I'd buy you Rogaine when you start losing all your hair

I went to Syracuse, NY over the past weekend to visit my sister, who is currently living there for school. Obviously, we headed to the local mall to do some serious sale shopping! I'll do this haul in small doses, since I'm in dire need of some blogging material.


I picked up a pair of American Eagle jeggings. These are my first pair, and I'm slightly impressed! I had nothing against the jegging idea, but I never thought I'd own one. My mom owning two pairs made me even more against purchasing a pair, but I'm glad I did. I love that they look like jeans, but they have the flexibility of leggings (at least in the leg area). I grabbed these in a 00R. They're slightly snug, but my experience with jeans is that they ALWAYS stretch out, so it's best to get them one size down.



I finally broke my Forever21 ban! I can't even remember the last time I set foot in the store. My mom and my sister wanted to drop in though, so I couldn't resist! I picked up this amazing waterfall knit cardigan. I love the 'grandpa' look of it, and it has the perfect amount of slouch. Unfortunately, it feels like it will pill easily, so I do have to be extra careful with this. I also picked up a pair of high-waisted linen shorts in XS. Forever21 is usually a hit or miss with small sizing, and this one was a definite hit! No sagginess in the bum area, and the waist didn't cut in to my stomach when I was sitting. The belt was an added bonus!

Happy belated Lunar New Year to everyone who celebrates. I always feel so lethargic in the winter (lack of sunlight/warmth/happiness) and it's hard for me to beat the cold weather blues... Any tips for giving myself a boost in the mood department?

I think the sizes are okay..from my experience anyway. 00 is still too big (meaning it's probably a 24?) for me.

@Joanna
Welcome back to Toronto!! LOL I like the high-waisted shorts! I have a similar pair of khaki shorts from F21 but they're low rise.

I never own a pair of AE jeans but I might just consider now. Well... in light for your better mood, at least you're not sick with a cold like I am. Been blowing my nose non-stop.

I like the look of yours better though, they don't look like jeggings at all! Mine don't look as "real" haha but I'm still impressed :)

I have the same exact pair of AE jeans and I wear it all the time! lol. They stretch out a bunch and when u wash and dry them they fit like a glove.

I haven't been to F21 in forever because it's ridiculous how much I can spend in there.

Happy Lunar New Year to you too doll. <3
