I feel sooooo bad for being MIA lately! I started a new job & I have a few days left of my math class so life has been pretty crazy. I hope that I will have more free time after next week so I can post more (:
The other someone emailed em & asked to see how I organized my closet. Well this is pretty much it, nothing too fancy. It's color organized from black, blue, green, pink, orange, yellow & white. Then next to the blacks I put all the empty hangers. My closet isn't a walk in so there's not much I can do with it. Below my shirts I have a shelf with all my jeans on it.
Some of you might remember me talking about a race I was going to be doing this month. Well it's finally right around the corner. For those of you who don't know what it is it's an adventure race. That means it consists of running, biking, canoeing, & possible swimming. You have to navigate yourself with only a compass. Throughout the race you have to do checkpoints such as go down a zip line or other fun obstacles.
Here is my outfit for the race! I got all of this from target: plain black & white striped shorts, hot pink tshirt and the black cutoff weightlifting gloves. The clothing is from their C9 brand, the shorts were $12 and the shirt was $10! The gloves were $8 & from the brand Gold's Gym.
As always, feel free to email me at email@example.com if you want to request, suggest, or ask me anything!
This site has some adorable shirts for little children up to the age of four. The shirts come in three different colors: navy, pink and white. The shirts are only £9.95 too (: The designs remind me of Ed Hardy but suppppper adorable! I so wish I knew little kids, I would definitely get them all of these! Their clothes are shipped the very next day, which is so rare these days. The only bad thing for me is that the business is located in the UK which means it would take about 5 days to receive a purchase. Shipping ranges from £2.00 to £8.00 depending on your location. If you know or have little kids I think these shirts would be great.
This is an overview of what I got yesterday at the mall. I went yesterday with my friend. Our intention of going there was so that she could get her cartilage triple pierced but the piercing place in the mall couldn't do three. That left us with a few hours of our afternoon to blow(:
Here is what I got:
snake ear cuff- claire's- $4.50
keep a breast bracelet- zumiez- $4
pink clear rimmed sunglasses- forever 21- $5.80
glamor kills revolutionize art & love tee- zumiez- $22
If you are clumsy like me, you will probably have this problem at least once in your life. The other day I turned around while holding my mascara brush & it flew from my hand. Naturally it landed on the WHITE carpet. My immediate thought was that it would stain. However, I found a simple method to remove it.
1. Get a damp washcloth
2. Add a dime size amount of hand soap
3. Rub the carpet in quick back & forth motions
(if you rub in too long of strokes it will smear the mascara)
4. Keep doing this until the stain is removed
5. Using a damp washcloth (no soap) rub over the area to remove the soap
6. Wallah! Below is a picture of what my carpet looked like afterwards (:
Alright, I'm sure there are PLENTY of things I need to work on to better my blog.

The other day I took my little sister out bathing suit shopping hoping to find her black bottoms. She had no luck but I got these cute shorts. They are from Aeropostale, I normally wouldn't shop there but thats one of her favorite places. While she was in the dressing room I spotted these. The only reason I bothered to try them on is because they were on sale for $10. I thought that was reasonable the only bad thing is that I had to get a size larger in the waist so that they would be long enough.
I just did my nails last night. The color is Sexy In The City by China Glaze. For some reason they look really dark in all the pictures I took. The real color looks like a shimmery aquamarine color.
If anyone was wondering why my posts were few & short lately, I have a good excuse. I was on vacation for awhile & consequently the past couple of posts were quick ones I made up the night before I left. I just scheduled them to be posted while I was gone. Now that I am back I will be posting regularly again!
I found an article the other day written by Yahoo! about drugstore mascaras. If you scroll down the page a bit you can flip through 10 pictures. Each picture of mascara has a rating and a small description. I would really reccomend checking it out if you want to try out some new excellent mascaras.
If you have a question regarding fashion or beauty let me know. Send me an email at email@example.com and I will answer your question in a post on my blog. Also in your email leave me a link to your blog so I can check it out!
Hey everyone! I was wondering if anyone was interested in making a guest post on my blog. It can be about fashion, beauty, reviews, fitness, DIY, etc. If you are interested in doing this comment below & leave me your email or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Aren't teenagers always answering this question or some type of similar variation? Well I have a few things in mind for myself.
If I didn't have to be realistic, I would say model. I would loooove to be a model someday even if it wasn't my entire career. However I have absolutely no way into that field considering the only modeling I have ever done is for Vera Bradley's website.
Another one of my 'fantasy jobs' is an interior or fashion designer. Again, I have little to no experience in this field and choosing this as a career isn't logical or realistic.
Being realistic now, I want to be a teacher. I would love working with younger children or high schoolers. I think that helping kids start their schooling or end it would be great. My personality would be perfect for either age, or at least I think it would (:
Also, the job I have wanted since 3rd grade was to become an architect. My aunt is an architect and I think that is where I must have gotten the idea. If you were to go through my closet you would find various floor plans and multiple drawings of the layout of our actual house draw to scale.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) oil an 8 cup muffin tin, or use paper liners.
In a small bowl, combine oil, milk, and egg. Beat lightly. In a large bowl, mix flour, salt, baking powder and sugar. Toss in chopped strawberries and stir to coat with flour. Pour in milk mixture and stir together.
Fill muffin cups. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 25 minutes, or until the tops bounce back from the touch. Cool 10 minutes and remove from pans.
If you remember the list I posted awhile back, one of the projects I said I wanted to accomplish this summer was creating a shirt like this. Here is my project list. It was verrrry simple to do & only took around an hour.
1. Cut the bottom hem off
2. Make marks 2cm apart all the way around the bottom
3. Cut slices 4-5 inches up the shirt
4. Pull the ends so that the fabric curls
5. OPTIONAL: Cut the ends into 'v' slits & add beads
I really like the color of this. It nearly matches my natural lip color with a hint of shimmer. It is just sheer enough to look give color without feeling too heavy, the pigmentation is perfect. I have read it is similar to MAC's Luster Lipstick but I have never personally tried them. Another good thing about this is how moisturizing it is. It doesn't dry out my lips at all.
The only things that I don't really like is the packaging. In order to twist the product up you have to completely twist the whole stick multiple times which is slightly annoying. But other than that I think the packaging is really sleek and beautiful.
Over all I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in it. For about $8 this is a really good buy, however I had this sent to me for free so I am not quite sure the exact price. However I do know this is available at CVS.
This is my daily look for school. I put the lightest color from the YBF Tempestuous Pallette all over my lid then I put the middle color on the crease & blend it together. After that I curl my lashes & add my Sheer Cover Extra Length Mascara. It is so simple but I really like how it looks.
I just got this powder a few days ago & really like it. I have it in 2-2.5 Beige. Instead of wearing foundation I use this. I have combo skin and since the weather has been heating up here my face has started to look more oily. This gives me a very nice natural matte look. It doesn't look cakey or dry at all. It keeps me shine free all day, even after I work out. I would say this has a light buildable coverage. For $7 this is one of the best deals ever. I heard Rimmel Stay Matte, MAC Blot Powder, & the Matte FX are very similar products.
