Cincinnati's Premium Outlets Haul

If you read Saba's blog, http://mylaughsandmylife.blogspot.com/ , you know that yesterday we went to the Cincinnati's Premium Outlets! We didn't really get to go to many stores, but we did find cute stuff from the few stores that we went to. Here's a quick haul of what I got:












From Rue 21












From Rue 21












From Dressbarn












From Charlotte Russe (OMG!!!! their sales racks were color coded!!!! How cool is that??)












Charlotte Russe (I thought that this was SUPER cute! it has bows on the shoulders and the bottom is supposed to be kinda on your waist... It was also super sheer so I bought the black cami to wear under it and I also really needed a black cami)












From Gap












From Rue 21

It was the first time I went to the Cincinnati's Premium Outlets so it was kinda a cool experience!





OOTC!

If you're wondering what OOTC stands for, it's Outfit of the Concert. (lol I totally just made that up :) ) Well anyways, we had our last ever middle school band concert on Thursday :(
Since it was out last concert, all eighth graders got to dress up! So I just made a quick video after the concert showing what I wore. Here it is:

Oh yeah I almost forgot! Pretend that you didn't see the messy background... It was the best place with good lighting so yeah.

Where have I been?

Yes, I know I haven't posted in a LONG LONGGG time! I do have a bunch of reasons though. The main reason was that I was preparing for my ABRSM exam that I actually took today! Here are some questions that you might have:
What does ABRSM stand for?
It stands for Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music.
What is ABRSM?
It is basically a series of tests that consists of 8 different levels. There are two main tests that you have to take during the year. One was the one that I took today at Mason, Ohio. It was more of a playing, sight reading, aural, and things like that test. The other one is the theory one which is around October.
What happens when you participate in ABRSM?
Since people have to fly from England all the way to the United States to hear a bunch of people play, it is a pretty big deal! If you score high enough, it can look really good on your records. Even though I'm glad I am doing ABRSM, it is also SUPER DUPER time consuming. (There is also a kinda expensive fee though :( For example, I just took grade six, and it cost around 107 USD *price goes higher as the level gets higher)

Anyways, summer is approaching and I will definitely try to do a post every day or every other day! I will also do a small haul of the few things that I bought today from the Cincinnati's premium outlet, so look for it soon!

Epic haul!!!!

So today my mom , Saba (twin sister), and I went to the mall to look for graduation dresses and stuff. It was an amazing shopping trip! Everything thing that I bought except for one was on sale! I will post the price that I got each item for below the item. So first we went to Macy's to look for dresses. There were some awesome dresses on sale. I don't even know if I am going to wear these for the dance or graduation but i just bought them because I needed some anyways.




















Macy's for $24.15
Original was about $70

Next we went to Hollister and there were a lot of things on sale but the only thing I got was this shirt:




















Hollister for 15.90

Just as usual we stopped by Sephora and found some awesome stuff for sale. I got the jumbo eye pencils in the color "pinky grey". (The photo does not show the color, pinky grey)

Sephora for $4
Original $6 (not much of a save but good enough :D )


We also found some deals at Claires. I found so many pretty stuff! so first i got a headband and a necklace that I thought were so cute!












Claire's for $5.50




















Claire's for 7.25
Original price was $14.50

At the checkout the lady told us that their flower clips were 50% and up off so we went back and checked them out. Saba and I found these two cute hair clips :D

I hope that this helped those of you who are looking for dance or graduation dresses and more!

Night/face Routine

This post is basically about what I do at night before I go to the bed or just regularly for my face. so every night I either wash my face with neutrogena transparent facial bar or regular soap.
around $2-3

Then, I use the Epiduo cream. This product is Ah-mazing!!!! I REALLY love it! It's really expensive though. It's hard to believe the price for just a tube. So the regular price is $202.50! BUT, I get mine for only around $30. I wouldn't recommend this product at all if you don't have a dermatalogist. (might not be the right product for you)


That's basically all I do at night. So the next product is the Neutrogena deep clean foaming scrub. I only use this in the shower about 2 times a week. This product makes my skin feel really smooth and clean after use.
around $7

I do in some cases use different moisturizers when I need to but they're usually my mom's and I don't really remember the names. :( Yeah so this is basically what I do for my face and I forgot to say this but i usually wash my face when I wake up and before I go to bed. I hope you guys enjoyed!

CKYO concert

Today was Saba's last ckyo concert of the year. It was actually pretty fun. There were a bunch of people from LTMS! I saw Ji-yeon, Angeline, Alice, Eric, Chelsea, Sam, Elliott, Abhi, Noela, Manuela, and Riley(i think thats how its spelled) and other people that played like Jessie, Henry, and Alex(used to go to LTMS 2 years ago). Anyways, for those of you who don't know what CKYO stands for, it's Central Kentucky Youth Orchestra. I know that this was just a random post, but just wanted you to know what I did today. :D

Mother's day!

So today is obviously mother's day! I didn't really buy anything for my mom... I was planning to make something for her or wash her car, but then I realize how much homework I had! :( So instead, when my dad gets home, which will be around 6, we are going to take my mom out for dinner. Also, my dad will buy flowers for my mom on his way home. We're planning to make the dinner a surprise but I don't really know how.
Okay well I might as well go ahead and do a quick update. So today I woke up at around 9:45ish, had breakfast, cleaned my room, and did homework basically the rest of the day. well in my words I did homework but when I say that, I mean doing homework 10% of the time, and getting distracted by the internet 90% of the time. It's around 2:30 right now so I have been "doing homework" for a long time now! If we go out to dinner tonight, I might do a quick OOTD!

Nail Tutorial!

Spring is here, and I thought that this fun and easy nail tutorial would be perfect for spring. All you need are three different color nail polishes, and an old dried out pen. You do not need to go out and buy any nail polishes with defining brushed or anything. The pen will work as good!

So take the lightest color that you want for a base and put it all over your nails.












My second color was glittery pink, and I dipped the pen into the tip of the brush very lightly to get the nail polish on the tip of the pen. Once I did, I started making flowers on my nails... I made the flowers on the top left corner of my nails.























Next, I took my third color, which was a beautiful blue color, and made flowers next to the pink flowers. I tried to make the blue ones a little smaller to make them different as you might have noticed.












I really like this nail tutorial because it uses different colors and I think that the flowers look really cute especially in the Spring.

long time no seen!!

Hey guys! sorry I haven't posted in a while. I have been VERY busy with everything and we had and still have more KCCT testing. I will try to start posing every or every other day after the testings and all. I will probably be doing a nail tutorial in about a week. I think that it's a great way to start off my blog. Good luck with all of you who are taking kcct tests, finals, and etc.
