Senior Year

Senior year has been pretty blah so far. All summer I worked and now it's like I work all the time and then I also have school on top of that.

And I am trying to graduate early since I almost have all my credits.  I turned in my forms and everything and even paid for two online classes for my second semester english class and algebra 2 class. Wish me luck, I need it especially since I  will be taking 5 online classes that I have to finish in 103 days.. aka a little less than 4 months. I have to be finished by December 19th.

December 19th please take your time.

After I graduate (hopefully early) I am going to work full time and save up for college since I got accepted early to Arkansas Tech University! (not sure if i mentioned that before.)
But yay !!!

These next months are going to be stressful.

Now back to writing my essay for english class. eugh...

Shots, shots, and shots

Not that kind of shot.

Today I went to the doctor, my new pediatrician since moving to Oklahoma. I had to get a Hepatitis A shot and then I got my Meningitis shot as well.

And I am finally registered for school., and sadly I have to ride the bus to school, the bus! But I guess I can deal with it.

Giving in to shopping...

Well I decided to buy the agenda... but I bought the one that was $22... and with free shipping, thank goodness. And then I did more shopping online.

Gosh I hate myself. But it's okay, I got my paycheck today, but my plan is to go shopping tomorrow..

Then again, there is nothing to do much in Oklahoma but to spend money... life here has been boring so far, since all I do is work. The only thing I did near fun was go out with all of my co-workers last night at IHOP, it was pretty fun... I guess I got to know all of them a little better, since I just started there, and they have all been working together there forever. But it's okay.

This school year, I don't know how I am going to work there.. It's such a far drive... I live on 131st and my work is on 31st... so a 100 streets away.

Maybe I can just work there on weekends and then somewhere closer after school ( if I can handle it) maybe at Cato.

Speaking of school for senior year,  I have to get hepatitis shot... and I HATE NEEDLES AND DOCTORS. But then again I need to get it updated so I can send the records to A tech for college.

And speaking of doctors, I have weird bumps on my face, (maybe mosquito bites) and I feel em' on my back now.. So I should go take care of it.

PS I should find out if they have a shopaholic group meeting, like AA undercover. LOL. Night.

So I am incredibly tired, but it's worth it all right?

So with my new job...

I was able to buy myself a tablet! Thank goodness since my phone is crazy and has been dropped in water so many times so therefore the mic won't work.

So I looked online and did some research, and I found the ASUS MeMo Pad HD 7. I was watching youtube and reading reviews over it, and people said it was good, for the price. I am not to keen on tech stuff and little stuff they were saying that bothered them, don't really bother me that much.... So far, I love it.

I bought mine at Walmart for only $124.00, you can get the warranty for $29 but, I passed. I got the blue tablet, I wanted to get the white one, but blue is all they had, but the blue let me tell you, basically looked black, because it's navy. Its only navy on the back side of the tablet. 

So far, like I said I love it, and hopefully it was a good investment, since it was a lot cheaper  than other tablets and a lot more affordable than an iPad mini. 

click here to see on walmart search page :)

This is how it looks, hopefully I can use it for school this year. 

Also, I have been looking at Lily Pulitzer agendas, and they are so cute but, are they worth it...? I have been thinking of getting one just to see... Maybe once I get my paycheck next Friday, since I worked 43 hours the past two weeks, and worked this whole week (including tomorrow whew). 

They look pretty cute no?

Hopefully I can get one.... but $28 just for an agenda.. eh pricey for that.

Hello Oklahoma!

Hello Oklahoma!

Picture of the full moon from Friday June the 13th. OooOoOo spooky. (Yes I really took this picture from my iphone believe it or not) 

I haven't posted anything in a while, but for the past couple of weeks my family and I have been living in Oklahoma. 

I really like it so far. A lot slower and not as so fast paced like Texas. And much much less traffic. 

And also, I got my first job! As a cashier at my aunts store! 

I just started this week, and it was hard the first couple of days trying to learn all of the PLU codes and I kept messing up and it was so hard trying to give back people the right amount of chance while there is a growing line. 

But thankfully I had someone next to me the last four days helping me. But I have sorta gotten the hang of it. I'm just scared for tomorrow since there's not ging to anyone around me to help me learn the PLU CODES if I don't know what veggie is which. 

