Oh fantasy free me...

Happy almost Halloween!
The people here have been dressed up in their costumes since the beginning of last week so I guess we've been celebrating for a while.
But just to ourselves. We've been busy all weekend but not too much to skip Halloween altogether. I had three complete costumes this weekend.

1. The first was just a little something I put together for Rocky, a homage to Columbia if you will, since I sparkled like the night sky. I still would like her entire outfit please. But anyway. Once again we saw the Rocky Horror Picture Show. It's tradition. Smiles. I didn't know what makeup to do for the outfit so I just decided on who else? Lady Gaga and her "Judas" makeup. And that's Veronica in all her Magenta-ness.

2. Being a zombie is fun. Enough said. Just look how disgusting Veronica looks. Smiles.

3. And what can I say about our mother monster Lady Gaga? I absolutely loved doing her "Born This Way" zombie look for Halloween. Wouldn't you? Exactly. I just wish my hair was longer. And pink.


Anyway. I hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween weekend.

We are stars...

Warning: Veronica birthday photos overload. Smiles.

Celebration Day #1 (technically #2 since #1 was the Cokes toast)
Veronica and I went to Burger with Norma and Marcy (it was also her birthday) and it was yum. The photos speak for themselves. The shirt I wore I bought that day, and I cut the shoulders off of them. For being the first time I've done it, I was pretty happy with it. And the burger was amazing as always. Oh and horchata shakes. Enough said.

To see the entire day, watch Veronica's birthday video here.

Celebration Day #3
We went to the gym on this day mind you. But that didn't stop us from going to Trader Joe's and buying a meringue cake for Veronica. I have to say it was crazy good. Especially with pumpkin ice cream all over it. Highly recommend it. Unfortunately we don't have any pictures of us being gluttonous so that benefits you. Smiles.

Celebration Day #4
Love this day. So Vern and I went on a date downtown to Pizza My Heart which is always good. It was packed so we were lucky we got a table. We took some pictures in the restaurant and went over to this building a couple blocks up and took more pictures. A lot of them were on her film camera so I might update you guys on that. I actually curled my hair for the first time in a while so I felt really girly.

All in all, it was a wonderful weekend. I'm glad Veronica had a great time even though she wanted to go home for the weekend. I did too, but we had each other and that's always good.
I really miss home. I'm counting the days until Thanksgiving. But Halloween weekend is going to be insane. Veronica and I will probably have a different look each night. I'm excited to show you all. Smiles.

We're gonna dance on fire...

As you may have seen here, here, and here, I love all things sequined.
Therefore it is not a surprise that I fell in love with a little something called Disco Pony.

"The Natalie Gold" dress

I discovered Zoey Bittleston of Make Shift Model from reading the lovely blog of Natalie Suarez of Natalie Off Duty, which is one of my favorite blogs to read. She is the CEO and designer of Disco Pony and has these amazing as balls sequin pieces. To put it simply, I want every single one of them, particularly the "Natalie" dress shown.

So I was daydreaming (as always), and wondered what I would wear with this incredible dress if I was to own it. With all of these thoughts bouncing around in my head, I went to Polyvore and had some great fun.

It's such an amazing dress, I would feel so lucky and glamorous to wear it.
Absolutely my kind of dress. Smiles.

Anyway.
Bestie Veronica turned 19 yesterday and we had a fun day. Just going to post some photos of our midnight toast for her birthday. I'll have an official birthday post for her after this weekend, since we're going to wreak more havoc. So excited.

Anytime will do...

So this outfit post was completely accidental. I'm wearing a hat for goodness sake. I never do that. Haha.
Yesterday, Veronica and I were studying for a test we have tomorrow and we definitely needed a break. We were in the need for groceries anyway so we decided to head downtown to Safeway and Trader Joe's.
I hadn't really worn these shoes out yet since I got them. My sister got them for me from Urban Outfitters because they were on sale (and she loves me) and I love them. They started hurting after about 4 hours of wearing them and that was only because I was running around Santa Cruz getting groceries and hopping on buses since we don't have a car.
But Veronica got the idea of doing a video for her Youtube channel of our adventure downtown and it turned out pretty well.
Best part of the trip was that I finally bought pumpkin ice cream from Trader Joe's. If you haven't tried it, shame on you. And go get it now since it's seasonal.
Anyway. Enjoy:

Because it's all so clear...

So I guess October in Santa Cruz means being incredibly hot as balls outside.
Veronica got a couple shots of me with my trusty water bottle before class yesterday. I'm still feelin' a little sniffly and gross so this is the best I can do.

