TGIF.

WHAT’S EVERYONE UP TO THIS WEEKEND? I AM HOPING TO FINISH PACKING FOR MY TRIP TONIGHT AND THEN ENJOY EVERY LAST BIT OF THE BOYFRIEND ON SATURDAY. I TAKE OFF EARLY SUNDAY AND WE WON’T SEE EACH OTHER FOR A WEEK STRAIGHT. NOT A FAN. HE’S HEADING TO THE EAST COAST FOR WORK AND I’LL BE HEADING TO THE WEST FOR PLAY. HE DEFINITELY DREW THE SHORT STICK- SORRY HANDSOME!

SO PACKING. I’VE NOTICED I’VE BEEN GRAVITATING TOWARDS EMBROIDERED PIECES FOR THIS TRIP. MY SUITCASE IS CURRENTLY UP TO FOUR EMBROIDERED ITEMS- SUBJECT TO INCREASE IN THE NEXT 48 HOURS. MY FAVORITE SO FAR IS THIS ONE HERE- PERFECT FOR TRAVELING WITH THE BESTEST. EMBROIDERY IS A VERY SIMILAR ANIMAL TO PATCHES, AND SINCE YOU ALL ENJOYED THE RAINBOW PATCHWORK OUTFIT AS MUCH AS I DID, I THOUGHT I’D ROUND UP SOME OF MY FAVORITE EMBROIDERED PIECES TODAY.

LISTEN. THROUGHOUT COLLEGE I WORKED AT ALL OF THE BEST OPENING PRICE POINT RETAILERS- THINK FOREVER 21, DSW, H&M. WEEKEND DRINKS WERE TYPICALLY PAID FOR THANKS TO THE AGGRESSIVE  “FRAT DADDY’S” AT THE BARS, BUT MAMA STILL HAD TO PAY FOR HER WEEKEND WARDROBE SOMEHOW. THEREFORE, CLOCKING HOURS AT THE LOCAL MALL WAS A MUST. NOT ONLY DID I GET A SWEET DISCOUNT ON MY BODYCON DRESSES (A WHOPPING 10%, WHY FUCKING BOTHER?), BUT I WAS ALSO ABLE TO SHOP THE NEW RECEIPTS FIRST. A COLLEGE GIRL’S DREAM COME TRUE. ANYWAYS, I DESPERATELY NEEDED MY $40 PAYCHECK TO GO FAR AND I KEPT GETTING FRUSTRATED AT THE FACT THAT I WAS ULTIMATELY THROWING MY MONEY AWAY ON THESE “BARGAIN” PRODUCTS. I MEAN, RAISE YOUR HAND IF YOU’VE BOUGHT SOMETHING AT ONE OF THESE PLACES TO ONLY HAVE IT LAST ONE OR TWO WEARS? TRUE DEFEAT. FORTUNATELY, AFTER SOME TIME, I LEARNED TO SHOP SMART AND I WAS NO LONGER GETTING BURNED ON MY STACKS OF PAPER (ALBEIT MINISCULE). Read More
