Found a funny old polaroid of my sister & I with Saint Nick

The side-draped skirt was also featured in Lucky magazine's 2008 December issue. It looks like I'm ahead of the game. :)

So this is the reason why I've been missing in action lately. Life feels great..not like it didn't before, but I just thought we should give it a try and see where this goes. No pressure. We're still young so why not have fun? :)
By the way, if you're reading this..
I just wanted to let you know that you're wonderful and I..
Can't wait to see you when you get back!

It's that time of the year again! I enjoy making a wish list of things I like and could afford realistically. This list is probably more for me than anyone else, it helps serve as a reminder of things I need to buy for myself. But if you'd like to help me complete my list then that is fine with me too. :)
1. Magazine subscription to Harper's Bazaar & Elle
2. Dresses : size small or 3/4
Forever21 Melanie F.Suede Pump ($21.80)
Forever21 Richie Platform Pumps ($19.80)
Forever21 Puddle Rain Boots ($24.80)
Forever21 Lillian Tote ($24.80)
Forever21 Jeweled Gathered Satin Clutch ($15.80)

School is done for me and now I finally have time for myself.
What to do?
1.) Look for a job
2.) Catch up with all my friends
3.) Play more games
4.) Read a book
5.) Watch some movies
6.) Play the piano
7.) CLEAN MY ROOM. The past few weeks have been so hectic and it's so hard to maintain a clean room when there is no more space for clothes.
8.) Resubscribe to Lucky magazine and I was also thinking about subscribing to Elle & Harper's Bazaar.
But most importantly,
I need to prepare myself for next semester. It is going to be so hectic! >.<

This is a good time to wear my hair in a chignon because the wind keeps messing it up. A chignon is a popular type of bun style and it comes from the French phrase "chignon du cou," which mean nape of the neck. It's meant to be worn on special occasions like formals & weddings. But a basic chignon can be worn for everyday casual wear.

follow your own path,
and don't worry about the darkness,
for that is when the stars shine brightest.

It's crazy how things can happen all at once in a blink of an eye.

Sunrises are special to me because it reminds me of a particular time of my life. So I'm glad I got to capture this moment because I'm rarely awake early enough to watch one. There's just something about the morning air that makes life seem refreshing.

A friend showed me some of Ryuichi Ogino's work today and I was simply amazed when I researched more of his work online. I like these pieces particularly because it breaks the stereotypes of how Japanese females are portrayed. I've also always admire the casual style of how the younger Japanese woman dress over there, maybe we can learn a thing or two from the people who live across the seas.
Ogi's work sort of reminds me of the stuff Stell Im Hultberg does except her work is a little bit more subtle and ethereal. I don't know but I've always had a thing for simple portrait illustrations.

I think the best kind of style is the one you feel most comfortable or challenge yourself to be in. It's not always about matching or caring about what others think. The most important critic is yourself and that is all that matters. I admire the users on lookbook.nu because this website has real people with real style.

make the days count.

Today would a nice day to sit outside on the grass next to a pond and munch on A Handful of Everything. This jar contains a mixture of raisins, almonds, chocolate drops, peanuts, cashews, coconut & dried fruit.
Even though I'm sick, I am in such a great mood today. I am ready for anything! :)

I hope everyone had a happy&spooky halloween! Mine was kind of hectic..and you know how I get when I feel rushed throughout the entire day...I get cranky! Well anyway, there was a Halloween party on Friday and the theme was school girls & nerds. Don't you think it's kind of odd to throw a themed party when Halloween should already be a theme by itself? Oh well, the party turned out fun!
My best friend somehow convinced me the week before to be a sailor scout with her and at first I thought the idea was SUPER EMBARRASSING. But when do I ever feel embarrassed about anything?? It took a lot of motivation but I ended up finishing my outfit right before the party and I was very satisfied with how it turned out! Fabric at Joann's only costed $8 and the bows probably amount up to $2. Halloween costumes should always be this cheap! Now that I feel more confident about sewing, maybe I will start making my own outfits from now on instead of wasting money at the mall.

Which is almost done, by the way! I still have a lot more things to tweak it up. Like buying the pillows I want for the futon, finding a decorative bowl & decorative clock, preferably the black silhouette cuckoo clock that is ONLY $17 at target! This is such a rare find because most silhouette clocks run for about $100+. I also saw one on Wal-Mart's website selling for $14.99, but just like Target, all the clocks were sold out. Boo...

I've been having the urge to dress vintage lately (minus the girdle).
The trends to know: high heels, pencil or swing skirt, shape & volume.

Life would be simpler if we didn't waste our breath and time sweating about unnecessary things. This motto took me awhile to learn and once I finally understood it, I felt much more satisfied with myself. :)

Wow, I haven't been to a basketball game in a while. I used to go all the time with my dad when I was younger. It doesn't seem as it exciting anymore as it used to be. But I still had a fun night nonetheless! Orlando Magic won, yay!
Thai food + good game = happy Krystle

After weeks of trying to save money, I finally went shopping today with my best friend. We spent about 2 hours in the new Forever21 store at Prime Outlets and we felt a little spontaneous..so we decided to go the Forever21 at Millenia Mall just to make sure we bought everything we needed. It would of been nice to catch up with her for dinner afterwards but we both had an appointment at 6PM that we couldn't be late to.
I love those days where you can catch up on all of your errands and have a time left over to treat yourself to whatever you like. I wish I had more of those days..

I haven't had time to rest or sleep in the past 24 hours. It's not like I haven't done it before, but I felt really bad for being in a such a cranky mood during the Breast Cancer walk this morning. I have work again at 6PM so hopefully I can get some sort of sleep because last night my friends & I got out of work at 3:30AM & then we stayed up to go to community service at 6AM. Tomorrow also looks like it's going to be a long day.

While I was finishing up my daily routine of checking the Forever21 website for new items, I came across a picture with an outfit that was featured in one of the categories. I absolutely adore this look and more importantly, I want the skirt that she's is wearing. And I want it now.

Don't be scared to fall down, because you can always pick yourself back up. Let your wheels guide you and leave all your troubles behind. And these words are what I try to live my life by.
