Updates, Christmas, Gets~

So of course it's been absolutely forever since I've updated.  I can't believe a whole month has actually gone by!

Not all of this is from Christmas, but things that I've bought over time.

My sister bought me more Marc Jacob's Daisy for Christmas and my step mother got me Spin, which is a cheaper alternative to Kate Spade's Twirl (smells like grapefruit!).  I bought this cute beret at H&M when I was picking up some Christmas presents my mum asked me to pick up. (They were for me! A tote and a pair of boots.  Maybe I'll put those in the next post.  Super cute~)

 I bought this ring at H&M to accessorize a LBD I was wearing to waitress a party.  I needed more accessories because unfortunately I didn't have a silver detailed belt to wear with the dress!  I picked up these three nail polishes at Target~ They're so nice.
Left to Right: Make U Smile, Love Your Life (Heart glitter!), Snow-man of My Dreams

E.L.F mascaras that were in my stocking!  I've never used E.L.F before, but I love love love it so much!  It's currently the best mascara I've ever used!

Also got this Union Jack iPhone case, as well as an England and Wales guidebook.  Which will be super useful when I achieve one of my resolutions! (Which will be in a later post!)  I mostly got money for Christmas, to put into my savings for my future adventures in the UK.

Christmas Eve was the best.  There was a lot of food and fun and people!  We had almost as many desserts as food, and we were baking and cooking all day.  It was so nice.  Unfortunately I didn't take many pictures (none at all really!) during the night.

How was your christmas, or if you don't celebrate Christmas, did you enjoy your holidays?  Did you enjoy time with your family?  Did you get what you were hoping for?

[REVIEW] spikes and studs!

(banner not mine!)

So there's this amazing website called Studs and Spikes.  They have just about everything it seems!  A bunch of different styles of spikes and studs, as well as patches, badges, belts, wristbands and even kits to get you started!  Ohhhh, I love it so much.  I'm so in love, I've already ordered twice! 

So first, the shop. Studs and Spikes.  It's so well organized, and they have options for buying in bulk, as well as buying in smaller sizes.  There's a huge wealth of information, and they really know about their product.  I was super confident buying from them.  Their products have so many good reviews on both quality and shipping.  I couldn't be happier. They also accept paypal!  Made it all so much easier to buy.  I've recommended them to my friends, and I will keep buying from them.

Onto the product:

Here I have the:
Size 13 Silver Cone Spike
1" Silver Cone Spike
1" Thin Tree Spike
and the Standard English77 Silver Studs

I've been using the tree spikes to stud a phone case for my friend for Christmas (even though it's passed Christmas!).

It's coming along! Slowly but surely~  I just bought more spikes because I ran out!

I'm especially excited about the English77 studs.  They're to give a punk look circa '77.  Oh man, it's going to be great.  I found a Betsey Johnson denim jacket at a thrift store, and I want to pull off the sleeves to make it a vest and stud and spike and patch it!  I plan to do the same to another jacket for the same friend I'm doing the case for for her birthday!  We both have similar tastes, so I'm sure she'll love it.  I love girly looks, but I do love punk rock at the same time!

This little cutie is a Fwamuu! It's a なでなで (petting) app for iPhone, and I love it so much.

It's my new favorite app, it's something that's super easy and not too involved, and it's kind of calming!  Really all you do is pet it!  You get points for however long you pet it, and you can use your points to buy cute little accessories (see the little brown bow!) and different backgrounds.  You can go to other people's houses and pet their pets and give them little treats.

I've named mine Bach, which is Welsh for "small".  My favorite app, and it's free.

They learn tricks, too! Cute little things.  One of them is "Banzai" and he raises his arms and goes WHEEEEE.  Though he doesn't actually say whee.

Those of you who celebrate, Happy Thanksgiving!  Enjoy your families and good food, I know I will!

