My New Year's Resolutions for 2012

Happy Last Day of 2011! (a.k.a new years eve!) 
Today I wanted to to my new year's resolutions and hopefully I will be able to stick to them!

1. Workout 3 times a week: I need to start working out on a regular basis! I have just been randomly doing workouts but starting tomorrow I am going to workout every Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday. I might start up a workout series again :) 
2. Blog every other day: I am going to try my best to blog every other day! 
3. Get my G1: I hope I can get it this week, but I have been putting it off for a long time and I want to have it done and maybe have my G2 by the end of the year!
4. Don't procrastinate: I tend to procrastinate a lot! With school work (especially studying), cleaning my room, ect. 
5. To do the splits: I have been wanting to do the splits for such a long time! I am going the stretch everyday and hopefully I can by the end of the year!
6. No regrets: I don't want to think in the past anymore, and not worry about it. You only live your life once! :)
7. Go to a concert: This is something I want to do this year rather than a resolution. It is crazy how I have never been to a concert! I have been to small ones like Lights and some older bands but I have never been to big concert with thousands of people. The main person I want to see in concert is Justin Bieber, I really hope he has one near me this year!! :D 

 Those are my new year's resolutions! I hope you have a great new year's eve and talk to you next year ;)

What are you're new year's resolutions? 

Look What I Got In The Mail! :D

Hey Everyone! 
So, a few weeks ago I entered HerLateNightCravings's tokidoki giveaway! I ended up winning and I was super excited/shocked that I actually won something! Today it came in the mail and it felt like Christmas all over again! Haha :) So here is what I got:

And a closer look at the eye shadows... 

I am just going to go through each thing staring with the little eye shadow pallets, then the larger eye shadow pallet then the rollerballs :) 

Lion Pappa
This is my favourite out of the three quads. It is the tan coloured one on the left. The characters on it are so cute! For eye shadows you get a light brown, medium brown, dark brown and a gold. These colours are so pretty for an everyday look! And the blush is a peach colour. Overall I think I am going to be using this pallet A LOT! :) 
24 Karat 
This is the pallet in the middle (it is black). It also has aborable characters (like a little unicorn) and the colours in this are gorgeous! There is a white, blue, black, and silver. They are all really shimmery. The blush is really cute too it is a pink colour. 
This is a really fun palette! It is the purple one farthest to the right. The packaging is just like Vegas, cards, dice, slot machine, really fun! :) The eye shadows inside are white, silver (but not as intense as the 24 Karat palette), dark purple and a light purple. The blush is a light pink colour. I really like these eye shadows, they are so pretty! <3
24 Karat Skate Deck Palette
This palette is so cool! I love how it looks like a skate board! They have a bunch of the characters on the front and it comes with a cute little key chain! How adorable? I am going to quickly go through the colours: 
Unicorno - White
Stella - Silver
Ametista - Light purple
Cuore - A very light pink, almost white
Duna - Light brown
Sabbia - Tan
Goccia - A dark blue (really pretty!)
Adios Star - Black
Tempesta: Dark purple
Granata: Green (a lot like a military green)
Camo: Dark brown 
24 Karat: Gold
All of  these shadows are highly pigmented and so pretty! I am really excited to start creating looks with all of them!! :D 
Rollerball Set
This is a perfume set with 6 different scents. They are small so you can take them anywhere you want to go and they have a different character on each one which is so cute! 

I just want to say thank-you to herlatenightcravings! I am grateful for everything I got and I love it all and I can't wait to start using them!! <333 So thanks again!! And if you don't follow their blog make sure you go check it out! It is really amazing :D 
That's all for today! I hope you have a great morning/afternoon/evening and I will talk to you later! :) 

P.S if your interested in tokidoki they sell it at Sephora :) and sorry the pictures aren't the best quality, I had to use my phone!

My Top Lip Products of 2011

2011 is is coming to a close, so I thought it would be fun to do my top beauty products of 2011 starting with lips!

