Oh 12th || Autumn Ramble!

OMG! It has been FOREVER since my last blog post and i am very sorry if any of you really read this. I have been working like a crazy lady and when i get home i'm pooped and i don't want to do anything. Ever had the feeling? 

This is me ^^

Anywho0o it's December a winter month and i have failed epically at the Autumn Bucket List from MarieBitsandClips  :( S0o I'm going to do one big ramble of all the things that still need to be crossed off the list. Readyyy ?!

I'm not big on the whole cooking thing but I'm pretty sure that to make something autumn-ish you need a heap of this stuff!

Apparently you just add 2 eggs and evaporated milk
and you can eat it straight outta the can!
kidding!! don't do this! it's a tummy ache ready to happen.

I didn't make this but if you look up pumpkin roll maybe you can and then you'll have made a little piece of autumn heaven. It's pumpkin cake rolled and filled with cream cheese stuff! It's s0o0o delicious!

yummm !!

Waiting for Christmas and Tumblr. Oh! and watching my favorite youtubers!
If i had a bit more friends and a little excitement in my life i would have posted a great picture of me at a corn maze or on a hay ride. Unfortunately, thats not the case but my laptop is just as cool! haha 

During autumn and winter, dark nail polishes are my fave!
Butter London "Saucy Jack" and L'Oreal's "Breaking Curfew"
Cinnamon-y reds, browns and golds are my go to eye shadows for the season.

hhmm i don't think i have any special decoration for autumn but i did put up twinkle lights around my bed to be a bit festive.

phew, done! haha well that was just my attempt to not totally suck at not finishing my first bucket list. so i hope you enjoyed and i promise to be less MIA.

Birdy's cover of "1901" played whilst i typed away. Have a listen! its lovely.

Oh 11th || Face Time

hiii!!  hope you are all doing fantastic! I was on Pinterest a couple nights ago and i was scrolling along when i saw this...

Baking Soda face cleanser!!
(not to be confused with other substances haha)

and i thought hhmmm lets pin! I pinned it and then i tried it the following night, it felt so cool when i rubbed it on my face. haha My face felt wonderful after and blemishes and redness had died down a bit.

What you need:
2 tbsp baking soda
2 tsp water

Wash your face! You want to start off with clean and makeup free skin. Then, just mix the stuff and apply. Rub it in small circular motions all over the face. Be gentle! its exfoliating even though, it's doesn't feel like it. You can leave on for 5-10 minutes (or don't) and then just wash it away completely. Your skin will feel a little tingly afterward. Then just apply moisturizer.  

I read a couple variations of this. There is another that includes honey into the mix. I also tried this one and i liked it better because it was nice and smooth and honey moisturizes the skin so it left my face super soft.

What you need:
1 tbsp honey (raw/organic)
1 tsp baking soda

Again you want to start off with a clean face and then just rub the mix together and apply. Always be gentle to your face! I think this one, that includes the honey, can be used more often because it's softer and gentler to the skin.

*Be Gentle!! Can't stress this enough, always be gentle with your face, it's sensitive and rubbing like crazy and picking at blemishes will make things worse. It will cause redness, irritation and discomfort and worse of all: scars!  
So be nice to your skin, it means you no harm! 
*Be Patient!! Can't stress this enough either, and i know it's hard and frustrating but your blemishes, if your lucky, will probably go away by themselves or you may have to try a billion things before you find your "it" product or routine.
 So take your time, Rome wasn't built in a day!

I am EXTREMELY insecure about my face, i have terrible skin and it makes me angry and sad almost everyday. Sometimes i say "eh, who cares!" and other times i don't even want to see myself. Having facial blemishes can make any girl or boy freak out but when you have them all the time it's killer! GRRR it makes me so angry. I feel like i try everything and nothing works or it makes it worse because i have such sensitive skin. And it makes me even angrier because i use to have pretty rockin' skin. I didn't need makeup nor did i have to worry about keeping up with acne products or soaps and stuff, i just kept on with my day. And then BAM! out of nowhere i started to get really bad blemishes and now, i have to see ugly spots on my face that never seem to go away no matter what i do. Most days i feel dirty, insecure and un-pretty, so that sucks, majorly!

