Been Gone For So Long

Well, it certainly has been a while. Between moving back to school, schoolwork, work and my computer going kapoot I've certainly had a busy few weeks. But until I have time for a longer post, perhaps and OOTD here's one of my favorite scarves.

I'm a huge scarf girl, you can change up an outfit easily from class to a nice lunch with friends just by changing the scarf you're wearing. I have large square ones, long skinny ones, thin ones, thick ones, solid and printed. I might have a scarf addiction >.<. But this particular one is from H&M, its a gigantic square scarf that I can easily use as a shawl, beach cover, or wrapped up for winter cozyness around my neck. The large bright flower print always peps me up especially on rainy days, and works well with a variety of colors and outfits. I like to wear it with a flowy white blouse, dark blue jeans and a pair of boots or sandals depending on the season. What do you guys think about scarves? Do you have a favorite one, id love to see them :).

Things I'm loving

Hello Hello,

So break is almost over for me and I'm headed back to my apartment at school tomorrow. I'm always happy to go back to school because I get to see my friends again, there's always something going on and I have more freedom. On the downside I don't get delicious home cooked foods everyday and there's a lot of work to get done *sigh*. Until I'm back on the grind here's a few things that I've been loving for some time now. 
 I found my turquoise wallet at Big Lots for only three or four dollars and fell in love instantly(this was in my I must have everything turquoise phase). Not only was it super cheap, but its made really well. I love the color with some gold stud and zipper detailing. Its got two pockets and a zippered pouch so it has plenty of room for my cards, money and the bits and bobs that find their way in. 
Of course I'm loving my IPhone, not much to be said there its pretty much attached to me while I play Temple run and Dragon vale. 
The Wreck this Journal was a nifty Christmas gift from my boyfriend, it has instructions on every page of things to do to it everyday to "wreck it" here's some fun examples. Its a great way to stay creative and looking at things in a new way.
 I got this bracelet a few weeks ago at JCpenny, and I love how jazzy and sparkly it is. After hunting for similar ones on the internet for ages and finding none under $20 I almost gave in and then luckily stumbled across this beauty while walking through the store. Its such an easy piece to add some pizzazz to any basic outfit.
 These are my staples for everyday wear. The pearl studs are from H&M and the ring is from Kohl's (City Rox).
 I love perfume. When I say I love perfume, I mean that you will hardly ever find me without a spritz of something on whereas I go for days without a spot of make up. I also prefer cleaner more masculine scents to floral and fruity and as such I have had several men's colognes as a part of my collection through out the years.  I like Issue No. 1 Vinyl from Pac Sun and have had it for a long time now, its a woodsy scent that's not over powering and good for daily use.
sorry about the crap picture :( my camera died
With all the buzz that's been going around about Argan oil, I figured I would give it a try when I saw this at CVS. I have used other Organix products in the past and really enjoyed them and this one is no different. It's the more affordable version of the Josie Maran oil retailing at about $10 instead of Josie's $48. In my opinion it works really well, though my hair isn't particularly frizzy or boisterous in anyway I found that this does make it a lot softer and sleeker with shine and no greasy look or feeling. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to try Argan oil.

I'm sure all of you have already read, seen, and used these two for ages. I would definitely consider the Blistex Silk & Shine a holy grail product, its always done wonders for my lips. The Burt's Bees lip balm is in the color Rose and is a great moisturizer and adds a nice touch of color. 

*PHEW* that was a very unintentionally long post, now back to packing for me :) have a great day!

New year, new blog

Hello world, or at least you wonderful people who've stopped to read my first post ever. My name is Priyanka, but most of my friends call me Pri. While on break from school and puttering around my room, I realized that a) I need to organize my makeup and clothes, and b) why not write a blog about them and my chaotic self as I muddle through my last semester of college. You might see some changes around here as I get used to all the spiffy things I can do. 

I'll leave you with a pretty picture. I love her fishtail braid, chunky necklaces and fresh make up.
