Morning Routine ♡ Sonia T

Hello Everyone!

I hope your having a lovely day whenever your reading this and want to send positive thoughts my way to all of you. Today I wanted to write about my typical morning, to be quite honest I love the mornings something about the morning time gives me a kinda rush where I feel unstoppable

So the first thing I do after my alarm wakes me up is have a lye in for a bout 3-5 minutes, I generally wake up between 5-7 A.M..

I tend to take a shower and then eat but I am slowly trying to have breakfast and then eat. So I will head downstairs and make something to eat, because school is so intense I no longer eat in the morning which is not a good thing. Since its the new year, my goal is to eat breakfast. I usually make oatmeal, English muffin, omelette, waffles and sometimes pancakes. I enjoy eating my breakfast with something calm to watch so I generally put on a show called “Good Witch” I highly recommend watching it.

After finishing my breakfast I will head upstairs and take a shower. I usually shave my legs, wash my face and brush my teeth and of course wash my body.

Now that my shower is finish, I head to my room and get dressed. And you’ve probably guessed that I take forever to figure out what I want to wear because I don’t pick my outfits the night before. It generally takes me 20 minutes to pick something to wear and sometimes 5 minutes before I have to leave the house I’ll change.

After I’ll head back down and just relax and do last minute things like pack my bag, and print out homework. I have been awful at packing lunch and since September I’ve been buying lunch like crazy. So I also make lunch, and then I place it in the lobby/ main hall.

After finishing my last minute tasks I’ll head up to my room and start my makeup. I keep it quite simple, I do light foundation, sometimes concealer, blush, sometimes bronzer and mascara and of course setting powder.

When my makeup is done its generally time to head out to school so I put on my coat and shoes and head out the door.

So this is my typical morning routine, some days I won’t get out of bed until 7:00 but on days that I wake up before 7 this is what my morning looks like.  I love the mornings, because I live with my family it can be challenging to have time for yourself. I find the mornings a great way to start the day. Thanks for reading this post, see you soon!

New Year’s Resolutions ♡ Sonia T

Hello! Happy 2017 everybody!

It is absolutely crazy that another year has passed, I say this every year but 2016 went by so fast. It’s like I blinked once and bam it’s the new year. I think in 2016 I’ve learned a lot, with quite of few “downs” in my life I think I’m looking forward to 2017 as a fresh start. I think there will be quite of few changes that I will make regarding the way I choose to live. And be sure to check out my new years resolution from 2016, I was reading it earlier from today and was laughing because I failed all my goals. I mean, who doesn’t suck at keeping their new years resolution. I guess this year I will try harder, I thought you guys would enjoy seeing what goals and resolutions I’ve made for myself this year. It’s crazy to think about where I was a year ago, I no longer have free time, I’m constantly stressed out and there’s always something happening in my life. Needles to say I was much happier a year ago than I am now. I’ve made so many new friends and all in all my life has dramatically changed. In all honestly 2016 was an awful year for me and it still is however, I’m rising above my issues and trying to have a new start because that’s all I can really do. Enough of my ramble, here are my 2017 resolutions….

  1. Wake up early. Ever since school started I’ve been so lazy in the morning, I refuse to wake up early because I’m so exhausted. I’m so tired that I know longer wake up in the middle of the night which is crazy because I always do but not anymore.
  2. Sleep early. If I want to wake up early I have to sleep early, I want to sleep at least by 10:00 but realistically speaking 10:30.
  3. Workout. Last year I started to work out in the mornings at 5 A.M. I want to restart that right from where it all started. I think working out gives me that extra energy boost plus it gives me a positive mind, body and soul.
  4. Time Management. As I’m in school a lot of assignments compile and I get H.W. daily and what ends up happening is I have to complete 7 things all in one day. Needless to say I get stressed out and all panicky. To avoid that I want to start planning my time and making use of every second. I have a tendency to procrastinate.
  5. Work Harder. I really want to work hard in school, I’m already giving my everything in school. I’m quite pleased with my marks at the moment but I still want to continue to work hard and even more harder. Reach for that extra mile and do anything I can to make the work that I produce better.
  6. Drink Water. Last year I had this goal and in all honestly I thought I was doing a good job at drinking a 1 L of water but as the year went on. I was horrible and drinking water some times all I had was a sip of water so this year I want to drink as much water as I possibly can.
  7. Keep my room clean. As the week goes on my room just gets messier and messier so I really want to control the messiness in my room.
  8. Pick outfits for the week on Sunday. One major reason my room is messy is because my clothes are everywhere. Being a girl, I have a closet full of clothes but have nothing to wear to school. And I try on a lot of outfits and so a huge pile of clothes suddenly appear all over my room. So I want to start picking my outfits for the week or even the night before.

So here are some of my goals/resolutions, I am sure that I will have more goals as the new year progresses but as of right now these are my goals. Thanks so much for reading this, I will see you soon.

Christmas Tag ♡ Blogmas Day 6

Hi everyone,

welcome back to my blog, today is Blogmas Day 6 and I am so flippin excited and cannot believe that there is one month left till 2017. Rather than thinking about 2017 lets get through the holidays first. Today I thought I’d start off with the Christmas tag, last year I did the winter tag which was requested by one of you and now I’d thought I’d do the Christmas tag.