But one thing to always remember, even though i know first hand that it's really hard, always, alway love and treat yourself right! Don't let your flaws define you, because they don't! You may feel insecure and extremely down about something that others may not even notice or they don't care. Have you ever noticed that when you fancy someone (and it doesn't have to be in a "love you" kind of way)  that you suddenly think they are pretty and everything they do is just peachy? Well, i do haha and i think it happens to most without them noticing, so your true friends and people who genuinely like you will look past your flaws and love you for what's important.
 Beauty is not everything! 
Be happy in your skin! ;)

Let me know how it goes for you or if you have any suggestions on other face stuff!

Well hope you enjoyed!!

Oh 9th || Boo!

Hello!! Well today is the 31st of October as you may know and its also Halloween!! :) Now I'm not a big fan of the whole dressing up, mainly because i have no life and therefore no parties to attend haha, but today i did dress up. I didn't go all out but i did buy myself a nice little witch hat and off to work i went. 

The little hat came with a clip attached so i curled my hair and plopped it on!
As for my makeup i did eyeliner like usual and added a shimmery purple to match.The dress was a plain black dress that has a layer of lace so i thought it looked witchy enough. I kept it spooky but still professional since i was wearing this to work and i can't go on scaring customers. haha

A quick joke i heard from my mother who could not stop laughing while she told me:
Why was there no food left after the monster's party? 
.....because everyone was a goblin!! HAHA
i think i was laughing more at the fact that she found this horrible joke so hilarious. 

Well, that was my short costume post for Halloween!
I hope you had a spooktacular 31st !!!
Comment and share your day with me! :)

Oh 8th || Autumn Bucket List: Favorite Drink

Hiiii lovelies ! today's post is part of the Autumn Bucket List. As you all know i adore Louise (Sprinkle of Glitter) and while reading her blog a while back i was led to another blogger, Marie Bitsandclips, who came up with this idea. What i am to do is to capture a picture of my favorite things from this fantastic autumn season and do a post on it. I have a list of things to do, see the picture below? that is my list and hopefully i'll be crossing some of those items off ! :)

Click above to see the original master mind behind of all this ! :)

Today i will be crossing off the first item of my Autumn Bucket List! My Favorite fall drink. Now, i am not a pro at ordering at Starbucks and i definitely don't go up to the counter and ramble off in coffee bean language, all the choices kinda scare me and i like to keep it simple. One shot, two shots, add this and that and a hint of this and a punch of that--not me, very cool, but not me. So my choice is a bit of a boring one compared to other posts i have seen but nonetheless its my fav! it taste like an autumn's day in a cup! it is Starbucks' Chai Tea Latte! its smooth, foamy, spicy and sweet. i love it when the cool weather starts because this is sure to keep me warm! :) 

Hope you enjoyed !!
OMG!! have you heard the new song by the great One Direction?! it is fantastic and it played in the background while i made the post! have a listen! <--Click it! i know you will love it haha

Emma Watson...this girl! she is just so classy and elegant and sexy and, and, and so many things! i find her so pretty, so pretty! i like how this girl functions. haha she's smart, pretty and she seems like a true and good person.

Oh 5th || Be Happy !

Hello lovelies!! i feel as though its been forever since my last post, but i haven't been up to anything special lately. I lead a very boring life and sometimes i get very sad because of that. so this post is a bit of a venting one, i apologize for that but its just something i feel today. i started to type another post about some other stuff and i deleted it because i just wasn't feeling it.

any whoo so i was on my favorite site haha Pinterest! and i love reading the quotes that come up, some are inspiring, others are funny and cute and then there are some that i read and I'm like "YES!! thats totally me right now!" haha recently i found this one:

And i sighed and agreed with it. let me tell you something: i hate and i love Facebook. haha i like it because i get to communicate with my sister and a few other friends that live far away, and i also get to see a little bit of what's going on with others. But this is also the reason i hate it! i see what others are doing, the fun they are having traveling and going to school and all the friends they have and I'm just sitting here all by my lonesome not having any fun. haha i know i sound like "oh i lead a horrible life and feel sorry for me please" but I'm not saying those things I'm just telling you how i feel at times. i see these things and i compare my life to others and even though i know i shouldn't do that, i still do it! and i only hurt myself. Because even though i wish i was away at college or traveling (grr like one of my friends haha) or partying or having friends i can call up, i do like my life and i know that i have it quite nice at the moment. Let me tell you a bit about myself. i did not go to college or uni right after high school and even though it worries me that i have to go, i cannot, for the life of me, decide what i want to study! people ask me at times and i draw a blank. i like so many things that i have no idea what i want to do with myself. Oh! it just stresses me out and then the only way to deal with it is to take a nap! haha so when i see others on Facebook doing all these things for school or because of school i get jealous and upset with myself. And that is not very awesome at all. because even though I'm not doing all those things i am quite content with what i have right now.


