Shopaholic on a Sunday

So yeah. i went to the mall today. at like, 11.30am. with hadia and my dad. and i did some shopping. and i almost did an insaaanely amount of shopping too. but Daddykins was like, no, you dont NEED that. (i tried getting a pretty cheetah printed dog collar for my cat, but alas, it did not happen =( d’aww…)

I still managed more shopping than i intended to =P i mean, i just got some moolah from my uncle cuz of my brilliant O-level result, and my dad finally went and got it out of his bank account and gave it to me.

So…this is Ze, and this is my haul =D
(lydia from lizzie bennet diaries of youtube. go google it now. the best modern adaptation of a classic book i have EVERRR seen. i havent even finished it yet since the ban…oh well. im just lazy. but seriously, go check it out.)

Now, i just realized that for a Haul thingie, i should just put pictures of the tees i got….so excuse me while i go take some wonderful webcam photos with this ginormous laptop. LA LA LA…

phew, finally done! annoyingly enough someone set the camera to video mode, so i had to take the pictures over. which sucks for two reasons, one, i lost loads of time doing it, and i hate redoing stuff. and two, i took some very epic pics i was proud of =( oh well…these will simply have to do.

So heres the first shirt, a very summery, flowy, soft and pretty shirt. im thinking it’d even look cool if i wore a super tight full-sleeved beige or maybe black shirt underneath. Thatd look cool with those flowy sleeves. (cuz summers ending, and i got a new shirt, so i obviously want to wear it. and hence, the layers make it possible to wear in winter, yay! =3)

^i got this from Break Out, and i totally ADORE that store. i love the bright colors, and super peace-y and epicly gangster-ish clothes theyve got. And, needless to say, that goes wonderfully well with my very hippie and neon wardrobe ^_^

while i was snapping pics, i also took a few (as in two, duh.) shots of my room. just cuz. so yeah. heres one now, this is my super messy bookshelf. See how in the top shelf to the right, there are two (very precious) books of mine, sorta falling out? well, thats cuz underneath them (yeah, ive totally run out of space. =( im trying to get my parents to get me another bookshelf, but theyre like, theres no space in your room…ill make space for mah books, so pleeeeaase! >.< ) And that underneath book is HP and the Order of the Phoenix which is, and should be, totally shocking cuz its the harry potter book i hated the MOST as a kid. oh well. still rereading it. and that i havent everrr done either. hm =P oh, and infront of that is where i keep two stacks of jewelry boxes, but until i finish that book, and it goes back to its usual place, its staying a mess and yup, staying haphazardly like the rest of everything in my room.

aaaand now for the final and totally EPIC tee i got- a BATMAN ONE~! yaaaay~! finaaaallyyyyy! since im overly obsessed with batman, and am batman, its perfect ❤ especially since its neon and got sequins on it too =3 so totally me~ and obviously no one would suspect Batman to wear his own merchandise, hence my secret identity shall still be secret. Muahahahaha. All is going according to plan…(according to plaaaaaaan~! oh come on, from the Corpse Bride? the song sung by the parents? yeah. that.)

picture045 < i got this splash of neon epicness from Outfitters, by the way.

and now for the close up of the super sequin batman logo~

aaaand now for another random snapshot of my room- my closet! or, to be much more precise, my closet handle! But, oh, why would you talk a picture of your closet handle? Is it a cool carved griffin? Or perhaps the head of a hydra? naw, man. but it is coolio. Cuz its got a tie on it. i kid you not. see for yourself.

picture044

 

yeaaah, i know i did a super bad job tying this tie- but, in my defense, this tie is silk and soft, and super hard to tie properly cuz of it! so justified wonkyness. [i stole this particular tie from my dad, and it doesnt go with any of my own clothes, so i made my closet cool like this. Cuz ties are cool. as are bowties. (Dr.who anyone?)] But i really do need to get a neon green or pink or blue tie now….

so yeeessh, that was my haul. i know, still not as much shopping as id like to have done…next time, i shall go get a pair of adorable skinny jeans that were white with a cool block print kinda motif repeated all over it. There were two pink roses (one big, one small) and underneath the roses, i think, cuz i dont recall completely, was a yellow paisley design. so cute! plus, ive been meaning to get a pair of patterned jeans recently and white ones. so its a win win! plus they were on sale :O

as were the two shirts i got ^_^ even if im a shopaholic and i looove getting loads of clothes, i still do it economically =P so yeaaah.

thats about all. now i think i shall finally post a ramble post…but ive got nothing to ramble about at the moment (*gasp* reaaally??) so…oh wait, i know! i was rereading some older posts last night and-interrrupted by a phone call from ayesha…she just got back from an out of town debate without me =( but reasons why i didnt go in another separate post ^_^ -and it had a short random fun tidbit that i was supposed to post. an anecdote, kind of. so yeah, thats whats coming next. gosh, ive got nothing to do today =/

Peace!

DIY Custom PaperClips, Designs & Ideas

So today i did many things.

One of which was to FINALLY get Dan Brown’s Inferno in Hard-back, as my mother loves the author and was willing to pay for that. So thats GREAT.

