Aha! Let us all run around screaming in joy...or at least i will.......;P

What you ask, has me in such a frenzy? Although it does not take much....I am known to stand waiting at my door for the little mail delivery person from Amazon to deliver my package...i swear it take so damn long....but you know theres that handy little "Track your package" button on Amazon.com that lets you know exactly where it is....not that i've ever pressed it...pshhh...no freakin way.......

Anyways....i have realized that PLAID....yes I feel as if I should write the word PLAID in CAPITAL letters to signify its importance....i am sorry if that pains you...but in the name of eccentricity...it must be done ;))

So back to the PLAID....it is actually literally back...i was reading Bazzaar(which btw who the hell knows how to spell it...not me that for sure) with Jessica Simpson on the cover who btw looks like a man....there was something about the photo shoot i just thought she looked....manly....maybe its the brown hair...anyways whatever it was it was just bugging me...i was like "can you please get a cover girl that actually resembles a women"...
and don't get me wrong, I don't actually have anything against Jessica Simpson...she used to be cute, but lately she's just been piling on the makeup....its not a good look for someone w/ her face...

its not uploading my photos...by the time this sentence it done...they're probably be here...or not......internet cannot display webpage...curses...
AHA! There they are....

Something about this just looks...cheasy or manish...

These are the only pictures i actually liked out of the bunch, and they werent even in the magazine...they were online, but they're a whole lot less posed so i like them....
I don't even know how i got on that Jessica tangent...that wasn't even planned in the post at all....so anyways I was reading Bazaar and I noticed that PLAID....is making its comeback...I for one am very excited...
all in agreement...raise your hands....good...

www.freepeople.com
You cannot imagine my love for these pants...I want them, plus the way the model is rockin them w/ subtly untied scuffy boots is amazing edgy.....in a good way...

The Men's Sections at stores are seriously overlooked...your next trip to Gap, head straight there...i actually have this shirt, and its perfect belted at the waist...i love it....its a mecca i tell you..

I'm not sure if this dress is even on sale @ www.mookakinney.com which btw is an uber cool brand check it out...but I honestly am in love with it...the gray PLAID is so chic...

Pretty scarf....but honestly we all know that scarves never really look that good on...i mean it takes me like 20 minutes to "loop" it around perfectly so that it looks like i just threw it on...everyone hides it...but i know, deep inside that you spend time "looping" your scarves like me...its ok...really


In theory, I should hate these PLAID bootie thingies, but in real life i want them....something about them is just alluring....



www.shopbop.com

Marc Jacobs...can he ever do anything wrong? even if this is for summer I still love it....

I like this shirt quite a lot...its blurry and pretty...

www.delias.com

These will be perfect when i had too many ice cream bars and will not squeeze into my amazingly tight PLAID pants...see above...and below...


www.urbanoutfitters.com

These are like the first pair of pants bratty rebellious little sister...i am quite taken with them...

That was basically the PLAID Parade...it was very fun collecting PLAID peices...they are everywhere....they are among us....

And btw...does anyone know why all my sidebars are on the bottom...it is bugging me quite perfusely and nothing works to get them back up...someone out there has to be a techy...please help? :))) I will be very grateful......

DOWNLOAD: "The Ballad of Love and Hate" The Avett Brothers...I love this song...its so nice to listen to, and the story it tells is actually happy...i was listening to it when i was making my bed today and then i just sat on my bed for like 4 minutes listening to the song in complete serenity...it was very fun...

in the begining of my post i was rambling about Amazon.com and how they never deliver and I felt i should alert you that today the Buffy the Vampire Slayer i ordered came 3 days early!!! I was SO HAPPY...highlight of my week...now i can spend the week watching mind numbing television before i am shipped to the wilderness....

I think I'm addicted, but at least its healthy addiction....no harm done...right?

