We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together

 

♥ Bonjour l’amour! ♥

So, I’m doing a bit better since the whole Alicia and Mason incident. It’s been days since I’ve talked to her, but she  insisted I come over today, because she needs to talk to me, and, for the most part, I want things to get worked out. I don’t want to get revenge this time, and, I really don’t want to stress over this whole debacle, I want to move on. But, I do know what’ll get my mind off of things. My spring break is next week, and TPC and I are going to the ever so beautiful West Palm Beach in Florida! We’ve all been planning this trip for months, and it’s just 2 days away. ♥ ♥ ♥

______________________

I stood, motionless, on Alicia’s doorstep. I took a deep breath and moved the knocker, up and down. A few seconds later, Alicia opened the door wide open.

“Hey, great you’re here. Come on in.” I could see the fear in Alicia’s sparkling brown eyes, no matter how hard she tried to hide it. I stepped inside, and immediately inhaled the aroma of what seemed like one of those Glade air fresheners. I sat down on her couch and there was a silence before Alicia started talking.

“So, I wanted you to come over so we could talk about this whole thing that happened with Mason and, I just want to explain why I did that. Massie, you don’t know the whole story.”

“I have plenty of time, Leesh, go on.” I saw a faint smile spread across Alicia’s face, since I called her by her nickname, but it quickly faded away.

“As I recall, I kissed Mason on the night of his party.”

“Yes, yes, we all remember, no need to remind me.” I replied quickly, with a fake smile.

“Well, the thing is, and I’ve been wanting to tell you this for a really long time now, and–” Just as Alicia was going to tell what she’s been hiding for the past few weeks, her mother walked into the room.

“Hi darling, hello Massie, hope you two are having fun. I’m just going to be reading my novel, I won’t be bothering you two.”  I silently thanked her and nodded my head. We waited until Alicia’s mother was out of earshot, before we continued talking.

“As I was saying, the thing is, and this is really hard to say…Mason used to be my boyfriend before you, and you never knew he was. I kept our relationship a secret because I didn’t want to lose him, but then he ended up dumping me for some other girl.” It was all crystal clear now. The eye contact, the nervousness, the whole kiss. No one said anything for a few seconds, for I was still processing everything Alicia just told me.

“Alicia, I get it, I truly do. But, why didn’t you tell me before?” The more words came out of my mouth, the louder my voice became.

“Massie, I wanted to! I really did! It’s just that, you looked so happy with Mason and I didn’t want to jeopardize that.” I already realized what I had to do, and it’s something that a true alpha barely has to.

“I’m..sorry Leesh. I jumped to conclusions and I shouldn’t have. Forgive me?”

“Of course, Mass.” We both got up and I pulled Leesh into a hug. Once I let go, I immediately started talking about our spring break plans.

“So, you excited?” I asked with a clap of my hands.

“For what?’ Alicia asked putting her perfectly manicured finger to her chin.

“Spring break, silly! We’re going to West Palm Beach!”

“Ohh! How could I not be? I still need to finish packing, though.” Alicia said, giggling. Just then, my phone started ringing.

“One sec, it’s my mom.” I presses the green “Accept” button on my phone. “Hey mom. Yeah, I’m at Alicia’s house. Oh, okay. Kay, I’ll be there in a few. Bye.”

“What’d she say?” Alicia asked.

“Ah, gotta be home for dinner. I’ll call you later, kay?” I gave Alicia a quick hug and hurried out the front door.

As I started walking down the street to my house, I saw Mason walking across the street from me. I tried to go in a different direction. Too late. He already crossed the street and was running up to me.

“Massie! Massie, wait up!” He put his hand on my shoulder, but I shook it off. “Massie, don’t ignore me, come on.” I turned around and looked him right in the eyes.”You know, we really don’t have anything to talk about. You went along and kissed Leesh, but I made up with her. Nothing more to talk about.”

“Come on Massie, give me another chance?” He put his arms around my waist, leaned in and kissed me, but right when he did, I pushed him away.

“Sorry, but we? Are never ever getting back together.” And with that, I gave him one of my cocky half-smiles, and walked away.

I think I’d have heart attack / The Alpha Files: Round 4!

Bonjour l’amour! 

I’m sitting at my window seat as I’m typing up this post, my fingers moving across the keyboard slower than ever. I didn’t even even think I would have the strength to write this post today. After this feeling of betrayal, I don’t even know what to do with myself right now. I’ll tell you everything. Just read on.

SettingPost

I stood in front of my mirror, fixing my blazer, and brushing any visible lint off my dress. Alicia, Kristen, and Dylan all stood behind me, looking at my outfit in awe. Mason’s party started in 30 minutes, and I needed to look perfect.

“You think Mason will like it?” I asked my friends nervously.

“You’ve never looked better, Mass.” Kristen told me, a big grin spreading across her flawless face. I pulled all of my friends into a group hug and thanked them all. What would I do without them? As I let go of them, I checked the clock. 6:32. There was a long silence afterwards.

“Hey, uh, we should get downstairs, take some pictures before we leave?” I said, finally ending the period of silence. Everyone nodded their heads in agreement, and we all went downstairs.

“Smile!” my mother said enthusiastically for what seemed like the millionth time. We all flashed our pearl-white teeth. She snapped the picture, and I immediately called Isaac to ask him if he was ready to drive us to the party.

“Okay mom, enough pictures, we gotta go!” I said, giggling.

“Okay, you girls have fun tonight!” I wrapped my arms around my mom and walked out the door with the PC.

__________________

We pulled up in front of Mason’s house. It was huge. Almost as big as my estate. I opened the door and stepped out of the car, the rest of the girls following behind me. I thanked Isaac and told him what time to pick me up. We walked up to the front door, and knocked on the door with the knocker. Mason opened the door almost immediately. I could see that the party was already in full swing. People were dancing, and shouting. The music was booming. Perfect for a party.

