Peppy And Preppy

Whoo.. Hello February!!  It's hard to believe that it's already here because it feels like I was just celebrating New Year's only a few days ago! They don't lie when they tell you that senior year flies by because it really does. I'm feeling nervous about it, but at the same time quite excited to start a new adventure in my life. I think once I pick my college and settle in, things will feel right. Today, I'm feeling pretty peppy (hehe like what I did there?) about things. Even though college and scholarship applications are stressful, I'm excited to visit my colleges and see where my life could be headed!
Today, I'm also super peppy because of how comfortable it feels outside, temperature wise! We've been freezing for the past week and just this weekend, it's been warming up! It actually feels like autumn outside and I'm loving it!! In celebration of the warmer weather, I am wearing a comfortable cardigan that I got a while ago.

I got this cardigan from Dailylook and I have really grown to love it! It's quite thick and I love the way it looks on me. Plus, the navy color of it looks very nice on me hehe. Even though pink is my favorite color, I find that blues colored clothing looks the best on me for some reason. I actually own more blue pieces than any other color.. even my prom dress last year was blue!

Sally Hansen's triple Shine Flame On

It felt absolutely amazing outside today. The crisp air made me think of autumn which then made me think of apples and cross country! I'm really going to miss racing with my team next year when I am college. It hasn't quite set in on me yet that I am done with running (at least as a team/competitively). I won't be racing in college (since I am too slow hehe), but I'm thinking about doing a intramural type sport to keep me active!

With this cardigan, I chose to pair it with a pair of gray colored jeans and some warm boots! Even though it is warmer today, it is breezy and boots are the way to go!!  For jewelry, I have on a cute heart bracelet from forever 21. It's been forever since I've painted my nails! Here, I am wearing the color flame on from Sally Hansen's triple Shine line.

Wireless Remote Control Review
Testing out the "Wireless Remote Control" from Canon here!
 Cardigan From Dailylook

I promised to do a mini review of the wireless remote control I got before I left for vacation! A few people were curious as to if the remote control worked. My answer is... yes it does!! The remote control uses one of those round/flat batteries to operate.  To get it to work with you camera, you will have to go into the shooting settings of your camera and choose an option like "wireless" or remote," for the remote to actually work. Trust me, when I first tested it out, I stood there for a good 15 minutes wondering why the remote wouldn't work! (battery, angle, lighting... technology is not my strong point here hehe)  The control has one button on the front a switch in the back. The switch in the back lets you turn on "autofocus" which I always choose to do. You basically press the button lightly and wait for it to focus. After that, you click and the picture is taken in 2 seconds! It works like magic!! 

The remote control was relatively cheap from what I remember (I think it was only $8 for me because I had recently brought a camera from amazon) and works with my camera. The remote itself is a lot smaller than I imagined. It's a tiny bit bigger than the size of my thumb! I like it that way though because it makes it easier to hide when the picture is going to be taken. I can just quickly slip the remote into my back pocket right before the camera snaps! =)  I do recommend this remote for anyone who wants to take pictures with their camera without having to be behind the camera! =)

  8. Hiya! Why did I turned down a full ride? Because NYU was (and I still think is) the more prestigious school between the two. It's just more well known which is suppose to help open more doors down the road. That's why I went with NYU. =)

    1. Hi Stephen!! Thanks so much for your response!
      I def. do agree with what you said here and that is what is making my decision so hard! I realize that NYU has much more to offer in comparison to Pace but at the same time, I just need to figure out whether those opportunities are going to be worth the cost for me personally! I'm glad though that you were successful!! =)

  9. First of all, you're just adorable!!

    I really love your outfit, but then again, I'm a huge fan of a good cardigan. You really can't go wrong with one!

    Interesting review on the remote for your camera. I use a tripod and the timer to take my blog photos, so this is probably something I should look into.

    I hope you'll check out my blog too!

  35. Tell me about it! Only a few more months till graduation (: That cardi is so cute--it looks super cozy and stylish. You're right--blue suits you so well and I remember your chic prom dress from last year! Your silver bracelet is also so pretty and the pink nail polish really pops against the rest of the look.

    And hey, I run XC too! I have the same plans for college--I know I don't want to compete on varsity, but running is such a huge part of my life that I know I want to join club and keep competing.

    These photos look great with the remote! I had the some problems with mine too, but I later figured out that my camera doesn't have an infrared sensor and I had to get a special two-piece one. Remotes will be super helpful for us next year at collegeso it's good we're practicing!

    That last shot is stunning--love the different shades of your hair. The filter really brings out the vibrant colors!

    Have a great week!

    1. I love reading your comments Lily!! I can totally relate to everything you say here because we seem to be so similar! Thank you!! I think blue is my color hehe.. (even if I want pink to be mine!)

      ohh that is so cool!! Another similarity!! Running is a must for me in college, but like you, competing is not on my mind! I want to run for fun and stay in shape! ohhh that sounds like a problem, but I'm glad that you figured it out! and yes, they will be super helpful for us next year! (unless we get lucky and our roommates are into photographer or are super nice hehe!)

      Again, thank you so much for your comment!!!!
