hey girl, whats in your purse

i am the worst when it comes to random things in my purse. i seem to store everything in there..from random pieces of jewelry to business cards. Who knows what may lie in there..haha.

I decided to post a picture of my favorite purse and what lies in it. I left the little things in there..such as the random change,cards, and nose rings.

This is my favorite Kathy Von Zeelend purse. I just love the colors, the fabric and the hardware that makes up this gorgeous bag. My mother got it for me last year on my birthday. I adore it! Its perfect for the spring and summer. Now what lies in my purse..

1)Wallet; I really like this wallet. Its just a cheap wallet that my bf got me for Xmas but its so cute. I like the floral design a lot and the texture. Its also stuffed with receipts
2) 100 Calorie Snack; I am obsessed with snacks and I always eat them constantly.
3) Fantasy by Britney Spears Lotion; Sexy Little Things Body Spray by Victoria's Secret
4) Makeup; Pink Wink Lipstick, SPF 15 Chapstick, Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer, Lip gloss from my mama, and Lash Blast Mascara
5)Iphone and headphones. Cannot survive with out my phone or music (RIP Stolen Ipod)
6) Misc; keys, favorite pen, forever 21 bracelet, and boyfriend's sunglasses

rainy days and friendship

Image and video hosting by TinyPic{lovethismovie}

its a gross, soggy day in wilmington. it doesn't help that i am still a bit under the weather. so you might be seeing two blog posts today. i can finally sew again! it doesn't hurt my arm as much as it did the past week. i am working on finishing a few of them a really pretty summer/pastel dress for my etsy shop. you should see it soon. I am also done with the give away. I just need to get my bf to upload the pictures on his laptop for me. I have decided that either every two weeks there will be a new giveaway or like once a month. I am not too sure yet. I am hoping you all will like the giveaway, i spent an afternoon working on it. There will be a post on it later..promise :].

Friend Quote Pictures, Images and Photos

I have a wonderful friend/sisterwho did a Spotlight piece about me on her blog. You all should check it out and follow her. She is planning on having giveaways often soon. She is rather lovely as well. If anything check out the post. It made me smile and tear up a bit. It is also my first spotlight post! Very exciting. Here is an excerpt of what she said about me:
"Our perfect lives of Victorian houses, small towns, adventures around Dover somehow became overshadowed by college, relationships, and her big move to North Carolina. Without getting into much detail, Jasmine was the girl that other girls hated and boys loved until she lost her New England identity of a beauty queen with her move to the South. The former Miss Teen New Hampshire candidate went to North Carolina with the intention to live her life in the most genuine way possible. "
I cannot believe how sweet she is :] and I am really grateful that she is my friend.

today is supposed to be the day where i talk about a song that makes me cry or nearly. a song that makes me cry is Nineteen by Tegan and Sara It has a lot of meaning to me and it basically fits the summer i was nineteen. Down to the little details haha.

i love this version of the song can feel the emotion as she is singing.

last but not least. a dress and a pair of shoes i am lovinggg. i want haha!
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
i love the cut outs. i think it'd be cute with tights and wedges

i love these shoes! i want them so bad.good thing my birthday is only a a monthish away ;]

i never usually take pictures of myself anymore..back in highschool i was a camera whore. i admit i take a lot of webcam photos but thats usually with michael or when i am really bored. this picture is kinda cute/blurry. we had fun that day, it was quite lovely out as well.

i absolutely love the colors for this spring. soft blush pink, creams, nudes. plus the fabric is gorgeous, light weight, lots of denim, and lace. ahh this spring is lovely! speaking of lovely i made a gorgeous skirt tonight and will have to take pictures tomorrow. i absolutely adore so many things i find online that i have a click save obsession.

these are a few of my favorite spring inspired things..
Image and video hosting by TinyPic the colors, low cut backs, and bows. gorgeous.
Image and video hosting by TinyPic i adore this dress! i love the ruffle detailing too. plus the fact that i am on a blue kick is also a help :]

lastly, there is a blog i adore a lot. ( Vivaverita's blog is quite wonderful and inspirational. You should definitely check out her blog and her etsy shop ( She has the most adorable dresses ever! I am dying to get one as soon as i get the money to (hint hint for my birthday ;]). Anyways, her designs and clothing are wonderful. She is really sweet too! So definitely give her blog a peek.