“Hey!” I stepped forward and hugged Mason.

“Hey love! I’m guessing these are your friends?”

“Yep! Mason, this is Dylan, Kristen and Alicia!” Mason greeted them all and locked his eyes on Alicia for a few seconds, then let us inside.

It took me a while to get comfortable with Mason’s home, but after a while? I was singing and dancing like there was no tomorrow. ♥

“Hey, I’ll be back in a sec, restroom.” I told Kristen and Dylan. Before I left, I noticed that Leesh and Mason were nowhere in sight. “Have either of you seen Mason and Leesh?” I asked them. They shook their heads and then continued dancing.

I walked upstairs, and opened the restroom door. At least I thought it was. It was a bedroom. I was about to leave when I came back and saw something that couldn’t even be possible. But it was happening right in front of me. Leesh was sitting right there, with Mason. Kissing him, practically making out with him. Before I could stop them, tears rolled down my cheeks and I slammed the door shut. I dashed downstairs, told Kristen and Dylan that I was leaving and hurried out the door. They both followed me, and asked me what had happened.

“You know, I don’t even know for myself.” I called Isaac and he came a few minutes later. Right as we were about to step into the car, Alicia and Mason both came running out.

“Massie, it’s not what you think.” Mason said.

“You know what? It’s exactly, what I think.” I said as I stepped into the car.

“Massie, wait!” Alicia cried, but we Isaac was already driving away.

____________________________

I sat on my bed, still wiping away tears from my eyes. I grabbed my diary off of my night stand, and started writing.

Dear Diary,

I thought today was going to be perfect. A night to remember. I was going to laugh and dance with my friends and my boyfriend, Mason. Well, my ex-boyfriend now. You know, I really thought it was going to last longer. But..I thought wrong. He just played with me until someone better came along. What really kills me, is that the girl who once used to be my best friend, betrayed me. She crossed the line, and I don’t know if I could ever forgive her. You know the saying? Real love stories don’t have endings? Well, I guess my love story wasn’t real.

xoxo

The Alpha Files: Round 4! 

Hey lovelies! This is going to be my entry for the 4th round of The Alpha Files! Enjoy!

What Inspired You to Create a Blog?

A few years ago, I started reading The Clique series. The books were absolutely amazing! I became infatuated with them and would always read them over and over again. As I was reading the books, I payed a lot of attention to Massie’s character, and the way she acted. I loved her character, so I decided to go on Google and search up some things. I looked up: “How to Dress Like Massie Block”, for I loved Massie’s original, cute, and chic style. After surfing several different websites, and articles, I came across a blog, two actually. They were MassieKurX and Lovely Massie Block’s blogs. I loved both. They were very unique, and it seemed like a lot of work was put into the making of the blogs. I found it very cool, that I could be a totally different person if I started blogging, and I could escape my life for a little while. This lead me to creating my own blog. I contacted Lovely Massie Block and asked her for some help with getting started, and I was very content with the outcome of my blog.

What will you bring to The Alpha Files, that the other girls may not be able to offer?

I am a very creative, outgoing and fun person. I’m very clever and artistic when it comes to blogging and fashion. I know how to put my own style into things, and still make them enjoyable for everyone, and not all bloggers have these qualities. I’ve actually had my own personal fashion blog in the past on Blogspot, that I wanted to continue on WordPress, but I did not have the authority. So, I do have a lot of experience with running the type of blog that is related to The Alpha Files. Having known one of my best friends for several years now, whose dream job is to be a fashion designer, I have developed a great idea and understanding of fashion and trends. I have great communication skills, and I have been a great partner to many in my life. I am a very active listener, and I’m always open to ideas and am always thinking of new ones. I have a love for sports, and I’m an active person. I would have great advice about staying active and healthy. I love to experiment with makeup and I’ve tried out several different brands, so I know if certain brands are better than others.

Why would you like to be my partner?

You are a very eminent and famous blogger here on WordPress. What I really like, is that you stay modest about everything. You don’t draw attention to yourself, and these are great characteristics, especially when it comes to collaborating with other people. You have a great sense of fashion and beauty, and you definitely know your stuff! Ever since I started blogging on WordPress, which was September of last year, I’ve never been part of a collab blog, while several other girls, including some of the competitors, have. I do have a lot of experience with collaborating, though. I would really appreciate the chance to work with you, because I could learn a lot about all the topics surrounding this blog, which could help me with future blogging.

Tell me about yourself. Talk about anything you’d like to do with YOU. Your personality, your interests/hobbies, your dislikes, your likes, your favorite things, etc.

If there is one word to describe me..it’s outgoing! I love meeting new people, and going out in the world, discovering society. I’m that friend who will always make you laugh and smile, no matter what the case is. I’m quite ambitious as well. I absolutely love singing, and music. They’re the two things that keep me going. If I didn’t have them, I don’t know where I’d be right now. I play one instrument, which is the violin, and I’m doing pretty good so far. One of my hobbies that isn’t music related, is photography. I feel as if photography is a way you can tell a story without any words, and it’s delightful, and sometimes it’s even breathtaking. I think that dark photography really has double meaning and I just love it. Of course, last but not least, I have a love for fashion. I love playing around and experimenting with it. I love lace, peplum tops, button-ups. The one clothing piece I cannot live without are skinny jeans. My style is pretty much cute, chic, and laid back. 🙂

That’s a wrap!

Advice, please? (The Alpha Files)

Bonjour l’amour!

Today, I won’t be doing a story post either, but I promise I will in my next post!

So, this post is going to be for The Alpha Files as well. I am going to be giving my most thorough advice to a sample advice question. Usually, you would answer these questions through email, unless the person who was asking, wanted it public. However, these are just common advice questions that Massiekur X made up herself, to test how good we are at giving advice. 🙂

So, I hope you enjoy the post!

