Rainy Days

Bath and Body Works Evergreen candle - smells like Christmas!

We have been getting a lot of rain this fall. There’s something about rainy days that makes everything feel cozy and at peace. Naturally, I bundled up in pajama pants and a big sweater, burned a candle (the evergreen scent from Bath and Body Works smells like a Christmas tree!), and cleaned my room. I love days like this.

I honestly wear khakis almost every day, even when I don’t have to wear them to school or work. They match nicely with my new rose colored sweater from H&M, boots, and a gray overcoat. I have really been getting into defining my personal style lately – something that I will blog about in the future. Please let me know if you’d like to see more fashion posts!

Raindrops on Flowers

Tons of these flowers are blooming in our backyard. This plant (I’m not sure what kind it is) likes to spread and is slowly taking over everything. I really don’t mind. 😉

Good night everyone!

Lately

Hey guys! There are sooo many things to catch up on. Here goes…

» The most exciting thing that happened this week is prom! There’s a homeschool prom for all teenagers that I went to and everyone went all out. Is was so much fun! Here are some pics…

I talked about my outfit in this video. I got ready with my friends. I had actually curled my hair but my half-asian hair never holds a curl (grrr) and it fell out within an hour. Anyhoodles… prom was so fun and I actually danced, which is really surprising. I didn’t have a date, which is totally fine because you know, independence and all. 😉

» The photo at the very top of this post is from last night when my choir sang the national anthem at the Diamondbacks game. I’ve done it three times before with my choir so it wasn’t super special, but it’s always cool being out on the field. There’s actually a three second delay for the sound to come out over the speakers, so it’s hard to stay on tempo (and sounds really weird!). We stayed for the whole game, then afterwards they had a firework show! It was cool because they turned off all the lights in the stadium. I’m not that into sports so I just talked with my friend the whole time.

» There are so many movies coming out soon that I’m excited to see. I’ll definitely be going to Fantastic Four, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Jurassic World, and Tomorrowland. They all look SOOO amazing.

» I’m working on getting all my pre-made Blogger templates made and ready for you guys. I’m so excited to launch my design shop! I called for some product testers a few weeks ago, and they were so extremely helpful. I’m trying to make them well-priced for everyone, so tell me – at what price point would you be willing to pay for a template? I’ll take this into consideration.

» I’ve been obsessed with grav3yardgirl‘s Youtube channel lately. I found her a few weeks ago and at first, I was totally weirded out by her crazy personality. But I started watching her videos more and now I think she’s totally awesome! I love how she doesn’t care what others think of her and how she stays true to herself.

» I’m totally getting the itch to rearrange my room and change everything up. I love how it is, but it’s been decorated the same way for almost a year now and I’m getting a little sick of it. I LOVE change so much, but the drawback is that my desk has a supporting piece underneath that’s screwed into the wall. So I’ll have to pull that out, fill in the holes, AND touch up the paint — but it’ll be totally worth it. Do you get this feeling, too? I just don’t get people who can leave their space the same for years and never be bothered! I guess I’m pretty restless. 🙂

I hope you’ve had a good week! What have you been up to lately?
