TGIF: It’s Back & Has A Theme!

Yay!  TGIF is actually finally back!!  Yipee!  I finally figured out what to do with this series.  I ended TGIF I think right before last summer because I was in summer vacay, so didn’t really need to say ‘TGIF”, and I felt like there was no theme to the series.  I would just write whatever I wanted.  With my little bit of OCD, I didn’t like how Friday’s special posts I could do any day because they weren’t themed.  But now, they are!

I feel like I have sort of been lacking the whole ‘my life’ part of my blog lately, so I am going to have TGIF be pictures from my week!  It’ll be sort of like a Liv’s Life, but just mainly pictures, and not all of this writing that tends to bore people!  Every week I will be taking pictures, and then on Friday, I will upload them in a post!  The pictures will all be from my phone, so the quality won’t be great, but since my phone is the easiest and most convenient way to take pictures for me, the pictures will be more ‘in the moment’!  Yepppp…

Oh, and I feel like having Mondays be Motivational Monday, and Friday be TGIF, it will kind of put me back on the schedule of posting!  Since I am in high school, I do have lots of homework to do, so I am not guaranteeing that these two posts will be up on their day, every week, but they should be for the most part!  And then of course I’ll have my DIYs, fashion, and beauty posts all other days whenever I get a chance to post!  Anyways, here’s this week’s pictures!

OMG….review coming soon!

 

Sneak peek to my DIY post coming up!

 

And lastly, a cute little kitty to brighten your day!

 

I hope you enjoyed seeing a little peek into my week!  Let me know if you like this TGIF series!  Thanks for reading!  Talk to you guys soon.  Have a good one!

TGIF: Canada Day DIYs 2012!

Hey guys!  Happy Friday!  So everywhere on CraftGawker, FoodGawker, and Pinterest I’ve been seeing tons and tons of 4th of July treats, so hey, I’m going to do a Canada Day treats/DIYs!  I haven’t seen one post about Canada day, so I’m going to do one!  I am thinking about doing a Canada Day vlog…would you guys like that!?  I am going to a park with my friends on Sunday, and there’s rides there, and fireworks and stuff, so yeah, I think I’m going to vlog!  Anyways, onto some treats and stuff!

TGIF: What’s On My iPhone!?

Hey guys!  Happy Friday!  Sorry I’ve been a little MIA this week, it’s been crazy and I am going to Quebec next week, and my cat is at the vet currently with some issues with her stomach…anyways, she’s going to be OK, but that’s why I’ve been not posting that much!  I am hoping to pre-write a couple of posts before I leave so that I can easily publish them when I’m away!  Anyways, I just wanted to share What’s On My iPhone!  I will be doing a What’s On My iPad sometime soon (maybe as a post next week), but it would take up way too much time right now!

So, on my phone I have only two pages!  I know that may seem crazy, but because I have an iPad, I have an overload of apps on it, and then on my phone I just narrow it down completely!  I have two icons that have lots of apps in them, and they’re just the ones that I don’t use much, and then I have the page that comes with the phone, and another page that I fill with all of my favourite apps.

In the “randoms” categories:

Contacts
Calculator
Compass
Voice Memos
Find iPhone
Find Friends
TuneIn Radio
iMovie
i.TV
Bloglovin
IMDb
Reminders
Currency
Stocks
Scotiabank
VEVO
Sephora
Game Center
Weather
Yellow Pages

And then my first page just has all the apps that come with the phone.  My bottom bar with the four apps has Phone, Instagram, PicCal, and Messages.

Then, for my favourite page:

WordPress (of course ;) )
Pinterest (another shocker)
craftgawker (another obsession)
The Weather Network
StumbleUpon
Wunderlist
PicFrame
Facebook
Twitter
foodgawker
Camera (facebook) (haven’t tried this yet, how do you guys like it?)
Pages
Music
Bump
PhotoStudio (new fav!)
Night Sky

So, that’s what’s on my iPhone!  Let me know your app suggestions in a comment!!  Have a great weekend!

TGIF: 2 Big Favourites & DIY J. Crew Necklaces!

Hey guys!  Happy Friday!

I’ve been a little obsessive with jewelry and accessories lately.  I have been searching all over looking for DIYs on things, and have came across lots of J. Crew jewelry…but it’s kind of pricey.  But, I found two DIYs on their necklaces, and wanted to share them!  $40 vs. $3

$150 vs. $20

*links for tutorials are in pictures*

So, now onto my favourites!

