Fireworks 2015 ♡

This is very late because the fireworks were in June. But I remembered that last year I made a post about them, and how can you not? Fireworks are awesome, they’re definitely worth posting about. This year, it was raining the day of and many thought they’d have to postpone it. Luckily, the rain stopped just hours before, but they had to make it at nine instead of ten. Therefore it was still pretty light outside which took away the dramatic effect, but the fireworks were still awesome nonetheless. Yes, they still had cool shapes this year, like smiley faces and hearts. And yes, the ending was actually better than the other years. It sounded like a million gunshots going off at once for at least a minute, it was pretty intense. The people made me think of myself as a young child, covering my ears to protect them from the loud noise. Hey, it was pretty loud.

Then a couple of days later, we went back downtown to go to the carnival. I actually forced myself to go on a big ride (after hours of debating). It was very fun. Fun rides, good company, nice scenery, and tasty food (and the best cherry lemonade you’ll ever have).

Summer is really fun so far! My boyfriend and I are extremely excited to go to Florida in August. Maybe some of you know why. 😉

I hope you’re all having a great summer so far! Stay safe and have fun! xx

I Graduated—Class of 2015

grad

Even just reading this blog’s title makes me feel happy inside. This is the moment I’ve been counting down the days until (literally) ever since I was fifteen with my friends. Seriously. We were like twenty year olds being forced into high school. We didn’t belong. We felt so different, felt more mature than everyone else, like we were all just ready to move on to the next chapter of our lives. Well, we made it, ladies!

My first year of high school, I absolutely loved it. Like, abnormally loved it. Everyone thought I was so weird. So did I, considering I hated school. But grade nine was different. Then hits grade ten, and my personality did like a total shift within two weeks and suddenly, bam, new person, more mature, and just ready to leave. I hated it so much that half the day I was schooled from home (online courses) and I loved that. It made me feel like I was in college, being able to leave during the day and making my own hours. It rocked. That was in grade eleven. Come grade twelve, I felt like I already left high school years ago. I think if I was to suffer with all those teens during school for six hours a day, I would’ve probably formed a flash mob at the graduation from being so happy. But it was just kinda like, “Meh. Mentally I was out of high school when I was fifteen, physically for half days when I was sixteen and seventeen, and now fully out. Yay.” Don’t get me wrong, I am so happy. NO MORE HIGH SCHOOL. FOREVER. It feels like just yesterday I went up to my friend Jimela (by the way, you never let did “Meh meh meh Neptune” like promised Jimela!) and we would just pretty much cry to each other, “Only eight hundred and thirty two days to go!” It’s kinda almost surreal that it’s actually done. I’m very happy writing this right now.

Another plus side is, no more waking up really early for high school anymore! You guys have no idea how many times I did this in the morning, face and all:

Also, I feel like I looked better for grad than I did for prom. Make up or what, I don’t know. What do you think?

Well loves, it’s time for me to go beddy-bye. But thanks for taking the time to read. Now I have blue skies ahead of me. Summertime is going to absolutely rock and so is next year! No high school! 😀 I shall miss my friends dearly but with today’s technology, I think we will be just fine. Also, I just gotta ask: how far are you in your education?

See you guys later! Love you!

Summer Hauls and More

summer-clothing-haul

You know, I’ve never really understood of the point in making videos of hauls and stuff, but then I started watching them and it grew on me. Not only are they fun to watch, but it’s also almost like watching a commercial for all the stuff you’re interested in along with a review by someone who’s not an actress. Therefore, I figured since I do that YouTube thing now, it’d be cool to make some of my own.

Here are some of the brands featured in my summer clothing haul and make up video:

STORES/BRANDS FEATURED:
♡ American Eagle by Payless ♡
♡ Bella Marie by Kozmo ♡
♡ Stitches ♡
♡ Ardène ♡
♡ Reitmans ♡
♡ Bluenotes ♡
♡ Maybelline New York ♡

 COMPANIES FEATURED:

All in all, the stuff that I had purchased was relatively cheap and pretty awesome.Things included cool new sparkly liquid eye-shadow, mascara, patterned high waisted shorts, cute summer dresses, and adorable shoes. Here’s the videos to watch:

I Went To Prom

FullSizeRender (20)

I know, weird, right? I originally wasn’t going to, but then I thought, I have a boyfriend so it could be fun, also I haven’t seen my friends in a while, plus it’s always nice to dress up for a change. The prom was Friday, June 5 and here I am on the Tuesday scrummaging around. So days before the prom, I contacted the teacher in charge and thankfully she said she could get me a ticket (she said they stopped selling them weeks before and only would give me one because she liked me. See, it pays off to be a good student.) So three days before the prom, I’m rushing to book appointments, get my dress, my boyfriend’s rushing to get his tuxedo, etc. It was very exhausting.

The theme was “Starry Night” which I thought was pretty dumb and boring. Apparently they had a vote for the seniors of what theme they wanted, but since I was never physically in the building, I didn’t get to cast my vote. There were options like “Midnight in Paris”, “Masquerade”, and “Arabian Night”. Any of those would’ve been better than “Starry Night” but I guess it had like two more votes than “Masquerade”. Oh, well. I dealt. 

For my boyfriend’s prom years ago, his theme was “Carnival” and they had a fancy hall downtown looking off the river with a light up dance floor and a cotton candy machine. To be honest, I would’ve rather had that.

As for the actual prom, it was okay. Standard. Like I thought it would be. Decent food, pretty crappy decorations, a bunch of pretty dresses, professional photographers and a cool unlimited photo booth with props. Since I was so late, I had to sit with people I wasn’t friends with, but that was fine, there was one kid who I liked there other than my boyfriend. Let’s just be thankful it wasn’t someone I hate. But the awards were all rigged. They were like, “Worst Driver”, “Cutest Couple”, etc. How would you know who’s the worst driver? You would have had to been with them driving, and you would’ve had to be with someone daily to know what they’re most likely to be like. It’s funny because everyone who won an award was either on the prom committee, or was the prom committee’s best friend. R-I-G-G-E-D. 

We only stayed for three hours, we left an hour early to get to Baskin-Robbins before it closed. And it was worth it, too. Most people went to a drug filled after party in the middle of a trashy field where people got beat up and stuff for the fun of beating someone up. Hope you guys had fun when the cops came. Anyway, my graduation is tonight so hopefully I can go there again. I shall make it my end tradition for everything high school. In other words, I never have to go back to that torture chamber so let’s devour ourselves in sweet succulent iced cream.

I guess that’s a bit over dramatic considering for the past two years I was never actually in the building. But I just hate school in general so whatever. Man, for a pretty positive person this blog post today is really negative. Okay, let’s think of some positive things about prom now:

  • I had a great time with Jacob.
  • Everyone looked really nice.
  • I got to see my friends.
  • I had a lot of fun getting all prettyed up.
  • Now it’s time for graduation!

What’s In My Bag?

All over YouTube and blogs I see girls doing a video, showcasing the items that they carry in their bags and totes. I thought it’d be fun to jump on the bandwagon and create my own bag tag video. This is for spring 2015. Here is what I carry in my bag at all times: 

Enjoy! xx
