Just got back from watching probably one of the best movies I've watched all year. And if you haven't heard of Big Hero 6, then I advise you to not even bother to Google it or even look up the trailer because you might as well just get in your car now and drive to the closest movie theater and watch this movie NOW. My friend, who watched the movie before I did, warned me already that the movie was going to get pretty sad, but I did not expect to cry as much as I did. And it probably doesn't help that I am on an emotional roller coaster due to being on my period (sorry tmi, but it's nature, okay?!) I even started tearing up from all the sad and touching movie previews, so I guess you can say I'm just on something else right now haha jk.

Anyway, the movie was both enjoyable for my mom and my little brother so the movie is towards all general audiences. But of course, parents and older viewers would probably say the movie was somewhat predictable in a sense, but even so I enjoyed the movie from beginning to the very end. The movie was entertaining, grasps your whole attention, makes you cry, you get emotionally attached to the characters and overall gives you a "feel-good" feeling. I definitely recommend it to every single person reading this post and everyone who isn't reading this post. I would most definitely watch this movie again and I plan on buying it on DVD. 



I wish I was going to Disney Land or Disney World sometime soon so I could see all the Big Hero 6 themed things going on. I would totally spend my money on a bunch of Baymax merchandise. Baymax is hands-down my favorite character in the movie. He is just so lovable and funny all throughout the movie. Props to the creators and everyone who put in work towards this film because it was such a good movie and I just can't get over how satisfied I am with watching it. When I first saw the trailer for the movie, I had no interest in it, but now I regret EVER thinking that because the movie definitely went beyond my expectations. 

So go out and don't hesitate any longer to watch this movie because I recommend it to every single person out there!!

Never owned or bought anything from Brandy Melville before, due to the fact that there is no Brandy Melville within 100 miles from me but here are a few pieces I quickly fell in love with when browsing their website. I used to think that Brandy Melville was kind of overpriced but looking over the price, I feel they're pretty fair. 
I have been to a Brandy Melville store once when I was in the OC in California. I didn't really find anything that I liked at the time, not to mention I was basically broke back in the day. 

I really like the clothing from Brandy Melville because it's super simplistic but still cute. My style is very basic and minimal with some slight edge and I feel Brandy Melville's clothing is exactly that. I can't wait to save up and finally fill my closet with their clothing, I think it's about time I break away from a closet solely full of Forever 21 items (no offense to F21, I still love their stuff). 

The pieces that I absolutely would love to get would be the Boyfriend Denim Jacket, Ilianna Bralette, New York Tie-Dye Shirt, and the "But First Coffee" T-shirt. 
I have been searching for the perfect denim jacket and I think I've found it. Usually when I shop for denim jackets, they're either too boxy or too big, but hopefully that won't be the case with this jacket (if I ever get it, that is). And the Ilianna Bralette is what I've been looking for forever! I just like the criss-cross detail in the front and it would add a lot a cuteness to low-cut tanks. 
And I don't know what it is about tie-dye but it's really hard to find a pastel tie-dye shirt that doesn't look tacky and of course I gotta represent New York for the boo~<3
And although the shirt is very simplistic, "Ok, But first coffee" is just something I need to have via on a t-shirt saying. 

With love,

So for those who don't already know, my boyfriend and I are currently in a long distance relationship. (PS Hi babe, cause  know you're probably going to read this sooner or later) Anyway, at first when my boyfriend, Anthony, and I started dating he was living where I'm living now but about a couple months ago he moved back to his home state, New York. So on the bright side of things, at least we're on the same side of the continent, and therefore with him just being an hour ahead, it isn't all too bad compared to couples living in different countries from one another. Which, by the way huge kudos to those couples out there who are doing long distance from different continents/countries because just having my boyfriend live in a different state is already hard enough, I can't even begin to imagine if he lived in a different country.

So a little history of my boyfriend and I. First, before my boyfriend I started doing long distance, we were dating for about 3 months? And prior to that we knew each other for about. I wanna say, about half a year. We met through work around Thanksgiving time, but the first time we actually talked was on my birthday, which was about a month later. And he says from then he always had this crazy crush on me but for me I didn't actually start liking him until about Valentines Day (how cliche and cheesy I know. lol) And I want to say that we really didn't start hanging out until about late March to early April. And it wasn't until about Mid-June that I was actually the one to, I guess, "make it official" and ask him to be my oh-so-lovable boo thaaaaaang. And it wasn't until about the first week of September that he moved back to New York. So we were physically together, as a couple, for about 3 months and so far we've gone 3 months going long distance.



