No sleep and bum outfits!

Last night I got 2 hours of sleep. I had an exam yesterday, got home with just enough time to make index cards for my other exam today. And then my sister and my friend dragged me out to see FAST FIVE! Let me tell you though, it was such an amazing movie, and by far the best one of all the fast and the furious movies! So it was worth it right? I got home at 3am, and  went to sleep close to 4 and fell right asleep like a baby with my zebra print covers. It was nice.... but i had to get up at 6 to get ready for school and my exam at 8! So i couldn't even sleep on the train ride there, i studied. I only had 2 hours of sleep. I am exhausted! I'm wondering if i'd be less tired if i didn't sleep at all...

When I don't get much sleep or barely any, I usually dress down... so my outfit for today looked like this:
that is what dressed down looks like for me. Although i am wearing jeans (which is VERY rare), i have a hoodie on.... or whatever you want to call that. The sweater thing with a zipper and a hood from victoria's secret. I normally call that a sweater but only because in polish we call all those things a sweater! teeheehee. And since I didn't want to wear my hair down, it's tied in a low side ponytail, with a  hat on top. So i don't look too bummed out right? I hope not, i hate feeling like i look horrible!

Hope you all had more hours of sleep than I did!
Jeans and sweatshirts,

Central Park with my baby!

This spring break, i took my baby to central park! I live like an hour and a half away from central park, so i had to take 3 trains to get there! Because i just refuse to drive into the city! But my widdle boobear, LOVED central park! I want to take him again when I can! He had so much fun , but it tired him out! He passed out once we got on the train on our way back!
Look how happy he looks!!!! and he's actually looking at the camera for me! How loverly!
Then my sister and I took a trip down to saint marks, where i saw hamburgers bigger than me!
It was a good day!!! :D

I love when it's nice out!

Sunny days and clear skies,

Purple is the new pink!

The purple color has been very popular this spring. Everything from clothes, accessories, nail polish, and makeup! It being so popular, you'd think there would be so many shades of purple in the market, meaning lipsticks. But all they have are like dark ugly purples, or magentas, which is not what I was looking for!

With this video, i show you all how to get the perfect purple glam-tastic lips!

Here are the links to the things I used:

Hope you all enjoy this look! Because i love it!

Purple glamor everywhere,

Hello Kitty Nails

For those of you that also watch Kandee Johnson's youtube channel, you'd know tthat she just postedup a video on how to do hello kitty nails. Funny thing was that I was just about to make that video yesterday until I saw she put up a new video. Of course it had to be something I was going to do. 

So I won't post that video now or in a few days, but rather in a few weeks. I like my hello kitty nails better than hers. Hers are good tooo... but i just like mine better. 

This is what my version looks like:

i don't know, i feel like mine look cuter. Maybe it's just me. Either way.. i'll post that video in a few weeks since it would be weird if i was to post it now.

Hello kitty nails galore!

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting their battle too!

We live our lives just getting things done, running errands and doing things we have to do. We don't stop to ask people how they are doing unless well someone calls us then we ask "how are you doing" but do you all really mean it when you ask? Do you care?

Thing is, you don't know what people are going through. Sometimes asking someone how they are doing will make them feel like someone cares when maybe all they have in their life is themselves. Maybe they're torn up about a recent breakup, or maybe something more tragic happened. You never know what is going on in someone else's life. 

All we can do is be kind to everyone we meet. Maybe they'll be mean and bitter to us but so what, at least we were nice and then maybe, just maybe they'll be nice to the next person they see. After all, smiling and being nice can be contagious!

So today, and every day to come, 
"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting their battle too."

Love always, 
xoxo Lina

the TRUTH!

My sister bought me the coolest shirt ever yesterday! Well I wanted it, but didn't have much money on me so she bought it for me!! and i bought her bubble tea ;]

This shirt, speaks the truth! Well.. for the most part!

