ModCloth Admiration

I've been secretly stalking ModCloth for a little while on the web, waiting for a big sale. Right now they're having 70%! That's not just your typical up to 70% type of sale, almost all their Cabin Fever sale is 70%!

Here are a few of my favorite picks!

Out of the Bloom Skirt
Haute Hostess Dress
This dress reminded me of Jeannie from I Dream of Jeannie would wear. I love that show!

Do you have any goodies of your own that you have your eyes on?

Bunnys & Winner


I couldn't resist after I saw the bunny necklace on Kimmie. I had to get my own. I mean after all, I do call my boyfriend Bunny, for reasons you don't know why. 

This is me trying to be cool and get a close up shot of the necklace. It didn't work out as I hoped. And Bunny didn't want to help me because he was studying. My arm got tired so I had to use the pictures I failed at taking.

Rain-Rain

It's not raining. At least not anymore. I don't want it to rain. Rain puts such a damper on the day, especially when I have school. I don't mind the rain as much on the weekends because that just gives me an excuse to stay in doors and cuddle with he boyfriend.

Say hello to my new and only "fun" print top. They're little umbrellas with polka dots! Aren't they the cutest thing, ever?!

I belted my top because it was a little big on me even though it is a size small. The trend for oversized tank-tops, they really do mean oversized. It dips a little too low for my liking in the front. But there's nothing a belt can't fix these days.

I swear, this was not meant to be a boob shot. I wanted to show you the little details of the polka dotted umbrellas. They're so cute! And yes, there is a little zipper on the left side. The pocket is a real pocket. Cool huh? Hurry and get yourself one from GoJane before they run out with a 40% off coupon TOPS40R (exp: 02/24/11)

Nothing

I just don't have anything to say today. My brain is like dead, not literally, but figuratively speaking of course. TGIF.

Rubbing

It's not what you think. Let me explain.
(Don't mind my hair. Bad hair day + wind + a pimple)

Bulova watch Tiffany & Co. necklace 

The other night, I was rubbing a small stain off my tank top with some Bath & Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom soap (because I was lazy to get some real soap without the anti-bacterial beads, which by the way are not good for us). Little did I know, because I put the stain on top my left pointing finger and I rubbed the material together, I would end up with a clean stainless tank top at the cost of an ugly blister on my pointing finger.

There you have it people, the band-aid is hiding a blister.
Note to self, next time I am going to use Bunz tooth brush.
I kid you not.

Things We Waste Money On

The other day I came across this article "10 Things You Waste Money On Every Day" and then a few hours later this article "6 Little Things That Costs a Lot."  As curious as I am, I clicked it. The title made was interesting to not click. After reading skimming through the two articles I started thinking about all the stuff that Bunz and I waste my money on.
 

Here is a list of stuff off the top of my head:
  • Coffee (I don't drink coffee, but Bunz has bags of coffee at home and still buys by the cup. But I have to give him credit for cutting back and only spending the money in this "change" jars.)
  • Parking Meters ($2/hr!!!)
  • unnecessary food (ie mall food, yummy looking snacks at Trader Joes, demo food from Trader Joes/Costco)
  • Target $1 section
  • "required" textbooks that I never open, but feel guilty for not buying
  • stuff that's on "sale" and too good of a deal to pass up
What is something you think you waste your money on? Please share.  Make me feel better!


Remember to enter my giveaway for a cowl scarf! It's cold outside. Don't say I didn't warn you.

      The skies are clear and the sun is out..sounds like a beautiful day. But as soon as you step out the house with a pair of flats, you'll turn back in to slip on a pair of socks and booties. I wish I did that because I didn't. BIG mistake. My little piggies were freezing! And looking at them now, I still didn't learn my lesson. See my pink toe-ies?

      Remember to enter my giveaway if you haven't already. It's ending tomorrow!

      Weekend Adventure


      Walmart scarf Forever 21 red braided belt  Forever 21 jeans  Nicole boots Bulova watch

      Yesterday, Buns and I woke up at 7:30am to attend a 8:30am CPR class. We didn't get there until almost 9am because his iPhone directed us to the WRONG place. It brought us into a gated neighborhood. It was just so weird. I whipped out my cell phone and guided  us to the right way. We got to class and took our seats. Good thing we didn't miss anything. The class lasted until 5:30pm. It was such a long, long, long day. Call us me insane! Why did we take the class? One day out the blue, I decided I wanted to get certified and thankfully Buns agreed to go with me. We are officially certified for CPR! I hope we don't need to put my new skills to use.

      Happy Sunday!
      Since you're here, check out my new giveaway.

      eShakti GIVEAWAY & Review (CLOSED)

      We all know that shopping for clothing comes with their own frustrations. But fear no more! Not because I fear no more. You see, I think I have abnormally long arms. Sleeve usually do not fit my arm length. If I go up a size to get a longer sleeve, the body of the coat would be too wide. But eShakti sent me this wool peacoat, and it was nearly perfect! I would just add a small change in it - a button so the left flap would not side down throughout the day. But that can be easily fixed...what I am saying is that the sleeves and even the length of the coat was perfect. (I'm not that tall, 5'2") 


      eShakti is a unique women's apparel store online that allows custom changes in the style - sleeve, neckline, length can all be changed by your preference. They offer sizes from 0-26W, custom, 3X-6X to be sure they fit every woman out there. And custom orders will be shipped out in THREE days! Today, you can recieve:

      1. Free shipping on all orders over $100
      2. Register with eShakti and get a $20 gift certificate that can be used in your first order
      3. Buy Gift cards at 20% off
      4. Overstock selections at 35% off
      5. Customization at $7.50 - FREE the first time you customize
      6. 20% off with the code: JUSTBETTER2011
      OR 

      7. WIN a $30 gift certificate for anything your heart desires!!! 
      (And for those who are doing the Kendi 30 for 30 challenge, I wouldn't consider this shopping since you can win...)

      Rushed

      I woke up late so I copied an outfit that I wore previously. It didn't require too much thinking until I couldn't find the purple t-shirt so I wore a magenta top instead. I think it worked out fine.

      Payless flats Vintage Butterfly elastic belt Tiffany & Co. necklace

      Rushed post with three pictures -what?

      Yeah, I don't make any sense.
      I also like skirts with pockets.
