Blogmas ~ Day 24 (Christmas Eve)

Hello everyone!! :D :D

So tis the night before Christmas.. and everyone has been so jolly.... I am glad to have spent this night with the people whom I love.. and it was, regardless of little arguments along the way, a nice day...

I woke up and had a few cups of coffee and finished cleaning the house.. we had a few more things to pick up and put away... and we were officially done cleaning at around 1:30 - 2:00... After cleaning, I started getting ready, that is, curling my weave! I curled my hair and applied a base to my face, then made my way to the TV to relax for a while, as my mother wanted to go for a shower... After she was done her shower, I began to do my makeup, I used all my normal makeup, but did a smokey eye and used some liquid eyeliner to thicken the appearance of my eyelashes!

By the time I was done my makeup, my brother and his girlfriend showed up and we ate some soup for supper and had a lovely visit...

After visiting for a while and eating up the delicious soup and sandwiches, I got dressed up and put a long maxi dress, sprayed some perfume and I was ready for mass!

I had to go to the church about half an hour early to sing some songs before mass started.. so we made our way, and my family found a good place to sit, while I sang a couple songs and then ran to the back to get dressed into my uniform (a white robe) as I am also an altar server... By the time I new it, mass was done and it was time to visit with all of the congregation! After visiting for about 20 minutes we left and came back home...

When we got home, we ate some food and talked over funny stories and then it was time to open gifts! I am so thankful for the gifts I have received and hope that everyone could spend their Christmas Eve with the ones they love, and that they feel appreciated and that everyone else could also feel thankful!

Lots of Love

Blogmas ~ Day 23

Hello everyone!! :D :D

So my hands feel so pruney right now.. haha we have been doing a house cleaning today, since this morning... of course, we didn't start until after a couple cups of coffee and breakfast, but we began this morning.

We cleaned the entire house for Christmas, and now it smells like Mr. Clean in here!

Now I am so tired and exhausted and its only the afternoon, haha I might have to take a little snooze... haha seriously though...

I am so excited to see my brother tomorrow!!!!!! I have not seen him for a couple of weeks and all of the food is prepared so all we have to do is neatly place the food on trays of some sort... YAY!

I cannot believe how fast this year has passed, it is already Christmas time...

So later on today, after being inside the house all day, we (my dad, my mom, and I) decided that we would go over to my aunt and uncle's house, when all of a sudden, the power went off, so we could not open our garage door, so we had a slight delay of about 30 min.. eventually the power went back on, so we made our way to my aunt and uncle's...

When we got there, my aunt and I went over to my cousin's house (my aunt's son, his wife and kids).. we hung out, I had a delicious cup of white hot chocolate and then we made our way back to her place.... Once we got there, we had some popcorn and just chatted about anything and everything while my uncle, my dad, and my mom were watching the Hockey game...

I then ran back home and grabbed the Christmas presents for my aunt and uncle (silly me, I had forgotten them), and on my way back to the vehicule, I tripped over a stool and hurt my knees especially my left one, it is now swollen and pretty sure I will have a big fat bruise on either side of my left knee and a small one on one side of my right knee... oh well accidents happen, and I am thankful that this one was MINOR...

So I made my way back to my aunt and uncle's place, and my aunt and I wrapped a bunch of presents, as tomorrow is Christmas Eve and she had not done all of her gift wrapping so I helped her out, and it was fun to be able to wrap more gifts...

Once we got home, we watched the end of Sound of Music, and it is now 12:30 and I am so tired so I am off to bed....

Goodnight everyone!! :D :D

Lots of Love

Blogmas ~ Day 22

Hello everyone!! :D :D

So this morning was quite busy, as was the rest of my day.. and surprisingly I did not have any coffee today! *WOW*

So at about 10:30 am, my friend came over and we started baking some yummy Christmas Treats.. I attempted to re-create Melted Snowman Cookies (Watched Zoella's Youtube Video), and can say that they turned out so cute!!!! :D :D 


We had a few mishaps along the way, but we tried a couple of them and they are so yummy!!! :D 


After making melted snowman cookies, we made some candy cane and white chocolate lollipops! So in order for these to turn out, we melted some white chocolate (but you could use any chocolate you want) and after melting white chocolate, we shape two candy canes in the shape of a heart and put a lollipop stick in the middle and pour the chocolate inside and VOILA! 



The final thing we attempted to do was to make some rice krispie square treats but put them in the shape of trees, sadly this did not turn out so well and I had to throw it out... 


So by that time, the day had passed and so my best friend had to leave, but I kept doing a little bit of baking.. I made some haystacks as well as a peanut butter and marshmallow square! 



So here are the picks of my busy busy day, and let me tell you, I am exhausted! 

