Anonymous asked: Sarah! When can we see your senior pictures?
My photographer has not edit them yet, so the pictures you see on my side bar and icon are raw images. I will most likely post some right before the school year starts. Here is my favorite out of all of them:

You’re My Cup of Tea
Sunday July 27, 2014
Good morning everyone. Enjoying a very lazy weekend because it is too hot to go outside. You guys are probably thinking why I’m drinking tea when it’s super hot outside. I’m waiting for it to brew so I can add ice. I am trying out Yourtea’s Tiny Tea Detox. I’ve seen so many people trying it out including Makeupbymandy24 on Youtube.I like how the tea is organic and the company donates to charity. I also like how it doesn’t “burn fat” but reduces bloating, remove toxins, and improve energy levels. So it’s natural and safe. I am only on day two so I can’t say if anything has changed, but I will keep you guys updated.
I can not believe July is ending this week. I finally got around to look at college essay prompts and personal statements. Not going to lie, it got me stressing. I honestly hope I get to go back to school shopping for clothes soon because I want to beat the crowd. Hope you guys have a wonderful day! x
Breezy Days in the City
Friday July 25, 2014
Been super busy with class and volunteer lately. I am so glad I finished my summer class. As much as I love government, I was not down to sit in class for three hours three nights a week. I can not believe summer is almost over. I remember my Cancun trip as if it was three weeks ago.
Many of you guys know I took my senior photos last weekend. Lucky it was overcast, which was perfect for portraits. We took photos around the Embarcadero in San Francisco. And I got to try Pressed Juicery for the first time. I honestly do not understand the hype at all… It was good but it did not taste fresh. Pressed juice tastes ten times better fresh. I guess I would choose Pressed Juicery over Starbucks if they were right next to each other, but I wouldn’t stock up. The photo was taken on a Canon 5D Mark II because I didn’t have my camera with me. I will try to get my senior pictures up as soon as they are edited.

Anonymous asked: 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?
I still do. My go to cruelty free makeup drugstore brands are ELF and NYX. Physicians Formula, Hard Candy, and Orly are also cruelty free.
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.
Anonymous asked: 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
Anonymous asked: 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
Anonymous asked: 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
