You've Got Mail!

My friend J informed me that I have been slacking on SCandOPT and that I need to start posting again! She was totally right, and today is the perfect day to post again.

This is what you have been missing:

1. Homecoming is in one week! Where did September go? I think it was the beginning of summer, then I blinked and it's nearly October-- it's like a big blur of weekend (except I've been working during that time...)! Back to homecoming for one moment-- I'm super excited about the beer gardens and seeing loads of people I haven't seen for ages!! YAY!

2. The count down the Australia has begun-- I had the days, but I forget now! A few months anyway, but still exciting! and I have a few Oz vacation destinations to visit too! YAY!

3. I have met a great group of friends through a Uni friend. Last weekend was great, Fri was fun and Sat we went to see live music! (ohhh la la-- you best ask about this!) and we definitely need to go see them again!!! I miss weekends like that, makes me think of school and many nights at the Pig!

4. My Fashion Finds---

This weekend was AMAZING for great fashion finds. It started with finding a James Perse dress for $6-- and $84 dress for $6. Yes, please! Its super cute, summery, a slate/ greenish colour perfect for hot (Australia) summer days! annnd on top of that, it can be worn with boots for a more fall look! Love it!

Then, last weekend I tired on a super cute plain hoody in purple at the mall. It was $40. I should have bought it, but I didn't... then this weekend I went back and got it! The last one left. Ah ha. It was meant to be. Who doesn't love a new comfy hoody? (That was a silly question, EVERYONE loves a new comfy hoody!!)

THEN I found a FENDI bag. It was unmarked (price wise) but I couldn't stop looking at it. I found this consignment shop just outside of town (its the kind of shop where people who can afford fendi bags drop off stuff) Who doesn't love that? Anyway, the bag needs a little love (nothing a little buffing couldn't get rid of) and it's perfect. Tons of room, the Fendi "F's". Real. SOLD! Ahhh... my first real Fendi (breathe, must breathe)

5. I managed to watch You've Got Mail twice! I love that movie for several reasons, including but not limited to: it's divine location of Manhattan, my love of books and jealously of the Little Shop Around the Corner, the love connection strengthened though AOL mail, the old school Macbook, the fact my computer has never once told me "You've Got Mail"... oh the list goes on and on... it's just so cute. It's like the warm feeling that the movie Love Actually gives you... ahhh....

So all in all a good past few weeks!! --- Have you been up to anything fun lately???

I need an internship!

I've been thinking lately that I really need some kind of internship that will give me insight into potential careers. You may know I am heading to Australia soon for teachers college, but I think I want more/ I'm not sold on the teaching thing...

I'm thinking more PR, special events stuff; creative-- a non 9-5 job!!!

So here's my question(s) to you:

Have you done an internship? Know any potential places for me to look into?

Where in the world is...

Carmen San Diego!

I added a new widget to the page so I can see where visitors are coming from... the one I have only does in the last 24 hours and that's no fun!!

Where are you?

A little more Drama!

After a little break from posting, I'm back with a vengeance! and ready to discuss many of our favourite cultural icons!

Let's begin with television teenage drama....

I can't believe I haven't written about 1. Gossip Girl and 2. 90210 this season!


Have you seen Gossip Girl? Without ruining anything for those who are not caught up-- omfg. the bus scene. Hot, or what? and I think the outfits are just getting better and better! I must admit I am a little jealous of their couture clothing!!!

90210. A little less drama filled than I was hoping for-- cheating dad (with mum's that don't care), nice cars, big houses, cool kids friends with the geek... what is this The O.C? Or is it 90210 imitating The O.C. that was imitating 90210, Beverly Hills (the original) or is it... eeek, my head in spinning! I kid, I kid. I still love it! Are you feeling the show? I have a feeling it might be dunzo after a year unless something changes, but for now, I'll keep watching! 

If you haven't seen the preview, check it out here

Did you look like that at 15? haha
