I Miss Blogging

It has been almost a Month since my last post!! Since then, I have started a photography class, Homecomming has passed, I have gone on many college visits, got a new phone, auditioned for the Nutcracker and injured my back. So I have hardly had a moment to sit down and think, yet alone type an entry. I am going to set a goal of posting once a week, because I think blogging is pretty therepudic-- and I really need something like that this year. Senior Year is supposed to be "the best year of our life"... not if you're taking 3 college courses likeee AP Bio, Spanish V University, AP English Lit. Well, English I really love. I have already read two fab plays: Death of a Salesman and A Streetcar Named Desire. Spanish is just mucho speaking hehe. And AP Bio...too much to handle. I want to persevere and finish the course in May...but with college Apps due NOVEMBER 1st (AHH!), the workload of the class is killing me. Tuesday (since its a 3 day weekend) is when the next assignments are due: a HUGE lab write up on diffusion and 44 questions + an after school exam on Ecology. "Dear Ecology...I don't like you very much my friend... at all. Kind Regards..."
But I mean hey, only 9 months left...But I'm not counting or anythingg! HA.

It also happens to be fall, my favorite season for warm layers, boots, scarves and flannel!! Great for bonfires and haunted houses!! Can't wait until Halloween...not sure what I will be though. Ideas???

Happy 3 Day Weekend Friends!!

Since I started reading Seventeen Magazine, I always would think, I can't wait until I'm actuallyy 17 and read the mag! So yesterday I went to the newstand and bought the new one (I'm lamee)!
The birthday was awesome and we did alot of shopping including bags, shoes, clothes and IPHONE 4, which I absolutely love! All my relatives gave me cash labeled "gas money"... good thing I'm thinking shopping moneyy!

After a great lunch with the fam, Erin and I went in one shop that is one of my favs in town. Speck. In the small boutique you can find great boots, bags, accessories etc! Here are just a few things that caught my eye! Be sure to check their website:

This week is fullll of back to school shopping and random erend running! I just wanted to share a few of my ideas with ya'll!

Just check the website and I'm sure you'll find some way cool stuffs!

A pencil and cosmetic randomness bag to throw pens and lipglosses in is very much needed to put in whatever bag you carry around to classes. For the past two years I've used the little LeSportsac bags! Vercool patterns this year, and don't forget to check out their special collections like the pleather stuff!

**If you don't already have these items, STOCK UP!!**
1: Birks (Birkenstocks) Gizeh is my fav! I just love how they go with everything and have arch support, very casual and boho for more relaxed summer/fall days :)

2: Cropped shirts, so cumfy, sooo many ways to wear them, and you look chic and relaxed without having to try too hard!
Whitney Port

3: Mass amounts of cheap Forever21 accessories!

Summer is almost over and I can hardly believe it! 9 days until I am officially a Senior! And then one more year until ... drum roll please...COLLEGE!!!
This past weekend as a final Summer hoorah, Erin and I went to Stowe, Vermont with her parents and stayed in their relatives huge mansion in the remote mountains!

I had never been to Vermont and whoa was it gorgeous, but there was no cell reception outside of town! I did find that when I stuck my phone out of our bedroom window, I got half a bar, oh countryside -- got to love it!! (It was a good break for my iPhone I'm sure!)
Saturday we went on this 5 mile bike trail along the West Branch River! It was beautiful! The sleek paved trail winded through a few little villages with cute, little, boutiquey shopping! And one of the shops, Green Envy Boutique, really caught my eye! With an amazing wall full of jeans (that I wish I had more time to try on), I was so impressed! I also loved their bohemian flowy jackets, sweatshirts, and skirts that the shop stocked lotssss of! My fav sweatshirt was a 39 Sixtyone @ velvet, a very awesome brand I have just recently discovered! They also had a large amount of the Baroni Jewelry, which is very eco chic!
No Website, but their contact is (802) 253-2661
1800 Mountain Rd
Stowe VT 05672
Mary Lou Baraw

After getting the store owners card and contact info, Erin and I went and got some old fashioned Stewarts soda! Which was a ton of fun! Parked outside was this hilarious van, "only in Vermont!"

