The many quote accounts on Twitter!

Ok, if you don't already know, I am like, obsessed with quotes. And Twitter. Put both of then together and you get... Quote accounts, on twitter, that tweet cute quotes that us teen girls can relate to. Quote accounts are like, the best thing on Twitter ever, and before then, I really have no clue what people did on Twitter... read random peoples tweets? No probably not. There are thousands, if not millions, of quote accounts set up on Twitter. Every one of them as relatable quotes that all teen girls enjoy. Quotes about love, life, and friendship are my favorite kinds, most quotes on Twitter are about love. But if you're not interested, there's quote accounts set up for say, making fun of school, whatever. Well ok, technically these tweets aren't quotes, more, sayings, and just random things teens can relate to. Some quote accounts tweet about celebs, tv shows... some do post quotes though... like, a quote from their favorite character on a tv show, or a quote from a song, or a quote from a celebrity. All of these accounts set up to inspire teens are referred to as a "quote account" however. I loveee quote accounts, they're absolutely amazing to me. One that I really like is @quotesforateen - awesome quotes, so if you aren't already followed to her (Carlee) you should really go and follow. I also like @TheNotebook, @OMGwhatateen, @OMGTeenquotez, @Teen_quotez, and those are just to name a few! There are a ton if them. You really have to go check it out! It's not something you wanna miss!

Pretty Little Liars Book Review! ♥

I ♥ Pretty Little Liars. I ♥ it! I went to Barnes and Noble this past Tuesday, February 22, and I purchased 2 books with giftcards I had received for Christmas... A Tale of Two Pretties by Lisi Harrison and Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard. Now I was supposed to save both books to read at school, but that didn't happen lol. I finished Pretty Little Liars within 2 days after starting it, that's how amazingly good it was. I read it in bed, rather than tweeting ot texting or whatever else. I'm going to try not to give away any spoilers, I'll tell you guys before I do, if I do. But anyway, here's what it says on the back: "Spencer covets her sister's boyfriend. Aria's fantasizing about her English teacher. Emily's crushing on the new girl at school. And Hanna uses some ugly tricks to stay beautiful. But they've all kept an even bigger secret since their friend Alison vanished. How do I know? Because I know everything about the bad girls they were and the naughty girls they are now. And guess what? I'm telling. -A" See, that right there has suspense and mystery. The whole book is kindof like a dramtic romance type book...does that make sense? Everything in this book is described so well that I can pretty much picture it, and that's always a good thing. And it indicates that Sara Shepard is a really good writer. The prologue, in this case titled "How It All Started" is really good too, because it makes you get a sense of what's going on here and how Alison went missing. "A"'s messages make this book really suspenseful, and I really am dying to know who it is. A knows pretty much everything, like, when Ezra realizes that Aria is his student, Aria receives a text from A saying that she knows... who could A be? No one else saw them at the bar...et supposedly (SPOLER ALERT) A is Mona, Hanna's best friend, who is, in this book, I wouldn't consider her a major character, but she's definitely not a minor character either. She's like an in between. Then, the second A is (SPOILER ALERT) Alison? Yes, Ali is very much alive. It's all explained in the later books, I'm sure. So, yeah, there are two A's here. At the very end, technically after the book has ended, there's a "note" to the reader from "A" and here, I shall type it out for you, word for word. Here goes.... "I bet you thought I was Alison, didn't you? Well, sorry, but I'm not. Duh. She's dead.  Nope, I'm very much alive... and I'm very, very close. And for a certain clique of four pretty girls, the fun has just started. Why? 'Cause I say so. Naughty behavior deserves punishment, after all. And Rosewood's finest deserve to know that Aria's been doing some extra-credit smooching with her English teacher, don't they? Not to mention the nasty family secret she's been hiding for years. The girl is a train wreck. While I'm at it, I really ought to tip Emily's parents off to the reason she's been acting funny lately. Hey there, Mr. Fieldsm nice weather, huh? And by the way, your daughter likes kissing girls. Then there's Hanna. Poor Hanna. Just free-falling into dorkdom.. She may try to claw her way back to the top, but don't worry-I'll be there waiting to knock her rapidly growing back into a pair of stonewashed mom-jeans. Oh my god, I almost forgot Spencer. She's a total mess! After all, her family thinks she's a completely worthless skank. That's gotta suck. And just between us, it's about to get much worse. Spencer's keeping a deep, dark secret that could pretty much ruin all four of their lives. But who would tell such an awful secret? Oh, I don't know. Take a wild guess. Bingo. Life's so much fun when you know everything. Just how do I know so much? You're probably dying to know, aren't you? Well, relax. All in due time. Believe me I'd love to tell you. But what's the fun in that? I'll be watching. -A" So yep, that was the little note that "A" left to the reader. Right now, A is, as I know, (SPOILER ALERT) Mona. Yepp...definitely does not seem like A. But it makes sense, considering how Mona was treated back in seventh grade by the girls. It would make sense that she would want to get even...the thing is, how would she know all that stuff, the things the girls only told Ali? That's what I'd really like to know. Mona and Ali, if they're A, well then I'd probably have to guess that Mona and Ali are not true friends at all, like Aria, Spencer, Emily, and Hanna. Maybe, I'm guessing, Mona knows that Ali is alive and that Courtney exists?? Idk lol, but I definitely want to read Flawless. Sooo I want to try and read the rest of the PLL books that are out by July, when the 9th book, Twisted, comes out, and then I think there will be 3 more Pretty Little Liars books to come out after that.Which, I can't wait, because I would really like to know what Sara does after Courtney's existence, and Ali's being alive, is revealed...there wouldn't really be much of a mystery, would there? I'm guessing that maybe it's something to do with Toby and Jenna Cavenaugh. Now there's the TV series, and this is really confusing me because the girls are described completely different in the books than in the TV show. For example, Hanna has reddish-brown hair in the book, but is blonde on TV. I mean, the TV show does an amazing job of portraying the book. It just all makes sense, I guess. What I don't get is the whole Courtney/Alison thing, but I haven't gotten that far just yet. I'll probably do book reviews for the other PLL books as well, because this is definitely the best series I've ever read so far. Btw, thank you for reading this ♥ I know it was long, so if you read through the whole thing, well you're a true PLL fan ♥ so anyway, this is the book that I got, with this cover...
If you're wondering, the order of the PLL books so far would be...
1. Pretty Little Liars
2. Flawless
3. Perfect
4. Unbelievable
5. Wicked
6. Killer
7. Heartless
8. Wanted
9. Twisted
10. [Unknown]
11. [Unknown]
12. [Unknown]

Thank you for reading this! If you're going to read this book, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. xoxo, "A"

Ice Skatingggg

On Thursday, I went ice skating, and this winter, I've only been ice skating 2 times. The first, in January, with my sister and her best friend, and the second, Thursday, with my sisters and cousin. Th first time I was pretty much krazy glued to the wall hahaha, and I fell 3x, and once, it was kind of like dominoes...I was holding on to my sister, I fell, then she did, then her best friend did. This second time I went, I actually fell only once, and it was towards the end, too, and I fell flat on my butt...gthen it was like, impossible to get up w/o falling back down. But this second time, I could actually skate pretty well after 10-15 minutes. It was really fun, and I had a couple of races with my little sisters. Sadly, they won all 3 lol and I lost, but hey, they fell 5 and 11 and 24 times, and I fell just 1x. Hahahh I could go quite fast (: It was enjoyable, but of course I got a blister on my big toe... I should post a pic....it doesn't show my face like, at all, but I think I should get my parents' approval first...hahahh I'm gonna wrap this post up and then start working on a book review! Check back later to read!

