Wild One

"I want to shut down the club with you,
Hey I heard you like the wild ones."
Flo Rida ft. Sai - Wild One

(Here's my New Year's Eve dress. I had no make-up on yet. I apologize profusely.)

Also, this is my tumblr. Am I an addict? Yes. Am I ashamed? God no.


(These are the snowflake nails I promised.)

(First day back to school last week = new notebook paper! The clear polish made the lines run a bit.)

Not much is new in my life right now. Did some shopping, baked a LOT of snickerdoodles, adjusting to classes, angsting about an ex (this needs to stop ASAP), and I recently got honored in a district-wide art show. I'll post a photo of my work after I get it back. Swearies. :3

Oh, also, I've recently gotten into BBC's Sherlock and have no regrets. It has been much too long since I have seen a show this smartly written and funny. It's right up there with House and Doctor Who for me. The time-span between episodes was ridiculous and hopefully this time around things get along quicker. Speaking of hiatuses, Young Justice is still MIA and rumor has it that it will not return till at least March. *cue My Heart Will Go On by Celine Dion*

Oh, and I just typed all of this with wet nails. Come at me.

Into The Mystic

"Hark, now hear the sailors' cry!
Smell the sea and feel the sky,
Let your soul and spirit fly into the mystic."
Van Morrison - Into The Mystic

Thank you so much everyone for a fantastic year. It's been a crazy first year blogging, and though it may not seem like it, it's meant a lot to me. You can bet that I plan on riding out 2012 with you all, too. 

(Caitlyn, Caroline, and I wish you all a phenomenal New Year!)

Today's obsessions:
~Young Justice (new) and Teen Titans (reruns)
~Ed Sheeran
~Cocoa eye shadow
~Winter princess nails (see next post)
~Strawberry Daiquiri flavored SoBe
~Blue Valentine (got it for Christmas, I've watched it 5 times since then. :3)

I just got this red sun dress and the weather is supposed to be in the mid 50s tonight, so I think I'll take it for a spin. Expect to see me hamming it up next post. ;D

Also, I've gotten a few messages from people asking me to start up a vlog on youtube. I don't know, should I? It really threw me for a loop and now I'm seriously considering it. Mayhaps 2012 will be the year I break the youtube barrier with you all? Eh, who knows? Message me or something on your thoughts, please. 

Finally, I leave you with a video that is just a prime example of awesome friendship to me. I mean, how have my friends and I not built a giant slingshot-harness, dressed in loud outfits, had a slow-motion water balloon fight, and then proceeded to make it into a viral video set to a great song yet? Really, it makes me wonder . . .

Bust Your Kneecaps

"Johnny you told me,
You were no fool, you were no chump,
Then you got cold feet,
Now all you'll be is a speed bump."
Pomplamoose - Bust Your Kneecaps

So my lovely older sister Erin just turned 21 today. Gah! I feel so old (if that makes any sense)! 

Also, Finals are coming up in school and I'm not freaking per say, just afflicted with a healthy dose of fear. *sweat drop* Really, I'm fairly confident in all of my classes, just not my Math class. I have always struggled with Math, it just never made much sense to me. I'm usually a straight A student, but Math just tarnishes that with a C every single time. :/

(I was out the door to my friend Taylor's birthday party, hence the gift bag.)

Charcoal Wrap - Charlotte Russe
Biker Booties - Wet Seal

Oh! And here is my new nail polish caddy!

(I've got them all lined up according to color on and above the shelves, plus some ipod speakers on top. My nail art pens are tucked away in their package between the caddy and the restroom wally/counter. The row in front consists of OPI Shatter, glitter/sequin, thin tipped polishes for detailing, and my clear polish. I am SO happy right now. ^^)

"Lying in your attic I can feel the static,
The storm has broken,
Heavens  open, so electrifying,
Lost my heart between the sheets of lightening."
Stornoway - Zorbing

Hello, all!
There is a fantastic nip in the air, it's raining more frequently, and to top it off, the leaves are changing. To say the least, I love Autumn and Winter. :) These are my two favorite photos I snapped from my neighborhood.

Also, my mom just bought me a nail polish shelf/caddy for my bathroom and I am beyond stoked to finally organize everything. Expect a photo of that ASAP.

Telling me that you will be sweet,
And you will never want to leave my side."

