Sandy Madness

So... Sandy... that was crazy. I lost power for an entire week! It was terrible! Luckily, I left my house and went somewhere with internet, power and heat! It is crazy how dependent we are on electricity now a days.

College Single Jitters

When I saw this quote, I immediately thought of my relationship. As most of you know, I am going off the college next year. The usual approach is to just end your high school relationship and move on to college and go your separate ways. As of now, this is still the plan but it is not a plan that makes me happy. It is not like we have talked about it or anything but I think it is understood. It is not like I can see myself getting married to him but it is hard for me to imagine my life without him. It is just so much easier to imagine my future with him. Sure, I have been single for the past 15 years of my life but I feel like once you experience something so great, you don't want to go back.

Maybe it has to do with me being a hopeless romantic. I want my happily ever after, and I want to find my prince charming as soon as possible. I know they say you have to kiss a few frogs before you find a prince, but I would not mind skipping the whole process. Then again, I am not comfortable with having dated only one person my entire life. I feel like I am getting ahead of myself here.

Have anyone of you been in a similar situation? Comment below with your stories and suggestions :) I'd love to hear them :)

Inspire 5

Have you ever felt like everything was falling apart? Recently, I felt that way about my relationship. Everything seemed to be going wrong. I was devastated how could something so perfect go so bad. Then I came to the realization that for the year we have been together every obstacle we encountered has only made us stronger as a couple.

If you feel like your world is crashing down, don't fret. Life has a way of working itself out. If something is meant to be, it will be. I know that sounds cheesy but that is truly what I believe in.

If people are judging you, I suggest just ignoring them. Those who matter would not do such a thing. It is not worth your time and emotions :)

Inspire #4

Hi guysss <3 Sorry I haven't been posting these. As some of you may know, I am a senior in high school and it is not yet time where we can all slack off :P

Anyways... sometime when life gets rough, all you can do is smile, breathe, and believe that everything is going to be okay. If you ever have those moments where you feel like everything is going wrong, don't stop believing. Know that you have friends who love and support you. Don't be afraid to rely on them. After all that's what friends are for.

Inspire #3

I just wanted to say that I am BEYOND nervous for college. I can't wait for the freedom but I am really going to miss my friends. I feel like we spend such a great portion of our lives building these relationships yet when college comes around they all just fall apart. I mean how many couples stay together after high school. Its so devastating because I feel like I am so happy where I am right now and I am so scared for that to change. Like I wrote in one of my previous posts, what if I can't find anyone better. It is actually so scary. I get teary eyed just thinking about it.

 I would love to hear about your experiences with change! Comment below

Inspire #1

Hi guys so I decided that every day I am going to try to post an inspirational picture or quote. Unless I say so the pictures probably aren't mine and I found it off of tumblr. Anywhooo I hope you enjoy.
For all of you toughies out there, it is okay to let go and be vulnerable sometimes. Let your friends know what you're feeling and it'll be a tremendous relief.

UPDATE: Maybelline Matte Mousse Foundation

So I know I raved about this product and I apologize to anyone who went out and bought it. After using it for about a week I realized that it was breaking me out. I promptly stopped and my skin has been clearing up.
The Loreal mascara is still amazing and I love it.


Honestly guys, I am more of an SAT person. I love having extra time to nap during my test and I love that I get to rotate sections. The ACT is just way too long for me. My attention span simply CAN NOT do it. Not to mention the science section is impossible. Even though everything else is slightly easier, I don't actually recommend it. If you have any questions just comment below and they will be answered :)

Theses are the steps.
You will need a black eyeliner and a purple eyeliner. [pencil liners work best]
1. Tightline your eyes with a black eyeliner
2. On top of your black eyeliner make a thin and subtle line of purple.
This will really make your eyes pop and it looks really pretty!

Make-up Haul

Hi, guys I recently stopped by my nearby Duane Reade to pick up a few products. I got a new foundation and mascara.

So the first product I got was Maybelline's dream matte mousse. OMG I love it so far. The color blends into my skin really well. It doesn't have the best coverage but you can totally layer it on. I haven't used it long enough to know whether or not it will break me out, but I will post later if it does. Also, the texture feels amazing. I usually apply my foundation with a brush but I LOVE using my hands.
The second product I got was Loreal's Voluminous Million Lashes in Black. I LOVE IT. It makes my lashes look so long! It layers really well too. Also it separates your lashes and doesn't clump. I strongly recommend this!

