Another Saturday goes by. This one I actually really enjoyed. As we mastered the song Even Me, I really felt it. That feeling doesn't come too often. Either way, we had a concert to get to, We performed. Though our mood was killed due to lack of AV assistance and low mics, I still feel like we did a good job... Members of my church came and supported us. That is the thing I love, the constant togetherness. It made me appreciate my church even more. Most people go to church and go home. Barley talk to anyone, just sleep and then go home. No, us we stay the whole day. Not just in church, but we all hang out, and have a good time. Overall, we love each other and we support each other. It isn't broken up into sections or groups, we are one big happy family. I am so appreciative of my church. I have had the most long lasting friendships and the greatest times there. They have influenced me to be in a good crowd, to present myself in such a manner. I am very grateful.


Give Thanks With A Grateful Heart...

They are absolutely hilarious. 

I was feeling really Patriotic so I got most people to take a picture in front of my American Flag. 

A Very Happy Thanksgiving from me to you! I really do have so much to be thankful for this year- my family, friends, church, school and you, my readers. To those celebrating, I hope you eat lots of turkey and pie and spend the day with loved ones. Although i wasn't really in the festive mood,I was very fortunate enough to spend it with my family and dear friends. Together we made lovely pastries. I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! 

This is one of the most different Thanksgiving I have had in a while, We went to the city to go see the Thanksgiving parade. (Very cool - Up close rather than on the tv screen) Afterwards, we went strolling around the city. We stopped by a friend's house then got back to my place.

The night was filled with dancing around, incredible laughter, pastry making, food fitting on the table, it was simply amazing. I like having company on Thanksgiving. Usually its just my family and I. 

I had a good time today. 
Have a happy Thursday!

Another MAC Lipstick to add to the nonstop collection. This one is a Matte - Diva by MAC. I actually really wanted to try this after I saw how great it looked on a friend of mines, Giovanna. So its here, I have it! I realized I tend to post pictures of the lipstick but not how it looks on ME. I will get to that when I have the time, Making a collage, rather than one by one. 
Have a happy Tuesday!


Another Weekend.

Also has been a while since i posted.
Lately this week has been filled with all nighters, crazy late nights and tired days. I was overdosed with homework, suffering from a lack of sleep or no sleep at all. It sucks really. My up point of my week though, is that I got EVERYTHING done on Thursday night at an early time - 8:30. I was ecstatic on how early I finished. I went to bed by 10 , had a great sleep and went to bed early. The next day, Friday, I had three tests. Chemistry, Global History, and Geometry. Overall, i think i did a good job. I was looking forward to the weekend. 

Besides that, I got into Oh Snap. I knew i was going to get in either way, because I'm taking a class that produces it at the end of the year, but I said my piece  My teacher was very proud of me. This was the first time I didn't get negative feedback. Shocker. But its great. My piece started as a narrative. But it was so emotional, filled with everything that was actually going on in my life and I couldn't bear to finish it. So through each problem - each point that was made in my narrative. I summed it up into a stanza in my poem- My rap. The feedback was great. I'm proud that my voice was heard - My feelings, my emotions were out there. And people loved it - Loved me for me. 

I reorganized my bedroom. I feel that it was too jampacked. Too much things in too little places. So i finally hooked up that american flag up and simply cleared out space. About time. It looks more grown. 

Friday afternoon , I went to Soho with my friend Mitchell. Its actually the first time we hung out after school - actually going some where besides Springfield or my house. I'm proud of us. Shoot. Throughout the train ride, we jammed to Azealia Banks. 

We checked out Urban Outfitters and TopShop along with other stores. I saw the creepers that i wanted... Oy. One day... I went to Necessary Clothing, Got me some shoes. Its crazy because although i brought my spiked flats for $25 they are selling them now for 10 BUCKS. 
I have to go back and get my leggings. Velvet, Leather and skeleton print. I'm satisfied with my purchase though. I got a good amount of shoes. 

This morning i went to church. I wore a dress I got from the flea market. But it was enhances. I cut and snip there and added a piece or two. Wala! It came out nicely. Although it wasn't finished, I was anxious to get er done. I wore my new black booties with it with white stockings. Got the job done. 
I got to my recital late, played one song (by accident - I was supposed to play two) This time i felt much better. Even before hand, I wasn't as nervous as i was last week. 
I want to work on my piano life. This week of late nights or up all nights really got to me... I don't want to keep doing that. Plus, I barely practiced... Once again, i need to work on how I do things. I notice I continually procrastinate. My mom always pushes me to be the best i can be. But am i pushing myself?
Im not. 
NOTE TO SELF. - WORK ON MANAGING TIME - Balance my piano work, homework, and extracurricular actives. I know i can do it. 


