What's in My Bag??

Hello Suzies, 

Let's fine out..

 FABU satchel from the luxurious and perfectly perfect TopShop.
Pencil because you never know when you'll need to write something and then need to erase it.. Oscar et la dame rose is a book I have been reading in my AP French class that I actually need to return to ma prof.  Finalment est mon journal qui WOAH soz.. Finally is my journal which hold my deepest and darkest secrets (random ideas, styling ideas, and wishlists).
 Here are some various coupons I have been given.  The Creme coffeehouse, Chic-fil-a, and Bella Ragazza all of which I must use by the end of the year.
 Hand sani because germs are not allowed.  Absinthe hand cream from the Body Shop, can I just say that this is the best hand lotion I have ever come upon and I wish I could have a lifetime supply.  Powder and powder brush for when you begin to shine brighter than a diamond.
 I think my iPod touch is in here purely because I had forgotten that it was in there.  As you can see it has been well used and is still used because I can't plug my phone up to my car and jam.  My phone is playing the one and only, ever lovely Haim.
 A thin ponytail holder, no-crease headband, rose gold bangle, gold bolt bracelet, and two pearl earrings minus one of the earring backs which is somewhere on the art room floor at school.
 A lot of lipsticks because we all need options/ I put them in there and neglect to put them back in the bathroom.  I store them in this paper Lush Cosmetics bag within my bag.
 Handmade yarn from a Shaker Village, a watermelon Dum Dum sucker, and a piece of copper sheeting for an art project I am doing.
 The contents of my "wallet" which is actually a small cosmetic bag so it has been excluded.  EOS minty lipbalm, an Abe and eleven cents, a hotel key card from my One Direction concert that I accidentally kept, my driver's license, and my yearbook staff press card.
Lastly my bag holds my glorious car keys and keychains. The One Direction one was given to me by Leslie and the other is from Anthropologie; they were both given to me on my sixteenth birthday, actually.

I hope you all enjoyed this, and good luck to everyone studying for finals!!

Snow Dayz

Hello Suzies, 

Yorkshire tea is delish.

 Cupcake hands.
Prepare to jig.

The time when students sit on the edge of their couch, crossing their fingers while watching the local news, waiting to hear the coveted words, "School has been called off.", has begun.  Some students beg for snow, but then you have 'that kid' who is like,"NOOOO I want to have a long summer."  Me too pal but one unexpected day off of school is gonna be ok.. I promise.  hahaha 
I woke up to the sound of a "Snow and Sleet Mix" this morning, or shall I say afternoon.  I got up ate a tangerine, watched some OnDemand Glee, and then started my morning routine.  My routine consists of putting my contacts in; brushing my teeth; washing and moisturizing my face; applying makeup; and doing my hair. I put on very minimal makeup today just so I didn't feel like a complete bum.  
My outfit I am currently wearing is one that I would not mind wearing for the rest of my life.  My top/tunic thing is from Apricot Lane; it is very light and flowy.  My leggings- me oh my I adore them- are from Forever 21.  This is only the second pair I have from there and I don't know why.  For starters they are not very expensive at all, I think they were like 8 or 9 dollars, and just have a really nice sturdy feel, ya know?  I highly recommend them!  
On to the second picture..  This is a lovely present that was given to me by my wonderful friend Lesley last year around this time.  Makes me feel like I'm with my ancestors back in Eire.. not quite.  I recommend it, not highly but I recommend it.  My rings that I am wearing are both sterling silver.  One is a monogram ring from an Etsy shop, the other is a midi ring from Free People. 
Love XO

Australian Cowgirl?!

Hello Suzies,

Winter is approaching at a high rate of speed, and I cannot wait!  Winter, after all, is my favorite season.  I also love wearing warm clothes.  Warm clothes require more material, which gives them the potential to be on a higher level of "lovablity"..catch my flow?

Give it up for my dad, who caught this candid without knowing it!  The pleasant turned glutenous yet still pleasant American holiday has come and gone.  I love that holidays because the family gets together for a nice time.  I also love the holidays, as mentioned previously, because of the cold weather attire.  The inspiration for this outfit started with my hat *heart eyes*.  This is no ordinary brimmed hat, it is an Australian cowboy hat.  That's right ladies and gentlemen.  I rediscovered this hat in the storage of my garage and knew I was onto something.  My dad was in the Navy for a while and he had the opportunity to sail around the world.  He was stationed primarily in the far east and Australia.  He purchased this Made-In-Australia hat, not Made-In-China, AUSTRALIA.  I think it's pretty cool.  So that's my story of the day!  

Hat- Australia..
Silver Cuff- Forever21
Monogram Necklace- Moon&Lola c/o Blossoms
Chambray Shirt- Gap
Shaw- Free People
Brown Acid Washed Harem Pants- Urban Outfitters
Orange Cone Heels- ModCloth
