Turkey Haul!

Yes, eight months later... =P But at least I can give you guys a mini-review now! 
I've worn this shirt a lot, its a nice dressy shirt, perfect for spring and summer!
I haven't worn this yet.. I feel like its too kiddy for me...

with flash
without flash
A purple plaid shirt, I've worn this without the belt, sleeves up with a belt right under the bust, and just open with a shirt underneath..

L-Rolled up Sleeve R-with grey vest (also from Turkey)
I never wore this either, because it's a little big on me..
I love stripes and nautical! I've worn this a few times because its more of a tunic than a shirt, I paired it with the red silky scarf from Marshalls, and looove it!
This is like a simple, but still nice tank top. It says "Stylish City Girl in Istanbul"
 Close ups..
Shop till you drop! I love the simple sequins on this shirt, again its thin and perfect for summer, and the wide neck lets me wear it hanging off one shoulder.
Though this looks weird hanging like that, its really nice on. I feel like its more edgier, and I've worn it a LOT! I feel like there is a slight pink color, but super hard to see.
A white vest, still haven't worn it. Any tips on how to wear it?
A turquoise necklace, super long!

Some ceramic bowls, I actually use the big orange one for my rings, the small orange one for small candy and gum, and the pink and purple for clips and hair ties.
I actually liked this when I first got it, (it came with a magazine) but the rings were made out of plastic, and I'm not into Twilight anymore.. 
I really like this clutch/messenger bag because of the nice detailing and pop of red! The strap isn't the best quality, but for $7, its pretty good!
This is probably the second most used purse in my closet... I LOVE the edginess of it, and the material, and I never had a good black purse, even though this is small, I use it a lot! And it was $10! 
L- Close up of the studs. R-The strap attached to make it a messenger bag!

I think thats it... if I missed anything, I wouldn't remember anyways =)

Children's Day!

Hey everyone! Tomorrow, April 23rd, is actually children's day! In Turkey, there is a children's day, just like mother's day and father's day. You can read more about it here.
The President and Vice President of Turkey invite the kids to the "white house" in Turkey, and they get to be "president" for half an hour and answer questions like what they would do in Turkey if they were the president. It's like a small party for them with treats and games.
To continue the culture here, we have activities and cake and small performances for the kids here, when I was younger, it was really fun, we would get money sometimes or small toys. Now that I'm older, me (and my friends) don't get all the little kid treats but we get to coordinate the activities, and watch the kids play and perform. I hear that this year there's a funny skit, I can't wait to see it!
So, I'm sure not many of my followers are still "kids" but to the kids at heart..

Armor Cage Rings

Hey everyone! Hope your spring break is going well, the days are going by so fast, and I realized I hadn't posted in a while! I just wanted to share with you guys a half DIY type of project.
So, I love the whole armor cage ring style, its so edgy, but without being too harsh. Here are some examples:
*From Google
I LOVE this one!
I was going through my moms rings yesterday, and noticed she had a lot of diamond rings (fake-because I got them for her =P) and I put them all on, and it totally reminded me of the cage rings!
Now I know this may be too flashy for some, but it looks great with just three on as well! And, you can put any simple ring on, but I didn't have any.
What do you guys think? Would you wear it?

Furniture Shopping

Hey everyone! So, since we moved, my baby brother has his own room now, and I gave him my old bed. Which means I need a new one! We've looked at a lot of beds, and I think I have it down to the last three, but I can't make up my mind... So I decided to ask you guys! =) The place the bed is going to go(most probably) is kind of an awkward place, which is why I can't really pick..
This is what we saw at one of the stores.. =D

I think this one is the best, I'm probably getting it..

I like that you can change the pink color to white, blue or black, but its a little low..

This one is nice, but really tall!
So what do you guys think?
Edit: By the time this post went up, we actually already bought the first "sleigh" one. What would you pick?

Free Stuff from LUUUX!

LUUUX is a site where you can blog, upload videos, comment, etc. You get LUUUX dollars for everything you do, and then you can trade them in for different things like Mulberry or Louis Vuitton purses, or Louboutin heels. You can also use them as a "gift card" as a discount for something you would like to buy.
These are the first three items you see when you want to redeem your points.
Apparently this website was really popular, but I just heard of it. I think that though it may be slow, you can save up the points and get great things. It is very similar to Suddenly Darling and Swagbucks.
I thought I would share this with you guys, because who doesn't like free stuff? =) If you guys would like to join through my referral link (I would looove if you did) you can click here. If you would like to look around and make your account without being referred you can click here. If you already have an account, let me know, I would love to be friends! =)

*Please note: I am not affiliated with any of the companies mentioned above. I was not paid or asked to do this post.

Cake Pops!

Cake pops are cake, covered in chocolate on a stick! They look absolutely delicious!

They come in so many different styles, for every occasion!

Which ones your favorite?
Images from Google
I really want to try one, or make them at home, has anyone tried these? Are they good?
I'm wondering how it would be if there were ice cream ones for the summer =)

Jamba's Good For Me-Right?

Hey everyone! So I feel better right now, we actually went to Jamba Juice today, and I haven't been there in foreeeverrr! I got the Mango Peach Topper, its like a mini-meal, at least thats what they say...
I'm really getting used to these photobooth pictures =) Am I blogging too much now? =P In other news, I just saw the trailer for Monte Carlo, is it a Disney movie? I wasn't expecting it to be PG! Though it's just like the Lizzie McGuire Movie, I really want to see it, because I love Selena, and her accent is so cute! If you haven't seen the trailer, here it is:

Have a great weekend!

Thumbs Up?

Hey guys, I'm still sick... I actually got worse, and me and my dad stayed home yesterday. I just wish I had no work to catch up on, that's the worst part of being sick...
I think I'm getting better, so I did a thumbs up =)
I'm liking these photobooth pics.. they are so easy to take and upload! =) I really want some chocolate pudding right now... mmm
