2. Which song represents your life right now?
Oooh, I really like this question...Let me think..I'd say Fix You by Coldplay, but not because it's sad or anything, just because of when he says "when you feel so tired, but you can't sleep..stuck in reverse" because lately, I just CAN'T fall asleep! Haha

3. Which country would you like to visit?
Umm...Ireland! Well, The Republic Of Ireland I guess, because I would reeeeally like to see Dublin.

Kendall Jenner's! Omg, the styyyyle!!! She's always wearing outfits I wish I could have to myself..I've never disliked anything she ever wore! Plus she's tall, and I'm tall, so I figure I would fit in most of her clothes! Hahaha!

6. What is something you are proud of about yourself?
I'm proud of myself for writing this blog! I finally found something I actually like doing: writing! I always like writing in school and everything, but ever since I started blogging, it's really become a passion!

CollegeFashion.net! I LOVE that blog!!! It's actually my home page when I open google chrome! Haha. I also check twitter everyday, and I'm kind of obsessed with checking my blogger too! Facebook, not so much, I kind of hate facebook and only check it on my phone or IPod when I have notifications..And last but not least..this is gonna sound so nerdy, but dictionary.com! Hahahaha! I always have words to look up for either spelling or pronunciation (since I'm French and sometimes I read new words and don't know how to pronounce them! haha!)

The New And Improved Myrberry! :)

Hello everyone!! Welcome to the new look! :)

Alright, so as you can probably tell from the image above, I also have new goals for this blog!

F I R S T L Y ,
I really want to start getting more creative with my posts! I feel like my latest post (Last Minute Halloween Costume) was waay more creative than any of my other posts, and I want to start making more fashion posts that allow me to show the world my style :)

S E C O N D L Y ,
I'd like to get to 100 followers by the end of 2012. Which gives me..let's calculate this.....65 days! (I used an online countdown..heh.) I know that it's kind of weird to admit this in a post and kind of makes me sound demanding, but I'm only writing this down to motivate myself! I want to make better posts to get an even better response (which is already sooo amazing!! I love everyone!!!! thanks x 1000000000). I just always want to set the bar higher!

T H I R D L Y ,
If I do get to 100 followers by the end of this year, I want to have a giveaway!!! I've been meaning to announce this when I had like..15 followers, but now that I have a bit more than half of my goal, I feel like it's more of a right time to tell you guys this. I don't have any prizes bought or anything yet and haven't decided the rules and everything like that, but don't worry, when I get to 100 followers, you'll know when the giveaway will take place! ^^ haha!

A N D   L A S T L Y   ,
I need to have more confidence in myself! I know this doesn't have much to do with my blog, but it's something that's really important to me! Lately, I've been feeling so low about myself, and I always set my goals on a lower level..and I'm a dreamer guys! It's really not like me..sooo, I'm going to start a challenge! (PS. REALLY TACKY CONTENT AHEAD!!) I've read about this online and always found this so cheesy/tacky/corny (however you say it..I prefer cheesy cuz I like cheese! haha.) However, I now feel like I need to try this, and I'm challenging you too!! :) :

Write down one thing you like about yourself everyday for a month!
It can be anything! 
Even something you're proud of!
This does not have a goal to be completely self-absorbed and braggy or anything like that! It's just to help your self-esteem grow a little bit more everyday!

I might do a post on this after I've completed the challenge :) We'll have to see! 

But anyways, I feel like I wrote A LOT! So, sorry about that!! haha

Let me know if you like this look better than the old one and if you're going to try out the challenge :)

Thanks to everyone who supports me!! I wish I could give everyone hugs and yell "FREE HUGS!!!" haha (bucket list!!!)

Last Minute Halloween Costumes

Hey guys!

Sooo, this post is going to help you ladies out there who are like me: [pretty much] always last minute...Heh, it's not our faults, right?  So yeah, I still don't have a costume for Halloween 2012 but I do know what i want to be. As Halloween is in exactly a week, I think it's about time I go shopping for my stuff! And I'm actually going tomorrow! 

**Please note that you don't have to buy these exact pieces of clothing. These are just examples of items you could use. I chose pieces that most people already own (with some exceptions) so it would be easier!

