Practice makes perfect!

I have been obsessed with the galaxy trend. Finally, today I tried something I always wanted to do. I blogged a couple of months ago about the galaxy nail design and I couldn't find a way how or even a creative moment until today. So long story short, my nails have been plain for the past 2 weeks or so and I was really bored of it and here is what I came up with.

I know it may not look exactly like a "galaxy" but it was a very good try for my first time. Now, I didnt think to make a step by step show and tell because it was on a whim and I didn't even know how it was going to turn out but I will describe which nail polishes I used first and so forth. Here are the polishes in order from left to right.

I feel like shopping!

Every time I look online and see something nice that I want to get, I always go to the store and find something completely different. I feel terrible when I get home and realize what I should have bought instead. By that time, I don't want to return the items I just purchased but I also don't want to go back and buy more. So, I've decided to make a collage of exactly what I want to get so I don't forget.

What's the catch?

This week I've been eating and drinking for free, not everyday but still not bad. I ate at Chick-fil-A last week and my receipt had a survey for a FREE chicken sandwich. I ate that for lunch last Wednesday and so it be that 7-Eleven had FREE slurpees for it's 85th birthday that same day. I had a free lunch and free "desert".

Feeling edgy!

I went to the Grapevine Mills Mall last weekend to finish paying off a watch that my dad wanted for Fathers Day and I ended up walking out with a chiffon skull blouse from A'Gaci. I've seen these before online and on other bloggers but I've avoided buying it online. I just hate the online taxes, shipping and handling deal plus if it doesn't fit or it's not what you expected you have to deal with the returns. The item always comes out more that what I want to pay for it so I just look until it gets on sale or I just evade it all together. When I first walked in everything looked gorgeous and I wanted to go on a shopping spree but I had to hold back. As I saw this ONE skull blouse way off to the side like someone put it back on the wrong spot, I immediately grabbed it and paid for it. Now all I need is to shop around for a high waisted distressed short to dip dye.

My favorite fashion and beauty blogger has matched it perfectly in an outfit. You can find the post HERE from DulceCandy.

Better late than never!

Hello my friends. I've been gone with no reason whatsoever. My brain has nothing to react to these days. I've been wanting to post something on here but I didn't know what would be interesting. I didn't want to post pics and say "look at these". I'll just pick my birthday and we'll take it from there.

I'll start with my birthday last week (it was on the 22nd, btw). Starbucks gives you a free drink on your birthday when you sign up and register a gift card. I took the coupon they mailed me and used it on a Trenta iced coffee with milk and caramel syrup. Caramel macciatos don't fit in their espresso machines so I had to improvise. Later that day, I went to the movies and saw Journey 2 with an old friend. That movie was ok but it wasn't what I usually look for. It was fun nonetheless. When I got home, I was surprised with a lovely small cake, flowers and gift cards for Starbucks. As you may have realized from THIS previous post, I am always up for a new drink.

My entire life has known nothing but long square acrylic beautiful nails and the vast and endless designs and colors you can do with them. I've never even considered the long and pointy nails that I usually relate to witches and demons. Since the upcoming of Lady Gaga and her wild trends, I've started noticing these long "stiletto" nails more and more. I used to say "those nails are for witches and I can't believe anybody would ever wear them. I would NEVER even consider those hideous things." Well, there's a reason why people say "NEVER say never". I will however, not wear them as pointy and as long but I will have a shorter gel version and more round like an almond shape. They just simply look feminine and edgy at the same time and of course, more natural if they are gel based.

Sunday Funday!

From now on, I think I'm going to name my outfits Sunday Funday. Sunday seems to be the only day where I can dress up. Monday through Friday are a drag to me since I work almost ALL day long and recently I started working on Saturday's too. I get lazy after work and just hang out in the house without changing into anything special.

This last Saturday I stopped by at The Pearl Cup near my job for a nice relaxing coffee. A friend of mine recommended it to me. She said it's the "best coffee in the DFW" and guess what.... it is. It was the most delicious latte I have ever tasted. I might just never go back to Starbucks. Ha ha, j/k. That green mermaid will always hold a special place in my wallet. Anyways, Sunday I went to the mall for an hour or two and bought some tea from Teavana, stopped by Re-Threads (thrift store), tried an iced cold latte from Dunkin' Donuts for the first time and finally exhausted myself out and went home. What about you? Anything interesting?

I don't want it to stop!

My addiction to trying to new coffee or tea is making me nuts. I can't remember how many other coffee's I have tasted. I've yet to go out of my comfort zone from Starbucks and a Vietnamese house style to actually making an effort to drive to a different location. The weather doesn't make it any easier either. The constant change satisfies my needs. Hot or cold, a delicious blend of something new seems to always do the trick. It is amazing to see in pictures what I have drank, with the exceptions of the regular Joe's: Folgers, Maxwell House, Nescafe. Just don't ask me for any reviews because nine times out of ten I would have forgotten what they taste like. I will tell you however, that Vietnamese blends are much stronger than anything I have ever experienced.

Believe it or not, these are all faves of mine. Earl Grey latte (formerly known as London Fog) from Starbucks is usually number one though. Any faves of yours and any suggestions?

Uncle Uber's Sammich Shop!

NBC has a show called Non-Stop Foodies and in one episode I saw Uncle Uber's Sammiches. The name Uncle Uber is just a name. Just a fun place (no REAL uncle and uber for common "super" meaning) to have a bite in Deep Elum. I decided to try this place out for myself. I ordered a Pork Banh Mi (I've seen it spelled BunMi) and a Turkey sammich. The pork banh mi was a little odd for me. It wasn't as great as I was expecting it. The traditional Vietnamese banh mi's are better. Even still, not bad. The turkey sammich was delicious with crispy bacon strips.

One rebel at a time!

Frances Bean Cobain has to my rebel dream. Hedi Slimane photographs Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love's love child. It was shot in a traditional style of black and white where 18 year-old Frances shows off her tattoos and smokes in a rebel photo shoot. They were taken in around summer of last year but I simply can't get tired of looking at her.

Because I want to!

Not much going on today. I went to church earlier, now I'm at home finishing a Starbucks Earl Grey latte. Thinking of watching Jane Eyre again. Also, wondering how I'm going to pay to see Coldplay in concert this June. I am totally and utterly broke. My doctor's sister in law is trying to get me some free tickets. I am crossing my fingers. Hopefully I can say "Chris Marin, here I come". I don't think Gwen will mind right? I'm just a another crazy fan. Just Kidding!

After a little drool moment, I felt like showing two of my outfits from a long time ago that I just never bothered to load. A good friend of mine told me that I needed to take pics so that I could one day look back and see myself for what I once was. Not that one day after I have children I'm gonna let loose and look disgusting but just so that I can feel good about myself now. I need to preserve my beauty (haha) in pictures. By the way, I loath taking pics. You will hardly see me smile but here you go. Enjoy!

Second pic was a dress from Forever 21 that I tried on and did not buy. I was sure if I liked it.

Happy New Year!!

I hope and wish the best for you all in this coming year. May all your wishes and dreams come true. I know I'm looking forward to it.

Here is one thing I'm certainly going to enjoy.... Paul and Joe! I can never get enough of her collections. It's hard for me to get my hands on them but when I do get them, I enjoy it to the fullest (even though sometimes I don't want to touch it because it's so beautiful).
