Liv’s Life: Goodbye 2012 TAG!

Hello everyone!  So I just recently did a post on “what 2012 has taught me”, and I have decided to do a little Q&A session about the new year.  If you’ve read that post, you’d know that this year has been pretty hard for me, and I want to make 2013 much better.  I have chosen a series of random questions about 2012 to answer.  Here we go!

1. What did you do in 2012 that you’ve never done before?  Well, I went to Quebec for about five days away from my parents!  I have been away from my dad before, but never my mom.

2. What would you like to have in 2013 that you lacked in 2012?  A fearless and confident attitude.

3. Name some highlights of the past year.  Well, Paris, Germany, Quebec City, starting high school.

4. What are your goals of 2013?  I am going to do a whole bucket list/resolutions post coming up soon!

5. Favourite fashion item of 2012? Well, I guess I can’t count anything that I’ve gotten for Christmas (darn!), but I will have to say my feather scarf that I got in Germany.  I have worn that thing so, so much!

6. Favourite beauty item of 2012? Nail polish!  For spring & summer it is any mint/ tiffany blue colour, and for winter or fall it is any dark blue or purple.

7. Most loved songs of 2012? Of course my Taylor Swift….Begin Again, All Too Well, Dear John, Last Kiss, The Moment I Knew, and Drop of Jupiter by Train!  (:

8. What are two songs that will remind you of 2012 forever?  We Are Young and Call Me Maybe.

9. What would of made this year better?  If I had more opportunities to do things.

10. Favourite TV show of 2012?  Pretty Little Liars

11. What did you do (/are doing) that you are proud of?  Not letting anybody change my beliefs or how I am.  In high school everyone is the same and are trying to be like everyone else, and I’m not buying it.

12. What did you do on your birthday?  Well, I went to school.  And to a pep rally.  Yep.  Wasn’t a very happy time.

13.  What kept you sane? Youtube,  my blog, and QUOTES

14. Who was you biggest role model?  Missglamorazzi/thegridmonster on YT (and now Zoella too!)

15. What was one thing you were obsessed with this year?  Pinterest!  And now tumblr!

16. What is a life lesson you learned?  Things are going to go wrong, and people are stupid, but you can’t do anything about it and you just have to accept it.

17. Favourite moment?  Paris!

18. What is the most nostalgic song of 2012? Enchanted by Taylor Swift.

19. What medical things happened to you this year?  My spasm in my neck…arthritis & headache stuff.

20. Favourite month of the year?  December, June, April

21. Favourite movie you saw?  Uhhmmm….I really liked Friends With Benefits.  I love Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake!

22. Worst thing that happened to you?  Drifting apart from old friends & losing my best friend.

23. If you could go back and change anything, what would it be?  Well, I hard a hard time answering this..but I’d say maybe stop worrying in Paris…I’m not sure.  Maybe just like enjoy my trip more…I of course enjoyed it, but I wish I could stop being stressed.  I’m not too sure.

So, that’s it!  Thanks for reading.  If you’d like to answer these questions, leave them in a comment below!  I’ll have my resolutions up soon, along with a post about my collage in my room, and a “what I got for Christmas 2012” if you’re interested.  Talk to you soon.  Have a great night!

Liv’s Life: What 2012 Has Taught Me

2012 is almost over, and this has been the worst, most craziest year of my life, I’m so sad to say.  It has probably been the most eventful year of my life too.  I had ups, and many downs.  This year I went to Paris and Germany!  I went to Quebec, and I finished a big chapter of my life-graduating grade 8.  I had been at that school from K-8, and I started high school.  This year I have also found my love for quotes.  My love for beauty and fashion grew larger and I changed my room up.  I became more crafty and blog-savvy, and got tested in many ways.  I have many more sides of me now that I never knew existed.

During the process of starting high school, I lost a lot of friends.  And when I say a lot, I mean all but one.  And even that one isn’t stable.  Don’t get me started.  High school made us never see each other.  Instead of looking back on all of the amazing things I did in my life, I look back at them now, and I’m so upset because I miss them.  Looking at pictures of my trips makes me so sad.  I want to go back.

When I lost all of my friends and I started to feel this way, I came across “people change, memories don’t”.  Even though time and people change, nobody can take away how happy I was during those events and little moments.

I have found many positive quotes that have helped me get through everything.  Like “be the person you want to meet”, or “I like people who smile while it’s raining”, or “she leaves a little sparkle wherever she goes”.  “Be in love with you life.  Every detail of it.”

The one thing that has gotten me through the most this year has been a little lesson that my over thinking has brought to me.  “What can I possibly do about it?”.  When something bad happens to me, 99% of the time, it isn’t my fault.  What can I do about it?  NOTHING but recover.  “Life goes on”, “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”.

So that’s a little sum up of my life in 2012.  I am NOT depressed or suicidal, I’m just at a bit of a confused stage right now, and I’m trying to figure things out.  “The best is yet to come.”

Happy One Year & Thank You

Hey guys!  One year ago today I made this blog….woah!  I have changed so much since then, and I appreciate every one of you for just supporting me and following me!  I always try to do exciting posts and it doesn’t always work out that way…I feel like I am always putting out dates for things, and not following through.  Thank you for sticking through that!  I have enjoyed this so much!  It started out with just being a blog about myself, but then morphed into crafts, beauty, fashion, and my life.  My grade seven english teacher actually suggested that I should start a blog, so huge thanks to her!  I love writing, especially things that I’m interested in at the moment.  I feel like I am a positive person because I remind myself of exciting things, and writing these posts gets me so happy just thinking about certain topics, like Christmas!!  Haha, anyways, if you guys have ANYTHING at all that you would like me do write about, please let me know!  I also appreciate every one of you for the past little bit.  I haven’t been posting nearly as much as in the summer time, obviously because I’m at school all day and have homework and other things to do.

SO.  Thank you, thank you, thank you, for sticking with my extremely exaggerated, quirky personality.

Happy one year.

StumbleUpon: 9 Disgusting Facts (+Upcoming Posts)

Hello, hello!  I was stumbling like a month ago and saved a bunch of stuff that I wanted to show to you guys, so here you go!  This one really stuck out in my mind because it is disgusting, and I’m assuming it’s all true, unfortunately.  This is a little ‘folger’ and is absolutely not lady like at ALL…I’m sorry.  Just a little warning.  It’s funny but absolutely disgusting so if you are disturbed by things easily, don’t read this…it’s not that special, just sort of strange…Anyways, here it is:

 

I am working on a nail polish post that is taking me FOREVER to do…but I might have it up tomorrow (well actually today now, I just haven’t gone to bed).  I am painting my room tomorrow so I am going to be a little busy, but I will try to get it up for you guys.  I also want to start taking pictures of fall nail polish and stuff like that.  I am still doing my back to school series too so make sure to stay tuned on that!  Thanks for reading!  Talk to you soon.

Christmas Lights All Year Round!?

Hey guys!  So I have been seeing Christmas lights as decoration in people’s rooms a ton….and I sort of want to put them in mine…I recently pinned this pin where you can buy tulle from the fabric store, and tie it around Christmas lights to make it look even better, but I still haven’t decided if I want to do that yet, so I hav been finding lots of pictures, and I thought I’d show you guys them!  I still have two other posts planned for today, so stay tuned!  If you’d like to see my other picture post on mint, click here!
