2.) old photos! i can't stop looking at this old photo of my grandparents with my dad and all (most) of his brothers and sisters (my aunts and uncles)!

3.) growing up... the past few weeks i've had to weigh this really heavy decision... and it was just so hard and so scary... but because i've grown into (what i think lolz) is a mature and well rounded adult, i was able to face my fears and just do what was important... and not just what was easiest... its nice to know sometimes that growing up isn't as crappy as they made it out to be when u were younger lolz :P

4.) Bertollin instant dinners... mmm if u haven't tried one... then u need to get on it! this one is my faaave!

irrational fear... i has one.

okay so since i'm diabetic i have to go in and get bloodwork done periodically to make sure that i'm controlling it well and yadda yadda... so every 3-4 months i have to go to my clinic and get blood drawn... ironically enough, i have a crazy intense fear of having needles put in my arm by a person... i've always been scared of needles ever since i was little... but now i'm so scared that the nurse or phlebotomist unknowingly has epilepsy and just conveniently enough will have a seizure right when she's putting the syringe into my arm... totally massacring my arm... i'm serious... i am SPECIFICALLY scared of someone having a seizure when theyre putting the needle into my arm... just thinking about it makes me want to hyperventilate... :(

OMG looking at this guy's post did not help! AAAAAH! ::hyperventilates:: :'(

puttin the BAD in sabado ;)

lolz that title was corny... but i meant "bad" ina good way :) hung out with one of my most favorite (she'll argue THE favorite) people in zee woooorld, my cousin Charmaine who has been currently taken from me because of tax season... in which she becomes a slave to the Man! lolz... so we got a chance to spend some much needed QT yesterday (she's one of the less than a handful of ppl who really GET me, so i've really missed her ::emo time:: lolz)

anywho... we fulfilled our gluttony quota with some awesome-o Thrifty Ice Cream! yes theres no more Thrifty only Rite Aid but their ice cream is still the same awesomeness with a different label ;)

then we chilled for a bit and watched Old Boy... which is an older Korean film (2003, we looove our asian horror/suspense, even tho i'm not sure if this movie falls in either lolz) thats pretty popular with the Cannes and more underground film crowds... we had heard a lot of talk about it before... so finally scoped it out... and it was... ummm... different lolz... i don't know if i've just been unreceptive to films lately (see my opinion on The Crazies) or maybe most of the ones i've watched just haven't been that great lately lolz anywho... there was a twist that i TOOOOOTALLY enjoyed... like almost to the point where it made up for the movie... but then the ending was just a big WOMP WOMP in a really unsettling way, if that makes sense? basically i didn't love it as much as i... thought i would/ wanted to... but for those of you who like watching new movie concepts and/or foreign films u should check it out.

theeen after that we decided to walk off some of the ice cream/shrimp chips at the Cerritos Mall... where i picked these up at Charlotte Russe... i saw the ring and was in love (following in 2BD's footsteps ;) not exactly tho, i wish lolz) and decided to find something else to get the 2 for $8 deal and picked the big statement bangle, its actually much more golden than in photos.

here's my OOTD btw (courtesy of the gigantic Forever 21 store in Cerritos Mall and their mirrors everywhere lolz)
[purple striped Converse dress from Target $15 on sale... LOVE this dress! totally gonna be a summer '10 favorite]
[brown belt- thrifted]
[brown bag- oldie but goodie]
[brown ankle wrap sandals- Easyfit in LB]
[2 finger Love ring- u should already kno by now lolz, i wear it enough]
[in case u guys are wondering... my constant baubles- green Celtic Pride wristband from my BAE and silver hearts and diamonds ring from my momma]

didn't make any purchases at Forever... it was waaay too scattered in there... stuff all over the place! its like a messier version of the Hollywood store.

grabbed dinner and rented a movie after the mall (we're like a couple huh? lolz) rented the 4th Kind with Milla Jovovich... i liked this one much more than Old Boy... it was freaky and apparently contains REAL footage from real alien abduction victims and instances... i don't know about u guys... but i've always been open for ANYTHING existing out there... who knows... we only know about inches of the hundreds of thousands of miles of the universe... so i figure that's enough to at least believe that other worldly life is possible... anyways... i liked it... pretty intense... and creepy... obviously if ur a skeptic u shouldnt bother with this one lolz

we ended our night with interesting/ridiculous/wonderful conversation lolz as usual... i miss you cuzzzzzz... can't wait til tax season ends lolz

androgyny - the new men's trend?

