The TMI Tag!

This is the latest tag that seems to be circling around Youtube and since I don't have a Youtube channel, I decided that I wanted to do it on my blog! It's kinda of a long tag, but many of the questions have shorter answers. I also thought that this tag was a little different than the fashion-related tags I usually do and that it would be kinda fun answering the questions!

1) What are you wearing?
I am currently in a sweatshirt and yoga pants. Today was definitely a lazy day.
2) Ever been in love? 
Considering I have never had a boyfriend, it would have to be a no :)
3) Ever had a terrible breakup? 
Like I said above, never had a boyfriend so I haven't had to deal with a breakup before :)
4) How tall are you? 
I'm a whopping 5'2". Yes, I know I'm short.
5) How much do you weigh? 
I really don't think it's important giving both the height and weight, so I'm just going to give the height :)
6) Any tattoos? 
Nope, and I not sure if I would ever get one. I'm have nothing against tattoos but I don't think I could commit to have something being on my skin all my life.
7) Any piercings? 
Nope, not even ear piercing! I'm not afraid of nettles, but I just never got around to it.
8) OTP? 
Emily and Adian from Revenge! I want them to be together so bad!
9) Favorite show? 
Scrubs! That show can always make me laugh and I love to watch JD and Turk's bromance! I have seen each and every episode at least 3 times! Definitely recommend it!
10) Favorite bands? 
Coldplay! I love Coldplay and their songs either want to make you get up and dance or are filled with emotion and feeling! Love them!
11) Something you miss? 
I miss when I was able to eat whatever I wanted without worrying about gaining weight. I also kinda miss the strong relationships I had with some friends from high school (but I don't miss high school itself haha).
12) Favorite song?
My all time favorite song is Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol (love them!) but I have recently been loving "Human" by Christina Perri.
13) How old are you? 
18 :)
14) Zodiac sign? 
Gemini, whatever that means. I actually like looking at horoscopes, but I don't actually know the reputation of a Gemini.
15) Quality you look for in a partner? 
Good sense of humor and kindness :) As well as confidence
16) Favorite Quote? 
For some reason, I'm blanking out on this one quote that I love and it's bugging the heck out of me...but I also like the quotes "Better to be the one who smiled than the one who didn't smile back" and "Maybe it's not about the happy ending. Maybe it's about the story" and simply "live, laugh, love, eat, repeat".
17) Favorite actor/actress? 
I have always adored Emma Stone, however, I have also been really liking Lily Collins!
18) Favorite color? 
I love both blue and green!
19) Loud music or soft? 
I like music that's in the middle. I don't like it when my heads pounding from the music but I also usually don't like falling asleep while listening during the middle of the day.
20) Where do you go when you're sad? 
Since I'm in college, I don't really have many options besides curled up in a fuzzy blanket on my bed with my computer (which I do regardless). At home though I would go to my room.
21) How long does it take you to shower? 
Around 10-15 minutes...although I would love to stay in longer but I feel like I would be judged. Add a few minutes if I decide to shave.
22) How long does it take you to get ready in the morning? 
I don't have any super early classes this quarter, so I like taking my time getting ready. I usually take around 30-40 minutes to get ready, dressed, and eat breakfast in the morning.
23) Ever been in a physical fight? 
I don't think so...I'm not a physical person but I may have had a fight with my sister when I was younger.
24) Turn on? 
Kindness, outgoing, and sense of humor!
25) Turn off? 
When someone tries to fit in with a certain crowd because it's "cool" and you get the "I'm too cool for you" vibe/look from them even though everything seemed cool between you two before he started trying super hard. Basically when someone tries to be someone they're not.
26) The reason I joined Youtube? 
Well, I don't have a Youtube channel (this tag is a Youtube tag but I just thought it on my blog) however I have honestly been thinking about starting one for like four years. As for my blog, I started it in 2011. :)
27) Fears? 
I have a fear of settling, being late to places, and not living up to their expectation.
28) Last thing that made you cry? 
The last time that I full on cried and needed a tissue was probably during the summer when my friends left for college, since I didn't leave for another few weeks. That's the last time I really let my feelings out. It's kinda hard to cry when you're in college and have two roommates.
29) Last time you said you loved someone? 
I said it to my mom when I talked to her on the phone earlier this week :)
30) Meaning behind your YouTube Name? 
Once again, this is a Youtube tag, but I'm bringing it to my blog, so I'll instead write about the meaning behind my blog name. There's actually not really a reason behind the name...I just like ruffles and I thought knows sounded good with it and wanted it to mean like "knots of life", but absolutely doesn't really mean that haha
31) Last book you read? 
I'm guessing this doesn't include textbooks. If it does, then it would be a textbook on world history. If not, then it would be "Along for the Ride" from during the summer (I'm not much of a reader except for beach-reads).
32) The book you're currently reading? 
Like I said, I'm not much a book-reader to be honest, so I've just been into my textbooks (which is kinda lame).
33) Last show you watched? 
The last show I watched was "The Bachelor" last night.
34) Last person you talked to? 
My roommate
35) The relationship between you and the person you last texted? 
The last person I texted was my mom.
36) Favorite food? 
I have always love Italian food and my favorite dish is anything with cream sauce! I also have been loving sushi and Indian food, especially Palak Paneer!
37) Place you want to visit? 
I would love to visit France or Italy! I have never been to Europe and I would love to go!
38) Last place you were? 
The last place that I was at was my last class.
39) Do you have a crush? 
I haven't had a crush like I did in high school when I really liked someone, and I haven't really been paying much attention to that kind of thing since I've been in college, but there may be someone I have my eye on ;)
40) Last time you kissed someone? 
I've never had my first kiss :)
41) Last time you were insulted? 
I don't know..aside from like my sister I can't think of the last time I was insulted... :/
42) Favorite flavor of sweet? 
I love most sweets, but I absolutely love milk chocolate and white chocolate! That is seriously my weakness!
43) What instruments do you play? 
I played the piano for 12 years and I played the flute for 7 years. Honestly though I sucked at the flute and never really liked it, but I did really like piano. :)
44) Favorite piece of jewelery? 
I don't ever wear jewelry so I don't think I have a favorite jewelry piece.
45) Last sport you played? 
The last team sport that I played where I was actually on a team was softball in middle school. I really liked softball and kinda regret that I stopped playing.
46) Last song you sang? 
I have been having either Dark Horse by Katy Perry or Human by Christina Perri. I know they're two completely different songs but I have kinda liking both :) 
47) Favorite chat up line? 
I love any hilarious pick up lines, but I like "Can I tie your shoes? Because I don't want you falling for anyone else". I also think nerdy pick up lines are hilarious.
48) Have you ever used it? 
Nope, I probably never will.
49) Last time you hung out with anyone? 
Last evening
50) Who should answer these questions next? 

