We Drew Our Own Constellations

Photobucket

Has it really been a whole week since the Chictopia 10 conference? Whew! This week went by super fast!! In this one week I've experienced the extremes of weather--snow, rain, and hot sunshine. Ridiculous. I'm actually really anxious for spring to arrive. I want it to be consistently warm, no more of this wishy-washy stuff. I feel like I don't have any spring things in my closet, but that can be easily fixed ;)

The umbrella that I had for years didn't make it through the nasty storm we had last month, so I've been on the hunt for a cute one. When I saw this umbrella in the Hershey's store in Times Square, I couldn't resist! I almost bought another from the M&Ms store too! Although now I regret not buying it...umbrellas can be accessories too! I've always wanted a clear one.

I don't really know why but everything changed for me after I got back from New York. In those four short days, my whole perspective on life changed, for the better I'd like to believe. Everything's just different; wait no, I think everything is the same. I'm different. I've just been in deep thought for the past few days. I'll probably write about it once I have it all figured out. Don't worry, it's nothing bad or serious. I'm just entering a new phase, that's all!

I got a package in the mail today from Taylor, of Auburn not Red! It contained two bow hair clips, one bow hairband, and a flower hair clip; and the sweetest note that made me a little teary. I was just being silly with that second photo; I could never pull that look off. Robert hates that trend anyway hehe, but I can't wait to (properly) wear them all! Thank you so much Taylor!!

There's not much to say today since it's been quite a lazy day. This morning I worked on my wedding photography contract for my client, then I took my brother out to lunch, and since then have just lounged around at home. Today is Robert's 21st birthday, but he's in Las Vegas with his family celebrating. I miss him like crazy. He and I already had a mini-celebration on Thursday, but I'm gonna take him out again on Monday so he can order his first alcoholic drink with me!

I have some things planned for this blog, so stay tuned! Hello to all my new followers! I hope you like it here :)

Until next post,
Jasmine

  4. Aw! You're so cute. You're very welcome! I'm so glad the bows found a good home where they will be worn and loved. :)

    Happy b'day to Robert. 21 is so fun!

    And I hear ya' on the weather. I went Spring shopping today and boy am I ready to wear it all! It didn't hurt that the weather was in the mid 60's but that won't last for long. *sigh*

  6. I love that umbrella! You know, I've always wanted a duck umbrella but I haven't found one yet :( A lot can happen in four days, especially with an experience as exciting and life-changing as being in NY! Phases like what you're going through is totally a part of growing up; you're not necessarily growing different, just adding to yourself :) Happy birthday to Robert! How exciting, I can't wait to go to Vegas when I turn 21 :)

  7. i like you, thanks for being so inspiring! I just recently started a blog because i wanted to find MY style. after the second post i was getting a little discouraged (i know, i was giving up to soon) because i thought it was pointless for someone who looks like ME to have style, or to be fashionable. i am a fashion goddess wanna be stuck in a XL body (working on that). When i found your blog today i was completely amazed at how awesome your style is, and how fashionably beautiful you are. I can be fashionable too!
    congrats on your grand prize! sounds like you had an amazing time! i bet NY was breath taking.. can't wait to visit someday too! i am excited to follow your blog!

  11. I can't wait to see you try out the new bows. Its strange and exciting to realize that you're moving on to a new phase in your life. I'm beginning to feel the same way and am too trying to figure it out. I hope Robert had a wonderful birthday.
