Friday Diary (A little late)

So, sorry for posting this late but I've been SOOO busy this week. I had a test on Friday and spent the entire week studying for that, in painfully ugly outfits mind you.
Diary Entry:
  • So, I got a 100% on the general knowledge test I had to take for a job I applied for--FINGERS CROSSED!
  • I don't know what I got on my AutoCAD test yet, but hopefully I did well
  • Discovered a poet/scholar/thinker that I'm very interested in/ impressed by, Rumi
That's pretty much it. I will be getting my hair trimmed this week so look out for that post.

BARGAINS + NEONS = A GREAT DAY!

So, today I discovered that I LOVE the way bright pink lipstick looks on me! Its extremely flattering and that is surprising, considering I can't pull of red lips to save my life!


Headband: ROSS, Sweater: SAM'S CLUB $4.99, Shirt: Express 2 yrs old Jeans: Express $89.99, Nails: Ulta Peach Parfait


I got these jeans a good month ago and they fit like a dream but, per usual, they are too long :( Generally, my mom promises to hem them and then keeps them for a month or so until I find them and start wearing the pants anyways...gotta keep the tradition alive, right? So I wore these today with the highest pair of wedges I own and it didn't look awful!

Friday Dairy

So, I've decided I'm going to do a diary entry on Fridays. Mainly, because there are lots of things that happen throughout the week that I want to blog about but they don't really mesh well with the OFOTD posts.

This Week
Positives:
  • Applied to a few different positions, noticed there are more jobs available (YAY!)
  • Started using my journal for 'ToDo Lists'
  • Devised a good technique for mapping out my calendar (w/ deadlines & due dates)
Negatives:
  • Not enough sleep (go to bed at 1-2am, wake up at 6-7 am)
  • Driving to school is getting old
  • Have continued putting on weight
  • Too much homework, not enough motivation
Well, my sister had a Spanish Honor Society induction last night, and we got home pretty late, so I was up late doing homework. Blah! :( I'm too excited for her to be negative, though!



I haven't really decided how I'm going to format these posts, so forgive for me until I do. I hope this was enjoyable for some of you because I'm excited to do more!

A tiger doesn't change its STRIPES!





I had to make -up today for my laziness yesterday. I had a test, so I wore a T-shirt, sweatshirt & track pants to school (HOTT!) This is one of my favorite outfits to wear. When in doubt, pair a tube-top w/ a SUPER COMFY, SOFT & JUST GENERALLY AMAZING cardigan from Express!



You'll notice I absolutely ADORE these cardigans. I have at least 7 and they are well worth the money! They literally last a lifetime (the first one I bought is now 3 years old and in MINT condition) and they feel like nothing else. I swear those rabbit's foot key chains are rough compared to these babies! GET ONE, GET IT NOW!!!!!



I got this ring from Charlotte Russe in JAX, FL and I thought it was so unique I fell in love! I've never seen anything similar to it in Texas, sorry guys! :(




Necklace: F21 Sweater: Express (sale, $29.50) Tube-top: Express (sale bin, $5) Trousers: NY&Company (BOGO 1/2, $29.99) Rings: Charlotte Russe (JAX,FL $4 each)