Two of her amazing, gorgeous dresses I am drooooling for. Everything is well priced in her shp too..specially since it is handmade. She has a good taste for color too! :] I can imagine wearing this dress to a tea party or getting drinks this summer.

new bunny

Day 8: This photo makes me sad because of the story i read about this photograph. this woman's fiance was in the military and sadly died over in the middle east. she would like to lay on his grave and just think or even talk to him. i cannot imagine losing my fiance in anyway. i could not even begin to understand the pain she is in. whoever she is or where ever she is i hope things will get better for her soon. i saw this picture sometime last spring/summer and immediately knew this picture was a powerful thing and it made me tear up when i saw it. i have a lot of respect for people in the military as well. anyway's this picture is for day #8
Image and video hosting by TinyPic

so today i got a new baby bunny for Michael. He needed a pick me up and I wasn't sure what. My sister and I decided to go to the pet store after we had lunch. Thats when I met the cutest lop eared baby rabbit ever. I knew she was perfect to cheer up michael. We decided to name her Willow and Chai as her middle name ( yes all of our animals have middles names :p) Anyways here is a picture of her with my sister..

she is so tiny and cute! also so cuddly as you can see below. we were snuggling up on my bed earlier :]

tomorrow is my interview at forever, i hope it goes well! wish me luck ;]. on a happy note giveaway pictures tomorrowish? I am still working on it :]!!

I had to go to the doctor today because I have some weird infection thats causing my glands to swell under my arm pit. it hurts so bad and the pain spreads up my arm. its horrible gah, i am hoping it goes away.

oh summer time

Day 5: My favorite quotes are from Peter Pan and Garden Stat.

Peter Pan is one of my favorite things in the whole world and I plan on getting this quote tattooed on me eventually.
"To die would be an awfully big adventure." I've loved Peter since I as a kid, and read most books that are parodies or spin offs of it. I love the original book and all the movies. I just adore Peter Pan. Haha I have a crush on a fictional character!
Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Also my other favorite quote from Garden State. "When I'm with you I feel so safe, Like I'm home." Like I sad in the past..home has a huge meaning for me in so many ways. I've always loved this quote and movie as well. I have a huge crush on Zach Braff.

Outfit from threeish days ago? It was reallllly hot out that day (89!!) I couldn't find something suitable and light enough to wear either. That is when this outfit came in play. Don't mind the horrible faces. My boyfriend seems to catch me at horrible moments. My hair is even worst. Humidity has made it into a poofy wavy mess. Plus the sunglasses are huge I know. I just can't go out in the sunlight with sunglasses. My eyes will burn out. Yeah, I'm weird.

plaid tunic/dress- forever 21
grey slip- forever 21
belt- vintage found at goodwill (only a $1!)
sandals- i think forever 21?
headband- forever 21
earrings- wet seal
purse- christmas present. its a great purse too! :]

plus me and my adorable copartner and bf:

Oh i know everything is from forever 21. i usually am not decked out completely in their things. but i think that outfit brough good luck because i applied there and got a call 10 mins later for an interview! :]

number three and four

Since I missed number three yesterday ( i was busy working on this gorgeous dress!) I will do that one today along with number four.

Favorite Television Show: My all time two favorites are South Park and Desperate Housewives. I am also loving Vampire Diaries lately (on tonight!). I used to thing it was a ripoff of twilight but lately I've been getting into it. I actually have a block of my favorite tv shows lined up every week. I like to watch them as I sew.

inspiration and number two

i've gotten a lot of questions about whoare my style icons. the first people that pop in to my mind are audrey hepburn, zooey, & jenny lewis. i love al three of their styles! i also get style inspiration in pieces that just draw me in. i love florals, zippers, and knee socks lately. i am also really into neutral and soft pink colors. i one day hope to be a style icon. i love fashion too much!Image and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPic

i plan on making a lot of cute things this week because...i quit my baking job! i was getting drained with the hours, had no time to enjoy life or sewing (which is torture) and never got to cuddle up at night in bed with my cute boyfriend. so heres a hint at the new things i am going to create: open back dress with unique shape cut, light weight airy beaded dress (maybe beads), zipper double layer skirt. lots and lots of fun things!

onward to number two (riley i hope you don't mind i stole this!)
my favorite movie of all time is:gah i can't pick just one! its star wars vs garden state vs edward scissor hands vs eternal and etc. but i'll tell my two most favorite recents.

Adam; so sweet, and heart touching (not corny i swear, just the words i chose are) the story is really cute, and it has a good plot line.

500 Days of Summer; I am fascinated and have a huge girl crush on Zooey. She is too damn cute. I like how the movie unfolds and ends. I also love the smiths touch, and her outfits were very inspiring. 500 days of summer Pictures, Images and Photos