MAC Lustre Marquise D': I talk about this lipstick a lot in my blog posts. It is from the wonder woman collection so sadly it might not be available anymore. It is a nude pink colour and I find that is a great for everyday wear. 
Revlon Lip Butters: I like all of the lip butters in general. I have berry smoothie but I really want to go and buy more! They are really creamy and hydrating and highly pigmented. I defiantly recommend checking them out if you haven't already! 
Maybelline Coloursensational: I am not sure that this is the name but it came out for a limited time only in the summer and it is a transparent lipstick. They basically tint your lips and it looks like you just ate a Popsicle. The colour I got is pink lollipop and it smells like candy :) YUM
MAC Sheen Supreme: The colour I got in this is Quite The Thing. I just got this for Christmas so I have only worn it a few times but I am in love with the colour! It is a fuschia and has a bit more purple than pink to it. It looks really dark in the tube but goes on a lot lighter. I am not one to venture out and get bight lipsticks (like red or purple) but I am starting to and I really like this one! 

Lip Gloss 
MAC Dazzleglass: The colour I have in this is baby sparks. This is my all time favourite gloss. It is pink and very glittery, I find that it looks really pretty! I also really like the applicator and how it is a brush instead of a wand. 
Rimmel London Vinyl Gloss: This is a lot like the dazzleglass. My favourite colour is lovebug. To be honest at the store when I saw it I got it because I thought the name was adorable! The colour turned out to be good, in the tube it is a light pink but on it is clear. 
Loreal Paris le Gloss: This also came out in the summer and it has really cute packaging. It was actually in my September favourites. The colour I have is Golden Splash and it is a pink-orange colour. It also smells like cupcakes <333
Lip Balms: I got obsessed with lip balms over the summer, all of them. Lip smacker, EOS, Blistex, ect. So, I would say that all of them are my favourites!  One in particular though is Maybelline's Baby Lips. I got the clear kind but omg! It smells so good and it makes my lips really soft! If you have chapped lips I definitely recommend it! :) 

Those are my top lip products of 2011! I am really excited to see what 2012 has to offer! 

What was your favourite lip product of 2011?

Let's Talk: Feather Extensions!

I thought a good topic to cover would be feather extensions. They have been really popular since the summer and still are. I see tons of people at my school with them, also celebrities (like Aria from Pretty Little Liars and Ke$ha). I have had mine for four months and I am going to get them switched sometime this break. I think I can answer some questions you might have about them so I will divide this into topics. My personal experience with them, questions (I got a few from yahoo answers), and just general thoughts :) 
Personal Experience 
I got mine back in the beginning of Semptember and I have to say I like them a lot. You can go swimming with them, wash your hair, curl/straighten them, get your hair cut, basically anything you can do with your hair. I have medium brown hair and the feather colours I choose were white and black, yellow-orange and black, and just a pure black also they are thin not thick (I don't really like the thick ones). I also put them behind my ear. I didn't know what they would look like at first so I wanted to keep it safe, no crazy colours (like pink or blue). After I got them put in I defiantly regretted not getting a fun colour, but I will this time! I think I am going to get a purple. They take less than 5 minutes to put in (I think they do them at any hair salon) and it is just a clamp so you can get them removed whenever you want :)
I got these questions from yahoo answers, so let's answer them!  :) 
How much are feather extensions?
I got mine for $10 a feather and I live in Canada, so I think they should generally be around that price. 
How long do feather extensions stay in? 
They can stay in for as long as you want. Again, I have had mine for about 4 months. I am just replacing them because your hair obviously grows and right now they are the same length as my hair and I don't want them being longer. I actually might see in keeping a couple of mine and adding one more :) So they last for a long time. 
How can you shower with feather extensions so they don't get ruined, and how do you care for them? 
You basically forget they are there. I wash and care for mine the same as I care for my hair, I don't do anything special. The one thing you might want to watch out for it brushing them. Sometimes (where the clamp is) the brush will catch it and pull. That had only happened to me a few times but still something you don't want happening. If they do get ruined I would go to the salon and get them fixed/re-done! 
Are they real feathers?
You can get feather extensions that are from real feathers. Personally, I don't know if I would want to get real feathers in my hair and what they do to the birds is sad :( I got synthetic feather extensions and that means that they are fake feathers.  