Lots of Love

Blogmas ~ Day 21

Hello everyone!!! :D :D

OMG!!! Christmas is coming.... it is so close to being Christmas time and I am literally so excited!!! I believe I have finished wrapping all of the gifts and they are neatly placed under our tree... EEEEKKK I cannot wait for the others to open the gifts I have bought them, to see their faces, and really hope they like the gifts I have chosen for them :D

I cannot wait to spend some time with family and to see my brother ! I called him today to update him, and he told me he was also very excited to come home to see us!

Today, I woke up and had a cup of coffee, then it was time to go to mass at 11:00am... when we got home, I had a quick lunch and was off to Prince Albert to buy some last minute baking ingredients, as tomorrow morning, my Best Friend is coming over and we will be baking some yummy Christmas treats! I am literally so excited!!!! :D :D

I will be attempting to recreate some Melted Snowman Cookies (Watched Zoella's Christmas Treats video), some Reindeer pops (Tanya Burr and velvetgh0st's videos), and some lollipops made out of candy canes and white chocolate (Zoella's Christmas Treats)... We will also be attempting other random Christmas Treats... hopefully find some good ones on Pinterest!

I will be taking pictures of our day and that will be my blog post for Day 22!!!

So anyway, when I got home today, my dad, mom, and I had some supper, and then I finished wrapping a few gifts, went for a shower, and pampered myself a little.... This evening I have been watching youtube videos/vlogmas videos, as well as doing my nails for Christmas, and self-tanning because I look like a ghost!

SO now the hard part is NOT to RUIN the nails! haha seems easy but you literally cannot do anything for so long!

What have you been up to today? How was your day? Are you excited for Christmas?

Lots of Love

Blogmas ~ Day 20

Hello everyone!!! :D :D

So OMG!!!!! It's the 20th of December already!! Cannot believe how fast this month has gone and cannot believe that in just three days its Christmas Eve!! So EXCITING! Anyway so this morning I woke up and had a cup of coffee, with of course, my bowl of oatmeal *So healthy all of a sudden* and after watching a little bit of TV I was off to get ready to go to the city..

My uncle, my mom and I headed for Saskatoon, this morning at 10:00 am, because I was going to go write my FINAL EXAM today .. and you cannot believe how excited I was to get this exam done and over with... Anyway so because we left earlier than we needed to, we decided to go to lunch....

After lunch, I was really just in the mood to go to Campus, I figured the sooner I get there, the sooner I leave, and so my mom dropped me off and they went about shopping.. so I got to the exam an entire hour early, and there was literally NO one there.. hah at least we got a good spot in the line.. Like the line up went basically around the entire building, which, in words is hard to explain, but you should have been there... So the reason I got there earlier was A. to get a good spot, and B. to hold a spot for my friends who were also writting the same FINAL at the same area.. so yah...

So my friends showed up, we had some laughs and that really lowered my anxiety down, as I was not as nervous for the test. I had previously taken out my flashcards to study, but was having so much fun and having such good laughs, that I just ended up putting them away, and did not find them important... So finally, about 10 minutes before the exam started, the line started moving forward and so we made our way into the gym to write the FINAL.. the time had arrived...

It only took me an hour and half to complete the final which could have taken up to three hours, so felt pretty content about that, and the funny thing is that we all finished the exam at the same time, so we got to discuss our papers and laugh about answers we had written...

By that time, my uncle and mom were there to pick me up and so gave my friends some hugs and wished them Merry Christmas and said my goodbyes *actually pretty sad, like it was good to be done school but sad to say bye to my friends*

On our way out of the city, we stopped at Tim Horton's, picked up some snacks, and made our way to the grocery store, as we needed to buy some Christmas food!

I was home by about 6:00 pm this evening, and had a quick supper, because at 7:00 pm, my best friend came over to pick me up and we went ice skating in our hometown with a couple other friends of ours... it was a good time... *I totally fell on my butt and now it's bruised... OUCH* and by 8:30 I was back home... It has been such a long day and honestly this girl is tired... So holy macaroons I just scrolled upwards to see how much I had written, and well I am pretty sure I just wrote a bible... but oh well, makes up for the boring posts that I have been writting!

Blogmas ~ Day 19

Hello everyone!!! :D :D

So cannot believe that I have been keeping up with this blog ... So yet again I lied, I told you guys that I would be posting a blog blost every day and that from now on I would be posted them on time... but Friday night I was so busy studying for my FINAL that I did not have the time to put up a post...

So Friday, all I did was like normal, I woke up and had a cup of coffee, and my bowl of oatmeal/chia/hemp seeds and then I NEEDED to start the day... So from 9:30/10:00 am until 1:00pm, I was studying non stop for Biology, and by that time, I was pretty hungry, so I made myself a grilled cheese *YUMMY* and then started studying again... I studied from that time until about 5:00pm and had some early supper, we ordered in *I know, slap on the hand for being so unhealthy...but oh well* and then studied yet again, this time until 8:00/8:30 pm, then by that time my brain felt like it was going to explode, so I decided to go for a nice HOT shower, and watch a movie...

