Skool daze part 1: Freakin Fantastic

Earlier I wrote a mock article for an application for an internship for (didn't get it...tis okay. I love the CF crew and Zephyr anyway. Maybe next fall, no?) about study tools. I raved about flashcards that come with a little hook. They are freakin fantastic. I just bought about 5 of them for Japanese vocab on the go! And I found the website where YOU can order them online.

I'm a huge fan of the Medium Ring 2x3 inch cards.

There are other size index cards holders and even notebooks with interchangeable pages. I mean really I could make these things myself but it's so nice to just buy them and use them whenever I want to.

These things are so convenient and cute (they come in pretty colors!). I love using a nice little container, but that's only ok if I want to play concentration (you remember that card game!) with my flashcards and match them. I want a quick review where I flip and go. I don't have to worry about 1. If I drop my cards will I be able to pick them all up? 2. Losing one random card or 3. Uneven flash cards (that irritates me SO MUCH). Having my words on a Myndology ring helps me to the Nth degree. Thought I should re-share my study tip. I gotta go study for my Japanese Chapter 11 quiz!

More study tips to come.

おやすみなっさい (goodnight!)

So hot right now.

"Armani dressed the wife

And Versace the mistress. " - Gianni Versace

Photos from Armani and Versace spring 2010 shows.

This is a quote from the book "House of Versace" by Deborah Ball. Both of the clothing brands have lots of personality but the sentence said by Gianni Versace sums it up pretty well. Armani does have a cool feel to it that I love, but Versace has more of a sense of youth and edginess. I do not like one more than the other, but I do like the quote. So hot.

I'm still sick and I'm still looking for spring looks to buy and I keep venturing into things that I can't afford. But really I am saving my money for an AMAZING trip to New Orleans.

Know any must see spots to see? Do you like Versace or Armani better? What are you excited to buy for spring?

Let me know!

I can't breathe (through my nose)

I'm sick! Not cool.

Want to know what is? Pre fall fabulousness.

Miu Miu = more preppy 60s. (See Louis Vuitton)

And Christian Dior (drool...) = tough 40s war chick meets high fashion movie starlet. Mr. Galliano can you do wrong? Ever???

And I thought I loved the LV pre-fall. Omg - I'm ready for fall already. Maybe I should backtrack a little and look at spring things.

I'm off to attempt to breathe through both nostrils and look for spring things!
