This was us 4 years ago...

And today...we're still together :)

Maybe one day this distance will come to an end.
Until then, I love you from afar.

Happy 4 year anniversary, Gabko <3

Question Mark

High fashion or just plain strange?
I'm still trying to decide.

(And by the way, heels were $4 at a thrift store. Score.)

Love from Afar

Where ever you may be,
even across the sea,
i love you with all my heart.
athough we're still apart.

Sending my love from afar,
across the ocean to where you are.
i miss you dearly, my love.
so consider this, your valentine's day hug.

In Honour...

Even though I could care less about honor of the Super Bowl last night...

My friend and I had a little get-together to watch the game's commercials ;) Yes, for real.
When the game came on we switched to "The Biggest Loser" :).

ANYWAY, we both didn't have any Colt's or Saint's attire (even though we both go to school in Indiana).
So, we represented where we are from  - not where we currently live.

Swaziland and Canada :)
Soccer and hockey, yet we were watching American football.
We found it comical,
and I thought I'd share =)

City of Lights

Having been inspired this past week by great [thrifting] finds, I once again have the urge to travel.
NYC, the city of lights...although they weren't found at thrift stores, I have bought of my most prized possessions in this busy city.
One of the best finds I've ever found? - that black and red Roxy coat.
Oh, yes. New Year's Day 2009 at Pac Sun for $40.
Doesn't get much better than that.

It may be over a year old, but I still wear it almost everyday (when it matches ;) lol).
Somethings never go out of style.
Especially when found at an extraordinary price.

I'm stuck and mesmerized by the incredible jewlery that can be found at thrift stores.
All the above jewlery was found at a Goodwill or other independant thrift store for the low price of $1-2.
Incredible. Just incredible.

The Splurge

BEST thrift store snag ever - 3 pairs of fabulous heels for $3.99 EACH.
Thifting doesn't get much better than that.
(Mind you, I wear size 11 - and that is a hard size to find!)

One day I'll get married....until then, I'll have fun in as many bridal dresses as possible :)

The Very Best Accessory

Scarves go with any outfit, add color and can be worn multiple ways, creating variety.
(With my litte sister Amy and boyfriend Gabriel)

Let's Travel to the World of Fashion...

My travel musts, especially when traveling overseas, include comfy jeans, a big scarf, a reusable water bottle, a big bag and of course a good book (for when two of your flights are delayed four miss your third flight....and end up taking a seven hour train ride).

The scarf serves as a fashion piece as well as a blanket during the long flights and the big bag serves as a wonderful "extra" carry-on bag ;)

My little sister looked amazing when she arrived in Vienna, Austria to celebrate New Year's Eve this past December.
(Notice her comfy jeans, big scarf and big bag.....)