1. What is your favourite Christmas film?

  • This is such a hard thing to pick but to be honest I don’t think I have an ultimate one. There’s the classics of course that I watch every year like Home alone and ELF but I absolutely love the hallmark channel. They constantly have films running gon tv that I love watching it makes me feel all “homey” so anything from that tv network I really love.

2. Have you ever had a White Christmas?

Yes, always I’m from Toronto and so many people refer to Canada as the “North Pole” and to be quite honest it sometimes feels like it. Last year I didn’t have a white Christmas sadly, but I have in the past and its magical.

3. Where do you usually spend your holiday?

  • Generally at home with my family, but one year I went to Walt Dinsey world which is a dream of mines to go and that dream came true in 2014. I also want to spend the holidays in New York because I think it’s one of the best times to go and the lights are all out on the streets. It’s absolutely gorgeous.

4. What is your favourite Christmas song?

  • I don’t have in particular so I’m gonna list a bunch
  • Sleigh Ride – Pentaonix
  • It the most wonderful time of the year – Andy Williams
  • Ariana Grande her entire Christmas album

5. Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?

No, but I am guilty of opening them and re-wrapping them because I can’t wait to find out what I got for Christmas.

6. Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?

Let’s see… Rudolph, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Blitzen .. thats all I know

7. What holiday traditions are you looking forward to most this year?

  • Making the most of the holidays, giving back and being more appreciative of everything that I have and just really enjoying this time of year.

8. Is your Christmas tree real or fake?

Fake

9. What is your all-time favourite holiday food/sweet treat?

Gingerbread cookies and the Lindor reindeer chocolates.

10. Be honest: do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better?

I think I like receiving gifts but I think that giving gifts is so much better because I love seeing my friends reactions to what I got them especially since I put so much thought and effort into the gift.

 

Thanks for reading today’s post check back soon for another Blogmas!

Blogmas!

Hello, everyone! It has been quite a while since I’ve been here on my blog. The last time I posted was nearly the beginning of August. Lots have happened in my life, I’ve been in school again for nearly 3 months now and I’m so exhausted. Last year was my first time doing Blogmas and I know I didn’t post every day and I absolutely know I won’t be able to post every day but I do indeed want to make an attempt. I will guarantee a post once a week. Christmas is my favourite time of year and if I’m being completely honest I was decorating my room for the holidays on October 31st. I want to capture my holidays with you through my posts so be prepared to see new and much better content. My posts will go live at 9 A.M.

Much love, Sonia.T

Autumn ♡ Mylifeasonia

Hello everyone! It has been a while since I’ve done a blog, lots of things have happened in my life as I’ve started a new school and let me tell you the amount of homework I get daily is insane. However, I’ve made so many new friends and all in all its a new learning experience. Today I really wanted to do another autumn post as I had done one last year as many of you know autumn is my favourite right next to winter. This past weekend I was getting so excited to see people putting pumpkins outside their house and I can tell you I’m so ready for Halloween movies. If I’m being completely honest I did watch a Christmas movie two days ago and not gonna lie I was planning to watch another one. A little fun fact I actually decorated my room for fall in August, I know that seems crazy and I mean it was but I couldn’t wait to see the leaves falling and the weather feeling more cooler.

My Natural Everyday Summer Makeup Look ♡ Sporadic Summer

 

Hi, everyone! I’ve been wearing makeup every day for 2 years now and in these two years, I’ve discovered products I can’t live without. Summer especially can be quite challenging to find the perfect beauty regime as its always hot. For the most part, summer days are spent at the beach or even just outside in the sweaty weather. You’re quite lucky if you get a breeze with humid conditions. I try my best to stay away from makeup in summer but when I want to look like I’ve got my eight hours of sleep I’ll slap some makeup.

Here’s Some of What I Love:

Covergirl Stay Luminous Oil-Free Foundation (from the outlast collection)

  • You might be scared that this is a dewy foundation that might make you look more sweaty in the hot weather but fear not it gives a glow without making you look like a grease ball.

Mac Pro-Longwear Powder

  • I love MAC’s powders as they add some extra coverage, the long wear collection no doubt is quite popular. To ensure your face makeup doesn’t slip I love this powder because I know it keeps my “face in place” while I’m out and about.

NYX Liquid Suede

  • This range from NYX is so awesome, I recently purchased the shade soft-spoken and fell in love immediately it’s definitely a dark nude shade but with a darker pinker tone which I quite like. And wouldn’t generally go for, I guess I was quite experimental when I was throwing it in the basket.

MAC Studio Fix Boldblack Lash Mascara

  • I like this product enough to wear it but it’s not one I would tell people to go buy, I say this because it’s a basic mascara and I know I could purchase better ones from the drugstore. Just because a product is higher end doesn’t necessarily mean its better than drugstore. I for one think drugstores sell some of the best mascaras, just sayin.

9a728e9b-b965-44a7-a1c0-cf17cc79e8aa

So these are some of the products I love and have been using during the summer, I noticed that I like a lot of drugstore but I feel like their products are great for summer as they feel lightweight on the skin. Let me know if you give any of these products a try as I would love to know what you thought. See you in my next post!
