day nineteen and tmi-tuesday

day 19: what are your nicknames and why do you have them?
my basic nickname for anyone and everyone is "aim." take the ee's out of my name and there you have it - a quick way to get my attention. the boy splendidly refers to me as sweetheart, babe, darling, and the like. my daddy calls me "rama," which is a nickname of a previous nickname he still sometimes calls me, "ramalama." i can't remember why he started that. oh, he and my uncle sometimes call me "aimily" because... just because. i also go by moron, bitch, cunt. ya know. whatever floats your boat, i guess.
i almost forgot to post my challenge today, because quite honestly i already thought that i'd posted something on here today... i guess i was thinking of yesterday. i'm losing it! 20 years old and i'm losing it.

peace and love, dolls... peace and motherfucking love.

taggy tag

i'm stealing a fashion question/answers tag from laura at big city dreams because i am quite terribly bored with myself right now!

1. What is your favorite accessory?
definitely an awesome purse. it can make or break the outfit. i have quite the obsession with purses and i can never get enough! whether it's a colorful purse to brighten up a simple outfit or just a classy, amazing purse for everyday. yum yum yum!

2. Who's your fashion role model? (In real life & Youtube/blogging)
i just posted for my 30 day challenge that i love kim kardashian's style, so she definitely makes the list. another fashion role model of mine would have to be heidi klum. she's not afraid to take risks and always looks flawless, no matter what is draping her skin. as for blogging, mostly everybody i follow has great style so i can't pick just one!

3. What do you always carry with you?
burts bees chapstick, my iphone, a bottle of water, and usually a snack. those are my must-haves for going anywhere out of the house!

4. What would you describe your style as?
my style has definitely changed in the past couple of years. i'm finally ignoring trends and wearing what suits me the best. i normally go for the comfortably chic kind of clothing, but i do love dressing up when the mood strikes. i don't have one particular style, i tend to jut out into different categories all the time.

5. Favorite: jeans, sunglasses, heels?
favorite jeans - anything that fits! i don't discriminate against brands. as long as it fits, i love em! sunglasses, i usually always go for aviators because they fit my face frame the best. platform heels are my LOVERS. i can't buy enough pairs! it definitely puts a big dent in my wallet.

6. What inspired you to blog about fashion?
i'm not really sure. i started out just blogging about random shit, and i started following awesome bloggers that posted mainly about fashion and i loved it! i decided to take a whack at it, and here i am.

7. What is your favorite fashion store/shop?
express, forever21, h&m, american eagle [for basics], marshall's and tjmaxx because they have such amazing deals on clothes! i always find myself shopping at these stores before i even have a chance to question the whole money thing haha.

8. What is your favorite fabric in clothing?
cotton for sure!

9. Who is your favorite designer?
oh gosh... i can't even begin to list everyone! louis vuitton, alexander wang, betsey johnson, marc jacobs, chanel, michael kors, versace... the list goes on and on.

10. Who/what inspires your style?
people watching. it really helps me to see what works, what doesn't, all that good stuff. plus, when you see crazy ass people, it just makes my day.

11. What would you choose to do - buy something in high quality or make it yourself if you could?
i would love to have the skill to make clothing for myself! everything would always fit perfectly! but then again, i don't always have the creativity of famous fashion designers so their stuff definitely catches my eyes.

i don't know who to tag because there's so many bloggers whose answers i'd like to see, so basically if you want to do it, take it!


day 17: someone you would want to switch lives with for a day and why | day 18: what are your plans, dreams and goals?

who would i want to be for a day... preferably someone with an amazing closet! i quite envy the closet of kim kardashian, not to mention her awesome rear end.

plans, dreams, and goals... three scary words if you ask me. my current plan is to basically just enjoy myself right now and take things as they come, ya know? my dreams... i wish i could become a part of a magazine franchise, like glamour, elle, cosmopolitan and the like. i would be an inspiring, important, extremely well-dressed executive of the company and help with editorials, layouts, and advice columns. i don't even know if that's possible, but i wish to have a life like that. my future goals? definitely go back to school in the spring; finish my college education; get an amazing job that i love and suits my needs to afford things i need/want.

i guess that's it! hope you are all having a wonderful day :}

blogger etiquite

i was messaged and asked to make a post about what to do and not to do when dealing with your blog, so here goes!

+ come on, girls, say it with me: LESS IS MORE. make your layout simple and easy to read. too many colors/designs/fonts create confusion and hurt the eyes of your viewers.

 + if you haven't already, make a twitter. it's the 21st century! besides, followers will now have the option to view you in your "normal habitat" and can get to know you better. and the plus side - faster communication.

+ simple language = good. you're not a businessman/woman talking to executives or people high up in command. it's a blog. talk to your followers as if they're your friends, and be friendly.

+ be open. if you post asking for advice and you don't get the answer you were looking for, simply say thank you and be appreciative that a follower not only read your post, but gave you her own input. which leads me to my next tip...

+ always be kind. if you have comments open to everyone and someone says something nasty, ignore it. it's hard, i know, but people don't always like others opinion so they debase themselves to being rude.

