What I Wore

I bought this dress a couple of months ago, but haven’t worn it until today. It’s from the Victoria Beckham collection at my fave, Target. I loved the silhouette and the mod-ish look so I had to have it (and two others from her collection).

I paired it with black and white bangles and my new bag. A black straw circular purse that I picked up while thrifting in Little Rock, Arkansas last weekend. I’m a sucker for straw/wicker bags and I was happy to add this unique one to my collection.

April-What I’m into

Or rather what I was into in April. 🙂 I always plan to participate in this link up,  but I forget about it or lose track of time and just scrap the idea all together. Not this time! I am linking up for Leigh Kramer’s What I’m Into prompt

Reading– I only read two books in March. Actually if I’ve being honest, I started both of these in March, but finished them in April. Still counts!

I have been in love with Taraji Henson forever. I don’t watch Empire(it’s on my list), but I’ve watched her in so many tv/movies and have fallen in love with her personality from following her on social media. Her memoir, Around the Way Girl does not disappoint. It’s in her voice so it’s hilaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarious, but also does a very good job of telling her life’s story. I gave it 5 stars on Goodreads.
The second book I read was “I’m Judging you” by comedian/activist/blogger Luvvie Ajayi. I love her blog and enjoy her on social media, but I wasn’t a big fan of the book. It should’ve been a short read, but I could barely get into it. It started off strong and just petered out. I was hoping for a collection of essays that would make me laugh and give me something to think about, but it just fell flat on everything. It wasn’t a good book or a bad book. Just meh.

Watching– I recently reinstated my Funimation account. Funimation is like Netflix for anime and man have I got my money’s worth. I watched a lot last month but my favorites were Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid  and Interviews with Monster Girls.The latter being my favorite. It’s about monster girls trying  in a normal world trying to navigate high school life. It’s super cute!

Listening -KENDRICK LAMAR-DAMN!

End of category! That album is so damn good. I don’t have to skip a track. The entire album is great. I’m not even tired of Humble which has been playing EVERYWHERE!

Oot and aboot – I participated in a fashion show. The theme was Evolution of Fashion and I was privileged enough to have my vintage clothing on the runway. It was a great experience which I will blog about soon. I also got a new job! I’m a shop girl at the cutest shop in downtown Memphis.

Creating-NOTHING! Which I should definitely be doing. I did see a cute tutorial for mini pot planters on A Beautiful Mess.

Daydreaming-about leaving the city for a getaway! Lots of things have been getting in the way of that. But I am dreaming of escaping for a little bit and exploring a new city.

And a new car. Mine is on the fritz.  😦

So glad I posted in time to participate in this prompt. Check out what other bloggers were up to in April here!

Wishlist!

Happy holidays! Christmas is only a week away! I’ve completed the majority of my shopping, but still have a few things to pick up for my loved ones. Always last minute. Tsk, tsk! Here are a few things I’d be happy to see under my tree this year.

L to R, Top to Bottom

1. Sanrio x Tokidoki overnight bag-I love the Sanrio x Tokidoki mashups and usually get at least one thing from each collection. I’ve been drooling over the overnight bag. It would be perfect for my weekend and overnight trips.

2. Clone High-Remember this series that aired on MTV back in the day? I loved and still do love it! I have random episodes on a hard drive, but would love to own the actual DVD.

3. Memphis Skateland Tee-A shirt that shouts out my hometown AND includes the logo from one of the skating rinks I frequented as a child?! Sign me up for 3, please!

4. Sailor Mercury Figuarts figure-I plan on collecting all of the scouts, as they are released. Mercury is my favorite of the inner scouts! Since she was just released last month, she of course is on my list. I love that they included her signature mini computer.

5. Krobo quote bracelet-These beautiful bracelets are made by QuellyRue Designs. Each one is unique and is inscribed with one of 8 inspring quotes.

“Bring us the girl and wipe away the debt”

I started playing Bioshock Infinite months ago, but only just finished it this week. I can’t say enough good things about this game. Really enjoyable. The Bioshock Infinite universe  is beautiful, the story is brilliant, and the characters-I fell in love with them.  I finished it a couple of days ago, but I can’t stop thinking about the ending. So much that I’ve read forums, fan’s personal theories on the game, and followed a bunch of Infinite themed Pinterest boards. I’ve been obsessing over it. Now I want my own personal piece of Bioshock Infinite’s world. Luckily, talented people create and sell just what I want on these here internets.