Normal Day Passes By

Today's outfit , i forgot to capture on myself.
Today was a normal day, i had my hair tied back in a turban. It seems as though lately i have been getting more and more homework and less and less sleep. I feel as if it has seemed as more homework because of my constant procrastinating and coming home late. Something I have to work on. I need to take a break from my laptop and focus on school and my work in piano. I have another recital this weekend and I don't want to mess up on either songs. Tonight I will pull another late night and get everything done. Hopefully this will be the last of those nights. Boy oh Boy.

I had a very tiring day today, Due to the fact i didn't get any sleep at all the night prior, I caught myself dozing off way more than a couple times everywhere today. Never the less, though getting to school late, I managed to get through the day. At Vocal Workshop, I preformed "Lean On Me". Though I was practically half asleep as I did it, it came out pretty good. ^.^ 

Have a Happy Tuesday! 

New Obsession

So i have a new obsession.
As i was at a thrift store, looking through the books i remembered of my childhood,
I saw a book at about these Old fashioned paper dolls.
I fell in love instantly - all over again
I used to be motivated by these books when i was younger. I used to attempt at making Paper Dolls as so,

Now, they inspire how i dress.
I want to start DIY projects on the following ideas.

My Weekend.

I haven't posted in a while! Even Google made me sign back in rather than already being on my account! Haha. I just hadn't had time to do it in my busy weekend filled with sleeping horribly late and waking up dreadfully early. This weekend was an actual fun weekend rather than my usual regular weekends. I'll sum each day up.

That was actually the skirt from the uniform dress i picked up at the thrift store! It fitted perfectly, i didn't even have to bobby pin the sides, lol
Here's a tip. Need extra warmth? Rather than just simply wearing socks, Wear a pair of long gloves on top. The gloves without the part for your fingers. It looks cute and sock like and it keeps your feet much warmer.
I looked around this morning and saw small piles of snow every where. Hurricane Sandy really did something with this weather. Its crazy.
Overall, today was a good day. I presented a rap i wrote the night before in place of my dramatic narrative. I preformed it for Open Mic. It went really well and my timing was perfect. I actually had more energy today. Surprisingly.
The night before, i slept around 4:30 in the morning. Why? You might ask? Homework. I was behind in some of my classes and i needed to get it done. On Friday, I handed in all homework that needed to be done. I was relieved. Though i was late to school, due to a late homework night, I got everything done the night before. And that felt great.

As soon as I got home, i started getting ready for my friend Tara's Sweet Sixteen.

It was actually really fun. My friends and I, took a coach bus that she provided. It took about 45 minutes. We arrived at Chateau Briand. It was a beautiful place. My aunt had her reception there a couple years ago. At first we all went to the upstairs room. There was a father daughter dance, Constant shots of ourselves at the photo booth (Hey, it was free!) food, performances, catering, and dancing the night away. That is what I call a decent party. It has me thinking of my sweet sixteen. 

The Next Day

I always wanted to take a picture like this. I saw the idea on tumblr and set out to get er done. Lol

Saturday was a slow day. I had a recital at a church named Jerusalem in Brooklyn. (Ironic, Haha) The nerves were killing me ! I messed up only once but it turned out to be good. No one noticed so that was a breath of relief  Afterwards, me and some church friends went for a bite at a BBQ place not too far. After the recital was over, My mom drove me, my sister, Isaac and Rebecca to my friend Samuel's house for a get together. It was pretty cool. They served "Friti" and cake. Perfect Mix. We spent an hour talking and playing dominoes while listening to Just Dance. (not playing it, just listening - We're just lazy)

The Next Day, 

I woke up at 7 to go to the flea Market with my mom. This time, i found a lot of cool things there. I actually sat there and thought. "What would i wear this with? Do i actually need this
My best purchases;

American Flag (Wanted for FOREVER!)

These tribal pullovers

Green oxford Shoes (My size, thank goodness)
Velvet Blazer

Its fun to go because everything is at an awesome price.

Later on, my sister and I went to the city to support Samuel on his birthday. We went to Applebees and  saw Taken 2 at AMC theater.
