lets get naked

Okay, so one word for this palette-INCREDIBLE! I'm in love with how easy this palette is. I'm a total neutral girl so every color I could possibly need is right here. I only have two Urban Decay single pot shadows, one is pink and the other is purple, so basically they haven't gotten used since sophomore year of high school. Because those shadows never see the light of day anymore I totally forgot how incredibly rich, pigmented, and easy to blend Urban Decay's shadows are. I would recommend this palette to my mother, sister-in-law, best girlfriends, so needless to say I would totally recommend it to you guys too!

All and all it was a good day (with a lot of walking!). The LIM info session was at 10am, we just made it! I actually really like the school, now to apply and work out the rest of the details. After that we made a quick stop at H&M, I didn't get anything because we were running late for a lunch date we made with my Dad. We had a lovely little lunch at a restaurant at the end of Bryant Park. I got a ham and provolone with pineapple sandwich, it was amazing, still thinking about it! Anyway, Happy Sunday to all, hope you're all kickin it fresh and relaxing!

lost at sea

On a perfectly overcast day my best friend, lindsey, and I grabbed coffee and took a walk on the sea wall. We chatted and caught up on everything that had happened since the night before because we see each other everyday. It was relaxing and nice for it to be just the girls (our other best friends are 3 boys and we spend a lot of time with them). So about the dress, I love it! It's been my favorite dress since I bought it in spring 2010 and I never got a chance to wear it. On this particular morning I saw it hanging in the closet and I just couldn't wait any longer! Had I been going out to dinner or had actual plans I would have worn a white strapy corked heel wedge that I got last spring as well, but I opted for an ultra casual flip flop to dress down the outfit.

breaking out

Today's post is brought to you from my local starbucks! As I'm typing, I'm also sipping a venti iced skinny vanilla latte (just in case you were wondering what my signature drink was!). This post is appropriately titled breaking out because I created an escape plan to get out of my house without the warden (Brody) noticing. It was a fail, he sees all, but I did manage to escape. Starbucks is where I like to come when I need to get stuff done (and when i want to look at the cutiepie that works here!). At home I can't focus because Brody jumps all over the laptop, I think he's jealous of the attention it receives.
Today's outfit is super simple and laid back. Just an oatmeal colored off the shoulder top that i have belted with a chocolate skinny brown belt. A pair of medium was straight leg jeans, brown loafers, and to add some color a royal blue scarf (pictured above!). Oh Oh and these awesome like Aztec inspired earrings (they're huge and fabulous!).
I've been doing a lot of thinking and analyzing lately. And the conclusion that I've come to is that I need a major life change! Seriously, I've spent so much time wasting my energy dating all the wrong people and trying to make things that will NEVER work out work and I'm exhausted. It's time that I focus on something that's more substantial...myself! So my life makeover includes my personal style, attitude, and habits. I need to get myself motivated and stoked on school if I'm going to transfer out by the spring. And if I'm going to be city living I need to reinvent! And in order to do both those things I need to I need to change a lot of bad habits that I've acquired over the years such as my laziness. The look part is easy, I live for that kind of thing. The attitude and habits, not so much, but it's definitely a necessary change. I encourage everyone who isn't happy with their life to do a life makeover because're the only one who can control your happiness!
