Coral Crush (NOTW)

Hey all! I did these nails were done in the summer, but I saved the pictures just to show you guys. I really love the colour, even though I don't think the name matches the colour much. The name of this Santee polish is Neon Pink.It looks closer to coral than pink to me, but it is very bright and fun like most neons.

It's been grueling already... but videos are coming !

Hi everyone! (PS: I was typing this from my tablet and on 4 hours of sleep, so please excuse any typos.)
College is back in session and with a bang. I am still feeling a bit unprepared, but luckily I don't think I'm the only one. Not only the students but the lecturers seem a bit weary and out of sorts.

The other night I had a prep for a lab I had signed up to help out with so I would learn some technique, however none of us not even the instructor knew that time and resources would come to be our enemies. So here it was 12 am and the really challenging parts hadn't been done as yet. I don't think I left until it was 2 am, oh for love of subject.

Searching around for reagents delegating tasks and making sure we were doing the right thing, not the mention how much stair climbing I did. I don't think I'd had a workout like that since PE in 3rd form (14 years old). Did I mention that I had a class for 8 am class the next day? Oh my gosh was it hard to get out of bed at 6:30.

We had a good group of people with us though, stopped many from falling asleep and considering it was our first time, I think we did a good job.

I still have one last back to school video to post. The well awaited outfits for school. Mind you I'm not a diva when it comes to school, I would choose comfort over fashion most days, though I still do have my weird style to it. So for the video, I tried to strip out of my box of practical jeans and easy graphic tees for something a bit more fun and cute. If I had no labs, or wasn't always at school for hours on end, especially in these chilly classrooms, then I'd be killing these outfits. Who knows though, I might just wear a couple when I have a light day. :)

Strangely enough, I have not felt like vlogging my back to school experiences. I just think it's a bit too boring. It is final year and so far not much exciting things have happened. But we'll see.

My August favourites is coming, I'd love to have it up before the week is out actually, so I may complete editing that today.

That's all for now. How has your first day been? Is back to school as exciting as the ads make it? Or are you just having a settling week like I am? Feeling a bit unprepared or anxious as to what this semester will hold? Why not tell me about it in the comments!

Back to School MAKE UP! ♡

Hey all! So here I have 2 different tutrials for school using the same palette. My Sleek Make up "Oh So Special" palette. This is a nice neutral palette for everyday and I was able to create two very easy looks with it.
For school I think if anything at all you should moisturise, groom your eyebrows (and make them look decent as I say), and highlight those peekers especially if you wear glasses. You could also use a bit of concealer on blemishes or under your eyes for an instant lift!

The first tutorial is a natural, ready-to-run-out-the-door look, while the second is more polished, with some more effort put into eyeliner and contouring the eye area.

To see them, just click on the videos below!

Back to school ESSENTIALS! ♡

Aside from the books and all the other stationery you should be carrying for school, here's what I think would be useful in any make up bag!

I barely carry any make up, just not my thing when it comes to school. I don't have the patience to be in bathrooms reapplyign anything. I just like to get to classes on time and chill in my free time. It's college anyways, so what if your eyebrows aren't done?

One thing you always should have in your bag, whether a guy or girl, is a MIRROR. I don't mean so you can stare at yourself forever more, but there are certain things you should always be able to check on. Like your teeth after having lunch or a snack. How embarrassing is it to be chatting up a girl or to be talking to a cute guy and there's remnants of lunch staring them in the face? (Don't forget chewing gum or tooth paste is also very important.)

If you want to know what else I think is essential for any make up bag, then check out my video below!

Lazy Sunday Chit Chat: School & Fall

Hey all! Finally got back to writing these chit chats which I missed posting. This Sunday is the final day of vacation before dreaded school starts back. I know it's not great to have such a bad attitude about school because it will benefit me in the long-run, but really I'm just feeling sad about it starting again.

This year is my final year of university and despite having registered, I don't feel ready to return tomorrow. I feel like a need another week to upload videos, read blogs and to go buy school supplies, which I have slacked on purchasing this summer. Very unlike me, because I love stationery and that's what excites me most about going to school.

Regardless, I don't feel like my summer has been wasted at all this year. I may not have gotten a paying job, but I did many things which I'm very happy about, spent time with friends and family, kept my videos and post very consistent and even had some new adventures, one which you will hopefully be seeing very soon. (Hint: it has something to do with film.) Some things this summer could have been better, but I'm hoping as the year goes by that I can improve that. 

I have big goals for this school year  which I will hopefully achieve to the best of my ability as well as quickly. Funny thing though, at the beginning of the school year I feel more inclined to make life changes or set new goals than at New Years.

Speaking of school, you may have noticed that I'm doing Back to School videos. A tad late, but nonetheless informative, so make sure to check it out. I'll have a direct link to the related posts in the right sidebar.

Anyway, I've also been thinking about Fall. The season not the action haha. I know in Barbados we don't get Fall or Autumn as some call it, just year-long sunshine or the occasional rainfall. It's the one thing that makes me envoious of the countries with 4 seasons. I love cold weather apparel, the cute woolen UGG boots, oversized knit sweaters, and hoodies. Leggings (the one of the only times it's acceptable to wear leggings as pants), calf-high leather boots, funky socks, super comfy pajamas, scarves and of course, beanies and barets!

This year I'm hoping to do a fall lookbook using Polyvore, taken inspiration from the MBFW Fall 2012 collections. I've already started compiling looks I want to recreate or add my own quirks to.
If you have any suggestions for looks, don't hestitate to tell me. You could leave it as a comment, or email me at chrisamoryt@gmail.com.

Brown Sugar Machiatto ~Asian Candy~

Hey all! It's been a long time since I've watched an asian drama, especial Jewel in the Palace which was showing on the local channel, CBC. So here's to a new start, I really miss watching them. I can't give you my own synopsis or my view of this one because I've never watched this. This is a first right?
