Hey guys, I haven’t seen you in a while. Anyway, let’s get rolling. So, I’m going to talk about mistakes. Now, there are big mistake like accidentally blowing up the whole world, there little mistakes like making a typo, and then there’s about five thousand other different kinds in between. Now, in my life the most annoying and embarrassing are the kind where you try to do something cool or funny and you end up messing something up. For instance, in P.E. a while back they taught us how to play volleyball. We were all sitting and one guy was standing. The coach bumps the ball as a demonstration and the ball goes near the guy who’s standing. So, the guy who’s standing picks up the ball and while trying to cool and awesome, he bumps the ball to the coach. To bad that the ball goes nowhere near the coach and hit’s someone in the head and we all start yelling at him. Try not to feel pity for the guy because he’s really annoying and he just hit someone in the head with a volleyball, so enough. So, I guess I’m done. Anyway, Live long and prosper. Meiergreen

The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart is THE best book I have ever read in my life. Although that’s pretty much a sum of the way I feel about this book, I guess I’ll just have to explain further: A group of four children is gathered to go on a top secret, life threatening mission. Each of these witty characters contribute to the story, making the plot very dynamic. Information is constantly twisting and turning around the plot, and the nonstop adventure makes this a book you just can’t put down. I have just started the sequel, and so far it is proving to be just as great! 10 Stars and 5 thumbs up for this series!

P.S. This book can easily be enjoyed by children and adults alike.

As you can probably tell from the title, this post is going to be about thing that are supposed to happen but don’t. For instance, in my class during lunchtime there are three sports that everybody wants to play. The three sports are football, soccor, and capture the flag. Of course the yard isn’t large enough to play all of those sports so we have to agree on only one. So we have to rotate different games every day. Sadly that doesn’t happen. It doesn’t happen because everybody wants to play capture the flag and the days were supposed to play the other games everybody leaves leaving us wit around five people. I’m not going to talk about this all day but I’m also going to talk about people cheating on stuff. I don’t mean like stealing money in monopoly, I mean like cheating on a diet or ritual. I know that some of the people reading this post are on a diet, and I know that some people reading this post are cheating on their diet, possibly right now, Dun, Dun, Dun. I also mean people who are trying to quit smoking or drinking but that’s not going to happen if you keep cheating. Anyway, I’m in to much of a happy mood to talk like a therapist right now so I think I’m am going to stop now. Live long and prosper. Meiergreen.

So, if you didn’t figure out the title you should really go back to the 2nd grade. No, just kidding! If you haven’t guessed, this post is going to be about boredom. It’s a good old friend that comes for a visit without calling first… the kind of friend that when you try to block out of your life, ALWAYS butts it’s way back in. Now, I’m not saying a little bit now and then isn’t healthy, but COME ON, when you really don’t do anything besides school, eating, and sleeping, it comes around ALL THE TIME. Now, I already know what I want to do with my life, seriously, but that doesn’t do much use for me when I’m in the 8th grade. So, after I get fed up with the usual – tv and computer – what to do? That’s the problem!  w-o-w…..    well, that’s the end of my mini-rant 🙂

Flowy tanks, zipper details, and lace are all very in this season. That’s why this top from Urban Outfitters is today’s perfect pick.

Gold jewlery has been very popular lately. These golden, tear-drop shaped earrings are very flattering to the face, and look very good on people who are brunettes. The orange and blue give a very calm feeling, and since they are opposite on the color wheel, they are a perfect match. This pair of gorgeous earrings are available at Anthropologie.

These Steve Madden flat sandals are absolutely perfect for this upcoming summer. The wide ankle straps flatter the ankles very well, and the unique color scheme gives any outfit an edgy twist.

:] Have fun being fashionable.

Step by Step: Everyday look for beginners in makeup.

1) Wash Face

2) Moisturize

3) Foundation: A medium coverage, liquid foundation works well applied with fingers. Remember to take it down the neck, so you don’t look like you’re wearing a mask. Follow with a powder.

4) Blush: Coral blushes are great, to give your cheeks a natural glow. Lightly sweep from the apple’s of your cheeks upwards. Be careful not to overdo it.

5) Bronzer: Bronzer is great to make the illusion of higher cheek bones. Gently sweep in the hollows of your cheeks. Drag LIGHTLY towards the corner of your mouth (do not create a line). An easier way to do it is to make a three on either side of the face.

6) Highlight: Apply a very small amount of highlight color under the bridge of the eyebrow, on the very tops of the cheek bones, and the littlest amount in the tear ducts.

7) Eyeliner: Apply pencil as close to the lash line as possible, then smudge with finger.

8) Eyeshadow: For a smokey look (for work or evening): Apply gold eyeshadow on the entire lid (not too much). Then apply a deep purple color on the outer corner, and the outer half under the eye (again, small amount). Then apply a shimmery copper color at the center of the lid.

9) Mascara: This is optional but if used can often make the eyes more defined and pronounced.

10) Lip Gloss: This product works well to bring some shine and color to the face. It also doesn’t have some of the problems that lipstick has of caking or spreading. Subtle colors are excellent for the daytime.

This is a set I made on a website called Polyvore. The website basically has thousands of images of clothing etc. and you make collages on the web.
