Nespresso perfecto

Another perfect day today. Went to the mall after lunch with B, but we picked up shaken black tea at Boiling Point before heading over. We shopped at Zara and H&M where I picked up some tops and found a pair of really cheap yet stylish Chelsea boots. I saw some really nice pieces at Madewell which I'm hoping to save up for and B spent time in J Crew and Club Monaco looking at shirts, pants, and jackets. He decided on a nice jacket from J Crew in the end because there was also a 25% off $150+ deal. We also got ham and cheese croissants from Vie De France in between the shopping and we stopped at the Nespresso bar. I thought the Nespresso and Chelsea boots totally topped it off nicely.........absolutely happy about today. (-: 


P.s. we saw this beautiful jacket at club monaco today (totally NYC style) but kinda too expensive. But I thought I'd share. 

TGIF: update.

Had a real good day yesterday. 
Pool with B, went home to rinse off. got a java chip frap at Starbucks- yum I haven't had a frap in a while, and then we went to Barnes and Noble to read magazines. I found Frankie and Company but came home with only Company. For dinner, I took my sister to shabu and after that we came home relax and I got to play games on the iPad (I never get to use the iPad). 

Ps. I feel envious seeing my friends go back to school in NYC or going to study abroad.

mood: exhausted

I've been pretty inspired by and have been drawing inspiration from Lils, Ivan Trejo, Chelsea Elayne, and my bestie C recently.

me0w. I fear for school right now.
but I'm a little excited that I've planned out a potential road trip up north with friends, then following going out of country with C if all follows through.
more excitingly, H is coming home and (haven't told him yet but he'll see from this) that ABCH & I are going to go to LA to go shopping and to the Getty. Sort of also want to take a trip to the Orange Circle...

I just wish I could learn how to focus more and stop putting things off until last minute.

keep you up all night

now playing: Mr. Hudson | Fred Astaire
mood: stressed
I hate going onto my computer because every time I do, I get carried away and waste so much time doing unproductive things.
I did find a lovely project, and (obviously) manage to read through all the posts so far up to date. It's a forty day dating experiment based on two New Yorkers with past relationship issues. My favorite post is probably day 5.
My three week class is so far intensive. With four hours of lab in the morning, a thirty minute break, then two and a half hours of lecture, I'm already worn out. Then follows another one hour of supplemental instruction. We have class three times a week and an exam on the fourth day. It makes me feel that I don't have enough time in a day to finish and cover or review everything I've learned that day. Hopefully I don't have to come in contact with another computer before Thursday afternoon.

Trying to shoot more in 35mm. Walmart was selling 37exp. disposables for the low price of $5! I feel a little regretful not buying any. Maybe next week?
I also managed to forget my entire pen bag at home, so I have to resort to using 'freebie' pens.
