This will be my last post before my 10 day Vegas trip! Yes I’m going on vacation while I’m on vacation from school. Vacation-ception!
Went on a casual date with the boyfriend last weekend after a long month of us being sick and on the verge of death.
Christmas present from Flo this year! I didn’t need boots like this but I’m pretty glad I have them.
I bought this after my birthday will all of the gift cards I received. I needed one for work because I hate not knowing what time it is. I wish still had the box it came it, they have the cutest tin boxes. This watch literally goes with everything.
Wallet: Michael Kors
One of handful of presents my boyfriend got me for Christmas. It hold plenty and my iphone could even fit in there if I didn’t have a crazy ridiculous case. and it’s in one of my top 3 favorite colors – hot pink. What I like most about this is that it doesn’t have that obnoxious MK print all over it. Seriously every time I see that MK print I read it as “mmkay” like Mr. Mackey from South Park.
We went to Mai Lan Restaurant for some pho. I couldn’t wait for the pho so we got egg rolls. But egg rolls are always a good idea.
I got the pho tai, rice noodle soup with rare beef aka the first item on any pho menu ever. I will always love pho because what other meal can you pay like $5 for and get a big bowl of awesome deliciousness that isn’t sketchy.
The next day I got a pre-vaycay haircut by my usual hair stylist, Crystal at Xquisite Designs. Switched it up a bit and showed her a picture of Beyonce’s bangs because Beyonce is fabulous. But let’s be serious, I show her different celebrities every so often to make me feel like I’m doing something different with my hair. Bangs are my secret weapon…
My mother told me I looked like Where’s Waldo in pastels that day.
I own too many striped shirts. Every time I come home I find one that I left behind.
Jeans: Free People
Got a great deal on both of these! I got lucky and got those pants under $20 and I think I those boots were on sale for $15. My thrifty shopping skills keep getting better with time.
Hat: Forever 21
I thought I lost this floppy knitted hat for good until I realized that my mother borrowed it and never gave it back. Looks like I’ll be taking it back and never letting anyone borrow it ever again.
The boyfriend and I went on a random middle of the week date recently.
Dress: Urban Outfitters
Sweater: Forever 21
I’m not sure if this picture does a good job of showing it, but they’re ombre tights. They go from navy to grey. They’re great winter tights, they’re thick and look great with boots. This is also one of the few things I can afford from Anthrpologie. My employee discount just makes everything less expensive but still out of my lame broke college kid price range. Someday I’ll move into an Anthropologie, yes you read that right.
We went to Limp Lizard in Liverpool for some bro food. This place is literally less than 5 mins from my house and I’ve never been until that day. My boyfriend who lives across the lake in Camillus has been here more times than I have. Anyways, I ordered a dozen hot wings which were great. Except for one thing, no matter what I did I could not get the bleu cheese to stick to them! I’ve never ran into such a crazy problem before in my life. It was an outrage, then I remembered I still had a dozen perfectly good wings in front of me. I get over things pretty quickly sometimes.
Yesterday I went out with my boyfriend and his family to the brand new P.F. Chang’s for a pre-birthday dinner kinda thing. I somehow convinced everyone to order my favorite appetizer there, chicken lettuce wraps. My only complaint is that they give you four leaves of lettuce and expect that to feed an entire table of people. I have a small appetite 47% of the time and that’s not even enough for me.
My boyfriend’s mother ordered the bottle of wine. Ignore the suggestive name, because that’s what I did all night. It was a blend of merlot, zinfandel, and cabernet.
I ordered the crab fried rice. Aside from crab it had shitaki mushrooms, asparagus, red peppers, and I think some sriracha. Apparently this is one of their newest items on the menu so I gave it a shot. It was pretty good but a little spicier than I thought it’d be. Pretty sure whatever’s left of it was eaten by my family. *sigh*
And it’s not a true chain restaurant experience without some sort of birthday freebie! The boyfriend and I split that piece of tiramisu. Other than it tasting a little too frozen it was still pretty good.
