"Don't take any stranger as just another person because that stranger can become a life long friend"

Hey guys! Okay so here's a quick post before I go out. So this week's challenge was to dress up like your favorite era. I had a few ideas in mind and I really wanted to do 1930's or 40's , but I didn't have enough things to reflect either of those. I ended up with the pin up look which is between the 40's and the 50's I believe. Anyway I tried to do the hair and makeup but it didn't look as good in picture as in person. I tried to keep it modern because I didn't want to look like I was celebrating Halloween early. So here's the outfit! Let me know what you think!

Skirt- Forever 21
Shirt- Citiwear
Clutch- H & M
Heels- Wet Seal

"You think you've found true love, but then you meet someone who treats you like no other and then you truly find out what love is"

Okay so today's post is dedicated to the outfit challenges by NanysKlozet and Flor De Maria Fashion. This weeks challenge was to dress up like your favorite fashion blogger! I loved this challenge because there are so many bloggers that inspire me and I've always wanted to recreate many of their outfits. Today I had the chance to recreate an outfit from one of my favorite bloggers Marta from I love her style and the diversity in her outfits! So here's the outfit! Let me know what you think!

Okay so here's Marta's outfit                                                And..........Here's mine!!!!!!

"They say people in your life are seasons"

Okay so I'm doing a quick post before I go out. My boyfriend is will kill me if he finds out I'm doing this post rather than heading over to his house already! LOL Okay so here is my second outfit incorporating black. This time I felt like doing all black. I love wearing all black for some reason it makes me feel very comfortable and an easy outfit to wear. Anyway I decided to add some burgundy feather earrings (which I bought for $1.99!!!) and a few bracelets I recently bought. About my day, I hung out all day with my friend Gabby. It's really funny because we used to be so close and a little bit ago we became distant. Even through all the things we've been through it seems that it's back to the way it was. You know a lot of people say that the best of friends are those that you can go periods of time without talking to, but when you get together again it's like they were always there. Hope you like the pics and let me know what you think!

"If it is important to you,you will find a way. If not, you'll find an excuse"

Hello lovelies! So this morning I went on a hike with my boyfriend and our friends Steven and Gabby. For a long time I've been trying to lose weight in any way possible, but I always find myself having a hard time sticking to the habit of working out, dieting, or simply eating better. I came across this quote from my title on my favorite show Keeping up with the Kardashians. It really put a lot into perspective and made me realize that all I have been doing is making excuses for myself. I still haven't yet gotten to the point where I am fully committed to doing all that I can to lose weight, but hey at least I'm admitting now that I have been making excuses for myself! So anyway remember how in my last post I talked about how I would wear black in my outfits and incorporate different things? Well I took my first one today. Here it is and let me know what you think!

"If your life isn't going the way it's supposed to be, try changing your habits"

Okay so I know I haven't been posting lately, BUT I'm really going to try to start doing daily posts (or at least a few times a week). Anyway I was really upset because this past weekend I had a lot of events I went to and didn't take any outfit pictures. Saturday my mom threw a Welcome Baby for my niece and I wore my new green jeans and white flowy top. At night it was my friend's birthday and I wore my gold and black cheetah print skirt, orange tank top and a black blazer. Finally Sunday I went to a wedding and I wore a printed dress with a black belt and my black blazer. All those outfits and no pictures! Sorry guys! On the other hand I did end up taking a few pictures (not my complete outfit) from Saturday night and Sunday. So here they are! Keep on reading after I have a few ideas about some future outfit posts.

Okay so this week I have been looking through some new blogs, which has become a big hobby of mine. I came across a blog it's called by Cindy. Anyway her style is mostly made up by dark colored materials (shoes, shirts, shorts, pants etc.) I've always loved the color black in clothing, not only because it makes you look thinner, but also because it's an easy way to make an outfit work. It's such a versatile color and you can play it up anyway you please. Sooooo.... my idea was that for a few or more outfit posts I will be wearing black in all my outfits. I'm going to dress up the color by adding pop of colors, adding accessories and basically dressing it in different ways. Other than those posts I will also be joining in the weekly challenges by Flor de Maria Fashion and NanysKlozet. This week you're supposed to dress like your favorite blogger and I already have an outfit in mind by one of my favorite bloggers! Sorry for the long post! Can't wait for the new ones to come!

"Retail therapy is the best kind of therapy"

I was feeling a little under the weather today so I decided to treat myself with a little shopping. I'm not too much of a big spender on clothes unless it's something I TRULY want or need. I was look for the best deals in stores and something I can dress up or down. So here is a picture of a few things I bought today. By the way my boyfriend is going to be in his cousin's wedding on Sunday and I tried finding a dress, but I had no luck. Hopefully I'll find one on Thursday when I go shopping with my friend. Anyway here are the prices of my amazing deals!

All shirts- Forever 21
white and black
Jeans- JC Penney
I had a coupon so they cost me $10.76!!

"A man is not only attracted to a woman because of her beauty, but also for the amount of confidence she carries"

Today I went to work early in the morning and in a little I will be going to the mall with my boyfriend. For some reason I woke up today feeling very good and with a lot of energy. I got a lot of things done today that I needed to get done. I just feel so productive today! Anyway I bought this shirt at Forever 21 a little ago for $8.80!! I love the color and immediately thought of pairing it with this new fedora I bought. Anyway off I go to the mall. Let me know what you think!

"The love that you get from a mother is never conditional"

This week my dad and my little sister left to Sacramento and left my mother and I by ourselves. It's so weird that we are living alone together for two whole weeks! My mother and I have always had this weird relationship, but regardless of the relationship we have I know that she loves me just as much as any of my siblings. Anyway I want to tell you a little about this quick outfit post. I've always wanted to try the maxi skirt trend, but I didn't want to buy a maxi skirt unless I knew I would actually wear it. So what I did was wear my maxi dress and I put this top on top of it. I must say it came out a cute outfit, but not something I would personally wear. Anyway let me know what you think!

Shirt & Maxi Dress- Forever 21

P.S. I've noticed that in all of my outfits I wear at least one thing that is orange in color! So crazy!

"Sometimes you bond better with animals more than you would with any human being"

Okay so I know I said I wouldn't be able to post this week because I had work, but I ended up going this morning with my boyfriend to the dog park. It was a very hot morning so I threw on some shorts and a tank top and off I went! I love going to the dog park because I love seeing my dogs have so much fun running around. My dogs are indoor dogs so they really don't go out too much unless it's my backyard. Anyway here are the pics of my outfit. Let me know what you think!

"It's great to have your own imagination, but sometimes it's better when you have the help of someone"

So I know I haven't been posting up pictures of my outfits lately, but honestly I've been working everyday and I see no point in wearing an outfit when I don't go out anywhere and I have work right after. Anyway with that said I will post up a few pictures of some of my favorite bloggers and their outfits. These are the blogs that give me inspiration and help me out with planning my outfits.

There's still a lot more I missed, but I'll post up the rest tomorrow! By the way are any of these bloggers your favorite? I love them all!