SAT Tips and Tricks

The SATs are one of the most important tests you'll ever take in your life. Well, that's how they seem. This one test seems to have the ability to determine which college we go to and our success in the future. I am not a genius nor and I ever going to get that coveted 2400 but I do know some tips and tricks that I think will help!

My #1 advice would be to take practice tests. Practice, practice, and practice. You can never practice enough. The SAT is always in the same format. The questions are all essentially the same. Practicing will allow you to familiarize yourself with the test and everything on it.

I would also suggest investing in Collegeboard's SAT Study Guide! It comes with 10 different practice tests. Since Collegeboard creates the test you will be guaranteed relevant information.

For the essay I would suggest 1.5 to 2 pages of writing. The intro only has to be 2-3 sentences. Just get to the point! The body paragraphs should b filled with relevant and supporting information. If you run out of time, make sure you write at least 1-2 sentences for the conclusion. Use strong vocabulary and strong arguments and this should guarantee you at least a 5.

Also, Princeton Review's Grammar Smart is AMAZING! It is filled with grammar rules and tips! It is a must buy for all test takers.

  3. Finish my summer reading (I still have two books, reading questions and an essay left)
  4. College Essay
  5. College Supplements
  6. DRIVE [I have no clue how I am going to pass my drivers exam]
Comment below with things you have still yet to do!

If you're anything like me, you probably have been scouring the earth to try to stay organized in a cute and fashionable way. Recently I have been looking up some cute DIY organization ideas for a planner for school
Cute Planner Idea

I love the idea above. The only problem I have with it is that I am lazy at times. Drawing a new one every week would prove to be too much for me.

So I recently started a list book. I found a unused little spiral notebook in which I have been making lists.
Cute List Ideas
I was inspired when I saw listography books on Tumblr. They are basically books filled with pages instructing you to come up with lists. I thought it was the cutest thing, however, instead of spending money on these books, why not make my own? So that's exactly what I did. I am sure all of you  have a spare notebook laying around. Fill it up with lists of your own!
Have fun! and comment below with your thoughts and comments :D I would love to hear about your ideas for lists!

Clean Slate?

I have been told so many times that I worry too much. I realize this is true but I can't help it. I always like to think about my future whether it invokes happy or sad emotions.

Recently I have been thinking about college. This time next year I will be blogging from my college dorm room. This to me is both exciting and scary. Ever since I was little the thought of going to college was thrilling and I couldn't wait to leave. Now that its this close I am terrified. I have made so many great friends that I can't bear the thought of leaving behind.

Also, there is this guy. I have been with him for about a year now. It's been one crazy ride. More ups than downs which makes it ultimately worth it. We shall call him ☆. I have very conflicted feelings about this. On one hand it may be better to go into college with a clean slate. On the other... What if I can't find another guy like him?

Anyways, I still have a while before actually leaving for college!

Summer Reading [& a tiny little rant]

So I've finally decided to start my summer reading which is a GREAT idea that I should have thought of months ago. Oh wait! I did think of it, but you know what this thing called procrastination got in the way. So now here I am with a month left of summer and I have well ALOT of work to do. Not only do I have 3 books to read and an essay to write. I have to memorize a map of europe. Oh and get this my parents expect me to ace this upcoming act. However since my dad is Asian he thinks the best approach is to tell me how he truly believes I will fail and do even worse than my first time. It's really absurd. The man is absolutely
positively INSANE and oh so annoying.

[the picture is of the book I am currenly attempting to read]

hi :)

So I am starting a blog. I'm not a spectacular writer nor do I lead an "interesting" life but you know what I'm gonna blog about it anyways. In life some things you just gotta do for yourself. Feel free to follow me or just check in when you are really bored.

So the real true reason that I am now blogging is because of two reasons.
1. My instagram stopped working and people on tumblr don't seem to appreciate my I guess I'll just have to share them with you.
2. I keep a diary however I feel stupid while writing in it. It's like I am talking to no one... well I mean that's ultimately what Im doing right now but i'm hoping someone will one across my page and read this.

Feel free to comment but please be nice... that would be much preferred

hehe look it's my Teddy Bear that I got for Valentines Day last year :) I love it sososososo super much :D
