The desire for all things lovely and wonderful.


well it has been awhile since i last posted anything. lately, i have been CRAVING shopping in my life. however, since i only work part time and i have racked up my credit card debt quite high, i haven't been able to do much shopping at all. for my birthday however, i received some money and i hit the shoppes! A LITTLE BIT OF RETAIL THERAPY NEVER HURT ANYONE. : ) today, i decided to do a photo shoot in my backyard, of some of the new pieces i've acquired the past several weeks.



today was my 19th birhtday! my last year to be a teen is ahead of me. as of 7 oclock tonight i officially turned nineteen years young. i had a fabulous day getting jamba! going to the happiest place on earth a.k.a t&co., getting my hair did, and celebrating with a yummy dinner with my family at buca di beppo! i love spending time with the people who mean everything to me. throughout all the chaos and calamity i made it through the day with a smile on my optimisic face the entire time. : D

My bucket list for all the things i want to do before i turn 20:

1. Get my first tattoo!
2. Go skydiving!
3. Learn to surf!
4. Roadtrip!
5. Read a book in an entire sitting!(like when i was younger)
6. Be certified to scuba!
7. Fall in love!
8. Save $1000,00! (at least)
9. Discover my passion!
10. Cherish every moment!!!


Lately I've been putting my vegetarian cooking skills to use. the other day I made dinner since my parents are out of town. I made it using things that I already had in my house. I made a lovely spinach salad with candied walnuts-so yummy, chopped apple, and chopped grapes with a homeade rice vinegar dressing on top. SO DELICIOUS. Then, I prepared an entree of quinoa-a type of grain with lots of protein and sauteed it with a chopped onion and vegetable broth. I added a can of corn and two cans of black beans and seasoned it and let it sit for awhile. In the end, it was so yummy that I had three non-vegetarians like it too! I guess cooking classes are starting to pay off and I'm becoming more independent than ever! Oh yeah, only one month exactly until my birthday!!!


i absolutely adore my hot pink fish eye camera from urban outiftters! i love how this camera lens turns any 'simple' or 'regular' photo into a real work of art! this was taken several months ago, but i wanted to share this beauty! xo



i am so very excited that my finals are over and it's finally summertime in southern california! unfortunately, i will be taking summer school BOTH sessions starting next week. oh well. the sooner i get classes out of the way, the sooner i will be able to transfer. well a lot has been going on since my last post. my older sister michelle got engaged! and lucky me gets to be one of the maid of honors! it is very fun constantly keeping my eyes open for sweet wedding inspirations and checking on venues with her. she is new to this process as am i. so it should be exciting to see how everything falls into place. thats it for now. hopefully i'll have something exciting happen in the next few days that i can post about! <3>
