Blogidays- My Imperfections Tag!


Christmas is over!  I am also starting to experience Post-December Depression, because December is FLYING!

Today, I want to do a tag that I have thought about doing for awhile now. The Perfect Imperfections tag. I watch alot of these on Youtube, and I find them really interesting. For one thing, they really humanize people we look up to as "perfect". It is also interesting to see things that people see in themselves as imperfections, because while they're worried about them, most people don't even notice!

So, in this tag, you are supposed to mention 3 things you like about yourself/body, and 3 you're not so fond of.  I think I will start with the negatives:

1. I have a tooth that is slightly behind another. Up close, it is hardly noticeable, but I have had photos where it appears as though I am missing a tooth! It makes me really self conscious to smile and have photos taken.

2. My legs. I surely don't have the worst legs in the world, but my body isn't totally proportional. I am 5'5", so I am not too short, but my torso is abnormally long, and my legs are quite short. Fun fact, I was once told that my leg length is the same as people in the 4'11"- 5'1" height range! Aside from being too short, I think they are too thick. When I was younger, I wanted desperately to be thin, and exercised non-stop. As a result, my legs got really really musclular . I guess I would like to have longer, slimmer legs.

3. This isn't a physical thing, but I can't stand my over sensitivity! I am a very extremely sensitive person. I take almost everything to heart, and I get my feelings hurt very easily. I find it quite annoying as it interferes with my relationships with others and my daily life.

So, good things for last, here are my 3 that I rather enjoy about myself! :

1. I have very full, long, dark, eyelashes! I have never needed fakes, and most mascaras work well for me!

2. I have a very feminine body. I have pretty wide hips, but proportional breasts and a very slim waist. I feel like Betty Boop sometimes :p

3. Another personality trait, but my over sensitivity is positive sometimes. Because I am so hyper sensitive to  what goes on around me, I am very empathetic, and very caring. I put my absolute heart into everything I do, and can easily put myself in someone else's shoes. I feel the emotions of others, and I feel like this makes me a great listener. Because my emotions are very extreme, when I feel positive emotions, I experience them at a much greater level! :)

I would love to see your Perfect Imperfections tags! I tag every single person who comes across this post. Leave a response below, or a link to your blog if you make a post!

Blogidays- My Christmas Wish List!

Hey pretties!
I'm still sick like I mentioned in my last post, but I still wanted to do Blogidays today!

I wanted to talk about my Christmas list this year! Gifts are actually last on my priorities for Christmas (hello, food! ) but I do always have a few things to ask for from my family. Here are a few things on my list this year!

~ The Naked 2 palette from Urban Decay. I have wanted this for forever, but even when I do have the money, I am always hesitant to splash out so much for eyeshadow. However, upon doing the math, I realized that these shadows come out to less than $5 per shadow, and that's not too bad. I know of much poorer quality shadows that cost much more. I decided to ask for it for Christmas this year because I know I will use it ALOT!

~ A gift card to H&M. I feel like I need more clothes;)

~ The Naked 2 Palette. I have wanted this forever, and asked for this for several events. I am hoping Christmas this year is the year I recieve it! It is such a gorgeous palette, and I know I will use it to death!

~ The Bambi Let's Dream perfume. It is so girly, and let's face it, it is Disney. :)

~ Fuzzy Socks :) I own a few pairs, and I think I could use a few more :)

These are the bi things on my list, I also just want candy :p What is on YOUR list this year?

Blogidays- What Disney Means to Me

Hello, Hello!

Since last week would have been Walt Disney's birthday, and Saturday marks the anniversary of his passing, I wanted to do a special post in his memory, and explain to you all what Disney means to me, and how, without ever knowing it, Mr. Disney affected my life.

Who doesn't love Disney, right? I mean, what's not to love? The movies are timeless, the theme parks are amazing, it's a pretty awesome company! Most people like Disney. Alot of people love Disney. But Disney is so much more than a love for me. Disney is one of my passions in life. Disney, for me, goes so much deeper than loving the movies, etc. Disney is part of who I am. Disney represents all of the times in my life I have been the happiest, and Disney is my biggest source of inspiration in life.

I could try to put into words how Disney has forever changed my life, but I would never be able to capture just how much. I was always fascinated with Disney. As a child, the films were my favorites. When I grew a little older, Disney became my life. I studied Walt and the company. I became inspired by all that Walt Disney was and believed. I was inspired in every way, shape and form, and it changed my outlook on life.

I have such an emotional attachment to Disneyland, and all other aspects of Disney. The feeling of magic I experience upon entering the Disneyland Park is immeasurable. My dream is to someday, in someway, be apart of the magical company that is the Disney Company.

Walt, you have been the biggest inspiration of my life. You have taught me to have faith in my dreams, and that if I can dream it, I can most certainly do it. Thank you for the magic, and the lifelong memories. You have forever changed my life, and who I am, and for that I would never be able to thank you enough.

Walter Elias Disney
December 5, 1901- December 15, 1966

How much do you all love Disney? What would you say to Walt if given the chance? Comment below!

Blogidays- Winter Date Ideas!


I hope everyone  enjoyed the first day of my favorite month in the year! I spent it shopping for 7 hours.... Yes, Haul coming soon ;)

Today I wanted to share some winter date ideas. There are so many cute and fun things to do with your signifigant other (or friends) in the winter time! Here are a few of my favorites :

~ Make hot cocoa and watch holiday movies

~ If you have snow where you live, sledding ! I can't wait to go sledding with my hubby this year!

~ Coffee dates. This seems ordinary, but nothing like warm drinks in a cozy atmosphere for the perfect winter date! Make a pact to only order Holiday themed drinks:)

~Ice skating! You can always hold each other if you're like me, and not so talented at skating. :p

~ Find comfort-food recipies, and go shopping for the ingridients, and make it together! I love cooking new things with my husband, but I especially love it in the Winter when we can cook yummy pastas, soups, and other delicious comfort food :)

~ Find holiday crafts on Pintrest, and make a few! Pintrest has a TON of ideas, and you will get to see the artistic (or not so artistic) side of your partner :)

~ Go Christmas shopping together for your families, but make it interesting. Pick a theme for gifts, or set a budget and try to get the best (or funniest) things for your money!

~ Bake holiday treats together, then enjoy or give to friends !

These are some of my favorite activities to do with my husband in the winter-time. So fun and seasonally appropriate! What are some of your favorite winter dates?
