Simply incredible!!! Bought so many great items this year. So instead of going to an outlet, we decided to do something entirely different. I've been to great mall and vacaville for the past 3 years on Black Friday and it's always crazy. The lines are super long, the stores are messy, and it's just too hectic. I usually just go for the rush, but I really wanted to actually find good deals this year so we decided to avoid an outlet. We left at 11pm to a local mall (Serramonte). We were one of the first ones in line for Foreign Exchange! Everything was buy 1 get 1 free so I purchased 2 satin tanks and 2 chiffon blouses. In my opinion, Foreign Exchange is pricey but really good quality. I paid about $50 for 4 good quality tops. Plus, they are the style I'm trying to move to :D Afterwards, we went to h&m. The line was CRAZY buy Viv really wanted something so we decided to just line up. Had to wait over an hour to pay. Bought a tonnn of items. Went to a couple other stores but there really wasn't anything there. Macy's was packed too :T We left for the Macy's next to a different/smaller local mall (Stonestown) instead. It was completely empty and SO neat!!!! We spent an hour or more there. I bought a fuzzy throw and a pillow for my mom. Then we waited in the car for a bit. Went to stonestown an hour before it opened. Was the 15th person in line for H&M so we got scratches! (containing $10-$300) Me and babe both only got $10 but oh well! We were lucky last year so it doesn't really matter :P I bought a few more items from h&m and from some other stores. Left relatively early b/c I was just so exhausted. Was planning to attend another local mall but I had enough for the day. My mom was at vacaville and picked up a couple of Juicy Couture items for me ^^ So in love! Babe & I came home at around 7am, ate, slept until 3pm, and chilled for the rest of the day. Babe actually bought a lot of stuff this year! Tons of cooking goods, jackets, tops, and etc. WE BOUGHT A FOOT MASSAGE THINGY! LOL It's amazing ^^.... Oh yeah, another reason I decided not to go to an outlet was b/c I didn't want to make babe wait in line for me all day :/ Chilled, ate dinner, & shopped online. I purchased 7 more items for $85! About $12 an item. (I bought 2 formal dresses, 3 satin tanks, a hoodie, & a sweater!!!) Eeeeek, can't wait for those to come. I'm offically satisfied. No shopping for... a month or two. (lets see how that goes -.-) Here are a few sneak peek photos ^^ I'll film a haul 2m ;D

Happy Thanksgiving everybody! ^^ There's so much i'm thankful for this year. My family, boyfriend, and friends are the absolute best. Through all the medical conditions I've gone through this year, i'm thankful that i'm finally recovering and adapting to the changes in my life. I'm thankful for food, shelter, love. I'm thankful for having so many great supporters! Overall, it has been an incredible year.
Today, I spent hours serving food to the less fortunate. It was an incredible way to start the day! Though there were one or two that weren't very appreciative, the majority were super happy. It was great seeing their appreciation. This one man teared up and nearly cried because he was so happy. He was homeless and so thankful for the meal. God, It was wonderful. It felt amazing giving back. One lady talked about how cold and hungry she was and how lonely she felt. She said that our meal made her holiday special. Overall, we fed 410 people. It felt incredible.
This year, I thanked the ones that have been there for me and gave back. This year is, by far, the best Thanksgiving ever. Have a lovely night, stay safe, have an incredible Black Friday, & enjoy time with your family and friends. Happy Thanksgiving guys :)

"There are distinct differences between male and female brains. Female brains have a larger Hippocampus. Which usually makes them better at attention and memory. Male brains have a bigger parietal cortex. Which helps when fending off an attack. Male brains confront challenges differently than female brains. Woman are hardwired to communicate with language, detail, empathy. Men, not so much. It doesn't mean that they are any less capable of emotion. They can talk about their feelings, it's just that… most of the time, they would really rather not."
(Sorry. I'm just so obsessed w/ Grey's Anatomy!)
"Ho Ho Ho... Merry Christmas!"
(This is proof that I have officially gone insane.)

