My Week So Far - Twins, Rings, Cake, & Pump Up Cards!

   It's been quite the spirit full week so far for me because it's Spirit Week at my school!! It's quite exciting since this year we have a lot of people participating! It starts with Sports Monday, Twining Tuesday, Wacky Wednesday, Throwback Thursday and finally our school colors on Friday with a Pep Rally! We also have a competition going on between all the grades. Whatever grade gets the most "participation points" during spirit week will also earn a chunk of money from the basket raffle on Friday! So far the seniors are in the lead which is great because we desperately need the money. (emphasizes on desperately) I'm not sure what to do for Throwback Thursday, but I'll be sure to participate. For Twining Tuesday. I teamed up with one of my friends and we attempted to look like twins. It was actually really hard to twin up. I didn't expect such a challenge, but we eventually agreed on a black top, black tights/leggings, a skirt, and boots. We both had all these items, but not in matching colors... We kinda got the twin look going hehe.

I would say we kind of have the twin look... maybe without my scarf. I got a lot of complements on my boots though =) They remind me a lot of the boots worn in Sailor Moon And Tokyo Mew Mew hehe. If I ever need to dress up as someone from those shows, I know what shoes I will be wearing!!

Pump It Up Cards Cross Country

These photos were from last week, but they are off all the pump up cards I made for my teammates before our big race. Pump Up Cards are basically decorated note cards with encouragement on the back. I remember getting these cards from the Captains as a freshman so it was crazy for me to be the one making them last week. As much as I love being a senior, I miss being a freshman!! 
For the cards, I used puffy paint, glitter and stickers to decorate. I got some glittery cupcake stickers and puffy fruit ones! It was a lot of fun to decorate because I was trying to figure out who got which stickers. Writing the encouragement on the back was a lot of fun too. It's crazy how much I got to know everyone in the spam of 2 months! I feel like I've known them forever! 

Panettone Cake
The best cake/bread in the world!! 
On another note, I was able to pick up some of this cake last week!! Can I tell you how delicious these cakes are?? They are only sold during this time of the year and it makes me super excited to be able to eat it! I don't know what it is about this cake, but it taste so much better than anything else. This cake isn't that sweet when compared to other cakes. It almost resembles bread to me. In the cake itself, there are raisins and orange peels. 

Modern Design Ring Review

Modern Design Ring Review

A few weeks ago, I was approached by Modern Design to do a review of one of their Tungsten Rings. I was hesistent to say yes because tungsten rings are meant to be more like wedding bands or rings for a man, but after looking through their site, I agreed to it. The reason being is because I found this little baby- it's the polished dome tungsten ring with pleated rope accent inlay. What sold me on this ring was the design in the center. It was simple yet elegant. I really love how it feels on my hand. It fits perfectly on my middle finger and has a nice weight to it. It's a bit heavier than your typical ring, but that is because of the material it is made from. It's made from tungsten which is super strong and can last a long time.   

Express Package

The only part that confused me about the ring was why it came shipped in so many boxes? I got the mail and noticed a pretty decent sized box. It was packaged and closed tightly (that is a plus) but after I opened it, I found a slightly smaller box inside. I was puzzled at why this was, but I proceeded to open the smaller box to discover and an en envelope inside the box. After opening the envelope, I found a tiny white envelope. (sorry for the lack of pictures, but it was tiny) Inside the envelope was a clear zip up bag and finally inside of that was my ring!! I'm not sure why they used so many boxes/envelopes, but I guess it keeps thing ring safe from being damaged or stolen. It's just interesting because now I have a bunch of extra boxes hehe. =)

Have you ever had to twin with someone? 
Have you ever worn a tungsten ring?
Who loves stickers as much as I do? (hehe, I sort of have love collecting stickers, especially the fun ones that move, sparkle, change .. I'm just strange!)

  13. It's so funny that you love panettone...It's one of the italian specialties I grew up with!
    :) I don't really like the one that comes from the store, though... If you liked that one you should definitely try a HOMEMADE one, or from an italian bakery! They are sooo yummy!
    Love your ring btw :)

    1. ohhh my !! Are your serious about the homemade one?!
      You make me really excited now because I know how homemade food is much better than the store food!!! I think that since I do love this one, the real/homemade ones must be the best things ever!!!

  17. Why does one tiny ring need such a big box? Such a waste of money and resources. I have never heard of Spirit Week but it sounds so much fun!! Really reminds me of the things we did for my last week of school as a senior. My grade held a teddy bear's picnic day, Harry Potter day, a flash mob... ahhh :)

  22. Your themed week sounds like such great fun, you both look so pretty, loving the skirts. I think maybe the ring was packaged that way to protect it? Its a good idea for giving a guy a present.I appreciate your visit, have a great Friday!
