4th of July

Fireworks had light up the dark sky and celebrations were heard across the country as American celebrated Independence from the British as they had done over two hundred years ago. For I would like to be British and have those beautiful accents, but I do appreciate what the Founding Fathers have done for us to make this country very unique (and if you knew me, I like unique things).

So from yesterday it was crazy from me being lazy for most of the day and me driving for my first time in a empty parking lot (even stopping for a squirrel and driving on a curb) and me changing my outfit twice since apparently the one I have been wanting to wear for ages was ‘too fancy’ for a boat club.

Outfit Of The Day: Easter

Happy Easter y’all! I am very Catholic so of course I celebrate Easter, but if you don’t well I hope you like what I wore today! So this is my first Easter without my grandmother (RIP) so its kinda sad for me but lets get happy! As I live about a few minutes or so from Washington D.C., my mom had us planned to go see the cherry blossoms, but thanks to the snow last week they have delayed So we are staying home.

If you haven’t seen my posts before but I am like obsessed with MacBarbie07 videos so we tried out the peep cake pops which kinda failed because the cake wasn’t right so I’ll probably post a pic of those and we also dyed eggs!!! Which I haven’t done in like forever! So that was fun with my mom! So please enjoy and by today this account will be known as Lost In Neverland, hopefully and I’ll be starting an instagram for this! Enjoy!

Forever Alone Day

heart

Also known as Valentine’s Day when all the people who are in love have a snog fest and give each other gifts that are either engagement rings or pieces of gum that you found on the bottom of your bag. But for me and maybe some others are being found alone during the super romantic day. I used to hate this day, but for this year I don’t know why I’m so excited. Maybe I can ask my homeroom teacher if I could wear anything heart related other than my uniform?

Though I do wish that some guy, well any guy to proclaim their love for me on this day would be great, but that is not what I’m gonna talk about. So for those who believe are gonna grow old and live with a million cats just because for the past few years they haven’t had someone special and I found a few ways to spend this dreadful yet amazing day.

  1. You can cry about it by watching romance movies like the Notebook or my favorite, a Walk to Remember. Be like, I want a romance like that and eat your feelings away or you can cry with your best friends for a girls night for those who are also single.
  2. Singles Party! Invite all your single friends and talk about how gushy the couples are while wearing dresses with flowers in your hair and embracing the freedom of not being in a relationship.
  3. Listen to Girl Power music like Taylor Swift, Demi Lovato or Katy Perry. Maybe Taylor Swift if you want to feel bad, so  maybe not.
  4. Write, write, write on how everything is amazing without that special someone or how bad it is.
  5. Go see a movie like Warm Bodies for that really hot zombie! Just make sure to not bring a friend who gets easily scared of the badly made animations.
  6. Read a book, maybe something that involves no boys what so ever or you can cry over someone else’s romance like the Fault in Our Stars
  7. Or make Valentine’s handmade or store bought, with candy or with not (haha rhymed there). Give them to your friends, teachers, that special boy or even your cat. But you can eat it all.

Have fun this Valentine’s Day and remember its only 24 horrible hours to get through so don’t really do anything crazy unless its kissing that special boy!

Inspiration Board

I do not own this!
I do not own this!

Diclaimer: I do not own the picture! It was from Lauren Conrad’s Instagram and I was just too lazy to take a picture of mine!

If maybe Pinterest really isn’t your thing but you wanna keep all those pretty things together, what do you do? Start an inspiration board! Recently I have been scrolling mindlessly through Tumblr and Instagram and YouTube which is such a normal thing that I usually maybe every 5 seconds! So recently I have discovered MacBarbie07 on YouTube and I literally am OBSESSED with her! Not the creepy obsessed like I’m a stalker and… well I mean I like her fashion, videos and DIY.

I had watched her roomspiration video and I found this really cool room idea since I have recently moved this past summer and I have finally got my own room without living in a rented home so I can actually Elyseify my room! (And yes Elyseify is word, but sadly the Oxford people haven’t heard of it to put it in the dictionary). She had printed out pictures that she really liked and was going to stick them on her wall in the shape of a heart. If you want to do that, well that sounds really fun! I have also noticed that my friend Sam has an inspiration board on her notebook and maybe Lauren Conrad does too, she had it on Instagram.

