Veteran's Day.


Oh! How I've looked forward to this day off! Not only because it's a day off from shcool in the middle of the week, but I get to relax in my room again. My house recently has been under-construction. The tiles are being replaced in about 75% of the house and my room is included into that percent. On Saturday my stuff had been taken out of my room by the time I got home at 10pm. This meant that everything that I had plaed in a certain placed was now shoved into a big plastic bag.


I had not realized what that had meant until today. I've spent most of the morning putting everything back into my room. There is so many little things that have their specific place, and it has been a little difficult putting everything back.

I was SO excited to be back. Having my bed in the middle of the living room, and sleeping there, was no fun. Not only that but I ha no room. No private sector that I called my own. Instead I had my mom's dining room table to do my hw on.

This morning to make time pass by (since I woke up at my usual time: 5am), I watched Avatar once again. This movie is so beautiful and everytime I watch it really makes me feel guilty for having so many things, especially technology. Pandora is such a beautiful place. The colors of that planet are magical. I remember the first time I saw it, my eyes just couldn't believe how magical that place was.




I have a lot to do today, but I'm going to take my time to do it. I can't wait 'til the weekend! I might post more entries later on in the day. Bye for now.

NEW CAMERA.


Yes, I got a new camera and I had to share this great moment in my blog! I've been waiting for this momment for quite a while. I've been promised to get it but have been let down too many times. Today, however, I went to Best Buy without any hope of getting it or even to ask for it, and walked out with this new babyy! <33

I'm as happy as could be! I hope to have a blast taking photos with it :D Can't wait!

I hope everyone is having a safe and fun Memorial Day weekend!

Apple Wishlist

Anyone notice how Apple has taken over so much of our electronics. I have got to say, I love the brand. If I could, I would have everything Apple. But living in a Windows friendly world its very uncomfortable to have one. With everyone loving Windows because it is all around us, not everyone is happy when you say, "I'm going to get a MacBook !".

Yesterday was the release of the much anticipated iPad. I honestly, do not have much interest in it. If I had the money to get I would, though. However, it's something I don't need. The price of this new product is ridiculous. To buy the iPad the starting price is at $499. However, with data plans being added by the end of the month, the people who buy this will have to pay even more for this luxury. The data plans are very costly. With the lowest at $130, and the most expensive at $829. In my opinion this is too much if you consider all the other things you pay for.

Mac, finds so many ways to make their money. I do give them that they don't have as many problems as Windows does. I also think they make incredible products. I'm such a huge Apple fan, but I just think their prices are just too high. I've wanted so many of their products. But me, I'll be holding on to my iPod Video for now.


Here is my Apple Wishlist (not in order):



  • MacBook - Probably one of my top choices for laptops. I'll probably be getting one this year or the next. I still need to do my research on whether this laptop is what I'm looking for. This is another item that is very pricey, with lowest at $999 and the highest at $1499.




  • iPhone - It seems that everyone has one of these, or wants one that looks like this. There are so many phones these days that are touch screen that are competing with this product. Yet, I only find this one appealing. I don't like having imitations of things and if its only going to cost $100 more to buy this, then might as well invest in something that's going to be better. The price of these phones are actually not that bad. The lowest is $99, highest is $299. This is also, without the phone plans. So you're going to spend even more on it(like every other Apple product). P.s. - Did you know Sprint and Verizon might soon sell these phones?






  • iPad - Of course. What would my list be without the new Apple craze? Yes, I do want one of these huge iTouch looking devices. As ridiculous as their prices (and size) might be, I'm actually interested in one of these, babies. However, I'm in no rush to get one.






As appealing as these products are too me, I don't need all of these items. In fact, I don't need any of these because I have a computer that works and a phone that makes calls. So unless any of the two fail me THEN, and only then, will I consider getting one of these. But until then I will admire them from a distance.


Let me know your opinion on Apple products, or your experience with any of them.:)

Spring Favorites Part 1

So, it's April already and of course I'm still on Spring Break. I haven't gotten much accomplished seeing as I'm a huge procrastinator. So I'll keeping wasting more of my time on this blog.
First off, today is my best friend's birthday (Hi, Monica.. my only subscriber for now). I actually got her to start a blog too, YAY! :D
This post is going to be about what I think is good for the Spring time. Whether it be makeup or clothes. I love sharing stuff like this with people, and I hope you enjoy my suggestions.
FACE:
I suggest wearing something lighter than you would during the winter. A tinted moisturizer or a light-weight foundation would be great. Also, start using moisturizer (especially one with SPF. Since you're going to be spending more time out in the sun, anything that has SPF is VERY important to wear!

My Fav Face Product:
Neutrogena Glow Cheers

EYES:
Going for simple eyes is a good way for spring, but a pink eyeshadow or cream color is really pretty. Also, eyeliner is great. Whether you want a winged look with liquid eyeliner, or just brown eyeliner.
Colors Recommended: Pink, Coral, Teal, Blue, Violet.
My Fav Eye Product:
Miliani Liquif'Eye Metallic Eyeliner in Brown


CHEEKS:
Bright cheeks are a huge trend this spring, and I've been loving this color for cheeks for almost a year now.
Colors Recommended: Bright Pinks, Corals, even some shades of Violets.

My Fav Cheek Product:

Lancome Blush in Brume Rose


LIPS:
This is one of my favorite topics. I've been really into lip liners as a base for lipstick or gloss. I don't use it as a liner, I put it all over my lips and it works almost the same as lipstick. Use lip liners to help your lipstick stay longer. Bright colors are a good way to get into the Spring mood.
Colors Recommended: Coral, Bright Red, Violets, and Pastel Pinks.


My Fav Lip Product:


Avon Glimmerstick in Rose Bouquet






So, these are my makeup favorites for Spring. Please keep in mind that I might have mentioned a lot of bright colors, just please use one bright color at a time.. you don't want to look like a clown with bright teal eyeshadow, bright pink cheeks, and coral lips. Know what looks good on you!

I will be posting other Favorites on different topics very soon.

So today I saw the movie Julie and Julia, starting Meryl Streep and Amy Adams, in which Julie(Adams) writes on a blog about her adventure with the recipes of Julia's (Streep) cookbook, and it gave me a great a idea. I'm a person that has a lot to say yet I sometimes rather write it down than tell someone. Haha.. So I'm going to be expressing my thoughts on anything I want in this blog.

Let me introduce myself..

My name is Isabel :)
Lets be friends.
