Flashforward and Flashback

So last week, I finally went online and ordered my prom dress! I was not about to wait till last minute this time since I know something could go wrong and that would just be unfortunate for me!
The shipping for the dress was so quick! I ordered it Tuesday night and the dress was at my mailbox by Thursday afternoon!!

Promgirl review

Promgirl review

I was shocked that it came so fast, but I'm not complaining here! I was just hoping that everything would fit so I was afraid to put it on. I knew that if it didn't fit, I had to make it fit somehow. According to the measurements on the site, the dress would fit me everywhere except my chest. Well, that is exactly how it worked!! The dress fit me like a glove everywhere except for my chest which was anticipated!!
It's not that loose up top so I'm debating whether to get it fixed or to try and increase my chest size somehow haha. I'm looking into those stick on+strapless+backless push up bras from Aerie right now. The reviews for them have all been positive so I might end up getting it.

Sexy Long One Shoulder Dress by Atria
I couldn't resist!!
Sexy Long One Shoulder Dress by Atria

I originally wasn't going to post a picture of my dress until after prom, but I honestly cannot resist! The dress is just so perfect, so I'm just going to show a few sneak peeks. As you can tell, the dress is red! I've actually always wanted to wear a red dress, but each time I've had the chance to, I've shyed away and worn a more neutral/not as bold color. Red is such a daring color and in my opinion, wearing a red dress like this takes a lot of confidence to pull off! It's also got a mermaid shape to the bottom which I personally find flattering on me =)

The front of the dress is a bit plain, but I like it! The top is a one shoulder type thing and when I first got the dress.. it took me ~10 minutes and an extra hand to figure out how to put it on properly. I just could not figure out which hole to put my head into and which arm went into which slot!
The back of the dress is my favorite part!! It's an open back and the jewels that you see actually wrap around my back! I honestly brought the dress because of the back!!

Contact Lenses Supplies

I got my contact lenses last Wednesday! (Though it feels like it's been way longer..) Well now that it's been a week, I have to say that I am getting used to them pretty quickly!! It was really bad the first few times I tried to get them into my eye. I was at the doctor's for an hour and a half just practicing. haha I think taking them out is sooo much easier than putting them in!
The next day, I really wanted to wear my contacts to school instead of glasses so I woke up half an hour early to try to put them in and I failed!! I could not wear them to school that day and it was soo sad haha. So I came home and I tried again to get them in and after about 2 hours of standing in front of the mirror, I freaked out and gave up.
 I decided to give it one more shot at night after I had given myself some time to calm down and after about 30 minutes, I got the contacts in!! I felt so accomplished.. too bad I had to take them right out since I needed to shower after lol. The good news now is that I can easily get my contacts in my eye in under 10 minutes and I can take them out in less than 5!!! I'm so proud!!

Letter To myself Elementary School

So I just got this little letter in the mail this week. At first when I saw the envelope, I was confused as to what it was. I saw the name of the sender and saw that it came from a teacher that I used to have.. I got curious as to what could have been in the envelope so I immediately opened it. As I took out the contents of the letter, my heart skipped a beat as I realized that inside was the letter that I had written to myself when I was in 3rd grade!!
When I was in elementary school, a few of our teachers took on this project where they had us write a letter to our "grown up selfs." Then the teacher would keep the letters and when we graduate high school, they would mail it to us... well here is my letter along with a letter from my teacher! Looking back on this letter, I cannot believe that it has been ~9 years already! It doesn't feel like it's been that long at all and it's just wild how fast it all feels. I still remember myself as a little 3rd grader and now I'm about to head off to college!!  ahhh it's such an odd feeling that I have right now!

Hamster Sleeping Cute

I'm going to end my post today with a super adorable picture I took of my hamster, Cream. It's actually the morning here, but Cream always sleeps in the morning and by 8 at night, she is up and running on her wheel! She has grown so much since I've gotten her last year! You can't really tell from this photo, but when her body is stretched, she is longer than my hand. It's crazy how fast they grow =)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ahh my orientation is literally tomorrow! It's overnight and that is just crazy! I'm getting my first taste of college life hehe! So I'm actually pretty excited and nervous for staying overnight... I'm obviouisly excited to meet new people and to get my classes, but I'm so nervous since I don't know what it will be like!
Plus the whole showering at school thing is really making me anxious haha... I'm trying to figure out how I can get around this issue because I need to get over it if I want to live a normal life in college lol!

Have you ever written a letter to your future self before?
Do you guys still remember your childhood times?
hmm... I wonder if any of you have any makeup or hair ideas that match my prom dress? The theme for my prom is "The Great Gatsby" and I was thinking of going for maybe a half up/half down hairdo and possibly gold eyeshadow or smokey eye?

    1. hehe okay! I've been liking them a lot now!
      It takes ~10 minutes to put in and ~5 minutes to take out plus some time for washing them!
      I love them more than glasses, but it's important to keep your hands and lenses clean!!

  8. Can't wait to see what you look like in your dress (hopefully, you'll show us:) ). Minimal eye makeup and bold red lip would look beautiful with that dress. Good luck on your orientation!

Can't wait to see you in your dress too~ yee, I also got my contacts ready for the night~~ I seriously can't believe it took you THAT LONG just to get your contacts in!! D: the most it takes for me is probably 6 minutes, haha! It's great that you're doing well with them now, though. Seriously, that letter thing is just a great idea!! Ugh, I kind of wish I did that before in the past, haha; it'd definitely be fun to see my past self! :) *sigh* I miss my childhood times with my siblings~~ anyway, I'm excited yet also nervous for college too!! Have fun during your orientation! :D Good luck!!xx

    1. ohh yay!! The prom dress is so nice! I love it a lot!!
      ohh I can't wait to see you in your prom dress! Your graduation soo early! Lucky you!!

      lol, I 'm very uncoordinated and I got frustrated which probably made things worse. The contacts just kept sticking to my hand and they kept falling onto the ground so then I had to search for it,... I actually thought it feel in the toilet and I was like =0 I wish i can get my time down to 6 minutes!
      I really do miss my past! Adults aren't joking when they tell you to enjoy being a kid lol but I'm thinking maybe our blogs will sort of be like the letters that we can look back on!! =)

  13. Wow that is some fast delivery for a prom dress! I also had a red prom dress for senior prom, and the beads on the back promise to make it one of the most unique dresses I've seen. I also had to write a letter to myself in elementary school, but unlike your teacher, mine forgot to give us ours :(
