Tropics and Turtles

Outfit://Muscle Tee - Forever21//Skirt and coat (not worn) - Pull&Bear//Bag - from a local Store in Prince Edward, HK//Sunnies - H&M//Watch - Casio//

Ignore the face. Little miss grumpy just had a bad day. But don't fret, it's nothing much of a deal and I'm in a better mood now. I just hate it when I had something really good planned and then failed to materialize, you know. Like If I've already had my mind set to do something very particular for that day and end up not getting it done despite my efforts, then expect heavy drama. That pretty much is what happened today<insert more excuses here, blah blah>. But it's not like I can do something about it so what else but frown? I know I'm such a loser, forgive me. We all go through days like this.

On a lighter note, well in case you haven't noticed, Little Miss Violet has finally got a domain! Yay! But let me tell you a short back story to this because as you can see, I'm  using "www.carlaviolet.com" instead of the default "www.misscarlaviolet.com". You see, I purchased the latter a long long time ago. But out of my stupidity and because I was such a newbie, I bought it without thinking and without choosing the best possible domain host. As a result, I wasn't able to integrate it with my blogger account and lo, wasted it. Now that I've finally figured out how to integrate a domain name with blogger, I could'n't retrieve my old domain name anymore. Must have cancelled it because it was useless or it must have otherwise expired, not so sure. But when I tried to re-register it, alas, no longer available. So what else can I do but purchase a new one. Anyway, it doesn't really make any difference. In fact I think this new one is more personal so I can't be more satisfied. =)

That's all I have for you guys tonight. Fingers crossed for a better day tomorrow. Happy weekend!

  11. Hi Carla! Thanks for your comment!
    I'm lovin' the 80's vibe on this look! The skirt is so cute and looks perfect with your fun graphic tee. Oh how I loved the Ninja Turtles growing up. Wasn't there a movie coming out about them? I thought I heard that a while back.
