     HELLO HELLO!! GOSH, I've missed blogging over the past few days. I have been so busy with putting together my online store, it's been consuming most of my time not to mention still making more shorts to sell. I ENJOY it though!!! 
For the love of OMBRE and hair color, I did some experimenting with my braids and used some color hair spray. I've ALWAYS loved the whole ombre effect for my hair but my mom would never let me do such  a thing because I would have to first bleach my hair, which would damage my hair so I came up with an alternative...(color hair spray, DUH Fei). I love how it came out, it is temporarily so by the end of the day its already fading. I used hot pick and this vibrant blue but it looks darker because my hair is black, I bought both sprays from SALLY's beauty supply store. I love how it turned out.  I'm wearing my gorgeous thrifted skirt, the denim top is also thrifted as well. I barely wear this teal hat but I thought I would give my black one a rest for the day, heehee. If that hat could talk, it woud tell me to "layoff on wearing it because its needs a break." i wear it wayyyy to much, it completes me.
        Summer is here already, I can't believe I completed my first year in college already. I saw my grade report for second semester and saw that I got straight A's just like first semester. WHOOP-WHOOP, Im definitely not one to brag about grades but I'm just so proud of myself. From my first year in college, I've learned that time management is key and you have to be other words, "time waits for no one."

I got my first blog feature from Teen! Check it out and feel free to check out other post. Teen Savvy aims to provide a place for teens to keep up with current events. Thank you Teen Savvy for the feature.

Thrift Store Goodies: Lace and Floral

May 24, 2012

 I plan on hemming the skirt and making it shorter, I really love the vintage floral print on them!
  I have a D.I.Y idea in mind for this jacket
GREETINGS Guyssss!!! So I went thrift shopping with my mom yesterday and I got a lot goodies. I really didn't think I was going to get much or anything but surprisingly....I did. We went to Salvation Army and a Goodwill that was forty five minutes away from where we live, so it wasn't our local goodwill. I love going out there because I think their prices are inexpensive compared to my local goodwill, sometimes I even feel guilty when I hear my total, I'm just like, "that is it..Wow??", hahah. I picked up a lace bustier and this probably has to be my favorite thrift buy of all time, SERIOUSLY!!! You guys don't even know how long I have been looking for a lace bustier, this one is even better than what I had in mind, I LOVE IT!  My mom and I went on a discount day (50% off everything)  so I basically got the bustier for ONLY $2.50...some call it luck, I call it destiny, Heehee!
I went crazy on the skirts, I plan on cutting them and hemming the bottom to make it shorter as I have done with other skirts from the thrift store. When I got home, I realized that most of  what I bought had some kind of floral print on it, (*tisk tisk*I am a floral junkie, I know!) I am now off to designing more shorts to sell, it's such a great therapy for me. I hope all is well with everyone.

My Senior Prom 2011+ 2012 Prom pictures of Friends

Prom 2011

Prom 2012

   Hi Guys! Exams are over and summer break has started for me! WOO-HOO! I have been working a lot on my online store with the help of others with putting things together. I actually tried doing some tie dye shorts and they came out BEAUTIFUL! I can't to show you guys it when the store opens!!!
    Prom season has arrived and I can't help but get excited when I see people in their prom dresses all dolled up. I follow a couple of blogs that had there prom and everyone one looked so gorgeous.  I am in college now, so no proms for me but I couldn't help but share with you guys what I wore to my prom last year and a few other picture of what my friends wore to their prom this year.Til this day, I absolutely love my  prom dress, it was quite pricey ($480) but well worth it because it was so different and unique. A lot of people thought I had it specialty made but I got it at a boutique down town. I was the only one that wore emerald green to prom. I remember for my senior prom, I wanted to do everything different from everyone else. My corsage had green feathers in them and I made the green feather hair piece.
      I will be selling the dress because it is just gathering dust sitting in my closet. I want some else to put it to great use and wear it for their prom or a special occasion. I hope you guys enjoy the pictures, because I sure did (photo credit to Kim Worthy).

"Vas Happenin"

May 16, 2012

My cousin made and painted this sculpture for me ages ago, I hang it on my room wall. I love how the colors compliment each other.
       "VAS HAPPENIN" guys (in my best Pakistani accent)! I can't stop saying "vas happenin", ahaha! I blame ZAYN Malik, it's too cathcy, heehee! Anywho, this is what I wore today. I recently got the dress from T.J. Maxx, GOSH, I love the mustard color, you know I love a clothing item when instead of changing when I get home from my day,I keep it on a for no reason, hahah! Their are too many outfits I can put together with this dress, maybe I should do a "Different ways to wear post."..hmmm. I took two of my finals today which means one more remaining :) I can't wait! I have a DIY project in mind, I think I will test it out this weekend, I will def share it with you guys if it is a success or fail.

Everyday is Mother's Day

May 14, 2012

Hiiiii guys! This is what I wore for Mother's day yesterday. My mom and I are wearing the same heels we got from ROSS awhile back. Today I had a final which went SUPER well, just three more to go within the upcoming days...I can't wait. Good luck to those who are taking finals too.
 SUPER SUPER short post today, I got to get back to studying, BYE my loves!

DIY Shorts
Finals start Monday! GOSH, I can't wait for it to come and go like an unwanted snow storm. This weekend will entail some serious studying but I do plan on posting a few pictures on Sunday for Mother's Day! My mom and I are going to have a little mini photo shoot, heehee (she's so cute). 

This is what I wore today! I made these shorts a few days ago, and I just felt like wearing them today since the weather was quite beautiful. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to wear my shades around campus because I am blind as a bat and me walking around with no glasses just equals DANGER, hahah! Anywho, let me get back to studying, it is now 12:29 in the morning and the only thing keeping me awake is my goal of acing  all my finals (SIGN).... Bye my Lovelies!!!! <3

 Hey guys!!! Happy Monday, my last week of college is this week then finals start next week. All I have to say to that is "Bring it On." I am so ready to be done with this semester and finally work on other things, like planing a trip to New York with friends and getting my online store together! I plan on taking one summer class this year to stay ahead, I don't mind because it is only one class, compare that to the five classes I had to jungle this semester.
     Now on to what I wore today, I recently purchased this dress from ROSS for only $7.99, I love that store so much, I would really love to work there (even though most, if not all, of my pay check would go there). Polka dots are an ever reoccurring fashion trend that always seems to makes its way back from time to time, I just can't get enough of them. "I need more colors please".
   I'm now off to do TONS of homework and studying, Ugh, I'd rather be blogging! *tear tear*

       I hit 100+ subscribers, WOO-HOO!!!  :D You guys are truly awesome, Thank you so much! The smile that comes to my face every time I see a comment  is priceless.

Hello Hello guys! This is what I wore today, minus the heels, I instead wore my brown chelsea boots to college. My book bag seems to get heavier and heavier each day as final are in two weeks. I don't think TRYING to walk in heels and carrying that HUGE thing would have worked. My top and skirt are both thrifted and I believe both of them combined are  no more than 8 dollars..SCORE! I love thrifting, I haven't been so lucky lately though.
 It rained alittle today and just stayed cloudy all through out the day, I didn't mind  because the weather reminded me of lovely winter. Apparently it's suppose to be spring, but the weather in Maryland shows otherwise. I 've learned so much from taking Enviromental Science this semester, CLIMATE CHANGE IS HAPPENING PEOPLE,  and it's impacted by human activity!!!
Anywho, yesterday I spent the day dying, fraying and studding shorts that I plan on selling. I can't wait to show you guys a sneak peek (next post. PROMISE!) I'm off to do my statistics homework, and finish my English paper!
