The Fairy Tale Tag!


Whether we like to admit it or not, most of us as girls have had a period in our life where the idea of fairy tales and them coming true was just the best thing ever! I saw this tag done by Sammeh over at Odds and Sodz (here) and I just couldn’t resist having a try. You should definitely check out Sammeh’s answers as well as they are just great.

Snow White – Do you consider yourself beautiful?

I know that people say that you should believe that your beautiful because everyone is, and that’s true, but at times it can be hard to remember that and I’m just like ‘no, no, no’ on that day. Then there are other times where I just feel amazing. I don’t get it though because I’m pretty sure that at times where I’ feeling either way I’m still looking at the same face, so it just makes

no sense.Sleeping Beauty – How many hours do you sleep at night?

Well . . . ideally we’re meant to get around 8, but I’d be lying if I said I got that much. Being as obsessed with the internet, reading and pretty much anything procrastinating related combined with the stress of studying, I can estimate that I get about probably 5 hours of sleep in. I do have crashes during the day, especially Saturday’s where I feel like I want to sleep for a year. It’s safe to say that I have a very unhealthy sleeping habit that I should get fixed. Hopefully I can work on that this summer – pinkies crossed.

Cinderella – Do you have a curfew?

Well I don’t go out much so . . . . But really though, my mother can be a bit overprotective at times. But when I do get the chance to go out with friends, curfew is around 9 – 10.

Rapunzel – Do you love being outside?

I love being outside, but I prefer being inside more. I’m more of an indoors person.

Red Riding Hood – Do you trust strangers easily?

I’m very reserved around strangers, I have a wall up around people I don’t know and I’m always cautious and it takes a while for me to warm up to people – part of this is just because I’m a generally shy person.

The Wolf and the Seven Young Kids – Are you easily fooled?

I don’t think so, I’m very skeptical about things. I over analyse and in my head it’s better to not believe and find proof than to just accept something.

Beauty and the Beast – What makes someone beautiful in your eyes?

What makes someone beautiful to me? A person that doesn’t pretend to be someone they’re not. Someone just being themselves 24/7.

The Little Mermaid – What would you sacrifice for love?

I really just don’t know, it depends on how you look at it. But still I have no answer to give. Sorry . . .

The Frog Prince – What do you find disgusting?

I really don’t like ignorance, it’s so upsetting to me. When someone does something wrong that they know will lead up to bigger consequences but they just don’t care. Like for example littering, it urkes me to no end, I mean “Hellooooo, do you want to end u living in a landfill?”. But yeah, ignorance.

Jack and the Beanstalk – Do you have any plants?

Well my mom has the yard filled with them. But having one of my own, I tried a couple of times but then it never really work out. I remember in 6th grade I had my plant outside and something came and at it and so a couple days later and planted something else and sprayed hairspray on it thinking that would keep the animal away, but the hairspray just ended up killing the plant anyway so . . . . But looking back on it now all I’m think is “Really Shannon, hairspray? Really?” :D.

Puss in Boots – Do you have pets? If not, do you want them?

Yep, I have to little munchkins – I mean puppies. It’s funny though because I kind of have a little fear of dogs. I’ve had a few bad experiences with them growing – I was even almost bitten by one – but yet I still love them. Even now with my own dogs I kind of freeze when they start jumping on me – even if I know that they’re just playing.

Bluebeard – What is your weak point?

My sympathy. I’m always trying to find something good in what someone’s done or a situation. I don’t like  jumping to conclusions or being judgmental.

Pinocchio – What is your biggest wish?

Well I have many dreams; I want to publish some books of stories I have running through my brain, to be a pro makeup artist, to move to London/New York/Australia and the list just goes on. But my BIGGEST dream I would have to say is to get my fashion line up and running, that would just make me so happy to have accomplished that.

Peter Pan – What is your mental age?

My mental age differs depending on who I’m with and the situation. I can be a completely immature person – like there’s a 9 year old trapped inside me – there are literally times when I’m just itching to annoy someone. My friends can understand that because they’re just the same. And then at other times it’s like the 9 year old’s 30-something year old mother is trapped me. I’ve been told that at times I seem older than I am because of the things I say or the way that I think.

