Countdown To Christmas: Holly Jolly Holiday TAG (1&2)

Hello, hello!  Merry Christmas!  So today I have a post going up, and tomorrow I’ve got a post coming up for you guys, as a little thanks to you and Christmas present I guess!  Right now, because it’s late, I’ve just got a tag (well, actually two tags in one!).  Here we go!

 

1. Favorite Christmas Movie? Well I’ve got quite a few, but I am just going to say all three Santa Clauss, and Home Alone 1 &2.
2. Are you on the Naughty list or the Nice list? I hope the nice list!
3. Show us an embarrassing Christmas Card photo! (WE KNOW YOU HAVE ONE OK) I have actually never taken a Christmas card picture!  Is that weird?!  In Christmas cards, my mom always just puts my school pictures/recent pictures of me in them.  This year I think we have a picture of us in Europe.
4. Have you ever had a White Christmas? Of course!  I don’t think we will this year though.  I think this will be my first green Christmas.  We are supposed to have a white boxing day though :(
5. Where do you usually spend your holiday? Well, we either have Christmas at one of my two Aunts’ houses, or here.  This year I am going to one of my Aunt’s houses!
6. Play or Sing your favorite Christmas Song! Well I can’t really play it…but I think my two favourites are All I Want For Christmas is You, and Wonderful Christmas Time.
7. Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve? I usually open one, but this year I don’t have too many presents (I went for quality over quantity), so I’ve decided I don’t want to open any.
8. Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?  Yes!  Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen!  And Rudolph, I guess.
9. What holiday tradition are you looking forward to most this year?  Well, it’s the 23rd, so the Christmas season is almost over, but I really just like wrapping presents!
10. Is your Christmas tree real or fake? Fake
11. Hands down, what’s your all-time favorite holiday food and holiday sweet treat? Well it’s sort of a tradition that every year we get Turtles chocolates a few days before Christmas, so probably them!
12. Be Honest: do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better? I of course love receiving them, but I LOVE shopping for other peoples’ gifts and giving them out!
13. Show us your tackiest Christmas attire (ex: Ugly Sweater) I honestly don’t have one.  This year I planned on making one, but never got around to doing it.  I’m sure I will next year!
14. What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season? I can’t imagine being somewhere else than home!  I would love to go to New York the week before Christmas, but never on Christmas.
15. Does your family have a special holiday recipe you like to help make? Nope, unfortunately!
16. Are you a pro-present wrapper, or do you fail miserably? Haha, well this year I finally found out a little trick on how to wrap them, so I guess this year I’m pretty good at it!  I don’t go overboard though, it’s just to get all ripped off anyways!
17. Most memorable Holiday moment? All I can really think of is like Christmas mornings.  I don’t have a very good memory, so I don’t remember every Christmas moment, but I remember last year’s…I think!  Sorry this is kind of a boring answer, but I don’t really remember!  I do remember one year that my parents hid a Hilary Duff pink lamp behind the couch and then pointed it out after presents…haha does that count?  I don’t have any brothers or sisters, so it’s not too exciting.
18. Do you make New Years Resolutions? Do you stick to them? I never have because it’s not really big where I live, but I’m going to this year!  I am going to make like a Bucket List/Resolutions in one.  Would you like to see it when I’m done!?
19. What makes the Holidays special for you? Being with my family!  This year my Grandma isn’t coming for Christmas eve so it’s just my parents and I, but on Christmas afternoon I get to see all my family and it’s great!

OK, now onto the second edition:1. Do you start your Christmas shopping on Black Friday or wait until the last minute? We don’t have black friday in Canada (really), but I am not a late shopper usually.

2. If you could be in any Christmas movie what would it be? Haha, I’m not too sure!  Maybe I’d want to be Ashley Benson in Christmas Cupid because I loved her character, and I love her.
3. Which do you like better: Christmas Eve or Christmas Day? Both!  I can’t pick one!  Usually Christmas Eve though!
4. When does your family put up your Christmas tree and who decorates it? We put them up usually mid November or early December.
5. White lights or colored lights? I used to love coloured lights, but now to be honest I just prefer white!  They go with everything and they are classy looking.  But, I like the old fashioned coloured lights.  Now the modern ones are ugly!  They are dark blue, orange, red and green, and I like the pink, orange, medium blue, and green.  You’ll see what I’m talking about in tomorrow’s post!
6. Are you guilty of peeking at your presents or do you like the surprise?  I don’t think I’ve ever peeked!  I totally regret it if I ever have!
7. Would you rather live in a gingerbread house or in Santa’s Workshop? Santa’s workshop, hands down.
8. Tell us your Christmas Eve traditions! Well, to be honest, we just will watch like a Christmas movie, and I usually open a present.  Nothing special!
9. What tops your tree? Usually a star!
10. Can you name the 12 days of Christmas? I have seen so many different versions of how numbers 8-12 are, but I know there’s a partridge in a pear tree, two turtle doves, three french hens, four calling birds, five golden rings, six geese-a-laying, seven swans a swimming, eight maids a milking, nine ladies dancing, ten lourds a leaping, eleven pipers piping, and I totally forgot twelve.  Let me check!  Oh, lourds a leaping!
11. Have you ever gone Christmas caroling? Nope
12. Do you countdown to Christmas? If so, how many days are left? Yes!  Haha ONE DAY!
13. What are some foods and treats you can count on having every holiday season? CHOCOLATE!!
14. How has Christmas kept its magic for you as you’ve grown older? Well I’m not like old or anything, but I guess I just really try to do everything that you do in the holiday season, like wrapping presents, and just keeping my mind focused on Christmas.

