Who Else Misses Boy Meets World?

Am I the only one who wonders why Eric went from being normal (just stupid) to being crazy? Eric was always funny, but crazy Eric was the best! I love this show so much! It's a shame there aren't many like it anymore :(

School Blogging

Hey everyone! I am blogging straight from class today :) Aren't I such a good student? The teacher had to step out for a little bit, so I figured, why not blog?
Since I am in class, doing a review or something of that sort would be a little hard. (Time wise and I don't have any products with me to review.) I thought this would be a good time to do more of a personal blog. So here it is:

                                                       
  10 Random Facts About Me
10) My middle name is Elisabeth. Yes, it is spelled with an S, not a Z.
9) I'm a Capricorn, and I am almost exactly like my sign.
8) I admire Coco Chanel.
7) If I could meet anyone in the world, it would be Torrie Wilson! (Love her!)
6) I am studying to be a Paralegal.
5) I am double jointed in my arms, legs, ankles, and fingers. (I can turn my entire arm around.)
4) I broke my foot and sprained my ankle, but I hardly felt a thing.
3) "A women should be two things, classy and fabulous." Is what I live by.
2) I do most of the cooking/baking in my house.
1) Natalie Wood is my favorite actress! R.I.P Natalie Wood.

Well, there you have it. Ten random facts, when I probably should have gone over my class notes :-p

Top 15 Girly Movies

What girl doesn't love a good chick flick every now and then? I must admit, most of my favorite movies are not chick flicks, but I love a good girly movie. Here are my top 15:

15.  Angus, Thongs, and Perfect Snogging
This was just such a cute film. 
14. 27 Dresses
These love stories always end the same, but the 'always a bridesmaid never a bride' theme gave it a great twist. 
13. The Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants 2
A great follow-up to the first one. I love the way they all come together just when it seems like they can't.
12. The Wishing Well
I'm not sure how popular this movie is, but I thought it was just so cute! It's a hallmark movie. They have such cute movies. Their Christmas movies are also really good :)
11.  A Walk To Remember
Very sweet, and somewhat sad. I say somewhat, because with Jamie just being in his life, Landon turned into a better person.
10.The Devil Wears Prada
I loved the enhancement on the shallowness of the fashion industry. The Devil Wears Prada took it to the extreme, but in a fabulous way!
9. The Notebook
I know people are going to think I am crazy for putting this as number nine, but my brother wore this movie out for me. If not for him, it would be higher. P.S. My brother, who was about 24 at the time, cried during this and A Walk To Remember :D
8. Ramona and Beezus
I adore this film. It is perhaps, the cutest film I have watched. I took my little cousin to see this, and we both loved it. It's a great movie to watch with your little sis!
7. The Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants 1
The first films is always the best!
6. Mean Girls
Getting so close to the end makes it difficult to chose. I still love this movie, but seeing it as much as I did, I can't put it as high as I would a year or two ago. 
5. Monte Carlo
I also saw this with my little cousin. I love both Selena Gomez and Leighton Meester. It was a great film. I was surprised. I thought this often-told story would be a little repetitive. The movie proved me wrong. 
4. Tuck Ever Lasting
This is an AMAZING movie! Several years later, and I'm still in love :)
3. Grease 
Nothing like a fun musical, and Grease is one of the best!
2. John Tucker Must Die
This was very funny. I love the character of Kate. This movie may not be the most creative, but the old tale was done amazingly. 
1. Girls Just Want To Have Fun
This has to be number one on my list. The soundtrack is amazing, I love the story, the dancing, and the actors. All around this is a great movie!

I Have A Secret...

I said I wanted this blog to be a bit more personal. To do that, I have to be honest. It's not something that upsets me, or am ashamed of. Here it is...
I have an auto immune disease called Evans Syndrome.
http://www.evanssyndrome.org/
My platelets and hemoglobins drop dangerously low.
I've had Evans Syndrome since I was sixteen. This year I had a total of fourteen transfusions and been on steroids. I use to take ten a day. Thank goodness that is over! They gave me a lot of side affects.
The good news...I have been in remission for four months!! :)
The bad news...I can't even ride a bike. :(
See, my blood doesn't clot. Therefore, I hemorrhage.
When I was seventeen I had a bone marrow biopsy. I remember thinking, "Oh, it's no big deal. They just stick a big needle in your hip, and take some of your bone marrow." I didn't think my doctor (who has been practicing for a long time) would mess up...Well he did. I got really sick afterwards. I had a blood infection and almost died. I think it is safe to say I never went back to that doctor again.

Right now, I am doing great. The previous treatments I had seem to be working great! I just wanted to share this, because it is a big part of my life and daily decisions. Evans Syndrome is rare, so I don't expect anyone to have heard about it.

My Fun and Flirty Eye Look


This look can be replicated pretty easily. All of the products used were from the drugstore. For the lid, I used a neutral color. The color used was the creamy neutral color in the Maybelline New York Eye Studio, in the 60 Spirited Seas quad. In the crease and outer corner of my eye I used a matted black. I used the black in the Loreal  Wear Infinite Studio Secrets quad, in 904 Smokey Eyes. For the brow bone and tear duct, I just used a sheer, white, highlight. I find just about any highlight color will do the trick. Revlon False Lashes, Rimmel Sexy London Curves Mascara, and Maybelline black Eye Liner to finish off the look.

This is a pretty and fast look. It's perfect for when you want to give your makeup routine a little something extra, but are short on time.  I've gotten many compliments on this eye makeup, so I thought I would share! :)