I thought it was so cute, and of course i had to make a funny face! I wore it to school today, and everyone loved it hehe, and my outfit too. they were like "wow look at you!" and my professor giggled at my shirt and said it was so cute! hehe!
wow, what a creepy picture, you can't see my arm!! well that's probably because my shirt is a Large and i had to have it because i was in love and they didn't have any other sizes left!

and i was kinda sorta like not matching today. but i was so unmatching that i matched! i had gold earring on, a brown bracelet, a black belt, a silver watch and a blue ring. haha you don't see nay of that in the picture because i'm getting ready to write a paper and wanted to get comfy so i took it all off!

oh, and i also had a cheetah print bow in my hair!

hehe i'm such a fashionista! teeheehee.

hope you all enjoy!!!

no boyfriends, no problems! (sorry men!, i didn't make the shirt!)

Stylish Monday!

Fashion 101

It's marvelous monday! 'm only saying it's marvelous because when I left my house this morning, it was raining. A few hours later it's all sunny, dry, and hot! YAY!!! I'm glad I didn't wear anything too warm!!

First style tip:
wear your tank top inside out!
can you see the inseam thingie part?!
Yep, i wore my tank top backwards today! haha but i'm just kidding, don't do that, that's a fashion no-no.

#2: SMILE!
you always want to smile, wherever you go, and no matter what you do or how you look. Just smile! It'll make you and others feel good!

This is what my whole outfit looked like today
I have black leggings on. An oversized jean collared/button down shirt. (If you don't have an actual women's version, just take your boyfriend's or dad's shirt!!) Then to make it look more womanly, I added a cheetah print belt! It went well with my hat too! Just remember, you don't want to overdo it with the prints! I wore knee high black boots. And then I accessorized some more with a really long earring, a watch, and i had two rings on which i don't have on in the picture because i took them off to wash my hands!

But I hope this was an idea of what you guys could wear now that it's spring time! YAY!!!

Fashion everywhere!

Nutella Hot Chocolate!!

Ever since I made my January/February favorites video and showed you guys the heart mug i drink my hot chocolate in, everyone has been asking me how i make this delicious tasting hot chocolate!

SO one day on youtube, i was just looking around and watching random videos. That day I found this video on how to make nutella hot chocolate. AND since i love nutella and i love the hazelnut flavor, i had to try it out. You guys can too... here's the video i learned how to make it from...

Let me just tell you how amazingly delicious tasting this nutella hot chocolate is!! With whipped cream, and more cinnamon sprinkled on top, it's like the most amazing taste in the world. I can't even tell you how good it is, because you won't believe me until you try some for yourself.

I'm off to make some now, because i must have my daily dose of nutella hot chocolate. I'll be making some for my sister too because.... well i got her addicted. OOPS.

Nutella+milk+cinnamon = delicious nutella hot chocolate,

Sailor fashion!

There's a new style now! Everything is inspired by sailors and anchors, all that wonderful stuffs. I think this new fashion style is sooo cutee!

There are these shorts, that i'm like IN LOVE with. I've been to 4 different forever 21's looking for these shorts but they're sold out everywhere!! Well... actually i saw one pair in a size XXL! But that definitely does NOT fit me. So i've been looking everywhere for these, and they don't even have them online =/

that's what they look like. They're navy blue with red stripes and gold buttons. They're not jeans, so these shorts will hug your thighs. I'm still going to keep an eye out for these shorts, and If i have to, i will probably end up buying  a material like that and making them myself if i can't find them!

Sailor shorts and fashion, 
xoxo Lina

Since my dad has the whole professional camera thingie with the lamp and all this stuffies that I only hope I could afford one day for my kids and give them photoshoots in the house, just cause its fun! So that's what my friend, sister, and I did last night once I got home from work... we didn't even take the pictures in the day time,... we would shine a very strong lamp on us and create different shadows and stuffies, and one of us would take the pictures, while the other posed. I did my own make-up, to match each outfit I did. For one of them, i just wanted to look evil, and be poisoned by an apple haha, and the other i was just having fun with!
 I feel like this one looks like it should be on a magazine cover. My baby kept jumping on me, so i guess he wanted to be in the shoot too! Look how photogenic he is!!

 haha i like this one because i was just having fun with the shoot, making weird faces and stuffies. i love being silly ol' me!

 I felt like i needed a prop so i took pictures with my empty piggy bank!! haha
 This outfit i was trying to look evil but seductive! :]
 and i like the makeup in the side of my face for this one. and the shadows!

had so much fun doing a home photoshoot, i'm hoping to do more in the future!!! =)

photoshoots and lots of pictures, 
xoxo Lina
