What I got for Christmas 2014
 First off, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!! whoooooooo!!
Secondly, I don't know about you but one of my favorite holiday activities is to watch "What I got for Christmas" videos. I'm such a hard core fan of them that I even watch them in the summer. I know, super lame. I even love the blog ones. I'm just super nosey and I love knowing what other people got. So I thought it would be fun to do the same on my blog. I didn't want to show everything so I choose some of my favorite presents.
Also I didn't really want to do a disclaimer because honestly who isn't grateful for everything they have in their lives and I know that hearing another disclaimer is just boring.  So without further adieu...   


Literally the cupcake beanie and the reindeer spatula are my absolute favorites.

P.s.- If you did a "What I got for Christmas" post on your blog/Youtube channel please, please, please leave a link in the comment section!!! I loved to see it!

My Christmas in polaroids
Hey guys, Happy New Year! I hope you had a Merry Christmas and had a lot of fun and food. 
I didn't really know what kind of post I wanted to publish. I've had such a fun week that I wasn't able to pick a good post to show it. So, since I had gotten a polaroid over Christmas I thought it would be cool to show them.
Most of them are from Christmas but some of them are not. Either way I hope you enjoy.

The non polaroids...

Someday Summary

It was my 19th birthday on Monday and I celebrated with my family and friends, eating ramen, having birthday cake, and opening presents. It was awesome. 

I found out my dog hates the sound of my kitchen aid and likes to sleep on my clean clothes. 

School is FINALLY over for the semester! Whoop whoop! Time to stay in bed and hibernate. I'm practicing my skill to stay in bed for prolong periods of time. Its takes a lot of endurance, let me tell ya. 

I literally cannot wait for Christmas. Family. Food. Presents. And most important regaining my championship title in Monopoly. 

I have been appreciating those people who practically use all the electricity in the neighborhood for their decoration because they know what's up. 

Last but not least, I'm going to start posting more food/baking recipes in here. I hope you guys don't mind. :) 

Oh and Merry Christmas Eve!!!

What I'm currently burning...

Since it gets darker a lot sooner, my favorite thing to do is to light my tree and burn Fresh Balsam because it smells exactly like Christmas trees. It isn't the prettiest of all the candles but it is the only candle that is half empty and diminishing as I type. 

I am also currently loving Vanilla Bean Noel and I now understand why everyone else loves it so much. It smells like something sweet with a little hint of vanilla. It kinda reminds me of Christmas sugar cookies...My nose maybe off on that BUT it does smell like something sweet. Haha 

  Next up is Winter Candy Apple. I haven't burned this one yet so if you have it, let me know what you think of it! :)

Last but not least is Banana nutmeg bread pudding. It is by far my favorite! It's that smell that makes you forget all your problems. Haha, maybe not but it's pretty close. It doesn't smell like bananas it smells more like nutmeg and warm spices but oh my goodness it smells so freaking good. If it was edible you bet your butt I would be eating it right now. (I'm sorry for the hostility, it just smells so good!) And that packaging! Props to whoever made it! 

What are you currently burning?

Black Friday Collective Haul! 

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and you had way too many servings! I know I had way too much but that's the wonderful point. To eat too much and not be able to fit into the pants that you fit in two weeks ago.

After I had dinner I got the itis and headed to bed. I didn't want to go shopping at midnight since I knew I would be cranky. So instead I went the next morning to Union square and met my best friend for some good ole black friday shopping. 

I didn't get everything in one shot and some of it were gifts but I thought I would just throw it all in. 

American Eagle 
Red and White Striped Frilly socks 
Undies ( which you can't see and are in the bag ) 

Barnes and Nobles 
"It's Kind of A Funny Story" 

Red Christmas Blankie 
Philosophy Cupcake Body Soap 

Dylan's Candy Bar
Clodhoppers ( which are now discontinued :'( . I will savor each and every piece.)

Bite Beauty-Best Bite Remix 

Left to Right : Pomegranate, Sable, Winterberry, Rhubarb 

Clearly, they are all well loved. 
 My swatches suck! 

I think everyone has a soft spot for their first real lipstick purchase. Mine was Pomegranate from Bite beauty and not gonna lie I do have a soft spot for them. I saw some of their Christmas-y stuff online and my mom was in need of a new lip product so of course the first counter we went to was the Bite Beauty one. Swatch after swatch after endless swatch she ended up leaving happily with the Best Bite Remix. 

It comes in a really cute red Altoids-y can with a mirror. Which was a total plus when my mom couldn't wait and was putting it on outside of Sephora. It comes with four minis of their lip pencil in the shades :  Pomegranate, Sable, Rhubarb, and Winterberry. 
Pomegranate is a bold "Hollywood" red color.
Sable is a nude pink color
Winterberry is a purple-y berry color. 
Rhubarb is more of a light plum-y color. 

My mom really loves Rhubarb but I've been trying to convince her that Winterberry would look great on her since she not a red lip kinda girl. But overall she is really pleased with it. :) 

P.s - Winterberry and Sable might be limited edition!

Someday Summary 

Currently drinking a lot of apple cider and spicy chai lattes. So good. :) 

 I took off all the Halloween decorations and put out some Thanksgiving deco and some good ole potpourri.  
I literally just figured out how to spell potpourri. haha.

I'm headed up to Canada for my cousins wedding and I have no wedding attire which only means...;)

Sunset are looking so gorgeous now with it being November and all. I've even been looking forward to them every day.  

It BAKING SEASON! Lets the pies, cookies, and cakes take over me! :D Who doesn't need a little fairy magic in their lives?

Its the little things...

