Tied Together with a Smile

Photobucket

Hello!
Thank you all for your input on my last discussion post! I truly love reading all your thoughts! Some of you said that if they judge me wrongly because of my blog, then they're not truly my friends; and I think that's why I don't tell people because I don't have a lot of "true friends." The people who do know I trust completely. So I am content with my secrecy. Some of you also said that having your friends read your blog could change your content too, and that is true. The carefreeness and bliss I do enjoy from blogging is because it's secret! And I love it, and I love you all! :)

Onto today's outfit...

I've been wanting to take photos with my brick chimney for a while, but since I don't own a tripod I couldn't. The weather has been hot recently so the sun was glaring in my usual photo spot, so I dragged a trash can and a notebook and set up a makeshift tripod. I really should invest in one, especially since I'm going into photography, but I find them so cumbersome. I actually borrowed one for Saturday's wedding, but ended up not using it at all. But it'd be useful for outfit shots...

Somewhere in between realizing I pressed "off" on my alarm instead of "snooze" and running out the door, I always manage to make time to read a few blogs in the morning, usually while my flat iron is heating up or while I'm brushing my teeth. So it's sort of inevitable I ended up wearing my white-lace top today after seeing Jen's post and Diya's post.

Today is the last day of the quarter, and next week is finals week. I'm lucky that I only have two finals (Tuesday and Wednesday), because usually I overload myself and have four finals! Today was also supposed to be my last day at my internship, but I couldn't leave the kids just yet so I signed on for another quarter! Yay! I'm sort of relieved I've found a back-up plan if photography never works out...Having a day-care center would be so fulfilling and fun! The kids all loved my bow today!

I also wanted to share with you my recent obsession...Special K's Vanilla Almond + Honey Nut Cheerios! So amazing together! I never really eat breakfast, but lately I have been. I've also been eating this for snack and sometimes dinner...! In fact I think I'll go get some after this post... :) As you can see, I barely put any milk in my cereal; how do you eat yours?

I'm simultaneously uploading photos for the newly wed couple to see! I'll do a post with some photos soon, most likely after finals! These next few days are going to suck...but after, I'll be on spring break! Yay!

Until next post,
Jasmine

PS. Did you catch Lady Gaga's newest video?! I forced it into my morning routine this morning. Amazing as always! Her cigarette sunglasses were so awesome! I hated how much product placement there was in the video (ie. virgin mobile, polaroid, diet coke, etc.). My friends' degrading comments on her videos via facebook definitely reaffirmed my want to keep this blog secret. They just don't understand how amazing the fashion is in that video and all her other videos. Only you would know she wore McQueen in the last video!

  2. Cute outfit! I always adore that lace tank top and the bow is cute! I can't believe it's warm enough there to be prancing around in a tank top! Hahaha I totally laughed when I read that you used a garbage can to prop up your camera! You really should invest in a tripod! I got mine for $10 at Radio Shack, and it's not that big but good enough for outfit posts! Oh yummy I never thought about combining cereal but I think I'll try it soon! Lately I've become addicted to Chocolate Cheerios, you should try it!

  3. mmmm.... cereal is the best food invention. I love my kix's and reese's puffs are pretty awesome. I love your look today. It seems very summery and cute.

  4. Lace and sequins, YES!

    I don't like milk so I hardly put any in my cereal. I love Kashi. They have some yummy stuff in a box.
    Besides, I use soy milk.

    Tripods are useful at times...

    Your fence shadow photo is awesome, and I like my milk just about cover all the cereal.

  12. Oh jazzy, you've mastered the "art" of looking so adorable...it goes well into your favor. and here's my response to your previous post...i try to keep my blog (even Chictopia) a secret from other people too. and i also consider it as this other world of mine were I can feel and look my best withouth people criticizing me (because yeah, the bloggers are so nice). But with the release of the Preview magazing feature, I highly doubt it that i'll be able to enjoy my blog privacy anymore. oh sigh.
    :?

  13. Hiiii!

    Well. I've been "following" you on chictopia for a decade now, but I finallllly am following you in the "blogging" world.

    And I love your blog. Truly.
    I feel like I can relate to so much that you have said in your past few posts. Especially about the "relationship" part and the "loner" part.

    part of the reason why I love blogging is that all of the people here can connect with me in ways a lot of my friends in person can't understand. How many people can understand that a blog isn't narcissistic, but a way to express yourself and have your voice heard??

    Before I had started my chictopia blog, I told my friend about it excitedly because I was like, "Ohhh!!!! Look at all of these girls and their amazing clothes!". And then I started one...and she started one...and it feels so competitive :/. Maybe not to her..but to me it does. Like, this is sort of my little haven. My little corner of the world. So it's weird. Definitely.

    Anyways,
    I love your blog.

    Love always,
    magpie:)

  14. you're so adorable in that lace top and i can't believe you're not wearing a jacket! it's pouring buckets over here and i feel like i'm drowning haha.
    congrats on your online magazine feature, that is absolutely amazing and i'm so jealous! :D you're rising to fame, jasmine!

    and YESSSS LADY GAGA! i have to admit, after i watched it the first time my face was stuck in the "WTF WAS THAT" look. but despite the strangeness of it all i love it to death. the cigarette sunglasses were definitely my favorite! and i never like product placement in music videos either, they make it so obvious too. i guess it can't be helped, people need to make money! :P

  15. Ha, sorry about this, I commented on your last post, but your most recent one also caught my eye and I just wanted to congratulate you on your magazine feature ! I would DIE if I ever got the chance to write such an article ! Urgh, how I wish I could have made it to the Chictopia summit...