La Famille

So I have this big family album thingy to make for French, and it's due, like, Monday, the 28th. And it was assigned like, 2 weeks ago. I have all my captions typed out, and am working on selecting pictures, right now, as I type, I'm actually saving pictures and emailing pictures from other computers and all that. Then, all I really have to do is select the pictures I'd like to use, and print them out, then edit my captions, print those, cut them out, glue, and decorate. Haha. And I waited quite a long time, and as you know, if you've read some of my previous posts, I am a big procastinator harhar. I mean, I get straight A's and stuff, but usually, I won't study for a big test or start a project till like, a few days before it's due. But hey, I still get straight A's in fact, on my last report card, I got straight A+s, with the exception of 2 As. Hahah. And one of them was actually in gym...lol. Anyway, my pictures are taking forever to send...haha. Well, I guess they've sent now... sorry, I'm pretty sure this is a boring blog....but it's gonna be fun picking picures and decorating....I got pretty pink paper...lol the color is called "Mauve Ice" lol. It's all big and square and 12x12...hehe. I can't wait to dp the decorating part of everything...it's gonna be fun...I guess this is kindof, in a way, a "scrapbook" well, not exactly, but similar, and I love scrapbooking. It's so fun. Should I start a craft channel on YouTube??? Hmmm... well anyway, my captions haha, are gonna be the death of me, I swear. I need to go back and do accents.... all that "fun" stuff. NOT. Oh well, I guess Frecnh is my favorite subject... it's interesting (c'est interresant) lol of course I meant to put an accent aigo on that e, but yeah. Hahahha. I guess I'm boring you now, so I guess I'll go back to working on my project. I'll blog later tonight if I get the chance!!!

What's wrong with using Wikipedia?

I trust Wikipedia, and use it to look things up all the time... usually the upcoming episodes of Pretty Little Liars or the upcoming episodes of Spongebob... and there's never once been a time where Wikipedia was wrong. And usually when I work on a school project I look things up on Wikipedia, then I'm like "Oh, wait, apparently Wikipedia's not trustworthy so then I go to some other site and the information is pretty much exactly the same, just stated differently. Anyway, who would put fake info on a site like Wikipedia? Well, I love most wikis actually... the Spongebob wiki, the PLL wiki, the Twilight wiki...I mean, who doesn't love em? Then there's those Mario game wikis also. I hate when the teacher assigns a huge project then is like "No using Wikipedia! It's not trustworthy!" but in my opinion it so is. Like, seriously, the research part of the project would be done in practically half the time if we could use Wikipedia...they really should make a website just like Wikipedia with guaranteed true info and facts, but it wouldn't be a wiki... that would just save so much time and all...of course, that would take alot of work, and you'd have to add and take away some info. But whatever. I so <3 wikipedia, ESPECIALLY Pretty Little Liars Wiki, however I am finding that some of that info is not all completely true, and a lot of the articles are stubs. But still, I am a huge PLL fan, obviously lollll sooo, I still adore that wiki. The Twilight wiki and Spongebob wiki are uge, and most  info is true, however on the Twilight wiki, as in the PLL wiki, I am finding many stub articles. So, I think I should make a wiki account and fix em up a bit ;) lol...Lunchtime, will blog later!

Speak Now

Ok, so I know this album came out last year, but I actually ordered my copy from the library way before it came out. I finally got it in late December/early January, so I immediately put it on my iPod. I never really had a chance to listen to all of the songs until today. Well, they are AMAZING! Of course I'd listened to a few of them before, and they'd then became my favorite songs... Speak Now, Haunted, Enchanted, Back to December, Mine...those are seriously the only songs I've listened to on that album. Well, until today, that is. I was in the car and bored so I just pressed shuffle on my iPod, and the first song played was "Sparks Fly" which is now one of my FAVORITE songs on that album. It's so catchy... the others are, too, don't get me wrong, b Sparks Fly is just an all around amazing song. Love it. Another one I heard was Last Kiss, which I didn't really like, it being the exception on the album. It was too slow in my opinion. However, if it had been a slightly faster song, it would have been brilliant. Then there's "The Story of Us' I was so inspired, I made a lyric video and posted it to YouTube! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9T9RM3TCcEw and I have to say, it came out pretty good. Then, there's Innocent, Better than Revenge, Long Live, Never Grow Up, Dear John, Mean...I really liked Dear John...that was a good, catchy one that I would add to my list of favorites. The only ones I didn't like really were Never Grow Up, and Last Kiss. Some slow songs are nice, but those were just a bit too slow for me. Like I said, if they had been sped up a slight bit, they would've been nice. Another thing I really love about these songs is that they have great quotes in them, and I love to tweet them, they make for the perfect quote. I think I should make a Twitter account just for quotes...whadda you think? quotes are something I've been loving recently haha. If you can't tell, go to my Twitter and check who I'm following, most f them are quoters lol. The quotes in the songs from this album are absolutely amazing, and there are so many of them...quite a few in each song, actually. They're all really catchy, I love em. Amazingness. And in the little album booklet thing, Taylor looks absolutely beautiful. No, I didn't buy the album, hard copy or iTunes, but I did look through when I picked it up at the library. I feel like I need to get a hard copy for myself, giggle.  Taylor, I think  for the past 3 years, has come out with a new album about every year...Taylor Swift, Fearless, Speak Now... actually, the line I'm loving in "Speak Now" is "Wearing a gown shaped like a pastry" It's funny to imagine a pastry shaped gown :D lolllll I wanna go dress shopping.... well, anyway, here's the cover of Speak Now...love Taylor's dress haha
Don't you just love the purple shade of that dress? Really pretty color, isn't it? I think that for the dance at my school next year, that is definitely going to be the color dress I will be wearing. that pretty purple, with hints of pinks and blues mixed in. Oh, and I'm typing this at a normal time... it's 6:22 lol. hahahhh. Anyway, love love LOVE this album... Taylor is an amazing singer! Love her forever!

