Red lipstick

I have a new recent obsession.
I am obsessed with red lipstick.
I never thought I could pull off red lipstick.
Maybe I was just self conscious.
Or maybe it's the fact that I rarely wear makeup.
For whatever the reason, I have decided that it was totally silly to ever think that!
Any girl can look good in red lipstick.
When I wear red lipstick I feel completely invincible.
I feel like I am on top of the world and everyone notices that confidence.
Some of my inspirations are:
Kate Beckinsale in Pearl Harbor
Hayley Atwell in Captain America

Naomi Davis from Rockstar Diaries

I saw a tutorial for lipstick from The Girls with Glasses Show and thought you might enjoy it too!

Also I learned a cool trick from Kelly!
You know when you where lipstick and it gets on the inside of your lip and then lipstick gets on your teeth?
Problem solved! Just do this:

So smart!
Hopefully now you all feel confident enough to wear some red lipstick!
Trust me it's fun!

Me? Procrastinating? Never...

Did I just spend an hour procrastinating doing my homework?
How do you ask?
This addicting website.
Ha it makes me laugh.
Check it out.
You won't regret it, unless you don't get your homework done like me...
You might regret later in that case...
But really take some time to see it. 
It's great.

I have 3 things on my mind right now

Recently I have had a lot of things on my mind, 
but the things that are the most pressing 
and that seem to keep me from getting a completely restful sleep are (in no particular order):
 Starting a business is hard work.
My entrepreneurship class is great and I'm really enjoying it, but it is definitely stressing me out a bit.
I'm sure everything will turn out fine, but for now I can't really stop thinking about it.
I don't think I even said what we decided to do, but just so you know we decided to do the baby blankets.
My recent problem is finding a way to get fabric for a good price.
Question for my readers: How much would you pay for a homemade baby blanket?
AND What could be added or enhanced to the blanket to make you pay more for the blanket?
This is slightly related to the first one.
I am thinking about adding a business minor.
It might add another semester to my schooling, but I think it might be a smart idea.
Luckily it's not a very long major and I've already completed some of the classes.
I think it would be really applicable to me.
Then if I ever want to start my own business, I'll know what I'm doing.
London Study Abroad this summer?
I got an email this past weekend from one of the professors that do the London program telling me to apply.
I've always wanted to go to London.
I think I would really love it.

I mean look at that view. BEAUTIFUL!
The only thing that is pulling me back is that my family is planning a family vacation for the beginning of August and I might miss it.
Unless my family decides to push it back one week...
That would be great.

So basically I have some big things on my mind.
I know everything will work out and I will be exactly where I should be.

Today is a special day.
Today is my cute cousin, Peyten's birthday!!!
She turned 6 today and I can't believe how time flies!!!
I love Peyten to pieces.
We have a lot of things in common and maybe that's why she has a soft spot in my heart.
She likes to dance, I like to dance.
She likes shoes, I like shoes.
She likes sparkles, I like sparkles.
She likes Barbies, I like Barbies.
She likes pink, I like pink.
She likes princesses, I like princesses.

    Things I like about winter:
    1. snow falling = magic
    2. wearing boots
    3. wearing fun socks
    4. wearing tights
    5. wearing hats
    6. wearing sweaters
    7. hot chocolate
    8. staying in to watch movies
    9. Making paper snowflakes
    10. the twinkling lights at the Riverwoods
    That was really hard and considering most of them were things I wear it's kind of pathetic.

    Things I dislike about winter:
    1. getting up in the morning when it's still dark and cold
    2. sitting on a cold toilet seat
    3. static hair
    4. getting out of the warm shower to freeze in the cold air
    5. walking on ice/slush
    6. cold toes
    7. cold kitchen floors
    8. when the "heat" is on but it still feels like it's cold when you sit under the vent
    9. walking home in the dark even though it's only 6pm
    10. bundling up a ton to walk to school and then walking inside and it feels like you walked into a Hades domain
    That was significantly easier.
    Not that I don't like winter sometimes, there is just things that I really don't like about winter.

    I need your help

    This semester I'm taking a basics to entrepreneurship class.
    In this class we are divided into groups and we have to create a small business.
    Half of my grade depends on my group making $1500.
    Yeah, $1500!!! 
    That seems like a lot of money...
    Well, I am coming to you to see if any of you have ideas for a small business.
    It has to be something that doesn't cost too much to make, but that we could make a fairly large profit on.
    So far the ideas we have thought of are baby blankets/pillows/aprons (something with sewing, you might have guessed that this was my idea...) or we also thought maybe doing iphone covers.
    Just comment below with anything you think would be a good business! 
    Any ideas are much appreciated!