_________________________________

The advice question:

There is only one way to say this. My fashion sense is absolutely horrid, and don’t get me started on how I take care of myself. I have no idea where to shop without blowing my entire wallet, and what kind of beauty products should I be using!?  My hair looks the same every single day, what kind of hair styles should I do? All the girls in my school look so put together, why can’t I do that!? ACCA-THIS IS URGENT!

My advice to you!

Hey darling!

I totally know how you feel! Many girls out there want to be as cute and fashionable as the others at school. Not always to impress the popular girls, or the well put together girls. Just so that they can feel confident, and there is nothing wrong with that! Just know one thing: You’re definitely not alone! So, here’s my advice!

Okay, so, when it comes to fashion, some girls are on a budget or they are saving up money for other things, and don’t want to spend all their money on clothes. However, there are several stores out there that sell very cute clothes for a reasonable price! E.g., Aeropostale, PacSun, Forver21, etc. These are the kinds of stores that have great clothes, and great sales as well!

Now that you know where to shop, we have to look at the other side of the problem: What should I shop for, and how should I shop?

Well, you should shop according to what season it is! For example, if it is spring, you should buy clothes for spring. You should never wear winter clothes in summer, or summer clothes in winter. That’s a big mistake.  Since spring is approaching, I suggest you buy clothes that have pastel colors. It’s not too bright for summer, but it’s perfect for spring, and it makes you feel like you’re getting ready for summer! I definitely recommend going for light, pastel-colored sweaters, and skinny jeans if you would like. And, you can never go wrong with printed shorts or tops! You can pair them with a simple top or bottom, but you can still look cute!

But always remember: When you’re shopping, buy clothes that you know you can pair with clothes you currently own so you can make a variety of cute outfits.

Now, for the hair! There are so many amazing hairstyles to try that only take a few minutes to do! There are braids, twists, buns, and so many more!

So, if you’re running late for school but you still want your hair to look good, I suggest going with a top-knot. It’s a bun that goes high up on your head, and looks super cute! You can also do a classic twist on the top-knot, by putting a braid around the bun. You can look for tutorials on this hairstyle on Youtube or Google.

If you still have plenty of time in the morning, then you’re in luck, love! You can definitely go with a pretty braid!

One of my favorite braids is the fishtail. It doesn’t take long to do, and makes you look like you put a lot of effort into styling your hair, even if you didn’t.

If you want to mix up the classic three-strand braid, you can go ahead and add even more sections! You can make the 4 or even 5 stranded braid!  Seems complicated, but it definitely isn’t. 🙂

Now, I’ve given you some hairstyles, but you can find even more online! If you don’t want your hair to look the same everyday, you should plan a different hairstyle for each day of the school week, or entire week, so you have something new and fresh each day!

And, now the last thing is the beauty products!

Many beauty and makeup products work really well, but they also clog your pores and give you acne! So, you should find some different beauty products and use the one that works best on your skin. You shouldn’t use something that doesn’t work well for you, just because everyone else is using it. And, do not keep switching brands if one works well on you.

Try choosing from Maybelline, Estee Lauder, L’Oreal, or Mary Kay. 🙂

So, I hope this helped you darling! 🙂

xoxo

A how-to: How to stay alpha in the rough winters!

Bonjour l’amour!

Before I start, I would like to thank Rory Blake for doing my blog makeover! I love it so much, the header is gorgg! Thanks a million! Her blog: officialaurorablake.wordpress.com

Today’s post will be for the second round of The Alpha Files! To whoever moved on to the next round, congratulations! If you didn’t move on, I’m sorry! Better luck next time! So, this how-to will give you some tips on how to maintain an alpha attitude, and how to stay looking alpha in the wintertime as you can tell by the post name.

Let’s get started!

Face/Skin/Hair Care:

White lips, pale face, from breathing in the snowflakes!

Here’s how to fix all the problems winter does to your face, lips, and hair!

The cold weather in winter tends to make your face look pale, and get pretty dry! This is really easy to fix, though!

Face:

This is pretty obvious, but it’s still super important! Choose a face wash that works well for you and wash your face at least two times a day. At morning and at night are the most convenient times. Once you are done washing your face, make sure you moisturize, too. Doing this will keep your skin hydrated, clean, and smooth! Keep in mind that there are scented moisturizers, that do the same thing as normal moisturizers, but have a great scent and will keep you smelling great!

♥♥♥

Lips:

Now, this is the most common thing that happens in the winter to your lips; they get chapped and dry! Many people think that they can fix this problem by erm..licking their lips. Yeah, we all do it! But, truth is, that takes moisture away from your lips! So, fight the urge to lick your lips. Instead, always carry a moisturizing lip balm in your bag/backpack/clutch etc. The lip balms that I recommend are:

Baby Lips by Maybelline New York

Burt’s Bees Lip Balm

EOS Lip Balm

Tip: You should always drink plenty of water to avoid chapped lips! Sometimes you get chapped lips due to lack of water intake!

♥♥♥

Eyes:

What I notice about myself and other people is that our eyes look more tired than usual in winter than they would in the summertime. But don’t worry! There are several easy ways to fix this problem!

#1: With white eye shadow! When you’re doing your makeup in the morning, take some white eyeshadow with an angled eyeshadow brush. Apply it to the inner corners of your eyes. Bam! Your eyes look brighter and you look more awake. This literally takes one minute and it’s very easy!

And, of course, concealer and foundation! BB Creams work amazingly well, too!

#2: With cold spoons! Before you go to the bed, put a cold spoon in your freezer. When you wake up in the morning, it should be pretty cold! Take the spoon and put it over both of your eyes, each for about 20 seconds. This will help reduce the visibility of under-eye bags and circles.