My friend Caroline and I before we had our girls' night on Halloween. She was a French witch and I was decked out in 60s Mod wear. Haha, trick-or-treating is something we don't plan to give up till college, so next year will be our last time. But you know how our night went this time? 

Sugar High -> Candy Coma -> Halloween Hangover

Now my hair is still a tad damp from the rain outside, but this is the best photo I could take of it. It's naturally got really thick waves to it, but today I decided to rock my natural hair. I don't know, I kind of like it this way, so I may start letting my self sleep in an extra 25 minutes and stop straightening it. Woot! More sleep! ^_^

Single again (never date an ex, there is a reason you broke up in the first place), and loving all of my girl time. Note to self: only date if the guy trumps raw cookie dough and Dance Central all-nighters with friends. <3

"I'll hold your hand when you are feeling mad at me,
When the monster they won't go,
And your windows won't close,
I'll pretend to see what you see."
Foster The People - Waste

Well the weather here is absolutely lovely lately, what with all of the leaves changing and rainy days (be excited!). 

On a more interesting note, here are a few of my latest nail designs these past few weeks:

These are the tip of the iceberg in what I can do nail-wise, so I'll post more next post. Also, this new dress I just love! Since my last post, there have been a lot of long road trips to St. Louis and intense testing, so sweats/jeans and band tees have been my staples, unfortunately. Now that things have sufficiently calmed down, my posts and outfit photos will be more regular.

Obsessions this week:
~ *Nutella and Cinnamon Grahams 
~ Foster the People (before Pumped Up Kicks)
~ Blistex Silk & Shine
~Ankle Boots
~ **The New 52
~ Carole King

* I recently discovered that I am allergic to hazelnut and break out in hives if I have more than a few bites of it. I just make sure to take a Benadryl beforehand and the hives are manageable. Haha, do I have a bit of a problem? Yes. Should someone intervene? Probably. :)

** The New 52 is DC Comic's revamping of fifty-two of their most popular series to accommodate newer readers by essentially starting over with them. From what I can tell, there will be a lot of story line changes, and as a comic book nerd, I have some very mixed feelings about that. Also, what happened to Wally West?! As it stands right now, he is absent from all of the new story lines. This is not okay. -_-

So, I leave you with a photo of me discovering Singamajigs whilst clad in unflattering sweats and hoodie. 

Oh, yeah, and I'm trying things with Tyler again. Ah, dating an ex . . . *sweat drop*

Gimme Sympathy

"Talk like an open book,
Sign me up,
Got no time to take a picture,
I'll remember someday all the chances we took."
Metric - Gimme Sympathy

So the 60 degree rainy weather has finally graced us with its presence and I am ecstatic, especially with an outdoor campus. ^^ I just don't see why so many people fuss over cold weather. I mean, it's when I can break out my omni-present cardigans more casually and bake snickerdoodles/sip hot cocoa to my liking. What's wrong with that? 

Oh, and here is that manicure I promised last post:

(I will admit that this was not my cleanest work, but I blame the hangnails I forgot to pluck.)

To get this surprisingly easy newsprint look, keep scrolling:

1.) Cover your nails in a clear base coat so as to protect your nails.

2.) Do two coats (depending on your nail polish) of a light, neutral color, such as my Fiji Weegee Fawn by OPI. <3

3.) Pour a small amount of Antiseptic rubbing alcohol into a dish.

4.) Have a piece of newspaper at the ready. It does not take much, nor does it matter what it says, as it will show up partial and backwards regardless.

5.) One completely dried (and without a clear coat on top), dip one nail flat into the dish and quickly and firmly press the newsprint words to your nail for about ten seconds.

6.) Carefully peel back the paper and be careful not to smudge like I did with my middle finger.

7.) Apply clear coat so the ink does not rub off and repeat process for the rest of your nails. 

Also, lately I've gotten into rewatching all of the episodes of Batman: The Animated Series & The Batman. My Graphic Novel class is taught by my favorite teacher and I'm learning a ton about superheroes (which is really saying something, if you know my nerdier side), so it was only natural that it would have me prowling around the roots of two of my Top Five Heroes: Batman and Nightwing/Original Robin. 

Just for yucks, here are my Top Five Heroes (in no particular order, mind you):

*Nightwing (grown-up, original Robin, Dick Grayson)
*Flash (3rd, Wally West)
*Spiderman (he and Daredevil were biffles, just saying)
