OOTD: Simple and Clean

So because I was being exceptionally picky and that today may have just been an unlucky day, it seems like this OOTD post will only have one picture): .....Let me explainlol

Now, after taking the pictures I went through them like I usually do to delete any shots I feel are just too......awkward. Well, I ended up deleting a whole bunch because they were indeed of the awkward nature. But let's face it, I'm no model and the poses I choose sometimes are just god awful. Anyways, I ended up with like a handful to work with but then for some reason, I was only able to upload one because this "not enough memory" window kept popping up-.-

Sighs, at least this was one of the least awkward ones^_^ ahah Got to stay positive!!It was sunny today so the shots came out pretty good. Today was just one of those simple and comfortable days so here I am in a t-shirt and shorts.....chic huhlol By the way, did you like my Kingdom Hearts reference??

Here is where I usually tell you where my clothes are from
but honestly it's just a white v-neck and pair of shorts I've had for a whilelol
The shoes are the nude versions of the ones from my last post^_^

I usually don't wear white. Don't get me wrong, I like white as a color but I don't wear it often, maybe it's because I never thought it looked flattering on me. I remember thinking once that since my face gets really red when I laugh, a white t-shirt would just make it more noticeable and I'll end up looking like those cherry lollipops. Yupp...I still think that ahah

How's everyone's summer going??School is going to be starting soon again so I'm trying to get as much done as possible before my life becomes a dark pool of books and lecturesO_O

Hmm, let's see. I'm still actively working out everyday. I think I see some improvement but I'm hoping that there will be more progress by the time school starts and I won't have as much time to work out. I've definitely been eating a lot better. I've cut out sweets, which was incredibly hard for me since candy and sweet bakery buns were pretty much my best friends, but it was probably for the best (✖╭╮✖). Since I've been eating healthier, I've been cooking more of my own food since it's better to know every ingredient that goes into your food (no more of those processed foods for this girl). Not sure how I would describe my cooking but the food's edible and that is all I will say^_-lol

Do you guys cook a lot of your own food??What do you usually make??Would love to hear any recommendations of your favorite dishes!!Hopefully I won't butcher it, but I can't make promises(:

Thank you so much for reading you guys!!
I hope you liked that one lonely picture ahah
I'll talk to you guys again soon^_^

OOTD: Summer in the Shade

It's Summer!!Well actually it's been summer for a while but it's really been feeling like summer lately with the scorching sun and overly excited mosquitos (O_O).

Hi everyone!!I am so happy to say that I am finally back with a new OOTD for you guys(: These last few months have been exhausting with school and work but I can't exactly say I haven't been lazy either ahah

Here are the pictures I took earlier today. I took them outside my house because I didn't feel like going anywhere so sorry for the lack of scenery!!I will definitely work on that for the next post^_^

Top: Charlotte Russe
Skirt: H&M
Shoes: Charlotte Russe
Jewelry: They were a gift

The outfit is nothing really special but I did really like the wedges I wore. I actually liked them so much that I bought another pair but in nude. I will probably wear them in a another OOTD sometime soon(:

So lately I've been really getting into exercising and just really working on my overall health. I wouldn't say that I'm at a bad weight or physique but my personal goal is be more fit and toned, mostly in my legs. I've only just started so there's not much to report. I may post up pictures of my progress if I feel like there's a difference, which I really hope will be the case.

How about you guys??Do you have any fitness goals this summer??If not, you can tell me about how your summer is going, your plans, anything!!Please leave your answers in the comments, I would love to hear about them^_^ I really miss chatting with you guys!!

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you enjoyed the pictures^_^

OOTD: Roses Are Red

So I've just now officially started my spring break. Whoohooo!!!...well, actually so far my only plans are to jump on my bed and hibernate for the next 7 days (-, – )…zzzZZZ. I've just lost so much sleep in the past few weeks and I can tell that my face is suffering dearly from it(>_<)...sighs..I wish my face didn't know about my sleep cyclelol

Well, anyways, it's about time for a new OOTD(: It's pretty short so for those with short attention spans like me, this post if for you^_- ahah But yea, these 3 were the only ones I could really work with considering that I was battling with the wind the whole time. Seriously, I'm beginning to think that the weather is plotting against me (╥_╥).

Floral Overall Dress: Papaya
Long Sleeve Top: H&M
Necklace: H&M

I'm sitting alone because no one else wants to eat in 35 degree weatherlol

Hmm, so let's see what's happened since my last post. I've been working a lot so that's probably contributing to my face troubles lately. I've also somehow got talked into working during my spring break as well, mainly because I'm weak and incapable of saying "no" to people. 

Other than that, I'm really hoping that I can work out and run more while I have time next week. It's kind of a personal goal so I'm pretty determined...unless my laziness gets the best of melol

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you enjoyed the pictures^_^
I'll talk to you guys again soon!!

