So today is my first day off in while and I don't have school or work or anything forced upon me. I was going to go on a filming spree today but I've decided that I'm going to spend the day doing things around the house to help my dad out. I first started off with a nice little at home workout which I'll post later in H&F. Now I'm cleaning and reorganizing my room, will be dusting and vacuuming, all that fun stuff. And after that I may just be crazy enough to go through my closets and drawers and get red rid of stuff I dont wear or am now wearing atm. THEN I hope to make a nice banana bread, all before my daddy gets home tonight :)
PS. i've decided I'm going to do a Tag Video later :)
So I'm feeling a little bit lazy so I actually film this as a vlog so here it is!
So I did my first tags video that I found on a channel (thePersianbabe) yesterday that I accidentally stumbled upon and loved. These are the questions asked and I'll attach the video at the bottom so you can have a look!
Here they are:

2. Name 3 things that are physically close to you.
3. What's the weather like right now?
4. Do you drive? If so have you crashed?
5. What time did you wake up this morning?
6. When was the last time you showered?
7. What was the last movie you saw?
8. What does your last text message say?

10. Have you ever been to a different country?
11. Do you like sushi?
12. Where do you buy your groceries?
13. Have you ever taken medication to help you fall asleep faster?
14. How many siblings do you have?
15. Do you have a desktop computer or a laptop?
16. How old will you be turning on your next birthday?
17. Do you wear contacts or glasses?
18. Do you color your hair?
19. Tell me something you are planning to do today.
20. When was the last time you cried?
21. What is your perfect pizza topping?
22. Which do you prefer-hamburgers or cheeseburgers?
23. Have you ever had an all-nighter?
24. What is your eye color?
25. Can you taste the difference between Pepsi and Coke?
Maybe you guys aren't as sappy as I am but this video is really touching and just proves that humans are not the only ones who love. If you are an elephant fan you will love this even more!
That's right, with summer comes heat, heat means outside gatherings which equal BBQ TIME!
Since today there wasn't suppose to be any rain one of my girls decided to have a get together and BBQ some steaks, chicken, burgers and hot dogs, and lets not forget drinks and chips. So we just sat under the shade of her table umbrella but I chose to sit in the sun (seeing as I was the only person who had the desire for darker skin -- all my lovely ladies are of the darker persuasion). We were blasting music, having good conversation, and overall enjoying ourselves. We did have a bit of an issue trying to keep the BBQ lit because it is a coal one not a gas one but it worked out in the end; the food was good (and most importantly cooked!).
Then all of a sudden everyone noticed their phone were telling them that there were was a severe thunderstorm watch and it hit us less than 15 minutes later and we all scurried inside, moved some carpets that were outside drying (funny enough) and all the chair cushions inside as well and then carried on eating and talking inside as if nothing had changed. The storm did help to cut the humidity which is nice but I think everyone is getting a little sick of this weather pattern: hot and sticky all day => storm at night. Today I appreciated the storm though so I'm not complaining.
This was the first BBQ of many for this summer, each better than the last! =)
PS. I managed not to get fried today so GO ME
So today I filmed a couple of videos and after filming, editing and waiting to publish them, I had a couple of issues. The first video (my BH Cosmetics Review which you can view on my channel sydneexo) loaded without any issues or difficulties which is what i expected considering there have been no issues thus far with my uploads. But then I tried to upload my Spring and Summer Nail Polish video and after aborting the first time for some unknown error, when I tried the second time it told me there was "bad value" issue or some nonsense. I thought it was going to stop my upload but it continued, and took forever. Over 2 hours later the link finally goes live, I'm happy, I click it and what happens? A nice big slap in the face! It says "sorry your video was too long so its been rejected and blahblahblah" TWO HOURS OF WAITING AND THEN YOU TELL ME THAT?! They should have stopped it at the very beginning instead of making me suffer like that. I was very very annoyed. But I have since editing the video down to below the "15 minute" mark and will attempt to reupload it tomorrow for all your lovelies to watch!
In the mean time check out today's video: http://bit.ly/mfhHFo
Don't forget that I will be wearing the same thing in tomorrow's video because it was filmed today! So that you don't think I wear clothes two days in a row!
Today was my grandmothers funeral and yesterday was spent doing a bunch of things unfortunately everything I wanted to do for my channel and here got scratched. But I will be making up for it tonight and tomorrow before I go to work.
Today started out in the most horrible way, rain and lots of it, with thunder and lightening (which my nana HATED); so we were all a little disappointed with that and hoped that the weather got its act together quick. I sang mass with my partner in crime Elise, who sings with me and plays the organ every week at mass and apparently I made my aunt cry and brought tears to others because my family has never really heard me sing so as nerve racking as it was they were all proud of me. Everyone was complimenting me and it was getting a little awkward because I always sing and so getting so much attention all at once about something I do so frequently was a little bizarre. While the mass was going on we could just hear the rain pounding and the rolling thunder, luckily there was no electrical issues. After the mass was finished we took a few photos of my nana's urn with her photos and flowers and then we all had to mission out with these huge arrangements of flowers (which look and smell amazing) which were a pain in the butt to transport! We got to the cemetery and my priest Father Joe did another mini ceremony we put flowers into the ground on top of her urn and then most of my family took a little shovel of dirt and placed it on top which in all honesty I think everyone was a little weirded out but it was nice. Then we headed to a reception at a restaurant near by and caught up on everyones lives and had a fun time. Then SOMEONE insisted on photos so everyone who was there was without choice made to pose and we got some funny photos. There are a couple good ones of my and my little (although taller) cousin Alexandria which I'll post as well as some good shots of the flowers.
Overall I think my Nana is finally at peace because she in resting physically and spiritually with my Papa who she hasn't seen for 16 years.
Love you Nana!
