And we're back...

I kind of took an unexpected hiatus. Ooops.

Work has been crazy. A new person started working from MY office and let's just say it hasn't been a joy. I have been experiencing some intense headaches due to the fact that she wears heavy scented products. Needless to say, I can't wait to have my office back.

I have been doing good with my goal. I have contributed $500 towards my debt and $500 towards my savings. Go me! Things are going swimmingly. That is, until I visited the American Apparel website today. I had no idea that there was an American Apparel in my close proximity. Now I am itching to buy things! Summer is approaching and I need some cut new things.

One of my favorite style is the reverse tulip skirt/dress. I swoon when I see skirts and dresses in this style. I especially love when the skirts/dresses have pockets......I just blacked out thinking about tulip skirts with pockets. American Apparel has plenty of cute tulip style skirts in cotton that you can dress up or down. I really need to get my butt there.

Picture: a cute black tulip dress from ASOS. (Why do the majority of things I like have to be from Europe)

Here' the link for anyone luck enough to purchase it.

Want to share any tulip dresses or skirts? Please do!

Something that I find very amusing in the world is the idea of ownership. Especially with trends. I find if someone hears about it, finds its or wear it first they think they own it. If it's a trend, a piece of clothing or a certain store you can't own rights to it. You just can't.

I find it even more amusing when people bitch about it. They actually think someone ripped them off. It's like they can't fathom the idea that another person in the world enjoys the same thing or have a similar fashion sense? They are that much of a big deal, obviously everyone wants to be them.

It just goes to show how self-important some people think they are. The internet is a big place. Just because you think you did it first doesn't mean you did. Who are you to say someone is copying off of you. The moral of the story is: don't flatter yourself too much.

Personally, I think if you spend all your time thinking people are copying you, want to be you or are jealous of you, you are obviously a very shallow person. Unless someone is stealing your words, letter for letter, don't open your big mouth and complain about it.

Now onto a lighter topic.

I stumbled upon this site awhile back that I am sure most of you are aware of: I absolutely love it. I have already purchased three over sized gemstone rings. If you're anything like me and enjoy a deal you should check it out!
