U've Been Acting Shady!!!

Well ... I have not been shopping anymore since school started "Thank You God". I was kinda afraid that once I started that I woudn't be able to stop. I went into the mall yesterday with my wallet...but this time it was different ...I had a strict goal in: Go in get your eyebrows threading...AND COME OUT. *No looking in stores. *No window shopping. *No let me just see how this fits on me. *No lets go see if they have anything new. *No going back for items that I said I would be back to get. NONE OF THAT. Just IN and Out. Lol. These tactics definetely worked. All the things I taught myself in shopping rehab were a success..Lol.

Anyway, the eyebrow threading lady was closed and I was pissed. So I decided to go ahead and get them maxed since I just needed them cleaned up and not shaped. It was a total success.

A few weeks back, when I was going through my relapse I bought a few pair of shades. Now I am in love. They fit me so well. The good thing is that they were only $5. I got them on sale.:

Who Knew They Made Leopard Shades:
Forever21- $5.80

Rose colored Glasses Literally. The lens are PINK!
Strut- $5.00

Afriad of Motorcycles Shades
Strut- $5.00
**These are my Favorite**

Since I have backed off from shopping it has made me realize that I still dont have much stuff. I go in my closet looking for something to wear and I stil can't find anything. That is the fuel to my fire.

p.s. My nails are all chipped and keep in mind I got them painted yesterday!!

Beauty at a Pause.

Well, Hellooo Lovelies, :). Lets's see... where can I start? Well, I started school at Otis College of Art & Design (for Architecture/Landscapes/Interiors) in L.A., transferring from an art school in Dallas, TX (for interior design) and it has already been a busy week. So far I have 4 projects all due next week and they are all very time consuming,, ugghh. Please pray for me you guys. Anyway to the interesting stuff: well, although I spend most of my time learning about Designing and Architecture I also always had a love for Photography/Modeling. Ever since I came back to L.A. I realize their were soo many opportunities to fullfill my lifelong dream as a Model. Since I am not tall enough (at least not for runway) to be a great candidate for the title, according to the society today, and since I am more focused on school, Im not really looking at it as a career. I always loved photography and the beauty it creates through humans and nature. Therefore I want to be a part of that in any way possible. All this week I have been researching great Photographers who will possibly assist me in this creative journey. While looking through many talented Photographers on, and other websites, I found many inspirations through the beautiful photos that I came upon:

These are now a part of my favorite photos! They are so amazing: from the lighting all the way to the fashion. I just love it:). I hope you become inspired (more to come).

p.s. Always feel free in your own skin.:)

Wrinkles...Thanks Dad

Uggggggghhhhhhhhhh.....that was me It has been a pretty long first week of school. I have over 40 homework assignments due within the next few weeks and a project. Overall, I am glad to be back in the swing of things and I feel more motivated than ever. Anyway, I am at the nail shop getting my nails and toes painted for the "Shindigg" tonight. I'm excited to get out and have the opportunity to meet ppl.

P.S. my lower eyelid has been twiching for over a week...its so annoying.

More like Queen of the Yard!!

Last night, I had so much fun. The back to school party was amazing. The whole team was there basically and I did not want the night to end. By the end of the night, my feet were killing me and I was sure that when I took my shoes off that my toes would be bleeding. I bought my dress from Forever21 and I finally got my Jessica Simpson Shoes. They looked great with the teal single shoulder dress. Sorry about the pic camera so stuck taking phone pics. This whole week, I was running back and forth to the mall. I had to help style my teammates for the party. I realized that I love Styling. Anyway, I flat ironed my hair for the party and by the end of the night it was puffy. UGH! I tried not to sweat but it was kinda hot and we were all dancing. What a fun week but its all about to end because school it starting tomorrow. UGH! -SnooSnoo

6 inch Snake!!!

I found these Steve Madden "TURNKEY" wedges. They were originally priced at 69.99 and I got them for 23.00. Talk about sale. I went into Dillards to get my Jessica Simpson Leopard Pumps and walked out with two pair of shoes. I went to the First Colony Mall in Houston and I was surprised at the variety in that mall. I went to Forever21 and bought a few pieces of jewerly for my collection. I have to get a grip and slow down with all the shopping. Once school starts Monday, I won't have time to shop. Thank God. -SnooSnoo

Well my hair is still all natural with about a few inches of permed hair tagged on the ends. I have cut it some but im just letting it run it course and contiue to grow. A lot of people have been trying to convince me to do "NO HEAT." Meaning no blow drying and no flat ironing....ughhh...I Dont Think So! I have no tamed my hair yet or figured out how to tame it. I decided to post an updated you all and post a few pictures of my progress. I believe that it is truely annoying when ppl talk about hair confirmation but don't show you wahts it's really like. they only post beautiful model-esk pics with their hair flat ironed and laid down. I want to keep it real with the people and show what really happens. That way if you decide to go natural you will have a heads up on what your getting yourself into.

