Summer Time!

Lately I've been alllllll over social media sites, so make sure you're keeping up with me! I have links to all my pages on the sidebar.
ALSO I know you all must be dying to hear all about my Fiji adventures, seeing as how I've been home for a little over a week now. No worries my lovelies, THE POSTS ARE ON THEIR WAY. I'm planning on doing a little series where I cover a few days within a single post and make the posts continuously throughout a week or two. But in order to do that I need to have the posts done and ready to upload. So be patient, I promise they will be up eventually. :)
I have lots in store for this summer. I hope you're ready for all the madness!
Au revoir xx

Prom Night

Every high schooler has high expectations for prom. Thanks to movies like Never Been Kissed, 10 Things I Hate About You, and She's All That. It's seen as the peak of ones high school career. The night of all glitz and glam. It's been made into this big thing with the perfect hair, the perfect dress, the perfect dinner, everything has to be perfect. It's an exciting thing to experience! My Senior prom was no different.

 The day started with me getting up early and starting the whole getting ready routine. I showered and curled my hair, leaving it pinned up like a little old lady. I then headed Rachel's house where I did 3 girls hair and makeup (which was chaos). We ended up running behind schedule, so by the time we were done I had barely anytime to finish my own hair and do my makeup! In the end I managed to pull it off.

Dinner was at The Melting Pot. There was a big group of us which was fun, and let's be real.. the food was amazing!

The first course was an artichoke cheese dip (I'm actually drooling while typing this, oh man.)
The second course was a variety of meats and sauces. Mmmmm.
The third course was CHOCOLATE!!

The venue was the Blackstone Country Club. We walked up the brick walkways, through the big intricate gates and into the courtyard. Our eyes were met with tons of sparkling lights in the dark open sky. It was a moment just like in the movies. That moment of complete awe and admiration. I felt like I was a character in gossip girl. So put together and elegant.

When we arrived not many people were there yet, but more and more came throughout the night. We all hit the dance floor regardless, and if we weren't out dancing you'd find us at the refreshment bar. It really was the best of both worlds. 

 Here are some pictures that were taken throughout the night.

Truth is that the night ended before I was ready for it to. We danced, laughed, ate some crazy candies, and enjoyed every minute. In my opinion the night lived up to my teenage dream expectations. The only thing missing was a smokin hot date ;) but it was definitely fun being able to go and experience it with my gorgeous best friend. She brought so much joy to the night, and I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. It was the perfect way to end senior year. 
Here's a short montage video of the night that I made to remember the night by: (Please excuse the poor film quality and my exotic screams and laughter)

I'm sure everyone would agree that it was an amazing night. One that we will all always remember. :)

Hope y'all like them as much as I do. It was loads of fun. :) Here's some BTS.

RIP to the Memories

I recently went through a major heartbreak. Here's what happened.

The other night I was getting ready for bed, I had already taken my makeup off and put my pjs on, and was getting into bed. You all know me, I'm a big wimp, so as I turn my lamp off I run to my bed and jump in as fast as humanly possible. And as part of my nightly routine I sit in the dark on my ipod and take one last sweep around all my social media sites. This is when I realized the little red notification on my settings app. So I open the app and figure out that theres a new software for iOS 7.1.1. The little notification bubbles on the apps have always bugged me so I decided to update the software. After I had put in my password to give my approval, a loading page that said "Verifying authentication" or some shiz like that came up. After it had been on that page for a minute or two I came to the realization that this was gonna take quite a while, and I still had to set my alarm and go to bed as it was starting to get really late. So I powered my ipod off. Bad mistake. I then went to turn it back on to set my alarm and this popped up on the screen.

I had never seen this screen. So I nervously popped out of bed and ran down stairs wide eyed. I burst into my dads office and showed it to him. We sat there for a while trying all we could to be able to get back into my ipod. Nothing. I started losing hope and the tears started pouring out as I lost hope. I had so many different memories stored on that ipod that I didn't want to lose! My dad told me that he would continue to do what he could to figure it out, and sent me off to bed. Needless to say I cried myself to sleep taking deep breathes in between the sobs. After school the next day my dad informed me that there was no hope and that we were going to have to reset my ipod to factory settings. I readied myself and we did the deed. As I sniffled and sobbed of course. My ipod was connected to an icloud account but the storage had been full since February so it hadn't backed anything up since then. So I still have everything from December to halfway through February. But everything between then to now is lost forever. This includes pictures and videos from concerts and many other things.


Let this also teach us to live in the moment and enjoy things as they come rather than relying on documentation to remember everything for us. The memories you store can be taken away just like that. So live life and leave the electronics away.

One day when I'm old I'll forget about the memories that are gone from my ipod and those times and happenings will be lost forever. So RIP to the memories. May they rest in joy and peace.

Au revoir xx

Busy, Busy, Bee

Who knew Senior year was gonna be such a crazy year?! I certainly should have. Luckily it's all almost over. With cosmo and high school coming to an end there have been all sorts of things due. From portfolios, to research papers my brain is throbbing! Only about 35 days left. In my spare time I've been discovering myself and finding out what kind of person I really want to be, but also developing some bad habits. Lately especially I've been extremely lazy, living off of Netflix, and eating tons of food. I've been meaning to start some sort of fitness routine, but can't find the motivation in all the school crazy. Hopefully things will turn around after graduation.

An exciting date that is quickly nearing is June 3rd. The day I leave for Fiji. I will be there for a total of 17 days. It's going to be such an incredible experience, and will be like nothing I've ever done before. In August I'll also be going to Hawaii with my friends Heather and Rachel, which will be quite the adventure! I'm excited for all the traveling and I'm hoping I can do more within the next couple years.

As for everything that has happened since the last time I posted until now.... I've been to 3 concerts: Demi Lovato(w/ Little Mix and 5H), Foy Vance and another King the Kid show!

I actually met the lovely Foy Vance the night of his show (which ironically was on St. Patricks day), and had a nice chat with him. He's an amazing guy. :)

Here's a pic of Heather and I at the Demi concert, which was an absolute blast :)

Now. KTK and I have become considerably great friends. We hung out a ton the night of the show! After the show I had the opportunity to hang out with David, Ricky, and Jose in their RV and listen to some unreleased music (which was ACE).


After seeing this picture Ricky called us the clique haha

 Y'all really should check out their music on Itunes... you won't be disappointed.

Moving on, life has been pretty crazy. There has been some life changing things happening. I'm adapting and trying new things, and evolving as a person. I'm excited for the future and I hope you'll all stay tuned to experience it all with me. :)

I'm thinking of renovating my blog to match my changing style and personality... so next time you visit it will probably look very different! (unless it has already been changed by the time you've made it to this post.) haha

Au revoir xx