My parents and I ended up having some popcorn, and having a lovely evening, watching The Parent Trap.. *haha.. you know the one with Lindsay Lohan and Lindsay Lohan* After watching the entire film without falling asleep, I decided it was time for bed, by then it was about midnight... and knew I had to get up early enough the next day as on Saturday morning *TODAY* we had to leave at about 10:00 am, for the city...

So again, SO SO SO SORRY that this post was late but PROMISE it won't happen again!

Blogmas ~ Day 18

Hello everyone!! :D :D

So today I wrote my Chemistry final and I am so relieved that this exam is done and over with... I woke up and a cup of coffee, as usual, and got ready as I watched some daily youtube vlogmas videos, and then was off to Saskatoon, to go to my new place.. there were a couple of misunderstandings as to when I was going to show up, but that's alright, it gave me a sufficient amount of time to head to the mall and get some last minute Christmas shopping, but did not buy everything I needed to because after shopping for about half an hour or so, my roommate texted me and told me that she was home, so I went over, we had some delicious soup and we were off to the Campus to write our exam *we were both writting the same one, at the same place* When we got to the Campus, the line up for the exam was so long, literally went around the entire building, but surprisingly enough, we found a spot to park our vehicle and made it in time to start the exam at precisely 2:00pm... After the exam was completed, I handed in my Opscan sheet and my pack of papers and PEACED out ! My roommate and I were off back to her place, and then I left to go finish up my shopping and now I can finally say that my Christmas shopping is DONE... I left for home, and picked up some subs on the way home for my mom and I... After eating supper I spent my time watching some TV, and now writting this blog post...

I only have one more exam to write and I am surprisingly very excited for Saturday to come... So here's the deal, for every exam that I have written so far (Psychology, Physics, and Chemistry), I studied for a good three days in advance, but the unfortunate news for my last exam is that I do not think I will have done as much studying done.. It is what it is...

So my original plan was to study a little bit tonight and take the entire day tomorrow to study... but I am so tired from the day that I had today, that I think I will scratch that plan and just take a mini break... haha... and just chill out... I will worry about studying tomorrow, I don't sleep in anyway so I should be up fairly early at around 7:30-8:00 have a cup of coffee, and start studying.. I am determined to PASS all of my exams..  even though I barely studied *kinda ironic*... Anyway, I am gonna leave this blog post at that, and so GOODNIGHT <3

Blogmas ~ Day 17

Hello Everyone!! :D

So the reason why I am late on writting this blog post is that I was busy studying for my Chemistry Final exam that I had today... So December 17th, nothing really interesting happened, other then studying..

I woke up, had me a cup of coffee and a bowl of oatmeal *Eat your breakfast everyone* and then I started studying for my FINAL... I worked on problems from my textbook from Chapters 6 to 11, and also did some multiple choice questions from a previous FINAL of 2012...

So this past week I have been left feeling yucky and ill, I have a had a headache for three days, and I cannot seem to get rid of it.. :( It is probably just because I was ill a couple days ago/and the stress of the finals, but either way I think I am dehydrated... *Word of advice for everyone out there, drink water, even when you are not thirsty, as you are never supposed to be thirsty!*

I don't really have much to say, but on the bright side, I do think that for the rest of BLOGMAS, my posts will be posted on time!

Blogmas ~ Day 16

Hello everyone!!! :D :D

So again, a little late, but oh well it is what it is... So yesterday from just before lunch until about supper time I studied for my FINAL that is tomorrow... After studying basically non-stop, I decided to take a mental break, and turns out my parents were going out to our neighbors last night to watch a Hockey Game, but I was not really in the mood so I stayed home alone....

About an hour or so after they left, I decided to try to recreate Zoe Sugg's Christmas Treat (The Hot Chocolate) as well as make my own (Cake in a mug)... I had watched her and Alfie's video about the Christmasy treats and thought they looked delightful, although I did not have all of the ingredients asked for to make the lollipop hearts with white chocolate, and or the melting snowman cookies, but I did have ingredients to make a hot chocolate with whip cream on top and enough ingredients to make a chocolate chip cake in a mug!

So here are some pics from my experience, and I will say, I used a recipe found online for the cake in a mug, as I had never done one before! *In the recipe, they asked for applesauce, and so I made my own... SO DELICIOUS, it is my new favourite thing!!*

CLICK HERE is you would like to see the recipe used for the delicious Cake in a Mug!


What are your favourite Christmas Treats?

Blogmas ~ Day 15

Hello Everyone!! :D :D

So unfortunatly, the reason why I did not put up a post up yesterday, was because I was not feeling 100%, I think it must have been something I ate...

