Birthday Girl.

I'm sixteen! Just thought you all should know =)


Shiny Leggings Make Any Day Brighter.

Today happened to be super uneventful. Well except for this really moving assembly we had today about race, discrimination, violence prevention, and personal identity. Thankfully I got over the lame part of the day because I got to wear my new shiny latex leggings today! They added quite a shine to my day and apparently everyone else liked them too, even some boys. Haha.

The Outfit:

black tunic: Target
silk scarf: from a friend
black elephant necklace: Forever 21
shiny black latex leggings: Target
gold flats (not shown): from Grandma

dark grey pointy toe flats: Kohl's


10 Days? Oh Yeah.

Guesswhatguesswhatguesswhat?! My birthday is in 10 days; I'll finally be 16. I'm superexcited for that. It'll be Halloween, I'll get new things, and I'll be sixteen! I'm not really expecting all that much just money, gift cards, and maybe some clothes? Ultimately I'd love to get a Nikon D60, but those dreams were already dashed. I have to buy one with my own money. Boo. Thank goodness I have a summer job though.

Even though Halloween falls on a Friday this year, I'm not going to have a party that day. I'll got trick or treating with my friends and to this Halloween dance at school. Hopefully that won't be lame. A lot of people don't want to go to the dance because it's right on Halloween. The day after though, I'll have honor choir reherasal and that night my party! Originally I wanted to go to Fright Night but eventually that got to be way to difficult. Instead I'm planning on going to Cheesecake Factory and a movie with ten of my friends. I have a feeling that'll turn out to be a lot of fun.

Birthday Shnaz - Things I hope to buy with birthday money:

It's not a lot because I really don't need much clothing-wise. I hope to get books and some things that I wouldn't expect because I absolutely LOVE surprises.

And Today's Outfit (kind of boring, I know):

white v-neck: Hanes
magenta tank top: Old Navy
black elephant necklace: Forever 21
supercolorful scarf: MommaDukes.
black overdye skinny jeans: Pac Sun
dark grey pointy-toe flats: Kohls

Hmm, am I the only one that wears a ridiculous amount of bracelets everyday?

Lately I've kind of been in a rut lately as far as outifts and it sucks a little. With a mix between the cold, AP Bio studying, and other ridiculous amounts of homework I've had no inspiration. I've been basing everything around comfort and warmth. Basically that comes down to wearing v-necks, tee shirts, and scarves. Hopefully though, I'll get used to all those things and bring back some good outfits.



I've never really listened to Lyyke Li, but the video for her song I'm Good I'm Gone is free on iTunes this week. Both the song and the video are really good.
See/hear for yourself:
*I tried to upload the actual video four times and failed miserably. So that's the link*
In other news I finally got some super shiny latex leggings. I've wanted a pair for the longest time and I was saving up to buy a pair from American Apparel, but I came across a pretty decent pair at Target. Yeah I know of all places Target, crazy right? But hey it's all good. I don't have a picture now but I'll get one soon.

I had the day off for Yom Kippur! So I chilled at home and did homework. Then that night, I went to the mall with my mom to buy a couple things for the Sweet Sixteen I would be attending Saturday night. There's more about later though.

Saturday Part 1:
I had honor choir rehearsal 8:30 to 12 and like the first two times the music was absolutley beautiful. We were tested on even more music (gross), and then chose roomates for the All-State performance weekend. I'm rooming with a friend I did All Eastern Choir with, and two other girls from her school. I'm thinking that it'll be pretty fun even though I miss my really good friends' birthday party. Hmm, there's always next year though.
white v-neck: Fruit of the Loom
teal tank top: Old Navy
black elephant necklace: Forever 21
scarf: Mommy!
cuffed darkwash skinny jeans: Easy Pickins

Saturday Part 2:
I was invited to a Come As You Aren't themed Sweet Sixteen. Basically you were supposed to stereotype yourself and dress as the opposite. It took me the longest time to think about an idea because I've never ever put myself into a stereotype, but two days before I finally thought of one. I figured that I'm pretty girl, so I chose to go as a skater/tomboy. I still kept to my oversized pearl and elephant necklace staples but added in some things that I'd never normally wear.

Needless to say, it was a ridiculous amount of fun. It was pretty small with only about 20 or 30 people, but I had a lot of fun. Some people came up with really good ideas, and others dressed pretty normally. The parents were probably the best though! They all had super-elaborate outfits.
My Outfit
yellow hoodie: Roxy (from Marshalls)
loose grey v-neck: Target
ridiculously cool fitted: Pac Sun
black elephant necklace: Forever 21
darkwash skinny jeans: Zan Di
black white & pink etnies: Journeys - from way back in 6th grade

So that's been my week. Sorry for the crappy picture quality, I'm stuck with using my Blackberry until I get a new one and I have no idea when that's going to be. Possibly for my birthday? Maybe, hopefully.


Wake Me Up When September Ends.

With it being October 1st, September is officially over and what a month it was. Between starting school, studying like a fiend for AP Bio (and doing pretty decently, yeay!), and hanging out with friends I didn't have much time to update. I think now that one of the hardest parts of the year is over, I'm ready to start blogging more regularly again. 

So some important things to think about:
1. The first half of the marking period is almost over!
2. No school yesterday or today -- Thank you Jewish holidays
3. 30 days until Halloween/My Birthday! -- Yeah, I'm a Halloween Baby. 

The most important thing on that list would most likely be Halloween/My Birthday. I'm finally going to be 16! I plan to go trick-or-treating with my two best friends and then to the Haunted Hawkins dance thrown at my school. The day after, I plan to go to Fright Fest at Six Flags with some of my friends. And for the most important question, what am I gonna be for Halloween? Originally I planned to be a hipster/American Apparel addict so I'd have an excuse to buy a ridiculous amount of clothes from American Apparel. My other idea that I'll most likely go with is to be a cheetah. I have a lot of cheetah print clothes, and I've never been an animal for Halloween so I think it'll be fun. 

So otherwise I'm excited because I'm on my first break of the school year! Because of Rosh Hoshashanna (spelling?) I didn't have school yesterday and I don't have school today either. Today I'm staying at home, relaxing, finishing up last minute homework, and studying for my Euro test on Friday. Yesterday was a lot of fun though. I hung out with my best friends Kim and Jasmin. Kim just got a MacBook because her computer completely busted out. Of course the first thing we did was hit up photobooth. As I've said before, I'm pretty much addicted, and unfortunately I don't have a laptop webcam of my own. Here's some pictures:

The besties & I have some pretty good times =)

This is what I've been up to lately. I'll be back at school tomorrow and busy again, but I'll try to update more often. Look forward to some new outfits!
