Be Inspired, Be Motivated!

Hello loves,
         I haven't posted a new blog, but i thought i'll post something not related to anything I usually blog about lol, probably boring but take a read if you want! :)

 Basically a class i've been taking Sociology of popular culture, my teacher assigned this memoir by Alice Bag " Violence Girl" about a chicana girl living in East LA discovering herself in the punk scene. I just finished the book and i thoroughly enjoyed reading it. The book is structured a bit weird, very short chapters and tends to jump around, but she describes every scene very well you can see what she was experiencing at that moment. I love all the details she shares with her readers about "Discovering" herself. I usually don't read that much, but i'm glad i was forced to read this haha. Here's one quote i really liked...

“Healthy relationships are reciprocal and thrive on mutual encouragement, but there is a point at which people sometimes get lost in the vicarious thrill that they get from other people’s accomplishments and forgot to chase their own dreams"...

Here's a cover of the book.. very feirce!Something to take away from this is to not give a f*** and be yourself lol :)

Friday Faves!

Hello Loves, 
           Happy Friday! So this whole week is my spring break and i'm really enjoying it because i don't have to do any homework... well I have to now since school starts on Monday! :( I wish it was longer or at least two weeks. Anyways, I think I'm going to start a "Friday Favorites" which Lauren Conrad does on her site.. inspired by her lol, I know a lot other bloggers do similar type of posts. So I want to do them as well :). I love using Polyvore to organize all these items together... Way better than uploading individual pictures I find on the internet. Takes tooo long! 

This whole set of items are basically a bunch of bags + accesories. I know most of them are super expensive, but hey a girl can dream? haha mentally added to my shopping cart. But really I've been obsessing over bucket bags, I don't think I own any, so i would like to get a cheaper version of one of these. I'm especially loving the two Rachel Zoe bags! the two at the bottom. 

Hope yall are having a wonderful Friday! Enjoy the weekend to come.

Let's Get High-Waisted!

Hello Loves,
          So lately i've been looking/wanting a great pair of high-waisted shorts! Denim studded in particular. I do have a couple, but i wan't some more different styles. Plus i like wearing crop tops, so it would look perfect... besides i don't really like exposing my stomach lol.. high-waisted anything would be happy in my closet :)

I'm trying this whole Polyvore thing out. I've always notice other people use it, i had no idea what it was...Now that I know i'm having fun putting stuff together..I like that you can add whatever item you want and create collections. Here's one I made.

Do you guys like high-waisted bottoms?

Elie Saab Collection Fall 2012

Hello Loves,
I just saw the runway pictures of the Elie Saab fall ready- to-wear collection on ELLE. And i love it! The collection has a lot of dark black and grey colors for the daytime looks and the evening and cocktail wear incorporates greens, golden bronze, and metallic colors.   All of the pieces were lovely and the dresses are gorgeous. Definitely ready to wear cause i can see myself wearing a lot of these! :)

Here's a link to see the rest of them: Elie Saab Fall 2012 

What do you guys think of of this collection? And are there any other designer's collection you like?

Aritzia. Forever 21. H&M Haul

Hey Loves,
So I Recently bought some cute tops at Aritzia and Forever 21! Nothing is better than shopping right after class lol. I haven't been shopping at Aritzia for a while and I really adore their clothes, but its very expensive! I was able to get two shirts for their "Snooze you lose" sale. Also, I got these two pretty simple tops from F21 and a cute little bracelet at H&M! :)

I love their shopping bags!
cute wrapping

 Have a Happy Sunday!
