"winter just wasn't my season..."



  Hello all! How is everyone doing lately? I'm sitting in bed listening to my siblings talk and commenting on their conversation. I feel like it's real late right now but the truth is that I haven't been feeling well lately. As usual I've woken up before the sub comes up for the past two days. And only to be met with angry customers and complaining supervisors.  Anyways I'm going to bed since I only have 4 hours under my belt. Have a good night.

PS: to those who celebrate Easter; happy Easter!

that #Slytherin Chick

 My house is the Slytherin house. Yup, I like the cunning and the wit, hence why I love the Slytherin. Plus, who doesn't like the bad boy with a heart? I will admit that I have not watched all of the Harry Potter movies, but I will explain why.
  I become jittery just by knowing that Draco will be made into a Death Eater and Hermione will have to fight against him. So that comes onto the next topic. I am a Dramione shipper. Yup. I love them together and I read so much fanfiction about them that it's ridiculous. Anyways, I bought this badge last year and thought I'd lost it. Turns out it was in my desk drawer -- I knew I should have cleaned months before!  Well, enough of my rambling, have a great evening!

--Susy

PS: where should I put my badge?

"you shoot me down, but I won't fall..."

skirt; OLD NAVY / shirt; TJ MAXX / shoes H&M

  Well then, today was just a productive day. I cleaned my desk -- it was much needed, trust me -- and organized my clothes a bit. I also wore my new skirt and shirt that I bought on Tuesday. Isn't it cute? I don't usually go for the shirts with a lace back, but I really liked this one so I was like, oh why the heck not?!  

  Anyways, I'm going back to work tomorrow, my work week begins. Oh, goody! (Note the sarcasm.) Oh, and I've been watching the series Torhwood on Amazon Prime; I get unlimited -- free -- streaming! Yay.

--Susy

PS: does the outfit look good like this? this is the first time I've actually posted an outfit like this.

green & jean

shirt; HERITAGE 81 (F21) / skirt; F21 / boots; PAYLESS
 
 
 Well, doesn't this look hip-ish? No, the answer is that it doesn't but I really don't care.  I've been feeling really bad lately. Like physically. I think I'm getting the flu or a cold.. or it might be allergies. Anyways, the thing is that I wake up with body aches and a nagging head ache and it's getting old fast!
 
On the plus side, I've bough a few things. I know, I know, I'm selling things from my wardrobe, why am I buying more? I like to shop, so sue me!
 
Also, Im supposed to go jogging with my friend tomorrow at 5am. Hopefully we can both get up. Anyways, I'm off before my head explodes.

she's in San Diego and I'm still here...


 
  It's 10:30pm and I'm beat. Not to mention missing my sister. She left to visit my older sister in San Diego and I'm stuck here in Oakland, working 40 hours a week for spring break. Don't get me wrong, I'm thankful to have a job, but I want to enjoy being young and not having commitments. I guess wanting to be successful in the future clashes with that. Oh well... I guess I have to take myself out this Wednesday.

Anyways, I hope everyone has a great Sunday tomorrow!

--Susy

PS: I posted new looks on Chictopia. Give them a look.

give me some brain juice...

 I'm supposed to be studying right now. I have to finish my two page essay and my presentation since I'm on stand-by for that. But most likely I'll have to present today and I don't want to. I really don't want to. I think I'm going to have to wing more then half of the info. Dang. I hate that. I don't like public speaking, but oh, well. School is school. Wish me luck. --Susy


I'm selling on Poshmark!


Okay, so I'm selling my clothes on Poshmark.com. You can go into my "closet" and buy till your heart's content.

The reason I'm selling isn't really so I can buy more items -- though, I will have to buy some more staples for my wardrobe -- but so that my closet and isn't bursting out of the seams and so that I have to struggle less. I have quite a bit of clothes. I may not use it all, but I still complain while I have all this clothes in there. So I decided to give some away while some others I have decided to sell online. So far I've sold one item, but I was so excited. So I hope to sell the rest as well.  Anyways, go check out my stuff! Please and thank you :D https://poshmark.com/closet/valenciasusy     --Susy

"they say if you love someone, you've got to let them go..." #NewStory

I wrote a little drabble. It's a little over 100 words but I like it.
It's a bit depressing, in a angst-y way. I was listening to Superhuman by Chris Brown and I found my brain floating with the image of a man in love, his heart broken and the love of his life with someone else. And that's how this story came about. I'm also thinking that I should put all my writing and stuff in my other blog, but I think I might be too lazy. I just don't want to bore anyone with all my Polyvore sets and the likes. Anyways, the story is located here: http://www.fictionpress.com/s/3110203/1/Superhuman
Read it and tell me what you think. Have a great day!

and I came to the conclution that punching hurts... #BlueMoon-ShamelessSelfPromo


Chapter 3 is up for Blue Moon. Link below.

my heart was left in San Francisco



So tomorrow turned into the day after the next. Man, I did not think I would have taken so much time but apparently I was really tired from working and writing my butt off for school that I didn't even upload these pictures the day I said I was going to do it.
  So, I went to the Arab Women's Conference and I have to say that it was entertaining and a whole lot appealing. And I mean that in the sense that many people from different ethnicities think that they are alone in their struggles but they are not. The stereotypes follow all and every person no matter their gender or ethnicity. Going to the conference made me see that; not that I hadn't seen it before. But it was a nice experience. I'll post up a video I took later, right now I need to head over to class.

a collision of eras


They're finally here! I am so psyched that my movies are here. I just love these movies. Once I saw that my paycheck was wired, I went online and added these to my cart right away and with one beautiful click I had bought these beautiful and musical movies. I'm so happy I have no words. Anyways, I'm off to watch me some Pitch Perfect. --Susy

it's my first Poshmark sale!

