Merry Mexican Christmas! (Feliz Navidad)

Mexico is amazing. Let me tell you one thing, you cannot do all of it in a day! I promise that I will post pictures, pictures, and pictures once I get home. Mexico is such a great place to be but I must admit I was kind of hoping for a white Christmas! The hotel is very modern and magical at the same time. There are a lot of secret rooms and passages in the hotel that are really cool. I love this particular room that I took pictures of that has blue walls, star shaped lights, and a fountain in the middle. I shouldn’t really call it a room because it is just a place to walk through to get to the different buildings. My mom and I were talking and we think that all the people that are here are creeps. They are from all over the world and are weird. My dad says that he just left a message to my aunt and uncle for when they come to dinner from the restaurant. It will say that their dog was kidnapped in Canada! They are going to freak out when their waiter comes up and gives them the message. I might have already mentioned that I am going to be getting a straightening perm so my hair will always be straight! My mom wants to get extensions because her hair is really short. Not super short like a pixie cut or anything, just short. Like shoulder length.

Have a merry Christmas!

Love Ya.

Best Thing Ever: The Office

It’s all I ever watch on netflix. I can name every last character in this T.V. show! Most importantly, The Office is the funniest t.v. show out there. The boss, Micheal, is kind of an idiot who tries to be friends with his employees. In every episode he ’causes more trouble. He just doesn’t realize that he has to be professional in the work place. Then theres Jim and Pam. Jam. Or Pim. Throughout the entire 7 seasons they have a confusing love thing going on. I don’t wan to give it all away but they have their ups and downs. The last main character is Dwight. Dwight Shrute to be precise. He owns a beet farm and is Jim’s worst enemy. He’s a really weird person but you are going to regret not knowing him when you find yourself being attacked by a bear. He knows all about that stuff. This show doesn’t really have anything to do with fashion but it is very enjoyable!

Chiara and Gaia

Theyoungandthebraless.blogspot.com is the coolest blog you will ever find! It’s simple, but very handy! My cousins, Chiara and Gaia, run the blog and take all their pictures together. They think of it as sort an online catalog because they give you pictures of their clothes and if you like the looks they show you where to buy them. This is a really great blog to check out so please enjoy!

Love Ya.

Fiction: What Happens After

Kate Johnson twirled a lock of her golden hair and pushed her plate of pad thai away an inch. 2 inches, 3inches, 4. “I still don’t understand.” She stammered to her best friend, Taylor. Kate, Peyton, and Reed were all sitting in a japanese restaurant while the girl who they thought was their best friend, Taylor, explained to them why she no longer liked them. “I already told you. I needed to start fresh because of everything we’ve been through. We fought too much and none of us were getting along.” Taylor sipped her watermelon soda. Peyton made a face, Reed rolled her eyes, and Kate just stared at Taylor like she was insane. “I’m going to the bathroom.” Taylor stood and gracefully walked to the bathroom with her long brown hair bouncing up and down. “What is her problem?” Peyton looked after Taylor in disgust. Kate buried her face in her hands and sighed. “She obviously moved on so we should too.” Reed shrugged. “We need to stick together.” Peyton and Kate nodded in agreement. “And the war begins,” Reed muttered under her breath as Taylor sauntered back to the table.

 

 

Updates

Christina wasn’t at school today so I assume that she was sick. I’m very excited for Christmas this year even though it seems as if it rolled around too soon. There are only two more full school days for us before winter break. We get let out at 2:30 on Thursday. Over the break we will be working on our February issue! I’ll post loads of Mexico pictures! Wait, did I mention I’m going to Mexico for Christmas? I’m going with my cousins, aunt, uncle, and parents. My cousins, Chiara and Gaia who are twins, have a really cool fashion blog they made together called theyoungandthebraless.blogspt.com. They have a lot of fun clothing ideas on their blog. Our blog might switch to a system where we have a new post every single day at a specific time. For example, we could still have a new theme for each month but at, let’s say 3:45 pm, we would have a new post about something. Maybe a DIY or a book review but either way it will be fun. March is going to be movie month! We will be reviewing the classics, giving you tips on movie snacks, and creating a guide for what to wear to the movies or for just lounging around your home.

Love Ya.

Accomplishments

Let me be honest, I have tried to start at least 10 blogs before this one and none of them have been successful. They always end up being forgotten. This one, though, is very important to me. I’m so excited to be running this blog (even with the lack of viewers/followers) because in the end it isn’t about viewers. It’s about having fun! Which is exactly what I’m doing! Thanks to all the people who have read this blog. Christmas came too fast this year. Doesn’t feel jolly to me! Plus there is 0% snow on the ground! So uncool, mother nature!

Happy Holidays!

Contacts: In your eyes and on your phone

I just got back from my second try at contacts and I can officially say that I touched my own eyeball. It’s so weird. Not as squishy as you think. I realized that I hardly use my phone and I need more contacts. I need them in my eyes and on my phone! I didn’t get into dance troop. I don’t really care, though. It’s not like it’s the Joffrey or anything. I’m so sad that I have to wait an extra month for the next teen vogue. I’m hopefully going christmas shopping tomorrow and maybe we can finally do the photo shoot. I have all the looks planned out and everything the only thing I need is a little time. I was thinking we could make little iMovies for some photo shoots. Like we could have color themed photo shoots but catch them on camera. Yellow, red, green, maroon. Also, color themed parties! Purple, pink, silver, orange. (Not that those colors would look good together!) My dress today was a mid thigh length dress in black with white polka dots and white bows for the pattern. It was a little too childish for me, so I rolled up the sleeves a bit to reveal the stripes on the inside and threw on a brown belt from abercrombie so it looked pretty good. I don’t know where the dress is from, though, hand-me-downs. Lately I’ve been trying to make the titles of my posts more interesting so people will be more interested in reading them. Not exactly working. I figured out what the themes will be for February, March, and April. This month’s theme is a new beginning. It’s a new year! (Almost!) I don’t really have a resolution yet but I will be spending New Years and Christmas in MEXICO!

Love Ya.

PS: Do my viewers have anything they want to see in the mag?

PPS: I want a macaroon.

 

Oh Jamba Juice!

It was a day. I can’t say it was a great day because I would be lying. So yes, it was a day. Science test, math test review, social studies test review, and then to pull the day together my dad brought me a slushy/smoothie thing from Jamba Juice. It was the average day for me! And tomorrow is going to be an awful day for so many reasons. Math test, social studies test, and worst of all no Jamba Juice to wrap up the day! The only thing I’m looking forward to tomorrow is dance troop auditions. I didn’t get in last year but that was before I was taught to learn a dance combination  in less than 3 minutes. No one at my school realizes what their going up against. They haven’t seen me dance yet. Out of all of the girls there, I go to the best school and I take dance seriously. I’m so excited for it anyway! I made a general in and out list because I was bored. And here it is!

Jamba Juice                                                                                                           Starbucks (Still love it!)

Dance Troop                                                                                                                    Not getting into it

Math and Social Studies Tests                                                                                              Science Test