Sorry for me being MIA...I was locked in my room for a few days totally engrossed in Harry Potter 7.....It was SO AMAZING....read it if you havent...by the end i was like crying.....but it was amazing...
I honestly think that I have an addiction to Prada Ad campaigns....I flip through magazines waiting till I get to that fateful page when...BOOM! Beautiful photography, gorgeous models, Ah-mazing clothes...and then, its like my life is complete....until of course the next rounds of ads comes out... these are by far not my favorite ads, but....I do still love them....these staring Sasha Pivovarova, Irina Kulikova, Anabela Belikova

The shoes w/ the colored tights

....its so edgy chic I <3>


Sasha=gorgeous....


This is different from the other shoe one, but I'm in love with it....the shoes are SO pretty...and the feathered skirts....

I actually am OBSESSED w/ patent gloves and patent clutches....i can't stand it...
Part of the reason I love the Prada ads so much, is that my favorite model Sasha Pivovavora...I love her...I think she is sooooo pretty...and the way she works every single ad campaign and editorial she's in just makes me so jealous.....they say models are suppossed to be like blank canvases and Sasha just equals that....



Every single one of these photos from the August issue of Vogue, is completely and TOTALLY different....thats why I love them...she's able to take on a completely different persona for every photo she's in...ANTM girls should take lessons from her...or Tyra should....



Innocent Sasha....

Glamourous Studious Sasha

Street Edge Sasha...


40's Sasha...
Edgy Sasha...

Rocker Sasha....

Ok right now I am having total ADD watching the 1st season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer....and every single time Angel appears on ths screen I honestly die...he is soooooooo.........HOT....its hard to handle..

DOWNLOAD: "Keeper" by Yellowcard....fresh off their new album...I <3>

That Scottish accent draws me in almost as much as chocolate icecream on a day like today...and i guess the musics ok...haha

Hello all....I was just inspired to post right now even though it is nearly midnight, and i am going to have to wake up @ the un-godly hour of 7:45 to get up for Pilates, which is alright b/c that is how I will have a nice Pilates body....plus my teacher is basically the shizz....she's really nice....anyways, not more blogging about Pilates, although I am tempted to...and you know what , I will rant for a little while....Pilates is really good for you, I discovered it w/ my mom, and if you're into like not lifting iron, I mean pumping...haha....its very low impact but VERY strength building, and you get to do all sorts of gymnasticy things....I love it....and it makes your posture perfect, which makes me love it even more....








So onto what i actually meant to blog about....tonight I went to see Snow Patrol which was very excited, since they're one of my favorite bands, so seeing them live was amazing b/c I actually knew some of the lyrics....imagine that ha!



They played all of my favorite songs, "Chasing Cars" (of course), "Run", "Open Your Eyes", "Chocolate", "Make This Go on Forever" I dont know if there are any fans, but if you guys love them, try and see them in concert.....all of their lyrics are so romantic....omg i almost died when they spoke with their HOT Scottish accents, a la Sean Connery a.k.a. my extreme crush....so what if hes old? Hes still hot...



To think I might not see those eyes


Makes it so hard not to cry


And as we say our long goodbye


I nearly do





"Run" Lyrics



I mean how can you not just melt listening to that.....i love it....



Anyways, I am pretty tired but I have been dilligently searching like a good fashion addict for a pair of flat suede boots for fall....perferably "slouchy" if you get my jist...I found this really adorable pair on Zappos but then it said that they are sized REALLY small, and I already have a hard enough time trying to find shoes that fit my obnoxious giant size 11 feet...i hate it....but I am dying to get a pair of boots, I need them....they are going to be my key peice this fall....I NEED THEM....not that im getting frustrated at my stupid feet or anything....stupid genes.....



These are the Zappos ones...arent they really cute? I think so, and the heels not big, because I'm already 5'11 and I don't need to be even taller then the boys then I already am....
They're made by a company called Fitzwell Artisan...somehow I think thats funny....$100.00...babysitting is going to pay off....;)


And then I found this pair on Urban Outfitters....they're really cute too...nice and simple...easy to tuck jeans into and pair with my chic outfits...haha...and I'm debating which pair to get.....these come in like hot pink and yellow too, but I'm sticking with the classics....how boring of me....