I hope you enjoyed this (long) post!

Get the Style: Vanessa Hudgen's Street Style

I absolutely adore Vanessa Hudgen's style! Although I couldn't personally pull off her look, I think that her vintage, edgy, yet a little girly look stands out from the crowd! The lucky girl who's dating Austin Butler is usually seen in printed maxi skirts and pants along with a pair of big round sunglasses! Read on to see my take on her look and how to get her style in stores! 

Outfit #1
This is the more edgy look of all of Vanessa Hudgen's outfits. Start off by pairing a graphic black tank with a black leather jacket. Next, pair a pair of black leggings with the tops as well as wrapping a blue flannel plaid shirt around the waist for that casual look. For shoes, Vanessa is wearing fringe booties, however, I think that any pair of black suede booties would work. As for accessories, pair the look with round sunglasses, a gold pendant necklace, and a black satchel to finish off the look! 

Outfit #2
This Outfit it the perfect, relaxed, spring outfit! I love the pairing of a cream cropped open-knit sweater with a patterned maxi skirt. For shoes, it looked like she was wearing suede boots, so pair the outfit with camel-colored suede booties with the outfit. As for accessories, add a quilted crossbody bag, black and gold necklace, and large black sunglasses!

Outfit #3
This is definitely my favorite of all of the outfits! I love the pairing of blue printed crop pants and white lace bralette with a cream crochet long cardigan! Pair the outfit with a pair of black wedges. Accessorize the outfit with a long silver cross necklace, small brown crossbody bag, and tortoiseshell round sunglasses to finish off the outfit!

I Got To Meet Bethany Mota!