Alright, I will stop chit chatting and start riiiight now :)

C O S T U M E   I D E A   N U M B E R   O N E 

So this is actually what I want to be for this year's Halloween! :) I love cats, especially black ones, and I feel like this outfit is really cute! 

The socks are actually not for your feet, but you can make a tail out of them! Just cut and sow a long sock to the desired thickness, and fill it in with toilet paper. Then, you can either tuck the sown end into your pants, or pin it to the back of your pants if you want it to stay longer!

For makeup, I'm going to attempt a black smokey eye and wing out my eyeliner in thick lines. I'll also add some liquid eyeliner to the tip of my nose and swipe 3 small lines across my cheeks for whiskers!

C O S T U M E   I D E A   N U M B E R   T W O 

For hair, I'm thinking two pigtails. But make them messy! 

Make sure you're ready to ruin the dress you're using because you'll have to splatter some fake blood all over it for this look. If you're feeling extra spooky, buy some sort of fake bite and add some dripping fake blood to the side of your neck. 

For makeup, buy and extra white shade of foundation. If you're already very pale and you feel like the lightest shade of foundation would only match your skin, you can use face paint from the drugstore in the Halloween section. Apply dark eyeshadow to your crease and under the eye for a tired/dead look. 

C O S T U M E   I D E A   N U M B E R   T H R E E 

For the sweater, you want to make sure you can ruin this. You can buy one at a thrift store or jusst a really cheap one. Then, you want to draw a jack-o-lantern face as big as possible on the front part of the shirt. It's that easy!

The wig is totally optional, but I this in store the other day and thought it was the cutest thing eveeer!!! Instead, you could wear just a green headband or pull your hair into a bun or ponytail and wrap green ribbon around it. 

Any of the nail polishes from this new orly spellbound set would work really well with this, or any, costume! They're soo cute!! I can't decide which is my favorite!! 

You can wear any brown or other neutral colored boots you may already have. If you don't have any, you can just put on some black or brown flats.

Alrighty, that's all I came up with. If you would like to see more, you can say so in the comments and let me know what costume you would like to see next :)

I know these are not original costumes, but they're last minute ones, so they can't be too complicated. 

Also, am I the only one going trick-or-treating this year still? Haha, I'm now 16 years old, but you know what they say: YOLO!! Hahaha!  Let me know what your plans for Halloween are and what you're dressing up as :)

Hope this helped!!

DIY: Lip Scrub

Happy Sunday everyone! 
Or Monday if you only see this tomorrow, or happy whatever day it is when you read this! Hhaha.

For this post, I decided to do something more creative and something that would be fun. Sooo, I decided to share with you guys my own recipe of lip scrub :)

Last year, I really wanted to buy lip scrub off of the Lush website since I don't have a Lush store near me. But the shipping was pretty expensive so I didn't feel like spending $20 for lip scrub. Instead, I read what the ingredients were: Sugar, vanilla extract, flavor, and some things I knew I wouldn't find anywhere where I live. So I just improvised and it worked! I promise it is really simple and you probably have all the ingredients already in your bathroom and kitchen!

I first made this last Spring season, so it was getting gross and the vanilla had completely separated itself from the other ingredients. Since it was so gross, I decided to make a new one and show you guys how to make it.

So let's get started! 

W H A T  Y O U ' L L  N E E D  :

-Vanilla Extract (1/2 -1 tsp.)
-Vaseline (2 tsp.)
-Brown Sugar (2-3 tbsp.)
-An Empty Pot or Container (Cleaned)
-A Bowl (to mix everything in)
-A Fork
-A Tablespoon
-A Teaspoon

-Flavor (I used 2 tsp. of french vanilla capuccino powder)

 This is edible!! The Vaseline will stay on your lips so you'll only lick the sugar off :)

S T E P  O N E

Put 2 teaspoons of Vaseline in a bowl.

S T E P  T W O

Start by adding half a teaspoon of vanilla extract to the Vaseline. If you need more later on when you've mixed everything, you can add another half teaspoon of it, but just in case, start with only one half of a teaspoon.

S T E P  T H R E E

Adding only one tablespoon of brown sugar at the time, mix everything well with a fork. Don't add the three tablespoons at once, it may be harder to mix together. 