After a night of swimming and checking out the pool house turned Workout Gym, we headed home stopping at the Ben and Jerry's Factory! We got to sample the new 2010 flavor Cookies and Milk, which is delish! Check it out for sure!

Crossing the border back to NY, we took the Ferry over Lake Champlain, which was just Gorgeous! Green Mountains and the Adirondacks both on the horizon at the same time! Breathtaking!

Now back in my city, I do kinda miss the country air which holds such a different feeling that I am very glad to have experienced!
Happy End of an amazing Summer!!

knee highs & teas

Today I read an article in Cosmo that really caught my eye! I love experimenting with new coffee/tea drinks and this article gave healthy alternatives to to the caffinne fix i need multiple times throughout the day. To change up your usual coffee ruotine, they suggested giving tea lattes a try. I love chai tea lattes, but they recomended green tea lattes because of the antioxidents! I got a grande green tea soy latte from Starbucks and loved it! But I can't give up the coffee and espresso...I am drinking a skinny vanilla latte as I type this, and it is 10:45 PM...I have a problem!!

Another idea is Bubble Tea, "Pearl Milk Tea," which was invented in Taiwan, and is a pretty big fad right now. Its sold around me at this small frozen yogurt shop, and I'm still trying to develop my liking for the interesting drink. Apparently you are supposed to eat the tapioca balls, they're like a jelly texture...something you don't quite expect when you slurp it up in your straw!
As I looked through the rest of the mag, and Vogue, Elle, Boho, and W, I saw one style in many spreads that I love for fall! Knee highs! Mainly with boots, but with flats they're uuber cute too!

Military Style and Perfume!

Forever 21 Jacket

Hey guys and gals! It's a rainy Sunday morning, hence I sit here writing this post with a biscuit and a cup of coffee.
Yesterday, I went shopping at our local mall with my friend Erin. I wanted a new outfit appropriate for work and dinner with my Grandma, yet trendy enough to still be my normal style! First we looked at Forever21. I found a cute coat, $40, but put it on hold. To buy or not to buy?
Next we went to H&M, where I found an outfit for $65! Top, bottom, accessories! Pretty good!
Top: $20
Bottom: $25
Bracelets: $10
Necklace: $5
Earrings: $5

Everything is H&M, minus my cheap little flat sandals, which are from the Gap.

I love the shirt; a linen blend material, military style button up! And the skirt is very cool too; stretchy khaki jegging material! The jewelery ties the outfit together, the wooden chunky bracelet and the thin bangles on the other wrist, the wooden gold and black beaded necklace, and finally the golden and black chunky hoops!

On another note, what's your signature scent?!

I currently am alternating between Philosophy's Pure Grace and Bath and Body's Japanese Cherry Blossom!

Any scents you love and want to share with the world?!

Breakfast with a side of Shopping

Huge Metal Pig!

This morning my Momma woke me up asking if I wanted to get a pastry downtown with her. Skipping ballet, we headed down for a light brunch. We had to park a few blocks from the little bakery and walking up we passed this beautiful antique garden/outdoor art shop. It's located in a small building behind Broadway, and I can't believe the countless times I have walked and driven by, without taking a second glance at this place! Heres just a few things I thought we're awesome!

Puss in Boots!

Yard of Art!

Finally ordering our pastries and tea, I got a rum raisin croissant swirl! Delicious! And my Momma got a small artichoke quiche.

After we ate, we went into this equestrian shop, which I have actually done some modeling for! Anyways, I love their merch. Huge selection of cowboy boots, Luchese and Charlie Horse mainly. They also have some awesome very unique bags! All very pricey, but worth it!

Juan Antonio Bag!

Wall of boots!!

Charlie Horse!
Love the emerald green!
The style is also more of a feminine cowgirl boot!

Funny Sign in the Window!!!!

Today I wore, ribbed jeggings rolled up, with Bernardo sandals, and a long draped tank!
Top: Charlotte Russe
Leggings: H&M
Shoes: Bernardo
Necklace: Me!