So yesterday's event, was fantastic, I got to see my beautiful sisters, and my wonderful aunt! I also got to see all of my cousins and have to say that the Family grew alot in a year.. I think there was a Gaudet Family Baby Boom... I swear there were more kids then adults! I also got to visit with my grandparents and that was good... there were a lot of kids running around screaming, and it was chaotic at times, but all in all the day was filled with laughter, joy, love, and there was even some kind of relaxation to this crazy day!

When I got home, I basically just sat around doing nothing because I was so tired... but I did have time to edit a video for everyone to see and is posted under yesterday's post as well as on my youtube channel!

Today, however, I did not feel so good at all, and believe it is from something I ate, I think I might have gotten food poisoning of some sort and so I was awake at 4:00 am this morning and watched a couple Cake Boss episodes, and some wedding dress shows on TLC and by lunch time I was feeling a lot better, I drank lots of water and tried to stay as hydrated as I could..

Although I was going to start studying for my Final on Thursday (Chemistry), today, I did not feel the best and so was only able to do a couple review material questions... kinda stressful now because I wasted a day that I could have been studying.. oh well I will just work extra hard tomorrow to get as much studying done as I can...

It is currently 8:10 pm and I am quite tired I might just watch some youtube videos, a movie, and off to bed..

Lots of Love

Blogmas ~ Day 13

Hello Everyone!! :D :D

So today was quite a busy day! I woke up and of course, like always, had my cup of coffee.. and at 9:30 am my mother and I left for Saskatoon.

We were on our way to the city, when I realized that I had forgotten my house keys.... ummmm so we had to turn around and go get the keys then made our way back on the road, to Saskatoon... We listened to Christmas music on the way into the city and it was a jolly good time... Once we got to the city, we went to my condo and got the last things to bring to my new place!

So after bringing down the last load of bags to the vehicle, I gave my ex-roommate the keys, and we were on our way to my new place....

When we got to my new place, we brought everything up into my condo, and had some pizza and just relaxed...

After having a relaxing lunch, my mom brought me to the University in order for me to go write my second final.. Although I have NOT received my mark for that exam, I do not think I did good on it :( haha oh well, I tried my very best, and I never know, maybe I did good on it *said in a sarcastic voice* lol

After my exam was finished, my mom came and picked me up, we went to Tim Horton's for some to-go supper, and we were on our way home *an hour's drive* and so when we got back to my hometown, my mom went to a Christmas Party, and I chilled at home, by myself, it has been a pretty relaxing evening... I wrapped the last gift for tomorrow, because I am having a family reunion tomorrow morning starting at 10:00 am... I will be seeing all of my cousins, aunts, uncles, my brother and sisters! It will be very fun, and I am super duper excited!

So I will leave you with that VERY interesting blog post!

Hello Everyone!!! :D :D

So my day was pretty laid back, this morning I woke up, and of course had a cup of coffee all while watching Property Brothers.. then I had to get crackle-acking and study! I studied until noon, and then went for lunch with my mom.

In the afternoon, my friend Danielle came over and we decided to make cookies! We were supposed to go skating but there was NO ICE as it has been such lovely weather lately that the ice melted :(

Today was a good day, my Best Friend came over and we had some very nice conversations and some very good laughs :D :D haha

So here are some pictures of our Chocolate Chip Cookie Baking with a side of Hot Chocolate DATE! *We had some festive Christmas themed cups.. and the cookies and hot chocolate were soooo DELICIOUS... *

Blogmas ~ Day 11

Hello Everyone!! :D :D :D

So after barely having enough sleep, I got ready, had multiple cups of coffee and headed to UNI to write the Final on Psychology 120... The bad news is I failed the final, the good news is that I did not fail by much literally by 1%.... haha whatever I cannot turn back time, I tried my best to succeed and that was all I could do, the test is over so gotta just move on....

After I was done writting the exam, I headed back home, and packed as much as I could into my vehicle and headed to the new place to unload some bags and boxes... I managed to unload everything and make a few quick stops along the way, and made it home.. When I got to my hometown I went to the Café and visited with my aunt, and uncle, and had yet again another coffee... haha it was much needed... My aunt then told me that there was going to be a fitness class for free that night, and apparently they have been having these classes every Thursday evening for a while now... I figured I would give it a go.. it was very enjoyable...

After the fitness class, I came home and attempted to study.. when I have been writting this blog post instead.. haha I will now go study!

Blogmas ~ Day 10

Hello Everyone!!! :D :D :D

So today was quite a busy day...

This morning I woke up, had a cup of coffee and got ready to go to Prince Albert with my mother... we were going to have a girl's day... We went for a nice Chinese Food meal, and then we ran some errands.. where I bought some Christmas gifts and little knick knacks for my new place *command strips and a frame*...

