Vacation Vocation

On a vacation you have a relax. I was actually lucky enough to be flown to Hawaii for the holidays with my family. Sadly I had some other duties to do there such as study for my california permit, write essays, and read Wuthering Heights for Honors English. Thankfully I managed to to do everything on my list that leads to total relaxation and then I able to do my tasks more efficiently. Even though I really didn't want to do them at all. Homework on vacation makes me gag! Ok so here are the must-do's for a holiday in the sun! I think the thing I mostly needed was sleep!

This is probably what my hair looked like in the sun before I got it highlighted and the flower behind her ear is so adorable. I think Hawaii is probably the best smelling place on earth because of all the flowers and trees and it rains all the time!

Ok the first thing you need to do when you enter a tropical beach land on a vacation is to rush to the water to dip your toes in to the ocean. Not only is it refreshing but the sand and the rocks will gently massage your feet! Plus wearing those floaty dresses is a great item to pack for the trip because it will keep you from getting too hot in the day and it will flatter any figure especially if you're pigging out on the hotel's speciality fruit smoothies (cough cough me).

Even if its overcast outside don't hole up in the hotel room, go to the beach when it may be less crowded plus its especially good for pale skinned people like me because then we wont get as burned as we would on the beach normally! But still remember to put on sunscreen because you could still get burned. Hmmmmmmm isn't that annoying?

Playing games in the waves is ALWAYS my favorite thing to do.

Spa treatments are probably my favorite thing to do! Massages are probably the best thing to do to get relaxed and facials will rejuvenate your skin. And when you go back to the workplace or school everybody will be staring at your glowing, healthy face. Since I went to Maui and luckily the hotel that was next to mine had a Kate Somerville Spa!!! I definitely had the best facial of my life at that spa!

Ok so here are a few helpful tips to get your body and mind in the relaxation mode! Hope you had fun on your holiday! xoxo

Airport Aversion

So I have a little bone to pick with the airports. Their security is so annoying! Ok, I know its for everybody's safety but seriously when I am going through the scanner and i have to take off my shoes, my jacket, my belt, and my jewelry, put my cellphone and laptop in separate containers, and make sure that all of my toiletries are less than 3.2 fluid ounces! Its exhausting I have to unpack and repack everything and pile everything on top of me so I don't make the other 100 people in line after me wait I'm seriously sick of it! And god forbid if you have fluids over 3.2 fluid ounces or you forgot to take out your tweezers from your toiletry bag! Now you have to go through another whole search! I am not even going to get in to that! Our security will probably evolve to be so critical that we'll have to do strip searches if we have an ounce of metal on us! Sorry I just needed to rant about that for a while but seriously I don't think a 15 (almost 16!) girl is going to throw her life away and many others by carrying a bomb in to an airport! And what is even more ridiculous is that they even have the audacity to check my 9 year old sister because she accidentally packed scissors! THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE AHHHHH! ok so here is an editorial that really glams up the whole airport ordeal. What is your worst airport experience?

Strawberry Shortcake

Update: So some people may call me a strawberry blonde and I started to hate the blonde part. I like being red! So yesterday I went to Jeffrey-Kara salon and made my hair a bit more strawberry! I used this model in this Dazed and Confused editorial as an example for the hair color that I want. What do you think?
