2010!

Image credit: Fiftymm99 ♥
Holy gosh! Another year has passed already! I think I'm fairly impressed with the amount of growth that happened for me during this past year. I'm definitely a different person that I was at the same time last year. My style has evolved, my taste in music has changed.... well actually, I think almost everything has changed! I'd have to say that living on my own on that small lovely island was a huge period of growth for me. I learned a lot about myself and other people. It was probably the best summer I've had, yet! I'm excited for the rest of my summers though, too.
So, my lovelies, what are your plans for this coming year? The start of a new decade, wow! My plans are...
  • To finish my college prep so I can go to university. My boyfriend and I have plans to move to New Zealand in this coming winter so I can go to the University of Christchurch! How exciting is that?
  • To save up some money! I just found out that my hours have been cut at my current job and I get a whopping 3 hours a week of work. Lame. I need more income than that if I want to travel everywhere!
  • To go completely vegetarian. I've been cutting out a lot of meat and crap from my diet, but I still have a long way to go. One of my boyfriends' roommates is vegan, and she's a huge inspiration to me.
  • To focus on more positivity. I think I'm going to make an appointment with someone and try to figure out why I'm so down all the time... but in the meantime, I'm sure thinking about happy things would be a good start.
  • To learn how to drive! I have had a car for a year and a half and it's just disintegrating in my shed. I really need to practice driving and get over my anxiety of driving! Plus, if I get my Novice driver's license (able to drive by myself or with one passenger that's not family), I would be able to drive in New Zealand for a year! And that would be really handy!
So that's all I can think of right now. What about you? I'd love to hear from you! ♥ ♥ ♥

Bleh.

Hey everyone, sorry for the lack of interesting material here on my blog! I've been feeling super down for the past while. Like, to the point where nothing seems to make me happy. I'm constantly tired, sore and irritable, and it's really causing a strain on all of my relationships. I really don't know what to doooo... So is my blog going on hiatus? Probably not. I'm just giving you a heads-up. Lovelovelove! ♥

Merry Christmas!

Hey all, merry Christmas! Hope you got everything your little hearts desired. I sure did! I got a whopping three different hoodies, which is awesome because I am totally a hoodie addict. And chocolate. Oh, there was much chocolate to be had. Until I ate it all. Anyways, I really should be helping prepare dinner... I just snuck away to "tidy my room," hehe! Love!

ps. AH! While it`s still applicable! From my friend Shae`s facebook:

lalalalove music!

   

     So I said like, forever ago that I would make a post on my love for grunge music. Finally, that time is here! It just took so long because you know, I'm a lazy butt. Oh well!
     I guess by now you probably have an idea that I love hip-hop. The way the rappers can put words together so poetically absolutely blows my mind. And really now, I love all types of music! But sometimes I crave something a bit more raw- and that craving is satisfied by my beloved grunge music (and all of its relatives!) I know I was just being born during its heyday, but it still provides a nostalgia to me for a better time, when musicians wrote what they felt, not just what would sell records. The heartfelt singing and dirty guitar riffs... aah. I love being home alone so I can jump around the house, headbanging and singing along. It's such a liberating feeling! Plus, I totally love the fashions from that era. It totally focused on comfort and practicality, which is something I can vouch for. Nothing beats snuggling up in a warm flannel shirt, some long johns, well-worn pants and combat boots.
     Anyways, I just wanted to share some of my favorite songs in this genre. Maybe you can try jumping around your house and singing along too!
Yeah! I hope you enjoy it all!
PS. My boyfriend looks like the reincarnation of Layne Staley of Alice In Chains fame. Coincidence? Perhaps. 

 
Haha see? Crazy. ♥ ♥ ♥
Have a wonderful day, lovelies!

Holiday Wishlist!

Hey everybody, happy holidays! I love this time of year because I absolutely adore giving gifts. So far I've got my mom an awesome present (I won't say just in case she reads this!), my boyfriend like, a whole new wardrobe, and my BFF... well, I've gotten her a whole bunch of rad stuff. Giving presents is so fun! Anyways, since tomorrow's my birthday and Christmas is around the corner, I've decided to share my wish list with you! Joy!

-Anything from Sock Dreams. Yumm. Really cozy tall socks? Super cute thigh-highs? Awe yeah!


-A Year In Yes. I love calendars. This might possibly be the best one in existance! I want to order a few and give them to my friends.

-These Skingraft Garter Bags. What would I put in them? Where would I wear them? Who gives a frack. I wannnnnt them. (Though they're sold out, boo!) And a pockety-belt, too.

-A funky camera. I love taking pictures, and getting the film developed is so suspenseful... eeeh. Absolutely wonderful!


Oh! I almost forgot! Avril Lavigne's Black Star Perfume! Kay, so maybe I'm a sucker for the advertising. But seriously, it smells so good! I adore my Gwen Stefani perfume, but it's really pungent and makes me smell like I've bathed in tanning oil. Black Star is much more subtle and it smells amazing!  Plus, it's not overly pricey. Loooove.
Yeah! Awesome! What do you want this year? ♥
