Great Fall

In case I've never mention this I'm by far the clumsy person I know.
I've fallen numerous times, gotten tons of bruises, scraps, and even a twisted ankle.
BUT nothing is worst then what happen today.
I live in the Midwest and the last thing I expect to see is a cactus. Well guess what, they actually can be found outside of the zoo.
So I was wondering around the charming neiggborhood, near my campus. They have a few second-hand shops and restaurants. My dear friend, Andrew and I went for lunch and little shopping. It was warm and kind of sunny.
We took a different route to get back to campus. We came upon this corner. They were doing some sidewalk construction and we tried to get around but the street was kind of busy and we saw a little path going through a little piece of landscape on the corner of the block. Andrew jumped over this big rock and I tried to attempt the same.

Bad fucking idea.

I slipped, immediately stood up and felt a sharp pain on my leg. Like I was stab by a couple needles. I look down in horror to see a few pieces of a cactus attached to knee and shoe. Don't worry it was only about 3 inches wide.
I could barely move. Andrew first attempted to pick me up. I screamed at him to put me down and that he was making it worse. And also he's only 5'5'' and about 120 pounds.
We stood around this corner, while I frantically called everyone I knew.
I was terrify of the I thought of having to go to the doctor.
He was trying to keep my mind off the pain. That fucking cactus needles hurts.

Out of nowhere, some dude called out that I look like Stevie Nicks and drove away
. That made me laugh but I move my knee and felt the sharp needles going in.
I was finally able to contact my father, whom was coming fast as possible to get me.
Then, this guy walking his dogs, comes out to us and sees my leg. He said he got a tweezer and scissors and will go get them. He only live a few houses down. Thank goodness!!! I could not walk but I was very grateful. He comes back and has those fancy scissors and tweezers. He told us that he sells medical supplies to all the hosiptals.
He started to cut a few needles and my dad shows up in his cars and he gets out to examine my legs. Ask to see something and he rips out the whole cactus!!!! Let me tell you, I've must of scared the neighbors with my screaming and cursing! The guys said" Only a father would do that."
He finishes take out the rest of the needles, some were in my leg pretty deep.
I got some alcohol rubbed on the area and was told that I would have a pretty bruise.
We thanked the guy for lending us his stuff and he told us to report the neighbor to the city because he hates that he putting bricks on a public sidewalk. I found that really funny. I guess he's not very fond of that douchbag lawyer whom, think it's cool to add cactus to their landscape.

I think we've all learn a valuable lesson.
Have any of you get a story like this? Any odd injury or just random act of kindness?
I'm just happy it wasn't worse. It amazes me on how some people react to these type of moments.

Perfect Birthday Dress

I saw this link for Queen’s Wardrobe from Bella. My goodness these are perfect for my birthday.


Did I mention how much I love loose dresses? The lace collar is to die for and it's only 39 dollars!!! Click here


It's so cute. I love the color and the ruffle sleeves. The little pin is super adorable. It's like a Dorothy dress. So sweet for only 49 bones. Click here.

I'm going to definitely save this site.

Also my B-day is not for a few weeks. I'm not sure what I'm doing. Maybe I will have a dinner with friends.

Back To School

I feel like singing that song Adam Sandler sang in Billy Madison, you know the one while he was waiting for the bus.

So today began with World Civilizations, the professor has a mild accent. I think he's from New Zealand/ Austrailia.
Then autobiography, which was rather scary because I have to write a 20 page paper on myself by the end of the semester. I have to figuere out something interesting I've done.
Last class was Spanish, my professor is 82 years old. You think I be bored but he was charming.
I finished classes, wandered about like an airhead.
I got invited to eat pizza at a dorm, it was surprisingly fun. My friend whom invited me left me there after 20 mins and I hung out with the people whom lived there. They were all super cool kids, except one whom hid in her room and didn't even say hi. It kind of made me wish I lived in one. I love the interaction with all the girls but knowing me, they all probably hate that I'm a clean freak.
After hanging in the dorms, I saw my friend Bob, we had French together all last year and he ask why I wasn't in it. Well, guess what I need to take French, this semester in order to take it in the spring. They only offer in the fall. Which means I won't be in class all year. :(
Unless I drop spanish because they are at the same time.
Weird, sad fucking day.

