Hairstyle: SockBun

I've got a sinus infection. 
I pretty much feel as if I'm going to die.
Your probably thinking I'm exaggerating but its just so hard to function correctly when your brain is constantly screaming at you for allowing it to hurt as much as it does. 
I don't have an outfit for this week yet, but I wanted to post videos of a hairdo I did last week I believe.
love sock buns. 
I hope you enjoy!

Pay 'em a visit please :) 

I'm a pretty big fan of buns! So here's another day where I wore a bun without a the help of a sock bun.
I do like the structure that a sock bun adds. But sometimes I like to vary it up. 

Happy Thursday!


10 Day You Challenge: Eight Fears

Eight Fears

Before I start I just wanted to say how much I look forward to Tuesdays. Is that weird? 
I'm always so excited to see what people will write as their answers. Is that weird?
Anyways, I just like Tuesday.
Although today I had an exam, and I didn't realize it.
He changed our normal Thursday to Tuesday this week for personal reasons and in my head I thought I had a couple days to go over my notes. I was wrong.
So, I'm just going to hope for the best. I didn't feel totally stupid. So that's okay right?

Snakes. I don't know when I developed this fear. I've never been attacked by a snake or even encountered one that was on the loose and wild and venomous.I can't even watch them on TV or see them at the zoo. I think they are ugly. They don't have legs or eyelids.
 ItsSsSs just wrong. 

Falling. I don't like roller coasters for this particular little detail. Whose idea was it that dropping at high speeds was fun? I can do heights, just not the dropping.
Although, I do want to skydive at some point in my life.

Losing my family. It would be like losing my life. 

Dying in a car accident.
I had myself convinced for the longest time that this was the way I was going to die. I got into a car accident on the highway when I was 16. Rolling and crashing in barricades and landing in a ditch are not my thing. Which is probably why I despise driving.
I also think I'm going to get run into when I drive to school on the highway EVERYDAY.

Good thing I trust in the Lord.

Not being successful at something in my life. I want to achieve success at something I love.

This fear probably comes from watching criminal minds or something related to that. I hate walking alone to my car in the middle of the night. Its crazy I know. But when I have to, I run. 

That I'll  be alone forever. This comes and goes depending on the day and how I'm feeling. Sometimes being alone is what I want, and sometimes I want someone. Its an odd thing. 

That I won't represent God in the way that I want. I want to represent love, hope and faith by how I look, speak and act. I fear that I'll let the worst of me come out and shine more then the best of me. But I can DO all things through Christ.

10 Day You Challenge: 9 Loves.

“Tis better to have loved and lost
                              Than never to have loved at all.” 

I love Him. 

Cake AND ice cream. Your probably thinking that's two things. But here's the deal. I love them equally. I can't decided which one is better because there both awesome. I mean, don't make me choose! DON'T! 

                                        A good country song.

I have this sort of obsession with sunglasses! Maybe cause I drive so often I realize how important they are. And they come in so many different shapes, sizes, colors and designs. You can express yourself through your sunglasses!

Superhero TV shows and movies.
Like, is there a reason why all superheros are hot and muscular?
All I'm saying is I love the view, the story lines and all the nerd people you watch them with.


You can gain weight, lose weight... get taller, shrink if you truly like.
They will probably almost always fit you!

A good book on a rainy day. (or any day)
There is nothing like investing time into a story that is so much more exciting and meaningful then your real life. 


I love summer time. But sweaters are my absolute favorite. Comfortable and warm!

Who says running the way to go?
All I'm saying it doesn't matter if you can't dance, its still fun!


All the girls want...

pretty clothes, pretty bodies and handsome boyfriends.

And all I want to do is eat.

Is something wrong?
(Just because its funny)

I’ve probably tried to lose weight like 20 times in the last 10 years.
I’ve probably tried 5 different diets, 7 different workout routines and plain old running till my legs fall off.
I’ve given up and started up again.

I have this weak spot for ice cream and cakes.
I’ve tried to convince myself that it’s for health and sometimes to give myself a boost of confidence.
I’ve tried to do it out of revenge because of a broken heart.
I’ve tried to do it to gain a boyfriend with my new physique.
I’ve tried to do it out of anger, sadness and loneliness.
I’ve tried…

I have this weak spot for ice caps and burger and fries.

I’ve decided that I’m just going to be fluffy and satisfied.
But I walk into a mall or my favourite store…
and the clothes don’t fit right.
so I’ve tried to do for clothes.

I have this weak spot for chocolate bars and donuts.

So what does one do when you've tried and tried?
 you try, try, try again! So todays goal: do something active. and have fun while doing it!
who said it couldn't be fun?

I wish someone would say:

Wish me luck would ya?

Get To Know Me.

So, usually I just post fashion blogs. But I want this blog to represent me in almost every way (there are things you don't wanna know, so I'll spare you) hehe
sooooooo, TODAY I decided to link up to a blog that I found by reading Knowing Tanya blog.

Hosted by Lauren & Tiffany

Todays Topic:
T.en S.ecrets

O.ne  I was scared of the dark until I was 12. Growing up with two brothers we shared a room in a small two bedroom apartment. We finally got our own house and I got my own room. It wasn't an easy transition. One day I got fed up with being wimpy scared and forced myself to sleep without a nightlight.

T.wo I didn't have my first boyfriend until I was eighteen. It was such a weird thing, because all my friends had already had like 3 or 4 boyfriends by then. I don't really know why not, it just didn't happen. And when I did get my first boyfriend, I had a small breakdown and worried about committing to young. it was weird.  I'm weird.

T.hree I was a little thief when I was younger. I stole all the time. Stickers, keychains, small objects at the dollar store. I couldn't help it. I wanted it and so I grabbed it. I grew out of it, thank God.

F.our I don't know how to swim. I mean, I can doggie paddle extremely well. But I can't swim like a real swimmer. I always get water in my ears and swallow about a gallon of water. I almost drown all the time no lie.

F.ive I have a really weird fascination with accents. This is probably not a secret, but I love them. I wish I had one. I mean, other then a "canadian accent" (which isn't even a real accent... Eh!)

S.ix I secretly dance in my room all the time. I love it. I love to dance. It makes me feel energized and happy. 

S.even I daydream about being a singer. I wish I had been blessed with a voice that the angels would have been jealous of! I wish I could write songs. I used to want to. But like most dreams, it died.

E.ight I used to write about every sad and emotional event in my life. When I was happy I was never inspired enough to write. I stopped writing because I stopped being sad, and became awesome instead didn't feel inspired anymore. 

N.ine I truly wish I could have a written blog. Don't get me wrong. I love fashion blogs, and those blogs are the ones i follow most. But I want to be able to write... not meaningless things, but things that people will read and inspired from. 

T.en I secretly wish that my future husband would one day come up to me and say something straight out of a Jane Austen novel. I have a weak spot for beautiful words. 

Come back next tuesday, and get to know me more! 


Fashion Weekend: Little Black Dress & Green Shoes

Happy Tuesday!

"You must know... surely, you must know it was all for you. You are too generous to trifle with me. I believe you spoke with my aunt last night, and it has taught me to hope as I'd scarcely allowed myself before. If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes have not changed, but one word from you will silence me forever. If, however, your feelings have changed, I will have to tell you: you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on. "
-Mr Darcy
