Sayulta, Mexico

Recently my boyfriend and I were invited on a trip to Vegas with some friends of ours, Ben and Susan. About a week or so later I got a message from one of them online saying we all needed to talk about our trip. To our surprise our friends had a new adventure in mind. Ben and Susan had been invited to stay at his boss's vacation home in Sayulita, Mexico! So pretty much we were told that all we needed to do was book a flight and get our passports and we could tag along! So, not only will this be Greg and my first real vacation with out some sort family orientation, it's my first time out of the United States! Yes, it is only Mexico... but I think it's amazing! 

The only down fall was that I really wanted to go to NY for the first time this summer as well. I would have been able to see one of my friends I haven't seen in what seems like forever and wish her well for her upcoming wedding. I guess you win some and lose some. Mexico is just so much more financially obtainable. 

Sayulita is a cute little fishing village north of Puerto Vallarta . It seems like there are lots of things to do for a smaller place. What I am mostly looking forward to is the food. I think my favorite food has to be Mexican food, so this is a really big treat for me. I'm dieting now just to counter act the 20 pounds I plan on gaining solely off of salsa , chips, and tasty fish tacos! This place is really know for it's hospitality and local flare. Nothing better than friendly locals and amazing cuisine. I've checked out quite a few travel websites, the blog of the owners house we are staying at and Sayulita's official website, SayulitaLife.com


Another great addition is the fact it's the same month as my 24th Birthday, and a month prior to my 5th anniversary with Greg. 

Well, to end my post today here are a few pictures off of http://www.sayulitalife.com/!

DOA

Well, as you all may have noticed I've been lacking in the post department. Work has been extremely busy and hectic this last month and it's all really taking a toll on what I can actually do during the day (blogging for example) .  Since I sadly do not have the internet at home I only post at work. I really should be working now, I just frankly need a break. 

I've been long awaiting the Garden Collection at H&M, so this weekend I went to the closest location to me. I actually didn't end up purchasing any of it. Don't get me wrong, some of it IS really desirable I  just think I might wait till it goes on sale! I'm really cheap and don't often buy things full price unless I think it might sell out, or I just can't wait. I'm actually used to waiting because my boyfriend and I have been through a lot, and up till a little over a year ago I actually didn't buy much for myself. I usually only purchased clothes and things of this nature around my birthday and Christmas. So I think I'm just really used to not buying to buy. I also have never owned a credit card ! I don't think clothes should ever be purchased on credit. I know a lot of people make more money than I do so I guess this isn't always the case... but I only spend money I have. This way I never get into debt. No debt is always the way to go.

Wow, sidetracked!

I did actually purchase my first pair of boyfriend jeans! I need to take the waist and butt in though, because I have really large legs and got them to fit my legs. I'll need to take an outfit picture this week because I got a few other really cute things. 

My boyfriend pointed out to me today that I've been buying a TON a things that have shoulder pads and/or really large "puffy" shoulders! I love it, I'm guessing he isn't as fond by his comments. hahaha. What does everyone think of this trend? Balmain has some of the best structured shoulders this season in my opinion. I also think they can do no wrong, so i may not be the best one to give advice.

Is it weird...

That I can't stop looking at wedding stuff and I'm not even getting married? I just makes me happy. I guess a girl can't be too ready for something like that to happen.

It's all about the shoes with me lately...

It seems I'm becoming addicted to shoes... Maybe it's just because that's the one thing my closet has always lacked a great variety of. I saw these bad boys online yesterday and went to go purchase them but to my dismay, they only have size 11 left.  boo-hoo. I'll just have to wait till they pop up on ebay... ugh, at probably double the price!



I've been doing a lot of life thinking the past few days. A lot in my life has been so up in the air for so long I'm thinking it's time to finally pick a direction for my life and future. It's just so hard when you don't know what is the most realistic option for me. I'm not all about pumping myself full of fantasies that will never come true( i.e. probably ever getting into the fashion industry). I guess that's a horribly pessimistic way to look at it.. but hey, that's just me I guess.

Well, enough with that. I hope everyone is enjoying there week so far.

Viktor & Rolf




I really loved the way they took the layers of clothes off the models so you could see everything. Like a butterfly escaping is cocoon. 

Excuse the long Lion King add at the start of the video.

Out of the Norm

I wouldn't normally post twice in a day but I just read online that UO is putting out a Bridal Line?!?! Not too sure what I think about this. It supposed to be 'heirloom' quality. I'm guessing this won't be the case because that store = every girls uniform. It's hard to buy anything from that store and not walk outside to find 5 girls wearing a variation of what you already have on. I guess we will all just have to wait and see exactly what they produce. Who knows, it could be everything they say it is. But I'm not holding my breath.

Down the Rabbit Hole I Go!

Since Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland  opened today I wanted to dedicate today's post to all things Alice...
While in my search for such things  I came across this film from 1903 . It is the original Alice in Wonderland Film! I just loved it. 

As I wracked my brain for more things I remembered about when Gwen Stefani went through her Alice phase. I can't tell you how much I loved this video when it came out!

So, in ode to one of my favorite childhood stories, here is a picture post!

Chicken of the Sea

All I have to say today is that I'm really diggin on what Jessica Simpson is doing with her shoes. I never thought she would be designing anything worth my time or money... They have A TON on sale too at Nordstroms!


Happy Thursday!



Sorry for such lack of posts this week. I'm feeling run down and un-inspired.