    Listen up T- Swift

    Sometimes I have a very vivid imagination.
    Especially when it comes to great imagery in a song.
    You know who has great imagery? That would be Taylor Swift. 
    Don't tell me you've never closed your eyes and envisioned one of her songs as a music video before.
    (oh that's just me? Well this is awkward...)
    Anyways...I'm sure you've heard of her song "Speak Now."
    If you haven't shame on you.
    Repent and listen here:
    Speak Now by Taylor Swift on Grooveshark
    Wouldn't this song be the perfect music video!?
    Honestly I don't know why Taylor Swift hasn't made a music video for this song.
    Well I've been thinking I really should let Taylor Swift and everyone else know what I think this music video should be like.
    I decided a letter to my dear friend, Taylor Swift is in order.

    Dear Taylor,
    I just want to let you know that I think you are the coolest girl ever. You have songs that speak to my soul and apparently to every other girl in the world too. I have been thinking that it's about time you really, REALLY should make a music video for your song "Speak Now." I'm not exactly sure why you haven't made a music video for this song yet because it would be the cutest video. In case you don't know exactly what you should do for your music video I have thought long and hard about this. I will gladly give you some great ideas in exchange for letting me be in the music video. Pretty pretty please! So I will just give you a step by step of what I think your Speak Now video should look like. 
    Pan onto a typical, cookie cutter wedding at a church with you, Taylor, singing outside. Then you sneak in to a side door and sheepishly wave at his friends like this:
    Show the bride's family, of course dressed in pastels, and they have to look snooty, something akin to this:
    But in pastel.
    Next pan into a back room that shows the bride wearing a BIG, poofy dress shaped like a pastry, yelling at a poor bridesmaid, tears are not necessary, but if you want added effect that would definitely work. Then show Taylor singing in the back corner of the church trying to go unnoticed. When you say daydream you need to look like this:
    and then you will have it kind of bubble into a daydream. In the daydream Taylor will burst into the doors and sing the chorus at the doors. Then in the short music break show people in the church getting ready for the wedding. Then show the organist, looking daunting and intense because he's playing a song that sounds like a death march. Show Taylor hiding behind the curtain singing her little heart out. Bride begins walking down the aisle and she looks something like this:
    Go back to Taylor behind the curtains. Then go back to the daydream for the chorus. Show the bride walking slow motion down the aisle. Then have a series of shots between the bride, the groom, and Taylor. Then show the preacher and show his mouth as she sings the words, "speak now or forever hold your peace" Then silence and no one moves. Show Taylor stand up from behind the curtain and when she says "eyes on me" do a zoom in on each word until it's a close up of Taylor. On the part where it says horrified looks well it would something like this: 
    or maybe something like this:
    Both are appropriate. Then show Taylor looking at the groom and the groom looking at Taylor. Then it will show Taylor singing (not in the church) you know like in a field or a glade with trees or something like that. While she is singing it will go back to the wedding scene and it will show the groom smiling at Taylor and then it pans to the front of the church with Taylor waiting. The groom will come out not wearing his tux, but everyday clothes. He'll grab Taylor's hand and they will run down the steps to the get away car. The music video will end with them either smiling happily at each other in the car or maybe them gently kissing, although now thinking about it I don't know if that would be right considering he just walked out on his wedding to another girl. So I'm thinking the smiling would be better. 
    Well I guess that's all of it. Sorry for the long winded letter. Hopefully you enjoyed it and maybe you'll incorporate some of my ideas into your video when you do make it. 
    Love, your adoring fan,

    So I've been thinking...

    If you know me you probably know that I like to sing.
    I like to sing for real, but most of the time I just like to pretend I know words to songs.
    Well, not even words usually...mostly I just make up sounds that sounds like the song.
    My dear roommate, Brooke, she has been wanting me to make a CD of me doing these said noises.
    Today while we were driving I was entertaining the idea and you know what it sounds like more fun every time it is brought up. 
    I mean come on that would be pretty awesome, right?
    Well, even if you don't think it would be, i do and maybe one day I'll actually do it.
    I'll name a song after Brooke in honor of her idea and I'll also give her a free signed copy of the CD.
    Let me know if you would like one too and I'll put you on the list.
    Then one day when I'm famous, you can tell everyone you knew me when.

    Christmas, New Years, and everything in between

    Don't worry I'm not dead.
    Due to laziness being busy I haven't written on here in a while, but I'm back now.
    Sometimes when I go home I forget about the rest of the world and just spend time with my family.
    I love that. A lot. 
    My break consisted of family, friends, lots of sleeping, puzzles, games, Just Dance 3, Kinect Sports, cookies, eating a ton o' food, Civilizations 5 (so what, I'm a nerd), shopping, playing with cousins, and really doing nothing all day. It was the best break ever.

    Check this out!

    Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year's!
