First Week of DORMIN'

Me and my friends in Brooklyn!

I've been living in the city for a week, getting settled in and making friends. My classes start on Monday and I'm super anxious. Some of my friends have come to visit me from home, but I am really enjoying calling my dorm my new home.

Things I Love This Week!

This week has consisted of:
♥ orientation lectures, ♥ watching project runway in the laundry room, ♥ jerry springer in the cafeteria, ♥ mexican food, ♥ pinkberry, ♥ subway rides, ♥ boat tours, ♥ organizing,
laughing, ♥ singing, ♥ mamabird, ♥ coffee, ♥ jamba juice, ♥ loungin', ♥ diner food, ♥ union square, ♥ dancing, ♥ shopping, ♥ video chatting, ♥ dressing up, ♥ talking, ♥ tim gunn bobbleheads, ♥ thrift stores, ♥ brooklyn, ♥ planning, ♥ open mic nights, ♥ getting kicked out of karaoke bars, ♥ shoes, ♥ buying a rug, ♥ running in the rain in heels, ♥ dreaming, ♥ going out on the town, ♥ pizza, and ♥ a LOT of walking.
And so far I love every minute of it.
I'm embracing the changes in my life! But holding on to my old friends and making sure I don't forget myself.
I'm staying open to new experiences and I love all my new friends.

What are you lov-lov-loving this week?!

Style Crush: Marla Singer

Sorry for the lack of posts lately! I've been super-busy getting ready for school and being with my friends before we all split for schoooool.

Now, don't get me wrong, I love summer. I'm in love with summer. I would love to marry the wonderful season of summer. I would love for it to last forever. But in my opinion, it is autumn that has the best fashion. And this fall fashion season, I'm lookin' to Marla Singer for some style inspiration.

Helena Bonham Carter is one of my favorite actresses. She played Marla Singer, the twisted love interest of Tyler Durden in the 1999 movie Fight Club. She's a fantastic character in what is both one of my favorite books and favorite movies...I thought that with all of the gothy and messy looking lines coming up for fall, Marla could provide some inspiration.

She's like a bad-ass Audrey Hepburn.

Marla Singer: I got this dress at a thrift store for one dollar.
Narrator: It was worth every penny.
Marla Singer: It's a bridesmaid's dress. Someone loved it intensely for one day, and then tossed it. Like a Christmas tree. So special. Then, bam, it's on the side of the road.

Narrator: When people think you're dying, they really, really listen to you, instead of just...
Marla Singer: - instead of just waiting for their turn to speak?

So awesome.

In other news, I move into my dorm in three days. Yay, college!!!

Astrology: Mystic Medusa

I've been lurking on the website Mystic Medusa a bit lately and I really like it. The people who comment on it seem to really know what they are talking about. There are some interesting, articles and the comments are often pretty hilarious. If you're into astrology I definitely recommend checking it out. I've always been pretty into it, I find most people's signs to be right on. I don't live my life by horoscopes but I do think it's interesting to take them into consideration sometimes, especially in retrospect. It can be cool to see if they are right on or way off.
I am a Sagittarius and I think that most of the personality traits, etc. that come along with being a Sagittarius definitely line up with me. For example: really optimistic, loves traveling, thinks big, gets bored easily, can be brutally honest.

I love Hello Kitty :]

There are tons of cool astrology sites on the interwebs.
I found this a while ago; How to Spot a Sagittarius, etc. They are all pretty funny, especially if you know what signs you and your friends are:

And the always fabulous Gala Darling wrote this waaaay back in April 2008:
I think it's great and the outfits are awesome. I've been wanting paper crane jewelry since I first read this! And I am toootally all about boots! :]

So what do you think about Astrology? And what's yo sign? ;]


Nikkidee! :]
