My XC Medal and Favorites

 I just got back from my senior portraits at school today and to be honest, I don't know how they turned out, but I personally think that the picture I took with my sister will look the best. I hope my school pictures turned out okay because I only had one shot at it and it's the one going in the yearbook. (Yes, I did wait till the last minute to take them with my school.. because I am a huge procrastinator.) I just didn't feel ready to take the pictures in the summer because I felt too tan and not like myself, but once school started I was too busy to have my pictures taken. November is the last time they come to my school so I jumped on the appointments as soon as they were available. I was able to secure a spot for today at 2:45!!

Last Friday, I went to my 2nd ever high school football game! (1st if you don't count me playing in powderpuff freshman year, which is basically flag football for females) I'm not much of a football fan and although it was a fun experience this Friday, I don't quite regret not going more though. hehe. I think there is a bit too much hype surrounding football in high school! I don't understand the game  and boy was it cold sitting in the stands that night!! It was warmer than the previous nights, but I was on a hill and the wind up there was crazy!
The only reason though that I went to the game that night though was to get this little baby-

Cross Country Sportsmanship Medal
It was quite hard trying to take a selfie with 1 hand ! =)
Cross Country Sportsmanship Medal

Cross Country Sportsmanship Medal

It's my ECC Sportsmanship medal. Even though it isn't an "All ECC" Medal, I am very proud of myself for receiving this! The medal came in a case with our names on the back. The medal itself is gold colored with the title Eastern Connecticut Conference on it and a picture of CT. It's also got some weight to it which makes me really happy! .. (remember the plastic/paper medals they use to give us when we were younger.. well this is not plastic!!)

Football Senior Year
 I blurred the photo for privacy reasons =)
All the sports that night were receiving our rewards during halftime and here I am with everyone! Sorry for the blurry photo. I had to throw my camera to a person to snap this photo of us. It was a super cool experience but embarrassing at the same time. I felt like everyone in the stands was staring and probably wondering what we were doing in the middle of the game lol.

Nike Sports Bra

Nike Sports Bra

Another item I got related to cross country is this adorable sports bra. Ever since my freshman year on the team, we have talked about getting a team sports bra and finally we have done it! The sports bra we designed is from Nike. It's all red with a falcon on the back! How cute?! It fits really nicely and like most of Nike's gear, it does exactly as it says.

Biosilk Silk Therapy

This week, I also purchased an interesting looking product. It is a hair product by the name of Biosilk Silk Therapy. The results claimed by this product are similar to what is claimed by Garnier's Moroccan oil so I am quite excited to try it out. This one is an all liquid product and from my first impression, I noticed that it smells fantastic! The reviews online for this product seemed mostly positive so I am hoping that it will work the same for me!

Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm

Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm

I also purchased these two lip products today! They were on display and caught my attention as I passed by. I stopped and noticed that they were lipsticks from Revlon and it seemed to be a new product. The colors that I picked up were 135 provocateur femme fetale (the red one) and 125 flirtatious charameuse. (the pink one) Upon opening, I noticed that the pink color seemed to be quite dark and looked red to me hehe. The red is literally bright red so I don't know if I want to use that one, but I will be keeping the pink. This product reminds me a bit of the jumbo gloss balms by covergirl!

essie lilacism

You might have noticed this color on my nails in the previous post, but the color I have on is a polish from Essie. The color is called lilacism. It's a sweet lavender color and I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it in the store. It reminds me more of a spring color, but it still works for the winter! I have two coats of it on in the picture above =)


 To end my post today, I really wanted to share this song I found with you guys. I know this is a long post, but I really think this song is beautiful. Everything from the lyrics to the music video speaks to me. It was filmed in Iceland!! The song is in chinese, but if you hit the little button on the bottom of the video, you can have youtube place english subtitles on it. If you want a better translation of the lyrics, you can check out this link. 
The singer of this song is Hebe Tien and her new album titled, 渺小  (Insignificance) is focused on the theme of global warming and it's impact on us! If you don't know, I am a huge supporter of taking care of the environment and I love animals so this song resonates with me. I'm glad that people are finally taking notice and spreading the word! 

Have you tried Biosilk silk therapy or the Revlon Lacquer colorburst before?
What color do you currently have on your nails?
What is your opinion on the song by Hebe? Do you like how the mv was shot?  I think it is genius and I'm really glad that she wrote about this issue!

  22. Ah the very first line had me cringing remembering those awful school pictures we had to take. I never had any terrible experience with them but the whole is just so... awkward (but then again I'm awkward in pretty much every situation that involves a camera of some sort haha!)

  27. I love long blog post. Hehe. Hey! Congrats! You really should be proud of yourself for achieving that medal. And I also didn't know those are lipsticks, I thought they're like lip stain or something. I wonder if they're available here in Singapore.

    Hmmm... would you be interested in following each other on GFC and Bloglovin?
