Samsung 10.1" Netbook featuring Intel Atom Processor N450P - Pearl White

I've been wanting a Notebook for university for a long time now, and I finally found the one with the help of my boyfriend:

The Samsung N150P is sleek, compact and designed to keep you in touch with your digital world. It features a 10.1" display, 160GB hard drive, Wireless N, and plenty of inputs so you can stay connected to your peripheral devices. And with an Intel Atom processor and 1GB system memory, you'll have the power to work for up to 8 hours on a single charge.

Product Features

The Intel Atom processor and 1GB system memory offer the ideal power for this mini companion. This dynamic duo helps you work with basic applications and surf the Web while the system runs fast, smooth, and for as long as 8 hours on a single charge (dependant on usage).

  • The 10.1" Led-backlit display is ultra-vibrant so everything you see is crisp and clear, while keeping the N150 compact enough to toss in your bag
  • Store your most important files on the 160GB hard drive
  • Wireless N lets you explore your online world at any wireless hotspot
  • 3 USB ports let you connect with compatible devices to work or play
  • Quickly transfer content with the 3-in-1 media card reader
  • Pre-installed Windows 7 Starter Edition

Picture and description from Best

It's not the most beautiful - I would have like it in black, but the only color available was this ugly pearly white -  and it's absolutely not the one I would have chosen if it wasn't for the battery life (it lasts up to 8 hours). I got it on sale at Best Buy for $319.99 instead of $349.99, which is a pretty good deal for a 6 cells. In fact, the main deciding factor for me was the battery life because I need it to be able to last through a day at uni.

 I don't like the red stripes either -_-

See how small it is? And it only weights 1.24 kg!

Of course, it requires some practice to get used to the tiny keyboard (it's a 83 keys). I'm typing so fast that I always make mistakes as I often press two keys at once.

And besides that... it has a hard drive capacity of 160 GB, so of course I won't be using it to store pictures.

Is Pitt Going To Be Any Good This Year?

They are ranked 15th in both of the pre-season polls, but I just have no idea if that is too high, too low or just about right. I do know they have cute cheerleaders, though, so that's good enough for me.

Alabama Cheerleaders Excited to Defend National Championship

The college football season gets started this week, and I am VERY excited. I love college football more than any other college or pro sport, so this is a very exciting time of year for me. To get ready for the season, I thought we should highlight the preseason #1 team in the nation: Alabama Crimson Tide.

Thank you stepmom!

My boyfriend's mother went to The Bay this week-end and she found some great stuff on sale. She also got those two fragrance samples for free and she gave them to me:

Daisy by Marc Jacobs Eau de toilette spray:
Radiant and charming, Daisy is a sparkling floral bouquet capturing the vintage edge of the violet.

I'm not a fan. This fragrance is way too light for me, and it's the same as smelling a flower. Nothing interesting, really.

Davidoff Cool Water Woman Eau de toilette: 
The first fresh aquatic fragrance born of nature's most shimmering, most luminous essences. The zesty freshness of blackcurrant and honeydew blend with aquatic florals to create this radiant, sensual scent.

This smells fresh and citrusy. It's a nice change from my usual sweet fragrances!

Mizzou Cheerleaders Try To Cheer Me Up After Starting RB Suspended

Mizzou suspended their starting running back/senior captain yesterday for potential criminal charges related to an alleged sexual assault from June. This thing is really odd, honestly, and I'm not convinced charges will actually ever get filed, but it still sucks as a Missouri fan. So I'm posting some Mizzou cheerleaders to get my mind off it.

Speaking of Mizzou cheerleaders, if you haven't already seen the pics of Mizzou cheerleader Paige, you really should check them out here and here.

Cute Houston Cheerleader With A Bad Attitude

She's adorable, so why is she so pissed off. Maybe Case Keenum hasn't asked her out yet. That would bum me out too, sweetie.

I Love Those Purple Pants

Who knew the tight purple pants the cheerleaders at Clemson wear could be so sexy? Oh wait, I guess tight pants on a cheerleader's body is pretty much always sexy. My bad.

FOTD & OOTD: Geneviève & Donald's wedding

Saturday, my friends and I gathered together to celebrate our friends Geneviève and Donald's wedding, and I wanted to share some pictures with you.

The wedding was celebrated in a church somewhere in Laval, but I don't remember which one it was. The reception was held at Buffet Il Gabbiano, which is where my friends and I celebrated our prom!

Unfortunately, I absolutely didn't have the time to snap some close-up pictures of my makeup, but it was a basic gold and brown smokey eye - just like I always do (=

 The bride and the groom

We have known Gen since high school, so it's great to still be in touch with her and to have the chance to be with here in this very special day. Donald is also a great and funny guy!

I got this dress from Winner for only $25! 

 I tried to find pictures of the back of my dress, and those are the only ones I found.

Strapless dresses are so annoying, but I couldn't resist this one... especially in this color! I also wore some bracelets and earrings (the same the bride wore!) that I borrowed from my mother, along with a simple necklace I got from Etsy. I wanted all the attention to be on the dress!

Véro, Gen, Sara and me before entering in the church.

With the girls, agai

With my other friend Gen (who reads my blog - Hi Gen!)

 The cake! Yummy ^^


And these are the only pictures I found where you can - almost - cleary see my makeup:

Annabelle Galaxy Eyeshadow Palette - Shooting Star

Maybelline Expert Wear Eyeshadow Singles - Vanilla (highlighter)
Maybelline Unstoppable Eyeliner - Onyx

Annabelle Zebra Bronzing Powder - Haute Gold
Marcelle Minerlas Powder Blush - Natural Glow
Annabelle Satellite Pearl Powder - Celestial Pearl

For my hair, I went for the usual loose waves. At first, I wanted to curl it with a curling iron but I ran out of time. Next time, maybe?
