Oh Dear... Catch-Up Once Again!

I'm terrible!
I'm awful!
I should be thrown in blogger-jail!

BUT. With the start of a new school year at a new school (Cal State LA here I come!) I feel rejuvenated and excited to post a whole slew of new outfits! I'm making a new name for myself and that means I need a wardrobe to match.

Of course that doesn't mean that I suddenly have a bunch of money to spend on new clothes; I will of course continue to give new life to old clothing that I've had for years or found in thrift shops, occasionally adding in a gem I found in the sale section or online, as per usual. But I do feel my state of mind and, consequently, my style changing and I'm hoping to find new ways to express myself through my clothing choices!

With all that said, here's all the outfits I've had backlogged and from now on all posts shall be brand new and up to date!

And pics from my Fairy Tale Birthday Party from (*cringe*) back in April (Have I mentioned how terrible I am at this whole blogging thing?)

"Good" portion of the party -- a tea party in the park!
Little Mermaid themed table with PB&J Sea Stars, Fish N' Chips and Lemon cupcakes with Lavender frosting (which turned blue outside-- weird!)
Cinderella Table with Lemon cupcakes and Buttercream frosting, doughnut hole Acorns, and Cloud Puff meringues and Hansel and Gretel's Trail Mix 
Tea Station
"Evil" part of the party, where it's back to my house for Dark Drinks made with Apple infused rum and Pomegranate infused vodka!
Jack's Magic Bean Soup (homemade blackbean soup) and Beanstalks Up In The Clouds (Lemon-herb seasoned asparagus with goat cheese)
Playing Pin the Horn on the Unicorn!
This is George. And he is still on our wall.

Is It November Yet?

It is! Although you wouldn't have believed it until today.

Hello white skies!!

LA is known for it's "perfect" weather, though coming from someone who grew up in Fog City, the constant 80+ degree weather gets to be a drag after a few seasons. So when I woke up this morning to cloud cover and a chill in the air, I got a little too excited. 

So I made coffee and blueberry waffles and threw on my comfy socks! 

And to go with my pretty little pastel theme, my new pink duct tape wallet that my 11-year-old neighboor made for me! it's so pretty! I'm in love with it
And my wonderful new debit card that I just have to show off because I designed it myself :p

So I made my way to Trader Joes and got all the makings for black bean soup and herb-and-goat-cheese-stuffed pita bread. Yummy! 

Now if you'll excuse me, it's time to go wrap myself up in my cozy blanket and binge on some LOTR. Happy Saturday!

I Have No Excuse!

Yeah. Let's just skip past the fact that I haven't posted anything in 2 months, okay? Okay.

Alright, so I have no excuse! I'm a terrible procrastinator! 

And you know how if you put something off for too long then you're just like OMG FORGET IT. Yeah well, I'm new to this blogging thing and that's what happened. 
There we go.

Moving on!
Time to do a little catch up Glee style. Just read the following in 
Cory Monteiths' (R.I.P. :[ ) voice:
Here's what you missed on Glee Honeysuckle Cyanide!

Wine Tasting in Napa for Molly's Birthday


4th Of July!
At a friends house in Costa Mesa on this giant field at the top of a hill with a virtually 360° view of fireworks going off in all the surrounding cities, including Disneyland! It was CRAZY.
EXPECTO PATRONUM!! (Also known as the reason I love Ingrid so much)
Costume Change! And scene change as we head over to the Goat Hill Tavern

And random sweaty guy who jumped in our picture! Then Mico goes "Hey why don't the two of you each kiss me on the cheek?" and we look at each other and we're all like "Hmm... NAW" and then this happened :p


When my friend Melissa & her BF came down from San Francisco to spend a week with me!

Ridin' in style!                                    Venice Beach

Out shopping of course.                           Universal!
LA Girls for the night!


Beach Funtimes!


Which I might dedicate a full post to actually, because it was beautiful and wonderful to see my family and I need a full post to at least be able to look back on years from now and remember fondly :) Here's a peek though

 Presque Isle at the pier near my Grandparent's house where we always get icecream. My Madre and little bro
 Oh, you know, just the view from the backyard of their house on Grand Lake. No big deal (!!!!) So beautiful every single night. I can't even BEGIN to describe Michigan weather in August
 The first time I've seen my dad play in 3 years since I moved to LA! I always forget how FUCKING INCREDIBLE he is -- and I'm not just saying that because we're related by blood. I mean really. It's impressive. And his old friend Jimmy McCarty from The Rockets joined him onstage for a few songs.
The Fam Bam! Beautiful rainy day driving through our old neighborhood in Livonia so we stopped in a great little Irish pub for lunch
My dad's friend's gorgeous house that we stayed at the last few nights. I'm sorry, I'm really just in love with this house, I had to take a picture. I mean come on -- look at the view outside the window of my room! How could you not fall in love?
And getting a drink with my parents (weird!) at the airport bar since our flight had been delayed for 5 hours. My mom never orders anything but vodka tonics so I told her to live a little and get a Cosmo with me. So she did :)


And NightLife at the Academy of Sciences. 
Getting drunk at an interactive museum complete with a planetarium and aquarium = WIN. 


But now that school has started up again, it's back to your regular programming. 

Let the regularly updated outfit posts commence!
