Story of a Jetsetter: Part II

Story of a Jetsetter: Part II

After a long flight, Scarlett landed at Heathrow, and took the Underground to the West End where she found a hotel. The dawn of the next day was gray and dreary, but in a colorful Anna Sui frock and sparkly flats, she brightened up the streets of London town. Some shopping at Sisley and Zara and a fresh meal at Pret a Manger took up the beginning of her day, and by the afternoon, the clouds had cleared enough for a beautiful stroll through Kensington Gardens. Satisfied, she strolled around the ... Italian Garden fountains, and wondered which city would be her next destination.

*Sorry I haven't been on much. With my Gov. School apps and midterms all last week, I haven't had a lot of free time...

Sparkle and Skinnies

Blouse, Kensie; Skinnies, H&M; Trench Coat, H&M; Necklace, Charlotte-Russe; Headband, F21;

Hello, loves. How was everyone's week? Mine was very busy, I think I got maybe 20 hours of sleep this whole week. I had a ton of papers do, a fashion project to finish, lacrosse conditioning, and midterms next week.

This outfit was from Monday, I wore it despite all the snow we got where I lived, because I am a part of this group at a mall near me called Teen Board. We put on fashion shows at the mall, and help out with other mall activities. It's a lot of fun, and this is my second year in Teen Board. Monday was our first meeting of the year, and we have a show coming up the first week of February.
However, we usually do runway, and this time, we're doing mannequin modeling, where we basically split into groups and model in store windows. I'm so excited, but I'm kind of scared because we'll be in the windows for 45 minutes each. My group is modeling Finish Line and Bandolinos.

Well, that's all for now, I have some papers to fix : )

A Wonderful Day in History

Today marks the beginning of a new era in American history. For the first time ever, an African-American was elected and sworn in as the President of the United States of America.

I have faith that President Obama will do the best he can in making the US a better place. I stand behind him completely. I absolutely adore the Obama family. Michelle is so elegant and classy, she is bound to become a style icon for this century. And Malia and Sasha are adorable. They show poise and grace, while still radiating that infectious childlike-energy. thought they looked fabulous in their outfits today, and I especially liked Malia's coat.

Honestly, before November 4th, 2008, as much as I hoped and wished, I never truly believed that I would be able to see this day... or at least as soon as now. It's an incredible feeling, knowing that I am a part of history. And so are you : )

Story of a Jetsetter: Part I

Story of a Jetsetter: Part I

She was a starlet named Scarlett. Flawless, fabulous, and fierce, but sick of her monotonous, cliche Hollywood life. At seventeen, she had already cranked out five box-office hits and her last two albums went double-platinum. She was done with the charity galas, the movie premieres, the award shows. So, she grabbed her passport, slipped into a Moschino tunic and a pair of Ray-Bans, and boarded the next flight to London, the Cali sunset fading behind her.

New thing... Thoughts?

Style Crush: Emma Watson

Is it me, or does she always look impeccable at almost every event that she attends? Am. Very. Jealous. : )

A Bit of Cabin Fever...

Cabin fever has hit me hard. With the planning of summer vacations, the menacing looks of my unfinished Governor's school applications, the less than friendly weather, and Fashion Week coming closer with each passing day, I have epic cabin fever. I am already a generally restless person, but January is killing me. My least favorite months are February and March, when the weather is extra crappy, and all the store are in the winter-spring limbo, with size-14 sweaters dominating the racks and the temptation to pay full price for a pair of sandals that I probably won't be able to wear for another month.

On the bright side, I finally bought the new Teen Vogue, though I was very disappointed how thin it was. But, Leighton Meester was on the cover, and being one of my style idols, I had to buy it. I think it's lovely how she has grown up over the past year and evolved with her style. Also, I think that she is brilliant as Blair on Gossip Girl, I don't think that anyone could do a better job than she does.

Hmmm, what else? I got a new nail color, it's a shimmery, very deep maroon color. The funny thing is, I usually don't paint my fingernails too often, but I've been buying nail polish a lot lately. Nail poliish=Something to do, besides go online... Though typing and clicking does help the polish dry faster, I must say.

Well I think that's all for now. How's everyone's year going? Feel free to comment, I always reply.

Tube time

Hello, loves. I know I haven't been on for a while, things have been busy.

I finally bought Breakfast at Tiffany's a few days ago. I watched it, and overall, it was a good movie. Ms. Hepburn sparkled like a Tiffany diamond. The music was good, the concept was cute, and it was funny at times. However, the movie didn't dazzle me. It shimmered. It shined. But, it didn't dazzle. I am planning on getting other Hepburn movies though, like My Fair Lady and Roman Holiday.

I also recently watched Pretty in Pink. It was also pretty good. Maybe it's just my love of the '80s movies... The humor is just so straight-forward, and some times it's just the cheesy-factor itself that cracks me up.

Gossip Girl last night= INSANE. Everyone who tried to talk to me between 8-9PM got the wrath, because I was so into it. I'm not going to spoil anything, but it was good.

I'll probably do another outfit post soon, so look out for that.

I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."
