Mini Update: Sunglasses + Grouchy Strawberry!

Hey everyone!
Just a little update, some glasses I bought from Kohl's on my baby brother (he looks like a cute little fly or something really familiar but I can't remember) and Grouchy Strawberry got a makeover! She's a pirate Michael Jackson. At least to me.... =P

He kind of reminds me of a picture from a magazine, huge glasses, no smile.. =P

What have you guys been up to lately?

A Little Bit of Everything Haul

Hello Everyone!
I can't believe its been two weeks since my last post. I seriously don't know where the time flies. School is going to start in a month and I haven't started my AP English summer homework. Woops. On a happier note, I have a collective haul for you! It's little bits from here and there that I just never posted.

I needed a white purse, and though this isn't white all over, its perfect for summer! It was on sale at Asos, I think for $33 but I had a coupon so I got it for $26. When it first came I didn't like it, I felt like $26 was too much, because the color looked off-white, but now... I  absolutely love, love, love this purse.  I wore it everywhere for about a month. Then I got worried that it would get old so I let it rest a little. It has this (vintage?) feel to it, and it looks expensive (at least to me). I love the straw detailing, I love that its a clutch and a crossbody, and I love that it's boxy. It's my little baby <3 =)

I heard about Juice Beauty from and they had a special code, for some samples and a free full size product, so I ordered =)
This is the Organic Facial Rejuvenating Mask. I have to say I only used this twice, but I didn't see anything different or feel different. I don't think its worth buying.
SPF 30 Mineral tinted moisturizer. This is an okay product, its not amazing, but I have to say the smell is so weird, it reminds me of spicy peppers. 
These are... grouchy strawberries! (Inside joke between me and Leslie Burke) I found them at Ikea, and aren't they so cute? One is mine, and I gave the other to Leslie.
Shiny bracelet I found at Macy's, on sale for $8 I think. I love it!

I got these two necklaces from Forever 21, at $1.50 each, I had to buy them =) I haven't worn them yet because they are a little high (close to my neck) so I need to extend them.
Color changing nail polish! It goes from purple to pink, and you can actually see the difference in color!
These are also from Forever 21 ($8). I couldn't choose at the store so I bought both, I gave the silver one as a gift to a friend.
Found this book on eBay, it was only $3 or $4. I do like it, but I like Lauren Conrad's Style book more.

Remember there was a crazy sale on Dillard's? Yeah me neither. But I had seen this (SPARKLY!) purse and put it in my shopping cart ($25 from $130) and it sort of waited there for a while, and then it was sold out! =(
Luckily I found it on eBay! =) I did pay a little more, but I guess that was my fault for not buying the thing quickly in the first place.
The brand is Gianni Bini, I've actually never heard of it before, but found out its only sold at Dillard's
"Love" ring from Asos, $4

I bought this necklace from Kohl's, I love its edgy feel, it was Simply Vera by Vera Wang, and it was on clearance and with coupon I think it was $3? I'm actually thinking of wearing it as a belt as well =)
After a few months, I went to Kohls again and found the bracelet! It actually fits my wrist perfectly and I love how tiny and cute it looks compared to the necklace =)

Got these from Wal-mart, its Hard Candy's Glamoflauge concealer and Fox in a Box blush and bronzer duo. The concealer actually came with a little pencil concealer, and I use it a lot, I think it works well. I actually bought it after watching Amarixe's (youtube) video on products she regretted buying =P
I feel like the blush and bronzer don't really show up on me. But then again, I don't have much experience with blush or bronzer.

Hope you all have an amazing week!
*Update: I finally started Shakespeare's Twelfth night!

Movie Time: Gnomeo and Juliet!

Hey everyone!
Another movie post/review for you guys =) I watched Gnomeo and Juliet not too long ago and I decided I would share hoping some of you might have watched it too. I'm sure most of you know the classic Romeo and Juliet plotline, and even though I read it three years ago, I remembered most things and the references were pretty funny.

Gnomeo and Juliet, in case you don't know is about the Capulet and Montague families as garden gnome neighbors. They are enemies and fight for the best garden by tending to their plants as soon as their owners (the people living in the house) leave in the morning.
There is romance, comedy, and adventure all in one, which I'm sure everyone will enjoy, since it is a family movie. Overall, my favorite scenes would have to be when Gnomeo and Juliet get ready (I won't say what for) and when they gnomes order the lawn mower.
The gnomes are so adorable!
Let me know if you watched it, and if not, I definitely recommend you do!

There's No Place like Home

Hey everyone!
I know I have been gone for a week, I've been on a week long sleepover/camp with some friends, then I went to LA/San Diego over the weekend. I have to say I  missed you guys soooooo much, it's crazy. I'm back recharged and refreshed, ready to make some changes. I feel like I have learned so much about me and others.
I realized I need something new, something different, it's literally always the same thing over and over again, and I can say that I am sick and tired of it. Some people assume things about me, and I can see that they don't know the real me, nor do they put effort to. I find that a little sad because I personally love learning new things about other people, I learn new things everyday even from people I've known my whole life because people constantly change!

Lastly, I'm going to try to be more positive in life, I realize that I can be a pessimist, but that happens a lot more when I'm around people who are constantly complaining or being negative. I feel like I'm being burdened by their weight, and this doesn't help anyone in the long run. I'm going to try to have a positive outlook on life and just relax. =) Oh how I wish I could live by the beach....

So, I'm back! Hopefully better and stronger than ever ..
