"Going out of your comfort zone can sometimes be a good thing"

I told you all in my last post that I had gotten a few things from my fall wishlist, so this post is dedicated to showing you all what I got. I went a little crazy and bought a few extra things. I usually feel disappointed for buying things that I'm not supposed to buy, but I LOVE all these items so I am very happy I got them. I also got really good deals out of them, so it made me even more inclined to buy them. I really wanted to do a youtube video of my haul, BUT I don't think i'm ready to talk on video yet. I feel like i'll look stupid, but soon I'll get the confidence to do it! Anyway hope you all like my buys! Let me know what you think!

From my Wishlist:
Fur Vest: Forever 21 $22.80
I originally wanted to get a full fur vest, BUT when I saw this one I immediately fell in love with it and felt like it was the best choice for me since I've never owned a fur vest. It has like a knit material in the back.

Orange Knit Sweater: Citiwear $21.99
I love this sweater! It's so cozy! It's a little oversize, but I like it this way because it fits my body type a bit better.

Leopard Flats: Local Boutique $16.99
Tan Boots: Local Boutique $24.99
I'm sure you've seen these boots in the last post, and I have to say I really love them! I can already picture so many outfits with these boots! My leopard flats I've worn them a few times already, but wasn't able to take pictures of them. Waahhhh

Mixed material jacket- ROSS $19.99
I read in PeopleStyleWatch Magazine's September issue that jackets with mixed material are trending for fall. I thought this one was really cute and edgy and it fit so good! I can't wait till it gets colder so I can wear this.

Fringe sweater- G Stage $17.95
I'm sure you all saw this in the last post. I got this mainly because I needed a thin sweater that I could wear on days when it wasn't too cold. I thought that the fringe on the bottom added an extra spice to it. 
Lace Shirt- ROSS $12.99
I noticed that in my closet I have nothing that is lace material. Normally when I see lace material shirts they are  a tank top, so when I saw this one I knew I had to get it! The price made me want to get the shirt that much more! 
 Orange over sized purse- Downtown LA $30
I was seriously in need of a new purse, so when I saw this one in Downtown LA I fell in love with it! I love the color so much because it can make any outfit pop instantly!

"Never compare yourself to other people, everyone is different in every way and those things that are unique about you may be what people love most"

I've been so happy this week because it's starting to get a bit colder here in Cali! I love the cold weather, especially because it means cuddle time! LOL I've been able to buy a few more things from my wish list and I'm hoping to make my next post of all my new buys! I only have 3 things I need from my wishlist! I really can't wait until the weather cools down way more than this, but for now I'll have to enjoy the small amount of cold weather I'm getting. The outfit for today's post is what I am wearing to school today. I got my boyfriend to take a few pictures before our next class! Hope you all like them and let me know what you think!

"Fashion can be bought, style one must possess"

Okay so this not having internet thing is driving me nuts! LOL I'm here at work trying to post some outfit pictures and all my coworkers are looking at me like I'm crazy since I'm never here early and I brought my laptop. Anyway I've been going out like crazy this whole week! On Tuesday I went to dinner with some of my coworkers to see another coworker who has been gone for quite sometime because she is pregnant. Wednesday I went to a gay nightclub for a friend's birthday and yesterday I went to a sushi bar for another of my friend's birthday. Before I put up my pictures from this week I want to apologize for not writing back on any comments or following back anyone. I will as soon as I get the chance, just bare with me please! :) Again I love all of your comments and they brighten up my day whenever i receive an email on my phone saying I have a comment. Thank you all for your continuing support and for making me feel welcome to the blogging world! XOXO
P.S. I dyed my hair brown again so let me know what you think!

"Be grateful for everything you have and never take anything or anyone for granted"

Hey guys! So first of all I'd like to apologize for the lack of posts! I recently went to Las Vegas for a few days and when I came back I found out my mom had cancelled our internet! BUMMER!! So for now I have to use the internet at school (which is what I'm doing at this very moment). I'm trying to find internet plans for the use of just one computer, so if any of you know of any please let me know! I am dying without the internet! Anyway I did manage to take a few pictures from my outfits in Vegas. The weather was seriously perfect there! Usually every time I go it is way too hot for comfort. But this time is was neither too hot and nor too cold. We went for my friend Gabby's birthday and I ended up having a great time there! Hope you all like my pictures! Let me know what you think!