Anyways, whom else in still in college/ high school?

ps. I wore this outfit.
I was feeling so unoriginal.

What I've Done So Far

You know those days you feel like you accomplished so much and you realize that it's only lunchtime.

Well, I got up at six am to go to school for a breakfast and orientation for my scholarship.
It was what I expected, lots of boring speeches, but I know this year will be much better and I'll get to part of a bigger social circle. I even got to meet a few of my professors, whom are awesome. Some seem strict with class work but I'm really excited to take classes with them for next two years.
After the meet & greet, I finally purchased my books!! Only spent 76 dollars and the scholarship pays fro them.
I didn't get to go to store but I went home to make some lunch.
I burnt my toast. :(
But I still had some bread to finish making my grilled cheese and tomato sandwich.
Did I mention I have a large bunch of tomatoes from my garden?
So now, I'm online staring at the screen and airing out the smoke from my burnt toast.

So here's what I wore for the morning.



I got all dressed up and nearly everyone there was in jeans and flip flops!!!
I swear, I feel like the only college kid with enought effort to put on a pair of slacks and a nice chiffon top. Sorry but it really pissed me off to see that we were getting to put on a first impression to our future professors and most of the kids look like they just crawled out of bed. I know I can't control the world and how people dress. I came home and switch my tops for a more laidback look and took some pictures. Sorry they are kind of fuzzy but it's cloudy outside.

I'm Bad at Decisions

I found out I'm getting a check in the mail (not saying how much) but it's enough to let me buy a camera, 200-400 dollars.
I currently have a Olympus FE-230, with 7.1 Megapixel and 3x zoom.
It's okay and what I've been using since I started blogging. The downside the quality. My dad bought this back in 2006 for my mom. It's works really well outside but when I have bad lighting, I typically have to edit them on picnik. It's a point and shoot, so that makes in very portable and easy to pull out. Okay, not really because it takes a few seconds to turn on and take the image.

I'm debating on what kind of camera I want.
It be great to get one a little bigger and better quality.
I have been able to use this one.
My cousin bought one, while she was here for the wedding back in February. I use it a few times and I like the pictures we took. Very clear and with some more experience I could master it.
I'm not a pro and I just want to use for the concerts I attend and taking pictures for friends and family.

Lastly, I really like this one by Nikon. It's the same quality and better zoom and bigger display. Also it's cheaper.

So my basic question is which one would you buy or better yet, what camera do you currently use?

ps. I hope my inability to make a decision doesn't annoy you. I know I can be rather pathetic.

pss. Hope you have a nice week.

Closet Ideas

I'm cleaning out my closet. I have some crap that going to the goodwill but I have a few party dresses from high school.
I have no idea what to do with them. I probably won't wear them. My sister grab one and said she's wearing to homecoming next month.
I mean they aren't fabulous but because some I've worn once and one I've never even worn except for an hour during my senior photos. I don't think any consignment stores would want them.
Do you think I could post them? Or even sell them?
Where be a good place to start?







I'm pretty sure posting something like this on craigslist but I'm terrify of that site.

Why me????

Hung out with friends and we ate delicious chicken wings.
I am still the single one. And had to hear all their isses.
It's hard to deal when your two best friends are in a serious relationships with two different people..

One would love to marry her current BF, but both say they are too young and would want to be at least out of 4 year college and in the professional world before settling. I hope they do. They are the cutest thing.

The other two, bicker constantly. They kind of should break it off, the girl says she doesn't want to marry him at all and there is not physical attraction or even a common bond. My buddy gets depresses over her and he hopes she'll eventually want a commitment. I say they should just be friends but they refuse to listen me. I try to stay out of this shitty drama.