Suede Color Block D'Orsay Flats...$48.00
And then these shoes....what can I say about them other then the fact that I am in love with them? They are so gorgeous....the colors and the cut and the gold lining and just everything....og i want them so badly to wear with my jeans....they also come in a black/grey/purple version which is also so pretty...too bad they dont even come in my size....FANTASY ENDED....


And then this...this isn't even for the clothes....its for the models malnurished-bony-skeleton-looking-back....I mean come on.....Thats just annoying... its not like we're @ Prada's Fall 2007 Runway show where all of the Eastern European beauties "natrually" look like that....this is frickin Urban Outfitters...I don't need a model whose back bones could literally be wings....and I'm not trying to be annoying here, but can we feed this girl....I just want to see a frickin model that looks like a girl...not a skeleton...there are kids in Africa who are starving, and we have models here looking like that volentarily....everyone says that, but comeone someone shove a cupcake in that girls mouth....

Now....I'm done being a complainer....I'm going to camp soon, and I'm trying to brainstorm what to where while trecking around the forest @ 8,000 feet.....

DOWNLOAD: In honor of Snow Patrol tonight...."Set the Fire to the Third Bar" featuring Martha Wrainright....this song is honestly amazing and if you need to be inspired by something...this is it...

xoxo...happy summer while its lasting

The new improved and halfway through the summer me...plus she's got something special...and something happy...and i love harry....i guess its the scar


This seems pretty early to be thinking about things like this, but I am actually UBER excited for back-to-school shopping...and no, not the kind where I spend hours at Staples slaving over which size binder is better for my 3rd period ancient civilizations class...i mean the kind where my mom takes me to buy.....ahhh let me just soak it in a little....new clothes...what a beautiful 2 sylables....the main reason in this, is because this summer had pretty much been the summer of my....drum roll please...transformation!...and its not even over yet...;P I know its great right?

My hair is actually growing....sounds like a weird thing to be excited about, but my friends constantly make fun of me b/c in all of 8th grade it seemed like it grew 1 inch(btw thats not true, i just trimmed it so it seemed like it wasnt growing)....its shoulder length and really blonde from being outside...CA cliche...but I cannot wait till its longer and im going to get a really edgy hipster cut....i am the coolest person i know haha yeah right...

I GOT MY BRACES OFF....its pretty self explanitory....:)))))))

And so far I've been eating really healthy and working out and i've lost 10lbs, so that means that back to school shopping is going to be extra fun....ahh exercise is a beautiful thing my friends...

I feel like a bad "self image" magazine, but....

Mmmm....that below is literally my weakness...i could eat a whole pint of Hagies Chocolate in one episode of Greys Anatomy...not a good sign....

I took a pic of these cupcakes in Malibu last year, b/c they were so frickin huge! Seriously, jumbo cupcakes...i sort of couldnt handle it...

5 Ways To Get Outside and Frickin Burn Some of that Icecream Sundae You Just Devoured....
1. Go on a bikeride....it honestly is very fun...bring some friends...or some adorable boys, a helmet, and a picnic...yum...

2. Go running on the beach....if you dont have a beach, move...no jk...but hit the pavement in brand new chic running sneakers and run until you cant breath...soothing... go to http://www.nike.com/ and customize some shoes so you can be the best dressed jogger there...

\3. Go for a hike...we all have to be living near some mountains...right? you will be dead on the way up...but the view at the top is worth it....that way you will feel like you accomplished something...

This is possibly the MOST unnattractive picture of my friends and I, but at least the view is gorgeous...i got up at 7 to climb the mountain like a frickin goat...im on the far right in the cool very-stylish-bought-in-the-boys-department-@-Target-Superman-shirt... this is to show that i actually hike...ha...

4. Take a swim....do some laps....one form of exercise where you DONT SWEAT...3 cheers..

5. Take up surfing so you can convincing fist bump, and say things like sick, rad, and dude that was off the hook....another plus, you can hit the lineup with all the adorable surfer boys...ahhh....
Now that I'm done my health lecture for the post, i have concluded that i found a new fashionista that i sort of...um....am in love with....yeah make fun....