"And the butterflies never seem to go away < 3"

Yesterday I went out to a bar for my friend's 22nd birthday. It was a lot of fun, and the best part was that my boyfriend came with me! It's really funny because my boyfriend isn't much a of a party person, but I on the other hand LOVE to dance! I can seriously dance for hours! I normally go out with my girls, but this time he came with me since my friend's boyfriend is also his best friend. I love having him around when I go out to these type of places because i can show him my moves! (lol) But really it just makes my day when I'm able to share things that i love to do with him. Anyway enough about him, I wanted to share the outfit i wore last night. i really love how the outfit came out. So let me know what you think!

"If you have a good person by your side never take them for granted"

Okay so I'm really sad that i didn't go out to LA for fashion's night out. It would have been a great experience to be there! But oh well there's always another time. So since i wasn't able to do that I ended up going to a teen fashion show that they had at the shopping mall where I work at. It was hosted by one of the competitors from Project Runway, Santino Rice. (wish I would've been able to take a picture with him, but because of the lack of organization there, I wasn't able to) Anyway it was really nice seeing a lot of young kids showing off their passion for fashion. I had a really great time since i ended up going with my mother and little sister. It's always a great time when your with family and tonight was no exception. Here are a few pictures I took with my little sister and of the venue. I was finally able to show off my new military vest! It looked just like I envisioned it. Let me know what you think!

"Putting positive thoughts into the universe will only bring you back positive energy. So don't let the negative energy take over your life and put the positive out there."

So I'm really excited for this post because I won my very first blog award!! Olivia from bklynlifestyle nominated me for this award and I am at a loss of words! I've only been doing this for a few months now and as I've mentioned before ALL of your comments mean the world to me! And this just made my day like no other! I've mentioned Olivia's blog a couple of times in the past two posts because I really love her blog! Okay so enough of my blabbing. So here are the rules for the award:
1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you
2. Write 7 random things about yourself
3. Spread the love to 15 other bloggers

7 Random things: 
1. I am completely in love with the show Fringe! I'm not sure if any of you have seen it, but if you haven't I definitely recommend it! the fourth season starts September 23rd!
2. I have a really bad nail biting habit! I swear I can't stop!
3. For some reason when I text people(and when I'm writing comments or posting on my blog) I always include either alot of !,  (LOL) 's or :) . I dont know I always feel like people sound so drab in their texts or they often misinterpret your texts, so to avoid any conflict I always add one of those things! lol.. They can't possibly think you're mad or something if you add those things!
4. I am Mexican and fluent in Spanish and can read and write perfectly in Spanish!I sometimes even correct my mom when she misspells a word. (I know a lot of you have seen a few of my comments in Spanish, but still I thought I'd put it out there for those of you who don't know.) 
5. I have the biggest pet peeve when there are grammatical errors in books or anything that is written. I know that a lot of my posts don't have the best grammar, But it really drives me crazy when there are numerous errors. (I guess that kind of makes me crazy)
6. If I could go anywhere in the world it would probably be Greece. The food, landscape, architecture all seem very interesting to me. 
7. My favorite band of all time is Coldplay! I love their music and there's mot one song I don't like! Their lyrics are so poetic and really touch me in many ways. 

Okay so I seriously follow and LOVE so many blogs so this was a hard choice for me, BUT I do have some that are currently my favorite: (I won't put Olivia's since she nominated me, BUT she is currently one of my favorites!)

