My winter break doesn't feel like winter. It has been supper hot for the past three days. Today it was almost 80! It's kind of depressing :( I really despise the heat. It makes me cranky and oh so lazy.

On another note the giveaway post is finally up. You can win this beautiful white mod dress, blouse, and vintage leather bag! This Button up blouse is so soft and cute with its bow tie collar. The dress is baby doll style; a little form fitting at the top and then loose throughout. The dress and top can definitely fit most sizes. Both of these pieces are so beautifully and if you want to see more visit GypsyThreadVintage and don't forget to like them on FaceBook!

All you have to do is comment below with your first name and last name initial. The winner will be chosen at random and announced on January 4th! The winner will have to send me a picture of something with their name on it so no making up names guys! GOOD LUCK!

"I Won't Be Home For Christmas"

"Outside the carolers start to sing
I can't describe the joy they bring
Cause joy is something they don't bring me"

"So I stand with a dead smile on my face
Wondering how much of my time they'll waste
Oh god I hate these Satan's helpers"

"It's Christmas time again
It's time to be nice to the people you can't stand all year
I'm growing tired of all this Christmas cheer
You people scare me"

Christmas is my least favorite holiday. I find it rather depressing. Knowing that there are tons of kids out there that don't even have one present to open breaks my heart. It makes me feel so guilty to be so blessed. However, this summer I will be going to Mexico to help out at an orphanage. I am beyond excited. I can't wait for Christmas to be over so I can start shopping for them.

I hope you guys all have a wonderful holiday.

I got this very lovely blogger gift from Stephanie over at GypsyThreadVintage. I have been so busy with finals and stuff I haven't had time to share it. She sent me the most beautiful dress, very Mad Men style, a lovely patterned top, and a very rad bag to go with it. I'm so excited to shoot these looks. The best part is that you guys will get to enjoy this with me. One lucky winner will be chosen to win this stuff! I will be putting up more information on how to enter later. I'm waiting for the rain to stop here so I can shoot it :(  but for now you guys should really check out her shop.

You guys can all shop Stephanie's item on her etsy shop here. She has the most beautiful vintage pieces. This is a great shop for all those who don't have time to go looking for vintage outfits, she does that for you. She finds the most beautiful pieces and shares them with her customers. I picked my three favorite items from her shop and threw together some looks for all of you.

Apparently there is an entrance to the LA river right by my house and I didn't even know it! I've been there many times before too. I use to ride my bike there with my aunt when we were kids and I went to the school right next to it for a year. Anyways, it was actually a nice day out today. You would only understand this outfit if you lived here. Unlike today it's suppose to rain tomorrow. The good thing is that I have three weeks of school left! I'm starting to have more free time, so Bryan and I are able to shoot more. I just want this semester to be over already. By far the hardest yet!

I hope you guys have an amazing week!

"Say it ain't so."

"I can't confront you, I never could do...
That which might hurt you.
So try and be cool, when I say:
This way is a waterslide away from me That takes me further every day
Be cool"

"Say it ain't so a-woah-woah.
Your drug is a heartbreaker.
Say it ain't so a-woah-woah.
My love is a life-taker!"

Hey guys! For a lack of posting and wanting to update twice a week I thought I would share these photos I posed for a while back for my best friend. We took them in my room haha we just hung a white bed sheet (we obviously didn't iron it) and shot! I love shooting with bryan, we always have a lot of fun. I guess you could say he's my own personal photographer :) 

I hope your weeks way better then mine. I'm swamped with this Criminal Ethics paper. Just 4 weeks of the semester left!