Anyways, I hope this was helpful to some of you and I will talk to you later!! <3

Blogmas Day 11: It's Christmas Eve! :)

Are you guys excited for tomorrow? 
Christmas Eve is my favourite day of the year (I like it even more than Christmas Day itself!). 
Today I actually finished up some Christmas shopping! Yeah, I am bad for leaving it so last minute, hahaa. The mall wasn't even busy. I was so surprised! Also, I got my phone fixed! They had to replace the trackball, I am so happy! I can call people again! Yayyy!
Tonight has been pretty laid back. Just hanging with my family :) 
I just got to open my Christmas pajamas (I always get to open new pajamas on Christmas eve) and they are so cute and cuddly. They are plaid bottoms (purple and navy) and a navy tank top that has all these cute winter sayings :)
I have been also watching Christmas specials, right now I am watching Rudolph :) And I am tracking Santa! Haha, so you have probably heard of it but its called Norad Santa Tracker ( and you can see what country Santa is in and where he has been. Pretty cool :)
So, I should probably go now, but I hope you guys have a great Christmas Eve and talk to you tomorrow!! 
P.S Here is a Christmas Eve song! :)

Blogmas Day 10: Ins & Outs of December

Merry Christmas Eve's Eve! :)
Today I am going to go through my ins & outs of December! LEGGO :D 

  • Christmas: I love Christmas so much! It is my all time favourite holiday <3 I have been loving the baking, eating the baked goods, the shows, movies, shopping, and just everyone being merry. 
  • Skating: Yesterday I got to go skating for the first time this year! I love skating it is so much fun :) I still have to buy some new skates because the ones I have now are getting old (if your wondering I use hockey skates but I thinking of switching to figure skates). I am probably an average skater, but I still can't stop, haha! :) One year I went speed skating and it was amazing! If you ever get the chance, try it! I am hoping to go again this year.
  • Twitter & Tumblr: Recently I have been addicted to tumblr and twitter. On my twitter I just post whats happening and quotes and tumblr is just random pictures. Anyway, if you want to follow me here are the links: twitter and my tumblr. Oh, and I will follow back! Just ask :) 
  • School: School has been so crazy this month. I had so much work to do! I am sorta sad that I didn't get to do all of my blogmas ideas, but I guess I can do them next year! I am also really tired, I am SO happy that today was my last day! No more school for 2 weeks!!! :D 
  • My Crapberry: That is what I now call my blackberry (I got the word from Ingrid, but I think it suits my phone perfectly!). It has been so annoying recently! I have an older version so it has the trackball and it is suck and won't scroll down. That means I can't text/call anyone unless they text me first. Also I have this alarm on my phone to wake me up in the morning and because my phone won't scroll down it is going to go off at 7am everyday this break! I have tried a million things to fix it (like the paper trick) do you guys have any ideas? Also, it won't go on standby, so annoying. Sorry, this was a bit of a rant, haha. I am going to see if I can get it fixed after Christmas! 
  • No Snow: I can't believe it is suppose to be a green Christmas. The weather has been so strange! It felt like spring a few days ago and now it is freezing outside! Hopefully it snows before Christmas! *fingers crossed*
Those are my ins & outs! What are yours? :)

Blogmas Day 9: My Newest Obsession

Hey Everyone! 
Today I just wanted to do a quick post on my newest obsession, Tiny Tower. If you watch Ingrid's vlogmas videos then you probably know what I am talking about. Tiny Tower is this free app for iPhones and iPod touches (they might also have it for other smartphones as well).  
What you do is make this tower and Bitzens live there (they are humans but in the Tiny Tower world). So you make different floors that are either: food, service, recreation, retail, creative and residential. I like to put my residential floor for every two food, retail, ect. This is because your bitzens will work for you and the only way they will work is if they have a place to live :) You can also earn bux for doing little jobs like finding someone in your tower or giving an elevator ride. It is good to save your bux to buy a faster elevator. If you hit menu you are brought to a bunch of icons, my favourite one is bitbook! It is like a little facebook for them, so cute! Also the game keeps going when your away so you can always be playing it. 
My tower has 9 floors right now but I almost have enough money to build a tenth. My floors are: apartment, sub shop (but I named mine subway), photo studio, apartment, arcade, music store, apartment, and day spa :) 
Anyways, it is a really cute and addicting game I thought it would share with you! Do any of you play it? 

