Sh!tty Sh!tty Bang Bangs

Happy Friday the 13th everyone! I’m not a complete believer in thinking that this day is filled with bad luck. I think it’s only coincidence that I have misplaced my stylist’s business card because I so badly need to get my bangs trimmed. I could do it myself, but I’d rather not. I’ve done it before in the past and I totally butchered them and I’m rather traumatized by it. Tomorrow I’m taking professional photos in my cap and gown and my bangs are at the point where they poke at my eyes, and the cap pushes them further down into eyeball territory. I normally don’t mind rocking the side-swept look for a bit, except now you can see the hormonal constellation that has magically appeared on the exposed part of my  forehead. Actually, my hormones aren’t to blame for my pimples, stress is. I hardly ever breakout, but when I do it’s because I’m stressed the hell out, and then I panic when I see more than one pimple, which only adds onto the stress.

What am I stressing about now? Well…

  • I have pimples all up on my forehead and the side of my nose
  • I’m worried they’ll show up in my pictures
  • My bangs are shitty
  • I’m worried the cap will make them look shittier
  • I’m worried that I won’t be able to get extra tickets for whoever else wants to go to my commencement ceremony
  • I don’t know where the list of family contact info is so I can’t send out my grad announcements
  • Other things I’d rather not admit here

I’m just complicated like that.

Yesterday at Target I discovered Neutrogena’s Oil Free Acne Stress Control line. I stuck the toner, face wash, and cream into my cart without even reading the labels. I swear by Neutrogena; I knew right away that that line was made just for me! I’m already seeing a difference after 2 uses. Woo!

Target is amazing, you can find almost anything there. If I could only shop at one store for the rest of my life, it would be Target. My closet is 50% Target, 40% H&M, and 10% random stuff. I’m not going anywhere today, but I felt like wearing “outside clothes” rather than lounging around in my pajamas while I work (I telecommute), and in typical Nina fashion, I threw on a dress from Target. Every dress I’m wearing in my posts so far are from Target. I swear to Mossimo I have other things, I just love Target a lot, okay? I got my ring at Target too. Isn’t it rad? I bought it not because I thought it was pretty, but because it reminded me a of mage portal from World of Warcraft. Haha! Oh, I miss that game (sort of).

outfit details:

  • cardigan: H&M

  • harmonica necklace: from TJ Maxx

  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE your outfit! And that ring is beautiful, I love how you worked it into your outfit. I remember seeing that ring at Target, and I wanted it sooo bad… but then realized that I had no idea how to match it to anything!


  2. Hey Girl! I like your blog, it’s so cool … so YOU!
    haha – I can relate to the bang thing, too >.<".
    Nice – I LOVE Target, too!

    Did I ever tell you you're AWESOME?
    Cuz' you are! n______n".


  3. Those boots are amaaaazing! Would you mind sharing a link to where I could find them? (Because I’m not sure what search terms to use other than “boots” and “lace up”… I’m kind of online-shopping-dumb.)
