Weekly Love 2/27/12

This week was the first week back from school. Wow, the transition from vacation to school is rough when you're a second semester senior. I never thought I'd catch the senioritis but, I have a serious case. I've been trying to get myself out of it and was pushing myself to study for a math quiz I have tomorrow. But, I came on here to post - so much for reducing my procrastination. Anyways, beyond just suffering from intense laziness, I went on a field trip to a huge art museum this Thursday with my Spanish class and saw a lot of famous murals and artwork from famous Mexican artists. Also, I ran away from the pack to go find a few Monets. Claude Monet is definitely one of my favorite artists. Something about impressionism is so soothing. Then, on Friday, I drove with my parents to visit my sister until Saturday night. It was definitely great to catch up with her and meet her friends and "family" at college. I sadly won't be seeing her again until the end of the school year. Besides that, I've overeaten so much this week. The upcoming week will definitely be about reducing my food intake. I still feel like a ball after an overload of Korean food!
In terms of things I hauled, I didn't get too much. I was clearly pretty busy this week but, I managed to pick up a few things at the beginning of the week. I bought a Kenneth Cole "Sassy Sling Crossbody" from a local outlet in a pretty turquoise suede color. I thought it'd be the perfect size and color to bring out to college with me in the future. It was a pretty good steal at around forty dollars. I also picked up a pair of Calvin Klein tights from the outlets. There were two pairs of black tights with different types of patterns on them. I've been really into wearing skirts, tights, and boots so, they'll definitely come in handy. Besides that, I just bought a lot of pastries and chocolate croissants (favorite!) to bring home with me from my weekend trip! :)
On my wish list for this week is this watch (isn't it just gorgeous??), and a couple of possible prom dress picks. Don't even get me started on this "prom-a." (prom + drama)

Girls With Glasses are Sexy too.

A lot of pictures, I know. But, I have a little story behind my sudden glasses embracing. I realized, somewhere between my dance moms marathon and my pilates workout, that it's silly for me to feel the way I do when I wear my glasses. Again, this will sound silly, but, I truly do get a huge confidence boost when I wear my contacts versus when I'm wearing glasses. Maybe it's because no one in the media is considered "pretty" while wearing glasses, I'm not completely sure. Yet, since I was 11 years old, I've been wearing contacts. Many people have no idea I have glasses even. But, in a few short months, I'm going to be in college, roaming both the campus and the dorms with my glasses on. Am I just going to lack confidence and feel awkward when this happens? I hope not. So, in preparation, I'm wearing my glasses more places and just getting used to the fact that girls who wear glasses can be beautiful too. Because, it's true. 

So, if you feel the same way I do when you make the glasses-contacts switch, join me! Embrace your glasses.

Tutorial: Everyday Grey Smokey Eye for Brown Eyes

I really love this look a lot! I had been experimenting with grey eyeshadows and came up with this look. I'd like to say I wore this look from about 10 am until 7 pm and it looked great throughout the entire time. So, if you're looking for a long wearing eyeshadow look, this may be fore you! I'd definitely recommend wearing this to any special occasion you'd like and if you lighten up the eyeliner, it's perfect for everyday.
