Style Icons

Saturday, June 21, 2014

I haven't really had any actual style icons up until a few weeks ago. I would just see a picture of a celebrity and say 'oh, that's a cute outfit', but never really paid much attention to their constant wardrobe or obsess over their style. I say that like it's a bad thing, but I don't really think it is. Now I've been starting to admire and appreciate other people's style and fashion choices. 

As of now, two people come to mind when I hear the words 'style icon'. 
Maia Mitchell and Kylie Jenner.
They both have that modern, grungy, not trying too hard look. While Kylie's style is more understandably put together, Maia's is more laidback. 

Maia Mitchell:






Kylie Jenner:






That's all for now, folks!
Who are some of your style icons?

Summer Renewal

Wednesday, June 11, 2014



As you have noticed, I've been gone lately. But now it's summer. Finals are over, school is out, and I'm starting high school in less than three months. I've been thinking about that a lot - high school. I mean, how could you not? It's..everything. At least that's what everybody thinks about it.

A few weeks ago, one of my teachers explained that if we had one time in our life where we could start a completely new slate it would be right now. Here, most of the kids are going off to different schools. We'll be in new environments with totally new faces and challenges. No one will know us and we won't know them. So over the summer, we could completely change ourselves and basically restart our lives. That's a pretty big opportunity if you ask me. And I intend to take it.

So, this summer, I encourage you to take maybe a single small quality that you don't particularly like about yourself and attempt to change it. Who knows? It might make things a lot easier for you. It's nice to get a fresh start.

I Blame Veronica Roth

Wednesday, April 9, 2014

I've been absent lately from the blogosphere. I'll get right out and say it. It was all Veronica Roth's fault.

If you're not familiar with the Divergent trilogy, I'm here to tell you to get familiar with it.




A couple weeks ago (about two or three) I innocently picked up the Divergent book, not expecting much. But, boy, were my expectations low. This is one of the best books I've ever read. Possibly my favorite. It's not anything like the Hunger Games and I'm not really sure why people are saying that. The only similarity is that it's set in the future..seriously..that's it.

I'm almost done the third book, Allegiant, but I'm trying to read it slowly so I can savor every word. I really wish it never ended, to be honest.

I know what happens in the third book (I mean like the super big thing..if you read it, you know what I'm talking about). I saw spoilers on Tumblr before I even started the series, so. But that doesn't take away from the quality of my reading experience.

And if you know a thing or two about these books, you'll know they aren't short. To me, an ameatuer reader, they looked like the biggest things I've ever seen. All three books are 500+ pages. To read all of those in just a few short weeks is a pretty big feat for me.

I've also been busy with Camp NaNoWriMo, which is writing so give me a break. Hopefully, I'll have some more beauty posts in the future. I've been dressing up more for various things and trying out new products and such, so I'll definitely fill you guys in on that eventually.

Ciao for now, cuties!

NaNoWriMo

Wednesday, March 26, 2014




Ah..the time for Camp Nano. I can practically smell it. The new Internet friends, the late nights, the thirsty writing, the sugar fueled fingers tapping away on the keys. It's all there.

NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. As most of you probably know, that's in November. But the cool kids at the NaNo offices host a smaller NaNoWriMo two other times a year. One is in April and the other is in July. Since these are the Spring/Summer months, they are named Camp NaNoWriMo. I've heard about them for over a year, but after attempting NaNo last November (and, well, failing to complete my novel), I decided Camp NaNo would be a much better option. You can make any word count goal you want for yourself in these months, whereas in November, you're supposed to opt for 50,000 (the standard novel length word count).

My word count goal for April is 20,000 which I will hopefully surpass eventually. I just wanted to make a little post about it to inform you guys! It's really cool and fun to do and you can make tons of new friends on social media websites with it. If any of you are doing Camp NaNo or decide to do it last minute, just hit me up and we can talk alllll about it!

In Case You Wanted To Know...#1

Wednesday, March 12, 2014



I apologize for not blogging for almost two whole weeks. Everything in my life is coming  so fast and all of a sudden, I'm always busy. But I'll be blogging more this week, for sure!

That and I totally could have chosen blogging over binge watching The Fosters on Netflix, but whatever...Seriously though, that's a quality television show, let me just tell you. Actually the best show I think I've ever seen in my entire fourteen years.

As I'm telling you this, I'm listening to Callie Jacobs themed playlists on 8tracks with my brother's green Beats headphones. I'm also reading the latest Seventeen magazine, which is fabulous as always.

So, let me tell you some stuff about what I've been doing recently.

Play practice at school has been consuming quite a bit of my time. This year, we're putting on High School Musical. I have a total of one line that is..wait for it...two words. But I still have to go to all the practices and all that jazz. But it's pretty fun for the most part, actually.

I got third in my category at States for archery! It was my first tournament, so that's pretty good, if you ask me. I don't care what my place or score was, though. I felt really good that day and even if I came in last place, I would have been proud of myself. That being said, I've been practicing every day.

This Friday night, I'm going to an Ellie Goulding concert in Philly!! I'm super excited..it's actually gonna be my first concert if you don't count DigiTour back in October. I'll probably be going to the Lana Del Rey concert in May and I'm going to the One Direction concert in August, so that's pretty exciting too!

I've been compiling lists upon lists of makeup items and things that I need want. Hopefully, I can get my hands on a few of them soon. Some of them include the Tarte Amazonian Clay blushes and the Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation.

But let's get back to the Fosters. I'm so obsessed with that show, it's ridiculous. I've seen every episode almost twice and I just started on Sunday afternoon.

I've also discovered that I really want to get into photography and start playing the guitar (which is unusual because all my life I've watched people play guitar and it just looks so difficult, but I think I could do it..eventually.)

I have some blog posts planned that aren't just as boring and useless as this one. But in the meantime, leave me some comments! How have you been? Any big milestones or setbacks? I genuinely want to know, so hit me up in the comments!

February Faves

Friday, February 28, 2014



Today, I thought I would do the usual end of the month favorites post. Mostly because I can't think of anything better, but I'll just roll with it.

As I'm writing this right now, I'm painting my nails with Essie's Mint Candy Apple. It's one of their more famous nail polishes and it's just the perfect winter into spring color! I can only paint my nails on the weekends which I've been taking advantage of lately. So since that had to relevance to the post whatsoever, without further ado I present to you: my February Favorites.

TV Shows: New Girl, Bates Motel, Teen Wolf

Beauty: Naked 3 Palette (as always), Tarte Maracuja Oil

Music: Ellie Goulding (I'm seeing her live in 2 weeks from today eeep!!), Bombadil, The 1975, The Neighbourhood

Books: The Book Thief, Divergent

Apps: The Hunt, 8tracks