Gosh wish me luck please, cause sure need it!

I'll post from my actual laptop once we get wifi at the new house!

Painting is a drag

Just painted my new room...

 The idea of painting is fun, but one you get started it gets annoying and it is a lot of hard work. 

Good thing we got the paint and primer together in one big 5 gallon bucket from Lowes. 

The top is before and bottom is after. From a salmon pink/orange to a gray/silver/blue.

Last week of school, last week in Texas

Last week of school!

So tomorrow is my first final :( ugh. But it's okay! I only have 3 more half days until school is out.

And then this week were are also cleaning up the house and boxing and packing everything up for the move to Oklahoma this weekend. I am so excited to move to a new place and meet new people!

I also have a job as a cashier at my aunts store starting next Monday. And it's a good thing since I need to start saving money and everything for college, which hopefully I will be attending. So many exciting things happening these next two weeks.

New room to paint

Too many colors 

Trying to pick on a color of paint to my my new room. Well me and my little sisters new room. 

It's a fairly big room, and it's big enough for the two of us. Just hopefully we can keep it clean and tidy. 

We decided on purple and a beige (I'm hoping she'll come through with gold)

Like those colors... 

Sorry this picture is from Instagram and they look pink, but I assure you they are shades if purple. 

And then my sister also wants to paint out bathroom (in our room(yes!!!!)) tiffany blue. Ehh hopefully, hopefully I can talk her out of that an we can go with.a purple to stick with the same color scheme.

DIY: Quick flower head piece

DIY: Flower head piece-- with real flowers! 

I've been seeing a lot of people wearing those flower head pieces in their senior shots or just pictures in general.

Today, my mom was throwing out her Mother's Day flowers since we were going out of town that evening and I found a perfect opportunity to make a flower head piece from real flowers--so just incase your on the to, or doing a photoshoot, you can easily find some nearby wild flowers and take a cool picture with this on! 

Above is the bouquet of flowers that I used, first you will need to size the stem of the flowers you are going to be using 

Leave about 2 1/2 inches of the stem left over 

Next, use your nail and puncture a hole on the middle of the stem. * leaving just a hole so the other stems will not fall apart 

Now you can take another flower and use the stem as if it is a thread going into the head of the needle like pictured abouve 

Next you want to pull the stem to whee that flower will meet the stem that holds it 

 After a while it should start to make an arch form and the flowers should all be attached 

Continue to do the same until you have made a complete circle 

Now you have a perfect head piece made of real flowers you can keep for the time being! (Better than paying for one, since this looks a lot prettier!) 
And here is my model, Summer, my little sister.  

 Hope you found this helpful, and hopefully can reference this in the future!

Earlier this evening on the way to Oklahoma to see my family's new house! We just got here an hour ago maybe. And tomorrow is the first time I get to see the house! 

Thanks for reading! 

DIY: Perfect French tip

DIY: The perfect French tip manicure

I have gotten my nails done only once, the acrylic fake ones, they looked awesome but theh costed $30. And me personally, I am never going to spend that much money a month just for some nails. 

  But tell me the truth, don't these nails above look like she got them done at a salon? They look awesome! And I did it in the most simplest, cheapest way possible! 

Here is how you can get this simple French manicure...

What you'll need: 

-Nail polish remover
-An old make up brush (eye shadow one works the best)
-white nail polish
-clear nail polish

Fill the cap of the nail polish remover with the nail polish remover so you can dip in your brush easily.

Make sure your nails are clear of any other polish and file your nails to the length or shape you desire.

When starting... 

Paint the tip of your nail going in an upward motion ( like seen in the picture above) do this to all of your nails.

It's okay if it's messy and uneven you can fix it later ( see below)

Next you dip your make up brush into the cup of nail polish remover 

Now once dipped, from side to side you can clean the edge into a curved edge. 
Do this to all of your nails to however long you want your white tip to be 

After cleaning up the edges, take a smaller brush and clean up the excess white around the edges of your fingers

 After doings so, you can paint a clear coat over your nail. I personally do two coats of clear after doing the first set.

*Instead of using a clear coat you can do a white glitter on the naked end of your nail-- then wait for the paint to dry and then paint a top coat if clear. 

