Near my school there's this small pumpkin patch and I wonder when it opens. I'm kinda freaking out because I have been longing for fall, and pumpkin patches, and whatnot...and hello, having a pumpkin patch near my school is amazing. Then again, it looks closed and may open this weekend?! Grrrr.... I absolutely cannot wait.
I also go gaga over anything and everything fall/pumpkin/Halloween related. No shopping mall or store is safe anymore. My wallet is screaming and crying daily and my camera is loaded with pics. It's my little crazy fall obsession. That's allowed, right?! Besides the awesome smelling PSL I have to go get today. It's gorgeous outside with temps in the mid 70s and I am loving it. Granted, it's not particularly fall weather but to me it is. I always wanted September/early October to be sunny and relatively warm. Not foggy, rainy, and all. So I get what I was hoping for. Finally.

How has everyone's week been so far?
As for my own...I got one exam back and I could not believe my own eyes...I received a big fat A. Yay!! Moreover, my professor told me (and these were his exact words, and if you read my tweets this week you've read that already) 

"I see the intelligence in your eyes"

Hello?! Really?! Are you for real? Then again, thank you professor, you totally made my day and week! 

Oh one more thing before I head back out into the real world...I hope to take some pretty pictures soon so I can share some fun time with y'all. How about that?! Fall in an inspiring time and one that needs to be lived well, with a pink camera in tow of course!

Have a fantastic day.

Have a Pinteresting Day!

Yes, finally I am back on track (or almost) and can participate in Oh, how Pinteresting! I am obsessed with Pinterest and if you are on it you know what I mean by that. If not, you gotta give it a try because whenever I feel down or without inspiration I find comfort there. Sounds incredibly corny I know but that site has some inspirational power sometimes...ha! ;)


Without further are my favorite pins of this past week... :D

Obviously, I am in love with my area and my city! :)

I have to confess something here...

...and I remind myself weekly...I should do it daily I know!!

Have an excellent day everyone!
It's been a very hectic week so far...I am utterly exhausted!

And I lost my voice!
How awful is that?

This is what I need today. All of it. Nothing less, nothing more.

I may have too many nail polishes now...

If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I was going to get me some new nail polishes today at cheaper prices. Most of them are either 50% off regular price or even more than that. I already love the 50% off anything so you can just imagine little me going gaga over OPI and Essie at that location. 
Some of you (thank you) suggested a few colors and I was looking and looking and found out they may actually come in next week or mid-October. The newer colors or more popular ones are not sold there yet (obviously, getting more money for a product is always better!). So I got different colors instead. And since it's pretty much 90 degrees outside I just can't start with fall colors yet. It just doesn't feel right.

So here are my newest additions to the nail polish box...haha!

Some fun white-ish pink...Kiss the Bride by Orly!

and of course my favorite brand

Additionally I bought top coats, nail files, and had a fun girls' (mid) day. We even bought a few colors at $1 which is amazing...not sure if they last or not but hey, who turns down $1 nail polish?! Not me! 

And since it's Friday, it's Friday Funny time!

Keeping Up With Kelly & Co

I decided I am sharing some quite fun and very annoying video with y'all. This is pretty much what you get as far as entertainment goes when you are surrounded by children of all ages. And lately that's the case, besides going to school and reading weird books. NOT that I would ever allow my kid to watch this but oh well...they introduced me to the annoying world...and since I love Wasabi...I just couldn't resist! But I'd ruin that orange...really!

Happy Friday everyone!!

Happy early weekend!

Guys, I found time to blog...can you believe it?
I wanted to participate in two weekly fun posts Leeann and Michelle do Mondays and Wednesdays but nope...I've been too busy studying my butt off with weird books and notes from my humanities class. I had a gigantic test today and I have no idea how I did. I have mixed feelings. I studied well but once that paper with all kinds of questions was facing me I froze again. I wrote and answered that's for sure! But I am not sure if I did it right. At least I wrote something and shared my thoughts on it not like others leaving after 30 minutes and going home. This by the way, freaked me out. Who leaves a test in 30 minutes when you have 90 minutes left to work on a test? At least leave after one hour. So not sure what they did or didn't do. Then again I don't care. :)

