This weekend was graduation for me and I'm honestly speechless about it all. But I will try to put into words how much it meant to me. You know since we were freshman we wished that we could have been sophomores and then when we were sophomores we couldn't wait to be underclassmen and then finally we were seniors and we just couldn't wait for that moment when we could graduate. And now the time has come and all of a sudden it just wasn't the same for us. The end of an era was coming up and we were too caught up in the hopes of a bright future. My class is a class that gets along decently but I feel on Saturday and Sunday as we were essentially saying goodbye to each other we became closer. Anyways WE DID IT! I never have to wear a plaid skirt, button down, knee socks and oxford shoes to school ever again along with that stupid navy blazer.

As a graduation gift my aunt gave me some makeup from Lancome that she has just accumulated this year(she's constantly buying stuff for those free giveaways when you spend etc.) along with my new favorite gadget the Kindle Touch! More on that tomorrow :)

Thanks to my fellow blogger and friend Ashley Chloe of daisypetalss who first bought similar shoes several months ago I decided to buy a pair for myself when I found them at the Nordstrom semi-annual sale for $50. That's a pretty sweet deal considering outside of sales like these, Sperrys rarely go on sale. These shoes are just to die for, they sparkle and bring attention to an otherwise plain shoe. So glad I didn't go for the regular Sperry. Why blend in with the crowd when you can shine?

great gatsby trailer

Today the Great Gatsby Trailer came out and I can not be more excited to see it! I read the Great Gatsby my junior year in high school and I loved it. It's such a good, exciting book and the best part for those of you who don't like reading long books its a relatively short classic. In my renewed excitement in the society of the 1920's I had to make a polyvore below.

The month of May has been crazy! Between taking 6 APs and graduating from high school I've just been stressed and getting ready to say goodbye. I can't help but feel an era is ending and it just feels surreal to me like a dream. Katie(one of my good friends) and I were talking about how it's always the biggest moments in life that feels like a dream. I've been so blessed these last four years, a lot of terrible things have happened to me and my school community in general but my class has survived. On Monday was our last day(not school day) we just had an assembly and had a luncheon.

My school gave each of us a gift bag filled with Lessons for Living by Blessed John Paul II which my school is named after, a "presidential" pen since presidential pencils are sought after at my school and a $20 dollar gift card to Target. Pretty generous I would say. I hope for those of you who are graduating or have graduated from high school or college this year that you are proud of your accomplishments!

As promised here are the things I bought at Target. My obsession with buying things from Target will only continue as I just received a 20 dollar gift card to Target as a graduation present from my school. I've been using Clinique Voluminousness Mascara as it came in a sample and it worked well as far as elongating my lashes went. However, being Asian my lashes are both short and straight however now they are long and straight so I needed something that would curl my lashes subtly without using either an eyelash curler or false eyelashes. I decided on Falsies after reading through many reviews of the product online and on blogs. Falsies works miracles on lashes(yes even Asian ones) giving it a subtle curl. However, the product is fairly wet and can clump easily. So that's sort of a pain.

I also got a nail filing set for a grand total of 1 dollar. Not bad huh? It comes with a nail filer(not that I ever use it) a toe nail clipper, tweezer and fingernail clipper. Since I'm going to college in the fall I knew I was going to need something like this soon.

This weekend was the first weekend in a long time that I have been able to just relax and enjoy myself as I had my last day of high school on Friday (more about that later). So while cleaning out my closet I found this metal tin box from my fossil box. I love that it looks vintage and that it's big enough to store quite a lot. I decided on storing ribbons and friendship bracelets. This weekend I was also able to get a bit of shopping in at Target so more about that tomorrow! Love you all!

Sorry for the lack of posts lately. These two weeks have been the last two weeks of high school for me and I have had ap exams for basically the entire time. Once these last four days go by(and yes I have a countdown) I will be able to devote more or my time to this :)

I love all these bracelets but they can get rather expensive especially the Chan Luu ones who go for almost 100 dollars. I just don't think that friendship bracelets should be worth that much so why not make your own and tell everyone you know that you, yes you, made it.