Makeup

I know the topic of this is kindof broad... I'm sorry, it's exactly 3 AM, not exactly wide awake. I think I'll do this in sections... like face, eyes, lips... so let's begin.
FACE: Foundation, concealer, blush, bronzer... all for the face. What is all that stuff anyway? Well... foundation, liquid or powder, is something that you put all over your face. It acts kind of like a "base," and somewhat hides your flaws. Concealer is kindof like foundation. It's more... "precise" if that makes sense... remember, it's 3:03 AM haha. It covers up things like... under eye circles, all that lovliness. Blush... it's usually a pinkish or reddish powder dusted lightly across the cheeks to make you look more rosy? I'm sorry, it's 3:05. Bronzer is the same, but obviously I'm a bronze color. It's designed for you to dust across your cheekbones and on your face all over even - to make you look naturally tan. Face makeup is something that comes in many forms... there's still more... tinted moisturizers.. there's alot of stuff I didn't go over. Face makeup acts as a "base" at least, to me it does. I think it's a good place to start.
EYES: Eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, eye primer. Personally, eye makeup is my favorite. There's so many different colors, and with the right colors, you can make your eyes go with any outfit (ok ik that sounds slightly cheesy...) but it's true. Eyeshadow is usually a powder, but there are cream shadows as well. Eyeshadows, I prefer them pigmented and slightly shimmery. So, you sweep eyeshadow across your eyelids, up to your browbone... there's not really a right or wrong way to do eyeshadow. I love the stuff. Then, eyeliner is a fun thing to play with. Gel, kohl, pencil. So many different forms. You can use eyeliner as eyeshadow, to create a wing, or simply to line your tightline, waterline, lashlines, etc. It makes your eyes really "pop" I think, and comes in various colors. You can also use it to highlight the inner corner, for example NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk. Mascara. This is one of my favs. You put mascara on your lashes, and usually, it helps emphasize them and make them bigger and more volumious. Love. Eye primer. Just a base, really. Helps your shadow stay longer. Not mandatory, but reccomended for crease proof shadow that will last.
LIPS: Lipstick, lipbalm, lipgloss, lipliner. All lip products. Personally, my favorite is lipgloss, so let's start off with that. Lipgloss is obviously, a gloss worn on your lips. It moisturizer them, as well as sometimes adds color and shine. Love it. Lipstick. Not as moisturizing, more opaque color. Variety of colors from pink to red to purple or even blue! Not that that is common haha. Lipbalm. Most moisturizing. Usually colorless, well, with the exception of tinted lipbalm haha. Just a balm. Nothing special. Lipliner. Kind of like eyeliner. But you fill in your lips with it. Lipliners come in most shades lipsticks do, and it kindof acts like a base for the lipstick. Not necessary, but many people like it.
BODY/NAILS: Body shimmer, body butter, nail polish, etc. Body shimmer. A shimmery powder you dust on your body... to make it kore shimmery, obv! Hah. Body butter... A super moisturizing "butter" like substance for your body, w/o the grease. Lol. Nail polish... lawyer for your nails! <333
Makeup isn't to cover up your flaws, it's meant to enhance your natural beauty.

I'm flipping out because I can't find my phone!

The title says it all. So it's 2:29 AM and I found it hard to sleep, decided to blog. This might be somewhat rant like... but I can't find my phone! Let's tell the story... so I went to bed at about 10, then texted Annie (yea, formerly Spencer) til about 11:05. Then I fell asleep on my phone, which is kindof normal for me lol. I'd been texting pretty much all day, so the battery was pretty much dead. I plugged my phone into the charger, before I fell asleep, then texted Annie, like I said, til about 11:05. Then I just could not sleep. I slep til about 2ish, then woke up, looking for my phone, and freaked out when it wasn't in the charger. So where the heck is my phone?!?! I've tried everything. I've sent myself texts, using Textfree app, I've tweeted myself... of course, it wouldn't help that a) my phone is on silent, and b) this room is too dark to see anything because hey, it's 2AM. No, don't freak out, it's actually February break so it's not a school night. But I NEED my phone! What if one of my friends texts me? What if it's an emergency and someone has to reach me? What am I supposed to do then? I need to find my phone, wherever it may be! Yea, I've tried using my iPod screen as a flashlight! And obv, when it's on silent, it won't buzz or anything, but the screen still should light up! And it didn't... did my phone turn off? I lose my phone too many times. I'll prob have my sis help me in the morning, as she is great at finding lost phones, I've learned from experience ;) Luckily. I cannot have totally lost it... has to be in this room, because I never took it out! Where would it have gone? Like that's the thing about phones. They need to be small and portable, yet big enough so you don't lose them easily. My phone is quite average size, and that's not that big. So I'm sorry if this entry seemed a little strange and awkward to you... remember, it's 2:40 AM now! Hahah. I'll let you know on Twitter when I find my phone (:

Nail polish!

OPI, China Glaze, Essie... all brands of nail polish, one if my favorite things. I can't stand plain nails. Theyre just so.... plain lol. My nails are almost always painted, even if they have a chip or 2 in them. Right now I'm wearing Pure Ice "Iced Merlot" it's a really pretty purply red color. It was only $2 at Walmart, and hasn't chipped yet. My little sister also got one that's pretty too. I really would like to be more spontaneous when it comes to nail polish color... I tend to go for darker colors as opposed to brights or neons. It's one of my New Year Resolutions. I really would like to try MAC Soiree, a super metallic gold color, and then China Glaze's pool party, a bright neon coral pinkish color. Of course, I really would like to try bright oranges or blues, something different, like opaque lime green. Today, I went shopping and bought a new color. It's by Del Sol, and quite similar to Pure Ice "Iced Merlot" however, it changes to purple when you're outside! How awesome is that? Another thing I'd like to do is try out some new brands, maybe drugstore brands this time, like Pure Ice and Sally Hansen. I'd like to try being more spontaneous when it comes to nail art, too. Like, putting polka dots on w a homemade dotting tool or maybe splurging on those nail polishes with the really thin brushes. Of course, I already have Sally Hansen nail art pens. I actually did a review on YouTube. They're pretty good, but you have to apply when your bails are COMPLETELY DRY or it ruins everything. I learned that the hard way. Nails are like art. Another thing I really have been wanting to try out was water marbling. I have a few different colors that would look good together... Pure Ice "Iced Merlot," OPI "Take the Stage," NYC Big Money Frost"... I actually did try that out once, and it didn't exactly go that wel, but then again, I was kindof impatient that day lol. Different designs on nails are awesome, especially when nails are art... I love art. Manis and pedis are amazing! Reccomendations any polishes? Leave a comment below (:

Music + bad words = bad mix

I can't stand when a song has a bad word in it. It annoys me soooo much... Avril Lavigne's "What the H---" and P!nk's "F----- Perfect" are just 2 examples of reallllly good songs that are ruined by cuss words. Ugh why do those artists put bad words in such good songs? It drives me crazy. But the thing is, most songs without a bad word are for little kids, or old people. No offense. Well, with the exception of like, Taylor Swift. But other than that, pretty much all good songs have a bad word somewhere in them. Then, when that song is stuck in your head, you nd up singing along to it, and without noticing, those words just happen to slip out of your mouth. What's wrong here??? I hate hate HATE when that happens, because then you don't realize what you've said until someone tells you what you said, and usually, the situation isn't good. It especially is bad when those words are in the titl. Because then, when you try and be a nice sister and let your siblings borrow your iPod, they see that song with the bad word in the title, then yoyu get in trouble for buying a song with a bad word on iTunes. What really sucks is hat those songs are amazing. Like, beyond amazing. Why is it that those songs are always my favorites???? Amazingness in those songs, yet bad words. It's all screwy.

