Celebrity Style: Blair Waldorf’s Coats

One thing that I noticed while I was watching Gossip Girl…the amazing fashion!  I mentioned this in my GG post, and I am going to be doing a few Celeb Style posts on it!  For the first instalment  I have found four of Blair’s coats, and found either the exact ones, or very close matches.  I will probably do one of these for Serena too, so stay tuned for that!

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!!!

Countdown To Christmas: Simple & Easy Gift Ideas For Girls/Women

Hey guys!  So this post is apparently cursed.  First, the picture wouldn’t insert, and then when I finally wrote it with a link to the picture, when it was all ready, I hit publish, and it said “are you sure you want to do this?” and now it’s not here.  So in other words, I’m re-writing this.  And no, I didn’t move it to trash.  GRRRRRRR….I spent so much time!  Haha, well anyways, it’s going to be not as good as the original because I just spent the past half hour working on it, and now it’s gone.  That’s what you get for not saving it!  But at least now the picture I want is in it!  Haha.  So because Christmas is approaching, you may have some people that are a little hard to buy for, so I thought I would give you some ideas.  I am aware that these are sort of on the more beauty&fashion side, but I few bonus ideas at the bottom!

8 Days & 1  1/2 Hours Until Christmas!!

 
BONUS:
-slippers
-bakeware/cookware
-candles (and candle holders)
-books/magazines
-spa/bath sets
-movies
-iTunes gift cards
Talk to you guys soon!  I’m going to save this before I hit publish and see what happens.  Goodness.
Happy Holidays!

Countdown To Christmas: Winterlicious TAG!

Hello everyone!  I hope you’re having a great day!  Today I’m coming to you with a really exciting mini-series….a Christmas mini series!  If you can’t tell by the title, I am doing a mini series called “Countdown To Christmas”!  It is not going to be every single one of my posts for the next while, but the majority of them!  This is where I am going to post every single Christmas-related post for 2012.    Today I am going to be doing the winterlicious tag, and if you’d like to do this, I’d love to see your answers in a comment!

27 Days, 5 Hours, 20 Minutes until Christmas

 

 

1) Favorite Winter Nail Polish?   I have four!  Haha, I am planning on doing a whole winter nail polish favourites post, so I am just going to share one!  It is Essie’s Forever Yummy.  A perfect holiday/fall red!  
2) Favorite Winter lip product?  My favourite winter lip product is Revlon’s lip butter in Red Velvet.  I’m kind of in a red faze right now (I’m not sure if it’s Taylor Swift doing this to me or what…) but I love this colour!  I’ve been wearing it with a bit of mascara and it is so nice in the mornings!  I seriously save so much time because I am wearing such a bright colour.  I feel like this colour isn’t so dramatic, because it really mixes with my natural lip colour and makes it look very natural, and almost like a stain.  I think I might pick up a true, bright, T. Swift red for the holidays though, this one is nice, but I’d like to have two types of red!
3) Most worn Winter clothing piece?  Big, cozy knit sweaters!  I have been loving scarves so much lately, so I just like plain, big sweaters that keep me warm so that I can put a scarf over them.  My school hasn’t turned on the heat yet (as far as I know!) and I have only been able to wear a few things in my wardrobe because it is too cold to not wear a thick sweater!
4) Most worn Winter accessory?  SCARVES!  Haha, if you haven’t noticed, I love them!  I also really love the Peter Pan collar that I made!  You can see it here!
5) Favorite winter scent/candle?  Well, I’ve told you before that I really can’t wear scents, and I don’t really fancy candles, BUT, I do actually have a scent from B&BW that I love!  It’s from their holiday collection, and it’s called Twisted Peppermint.  My two favourite scents are peppermint, and cinnamon, so this is perfect!  I still can’t wear it everyday because of my sinus, but I still like it!
6) Favorite Winter beverage?  Hot chocolate!  It’s too bad though, because almost every time I drink it, it gives me a headache!  Haha, I really don’t know why…is it the heat from it!?  I like it the most with a bit of cinnamon in it!  I am going to get candy canes the next time we go grocery shopping because I want to see how they are crushed up in it!
7) All time favorite Christmas/Holiday movie?  Any of them!  But the ones that stick out the most are Fred Claus, and all three Santa Clauses.
8) Favorite Christmas/Holiday song?  I really like just the classic ones, but I love All I Want For Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey!…oh and my all time favourite is probably Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree.
9) Favorite Holiday food/treat?   Anything chocolate….as always.  I like the peppermint bark that I made last year!  I’ve made it three times in total, and actually did a post on it last year..haha!  It is a pretty bad post…maybe I’ll remake it this year…!  I actually have a batch of it going right now!  It tastes JUST like Aero Chocolate Peppermint chocolate bars!  Here’s the link to the OLD post.
10) What is your favorite Christmas Decoration this year?  I will show you guys all of the decor in my house as Christmas gets closer…so you’ll see it then!  But I really love this little section downstairs, and my little tree in my room!
11) What’s at the top of your Christmas list?  Well, unfortunately, I know what I’m getting…but I’ll do a whole post on that too!  Coming soon….
12) What are your plans for the holidays this year?  We are going to my Aunt’s!  There’s going to be about ten of us, and we just go in the afternoon on Christmas day.  It’ll be just the three of us for Christmas eve, and then Christmas morning we get to open all of the presents under the tree, and then we go to my Aunt’s and I get to open up even more presents!  Haha.

Thanks for reading!  If you have anything at all you’d like to ask me/say to me, leave it in a comment below!

Are you guys excited!!!?

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!

My current phone background!

 

My art project! I’m so proud! Haha, this is like the most artistic thing I’ve ever accomplished!

 

Yes, I bought Christmas lights for my room! Haha

 

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!
