the hardest thing to find

do you know what the hardest thing for a teen to find is? besides the perfect black dress and go with anything flats. A few things, the perfect pair of heels and the perfect pair of wedges. Most that are going through the stores we shop at are sky high - almost impossible to walk or stand in and are simply inappropriate for everyday wear. Well, at least for me (I'm not in college yet!). Here's an easy way to ease into wearing heels/wedges, and for those "classy" girls out there - here's your guide to wedges and heels, none past 3 inches in height.

Here it goes ladies... (and gents) - we're going from priciest, to least.

Gone Fishing

I went fishing for the first time... ever. Now, I do live near a few bodies of water, so this fact is pretty much a big surprise for everyone who lives where I do. Summer days are filled with lazy days at the beach, eating crab patty burgers at the local shack, surfing etc. Think california loving, but not quite (i don't live anywhere near cali). So, obviously, it's pretty surprising that i've never been fishing before. i went fishing, expecting nothing much -boring laziness and perhaps a tan. But!, what did happen was i caught a 30 lb striper bass :) yes! i know, if you're into fishing at all, that's a pretty decent fish. Especially for ones first fish...ever. From that I also recieved a good amount of cash from the pool (becuase i ended up catching the biggest fish on the boat).

Now, you guys are probably curious as to what makeup i wore fishing. (isn't that what we're alwalys curious of?) I decided to go natural and wear my Almay Natural Makeup Foundation (more like a tinted moisturizer, goes on really light and smooth) and topped off my oily spots with a little bit of the Everyday Minerals Pressed Powder and used the Swirled Cosmetics Kabuki brush. After, I applied the Gold Aura Accenting Cream Shadow from Maybelline into my waterline and lower lash line and a little bit of the Prestige black Kohl liner in my inner waterline. The result? Intensely glowy, sparkling eyes that made my brown eyes pop in all the winners photos!

isn't it funny, how something so beloved before can dissapear? and when you go to check back upon it, it feels almost as if things were exactly the same? Yet, when you look around - you find yourself friendless, alone and things completely deserted, nothing like they were before.

treasure the time you have with something - because i can guarantee you, it will surely end.

a new post, a new fancy, life, and changes

oh my, i've turned into one of those girls - an obssesed makeup guru who neglects her blog. but, i do come back happy to find new followers - so i'd like to say thank so much for taking the time for following my blog and reading it :) Also, if any of you are subscribers on youtube (which I supposed many of you are), thank you so so so much for ALMOST 1000 subscribers. You guys are all the best! A new "era" of summer is so close that it's really palpable. I can almost touch it- yet I'm one final (and on more tuesday) away from this. That's how close it is. I'm so close - I can let go of school, drama, stress and headaches and embrace a summer of fun.

so they say...

But, in reality it's quite the opposite of your ideal carefree summer. The summer before your junior year of highschool. Kids, you know what that means... SAT PREP. Yes, hours and hours devoted to mindless questions about the structure of sentences and triginometry of triangles. Not on that, I'm going to a dance summer intensive and researching in a science lab. Just when I can gasp for a moment of freedom, I'm strapped back down again. It's such a yearly thing, it just never stops...ever. So, I decided that since "i'll have more time in the summer" I'm going to document my daily trips to manhatthan. My trips to Florida, Upstate new york and the such. I'm sure you guys are interested in where I go, what I do, what I'm wearing, and what new makeup look I concoted for the day. Pictures galore honeys. I doubt that there are going to be daily posts (do you know how long those pictures take to upload?!? eonnsss!), but i'm hoping for 3 times a week with photo laden posts. Also, there will hopefully be a boost in the frequency of videos (but that's doubtful hahah).

Anyways, moving on to the meat of the post, I'd like to ask you guys a question to think about. Why do you like your favorite guru(s) on youtube? Or your favorite bloggers? Is it because of their amazing personality? Or is it because of their stunning talent? I personally believe that the viewers should love a guru because of her stellar talent, not only because of her personality. I think having a fun personality could add to the fact that you're amazing. It should be like a bonus - not the whole test. Just something for the readers to ponder about, I've defintely done a lot of thinking about it.

About my life now, well it's hellish for sure. It's "finals week" but I haven't another final until next tuesday. I did watch karate kid! it was so cute :) jackie chan + cute 12 year old kid = adorable. It was one of those slightly scary/very cheesy disney movies - but it was cute all the same. It kind of made me feel like I could do anything I set my mind to ... for a second. If only that were the truth.
