Blog: Shopping, Makeup, Pictures, and Fun Times with Friends!

I didn't get enough pictures to make these all a separate post, so I figured I'd just put them together.

This was actually from our Cooper's Rock trip

I'll start with shopping trips! I went to Retrotique with Arianna, tried on a few dresses, and bought one. I really wanna go back and get another!

And then yesterday, I went to Goodwill with Cleo and Ling and got an amazing dress and jacket

Then I went to Rachel's house and we all played with makeup, and I took some pictures! I'm not very good at shooting in low light though DX I prefer natural lighting, so I'll be taking so many pictures when it finally gets warm outside!

Diary: Discovering and Realizing Dreams

I found this amazing dress at Goodwill the other day.  It's real silk, made in India, and full of intricate beading.  I can't even imagine how much this must have originally cost!  I'm so curious as to what kind of person had this in their closet, and how it ended up at Goodwill for only $15.  

I see crazy fancy dresses like this and vintage stuff all the time at stores like Goodwill and Salvation Army.  Even though I have no idea where to appropriately wear it besides in a photo shoot, (and I might just wear it to class because I love it so much), I got this dress, and it made me discover what one of my dreams is.  I just really want to collect clothing!  Not just to wear, but like how a person collects art.  Of course, I will wear them too, and do photo shoots with the ones I can't wear in everyday life as much.  (That's also one of the reasons I want to live in Tokyo, I feel like I can wear my style, even some of the crazier stuff, outside and be accepted.) 

I just love having like a library of clothes. I don't like getting rid of them if my style changes or whatever, because when I (very rarely) do, I will come back to thinking about whatever it is I got rid of, and other ways of wearing it with the new clothing and styles I've accumulated since then. I want to have a library of  all kinds of clothes from all around the world.  Plus, when you can find dresses, quite commonly at second hand stores, that should be hundreds of dollars for only $15, I can create an amazing clothing library worth waaaaay more for pretty cheap!

One issue with this dream is my plans of moving to Japan...Japanese housing is notoriously small, plus travelling with all of the clothes I have now??  Probably very difficult.  I am torn between my dreams of moving so far away and having a big collection! D:  Well, not really torn, I am DEFINITELY going to live in Japan somehow...

Idk, if anyone has any advice, opinions, ideas, or suggestions, feel free to comment! :D I will find a way to make this happen someday though!

Review: Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow in Solstice

Here's another review of something I've had in my collection for a while! I love all things glittery, duo chrome, and iridescent, and this is all of those!

Look of the Day: 3

Just a cute look for a school day!  The dress is a highly altered Gunne Sax that I got online

Review: Jesse's Girl Glow Stix Lip gloss in Tangerine and Wicked

I got these a while ago because as you probably noticed, I love everything rainbow, unique, and it's the color of opals! I got the colors Tangerine and Wicked.

Anyway, it has no smell or taste which is good.  It doesn't show up really noticeably unless you use a lot, which can be fun for certain looks, and it doesn't really last long, so good for maybe photo shoots and fun temporary looks.

And here they are actually on my lips.  First is Wicked, and second is Tangerine

Then I tried putting a big glob of Tangerine just to see.  I definitely want to play around with these more.

Blog: Warm Day at Cooper's Rock

I spent today's almost 70 degree weather outside surrounded by all beautiful people; my boyfriend, two best friends, and a few others.  Today was just too nice of a day not to share!  We all wanted to go outside and enjoy the day, but didn't really have any plans.  So, we just ended up together on campus, bumped into friends, then decided to go to Cooper's Rock, and everyone who has one brought their cameras XD

Here's before we went to Cooper's Rock.  I love how we all wore dresses and skirts without even planning what to wear together!

He is so beautiful <3

Then at Cooper's Rock

The bit of leftover snow made my toes numb though X(

I can't wait for it to warm up for real, so I can wear dresses without having to bundle up and we can go on more outside adventures!