This week I have been loving two things a lot!  The first one is Taylor Swift, surprise, surprise.  I think my new all time favourite song is Forever and Always (Piano Version).  It is amazing!  My second big favourite is Pretty Little Liars.  OMG.  Season three premiered Tuesday, and it’s Friday and I haven’t stopped thinking about it.  I have read about half of the books, but I am not much of a reader, so I switched over to the show, and OMG SO GOOD.  I cannot wait until next Tuesday.  I don’t think I have ever liked a TV show so much.  Haha, you can watch it here if you missed it.  I am about to watch it for the third time right now.  I don’t really have any more favourites…I am also trying to save some for my monthly favourites…but I honestly couldn’t wait!  I love these two sooooo much!

Let me know if you like Pretty Little Liars in a comment!  Talk to you soon!

TGIF: DIY Memory & Quote Jars

Hey everyone!  It’s June, and it’s the weekend!  YAY!

This week I have been working on my Summer Bucket List quite a bit, and I wanted to share an idea of something that is on my SBL.  Two of the things that are on my bucket list are “Make a memory jar” and “Make a quote jar”.  I came up with this idea a little while ago because I was thinking about my life board.  I knew I was going to be changing out things on my life board constantly, and wanted a place to save everything that was not being used on my board.  So, I came up with the idea of putting all of the quotes in a jar, and having it in my room.  Then, I came up with the idea of having a favourite memory jar, and just a plain old quote jar.

Basically, my idea is to take little slips of paper, and fill one jar with different quotes that I like, and another with amazing memories.  This way, whenever I am bored or in a non-happy mood, then I can read my favourite quotes and favourite memories to kind of cheer me up.

I am going to be making them hopefully soon (I know I had them on my SBL, but I just can’t wait!!), and I will post about them soon to show you more of what I am thinking of.  I think it’s a great project for the weekend, and they make cute decorations too!  If you get creative with them, you can end up making great little pieces!  They are also great as gifts, if you have a friend that you have a lot of memories with, or if you know that they would appreciate some quotes!  I’d totally recommend it!  You guys know I love little things like this!  Oh, and if you have any other suggestions of what else to put in jars that are similar to this, let me know!  I would LOVE to make more of these!

Talk to you in a few!  Bye guys.  Have a good one.

TGIF: My Room, Sam Edelman, & Jewelry

HAPPY FRIDAY!!

So this week has been a pretty hectic, but great week.  I have been planning a lot of things to do, and have been getting really excited for some things!  I am hoping that I will upload the rest of the videos this weekend (cross your fingers!!) too.  I just wanted to share some things that I have been doing and finding this week.

The first thing that I wanted to talk about is my room!  I am going to be redoing my room this summer, and I promise I’ll show you guys what it looks like!  It is going to be light mint, turquoise, black, and white.  I am really excited to tell you guys about it!  I will mention little things in different posts coming up soon!

Another thing I wanted to tell you guys about is my grad shoes!  I got my grad shoes a few weeks ago, and they just didn’t fit properly, so I went back and got my new pair!  I will instagram a picture tomorrow!  Be sure to check out my instagram if you like lots of pictures of my life and outfit of the days!  I also have my old shoes posted on there.  My new shoes are also by Sam Edelman, and I love them!  The old ones were the Beatrix flats, and I loved them, but having arthritis didn’t really go well.

OK, one of my last things I wanted to talk about it jewelry!  I have been loving making bracelets, and looking at jewelry online, so I am just going to tell you about some of the things that I’ve found lately.  The first website I wanted to mention is Bauble Bar.  I am currently ordering this on there.  I am going to be doing a whole review on there once I get it in the mail!  I LOVE Bauble Bar!  Totally check it out if you are looking for some nice, affordable jewelry.  I have also been checking out some jewelry on Pinterest, and have been finding lots of different pieces that I love!  You can check out my Jewelry board here.  I have also been finding lots of different ways to make stackable bracelets!  I will do a few more tutorials soon.

Haha, before I go, I wanted to ask you guys for a little help.  I have been having this issue with my eyes the past few days where I am getting burning in my eyes, and it feels like they have oil in them, so they get blurry.  I get it about two or three times a day, and it’s been really hot outside.  It’s never happened before, except for when I get oil in my eyes.  Do any of you know anything about this, and why it’s happening?  My guess is just the heat.  Anyways, I will talk to you soon!  Have a great weekend.

Let me know what your favourite shoes are in a comment!!
