(anybody see the glitter in the shadow? that's my failure at trying to have a neat photo.)

Remember when i said i was to acquire at least one gorgeous thing a week? This was mine from last week.  

There i sat, just in my room, looking at my weak collection of rings. I want mooooore. I need mooooore. Then i got a little package sent from one of my grandmothers. She's big on the gaudy jewelry. I sifted through and found this little stunner. Isn't it cute? The garnet (my birthstone), the little blue stones, oh i just fell in love. and to think, i got it for free! So that's my gorgeous thing from last week. This week i haven't really been shopping or anything.. But since my birthday is next week, maybe I'll receive something gorgeous. 

On another side note, i'm heart-wrenchingly close to 50 followers. Expect at least 3 giveaways in the future: 
1) A certain little layout giveaway from a darling lady named Ella Press
2) A birthday giveaway -- I really don't enjoy the holidays, but i go all out for birthdays. And for my birthday, i'm planning on going thrifting and antiquing a little. And, one lucky reader (or maybe two, or three, depends on what i find!) will get something wonderful.
3) A 50 followers giveaway! It'll be in a while, after I hit 50 of course.

But just expect some things for you all! And i know that i've been a poor blogger, but after exams are through (i have them in a week or two) and after my school's musical auditions (i've been trying to prepare for these since the school year started -- It's Guys & Dolls, a favourite of mine, and i want the part of Adelaide so badly. I know i won't get it, but i might as well give it my all.) I'll be a lot less stressed and have some more free time.

Once again i just want to thank the wonderful followers and even the non-followers who gave me such wonderful strength and feedback on my first meet me post. I know i sound like a broken record/bad greeting card, but it means a lot. 

After i get off my lazy ass, there will be outfits. Among other things..

  1. That ring's so pretty, the colours are gorgeous :) Awh good luck with your exams and the musical auditions, hope you get the part!

    Jess xx

  2. Right now I am going through a lemonade obsession, but orange juice is probably much healthier than that. Good luck with everything!

  3. Wow, I love that about orange juice! How interesting. Orange is my favorite color, but I wouldn't wear it because it wouldn't suit me, but I can't wait to see it on you! Also, that ring is GORGEOUS !

  4. Hey!
    Yeah I think Orange is a tricky colour to pull off but its such a fab colour too. Look forward to seeing your new skirt! :)

  5. I read this, and remembered that I forgot to tell you that I liked your orange skirt when you were wearing it the other day. So... I like your orange skirt :)
    Love, Ella (Ogburn Konefal, in case you know any more Ellas.)

  6. I love this! I was looking through your posts - your style is impeccable, darling.


  7. Love the ring!
    Can't wait to see more of your outfits!


  8. dear katie,

    your ring is very sparkly and I like it a lot. <3

  9. You will so get that part! Trust me, I really wanted a part that I just wasn't sure I'd get but it I gave it my all and I got it! Just give it your all and think that you're going to get it and chances are you will!

    thanks for your ultra sweet comment!
    You are by far my favorite follower.


  10. I was popping by because your comment on my MCR-entitled post made me giggle so much (that album is so fricking good, I could explode) and ended up sticking around. Your blog is just so lovely! It's so nice finding new blogs that are not just a collection of pretty pictures but are funny, well-written and interesting too. Go you!

    I love that ring. And, true story, I love oranges and hate orange juice. WHAT ARE THE ODDS.

  11. That ring is amazing! I bet it truly catches the light when you wear it, a real show stopper?
    Oooh and good luck with the exams, I know how terrible they can be, but it's worth it in the end. ..Well that's what I keep telling myself anyway.


  12. Only a few days left until your exams are over? It's a heavy slog but just think how relaxed you'll feel afterwards! :) jazzy ♥

  13. yum, now i totally am craving a huge glass of OJ and some nice toast with jam. beauty of a ring and the shadow element worked girl! happy cheers ♥

  14. Well there's another thing we have in common, love for orange juice! (And not oranges). It has to be the good kind though, not the watered down kind. Yes I am an orange juice snob. :)
    Good luck in the Guys and Dolls audition! You'd be a perfect Adelaide and I'm not just saying that.

  15. that ring is gooorgeous! good luck in the auditions and let us know how you go x

  16. love that ring. x

    p.s. I'm having a giveaway on my blog for a fox tail if you'd like to check it out. xx

  17. that ring is soo cute!! nice post! :)


  18. wow, I love your blog! I'm now following! would love if you'd have a look at mine and follow back :)

  19. i cant get enough of orange juice too! if i wake up and theres none left, its going to be a bad day! haha.
    the ring is lovely, id lovely some vintage rings, but i dont wear jewellery much, i think i find it gets in the way! x

  20. oh wow I literally love this blog so much! I love rings like this but I always loose them when I take them off for violin practise (tragic..) x

  21. That's such a pretty ring! And I rather dislike orange juice but I force myself to drink it occasionally (that occasion usually being when I'm sick hehe) just because I know it's very beneficial to my health. But OJ reminds me of summer and oh my gosh I want summmer sooo badly right now!


I love comments.