After running those errands we made our way back home, it was already 4:00 o'clock and I needed to head to Saskatoon... so I ran to Saskatoon, and as soon as I got there, my brother called and asked where I was (because he was supposed to come over and get my dresser to bring it to the new place...) I told him I just pulled up and parked, and he replied by telling me that he was on his way... *EEEK* So I needed to put everything in or on my dresser onto my bed... After moving the dresser downstairs *Thanks Kyle & Charlie* I finished packing my entire bedroom into boxes and bags... until 8:30pm...

After I was done packing, I went for a shower and tried to study... so by the time I wanted to go to bed I was not tired... YAY me.. *said in a sarcastic voice* because I needed to be up at 6:30 am the next morning to go write a final... ummmm ok.. so I didn't exactly have a good sleep and was wide awake at 3:00 am .. but oh well eventually fell back asleep and woke up at 6:45am... close enough...

So yah..

Blogmas ~ Day 9

Hello Everyone!! :D :D

So a day late, but is still posting a Blogmas Day 9... On the 9th of December I woke up, and in the morning, as I was getting ready, I thought a good way to start studying was to watch some youtube videos regarding Physics.. some Physics tutorials.... it did indeed help...

While I was getting ready I took a break and called my Friend from Prince Albert and had a very good long talk about personal subjects and this just made my day! :D

At 12:00 I had a lunch date with my Best Friend and her sister! :D In my small town, we used to have a restaurant and sadly it got closed down, but just about a month ago, it reopened!!! So we had lunch at the NEW restaurant and had a lot of laughs!

After lunch I dropped my Best Friend back at school.. hah she is in her senior year... and dropped her sister off at her house, and then made my way back home to study... I ended up studying until 5:30, and actually was quite productive...

Then I ended up searching for boxes and emptying out my massive suitcase, as I am moving some stuff out of my place in Saskatoon tomorrow and moving out some stuff into my new place! I loaded all of the gear into my little car and I am ready for tomorrow!

At 7:00pm the NEW Pretty Little Liars Christmas Edition episode was on and did not miss it! It was very exciting and new topics certainly arose during that episode...

I cannot wait for the NEW season, January 6th!

After watching Pretty Little Liars, I watched the Polar Express with my mom and thoroughly enjoyed it! It is so good! I love the actors, the music played, and it is indeed a sweet Christmas filled movie!

Lots of Love

Blogmas ~ Day 8

Hello Everyone!!! :D :D

So today was a pretty good day.. I woke up at about 9 ish, had me a cup of coffee, and then started to read all of the notes I had printed about psychology, to study for that final on Thursday... I read my 100 some pages until about 1:00 and in the meantime, I was also watching some youtube videos... I haven't had much time this semester to watch youtube videos and I used to watch them everyday... so I needed to sort of get updated on those... I attempted to start studying for my Physics Final (Saturday), but could not find the concentration.

I took an executive decision to leave the house, go to the church and practice my piano, as I thought it would be a good way to clear my mind, and although, when I came back, I still did not end up studying, I thought I had done enough today, and will try to do more studying tomorrow...

I cleaned my bedroom, and started packing for wednesday night, as I am heading back to Saskatoon, to stay the night because my exam is on Thursday morning at the University at 9:00 am.

So today I was thinking, maybe when I move into my new place, I will have a nicer place, and will have more space to install a video setup, and might be able to do actual vlogs... maybe I will get a better quality camera after Christmas, and this has got me thinking... I miss watching youtube videos, I miss writting so many blog posts, I used to write one or two/week and I miss it... I want to keep doing things that I enjoy... and even though my videos weren't popular I liked making them, it was fun and always laughed about myself when I was editing and cutting videos.. I watched so many videos and it has given me a lot of inspiration... I even changed my blog to a different background because I did not like the way it was before.. I like it better now.. and it is making me feel a little more inspired on writting blog posts, and maybe/possibly doing more vlogs..

Making videos will also depend on how busy my schedule is and I might end up doing one video and one blog post a week, and it depends on if I am in the mood to write.. I think I will attempt to have some kind of schedule on when I will be posting posts and videos, but I will not force ideas, and I will let it be.. whatever will be will be..

So after having a long actually quite boring day, I am going to go for a shower and then watch a movie with my parents...

What did you do today? What do you do to get away?

Blogmas ~ Day 7

Hello!! :D :D

So I had some very exciting news today!!! Last week I went over to a friend's house and as she was giving me a tour of her place, I kept thinking.. "OMG it looks like a hotel!" lol After giving me a tour of her place she told me she was looking for a roommate and so I just considered it.. This past week I texted her telling her that I was interested and that depending on the price, I could be her roommate!

