This is why I love thrift shops.

Where else could you get six legal pads (I love those things), five folders, and a super-expensive tie for $8.14?

Also, look at these AWESOME suspenders.

WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO ME?!

I check my inbox to see if I have any e-mails from the library… AND I DO. Woot woot! Time to read some e-books, cuz I just finishedΒ ReachedΒ by Ally Condie (I recommend all of her books, omg so amazing) and I need some new reading material.

But then when I go to check out the e-books, IT SAYS IT’S NOT READY TO CHECK OUT. What is this?!

Well, Harry Potter #2 was ready to check out, so I guess that’s a bright side.

But still! I want to read my mermaid story (don’t judge, I like mermaids. It all stemmed from my love of the show H2O. I watched all 3 seasons in less than a month [over summer break] So, obviously I like mermaids.)

Anyways, I’m off to go read the magicallness that is HP. And you know, procrastinate on my homework. Heh heh.

Until next time, Em πŸ™‚

P.S. ~ I did borrow this awesome sweatshirt from my friend (that I will soon be getting – If I ever get the e-mail that they’re ready to pick up)… so that’s good! I’ll wear in my next TAP video, so you all can see it. Yay!

Sweater Diaries #8

Today I went shopping and saw Snowflake Lane, which definitely did NOT live up to my expectations. I was expecting a parade type thing, and instead they just played music and some people were playing the drums (how you can play the drums to “What Makes You Beautiful,” I do not know) and everyone was honking their stupid noise makers right in my ear. On purpose (cough my brother cough)… yep, not my idea of a fun night. A night in with Skylar Astin via “Pitch Perfect”? Yep. Perfect night right there.

Anyways, my family and I went shopping and I got this cute peacoat at JCPenney because (a) I’ve needed/wanted a peacoat since, like, the 7th grade and (b) because it was on sale (yay boxing day and clearance sales!)

I also knit more of my sweater (I am seriously despising this thing now… I wish I was DONE already), and I got new knitting needles (47″ holy mustaches… super long but perfect for knitting a sweater!)

74 rows out of 80... almost there!

74 rows out of 80… almost there!

After I finish the 6 rows remaining, I will add the sleeves back into the mix, and continue knitting a (ginormous) sweater… the colorwork is definitely going to be fun, that’s for sure!

What do you consider yourself a “pro” at?

I don’t know if I’m a pro at any of these things, but I do love doing them, so…

1. Baking! And eating… hehe

2. Reading!

3. Shopping!

So what future jobs could come out of these hobbies, you ask?

1. Having my own bakery! Let’s face it, what’s better than cooking all day? And with all that cooking comes taste testing πŸ˜‰

2. Being a book rep! My mom’s friend is a book rep, which means she gives me Advance Reader Copy books (books which haven’t come out yet), and she gets to read books for a living. Pretty much.

3. Having my own clothes store – specifically a consignment store. My mom was telling me about her coworker that’s from England, who has never seen a consignment store before. She then proceeded to tell me that we should start a store together in England (her coworker and I, not my mom and I xD)… and then I thought, why not? It’d be super fun, and I would live in England. Plus, her coworker is really cute (and has an accent hehe)

Day 19: What you’re wearing

 

 

So, it’s not a big secret that I like consignment stores. Anywhere that you can get Converse for $10 and Nikes for $35 is my friend. So when I went to my favorite (aka the only one I go to) consignment store, and learned that almost everything was half off, I wanted to buy half of the store. But I didn’t. I got the shirt on the left for about $4.50 (regular $9, retail probably around $30) along with some Khaki capris for about $7.50 (regular $15, retail around $30). This shirt is really awesome because of the colors on the sleeves and neckline, and the fact that the sides are this mesh-type material, which is great for exercising (that word doesn’t look right).

The shorts on the right are one of my favorite pairs of shorts. I just love stripes. ‘Nuff said.

The jacket is one that I got at a Lululemon outlet store about 4 years ago. These retail for around $120, if not more, but I got this one for around $35. This is why I love outlet stores.
