chanel the wind and put it in a song

2B dress and jewelry, Bebe platform heels

Ok I admit it.. I am in love with everything 2b and Bebe! As you can probably tell by my wardrobe. I got some amazing deals this week I can't wait to share and an amazing outfit post tomorrow featuring my beautiful new Bebe suede thigh-high boots. I have always been a collector of Bebe shoes but now.. it's just madness. Hope you're having a good week! I'm helping EPI (Eyes Plus Inc) move this week so I am spread very thin but posting OFFICIALLY everyday. Or trying to. In fact it's 10pm here and I'm heading back over. Had to go home and make the boyfriend and Jeff dinner. Haven't seen them together at the apartment in a while. We've all been busy beavers.

where are you now


2b shirt and jewelry, H&M skirt, BEBE platforms, thrifted clutch

Ok I admit it I am 2 things: 1. a horrible blogger. 2. obsessed with all things 2b and BEBE. I love my two jobs but they have been keeping me really busy. So busy that even something as easy as blogging is difficult to fit in and it does make me a little sad but this week I am stepping it up. I will make it happen because this blog may not be much but it's a creative outlet that I need in my life. We will see how I do with this resolution! I love this outfit so much. Fall is coming! Not for Oahu, but regular people can rejoice! 2b is filled with dark colors and leather and this girl couldn't be happier. Az and I are making a strong effort to hang out a million times this week and when Az is around, major shooting happens. Stay tuned! Also.. my bday present should be here soon! My new lens! Thanks boyfriend.. best present you could have gotten me!

stumbled over myself

Charolette Russe top, Bebe necklace, 2B bracelet, Hollister jeans

I've been neglecting my blog and feel bad about it. I really wish there were more hours in the day to do everything you wanted to do in life. I love my jobs but I am finding out it is a lot harder than I thought it would be. I want to start shooting during my lunch breaks at Eyes Plus and I think next week I should start posting more. My birthday was on Tuesday and my boyfriend got me a new lens! (I broke mine a few weeks back and have been using a zoom lens so my pix suck when I shoot alone.) All in all, the birthday was great and my week continues. Hope you're all having a good one. Bebe shoe posts to come.. and I really want to make it to a triftstore next week. Az and I passed a big one last week while on our way to hang out!

fly the ocean in a silver plane

2B shirt and bracelet

Another busy weekend for me. I have yet to pick up the present I'm buying for myself at this jewelry store in Honolulu. Should be able to get it next saturday morning and post some pix for you. Back to Eyes Plus today but no Bebe tonight so it'll be great to relax, catch up on my blogs, and eat something that isn't out of a paper sack for once this week. Have a great monday!

this is the thing somebody told me a long time ago

Charolette Russe top

I love how when you finally get a bunch of time off you waste it sleeping. My body is probably happy though. My jobs have been a blast and but working at 2B has made it clear that my paycheck will never leave the store. I'm buying this amazing transfer dress from Bebe to wear on my birthday! It's perfect. I also have my eye on the (second) most amazing ring I've ever seen in Honolulu that might make it home with me on Thurdsay for hangout day with Az. Hope you're all having a great tuesday!

There Was Never Anywhere to go but Home

Thrifted knit sweater, Bebe jewelry

Hung out with Az yesterday and had a blast. We tore up Honolulu and spent the day shooting, eating at an amazing little Brazilian restaurant, and hitting up Ala Moana Mall. The Bebe there was epic and full of shoes I must acquire. Gotta jet and get ready for both jobs today! Tomorrow I'm going to spend some much needed time at the beach. We'll see if it actually happens this time.

We Used to Catch Fireflies in Mason Jars

2b Bebe platform boots, Bebe cherry platforms, 2b Bebe platform sandals

Just a little preview of the amazing things I've come across since starting my job.. we all know I'm a shoe girl!

When I've Lost All Care For the Things I Own, That's When I Miss You

Torn by Ronny Kobo printed dress, Bebe gold chain necklace, Neiman Marcus gold leaf necklace, Bebe platform sandals

I bought this dress over the weekend at Neiman's when I was on break. I originally thought it was a poncho and bought it without trying it on. To my surprise it is actually a super sexy one-shoulder creation. I also bought some amazing jewelry there including this leaf necklace. Some info about me.. I am in LOVE with leaf necklaces. I'll show off my ring later! Hope you had a great Monday!

All the Hardest Roads We Have to Walk Alone

2b Bebe tank and skirt, belt from some boutique in San Diego, earrings from Act II in La Mesa, CA, bracelet and ring from Charolette Russe

It's been a blast working at 2b Bebe and Eyes Plus this past few weeks but I am starting to realize some things: working at a mall is a bad idea but working at my favorite clothing store at a mall.. not good. I realize now that my Bebe paychecks are never leaving the mall. It may be a small mall but with stores like Saks (off the 5th) and Nine West surrounding you, well, I'm sure you understand. I do need to start blogging about my new finds though. That mall is full of amazing deals! Here are my new goals. I will learn to manage my time better and post ATLEAST every other day. Also, I will post new items I buy to show you because I have a lot of clothes and who knows when I'll ever get around to wearing them. You are my new shopping buddy! Hope you all had a great weekend!

If I Could Dream At All, It Would Be About You

H&M dress, belt from some boutique in SD, GoJane boots

Pretty productive day today. I woke up and shot pix with Az, then we headed to the beach for girl talk and tanning time, then work. It was a short day today and I only had to work one job so I got to come home and make dinner tonight. Better rest up though.. tomorrow I work both jobs and it's going to be a crazy day! I love this dress I bought at H&M back home in SD. I fell in love with the light pink version and bought it without question and found its hot purple twin some weeks later on sale while on another visit. It makes me feel like a princess and the boots were a nice badgirl twist. Have you ever liked an item to much you bought it in multiple colors? I seem to do this all the time! Sleepy time for me!

Listening to Fightless Bird, American Mouth

I guess this song was on a Twilight movie and while looking for the video I came across this other which included some beautiful quotes from the movie or book, I haven't read the books or seen the second movie so I'm not sure. You can thank this for the quote tonight. I thought it was pretty epic.

Not Swalled In the Sea


Forever 21 knit dress, hat from Long Beach, sun glasses from Ultra Beauty Supply in Chula Vista, Ca.

These pics were actually taken on Saturday morning before work but I've been so busy the last couple of days (more like weeks actually..) I haven't had a chance to post! The two jobs are great and have been keeping me occupied for sure! Hope you all had a great weekend!
