we were boxing the stars

Enlisted the help of my bff Sandy to take pictures as we frolicked around a random strip mall. How very quintessential jersey.

We also went thrifting. After five minutes in the store, I had managed to scour a dozen blouses. With the help of Sandy, who has an extremely discerning eye compared to my very lenient one, she was able to help me narrow down the choices to two blouses. I also picked up the most AMAZING dress (well, at least I think so. Sandy thought otherwise) for 6 bucks. Will show in the next post :)

^What an awkward face

Prom is tomorrow and I don't know what to do with my hair or makeup (both of which I'm doing by myself). I also have to brave false eyelashes and stick on nails (both of which I've never used before). Did I also mention that it was going to thunderstorm tomorrow? Wtf.

Please excuse me, as I have to pluck my heinous eyebrows and start to fathom about what the hell I'm going to do tomorrow.

my new love

Let me make it clear that I strongly believe that I am in love with this vest. I don't think I've ever fallen so hard for a piece of clothing in my life. Hell, I feel stronger about this vest than I did some of my past boyfriends. I really need to prioritize.

Vest: Zara, Jeans: Cheap Monday, Boots: BCBGirl, Shirt: Express, Wreath: DIY, Bag: Chanel

Anyway, we had a whopping high of 58 degrees with clouds and scattered rain today. Great first day of summer? I also literally combed all of central Jersey trying to find a remote for my nikon d40 so I wouldn't have to keep using self timer to take photos (any blogger can agree with me that it is a pain. in. the. ass.). One camera shop, one specialty store and two best buys later, I returned home empty handed. However, I did place an order at this little camera store, so I should be getting a remote soon. YAY.

On a happier note, my cousin got engaged today. In bermuda. On a private beach her now-fiance rented out. The rock is supposed to be HUGE too. I kind of hate her right now. Kidding (not really).

On the phone:

Val: Oh my god, congrats. When's the wedding?
P: Next year. You better start dieting. NOW.

I love my family.

may flowers

I've spent the past week soaking up the sun, hanging out with friends, and finally having the opportunity to start some useless DIY's, like the headband/flower wreath thing above :) I might be considering selling some on etsy if enough people are interested. Let me know!

Prom is this friday. Why am I so not excited?

My camera's battery is acting up, so webcam it is.

So, I went to the mall yesterday and picked up what would be the most perfect white tee. EVER. It was from express, of all places and only cost me 8 bucks. I'm seriously considering going back to stock up.

I also picked up this bag from forever 21 (yes. I know) for 5 dollars. CRAZINESS. I need to shop at the mall more.

Gotta go now to my first MAGIC BULLET party ever and bond with my friends over smoothies. Bye!

It's been raining nonstop for the last three days. This lack of sun completely zaps my energy. I'm about to keel over due to random exhaustion as I type this entry. Must...nap.