So, if I'm not overwhelmed with books on human nature and civilization and sexual drives (yes, I said it!) I try to sit back and relax, either while walking the boys (or do they walk me sometimes?!), watch the News (have to admit my guilty pleasure is the morning news from 7am on), and watch all kinds of TV shows. I need to redirect my passiveness after class and homework towards something else...and just walking to get back into shape alone doesn't do it...I need more. So, I'm thankful for any kind of distraction, TV included. :)

My favorites so far? Besides Hawaii 5-0, Castle, the Vampire Diaries, Modern Family...I found some new addictions. The Ringer is one of them, and hopefully Hart of Dixie too. The latter one had some fun event going on yesterday and you can read a bit about it on Annemarie's blog. I am excited to see it!

But to show you some proof that I am alive and doing well, despite my vague tweets and blog's what I look like when I am happy and playing with dogs, or trying to make them look at the camera! *major fail* And sorry, it's a phone pictures...not the best quality! ;)

Have a good Wednesday!!

September 19, 2011


Sorry, been MIA lately.
Don't know why. Nothing big is happening over here but I know I am just super occupied with school and assignments and it drives me insane. However, I know I am a lot happier now than I was before, and if going back to school and me living in California again does it all to me, I am more than just fine with that.

Hope you still know who I am. Hahaha!!!
I will definitely catch up on everyone and everything....
...let this day just end and I'll be fine.

And yes, I am going to hug a dog now!!! Two to be exact!!! :)

My 7 links

A while back I was thinking "hey, I should take a look at my old (embarrassing) posts and just see how awful I did" and then a few days after that, I was tagged by awesome Erin from Living and Loving in L.A., and I just knew I had to do this post. Granted it took me a while to do this but it was so much fun to go back and read my posts and relive what I shared with you. So, anyways, without further blahblah here's the tag-post I'm going to share with you all.
Thanks Erin!!!

Philly in Pictures
and ironically another one linked to the first
I'm weird, You're weird, We're weird

Why beautiful? Philly is beautiful! By just going through these posts made me miss the East Coast a little more. I had the best time with friends and family and I just fell in love with Philadelphia. Never thought I would, but I did and I cannot wait to go back there soon!!

Most popular

Oh Pinterest...

For some reason my participation that week was greatly appreciated...haha.
I am also very much in love with this picture!

Most controversial

Happy Friday

I chose this post to be the most controversial because again, I bet you we have forgotten most of this. I could go on here and lecture you and me about how fast time goes and easily we forget and how very superficial we all can be, and even are. But I won't. I won't tell you that. It's not the place nor the time to do so, and I believe deep within we know this. Do we accept our ignorance? Maybe. We shall never know.

Most helpful

As much as I didn't want to share this again I simply had to. It felt good writing about it, and it still feels good today. It helped a ton and I am grateful for this blogger community, and its support and understanding.

J. is missed daily.
It's funny, one thing I missed on my birthday was that she didn't say "Happy Birthday", and now she'd be proud of me knowing I am back to a place I missed and loved so much. She certainly would be proud. J. you know you are missed. But I know you're having a good time, and that you're watching over us. I know you are. I see and feel it every day.

Post whose success surprised you

Love and other things

Can't say it's a successful post but I loved the pictures I chose, and I love the fact that I could be honest and write it all out. And I was surprised that I actually had time to focus on love...even just for a little or that week and month in general. 

Post you feel didn't get the attention it deserved

Green is the new black!

Over the past few months I learned more about recycling and reusing and I still love it. I am also trying to teach my friends how to do it better. They throw away all kinds of recyclable items it breaks my heart. Where I live we have a trash room and in that trash room we have two slots. One for rubbish (literally says rubbish) and the other one is for recycling. There's this neat sign above it explaining what goes in there, and trust me, all those items there are usually thrown into the regular trash bag at home so I always see that and yes, I always take it out and separate it. Granted, it's not the most classy move, but hey, I gotta do what I gotta do and I am teaching my roommates to do the same. Water and milk bottles, shampoo bottles, hand soap, and even the Nutella jar/bottle thing are all recyclable. Add the Ketchup bottle, too, and all kinds of other things and you awesome. :) Just look at it. If it's plastic, or carton, or even paper or glass it is going into the recycling slot, if not it may as well belong into the rubbish slot. Easy as that.
And for those that get money out of all the recyclable know what I'm talking about. If not, you have to go back to recycling 101 and learn about the triangle and its number indicating what the plastic stands for. ;) Hehe.

