Moving things in

Two new things just recently moved into my room...

yes that's right, my dreams came true!  two mirrored night stands a la Pottery Barn for get this....$144!!!  They were originally priced at $459 each, but my mom's business partner works at Pottery Barn Outlet, so she got a 40% discount off of the outlet price!  It's just too good to be true :] Now I'm looking for the odds and ends, lamps, and some sort of credenza/sideboard/dresser thing.  Hopefully I'll be able to find something soon.

and wait there is more...
I finally got Hungry!  Not litterally... THE BOOK, I started it and so far so good.  Crystal Renn is a true role model and so inspiring.  I also got The Secret to Teen Power.  Some of you might have heard of The Secret before, it's all about positive thinking and getting what you want in life.  Well they just came out with the Teen version, it's a very interesting concept and pretty powerful.

Today's events were okay, I went to a picnic in the park for my friend's birthday.  It was nice, but it just made me realize how much I'm not a people person.  I love to hang out with my friends, don't get me wrong, but most of the time I'd rather be at home doing something passive by myself.  That sounds a bit wallflowerish, but I'm such a introvert and always will be.  I can be talkative and outgoing when I want to be, on occasion, however you will most likely find me enjoying somebody else's jokes and conversation.  I'm definitely not an initiator.  I used to hate this quality in myself, but now I am learning to embrace it.  I think it makes me the person I am.

Well it's Sunday, which means tomorrow is Monday.  Another week has gone by, can you believe it?!  *Sigh* time isn't stopping for anybody these days.  Before you know it, it'll be Christmas..which in fact I have been seeing a lot of lately in stores.  Isn't it just a bit too early? Anyways, I'm off to get some shut eye before my 6:30 a.m. wake up call.  Yes, that's right, my school starts at 9:00, but I need that much time to get ready :] what can I say, a girl's gotta do, what a girl's gotta do...



  1. love the night stand!

    The Secret is such a good book. I am definatly going to keep my eye out for the Teen version!! im very interested in reading it.
    What is Hunger, about?

    Have a great day!

  2. Glad you're getting the stuff you want for your room. I'm a big fan of The Secret. It works.

  3. Being an introvert is not a bad thing in any way, shape, or form. I'll admit, I'm one as well - probably always will be. At times I'll start babbling away - but I truly prefer, and appreciate the quiet of my bedroom over large groups of people. I have read that most people who are creatve - writers, artists, and such - are afflicted by this; I guess because artistic activities are often of the solitary variety! :)

  4. I love "The Secret" .. I've read it 3 times and plan on reading it again (once all this stupid school work is done, blech!) such a powerful concept! I'd love to hear how you like these new books ya got!

    Love the night table!

  5. Ah $144 for Pottery Barn? Dang you know how to shop girly.
    I too have an introverted personality and can totally relate to liking to stay at home. It's just the way we are! No shame right? :)
    I hope you enjoy "Hungry", i've been wanting to read forever!

  6. I've always been a fan of plus-size models! There's a great site with many images of Crystal and other plus-size models here:

    They're all gorgeous.

    The site's forum also has thought-provoking discussions about body image and the media.

  7. Ooooh, I am currently decorating my new apt. Seeing such fabulous things on sale is so inspiring.

    Awesome! I am obsessed with reading. I hope you enjoy Hungry, that is def on my must read list... but my Barnes and Noble spending is getting a bit out of hand haha

    Have a wonderful day, gorgeous!
