Today was my first day working at Nordstrom and I truly loved it. Getting a job was basically my excuse to not have to go back home for the summer. Basically, my job entails selling jewelry, styling displays and brainstorming (can’t give too much away)…
I decided to wear these awesome lace up heels but they were definitely not a good choice for a seven hour work day…
My mane is getting too hard to deal with someone stop me before I get a bob.

If you follow me on Twitter you probably know that I’m back in California, two weeks early. FIT was not what I expected at all. It was like a day camp. I felt my IQ dropping in those classrooms, it was ridiculous. And in the whole three weeks, I wouldve only made one skirt…I can make a skirt in about two hours. And my other class consisted of collaging and the highlight of it was “visiting the Prada store”. Uh..I can visit the Prada store whenever I want. All of this occurred on my birthday (July 9th) which was kind of a downer but I had a great time at Fig & Olive in the Meatpacking District and then saw Magic Mike. I did get a 75% refund from FIT and I wouldnt recommend anyone enroll in their precollege courses. I wouldve taken a college class but for some reason they wouldnt let me so I had gotten stuck with these remedial courses.
I wanted an authentic birthday cake with sprinkles and everything. Honestly, Carlo’s Bakery’s cake wasnt all that great. The place was cool to visit though.
Fig & Olive is definitely my favorite restaurant! If you ever get to go to any of the locations, you have to get the pot de creme, it’s the best dessert ever.
See what I did there with the title? Heheh. As a contrast to the crazy things I usually wear, I wanted to tone it down today. Both the top and the bottom are from Pins and Needles at Urban. I bought them both for $9.99 each but I found out later that the cami is $4.99 online. Urban has had some great pieces lately. Anywho, there were a ton of sales yesterday (Verameat, The Pokey Hat, Solestruck, and Motel Rocks) because apparently it was “national splurge day” which is something I’ve never even heard of…but hey, I’m not complaining!
I always feel the need to pair leopard with red so I went for this deep red lip. I used a lip stain by Smashbox in the color “sangria”. The stain itself is super drying and I was hoping it was more of a light tint but with the tinted lip balm, it’s actually a really nice lip color. Oh and my hair’s tucked into my blazer ’cause I’m super trendy and runway aware like that.
I picked up a few make up things while in Roseville the other day. I have Lime Crime’s “Cosmopop” but I’m not a fan of how it looks on my skin tone so I got this deeper tangerine shade by MAC called “Morange”. I also picked up another Hourglass liquid liner. I’ve tried so many liquid liners and this is definitely my favorite. It’s hard to use at first because it has such a fine tip but with practice it’s definitely worth it. The Bobbi Brown didn’t last me very long along with the Urban Decay and Kat Von D liquid liners. I like how this one has more of a matte finish and doesn’t flake. Lastly, I got MAC’s lip conditioner. I usually use Vaseline lip therapy but with lipsticks and stains, this Shea butter product is definitely a better choice.

P.S. I’m incredibly excited to get my hair done at the Butterfly Studio in NYC next month, I’m thinking about going a tad shorter.