#3: The cucumber method! Take two slices of cold, fresh cucumber and put them on your eyes. This will help reduce puffiness in your eyes. Leave the cucumbers on for 10-20 minutes!

Drinking a lot of water helps with this problem as well!

♥♥♥

Hair:

This doesn’t happen with all people, but for some, their hair gets pretty cray-cray in winter. To keep your hair in good shape, just follow these easy tips!

Tip #1:

So, in winter it’s windy from time to time. This causes your hair to get tangled. Even if your hair doesn’t get tangled, your hairstyles will fall out and get ruined. To avoid this, don’t do super fancy hairstyles. But, of course if you want to, you can. They look really good, but they tend to fall out easily during winter because of rain/wind. However, if they don’t need much fixing up during the day, knock yourself out! 🙂 Instead, do a simpler hairstyle that’s still cute, that you can fix throughout the day. I definitely recommend all kinds of braids. They’re easy and super cute! There are so many out there!

Tip #2:

Don’t wash/wet your hair as often. Going out and about with wet hair in winter isn’t very fun! Dry your hair before you leave, and if you would like, feel free to use heat protectant. Your hair can actually break if you go out in the cold with your hair wet. But you can wash your hair everyday if you would like, just make sure it’s dry before you go outside on a cold day!

Tip #3:

Try wearing a scarf/hat when you’re out to prevent your hair from getting all static-y. You can also use a static guard, but that’s totally optional. It’s windy in winter, so if you don’t want to make your hair look like Big Bird, go with this tip. 🙂

Tip #4:

If you are going to be washing your hair less often in the wintertime, to prevent your hair from getting oily, I suggest a dry shampoo. They are really helpful and quick to put in your hair. They are really cheap too, so I definitely recommend getting one.

_____________________________________________

Makeup:

For all you makeup-wearers out there, the first thing I can say to you is…don’t wear heavy makeup in winter! In winter, as I mentioned before, your skin tends to get dry. Heavy makeup along with that isn’t the best for your skin.

So, instead of going for heavy foundations and concealers, try going for a tinted moisturizer. They are light on your skin, provide great coverage, and are hydrating! It’s perfect for winter, because it will feel like you aren’t even wearing anything!

Another product that’s better than foundations and concealers in winter is a BB cream. They are also light on your skin, they hydrate, nourish, tint, and prime and protect your skin. You should definitely check out some BB Creams and find the one that’s right for you!

________________________________________________

 Fashion!  

Bundle up and stay warm!

It’s getting warm in some places in the world, but in others, it’s still pretty cold! Just because it’s cold, doesn’t mean you have to look bad with a whole bunch of layers! There are so many cute outfits to wear while staying warm!

The must-haves for winter are definitely:

Peacoats

Skinny jeans

Infinity scarves

Boots 

Leather jackets

Beanies

Cute over-sized sweaters

Here are a few outfit ideas for winter that are super cute, but will keep you warm at the same time!

#1: School!

Top: Plain white long/short sleeve

Bottom: Dark wash skinnies

Shoes: Chestnut/Sand Uggs or Suede boots

Jacket/Coat/Blazer: Black Peacoat

Accessories: Light blue/pink or dark purple/blue (navy blue) infinity scarf, gray beanie, stud earrings. Cute bracelets. (optional)

#2: Family time!

Top: Cream sweater

Bottom: Forest green skirt and black tights

Shoes: Combat boots/suede boots/Uggs.

Accessories: Gold/silver bangles, gold/silver stud/dangly earrings.

#3: Lazy day/doing errands

Top: Over-sized, long sleeve, white sweater

Bottom: Gray leggings

Shoes: Brown combat boots

Accessories: Pink beanie! (or whatever color you would like to give the outfit some color. Gold necklace and bangles. (bangles or necklace optional).

So, I hope those outfits helped you and inspired you to create new outfits and get ideas!

Okay, that’s the end of my how-to! I certainly hope you enjoyed it and I hope it was helpful to you!

Good luck to everyone in Round 2 of The Alpha Files!

Hey darlings!

Before I begin my post, I would like to give a HUGE thanks to SoccerKrisKris for doing my blog makeover! Thank you so much, I love it!  ♥ Extra announcements will be at the end, as always. Now, on with the post!

______________________

I sat at my desk, listening to music, writing my English essay. As I finished up the sentence, I grabbed my phone to text Alicia telling her that I couldn’t come to her house, because I had homework to catch up on and check for any new messages. I had one text from Mason, and I couldn’t help but smile when I read his name on the screen. I clicked “Read” and the message popped up.

“Hey love. I’m having a party this Saturday, gonna be big! It starts at 7:00, and you can bring others too. Text me back telling me if you can come or not. :)”

I tossed my phone on my bed once I was done reading the message and called the PC. Alicia answered almost immediately, as always.

“Heyy! I got your message, it’s fine.”

Dylan’s voice came on next, then Kristen’s.

“Hey. So, I just got a message from Mason, and he’s having a party this Saturday, you’re all invited!”

“Perfect timing for a party. I just gained 3 pounds! I’m not going to look good in anything.” Dylan whined.

“Yes you are Dyl, don’t worry!” Kristen said reassuringly.

“Anyway, I need you all to come to my house after school tomorrow so you can help me pick out to wear. We also need to get our nails done.”

“I’m in!” they all said in unison.

“Apple-C!” Leesh said quickly.

“K, I have to go finish my essay, see you tomorrow.” I hung up the phone and went over to my desk to finish my English homework.

_____________________

“Turn the music up!” Kristen said, as she danced around my room. Leesh walked over to the radio and turned the volume up so loud that my ears started ringing, but I didn’t care. We all started going through my clothes and picking out different outfits that I should wear to the party.

