I've been known to carry a lot of clutter in my wallet, and I mean old receipts, chapstick, necklaces and other random stuff, so I like having a big wristlet type wallet with a lot of space. So, apparently I carry a little too much for even something that's as thick as a descent length novel. It all started when I got this cute double zippered nude wallet from Charlotte Russe that worked so well for me until both zippers broke. I do like a lot of their stuff, but c'mon, if I'm paying more than $10 for a wallet, it needs to last better. Even one of my friends, who had the same wallet as me, had the same experience of the zippers jamming and breaking. I left the wallet as is but after a while I got paranoid that I might lose something very important so I bought a new wallet, but of course I didn't just want to throw away a cute $12 wallet. Sorry, that's my cheap-self reasoning; so I decided to do a DIY choker out of the wristlet strap because it just so happened to fit the circumference of neck. Also currently using the storage/zippered part of the wallet to hold letters and random stuff on my desk. So without further ado, the DIY choker out of a wristlet.
Hey Lovely people! These are some of my favorite empty beauty/hygiene products from the past Fall and Winter months. I'm also including somethings that I started using at the beginning of Fall that have become some of my all-time favorite beauty products ever! I know that’s big of me to say but, I mean it, these are amazing and they just work well for me. And a lot of these are drug store products, so you know my “broke college girl on a budget” self is here for y’all!
Recently, I got to attend the Vevo Certified Live concert featuring the band 5 Seconds of Summer. I remember when first heard their song She Looks So Perfect over a year ago and loved it. Now I got to see them in person!
It was a really exciting experience that I got to share with my best friend, who's also a fan. She was pretty much the official unofficial photographer for the evening because I left my camera in the car the whole time. Nonetheless, the band's set was great, I got some free concert swag, and some minor hearing loss but it's all good.
I enjoy using makeup. There's a certain confidence and artistic factor that I find so appealing in it. Even with the many beauty gurus I watch on YouTube, I don't believe I'm all that good at doing makeup just yet. At least not on other people.
As much as I enjoy having pictures taken of the outfits I come up with, I also enjoy taking pictures of other people and places. There are many beautiful places to visit in California and I've gotten some great shots of them from all over LA. This past weekend I attended two weddings and visited a botanical garden. The first wedding I visited was in Long Beach and the other in San Diego. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to take many shots from the weddings but I have a lot of photos from my visit to the botanical garden.
It was a very relaxing walk through the garden and tour of a campus with just me and my camera. These are some of the pictures that came out of the visit. Enjoy !
I feel most productive when I'm out and about from my home headquarters. Whether I'm studying like crazy for finals, working on my blogs, or planning for a project; Starbucks is my go to spot to get work done. Maybe it has something to do with the chill environment, the food, or the fact that others around me are getting stuff done too. I generally find myself coming here often.
This week has been crazy busy but I'm so happy it's almost the weekend! One of the highlights of this week though, was picking up this adorable cake.
I'm all for having fun and going on grand adventures but my life doesn't always work that way. That's why I also love doing simple things like having a movie marathon night with my sister, or walking to my local library to pick out a good read, or even just trying to make something different for dinner.
I'm just over here wondering who I should share these "Life Giving Lemon Cupcakes" with? Maybe you?:)
Hello, my name is Nicole.
