It May Be Normal, Darling; But I'd Rather Be Natural

It's the day after graduation, and I'm so glad everything to do with school is over! Now I can just relax and enjoy the summer. But I'm sure by September I'll be wishing I had one more year left.
Last night I went to a  little grad party with my friends, and we had such a good time. We ate cake and just sat around a fire and talked. Simple, but super fun! Today I'm going to Peggy's Cove, Mahone Bay, and to the city with my family!
These photos are from Sunday, when I was just running around doing some errands with my father!

Do Not Go Where The Path May Lead

Today is the day! In 5 hours, I'll be walking into my graduation ceremony! I'm kind of excited, but I know I'm going to start crying soon. I don't want high school to be over! Which is completely weird, because my whole high school career, all I've wanted was for it to end! And I'm very sure I'm overusing the exclamation point in this post!
This is what I will look like underneath my gigantic red graduation gown. I hope I don't trip going up or down the stairs getting on the stage!


Tonight I'm going to my best friends house for a graduation bonfire, which is also a suprise party for one of our other friends! It'll be a night full of good times, and s'mores!

Be Yourself; Everyone Else Is Already Taken

Last night was my prom night! It was so much fun, but I'm feeling the after effects today. I'm so tired! But that has mostly to do with Safe Grad that was after the prom at my school. It's an all nighter that is planned to give kids a safe environment to party and keep them from drinking and driving. It was so much fun, but around 2 am, all I wanted to do was fall asleep! But they did have fun activities, like laser tag, various
bounce kingdoms, a hypnotist, a hip hop band, and a cartoonist.
Anyway, this is what I wore yesturday before prom. But first, two photos from prom day!

 Bright purple lipstick! ♥

My hair for prom! I'll be posting more photos on Friday!

In these photos, my tights look blue, but they're actually bright purple!

Let Me Be, Was All I Wanted

Today I'm going to the airport to pick up my Baba and godmother. They're coming here from Manitoba to come to my graduation. I haven't seen them in a year, so it'll be nice to see them again! And tomorrow is finally  prom and safe grad, and I'm so excited! I hope it's amazing!

Individuality is Freedom Lived

Yesterday I went shopping in New Minas and this is what I wore. We went for a few last minute prom things, like a hair donut! I got one, and I am so in love with it. Before I couldn't make a pretty bun to save my life, but now it's so easy! I can see myself sporting high top knots all summer. What are your favourite hairstyles for summer?

Pick The Day. Enjoy It - To The Hilt

Today I went to the hair salon to try out a hairstyle for prom! The style includes an upsidedown french braid into a messy bun. I typically don't like to look like other people, and I know a lot of the girls at my school are going to go with typical prom hairstyles. Which are very pretty, but simply not me! I like to stand out, just a little ;)
I kept the bun in, but it's not exactly right. It looks good from thr front, but from the side and the back it looks weird. I wanted it to look like a bun that hair donuts are used in, but I don't have one. So tomorrow I'm going to Sally's Beauty Supply in New Minus to get one, so my hair will hopefully be perfect!

Style is Knowing Who You Are...

Thank you to everyone who wished me luck on my exam! I think I did fairly well, but I'm not too sure. Math isn't my best subject. But now I am all finished with the work of high school, all that is left is prom and graduation! I'm sooo excited!

"Style" Is An Expression of Idividualism...

I swear I didn't mean to wear this jacket again, but I just couldn't help it. I love it so so much, I think it will be on my back all summer. I just love the worn in feel!
This is what I wore to my English exam today. I feel I did fairly well, but I won't know exactly how well (or poor..) until I graduate on the 28th. I only have one exam left now, and that's Math tomorrow morning. I've never been good at math, but I feel extra prepared this year. Here's hoping I do well on that one too, and I hope you all do well on your exams if you have any!

 My black combat boots are finally back! While I was on my trip to New York, we stopped at Six Flags on the way home, and by the end of the day, the soles were half falling off. It took my a while to take them to a cobbler, and I have them back a last. Prepare to see these babies a lot in future posts.