This week I've been trying to change my perspective on my life and how I've been living it. I know, how deep of me. haha. I know its easy to just let the downs in my life beat me up but I done with it. I've been doing a couple of small things to be happier. If you're in a similar situation or just want to do little things that make you happier hope this post helps. :)

1.) I've taking up some light exercise. I know it sounds silly for it to make me happy but its really nice when you dim the lights, light some candles, play some chill music and just stretch out your body for 15 minutes. 

2.) Usually when I'm angry I tend to be cranky and bitchy and when you're not happy its like being a bitch is the go to way. But when you're not so nice to someone that's how they are going to treat you and that pretty much sends you straight down to the dumps. So, I'm trying to get in touch with my old self and be a cheerful little butterfly again. So far so good ;)

3.) Like everyone on the planet I take things out on the people closest to me and most importantly, the ones I love. So I've been kinder to my family and friends and I'm really proud of myself for this one. 

4.) I've been working on my language. Cursing comes so naturally to me that its gotten pretty bad. I find cursing humorous but when things start to heated up its like curse words are all I have in my back pocket, which is honestly super pathetic of me. But anyway I want to have more respect for myself  because that's where it all starts, right? 

5.) The final one that I've been doing are things that I enjoy doing because I just do. It sounds weird but it's pretty simple really, just because you're not in a complete state of full-time happiness doesn't mean that you cant have a little piece of it either. Do something you love doing just because.  

I really hope that at-least one person reads this and I've helped you in the simplest way.

Sephora Newbie 

My first ever Sephora purchase 
My bottom lip has the watermelon lip tint while my top lip has nothing .

I know, I know. I'm super late. I promise I haven't been living under a rock for four years not knowing what the naked pallet was. I did, I just never really cared for makeup that much when it first came out. In my defense I was only about 13-14 when it came out. 
But now its like every time I step into Sephora I just gravitate towards the Urban Decay section.  
They're all really gorgeous,which is why I stood in Sephora like a creep for an hour trying to pick which one would be best for my skin tone. I eventually settled on the Naked 2 because it wasn't too dark and wasn't pink. Don't get me wrong I like pink but just not for everyday makeup wear. 
I also picked up a Bite Beauty Lip Tint in the shade Watermelon. This has been my everyday lip product and I have been loving it! It's been one of my most loved item so far. It tints my lips just a slight bit pink and its super moisturizing. I kinda want to try out the other tints. *Mischievous smile*

Sick Day Essentials 

I've had the cold for about a week now and I think its almost done with me. I've been feeling a lot better now and I wanted to share some of my sick day essentials that helped me fight off my nasty cold. 

The first one is tea! I love the honey and lemon combo. Its slightly tart, slightly sweet and so so soothing. 

Chicken noodle soup, Chicken noodle soup with the soda on the side. I love the Lipton instant ones with extra pasta or maybe some potatoes.  So yummyy!!

Next up is cough drops! I always get the ones that taste like candy and not the ones that are so strong that they make you want to cry. But this weekend I picked up the Ricola Lemon Mint ones and I'm loving them. They're not super strong and still taste really good. 

Number Four, lip balm and face cream!  Keep yourself hydrated and moisturized when you're sick. You'll feel a whole lot better!

 Sweets, sweets, and more sweets! I know this one probably isn't good for you and you probably shouldn't do it. But doesn't a good pumpkin cupcake with maple cinnamon frosting make your soul feel better. (P.s. I got the recipe from this lovely blog and its amazing!) 

The last one is down time. And I mean lots and lots and LOTS of down time. My favorite down time activities are sleeping, reading, and watching YouTube. Recently I saw the trailer for the Best Of Me, so I decided to reread the book and can I just say, "Damn, Dawson".  

That's it for my sick day essentials and if you're sick I hope you feel way better soon!

My five favorite things about Fall

To me Fall is the beginning of all things amazing. It starts getting colder and fairy lights start popping up everywhere. It's so cute and festive! So to kick off the Fall spirit here are my 5 favorite things about Fall.

1.) Hot drinks- Who doesn't freakin' love a good ole hot cocoa? Some whip, some marsh, some mellow, ya feel? haha. 

2.)Sweater and leggings- There' s nothing better than wearing clothes with a little wiggle room. 

3.)The color Burgundy- Yes, just yes. Khloe Kardashian and burgandy lips anyone? 

4.)Rain- I know this is a weird one but I love the sound and smell of rain. I could just stay in my bed all day and i'll be okay because of the rain. 

5.)SWEETS!- Cookies, chocolate, and candy GALOREEE!! Need I say more. 

🍂 What are some of your Fall favorites? 🍂

Viva La Juicy 

As a kid I ALWAYS wanted a juicy couture bag or keychain or anything. I was obsessed. I love the fluffy rectangular bags with the massive diamond ring on the side that I never got. Which actually worked out well cause I grew out of it... or so I thought. 

I was at Costco getting my overwhelmingly massive amounts of food for practically the rest of the year when I spotted the Viva La Juicy fragrance. I stopped did a double take and stood there for 10 minutes trying to figure out what it was doing in a Costco. ( If I would have gotten it on film it would have been hilarious.)

I grabbed it, walked away, dropped it in my cart, and we headed for checkout. Next thing you know, the fire alarms go off and we all have to evacuate because a lady decided to smoke in the bathroom. What a genius, I swear. Anyway, about an hour later I break open the plastic and sniff the floral-y candy goodness to my hearts content. 

When I mean to my hearts content, I mean that I still keep it in the packaging and carry it in my bag. So whenever I'm grumpy I whip it out and smell it, or even weirder I'll shove my nose into my sweater and sniff it. I pretty much embarrass everyone around me. haha