And of course there were people who were telling me that "long distance never works out" or "long distance isn't worth it." And to be honest, at first I was very skeptical about dating him because I knew beforehand that he was planning on moving back, but regardless of what people were telling me, I said F**k it and thought he was worth a shot and if it doesn't work out, then it doesn't work out. But so far so good. We have been doing long distance for about 3 months now and we're about to celebrate our six months in December. (Woo-hoo!)

So in honor of having been in a so-far-successful long distance relationship I thought I should create a post on my personal experience, thoughts and possible tips for those who are either already in a long distance relationship, who want to try it out or just for those who are kind of curious as to what and how a long distance relationship/dating is like.

Starting off with some tips:

1. Make sure you're picking the "right" person / Know what you're about to get yourself into

I cannot stress this enough. The one reason why most long distance relationships probably don't work out is because you're "with" the wrong person or you're not fully aware of what you're getting yourself into.  Not saying that initially you'll just automatically know that they're the right person or not, but regardless of the distance, the distance is not what should tear you two apart. That is the GIVEN in long distance because you should know that you will not be physically there with the person and be able to do all those things couples do *wink wink* jk. But seriously being apart is what you signed up for when you decided to be in a long distance relationship with someone. so yes there will be times where it is ridiculously difficult being apart from you boyfriend/girlfriend, yes there will be times where you think the distance isn't worth it, and yes there will be times where you just miss them like crazy but that just leads into tip number 2



2. Visit each other as much as you can

Make sure to plan visits as much as possible. The way Anthony and I schedule our visits is based on my school schedule. So whenever I have an upcoming break, we alternate visits. So if you guys haven't read my post about my visit to New York, I visited Anthony first back in October and now he is planning on coming down here to visit me in December. So we see each other about every other month. 



3. FaceTime / Skype as much as possible
Not being able to see your boyfriend/girlfriend face-to-face is super depressing, but thank goodness for video chatting apps like FaceTime and Skype, it makes seeing them a whole lot easier. Yes, it isn't quite the same as seeing them in person, but just seeing their face and being able to talk to them is comforting. So just make sure to take time out of both your busy schedules for each other. 

4. Communication is key
This is something not only for long distance relationships but in all relationships overall. If you don't talk to them, then you're not building up that sense of comfort or intimacy with them. So text, email, call them, write them letters as much as you can. Especially for long distance relationships, your relationship thrives off communication. Because they're not there with you physically you have to base things off of what they tell you and you can't let yourself overthink things.  For instance, Anthony and I never fail to send each other "Good morning" and "Good Night" texts every single morning and every single night that we're apart from each other. And we FaceTime each other at least once a day and at most ten times a week. And if we don't talk to each other one or the other always tends to overthink things like "They're probably hanging out with someone better" or "Maybe they're with some other guy" just a bunch of insecure nonsense that is natural to think and normal for all couples. That is why you always make sure the two of you are communicating and on the same page, just so there's no misunderstandings and that you don't lose touch with each other. LET THEM KNOW WHAT YOU'RE FEELING AND THINKING. Do not play hard to get and expect them to just automatically know what you want and or need. Distance is already making it hard enough so save the two of you and everyone else the trouble and just be open with one another. 

5. Trust the other person and stay committed
Being in long distance is prone to lead to temptations of other possible "mates." Having your boyfriend/girlfriend away from you already sucks as it is and so the idea of settling for someone who is actually physically there with you always seems like the path to go. And at first there's always that thought in the back of your mind that makes you think that the other person is going to find someone better while you two are apart, but that is why you have to learn how to discipline yourself and realize what you want and don't want. And this all ties back into tip number 1, which is to know what you're getting into. If you know you're going to be apart from your bf/gf then you should know ahead of time that these temptations of dating other people will pop up, but it is up to you to decide whether or not to stay committed to this person or not and whether or not they're worth being in a relationship with. Which also means that you also have to trust the other person that they're not cheating on you and that you also have to show that you yourself can be trusted. You're showing them that regardless of other people trying to ask you out, you will continuously stay committed to them and the relationship. I know when Anthony and I first started doing long distance, he was worried because of the fact that I'm still in school that there are going to be guys coming at me left and right, however I have showed him that I am not paying those other guys any attention because he can trust me and that I am and will continue to be committed to him. And I already put my whole-full-hearted trust in him because I know what kind of person he is and he knows, NOW, that I would never do him wrong, which goes into my tip number 6.

