MAC Plumful

Unfortunately I haven't been blogging as much as I wanted to, but you can thank my 2 AP classes for that.
Anyways, I got this very exciting gift from my parents about a moth ago; my very first MAC lipstick! It is in the shade "Plumful" in a Lustre finish. I was introduced to this through Lily's blog, and it looked so pretty that I had to have it. I will say though, that it looks a lot pinkier on me than I thought it would. In the sunlight it looks lighter and in the evening a darker plum colour. You can dab it on your lips sheer or built it up to a more opaque color. The best thing about this is that it is an easy to wear bold lipstick, and it doesn't dry out your lips!
I think this is the start to many more lipsticks-oh boy! They are just so easy to wear and you can take risks with your makeup that way. Oh, I'm getting excited just thinking about it. :P

Manicure Monday- OPI Russian Navy

Welcome to the new series of Manicure Monday! Every Monday there is going to be a new nail related post on my blog.
I came up with it last night and I was over the moon about it. My arm literally darted to the side of my bed to grab my iPhone and take notes on it, so I don't forget- thanks amazing memory for that! :P

The nail polish I have on my nails at the moment is "Russian Navy" by OPI. It's everything that you would want a purply-blue to be. It sort of changes between the two colours depending on the lighting and it has a slight shimmer to it without being over the top. Two coats of that and you're good to go!
Look out for Friday too. There is a surprise series coming up!

Out of the ordinary

Bella made a new friend :P
Today was different day for me. I took a break from the old "staying in my laptop all day" kinda thing, and I was SO thankful for it. My mom, Jenness and I went thrifting, which is always fun, except for the times where you can't find anything you like. Thankfully that wasn't the case today.

After out little trip, I was dreading going home because I knew that I was just gonna sit around having nothing interesting to do. Fortunately Jen and I went to this park close to our house that we found out about a couple of weeks ago. The weather was glorious today. Our walk mainly consisted of me taking random pictures and us talking about Karma and Feng Shui. Yup, we like to have deep conversations every now and then. :)

My New Year's Resolutions!

I have always heard people talk about their new year's resolutions, and I was like "I should do that sometime". However, unlike others who don't follow theirs, I have promised myself that I will stick to my resolutions.

Resolution #1
Plan my time a little (or a lot) better!

Resolution #2
Eat healthier.

Resolution #3
Exercise more.
What a surprise! I bet you haven't heard that from pretty much half the people you know :P

Resolution #4
Make the most of my time,

Resolution #5
Have fun!

So, those are my new year's resolutions. I'll report back on whether it's working out. I hope everyone had a nice Christmas and winter break.
2013 here I come!

Live the life you love. Love the life you live.
