Many of Horror

"You say "I love you, boy."
I know you lie.
I trust you all the same,
I don't know why."
Biffy Clyro - Many of Horror

So here is a summation of my day today: Nutella Feast + The Princess Bride + Migi Nail Art Pens = Crazy wicked end to my birthweek (to my knowledge)! :3

(Cross-body purse with vintage French postcard design from Nanny. <3)

Caitlyn got me my long sought after Migi Nail Art Pens today!

(A blurry shot of my nails with white Shatter nail polish over some lilac OPI. I decided that Shatter's instructions were pretty simple and didn't need a tutorial.)

(First, remove all nail polish and apply a clear coat to protect your natural nail.)

(Next, apply two coats of a color of your choosing. I chose this mint green.)

(Then, draw little red, random blobs on your nails with either a nail art pen or the end of a bobby pin.)

(Finally, add tiny pink swirls and two or three leaves on each rose and a coat of clear. Voila! Veni vidi vici! You have yourself a handful of rosebuds!)

Also, a few friends of mine who could not go to my birthday dinner last week surprised me today by taking me out to lunch and we ended up having a Nutella Feast and watching The Princess Bride

(What have we learned today? Best. Birthweek. EVER! =D)

Haha, anyway, I leave you with Cobra Starship's new song that has me giggling as I play it on repeat. The best kind of love songs are silly and personal, I think. ^^

Here Comes The Sun

"Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been here."
The Beatles - Here Comes The Sun


Well, as stated in my previous post, last monday was my birthday and I turned 17.Woot! But what I didn't mention, was that it has morphed into something of a "birthweek." You see, my family and I had dinner the night before (Sunday), and most of my friends hung out with me on my birthday and the few following days. Those who could not come out with us have sent me my presents by mail or are making plans with me for lunches the next few days, so you can see how it would not fit to call this year's a mere birthday.

These are a few things I recently got for said birthweek:

(Burgundy lace tiered tank-top - Charlotte Russe)

(Faux-leather, flat bottomed boots - Wet Seal)

(Cream, mummy-wrapped ballet flats - Charlotte Russe)

I also just got this beautiful purse from my grandma and a scarf from my dad (inadvertently), so expect to see them soon. Also, I will upload a photographic tutorial on using Shatter by OPI (found on my thumb in the photo above) and soon after, the Rosebuds.

Back in Blue!

"All we need is a little bit of momentum,
Breakdown these walls that we've built around ourselves,
All we need is a little bit of inertia,
Breakdown and tell."
The Hush Sound - Momentum

Hi, lovely people! 

I have many stories, photos, and updates to share with you as soon as possible. I have hardly had time to breath this summer, let alone touch my computer all that much, so many apologies for the few weeks we lost contact. 

To start, I turned 17 on August (last monday)!!! :3 

The family and I had my favorites the day before: red velvet cake with coffee-flavored cool whip (made by my mom) and some sort of java ice cream. ^^

I had a little shindig with some friends and I was blown away with how much effort they put into my night. About a dozen or so of us went to my favorite restaurant and were startled by the deceptively loud wait staff when they sang to me, later saw Captain America (really good, I cried!), and eventually ended up at our usual coffee bar. Everyone is usually on vacation on my birthday, so this really got to me that they all tried to make it so special for me. Here are a few unorganized photos from the night, courtesy of my NEW NIKON COOLPIX DIGITAL CAMERA IN PLUM (I shall call her Mona)!

(From left to right: Caitlyn, Taylor, and me. My eyes are bugging unattractively from the flash of our second attempt to take this photo, lol.)

(From left to right: Me, Kelli, and Sammie)

(Caitlyn is my best friend and we startle quite easily, if you couldn't tell. X])

Oh, and I have a few new outfits to show you, which will be so much easier to post now with Mona in my purse at the ready. I am seriously going to commit now to regular posting, like I did when I first started out.

Also, I want to start doing regular nail tutorials. These past two months or so, I have become obsessed with nail art, and you can bet I will channel that into something productive, aside from new cute nail looks every week. 

Well, anyway, it's late and I just needed to say all of that before I burst. So until we meet again (tomorrow)!