So today I got a text telling me how much it was a month and I can totally afford it!!!!! I immediatly replied and asked her for all the details, such as power, heat, and monthly rent and what it would entail.. she told me that everything is included in the rent except for the food that I would buy for myself.. I then confirmed this with the roommate I have right now and let her know that I would be moving out the first week of January.. So it's official I am moving out!!!

So after finding out this exciting new I just cannot wait!! I just wanna move like today lol!

So today I started doubting my studying method.. maybe I should have started studying a couple weeks ago.. the thing with that is that I would have had to re-study everything anyway because my first exam is not until Thursday!

So my first exam is this Thursday (Psychology), and then Saturday (Physics)... then next week I have one on Thursday (Chemistry), and one on Saturday (Biology). I am just beginning to study like for real tomorrow and beginning to worry and second guess my decisions of studying.. Maybe I am just overthinking or maybe I am not.. I dunno....

Anyway enough of this babbling and talking for nothing.. haha

How do you study? What are your study methods? Do you spend most of your time, like me, second guessing your strategies??

Blogmas ~ Day 6

Hello Everyone!! :D :D

So today this morning I woke up and packed the rest of my things and came home to my hometown for an entire month... you have no idea how excited I was when I pulled up into the driveway.. even though I will be spending some of my break time, studying... I think it will be better because I will be in my hometown, I can relax and do some extra hobbies if I want, such as, figure skating, or playing some music, watching movies, finish a book perhaps... many things I want to get accomplished.

So when I got home today, I put up our Christmas tree and all the decorations are finalized now. I spent the afternoon playing the piano and now I am writting this post... hah

As my exams are approaching I am getting more and more anxious and haven't really started studying, but I did print out some notes so that's a start right? haha

I am also very excited for the 14th of December because i will be able to see my family.. my biological family because I am having a family reunion...

Anyway... My day was pretty laid back and don't have much to say...

So I had a pretty busy day yesterday and unfortunatly did not have the time to put up a blog post for Blogmas ~ Day 5.. But instead I will just post it today with Blogmas ~ Day 6...

So yesterday was my last day of University for my First Term, and I have to say... it has not sunk in yet... the first semester went by so fast, I didn't even realize it... Now is the time to start studying... EWWWWW... I really hope by studying extra hard that I will do better in the Finals, as I did not pass my Midterms... :( :(

I am trying to look positively on life and these exams... but it is really hard when you tried so hard to succeed the first time, and failed and fell flat on your face... I am hoping that that only made me a stronger person and hopefully I have my motivation back... I feel like I need to just stress less and kill these finals... :D

I am hoping that by coming home for the holiday break, it will be easier for me to study in comfort.. I am excited to be able to spend my Christmas break studying.... haha but its also important for me to have some free time too and so I will be spending some of my time figure skating and playing the piano.. :D :D :D

What are your plans during the Christmas break?? What do you do as a stress relief?

Lots of Love

Blogmas ~ Day 4

Hello Everyone !!! :D :D

So it has been a bittersweet sort of week.. Tomorrow is already my last day of classes for my First Semester in University.. I cannot explain how fast the First Semester has passed, and although there are many things I should have and could have done better, I cannot turn back time, and cannot do this First Semester over again. I will miss sitting in class with the friends I have made, but am excited to make new friends and stay in touch and grow closer friends with the ones I have already started to make. As I am on the topic of friendship.. I was looking through my IMovie collection on my computer and came across a video I made a while back.. it is just a song playing and pictures of some friends and family that I love and whom I've had some GOOD memories with.

**I would show the video that I made BUT there are far too many people in it and wouldn't want to post their faces all over the internet.... as I am sure some people would not be so happy with me.. Instead I will simply discuss FRIENDSHIP.**

The most obvious definition of friendship, would have to be to be friendly... haha *obviously*.. the next best thing in friendship is respect, as it is very important to respect your friends' decisions, to respect what the person wants to wear, what the person wants to do, what movie does the person want to watch, what the person wants to eat...etc... There are so many things to respect about one another but once you learn how to respect, then others will respect you as well. Another friendship trait is loyalty, no matter what seems to stand between you and your friend/s you will always be there for each other through the toughest of times.. I have had many confusing friendships, friendships that last a couple years like BFF's and then all of a sudden the friendship fades.. so I made new friends. But then all of a sudden, the friendship reappears and I let that friend back into my life, I know that that was the right thing to do. The right thing to do was to let it go and accept the fact that times and people change and sometimes the only thing you can do is to accept that and move on. Now I had more than one BFF and it became consusing, when I realized that it's ok to have more than one CLOSE friend.. It's ok to be respectful and loyal to more than one person..

Now I am happy to say that I have many friends when at the beginning it seemed like I only had 1. There are many people whom I can trust and many people who I cannot trust, but that's life and you gotta just move on. Moving on is sort of bittersweet in a way, because it's time to let go of the good memories, time to let go of the bad memories, and allow your life to gain new memories.

