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 Favourite Things About Fall!

CANDLES

HOT CHOCOLATE

HALLOWEEN MOVIES

ANYTHING WITH PUMPKIN

AUTUMN FRAGRANCES

PUMPKIN SPICE LATE

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.

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!

Rainy Days ♡ Sporadic Summer

Hi, Everyone! It’s so good to be sitting in my work room in my house typing away on my blog. I am aware I have vanished for these couple of weeks in July. However, as of today, it is no longer July but the first day of August. If I’m completely honest I’m quite excited for autumn as I may have brought the fall decor out and have started to light the candles. The weather in Toronto is quite lovely however about a week ago it was raining and I thought taking some photos in the rain would be quite lovely. So here are my pics in the rain, enjoy!

Living A Better Life:I Can And I Will ♡ Sporadic Summer

Hello, its me and happy Wednesday!

Hi guys its Sonia coming back with another post, I have been getting great feedback on my last posts and I couldn’t help but do another one because they’re almost therapeutic. Today I’ve had an average typical day but my evening took a left turn which has brought my mood down. I cried for a bit, proved myself right with the outcomes however, all I’m telling myself at this very moment  is that “I can and I will”.  My friends and even my family (some of them) don’t think I have the “brains” to accomplish certain things. They think I’m no competition and have no capacity to achieve something I struggle at. I’m not great at math, its a fact and even I know it. What hurts the most is that they all expect the worst from me and these are people who are meant to protect and nurture me. All I wanna do is just hide under a blanket.

I’ve dealt with depression.

And I’ll tell you its no fun, you close all the doors and leave one for yourself to be alone in. I would say I spent my entire 2013 school year depressed and thats the first time I realized I was struggling  mentally. I hate to admit this, I really do but I was jealous of so many things. Near the end of February I became depressed and all I did was watch tv and be in the dark and in 2015 I became the most laziest version of myself. My marks dropped in school and I just felt like a potato.

I’m not here to complain about my mistakes but let you guys know we can do anything if you work hard for it.

This world is crazy and its hard to balance our entire life whether its school combined with our social life or work and family.  I noticed that we tend to get caught up in the things we have to get done and forget to slow down. It often leaves us to feel like we are drowning. We always make time for the things that make us happy, I may have had a 10 page thesis essay do the next week but I would take time to do something that made me smile. Or else I would’ve gone crazy.

I think blogging has changed my life, I mean when I get inspired I tend to stop and write about it. I really just slow down the time and my mind and forget about the million other things I need to get done.

Thanks for checking out my blog, once again your support means the world to me.

Lots of love, Sonia

Living a Better Life: The Little Things ♡ Sporadic Summer

Happy Tuesday! So I am working on a series called HAPPY DAYS, as I’ve shared that 2016 is the year I’m working on myself. I’m slowly going downhill, as life keeps getting worse and worse. But that’s the thing. When everything is going wrong, you gotta make it right. I have to admit I haven’t been on my blog as much as I would like. And I think that creating posts is a lot of fun. Knowing that people are actually reading it and care about what I think. My website is a 1 year old and its incredible to see all the posts I’ve created.  So enough of me rambling, today I am bring to you my “Living a Better Life” series that I will post at least every month. I will be telling you my journey to my self-love and being happy.

Finding Your Happy Place

If I am completely honest I think for the longest time I didn’t know where I belonged, I started to work on this post in April and left it because I wasn’t motivated. My life two months ago is completely different from my life right now. I’ve been living life on the edge as I’ve been taking risks and getting inspired with the world around me. Its funny how as we get older we get more insecure. I think at the end of the day its not about being perfect or wanting to be perfect but taking each day at a time and see where life takes us.

I fell in love.

I fell in love with myself, I’m finally at a point where I can say I am okay with who I am and what I stand for. I am going to be starting a new school in September and all I want to do is dare myself because I finally realized that taking risks is a good thing.