+ just as you wouldn't like rude comments on your blog, keep yourself from posting rude comments on others'. you wouldn't walk into someone's house and immediately insult everything about it, would you? keep it the same way for a blog. a blog is something personal, and if you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all.

+ if you comment on people's posts, it's likely that they will return the favor. this is called making friends. if you are not similar with that terminology, well..... |ahem| moving on... but yes, if you like someone's post, write up something little and send it to them. getting comments/feedback is always a pleasure.

i must have left some things out, so feel free to post any good tips i've missed and i'll be sure to add them!

listen to your gut?

i am no longer listening to anything my gut says. i am now disobeying my gut.

i am no longer eating unhealthy. the way i think about it is... will this make me feel good after i eat it?
an all natural fruit smoothie? yes.
fresh veggies? yes.
fast food? NO.
ben & jerry's ice cream? HELL NO.

there's no point in eating crappy foods that do nothing to help my body function the way it needs to.

yes, this started out as an unhealthy outlook on food after seeing an overwhelming amount of pictures of thinspo [for people who don't know what that means, "thinspiration," a very unhealthy outlook many young girls view as their ultimate goal in becoming skinny.] i became obsessed with achieving "skinny." but now it's about achieving happiness, and more importantly, healthiness.

you must think, what do i want in the long run?
a healthy, strong, lean body? or that blissful moment when french fries excite your tastebuds?

quite honestly, i'm sick of feeling sluggish, out of shape, and just blah. so, here you have it. this week officially marks the beginning of my new lifestyle.

wish list

my car really must be jealous of me spending all my money on clothes because now it's deciding to break! i'm bringing the bastard to the shop tonight to get it looked at. there goes all my shopping for august...

as i sit here pouting, i've created a list of wants needs for autumn!

essie fall collection!
kenneth lane jewelry, snake bracelet
tibi brazilia beading dress
olivia harris new patch tote
thread social silk one shoulder dress
biolage smooththerape shampoo
biolage smooththerape conditioner [shit works wonders!]
FHI technique g2 1" flat iron
random list, i know! i'm out of it right now, i'm positive.

day fourteen fail

skipping day 14: a picture of you and your family.
i'm too busy suffering from severe wander lust. i've been stuck in this same small town for way too long. i need to get out. go to chicago, new york, la, london... somewhere that's bustling with interesting people waiting for me to meet. somewhere that has things to do, damn it! i'm sick of the same people, same buildings, same shopping, same scenery. get me out of here!

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

if you're reading this, you are lovely

though i don't have many followers, i adore each and every one of you who read my shit and comment me, because it cheers me up to know that there are cool people out there when i am clearly surrounded by morons.

so, thanks! <3

PS please note the name/url change, dolls!


day 13: a letter to someone who has hurt you recently -
why? why is it always me? you've got such a short temper and i somehow ALWAYS manage to set it off. it's totally unfair how you lay all of the responsibility on me and nobody else. you tell me i do absolutely nothing when in reality, you're too mad all the time to see that i actually DO. you blame me for everything and i'm sick of it. you don't do this to anybody else but me, and quite frankly, it's bullshit. it makes me sad that the way you act towards me is destroying our relationship. ever think that maybe it could be you, and not me? don't worry, though. you'll see how good you really had it after i leave.

Tuesday, August 24, 2010


day 12: how you found out about Tumblr/Blogspot and why you made one -

oy vey! as if i remember... hah. i think i always knew about blogspot and eventually i just wanted to create a pretty place where i could vent and all that bullshit. as for tumblr, i believe i started following somebody on twitter and they kept posting tumblr links, therefore i got a chance to roam the site and, duh, fall in love!

sorry for such a short, to-the-point post! i'm terribly lazy today and didn't get out of bed until 1:30pm so now i must drag my lazy ass into the shower and then make myself look presentable for the boy i love :}

ins & outs: fall 2010


military jackets
 pair it with pinks for a more girly spin on it, and to not look too "hard."

layered jewelry
 from your necklaces to bangles, mix colors, patterns, and textures.

big rings
 bigger is better, right?

bright colors
who says fall has to be neutral-colored everything? make everything bright - from your nails down to your tights!

peep-toe shoes
as long as it's not raining.. who cares?

healthy eating
 why not try something new? [unless you already eat healthy, then props!] it helps your skin clear up, and it just makes you feel good.

this genre of music is pure SEX.


trash talking to/about co-workers
so not worth it if someone has a slip of the mouth. backstabbers are everywhere!

no matter how tall you are, heels flatter everyone. they make your legs look miles long and they help make you stand straighter.
cropped shirts
unless you have perfect abs and a flat tummy, why would you want to expose yours? please keep it under wraps. besides, you get chilly when a draft hits your belly, especially now that fall weather is creeping up on us.

crappy fast food and heavily processed foods
you just feel like poo after you eat them, then you HAVE to poo because that shit is just no good.

new shoesies/ootd

DIY cut off shorts

day 11 = bust!

