How I Packed for Spring Break in England and Scotland

Okay, hey, everyone!  Recently, on my spring break vacation, the local youth symphony took the members (like me~) to preform in England and Scotland over 10 days. This was actually my first time leaving the country and I actually had no idea on what and how to pack for an airplane trip.  So now, it's almost a month after the trip and I am now a pro at pleasing the NSA and I can now teach you guys how to also please the NSA. (Please keep in mind that I'm packing to preform over in England/Scotland as well, so some things I packed might not be needed for you. And I'm not sure if this packing style is legal in other countries because I flew from the US to England/Scotland so make sure to do proper research yourself!)
Okay, so this is the mess I'm bring overseas. Let's get started on packing! 

First, here is my super cute toiletries bag (I found it for $1.50 at a yard sale)~ The symphony chaperons recommended that we use the 3-1-1 rule (which is basically states only having 3.4 ounce bottles in 1 quart-sized bag (just shove as many bottles as you can in that bag) with only one bag per flyer) and we could transfer our toiletries into another bag after the flight.
I didn't want to bother with wearing/bringing makeup so I didn't bring any products. This face wants to be free and in the nude.  But what I managed to fit in my quart-sized bag was:
I wish that I didn't bring shampoo and conditioner because we stayed at 7 different hotels and each had its own shampoo and conditioner (which I ended up taking home because it was free). Other than that, everything lasted me and I actually used all of the items rather them not be used and take up space in my suitcase. Tip: it was incredibly windy and rainy and misty so the weather chapped my face and lips a lot, so make sure to bring moisturizer.

My Birthday!

Hey, everyone!  Sorry for posting for a while, but I mean, Spring Break happened and my local youth symphony group went to England and I had a Forensics State competition and I failed a math test...  Anyway, yesterday, May 12 was my birthday and now I am 15 years old!  Thank you to everyone for all the birthday gifts and wishes; I appreciate all of them and they made my year! 

Started out my day with a new Anne Klein watch from my mother and some cute nails from Sally Hansen's Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips in "Polka Party." 

A cute little shot featuring the garden with my holographic shoes from JCPennies.

A cute little family photo with me and my bro. Look at this pie. It's chocolate.