As for me, I really love the idea of love. I just hope I'm not as fucked up as some girls.
Dating just so damn complicated.


Also I know, I can be pretty random. I thinks it the fact I never sleep at night.
Thanks for reading.

Girl Crush.....

I'm in love with Luxirare. Damn, she can cook and has such a badass style.

I feel bad stealing her images but she got some of the best looking food shots, I've seen in a long time.

Tell me whom your crushing on right now. Or just about people you totally be into if you knew them in real life. Or just a person, you like to kick it with.
Sorry, if this seems lame but I can't sleep.

So This Is Number 100

I'm not sure if I should celebrate or just treat this like any other post.

But anyways, I've been avoiding blogging for a few days due to a massive speech but I finished it and did hopefully a good job. I need an A.

Here's an outfit post. I haven't done one in forever and I don't count the one last week because I was just trying it on to see how it looks.




This nice dress from JC Penny, I know I was shocked too. It fits loosely and the fabric is soft enough for those unbearable hot days. I wore this on Saturday to celebrate my parents anniversary.
So there is it, my 100th post. Maybe I'll be around the next 100.

Thanks everyone.

Big hugs to you all and lets all try to survive another week.

I'm Definitely Seeing This

Sigh, Heath Ledger.




This film looks so gorgeous.
I'm not the type of person to go to movies a lot, I much prefer sitting at home watching TCM or a DVD but I'll pay the ridiculous price to see this.

Any other films that should be of interest? I really want to see Alice in Wonderland, when that comes out.

What I want this fall.

BOOTs
BOOTs by RazzleDazzleMe featuring Minnetonka shoes

I really want a new pair of boots, I hate the cold but I adore all the cute stuff that comes out in the fall. I love to get some that are above the knee like the ones from Topshop or even these.

Current Inspiration

Inspired By Gala-Darlng.com
She did a post on an alphabet of Love.

So to start.
A... is for accepting losses. I think my favorite sunglasses are gone forever. :(

B... is for Boat trip. I've been on my dad's boat for the past two days. I got such a nice tan now.

C... is for Candy. I'm such a sugar addict. I prefer sweet things that are more fruity than sour.

D... is for dresses. I haven't worn pants in a while. I'm also obsessed with finding more dresses for layering for the fall and I'm really trying to find new ways to wear them.

E... is for Excitement. Overall, I ready for school to begin. I haven't bought much clothes for class instead I'm trying to do more DIY and I'm also very interested in finding a job.

F... is for Family. I spent today with my cousin and her two kids on out family boat. It was an experience to spend time with her. To be honest, she's very hard for someone to deal with. Her attitude is very rude and unappealing but somehow my opinion has changed. Her kids are so well-behaved. I had fun talking and just not having to deal with her drama.

G... is for Guess. Well, if you saw my post you've saw me in my new monokini by Guess. I still haven't worn in out yet but I really need to find a reason to.

H... is for hoodie. No clue why but I've been opting for my hoodies over those super cute cardigan sweaters. It's been very cool at night, lately I just wear a hoodie and long tank to sleep.

I... is for Ice Cream. Let's face it, when it's over 90 what's the only food you want.

J... is for jewelry. Again, as you can see I'm not big on the whole jewelry thing but I've been wearing more accessories a bit more often. I'm trying to work myself, into being comfortable to wear more layers of gold or silver.

K... is for Kings of Leon. I'm totally in love. Also very excited that they are coming back to Omaha. Last time, they had it at a small venue and it sold out fast.

L... is for Love. I'm obessed with anything romatic or even a little cheesy. I keep on talking about it, and wishing I could find it.

M... is for Money.
I need some.....

N... is for Nerdy boys. They seem to be getting cuter, I adore those glasses, fitted blazers and high top Converses.

O... is for Omaha. Seriously, this city gets better each year, well at least with the mall. But also those improvement have lead to some serious budget cuts, which keep on pissing me off. For instance, they closed all the pools last Sunday. And might be adding a tax for entertainment, including concerts and movie tickets.