6. Get to know them on a more intimate and personal level
Sometimes I feel long distance relationships are very beneficial for some couples. You're not really forced into, but you're more prone to getting to know the other person on a deeper level. You're growing more attached to the way they think, who they really are rather than just physically. Not saying that getting to know them physically isn't a bad thing either, but sometimes long distance relationships leads you to get to know one another in a different perspective than you would have when you guys are together face-to-face. 

7. Make plans for the future
And of course there is no "time limit" for long distance dating but eventually there will be a time where someone will eventually move in with someone or the two of you will move somewhere together. I don't think it should be normal to be adjusted or okay with being away from your significant other for a long period of time. I mean there are couples out there that have probably been doing long distance for years, but there will always come a time where you have to take the next big step. OR there will be a time where the couple breaks up. Overall, there are usually only two possible, logical outcomes, move in together and see where the relationship goes or eventually break up and move on with life. The key is to plan and plan and plan ahead. If you two aren't on the same page and the other person just assumes that eventually the two of you are going to move in together one day, but you honestly aren't feeling that route, than it is good for you to let that person know.
8. Stay Positive & Motivated
It gets tough not being able to see you bf/gf whenever you want and there will be times where you feel you're losing the motivation to stay with them. However, you got to keep reminding yourself why you decided to be in this relationship and be optimistic about what the two of you have. Staying motivated is also just as important because in some cases, the distance is just another obstacle to get through and will make the relationship all more worth it.

And that is what I have so far with tips for long distance dating. As for my personal thoughts about long distance, that I didn't already briefly discuss in the tips, I would say that for me, personally, the distance is both good and bad. I feel I never would've gotten to appreciate and gotten to know Anthony the way I have from being in a long distance relationship. I feel that because all we CAN do is talk that it's gotten me to get intimate with him on a different level other than just physical intimacy. And now I don't just love him for his physical features and attributes but for his silly and goofy personality and the way he treats me. And I also think that the distance teaches you not to take the other person for granted and to cherish all the time you have together. Because there will be cases, just like this, where you won't always be with the person nor will you be able to always be there for the person when you really want to.

When thinking more into long distance relationships, or relationships in general, you will without a doubt know when you're with the wrong person. If you're not feeling confident or good about the relationship, you just know. When you're with the right person you don't have to make up excuses for why you're with that person or make a list of pros and cons of why you're with them because when you want to be with someone you put your all into that relationship. That is why I feel that why people think that long distance usually never works is because it's with the wrong person. There is an exception for maybe it's just not the right time and two people just aren't ready for a relationship, but I believe that you basically treat long distance like any other relationship. Yes, it's different in many ways because you're not physically with the person, but your feelings for a certain person shouldn't change because of distance. Kind of like when you move out of your parents house for the first time, you don't stop loving your parents just because you stop seeing them less frequently. And I admit I probably could've used a better analogy but hey, you get what I mean. 


The journey and the experience I've gone through with my boyfriend as of today has been difficult, depressing at times but overall resourceful and I probably wouldn't trade it for anything in the world, other than possibly a lifetime supply of potatoes (just kidding, babe). But I'm glad because  I'm learning more and more about my boyfriend each day along with my appreciation for him is beyond anything I ever thought possible and I just love him soooo so osooooooososososos muchos gracias. 

So yeah, thanks babe for dealing with my $#!& even being hundreds of miles apart, you still the real MVP. LOL 

Okay. 

Yeah I need some sleep. 

Or caffeine. 
So until next time, 

*insert catchy conclusion catch phrase here that I have yet to come up with*

And also don't forget that if you have any questions, comments, suggestions, or wanna tell me about what you think or have experienced with long distance relationships, just leave a comment down below because I would really like to read about it! 

Or also if you want to help me think of a catchier conclusion, leave your ideas down below as well!  

And until another odd number day, (because my posts have somehow always landed on an odd number day)...



With love and best of luck to all the other long distance couples out there! 







Thinking Out Loud: Long Distance Dating/Relationships

But I'm glad because  I'm learning more and more about my boyfriend each day along with my appreciation for him is beyond anything I ever thought possible and I just love him soooo so osooooooososososos muchos gracias. 

So yeah, thanks babe for dealing with my $#!& even being hundreds of miles apart, you still the real MVP. LOL 

Okay. 

Yeah I need some sleep. 

Or caffeine. 
So until next time,

Or also if you want to help me think of a catchier conclusion, leave your ideas down below as well!  

And until another odd number day, (because my posts have somehow always landed on an odd number day)...



With love and best of luck to all the other long distance couples out there! 







