YES. I finally ordered my things from Forever 21 and Charlotte Russe…now commencing 5-10 days of impatiently waiting for my package to come. (I really, really, really hope it comes in before Mother’s Day because part of my purchases were for my dear mother) Wanna see what I ordered? WAIT TIL THEY COME. (surprises are sweeter when you wait longer…if you’re the one who has to wait)
Anyways, off topic again. This post isn’t about what I bought online (B-O-R-I-N-G). Nope. I went back to my friend’s house today and we had a photo shoot. (believe me, it’s not as easy as you think it is…so many freaking changes) BEWARE: ginormous amounts of images (FUN FUN FUN)
One slight problem: I’ll post up the brands of the clothes we’re wearing in a separate post later, error on my side, forgot to gather the brands as we took the pictures.

Oh and let me distinguish us. I’m the one with super-short hair (and mainly B&W outfits), Jen’s the one who’s wearing tank tops, and Lauren’s the one with the headphones or long-ish hair. If that’s still too confusing, check out our individuals in Photo set #1 and from left to right: Ash (me), Lauren, and Jen.
Photo set #1: Boy Bands Are So Over. It’s All About the Girls.

Photo set #3: The Couch Scene
Photo set #4: “Girly” is a Very Vague Term

Such a true quote. Today I had to go to my friend’s house to work on a geometry project (and on spring break too!) in which we have to construct a chair made of ONLY cardboard and glue. Oh and it has to hold at least 150 lbs. And we haven’t started on it until today (I know, I know, we’re such horrible procrastinators…shame on us) But we’re almost completed, aren’t you proud? (What, do you want photographic proof? FINE. Come back tomorrow, my phone’s screwing with me right now)
After two weeks of working on a project, you know whether it will work or not.

As surprising as it was, it was actually quite fun due to the fact that I was working with two of my best friends and music was blasting from my friend’s pro stereo system (her dad has legit DJ equipment) and we were motivated by the promise of going to Cue if we were at least 75% done with the project by 3:30. Which we did. More than 75%, more like 85%. The only problem is the support and we ran out of glue sticks for the hot glue gun (Again, procrastination = lack of supplies) so we did go to Cue (You know, the fun photo place where you go in a booth with a green screen and you take a few pictures, decorate ’em, print ’em out, and take ’em home for about $10 a pop? Yeah. That place) and, of course, it was GREAT. (Think 5% pictures, 85% failing at that one claw machine, and 10% eating delicious crepes and dancing along to Korean songs playing in the cafe…at least my friends did while I pretended not to know them. But hey, we got 4 sheets of photos, great right?)
In addition to that, I was shopping at Target (again) and I MAY be going crazy. I bought not one, but THREE floral looking items there…my one saving grace: they look vintage enough to pass for something I would wear. And believe it or not, two of those things are from the girl’s section, not Juniors, but girls. And they’re size 12…BUT HEY. I CAN STILL FIT INTO A SMALL AT THE JUNIORS SECTION ALRIGHT? (no, in case you’re wondering, I’m NOT anorexic nor do I have an eating disorder, I am naturally small, not tiny, but merely small, and believe me, sometimes it’s frustrating when I see the perfect dress but they don’t carry it in my size. And blame it on the genes, my mother’s small too, at least I’m average-ish height. 5’3 at 102lbs. all good, right?)
(And believe me, the pants fit better than they look)
Now for the BEST news (best for last!) Kat Madamba recently posted up a new video on her YouTube channel and it’s a basic DIY-your-shirt thing and I gave it a spin on my “tshirt-turned-pajama” and it rocked SO much I actually wear my Little Miss Stubborn shirt out more. Hell to the YEAH. Don’t thank me, thank HER. Oh and see her beast pictures (yes, even more beast than mine)

And then Kat’s pic. Told ya, more pro then I am. She’s careful while I just snip, snip, snip away at my poor little shirt.