What is the meaning of friendship? What are your thoughts on friendship?

Lots of Love

Blogmas ~ Day 3

Hello Everyone!!! :D :D :D

Recently I have been trying to get into the Christmas spirit.. I decided that I would put up a blog post on things that get me into the Christmas spirit.

The number one thing that gets me into the Christmas spirit and that I wish I could do all year round.. is listen to Christmas music... The Christmas songs are so cheerful, so happy, and so joyous, they make me so happy... and I love listening to Christmas albums such as Michael Buble's Christmas Album, A Very Merry Perri Christmas by Christina Perri, Kelly Clarkson's Wrapped in Red, and recently has fallen in love with Pentatonix's Christmas Album called, That's Christmas to Me. Of course who could forget about the classic Christmas songs such as Jingle Bells, Frosty the Snowman... and much much more!

The second thing that gets me into the Christmas spirit is putting up all the decorations. The first thing on my list is the tree. The lights need to be just right, the ornaments perfectly placed, the Angel to protect us very nicely placed on the top of the tree... The tree is one of my favourite things to do and prepare before Christ's arrival. As a tradition, we place the Nativity scene at the bottom of the tree in order to remind us of the true meaning of Christmas, how the Lord is coming and how he will be our savior.

The third thing that gets me into the Christmas spirit is the Christmas movies... I love watching the classic Christmas films to get me into the festivity of Christmas. Elf, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, all of the Home Alone series, Jack Frost, and my absolute favourite film of the Christmas season, Borrowed Hearts. I love Christmas movies.

This year, specifically, I have this feeling of just being nice to others, doing good for the people who surround me. I want to help people who need it.... I want to give my jacket to someone who does not have one, I want to give food to people who are hungry, and want to make people feel like they belong, make people see and understand the joy in Christmas. We should all be happy this time of year, no matter who, no matter what, we should be spending time with the people whom we love the most and that is what Christmas is all about. Christmas is not about the gifts, not about the money, but about the people who surround us, the people that we love and sharing joy around the world.

What are things that help you get into the Christmas spirit? What are your favourite songs, favourite movies?

I hope everyone is having a GREAT month of December!

Lots of Love
~XOXO~

Blogmas ~ Day 2

Hello Everyone!! :D :D

So I have recently had a request for a blog post. After posting an Instagram picture, I was asked to do a makeup blog post about it. When I wore this look, I was trying out a new look, which included dark lips. Below is the picture posted in Instagram... It was my first time doing a crazy look like this.. and although I added a darker lip I still think that this look was pretty simple.


The Makeup I wore:

Arbonne Makeup Primer and Perfecting Liquid Foundation with SPF 15 (soft blush)



Sonia Kashuk Chic Luminosity Bronzer and Blush (duo)

They're Real Mascara by Benefit

Colour Sensational Lipstick by Maybelline (Plum Perfect)

I will definitely be wearing this look again throughout this month of December... What will you be wearing? What are your favourite makeup looks? Are you brave enough to wear the dark lip?

Lots of Love
XOXO

Blogmas ~ Day 1

Hello everyone!!! :D :D :D

Everyone, every year seems to get into the Christmas spirit at this time of year. An observation I have made in the past couple years has been the obsession with Vlogmas and I decided that I would participate in the best way that I can. I do not, however, have a good enough quality video so I thought I would instead do BLOGMAS.

For the entire month of December, everyday, I will attempt to put a post on my blog... I am not saying I will for sure be keeping up with this predicament, but I will however do my very best.

I thought a good way to begin this Blogmas thing would be to do a relaxing evening post.

Tonight I had a long, well awaited bath.. I attempted to take some pictures of the products used and for those that I didn't take, I will discuss... Here is what this evening consisted of.

To begin my relaxation evening, I first had to SET the MOOD.

1. I lit a candle *The smell of this candle is sooooooo delicious* 

2. I poured myself a hot bath, and added the Lush Butterball. *This was my first time using the Butterball by Lush and do believe this product helped my skin feel silky smooth :D *

3. I also added some Avon Bubble Bath for Sensitive Skin *Because I have sensitive skin, I thought this product would be good for my skin, it smells very fresh... But this was the first time using the product and so do not have a lot of proof that this product works for the skin or not. Based on this one time I used it, it seemed to be beneficial for the skin and will continue to use it.*

4. The final thing I added to the bath was a 5-in-1 massage oil from Arbonne *The aromatherapy helps me relax and de-stress*

5. I also had a facial and used the Deep Cleansing Mask by Arbonne *Makes the skin feel fresh*

6. After washing my face, I used the Nightly Resurfacing Pads by Arbonne *Scrubs gently any extra makeup that could be clogged in your pores, and is gentle on the skin*

