Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope that you all had a great time with your family/friends or even just by yourself. I know Christmas is supposed to be about family and whatnot, but I still hope you all got a shitload of presents cause those are the best part of Christmas. You know it, too.


1. It looks like I just got up right? But, nope. I had woken up like an hour and a half earlier in order to shower and put on make up. Ahaha! I didn’t want to look like shit in any of my pictures.


2. All of our presents and the tree. This year I actually got to decorate it. Usually my mom puts it up when I’m not around and decorates it herself… apparently my decorating skills aren’t good enough for her~

My younger brother, William, and my older brother also helped decorate the tree. It was funny because my younger brother kept putting the ball ornaments super close together and they looked like, well, BALLS. There were literal blue balls hanging off of my Christmas tree. Fml.


3. Our stockings. Mine is in the middle. I didn’t bother buying anyone stocking stuffers cause I was too ghetto for that.


4. I made these pretty little snowflake ornaments out of paper! They took me forever to make… Pretty right?

William, being an asshole of  child and a typical brother, looked at them and said, “look at those ugly snowflakes!” UGLY? Wtf? I spend 3 fucking hours on those and he calls them ugly?!?! I was this close to going god-fucking-zilla on this child. My family all laughed WITH his AT me. Fuck. I was so pissed.

Last time I bother making anything for them…

5. All of the holiday chocolate! Inside of those bags are brownies. I made them as gifts for people who I didn’t have enough money to buy presents for, lol


6. Close up of some presents. Even my kitty got one! William asked for a mixer from Santa and “Santa” got him one. Oh to be young and actually get what you want under the tree.

Every year my family tells me to make a list of the things I want. And every year they never get me anything that’s on it… seriously why do I bother? I mean I like the gifts they get me and everything, but do I need to go through the effort of making a list if they’re just going to ignore it?


7. Myrtle was getting in the Christmas spirit. Actually he was just up there to attack the mini tree and the ornaments hanging around.


8. I wish my cat was a camwhore too~ He never wants to take pictures with me


9. Me and my stocking. I used to have another one with this fatass snowman on it but I don’t know where it went… So this year I got stuck with berries /sigh

10. Me and my momma. She’s so… yellow. I never noticed until now, but holy crap!


11. The older brother. Do you like the way our scarves are flipped to the same side? So chic haha

12. The ornament my younger brother made at school. So. freaking. cute. He sewed it and decorated all by himself. Awwwwwwwwwww!


13. Women in the kitchen and men lazing around waiting for their food. How 1800s is my household?


14. My cute kitty wearing my favorite hat ♥ He is one effeminate little creature.

Gingerbread huts

The other day I went over to a friend’s house to make gingerbread huts. Yes, huts not houses. I have this weird habit of calling houses huts… Hence, ginger huts.

I just thought I’d make a quick post and show off my decorating skills!

The before shots! We got a kit since it’s easier than baking our own gingerbread. My friend also bought more candy ’cause we’re fat kids like that.

The front of the finished hut,

Close ups of the front. The ginger kid back there looks like some rapist who’s about to take the snowman somewhere for a “good time.”

My friend decorated the front of the hut and one side of it. She also did the about-to-get-raped snowman.

I decorated this side, which is why it gets a bigger picture ahaha!

I also decorated the back (that probably no one will end up seeing lol). My favorite part is the door. It looks so log cabin esque, no?

Us with the finished product! It was so much fun to make~ Usually I’d say something about eating it, but I never eat gingerbread huts, or houses, after I’ve made them. I only eat the candy and the rest gets chucked in the bin.

Also, I’ll be making a post about Christmas in the next few days, so look forward to that! ^^

I want a new camera so bad!

If you’ve been reading my Makeup Challenge posts, you’ve probably seen me carping about my p.o.s (piece of shit, for anyone who didn’t know) camera. Sure, it takes alright pictures but if I’m going to be putting pictures online I would like them to be nothing short of perfect. And alright is no where near being in the same ballpark as perfect.

