College: Halfway Through The Semester

Hi, everyone! I’ve reached over the halfway point of my first semester in college. These past 9 weeks actually went by really fast, but I miss high school haha. I’m still procrastinating, like I should be studying for my Intro to Interpersonal Communication test right now lol. I also actually gained some weight the first week. It was so bad. My weight didn’t really change, but I could tell I gained some weight when I looked in the mirror. I’ve been so lazy and procrastinating all my assignments, so I stopped making meal preps and have been extremely lazy when it comes to working out. But, other than that, the college experience has been just okay. I just wanted to talk about little things that’s happened since school started and write about the goals I have for the rest of my first semester. Continue reading if you’re interested. I will also be talking about upcoming posts at the end.

I haven’t been really productive, academically and health/fitness-wise, the first half of the semester, so here are a few goals I have for myself:
  • Study a couple days prior to a quiz/text/exam instead of studying the night before.
  • Actually read the textbook. LOL.
  • Make meal preps every Sunday for the whole week and make sure to go grocery shopping for everything I need for the week.
  • Keep my room and workspace constantly clean.
  • Have a better sleeping schedule.
  • Get a job.
  • Find out what to do to transfer for next Fall semester.

I have done a few things during the semester though:
  • I’ve changed my hair color like 4 times already. I’m back with red which I’m very happy with. I always end up going back to my red hair. I’m really happy with my upkeep of my ombre as well. I’ve had an ombre for over 3 years now. I LOVE it when someone asks me for advice on hair too!
  • I’m usually someone who wears tank tops in the fall and winter because I don’t like long sleeves, but lately I’ve been stocking up on long sleeves and sweaters. I even got 3 pairs of combat boots within one month..
  • I have actually studied for my classes, even though it’s the night before.

I know this has been kind of a lengthy post, so thank you if you read it.

Let me know in the comments if you..
  • have any goals you’ve recently set?
  • would want me to make a post on a collective clothing clothing haul?
  • have something you want me to make a post about?

Mu upcoming posts will be about:
  • Marshall’s Mini Haul/Review
  • My 18th Birthday - 10/29
  • Halloween 2014
  • My Daily School Makeup Routine
  • Cook With Me pt. IV

I plan on being more active with this blog, so I hope you continue to check/read my blog and share with others.

Nails: Lavender + Silver

Hello, everyone. I'm usually really lazy when it comes to painting my nails, but I finally got around to it on Sunday. I ended up really liking how it looked so I decided to paint my nails more often.

These are the three nail polishes I used.

  • The lavender one is called "crowded" and I got that from Urban Outfitters as one of my Christmas presents from my boyfriend two years ago.
  • The silver one is called "DS radiance" from OPI.
  • The top coat is the "Insta-Dri" from Sally Hansen, which I think my mom got at Target. I'm sure you could find them anywhere.
I really like the lavender color for the winter. The top coat kind of makes it look a more darker pastel. The silver one applies so smoothly I love it. The top coat works really well and it kind of makes my nails look like they are gel.

Thanks for reading! Let me know what you guys think of these colors.

Lush Review: Angels on Bare Skin

Hi, everyone! I'm here with another Lush review I've been meaning to do for months. This was another one of my gifts from my two-and-a-half year anniversary with my boyfriend back in May. I've used this a few times and liked it, so it's time I shared with you guys. Let's get started!

I've used this about 3-4 times now and I still have that much left.
This product contains ground almonds, kaolin, lavender oil, rose absolute and some other stuff. It has little lavender flowers in it and it's so cute. This product is a face and body cleanser. You take some in your hand, mix a little water with it so it's like a clay paste, and then massage it onto your face and body. Afterwards, just rinse it off and that's it. 

This is what it looks like on my face lol.
This lavender scent makes me feel calm. This is great to use on a relaxing night for yourself. This product is supposed to leave your skin fresh, soft and perfectly balanced. It definitely makes my skin feel soft afterwards and the chamomile blue oil helps with any redness, so I think this is great for the upcoming fall and winter.

Thanks for reading and I hope you have a good day!