Also, I just wanted to say sorry for the lack of post recently, I am been really busy with school (I have so many summatives, ah!). I am just taking a break form homework now so that's why this post is sorta short. Hopefully I get finished everything tonight and I can do a fun post tomorrow :) 
So, I will talk to you tomorrow! :D And yes, I totally used instagram on the tiny tower picture :P 

**Only 4 days until Christmas!**

Blogmas Day 8: Dashing Through The Snow...

Hey Everyone! 
Today I wanted to talk about my favourite activities to do in the winter time! Obviously these deer like to build snowmen, haha :) 

My top thing is sledding/skiing. I love sledding. It is the funnest thing ever! When I was like 10 or something my friends and I went to a hill and built ramps on the bottom so you would 'fly'. We then had people under the ramp and you would go over them. So much fun! I think I have a video of it on YouTube actually...Also, I have always wanted to go to Quebec for their winter carnival, it looks amazing! They have this snow slide (I am not sure if there is ice on it), but you get in a tube thing and go down. Pretty cool, right?
My other top activity is skiing. I have only been downhill once and it was a lot of fun, hopefully I can go this year! :) I sometimes go cross country skiing, but my skis are like 100 years old..I should probably update them :P 

Skating! Of course skating has to be one of my favourite winter actives! I love it (even though I can't stop, haha). It is fun to go with a group of friends and get hot chocolate and skate around the rink :) 

My last favourite activity is just playing in the snow. I am a total kid, I know. But it is sooo much fun to be outside and build a snowman, or make snow angles. I also like to play with my dog in the snow, he is so funny! He makes little tunnels and then pops up and is covered in snow and you can only see his eyes, lol :) 

Those are some of my favourite winter activites :) Andddd only 9 more days until Christmas!! Ahhh :D Anyways, talk to you later! 

What are your favourite winter activity? :)

Blogmas Day 7: Christmas Cookies!

Yes, today I am doing a post on Chirstmas Cookies! This is mostly because I am baking right now and I thought it would be fun to share and maybe inspire you to do some baking too! :) In this blog post I will go over sugar cookies and gingerbread cookies. I bought cookie dough already made, so I won't go through the baking and mixing steps in detail but I will put a link to a recipe if your interested in see that :) 
Sugar Cookies
What You Are Going To Need:
- Cookie Dough 
- Cookie Cutters
- Icing 
- Food Colouring 
- Sprinkles
How to Make it:
Get the cookie dough and put flour on it and roll it out. Then get some cookie cutters (it can be stars or anything) and cut the dough. Bake as directed on the package.
When it is baking you can make some icing! For the icing you will need 1 cup icing sugar and 1 -2 tbsp of milk. The whip until it looks like icing (haha). Or you can also buy white icing if you don't want to make it. 
You can separate the icing into little bowls and make each one a different colour. Just put in a few drops of food colouring. I made my icing red, green, and white. 
Spread the icing on the cookie after it has baked and cooled. Then add sprinkles! I have a bunch of Christmas sprinkles, there are little trees and red and green sprinkles! Cute, eh? :) 
Here is a recipe if you are interested in making our cookies homemade:
Gingerbread Cookies
Run, Run, as fast as you can! You can't catch me I'm the gingerbread man!
Hopefully, you don't have any run away gingerbread men! Haha :) 
Here is what your going to need to make it:
- cookie dough
- cookie cutters
- icing (and a baggie)
- candy (like jubjub candies) 
How to make it:
Get the cookie and roll it out flat (don't forget the flour!). Use the cookie cutter and cut the cookie dough into little men. Bake as directed on the package. 
You can make the icing just like you did in the sugar cookie one. Once you have your icing separate it into Ziploc sandwich bags. You can add food colouring to how many baggies you have. Push the icing to a corner of the baggie and then cut a little hole. This will help you design the cookies. Make a little hole at first and then go bigger if you need too. 
Once the cookies are done baking and cooled its time to put the icing on!
I like to make an outline around the gingerbread man and then add a smile. Then I make two little dots of icing like buttons and put the jubjub's on it. YUM!
Here is a recipe if you are wanting to make them homemade:

These also make really cute presents! It is something I am giving to my friends. Just get a cute tin from Wal-Mart or Zellers (Target if you live in america) and put in the cookies! :) 
Hope you enjoyed this blog post and I will talk to you later!