This post is a little different than what I usually write about, but it's still kind of beauty and fashion related...Yesterday I met Bethany Mota! Also known as Macbarbie07 on Youtube, she was on tour promoting her Aeropostale line and held some meet-ups along the way! Luckily I currently live one of the cities where she was holding the meetups! Bethany was one of the first Youtubers I started watching around four years ago and its amazing to see how far she's come! Here are some photos that I took with her!

It amazed me how many people were at the meet up! Literally hundreds of people! Although I waited in line with a friend for a few hours, it was exciting to meet her! She is so pretty in person and I just wish that I could have talked to her, but there were hundreds of people in line, so there wasn't much time for talking! It was really amazing to meet her though!

I hope you enjoyed this post!

Soft Smokey Valentine's Day Makeup Tutorial!

Valentine's Day is tomorrow and this makeup look is perfect whether you go one a special date with that special someone or whether you're just having a night out with friends! Valentine's Day usually screams pink makeup for many people, and this look incorporates a little pink without it overwhelming the eye look. Read on to see how to achieve a soft smokey makeup look!

  • Foundation: Start off the makeup look by applying your favorite foundation. For a fresh faced makeup look, go for a lighter foundation. For a more formal makeup look, go for a fuller coverage foundation if desired.
  • Bronzer: Warm up your complexion with a soft bronzer, focusing it in the hollows of your cheeks and temples. If you want to warm up your complexion more, apply the bronzer lightly across your forehead, your hairline, and chin.
  • Light Pink Blush: Sweep a light blush across the apples of your cheeks for a more innocent look!
  • Highlighter: Finish the face makeup with a highlighter applied to the top of your cheekbones and down the bridge of your nose.
  • Light Champagne Eyeshadow: Apply the color all over you lid to your crease. Also apply some to the tear duct area and blend a little along the inner part of your bottom lash line.
  • Medium Warm Toned Brown Eyeshadow: Using a fluffy blending brush, apply this color into your crease and outer corner to your liking, focusing it mostly in your crease. Taking a pencil brush, apply the eyeshadow along your bottom lash line and blending it out.
  • Dusty Pink-Rose Eyeshadow: For a little subtle pop of pink, using a small pencil brush, apply the color directly into your crease. Then using a fluffy blending brush, blend the color into your crease color. For best results, apply a little of the color to your crease, building it up to your liking. 
  • Black Liquid Eyeliner: Apply a black liquid eyeliner to your upper-lashline, making a small wing at the end to your liking. 
  • Black Mascara: Finish the eye look with two coats of black mascara to the top lashes and one coat to the bottom lashes!

  • Light Pink Lipstick: Apply a light pink lipstick such as L'Oreal's Lipstick in "Ballerina Shoes". This will compliment the eyes and face well!
  • Light Pink Lipgloss: Finish off the look with a light pink lipgloss such as L'Oreal's Infallible Lipgloss in "Bloom" if you prefer a glossier look!

Get the Look: Hermione Granger's Yule Ball Makeup Look!

When Hermione Granger was about to enter the Yule Ball in her updo and ruffled dress, she took everyone's breath away (especially Ron Weasley's). She was no longer in her school uniform and instead wore a gorgeous purple dress and heels. She even wore a little bit of makeup. Her makeup was light and minimal while bringing out her features. This look would be perfect for a winter formal or even for prom! Read on to see my take on her Yule Ball makeup look!

  • Tinted Moisturizer and Concealer: Apply to wear it's needed. Hermione didn't have much coverage, but did have a little. Next, take a 
  • Rose Pink Blush: Apply lightly to the apples of your cheeks and blend along the cheekbones to the sides of your face to create a little bit of a contouring effect. 
  • Pearl Highlighter: Apply to the tops of your cheekbones to get her glowy look.


  • Eyebrow PowderLightly fill in your eyebrows with  that suits your hair color. Hermione had filled in eyebrows that really framed her face.  
  • Brown Eyeliner: Apply a thin line to the outer half of the upper lash line.
  • Black Mascara: Apply one coat to the top and bottom lashes.

It didn't seem like Hermione was wearing lipstick or many lip products, so instead, apply a light pink lip gloss to finish the whole look!

I hope that you found this post helpful!
