Today was my birthday! Long weekend, bbqed, partied in the city last night, fun times. This outfit was from last week, we got an email at work regarding our dress code, which is still casual but they reiterated the fact that we can't wearing anything that hits above the knee (there were a couple of knees showing that day).. so I came up with this for work. I'm cutting it close because it's not actually long enough but really, who wears stuff below the knee at our age? And I'm super short, so it just makes me look shorter. They didn't hassle me about it so I'll have to find more stuff to wear for the summer.
Tired now.. need to recharge. Off to Phoenix for a big volleyball tournament.. hopefully I don't melt because of the heat.

Currently relaxing in my basement as it seems to be the only place that isn't extremely hot in my house without that air conditioning on. Need to catch up on movies and shows, in particular the Lady Gaga Glee episode. I'm going to her concert sometime this summer, can't remember the date exactly, but it's pretty exciting since I have only been to one concert in my life. Other than that, I'm just trying to keep cool. My dog couldn't even handle the heat during her short walk, as you can see, this is how she coped with it after we got back to my house..

Am extremely exhausted after a weekend of hanging out with my college friends and drinking the night away after a long beach volleyball tournament. Currently I have no voice and I feel like a truck hit me. It's a wonderful feeling, the feeling of not being in shape.
Falling in love with these shoes.. versatile and comfortable, most likely you'll see me wearing them often. Did my hair today with a braid again, these pictures are actually after a whole day of having it in my hair. As far as my hair, it held up well considering a) i suck at braiding my own hair and b) my hair is so thick that braids look god awful in it.

I am totally loving Katy Perry's new song California Gurls ft. Snoop Dog. It's the perfect song to kick off the summer! I wish i reside on the golden coast so i can put my hands up and dance to this anthem haha.
After a long and tiring work week last week, I had a fun filled weekend. Saturday was spent strolling around the city with an old friend catching up on each other lives. Following that was family sunday. My cousins and I had a picnic in central park and finished with yummy gelato. Sidenote: the jersey girl in me was cringing at the thought that from now on I will have to tan on grass instead of sand.

Afterwards we all went sandals shopping and for some odd reason we all fell in love with different pairs of sandals in which each store had NONE in our sizes. I guess it just wasn't meant to be. Don't you hate when that happens, you finally found something you are willing to spend money for and they don't have your size. That's worst than not finding it at all. Because now it's just taunting you saying hey look at me oh wait you can't have me!
