Every Women Needs This

    I recently journeyed into town to pick up some undergarments for a dress.  I wasn't looking for regular undergarments such as panties, bras, or a slip, I was in need of something to keep me all sucked in and toned.  When I first set out with my mom we went to JCPennys and Stage.  I think we only found short like spankx and let me tell you it was a battle to get them on.  After trying on two other ones we went to Walmart and bought a bra, slip, and pantyhose.  You might think these are the run of the mill kind but the bra is a strapless sticky bra, the slip is one that keeps you all in, and the pantyhose have a control top to do the same job.  At the end of the day I had a smooth figure, tan(ner) legs, and I fun story to tell my friends because trying on spankx is one of the funniest shopping trips ever.  These are for sure a good investment to have in your wardrobe.

Nail Ramble

    As with any color it changes with the seasons and that applies to nails as well.  I have been wanting to paint my nails black but without a base coat I was scared I would stain my nails.  Just the other day though my mom was going to the store and I ask her to pick me up a base coat and lucky me she did.  So I sit here today typing with black polish on my nails just loving it.  If you may have doubts and fears about going black because you my seem goth...don't be.  You will only look goth if you dress goth and even then it's not a bad thing; if you still have reservations about it you can always go with a dark purple or blue.  Down below is what I used to do my nails.

Lotion: this is something I just found in my mom's cabinet but if you have heard of the brand before tell me what you think.
Base Coat: Revlon Base Coat 005.
Polish: Pure Ice Black Rage.
Top Coat: Sally Hansen 100 Invisible this I usually don't use because it takes forever to dry.
Glitters: I haven't used the glitters but I thought they would make good accent nails.

Snow Ball Dress Ideas

   If you read my last post I mentioned my school holding a winter dance, Snow Ball, which its date has been set for early January.  With it coming up in at around 2 months I need to start toning up, putting some color on my skin, and most of all picking out what I will be wearing.  I have already found two pairs of shows that I love and three dresses that I feel the same about.

These are both from Forever21: #1 $37 and #2 $30

These are from Nasty Gal:: left $98, middle $110, & right $50

This is what I need to decide on and jewelry will come after.  If you want to leave a comment with what dress with shoes do you think I should wear to the dance.  If you have a different dress/shoes in mind link them in a comment also.  Remember, though, they should be reasonably priced...I'm not rich:)

Let's Just Chat

    I know I haven't blogged in about around a week or more but school is school...what can a girl do???  To amend my vacation from blogging I thought I could just fill you in on what's been going on or is going to happen in the lovely world of Emily.  This week has just been bonkers with tests/homework and it's all leading up to Friday.  It is not just any Friday it is Football Friday and today my school will be hosting the first play-off game...WhoopWhoop!!!
    Besides this week my school is busy with upcoming activities that the student council, which I'm a part of, must handle.  There are two school assemblies and a winter dance.

  1.         Play-Off Assembly: this will be next week depending on tonight's game outcome and I might be in a skit for it so fingers crossed.
  2.         Hanging of the Greens: this assembly is a Christmas Assembly student council puts on and we will be performing "Twas the Night Before Christmas" with a few twist here and there to not bore the audience.
  3.         Snow Ball: I love doing this dance.  Guys find creative ways to ask girls to be their date and it's just my faith in boys are restored.  For this your date (if you have one) picks you up and you take some pictures for the parents then head out to eat.  I like going in big date groups for dinner but after you go to the dance and just let loose.
This is pretty much a condensed version of what I will be up to and I will try not to slack on blogging to keep everyone in the loop.  Lastly, what are your plans this winter that you are looking forward to?

Autumn Day Look

    I have watched many a My Everyday Look/My Autumn and Winter Look or Get Ready With Me videos and I just love them. You get to see how people do their hair or make up and gather new ideas and looks for yourself.  Going off of these I put together a Autumn Day Look video to show everyone how I have been styling myself.  I haven't been doing anything big with my make up, it is intended to just look natural and highlight my features, but have have been getting the hang of styling my hair down the middle (even though in the first part of the video it doesn't look its best) either curled or straight.