I've seriously become addicted to shopping on the Sephora website. I just can't help it sometimes, okay? I've been slowly adding things to my cart items in hopes of one day actually getting them. And so to help me cope with my unhealthy obsession with Sephora and their various makeup and skin products, I decided to put together a post of items on my "Sephora Wishlist."


total for everything: $582

And of course I don't plan on splurging that much all at once, it would be nice if I had the capability to. But of course I plan on saving up and eventually trying out a few of these products in the future. And of course there are also some of the products that I could live without. In fact, I'm living without them right now and I seem to be doing alright. But I am a firm believer in treating yourself every now and then so maybe getting a few of these goodies for myself every now and then wouldn't hurt.

What's on your Sephora/Makeup/Skin Care Wishlist? Let me know down below, I would really be interested in hearing about different products to try and whatnot.

With love,

I've really been digging the whole 90s trend nowadays and although I've never really enjoyed anything denim, I'm slowly creeping in denim pieces in my closet. And here are just a couple pictures I found on tumblr (sorry couldn't find original sources because I've had these saved on my computer for a while) and thought I'd put together a post of Den-inspiration. 

What I really love about denim is that it's very grungy and can vary in shades. I usually go for the subtle, light blue denim because for some reason it just looks more appealing to me. I used to own a dark, blue denim jacket when I was younger and it just, in my opinion, looked all kinds of crazy weird. 

Overall, I'm still trying to find a way to slowly and subtly include more denim in my wardrobe. I just like how, like the leather jacket, there's something about wearing a denim jacket or outerwear piece that toughens up the look. 

And of course we should all know what a badass I am heh heh heh. Just you wait until I find the perfect boyfriend,denim jacket, it'll be like Puppycat wanting his own leather jacket to emphasis not only his coolness and toughness on the inside but the outside too. 

 


What do you guys think of the denim fad? Denim or naw? Cool or naw? Should I stop talking now or naw? Leave comments, questions and expression of love for denim in the comments below. Also if you want to yell at me for not sourcing your picture please contact me via email at sangfroid119@gmail.com so I can kindly source your picture and or take it down.

I was once told that saying you "enjoy the little things in life" or the "simple things" was something superficial to say. Now according to the dictionary "superficial" means basically shallow, of or near the surface etc. Now I feel what this person said was very subjective and is only an opinion, I feel it's important to step back and enjoy the little things. And I also believe it's a good habit to think about some things you're grateful about at the end of your day or when you wake up in the morning.

So some of the little things I was grateful for today was...
Having hot chocolate with extra marshmallows :P
Mmmm. so good, especially on a cold day like today



I was also really happy because my mom brought home oatmeal cookies! And not to sound like a grandma or anything (no offense to all the grandmas out there) but oatmeal or oatmeal raisin cookies are probably my all time favorite kind of cookie out there.
And as you can see the pack of cookies was already halfway gone by the time I got around to taking these pictures.
So just a quick note for you guys, the quickest way to my heart is if you send me a box full of oatmeal / oatmeal raisin cookies <3


I also found a new favorite song! Alina Baraz & Galimatias - "Fantasy." I heard it on my way to campus and refused to get out of the car until the song was over. This is the kind of song I could find myself just driving around at night in the city.
I've heard a few other songs by Alina Baraz & Galimatias and so far I'm liking everything I hear. I really recommend them if you're into chill-mellow music. I don't really know the genre that they would be under so that's what I'm going to call it for now until someone tells me otherwise lol. 

What were some things you guys were grateful for today? Or what little things made you smile today? Let me know down in the comments below!

With Love,

Decided to start off the week by making it a very productive day. I didn't go to class because it snowed the night before and I did not want to risk my life driving half an hour away to campus. So because I didn't go to class, I felt that I should probably do something productive. First off, I decided before I go out and do some errands, that I put my laundry in the wash. Next, I went to the post office to send off the Sheinside dress back to Sheinside because, if you didn't see my review about the dress I bought, let's just say, I either need to grow some boobies overnight and gain about 20 more pounds, but the dress just did not fit me whatsoever. After the post office, I went to the library to return some books that were about to be due. Afterwards, around 1 I got home and decided my room needed a very long overdue deep cleaning and reorganizing. I seriously spent the remainder of the day cleaning and reorganizing my room. I probably wasn't done until about 7 or 8 pm. So yeah. Six to seven hours of cleaning. And while cleaning I actually found some new, yet old little knick knacks and "treasures" that I forgot about.


So this was basically the disaster that happened in my room prior to it being clean. 
^^ And here is the aftermath of 6-7 hours of nonstop cleaning ^^
I feel quite proud of myself . 