i love me some mickey rourke... even after the intense facial reconstruction... but a sheer v-neck, too low cut jeans, and a toy dog? all he needs is a designer handbag and a crotch shot in the archives and he's pretty much a Hollywood heiress lolz what do you guys have to say about his 'fit?

and while we're at it... males in the skinny jeans? is there an age range for this trend cuz it seems to be perfectly acceptable from the pre-teen, tween, teen crowd... is anyone else just as bothered as me that there are now relationships in which the pants are literally interchangeable?!



now this is the... ::loss of simile skills::...

remind mom to stop buying fruit from nuclear facilities.

for real now... unless i find one the size of my head.

Andre the Giant

of the strawberry world. wowzers.

now to watch my DVR of Project Runway :)
my upper wisdom teeth are trying to make their way into the open air... and they're irritating the crap out of me.

Tasty Textile Thursday

so i thought i'd do a haul of the things i got within the last few days... seeing as how i probably won't get much else... cuz i'm broke now lolz anywho... and also some dress adventures i had today at the mall with my cousin Lanella :) here is all of the fun stuff...

[stocked up on these light, short sleeve, really well fitting button ups from Walmart ($10 each) i'm probably gonna return the middle one, it gives me too much of a teenager vibe i think, right?]

[love love loooove this shirt. it's just a slouchy tee with slit cap sleeves in the most awesome (i like to call it) Mylanta color :) i wore it sort of off the shoulder today since the neckline is pretty wide (Walmart $6) my lightings been super bad on colors lately :( (see purple dresse below) oh yeah when i looked at the tag when i got home i saw that it's actually a "sleep shirt" lolz niiiiceee]

["je t'aime" heart tee (ross $7.99 minus BFF's employee discount ;) yeaaah lolz) my first official "green" tee! that's not why i bought it tho... it is just maaad comfy and to think almost half of it is recycled!... i'm prolly gonna go back and buy the other colors/prints too]

[studded bag (ross $21) i actually was being super bipolar about this bag but my mom was like "i'ma buy you a bag hurry up and pick one" lolz so it was sort of forced... but i actually really like how it looks when its sitting ona surface all slouched up... eh its okay when i carry it around too lolz i guess. i hate shopping wit ma dukes sometimes :|]

[this is my favorite buy in this haul (well maybe a toss up with the shoes lolz) purple striped wrap tie dress (Target $15 on sale) i can't wait to show this to you guys when its on... it has the cutest wrap tie detail at the empire waist... feels almost Grecian but with this light summery fabric EDIT: i last minute added that picture of it from the Target website, sucks that it's not on sale online tho]

[last but not least Puma mens white/navy/green slip on sneakers (Footlocker $19.99 on sale) i kno they're kind of trendy lolz but wutever... they're super comfy and really cool looking! makes me think i should be going to Diddy's parties in the Hamptons or something lolz]

i also tried on a couple of dresses at Forever21 (including my intended birthday dress see here) and had a mini trip to a bridal store (because my cousin is engaged, yaynes!)

here's the birthday dress (perhaps not)... i need a push up bra with this dress lolz and the print didn't really wow me as much as it did online... the cut and fit are nice though... i might go back and buy it just to have

i kept seeing this dress in the online store and i wasn't very fond... i'm thinking now its because her jugs don't look like they have much support... but me being a member of the itty bitty titty committee :P lolz... it fit much nicer... i actually liked this better than the last dress (sorry no pics)... hopefully i'll go back for this one (cousin is a Forever21 employee ;) yeaaaah... again lolz)

nooow last but not least... a halloween themed bridal nightmare (i like the cut though, it's the most suiting for my funky figure lolz)
gotta love the stink face lolz
(i'm thinkin i gotta start takin my pants off when i try dresses on lolz oh lazy poo!)