After adding one tablespoon of brown sugar to half a teaspoon of vanilla extract and one teaspoon of Vaseline. (I had only put 1 tsp. of Vaseline at first because I didn't know for sure how much to put in but you definitely need 2!)

S T E P  F O U R 
( o p t i o n a l )

Add 2 teaspoons of flavor. Again, I am using some french vanilla cappuccino powder but you could skip this step. The first time I tried this lip scrub, I only put vanilla extract and sugar and it tasted fine, but if you want yours to be a bit more tasty, I really recommend using some sort of flavored coffee/cappuccino powder. You could also try a small amount of crystal light powder if you don't like the taste of coffee. I really like it more with coffee powder!!

S T E P  F I V E

Mix everything together and make sure the vanilla extract is 100% blended into the mixture! Then, with the teaspoon or with the fork, transfer the mixture from the mixing bowl to the empty container or pot. (I used an empty pot of primer I used up.)

In case you don't know how to apply this, here are some

D I R E C T I O N S :

With your finger, apply a small amount of lip scrub to the lips. Make sure you scrub it evenly on the lips with your finger. Once the mixture is evenly distributed to both lips, rub your lips together to remove all the dead skin of yours dried/chapped lips. (You can even use this if you don't have chapped lips just to make lipstick go on more evenly and smoothly.) Then, lick it off. Like I said in the beginning , the Vaseline will stay on your lips so you don't have to worry about eating Vaseline! That would be kind of gross wouldn't it? Hahah! I promise you will only taste the sugar, vanilla extract and coffee (if applicable).

Alrighty, that's all for today!

I hope you enjoyed this very simple lip scrub recipe! I've been using this for 6 months now and it makes such a difference to your lips! It's amazing! Plus, you probably already had all these ingredients so for most people, it's completely free! So if for any reason you don't like it, at least you didn't spend money on it!

As always, thanks to everyone who reads/comment/follow!! I love every single one of you sososo much!!

My New Mascara Routine

Hello pretties :)

Today I thought I would go ahead and show you my new mascara routine. I've only been doing this for the past 2 weeks, but I'm already in love with it and I would very much recommend it to every girl in the world!!

First, let me tell you what mascaras I use for this look:

Maybelline New York The Falsies (Waterproof) and The Colossal Cat Eye Mascaras

First off, I want to talk a bit about these 2 mascaras. 

T H E  F A L S I E S
I really like this mascara and have loved it for about 3 years now (I don't use the same one I did 3 years ago, don't worry! Haha). But I find that I only like it when it's a bit dried out. Not too dried, but just enough so that it's not too liquid-y and tacky on the lashes. I feel like when I first buy it, I always get disappointed with how it looks and feels on my lashes. What I do is give it 1-2 months and then try it again, and every time I re-fall in love with it all over again! Haha. If anyone in the world hasn't tried this mascara yet..well I don't know how you ever survived! Haha, go out there and get it!!

T H E  C O L O S S A L  C A T  E Y E S
I only got this 2 weeks ago, but it's already my new favorite mascara of all times!! I'm in loooove!!! I might do a review on this when I have the time to write a long post (right now I don't..I have t oleave in 15 minutes! hahaha) so keep your eyes peeled for that :)


Anyways, now that I've babbled and lost a lot of time, I'll get right into the (very few) steps :)

S T E P  O N E
Apply one coat of The Falsies to your lashes 

S T E P  T W O
Apply 1-2 coats of The Colossal Cat Eyes to your lashes without letting The Falsies dry.
(I only realised after uploading the pictures that I had a huge clump on the top of that super long lash! Haha, sorry about that, I was in a hurry!)

S T E P  T H R E E
Apply a very thin coat of The Falsies to the bottom lashes. I hate it when people wear a ton of mascara on the bottom lashes, so I keep it minimal and natural looking :)

Your lashes may or may not look like this after these three easy steps :) 
(grr, so blurry!!)

Alrighty, I hope you guys enjoyed this very quick blog post!! Please note that if I made any spelling errors or anything, it's because I am in a complete rush! In fact, I don't really have time to explain why! 

So thank so much for following/reading/commenting and I love each and every one of you so so so much!! Thanks for everything!!
