Busy Bee

These past few days I have been keeping myself busy! Yesterday Daren and I finally bought our tickets to return home in the Philippines, and they are for this coming Monday. It is hard to believe we have been here almost 2 months already. I'm sad to be leaving because I will miss my family so much, but I am excited to return home and sleep in my own bed, continue school, and see my pup's!

Today I woke up to Roman being here! My mom needed me to babysit while she volunteered at my sister's school. Once she picked him up, my uncle took me to Super Walmart to buy some fabric. My little sister Amber asked me to make her Halloween costume..She is going to be a 50's poodle skirt girl, but instead of the poodle, she wants a black cat. I have made circle skirts before...But for some reason this one is messing with me! I am having the hardest time making a casing to put the elastic in because of the waist beings so round. After Walmart, we went to 2 thrift stores..At the first one I bought two sewing patterns from the 60's, and they are actually my size! At the last thrift store, we got a flat tire, but we got it fixed rather quickly! When we got home, Daren and I took photos.

I spent the remainder of my evening baking Daren's birthday cake. I made him a camera, and I even felt ambitious and made my own fondant using this recipe I found online. I will post photos later today! I think once we wake up we might go to the Casino or go to the movies. We'll see. =]

Outfit Details
Blank Tee - Forever 21
Skirt - Forever 21 (I swear I wear more than just F21 hahaah)
Boots - Reflections
Sunnies - Hollywood
Teddy Bear Necklace - It belonged to my grandmother

I never wear accessories I feel like I never match when I do, but I liked my necklace today! Here is a close up of it


  1. aw your little teddy bear necklace is really cute! leaving family behind seems like the hardest thing to do! i live only about 45 minutes away by car from my parents, but I totally get sad when I go home!
    have a safe trip back!

  2. i used to be the exact same way with jewelery. it gets me how some girls can just layer a million different pieces and look flawless, but as soon as i do it i feel ridiculous. i guess it's just too much for our styles!
    i think your f21 skirt is precious, and so what if you were there stuff all the time. the store is just that good.
    have a safe trip back to school. i can't even imagine how hard it is being that far from home! ohh and you have to leave that darling little brother too.:( so sad.

  3. Definitely sounds like you've been busy. And I can't believe you made a CAMERA cake?! Must post pictures!

    Hope you have a safe trip back! :)

    Thanks so much for stopping by!