Post that you are most proud of

 Fashion. Coming from me? No Way!

This post comes very close to the most popular. In fact my stats were out of control. However, I chose this to be the post I am most proud of. Not because it's fashion, and not because it hit so many clicks, but because I was writing about my friend and her passion. I am immensely proud of her and her accomplishments. Very proud!!!

So, I am done for today! Yay!!! Hope you enjoyed my little links for today.
I decided to do this fun post today instead of my regular rants or inspirations. I am not a fan of tagging people and answering questions but we gotta do this sometimes, don't we?! 

Speaking of which...I am somehow tempted to do a Q&A thing and I am not sure if I should. What do you think?!

And here are five bloggers I nominate for this fun tag post:

Sierra @ Ocean Dreams
Amy @ Crazy Random Happenstances
Sam @ A Careless Man's Careful Daughter
Ashely @ She's Come Undone
Christianna @ The Girl With The Blue Bow
Leeann @ Join the Gossip

Happy Fall!

September 15th, literally marks the beginning of fall for me. Normally I'd say it's September 1st, but I changed it to 15th. Mid-September feels closer to October and November. So yes,


Do I sound excited? I better.
I love this season. I just wished there was real fall weather here in California. Although I have to admit, winter here feels more like fall to me or what fall should be or how I always wanted fall to be. Whatever, I'm sure you get my point. I love the colorful leaves, the cooler breeze, the sweater season!
And of course, duh, Halloween!

What's your favorite thing of fall season?!

For me it's mainly the warm days with a light cooler breeze, and the sun still warming your skin when you sit outside. The fact that you're wearing a sweater and sipping on a warm drink but not start sweating because what you wear and drink works perfectly together is one amazing feeling.

And what I'm looking forward to is Pumpkin Patches!
They don't really exist in Europe, so finally having moved back here I am counting down to go to one. Just one. Please?!

Now the question which one?!

Anyone know "the" best in the Los Angeles area?! I'm leaning towards two.
Just want to know your input if you got one. Thanks in advance.

I am clearly excited!!
And it's only mid-September. What is October going to be like?!

Oh boy!

I have one more day to turn in my paper!!! 

I am not behind but I just don't seem to understand the teacher and her ways of teaching and what she truly wants us to do. Luckily, I am not alone and my friend takes the same class and for some reason she's in the same dilemma. Either way, I wish I could be this little girl for the rest of this week...feeling overwhelmed with what to do with all those flowers and not to have worry about money, grades, the future, and what not. 

Only good and amazing thing of today? 

It is hot again...maybe not as hot but hot enough for me to sit at the pool and read a little if I feel I need a time-out from a weird English paper!!!

Hope you have better plans for today!
Even if you work today, I'd take that over my studying. 

Happy Tuesday.

Man Candy Monday!

Happy Monday everyone!
I have a long day ahead of me...three classes, and I will end up home by around 9.30pm. Not something I look forward to. However, I made this decision and I'm going to live with this decision and make the best out of this. Wish me luck!!!

But this post would not be if I didn't link up with Leeann and her fun Man Candy Monday series. I certainly need it today and most probably every other Monday until I am done with Humanities, English, and Math (triple yuck! - it was my choice so I'm blaming it entirely on me and you are more than welcome to do the same). 

So, in order to make me happy (and hopefully you, too) here's my Man Candy for today (or this week).

Happy Monday everyone!
I am smiling.
Oh and don't forget to link up with Leeann!!!

I have to admit I am not entirely happy it is Friday. Yes, there I said it. I chose today to work on my English paper and it seems to go nowhere. I have no idea how to start that crappy thing, and it is due next week. Not the entire paper but just the beginning of it but if the beginning fails to even stimulate my teacher's approval somewhere down the line I will fail later on. least it's not math!!