This is when I had the Nairobi Conditioner in:

Then I rinsed the Conditioner out:

Then I blow dried it (I have some hair sewn in the back for my back to school look. It is 14 inches long and I love the texture. You will be able to see it in some of the pics because I had to seperate my hair in order to ensure it was completely dry.):

My hair does look a lot shorter than normal because most of my hair is sewn into the tracks. The only places that my hair is out is on the sides. So thats the front, back, left, and right edges.

Here you can see the track where the hair is sewn in.

Then I flat-ironed it:

aww its so beautiful... It becomes so light and fluffy. So TAMED.....until it meets WATER!..then its back to the drawing board! -SnooSnoo

Lulu, I Think I Love You

Im sitting at home "borrowing" someones internet connection. I have been without internet for almost a week and I miss it dearly. I def. missed updating the blog. I can do it from my phone but it only lets me upload one pic and it wont let me change the title of the post! ugh! So I refrain from using blogger on my phone.

Anyway, I went Lulu's and feel in love with the Style Brigade outfits they came up with. I am in heaven. It is so military yet feminine. It is def. my style. Here is a little sample (for more pics and shopping see the site):

This one is the is LA LA ATTENTION. I am so in love with the belts and the dress. I think they are a gorgeous combination. Im sure in this outfit, whomever will get plenty of attention because it is a fashion statement.

This look is called ROXY THE RENEGADE. I am still in love with the style of that show. I posted a blog about a month about the buckle-up black leather wedges she is wearing. I didn't buy them because I was afraid the quality might not be up to par. All in all, she looks great in them. Also her pants are similar to my lastest obsession. I love the color and I love cargo skinny jeans. This outfit gets a A+

This masterpiece is ROYAL REGULATOR. When Handcock sees these pants she is going to die. I am drooling over them as well. They are priced at $41.00 but they are def. worth it. That is coming from someone who doesn't believe in spending over $30 on jeans. You have to the craftmanship into account when thinking about price. They are a definite must have and the whole outfit is a definite success.

What Happens in the Dark, Eventually Comes to the Light...

My close friend and I were invited to a listening party for this upcoming band, who my friend had already known. This event was taken place about a week ago and I had forgotten to take some photos of the outift (that I thought was well worth posting about) I wore that day. However, the event was fun even though we arrived a few hours late lol. It was more of a "kick-back" with close friends of the group. Here is the outfit I wore that night (click on the photo for a closer view):

Confessions of an Unexperienced Wedge Shopper

Omg! I finally bought some! After all this time I have been talking about I needed to get my first pair: Wedges! Well, it all started when I did not have no interest in wedge heels what so ever. Snoo-Snoo was the wedge lover, while all I adored was a high stiletto or pump. I was half way out the box, missing all the great experiences of incorporating wedge heels in an outfit. However, since my style and taste varies from time to time I actually began to like wedge heels, but without the cork detail, which is funny since the wedges I just purchased (and my first ones ever) are cork. So thats why I say my style varies... and after all, these things are bad! Haha, It was love at first sight. They kind of remind me of a tribal design of some sort:

New Engine

Hello, lovely followers! I have been away for a minute, now im back with the jumpoff! Haha. Anyway, I finally went shopping after a long while. I conquered two malls today: the new and improved Santa Monica Mall in California (very nice) and the also refreshed Fox Hills Mall in Culver City, CA. Well, I didnt really do too much shopping today, actually not enough shopping at all lol but I will soon be able to. I bought a few makeup products from Sephora in Fox Hills, and a pair of wedge heels from this new store at the Santa Monica Mall, called Love Culture. It is Amazing! I fell completely in love with that store once I first arrived. As a result, I had a nice time today cruising through many fashions while enjoying the beautiful weather. Here are a few pictures of the outfit I wore today:

Top: Forever21
Rugged Shorts: DIY
Boots: Wave (random boutique in TX)
Jewelry: Forever21

Always Strapped

I was browsing at Ross, which by the way is one of my favorite discount stores, with my teammates for new home decorations. I stumbled open these neutral strapped high heels. They are gorgeous. They are by Carlos and they only cost $20. They were def. a must have because I bought a few rompers and I didn't really have any shoes to go with them. Well now that is solved.

I def.was not supposed to be shopping for shoes but hey..why pass up a good sale?? If you have any ideas or Polyvores on how to wear these shoes please let me know. Thanks