Spent the morning and afternoon doing homework. Had hot pot with my fam at night! Then, me, Frank, Viv, & Richard went to the ice center in San Mateo. It's usually super empty there but they had this school fundraiser thing going on, so it was crowded yesterday )': Haven't skated since last winter so I was super excited! We skated from 8pm-9:30pm. It was super fun! They turned the lights off and everything. It was great ^^ Afterwards, we went to Target. I bought tons of baking products, 2 shirts for Hunter, Christmas cookie cutters, & etc. Went home and baked some blueberry muffins with babe :D Really fun and relaxed day. I needed this 3 day weekend :)
OOTD. Lazy again... threw on w/e... I just really wanted to wear legwarmers LOL Didn't do much to my hair.Me and Viv skating by LOL
I love this area! It looks so fall/winter like.

When someone is truly happy, they have at some point come to the realization that life isn't perfect. But in order to make it the best life possible, one must be willing to make the best out of each situation and look beyond all of the imperfections included in it. When someone is happy not everything in their life is perfect, but they have found the things in their life that makes their life seem perfect.Though we make plans, set goals for ourselves, and attempt to follow our dreams, we find out that not everything in our lives will go according as planned. One must soundly make the decision to look at life positively. One must be willing to move forward in times of turmoil, and eventually one day that person will realize what being happy in life really consists of.

Hey guys! I finally have the time to update again :) Hm.. this week has been crazy. I discovered a huge spider bite on my knee on Monday and it just kept growing... It started off as the size of the quarter and ended up growing to the size of my hand! (it covered my entire knee!!) I could barely walk on Wednesday. Since I have history of dangerous bites, I went to the doctors on Wednesday. They prescribed me this cream and it finally died down. It's still the size of a quarter right now, but at least it doesn't hurt anymore. Besides that, school has been crazy. Trying to finish college apps by next weekend! On Thursday (we got off of school at 1 and Friday was a holiday), me and babe stopped by my mom's salon so he could get a hair cut. Then, we went to Self Edge. Babes 18th birthday is next week, so I decided to buy him designer jeans :) I used the money I actually worked for! Feels real good ^^ Afterwards, we went home to nap. We woke up at around dinner time and ate at home with my family. At 9, me, frank, viv, richard, mei, & mikey went to Crepe Temptations for dessert! I tried nutella for the first time... LOL I can't believe I've never had it before! It was okay :P I'm not crazy in love, but it was good! Then we went back to our house and had game night. We played "The game of things". LOOL It was so funny. Played until midnight :)
Today, I woke up super early at around 10am. Watched TV in bed until 12ish! Babe left for work so I spent the morning on the computer, watching tv, cleaning, and etc. Started getting ready at around 3pm. We were supposed to go bowling, but it was packed ): Babe and I got starbucks and sat in the car, trying to think of somewhere to go. We ended up just shopping at Serramonte! I got these ADORABLE winter pj pants, packs of hot chocolate (peppermint, french vanilla, etc), a sweater (with a very cute back :D), & this red top. So in love!! Then, I started feeling real sick. I swear it's my medicine :T Once a month, I suddenly get really nauseous and weak. My insides felt all...weird. It's so uncomfortable. Ughhhhh. After several hours, I finally feel better. I didn't eat for 12 hours -.- Bleeeeh. I'm losing so much weight and breaking out from stress. I dropped down to 81 pounds again :T.... Trying to gain at least 7 pounds!! Stayed home the rest of the night. Hung out w/ babe :)
Pictures from the week:
Random outfit. I haven't been putting much effort into my outfits :T So lazy and tired! I just throw random stuff on LOL I promise I'll start putting more thought into my outfits and I'll film videos soon ^^ New black sweater!Oh yeah, I finally wore my oxfords. My feet were dyingggggggg -.- Hate breaking shoes in...

I think it's pretty obvious that I'm not very photogenic. However, these didn't come out as bad as I thought they would. I'm pretty satisfied! Here's my favorite one from the bunch :)Instagram version :P I like this one a lot better. It looks more vibrant which is more of how it really looks in person!
