I had my Spring Break recently and my friends wanted to spend some of it in Santa Barbara to party hard. We partied...moderately. HA! Anyway, they decided that it'd be fun to go to the beach. Little did we know it was FREEZING out. My little stick legs were trembling with cold. No one was at the beach. It was grey, cloudy, and sad. Shorts were a bad idea.

Let Them Eat Cake
It's been warm and blustery lately in Los Angeles, meaning it's the perfect weather for tea! My beautiful cousin, Elaine, recently got engaged and held a tea party in LA. We were served a slew of different kinds of teas and given platters of cute tea sandwiches, scones, desserts and gossip (Mmm! My favorite). Played lots of cute bridal shower games--none of which I won. But by the end I moaned about getting second place so much they gave me a centerpiece of flowers. Haha!
Knew there was going to be quite a bit of walking, so I wore my comfy heels today. I like them because they go well with my current go-to summer dress. Wore minimal makeup because I wanted a light, youthful look (AKA I was lazy). My lovely sisters took all these photos, so a big thanks to them! And excuse the awkward posing. I'll get that whole "nonchalant, looking off into the distance, pretending to walk" pose down soon. But for now, you get awkward smiles!

Hello, everybody! I'm an old blogger with a new blog, so I'll just do a quickie introduction.
My name is Torie and I'm a 20 year old geeky girl with an insatiable appetite for bad television and good books. I'm studying as an English major right now at university and I aspire to be a writer of fictional novels that capture the hearts of Oprah and of America!
In the meantime, I'm going to blog about my life, my ventures into beauty, fashion, and most importantly, food. I'm absolutely terrible at beauty and fashion, but that's what blogging is for--looking back at my terrible beauty/fashion decisions and learning from them. And I'm sure you've already seen a million blogs of girls being beautiful, knowing how to perfectly apply makeup and exactly what shoes to wear with what outfit, so I'm pitching a brand new blog to you--a clueless girl who doesn't know how to do anything! Laugh with me or laugh at me, as I try to learn to be lovely!
Here's a sneak peek at my life as of recently.
I've also been practicing eyeshadows with my UD Naked palette, but the other day I put it on and I looked like I got punched in the face. My boyfriend laughed at me! So I'm watching tutorials and drawing out little diagrams for myself to practice on. One day I will master it, and when that day comes, it will be glorious. In the meantime, if you know of any good video tutorials, comment and send them my way! Self-induced black eyes don't look good on me!