Blogmas Day 5: Top 10 Holiday Shows/Movies

My favourite way to get into the Christmas spirit is by watching Christmas specials! Here is my top 10 favourite shows and movies :) 

1. Rudolph The Red-Nose Reindeer. My all time favourite show is Rudolph, not the newer versions but the one from the 1960s (I think...). It is so cute and I love everything about it! "Let's be independent together!" my all time favourite line, ahah!! :) 

2. Elf. This is the most FUNNIEST movie everrrr. If you have never seen it, go watch it now! It is the best Christmas movie you will ever see. 

3. The Grinch. This is a pretty classic show. I am not as much of a fan of the new movie with Jim Carry (I still like it though). My favourite part is when he does that evil smile, sorta a weird part to like but it always makes me laugh, he looks too funny! :)

4. Arthur Christmas. This is a new movie, it is still only in theaters. Arthur Christmas is the most cutest movie ever! It is really funny, and at one point I wanted to cry (I always cry at cartoons!) and it had a great story line. I don't want to give too much away, but it is a really good movie. Plus, Justin Bieber is in the begininggg <3

5. The Santa Clause (all three). This is another great Christmas movie! It is funny and always makes me happy, especially Comet! I have seen the reindeer from the movie, it was so exciting! LOL :) 

6. Christmas with the Kranks. I really like this movie. It is about this family that wants to skip Christmas and everyone is giving them a hard time about it. It is really funny and always gets me into the Christmas spirit!

7. Frosty the Snowman. This is a really adorable show. I like the older cartoon rather than the newer ones, and I don't really like Frosty Returns. 

8. Home Alone. I love Home Alone! It is so funny! I also like Home Alone 2 but I have never seen the ending! I should watch it at some point, haha. 

9. The Polar Express. This movie always makes me believe in Santa. It is a really good movie and the video game for it is also really good! I sorta want to play it now...

10. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. This is also a funny movie (I really like comedies if you couldn't tell). I love when the squirrel is in the Christmas tree! Soooo funnnnyyy :) 

So, that is my top 10 holiday shows/movies! It isn't in order, more like what ones I could remember :P But I defiantly recommend them if your looking to watch some movies! 

What's your favourite Holiday Movie/Show? 

Oh, and is anyone watching the Top Model Finale tonight?! I am so excitedddd, I really hope Alison wins!! Eeeeeee :)

Blogmas Day 4: Homemade Ornaments

Hey Everyone!
Sorry for not doing blogmas yesterday, I can't believe that I missed a day. I was doing homework and I didn't have anytime to write. So now I am a day behind...
On a brighter note, today I wanted to give you some homemade ornament ideas :) You can hang them on your tree, or give them as gifts.
Glass Ball Ornament
So, this ornament is going to look like the one above. 
You will need:
- a glass ornament (I got mine from Michaels craft store)
- anything you want to put inside it, you can use paint or paper, glitter or music notes
How to make it:
So take of the top of the ornament, that will be the metal part. They should just be able to come off. 
If you want it to look like the picture above just get music sheets and glitter paper, whatever you might have into strips. Then just put in into the ornament. 
You can also put paint in them and swirl it to give it a unique effect. Or, you can just paint the outside.
I just had a great idea! You could make little paper swans and put it into the ornament! How cute is that?! Adorable <3 
Paper Ball Ornament 
I found this picture on and wanted to make one myself! So, I searched it on google and just finished making my own :) Here is how to make it!
What you are going to need: 
- paper
- scissors
- stapler
- glue
How to make it:
Trace out nine circles. It can be an size you want and the paper can be whatever you want :)
Fold each circle in half and place them in a stack. Staple them at the top, middle and bottom fold (make sure that they are unfolded when you staple it).
One by one glue them together alternating from top and bottom. 
And that's all, pretty cute, eh? :) 

Those are two idea's for homemade ornaments :) I think that they are pretty easy and a great project to do when your bored. Hopefully you found this helpful and will try some of these out! Anyway, I will talk to you tomorrow!

Blogmas Day 3: Dear Santa...

