My first Shipment!

Well, I did it, I shipped my little 2.5 lbs package - and boy oh boy do I have some goodies! Sadly I have no working cameras anywhere in my house, so we will have to do without pictures this round - next time! These are in order from least favorite to favorite (although I loved EVERYTHING)

Aude Eddie Ombre Top - Aqua/Smoke size 3

When this top came up on crazy sale, I could not wait to buy it, although I really wanted the lilac/petal color, I am really happy with this top. It's soft and sheer, form-fitting but not clingy. My only improvement would be to make it about 2 inches longer. It hits me right at the top of my pants, and I can't get away without an undershirt (which is no biggie, just an observation). If/when any of the lilac/petal ones come around I will definitely be purchasing one!

Fresh Karat Buttercup Headband - Yellow

This headband was exactly what I expected - a headband! lol. I do love it, although I don't think it's worth more than $5, so I wouldn't purchase another one unless it was on crazy sale. I do love that it doesn't slide around at all, I've been wearing this baby for about 7 hours now and it hasn't budged, I can hardly feel it!

Aude Madden Tank - Dandelion & Smoke size 2

I debated which brand I wanted to buy a couple of basic tanks from, and honestly, it came down to the price. For $12 a piece - you can't beat these Aude tanks. I'm going to snatch them up in every color. They are snuggly, soft and sheer enough to not add bulk, and thick enough to be worn alone (the darker one only). I love the colors I got, the Dadelion is a real soft yellow, and smoke is a foresty green, but with more a grey color. They're perfect. I would suggest going down a size if you are inbetween sizes. For the t-shirt by Aude I got the size 3, but these tanks are meant to be tighter, and they feel like they'll give as I wear them throughout the day.

Aude Meg Legging - Creme size 3

This purchase was a close third, I almost put it as my second, but they are so see-through, that's the ONLY flaw! I bought these with the intention of wearing them as pants. I decided that if they were see-through I would return them and get some other ones somewhere else. The best laid plans....I put these babies on and it's, "as soft as baby angels" (pollywog). I think that these were literally made out of clouds! I love the fit too, it's hard to find spandex that don't give you muffin top & don't fall down - these are them! I wish I had scored some in lilac as well!

Zensei Tote Bag - Navy

This was my cart-opener. I was actually looking for designer jeans and I stumbled upon this site, saw the current sale and fell in love with this bag! I couldn't be happier! It's got long straps, so I can wear it on one shoulder or across my chest. It's got 6, count them 6 deep outer pockets, and a spacious inside compartment. It is perfect for all my school items. I love the neutrality of it too, bags with flashy desgins I change out all the time, this one's a keeper!

&& finally.....drumroll please

Zensei Tulip Track Jacket - Night size 3

This was my *accidental* purchase. I actually purchased the linen version of this jacket, and size 3 was the biggest they had, so I went with it. When I got this one I was surprised that it fit with room to spare - turns out, RTC sent the wrong jacket by mistake - not a problem it's my favorite! It's incredibly soft, it's so light-weight, but sooo warm at the same time! I feel like wearing this all day, everyday! I wasn't too sure about the pattern at first, I don't wear anything with Chinese symbols or artistic prints, but this is beautiful. I think I could have pulled off a size 2 in this one, but I am going to stay with this one, it's a comfy/classy look :) get one if you can, so worth it!

Well girls, that's all for now. I'll be taking a bit of a shopping break for now, as I need to save up some moolah for baby's first Christmas! I'll be around, and, when I've got time, I'll be blogging. Keep in touch! Mwah!

Buenas Noches mis Lectores!

Estoy enamorado de M & M's Dark Chocolate Primas! Ellos son para morirse! :) Mmm. Estoy escribiendo en español, sí, ya sé! Pensé que sería apropiado, porque acaba de firmar para arriba para mi curso de español 2! Y, mi profesor me correo electrónico diciendo que estaba feliz de que estoy en su clase de nuevo. Yo también he decidido mi horario a su alrededor! Bueno, eso es todo por ahora, buenas noches a todos!

More RTC - Aude Meg Legging

Now you have to understand, I'm one of those people who advocates spandex-as-pants. I think that with the right body, and the right outfit, it looks super cute. So believe me when I tell you, I prayed about whether or not to buy these spandex, but I am sooo glad I did. :) Plus, they were only 15 bucks, and really, who says no to that?

Aude Meg Legging - Creme $68 $15


These leggings look so soft and comfy, and although I didn't get them for $12.87 (on crazy sale) I think it was worth the extra three bucks, just in case I decide to return them :) Also, they have a cute little shell button detail on the bottom, to make them a little different. This will be my first pair of white leggings, I'll let you know how the see-thruodometer reads ;). If I like these I will definitely buy the lilac ones when they come round again! Till my next purchase! Don't forget to visit redtagcrazy.com and get yourself something nice! :))

Inspiration Comes in the Most Peculiar Places

Last night, after all of the festivities and costumes and candy. After Dominic had left and the baby was in bed, when all was silent and calm - I started my homework. I know, I know, kind of a dumb climax, but you must understand a few things before I go on.
  • I have had this assignment for 1 month
  • the assignment is to write a 7-8 page paper on 2 chapters of the book of 1 Samuel
  • I suck at writing papers for Bible class
  • it's due Tuesday, 10pm
Needless to say, I was SOL. Nevertheless, I started my paper. The first page is an outline...and I was stuck. I worked it and reworked it, it just seemed like I was writing is cirlces. After an hour, I just gave up. I turned on the radio and went to hop on facebook. As I did, these were the lyrics I heard

"You don't need to give up
I am always on your side"

Needless to say, I got my butt right back to working on that outline - and I pumped it out And, it's good! Like, seriously I was divinely inspired. I am so blessed to feel God working in my life!

So then, to top it all off, I woke up this morning, and this was my verse of the day

"And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them." Romans 8:28


Long story short - I'm in a good mood :) I just want to leave you with this, make sure you listen to the chorus!
