Spicy Shrimp Pasta…dinner in bed prepared for us, by us 🙂

Oh, and we even received a half Christmas miracle! I was finally able to get a part I’ve been needing for my car for a while and not only was it cheap, but a nice guy, who was a random customer in the store, offered to put it in immediately for us!

Allhamdulillah!! Praises Be!

Do you guys celebrate half-Christmas? If so, i’d love to hear what you guys did for your mid-year holiday!

I’m Back! + June Wishlist

Hello fellow fashionerrds, oh how I’ve missed ya!! I’ve been dealing with a lot, with graduation coming in August (along with a move to California immediately after), constant preparation for that, then there is summer school, and job transitions, and trying to run FS and everything in between. I’ve just been swamped! But I didn’t forget about you guys and I’m glad to be back to y’all and back to blogging. *sigh* There’s no place like home.

Here’s a couple items I’ve been lusting over this month….

WristCandy

Wrist Candy

Watches, bracelets and wrist candy of all sorts has really been calling out to me lately. I’ve always liked bracelets but haven’t really worn any in awhile. Recently they’ve just been calling out to me! I’m really loving chain bracelets and interesting stackable ones. Slave bracelets are also to die for, I’m looking to add some really interesting ones to my arsenal, REAL soon.

aliceandolivalacemaxi

Maxi Skirts

I’ve been loving these for a long time for sure. So sassy and easily chic, and usually quite comfortable. They have been a go-to in my arsenal thus far this summer and I need more, more, more! Oh & if someone wants to purchase the crotcheted Alice & Olivia number pictured above for me as an early graduation present, I wouldn’t be at all opposed.

 Fingers-Tattoo

Finger Tatts

I have been infatuated with these lately. I have two finger tatts that I want. Not nearly as extensive as the ones pictured above, though they are beautiful. I just want two little symbols, but I can’t wait to get ’em. Finger tatts are cool as shit! Add tattoos to the list of things I have to save for this summer. Oh well, what can I say, I love ink!

loosepants

Loose Pants

Sheer, printed, pleated, lightly more fitted, or totally wide and baggy, I love them all! These pants are all the rage and not to mention just as super comfortable and easily chic as maxi skirts..if not, dare I say it, even more so. I’ve been finding a lot of nice ones at thrift stores, but you can never have too many! I want a hefty collection of these before I move to Cali.

playsuits

Playsuits

Rompers, pantsuits, jumpsuits, and the like.I have a couple nice rompers, but not any jumpsuits yet (a fact that needs to change, SOON).  These things are to die for! Like so chic, need I say more?

June Wishlist !

Hi guys, I wanna share with you all some things I’m really wishing I had my paws on this month:

Image

Jeffery Campbell Night Walk Pumps

I adore these ! Especially in this mint color that is oh-so hot for the season right now. I could just see myself wearing these with an LBD out on the town one party-ful night. *sigh* dare to dream. They can be found on Solestruck.com for $169.95 and they are to die for in pink, also. One of these days…

Image

 Sparkle Polish

I am SUCH a fan of the glittery sparkle nail right now! The last time I did my nails I did them in pink sparkles and I love, love, loved the outcome. I think the next I wanna try is all silver sparkle…we shall see.

Image

Maxi Dresses

Ahhh maxi dresses, ill take one in every color (and pattern) please ! You can never have enough of ’em, especially the racerback style…so relaxed and cute at the same time. LOVE!

Image

Ombre’ Hair

Its still something I have been dying to try! Its sadly not in the budget right now though, which leads me to my next wish…

Image

Money, money, money !

Infinite amounts of cash would be ever so clutch right now! Especially because lately I have had the incessant yearning to shop till I drop, a yearning I have had to reluctantly deny as a woman on a strict budget. Oh how I wish I could spend spend spend with no regard to the responsibilites of life. But sadly this is not so, especially this month. One day my bags of money will come…one day. Maybe i’ll marry rich *shrugs*.

Lastly but not least I am wishing for…

Image

DEATH TO ALL CRICKETS!!!!

Okay before you think, she has gone off the deep end and this has nothing to do with fashion at all, I’m gonna just tell you…you’re right. But I just HAVE to share this story with you guys.*WARNING: A RANT WILL ENSUE* Okay, so I wake up yesterday morning a bit earlier than normal because I planned to shower and get ready then do a little reading before work and class. So its 7 in the morning and I’m just showering it up and what do I see when I look over at the sponge on the corner of my tub, but a ugly little cricket! Ewwwwwww!!!! I froze at first sight but then cut off the water and got out as I thought of a plan. Let me just let yall know that I HATE bugs. &one that hops AND flies???? A definite recipe for disaster, so my plan was to take two large cups and douse it so I could ring it down my tub. I do this and just as the cricket is about to go down the hole and away from me forever my stopper closes right in the way. AMAZING. Just my luck. So after freaking out some more I regroup and try to drown it with hot water. THAT didnt even work, because amazingly the stopper closed just enough to not let the cricket go down, but to let the water drain out. Ultimately I had to end up calling a friend of mine to kill it, with only minutes to spare before work. And to make matters worse I kept seeing crickets, dead and alive, all day. They were following me!!!! Yuck. I just want them all to die, even down to Jiminy. Yup, thats right I said it.

Okay….Rant. Over.

Well these are the things I deeply desire this month, what’s some things on you guys wishlist??? Let me know!

Until Next Time!!

New Ink !

Greetings All ! Saturday June 9th i got a new tattoo! Its one I have been wanting for a while.

Image

It is in Arabic and it means God is Love. I got this tattoo because it I wanted to remind myself that God is Love so that means that He loves me. Also it means that I should always operate in love. Love for myself, and love for humanity. I never want to develop a hatred for humanity no matter how evil the world gets because we are all God’s creation.

So yup! Thats my reasoning. The photo really doesn’t do it justice especially since its all red and swollen at the time, lol but maybe I will take a better pic once its all healed and post it.

What do you guys think? I personally love my new tattoo and what it stands for to me. Hopefully you guys agree.

Until Next Time!

XOXO Jaz’
