Kate Bosworth's JewelMint

Today was a busy/lazy day for me as i have just recently finished cleaning up my horror of a room. It seems i cant keep it clean even for one week, especially with my school uniform always ending up on the floor, missing the dirty clothes hamper buy a good 5 feet ahaha. But anyways its now spotless and i've forced myself to put down Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone ( i'm a new reader and decided to see if these books/movies are all everyone says it is, I basically just want to see what all the hype is about)and pick up my latest copy of Teen Vogue.

When it comes to reading magazines i'm a skimmer. I tend to be skim the glossy pages  for about 10 minutes before reading it then put it down for a time when i will actually sit and read every single article and picture caption. The point of me telling you all this is that while i was chewing on my 5 electric watermelon flavored gum (GO BUY IT ITS AMAZING!) and reading my eyes caught the page of simply amazing pieces of jewelry. Wondering what this article could be about - since i'm an accessories fanatic - i soon find out that Kate Bosworth and her best friend and celebrity stylist Cher Coulter have started an online costume-jewelry boutique called JewelMint. Its basically a way for the two to bring higher end fashion to the women of the public at not even a 50 dollar price. Upon joining the site you must take a style quiz to see what type of jewelry from their collection would best suit you and at a price of $29.99 a month a piece of jewelry you pick could be yours, and get this... even the shipping cost is free! You can expect to find some pieces you wish your grandmother had, and if your grandmother does have the jewelry taste of Bosworth and Coulter, more power to yah!

Karl Lagerfeld Designs Collection for Macy's


Karl Lagerfeld is going to be designing a collection for yess, MACY'S! This is exactly the type of thing I've been waiting for!! Okay so here's whats going down:
He will basically be designing a capsule collection ( i'm assuming you know what that is ) for Macy's which will be hitting the racks next fall and he'll automatically be the second designer to join the new designer series "club" Macy's just started.. and what would a designers series be without the grand master Kaiser Karl? 
(Kinder Aggugini was the first to kick it off).
Of course its a limited-edition line as the whole purpose of the designer series is to have a new designer every two months; which means be ready to grab your coats and your car keys ladies because this will definitely be a seller-outter as soon as it hits the stores. His teamwork with H&M in 2004 was sheer epicnicity so without a doubt you already know he'll be concocting some drool worthy, jaw dropping, and something-to-get-flabbergasted-over pieces. The big ol' question is though, will he be showing his artistry from Chanel in this collection or a new type of novelty?

First OOTD!

YAAAAAYYYY FIRST OOTD! soo excitedd, i wonder why it too me soo long to actually get around to putting one up? :S
 wellp better late than never eh?

Jacket: ASOS

The Big Ol' Blog Post

Today is exactly one month and one day from my last post, i blame it on blogger burnout.
See, i was lucky enough to make it through the canadian thanksgiving (October 11) and still keep posting, but i didn't make it far :( obviously.
But now i'm back people, and with a whole lot more to blog about so i'm doing one big ol' blog post.

First off, i would like to acknowledge the fact that i am completely obsessed with Ebay. It seems that everytime i come across the site i end up looking for/at stuff i don't really need, just want, and i know everyone knows what i'm talking about. Its the same situation when you walk into a store at the mall and you opt on buying your 6th hoodie or your 4th pair of yoga pants. SMH its too addicting to quit too, as i'm blogging right now i have a window open on Ebay... i'm searching for an Audrey Hepburn poster. Not to mention the bag and rings i bought from Ebay last month and my double shopping spree in the last week.
*on the off note: Why can't i find Breakfast At Tiffany's online?!!?!?!

I'm actually kinda lucky in a way though aha. My school had a trip to NYC, (YES  NYC!!!) last thursday and just came back today (as if four days in NYC will ever be enough for one person). But, here's the best part: I DIDN'T GO!!! i spent countless weekends daydreaming about the trip only to get a "we'll see", but only because my parents are really strict about my safety that they said that. But on a compromise of me NOT going on the trip because my mom and dad know i'm a young SJP at heart, they opted for me to go to:


(insert crazy dancing here)
Is there even a better time to ever be there?

Thank goodness that one of my good friends went on the trip and even MORE  thank goodness that we both have bbm, that she was able to send me pictures during the whole trip. She even took a picture of those Jimmy Choo & UGG boots which she sent me via bbm and it is now my blackberry wallpaper ahaha.
I wanted to cry, but hey, everything happens for a reason no?
But yeah, back to the reason of why i'm lucky i didn't go on the trip: i would have maxed out my credit card.
I'm already a big spender and even though my friend spent over 300USD, i can tell you now that if i was there with her, child i would have spent what no girl would ever want to spend. NO LIE i would have no self control. HAHA maybe if i did go i could attend a Shopaholic Anonymous meeting!