My Obsession With TWITTER! ♥

This is probably gonna be pretty short, because I wanted to get a few blog posts out there to make up for the past few days which I have been gone. I just haven't had time to blog... last night was the Father Daughter Dance at my little sisters' school, so me and a friend volunteered to help out. I figured I'd just blog about my newest obsession, which is, Twitter. I LOVE LOVE LOOOVE Twitter. It's like my new favorite website. Hahahhhhh. Love the entire concept, and that I can make my profile private and lock my tweets and all that fun stuff. The website is amazing, if you don't already have a Twitter account, you have no idea what you're missing out on  it's alot. Twitter is just like, you post what you're doing, and there are different accounts set up to tell like, news about Petty Little Liars or teen quotes, or whatever. Twitter is one of those things where you could say... "The greatest thing since sliced bread" It really truly is. Twitter is one of those amazing wows. I have had my Twitter account since mid-late January and I have tweeted almost 800 tweets... 780-ish I'm pretty sure. I just tweet about what I'm doing at the time, and sometimes just random quotes from my favorite songs...like...."It was....enchanting to meet you" from Taylor Swift's song, "Enchanted" which, btw, is a super good song if you haven't already heard it before. Hahahh right now I'm on Twitter, and Playlist, listening to Alejandro lol. I guess that gets my point across about Twitter

A super duper funny story

Hey. So it's 9:42. I'm just lying in bed, bored, texting Spencer Abbott. She already knows the story ur about to read, but anyway, I was super tempted to blog, even though I'm supposed to be in bed hahahhh. So I'm blogging from my iPod, which, I usually am. So here goes a super duper funny story. Btw, my mom knows none of this ever happened lol. Last night, I was using the heat protectant I got over the w/e. There was a protective cover thing on it. It was kindof like a mini hair clip, with a "clamp" type thing. Last night was like, the 3rd time I'd used it. I'd never bothered to throw the hard, plastic clamp type protective seal thingy away, I'd just stuck it back on so my heat protectant wouldn't leak all over my flatiron cover. So, I applied it before blowdrying my hair, then put it back on and blowdried. I straighten my hair every time I wash it. So, I went to take the funny clampy seal type thingy off to put some more in my hair to straighten it, and it goes FLYING! I look everywhere for it but can't seem to find it. (I bet you know where it landed - yep. In the TOILET!) But this thing is too hard and too big to flush w/o clogging the toilet. So that leaves me w 1 option - I have to get it out!!! Ew no, I'm definitely not gonna reach my hand in and grab it. So I call my little sister in, and I'm like, uh, we've got a problem. I point to the toilet, and no, there's no pee or poo in it or anything, thank goodness. Just the funny little sealy thing floating around. She wouldn't be afraid to get it out, probably. So I tell here "wait here" then I race to the kitchen and grab some paper towels and a pink plastic fork. When I get back to the bathroom, I place some paper towels on the floor, then hand the pink plastic fork to my sister. So, she takes the fork and scoops up the funny little sealy thingy! Then she throws it on the paper towels. I shriek and jump back, and she's all calm, and then, as "revenge" makes me pick it up and throw it out. Oh, great. So using several paper towels as layers of gloves, I grab the disgusting fork and the funny plastic sealy thingy and race to the trash. Of course, I drop it along the way, and it nearly touches my foot, but luckily, I jump back just in time. Ew. So I make it to the trash, finally. And that story is over. And yes, it is 100%. true! Not altered one little bit. Hahah if you wanna read my sisters blog, go to http://www.peaceypenguin.blogspot.com and follow her - but be warned - she has a crazy obsession for her Webkinz lol! But hey, she got out my funny plastic sealy thing when I needed it out of the toilet. Thanks, little sis!

Dentists, French Bees, Origami Roses, Music, and Pretty Little Liars!

Bonjour. Salut. Hola. Ciao. Hello. Hi. Hahahhhhhh my dentist appointment was actually ok. She just examined my mouth, and then put new elastic thingys on that funny appliance thingy in my mouth. And the girl who did it I really liked. She's super nice. Sad news is, I need 3 teeth pulled out, and 1 of them is actually loose. I bet if I tried, I could get it out by then!!! Haha. Next thing is, I'm in the French bee tmrw!!! Yeayyy! 3 peeps w the top numerical grades from each hmrm r in the bee, and that includes me :) Awesomeness. I think I need to study some more. Hahahhh origami roses! OMG I finally did it! Thanks RobH0629! Love his tutorials. You should seriously go check em out. I'll post a pic later if I can, mine'as actually somewhat decent. Well, besides the fact that the entire thing is white, but other than that...well, actually, I had to tape it, because my bottom was super loose and the stem kept falling out. Haha. I think I'm gonna try and make another... I've learned the secret to good origami - PATIENCE! If you're not patient, you won't go too far, at least, in the world of origami. Thennnn, there's MUSIC! One of my fav things in life, after friends, fam, shopping, texting.... hahahhh. I've discovered some super awesome songs. 2 that I haven't mentioned in the entry where I listed 50 fav songs. These 2 songs would be.... Hey Baby by Pitbull (My friend Sam made a video to it on YouTube - lexnsamxx, you should go check it ojut! And subscribe, pretty please??) and then, F**kin Perfect by P!nk. I don't know why songs have to have bad words in their titles. It really bugs me. Because then, I'm not technically allowed to buy them, but yet they're SO AMAZINGLY AWESOME!!! Hahahhhh and then I'm debating whether or not to buy the Pretty Little Liars album on iTunes... I don't know if it just came out? Because I'd never heard of it til today...and then again, I only have about $11 on my iTunes account.... I spend money fast when it comes to music lmbo...let's review all the things I've bought since Christmas...Eclipse movie, Ke$ha Animal/Cannibal Album, Teenage Dream by Katy Perry, What the H*ll by Avril Lavigne, Last Friday Night by Katy Perry... and then, of course, I'm debating whether or not to buy Born This Way, by Lady Gaga. A little weird, but super good at the same time... in a really weird way hahaha. I really need to catch up on my PLL. I haven't seen the last 3 eps... which I CANNOT BELIEVE! Thank goodness they upload em online!!! <3 you, ABC Fam!!! I am starting to like Toby a little more though...hmmm....as Spencer Abbott (sparkleshinebeautify) said, he's become super likable. And I know I've mentioned this person before, but if you are a fan of Pretty Little Liars, you HAVE to go sub to Moon351on YouTube! Uploads of scenes of couples on PLL. For example... Pretty Little Liars 1x17 The New Normal Aria and Ezra scenes, etc. Sooooo good. Thanks so much!!! And then, a shoutout to Spencer!!! Hahahhhhhh based on what was said in her second to last entry, <#### you too, Spence! xoxo! Go check out and follow her blog... http://www.sparkleshinebeautify.blogspot.com/ - she blogs about beauty, fashion, PLL, and randomness! <3333

Haha guess that's all, cuz I gotta go study for a French bee, French quiz, math quiz (well, technically it's pre-algebra, which is 10x worse...), geog test...this is gonna be a busy week :)

xo,
Ali <333

Happy Valentine's Day! Chocolates, cute boys, and origami!

