But I'm going to TRY to post at least once a week. AT LEAST. The posts will be from Paige Renae's and my collaboration (which was SUPER fun btw. I'll have another post more on that(:)

Old Fashioned

Hi everyone~ Sorry for the delay of posts, but I {finally} have an outfit post for you all today!(: I edited the pictures so that they'd all be in one place, and I even put the item list in the pictures too! let me know if you guys like it more this way or not(:
Background: My mom was going to through this lovely skirt out, but I thought it had potential. So this is the outfit I came up with. Not brilliant by all means, but decent. I have a few more outfits with this skirt in the future(: ENJOY♥

Mess up.

Hi everyone!
I was going to have my blog sale video up yesterday...BUT when I put the SD card into my computer, I could not for the life of me, find the file! I don't know why videos don't show up, because I could watch it perfectly fine on the camera. I deleted it anyway, and I decided to take pictures of all of the items instead. So that'll be up (hopefully) by next week. And I'm So SO sorry for this misconvenience.
A HUGE update later!
Bye~~

E.L.F. Mini Makeup Collection + Update + Shout-Outs(:

Hi everyone!
E.L.F. Mini Makeup Collection:
Today I received my giveaway prize from Disney. I entered and found out I won back in April, and I only got the prizes now -.- So, you could imagine my suprise. One of the items were E.L.F.'s Mini Makeup Collection. I don't wear makeup, but this would be a fantastic starter kit to those who are starting to. It includes lipglosses, eye shadows, blush, bronzer, eyeliner, as well as brushes. I can't stop admiring the way it looks! They have amazing shades, and they're incredibly pigmented! {Swatches at the end}.
Update:
Also, I want to apologize for the lack of outfit posts, I'm really sorry. I thought this blog was going to be a blog where I post my outfits everyday. Then I realized something. The outfits I wear each day are very similar. And, I'm running out of locations to take pictures at! I need more areas! So I'm also on the look out for that.
Furthermore, I'm starting school in a little more than a month, so I'll probably have a Back to School Series to help(: I'm attending high school next year (9th grade), so I can't give that many tips for high school. But I'll definitely do middle school and school in general.
Like I said in my previous post about my new youtube channel? I'm working on that at the moment and I'm not going to give any information at the moment. {+ I'm scared of stalkers...there's always that problem..}. AND as for the blog sale? I'm taking the pictures currently and I'm still collecting things as I go. But it will be up sometime this week!
SHOUT-OUTS![:
I just want to give a couple of shout-outs to some beautiful girls. I'm so in love with their blogs and channels and I think they deserve a lot more followers/subscribers(: If anyone else wants a shout-out, please feel free to comment down below and make sure to follow my blog.

Yay or Nay?: Feather Extensions Trend

*Note: I used up a lot of my time to research this trend and "topic". The list of websites I have used will be listed at the end of the post. Thank you.

Hey! I'd like to introduce you guys to a new "segment" that I'm going to be putting up on my blog. Yay or Nay(: I'll be taking the newest trends and explaining them, giving my input on whether I like them or not, etc.! So for this first segment? I'll be talking about what everyone's raving about. Feather extensions.

Coming in all sorts of colors, lengths, and prices, feather extensions are a booming new trend. Celebrities from Selena Gomez to Steven Tyler has been sporting this new trend.
You can create beautiful combinations from these feathers. From thick and thin, long and short, there's definitely a feather out there for you!
There are so many combinations that you can do! Some websites allow you to make custom combinations, but some chose it for you.
These feather extensions run from $14-$300! There are different prices for how many extensions there are in the set. You'll also have to buy the crimp beads as well as the tool to put these extensions into your hair.

My Personal Experience and Thoughts:
When Kandee Johnson and Michelle Phan did videos about feather extensions, I was in awe. I wanted to get my hands on some almost immediately! Soon after that, I would see girls with feather extensions in their hair. My friend told me that there were feather extensions at a store in my mall, I made my way down there and saw them! OH, they were so pretty(: They were honestly the color that I would have wanted! {Except for the really short feather...}When the saleslady told me the price ($22-$25 for 5 extensions) I was a bit doubtful of buying it because I wasn't in love with the combinations. My mom told me to get the cheaper ones.
Therefore, instead of buying real ones I bought the fake, clip-on ones(: I got a 6strand for $5.99 and they're just bright vibrant colors. It's really easy to clip in, and I'm pretty proud of my purchase. I'm looking forward to going back for more!

*Note: I am aware that they take real feathers off of roosters and specially bred birds. And have to kill them in order to get the feathers.

Thank you so much for reading this! I do appreciate it, and I hope you enjoyed!

What are your thoughts on feather extensions? Yay or Nay?

Shirley

P.S. Blog/Youtube Clothing & Shoe sale coming upp(: {so...thinking of making a youtube channel for this}

HElloooo Helloooooo(:

Hi everyone!
Long time no blooog!(:
Anyways, I've been back since Tuesday, and there was a special surprise when I got back!
My cat (Buttercup) gave birth!!!! At the moment, she just gave birth to two kittens, but by the end of the night, it came to a total of six beautiful kittens! When we left for China, she was already...around 3 months pregnant, a little less, but I'm so glad she waited for us to come back to give birth(: {PICTURES AT THE END}
Anyone heard of the ISA Concert that Wong Fu Productions always has? It's in Seattle this year = I CAN'T GO! ='( This makes me uber sad, therefore my days are spent on the computer staring at the tickets. sigh. They came to my city last year, but the tix were sold out! Ohmigosh, I was heartbroken. Seemed like someone broke up with me =( I hope they come on over again next year♥
ABOUT CHINA:
I got internet there + a laptop, but blogspot was blocked in China, so I couldn't even read some blogs. So sorry for that! And with the outfits, I'm not going to post {not because I didn't take pictures..pshh} because I just wore shots and plain v-necks the whole time during the trip. so..uh..yeah. Not much. But I've been hoping to buy the new Seventeen Styling book thing, I think it'll help me a lot with my style(: So yehh(:
BTW, does anyone know where to get a pink/coral blazer? I've been looking for one, and in the August issue of Seventeen, they said there was one from Charlotte Russe, but I couldn't find any...Any suggestions? Under $30 please(:
OH School...getting ready for that even though it's a month and more away(:
See you later♥

Class of 2011

Hey(: As few of you know, I actually graduated middle school on Monday of this week(: It's been a memorable experience and honestly, I don't have any regrets. Although there were nights that I stayed up till 12 a.m., it has just made me a stronger person. The teachers have pushed me and helped me along these past two years, and I thank them so much for their help. I'm so thankful for my family. They've helped me on those bad days that I've had, and those days where I just couldn't take staying up all night again. I thank my friends for always being there with me every step of the way, through the ups and downs that we all had together, I'm glad we come out stronger than ever.
The ceremony was a tearful and happy event. I had to say good-bye to some of my friends, but I'll never forget them. All of my friends have a special place in my heart (I know. Cheesy much?). Now, uh...paparazzi pictures(: And a special guest (who..doesn't know she's in this..haha)
