Wilmington, Delaware

Today reached a nice sunny warm/cool day of 70. I wanted to wear my new floral maxi skirt along with the new feather necklace I got from F21. I am a huge fan of feathers right now! Feather necklaces, earrings, headbands, anything!

My older brother’s wedding is in a week so we’ve been spending the past two days with him while his single life dwindles to a close stop. These past couple days that we’ve spent here in Delaware has been a great blessing. I am so happy I grew up in a family that puts family before everything except God. I love how family oriented we are; I know some families don’t get that and I’m happy I do.Β 

The Lost Get Found

Yay for color. Colors make me so happy. I don’t remember where I bought this dress, but the necklace is from Forever 21 and the pumps from Manic Shoes at Great Lakes Crossing (which I don’t think they have anymore 😦 They were only $10!) Ugh, dresses make me so happy, too. I would wear one everyday.Β 

I went to church today and the message was great: Love is action. Amen. So then I came back home ate a late lunch then did…nothing. Crappers I had a lot to do. Hence why it’s 11PM and I’m now just doing homework and I still have to choreo for class tomorrow :/. Boo. It will be a late night. But thank God for these four-day weekends. I was also sick the past two days but now I’m 98% better! Praise God!

I am OBSESSED with Britt Nicole’s CD, “The Lost Get Found.” I absolutely love her first CD and once I heard she was coming out with her second, I wanted it right away. But that was all the way back in 2009! So I finally got it. Finally. It’s such a beautiful CD. Apart from Nichole Nordeman, this girl is definitely my other favorite Christian artist. Her songs are so encouraging and I love her British accent. She’s like the Christian version of Jessie J, but she’d rather not do it like a dude. Heh heh.

Tomorrow shall be a full day. I am determined to finish almost everything. Dance class from 11-12 then sewing a Gothic headdress, my model’s skirt, and finish my illustrations. Can’t forget about MARA CLARA either! Yet another week of the MC πŸ™‚Β 

Speaking of, one more week until March. That means one more month until BRUNO MARS and only two more months to go until MICHIGAN. Ah!

Embrace the Lace

I feel like it’s been so long. It HAS been so long. I’m always swamped with stuff at least two weeks before midterms/finals. I also get a little sick during this time too hence my itchy throat and stuffy nose :/ Anywhoo…

Today was another Fashion Thursday at SoFA and the theme was Lacey Daisy. I love lace. It’s one of my favorite textiles just because it’s so intricately pretty and feminine so I had to participate in this one. I felt kind of in the Victorian royal-ish era though because the lace reminded me of brocade, the cross necklace, and people said my headband looked like a tiara. Heh heh. …

Headband- Forever 21

Necklace- Quiapo

Belt- Salvation Army

Yet another weekend and more projects to finish ahead of me. Hope to post soon!

Home Haul :D

I finally got my balikbayan box today! I was napping until my Lola knocked on my door and told me the guards called and my package here! I got so excited because this box was supposed to come in December. Oh well, I’m just glad it arrived and didn’t get lost!Β 

Creative protective packaging, mom! Hahaha.

End result.

My babies! Don’t worry other ones, I’ll be coming back for you guys soon!

So my mom told me that she found these and asked me if I would wear them. Yes! I finally own my own pair!

Found these wrapped…I guess I’ll be tapping again soon!

NUTTY BARS

Yeah, this made it.

8 packs of make-up remover wipes and other beauty products.Β 

My seam book, look book, and old mags.Β 

Sewing kit, clothes, and my KONAD NAIL KIT! AH! So excited to do my nails!

These were surprises from my mom πŸ™‚Β 

New make up! And my Nyx eyeshadow base I forgot at home. Loveeeeeeee. I wish they had Nyx here. 😦

I finally have my own 99 Ways t-shirt book!

Lace tights and cute socks by Betsey Johnson!!! My favorite designer! And knee high socks from Forever 21. My mom knows me so well.Β 

And finally a cute mug…

With the sweetest note inside. My number one fan.

Once I opened it I smelled it so I could get a sense of home again…but it doesn’t smell like home anymore. It just smells like- the world. It definitely made me more excited for May. The thrill and excitement of opening the box and seeing things from my room- what more when I’m actually home! I must say my mom is an amazing packer. I can’t believe all this stuff was in that one box! But I’m glad everything made it and I love ALL the surprise gifts (BETSEY JOHNSON!). Β Thank you for taking the time to send all this to me Mom and Dad! I love you!!!

So there’s this Bruno Mars concert here on April 8th…