day 11: another picture of you and your friends - sorry, darlings! that's a no go due to the whole privacy thing. sorry i fail at this challenge, i should have actually looked over it before posting it hehe.

anyways, rant time!
you know what i absolutely LOATHE? rude people! this one lady came into our store today and tried to tell me how to do my job. our prices aren't expensive, but you certainly pay for what you've ordered. the bitch tried telling me i did my math wrong and charged her too much. she even went as far as writing down and the prices and doing the math - hello?! ever heard of tax? and ever think that maybe you might be a little WRONG because you're looking at the wrong size of a drink you ordered? she most certainly was not from around here because if she was, i would have called her out by her name and told her to leave. she was some filthy tourist still left over from the summer trash we get every year. ugh! it certainly didn't make my mood any better.
this crappy weather certainly isn't helping my mood either! rainy, dark, and windy. i honestly just want to lay in bed being lazy and refuse to get off of my laptop for the rest of the night, which is most likely what i'll end up doing :}

but enough about me... anybody else have a case of the mondays?

no makeup sunday

small update/day ten

first, let's get day ten of the 30 day challenge out of the way...

day 10: songs you listen to when you are happy, sad, bored, excited, mad, etc -
my happy go lucky songs consist of oldies music, indie rock/pop: james taylor, the eagles, the cars, train, sublime, skillet, colbie caillat, jason mraz, steve miller band, dave matthew's band... yaaaa know.
my sad songs consist of "our-generation-oldies," and people who just have mellow music or sing about love gone wrong kind of shit: 3 doors down, eric clapton, james taylor, britney spears, backstreet boys, kelly clarkson.
my excited music is generally based on anything pop/electronica/upbeat/rap such as: deadmau5, datsik, ke$ha, lady gaga, nicki minaj, lil wayne, outkast, rihanna, usher, black eyed peas, 3oh!3, LMFAO, the veronicas, new boyz.
my mad/angry music is usually always rap/hardcore: eminem, skindred, lil wayne, 50cent, three 6 mafia, pink, nirvana, nine inch nails.

aaanyways, update time!
- my mother and i have decided to go on a diet/healthy eating spree and exercising together [aka walking up and down the street]
- because shoes are my soft spot of fashion, i quite obviously raided the shoe department at marshall's this weekend and found a fabulous pair of heels! i'll take pictures once i stop being lazy.
- my car is broke :{ not only do i have to dish out $50 for an oil change/inspection, but i have to save up at least $500 because my check engine light came on and something is wrong with it, but i couldn't tell you what because none of that car lingo ever makes sense to me. hmph! send me money?

day neuf

happy saturday my darlings! i would say my weekend is starting off well, but that would be a total lie seeing as i've been up since 5am this morning and worked until 11. brutal, lemme tell you! anyways, it's day nine of thirty already! though this one might be a toughie...
day 9: something you've done in the past few days that you're proud of - 

hmmmph. honestly, nothing is coming to mind. this week has been kind of blah. i haven't really been shopping all that much which is good for my bank account/future endeavors, but other than that... i haven't fought with my mother much, either, which is just wow. also, i'm about to clean my room so maybe that could count ;}


Friday, August 20, 2010

day huit

day 8: your short term goals for this month and why -

lists are definitely my thing...

-get a second job, hopefully with health benefits!
-tell the next person who judges me for taking a semester off to fuck off
-get some early early early christmas shopping done! silly to be planning this far ahead, but sales are sales, people!
-clean my room and keep it clean
-stop eating sweets
-start jogging every day
-start saving for a macbook
-keep my nails painted and looking good!
-get my car fixed before my boyfriend has a fit :p

basic shtuff. y'know.

Thursday, August 19, 2010


are you on http://www.gilt.com/ yet? WHY NOT?
give me your email and i'll send you an invite!

day sept

day 7: a picture of someone/something that has had the biggest impact on you -

one word - LOVE

there is honestly nothing more raw in this world than some good ol fashioned love. there aren't words to describe it. i'll just leave it at that.

Wednesday, August 18, 2010

day 6

day 6: your favourite Superhero and why -

hmmm, this one's a toughie. i'd have to say cat woman.... or is she a villain? either way, you know there's WAY more to the girl than her skin-tight leather body suit and the whip she carries by her side. i've always had a secret love for badass character, always. she knows how to show batman a thing or two and she embraces her femininity and oozes sex appeal.

kane, the creator of batman and therefor catwoman, states:
"I felt that women were feline creatures and men were more like dogs. While dogs are faithful and friendly, cats are cool, detached, and unreliable. I felt much warmer with dogs around me--cats are as hard to understand as women are..."
see? everyone understands how "catty" women can be. she totally just takes the theory and runs with it - she definitely has the whole hot bitch thing going on.

BERMUDA! i absolutely adore this place and i would go back in a second! i went in april with my entire family [and i mean ENTIRE family] for my cousin's wedding. it was a cruise and my god, it was SO beautiful there! and the pink sand beaches are positively amazing. if you ever get the chance to go, do it!

hehe... as if i could only post ONE picture!