Happy Valentines Day! It's that time of year again! The day which Cupid symbolizes (you know, the short, chubby toddler wearing nothing but a diaper and wings ;) hahahhh. Obviously, Valentines Day means looooove. Giggle. Not gonna talk much about that, because if I did then a) It'd be super duper awkward and b) I'd just embarrasss myself, and that is NOT an option on a public blog like mine. So I'd like to stay off that topic, and focus on something yummy. Chocolate! I'm not quite a chocaholic, although yes, I do love chocolate, because HELLO!!! Who doesn't ADORE chocolate?? Well ok, I prefer red velvet... but anyway. Chocolate. And strawberries. Let's put this as an equation: Chocolate + Strawberries = Love! And if it's milk chocolate with a white chocolate drizzle, or white chocolate with milk chocolate drizzle, even better! When it comes to food, I am a perfectionist, especially with the appearance and taste of the food. And what looks better or tastes yummier than chocolate covered strawberries? NOTHING! And then of course, there's caramel. One word. Yum. Ok, not as yum as the chocolate covered strawberries, but still absolutely amazing. Except, it's super sticky. But anyway, chocolate is yum. I really like fudge swirl ice cream - my dessert today - topped with strawberries! What's better??? Yea, didn't think anything was. Now. The awkward subject haha. Cute boys. Well, and hot ones, too (: but most of the guys I know are more cute than they are hot, teehee. Ok. Whenever I think of Valentines Day, "love" is the first word that pops into my mind. The two are like day and night. They go together. So, I mean, what is there to say that I don't mind saying publicly, about cute boys... hmm that's a hard one. Well obviously they're cute? Hahahh anyway I guess not much. I'm sad that there aren't many cute boys in my classes this year. Just 3 hahahhhh. Hope one of those 3 isn't reading this ;) and then, there's origami. Which, FYI, my fav origami guy is RobH0629 from YouTube... if you're into origami and haven't yet subscribed to him, you should. I'm going to be talking about 2 designs in particular - the beating heart, and the rose. The beating heart I made. Ok fine, at 10:00 last night when I was supposed to be in bed... but Rob makes it super easy to follow along. My heart came out absolutely amazing! I love it! Even though I used white paper because I had no red printer paper hahahh. And then there's the rose. Oh, the rose. Now, there are definitely easier ways of doing the rose (like, one of those cute boys I mentioned earlier made one for me :D) but I love the one that Rob can make. Ice tried 3 or 4 times now, and failed every time. The rose is definitely an advanced model, as Rob mentioned in his video. I figured I'd try it out. I'm currently in the process of trying for the 5th time now, and it's coming out pretty good - in fact, it's been getting better and better each time. I'm really hoping it works, because this rose looks so amazingly realistic. Of course, it doesn't help that I'm using white printer paper. I think it would look a mil times better in red, but unfortunately I don't have red computer paper. Oh well. I'll have to ask for some for my bday. You should really go check out Rob though. Amazingness! Like, THE origami master hahahhh. What else did I want to mention... oh yea! I wanted to do some shoutouts (YouTube) and I've picked 4 username. They are... (drumroll please ;) lexnsamxx, lexnsamxx2, beautyisourthing, jenlexsamannie. Okay yea, my friend Sam is a part of all of em lol. But still. They're like, my bffls, so PLEASE do me a huge favor and go subscribe. You'll enjoy the vids, I promise. Hahahhhh. Well I guess I'd better go to bed. I'm not supposed to be blogging lol but oh well, I am anyway. Hahah. Love you, and I hope you and your - ahem - special someone - if you have one - enjoyed your Valentines Day, and that is was full of loooooooove.

xo,
Ali (who is dreading the dentist appt she has tmrw)

I'm such a procastinator, and also a Twitterholic... and a lover of TRESemme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray!

I guess that this is gonna be short... ok no, it's gonna be super duper long. Hahahhhhhh because I'm such a procastinator!!!!!! Hehehhhh I'm supposed to be doing my incredibly hard science homework, physics to be exact, and studying for the physics test. But no. Because I am procastinating right now, I am blogging rather than doing all of those things. Giggle. Homework is definitely not one of my favorite things (Je n'aime pas les devoirs) There, ya see? I just started practicing for the French bee, which is Thursday. It's kindof cool to be doing this French bee thing, because our French teacher chose 3 students with the best numerical grades from each homeroom. and oh yea, I'm one of the bestest. Which, btw, I hate going against my friends in things such as I'm going against my guy friend in this one. Haha. Still procastinating, still, still... oh yea, because this homework is long and hard and boring, and I haven't even done #1 yet, even though I know the answer - gravity - duh!!! But I have not a clue for what the answers for qs 2-4 would be lol. Yeah, there's only 4 questions, and I only know the answer to one of them. Well, hope I don't fail the test. Good thing I did the extra credit, which was to make one of those Cartesion diver things, which, I did today, using an empty 2 L Sprite bottle, water, and then a ketchup packet (Thanks, Dunkin Donuts, for the ketchup with my breakfast this morning lol) well anyway, I just answered #1. See, usually I never procastinate at school, but when it come time to do homework, I am the biggest procastinator ever. Haha. Well ok, I'm not done with #1. But I did half of it!!! I hate short answer questions....the test had better be multiple choice! Hahahhhh well anyway...let's talk about something fun. Twitter! Oh yea, I'm such a Twitterholic :) Hahahhhh every single da since I've had my Twitter, I've tweeted, I'm pretty sure, at least 3x a day...I've had my account since late January 2011. So I guess you could say I'm pretty new to Twitter. But yet, I'm in LOVE! Like, favorite website ever! Well, ok, tied with Blogger and YouTube. But you get my point. I absolutely love the concept of Twitter and "tweeting" so whoever came up with it, kudos to you! Great job. Well done. So besides being a procastinator and a Twitterholic, I am also a lover of TRESemme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray. I used it for the very first time today, and I'm already in LOVE with the stuff! Besides smelling amazing, this stuff not only protects your hair from heat, but also (I've noticed an improvement, anyway) keeps my hair smooth and non-frizzy. And, it was only $3 and change, for 8 oz. Is that not a good deal?!?!? if you're looking for a good heat protectant, this product is for you ♥

"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass... it's about learning to dance in the rain"

