Jamaican me crazy, mon!  First vacation of 2013, booked!  Yes, you guessed it, I'm headed to Jamaica.  I'm bummed that I will be missing a trip to LA because I haven't been home since end of September but I guess there's always Spring Break for that.  I can't wait to take a break from cold weather.  Yay!

Hope you guys have your vacations planned! XOXO

Reflecting on the past year.  So many things have happened in the last 12 months.  Started a new job. Bought a car. Interviewed for another job. Moved to a new place. Started a new job (yay)! Made new friends. Traveled to new places. Got a tattoo. Visited home and took care of mom. Restarted school. Survived a hurricane. Spent thanksgiving in the hospital working. Spent Christmas alone. Twelve months in a blink of an eye.

Some more highlights:

Oh the joys of street parking in New York
Barneys window display when I met Roxy
Discovered my new summer hangout (sorry Hamptons)
Found The Alamo!!
Star for a star :)
USC vs Syracuse with Club seats (coz that's how I roll, LOL)
A trip to LA is not complete without a stop at Umami burger
Mom recuperating from her surgery
Pen shopping at Muji
SUTURES!! (enough said)

Here's hoping the next 12 months will be as great as this year!  Wishing everyone a prosperous 2013!!

With finals looming over my head, I can't help but be stressed.  Acid, base, fluids, electrolytes, blah, blah, blah.  All I can think about is getting some shuteye after exams are over.  Oh, and 5 more months until bliss...

What are you thinking about this Saturday night? xoxo

Trying on my new shoes.

Madewell sweater, J Brand pants
Closeup of the #Louboutin shoes
 The shoes are not from this season but I have always wanted them.  I missed out on them when they first came out but luck happened to be on my side and I found a new pair on Ebay.  They weren't cheap BUT they were below retail and they were new - two things that I look for when doing any transactions on Ebay.

The rest of the outfit was what I wore to school - with my trusty J. Crew boots from the previous post and a grey scarf.  It wasn't cold enough for a jacket at 48 degrees so I kept it light.

Hope everyone is having a great night! XOXO

Had time to take pics before going to the mall - not to buy but to exchange something.  I hate returning stuff and have been feeling increasingly anxious.  Ugh, I really hate returning stuff.  Anyway, OOTD on this semi-cold December day.

Jeans: J Brand 811 Skinnies, Top: Forever21, Boots: J. Crew

Leather Jacket: All Saints
The boots and leather jacket are my fall/early winter staples.  The jeans are a great pop of color and you never go wrong with J Brand jeans in my opinion.  Hope everyone has a great December 5th!!

Fun stuff at school today!  I rarely say that so it must really be awesome right???  It was.  My hands are still a bit numb but it was worth it.  What did we do?  We learned how to suture!!  Yay!

We only learned the simple running and simple interrupted sutures.  Next week, we're going to learn more complicated ones.  I think I did a good job for my first time!  I can't wait to practice some more (and maybe even on real people!!!).

*For those animal activists, try not to have a conniption fit.  The piggy feet were synthetic (they probably should've given us human hands or heads but that would be too gruesome, like Walking Dead gruesome).  No animals were harmed during this exercise.  When you think about it, it's pretty unsanitary to actually practice on piggy feet from the grocery store/butcher shop.*


I love presents and the best ones are always the ones I get myself!  For my birthday, I decided to buy Frye boots.  I bought two pairs - Dark Brown and Cognac - and it took me a while to decide which one to keep.

After about a month of asking everyone and their mom, I decided to keep the Dark Brown pair.

Not the best picture but I do like them a lot, definitely a lot more than I like the Cognac.  It does help to have two pairs of cognac-colored boots already.  I'll post a complete outfit pic next time.  I also have another pair to post but that's another post for another day.

Do you like to buy yourself presents???  XOXO