So right now I’ve got a Sony something. It’s so lame I don’t even know the name lah~ Anyways, it has the word Cyber-shot on it, so maybe that’s the name? I have no facking idea.

It looks like that. And it took me at least 5 minutes to find a picture of this bad boy. Is it so awful that people don’t even want to take pictures of it?

The reason we got this camera was because it was cheap. What can I say? My mom and I are thrifty cheap skates and we didn’t want to spend a lot of money.

BAD DECISION!

Why not spend the money on something that you are using to document the important moments in your life? Do you want to look back and only have shitty looking pictures to remind you of what you used to do? Shit pic = shit memory, imo.

Let’s face it: we’re only young once. We’re only pretty once. Why waste the pretty years with a shit camera?

When I am old, decrepit, and ugly, I would like to look at my youthful pictures and be able to gloat about how attractive I was. Besides, no one wants to take pictures of you when you have saggy boobs, wrinkles, and no hair. So, I might as well live up my camwhore days while I can.

But I can’t live them up if I have a p.o.s camera! It’s ridiculous. So for the next little while I’ll be wheedling and begging and mooching around trying to find someone willing to spring $550 for a camera for me.

I’m willing to pay for the GST, which means that my cat’s neutering fund will be emptied. But, hey! it’s for a good cause. I’m quite sure that he wants me to be able to camwhore to my heart’s content.

Besides, he’s never let out of my house so it’s not like he’s got any lady cats around that he can impregnate. I’m sure that if he escapes he will be too awed at the world to tang any ladies before he’s caught. My poor destined-to-be-a-virgin-for-life kitty. Maybe I’ll buy him a blow up cat for Christmas or something…

Do you know what starts tomorrow?!

Do you know what starts tomorrow? Can you take a guess?

…Ready?!

ADVENT CALENDARS! Yeeeeuh! I have no idea why I am so excited, but I am! Who doesn’t want to get a piece of chocolate everyday? That is apart from lactose intolerants and people on diets.

But the start of December means that Christmas is almost here… I only have about 7 cards made and no presents at all. Oh and I have a $2 budget for approximately 15 people. Mother fucker. I may just have to pick up a few more shifts on the street corner. And it’s so cold outside… sigh.

Also, in December I’ll be starting two 30 day challenges. Yes, 2 of them. I did make a poll a few days back and only 2 people voted… ahaha! Hey, it’s better than none! So thank you to those 2 voters. I appreciate you! Anyways, I decided that I would do what they voted for: different makeup each day with pictures and daily vlogs.

In addition, I have a bunch of other things that I need to do this month. Apply for university, find a job, buy a nice dress, finish sewing what I started in the summer, actually start exercising, etc etc. December is going to be a busy, busy month.

So, if I start slacking a little bit with the blog or videos, I’m sorry! But don’t say I didn’t warn you… I promise I will do my best to keep updating as often as I can!

I have a love-hate relationship with Christmas.

As you probably know, Christmas is in less than a month. I think that almost everyone has a bit of a love hate relationship with Christmas. It has it’s good points, like getting presents, decorating, and getting time off of school/work. But it’s also a giant pain in the ass.

Every year around this time I am always struck by the fact that I have to buy tons of gifts with a small amount of money. I don’t have a job or anything (I have accepted that I will never be hired), so all I usually have to use the money that I get for my birthday to pay for presents. Which sucks, because I’m a greedy kid and I don’t want to use all my birthday money buying things for other people.

My other problem with Christmas is that I never know who I am supposed to buy presents for and how much I should be spending on them. Which family members do I buy for? Just the immediate ones? Do I buy for all of my friends? I’m not a big fan of the awkward “are we buying for each other?” conversation. And, call me selfish, but I don’t want to buy someone a gift if they aren’t going to buy me one. There are times where I am pretty selfless and I’ll just randomly get people gifts, but I am downright selfish during the Christmas season. What can I say? I love the presents.

This year I decided to try and put an end to my  Christmas woes. I decided to hand make the majority of my gifts in order to save money and I toughed it out and had the awkward conversation with the people who I am buying for. Hopefully, this year I will be able to just have a love relationship with Christmas.