OMG. Like my fav quote ever, just randomly hahah. One thing that I love is inspirational quotes...no wonder I'm following so many of those quoter people on Twitter. A good quote says everything...quotes are like, the best! That happens to be my favorite quote, which I just discovered on Blair Fowler's latest post. That happens to be my fave!!! http://www.blairfowler.blogspot.com/ fyi. Either way, what's your favorite quote? If I were ever to do a contest on YouTube my question would be something like, "What is your favorite inspirational quote any why?" Lol I'll have to do a contest sometime soon haha. Anyway, quotes say so much, all in one little quote. They're like their own little fable...well, ok, not really, but both a quote and a fable have a moral. Quotes would be an awesome thing to put in your room above your bed...ok, yeah, that was juicystar07's idea. I got this picture from her blog, but I just think this room is absolutely perfect! UIf only my room looked like this (ok, with a teeny tiny bit of purple added in hahahh)


I like this quote as well. It's a classic quote... who doesn't like a classic quote?!?! There are a ton of other good ones out there as well. If you have a Twitter, you HAVE to follow @OMGwhatateen
(www.twitter.com/OMGwhatateen) these tweets aren't really quotes, more things that most teens do...I RT them alllll the time lol. Then you should follow The Notebook for some good quotes as well. Who doesn't love a good quote?!

Red velvet EVERYTHING (:

Someone: "Whats your favorite cake flavor?"
Me: "Red velvet"
Someone: "Whats you're favorite food?"
Me: "Red velvet whoopie pies"
Someone: "What flavor will you're wedding cake be?"
Me: "Red velvet with cream cheese icing"

Yea, I love, love, LOOOOVE red velvet. Favorite thing ever. Not only is it delicious, but it's more than just delicious (if that makes sense lol) red velvet anything is my favorite food in the whole world. I absolutely adore red velvet. My favorite! If you come to my wedding someday, I can guarantee the cake probably will be red velvet with either cream cheese or buttercream icing. Just one word - YUMMMM! What's weird is that even though red velvet is similar to chocolate, I usually don't eat chocolate cupcakes, I love red velvet (as if you didn't already know that haha;) but anyway, its hard to describe what makes red velvet so good. The flavor, maybe??? Idk. It's delicious, and if you haven't tried it, OMG YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOURE MISSING OUT ON. Yummylicious (: Red velvet whoopie pies, of course, are even better than red velvet cupcakes in my opinion. The ULTIMATE food I think. If I could only eat 1 food for the rest of my life, red velvet whoopie pies would be it.

I am not the most "responsible" person you'll ever meet...

I lose almost anything and everything. I've lost my cell phone too many times to count, my iPod I've lost a few times, my favorite penguin bookmark, my lipgloss... give me something, I probably will lose it. At some point or another. Well luckily, so far I've found all of those things. Well, not my FAVORITE BOOKMARK EVER (hahah) and then, my favorite lipgloss (both of which I lost just this week, the bookmark yesterday, the lipgloss today) and I'm hoping that both will show up soon. I lost my super cool penguin bookmark yesterday. Sadly. Can't find it, ahhh! It was adorable too! Ughhh so mad. Hahah it may seem Luke just a bookmark. That was my favorite one though. And then my awesome lipgloss - Lancôme Juicy Tubes :( and it smelled realllly good, so that kinda sucks. Of course, yesterday I also lost the USB for my camera. So that means no more videos on YouTube til I find it. Ahhh. If you've ever met me in real life, I don't seem like the type to lose things. But, if you know my well enough, like peaceypenguin hahah, then you know I lose things ALL THE TIME! Im the type of person that if we're doing classwork, and the teacher says "Give it to someone on you're group who won't lose it," I'm always the one who it's given too. Luckily, I'm actually pretty responsible when it comes to schoolwork. It's just things like lipgloss and cell phones. Which suckkkkss for me!!!! Ughhh. Anywayyy, because I'm a positive person... I thought I'd include a few quotes I've gotten off Twitter...

@OMGwhatateen
"I'm so good at sleep, I can even do it with my eyes closed. Yeah, I'm legit."

"I'm fluent in 3 languages - English, Sarcasm, and Profanity."


Hahahhhhh <3. If you aren't following them, you really should. Awesome.

Shopping. (Shop•ping) Noun: Ali's favorite pasttime!

Oh don't you love my creative titles hahah. Lol. So I had a half day for parent teacher confrences (yeayyy) so I went shopping w two of my friends (yeayyy) hahah most of the things on my list I didn't get, sadly. But anyway. I shall list the items I purchased. And no, I am not trying to brag. Okkkkk...
1) Shirt at Abercrombie Kids. It's a white v-neck tee, with roses and little silver gems. Sooo pretty! Absolutely loooove that. Hahah it's a bit tight since it's a medium, but hey, it still fits pretty decently.
2) Sunglasses at Forever 21. Sooo awesome! Almost every time I've bought new sunglasses, they've either broken, or they got too small. So I really needed sunglasses, and I finally bought some. First of all they're HUGE! I love big, oversized things... rings, necklaces, headbands, sunglasses, whatever. So my glasses are awesomeness.
3) Bath & Body Works PocketBac in "I Love Shoes". The scent is called Stylish Strawberry. Smells amazing, not to mention I absolutely love the name.
4) Bath & Body Works PocketBac in "Peach Bellini". Smells amazingggg! I love, love, LOOOVE tropical, fruity scents. So I think that was absolutely perfect! Smells awesome x 1,000,000. It's one of my fav B&BW scents ever.
5) I got a charm bracelet at Claire's. I went with my 2 friends, so we got a set of those 3 way best friends charm bracelets. Mine has a little ice cream cone on it. So cute!

So yeah, I only bought 5 things. I think it came to $20 something, which isn't bad. I sooo wish I could've gotten a few more things though... a new bathing suit, MAC Kissable Lipcolour, and of course, heat protectant. And more lol. I'm such a shopaholic (:

I'm so mad that I forgot to get a prize for my giveaway...hmm... I'll have to try and get something this w/e?!?! Idk if I'm even doing this giveaway. I think I should though. Because it's my way of saying...

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR 100 SUBSCRIBERS ON YOUTUBE! YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST SUBBIES EVER! LOVE YOU ;) XOXO

My food fears and dislikes!

