That's Where I Want To Be

Tomorrow morning I will be heading off to.....LOS ANGELES!!! (Can you tell I'm excited?!?!)  I can't wait to be back in LA.  However, I'm currently facing 2 problems: First, I have to pack for 5 days in 1 carry-on.  Being an over-packer definitely is making this a challenge. Second, I lost my camera.
So tonight I will be running around the house and Target, picking up any last minute items for my trip.  I need to make sure nothing is over 3 ounces, because if the airport takes away anything of mine, I will not be happy.  Keep reading for some tips in packing.  First, roll your clothes.  They take up a lot less space rolled then when they are folded.  Second, pack your big shoes first, like your heels, wedges, or boots and don't place them next to each other.  Also, buy minis of everything-from hairspray to toothpaste.  You really don't need an entire, full size for your trip.  But the best tip I can give you is plan out each outfit, right down to the last detail.  If everything is planned out you won't end up bringing anything extra.  This always helps me out.  Don't forget to leave a little extra space for the shopping on your trip!!
As for my lost camera, all what I can do is look everywhere in my house for it.  If I don't have it with me, I'll just accept that, however disappointing it is.  But in just hours, I will be in LA!! :)

Summer Has Arrived!!

Hey Dolls!!
It's SUMMER TIME!!  Can you believe it?? This year flew by so quickly, it seems like yesterday I was auditioning for dance or going on the school bonding trip.  I am so happy to have all these good memories from senior year, but it's unreal that high school is completely over.  There are just so many memories: the big dance performance, the master class with Will from So You Think You Can Dance, Fall Ball, Winter Formal, Prom, coffee houses, everyone's birthday celebrations, New York City, Hessler street fair, senior week, the list just goes on and on.  But it's also the little things I'm going to miss, such as the conversation over lunch, the witty and sarcastic comments from my friends, and the hanging out on the couches in school.  I found this one quote that fits this perfectly "Don't cry because it came to an end, smile because it happened!"  So basically it's time to cherish all the high school memories, smile and remember them, and be happy that you have them.
So now that it is summer, and I have no more tests to study for or events to fundraise for, I can now post more frequently.  I'm hoping to also get back into filming videos for youtube.  It does take up a lot of time, but now I have plenty of time!  I have some hauls I want to film and other ideas.  Also, I'll be updating my photo gallery page on this blog "Ready for Those Flashing Lights" so be sure to check it out.
Since there's the entire stretch of summer left, it's time to share with you some of my summer goals.  I want this summer to be the best summer yet, full of fun stuff to do, and to make it unforgettable.  No one wants a boring summer at home, so I want to fill my calendar with fun things to get out of the house.

  • Get Tan: Who doesn't want a sun-kissed, bronze glow??!! 
  • Document Everything: Time to take my camera around with me and take photos to remember this summer!
  • Keep In Touch With High School Friends: Even though we're destined for college at the end of this summer and we're spread out all across the map, we've been friends for years and it's time to keep in touch through calls, texts, and Facebook.
  • Closet Clean-Out: Time to get rid of all the clothes and shoes I haven't worn in awhile and go shopping for a wardrobe that I'll love for college.
  • Practice Dancing: After dancing twice a week for the past two years and putting on 4 performances, I definitely don't want to lose what I've worked for!  This means taking Zumba and ballet classes at my gym, taking salsa dancing, doing dance DVDS, and stretching everyday of course!
  • Save & Earn Money: Yes, college will be expensive so time to use this summer time to earn money and save it.  Cut out those little expenses that add up and be wiser about spending.
  • Create a photo album about my favorite memories from high school and bring it to my dorm room. 
  • Workout!! Maintain that healthy shape! 

One last important thing-travel!! Everyone travels in summer, whether it's a big trip to tour Europe or a day trip to the beach, don't forget about traveling.  It's fun to get out of the hometown for a bit and explore some place new.  I just came back from New York City last week, which was fun and exciting, and next week I'll be heading off to Los Angeles!!!!  So everyone, comment below with 1 summer goal of yours and/or 1 place you'll be traveling to!

Gossip Girl Returns!

     Who's excited for tonight??! Me, me, me!! Here's why: Gossip Girl returns with new episodes in just over 30 minutes from now!! Finally, after waiting over a month, we'll learn if Chuck Bass is dead or in a coma (but there's no way the producers can kill him off, right?!), if there is a wedding for Louis and Blair, what Louis will do when he finds about about Chuck and Blair, what's going on with the Insider and the movie for Dan, and so much more it'll take me a hour to write about it.  I saw in People magazine a picture of Blair in a wedding gown in the streets of NYC and pictures online, which means there has to be some sort of wedding for Louis and Blair.  But if Blair picked Chuck, why is there still a wedding?  My guess is that Chuck will stop the wedding or Blair will run out halfway through and find Chuck, either still in a coma or alive.  And don't forget all the pretty clothes and trends that Serena, Blair, and all the other characters will be wearing. Don't you wish you had their wardrobe?
     Speaking of tv shows, anyone a fan of Pretty Little Liars? 2 weeks ago, it returned and this season we'll FINALLY figure out who A is!!! I heard on an "Interview With A" that A has been seen a lot throughout the seasons.  So far, I think A is a group of people because there's no way 1 person can know absolutely everything.  That's nearly impossible, right? The actually "A" person we've been seeing has been a guy, from the looks of his body it has to be a man.  I think people helping A are Jenna, Garrett, Jason, Ian before he died, Lucas, and Mona.  They all seem suspicious. Time will tell who A is. Mondays are now the best day for TV with both Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars on!!
     Keep checking back for new posts!! I have some fashion and beauty ideas, including reviews, inspiration, celeb fashion to get the look for less, and many other ideas!! Excitinggg!!!

Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year!
Don't forget the tiaras!


Happy New Year chicas!!! Can you believe it's 2012 already?!?!   2011 went by so fast!  Hope you all had ahh-mazing times celebrating the new year last night! One of my best friends, Natalie, came over and we had a sleepover.  It was so much fun.  After gossiping and chatting, we watched some movies and the ball drop.  After the count down and cheering, we ate some cake a popped a bottle of bubbly (not real, unfortunately, just sparking grape juice), and took a few pictures.  It was super fun!!
Both of us kept our outfits simple and chic.  We both wore black skirts and white tops, great minds think alike! :) My skirt was a slim-cut skirt with sequins and a front zipper.  I paired it with a plain, white v-neck tee, a sparkly necklace and chandelier earrings.  Natalie wore a black, layered skirt with a white tee with a zebra on it and sparkly blue nails.
Anyway, I'm excited to have a fabulous and fun year!! A lot will happen this year: finishing high school, picking a college, preparing for college, going to college, turning 18, and TONS of other things.  One of my wishes is to make this my best year so far.  :)


P.S. Comment below and tell me what you wore for New Year's Eve!
