no communication

you have your good and bad thrifting days. had a not so great one at salvation army on friday. (found nothing good, and walked around with a swollen toe! : [) the last friday of every month is 50% off everything. left with two belts for a $1 each. they were needed, but not really, but i'm glad i bought them.
passed by urban outfitters and got this hat for $10. at the salvation army, i thought, "man, i bet i'll find something better at urban outfitters than here"
i didn't give up though, the thrifting trip to goodwill today totally made up for yesterday! got two vintage victoria secret nightgowns (?).
almost ready for florida/the bahamas! hat, maxi, bathing suit, travel bag, storage/luggage check! all i need is film and waterproof cameras. got the blue plaid one on the left for $4.99 each from the urban outfitters website! what a steal. unfortunately, bathing suits from UO don't have padding for the bust, so i bought some from ebay. i hope they turn out ok!
got this harajuku lovers train case and brush roll on a whim because i didn't want to spend $51.52 on this too cute and perfect train case by paul & joe that used to be on the urban outfitters website. got both plus tax and shipping under the price for the paul & joe one! i'm such a cheap-ass -_-
got surprisingly good samples this time. the samples they usually offer are meh. really loving the Too Faced bronzer in Sun Bunny. when i first tried it, it was love! i've used it 3-4 times and there's still product left! can't wait to try the primer!

too much garlic

went to the gilroy garlic festival again : ] it was nice and foggy in the morning and cleared up quickly.
the food in order: garlic fries, roasted almond(?) garlic ice cream with caramel, strawberry banana and peach smoothie, garlic bread, and ribs!
geez louieeezz, i knew cvs was expensive, but $34 for only 6 things?! i'm such a cheapie...
got glycerin and a small spray bottle to make homemade mixing medium (1/4 of glycerin, 3/4 water). it sorta helps take the powdery look of powder foundation away, but it's still a bit matte for my taste. it also makes my skin feel sticky : [. but i can't wait to use it for eyeshadows.
the finished product:

wanted to try a powder foundation since it's summer. got maybelline's purestay powder foundation in buff. it's definitely too light as seen here:gah! : [

so summer

watched "Inception" on Friday and ate these delicious pretzels with cheese sauce. SOOO good!
what i wore:
urbanoutfitters bodysuit and forever21 skirt.
man, webcams are so much easier and look better!

the hot dogs were delicious!

ahhh Target! a girl's dream! fashion, food, and makeup all in one?! definitely one of my favorite stores to go to. got a much needed organizer for my receipts (i love organization!!! it makes me so happy to look at it! -_-), sandals on clearance, and a tinted moisturizer.
got this Sonia KashukRadiant Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 15. bareminerals gives me itchy rashes on my face : [! that bummed me out because i really liked how it made my face look, all glowy and even. this tinted moisturizer is pretty good though. it evens out my skin tone, gives a nice dewy look, and even though it's a tad bit lighter, it blends in nicely.
