For some apparent reason, this week has decided to shower me with loveliness and good days. I don't know why, for it should have every reason to do nothing but make me unhappy, but it might just be the best in college so far. On Monday, I opened my mailbox to see my new headphones, so I can finally, finally listen to my phone again when I'm walking to class. Yayy! Two hours later, I opened the mailbox to see THREE package slips! EEEE! I got a package from the dearest Jasmine and the swapping package from Hope! If this wasn't enough, my giant chair that I ordered with my new debit card came so now I have a cozy place in my room to sit that isn't an obnoxious desk chair or my bunk bed. Ah! It also rained Monday, so I got to wear my cozy sweater with a short dress and best of all, tights with boots! Seriously, wearing lots of layers makes me such a happy girl. They also served grilled cheese at lunch in the dining hall, a luxury I've experienced one since moving out. Monday was just a magical day!
Then, yesterday, I opened my mail box to find another package slipp!! And what was it? A package from Niklaas! Ahhh! He sent me a Disney princess snuggie which I immediately curled into and then fell onto my chair to read his letter, which, after not talking for 5 days and missing him lots, kind of made me tear up in places. Eeep. It was exciting. Today happens to be Wednesday, and guess what? I have another package slip in my pocket that I need to redeem for some more loveliness! Eee! I'm really hoping this streak of good days doesn't run out before my second chemistry test next week, which I'm trying not to freak out about, but I kind of am. I'm not afraid of doing badly in itself because I'm doing all I can, but I'm afraid of doing so badly that I have to drop it. If I get another 65 or under, then I have to drop it, and that would suck. Especially after all the hard work I'm doing! I have aced three quizzes out of five for the unit...so...that's good...right?
So this is a photoshoot from a while back. You can tell because I still have hair. Ha! I was totally inspired when I saw forever21's fall photoshoot appear online and observed a model with a denim vest, dress, and long scarf on. I had to imitate it and I completely love this! It feels so "me" to me, at least. I'm still trying to figure out what "me" style is, but this was definitely a "me" feeling kind of outfit. Hehe! Becca, if you're listening, I was very excited to look at these pictures and find Maggie elements ;). I bought this vest immediately after seeing the photoshoot at goodwill for 99 cents. And it's kind of perfect. I tweeted about forgetting it at home when I moved to college, and Niklaas sent it right over! What a boy! Snuggies and my long lost clothing!
I bet you're all sick of this dress...but, sorry, I'm not :). Sorrryyy! I like re-mixing. I do. Even though I haven't blogged for too long and this is my 41st outfit, I still have a lot of clothes I've never photographed so it makes me feel guilty when I pull out something old. But I LOVE this dress and it's turned into quite the conversation starter. I've had conversations with at least six girls who have told me they liked it. It's amazing! This scarf is one of my favorite purchases everrr. It's really fluffy and it's pink and matches everything. I love it! I find myself pulling on these shoes more and more lately. And here I ago again with mentioning him...he got me them, as you know. Add that to the list of wonderful things he does for me.
Well, I don't have too many pictures and I need to go write a lab report so I'm not up till two in the morning like I was last week working on it...so I'll leave you guys with some news and skeedaddle. I have a second sponsor as of yesterday and will be posting a giveaway here soon! When I get to 200 followers, I'm going to do a giveaway on my own too, so stay posted :)
