My sister and I are traveling to China! The trip's going to take a dreadful long time, which is actually good for me because I freaking love traveling; the airports, the rush, the people, the planes, EVERYTHING.

However, this does mean that posts will be as spare as can be... 
So I leave you with this tentative "See you Later!"

Oh, and these beautiful pictures that fill my Inspiration file.

Currently Reading...

...A Clash of Kings! Book 2 in The Song of Fire & Ice series.

HBO's Game of Thrones is currently on its second season. 
Not all the episodes have aired, and since I'm emotionally invested and connected to the characters I wanted to know what would happen before the season ended. 
The book series and tv show are thoroughly entertaining addicting! 
*If you click the book, it'll take you to where you may choose to read an excerpt from the book or purchase it!

Other than the Salvation Army, the only other thrift store here is Rockstar & Rogers, who actually buy your old stuff.

It was a bit disappointing at first to hear that my sister and I's old clothes sold for store credit... HOWEVERR, it turned out to be a blessing in disguise!

Authentic Dooney & Bourke shoulder bag. AUTHENTIC, DOONEY & BOURKE. Never, EVER thought this sort of thing could happen to me! The superb condition it's in is a mayj plus to its shape, which I'm just in love with.

Oh and have I mentioned the D&B wallet? THE D&B WALLET? I'm going to have a lot of moolah to stuff this baby, since both items were so cheap/bought with store credit/FREE! 

Wiped down with anti-bacterial wipes and cleaned out thoroughly by moi.
They're my babies, which would explain why I took so many pictures, which would also explain why you just must read on... !

Motivational Monday

Whether it be work, exercise, or life, let us be motivated to


Saturday, May 12, 2012


So the post title's not entirely true, I stood for a good two-hours while volunteering and hunted around the mall to find exactly what I wanted to gift my mum, but..

I've pretty much sat all day Saturday.

I'm CONVINCED that this 54¢ bracelet's handmade w/ copper, if you held it you would too! And I managed to catch a glimpse of the most beautiful, French-style silver-plated candelabra that a friend bought; 'twas a thrift score day!

Planning on running later so Olive Garden won't kill me.
But for now.. Snapple Peach Tea and mini pizza style crackers fo' snack; nomnom.

Lace Mania

Just last week I suffered through Ruffles Mania, and I have almost fully recovered (total lie)when BAM.
Lace hits me again.

Lace has ALWAYS been an immense inspiration and love for me, especially since I'm Detail's biggest advocate.

Soo Lace and I are pretty much soul-mates.

Take a gander at this wonderfully intricate material that not only shall grace my wedding dress, in the faaarrr future, but is a mustmustmust/needneedneed!

(And as usual, Read More--'cuz there are always just too many pictures)

*Also, fabu DIY Lace Shorts here*

Currently Reading

After watching Season 1 of GAME OF THRONES, I decided that I wanted to read the fantasy series.

So far the tv show is a great adaptation of the book.
This book is entertaining and indulges the geek in me!