I've been all about my leather jacket lately.  Or I was when it was cool enough last week!  It's recently shot right back up into the 80s, forcing me to put my jacket back into the closet.  I'm waiting for it to get nice and cool again so I can wear it.

I like to pair it with my bow flats, or if I'm feeling a bit edgy, with a pair of my combat boots.  I feel so confident when I wear it.  Even though it gets cool, it's still hot in the sun, so I like to push the arms to the crook of my elbow.

The lining is so soft, the leather is like butter, and I love the smell of leather especially.

Ah, I've been posting so much.  Three days consecutively? Unheard of! Probably because I want to avoid writing this paper! I'm working on drafting posts, so I can post a little more regularly.  Need something to take my mind off of approaching exams!  Is the semester over yet? ㅠ.ㅠ

Please please please bring me cool weather!  I want to pull out my wool coat as well!

Yep. Shopping Problem.

My flat mate and I are horrible.  We get bored, instead of school work, we go shopping!

To The Races!

I went home this weekend.  Such a great break from preparing for exams and writing papers. The semester is almost over, I can't wait!  Anyway, when I went home, I splurged and bought the new 4S.  I love it so much. :3  Have yet to get a case for it, couldn't find one I liked in store, so I ordered a couple online.  Hopefully they come in the next couple of days.  I'm so paranoid about my phone.  Definitely don't have the money to fix it if it breaks!

My grandfather was in town, and as it always is when he's in town, we go eat somewhere posh.  We went to the kennel club to go bet on the dogs, and had lunch at the restaurant while we were there.  It was nice.  The tables were set with proper settings, and one wall was just windows so you could see the track. 

My mum and i pooled what cash we had on us ($11) and placed bets throughout lunch.

Those are our losing tickets! Boo!  We bet on seven races and we had a losing streak of four.  BUT we won our last three races.  It was fun.

Lunch was so good, too.  My mum ordered a lobster salad wrap, but I got a grilled grouper sandwich with fresh fruit on the side.

Lunch was so good.  I want to go there again!

My Brother's 21st! + Giveaway

Really just a pic post.  My brother was so unfun.  We went to eat at the ale house, he nursed a beer over three hours.  We went to the pool hall and stayed there for hours while he nurses a long island iced tea.  BORING.

My sister, her friend, and I had an amazing time. I was sober.

 There were a ton of other pictures, but I like these the best!  I especially love that silly face!

Also~  Check out Noxin's giveaway!  She's giving away 2 pairs of Geo circle lenses, a lens case for each pair, a super cute penguin traveling case and super super cute hk false nails, all from Shoppingholics (who is seriously my favorite online shop!)  So go check it out!

Another Shopping Haul!

Ok, I shop way way too much.  It's ok though.  The Bendels that's opening is still hiring for associates and a key holder, so I'm going to submit my resume on Monday, and hopefully I'll get an interview!  It'll make up for it.

Anyway, I can't help it!  I just get so bored.  It's mostly because I was out and about today as well, had to return some things to Ikea so when I drove by the mall I had to stop!  i went looking for a specific style of tank top (unfortunately never found) and ended up stumbling onto some ridiculous sales.  All the sale merchandise was an extra half off!

So~  Went to F21 (the only place I didn't shop the sale racks) picked up some basics, nail polish and face masks

Gray                                                   "Avocado"

Raspberry Mask, Tomato and Grape Yogurt! and basic tanks

Every where else I went I went straight to the sales.

Went to Hollister (cute worker who was super cute was teasing me about my amount of bags.  Such a nice smile he had :3)

American Eagle:
This skirt was $10 and the tank was $5.  Seriously, how much better can that get?

AND last but not least, Urban Outfitters.

I also bought my roomie a gift, but I don't want her to see it, so I won't upload it or talk about it! 

Best part is, everything was so only sale it was all around $150!  So lucky~  Especially because these Urban dresses are like $60 each.  I saved at least $90 at Urban alone.
