Hey guys! I first came across this tag from Fleur's video, and it was so fun, so I decided to list out the questions from her video and add a few of mine! :)







1. What is the oldest item in your wardrobe/closet?

2. What is the newest item?

3. What is the most expensive item?

4. What is the most affordable/cheapest item (that you use a lot)?

5. What was the biggest bargain?

6. What was the biggest waste of money?

7. What are your 3 favorite items right now?

8. What is the most outrageous/colorful item in your closet (that you absolutely love)?

9. What is your favorite piece that you've gotten as a gift?

10. What is the most comfortable item?

11. What is the most uncomfortable item (but you would take the pain because you love it)?

12. Show us your favorite complete outfit (top, bottom, shoes, jewelry, accessories, and all).

That's all the questions I can think of for the Closet …

Girl Talk: My experience with getting my period!

To start off, I was an early bloomer. I started near the end of 5th grade. Thankfully, it didn't burst at school; I woke up one morning ande went to go the restroom. I was very confused to see brown stains on the toilet paper. LOL it wasn't poop, but dried blood. However as being an 11 year old, I got scared and called my mom. She looked at it and said, "Congratulations" you've started your period. LOL I was happily surprised, so I went to school that day with a bunch of pads my mom packed. Because I didn't know what the heck was going on, every time I felt something coming out down there, I ran to the restroom and changed. I ended using around 6 or 7 pads that day; LOL I know insane. Throughout the whole day, I felt very very uncomfortable and tired, but my dad treated me to TGI Friday's for dinner YAY :). For becoming a "woman", my parents got me a small diamond studded ring and silver necklace from Jared. Luckily, there were no bad memories …

My experience with AP Exams and rescoring

Image
For me AP Exams = bad experience. LOL to be honest, I should have studied more. Anywho, so far I have failed one of my exams, the AP Human Geography exam. I received a 2 on it.I was expecting at least a passing score because I was confident I did somewhat well and I was able to answer all of the free response questions. I was so flustered and disappointed that I decided to pay an extra $25 to have it rescored. I was hoping that they lost my booklet and only my MC portion got graded.After 2 weeks, I received the mail and it stated that 2 was the correct score. T^T. Now some time has passed, I should have just accepted my grade and saved my money because in the end it doesn't really matter; its not going to determine if you are successful or not. Also, it is not something you have to talk about in your college application; talking about your rigorous AP course is still impressive. BUT at the time it was a huge let down so the moral is to STUDY HARD!


Estee Lauder Pure Color gloss - Mod Poppy Review

Image
Hello again! Today I am going to review the Estee Lauder Pure Color gloss in Mod Poppy. This lip gloss is probably the most expensive one I own. However it fails to be my favorite :( Overall I will give this product 2.5 out of 5 stars.








Pros

- Hmm..... Well the packaging is nice and sleek, and it is good quality.

- I quite like the scent although others might think it smells like rich old ladies.


Cons

Although it was a gift, this product is way too expensive for the quality of the gloss. You are basically paying for the brand name which is reasonable for it being Estee Lauder. At our retailer, this gloss was around $25.

- It is slightly sticky which in my opinion is unacceptable for it being $25.

- The color is quite nice and sheer but I was expecting a little more color pay off.


**Overall, I would not repurchase this or recommend this to a friend. Maybe I would have if it was a long lasting lipstick, but all glosses usually rub off after a few hours or from eating, so I believe it is not…

Loreal EverStyle Alcohol-Free Curl Activating Mousse Review/ How to Make Curls last longer

My hair is coarse and straight, and it often struggles with keeping curls lasting all day. So I decided to invest into a curling moose, and it actually works! What I do is at night wash my hair then apply the Loreal EverStyle Alcohol-Free Curl Activating Mousse into my hair starting from ends to the roots. I let my hair airdry, and the next morning my hair becomes very pliable so it becomes easier and faster to curl my hair. Also I notice that when I do this, my curls are more bouncy. This method also works with braiding. I apply this product into my hair when damp and braid it. Without this mousse, my braided curls will immediately fall out! Overall I give this product ***4.5 out of 5 stars***


Pros
Alcohol free so it doesn't leave my hair very dried out.
It doesn't weigh down my hair, very light weight!
I paid around $7 at Walmart.
No crunchiness or greasiness what so ever.

Cons
It smells like rich old ladies.... haha. The smell slightly bothers me but the pros overshadow this f…
