PLL - The Silence of E. Lambs (S5 Ep.7)

I know I've been MIA for a little bit, but I really haven't found any of the episodes recently that interesting. Don't get me wrong I do watch PLL religiously...its just that some episodes don't have me at the edge of my seat like others. 

ON THE OTHER HAND, I really enjoyed last Tuesday's episode for the simply fact that I think that the "Ali Has A Twin" theory has finally come to light! As much as the producers deny that they will use this theory, I can't help but not believe them. For those of you who don't know, Ali has a twin in book, Courtney, and let me tell you that she is not as crazy as they make her seem. 

With the help of Ezra, Spencer has installed cameras that face the barn because she wants to see what Melissa is up to at all hours. While watching the videos she notices that Ali is in her backyard and she automatically sends an "S.O.S" to all the girls. Emily mentions that she wasn't wearing that at the dinner that Pam had made for Ali. The girl in the image looked all disheveled and not put together like Ali did. 

 
I know this isn't the clearest picture, but it's obvious that it is Ali or her twin. I can't wait to see what happens next week and I want to see if the girls will confront her about it. 

Tuesday's episode is supposed to be suspenseful and hopefully it doesn't disappoint!

Thanks for reading!

Collective Haul: June 2014

Hey guys ! 

If you didn't know I went to the Poconos at the end of June for a little R&R and did a little shopping while I was there.

 I have an extremely simple style, I don't branch out and get clothes that are only going to be "in" for a short amount of time. I wear what I like and it doesn't bother me in the slightest that it maybe out dated. I dress very girly and I tend to make sure that all my clothes go together so I save time getting dressed in the morning to go to school or work. I love blacks, whites, greys, and blushes, they for the most part transition nicely in all seasons and match very well with each other. 

But anyways, let me show you what I got ! 

lace blouse - TJ Maxx 
light denim wash boyfriend jeans - Old Navy

I actually wore this outfit on Thursday to a dinner with my friends after work...lol. I usually never pair light colors with light jeans, its not for any particular reason, I just don't like how it looks. But this combo looked so cute, the delicate-ness of the top and boyfriend jeans create such a nice balance. 

Lucky Brand

This shirt is definitely one of those tops that look better on than on the hanger. I wasn't too in love with it when I first saw it at the Lucky store, but that all changed when I tried it on. I can't wait to pair it with white jeans when I go on vacation. 


Tell me this isn't the cutest shirt you have ever seeeeennnnn. I love J.Crew, I think they make amazing clothes and they fit my style perfectly. (FYI - they have a student discount of 15% so make sure you have your student ID when you shop there !)


I love the Old Navy Rockstar jeans! They are super stretchy, comfortable, and reasonably priced. I got the grey pair for work since I really don't have a dress code, I was eyeing them for a while but they never had my size and I finally found them for $15 in PA. BARGAIN ! 

Gap Factory 

When you love something get it in every color! Well, I only got two of the 5 colors they had, but still. They are so soft and have a peek-a-boo back; I can't wait to pair them with boyfriend jeans or jean shorts for a nice laid back but still put together look. 

Wristlet, Pineapple Key Chain, Card Case, & Sunglasses - Coach Factory
Lauren Ralph Lauren Tate Tote - Macy's

I think that wristlets are the perfect traveling wallets, they hold all your stuff and you could fit your phone and a lipgloss in there. I usually buy wristlets in neutral colors, so I don't have to worry about it not matching with my outfits. 

 The floral card case I got to hold my metrocard and school ID, its something you could just throw in any of your bags and you don't have to worry about losing/misplacing your metrocard because we all know what a pain in the ass it is to pay a dollar every time you lose one. 

The sunnies are my new favorite pair and the item I liked the most from everything I purchased! They are a cat eye shape and look good and just about any face shape, I have chubby cheeks so finding a pair that doesn't go up when I smile and laugh is a great feeling.

I got this beautiful bag for my birthday, it literally holds EVERYTHING. Its such a gorgeous color that will transition well season to season.

MAC Lipstick in "Gel", MAC Lipglass in "Gaga 2", MAC Lipglass in "Pangea", MAC eyeshadow in "Silver Screen
Swatches (L to R): Silver Screen, Gaga 2, Gel, & Pangea

In some outlets they have the Cosmetics Company Outlet (CCO) and let me tell it is God's gift to any makeup junkie's world. It carries MAC, Estee Lauder, Clinque, Bobbi Brown, Smashbox, Origins, Bumble & Bumble, and other brands for discounted prices. It is literally my favorite store ever, you could get your hands on older MAC collections for a few dollars less. The "Gaga 2" is such a beautiful nude and I couldn't get it the first time it was released so I was jumping for joy when I saw it. 

