Hello friends! Long time no see, eh? Sorry for my hiatus, been very, very busy as of late. Particularly with my little Youtube experiment. I've turned to vlogging! Yes, video blogging. It's really fun! Interesting and new. I've always been pretty self-conscious with my looks, my hair, even my skin, and putting myself out there for people to poke at is a big step! We all have to take risks though, right? Well, a few weeks after my initial youtube escapade, I saw an ad for a contest. The Kia Soul "Who's Next?" Competition. I was curious. So, I looked into it. I was overtaken by an extreme excitement! Kia along with Youtube's biggest stars, Smosh, LisaNova and ShayCarl, are hosting a fabulous contest to crown one lucky winner Youtube's next big star! I had to enter. Even if my chances were zero to one. So, I have, and I am trying to get the word out about my entry. I want to win this more than I've ever wanted anything ladies! It would make my little heart burst if I were to achieve this amazing goal in my life. SO! If you would be a complete dear, and visit the link I provide, watch the video like/favorite/comment/share or subscribe (or all of them, that would be amazing!) I will love you forever. This means a lot to me, and I've worked so hard on this video. Please, please help me out! <3>
What else is new? Well, I've been considering getting a little nostril piercing. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not a big fan of piercings in obvious, obnoxious places, but, some little studs on the curve of your nose are oh-so-attractive. They seem mysterious, alluring, feminine in quality. I don't know. I've gotten the okay from the mother and the boyfriend, so it's all up to me. I'm tossing it up in the air. A part of me is terrified of the pain, and another is terrified of the change, but I don't know, let me know what you think! Have you had a piercing? Would you like one? How much pain should I expect? Is it worth it?
I'm also reading the new Stephenie Meyer book just out of curiosity. The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner. I'll let you all know how I like it. So expect a review of sorts! Thanks soooo much for reading, have a wonderful week!

Having a good weekend? I know I am! It's nice to just relax in this nice weather as of late. It's so sunny and warm out lately, I pray it stays this way. Well, as promised, today I'm going to show you all some of the vintage things I got from the thrift store last week. Three outfits this time! Hurray! Haha, well, to start off, I really want to share this one with you. It was that little polka-dotted twp- piece I was telling you all about. It's just too darn adorable. Well, I don't really know what to call it, you know? It could be called a jumper, maybe. At first, like I said, I thought it was a dress, but it's got legs, actually. And it is way too many sizes big for me, yet fits perfectly! Hmmm, as mysterious as this one is, I absolutely love it! In this picture I'm wearing my blue jumper, with a pair of tights, an old blue button-up and my handy-dandy white vest. Of course, complete with cute heels. Hehe, and in the third picture from the left, I'm chewing on one of my daddy's pipes. Yes, he smokes a pipe like an old Seaman. I always loved the smell of his pipe, especially when he smokes the apple scented good stuff. Anyway, I just love this outfit. Total cost? About fifteen bucks, shoes not included. Thrift stores have amazing prices.

Hurray for the weekend! Hope you're all enjoying it, as usual. Hope you found that perfect pair of shoes, or maybe that cute little dress you've been looking for. I know we've all had those moments. It's like love at first sight! You see it sitting there on the rack, and you approach it excitedly, making sure no one else is eying it. Upon reaching it, you inspect the price, and it's perfect! And miraculously, it's your exact size! You and that item were meant to be. I had that experience today, while at the thrift store. I was slinking along the racks, waiting for that perfect shirt to jump out at me. I was looking for something vintage, something that just screamed "Look at me!" and there it was. A white polka-dotted nave blue skirt. I was upon it in seconds. To my surprise, it wasn't a skirt at all! It was half a piece to a two-piece set. The half I got was actually shorts, that had straps that went over the shoulders and rests on your abdomen. There are four little gold buttons up the center that just pull the piece together. It is adorable. I will have pictures up soon, in my next possibly. I got a few other items as well, including a vest, two vintage fitted blazers, and skirt! It was a wonderful day for finding vintage items! With my mother's help I was excitedly running to the register with an armful! Well, my weekend has been stupendous. I hope yours has as well.

Happy Late Valentine's Day everyone! I meant to post sooner, but I was waiting on the new camera I'll be using! It's much better than the old one. Anyway, today I'm doing two outfits instead of one, just because I couldn't make up my mind on which one I liked. I'm terrible. I really wanted to show you all my new coat I bought. It is just perfect, and probably my favorite item of clothing to date! It's white, with a gorgeous black floral pattern (and it's soft inside!) It is perfect for wearing skirts or dresses (solid colored ones of course) and every time I look at it I just can't help but want to throw some red in with it. I am a sucker for some nice red contrast. One thing you'll notice is I rarely wear patterns. I'm a solid color kind of girl, and mostly neutral, but I'm working on that, heh. Anyway, this coat happens to have a pattern, and I freaking love it! I bought it for a very reasonable twenty-five dollars (originally forty) and I just can't stop wearing it-- truth be told it's a spring/fall coat, but I'm too impatient, as you can clearly see! We've been getting so much snow here lately, so I don't think spring is coming any time soon. Anyway, the first outfit, with the cute little red umbrella was a modest forty dollars, which I got free due to my mother giving me her forty-dollar Kohls cash! Not too bad, yeah? The dress is from the Candie line, and to be honest, I wasn't very impressed with the other clothes, but this one was neatly displayed on the mannequin with cute little black heels. I had to have it. This dress and I were truly meant to be. The heels are are a flared oxford set I bought a few years ago and I still love. And then the light coat.