Updates:
- I've started my Christmas Lust/Wish List. It's going very well. Smiles.
- I found a great blouse at Salvation Army yesterday and all clothes were 50% off. I can't wait to wear it.
- I've added a few inspirational wedding dresses to my wedding folder on my computer (we all have one, ladies it's okay). I should do a post about it one day.
- I have some new obsessions: Jenny Packham and Tyler Shields' photography. Enough said.
- Oh and new crushes, Will Arnett and Colton Haynes. Love.
- The Vampire Diaries is on tonight. And you know I love me some vampires. I would love to do a photoshoot like this.

Anyway, I think it's time for a trip back home. I'm sick as well as homesick.
Talk to you soon. xo

It's a Simple Plan kind of day. Smiles.

So listen close...

Hair inspiration.

As you can see, I've been a little bit obsessed with the hair trend, Ombré.
I'm in college, so every chance I get, I'm on the internet just scouring anything and everything. Also, I seem to be getting bored with my hair. Again. I'm growing out my bangs again because I miss not having bangs. And every time I look at Kristen Stewart's beautiful hair, I get sad. So yeah.
There's only so much you can do to long hair without cutting it all off. So what do I think of?
Changing the color of my hair.
I've never dyed it before which makes me a little uneasy. But if I do dye it, it will most likely be Ombré. I'm all about baby steps people.

If I were to do it anytime soon, I think the winner would be Megan Fox's hair. It starts at the perfect length and we almost have the same hair color. Hers is even darker than mine, so if works on her, hopefully it would work on me.
Here's hoping.

Oh and sorry about the lack of outfit posts, and just posts in general. I got sick over the weekend. Still love you all, though. Smiles.

All this longing...

Lovely weather we're having no?
I've been living in Santa Cruz for two years and the weather still confuses me every time. This week started out really rainy and I thought it was going to last all week. I was wrong.
Today was a very nice sunny and breezy day. I brought a cardigan to class with me, which I didn't even need at all. Thanks to the weather, I'm happy to say I finally have an outfit post to share with you.

The color is kinda off in that last picture but these are the shorts I made this summer. I've only worn them a couple times, but I love them. For my sister's birthday, I made her some distressed studded denim shorts and I had some studs left over. So I googled some styles of studded shorts and found the Sabo Skirt version and had myself a little DIY project. I went to a thrift store and found some Levis and cut the legs off, distressed them, and then added the studs. I really like the way they turned out.

Some updates:
I've been really into lipstick, which is really different for me. Roomie and bestie Veronica convinced me to buy three lipsticks from NYX last night. We made a fall lipstick video for her Youtube page here. Oh and last weekend I also bought a lipstick from Maybelline and I'm loving it. Who woulda thunk?

Oh and I'm going to clear up some confusion if anyone has any: A while ago, I mentioned in a post that I would be posting some old drafts of blog posts because there are big gaps in between posts. So if you are wondering why I'm posting with last year's date, those are drafts I'm publishing.
Love you all. xo

Year after year...

"On October 3rd, he asked me what day it was." - Mean Girls
Yes I just quoted from Mean Girls, but October 3rd means it's bester Jimmy Jam's 20th birthday!

My mom took the new photo a couple weeks ago before I left because I hadn't seen him for a while so we decided to get some Panera (yum) and chat about stuffs and catch up (me wearing a really blah outfit since I wanted to be comf). And the other is of us in kindergarten. I know, aww. I've known that guy since we were little (a really long time, about fourteen years), he's one of my best friends, such a great friend. I hope he has an amazing day. xo

In other news, I don't know if I said this before but my roommate and bester Veronica does make up tutorials and reviews on youtube. The other day she decided that I was going to be in one of her videos and we did a fall nail polish trends video together. I was terrified because I feel that blogging is way different from talking to a camera. And I can perform in front an audience but I can't just talk to a camera. That's her forte. I'll stick with blogging. But anyway, she's really good at what she does, so if you have a youtube account, you should subscribe to her here.

And here is our first video together:


Yes, I'm making drunk eyes, but yeah.
Enjoy. She's probably going to make me do some more. Smiles.
Oh and I'll make sure to put up some more outfit posts.
And if you didn't watch the premiere of Dexter tonight, you should.
xx

ANOTHER THING I FORGOT (story time):
A day or so ago, I woke up and checked my blog. To my surprise, I saw that Natalie Suarez from Natalie Off Duty commented on my last post and I freaked out. If you don't know who she is, shame on you. She is a big inspiration to me and seeing her comment made me really happy. Anyway. Smiles.