I realized it was the little things that sparked my personality, I’ve been taking to people who I thought I could never talk to.I’ve been taking risks and they’ve been working out but I know some will backfire and I’ll be disappointed and mad at myself. And thats life, thats what we humans do. We take risks and some of the chances we take will make us fail miserably.  Its safe to say I’ve had rainy days with lighting and thunder but then I remember I got up and kept walking and thats what makes me strong.

I didn’t have a social life, I mean I had friends who were popular and I was only “popular” because of them. I didn’t text guys because I thought I was awkward, ugly and all the things boys didn’t like in girls. So I pushed them away, then I realized I am worth it and I have the right to be okay with what I offer. I started texting more people not just boys but more people in general and felt good.

because I felt free.

And I knew no one could take that away from me, I will never be the opinion of someone who doesn’t know me (yes Taylor Swift taught me this 🙂 ) All the people who have tried to knock me down only inspire me to be better and do better. People will always bring you down but if your passionate about something you have to trust yourself. I know that can be scary but I’ve learned to trust.

trust is a good thing.

“What you think of yourself is much more important than what people think of you”.

You are always going to be judged so you might as well be yourself. Realistically there’s a million reasons on why you shouldn’t do something but we still do it anywhere, because we know we rather would know then not know.

You are so much more than you think, just hold on God will give you strength. Just remember you are not alone and can do anything if you put your mind to it.

Lots of love, Sonia

Selena Gomez Concert Experience: Revival Tour ♡ Sporadic Summer

Selena-Gomez-Revival-Tour-Style.jpgHello,Friends! Happy Canada Day! Today is all about my queen Selena Gomez. I fricken love her she is my ultimate women crush everyday. Today I want to talk about my experience at her Revival show in Toronto on May 25 at the Air Canada Centre. I have been a Selenator since I was 4 years old and I am not exaggerating my first concert was Selena (We Own The Night Tour). Now being 13 nothing has changed, she has only strengthened me. I’ve never met Selena but one day I will and we’ll laugh, smile and talk. Anyways this post is all about the things I loved about the show and the things I wish could’ve happened. This is no hate towards Selena as I absolutely adore her. She was my first album first, concert and my love for her has not changed a bit since the start.

  1. The first thing that I loved about the show was the start, Selena was behind a curtain and flashing images of her with the audio of revival playing as the start to the show. This brought anticipation as everyone was waiting to see Selena.
  2. Her vocals were off the roof, if you don’t think Selena can sing go to her show she’ll prove you wrong. Selena is talented and knows what she can and cannot do with her voice and the album and tour reflects what her voice can do. During the end of slow down Sel reaches for that high note which she slayed.
  3. The costumes, let’s just take a moment to appreciate her stylist Chris Classen. My least favorite outfit was probably the first one which is the cream outfit. However the black one is so pretty. Already two months into the tour she has new outfits and I love all except the one for act 5. Personally I don’t like fur coats but her leotard was gorgeous.
  4. I truly wished Selena talked more during the show the longest she spoke was during act 3 where she sang who says. The last time I saw her was in 2012 so I kinda wished she talked more you don’t get to see you idol everyday.
  5. As well I wish the show was a bit longer I would say it was about an hour and a half, I would’ve preferred it being two hours.
  6. I admired the set list, I felt she started off with her classic hits and moved on with a low key vibe for act 2 and slowed it down on act 3. And brought it back during act 4 with me and my girls. And I just loved how she started with revival and ended the show with it I just thought that was really cool and different.

Here are my pictures:

I hope you guys enjoyed this post, defiently something different from my usual posts. I am so glad to be back here on my blog once again. As my life got really stressful with school but here I am back on summer vacation and ready to work on new things for you guys. Starting this Monday I will be starting my July series called “Sporadic Summer” as I will be posting weekly but its a casual thing.  I will be back with another post on Monday!

Lots of love, Sonia