KERI RUSSELL


I never really noticed her all that much, I mean I knew she was in M:III w/ Tom Cruise, but I just thought of her as another actress...then I was ready People Style Watch, and I saw this picture, below...and it really caught my eye...i mean its not that like flashy or eclectic as a lot of the other stars we see dressing, but I loved the classic-ness of the look....the blue buttom down, tucked in and rolled up, the classic blue skinnies, the black leather bag, and then the low brown wedge heels...even her hair looks low maitnence chic...and there it was...i was like...i WANT to pull off that look...seriously


She seems to really like rockin' this hat...which I sort of really like...and as long as she's pulling it off as chicly as she is...power to her...I like the purple scarf too...<3 id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5086551064728826562" style="DISPLAY: block; MARGIN: 0px auto 10px; CURSOR: hand; TEXT-ALIGN: center" alt="" src="http://bp2.blogger.com/_vEnADJqTrgc/RpcPPmEL8sI/AAAAAAAAAPc/0XMMz3o-tOE/s320/keri2.jpg" border="0">

Awww....she had her baby, and even here she looks low maitnence chic...the baby sling is really cute I think...



She looks gorgoeus and glam in InStyle...



I think this was for the Waitress premeire, but the color of the dress is gorgeous..and i love the halter/not halter ness of it...does that make sense? She black heeled and toed shoes are perfect match with the dress...the juxtaposition rules...



I just think she seems really nice and sweet...and I totally envy people who can wear whatever and look amazing....grrr...


On a totally new note...i found these on http://www.fredflare.com/ since they're having their annual "Next Big Thing" contest, where all these cool designers make cool edgy products and one gets chose...anyways you attach these on your Ipod earbuds, arent they adorable?? Seriously they are so cute...and my Ipod needs some I-ttitude...oh gosh its way too late to be blogging.....you get all three for $12 bucks....yay








OH! I saw Harry Potter last night...and it was SO good...seriosly my love is restored...not that it was ever wavering...I want to meet harry...go and see it, but get your tickets early, b/c it was all sold out....

DOWNLOAD: "Love Song" Sara Bareilles....very catchy...I downloaded her whole album on Itunes for like 7 bucks...i figured it was a bargain...she reminds me of Regina Spektor and Corrinne Bailey Rae mixed together...

xoxo enjoy summer while its still here...

Summer favorites and a trio of magical proportions...

I love lists....what can I say, they're fun....they entertain me...so I decided to list some of my favorite things about summer...after all it is one of the best times of the year...COMPLETELY school, obligations,and homework free....no stupid history papers to write....no geomatry problems to solve out....more time to devote putting my outfits together...the most important thing after all :)

MY FAVORITES OF SUMMER


1. Entire days spent dedicated to Harry Potter....sounds like the dorkiest thing imaginable, but insult Harry...insult me...grrr...I honestly love the series, I just reread the 5th and 6th books to get ready for the new movie and book....and i was like "WOW! they are really good"...so i spent a few sun drenched days outside with my nose immersed in the world of wands and wizards...it was the most fun i've had all summer...haha
2. Perfectly perfect summer sales...I got a shirt @ urban outfitters yesterday for 5$...it was the highlight of the week i must say...


3. Deliciously adorable boys....this one may need a sub-catagory...


A) The surfer boy...possibly the best breed of the species...defining characteristics: perfect golden brown tan, long lean muscles from days and days of ripping or shredding or whatever, shaggy shaggy brown or blonde hair(or brown w/ natrual blonde highlights from the salt water), board in hand, says things like "dude" "sick" "rad" "bottom turn" "cut back"...


B) The working boy...hottie hottie hot....defining characteristics: ambitious, will pay for things b/c he has the extra cash from "working", extremely cute lingering smiles ahhh, hot eyes they all have them i dont know why, may have a nametag...even better to meet him by...;)


$$$$$$$$
C) Random boy....love them....characteristics: you never see them again, like to lurk in public places where you can lurk right back at them, will make insane eye contact, usually shy-ish, nice smiles that make them hot...