While at SSB, i thought id also check out other books and maybe just maybe get Game of THrones book II (no idea what the name is =$ ) or just look around or maybe the Life of Pi. Unfortunately, as the book store has become eviler, they rearranged the book shelves. if they were something like this (birds eye view)=

I I I I I I
I I I I I I

before, now there something like THIS=

___ _____ _____ ______ _____ _____
___ _____ _____ ______ _____ _____ and it SUCKS. now i have no idea where the books i like are kept. and now youre wondering, ‘ok, great. so just ask those helpful guys who work there, duh.’ However, those guys are so not so helpful. they dont know where anything is kept in their own shop.

when i was assigned to read whuthering heights over the winter break for my literature class (an assignment i never did, btw) i spent a grand total of five minutes attempting to find the book. impatient as i am, i finally cracked and asked for “assistance”. It took them FIFTEEN minutes to circulate around the ENTIRE floor of the store (then it was two stories, now three. more on that LATER. funny tale, that…). all to come back to the shelf i had been sifting through. then another ten minutes to find the book. grr.

Soo yeah. i got the book and while i was at it, i was gonna get a clear paged folder in neon colors for my comics but due to surprise budget cuts as my brother got himself a new mouse (he installed an old video game that apparently requires a swivel mouse or something like that) so i had to leave them behind.

So instead i found post its, colorful thumbpins for my bulletin board, and PAPER CLIPS.

And here i am.

I remember WEEKS ago, on 9gag, i saw this cute picture to bend paper clips into heart shapes, and so i googled it, and found the pictures and used them to make a cute little pink heart paper clip that im using as a book mark now. (i love using paper clip bookmarks, their cute, colorful, jazz it up, and dont fall out easily =P )

since i had to google those pics only cuz i never saved them when i first saw them, and regretted that later, i saved them, and thought id post them here.

pink heart clips

And heres how to do it in an easy one two three step guide. well…its so easy that there IS no step three =D

How-to heart shaped paper clips intstuctns

and then, inspired, i searched for other shapes, like stars, or four leaved clovers or flowers, but couldnt find any =( when i do, they will most DEFINATELY be up here. so have no fear, i am on the hunt!

but i did find websites that sold already made fancy paper clips like leaf shaped ones (loved. very naruto =P not a big fan of that though. just find it tolerable NOW. before i used to hate it.) and speech bubbles, like in comics. those wouldve rocked. and loads of other designs too, like elephants, dogs, cats, swirly hearts, flowers, etc. just google for stuff like that.

i did however find some really cool ideas and came up with my own to design and customize a regularly shaped paper clip.

1. Like taking a jumbo paper clip and adding ribbons to one end to use as a griped reliabler bookmark or just to jazz up an assignment like so

simple bookmark paperclips

or something like this

BrillianglyBland-RibbonPaperclips

or as i found on another website, but didnt save the pic (sowwy), make a cute little bow and then loop that into position where these plain ribbons are tied, so it sticks out from the book your reader, or where ever else you decide to put it, like a card. and that particular blogger put buttons in the centre of the bows with some glue. i think DIRECTLY glueing the button, like a huge one, on the paper clip would also look cool.

or something very pre-school, or simple, with less hassle, would be to cut out two identical shapes on paper or stiffened fabric and cut out a cartoon character or design or letter or whatever and sandwhich the tip of the paper clip in between with glue.

or for the extremely lazy, or artistically challenged, or legit preschoolers as a fun little project to encourage reader (or other grades too. i just weally like kindergarten and preschool =3 ) use stickers with the same method =P

you could also add things like glitter, sequins, beads, and other gorgeously girly and artsy ideas =) even tiny little origami might work out great!

so yeaaaah. those are my little ideas and shit. gosh, this took so long to post, as the internet rebelled against this, and posting those photos was also pretty troublesome and nerve racking (esp. paired with the fluctuating helpfulness of the internet conection.. -.-” ). and as ive said, technology is not my forte =P

BUUUT yeaaaah, thats it, and great, im done WO-HOO!

freeeedooooommm

sleeppp…maybe. but ice cream first ❤

Burned Gorgeous Flower Embellishments

4873238162_372c120208Burned Gorgeous Flower Embellishments

I found this DIY project on how to make these, and honestly, its just SO EASY and i just ADORE the end result ❤ its cute, pretty, and so versatile that you could use this flower on anything! just click on the picture, and youll be leaded to the blog for instructions with pictures on hwo to recreate this beautiful invention.

Adding this flower onto an old dress, or belt, purse, or bag to make a huuuge difference and would make a something old seem much more new and festive. its just such a FUN idea. =D

i like it, cuz it involves absolutely no sewing skills- no matter how artsy i am, i cant sew ^_^ its easy enough to produce in a couple of minutes if you have all the equipment. i wanna make this now, and im thinking of adapting a small version and super gluing it to a pin to stick in my hair =) i also wanna make a big version for a corsage, so i could pin it to some of my purses and some scarfs too =) then i could also pin it onto my sash at school =)

sewing on or clipping on one of these pretty roses could totally change any outfit to a more dazzling, loud, elegant, fancy, formal, bold, attention grabbing, feminine element to it simply by using the right color, and size.

i do hope you guys try it, its just so INTERESTING that you all muuust =* but still, it seems cool, right? fun? something you just MUST try? …no, just me? ok… =S =P haha, i hope sharing this idea inspires others, as it does me =)

haha, and most exciting of all, it involves FIRE. eeek. i soooo wanna try it noooow! *___* yesh, i know im VERY violent =3