Anyhow, since pretty much Tuesday I've been working on getting better. Yes, I have been sick. Not sure why but yes, the bathroom and I are very close friends now. It's that kind of sick you get out of nowhere and don't know where it went when it's gone.

And if you follow the news...southern California (thankfully not all of it) had some fun power outage yesterday. I was home most of the day sleeping, doing homework, relaxing and all. I initially wanted to get some fresh air later on that day when the temps cooled down a little, but nope I had to go out earlier. The phone rang and we were told to pick up my friend's brother because his classes got all canceled due to no power. Hmmmm. We thought it was a joke but apparently not. So we drove and what normally is a ten-minute drive, or a five-minute drive from the exit we would take to the school...turned out to be a 40-minute turn/drive. People went nuts. Apparently some people don't know how to drive when it comes to using lights as stop signs. PLUS, why the heck did people get so upset over nothing!!! It's just power that's out. You are still alive, breathing, driving and picking up not yell at me, or my friend, or anyone else for that matter. Do not tell us how to drive because clearly we can't move anymore since there's a car in front of us and hello?!, even if you could drive/pass us you would not be going anywhere either. YOU ARE STUCK.
Yes, we had some weird people yelling at us and pointing fingers and such. Not the most pleasant one. We ignored those for most part until it got nasty so we returned the favor. And for the record, we were not blocking the street or intersection. Just saying.

Luckily when we got home we still had power, so we really practically lived at the borderline of that power drama. 

And to make this week fun and positive, rather than aggressive and dull...I am in love with two things this week:

Do I need to say more? Clearly NOT.

And the following product:

I am clearly in heaven whenever I use this!!
Never thought I'd be so happy using a product but I am. 
That's pretty much everything for this week.
It's been a hectic one, and a long one. I blame it on the long weekend we had last week and the fact that I got sick some time this earlier this week. Still recovering, still working, still breathing and all this with electricity!!! 

Hope you are having a fabulous Friday and a fantastic weekend!!

Oh, how Pinteresting Wednesday

Today, I decided to participate again in "Oh, how Pinteresting Wednesday". I feel it's time because not only does Pinterest inspire me it distracts me big time, and I have to admit I love it!


So, thanks to Michelle's weekly are my pictures of this week:

and my favorite for this week; and this season!!!

Do you see a common theme here?
Ha, of course. :) Fall.

Not that it started over here but it's still one of my favorite seasons!!
Wohoo!!! :D

Happy Wednesday everyone.

Three classes for me today, and then I'm done for today.
And well, my day yesterday and today started out nicely...I had some awesome tasting pumpkin spice latte!!!
Did you?
I just wish it wasn't 95 degrees I'd be enjoying it more!!!

Monday update on my whereabouts

Hey my lovely readers!

Hope you're having a fabulous longer weekend and can relax a little or just sit back and enjoy life a little more than usual. For most of my downtime during this very long weekend I read books, slept in (woops!), did laundry, played with dogs, and explored the area. Living over here and knowing places doesn't mean I don't get excited anymore. There is always something to do and explore. I love this about big cities. Without further are some of my recent least some proof I am still alive and all. ;)

I looked very unattractive but it was Disneyland...and a super hot I went with whatever was comfy that day!!! :)
And I went with my friend and blog buddy Sierra from Ocean Dreams!!

And I found something that reminds me of home.
I knew it existed but didn't think we'd pass by it. ;) 

More unattractiveness on a Friday mid day. Please ignore the wrinkled shirt and ugly pose. I was so not ready for this picture!! But please, blame it on the fact that I only had a four-hour night's rest and woke up at 5am. I went to bed early but simply couldn't sleep. And we somehow had to go through lots of administrative stuff that day.

At least we got to eat at Toast and relax for a while that same day.

I clearly am doing fabulous over here. :)
And I am trying to stay healthy, too. The picture above is proof enough, no?!

I have more pictures but I don't want to bother you, and me for that matter.

Happy Monday I guess.
Are y'all off?!
I am so glad I have no classes today.
I could not handle them now. At all.