The Star Money – What is your most valuable possession?

Well I guess that would have to be my laptop, I am obsessed with the internet after all, I barely eve watch TV any – other than for my special shows, I mean a girl has to get her weekly does of Pretty Little Liars. But yeah though, the laptop.

Gold Mary & Pitch Mary – Are you a hard worker or a lazy one?

It’s sad to say but . . . I’m a lazy bum. Another thing that I need to work on. 😀

The Snow Queen – Who is your best friend?

I have three best friends and we’re just a bag full of crazy – some more so that other. But yeah, their names are Brianna, Rachelle and Noelissa. I can always count on them to be there for me when I need it.

The Princess and the Pea – Are you sensitive?

Very much so, overly so actually. The over-analyst in me can’t help it.

Godfather Death – What qualities make a good parent?

Trust and understanding. For a parent I think that it’s very important to remember that at one point you were right at the stage where your child(ren) is/are and it’s really good to be understanding bout that – don’t be too hard on them. Trust, it’s an important thing, I mean without trust in the relationship where are you, it’s important to built it in your relationship and  to intertwine some understanding with that too.

The Twelve Dancing Princesses / The Worn-Out Dancing Shoes – Do you like parties?

I do, although I do get little bouts of anxiety before I go, but it’s all gone by the time I get there. There good, but too much of a good thing . . . .

The Emperor’s New Clothes – Do you care a lot about your clothing?

Yes, I do. I find that clothing is just one of the best methods of self expression. There’s so many ways to mix and match and it’s a great feeling to put a look together and be like “Yep, I did that”.

The Brave Little Tailor – Do you consider yourself brave? 

I’m a fake brave person. When I’m in a situation where I have to be, I put on a brave face while I’m secretly screaming on the inside. But you know, ‘gotta go whatcha gotta do’.

And there you have it, my answers to ‘The Fairy Tale Tag’, I hope that you’ve enjoyed it, I know that I definitely had fun writing this! I tag everyone to do this.

Bye everyone and I’ll talk to you in the next post!

The 13 Year Old With Her Own Clothing Line

The 13 Year Old With Her Own Clothing Line

A short post today, but I just thought that you all should hear this.

Today this post goes out to someone that I think is truly inspirational: Isabella Rose Taylor. Isabella has her own clothing line, Nordstrom will be hosting her line in September and all this is happening while she is only 13 years old. Yep I said it, she’s thirteen.

Her brand is called Isabella Rose Taylor and you can check out her store (here).

I have to say when I found out about her – today – I was really shocked that she’s achieved all of this at such an early age. Did I mention she’s a freshman in college?

You can hear more about her breaking into the world of fashion and through the doors of Nordstrom (here) (here) and find her on Twitter (here).

Bye everyone, I hope that this has been a refreshing post!

Blogger Wishlist

 I thought I’d do a blogger wish list post as there are definitely some blog enhancing tools that I’ve been wanting for a while now. Check it out:
Blogger Wishlist
  1. A Camera

What’s a beauty/fashion blog without pictures, right?

I’m particularly interested in the Canon Rebel t5i as I’ve read a lot of positive reviews about it and I’ve seen the quality of pictures that it can produce. I can have this, and then leave my smaller camera for when I’m pressed for time and space when I’m heading out.

  1. iPad

This would make blogging on the go so much easier, I wouldn’t have to lug around my laptop and its bulky case – Lord knows it’s heavy. So this would be really convenient.

  1. Laptop

Although I do have a laptop, I’ve had it for a bit over two years now and it’s been through a lot since I’ve gotten it – falls and viruses to be exact – and I’m just so glad that it’s still with me right now; but with it crashing once or twice a week now, I think the end is near.

  1. Camera Bag

What’s a better way to cart around your camera than in style? I really like this camera case from JCPenney. It’s simple and chic and the light pink colouring just adds to my love for it; it could be paired with so many outfits.