♦♦♦

After what seemed like forever, we finally picked out an outfit.

Outfit1

 

“Ehmagosh! It’s perf!” Alicia said excitedly. Kristen and Dylan both bobbed their heads in agreement.

“Do you think it’ll impress Mason?” I said nervously.

“Definitely! But, remember, Mason loves you just the way you are.” Kristen put a comforting hand on my shoulder.

“Well, I have to go, I promised my mom I would be home by now to help her out with something.” Alicia said quickly. I raised my eyebrows at her, but all she did was continue to look at the ground.

“K, do you need a ride home?”

“No, I’ll have Dean pick me up, no worries. Bye!” Alicia exited the room before I had time to say anything else. And then she went off, again. She has to go when we’re on the phone, and she has to go when she’s at my house. What’s going on?

“Let’s all go downstairs. I’m starving.” Dylan said, rubbing her stomach. Kristen and Dylan headed toward the door.

“You coming?” Kristen asked. I caught myself just standing there, motionless, and I snapped out of it.

“Yeah, coming.”

_________________

I set the carrier containing 4 chai lattes down on our table and sat down. I took a long sip and began talking.

“Okay, so I was thinking that you could all come at around 5-ish to get ready for Mason’s party and we can take some pics. Sound good?” The PC nodded, except for Alicia who was smoothing down her hair and looking around the room.

“Leesh..sound good?” I said slowly.

“What? Oh, um, yeah. Sorry.”

I pulled out my phone, pretending to get a text from Mason, but instead, I texted Leesh.

MASSIE: Why are you being so nervous whenever I bring up Mason? Like, you have to eventually tell me what you have been meaning to tell me for over a week now!

ALICIA: I know! I haven’t had time. I’ll tell you, promise.

I was going to tell her to tell me now, but I decided to wait until she wanted to.

I tucked away my phone, and continued talking to the PC, pretending that nothing was bothering me.

New Year’s Eve! OLIVE YOU! ♥∞ Best of 2012 TAG! :)

Hey hey hey!

So, today is New Year’s Eve! Ehmagosh, you have no idea how crazy 2012 was! I already did a post about this year called: “Let’s rewind and remember ♥∞” so, in this post, I’m going to be doing the Best of 2012 TAG!!! I love doing tags, so I thought it would be super fun to do this one, and I hope you all can do it!

I watched Macbarbie07’s Best of 2012 Tag and I just needed to do it for my New Year’s Eve post! 😀

Watch her tag if you would like:

So, I tagged a whole bunch of you! If I didn’t tag you, I’m sorry, but if YOU are reading this, then…TAG! You’re it! I want you to do this tag!

Okay, let’s get started!

__________________________________________________

My Favorite…

BEAUTY!

1. Face product

Okay, I have used quite a few different face products in 2012, but I would have to say that I love the CoverGirl NatureLuxe foundation the best! It is just a great foundation and it works really well, I think, on all different skin types. It has really good coverage as well. So, no matter what type of skin you have, I recommend trying this foundation out!

2. Cheek product

I don’t always use cheek products. I usually only wear them when I look really tired or pale-ish in the morning. So, my favorite cheek product for 2012 was the Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush! It comes in so many different colors, and the color comes on really well! And, I love how it bounces, LOL! Overall, I think that’s it’s a great blush!

3. Eye product

Like blush, I don’t always wear eye products. I do wear it on special occasions at school or with my family, etc. This year I really loved the UD Naked Palette and Naked Palette 2! The colors in the palette are so pretty and it has a variety of colors, like matte ones, shimmery ones, etc. I love doing makeup routines with this palette because it makes my eyes look really pretty and I just love the Naked Palette eye shadow.

4. Lip product

Okay, this one was really hard for me. I love wearing lip glosses and balms and stains, and I have used a whole bunch of great lip products this year, but I only chose one! And that is the Burt’s Bees lip balm in peppermint! This lip balm always makes my lips feel smooth, and never leaves them chapped. It also makes them really fresh and icy because it’s in the peppermint flavor, so I really love that. It also comes with a little hand salve, so that was convenient, haha. I also really love Baby Lips, but I didn’t use it much this year, so I have to say the Burt’s Bees lip balm.

5. Skincare product

So, once I find a skincare product that works really well for me, I don’t like changing too often. I was tied between two products, but I decided to choose the St. Ives Apricot scrub! It really exfoliates your skin and leaves it super soft! I use it about one every month and on special occasions. The scrub literally makes my face glow and I just love it! I definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a new skincare product.

6. Nail polish

Okay. You have no idea how much I have been loving Essie’s pastel colored nail polishes this year! I love shimmery nail polishes and bright ones, but this year I have been obsessed with pastel colored nail polishes because they are just so pretty and they go with everything in my opinion. So, I have really been loving that for 2012.

7. Hair product

This wasn’t very hard for me, because at once I knew that the Paul Mitchell smoothing super skinny serum was my fave for 2012! There are so many things to love about this product. It makes your hair less frizzy, and it makes it nice and shiny and glossy which I obviously love! And, oh my gosh, it smells ah-mazing! It’s just an awesomesauce hair product.

8. Final beauty Q: Body product/Perfume

This is the hardest of all! My favorite scent is obviously from Bath and Body Works, haha. I have so many scents from there and they all smell so good! I came out with two favorites though. My number 1 favorite is the Black Raspberry Vanilla perfume from Bath and Body Works. It smells like heaven, I’m serious. I don’t know how to explain the scent…you just have to get it for yourself! And, my second favorite is the Charmed Life body lotion from Bath and Body Works! It’s a really good scent that I love wearing all year round, especially in spring and summer.

FASHION!