This is a easy way for an awesome manicure. It looks so great when I do it people are surprised when I tell them I do my own nails!! 

Sorry for the blurry pictures!

How to get free music for your iPhone with NO CATCHES

How to get your free music on you iPhone without paying anything!

Most people pay $1.29, .99, or even 14.99 for a whole album on iTunes, when really if you got music the way I did, you would have all the music you wanted for free!

Or most people use apps like "iTube" but using all those apps require data, and people like me, I have a 10G plan shared with my family, so I never want to go over the limit.

I don't have a crazy playlist of songs with 500 songs, I have probably 200 or less, but I have about 95% downloaded for free, the other 5% downloaded last minute because I was so desperate for that song right then and there.

Go to this link posted above, and download it.

When you see this screen, press download, and then you will come soon to find this pop up after it loads..

After accepting all the terms and agreements, yada yada yada and it should finish installing.

When you open up the application, this should be what you see,

All you have to do is go on youtube, and copy the URL on the web address, and cut and paste it on this application, and it should download to your "download" file (if you have a windows 7, which I do)

From here, now you can go on YouTube and pick your song you want to download

Copy the URL and paste it into the application
Now you can click download (it's the downward arrow button)

After your music you will here a little tone notifying you that it has downloaded, and as it does that, your iTunes from your computer should pop up.

From here, all you need to to is connect your iPhone to your laptop/computer and sync your music (make sure the songs you want are checked in the little box)

This is how I download music for free, and it's the easiest way possible!
Now you can listen to your music on your phone knowing that you didn't have to pay a dollar for every song you play!

And plus, now you have these songs down on your computer to play too.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

DIY Old T Shirt Quilt

How to make use of your old t shirts

After being on drill team for all of my freshman, sophomore, and half of my junior year, I had a numerous amount of tshirts. Some of them had stains and holes and shrunk from all the washes over the past 2 1/2 years. (the blanket is actually a lot bigger than what it appears to be in this picture posted above.)

So at a spur of the moment decision I decided to cut all of my tshirts up and turn it into a quilt. It only took me a day to make it.

The way I did it was for FREE. Most people who want things like this done, get it done professionally, but I think when you make it your self it makes it even more special.

What you'll need:
-Old t shirts that you know you will never wear again (I used about less than 20 using both front and back of the t shirts)
-A blanket large enough to cover the t shirts (I used an old soft blanket that used to lie around in the living room just because.)
-A sewing machine, or you could hand stitch it, but that would take forever, I used a sewing machine, I recommend it but only if you know how to use it.
-Thread that matches (I used black.)
What you need to do:
-Cut up t shirts in square shapes, where you get the part of the tshirt you want ( I recommend to cut a little larger, because once you stitch it together they become smaller.)

-Figure out how you want to arrange the t shirts

-Pin the t shirts with the "Right sides together"-- meaning that the outside of the tshirt will face the other t shirt as you start to sew them together.

- Prepare sewing machine (bobbin, and then thread the machine)

-Sew along the edges, using about a quarter of an inch away from the cutting edge

Once you have sewn your shirts together, 

-Check for any holes or opening because if later found, you will have to hand stitch it (Which is harder when the blanket is sewn all together.)

-Lay out the blanket you want on the outside for the opposite side of your quilt flat on the ground

-Align t shirt quilt and blanket with "right sides together" (therefore meaning that they are inside out(which that may be confusing reading it, but once you lay it out and do it, it will make perfect sense in why you do that))

-Pin the edges together, and cut excess of the blanket (if there is any, but don't cut off to much)

-Now you can begin sewing the edges like you did before with the quilt.

-Sew around all the edges, until you get to at least one t shirt square away from the close and turn your blanket inside out.

-You then will have to hand stitch the rest

Then there you have a perfect home made blanket that you made yourself. It really sound like a lot of work, but in the end for my blanket it's nearly worth a $250+ blanket with all the added costs of the t shirts over time.

I hope that you will read this and try this out with your old t shirts. My blanket it really soft because of how some of the shirts are really old and over washed!

Ask me any questions!

Here are some pictures of me wearing some of these shirts from my freshman and sophomore year of high school! (notice: these pics are from FRESHMAN year...)

* I used a sewing machine from walmart that my mom bought for less than $100 (the original price was $300+
