My Life

So as you all can see, I never deleted Highschool Confessional. I just couldn't bring myself to do it.
I put so much time and effort into this blog and it really affected how I look at social networking and what the internet could truly do for people.
So I thought I would keep you all posted with some other social networking things I have been doing with my life since Highschool Confessional...

I created a vlog.

I have found myself falling in love with video media and the great things youtube can do for a community. After watching several other youtube vlogs (one being meekakitty, my inspiration!) I have gained the courage to make one of my own.
Along with that, I also have a corresponding dailybooth, twitter and formspring.

Love you all who stuck by me. PLEASE check me out on any of these social networks (and watch my vlog!) so I can see how you are all doing.

Last blog...how bittersweet

Well, its my junior year and I am busy as ever. I barely have time to look decent in the mornings.

So after careful though and consideration, I am shutting down highschool confessional. This is a bittersweet kind of day indeed.

I have felt god working though my life so much, that I don't have time to worry about fashion or what not. I should be worrying about school work, getting into college, but most importantly serving him.

so thank you all for supporting me this long way. god bless.

for the last time (at least for now :P)...

Inspiration: Pants

This Saturday I am going on a huge shopping day with mi madre, so I am organizing my "inspiration book" with all the great pictures I have been finding. So this week I thought I would share :D
I have huge hips. Its unbelievable how big they are. anywho, I have been searching for the perfect pair of wide leg pants. :D
I have been having a new obsession with light denim, but rolled like so. I want to find a pair of "Mens fit" jeans...kind of like the ones Ellen Paige wore in Juno
Finally (this is my favorite pic) I want a pair of toned down Harlem style pants. Basically, her whole outfit above I want. Including the blazer.

All pics are courtesy of elle.com :D As for today...

pears, cheese and greens oh my!

This may be the last "food" post on my personal/fashion blog. But I am a little nervous about creating a new one and having alot of people look at one, but not the other. Any suggestions?
My midterms were this past week, and every day for lunch I made this delicious salad. I used half a pear and cut it into smallish chunks. Then I had Gorgonzola (or blue.) cheese and fat free balsamic vinaigrette dressing over a mix of romaine and spinach leaves. It was SO good, I practically licked the bowl.
Fashion post is coming you way! as for today...

mmmm, crisp and juicy

Here is some delishiousness for today. Sorry I haven't created a new blog for my foods of the year. midterms now -_- So...breakfeast was an oatmeal to go bar.

All my meals today aren't very vegan friendly, but you can certainley alternate them! I tried going vegiterian, and it just did not work out. Anywho, Lunch consisted of what I like to call a "very veggie burger". You see, I was not inspired to eat any bread today. We ran out of whole wheat, so I turned the 80 calorie boca vegan burger patties into the "buns" and used peppers, 1 piece of muenster, and lettuce as my inside. (Don't worry, I ate it with a fork and knife XD) but mmmmm! It was delish!
I have such a thing for veggie burgers. There just SO good.
Dinner was so delish. (fyi: that is my new word. Delish :D )I made leftover salmon (about 1/4 of a huge fillet) and some green beans :) I was so proud :) So that was the health for today. I need to start eating some more snacks though, like carrots and celery. As for today...

Deliciousness


Well, one of my goals of the new year is to have a healthy lifestyle. I want to maintain the healthy lifestyle I have already began building. So I decided to post my breakfast for today thanks to La Belle Vegan
Her recipe was a little different then mine, with some nuts and oat bran, but I am allergic to Peanuts and almonds, so I just stray away from nuts XD Check out her original recipe! Anywho, mine consisted of 1/2 cup of Quaker whole grain oats, some unmeasured ground cinnamon and allspice, some unmeasured light vanilla soy milk, and 1 chopped medium sized red apple.
I combined the oats and spices, then microwaved some of the soymilk to get it nice and warm for my oatmeal :) so I put that in, constantly making sure all the spices were blended, then I just threw the apples in. I didn't like how the apples were cold though, so I should have microwaved them before XD anywho, it turned out really well, since I found a solution to making the apples warm and all XD Latley I have been drinking so much green tea. I wanted to add more water to my diet, and green tea (I thought) would would be a great solution. Plus, unlike water, it has a ton of antioxidants to clear out my system :)
If I continue taking photos of my food, I may make a new blog for it...
btw: all the photos were taken by moi :) As for today...

April showers bring May flowers...



There is 7 inches of snow outside, and I am already longing for it to melt and spring to be here. Even though its a little late, I though I would post some of my favorite runway styles for this spring.

Well, The first photo on the left is courtesy of Style and the City, and even though its not a runway look, i though it caught the essence of what I want to portray in the spring. Very polished, but relaxed. Put together, but effortless. I love her long hair as well. Oh how I want long flowing locks...

The second photo (center) was seen on the Marc Jacobs catwalk during fashion week. I thought the bag truley a work of art. One thing I am trying to do is really define my wardrobe and buy more staples in clothing, but pops for accessories. This bag is basically fabulous.

The third photo I was quite a suprise. I have never been a huge fan of DVF until the show The City (see below post), so I have been paying attention to there runway much more carefully. I think this dress is so simple yet chic. I never can seem to find cute simple summer dresses. This will definetly be my model.

As for today...

As many of you may know, Whitney Ports new Hills spin-off show The City just aired a mere two weeks ago, and I already think it is fabulous. I just adore Whitney Port. Unlike Lauren Conrad, her ex co-worker and gossip partner, she is very focused on her work and reaching the top. She doesn't let relationships get in her way. I also love the fact that it is set in NYC instead of the west coast; it definetly adds a new aspect to all the MTV reality shows. The fashion is fantastic, and her job really intrigues me. Possible Career? Anyways, this show is a MUST see. As for today...

Thats so 90s...

Here is that fashion post I have been promising :D By far one of the biggest inside jokes between my friends and I is 80s/90s jackets. You know the type, with the colorful blocks, big puffy sleeves, and such. It basically began when I sported one to a field hockey game, and the rest was history. We have been searching the thrift stores to find such wondrous 90s jackets. So one I flipped open my February issue of Teen Vogue to pg. 81, I was in shock at the beautiful neon color of this 90s jacket :D So for this new year I dare you to...
1) add some spontaneous neons and brights in your wardrobe. They definetly brighten my day.
2) find a 90s jacket! And definetly sport it with some Raybans :D
3) Just have fun. My word of the year=spontaneous!

Hope you all have a fantastic new years!
