this is the start of something new

(*cringe* sorry, I couldn't think of a better title. But, you know, some good ole' fashion High School Musical doesn't hurt.. ahem..)

Anyways, if you are here, that means you are at quirkyexplosion.blogspot.com. Oh la la! Yes, I changed my site name. I've wanted to for a while, so I was like "stop dreaming and do it, girl" (except, you know, not.) I think it suits my blog better. Anyways, you can read more about that mumbo-jumbo-fun-stuff right about here!

My mum told me not to "dress up for summer" (apparently sun does not = warmth). Guess what? I'm such a rebel and did anyways. I know, I know. Please hold your gasps. I didn't listen to Mummmyyy! Nananabooboo. Oh, wait. Let's be mature here..

Purchased this awesomely childish bag at Value Village, which I centered my outfit around. I feel as though a child designed this. Which I love.

I'm particularly excited for Monday because it is the Value Village 50% off sale. And I have no school that day! I'm pretty much prepared to fight the old ladies for the dressing rooms. Warning: If you are elderly and plan on going to such a historical event, be prepared to face the wrath of my ex-wrestling skills. Just saying.

I try to pretend I can take photos. Now I'm pretending I can edit videos. Enjoyish? :)

If you guys could update your links to my new name (but same blog!), I would appreciate it so much that I would jump through the computer screen, have your pictures come to life and hug you. Obviously this is not possible, but just to put it in perspective. But honestly, comment if you do and I will virtually hug you or something equally gratifying.

Thanks a bunch! Also, I can't believe the number of comments I've gotten. Thank you so much, I will visit your blogs very soon!