Nike Flyknits - Nike Outlet 
Adrienne Vittadini sandals - TJ Maxx 

I'm not much of a sneaker person and when I saw these and tried them on I knew I had to get them (they were also only $50, BARGAIN! ). They are so comfy and lightweight and sooooo cute. These sandals were such a steal and they are so comfortable, I walk a lot so comfortable shoes that I could walk in and can tolerate standing an hour on the train is something I need in all my shoes. 

SOOOOO, this is the end of this haul! I hope you enjoyed this super long post! 
Have a fab weekend!  

xoxo,

PLL's 100th Episode !


OH. MY. GOODNESS.

This was such an amazing episodes with so many twist and turns. This episode was so worth the wait ! I think I'm literally going to have a nervous breakdown waiting for the next episode, my heart can't take it !

I don't even know where to begin. . . .I guess I'll start with the fact that Jenna is back in Rosewood ! When I first saw her arrive, I already knew that there must be some type of hidden agenda, and there is; but, I didn't even think that new girl that Emily is helping would be apart of it. SHE'S ONLY BEEN THERE FOR 5 MINUTES!

I DO NOT TRUST ALI, NOT EVEN FOR ONE SECOND. I honestly think she is playing with Emily's emotions so she could at least have one of the girls on her side. I mean they all know she's a liar, especially after everything that went down with Mona that was caught on tape. She even had the audacity to say that she "underestimated" Mona, how can you underestimate someone that ran over their own "best friend" even if it was just an accident.

EZRIA! I'm honestly so happy they are back together. I think he's going to be the one to make Aria get over the fact that she killed Shauna.

Spencer's mom is leaving her dad! YESSSSSS. I can not wait to see how that is going to play out especially now that Melissa is back. Mrs. Hastings is an attorney and she can tell when someone is bullshitting her and she knows that he has something to do with Mrs. D's murder. 

HALEB! I'm so happy Caleb's backkk. But, I'm also kinda sad because I really like Travis </3. I do think that Lucas was trying to get Hanna really drunk so that he could do something do her and Travis took her home right before he had the chance. He has all this pent up resentment towards Ali that it would only make sense that he would want to hurt one of her friends. 

Now on to the big KABOOM at the end of the episode....WHY WOULD THEY WANT TO BLOW UP TOBY'S HOUSE ?!?! Something is telling me that someone is going to make it seem like they wanted to kill Jenna and Shawna. Of course A is now back and I'm extremely excited to see what misery she is going to put the girls through. 

Can't wait till Tuesday! 

Thanks for reading ! 

xoxo, 
A

Updates

Greetings Fellow TAD Readers! 

There is currently detrimental downpour outside my window and it is also thundering, which means that Sabrina(my dog) is going cray. 

I know I've been MIA for a week or so but I have a very good excuse ! I was on vacation with my family in the Poconos last week and this week I was catching up with everything (work, life, etc). My family & I have been going to Poconos every summer for the last 18 years or so. Its super relaxing, you're literally in a cabin in the middle of a forest and sometimes you see deers and groundhogs, its so great. It's close to the outlets (guess who spent A LOT of time there? THIS GIRLLLLL) and the best part is that you will NEVER bump into someone you know. NYC is such a small place, everyone is so interconnected with everyone that basically the friend of my friend is the friend of my other friend who happens to be the cousin of my other friend. They also have a lake where you can fish on a little row boat and you see little ducks floating gracefully across the water. I honestly wish I would have taken some pictures with my new camera, but I didn't and spent most of my time resting. Sometimes its just so amazing to not live the city life for a week. 

If you haven't noticed I didn't do my weekly review of PLL for past 2 weeks and its because I haven't been too crazy about the episodes. They've been kinda dragging and not very suspenseful, but I am looking forward to next week's episode since its the 100th episode and CALEB IS BACKKKKKKK!! AND ALISON AND MONA GOING TO FIGHT. 

I'm working on a couple of new post for next week...I'm thinking maybe I'll do a haul and show you guys some of the things I purchased at the outlets. I'm also thinking I want to do a makeup tutorial but, I'm not sure if I actually want to record a video or do a picturial.  

 For the most part this is what's been happening in my life...I should be back on Saturday with my haul and all that good stuff.

Thanks for your support and for reading! 

xoxo,
Amanda

PS. HAVE A HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY !!