Awhile back, well, a few days ago, actually, I posted an entry called "I'm a foodie" and talked about my love of food! Well of course, I don't like every single food out there, in fact, I'm scared of some. Yes, I know my list is long, but I just can't stand these foods.
1) Mushrooms. Or rather, fungus. This is my worst food fear. Even when they grow in the grass, I can't help but be terrified of mushrooms. They creep me out. I used to cry if one of my sisters chased me w a mushroom. And then hide in the bathroom, w the door locked.
2) Salad. Yes, I hate salad. I can't stand salad. That's probably because I hate vegetables. Well, except corn. And potatoes. And sometimes asparagus. But salad is gross. And eating it with dressing just makes it a heck of a lot more disgusting.
3) Guacamole. Ew. Absolutely ew. First of all, the stuff looks like moldy puke. It's so thick and gross and a disgusting texture. Just plain ew.
4) Fish. And most seafood. I don't eat seafood - it's awful. It tastes too rich for me. Yes, lobster is somewhat ok, not the greatest, but I'm just not a fish eater! But hey, at least I'm not eating the little fishies. And being a fisherman is one of the most dangerous jobs in the world, btw! So I think of this as doing the world a favor.
5) Donuts. I have a BIG story on why I absolutely hate donuts. And it's disgusting too. I think I'll blog about my little story in my next post. But donuts, ever since that little incident, are a big fat NO for me.
6) Liver. Ok, I've never tried liver, I admit. But I've heard plenty of stories on how disgusting it is. And would you want to eat a liver? Does it sound too appetizing?!?! I think not. I say no.
7) Pickles. I'm sorry, Spencer Abbott (http://www.sparkleshinebeautify.blogspot.com) but I really hate pickles. Spencer on the other hand is in love. I personally think pickles taste too sour, and I prefer sweeter things. Pickles just aren't my thing. Even those sweet pickles.
8) Mustard. I can't stand mustard! Ew. Horrible taste. That is all.

That was just 8... of course, I hate many more foods, but if I explained ever single one of them, that list never would've ended. Let's see what I can name off the top of my head... mayo, dressing, chowder, black licorice, green olives, brocolli, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, salami, raisins, cranberries, cucumbers, bananas, tomatoes, lamb, veal, nuts, and TONS more! Haha I'm not at all saying I'm a picky eater. Because there are tons of foods I love. Red velvet for example. Red velvet anything pretty much... cupcakes, cake, whoopie pies, well, not red velvet pickles or anything hahah but you get my point teehee.

That's all I had to say. Hopefully I will be blogging about my donut story very soon. <3 u.

Shoutouts... to WEBSITES!

Hey! I thought it would be cool to do some shoutouts...to WEBSITES! I'm a huuuge techie, so of course I love the computer. Obviously, I don't spend my time on just 1 website all the time. I'm gonna give a "shoutout" to some of my favs, and a brief synopsis of each! Go check em out!

1. YouTube. Well duh! I LOVE YouTube! I hope you guys know what YouTube is, but if you (gasp!) if you don't, it's a video sharing website! Awesome x 10. Check me out at www.youtube.com/hersheykiss723
http://www.youtube.com/

2. Blogger. This one was kindof a given. If you're reading this, you've arrived at my BLOG! Whichn was made using Blogger. FYI, in case you have noidea what it is (which you should), Blogger is just a website that allows you to make your very own blog! Love!
http://www.blogger.com/

3. Twitter. Lately, I've been a Twitter FREAK! Love Twitter, and I've been tweeting as much as I can lately. I've also been RTing. Haha on Twitter, you can share your thought's and what you're doing, but don't worry, you can make your Twitter private. Like I did. Btw, I'm @hersheykiss723
http://www.twitter.com/

4. Playlist! This website is like my life! Music, music, music! You can play almost any song you can think of, for free. Yep, that's right. For FREE! Make an account, and you can make a playlist, and even share it with your friends who also have playlist accounts.
http://www.playlist.com/

5. ABC Family Pretty Little Liars. Aka the official site of one of my OBSESIONS! Hahah on this amazing site, you can browse through pictures of the cast, read blogs, take polls, learn about the actors/actresses, and my personal favorite, watch clips of next weeks episode and FULL EPISODES! Any PLL ep I've missed, I can trust this official site to upload it, so I can sit back and enjoy.
http://abcfamily.go.com/shows/pretty-little-liars/?&pollgrouping=437801&choice=8824

6. Elf Yourself! This is my favorite Christmas website ever. You can put you and your friends' faces onto the body of an elf, then watch a hilarious video, and of course share it w your friends through email. Amazing! Of course, this is a Christmas only website. (Sadly, only available around Christmas time)
http://www.elfyourself.com/

7. Yahoo. This one's a classic. Yahoo. It's basically like a home page type thing...like MSN, Aol, whatever else. There's mail, news, weather, kids, messenger, sports, you name it, they got it. Personally, I love Yahoo, and you probably will too.
http://www.yahoo.com/

8. Seventeen. Now, as you know, Seventeen is one of my favorite magazines, so logically, the website would hav to be one of my favs too. Found on here are quizzes, games, beauty, fashion, and love advice, and a whole lot more! Check it out now!
http://www.seventeen.com/

Do you guys think 8 is enough?!?!? I do, hahah! Of course, those aren't the only 8 I can be found on, but those are just some faves!

♥,
Ali

YOUTUBEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

Ok, so I guess I should blog to make up for the 2 days that I missed. I guess I should blog about YouTube, because it's like, my pride and joy. Jk lol. But anyway, I have 98 subbies, trying to get to 100! So if you know anyone that would be happy to subscribe, tell them about my channel! I thank every one of my subscribers for supporting me on YouTube! Thanks so much! ♥ xo! Once I get to 100, I really feel like I should do a giveaway! I'm not positive about this, but I was thinking that I could pick up a few prizes on Wednesday when I go shopping :) What would you guys like the prizes to be??? Of course, there has to be a few rules, also, and what you have to do to be entered in the contest!!! I was thinking either you would have to make a video response, or post a comment answering a question that I give to you.... I don't think I'll just do enter me, it seems too easy. So as of now, I was thinking, "What's your favorite spring fashion?" or something along those lines. Of course, every contest or giveaway has rules, so here are mine:
♥ You must be a subscriber. I will be checking!
♥ You must be over 18 or have permission to give out your mailing address.
♥ You must comment only once with the answer to my question. Anyone who comments more than once will be disqualified.
♥ The contest is only open in the United States.

Hmmm...I guess that's just a rough draft. I don't even know if I'll be doing this thing. It depends if I can get my hands on some cool prizes...I was thinking... nail polish maybe? Or some cute jewelry from Forever 21? Of course, I'll also subscribe to the winner, give them a shoutout, feature them in my next STL video, and box them for a month! I really hope I am able to do this, because it would definitely be super exciting to do my first giveaway! Comment and let me know what you think!

xo,
Ali

Super Bowl Sunday and YOUTUBE!

I've started to procastinatre very slightly when it comes to blogging. Just a teeny bit. Like, I didn't blog yesterday. Or the day before. And the day before that was a super short entry. Whatevs. I'm gonna try and get back on track with my blogging. So anyway, today is Super Bowl Sunday, the Green Bay Packers vs. Pittsburgh Steelers! Honestly, I'm thinking that the Steelers will win, and for some reason, I keep thinking they're gonna win by 3. I'm not exactly the biggest sports fan, but I'm just hoping for the Steelers. Idk why. Just am.

