Just came back from watching the last Twilight movie with my sister. I'm so sad it's over and even sadder over the fact that I will never marry a vampire and have a hybrid child. Humans just don't cut it for me. *cries*

I just got back from having dinner in LA with Vera from Verameat! I have a friend in my sorority who knows Vera's little sister so she set this dinner up. We went to Nong La, a Vietnamese restaurant, and it was actually really good! I had never tried Vietnamese food before. It was such a surreal experience meeting my favorite jewelry designer and it couldn't have happened at a better time. I've been questioning what to pursue in college and she gave me some valuable advice.

House of Harlow necklace. I've been looking at it for a while and decided to get the taupe color because taupe's in and everyone has the black one...(hipster problems?)

It has been ridiculously hot in Malibu, I'm having flashbacks to New York City this past summer.

Mock Missoni

Photobucket
I went shopping on Melrose with my roommate this past weekend and found this cute little dress. The print screams iconic Missoni. Melrose could possibly be my favorite place on earth. Nasty Gal and other trendy online boutiques have a lot of the same pieces found on Melrose with insane price tags. There definitely are a lot of junk stores so you have to know where to shop. (I stick to the blocks with both Timeless Boutiques). I'm not a big fan of the vintage shops. Their clothing is over priced and they usually have stuff from Urban Outfitters' previous collection which doesn't technically count as "vintage". And in general, vintage shopping isn't really my thing and I find myself immediately reaching for hand sanitizer when leaving the store.

Colllleeegeeee. Is interesting. Way different than I expected or what I was told. Yes, there actually is homework. And maybe it's just my school, but it's graded and counts. This college definitely feels a lot like high school but more close minded and not so accepting which is weird because one would expect a college near Los Angeles to be culturally aware. Maybe I'm just getting ahead of myself so I'll have to see how everything works out.

So I've definitely combated the humidity issue. Apparently there's tons of products for this kind of stuff. Alterna anti-frizz hair spray, Peter Thomas Roth oil-control spf 20, Bumble and Bumble anti-frizz serum, etc. They're all pretty great products and basically my hair and make up's lifeline down here in Malibu.

College

Photobucket
Wow, I haven't taken that long of a hiatus from blogging, ever. Life has been pretty hectic. I moved to my dorm at Pepperdine and I've just been situating myself for the past week. Today was my first day of classes so I decided not to go too extreme with the outfit (though it depends on what one would consider "extreme"). I was surprised by the amount of girls that dress up for classes though! I kept seeing a bunch of chiffon skirts, denim cut offs, and combat boots.
Photobucket
Malibu isn't very college student friendly. The closest Target is 30 minutes away and there's not much to do around here (especially if you don't surf, like me). But I'm really excited to be living here. I signed up for the equestrian club and surf club and I'm a sports medicine major with a pre-med concentration.

P.S. Excuse the crappy photos. These were taken in my dorm's common room just after classes because I don't want to be the "strange girl with the tripod" just yet!

Battlestar Galactica

Photobucket
I have been spending most of my free time watching Battlestar Galactica or reading a Fifty Shades book. I DON'T HAVE A LIFE. No but like really, I hate leaving the house that's how lazy I am. 24 more days til college so I might as well relish the time I have to myself. 
I know I said Im over galaxy print but these leggings have cacti on them and are in the spirit of my new obsession with Battlestar. I feel a resurgence of leggings on the rise. Im not a huge fan of Black Milk but Lovely Sally leggings are amazing. Since Black Milk leggings are made of polyester and spandex, unless you have super skinny legs, youre going to look stumpy. The material just does nothing for my body.

Bleecker St.

While in New York, I was on a mission to find cool places to shop. Bleecker Street was kind of a bust and so was SoHo, on my first trip. I realized that the kind of stuff I was looking for was mostly quintessential Melrose Ave style. But I did go back for a second time and found a few cute little boutiques on Broadway. I had been exploring Mott Street and Mulberry Street when I should have been looking around Spring Street. I had gotten as far as Canal Street and then hopped on the subway because that area is absolutely frightening. Canal Street is where stolen and faux designer bags go to get sold on the black market. There's also a lot of Chinese influence here, so if you're looking for jade I suppose this is where you'd end up. Anyways, stuff in SoHo was way more expensive than it should be, but there are a lot of local designers that really take care of their costumers, so I feel like the stuff I bought was worth it. I wanted a belt and it didn't fit so the boutique owner brought out a leather hole puncher and took care of that problem. You just don't get service like that at Urban Outfitters or Bloomingdale's. I'll post about the stuff I bought later.

One week old shellac (it peeled off later that same day). Love the finish but it only lasted me a week. 
Oh and amazing ring I picked up at this shop on Bleecker that was going out of business.

I look unkempt and flustered due to my crazy morning on the last day there. I went to Norma's at Le Meridien and I was served a smoothie that I was told the incorrect ingredients to and it ended up having something I was allergic to in it. I had my epinephrine shot so everything ended up fine.