"Something Else"

"Look at that
Here she comes
Here comes that girl again
One of the cutest since I don't know when
But she don't notice me when I pass"

 "Get me that girl and we go ridin' around
We look real sharp with the wide top down
I keep on dreamin' and thinkin' to myself
'When it all comes true, man, well that's something else'"


"My car's out front and it's all mine
It's a '41 job not a '59
I got that girl and I'm thinkin' to myself
'She's sure fine lookin', man, well she's something else'"

I'm such a shopaholic. I went to LA again and did some shopping with my best friend. It was a lot of fun. We stopped at a few shops and picked up some great things. I got some cute shoes, jewelry, dress, shorts, and band Tees. You can never have enough band tees haha. It was so sunny and hot out though. The cool thing is that all the boots are on sale because its so hot haha I could wear bots all year around! After shopping we did some roof top chillin. 

This O-Mighty dress was perfect for the weather. I love the Sid and Nancy design on it. I got this dress a long time ago and they don't sell it, but they have other cool stuff online. I don't know if they are going to restock this design, but they might. Sign up for their newsletters and it will keep you posted for sales and new items. 

This week is going by so fast. I've had a lot of fun and made a new friend. Next week I'm going to Las Vegas with my best friend and boyfriend. I'm so excited :) it's going to be a blast! 

Hope you guys are having a good week.

"I'm Just a Girl"


"The moment that I step outside
So many reasons
For me to run and hide
I can't do the little things I hold so dear
'Cause it's all those little things
That I fear"


"'Cause I'm just a girl I'd rather not be
'Cause they won't let me drive
Late at night I'm just a girl,
Guess I'm some kind of freak
'Cause they all sit and stare
With their eyes "

When I grow up I want to look as good as Gwen. I mean she's like 40 and has a six pack! She has so much energy when she performs live. The No Doubt concert I went to was for sure one of the best shows I've been to. This skirt reminds me of all those plaid pants she's always wearing. So bad ass. It's nice and fitted and oh so comfortable. The slit is pretty deep so if you don't like showing thigh don't get it haha. 

I hope you guys are having a good week!

"Spent the last month feeling bad ’bout myself
I couldn’t speak anything of real hope
And the day came when it hit me like lightning through my veins
A sudden change in my groove, in my walk"

And tonight I feel immortal
I said tonight I feel immortal
Tonight I feel immortal"

Have you ever woken up in the morning and told yourself "today I'm going to get shit done"? Well that was me this morning. I woke up early, went to a job interview, ordered some school books, and cleaned my room. I had the day off from babysitting, so I took advantage of it. I got a bunch of errands done and I even got to make this post for you guys. The best part is that its still early so I can do whatever I please with the rest of my day.

This shirt really summed up my attitude. I am so happy I ordered it! It was between this one or the "Don't Pray for Me" top. I think I'll buy that one next. If you haven't heard of High Heels Suicide before you should definitely give them a look. They have simple graphic tops that make a huge statement. They also constantly have sales. If you follow the creators instagram she updates it on news of the clothing. I know Dolls Kill carries some of the things, but not all. The top is of the softest cotton and has some distress detailing on the collar. Perfectly light material for supper hot Summer days like today. This is why I'm in my room and not outside ha!

Here's to a great week!

Happy 4th of July fellow Americans! I hope you guys had a great day celebrating. My day was so much fun. I was originally scheduled to close at work, but lucky for me one of my coworkers wanted a shift and she took mine. I was so relived because I really wanted to spend the day with my family. We had a little BBQ at my house and everyone came over. After, we watched Wold War Z illegally haha. The fireworks were fun because it was jacks first time seeing them and he looked so cute. He's my little cousin btw....I know a lot of people think he's my kid just because I'm Mexican haha.... Any who I had a great time with my family. How did you spend your holiday?

Yesterday I took Jack to the mall because he didn't want to nap and I passed by Cotton On. I usually don't shop there because I think their clothes is rather plain, but they were having this big sale. You know I can't resist a sale! This lace skater dress was only $10. I like it because its really light for summer so I won't get too hot in it and its simple so I can dress it up, down, or in this case layer it. I don't really like wearing dresses because I feel like I'm going to flash everyone so I wore my Nike compression shorts under. I highly recommend you get some if you feel uncomfortable like I do. It's a good deal because you can run in them and use them as spanks. They're also really thin and come in different lengths. 

Well, good night!
