Island in the Sun: Part 1

(h&m dress, sanya floppy hat)

The internet in China has been HORRIBLE lately..all foreign websites have been censored and i've been super bored. it's interesting how the sites i most frequently visit can't be accessed without a vpn. i feel really lucky right now to be able to get on blogspot and have somewhat of a decent internet connection so I can post :)

Anyway, I visited Sanya this weekend! Please excuse my food baby. Having a breakfast buffet right before hitting the beach isn't exactly a good idea haha!

crazy bat lady

Thrifted Poncho | New Look scalloped shorts | HM shoes
As promised, an outfit!  This is the poncho that I thought was a scarf when I bought it.  Turns out, I kinda like it as a poncho, even with the whole drama-teacher vibe.   I was wearing this poncho when I saw these scalloped shorts, and when I tried them on, realized they looked better with my outfit than the shorts I was I bought them and changed immediately.  I felt like a child again, when I would wear my new shoes out of the store, and put my old shoes in the box...instant gratification :).

PhotobucketPhotobucketHey all, sorry for the extended absence.  For the most part, the last two weeks have not been too kind to either of us.  For me, it has been finals. I honestly do not understand how i can still have 3 finals, when i have already taken 4.  blech. Plus, before my last 8:30 final, the tram was broken down.  having no car, no bike, and no phone (I just ran out of minutes) I was freaking out.  Luckily, thanks to a replacement bus (that randomly dropped me off in an intersection somewhat close to my final) and my not-so-amazing speed in loafers, I managed to get there just five minutes late.  Great way to go into a final...

ANYWAY, three days in the Basque region (on the border of France and Spain along the Atlantic coast), was exactly what I needed to recharge for my next set of finals this week.  I have no outfit pictures, as I was too busy soaking in the scenery.  The Basque region is literally my dream: mountains, forest AND sandy beaches. It doesn't get any better than that.

I hope to post sometime this week, provided I don't get too grumpy from finals...
As for Whitney, she is currently on vacation.  I know she will come back with some amazing photos, I am fully expecting a recreation of the antm photo shoot with the elephants in Thailand...remember?Photobucket
