cheap thrill of the WeEk!


I was wandering aimlessly through the mall, weaving in and out of the shopping stands in the middle (you know, the stands you think are a pretty damn useless waste of space, trying to sell you useless crap... like the body jewelry stand, the fake pony tail stand, the creepy persian guy hassling you to buy special hand lotion stand, the fake cigarette stand, etc. etc. ) Lo and behold, an eyebrow threading stand!!! There was a creepy guy trying to hustle customers for the eyebrow threading stand, but when I saw the "ONLY 9.95!" sign, the creepiness got a little less creepy and I was sold.

For those of you who don't know what threading is, its a great alternative to waxing and plucking your eyebrows! Using thread! The method originating in India, it perfects your brows like no other. No worry of allergic reaction to wax, less painful than plucking, and it lasts for about a month! It's a cleaner line, more precise, pulls hair from the root, and generally awesome.

I did this once at an uppity salon in Ballard. I paid 45 bucks for it. It's a ridiculous price, I know, but my brows were once quite unruly and no matter what I did, they just never looked right. I would do whatever and pay whatever to get them to be "normal".

Point being, I just HAD to do it today! In spite of my efforts to save money by giving up little luxuries like eyebrow and upper lip waxings, hair trims, and mani/pedis (which has been going well with the exception of today). I thought this was a reasonable time and way to reward myself. Which I did. and I'm so happy with it!

Anyways, for you people in the seattle area, go to South Center Mall. The little stand is located in front of forever21 and abercrombie. or hollister I can't remember which one. But its there! Try it for 10 bucks! The woman knows what she's doing :)

self restraint

I had another day off today. It was most unproductive. I did take a stroll through the mall though because it is my favorite pass time. I don't know why because I always end up really depressed and too aware of how poor I am.

Which is why I usually stick to forever 21. But even today, forever 21 was too much. But I didn't hesitate to grab things and try them on and take pictures of my vain self... I mean, what else is there to do when you're poor?

Rompin' good time.

Could be really cute if it was just a size smaller...

The cardi I wanted the most out of everything in the store..

It's nothing incredibly special or out of the ordinary, but I know I would probably wear this all the time. To work, to play, to everything. Well worth 22 dollars for millions times of wear.

But alas, I just put it on hold and walked away.

I didn't go back. :(

feels like forever

the weather could not be more perfect for my day off! week days off are great because i can shop sans large crowds and all the hustle and bustle.

i got some birthday money and went on a forever21 rampage. i spent about 3 hours there. but only because i spent a lot of time in the dressing room taking pictures. haha

i thought i would give you guys a look at the dupe jumpsuit and share some fun finds...
and i apologize for the quality of the pictures again. this is my camera phone so bare with meeeeeeeeeeee.

sthese shoes are soooo awesome. only 20 dollars!
sadly, i did not buy :(

i found some boyfriend jeans.
i am such a trend whore.

they make me look super stumpy tho :/
i look about 3 inches shorter

decided to try some super light wash skinnies (14dollars)
still make me look short.

ok thats it for now, gunna go enjoy the sun some more~

is it summer yetttttttttttttttttttt


manly in the face??
Black Halo Strapless Jumpsuit
Goes for Three Hundred and 90 BiG oNeS!~ at
However, you can purchase the SAME exact jumpsuit at Forever21 for a mere 22 dollars. and it even comes with a belt for cinching... Which this outfit TOTALLY needs (and some bangles and some big big earrings)
Unfortunately, I can't find the dupe at forever21's website. It's at the store though and I can't decide if i really want to purchase this.

I've been feeling a little risky lately by wanting to jump on the romper/jumpsuit bandwagon. This outfit totally appeals to me and I think I love it.

and yes I know that Carrie Bradshaw wore an outfit similar to this at her dinner rehearsal and it makes me want this even more.

(you can't see it, but this was the best i could do..)

(because if Carrie Bradshaw wore it, then it must be fabulous right?)

more shopbopping~

Elizabeth and James Kingston Trousers
i bought pants similar to this in gray at H&M for 15 dollars. -__-

who pays high end designer prices these days anyway? you're stupid
you can find the same damn thing at forever21/target GUARANTEED

Falke Monroe Stay Up Tight

I've been thinking about getting black opaque thigh highs. But I think I must have these instead.
edit- i bought some at target for five dollars.

victorias secret
ive been tanning during my lunches.

Welllp, thats it.

and I guess its my birthday....

...because I got a beautiful new laptop from my beautiful old boyfriend!!!!
