Cali Fever

Although my trip to LA isn't until the beginning of January, I've already caught Cali Fever.  Hence my recent t-shirt buy.  I spotted this $3 steal at Old Navy yesterday and had to have it; a true tourist buy :) I am really going to try and utilize my wardrobe attire and not buy too many things for this upcoming trip!  Did you laugh out loud as much as I just did? Yeah we both know that's actually not possible...
(All outfit details with links listed below!)  

[Another $3 steal!  All you 80's babies can voice your jealousy.]

OOTD: Sick Baby

'Tis the season of sickness!  Thanks to everyone who sneezed, coughed, and shared their bacteria with me these past few weeks, I'm officially sick -__-  I've been drugged up on zinc & chicken noodle soup the last few days so I apologize if we encounter and I seem discombobulated.  This morning I left the house accidentally with my towel still in my hair so I am obviously experiencing side effects to my vitamins.  Off duty, I've concluded my sickness suffices as a fair excuse to look like a homeless person (not that I don't normally).  It's a 'sweats & sneakers' kinda day....although I feel like I've been saying that since '88.  

I made a trip to Target today to grocery shop & pick up a few more toys for my 'Operation Christmas Child' box I'm filling. (more info here But of course it's Target so you walk in for 1 thing and leave with 9,029 things.   

H&M blazer (old), H&M tank ($7), TJ Maxx sweats ($12), Converse from TJ Maxx ($24), MKors Watch, F21 cross necklace  ($3)

Despite my dampened mood, I'm ecstatic the sun is shining in Minneapolis today :)

Curse Target's clearance section!  Picked up this super cute flannel original price $17.99, marked down to $5 & an ash grey (it looks white, but it's not) Sally Hansen polish originally $6.99 marked down to $1.  I'm loving muted nail colors for fall/winter. 

Of course what I went into Target for.... 

And last, but not least, toys toys toys! for my special baby girl I'm donating to for Operation Christmas Child.  What are you guys doing to get into the Holiday spirit?

I admit I go through waves of creative facets and my readers seem to only benefit from my peaks.  Every month proves to be busier than the last and I'm slowly losing grip on my blogging habits.  I have so many adventures/photos/stories from the last couple of months though that I have been meaning to post.  Please extend to me your patience and you'll love what's to come.

In more relevant news, is anyone else heartbroken over the break up of Julena?!?! (Justin Beiber & Selena Gomez?)  My young heart was already shattered to pieces when my teenage idols Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears called it quits, why would Cupid choose to recarve the wounds?!  I have been in a depressed state the last few days.  I will enter back into the world after my last cry during JB's "One Less Lonely Girl"......*sigh.
