For as long as I can remember, I have been looking forward to getting ready for prom. Honestly, going dress shopping and figuring out how I was going to style my hair etc. excited me more than the dance itself.
My dress is a lot different than I imagined it would be. Ever since freshman year, I have dreamt of getting an A-line golden or red dress with delicate beading on the top. However, my dress is very much the opposite of that.

Like I said in my previous post, I have had a very hectic week. However, it has been hectic in a good way! Work is beginning to start up again, so juggling that and school for a month will be difficult but I am sure I can get through it like I have for the past two years. 

What I've Been Up To

Wednesday, May 25, 2016
Hey guys!
I am so sorry for being so inconsistent with my posts! This week was (and will continue to be) very hectic. The school year is wrapping up - so teachers believe that it is the perfect time to throw a bunch of work onto the students. Not as if that is enough, prom is this upcoming Friday!

The Hamptons

Monday, May 16, 2016
This Saturday, my family and I decided that we were going to make a last minute trip to the Hamptons Sunday morning. We headed out there with the mindset that we were going to be in East Hampton and eat, but like usual, we ended up in Sag Harbor quickly after.

Graduation Gift Guide

Saturday, May 14, 2016
It is that time of year where you find yourself at a different graduation party every weekend. A lot have already happened, mostly college graduations, but many more are still to come up until the end of June (including mine).
Finding the right gifts to give those who are about to embark on a new phase of their lives is always a little bit difficult, whether it be a college or high school graduate.
I think, either way, both of those situations call for new room decorations, which would be used in a dorm or new apartment. I think it is pretty essential to get the graduate something that they can use, because let's face it, a dorm and a first apartment are not typically large enough to store things that are never going to be used. So, something that will come in handy (and hopefully also cute) is always the best way to go when gift shopping.
There are a lot more things that graduates need, but this is a very basic (and fun) group of gifts! I think that if I were given any of these for graduation, I would use each as much as I could!

This week was definitely out of the ordinary. My math teacher left the school abruptly, I have not been getting as much homework as I usually do, and I have been surprisingly relaxed.
Considering prom is coming up in a few weeks, I expected to be a little more all over the place with my outfit, what and where I am doing my hair, and where I will be getting my makeup done. Thankfully, I have most of that figured out. The one thing I am missing is where I am getting my hair done. I feel like there are so many places to choose from, but I am really bad with trusting new salons (my one does not specialize in up-do's), so putting my trust in something new for prom is a little daunting.

The Perfect Sneaker

Friday, May 6, 2016
So lately I have been on the hunt for the perfect sneaker. I bought two pairs of sneakers from the New Balance x J. Crew collection, but they are more for style than doing physical activity in.

Hetch Hetchy Hiking

Monday, May 2, 2016
When we got to our resort on Saturday, aside from certain hikes in Yosemite, the concierge recommended that we hike Hetch Hetchy. Neither of us ever heard of it, and we were really interested to go see it.

I finally did the number one thing on my bucket list - I went and hiked in Yosemite!
It was the most amazing hike I have ever been on. Although I have not done much hiking (yet), it was my favorite by far. The hike was really hard and definitely made me work up a sweat, but the result at the top of the waterfall was breathtaking. There was a lot of uphill walking (which I expected), and then over two hundred unevenly paved steps that were soaked from the waterfall. It was not an easy one, but like I said, it was so magnificent and was 'worth the hike'.
