One Year Later- The New Me!

Oh my gosh! Over a year has passed since my last entry. That proves how busy I am with soccer, school, life in general, and my crazy obsession for cosmetics. I started this blog, as any of you may remember, around 6th grade. I have changed a lot since then. First of all, I didnt wear any makeup besides concealer and powder in the 6th grade. I had the interest in makeup then, and was always trying to persuade my mom to let me use mascara because I was so self concious about my pale blonde eyelashes that made me feel so bare. My focus was mainly on writing and playing my favorite sport. In 7th grade my view on life and growing older changed me dramatically. I began using mascara, a funny story behind it. I went to my grandmother's church's Fall Festival Auction and they had a basket up for bids with various Mary Kay products, one of which was a mascara. In the basket was an eyeshadow, a sunscreen, an after sun replenishing gel, and lip gloss, and this mascara. Plus, a gift certificate to a boutique on Del Mar street (to clarify- the shopping district of downtown San Clemente) that my mom absolutely adores, called Bliss. My mother bid on the basket and won. She gave me the mascara and the sunscreen but kept the rest. Finally my day had come, and the next day at school I got many compliments from my friends. My self-esteem was at an extreme high at that time, which triggered my OCD for makeup which has lead me to become the person I am today. I have three drawers crammed with makeup of all sorts, organized by facial region (face/skin, eyes, lips). I am now in the 8th grade and wear makeup every day to school. My usual products are a foundation, concealer, powder, blush, eyeshadow, eyeliner mascara, and lip gloss. I will immediatly do a follow up post after I post this so that you are'nt reading a novel and falling asleep, talking about some of my favorite products at the moment.

SO LONG SINCE I'VE WRITTEN!

Hello! So sorry, I've been busy with ending my summer and starting 7th grade. When was the last time I wrote, July? Well, I have to update you on the big 7. It's SO COOL! I love all my teachers, all my classes, and I absolutely love my homework! Just kidding. I am acually finishing up some homework now. Math, Science, and English. I wrote a poem for english and I thought you might want to hear it.

I Am...

I am beautiful like a rose.
I wonder if the world will bring peace.
I hear laughter in my head.
I see myself smiling in the frame.
I want my life to be a never ending line of laughs.
I am beautiful like a rose.

I pretend to be known throughout the world.
I feel the joy beneath my skin.
I touch my silky blonde hair as if it were the softest cloud.
I worry about my future, and how it will turn out.
I cry when I see other lives lost.
I am beautiful like a rose.

I understand I will not live forever.
I say life is like a song.
I dream of things nobody knows.
I hope I can be the best I can be.
I am beautiful like a rose.

What did you think? Comment with your name and state. Thanks guys! I'll try to write more often!

Here she is!

Busy Week: No Mexican Heat!

Sorry I havn't posted in a while, I have been busier than the shopping mall on Saturday. Just got back from Mexico yesterday, which was a great trip! I would have written from there, but there is no internet reception so I couldn't get on. Plus, we dont have a computer down there, aside from my uncle's laptop and fancy touch screen phone with internet. The first day was really gloomy. All we did was sweep, dust, and unpack. We played Yahtzee that night, acually we played every night. The mosquitos ate me alive that night, in the morning I felt like I had a minor case of chicken pox! The next morning after Eggs, bacon, sausage, and tortillas, we walked up in the hills (which was great, but tiring). Uncle Bernie and Aunt Megan seemed to like it. It was gloomy, but at 4:00 the sun came out. We alll sat on our beach chairs and drank Diet Root Beer (Only the adults added alcohol). We shopped the strip mall downtown and I bought a new toe ring to add to my collection. We saw these cute little baby lions and tigers and got to take a photo with them! They were so cute! If I can figure it out, I'll post a picture of one of the lions named Penelope. That night the mosquitos left me alone, so I was itchless in the morning. In the morning, we walked the SAME walk again only we went a lot further. 3 uphills! And they were steep (Like / )! I was about to die when we got home, but I drank some Power Ade and felt better. The sun was out all day that day, so we hit the beach. The water is ice cold there, but it felt good. We went home and played Scrabble. I took a nap, a long nap, while the adults chilled. No mosquiotos that night. Saturday was a lazy day. It was gloomy, so we all stayed inside. Sunday, we hit the road. I might go back in a month, so I said goodbye to it for now!
