Autumn Fashion Haul

I spent the weekend home from college and we were planning a run to Syracuse, NY for a mall trip and snow mobile show. Mom and I enjoyed some time at the massive Carousel Mall wandering the endless mass of shops and people. I, of course, b-lined for my favorite store, Hot Topic, first and then shopped the sales in the stores with Autumn fashion out.

I bought a good amount from Hot Topic and scored a bit of a sale at Wet Seal.

Hot Topic: HT just renovated this store with their new industrial look. I thought it showed off the product even more than the old look, though I loved it. I bought the Rainbow Kitty Halloween Kit, Cat Sweatshirt Top, Finch Locket, Crackle Nail Polish, and Feather Hair Extention. Allinall I am pleased with the quality of the items. The Halloween Kit should really be named, though, Sweet Cheshire or something of the like because of the look. Not all colors of the rainbow exist in this peice however, it will be perfect for the party with the Anime Club at my college. The magnet in the locket is crooked but otherwise fine, and there are no other flaws in the rest of the litter that I bought. I <3 HT

I almost bought a Living Dead Doll that was absolutely adorable but would have broken my budget. Like I said, I love HT

Max Brownie Points (10/10) for Hot Topic's prices, selection, quality, and updates to the stores!

Wet Seal: Wet Seal had a sale that was really nice, "Buy one get the other for a penny." I bought this hat because of it's fit and price. I normally don't look good in hats, but I look cute in this one. I love the lace look too. I got the rubber Peace bracelet for a penny and love it to bits as well.

 I will definatly check their selection again because of their prices and such.


We went to the Disney store as well and they had their X-mas ornaments out already, but they were adorable.

We also saw a lot of Hello Kitty in the mall which was tempting me to bust my budget.


Not so Wordless Sunday: Subway for lunch

Cinder: Can I has subway wif you?
Me: Why yes you can! <3

Does the truth matter anymore or is it just a myth of our being?

As you may have seen, if you are so inclined to read my mother's blog (My Bead Journey), I started college a little over a month ago. Wow, right, it has been that long already. In that time, I have a near lifetime or at least show season worth of stories to tell. Some good, some heart breaking. However, I have been asking myself this question lately. Does the truth matter?

Roommates teach people many things through their college careers, however, all mine have taught me is hardship and how my strength is the only thing keeping me alive, literally. The people that I am living with have made me uncomfortable to the point where I stopped eating and it was hard for me to even go to the bathroom without locking my bedroom door and the bathroom door. The lies that they have told and the petty things that they have done have forced me to become sick of everything all together. The will to survive was the only thing standing between me and well, you know how that goes.

This is my comeback, and my outcry.

If anyone in college that you know or if you are said person, please, be strong for yourself and speak out. In these past weeks I have been bullied by my roommates, put through the mediation ringer, and even lightly cyberbullied. Don't let what happened to me happen to you or whomever you may know that is going through this or has. Find support. This is an aweful thing to go through and no one should do it alone. Find support and draw attention to this problem that I feel at least so few people actually know about. Even through we are adults, no one should be treated this way, no matter their age, gender, race, and personality.