7. I finally used the Arbonne Rejuvenating Cream to moisturize my face *Works really well*

What do you do to relax ?? What are products that you recommend? I hope this is the beginning of a wonderful month of December! :D 

Lots of Love
XOXO

Beauty

Hello!!! :D :D :D

I have not updated my blog in quite a while... and the reason for that is that I have been so occupied. If you did not know, I am now a University Student. I cannot start to explain how strange it feels to be here at this point in time. I feel as though everything passes so fast and sometimes I find myself struggling to catch my breath. I need to, sometimes, pause, and listen, listen to things around me. My first week of University was pretty overwhelming, and I felt as though I should drop out of one of my classes... as I have a lot on my plate, I am taking Chemistry, Biology, Physics, as well as Psychology... although it does not seem like much, for every science, there is a lab and with a lab, comes a lab exam, and with a lab exam comes a lot of studying and a lot of confusion. I was so overwhelmed that to be honest, I did not enjoy my first two weeks of University, every Monday, I could NOT wait for the FRIDAY. As the third week came along, the labs began and I was so anxious before all of my classes. I did not like the stress and felt myself stressing every night. I did not want to continue the term like this, always being stressed and always reading, studying, doing homework, assignments. So after talking to loved ones, I came to the conclusion that I would do a little bit of homework for every class every night, and the rest of the evening, I could relax and try to breathe... It is still hard for me to try to let things happen, to try to let it go, and ENJOY everything around me.

As the leaves began to change on the trees, as the colder weather grew, the leaves began to fall, and I feel at peace. I feel much better this past week, and feel much more confident in my schedule. Although I had a lot of things to get done this week, I got every single assignment done on time, with time to spare to relax, paint my nails, and watch my favourite TV show.

The other day, as I was walking towards my chemistry lab, I noticed, on campus, the beautiful scenery and I am blessed to be able to observe the beauty every day! Every day I am able to be apart of something beautiful, something beautiful that our Lord created. God created everything that surrounds us, and I am so HAPPY to be able to experience it! :D :D

I hope everyone in the world can see the beauty that surrounds us and hopefully everyone can look at the positive outlook on life, even through the toughest of times.

What is your definition of beauty? What are things that help you relax? What is peaceful to you?

Lots of Love
XOXO

Graduation 2014

Hello!!! :D :D :D

I have not posted in about a month.. shame on me… lol :P I have been so busy with my school work, as the end of the year is approaching, and I just had my high school graduation.

After 12 years of high school, the time had finally come for my graduation! After receiving our diplomas, my 8 classmates and I had done a surprise dance! We did a choreographed High School Musical routine.. in our prom dresses… :D :D It went as planned (minus the music that wasn't loud enough) and I wish to redo it…

On the Friday, we had a special mass, and then made our way to the community hall where we had the ceremonies and then of course a Grand March (in which we showed off our beautiful gowns).

That evening.. I attended my classmates' parties.. then at 3 o'clock in the morning went to bed…. because the next day, Saturday, was my graduation party. I had a supper in our garage and then afterwards we had a dance, some fireworks, and we had a great time.

What really made my graduation was my biological brother and my aunt Giselle who attended not only the mass, the ceremonies, and the Grand March, but also the party on the Saturday. As I am adopted it was hard for me to get the full effect of family attending my special day.. but with their presence I felt happy and I am so thankful they came… My biological mother, my biological father, my two little sisters, or my grandparents could not make it for personal reasons… but I am glad that my brother and aunt could!! :D :D I do not know how I would have made it through the weekend without them… I know it's a cheesy little line, but I love them and appreciate them so so so so so much! :D :D <3

Here are a few pictures from my special day!! :D

Lots of Love

Easter!

Hello!! :D :D

I hope everyone is doing Wonderful!! I hope everyone is enjoying the lovely weather, the snow that is finally leaving, the birds that are softly chirping, the grass that is slowly becoming greener…

This past weekend.. my family and I have sufficiently passed enough time eating a lot of food such as some lemon crinkle cookies, a little bit of chocolate cake, some cupcakes and of course many chocolate easter eggs!!!! I hope everyone have had a wonderful time with their family and friends and have had a perfect Easter celebration! :D :D

I woke up this morning with the urge to clean my bedroom.. And now even though I am exhausted from moving every piece of furniture in my room, I feel somewhat accomplished… I feel as though now my room feels cleaner, fresher, and ready for spring and summer….

I have watched many youtube videos for the past couple days.. and now am feeling more and more motivated to start a vlogging channel.. not just sitting around doing nothing.. but doing more things and bringing people along for the journey.. I am not so sure when this will actually happen.. but hopefully sooner is better than later in this case. :D :D

How was your Easter weekend? What makes you ready for spring and summer?

Lots of Love
xoxo