1. loveoffashion22- Love her style and her personality! The way she puts together her outfits is amazing to me!
2. nanysklozet - I know she probably gets so many of these, but I love the her blog so much! She is such a big inspiration to me and her creativity never seizes to amaze me. i also really love the fact that she comments to a lot of bloggers and is in touch with many of her followers! 
3. ashesintofashion- Shes so gorgeous! But not only that her personality really shines through the camera! 
4. lilbitsofchic- Love that she shows a lot of personality in her posts! I feel like i know her as a person just by reading them!
5. cheetokisses- I love this girl! I feel like we're friends now! lol. But seriously I always enjoy reading her nice comments and her blog! 
6. beautyfash- i love the fact that she not only posts her outfits, but also things that she cooks! She seems to be an amazing mother and wife and her fashion sense is on point!
7. fashionbeautyglamour- She doesn't do outfit posts, but she posts a lot of things about the Kardashian style (which I loove!) and I also love that she posts different things that inspire her.
8. notwithoutmyheels- I love her fashion sense! All of her outfits look so great on her!
9. mariannan- Her style is very different yet simple and she seems like such a sweet girl!
10. fashionbananas- Her style seems like from another era, yet very modern and with her own personal twist. 
11. maytedoll- Love that she does so many Kardashian recreations!
12. mariacamilascloset- Her look is so classy and still sexy at the same time! I love reading all her posts!
13. alishafashionista- She also has a different style and a great fashion sense!
14. nosiinmiistacones- Her style is so effortless and simple, but it fits her very well!
15. dulcecandy- Finally the one and only dulce! This girl can seriously rock an outfit! Anything goes with her and her bubbly personality is a plus! She's one of the main reasons I started blogging!

Again there's so many blogs I really love! You are all an inspiration to me and are very unique in your own way.

"Give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime"

So today was a very loong day! I started fall semester already and I have school Monday and Wednesday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.! The weather here in Chino has been so crazy. Last week it was perfect weather and this week it was so hot with lots of humidity. I hate this weather it makes me so lazy and sweaty. Anyway I have a few pictures I forgot to post the other day so here they are! I also included to pictures one of one of the items from the fall wishlist! Thanks to Olivia from bklynlifestyle for encouraging me to get it before they sell out! I'm already so in love with it and I can't wait to wear it. the second other picture I included is of my boy! He was resting since he comes to school the same hours as I do so I snuck a picture in!
 Sorry for the funny faces! The sun was in my eyes so I couldn't really see the camera.

 So cute :)
Let me know what you think!

Fall Wishlist

Okay so I know a lot of people are doing wish lists for the month, but I decided to do something a little differently and do one just for the fall season since most of my items are a little pricey. I'm trying to control my shopping and expenses this year so making this list will definitely help me! Okay so here it is, I will be making a post every time I get one of the items on the list. Let me know what you guys think!
-Nancy <3
Fall Wishlist

  1. Orange knit sweater- I'm really loving anything knit for the fall. I don't really own anythin

1. Orange knit sweater- Okay so I love the color on this knit sweater and I have already thought of a million ways I can wear this! 
2. Military Vest- So I saw this vest on a blog and I thought it was soo cute! She bought it at Old Navy and I'm hoping I can still find it there!
3. Black Tights- I've owned so many tights through the years, but I always find myself buying some every single year because I wear them so much during the winter. So again they are on my shopping list!
4. Fur Vest- So this one I'm really excited about because I've been wanting one since last year! I finally gained the courage to get one so hopefully I find a cute one with a great price!
5. Burgundy Jeans- I'm really liking the colored jeans trend, but I already own two pairs of very bright jeans  soo I want some that aren't as bright. This color is also perfect for the fall and there's many ways I can wear them.
6. Leopard Flats- I normally don't get flats because I always have a hard time keeping them clean, BUT I need something other than boots and I definitely can't wear sandals for the fall. I love anything animal print so I'm excited to get these babies!
7. Tan Boots- I absolutely looove looove loove tan boots! I love the color and I think they go with any outfit! Last year I wasn't able to buy any tan boots so I had to stick with black ones, which I think made my outfits look so drab and similar to each other. So I am making it my mission to get these!

"I am not a girl, I am not a line, I am not a girl that can ever be defined" -Nicki Minaj

So I wasn't able to get a photographer today so I had to resort to webcam pictures. I hate not being able to do outfit posts so I guess this will have to do for now! Okay so I got this top at Buffalo Exchange about 3 months ago and it's one of my favorites! I think I got it for under 8 dollars. I decided to pair it up with one of my favorite chains. I also wore some black leggings with it and you can't see them on her but I also wore some tan sandals to create a contrast of color. Hope you like it and let me know what you think!