9. Clothing piece

This year I have been loving sweaters. If they’re normal, or over-sized, or knit. I just love sweaters because you can just pair them with leggings or skinnies and some cute boots and you have the perfect fall/winter/lazy day outfit which I absolutely love! I’ve also been loving leather jackets! I would have to say that brown and black are my favorite colors. And, you can pair a leather jacket with a really cute sweater, so that’s combining two of my favorite clothing pieces for this year!

10. Accessory 

Flower headbands and bows! I love flower headbands because they can add some pizaz to any plain or dressy outfit. They come in lots of different styles and colors, and I just think they’re really cute. 🙂 Same with bows. I love wearing them in my hair, usually at the back of my head and it’s a simple yet super cute hairstyle!

11. Pair of shoes

For this year my favorite pair of shoes were my short sand colored UGGs, all my pairs of Converse, and my white sandals! I love my short UGGs because they just go with anything! I just pair them with a pair of skinnies and a cute sweater, and bam! Cute outfit! Converse are always really casual, and also go with anything, especially the black ones, because black goes with anything! And, I love my pair of white sandals for summer because I can also wear them with anything because they’re white, lol. They have a criss-cross pattern and they have mini rhinestones on them, which I love!

RANDOM!

12. Favorite TV Show/Movie

Ahh I have so many favorites, so this is going to be really hard! But, I have to say that Dance Moms is my favorite! I just love all the drama on the show, and the girls are just amazing dancers! They move so gracefully on the dance floor! My favorite movie has to be ABC’s Cyberbully, because it really teaches you a lot about what bullying can do, and how we can reach out to help stop bullying.

13. Favorite book

For 2012, my favorite book was the Hunger Games! I love Harry Potter way more, but just for this year, I loved the Hunger Games! It’s a really great book, and it’s written in a very detailed manner. I watched the movie too, but I think that the book was a lot better.

14. Food

My fave food for this year isn’t really a food, but it’s more of a snack. It’s Oreos! They taste so good! I love dipping them in milk, or just taking them apart eating the filling then eating the crackers, haha. Ahh they’re awesome!

15. Beverage

Starbucks! I love their White Peppermint Mochas and omg, salted caramel hot chocolate! It is so yummy! If you haven’t tried one or either of those, you have to try them because they’re super good!

16. Favorite song

I have had so many favorite songs for 2012! I’m only gonna say a few of them though. The first one is Ready or Not by Bridgit Mendler, because it’s an upbeat song that I can listen to no matter what mood I’m in, and if you actually listen to the lyrics, you can actually get a message from the lyrics. The second one is We are Young by FUN.!  FUN. is an amazing band and their song “We Are Young” is also an upbeat song that always makes me happy and makes me wanna have fun. The third one is Paradise by Coldplay because I just love the tune and it’s a really inspirational song! Last but definitely not least, Glad You Came by The Wanted. This song is just awesomesauce, that’s all I’m gonna say. It’s just so good. 😀 So, those are just a few of my favorite songs!

Alright, that’s it for this Best of 2012 Tag! I hope you enjoyed reading it, and I hope you all do it too!

Thanks for making the last few months of 2012 so amazing for me! OLIVE YOU! If it is already 2013 where you are, Happy New Year! I hope your first day of 2013 is going smoothly!

If I just lay here, will you lie with me and just forget the world?

Hey girls, merry late Christmas! I wasn’t able to get a Christmas post in, but I’ll definitely have a new year’s post! So, hope you like the post!

______________________________

I checked myself in the mirror one last time before leaving the estate. I was wearing a black peacoat with my navy blue skinny jeans. I paired it with my gray beanie and my black DKNY wedges. I thought my outfit needed more color, so I paired it with a dark purple scarf. I need to look perfect when Mason comes over. I applied a fresh coat of MAC lip gloss, but then decided to remove it because I wanted a scented lip gloss. I took the lip gloss set that Kristen got me for Christmas and applied the vanilla cupcakes flavor. I took a deep breath, then headed downstairs.

I checked the text Alicia sent me last night.

ALICIA: Hey, can you come over to my house at around 5:00 tomorrow?

MASSIE: Can’t, got something to do then.

ALICIA: It’s urgent, you have to come.

MASSIE: Kay, I’ll be there.

I checked the time on my phone. It was 4:45. Perfect. I headed out the door and waited for Mason to arrive. A few minutes later I saw him walking towards the estate.

“Mason!” I quickly ran up to him and hugged him.

“Hey, gorgeous!” He hugged me back and kissed me on the forehead.

“Kay, listen. My friend Alicia texted me last night, and she said I had to come over. Something urgent. So, before we leave, can we go to her house?” He stared at me for a few seconds before he answered. “Uh, yeah, sure.”

“You okay?” I asked.

“Yeah, I’m fine, let’s go.” He put his arm around my shoulder and we walked to Alicia’s house.

__________________________

I rang the doorbell of Alicia’s house and a few seconds later she opened the door.

“Hey! Sorry, I forgot to tell you that Mason was coming with me. Is that okay?” I said, rubbing my hands together, trying to keep my hands warm.

“Hey!” She looked at Mason and froze. “Um, yeah. Come in.” I entered Alicia’s house and we all went into her living room.

“So, what do you have to tell me that’s so urgent?” I asked Alicia.

“Before I get to that, do you want anything to drink?” I could tell that Alicia was nervous about something by the sound of her voice. But, what could it possibly be that she’s so worried about? I did want something to drink, but I wanted Alicia to tell me what she’s been keeping from me.

“No thanks. Mason, do you want anything?”

“Uh..water please.” He said slowly. Alicia disappeared into her kitchen as she went to go get some water. I was starting to worry. Was Alicia going to leave the group? Has her family gone broke? There were so many possibilities, but I would just have to wait.

Alicia walked back in the room, handed Mason a glass of cold water, and sat down.

