  26. Okay. I know this sounds fakey, but I have been trying to follow Caren's blog for ever, but every time I click the 'follow' button, it looks like my mom's logged in, and it tells me to sign in as a different user. Then it tells me I can't sign in as a different user. It's really frustrating! But, I do follow Elycia!

  63. OKE SO TAKE TWO ON THIS COMMENT! because last time it didn't work! or it did and i just cant find my comment... ahah! so here i begin:
    My favourite band of all time is probably the Black Eyed Peas, but not for their new songs which are all techno and dance type songs, but for their old songs such as "lets get it started" and "pump it" (which happens to also have my favourite music video of all time? haha! it was the first video i saw on youtube.. just so you know! ;) ) and my favourite artist at the moment is Auburn, the one who you showed me! Especially the two songs you showed me, Perfect Two and All About Him. I heard All About Him in a store two days ago and that made me really excited so i had to scream and notify everyone! :D
    hmm and now i will tell you about every single picture in this blog. the first one! STRID WITH A GIVEAWAY RIBBON! how do you make those things? oh so beautiful! The second one... A MAGAZINE! well, it says good style ideas, and if its coming from you who happens to have the best style ever, then it must be good! picture three.... STRID WITH A SCARF! amazingly beautiful, and i love that scarf! not to mention the batman shirt hiding under it... after that is a broach! i dont really know what to do with broaches, but its very nice! and the cloth under it is pretty... haha! NEXT a... poppy pavot? i dont really know what it is, BUT IT LOOKS MODERN AND I LIKE IT! HAHA! oo purple eyeliner.. that would make some eyes beautiful! OH NOW I SEE THAT THE MODERN THING WAS SOME RED LIPSTICK! or something that showed red lipstick? or represented it? well anyways, bright red lipsick is always good! OMG A POLAROID IMPULSE! i dont know how you could part with this thing! then again, i do not have 50 cameras of amazing types... does it have a print out thing in the front? oo i have to go and find myself one of these!!! ITS SO LOVELY! HAHA! next.. HEADBANDS! woahhh they are so beautiful! i dont know how someone could make these from their own hands! "Love Elycia!" MUST BE AMAZINGLY SKILLED! i must visit their blog... last one is a beautiful woman wearing amazing sunglasses and a 100 sign! OH WAIT THATS YOU! OH HOW EXCITING OH HOW EXCITING! well, now i must pop over to these blogs!
    by the way, thank you for advice and helpfulness on every aspect of my life! <3 <3

    LOTS OF LOVE!
