joannaladrido 's Thoughts:

There are just some days that you just cannot help but be thankful for so you dress up and face the world with a bright smile and an equally bright outfit to match.

This day…was one of them.

I love how the holidays are nearing!!! I have this sudden rush from hearing Christmas carols, seeing decorations and lights line up the street (my house officially looks like a Christmas light bomb tastefully exploded in the walls outside and in our garden…my mom totally knows how to do excess and pull it off) and in my residence, even our bathroom rugs, shower curtains, table flower arrangement and seat covers scream CHRISTMAS.

I love how Christmas is on steroids this year! Thus the very jolly spirit. No room for Scrooge!!! I am feeling the love!!!!

I woke up very early which was a total deviation from my usual waking hour of 1 pm (I am nocturnal like that!) and so I took a bath, ate my breakfast and dressed up to get ready!

I was feeling very ballerina girl yet again today so I decided to bring out my favorite DIYs, this black 6 layer tulle skirt I also have in pink and white. I wore the pink one last Halloween as Carrie Bradshaw. As I said before, ballerina tutus are my thing and I am so glad I never got rid of my own ones from ballet ages ago. Tutus are totally something I do and I’d wear a ballerina skirt over a pencil skirt any day, thank you very much! Haha so bring out the tulle!

I have about 11 tutus in different styles and colors back here. Three of them, I bought from young designers and 8 that I designed and made myself. I cannot get enough of them!!! I love ’em so much that I will have an upcoming project on ballet skirts and I hope you CHIC girlies support!!!

It was also a very very sunny day today!! (I love the sun and I hate it when it rains!!!). The malls were filled with busy bee Christmas shoppers, myself included. I do not understand why my list just keep going and going!!!

My bestfriend and I had a date to watch Twilight today since it comes out at the cinemas here, officially. I was expecting to already be disappointed but there was just one scene of Edward there where I could not help but shrieeek with the other girls in the cinema. I was actually laughing at those girls since they were so totally head over heels but lo and behold, I ended up doing the same thing! Talk about eating your words!!!

Anyway, my boyfriend and my bestfriend’s sister CARA accompanied us today and made things a bit more interesting. They all spiced things up by giving me some amazingly juicy stories and I could not help but just laugh it off. The best of us just grin and bear it. I always love Cara and her funny funny anecdotes!!! This girl is a feisty one despite the very very innocent look she has.

Had a great and light brunch then watched the movie. Shopped a bit and then headed off to meet with my seamstress again to finalize certain things for my Christmas eve gown! I love the holidays!!! Yaaay! I spent almost the whole day out of the house I am totally glad I am back home safe!!! I am very tired and am not half way done with all the things I need to accomplish! SIGH.

Wish me luck! XOXO

And please add THIS MULTIPLY ACCOUNT:http://shopglitterati.multiply.com if you have an account!!! Cheers!

I wore a very very frilly poufy tutu skirt (plie) with a men’s tanktop and a studded belt. It was a very gray and black day for some reason and I wanted to downplay the very froufrou skirt with muted colors.

Song inspiration: OPEN YOUR EYES by Snow Patrol

_All this feels strange and untrue
And I won’t waste a minute without you
My bones ache, my skin feels cold
And I’m getting so tired and so old

The anger swells in my guts
And I won’t feel these slices and cuts
I want so much to open your eyes
’Cause I need you to look into mine

Tell me that you’ll open your eyes [x4]

Get up, get out, get away from these liars
‘Cause they don’t get your soul or your fire
Take my hand, knot your fingers through mine
And we’ll walk from this dark room for the last time

Every minute from this minute now
We can do what we like anywhere
I want so much to open your eyes
’Cause I need you to look into mine

Tell me that you’ll open your eyes [x8]

All this feels strange and untrue
And I won’t waste a minute without you_

I love this song!