D) Nerdy cool boy....subtle hotness, glasses which i find amazing, sweater vests, skinny jeans when its like 80 out, great eyes magnitized by glasses, most likely skinnier then me...haha


4. Saturdays spent watching movies...it doesnt sound summery, but when would i have time to do that during.................school....ugh


5. S'more hybrids, i'm saying cookie/marshamellow/cookie dough...makes you mouth water huh? My friend and i saw it in a book and we drooled over it for like 40 hours...we may possibly make them on her stove, which sort of strikes me as pathetic, but thats ok....at least we can EAT them...
6. Spending my afternoons on my deck...armed w/ magazines, SPF 30, and a smoothie...nice...


7. Speaking of smoothies, my recent discovery of blueberry banana...i must be retarted since it had been around for about one BILLION years...
8. The fact that I have lost 5 lbs being healthy and working out....:)))))


9. My hot trainer who my friend and i share for a very nice price actually....his eyes are like the dark ocean and i am farerly certain he thinks we are dingbats....oh well...


10. Summer music....the new CD's....now to think of it i really need to be making a summer playlist...
11. Sleeping in till 11:30 ON A MONDAY.....HALLELUJAH.....


12. A broken chocolate icecream cone....


13. The ability to rationally carry 4 pairs of cheapy sunglasses in my bag for when i need a "change"...go to pairs: Faux Aviators, Red Wayfares, Giant Hipster Black Ones, Rhinestoned Target Ones
14. My room's new beautiful maroony pink shade....3 cheers for redecoration! :D


15. Soccer camp....hours and hours of jumping and diving on the ground onto the fresh cut grass in the sweltering heat....YAY..i am excited though

16. Getting up @ 7 to hike...up a mountain, then dying on the way up, getting attacked by flies at the top, and running all the way down, in the space of 2.5 hours....
17. Buying fireworks...making a fire on the beach w/ damp wood and newspapers so it pretty much didnt light on fire at all....but the fireworks did :)) Under this should also go meeting a kid from Lebanon named Jorgo who hilariously followed you around all 4th of July...haha its true
18. Biking from my friends house to the beach.....and almost getting run over in the process...what a cliche...I did feel very California girl doing though, which I thought was extremely entertaining, I felt like the Beach Boys "California Girls" should be playing in the backround while I road my beach cruiser...
19. Summer concerts...I saw Gwen Stefani...she was amazng I honestly recomend going if you can get you hands on some tickets...


20. The ability to come back to school completely tan and mysterious.....i wish...


Back to the topic of Harry Potter...the Boy Who Live...the Chosen One...is it bad I know all of his names? Anyways....the actors who play Ron, Hermione, and Harry have become some of my favorites...the boys are adorably cute, Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint...and Emma Watson has grown into being super pretty and pretty chic...



They all look so happy....and cute....I have to say I'm a Harry fan...I think Daniel Radcliffe is adorable, a little pale but still...

Emma's dress is gorgeous. The color is great with her complection(ugh I sound like some obnoxiously perky sales assosciate at like Perky Land), and she looks gorgeous...grrr... ..the necklace fits it perfectly, luckily she didnt choose something to clunk it up. And Katie Leung, I actually really like her outfit, the tights are quirky but I think it adds her personal chicness.. As for the guys, Daniel's pretty much pulling off the converse w/ suit...which is hard, but it looks hot, and Rupert just looks....hot in a I'm-not-trying-at-all-way, he probably isn't...:)



But now on to just Emma, who I think is gorgeous, I'm sure she's going to have a great career after HP....she seemes so clever too, just like Hermione :)) This photoshoot was from Entertainment I think? It came up on Google




My favorite pic of the bunch. The Wayfarers are insta-cool, and she's pulling them off SO well without smiling....She's too cool to be smiling...I would be laughing like a hyienna while the photographer glared at me...

SHE IS SO PRETTY....this is very I'll-pummel-you-through-the-wall-if-you-touch-me-but-i'll-still-look-gorgeous-doing-it....And those boots are to die for..

I love this photo too....again...those boots...


This photo is so cute and different from the other ones tho, she's all cute and pretty and girly, and her smile is adorable...I <3>

Emma's really grown up....