P... is for perfume. I'm a little bit of a freak. I don't have a lot because most drive me crazy. But the few I have been wearing like crazy. I have Coolwater, which is okay but it reminds me of summer, then I have sweet peas blosson by Bath and Body Works. Again, not my favorite but still smells good. But my absolute favorite is Juste un Baiser by Fragonard. I adore it. Doesn't bother me at all. I wish I bought more.

Q... is for quilted bags. I'm having a mega thing for those style of bags. i just have my little one from Forever 21 but I really want a few more.

R... is for reading. Again not very into reading, well I was, but I have very long list of novels that I will need to read for two separate classes. I'm kind of excited and I think those books will be interesting to discuss and write more about. Also I just found out I have to write a 20 page autobiography for one of those classes. Wish me luck!!!

S... is for shoes!!!!!!!! How lame would it not be to say that. I'm such a little bitch, before I use to see those Sam Edelman boots worn by the Olsens and nothing now I see them and drool. Also, a months back I thought Doc Martins weren't really my style and now I want to buy a pair of vintage black Docs. I even have some pretty outfits ideas for them. Btw, I'm size 6.5, should I get a 7 or 6.

T...is for Topshop. Words can not express my obsession with this place. I'm so in love with all the bags and shoes. Especially those thigh high boots. They always seem to sell something I fancy.

U... is for underwear. You how you sometimes buy things, just cause they make you feel pretty, well that's how I feel about underwear. I want them frilly, lace, silky, even my plain cotton ones have to give me some sort of confindence boost. I'm sounding like such a dork but seriously if you spend as much time as I do in your undies, you totally understand.

V... is for Vintage. Not if you notice, I don't wear much, if any vintage. Most of my clothes are either given to me or bought from stores. But I do love those vintage pieces I have. Like my mom's biker jacket she gave me. It's incredibly warm and why get rid of something that fits me. Also I'm very picky and most vintage in Omaha is very poor quality, either stain or damage. I do want to be able to get mostly vintage clothes but at last this is where my insecurity comes in. I don't think I would get made fun of it's more of a will wanting to fit in a society where if something is old it's not cool. I do love some things from eBay, even some bloggers stores have exceptional items but some fear inside of me keeps prevents me from purchasing them.

W... is for WTF. My WTF moment lately has been their is this dude, and well probably he is a stalker. Not in that he follows me everywhere but I can't go a day on campus where he tries to hit on me. I tell him I'm busy but he doesn't seem to understand. Thankfully, my dear friend David has told me all about him and is trying to get him to leave me alone. Btw, David has saved numerous times from this guy.

X... is for X& Y, which is my favorite album by Coldplay. Speaking of Coldplay, during the concert, David texted me about going. He bought a ticket for me. I felt so bad because I already had one but during the whole show we texted each other.

Y... is for Yellow. That is my number one enemy on the color wheel. I avoid all shades, except gold and is that even consider yellow? I have one, maybe two things with yellow, not including PJs. I'm trying to get over that, but to me yellow is very overwhelming and bold. I can do red, even some orange but yellow is typically left out.

Z... is for zzzzzzzzzzzz. I've been working on this for over 2 hours. It's nearly one. Time for sleep.

Btw, happy Friday!! And thanks so much for all the sweet comments from my last post.

Saturday, August 1, 2009

DEAR WHOMEVER,

If you can find these in a size 6.5/7 and deliver them to my doorstep, I really appreciate it.


I can't believe they are selling them for over 600 dollars on eBay. I could probably get the ones by Balenciaga, btw I think those are it in the picture, for the same price.

But anyways, my birthday is in a few weeks. I'm getting excited for no real reason. I'm really hoping for a new phone, or an iTouch been dropping a few hints to the rents.

Well lately, I've been avoiding the mall, but one of my lovely relatives gave me a Younkers card. So I bought this lovely one piece from Guess. I'm not sure on how to wear it without a slutty, but maybe I should just go out and buy that sheer mesh dress from AA.
What do you think? I feel so flirty in this.
