Sorry for the lack of posts. I just started school this week and it's been pretty hectic. This is just a list of pictures that I've been loving from this week, and of course, a little Tom Hardy here to spice it up haha. My next post is probably going to be either my favorite youtubers or a wishlist; we'll see how everything goes at school first. Please check back regularly! You never know when I'll update haha....oh school - jenny

These are runway photos from Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2012 line and Chanel Resort 2013 line. I absolutely love these two! I love the structured pieces and the color scheme of both. I heard that the trend for fall is black and gold and the other D&G pieces all are black and gold. I love the basic colours in the D&G line and how it creates that modern yet medieval-esque look. The Chanel clothes are just so cute and quirky! It's also structured like the D&G yet it's more feminine. -jenny

new in + current favorites

This isn't really an August favorites, but just some things I've been reaching to or loving this past couple of weeks.

1) One 'n Only Argan Oil Hair Treatment Spray (get yours here)
I have ombre-d hair so it's important for me to keep my ends pretty healthy and this does the job. I heard that argan oil is great for your hair so I thought I would pick this up when I went to Sally's the other day for some hair dye. It smells luxurious and it definitely gives my hair shine. It says that it leaves hair silky smooth and protects it from heat, and just as it says, it definitely makes my hair smooth. My hair doesn't feel oily and it's smooth throughout the whole day. 

2) Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment (get yours here)
This has gotten a lot of hype before. I've finally given in to buying this a couple months ago. I used to use the EOS lipbalm but I felt like it didn't really give me moisturized lips. This little guy was about $23 and I decided "why not" and bought it. I looooooove it. It makes my lips smooth and gives it a little shine. I love the lemonade-like scent it has too. Definitely recommend it and definitely worth the price, at least for me.

3) Spiked Rusty Gold Necklace (from Forever 21, but I can't find it online)
This is similar to Regal Rose's spike necklace. I was going to get the Regal Rose one but I thought this was very similar and a lot cheaper. I love it! It's definitely a statement piece. I love wearing this necklace with a plain v-neck or cotton shirt and a cardigan. It gives a sophisticated look to the simple outfit.

Now, this isn't a favorite becuase I just got this yesterday! I absolutely love this. I bought this from Zara becuase I needed a jacket for the fall. I've been contemplating what kind of jacket to get and decided this one was perfect. This jacket was definitely a splurge for me and I do not regret one penny. The length is perfect and I could practically live inside it. It's so soft and comfy, I just want fall to come already so I could wear this with my Doc Marten's or booties. -jenny

last days of summer

 Summer just seems to fly on by. I finally got my school supplies & books yesterday...can't believe I start senior year next week. I finally got my backpack in the mail! I got it from Urban Outfitters and it's the Kanken backpack. I mentioned this bag in my back to school post and I'm so excited to use this for the school year. My parents were freaking out about how small it is, but although I see why they would say that, I feel like it's a decent size. I recently took some green thrifted jeans and turned them into slasher shorts-esque shorts (like the ones from Nasty Gal). I think they turned out pretty well! It was definitely a challenge to get those spikes in place, but it was worth it. - jenny (p.s. excuse the amateur quality of these photos, my camera is pretty low quality..)

Hey guys! I just wanted to share this awesome song that's been on replay for me for the past week. This is a song called Barely Love You Too by Frank + Derol. If you guys didn't know before, Brandi Cyrus is in this group. And, if you guys don't know who I'm talking about, Brandi Cyrus is Miley Cyrus's sister! I can definitely see that the music gene runs in their family. Brandi and Codi Caracao formed this group after they bonded over their love for music. This is the only song they have out so far, but I'm excited for their next songs. I love the tune of the song and it's just a really easy listening song. I hope you guys like this song as much as I do :) -jenny
Check out Frank +  Derol here

Sorry for the lack of posts, I had no idea what my next post would be! I decided it's another inspiration post haha. I would make more photo posts, but my camera's quality is pretty sub-par. The other photo post took lots of time in the Photoshop department in order for it to look pretty decent. Maybe a photo post is in the future, who knows? Anyways, these are some pictures that I'm in love with this past week. Just simple yet dramatic. I might do another style spotlight post soon, we'll see.

this is my city

Hey guys! Here's the post I was talking about in last night's post. I went downtown with my friend to go back to school shopping, and it was absolutely a day well spent. I think after a few photo-blogs I'll get better haha. I decided to snap a few pictures of show you guys, I guess, "a day in the life of jenny". We went to lunch at Sweet Waters Tavern and oh my god, it was super delicious. I got the Trevi which had grilled chicken breast, beef steak tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, pesto mayonnaise, and sun-dried tomato and herb focaccia bread. I also had a side of french fries to  seal the deal. This whole meal was absolutely heavenly. Then we went on to about 4 hours of non-stop shopping. We popped into Urban Outfitters, Topshop, and Forever 21. My last picture shows the shoes that I've been dying to get from UO. I finally got it yesterday! There was a promotional deal for them; they're originally $14-16 each but two for $20! I love them! Maybe, if you guys want, a photo haul? Just leave suggestions in the comments and I'll gladly do them. Anyways, after UO we stopped by Sprinkles Cupcakes. I've never had their cupcakes, but often heard the hype for them. It was delicious! I loved the frosting. So, expect another post tomorrow and hope you liked this "day in the life..." type of post! - jenny

Hey guys, sorry for the lack of posts on the weekend. I think I might not be able to post frequently on weekends, y'know, since it is the weekend haha. Today's another inspiration day and you guessed it, all from tumblr. I've been loving floral lately (I've actually always loved it...) and I found absolutely beautiful pictures of them. These are just really lovely pictures and these make me calm and have a serene feel to them. School starts in about 2 weeks for me...& I definitely need to be calm haha, and peaceful. -jenny