Right now as I'm typing, I'm also uploading my first STL video, so look out for that!!! Speaking of YouTube, I almost have 100 subscribers! I'm thinking of doing a giveaway once I reach 100! What do you think would be a cool prize??? Let me know, because I'm 3 away from 100 currently!!! Thanks so much to my lovely subscribers! When my STL video uploads, you guys really should check out the cool girls mentioned in the video! You guys will love their videos! If you wanna be mentioned in my next Share the Love, either comment and subscribe, or make me love, love, LOVE your vids! Everyone mentioned in this weeks is either a subscriber, or their videos are awesome! Currently my video is 83% saved, then it has to upload, and should take less than 5 minutes!

Since I haven't blogged in a bit, I feel like this entry should be a little l;onger. So I guess I'll talk about Seventeen magazine, my favorite magazine of all time (though Glamour comes in at a close second) but anyway, my issue of Seventeen came in the mail yestrday, and I'm absolutely loving it!v I finished reading, cover to cover, last night, and I love it, especially the cover, which is super pretty! I love blue, pink, and purple together!!! And Miranda looks flawless, too!!!! The article on p 126 is interesting as well...

I mean, there's not alot to talk about, I guess that's why I've been procastinating. So I guess I'll be blogging after watching tomorw's new ep of PLL..."Je Suis Un Amie" which is perfect, because...J'adore le francais, et j'adore le Pretty Little Liars! Perfect combo lol!

WellI guess I'll ttyl, don't forget to check me out on YouTube and Twitter! (And my little sisters blog - http://www.peaceypenguin.blogspot.com/)

I'm a foodie!

If there's one thing you should know about me, it's that I'm a MAJOR foodie! Loooove, love, love! Luckily, I have a high metabolism lol. Food is on my list of Top 10 Favorites in life, and not just because it's one of the three things humans need to survive! Food is like, amazing x 1000! I am absolutely in love with the stuff! I love international foods, or, cultural foods, I guess you could call it - Chinese, Italian, Mexican, you name it, and more likely than not I like it. As I type this, I'm actually munching on some pretzels (hahah) Could you think of a better way to start of this entry than to name some awesome foodies? Let's do it - Emeril Lagasse, Alton Brown, Buddy Valastro... that's only to name a few. One of my all time favorites would have to be Buddy Valastro and Emeril Lagasse. They're tied at first place for my all time fav chef. They're both awesome. I'm sure you've seen the Emeril Show at some point or another...and does his food look delicious or what?!?! I'd love to indulge in some of his work! All so yummy looking! Then there's Buddy Valastro, w his new show Kitchen Boss! (You prob know him from Cake Boss, I'm sure) but his food looks delish all the time! Like how does he do that?!?! Looks sooooo amazingly yum! So I guess I'll tell you some of my fav foods - I don't really have a favorite, it all depends on what I'm craving. I really enjoy chicken parm, and most definitely Chinese noodles. What's funny, is if I'm sick, I'm always craving oranges, or at least something juicy and citrusy. Don't ask why. I dint know, either! One of my biggest ambitions is to become a chef. I don't just mean any chef. I mean I wanna be featured on an episode of Top Chef, or perhaps be a future iron chef. I've always loved cooking. Food is something to indulge in! And OMG, I feel like I should tell you about the best burger I've ever had. It was delish. Okay, this burger, which I had at a restaurant inside The Four Seasons hotel, was heaven. It was lovely. The burger was so hot, juicy, and cooked PERFECTLY. It had the right amount of every flavoring and every spice, making it the best burger! It was soooo amazing, and I wished I had ordered 2, even though the burger left me feeling full and satisfied. Yum!

Tell me your food story!!! I think I'll blog next about my food fears and dislikes!

My #1 dislike!!!

Compared to my other posts, this one is a bit shorter, sorry! y #1 dislike: the dentist. Every time I know I have a dentist appt, it really irks me. Okay, yea, I'm scared of the dentist, I will admit. I guess it's worse when I'm at the orthodontist, but still, to me, both are awful. Horrible. Terrible. It's like a trip to the dentist/orthodontist turns my day into a terrible, horrible, very bad day. I guess I've had a few bad experiences w dentists, and even if I hadn't, going to the dentist would still be terrible, horrible, and very, very bad. So first I think I'll tell you some of my stories. Story #1. The X-RAYS!!! When I was 6 I had a really small-ish mouth hahahh, so whenever I'd go to the x-Ray room at the dentist, I'd FREAK OUT! That little piece of plastic or cardboard or whatever it may be practically choked me to death. And I couldn't breathe or swallow very well. So after that first experience (I prob would've been fine after) I hated x-rays. I guess I really didn't give them a fair shot, but hey, I was 6, and they caused me pain. So I got the x-rays that day, and I haven't had another x-ray until I was like, 11. Lol. Bad memory of dentist #2: the TOOTH EXTRACTIONNNN!!! One of the worst experiences of my life. My tooth needed to be taken out, and so I had this funny orange plastic nose thing to breathe in. It made me a little dizzy, but it was orange scented, and it made relaxing a teensy bit easier (still was very hard) but i also couldn't see what the dentist was doing, which was good. After that, I remember my tooth being realllly bloody and painful, and it took me quite a while to eat normal again. I do remember getting a turquoise Aeropostale tote as a present from my mom that day, and going shopping afterward. That made it a little better. But not alot. Bad experience #3: THE ORTHODONTIST!!! My many trips to the orthodontist are most of my bad experiences. I'm just gonna tell a few though. Like this one - I needed some weird expanded thingy, so I needed to get molds of my teeth done, obviously. This may seem simple, but I'm pretty sure it was the most painful experience of my life, no joke. So I needed 2 molds of my top teeth and 2 of my bottom. The lady who was doing it didn't do anything wrong, I don't think, until the 2nd one on top. I had done all the others. I have, as I learned that day, VERY sensitive gums. She practically shoved the thing in my gums, and even though it was only 1 min 30 secs, the thing absolutely KILLED ME! It hurt sooo sooo much!!! I could've sworn I was gonna die of pain, too. I didn't start crying until she was done, because I was absolutely bewildered. It was AWFUL!!!! Next story!! SPACERS! I never thought a little blue rubber band could cause so much pain and discomfort! It absolutely killed me. I couldn't eat, and couldn't really think straight either. Then, to top it off, when they took the spacer out, there wasn't enough space between 2 of my teeth, so the orthodontist had to CUT OFF A PIECE OF MY TOOTH, to make room! Like what the heck are you doing?!?!! In MY MOUTH?!?!?!?!?! It hurt realllly bad and was bloody and absolutely terrifying. When he did it, he was talking in like dental language, of course, so I had no idea what he was planning on doing. It was bloody and disgusting. Ew. I guess I should end on a good note, too. There are 3 hygenist ladies there that I really do like, actually. They're SUPER NICE and try their best not to hurt me (because they know how much I HATE it there, lol) Theyre like suuupppperrrr nice and talk about Twilight and Pretty Little Liars and shopping in between and while they're working on my mouth. Honestly, I could pretty much guarantee it when they work on my teeth it doesn't hurt as much, during AND after. Of course, all if those stories, yea, those 3 lovely dentists weren't involved. Poo. Btw, all those were 100% TRUE, not altered in the tiniest way. I pinky swear!