  1. A Notebook

Any corky notebook would do, and it would be best if I started planning what my blog posts would be about at this point. Yes I really don’t plan these things. I absolutely suck at organising. Planning ahead would definitely help me to prioritize more with blogging.

  1. Pens

What better way to plan my next blog posts in my funky looking notebook than with some funky looking pens? The pens in the picture are perfect candidates for the job.

Let’s see just how fast I can accumulate the things on this wishlist. Maybe by this time next year I’d of already gotten them.

 

Are you a fellow blogger?

 

What are some things that are on your wishlist?

 

Bye everyone and I’ll talk to you in the next post!

Hello everyone, as the title of this post suggests . . .  I’ll being giving you guys a bit of insight on my birthday this past Thursday.

A Trip to the Island Next Door

Last week I went on a field trip with my Spanish class to Saint Kitts where we spent the whole day. I took some pictures, mostly throughout the latter part of the day and I wanted to share them with you guys. I’ve been meaning to post this for so long and it’s finally here.

Image

You can see the Marriott Resort (Saint Kitts) in the distance.

Image

This is Saint Kitts as we were leaving that afternoon.

Image

Again leaving Saint Kitts. You can see a cruise ship docked at Port Zante.

Image

Again leaving.

And there was a guy on the boat taking pictures on the way to Nevis and he was nice enough to send me some of the pictures he was taking. Here are some of them:

Image

There was a pelican following the boat.

Image

Image

This is us getting back to Nevis.

Image

Docking at the pier in Nevis.

This is the end of the trip and I hope that you’ve enjoyed the pictures.

Bye, and I’ll talk to you guys in the next post.

#2014BloggerChallenge – New Years Inspiration

“May Light always surround you;
Hope kindle and rebound you.
May your Hurts turn to Healing;
Your Heart embrace Feeling.
May Wounds become Wisdom;
Every Kindness a Prism.
May Laughter infect you;
Your Passion resurrect you.
May Goodness inspire
your Deepest Desires.
Through all that you Reach For,
May your arms Never Tire.”

― D. Simone

1st(VRO)

Hey everyone, ¡Feliz Año Nuevo! (Happy New Year!)

This is my first post of the new year and my first ever post for the #2014bloggerchallenge. Wow, it’s really 2014 already, I can hardly believe it!

But, in disregard of me living in December 34th, the first topic for the #2014bloggerchallenge is based on new year’s inspiration. The quote that I put above is basically the epitome of what inspires me for the new year. The new year for me is a chance to continue on and it’s a continuing chance to do want you want to do and fulfil your goals and dreams!

And there’s so much that you can do in life if you only try, a new year symbolises a chance to do that.

So don’t let this year be like the last – even if the last year was the best you’ve ever had – let this year be better than all the others. Work harder and play harder! There are 362 days left in this year, and there are just too many possibilities out there. So I urge you not to waste those days – not a single on. Life’s too short to spend time doing nothing. Do something.

Thank you guys for listening to my rambling, and I still haven’t heard from you guys what your New Year’s resolutions are. So, what are they? Let me know.

Bye guys and I’ll talk to you in the next post.

Day 10 of Christmas – A Little Chit Chat

Image

Tomorrow – which is in about an hour – is Christmas Eve. Now, there’s a little tradition in my family in which we leave all our Christmas shopping until the night before. Sounds absurdly stressful doesn’t it. Well, it’s not really. I’ve been doing a bit of scouting around downtown when I’ve had the chance – which isn’t much –  and so tonight, it’s on. I’ve been in need of a few beauty essential and I plan to use Christmas Eve as an excuse to splurge.

Image

And, also I think I’ll pick up a bit of something something for you guys as well. Do I see a giveaway in the near future? Gasp! Are you excited?

Anyway wish me luck.

Christmas Eve here is kind of like a big event here, like a party that everyone’s invited to and so everyone gets all dressed up to go out. I’ll be doing a OOTD (Outfit Of The Day) post later tomorrow so you guys can see what I’ll be wearing.

So this is it for day 10, WOW, this whole little blog series went by really quickly.

Bye babes, I’ll talk to you guys in the next post!
