I'm not sure if you still only use cruelty free makeup products but do you know of any good drugstore brands that are cruelty free?

In times of uncertainty, I hope, Malaysia, that we do not spread unverified information. Take pause. And hope that the people directly affected stay strong. All we can do is be the best we can be, and be careful and thoughtful in how we talk about this.

Sweet Treats from Sift
Wednesday July 16, 2014

I know you guys think I eat super healthy, but I like to treat myself to something unhealthy occasionally. I can not pass cupcakes, donuts, macaroons, ice cream and boba. They are my weakness. But since it is my mom’s birthday today, I thought it would be perfect to buy her a box of macaroons. My sisters and I planed a Europe care package for our mom because she’s leaving for Europe in two months. So we packed a box fill of helpful things like travel sized products, a leather passport wallet, and much more.

I was wondering if you had any makeup tips for back to school? Thanks!🍉🌴

I’ve learned and seen a lot throughout high school. Here are some tips I’ve used whenever I wore makeup and a few recommendations.

  • BB cream/tinted moisturizer: Foundation gets super heavy and you will most likely touch your face a lot, especially in class. Keep it light cause you do not want to be sweating off your face from PE or the weather.
  • Settle lips: I’ve seen girls wear very bold dark lip colors to school. I feel like it’s too dramatic. A sheer lip tint or a light lip color will be perfect for a school day.
  • Easy on the bronzer: I personally don’t wear bronzer because I’m super lazy and I don’t wear that much makeup to school, but I’ve seen girls with the full on Kim K contour look. Just like the lips, it’s too dramatic. Use a little bit to lightly contour and to give yourself a little color.
  • Know your eyebrows: Sorry. I don’t know if I’m being judgmental, but I’ve seen girls with sharpie eyebrows. If you fill in your eyebrows and not sure if they look good/not too dramatic for school, ask a friend for their honest opinion. Or go to Sephora and ask them for help. Don’t define your eyebrows too much.

Hope this helps! Might do back to school posts as we get closer to the school year. Don’t be afraid to send me suggestions! x

what do you think a highschool student can do to help the community? or to help people in their community? as in volunteer work ect, any help would be good, thanks!

You can help in so many ways. You can volunteer at local senior homes, animal shelters, town events, or even the library. Participate in a local food drive. If your town doesn;t have them, then start one yourself at your school. If you want to go beyond that you should find something you like and relate to your community. I have a friend who loves playing an instrument and she tutored kids from middle school and high school to keep them in the music programs. I have another who was into bikes and asked people to donate their old bikes to him. He fixed them up and ended up giving them to local kids who were not fortunate enough to have bikes. Hope this helps! x

tips for upcoming juniors? x

Junior year was pretty rough for me. It was really hard for me to stay motivated because I saw how lazy the seniors were and I was so close being one but I knew I couldn’t slack because it’s the year colleges look at (along with sophomore year). Here are some things I got from my junior year:

  • Stay motivated (I created a post here)
  • Take the PSATs
  • Check for deadline sign ups for the SATs and ACTs
  • Talk to/connect with your counselor about college stuff
  • Start thinking about what you want to do after high school (gap year, college, ect)
  • If you are planning on going to college, think about where you want to go and what you want to major in
  • Tour schools (if you plan on going to college)
  • Keep your grades up
  • Check with your counselor to see if you are on the right track to gradate 
  • Stay out of drama when you see it

Sunday Morning Blues
Sunday July 13, 2014

Been chilling in my pjs all weekend studying, watching Harry Potter, and playing that stupid Kardashian game. Welcome to my summer. I honestly have a lot to do, but I’ve been super lazy. I still need to plan my senior portraits and I totally forgot its my mother’s birthday this week. Oops. I haven’t been posting a lot cause I have been busy with volunteer and class. I’m planning on making a “How to save money/score deals” post soon and I thought about vlogging. Not sure if you guys want me to vlog but my sister is looking for a wifi point and shoot camera so she can post fancy food pictures to Instagram. Yeah I know. How lame… But she asked me if I wanted to vlog cause then she would buy a camera with video. It sounds cool but I’m not sure if you guys would watch them…

World Cup today! My parents are so devastated over the Brazil and Netherlands game. They had very high exceptions for Brazil. After the US team left I started rooting for Germany.

Adventure Is Out There: Summer Time
Friday July 11, 2014

Due to some crazy events today, I was inspired to make a summer playlist. People may think they need spend a lot of money or do spontaneous activities to have a good time. I think you just need your friends, an awesome music playlist, and a destination. This destination could be the mall, the beach or the city. Anywhere. I’m sure you’ll make summer memories with simple activities as along as you spend it laughing and having a good time.

I made this playlist so my friends and I can dance and blast in the car with no shame. It’s Summer, so why not? I also added a few songs from my childhood that we all still know by heart. Hope this inspires you to grab your friends to create your own little summer adventure.
