Scenes from the Weekend

weekends are the bomb. I love them. who doesn't?!

I got this idea from Busy Bee Lauren. all credit goes to her. :) all she does is posts a few pictures of her weekend, so I thought it would be a fun idea to do here!

so here are a few pictures I took over this weekend...

I found a lady bug! official signs of Spring people!

she's running away!

bye-bye lady.

this is a necklace I got for my birthday. It has an eiffel tower with jewels, a heart locket, and a black little bow. I loove it!

I wear this all the time now. :)

it rained almost all weekend which ruined some of my plans. that's ok. the sky still looks amazing!

hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I don't have school tomorrow so I'm planning on doing a few things with my friends. :)

happy sunday!

I'm Sick...

... and I think I've caught the BIEBER FEVER!! 

yes, it is true. I went to go see the Justin Bieber movie "Never Say Never 3D" with my friends opening day. and it was pretty much AH-MAZING.

aw, how cute? his poster matches my blog!

before I saw the movie, I liked Justin as a person and as an artist, but I wasn't obsessed. but after the movie, I appreciate him sooo much more!! if you are NOT a Bieber fan, I still recommend seeing it. I've heard so many stories where people hated Justin Bieber and saw the movie, and came out as a complete fan! overall, his story was really inspiring and he truly has a lot of talent. Justin came from being no one, to being one of the most famous people in the world!

while we were waiting in line (we were one of the first ones luckily!), we talked to a few other Bieber fans. they were really nice and we talked the whole time. we even ended up sitting by them once we got into the theater! I love nice people. ;)

before they started the show, the employees of the theater were asking us Justin Bieber trivia for a $5 gift certificate to the theater. and guess who answered one of the questions right?? THIS GIRL! :) the question went somewhere along these lines, "what celebrity singer did Justin ask out on a date, but was rejected by?" and the answer: Rihanna. yessss.

anyways, here are a few pictures...

they spelled it Beiber. psh. -__-
left to right: Andrea, Danielle, Cheylie
Cheylie and I with our over-sized 3D glasses!
they were SUPPOSED to give everyone purple 3D glasses, but no. we had to use these huge ugly black ones. oh well.

so that was my "Never Say Never" experience! everyone... GO. SEE. IT. NOW. :)

if you have seen it, what are your thoughts??

Color Inspiration

lately, I've been really into different color schemes. as you can tell by my blog design, i'm obsessed with the color purple. I have no idea why. it is my birthstone color if that has to do with anything! anyways, colors are everywhere (obviously) and are so inspiring.
I've been researching some popular color schemes and there were a few that I fell in LOVE with. I've been especially inspired by this particular color scheme...

isn't it pretty? it has a very calm and warm feeling to it, which I adore. I created this collage of pictures to go with the theme...

what do you think? what colors are you inspired by?



one of my best friends gave me this quote the other day:

"Even though we've changed and we're all finding our own place in the world, we all know that when the tears fall or the smile spreads across our face, we'll come to each other because no matter where the crazy world takes us, nothing will ever change so much to the point where we're not all still friends."

that quote right there, relates to me and my friends soo much. it's like it was written for us!

this weekend was my 15th birthday. my friend, Kennedy, offered to have a party at her house so I put together something quick and invited a few of my closest friends. we played lots of games, ate lots of junk food, and talked a whole lot too. I think it turned out pretty well, and everyone had fun. :)

*all pictures were take at my birthday party. they're not the best quality of pictures, but it's whatever.*
I love my friends. <3

p.s.- let me know what you think on the picture sizing on this post. too big or just right?

(wow, I sound like a tv advertisement)

I use my ELF Professional Eyeshadow Brush pretty much everyday of my life. I also use the Total Face Brush from ELF, too!

Wednesday Wishes

I wish I could afford to buy an iPad. they look amazing!

I wish someone would make me these cupcakes for my birthday on saturday. one word: yum.

I wish to redecorate my bedroom, starting out with this bed set...

I actually am buying this soon, so I guess this isn't really a wish...

I wish to be happy and have a better attitude on life.

I wish to learn not to care about what people think of me. I am who I was made to be, and it shouldn't matter what people think of me.

one, two,  & four: via

what do you wish for? link up at Bright Wishes!
