okay, my mom hates certain things and she would never give a single cent to help me buy them haha.. of course now, i usually buy stuff on my own but still my friends crack up when we talk about it: Among the things she shudders at the thought of buying are: 1) distressed anything! she hates them!!! she thinks they look dirty 2) fake pearls. she would rather give me money for real ones. 3) plastic bangles 4) juicy track suits, she would rather buy me terry short shorts or nike dresses for jogging 5) flip flops. she can't take it how i love them so much! hmm... i will come back here..
