I'm Back!!! Quick Update + Wishlist

    Wow! All I can say right now is time flies! I can’t believe it has already been two weeks since my last entry! If you know from my last post, I had the opportunity to go on a  “vacation,” in New  York for a week before school started. The vacation went by so fast and here I am back in school again for my SENIOR YEAR. I literally got back from New York yesterday at 10!!
  My first day has been pretty easy going, but tomorrow is going to be much harder because I have all my Ap Classes tomorrow. I’m also feeling a bit sleepy right now because I never can sleep before the night of my first school day. Does this happen to any of you or is it just me?

 I actually was expecting to come home Sunday instead of this Tuesday. (but I’m not complaining about two extra vacation days!”) However, I did not prepare a post/pictures for today so this is going to be kinda of in impromptu back to school wishlist post!  

 Before vacation, I spent a lot of time online doing some back to school shopping. For my actual school supplies such as binders and notebooks, I tend to wait until the start of school to purchase. That way I can see what my teachers want and not waste money buying useless binders. (lesson learned the hard way!) I also do tend to reuse my binders if possible because I would much rather save my money for other things. One thing I am in dire need of is a new backpack! My current backpack is antique looking and almost to the point of ripping. I really am looking into getting a backpack like these from either Asos or F21.


Asos Mi Pac Spot Print Backpack
From Asos
Metallic Paint Splatter Backpack
From Forever 21 (I love this one!) 
   As far as clothes go, I don't plan on going crazy with shopping. In fact, I just recently done a whole cleaning of my closet and I'm actually attempting to get rid of some clothes. Usually I give them to my little sister, but as she is getting older and older now, her personal style seems to be evolving and she is beginning to dislike the clothes I wear hehe. For my back to school, I do personally want a few clothing pieces. 

NIKE RACING
From Nike

   Since I am running cross country this year (also one of the captains whoot whoot!), I need some new running clothes! I have plenty of shorts and shirts, but I could do with a new pair of spandex. I have been eyeing a few, but the prices are a bit high, so I am hoping to go to Tj Maxx sometime soon to find some there. If you are looking for sports clothes, Tj Maxx has really good deals! I found some $8 shorts there!

  I really want a pair of these!! I just got a pair in white from Sugarlips, but the size was wrong. It was a bit too baggy on me, but I really loved them. I plan on getting the same pair in a smaller size and either using the larger pair as pajamas or giving it to someone else. 

Mineral Wash Denim Bustier
From Forever 21
Tie-Front Arrow Print Romper
From Forever 21

 These two items aren't a huge must, but I would like to try both of them. I had tried on numerous rompers before when I go shopping, but I haven't found a flattering pair. I feel like rompers look best on tall people and since I am only 5"4 ish, it is hard to find a nice pair. I do like this one though. Bustiers are another item I want to own and wear. They just look so cute and I love all the ways you can style them!

I really wish I could write more for this post, but I want to save my vacation recap and back to school experience for a separate post coming up soon. I just feel like I have so much to say that it would be best for me to write about it in another post. Plus, I'll have the weekend to organize my photos and plan out what to write!

What were your feelings about your first days of school?
Did any of you go on any cool vacations?

    1. hehe.. That happens to me.. I think we change height depending on the time of day maybe?
      I'll answer this question in a comment on your blog as well just in case you don't see it here.

      I have tried a few items from f21 and I do think they are decent. (and really cute) I think it really depends on what you get. I have to be honest and say that it's hard to beat the quality of brand names such as nike. What I would recommend is going to Tj maxx or Marshalls and they have amazing deals on brand names there. I got 8 dollar shorts and 14 dollar nike sports bras there!! For shirts, I just use my old t-shirts hehe =)

    2. by decent I mean they work, but they don't have the "new" technologies. I personally prefer to go with the cheaper option whenever possible, but I do love the high quality stuff if I am able to afford it. =)

  25. thank u for the sweet comment :) followed you back. hope you're having a good day ahead dear
