Fashion from the Room: Boots

When it is cold outside, you want to keep your feet warm. One of my favorite ways to keep warm is not only to wear "fuzzy socks" but to also wear boots. There is a wide variety of boots to wear. From short ankle boots all the way to knee high boots. Not only do they keep you warm but they can match many outfits, depending on the boots.

If you have just have simple boots in black or brown, they are always easily matched with. It is likely to see a girl wearing her simple boots with her usual outfit. Boots are one type of shoe that I think girls should have. They are warm, cute, and can be worn formally and casually. I usually prefer the simpler boots just because it is much easier to match with outfits.

Here are examples of boots that I preferably like (all from my Pinterest board):

If you are feeling wild, you can always try different boots that are unique and a bit more flashy.

So get some boots if you haven't already. They don't have to be super fancy. They just have to be comfy for you, something that you like, and something that you could match with clothing easily (so you don't only wear it for "special" occasions.) Hope this gives you more of a fashion idea!

What we got for Christmas...

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas! I was so busy and lazy today that I yet again, posted when it's almost midnight! I stayed home all day and slept in, so there wasn't really much I did but relax. There just wasn't very much for me to do.

I did get to open my presents though. This is what I got:
I got clothes, make-up, perfume/lotion, paints, a pen, and The Piano Guy's Album. I have to say, it's not everything that I had on my wishlist but I'm happy with what I got. Warm clothes are always nice for cold winter days. Cute skirts are nice for when I'm feeling a little girly (as well as the make-up). I've been into piano and painting a lot this year so those are also perfect gifts!

Shiny Sun/Hannah Bunny got a couple of gifts too:
Shiny got a Kidz Bop Sing-a-Long microphone toy, a "Crazloom" bracelet kit, a kid's art kit, and a "Trio" tablet. The Kidz Bop toy was just something I found at the store that I thought she would like... I was wrong. I wanted to find Harry Potter/Pokemon stuff for her but it's impossible to find cheap items of those brands at stores now-a-days. The two art kits are for her to be creative since she loves to draw and make bracelets. (I should get her to post some of her drawings sometime.) And then of course, there's the "Trio" Android tablet. That has to be her favorite gift. (Now she no longer has to steal my iPod.) Shiny also got a few other small items such as ornaments and clothing.

One of our aunt/uncle gave the two of us a kit that is almost the exact same as the "Crazloom" kit our other aunt/uncle gave to Shiny. Well, great minds think alike, right?
I also got little presents from my friends and our neighbors which were delicious. (Chocolate, banana bread, and popcorn galore!)

So that was my Christmas. I was originally going to get an iPad but I really didn't want it. My mom has been asking for an iPad for almost a year now, so instead, I gave it to her as a surprise. I am happy for what I got and I don't want any more electronics than I need. Sure, it would be nice to play on Xbox and Playstation but sometimes, it's nice to have little gifts that will make me happy then play games all day. (I already do enough of that on the computer.)

I hope you all had a great day or a Merry Christmas! (Depending on whether you celebrate it or not.)

Christmas Eve Joys

Today has been a good day. A lot of good thing has happened. 

•Visit from a few neighbors: A tradition in our neighborhood is to give gifts for people on your street (or just your closest neighbors.) We already delivered our gifts but there were a couple of neighbors who came to our house to give gifts. I just love seeing all these small presents from my neighbors. Even if we aren't super close to each other, it's nice that we are all a community. So it was nice to get little treats from our neighbors. :)

•"New" neighbors: On one of the neighbors that dropped by our house today were familiar faces. Except, the last time we saw them, they didn't live 2 houses down the street! Today, my childhood guy friend who lived only a few blocks away, became my next door neighbor (well, almost next door neighbor.) I was surprised to hear that because I thought that I would never be able to see him again after I left our neighborhood elementary school. Now that he lives two houses down, I can no longer avoid him. I just hate that he had to see me looking my worst (messy hair, glasses, bad outfit, etc.) Not a good impression.

•Visit from an old friend: My mom's friend came over with her 4 boys today and they were happy to see us. They are the cutest boys ever. It was just nice to see them after 6 months.