OOTD: Pearly Corals

Hey everyone(: I hope you guys are all doing well!!Work and school has been keeping me pretty busy. Also, I've been trying to work out more and yes, it hurts ahah I mean, you kind of get used to it, but I don't know, I don't think I've been walking right ever since I started running again(O_o)lol

Now without further ado, here are the OOTD pictures from this week(:

Top: Papaya
Bottom: Love Culture
Flats: H&M
Accessories: I think my mom gave them to me a long time agolol

My two favorite colors!!ahah
I just think that coral and black look really nice together.
Also, I sat down to make myself look less short but I don't know if it worked. 
What do you think???lol

My boyfriend really likes this picture and I kinda fancy it myself (~ ̄▽ ̄)~

Now, from looking at these pictures, I bet you didn't know that it was only 30 degrees fahrenheit did ya....(−_−;) .......sighs, the things I do for this blog ahah It really was freezing outside. You could see your breath and everything. You can say that I was crazy and I would agree but I really wanted to post up a new OOTD since I haven't posted one in a while and my winter closet consists of mostly hoodies and jackets so that wasn't really something to take pictures of.

Here's what I looked like right after my boyfriend took the pictures..

My smile's hiding underneath my jacketlolIt was also one of my best friends' birthday so we went to celebrate at Tin Lizzy's after class. Tin Lizzy is like a bar/restaurant that serves Mexican style dishes like tacos, queso, quesadilla, skillets, and more. They are all super delicious so if you ever find yourself near a Tin Lizzy's one day, I recommend that you check it out^_^

We had lots of fun so I thought I'd share some of my favorite pictures with you(:

Vy and our friend Ram

Me and my boyfriend James

Happy 21st Birthday Vy(:

The nachos were soooo good!!!>_<

Sighs, I have to wake up early for work tomorrow): Sometimes I really feel like there needs to be 3 extra days in the week so I could just spend them sleeping. I finally finished my midterms so at least I got those out of the way.

So what have you guys been up to??Did you guys do anything fun??Are you planning on going somewhere soon??I would love to hear about it in the comments^_^

Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed the pictures(:
I'll see you guys soon!!

Review: Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick and Snow Day

 So here's my review post on a recent purchase of mine(: For the last year or so, I've kind of steered away from any lip products, whether it be lipstick or lip gloss. But on a recent trip to Sephora, I decided to give Smashbox's Be Legendary lipstick a shot. I guess it was kind of an impulse buy because I just really thought the color was pretty and I didn't put much research into it ahah

Well here are some of the pictures I took of the lipstick^_^

 The color I got was "Posy Pink"
And I believe it is one of the creamy shades from the line.

Really sorry I forgot to take a "before" picture but I want to get
this post up as soon as I can since I haven't posted anything in a while.
I'll make sure I come back and edit this post when I can(:

When I first tried it on, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that it wasn't drying at all, which was the problem I had with most lipsticks. A lot of them would just dry up on me in a couple of hours, making me re-apply constantly throughout the day. However, this lipstick was moisturizing and I was very pleased with the color. The one I purchased was one of the cream shades from the line so I think it will be more moisturizing than the matte shades.

There's no plastic/rubber smell to it like some lipsticks have. It smells good but I really don't know how to describe what it does smell like since my nose doesn't really work half the timelol
The price of the lipstick was $20 so a bit pricey compared to drugstore brands. But honestly, I think this purchase was worth it because I've been wearing this lipstick around a lot lately and it really helps to leave my lips smooth and moisturized.

Pros: Nice creamy texture, pigmented, moisturizing, line has a variety of color

Cons: A bit pricey

My overall rating of the product? 5/5

I really love this lipstick and will be back to buy another shade from the collection^_^

What are your thoughts on this lipstick? Have you tried it before? Please let me know in your comments below. I would love to hear them!!


Snow Day

I really haven't seen snow in a long time so it was nice to see white
outside my window this morning(:

The view from outside my house^_^...let's not be creepy and find out where I live ok??

So how's the weather been for everyone??I'm not sure how it's been anywhere else in the world but in the U.S., I hear it's been pretty bad with some areas around -30 degrees or so(O_O). Still, I hope everyone is fine and well(:

I live in Georgia so the weather doesn't usually get as bad as it is up North but still, yesterday we went through this winter storm and the conditions have been so bad): Watching the news, I see so many cars stranded, and some for more than 15 hours!!I actually had some close friends who got stuck in traffic during the storm so they couldn't make it home for the night. My boyfriend even had to walk home since his car wouldn't make it up an icy hill. I was very fortunately to have made it home last night. My university canceled classes at 1 o'clock, which was when the storm started getting bad, but the problem was that everyone was leaving at that time, including businesses around the metropolitan area.

It took me about 6 hours to get home due to the traffic. Most of the storm happened yesterday but today they are still thousands of people who are stranded or have abandoned their cars on the highway, seeking for shelter from the icy roads.

Now, the temperature was only about 25 degrees so it doesn't really hold up much to what others are experiencing in places that are below zero, but really, this storm was a shock to many because Georgia just doesn't experience this kind of weather often and also, due to some miscalculations, the traffic that resulted from the storm was intensified due to schools and government offices not being closes prior to the storm, leading up to around 1,200 car accidents, many resulting in injuries.

I sincerely hope many will be able to return to their homes and families as soon as possible. You will be in my prayers.

How is the weather for you guys??Are you getting snow too??Also, if you have any funny weather-related stories, please share!!(: 

Thank you so much for reading and I will see you again soon(:
