SAT Tomorrow...

Is it possible to be as nervous as I am now? Um.. I don't think, maybe not even in the future of all history! 

I hate how this test is one of the determining factors for college, and basically LIFE. Pressureeee.

I was calling one of my friends sorta freaking out haha

Football or Soccer?

Just a quick post :) I took this picture on the way back to Abu Dhabi from Dubai. Our soccer ("football") team had a game against two schools. We lost both, but we had several injured players.

More of Vigan

These are just a couple more pictures from when we went to Vigan, Philippines last month. It was a beautiful busy town. We went to Baluarte, which is this governor's zoo. It was cute. As you walked in you were welcomed by birds of various species, and then to the left there was a father and son giving a miniature pony a bath! Super cute :) During the day we rode around in these carriages and the tourer directed us to there different historical sites. 

Church that was across the street. Right in front were the carriages (if you can see them)

One of the birds that was in front of the Baluarte Zoo. I was surprised how they didn't fly away; this specific bird didn't have a rope around it's leg. 

Father and son bathing the miniature pony!

Another church

A cute purple truck I saw while in the cart:)

This guy makes pottery for a living! He uses a his leg to push the swirling thing (no idea what the name is). As you can imagine, his right calve if huge!

His pottery for the DAY

Looks for Spring

Spring is almost in the air! It's still freezing in Abu Dhabi, about 60ish degrees F (laugh all you want but that's pretty darn cold here). I've been doing homework for 2 hours and felt that I needed a quick break, and nothing says break like making a post. 

70s and 80s glamour has taken over the runways of Spring 2011 Fashion Week. The big hair, bell bottoms, and cat eye sunglasses, not to mention "belt purses" which is a stylish code name for fanny pack. Skinny jeans are so common nowadays, it is no longer a fashion statement. But if you're not into bell bottoms like me, just go for the wide leg pants/trousers/jeans that make you look taller.

70s Glamor 

When wearing wide legged pants don't get a pair that are too baggy, or else they will devour your frame. Especially with wide leg jeans, try and get a straight type leg. These pants are best pulled off with killer heels. 

I'm in love with fusion of 70s glam on the runways (or just 70s all the way!)

These dresses blew me away:

And lastly hair! I've had short hair since 9th grade. All the years before that I had long locks. The reason why I cut it was stupid and I regret it, and now I'm trying to grow it back. With all my failed attempts though, it's still short haha. Now I'm committed to growing it. I haven't cut it in about five months and it's grown about 3.5 inches! I'm hoping for it to look this T.H model or N.R model (both from Spring Fashion Week 2011)

There's No Place Like Home

In the Philippines I went shopping at local stores. At first I just wanted to see what the style of the stores were, but then I realized the clothes were stylish and a must buy! Not only that but things were nicely priced:) A shirt is about 900 PHP, which is 20 USD. 

I know I need to work on my photography skills :/ The bag looks plastic-like, but it's very soft pleather. 

This is the actual color of the bag. It comes with a long strap, so you can transform it into a messenger type or long shoulder bag. 

I love this shirt!
