First I got this amazing vintage coat from Buffalo Exchange, in Allston. It was only $19!!! What a steal.
At Goodwill I bought 3 purses (along with some other things, but these were amazing) The first is my new Yetta (Fan's grandma in The Nanny Named Fran) gold purse. Sooooo pretty! Im going to use it for notebooks and paperwork. Its going to be my fancy work purse for important things.
Then I also got this beautiful little black hand bag. It was a must have.
I also ended up buying this adorable pin-up dress from Stop Staring, at Buffalo Exchange, paid $10.50 for it
As well as this amazing hot red leather skirt for $11! To hot to pass up.
My first week here I bought this really pretty pin from Bobby's From Boston, it was the first thing Matthew sold me :-) <3
So! thats just some of the neat things Ive gotten since I got here. Theres more but these are the really awesome items. Take it easy everyone!! xoxo!

Here are some pictures from my journey! Mom and Grams, you would love it here.
Somerville has a lot of hills, some are way steeper than others.
This lady's garden was so pretty, and it smelled so good with flowers everywhere!
Yes!!! It was like a little piece of home seeing this haha.
Buffalo exchange was good, I didnt buy anything, but it was cool to see the store and check out what else was around. It was a really pretty day and Im just enjoying it as much as I can before it gets to cold. Xoxo! I miss everyone!

I love my new job. I have had a great week. It is tiring but its something new and takes a bit of getting used to. I love that I can show my tattoos and wear cute outfits now. With it being in the high 70's I got a chance to wear shorts, with out tights. Matthew said he wanted to see me in my favorite plaid shirt with my yellow shorts, so I wore this for him :-)
I only had time to take a few pictures before I had to catch the bus to work.
I miss everyone and my family a lot, but I really cant complain about Boston so far. Its been great hanging with Matthew, Steve and Ashleigh have been sooooo generous and kind, Ive had a really great time hanging out with Ashleigh a lot too. We went to the goodwill the other day, scored some awesome finds. We have a big day planned Sunday. My mom finally shipped my package, so Ill some more of my things next week! A little piece of home. I hope everyone else has been doing good and staying as lovely as ever. Have a great weekend!! Xoxo!

That big news I had. I moved to Boston! Haha, well I came up here as everyone knows to visit, I ended up getting offered a job here at Second Time Around and I decided to stay. I meet a great guy also who said I could stay with him when I need to. Im currently staying with Steve and his girlfriend Ashleigh, Steve from Big D and the Kids Table. Life has been moving by so fast but thigns are so great! Ive been having a wonderful time and have done so much in the last week than I had in a month in Tampa. As I adjust to yet another new thing, please bare with me haha.
Here are some pictures from over the weekend! I went to the farmers market with Matthew, we found a yard sale too. I popped over to Providence for a night as well.
Matthew's hat collection
Matthew took these two of me on the train back to Boston
Matthew and I, now mind you, it was 8am and we were tried as all hell.
I miss everyone a lot and my family, but so far things have been really good for me here. Its a new start and a new life in Boston.

I have had these shiny oxfords by Steve Madden for awhile now and have never worn them...and Im so mad I havent! They seriously need to be broken in. I got them at Ross, on sale for $12. They are amazing, and are going to be a big hit for me in the coming months.
I am really loving my new hair cut and just keep getting such nice compliments about it. I was talking to my friend Heather about how much a hair cut can change so much and make you feel so much better. Its like the first step in the change process lol. Since I didnt want to wear a necklace I remembered I have a ton of earrings to choose from! I forget a lot of simple things like that I re-pierced my second ear piercing and I can wear earrings again haha. Im such a goof sometimes.
Oh and the reason Im wearing sunglasses is because I didnt feel like putting makeup on, as you can tell its not that bright outside lol.
Things have been good, I have so many great things coming up. Ill be modeling a lot more and styling photo shoots. I am constantly finding more things to add to my closet. I went thrifting with my mom yesterday we had a great day. I got 3 pairs of shorts at Sunshine Thirft, some awesome vintage slips, a vest with giraffes! I didnt have time to look for nick nacks or tea cups, but Im glad I got clothes for my trip. I am modeling Saturday, before I leave, and Im just working everyday till Monday. Ill try to post something before I leave, but I think Im going to bring my laptop so I can talk about things in Boston. Everyone have a great week, Friday is almost here! Stay lovely! xoxo!

This is one of the first pictures I had taken of it.
My best friend Teresa and I had talked about getting this tattoo, and it just stuck with me all through high school and when I told Jarrod about it he thought it was a bad ass tattoo idea and then suggested I get his friend Lucky to do it. If she ever decided to get it tattooed on her it was her idea too lol, but I like having it and really not seeing to many tattoos like this. I sat for 2, 2 hour sessions. Lucky did the outline first, then I went back and get it shaded. I remember too my appointment was February 13th.
If you have any tattoos tell me about your favorite!
I hope everyone's holiday weekend was lovely. Xoxo!