 i was at work the other day and i realized i do like my job and i like coming here and spending a couple hours out of the house, its nice. And i do like coming home and spending time with my mom or on Pinterest or skyping with my sister. And i am pretty happy right now so i need to stop comparing. because i do, i want a lot out of life and i do wish to go to school soon (hopefully this spring!) and i do hope to travel (London is calling, and so is Spain haha) and even though i want it all right now, i know all these things will hopefully come to me or show up in my life when i am ready. 

So that was just a little vent. i am sorry if you didn't like the post  but ill be much more chipper next time. But if you feel similar or like to compare yourself to others i urge you NOT to! (i too, am trying hard to take this advise) you only hurt yourself and you underrate the things you have. So be content, I'm not saying you can't dream or set goals or want more out of life, but i am saying that when you dream and you set your goals, set them for yourself, for who you are and for what you want, not because someone else has it or wants it. Always make sure you're happy, because if we're not happy then whats the point of it all??

I know its always said and most of us are like i have no idea who i am but... Always Be You! say what you want, feel what you feel and enjoy it because you'll feel relaxed and free.  by doing these things you will slowly discover yourself, what you like, who your true friends are and what you want to do. Im still discovering me, and that is why i find it so hard to settle, so even though i am telling you all these things I'm telling myself too. i have a lot to learn from myself and what i want. So join me in this little journey of finding and being ourselves! let's be happy together! :)

hope you enjoyed !! don't forget to comment! i would love to here your thoughts!
OH! i was listening to this lovely little song called "Velvet Arms" by Jay Loftus, have a listen! its catchy!

Oh 4th || Big Wish list !!

Hello lovely roses!! i have just arrived form the mall and i am so sad to say that i did not find what i was looking for. :( i had gone in to purchase a scarf that is a beautiful rosy pink, but when i got to the scarf rack they were out! unfortunately, now i may have to travel a little farther to get my scarf.  i was so sad, on the plus side, i bought a sweater and a white tunic all under $15 !! 0o0o0o the sales rack! And while i was there i spotted some other things that i might just have to go back for, and so i have made a wish list today!

My Wish list :

i LOVE scarves! they're just s0o soft, plush and warm. :) you can never have t0o many!

H&M, Forever21, H&M
the powdery pink, on the left, is the one i long for!

With the chilly weather already nipping at our noses i want to keep warm with these pretty sweaters!
the minty one, on the right, would look nice with dark jeans and nude flats. 

For some reason i have been wanting a leather jacket, no idea why, i just want it! i don't even know if i'm a leather jacket kinda girl. haha but I'm pretty sure anyone can be, you just have to own it, right?  As for the plaid and the boots, it's fall! they're a necessity!

Zara?? i really just google imaged it, that goes for the plaid shirt t0o, TOMS booties

OMG! i need another pair of jeans prontO, these are for sure a mandatory! the tees are just basics (grey/white), and the blazer, i LOVE blazers. Blazers are wonderful, when they fit properly they make you look thinner! :)

AE jeans, H&M tops and Blazer

And then, for the finishing touches! If i don't have a boring color then i have a deep red on my nails and so i have been wanting to try a different shade. I have been eyeing that Essie blue! ;)

earrings: H&M, ring: Forever21, Essie nail polish.

S0o0o that is my wish list! i just wanted to share all these pretty little things that make a fat ugly dent in my wallet. I'm pretty sure if i step into the mall again i could add a million other items to this already long list but i must practice some self control. haha :) i'll be sure to keep you posted if any wishes make it to my closet!

oh dear, i hope i haven't elongated your wish list t0o much.

Olly Murs' "Oh My Goodness" played in the background, have a listen! it's a g0od one. :)
