Friday Diary #19 Apps, Nails & Braids

First off, I apologize for not posting a Friday Diary last week. Frankly, I wasn't able to post on Friday or the weekend and then it just got away from me.

However, I do have some exciting news to share with you...for once! :-)

I GOT A NAIL RACK!!!! *cheers* I find this very encouraging, because this proves that I have under 100 full size bottles of nail polish! *more shinies*


Secondly, I went to the Renaissance festival last Saturday with a group of friends and I got my hair braided... ahh-mazing!


Last but not least, I have a bit of a tech update. I recently downloaded the following game:


It's called Archery and it really is as simple as the screenshot, and name, imply. The reason I'm sharing is that this game has inspired me to create, and possibly publish, an Android app!!! :-) I'm thinking I would do another series of post as I did for the Java assignments. What are your thoughts? Would you want to see my progress through writing an Android application? 

Do you have any suggestions for what I could do?

Friday Diary 18, ATX

I'm in ATX (Austin, TX fyi) to visit my sister so I don't have much to say this week! I did post another vlog at pkgadgvlogs


I don't want these Friday Diary posts to become a springboard for my YT channel, but this is pretty much all I have to talk about this week... :(

Hope all is well! <3

Monochromatic Florals

I have another outfit post for you, sort of an ode to my old days. :)  Check out my Chictopia post!


I got these leggings a while ago and I really wanted to see how I could wear them. I tried a monochromatic look and let the leggings make the statement they were meant to.


 Leggings: DailyLook, Shirt: Sam's Club (yes, again) Scarf: CATO (gifted) Boots: Stein Mart


I don't know how I like this look. What do you think? Can I pull off printed leggings?

Friday Diary #17 - Mean Muggin'

I just posted a new MOV (move out vlog) to YouTube, check out my mug collection. :)



My progress on project pan(s) thus far:

  • 2/5 perfumes
  • 1/10 makeup products
  • 9/92 days w/o shoes, clothes or accessories
Not bad considering I just started! Some other good news: the Clarisonic Mia does wonders! My face has cleared up in 2 weeks more than it has in 3 months. I attribute that 60% to the Clarisonic and 30% to the Clinque 3-Step line I've been using in conjunction. The other 10% is consistency on my part, i.e. washing my face twice a day, everyday. YAY!!!

Shoe Haul 564577686

Yes, I have another shoe haul for you! Now I feel the need to preface this by saying that I recognize that I have a problem and have since put myself on multiple 'Project Pan' initiatives. Namely, a Project 10 Pan on Makeup. Project 5 Pan on Perfumes, and I've instituted a embargo on all accessory shopping for 3 months!

Fyi: Project Pan is a name for restricting purchase of new goods until a number of products have been used up, or you 'hit pan on them'. Obviously, this is usually done with makeup, hence the references to tin pans.

Never mind that now, onward with the shoes!

Now, I made a rather large order from Shoedazzle (totaling $150) because I've been quite impressed with previous purchases from the site!

 Danger - $39.95
 Jive - No longer available
 Jessica - $39.95
Sophie - $39.95
Now, if you haven't noticed Shoedazzle is a relatively affordable shoe site but they have alot of variety in terms of styles and colors. The variety and 'bang for your buck' of Shoedazzle is what really speaks to me!

On to Shoemint:
So I've had a few credits saved up with Shoemint because  I forgot to skip months. I was very reluctant to try Shoemint again, because I was very disappointed in my first purchase from them. I decided to give the Carol & Kathryn a try because they caught my eye
(and Follow Me on Pinterest) and were on sale.
 Carol - $51.98
Kathryn - $51.98
I have to admit I'm really lovin' both of these! The two negatives for them are:
  • Carol's are made from printed cow hide (real fur)
  • Kathryn's are very low cut which leads to toe cleavage (its too late for me to return them so I'm going to keep them but I hate that bit about them)
What do you think? Crazy? Too many shoes? :)
Leave me a comment with your opinions on this purchase or if you own any of the shoes themselves!

Friday Diary #16 - Validation at Work

The title of this post is a little somber, but I promise not to be too serious in this post! :)

So this Friday I was invited to partake in interviewing new candidates for my company. I have to admit that I was very excited for this opportunity and its quite validating to be on the other side of the fence. I feel like I reached a milestone in my career, where I'm moving into seasoned professional territory! So, I had a great time, I learned alot and am i a very good place at work right now!

I posted another MOV (Move Out Vlog) last night: http://youtu.be/NTVl8zl4cZQ

I have to admit that I have definitely been slacking on uploading these and that is mostly because of this video. I had to do alot of editing and was completely unmotivated to work on it while on vacation so it just got done! Hope you can forgive! *hangs head in shame*

Head on over to my YT channel and check out the latest MOVs & a few hauls I posted!