 

So, that’s it!  Thanks for reading!  I am really tired now, so I’m going to go!  Tomorrow I will have a special little present post for you!  Talk to you soon!  Merry Christmas Eve Eve & Happy Holidays!

ONE MORE DAY!!!

Fall Fashion 2012 #2- Polyvore + The Pinterest Obsession

Hey guys!  How are you!?  I really excited because I have lots and lots and lots of upcoming posts for you!  I am currently re-doing my room, so I will be showing you bits and pieces including my tips and tricks.  Also, back to school and fall are coming up, and fall is my favourite time for fashion and beauty, so you will see lots of posts for that too!  I also have to get around to finishing off my SBL posts too…I basically FAILED hard on my SBL.  Also, I just wanted to say that I’m really happy with all of my categories now!  They are all cleared out, and they’re a little more organized and less confusing.  Anyways, that’s not the point of this post!  I have another Polyvore set for you!  I am going to be just doing these fall and winter fashion posts very quickly, just showing you either sets I make on polyvore, pictures I see, or things I see on Pinterest.  By the way, if you don’t know what Polyvore is, I have a mini review on it here!  I love to make sets on there, especially for fall and winter, along with tons of other people on Pinterest!  Here’s the picture and then I will get into Pinterest.

 

For some reason, I get so, so OCD on Polyvore, and always end up making like half of my posts with items that I own or will own.  For example, I own that Longchamp bag, I am saving for that exact Wildfox Baggy Beach Jumper, I’m getting those exact ALDO riding boots for my birthday, I’m getting those Tiffany studs for my birthday, and OPI Ink. is my favourite nail polish for fall…haha I am so strange.  Anyways, I can guarantee you that the pic above will be what I am wearing 90% of the time in the fall and winter.  Like I said in my last fall fashion post, I will show you guys a pic of this actually on me when I get all of the things!  A link to my Polyvore will be at the bottom if you’re interested!

 

OK, now I just wanted to talk about my Pinterest obsession right now…ohmygoodness.  I am seriously dangerously addicted to Pinterest.  I just love looking at pictures.  Right now everyone is repinning lots of pictures of fall fashion, which if you didn’t read the above, I love fall fashion!  I am in heaven.  I’m not too sure if any of you follow me on there, but holy smokes I must be driving all of my followers CRAZY with all of my pictures.  I can’t stop!  And now there’s a Pinterest app for iPad, and I’ve been on it even more because of that.  My obsession never really stopped with Pinterest, it has just highly increased the past couple of days.  Guys, if you don’t have a Pinterest, please make one!  If you tell me your username, I’ll check out your pins and boards!  My link will be in the bottom as always!

I hope you guys enjoyed!  Thanks for reading!  I just might have another post up today…I’m kind of in the blogging mood right now…but I’m sorry if I don’t!  I am going to Rib Fest tomorrow at a local park with a bunch of friends, but hopefully I’ll have a post up tomorrow too!  Talk to you soon!

PLL: My Thoughts #2- S3 Episodes 6, 7, & 8

Hello!  Happy Wednesday!  So I did my first PLL post almost two months ago, and have had so many other posts with SOFC that I haven’t gotten around to doing another one!  Haha, I am going to be talking about the last few episodes that I haven’t talked about, mainly six, seven, and eight.

If you’d like to read my previous post, and have a little recap of everything I’ve already talked about, click here!

So episode eight aired last night, and oh my goodness is it ever getting good!  I personally really like the whole Ali and A part of the series, and I feel like at the beginning of Season Three they sort of ignored it, but oh my goodness everything with the algorithms and everything!  YAY!  I am so excited to see what is going on next Tuesday!

I am curious about what the password was to get onto Maya’s site.  I’m pretty sure they didn’t say, or maybe they didn’t even use a password…but I don’t know…maybe it could of been something important.  Also, why does Mona know this stuff!?  Obviously somebody is visiting her and telling her all of these things…and what’s with the tape recorder!?  I think Caleb might be on the A team too because they show somebody making Mona’s visiting status change, and he’s good with computers,  and then he jumped at the fact about helping the girls with Maya’s password…I don’t know.  And Nate is up to something!  I haven’t really thought about what yet, but he is TOTALLY sneaking around.

Anyways, I will be back with another PLL post in a couple of weeks!  I have another post planned instead of SOFC today, but like I said in another post, I will be having a couple packing and travelling SOFC posts up next week, so there I am making up for missing one today!  I have a Monthly Survey and maybe even my favourites coming today…yeah!  Talk to you guys soon!  Thanks for reading!  If you have any comments on PLL, totally let me know!  Bye!

SOFC W2: Summer DIYs That Will Come In Handy #1- Soothing Sunburns

Hey guys!  Happy Monday!  I’ve found a new theme for this week!  I have three themes for future weeks planned, but for now I am still brainstorming, so please, please, let me know if you have any ideas for themes!

This week’s theme is: Summer DIYs that will come in handy

For today’s post, I found a really good idea, and thought it would be great for this week’s theme!  The idea is to freeze aloe vera mixed with a bit of water.  You mix the two, and then put them into an ice cube tray, and then freeze them in the freezer.  This will help soothe your sunburns, if you happen to get one.  Of course I’m a redhead, so I’m sure I will be trying this!  Also, it is obviously important to protect your skin for the summer, especially if you are spending a full day outside.  Here are some tips and tricks to protect against sunburns.  

Anyways, I will talk to you guys soon!  Like I said, let me know if you have any suggestions for next week’s theme!