Hey Everyone! 
Today I wanted to share my Christmas wishlist! It may give you ideas on what to give someone for a present, or what you might want for Christmas! Overall, it is always fun to write out a wishlist! 
My List :) 
Pajama bottoms and slippers. I love coming home and putting on pajama pants and slippers, it is always so warm and cozy! 
From MAC I want lipstick in Quite a Thing, eye shadow in All That glitters and Quarry. I love the lipstick Quite a Thing, it is a fuchsia colour and so gorgeous! I don't own anything like it, and for the eye shadows I just have been wanting them for a while. 
For books I want Bobbie Browns Makeup Manual and Twisted (the newest Pretty Little Liar novel).
I also want a camera, as you know mine is broken so I could really use a new one!
In video games I want Mario Galaxy 2. I love Mario games! I have already beat the first one and I am really excited to try out the next one. 
I also really really want an iPad, but I really don't think that is going to happen, but you never know! :) 

So, that is my Christmas list! I also want some random stuff like nail polishes and clothes. But those are the main things :)

What is on your Christmas List?

Blogmas Day 2: Peppermint Hot Chocolate

Hey Everyone!
So, today for blogmas I want to do a recipe on peppermint hot chocolate! I have become obsessed with peppermint hot chocolate from Starbucks (I have yet to try the white peppermint mocha, maybe I will this weekend!). So, I wanted to make my own today, here is how you make it!
What you are gonna need:
- peppermint candy canes
- hot chocolate mix
- milk (or water)
- whip cream 
- a cute Christmas mug! 
How to make it:
- put the milk or water in your mug and put it in the microwave for 2 minutes
- while it is in the microwave take your candy cane and a large spoon and hit it until it is crushed 
- get your mug from the microwave and put the crushed candy cane in it and 2 spoon fulls of hot chocolate mix (how much you use is really up to you, I prefer 1 candy cane and 3 spoons of coco)
- stir until all of the candy cane pieces have melted 
- add whip cream and its ready to enjoy! 
Make it a present!
You can always turn this into a present. Either get a fun holiday mug and fill it with the ingredients (obviously only the peppermint and hot coco mix) or get a jar and decorate it! :)   

That is my peppermint hot chocolate recipe, let me know what you think in the comments! Also check out my other blog post on how to make hot chocolate! I will talk to you guys tomorrow! 

What is your favourite holiday drink?

Where do you usually spend your holiday? 
My Aunt's house. It is out in the country, it is always nice to get out of the city :) 
Play or sing your favourite Christmas song!
I can't because I am typing, haha. But my favourite Christmas song is All I Want For Christmas Is You. 
Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?
Yeah, I always get to open new pajamas. Not very exciting, but very cozy! 
Can you name all of Santa's reindeer? 
Uhhh, of course! Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen, and Rudolph! 
What holiday tradition are you looking forward to most this year? 
I don't really have any traditions..But I am just excited to spend time with my family :) 
Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
It is fake, but my Aunt's is real and I am usually there for Christmas anyway. 
Hands down, what's your all-time favourite holiday food and sweet treat?
I like the entire turkey dinner! And for sweat treats truffles! (I will have a recipe for them & present idea up later!) 
Be honest: Do you like giving or receiving gifts better?
I like giving. Every time I get someone I present I am so excited for them to open it! Haha :)
Show us your tackiest Christmas Attire (example, ugly sweater)
I actually don't have one, no lie. I sorta want one though :) 
What would be the dream place to visit for this holiday season?
I would like to go somewhere I could ski :) I feel like if I went to Bora Bora or something it wouldn't feel like Christmas! 
Does your family have a special holiday recipe you like to help make?
Truffles & Cookies :) 
Are you a pro-present wrapper, or do you fail miserably?
Pro-present wrapper, awww yeahhhh :)
Most memorable holiday moment?
When I was a kid I really wanted this toy dog and one year I found it under the tree and it made me really happy :) I still have it! 
What made you realize the truth about Santa?
My friends told me.
Do you make New Years Revolutions? Do you stick to them?
Nope, I don't really bother making them because I know I won't stick to them.
What makes the holidays special for you?
Just everyone being happy. I also like to help out with the community during the holiday. Also the snow, hanging out with friends, Christmas shopping, decorating, baking, skating, ect. :) 

That was my holly jolly tag! I tag you guys to do this too and I will talk to you tomorrow! <3