 And as you can see, cleaning my room made me find a bunch of little knick knacks like the Sailor Moon playing cards, a random heart picture frame of the Powerpuff GIrls, a cool minion 3D water bottle, a tin Vampire Knight pencil case and an autographed picture of Ryan Potter. I remember how much of a fan girl I was of him when Supah Ninjas first came out. Now he's in short skits with Wong Fu Productions and he's just moving on in life.
Oh and also quick tip, if you have curtains, don't forget to wash them. I know that sounds kind of random because you don't hear about washing curtains often, or at least I don't. But as I was doing something with my curtains to where they fell and as I was trying to put them back up, I noticed this bug's egg/nest thing and I freaked out! Like I was always kind of wondering how this one particular bug got into my room and now I know and it's because they were BREEDING in my room. So gross. But yeah. Just a quick tip for all you people out there. Wash everything and make sure to clean your room at least every other week. I try to keep it clean every day but everyone knows there are just certain days when you just can't and don't feel like being organized or clean. 
If you have any questions, comments or suggestions please leave them in the comment box below! 
Also if you have any weird finds in your room that you want to share with me, you can also leave them down below.

Just found some AMAZING and overwhelmingly cute Bee and Puppycat items! And in case you've been in a coma or under a rock and yet haven't heard of Bee and Puppycat, you can watch the pilot here and first and second episode here and here. For those who are too lazy to watch, which I strongly encourage you watch it now, a I guess I'll do a brief synopsis for you.
Bee and Puppycat is a show by Natasha Allegri. And the show has two main characters, Bee and Puppycat. One day Puppycat literally falls out of the sky and into Bee's life. From then on they would go on intergalactic, Adventure Time-like, out-of-this-world-impossible, missions to make money. The show is basically kind of a mixture of Sailor Moon, Adventure Time and Steven Universe put together. 

3. Puppycat Wallet

And last but not least. Something that is going to be on mine and very soon EVERYONE's Christmas List



Let me just fan girl over how frickin cute this thing is! It comes in 3 different sizes, and you get to choose which one you prefer and there is free shipping to the U.S for orders $75 and over. 
Squishable.com also has a bunch of other cute Squishables that you can check out as well! A few other ones I liked were the corgi, jellyfish and cinnamon bun! 

But if you don't see anything you like in this post, you can look for some other Bee and Puppycat related items at WeLoveFine.com or click this link here for more
They also have a wide variety of other items from other games, shows, and etc. 
So be sure to check them out! 

These would make the perfect gifts for all Bee and Puppycat fans everywhere! 

And that's it for now. If you have any questions, comments, suggestions or just wanna tell me about your mutual obsession with Bee and Puppycat, be sure to leave me a little something-something in the comments below! 
If you're too shy, don't be! Because this is the internet, and you can be whoever you want to be on the internet. ....
But then again. Don't catfish. 
be you...but amplified....
better yet. 
Just stop reading now and don't listening to me.
I don't know what I'm saying.

. . . . .

Recently just took a short mini-trip to New York to see my boyfriend. I spent roughly about five to six days there, and I swear I have never eaten so good in my life. EVER. I am craving so much Italian foods right now, I just can't focus right now. The part of New York I visited was Long Island and it was extremely nice to get away and refreshing to be in a new place. And of course the very first thing we did was get some pizza. We were absolutely starving by the time I landed.


We went to a place called Pizzaoila! And there is a reason why New York is known for their pizza because the pizza was incredibly delicious. I don't know what it is, but regardless of how many times I ate pizza during my stay in New York, but I just never got tired of it. I'm salivating just thinking about it and all the other foods I ate. And if you can't already tell, my boyfriend and I love to eat, I probably don't have such a big appetite as him, but we are crazy food lovers.


The one restaurant that I absolutely cannot wait to go back to was Cafe Amicci. I swear it was like Heaven on Earth. The portion sizes were crazy and the prices were ridiculously affordable. It was like the Italian Cheesecake Factory. But instead of Cheesecake they had pizzas. I am seriously salivating from thinking about the food. My boyfriend ordered the baked ziti and I ordered fried raviolis. SO GOOD. 


We also went over to the Hamptons and walked on the beach. I know. So romance, so romance. It was fuh-reeeeezing though! My teeth were chattering and my body was shivering. Wish I would've packed a thicker coat because it was actually a really nice beach and really relaxing. 

Although I only got to stay for a short period of time, I really needed this mini vacation away from home and just all the stress from work and school. And it was reeeeeaaally good seeing my boyfriend again face-to-face. 


So until next time babe! See you in December :)

With a bunch of love <3

Long Overdue: Trip to New York!