•Visit from my Aunt Lisa and Uncle Minh: Right when I thought we couldn't get more visitors, we got one more visitor before leaving for the Christmas party. My aunt and uncle came and dropped off presents for ShinySun and me.  It was nice to see them before Christmas. I don't see them enough.

•Christmas party with the family: I had a Christmas party at my cousin's house (Uncle Loc's house) and it was so much fun. Sure, I didn't do much but it was nice to hang out with family. The adults had a gift raffle and it was amazing. Not only did people get good stuff but others got bad stuff... Like underwear and dog toys. It was a priceless moment. My mom got a cute little towel cartoon thing and it was adorable. I am typing this at the party because I know that I won't get home until after midnight... So yeah. The party was so much fun but it was exhausting.
I hope you all had a nice Christmas Eve! I sure did. I'll be sure to post my Christmas stuff in a couple of hours. Goodnight for now!

Winter Break!

Don't worry. I didn't forget about my promise.

I've just been so busy with Christmas shopping, doing housework, and other things that I haven't had the time to actually sit at my computer and type up something until now... when it's almost 12PM. (Hooray for Christmas preparations! Making me as busy as ever.) Although it is probably December 24th in majority of the time zones... But it's still the 23rd for me, so it counts!

At this point, I am so glad to not have school. I mean, my last week of school was just one word: TESTS. In almost every single one of my classes, I had an assessment (which was a test or project of some sort) before the end of break. It is really stressful to have to worry about Christmas, piano, and 8+ different assessments in one week. While other schools are watching fun holiday themed movies and just chilling, I get work in all of my classes. I didn't get to watch any movie or play any games. I just sat in a classroom, taking tests and such.

Friday wasn't all that stressful but everyone was hoping that school would be cancelled since it was a day before the break started. We had a big snow storm on Thursday so everyone was hoping there would be enough snow the next day (Friday) so we could just not go to school. Sadly, the snow stopped all of Friday and decided to come back on Saturday instead. Even though we didn't do much on Friday, I'm kinda glad I went to school.

Boy's Drill Team performed these girl's dance to
"Jingle Bell Rock."
There was an assembly at the end of the school day (which majority of the seniors and juniors left) that was just a school holiday concert. The band, concert choir, bell choir, and dance company performed for different segments of the assembly. There was a lot of laughing as the student body officers tried to raise as much money as possible for our school fundraiser. It was just a fun assembly to get everyone into the holiday spirit and a "Happy Holidays from Your High School!" I have to say, my favorite part of the whole assembly was when the "Boy's Drill Team" performed. (The "team" is just the male student body officers making fun of the girl's drill team.) Their Christmas performance was very amazing. Not only did they do some choreography from "This is Halloween" from The Night Before Christmas but they also performed "Jingle Bell Rock" from Mean Girls. They didn't have the dresses but the red short-shorts, red snowman t-shirt, and black panty hose was good enough to make it memorable.

Hopefully things will calm down a bit after Christmas because right now, my winter break has been crazy hectic (even without school.) I hope you are all having a nice winter break as well!

To my Fellow Follwers...

I apologize to all my fellow friends and followers for not posting recently.
The amount of work I've been doing this past month
(Okay, maybe that's a slight exaggeration.)

As you probably guessed, I've been extremely busy with school and life. I've been wanting to post a lot of stuff but I haven't had the time with the amount of things going on in life! Not only have I had to study for many classes, write essays, do projects, and keep up my social life, I also had to get ready for the holidays coming up!

I've just been completely swamped with things to do  that I don't have time to write. So, as an apology for not posting for almost a month, I'm going to make a commitment and post something everyday next week! Yup. I have never posted more than 2-3 days in a row so this will be a first for me! (I'm doing this because I need to post more and my winter break from school starts next week.) So look forward to the 7 day post from me! It will start on December 22 or 23.

Also, here's a little piece of artwork as an apology for my inactiveness. I did not too long ago for a contest. I didn't win but it was fun to draw.
I hope you all stay happy and warm... if you are in the northern hemisphere.
