MC


Mariah Carey. I've been listening to her album, and her voice is AMAZING. But I have 2 problems with her:

[1] She's getting old, so please, please stop acting young and sexy. She does have curves and is still pretty but stop super-flaunting them. Your voice is beautiful enough. No need to slut around and attract all the attention to your body. See Beyonce, she's a strong woman with a wonderful voice, and yes she flaunts her body, but not in such a trampy way. There's a reason why people see her as a ditz. And Nick Cannon?

[2] Know what she should do about those large mounds on her chest? Introduce them. They are so scared of each other. It's like to negatives, the force just pushes them away.


But the songs are relaxing. She does have a soothing, angelic voice and I am wowed at her ability to reach those mega-high pitches and still be able to make a melody in tune. When I try, I feel like hell is escaping from me.

My favorite is the remake of "I Want to Know What Love Is"

Cold

I don't know if it has to do with my paleness or my sickliness, but I am so cold. It's supposedly 60 degrees today but I am freezing still. I wonder how I was able to survive the winters in the past..
But here's the juice of this blog:

SHOPPONG! Yes, pong. I dost not knoweth why. But here is my winter shopping list [Not Christmas, I doubt I'll be able to afford your presents]
I smell a trip to NY coming soon. Uniqlo does not ship to the US, but I really need to get myself some of their heat tech gear because I've done some research [reading other's blogs] and supposedly it works! And it's cheap! And I really like Uniqlo.

So
1. UNIQLO Heat Tech + Others
I have $140 allowance to spend at American Apparel. I, honestly, am sick of their clothes, well, it's more of an on/off love/hate relationship right now, because yes, I like their hoodies and all their clothes, almost, but I'm required to dress myself head to toe in AA clothing, and it requires me to be fashionable and creative. I only have so much creative juice in me. But I try on clothes at work [shh] and some of it is really warm.
2. American Apparel winter gear
Don't know if I should get it cause I'm not allowed to wear it when I'm working.. hmm
Unisex Nantucket Fleece Zip Hoody $52.00. It's warm!
They also have winter leggings and thermal stuff, which I should and should not get. I should not because I'm almost sure that Uniqlo stuff is better. But I should because I'm not allowed to wear Uniqlo in the store, American Apparel only. It is free though so I shall.
3. More Scarves
I recently found and bought a deep blue scarf from H&M, it was $10! It was warm, but also really light, and big so I could wrap it around my shoulders and head and neck lalala. But Jacqueline wakes up earlier than me for school, and she steals it. And she also steals the Northface jacket that my big, Yvonne gave me. Grr.
4. I shall splurge on a super warm winter coat.
I hope it will be light, because I hate the stiff heavy coats that prevent me from moving around gracefully, because according to my bf, I am graceful. Pshaw!! hahahaha. And I don't want to wear black.
5. Handy dandy winter accessories
Winter socks
Gloves
More warm hats
I know scarves were already mentioned, but heck, Scarves
Tights, I think I will forever be buying tights because mine keep ripping
Ear muffs? Hats are better
HEAD PHONES! Big pink ones! I want to be gangster again!
Boots, shoes.. oo, slippers.
My list sucks. I'm too poor. But I will get them.

They're Making A Book!


I WANT IT! It comes to the USA in January? Ugh. Must wait.

T SHIRTS!

Lately, I've been really dolled up. Well, not really dolled up, but I've been dressing up like a girl every single day because I am required to do so by American Apparel. I must be stylish, and according to one of my co-workers, because I don't really talk to anyone at all, I am successful every day I work there. Hurrah! My dress code consists of all American Apparel - colored tights, skirts, dresses. I don't have much, but it's enough for another 2 weeks worth of work..

ANYHOO, I miss being a tomboy-like kid. So I found this cool site with a bunch of wicked t-shirts. I shall refrain from buying anything until I have $1000 in my checking account. Right now I have about $800, but I owe the boyfriend $1000 for China. Haha! Word.

Kate Spade


$65? It's such a fun bracelet.. or is it a necklace? I don't know. But I could never afford to spend that much on a bracelet. I just like it. Maybe for now only though. I'm probably going to look back one day and think "Ugh. I used to have such bad taste".

Touching Photo



Her father was ordered to go to Iraq and she didn't want to let go, so she held onto his hand, even in formation and no one had the heart to pull her away.