So I sold my first item on Poshmark and I feel great.  I was really grateful to the buyer, simply because I know that buying online has risks and you just want what you paid for. So I decided to make a thank you note for my dear, dear customer and send it along with the package.

  On another note, I still haven't finished my essay or my test. Both for my Psych class tomorrow. It's going to be a hectic day tomorrow. Wish me luck! -- Susy

blog love; the top three

Hello everyone. I've decided to post up some of my most favorite things since I never find the time to do anything productive, I've decided to show everyone my favorite blogs. There are three blogs in general that I just love and I admire and inspire me to no end with every and all posts. 
(the blogs are in no order, just to make that clear)


I have to say that by:Dilan Dilir is one of my must reads, hence why she is in my tabs in my page. She is talented and I just love how her style is radiated from her pictures and her drawings. I have to say that I even sent her an email (yes, I am a fan girl) and she replied! I was so happy it was ridiculous! But she has a great blog, go check her out! If you like to draw and like pretty pictures, then her blog is one you need to see.



Jazzabelle's Diary... Gosh, what can I say about her when there's no words? Jazmine's blog is so down to earth and laid back that I wish I could meet her in person so some of it could rub off on me.  Her style is so nice and she -- Jazmine -- herself is so beautiful. I love that she wears her clothes proudly and that she finds different ways to wear them. I also love the the thrill of finding something in a second-hand store, so I can relate to her in some way. Anyways, Jazzabelle's Diary is amazing, everyone should go check her out and show her some love.



Who doesn't like a guy who looks nice and has an amazing style? Well, that's Peter Adrian at The Hobbyists. This dude is so laid back and not to mention talented! Seriously, check him out in LOOKBOOK.nu and be awed by such a simple and amazing style. I really like Peter because he seems like a nice guy; he replies to people and seems very genuine, that is something you don't get much of now in days with people who think are good-looking much less stylish. So I have to say that it's a breath of fresh air. And what a breath that is! I mean, look at him! >.<

  So, yeah, these are my top three blog loves. There are a few more blogs that I enjoy, but these three are in my tabs for a reason. I love simplicity and humility. And I think these people will go very far in life. My respect and admiration to them. Now go show them some love!

Blue Moon Update #ShamelessSelfPromo

My story Blue Moon was being written then completely took a different turn. I am currently doing the end of the scene then it will be uploaded unto my FictionPress account. But here is a little teaser:

His eyes stuck on me like a presence I could actually touch. Heavy and heady, and a bit frightening to be truthful. No one -- well, not many -- have looked at me in that way. Why would they?

This story is not about a girl who has low self-esteem and it will not be dark. I want to make it fluffy and HEA. (that's happily ever after, just FYI) -- Susy

Walk Sign


 I'll post an old picture since I'm tired and don't feel well.
  So... I took this in December 2012 in Downtown San Francisco. It was wet and drizzling. I loved it.

Monday, March 4, 2013

let's have a looksy...

flowery shirt; F21 / oxblood short sleeve; H&M / polkadot short sleeve; F21 / short sleeve; F21 / jean shirt; SO (KOHL'S)

HERSCHEL SUPPLY CO. backpack; Zappos.com
blazer; RALPH LAUREN / khaki utility jacket; TJMAXX / crew neck sweater; OLD NAVY
Converse / brown and suede tan flats; H&M / Payless

  Okay, so as you can see, I've had a busy weekend. Okay, so it was a busy week. I received my Herschel backpack on Friday evening and to say I was happy is an understatement. I was skipping around like a loon! On Saturday I went to the mall with my friends and bought these items. The Converse my best friend bought for me a few days prior and on that same day I bought my nude heels. I wore them on Friday along with my brown Ralph Lauren blazer. I just decided to post them up in this post since they were never featured in my "Just In" category. Anyways, I'm still writing my story Blue Moon. That's another post soon to come!
  Anyways, I've had a lazy day today. Hopefully I can watch Thor before I go to bed, but I doubt it.  On the up-side, I might go to my older brother's house to get my laptop this weekend. It's pre-owned, but who cares? It will be mine ans I am happy. Have a good evening! -- Susy

rockin' it gradma style!

  So I went shopping a little bit before Valentine's Day and I decided to make some memorable mugs for my sister-in-law and my monster (my younger sister) and I decided to check out the racks of clothes in the thrift store and thank goodness I did! I found this beautiful blazer just hanging there waiting for me.

Blazer; RALPH LAUREN (THRIFTED) / Dress; H&M / Bag; Dooney & Bourke / Shoes; Payless



The blazer is just a beautiful piece. The top of the collar (underneath) is brown and suede, just like the elbow patches. They're super soft and comfortable. I paired it with my beige H&M dress and my Dooney & Bourke bag (the dress I got from a second hand shop brand new with tags and the bag from a consignment store near by). I also wore my little one inch kitty heels today. Thank goodness for them, because after standing for 9 hours today I was feeling more than annoyed when I couldn't find any suitable flats for the outfit.  Anyways, I better get to sleep, my eyes are drooping. Good night all. -- Susy
