Look of the Day: 1

This is a new kind of post I'm going to start to do to motivate me to dress up whenever possible! I'll do this for days that I particularly like my look, and get a chance to take pictures of it

Blog: Winter Storm Jonas

Here's my best photos from Winter storm Jonas!

Pretty icicles

This one was right when the snow was finally stopping and the sun was trying to come out. I like the creepy end-of-the-world look of this picture.

Morgantown's High Street! The snow definitely didn't stop students from exploring/fun/partying...

As you can see here, WVU students know how to make the best of a snow day! Sledding and snowboarding down the streets!  Also there were some people throwing snowballs out their windows at people walking by...

This picture really shows just how much snow we actually got.

Well, back to school tomorrow, but this was a really fun storm! I adventured out in it a lot, got two extra days off of school, got a lot of pictures, and went sledding!

Review: Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lip in Rebel Red


I've got another review for you!  I've read a lot of bad reviews about this stuff, but I like it! It's not really matte, is more like an almost matte lip gloss.  It has a buttery feel to it, and a strong sweet smell that you can taste a little bit. Sort of annoying, but the amazing color makes up for it. Though, it doesn't dry like most liquid to matte lipsticks do.

This is what it looked like when I dabbed it off right away

I really like this stuff, and want to try some of the other colors!

Review: Rimmel London Stay Glossy 3D Lip Gloss in Popcorn for 2

Hello! <3 

I'm going to do a review of this really cool lip gloss I got recently! It really caught my eye because it's duo chrome! It's the Rimmel London Stay Glossy 3D Lip Gloss in Popcorn for 2. I tried it by itself and over a nude lip color. It smells kind of plasticy, but it's not bad, and it stays on pretty well, without feeling gross or tasting weird.

Here it is over a nude lip color!

And here's a swatch on my arm

And that's it! Now I'm going to wait for snowmageddon AKA winter storm Jonas to make its way here. Hopefully I can at least get some cool pictures out of it!

Blog: First Snow Pictures!

Hello! :)
 Here are some pictures I took from a random, mini snowstorm last week. The snow was gone within 2 days.  I think there's a possibility of  a really big snowstorm at the end of this week according to the weather though!

First of all, here's a close up picture of just the snow, because the morning sun made it sparkle! In the first picture, I brought up the saturation to make it have a bit of a pastel rainbow, and the second, I did the opposite so it would be pure white.

And here's some frosty grass I saw before the sun hit that side of the hill in the morning!

...aaaand that's all for now! Just a snowy teaser! It's currently snowing now, A LOT, so maybe the predicted super snowstorm is here earlier than be ready for some more snow pictures coming up.

Diary: Current Blog Plans and New Year Resolutions!

Hello everyone!

There hasn't been too much to blog about lately, but I'd like to try get back into it! I will go to Japan after I graduate college to live and study there, so I will have plenty to blog about then, and maybe even a short trip this spring.  But for now I'll try to do some reviews of makeup and contacts and whatever, my photography, and photo shoots to get back into it!

I guess I can add blogging more to my New Years resolutions list...along with:

1. Wear makeup more often and experiment/get better at it
 2. Study Japanese more, and be a better student in general
3. Get more organized
4. Do more photography and modeling
 5. Draw and design more
6. Blog!
*7. Friends!

Basically, be more motivated to do everything I like and want to do, and bettering myself in every way I can. I've been getting worse and worse with being motivated, especially for school and things I don't super like doing, and even for things that I do enjoy doing.  

Yay, first post of 2016! =D

 *Edit: I decided I needed to come back to this post and add this. I hope this semester keeps going well, and I can manage to get a job, not fall behind with school work and want to give up on it, and become closer to my new friends and continue with my old ones!  I should add making/hanging out with friends to my New Years resolutions...over the past year, I've lost and grown apart from, and made and sort of lost again, the few rare people I could call best friends. I'm very picky about who I call a 'best friend.'  I can't even exactly explain what it is, I have so many good friends and acquaintances and good people in my life, but there needs to be a little something else there.  I think I may have met some new people who have potential to be really good friends, maybe even a best friend. I don't know.  I don't realize how much I missed having this until I feel something close to it again.  A best friend can feel almost like falling in love or going through a break up!  Is that weird? Is it just me?