“Kay, NOW can you tell us?” I asked eagerly.

“Umm, well, I wanted to tell you that…I thought of new moves for our dance routine!” Alicia said enthusiastically. That’s what she had to tell me really bad?

“Couldn’t you have just told me that over the phone Leesh?” I asked her impatiently.

“Well, I thought..that I could show you the dance moves in person!” She replied.

“Okay then. Can you show me?”

“Sure!” Alicia moved some furniture and stood in the center of the living room. She paused for a few seconds, then began dancing some of the moves that were already in our routine, but I didn’t point it out because I wanted to continue my date with Mason, and leave faster.

“Cool!” I raised my arm and checked my watch. “I gotta go now, but I’ll IM you later, kay Leesh?”

“Kay, bye Mass!” I stood up and hugged Alicia goodbye then exited the estate with Mason.

I walked downtown with Mason, our fingers intertwined. Not many people had taken down their Christmas lights yet, so we were walking around looking at all the amazing lights, sipping hot cocoa. It was an amazing date that he planned. It was going perfect, until it started pouring rain. We both went back to my estate.

“You know Massie, you really are an amazing person.” He said. I looked down and started blushing and let out a small “thanks” and “you are too”.

“Well, it’s really starting to rain, I better head inside.” I said.

“Wait, before you do, I need to do something.” he replied.

“What?” I asked curiously.

“This.” He put his arms around my waist and kissed  me. It wasn’t one of those mini goodbye kisses, it was more of an “I love you and don’t want to let go” kind of kisses. It’s the kind of kiss that every girl dreams of. You know, being kissed in the pouring rain?

I sat at my Mac desktop, IMing the PC  about the other so-called clique in my dance class. Suddenly, a private IM from Alicia popped up on my computer screen.

ALICIA: What I told you today, about me coming up with the new dance moves, wasn’t what I actually wanted to tell you Mass.

MASSIE: What? So, what do you really want to tell me?

ALICIA: It’s something about Mason, and I have to tell you in person, not over IM.

MASSIE: Fine, at school?

ALICIA: No. Can you come over tomorrow too?

MASSIE: Sure.

ALICIA: Great. Well, I have to go finish up some homework. Bye.

Holagurrl has signed off.

I got up and walked over to my closet and picked out a pair of satin pajamas and a white long-sleeve shirt and I put my UGGs on. My clothes had gotten soaked outside and even though they were dry, they were still all cold and stiff.

 I re-read the private chat Alicia and I had. What could she possibly have to tell me about Mason? That she doesn’t like him? That we don’t look cute together? I shook my head free of all the thoughts. It’s probably nothing serious. I thought to myself. I took my UGGs off and slipped on the pair of pointe shoes Alicia gave me so that I could wear them for dance. I moved some of my furniture around so I had more room, and I went over the dance Alicia and I had thought of so far.

I could see myself in the mirror in front of me from time to time, and I looked pretty graceful. I wonder if I’ll still be dancing like this after I hear what Alicia has to tell me.

I hope you all enjoyed that post and I hope you had an amazing Christmas! Be looking out for my new year’s posts! I’ll post one on New Year’s Eve and one on New Year’s Day!

Thanks for reading!

Keep on loving ♥

Let’s rewind and remember. ♥∞

Hey, this post won’t continue the story I started, because I want to take a moment to rewind and remember. ♥∞

So, the reason I  haven’t done a post in a super long time is because I have been so busy with school! I barely had anytime for IMing with all you girls, and updating anything on my blog, so I’m really sorry about that!

I want to start off this post by talking about the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting that occured in Newtown, Connecticut on December 14th, 2012. A total of 6 adults that were teachers, 8 boys, and 12 girls were killed that day. My sister was watching the news and there was a Moment of Silence for those children. Every time the bell chimed, an innocent child’s face appeared on the screen.

So  many teachers risked their lives for their students. I heard one story about a teacher who got killed in that shooting. The gunman came into her classroom, but before he did, the teacher hid all of her students in closets and cabinets. She told him that all the students were in the gym. He shot her and left. Why would anyone want to kill such innocent people?

To ALL victims of the Sandy Hook shooting, our hearts are with you, and we will always remember you. ♥∞

So, today is 12/21/12! Everyone who thinks the world will end: CALM YOSELVES! Today, the Mayans have ended their calendar cycle. But, they are ending it, so they can start a new calendar! It’s pretty much how we change our calendars for a new year! It isn’t the end of the world, it’s the end of the Mayan’s calendar cycle!

So, before you post a status about the world ending, remember this! 😉

So, Christmas is just around the corner! What’re you guys hoping to get as presents this year? If you haven’t heard, LMB is thinking of throwing an online Christmas part on AIM! We don’t know all the deets yet, but make sure you ask her about it if you want to get more info on it!

Ahh New Years! I can’t wait! I am SO ready for 2013! 2012 was a pretty sad year! These are some of the things that happened this year, and I am shocked when I read them over, because it’s just really sad:

Sandy Hook shooting 😦

Hurricane Sandy 😦

Dark Knight Rises shooting. 😦

The London Olympics. 😀

If I missed anything, let me know in the comments.

So, 2012 was a crazy episode! I just really can’t believe that this year is almost over! It went by super fast for me! So, what are your girl’s new year’s resolutions for 2013? Leave them in the comments below!

I’ll be doing another New Year’s post on New Year’s Ever and January 1st so keep an eye out!

With love,

TAIP

§And it’s dark in a cold December, but I’ve got you to keep me warm§

I’ m happily typing this away on my Mac laptop, my fingers, painted in “Frostbite” by China Glaze, bouncing along the keys. I feel like getting up, and jumping up and down, but I don’t want to mess up my hair. However, I’m also pretty confused. Why? You’ll find out.

