New Years Resolutions.

I know I'm a bit late, but I decided to make a list of resolutions for this year. I originally planned not to make any, because no one ever keeps them (including me). But that's negative, and that kind of thinking isn't going to get me anywhere. So here is my list.

1. Lose weight. There's nothing wrong with my weight now, I look ok, but who wants to look "ok?". I don't work out and I barely watch what I eat so I know that I can lose weight if I try. I have a large frame size and I'm 5'5"/165cm, so I'm actually already at my "ideal weight" but I decided that my ultimate goal weight is 135lbs/61kg. I haven't decided on a time frame yet, but currently I weigh around 155lbs/70kg so I have around 20lbs/9kg to lose. I've already cut down my caloric intake to between 1000 and 1500 a day and started a one hour morning workout, so I hope to start seeing some results soon!

2. Be neater. I am an extremely messy, sloppy, person. My room is disgusting and I have a very hard time getting organized. So I'm going to clean my room once a week and tidy every morning before I got to school.
3. Spend more time on my appearance. I think I mentioned this in my previous post, I leave the house with something just thrown on way too often. When I step out of my front door I better look great or be wearing a chef's coat.

4. Learn how to cook more meals. Since I stopped eating meat over three years ago by diet has felt very limited. I eat the same things over and over again unless I go out, and that just seems silly since I consider myself to be very good at cooking. I want to expand my repertoire.

5. Be positive. I'm not as negative as I used to be, but I still get really down on myself sometimes. I think that needs to stop since it's not productive. Plus, if I do the best I can when I have something to do, there will be no reason for me to feel bad about it.

I've already started and I'm determined to work on these things as I think they will help me be a more well rounded person. I feel a little one dimensional right now, which is really not ok with me.

Date Night Pictures!

Hello! This is mostly an excuse to post pictures, so bear with me!
About a week ago my boyfriend and I went out for date night, and since we hadn't been out in awhile and he picked the movie he treated me to sushi. The mall we like has two sushi places; a cute little booth with set meals called Sushi Itto Go, and a conveyor belt style one called Blue C Sushi. We'd tried Sushi Itto Go already, and I hadn't been to the other kind of place in awhile so we went to Blue C Sushi, it was really nice!

We ordered a couple of things fresh since it was later in the night. So this is Zach's seared tuna, it looked so good.
My tofu rolls. The tofu was cooked just right!

I think I'm starting to get it.

Hello there!
I haven't really been working much on my makeup skills, like at all. Lately I've been stressing over my wardrobe, my hair, and my lack of outings to go to. They're excuses, really. I have great friends who will hang out as long as they have the time, I just revamped my wardrobe, and I have a hair piece coming my way in about two weeks. There's absolutely no reason for me not to work on my makeup, it's important, it's fun, and I'm not that bad at it.

I've been studying a lot of different tutorials, scans, and promos, and I think I've made some vast improvement from when I started. I hadn't done much more than slapping on lashes recently, but I got really bored today and did my makeup for sheer practice purposes. Literally, once I was satisfied with it, I went back downstairs to wash it off. But it was really satisfying and I'm starting to actually see the gal influence in my makeup.
Anyway, on to the pictures. We'll start with my first attempt which was in the summer.
Not bad, right? Not very gyaru, though.
