white jeans are cool again

According to Seventeen Magazine, white jeans are back in style even after Labor Day. I'm worried about this so called "trend". I hope it doesn't stick around for long. I just find them troublesome and not worth the effort.

Anyway the IFB Project Weekly Roundup is  What's In Your Purse? and I thought I might take a crack at it. I've got the following

  1. Say YES to Carrots, carrot flavored chap stick
  2. Lemon scented hand sanitizer
  3. All natural green tea flavored mints from Trader Joes
  4. Sparkly purple wallet
  5. Coin purse
  6. Sunglasses
  7. Sunglasses case
  8. Bobby pins
  9. Emery board
  10. Hard Candy Lip gloss
  11. Floss
  12. Skullcandy headphones
  13. iPhone 3Gs
  14. Driving permit
  15. Mini Composition notebook
  16. Gold glitter gel pen
  17. L'Oreal Mascara
  18. Cherry flavored HALLs
  19. A Fruit Rollup
  20. Contact lense solution
  21. Vanilla scented body butter
  22. Cinnamon flavored 5 Gum
  23. House keys
  24. Contact lens case
  25. Planner
  26. Cell Phone charger 
  27. Sharpie Pen
I know. I carry way to much crap, but everything is 100% necessary. I don't like to be caught off guard

what to put my things in

I know I said that usually I buy my school bags from Lulus because I really like their selections, but this year I have to mix things because I absolutely adore the bags from Urban Outfitters. Buying bags for school is always an incredibly long process. I visit every store, every web site, every thrift store in town because if I don't buy a bag that I absolutely adore I end up shelling out another hundred to replace it mid semester.

The qualifications are as follows: large enough to carry all my school supplies and frivolous items, but small enough so that it doesn't make things extremely awkward in the insanely crowded hallways of my high school. And of course it has to be stylish enough to go with every outfit no matter what.

For the last two semesters I've bought hobo bags, totes, messenger bags, and purse. This year I'm thinking rucksack (preferably fur or corduroys) because I haven't actually carried a
backpack since I was twelve and it'd be a nice change of pace.

Here are a few of my favorites from Urban Outfitters.

Deena & Ozzy Colorblock Backpack
                                                 Deux Lux Boxy Buckled Backpack
                                                 Deux Lux Zip-Flap Corduroy Backpack

only eighteen more days of summer left

I know that counting down like this is going to reek havoc on my current mental condition, but I really can't help it. I just got back from a brilliant five day stay in Las Vegas and I'm already hating being back to my boring/mundane everyday life. 
I loved Las Vegas because 1) everywhere you go it's about seventy degrees inside 2) your day doesn't really start until about five o'clock 3) you can shut all the curtains in your hotel room and sleep until four and it's totally acceptable.

The shopping is fantastic -all those designer stores that I really can't afford to go to, but browse in anyway. And of course the night scene is exciting even though I'm not really old enough to enjoy it (boo!). 
We took in a few very excellent shows so if you are going to Vegas anytime soon I suggest you see The Lion King while it's still in production (it was really lovely) and the Cirque du Soleil show Ka! (a little hard to follow, but still incredibly cool and the cast is very talented).