If you don’t know what an Inspiration Board, its a place where you put pictures that you love and give you this happy and giddly feeling and you are inspire by it.

Since I have magazines since May 2012 and its February 2013, it was time to do a clean out. I have started what I called my “magazine” sometime last year but I never got up to date with it. So I had cut out the pictures and articles that I liked and then threw away the old magazines (even including the One Direction ones, tear).

To Elyseify my room, I have looked online and have saved pictures from Instagram and Tumblr to a folder which was originally for photoshoot ideas since for Christmas I have gotten a Canon (my new baby!) and was hoping to take very artsy pictures. I was thinking once I get ink in my printer I was going to print the pictures and stick them on my walls so my room doesn’t look like a boring white blob.

My tips to find pictures is like maybe Google, Tumblr, Pinterest, Instagram and maybe even your like pages on Facebook (or is that dead yet). Try to either put the pictures on your wall, a scrap book, a notebook, a bulletin board or even your locker and it will be very funky and cool and give you that giddly feeling!

So get creative with it!

Golden Globes 2013 Best Dressed

So it is award season already and I was confused that the Golden Globes were on last night because the People’s Choice Awards were on not even a week ago! Whatever. So since I stayed up last night when I should be studying for midterms, which were horrible!, I was looking at all the dresses and found some that stuck out the most to me.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

So thats what I think of the dresses last night! I call Jennifer Lawrence my long lost sister because I believe I look and act somewhat like her and I was so happy she got an award last night! EHH

I’m kinda disappointing about Taylor Swift’s outfit this year. Sad face 😦 and also I didn’t get to watch the beginning but I heard Amy and Tina were hilarious! As people say.

Disclaimer: I do not own any of the pictures.

Phone Cover Nails

phone

Says it all in the name, not really phone covers that are for nails but painting your nails to look exactly like your phone cover. Just like the picture above (which is not mine) where her nails match the gold on her case. I wish I could paint my nails like my phone case (which is the London Flag) and be like ‘look how cool my British nails are! They match my phone case!’

So I thought I would like to share this trend since I haven’t updated since last year (yup! I’m doing those jokes!). I have midterms coming up so I won’t be on for a while so happy 2013!!!

Set goals for yourself!

P.S.S I do not own the picture!

Recipe: Hot Cocoa Pudding Mugs

download

Disclaimer: Found this Jello ad on YouTube, I don’t own anything.

I have found this ad while on Youtube and I’m like why not, I have nothing else to do today so yeah. P.S. there is a reduced sugar version but I don’t think that will be as yummy as I want.

Materials:

  • 2-1/2 cups milk divided
  • 2 packets of KNOX Unflavored Jello (1/4 oz each)
  • 2 oz of melted BAKER’s Bittersweet Chocolate
  • 1 package of JELL-O Chocolate Instant Pudding (3.9 oz)
  • 12 miniature pretzel twists, broken to make little cup holders
  • 1-1/2 thawed COOL WHIP whipped toppings (yummy 🙂
  • 1/4 cup JET-PUFFED Vanilla Mallow Bits (even more yummy)

Directions:

  1. Add 1 and 1/2 cups of milk to dry Jello in small saucepan; then stir. Let sit for 3 minutes for it to become soft. Cook and stir on medium hear 3 minutes so it will dissolve. Remove it from the heat source and add the chocolate in while stirring it. Also cool it 5 more minutes.
  2. Beat pudding and milk in a medium bowl with whisk for 2 minutes. Add in JELLO and whisk it in. Separate in into shot cups that have already been spreaded with pan spray to come out nicely after 3 hours of refrigerate.
  3. Tap the little chocolate out of cups and placing them on a plate. Add a pretzel that has been broken to the side of each chocolate cup to similar to a mug. Add COOL WHIP to the top of each and add little marshmallows for the finishing touch.

I might not have explained it as well as they can so go to kraftbrands and hopefully you’ll find other yummy recipes! Hope your Christmas was fun!
