Au Naturel

Happy Merry Everyone!

There is something that I've noticed lately. A lot of the people I know and see on the streets are wearing too_much_makeup! So many girls I know have fabulous features and beautiful faces to work with, but many succeed to ruin it all by packing on too much product! Many of us have forgotten about the wonders of being natural and embracing what God gave you (:
So I thought I'd do a simple makeup look with a tad of glitter, blush, and mascara- if you want ;)
You can add little things and be festive without overdoing it!
Lets start out with a fresh face- no makeup, just moisturizer.

Viimeaikoina olen huomannut tuntemissani ja kadulla kulkevissa ihmisissä sen, että monet pakkaavat nassuunsa aivan_liikaa_meikkiä! Niin monilla tuntemillani tytöillä on aivan mielettömät piirteet ja kasvot, mutta suttaavat naamansa aivan ruskeaksi aurinkopuuteroilla! Monet ovat unohtaneet luonnollisuuden kokonaan (:
Ajattelin siis tehdä kevyen meikin, johon kuuluu kuitenkin vähän glitteriä, poskipunaa ja ripsaria - jos vain haluat ;) Voi olla juhlallinen ja laitettu menemättä yli.
Aloitetaan vaan luonnollisilla kasvoilla, nassussa vain kosteusvoidetta.

No editing, no photoshop, nothing extra. So this is what I really look like.
Ei muokkauksia, ei photoshoppia, ei mitään lisää. Tältä näytän.

{ And It Hurts Like Heaven }

Hey!
So, some of you might be wondering where I've been.
As you may have guessed the answer is quite simple: IB.
Well maybe not IB, maybe the naive-spring-maria who decided to overload this term with course-on-toppa-course-on-toppa-course resulting in disaster. I had three foreign languages at once; French, Italian, and Swedish- that basically meant four words tests a week. I had my HL Maths preparatory course, which was basically 2-4 hours of math per day for dumdums like me. Also I had a lovely IB-style history course, which generally meant the teacher e-mailing us essay assignments on Sunday night- to be turned in the next morning of course. So all in all, it wasn't IB's fault, it was mine. By piling on electives like Italian, French and drama (got chosen to be head director) along with really tedious courses at once I managed to really tire myself out.
All in all, I had school from 8 to 5 everyday, carrying an eight course load.

The first couple of weeks I was doing fine, got all my work done and everything. But eventually I started to lose a lot of sleep, started to lose motivation and began falling asleep at school, the bus, the floor, everywhere.
After being accustomed to 4-6 hours of sleep, surprise surprise, I got sick. And being me, I refused to miss school and that resulted me coughing my soul out in each class, popping painkillers and antibiotics and taking two and half weeks to heal. On top of this, the arts teachers at my school decided to put me in various school performances, singing with the last droplets of my voice :(

I am a clean person, so my room was sad to be treated like that. But yeah, that was every night.

See how some of the post-its are almost empty?
That was my next-day-due essay at 12 am (turned out nine pages...)

haha except the alarm was at six - SO TRUE

I managed my time really badly during exam week and did quite poorly on my exams :/
How poorly? I'll find out on Monday when we get everything back. Shivers.

most embarrassingly my screensaver :

Okay, I had a rough time. We all have rough times. I am fine now, after sleeping excessive amounts, gobbled up way too much chocolate and watched way too much television.
IB will be way harder, and the term coming up will only be a bit easier. But here's my new motto:

Because I know where I'm headed, and :

This is how I recovered:

chocolate, ambiance lighting, blankets, Christmas films, scarves, and Christmas carols can pull anyone out of pretty much anywhere

So, I suppose you might get it now :)
And to end with something...bad.

Okay so I realize this clip is bad.
The piano is bad.
The singing is at too high and its shakey and offkey.
The lyrics are wrong! (ha!)
The quality is bad.
But all in all, in all its horrible imperfections this perfectly sums up how I've been feeling lately.
This was right after I had royally screwed up my HL prep math exam and I look exactly how I felt.



Glad to be back (:
