True Friends vs. Best Friends

I should technically be doing my homework right now, but of course my heart’s in writing this entry.  For everyone in college, I think it’s fair to say we make good friends really quickly.  Recently, I discovered how easily they’re made and how easily they go.  I was really close to this one girl last year, so much that I considered her one of my best friends ever.  This year, however, she’s been distant to the extent of an acquaintance.  It’s sad to say that I find the friendship nearly unsalvageable at this point.  On the other hand, I’ve made several new friends whom I consider to be some of the most genuine and sweet people I’ve ever met.  One of them, in fact, is my photographer! :)  That’s led me to this conclusion, those who you may think to be a best friend may not necessarily be a true friend in the end, and those who may not be your best friend may indeed be a true friend.  Sometimes, we’re lucky enough to find both in one person, as I’ve found in Jen. :)

Anyway, on to photos.  I haven’t worn a dress in a long time – maybe because it’s really hard to jazz it up and create an outfit around one.  Today, I thought I’d give it a go.  I had several compliments on my outfit, so I think I might just wear dresses a little more often now. :)

After an inspiring art class, I felt the urge to try to be graceful in my pictures.  Unfortunately, I’ve failed miserably and look like I’m missing a limb. :P

CIMG3233Alright, I have a confession.  This is totally not my bike.  In fact, I don’t even know who’s it is.  But whoever’s it is, thank you so much for letting me use it as a prop for this picture. :)

Temptation.

So, before work today, I made a quick run around the mall to shop for some things I need.  Judging by the fact that I’ve been shopping all summer, need doesn’t seem to be the right word to use.  But, I have neglected to get summer footwear…yes, I haven’t managed to get a pair of decent flipflops or gladiator sandals until now.  Also, with the popularity of these lariat necklaces and bright statement ones, I couldn’t help but pass up on the Buy 10 for $10 deal at Claire’s.
I promise some jewelry pictures soon, but for now, my new comfy shoes!

I took this picture several days ago, and thought to myself, if I wore this on a date, I’d scare my date away with all the romanticism in the outfit!  Anyway, here’s the pic!

Okay, so last part of this multi-function entry!  I was at work today when I realized we had so many more markdowns on handbags!  My mom really needs to retire her little shoulder-strap handbag that I bought for her when I was…12…that now only 12-year-0lds and my mom, carry.

It looks better in person, the material.

In black and khaki, which color?

Similar to above, only different style.

Also in Black and Khaki.

After weighing the Pros and Cons of each bag, which is really function vs. style – Bag 1 is a zipper-close while Bag 2 is a snap-close, Bag 2 looks more stylish than Bag 1.  Opinions?  (These handbags come to about $12.00 with my discount! :))

i love the summer, especially now that i’m in college and there isn’t the stress of summer readings or standardized testing. now there’s just trips to the beach, grabbing lunch with friends, and beautiful, beautiful weather. actually i take that last one back. apparently it’s supposed to rain for the rest of July over here in jersey. cancel all my plans, i think i’ll be staying indoors. then again,when has the rain ever stopped me? ;)
