Failed Spring Rolls and Shopping Lockdown Gone Awry

Dear Readers,

I think I’m slowly dying for inability to go shopping. Really, seriously, I think it’s happening. On a side note, I don’t think my attempt at making fried spring rolls the other night helped me. They looked good, and tasted like mush. I am forever buying my spring rolls from now on 😦

I know I’m on shopping lockdown until spring break (3 weeks, WOO), but I may or may not have cheated this weekend when I went to Target to buy Valentine’s Day cards for my mom, dad and hair stylist…. I saw a hat. The most magical hat in the world, and I don’t do hats. I just don’t. I think I do now… It was only $15? Does that make it any better?

I’m trying to be responsible I swear, but I think I’m losing my mind a little bit. Once again, I blame the sad, crunchy on the outside, and soggy on the inside spring rolls. Really, this weekend/week has been quite full of fails and good things. I got my hair cut on Friday, see Ms. Witherspoon below. And then went to Ann Arbor to see a friend (he had the chance to be more than a friend)…. It was not so good. Nice guy, but he wouldn’t know how to make a move if it hit him over the head. and he’s a model/actor!!! You’d think he had an ego of some size to work with. No. And I just wasn’t that interested, he seemed to be lacking something… Oh, yes, a personality.

 

Sadly, my hair isn’t as naturally wavy, and my face is rounder and I can’t help but worry it makes my face look fat. But my roommate said it’s “edgy” (which is not a word in her vocabulary. She’s quite the little prepster you see, so I take it as quite a compliment).

More to come soon, I promise 🙂

Do Dating Rules Apply to Shopping Too?

Okay, obviously not all of them. I was thinking specifically of that one where supposedly (I’ve never tried it myself) if you hold off on sex for a few months, it’s even better when you do have it. I’m a fairly poor college student… My dad has informed me I get to go to Chicago, (oh the magical windy city, I love you) for my spring break. I’m going to not do ANY shopping until I go. I just decided this a few days ago, and to be totally honest, I’m dying inside already. So does shopping after an extended hiatus make it better? I’d like to think it will haha 🙂

Hi, my name is Lisa and I am a shopaholic.

I plan on going all over the city when I’m there: to Akira in Bucktown, to Topshop, and basically the whole miracle mile… My bank account is going to take a major hit, even if I pay off my credit card now, and my dad gives me a little helping out money. I’m mentally preparing. And I already am missing it.

So if you happen to know any way to sooth my shopping deprived soul, or any good places to go to in Chicago *wink wink* I’d really appreciate it.

[Enter Your New Obession] Welcome to the World of Leggings

Now I know leggings are sometimes the bitch of fashion; everyone makes fun of them at some point or another, but you know you own at least 3 pairs and love them, especially when no-ones looking. Am I right?

Well. This guy is an ingenious designer out of Australia (gotta love that country)! He’s been at it making creative leggings (and now dresses and skirts as well) for a few years, and finally starting to get a decent amount of recognition. Fair warning, they’re not cheap, but the quality of the fabric, and the patterns are top quality.

Please welcome Black Milk Clothing: I personally have 3 pairs of leggings and a dress. One of my friends got into this designer, and in literally two months she bought 2 skirts, 4 pairs of leggings, and a dress. OBSESSION.

The Clouds Dress – I own this one 🙂 The dress and skirt fabric is the same as the legging fabric, so let me tell you, it sucks in all the right places and just looks amazing overall! My one complaint is it tends to ride up (I’ve heard this can be solved with a cotton/jersey slip-type dress underneath).

Shattered Glass Grapes Leggings – They have these in a few colors, but the bright purple makes me happy; just the boost you need in the winter.

Ribs Black Swimsuit: Did I forget to mention they make swimsuits too? Welll, great news!  They do. People also wear these as body suits, with a skirt or jeans etc etc. I believe Ke$ha wore this exact one in a photoshoot actually…

Galaxy Green Leggings: I have these, LOVE them. The first time I wore them out, a drunk girl yelled after me saying “You’ve got a great ass! I love those! I want to touch your butt and I’m not even lesbian!!!” Her guy (friend? boyfriend?) holding her up says “Yeah, I wanna touch it too!”More Fair Warning: You WILL get hit on/called funny nicknames/get asked where you got these when wearing this brand. Not that it’s a bad thing, just feel like you should know. (In case you’re wondering, I was called ‘Space Pants Girl’ one night I wore these out).

Now fly! Zip that mouse over, at least go check it out, there’s some amazing stuff! (And I promise I’m not getting paid for showing off/ talking about Black Milk’s clothes). I also probably won’t be able to post anything until the weekend since I’ll be in Iowa doing research. So have a good week!!