_________________________________________

“Kay, I’ll see you later,” I said to my boyfriend, Mason, as I walked up to the front door of the estate.

“Bye babe.” he replied, turned around, and walked away. I unlocked the door, and entered the estate. I kicked off my shoes and quickly raced up my room to tell the PC about my new boyfriend. I grabbed my iPhone off of my nightstand and speed-dialed the PC.

“Hey chica!” Alicia said enthusiastically through the phone.

“Hey Mass!” Dylan said. I waited for Kristen to answer her phone but she never did. Guess I’ll just tell Kristen over IM.

“Hey! I have something super exciting to tell you!” I practically shouted over the phone.

“What?!” Dylan and Alicia asked at the same time.

“I just went on my first date with Mason!” I answered excitedly.

“EMG, really?”

“Mhm! His name’s Mason Tyler, he’s a total HART!” I told Alicia and Dylan.

“Ah-mazing x 10!” Dylan shrieked.

“Yeah…totally, congratz Mass.” Alicia said calmly. “Umm, my mom is telling me to get off the phone, I gotta go. I’ll talk to you later Mass. Bye.” Alicia hung up. I was confused…why was she so calm all of a sudden?

“Kay, Mass, I’ll talk to you over IM later. Bye!” Dylan said before hanging up the phone. I opened up my laptop to email Mason, but thought better of it. We just went on a date. I don’t want to seem all stalker-ish and email him right after. Suddenly, my laptop dinged. An IM from Leesh, that was fast.

HOLAGURRL: I need to tell you something. But, I’ll tell you tomorrow, k?

I replied quickly.

MASSIEKUR: Why tomorrow? Just tell me now.

 HOLAGURRL: Can’t. Just wait. Ttyl, chica. 

MASSIEKUR: Wait!

Holagurrl has signed off. 5:26 PM.

I slowly walked over to my window seat, sat down, and started to think about what Alicia has to wait until tomorrow to tell me. My thoughts were interrupted by my mom’s voice over the white intercom in the corner of my bedroom. “Massie, honey. Come down for dinner now.”

“K, be there in a sec.” I quickly replied. I applied a fresh coat of MAC lip gloss and went downstairs. All through dinner, I wasn’t eating very much, because all I could think about was what Alicia was going to tell me.

“Massie, are you okay?” my mom asked curiously.

“Yeah mom, I’m fine, thanks.” I replied quietly. I finished half of the food that was on my plate, and went to get Bean for our nightly walks. I changed into my Juicy sweats, my chestnut UGGS, and my gray beanie, and I headed outside, inhaling the fresh, crisp air outside, then drowning in my thoughts. After a few times walking around the estate, I returned home and went up to my room.

I decided to practice my dance, since Alicia had taught me some moves earlier this week and had insisted that I join the dance class at OCD. I didn’t object. It’s about time that I did some sports at OCD, and I think I’ll wind up liking it. As I turned the music up on my computer, Bean started barking at it, but I quieted him down. I only knew a few moves, but I kept repeating them over and over to get my mind off of things. Suddenly, my phone rang. I turned the music down and walked over to get my phone from my nightstand. I heard Dylan’s voice on the line.

“Hey! I’m back! I heard you joined dance at school.” Dylan said with her mouth full.

“Yeah, Leesh told me that I should join, so I did.” I replied. “And, don’t talk with your mouth full.” I giggled.

“Sorry.” Dylan said as she swallowed the rest of the food that was in her mouth. “But, I heard that there’s another group in dance that’s trying to take over OCD, aka, take over your spot.” Dylan said.

“What?!” I said worriedly.

“It’s true. I think her name’s Ariana or something. Are you gonna drop out of dance?” Dylan asked.

“I can’t. Leesh would be mad at me. And, hey, if at first you don’t succeed, you’re not an alpha. I’m going to give this girl and her so-called clique, a taste of their own medicine. I gotta go. I’ll talk to you later!” I said quickly, and I hung up the phone.

I’m Massie Block. And I always win. 😉

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hey everyone! Sorry for posting this so late! I actually started working on this post a few hours ago, but I had to leave for a Thanksgiving party! But anyways, it’s still Thanksgiving! While, before, or after reading this post, listen to this Thanksgiving song! A lot of people think she’s the new Rebecca Black.

What are you girls thankful for? I am definitely most thankful for my family! Read a mini paragraph (only a few sentences long) that I wrote myself below about how thankful I am to have the opportunities I do! This is one day every 364 days where we can be thankful about what we have, and really think about how we should never throw anything we have away and never, ever take anything for granted!

So, what are you girls doing for Thanksgiving this year? I am going to a family friend’s house to celebrate in a few hours! I hope you all have a lot of fun today and remember to be thankful! Remember: Thanksgiving isn’t just about the food. 😉 But partly it is. 

I know this post is short, but I’m not going to do anything Role-playing related! We only get one day each year to realize what we have, and I really want to make this post about that to remind all of you girls.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

The Thanksgiving paragraph I wrote!!!

I am thankful for a lot of things. Technology, clothes, friends, a roof over my head. However, I am most thankful for my amazing family, and the gift of life. I love my family more than anything in this world! Even more than… *gulp* my 53 inch fat teddy named Teddy Beary! I love you buddy! My family is always there when I need them and always have my back. Whenever anyone has a problem, another family member will be there to help them, no matter what. A lot of people take their belongings, friends, and even family for granted a lot of the time. But luckily there is one day in the whole entire year that we can realize how amazing all our opportunities actually are, even though we should be thankful every single day of our lives. We are lucky enough to have everything we could ask for, when kids in third world countries, are dying everyday. I love my family and without their support, I wouldn’t be where I am today, and I won’t ever be able to say thank you enough. Don’t take what you have for granted, because tomorrow isn’t guaranteed. Happy Thanksgiving!
