Fancy Fridays

17 Jan

Hello everyone! Last year in the Fall Semester I decided to do a Fancy Friday as an excuse to wear my lovely lolita clothes. I unfortunately didn’t do very well with that as more and more school work piled on but I thought that I would share with you the outfits that I actually managed to dress myself up in. This isn’t everything that I did but some of the ones that I did get to wear.

No Beauty Spending Challenge

15 Jan

Hello everyone! A blog post for to day on a challenge that I am doing. Essentially what happened was me realizing that I spent a lot (and I mean a lot) of money on beauty products in the past year. So much that when the Sephora VIB Rouge program kicked in I was already a member which is crazy to think that I spent $1000 at Sephora in the past year. Granted prices in Canada are a lot higher than the US but more than $1000 at Sephora. That is insane and it’s not something I can afford again this year (plus the perks aren’t worth it).

So my sister challenged me to not spend anything beauty related (because she knows about the hoards of makeup that I have) for the next three months. If I buy any skincare, makeup, body care, and hair care I have to give my sister $20 on each product spent. That would be a hefty fee to pay for each and every beauty product that crosses into my stash. I have everything that I possibly need AND backups too! Do I need to buy anymore? Not for the next few months that’s for sure.

There are so many beautiful Spring collections and new products coming out during those months but you know what? I think I’ll be okay I promised myself that I would purchase those things once the spending ban is lifted. I think this will be a great challenge for me and hopefully I will save money in the next three months (and pay off my school fees/textbook costs).

(I’ll turn these bills into more bills!)

So, has anyone else put themselves on a limit or a spending ban in the past or currently? Let me know in the comments.

New Years Resolutions 2014

9 Jan

Hello everyone! So I just wanted to pop on here and let you guys know what is on my New Years Resolutions list I make several lists throughout the year but having one like this is a great reference to look back to and I think it will be fun to see if I accomplish my goals for this year. I don’t like the idea of resolutions as it’s like I’m trying to resolve something that I wasn’t doing very well in the first place… but anyways, here we go!

– Be able to touch my toes – Weirdly I can do the splits but I can’t touch my toes… it’s been like that since I was able to remember stretching so I will strive to be able to touch my toes this year!

– Blog more – This one is one that I really want to work on and stick to a schedule of sorts for this. I have a lot of pending posts that need to be written and things like that so I hope to get through all the backlog that I have created for myself and blog a whole lot more.

– Reduce makeup collection – I have been going through and pulling out stuff that I don’t wear or don’t really like I got a pending blog post on the items I am tossing and will be reviewing the tossed items before that tossed post.

– Write/Illustrate a Children’s book – This has been a long time goal of mine and I haven’t gotten to sitting down and writing the story itself. Hopefully I will be able to complete it this year.

– Make a quilt – Another thing that I want to complete I have the materials needed I just need to unearth my sewing machine.

– Write lots of letters – There is something about a handwritten note that I love so I am sending my cousin who’s my pen pal a few letters and am looking for people to send letters to.

– Obvious resolutions of eating healthy, exercising more and staying on a budget who doesn’t have those on their resolutions list?

So that is my list and I hope that this year will be a great year to accomplish many things that I want to do.

Hello again!

2 Jan

Hello everyone! Long time no blog, TL:DR Windows 8 sucks and having no internet is a complete bummer. So I just wanted to pop on here to say that my internet has been fixed for now and I have a lot of posts planned.

Did you all enjoy your holidays? I did sort of… I worked lots and was doing a lot of holiday stuff… cuz that says it all.

Anyways, I’ll just leave you with a pic of one of my holiday looks and call it a night. Hope you all are doing well and here’s to another year of blogging!

Short Hiatus

16 Oct

Hello everyone! Sorry for not posting but things have picked up at school and I won’t be able to be posting anything for the next two-three weeks. There are things that I have to do and lots of things that need to be taken care of so please don’t think that I’m neglecting my blog. In the meantime I will leave you with a song that I’ve been playing nonstop on repeat.
