18 should come with a warning label


Why am I awake right now?

It’s 3 am. The world is fast asleep and my mind wont shut off.

I’d like to think this is the part of me that turned 18 last night, way too mature for sleep.. but of course its a friday night/saturday morning and I have little homework that needs to be accomplished.

Or little homework I have the motivation for accomplishing.

My birthday was wonderful.  Everything I could have hoped for. Cupcakes and glitter filled cards. Pink envelopes and pink laptop/keyboard covers.

My friends and I had a movie marathon. I wore a lace top and purple shorts.

I was happy.

I bought 2 lottery tickets and broke even, winning $2 back. 

I will go to the mall tomorrow, to return a few items. Which will undoubtedly result in buying a few as well.

I am happy.

I am awake.

Yet it’s 3 am.

Being 18 should come with a warning label, life doesn’t make any more sense than it did when you were 17.

Just go with it.

Morning sunshines!

Actually, its 4 in the afternoon.. I’m just so bright and cheery thanks to my adventure today that I had to start my introduction that way.

Why might I be gushing optimism and happiness?

KATE SPADE ❤

I went to the Niagara Falls Outlet Mall today, and was given 4 generous hours to wander and drool over everything I could possibly want.

The result: A sheer blouse with rhinestones on it, a navy jacket for fall, socks for my sperry boat shoes, yogen fruz frozen yogurt, and A NEW KATE SPADE.

My first.

I feel like suchhhhh, a grown up. Even if it’s hot pink, it’s classy and practically costs an arm and a leg vs. my typical bag.

Not to diss vera..

I’m just on cloud 9 right now because this bag is me in a nut shell. From the duster bag that it came in, to the fact that it’s pink yet straight lines and classic design. I just feel it represents me so well.

Since it’s labor day weekend, the sales were HUGE.. and Kate thankfully wasn’t an exception. 50% off!!! My bag was 50% off.

I could never be so impulsive otherwise.

I’m supposed to be the poor college student after all.

Canisius is covered in Michael Kors and Coach; but  I’ll be so proud to flaunt this kate spade. Words can barely describe.

Psst: The title was the quote on my duster bag. Like how much cuter can you get?!

 

Dressing casual when you only own dresses and pearls.


Well. That was the most frustrating event of the day, after finding out my mac mail isn’t compatible with my Canisius email. Yes. You read correctly, I am writing this from my new mac :). Overall, I love it. Obviously. But there has been frustration like the email, that frustration? WordPress wouldn’t let me post blogs. I restarted and its fine, but oh my God. I would probably have returned the computer over being forbid to blog. AH. Anyways, the reason I wanted to blog today was because I’m having a tough time packing. ME. With a phenomenal wardrobe. Why? Because HALF OF IT is packed for the move and college. And because where I’m going August 5-9th isn’t exactly calling for a ball gown or anything tremendously fashion forward. It’s Kingdom Bound. The Christian Rock Music Festival held in Darien Lake, NY. It’s huge. Yet, churchy events at a theme park aren’t exactly calling for decked out attire. And I’m opposed to gym shorts when in public surrounding that many possible cute guys. What is a girl to do? I don’t own in between clothes.. I just know I have a pro-life shirt that would probably go over well at such an event. Speaking of clothes though, I do own a bunch of new stuff. And yes, I bought the Mac so you’re probably like how the hell does that work out? ALLISON YOU HAVE NO JOB. But it does. Because I had a gift card and I am impulsive. Psh, I still have $500 for college.. Like that’s gonna last me 😦 But anyways I bought a ton of jewelry; pearl choker, pearl bracelets, rose quartz bracelets, silver bangles, & gold bangles, 2 scarves, a little black dress for the fall (quarter sleeve length and synchs at the waist), a turquoise and black polka dotted top, and jeans. For sixty dollars. I adore Forever 21 for that reason. The even better thing? The clothing all fits. Believe it or not (LOL) I am not your sample size modelesque girl, so this is kind of an accomplishment in itself. I am in between sizes so it’s tough to order online. What is also hard to order online? Shoes. Riding boots to be specific. I have one foot that is an 8.5 and another thats a 9. Like what the heck is a girl to do? Order boots. Impulsively. Duh. And that’s just what I did. I went online to Steve Madden and I found the most adorable boots for the fall :). And they fit too! I’m sooo excited, that I am going to show you them. YES! I can easily show you guys my purchases now that my laptop has a webcam (welcome to the 21st century I know).

Well, I almost had a heart attack. I’m not used to such an interactive touch pad.. I went back a page and practically lost my post.

I hope this isn’t to technologically advanced a computer for yours truly.
