My 19th Birthday (+ Haul)!

Last Friday, the 19th, I turned 19! I spent the day going to school for a class (in which my prof insisted the class sing happy birthday to me) and then I went out for dinner with my parents and later we watched 21 Jump Street! I didn't have a party or anything but I did get visit a friend the day after to go see a band play, and now I'm visiting another friend for the week!

I thought I'd do a mini birthday haul showing you the things I got! My parents got me:

A 25mm curling wand! My sister has a curling wand but it's really skinny, so I wanted a bigger one for myself!

This skull print shirt! I love basically anything black and white with skulls, so this shirt is perfect.

This floral shirt! I've had my eye on this for about a month, and in the most recent episode of Glee, Santana was wearing it which kind of made me want it more :P!

The Urban Decay Naked2 palette!!! I've wanted a UD palette for sooo long, and this is my first one! I'm obsessed with it!

My best friend also got me a couple of things:
She got me a Slatkin & Co. candle in the scent Midnight Pomegranate, and the book Looking For Alaska by John Green (who's my favourite author)! I actually used to own this book and I read it a couple of years ago but I have no idea where my copy of the book went, so I'm glad I have it again!

Here are a few photos from my day as well!

This is the outfit I wore out to dinner with my parents. I got the dress for Christmas last year and have only worn it a few times, but I love it! It's from Charlotte Russe.

I got my first legal drink! Haha. I don't usually drink, but I just got one cause I could! :P

And here are a few pictures of my parents and I at the restaurant! We went to Jack Astor's.

Nail of the Day: Matte Black French Manicure

Hi everyone! Sorry it's been so long since I posted last! Last Friday was my birthday so I didn't get around to making a Friday Favourites post! I will be making a post about my birthday and what I got sometime soon though!

I've wanted a matte top coat for so long now, but haven't had any luck in finding one. But last night at WalMart I found an NYC one for only $2, so I got it! I'm really happy with it so far and I'm glad I didn't have to spend $10 to get Essie's Matte About You or something!

Nail of the Day: Yin Yangs

MissJenFabulous did a tutorial on yin yang nails a few weeks ago, and I've been wanting to try the design since! I'm really happy with how they came out!

This pie! I really want to make a pie sometime this fall since I never have before!

The photos of Demi Lovato from her Teen Vogue shoot. She's so stunning!

This made me laugh.

Ahh this precious baby sloth!

This Frankenweenie cake! I really want to see this movie too!

Pitch Perfect! I saw the movie twice this week (once with friends, once with my mom) and absolutely loved it.

My best friend came home over the weekend and we made pumpkin cupcakes! They were so yummy!

It was my dad's birthday on the 7th and my cat wanted to help me decorate the cake I made :3 haha.

I went to a local farm on Thanksgiving with my family and we saw llamas and went through their giant corn maze!

I tried this dress on at The Bay and fell in love with it. Hopefully I can get it sometime soon!

Nail of the Day: Mickey Mani

I finally got the nail dotting tools I ordered from eBay in the mail! So expect a lot more nail art posts coming from me! I have a bunch of ideas I want to try :). I did this manicure inspired by ChrissyAi's Mickey nails she posted on instagram!

I really love how this manicure turned out, and it was really easy to do!

Michelle and Gary

Last weekend I took some pictures of my sister, Michelle, and the horse she rides, Gary. I thought the photos came out nice so I thought I'd share a few with you!

Friday Favourites

This photo of a bat! I love the light going through its wings.

This fabulous bag! Photos from Kaylah/The Dainty Squid, and check out the bags here!

This illustration made me laugh.

This super cute monkey!

This fox bowtie is adorable.

This kitty in a chair!

I love this lace bow barette from Forever 21! I think it'd be really cute to wear with a sock bun!

One of my favourite youtubers, danisnotonfire, uploaded this video yesterday and it made me laugh SO hard!

This is a makeup look I've been wearing a lot so far this season! I use my Revlon Colorstay quad in Adventurous with a bit of MAC Embark in the crease and a winged liner!

Call me immature, but the song title was cut off and I thought it was pretty hilarous x)!

An outfit I wore to school this week! This was my first time wearing this necklace I got from eBay! Sometimes I like wearing all black, and this day I paired an all-black outfit with my burgundy tights!

Nail of the Day

Hey everyone! Last night I wanted to paint my nails, but I wasn't sure how I should do them. Then I started going through Kaylah from The Dainty Squid's nail posts on her blog and was so inspired! That lady has some fantastic nails. I had a lot of fun doing this manicure and it was actually pretty simple to do! If anyone is interested in a DIY let me know!

The nail polishes I used (L to R) are: Barielle Shades in Do Unto Others, Maybelline Color Show in Chiffon Chic, and Barielle Shades in Grape Escape. I will definitely be doing my nails like this again with different colour combinations too! I think next I'll be using more fall shades!
