Weekend Shenanigans

Monday, March 25, 2013

I hope everyone had a good weekend!

I'm linking up with Sami for Weekend Shenanigans.

one. Friday night I watched Perks Of Being A Wallflower. I cried. I never read the book so I don't know how it compares but the movie was so good!

two.  Saturday I headed to Target for two things: a new water bottle & headphones. I left w/ only those things. There's a first time for everything!

three.  Lunch on Saturday. YUM.

four. Saturday night a couple girls & I went to go paint pottery. I haven't done it since I was like 6. It was so relaxing & I had so much fun!

five. my new addiction y'all. discovered these at Whole Foods. they have so many different kids but the Lemon Poppyseed is by far my favs.

six. Sunday was spent studying.  Sunday was spent being lazy all day & then cramming homework in at night.

That was my weekend! What did you do this weekend?!

The Little Things

Friday, March 22, 2013

I needed a break yesterday. I was on the verge of a complete meltdown.
I needed me time. So what did I do? I took the day off and watched lots of Gilmore Girl episodes and went to get froyo with my sister of course. Perfect day!

I am linking up with Lauren for High Five For Friday.
It was hard to come up with Five this week but thinking of them made me appreciate the little things this week!

one. Thursday afternoon date with my sister for froyo. yumm.

two. Spoiled myself this week and went to Ulta for the UD Naked Basic palette.

three. look over and see this two little nuggets lovin' on each other

four. I am obsessed with this show and almost done with season 2. I watch at least one episode every night.

five.  (not pictured) I worked out 5/7 days this week. I'm pretty freaking proud of myself.

What were some of your highs this week?

I am also thinking about doing a Q&A post next week so leave me some questions!

Happy Friday pretties!

Summer Lovin'

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

I woke up this morning feeling very un-inspired & un-motivated. This weather isn't helping either. One day it is 75 degrees and I'm wearing shorts and flip flops and the next its 45 degrees and I'm back to wearing yoga pants and sweatshirts. What gives mother nature..what gives?!

I'm linking up with Michelle for Oh, How Pinteresting.

Todays theme: Summer
Because, lets face it..we are all ready for it to be here.

How many days till Summer?!

Beauty Blender

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

Fact: I will never use another foundation brush again.

I recently discovered the beauty blender and it has changed my life y'all. I have been debating on buying it for months and finally decided to just splurge and get it. I am so glad I did.

The best way to use the beauty blender is to first get it wet and squeeze out the excess water. Instead of using a foundation brush use the beauty blender to blend in all your foundation. Blending your foundation with the wet sponge makes your face look flawless. I use the smaller side of the blender to blend in my concealer and love the clean look it gives.

I bought my beauty blender online at Sephora and after reading many reviews decided to get the cleanser for it as well. I am so glad I did! To see the difference I washed it once with baby shampoo and it didn't even compare to the blender cleanser. If you are going to spend the money on the blender I would invest in the cleanser as well.

The beauty blender and the cleanser together retail for about $35.

Weekend Update

Monday, March 18, 2013

Happy Monday! Because I am tired and have a massive amount of studying to do.. lets cut to the chase.

I am linking up with Sami for Weekend Shenanigans!

Friday. Girls day: nails & shopping! Is there anything better?! I don't think so. I decided on a hot pink gel manicure and I loveee it.

Saturday. Round two of the siblings birthday celebration. We went and saw Oz the great & powerful. I'd give it a 8/10 it was good but it was a little slow at the beginning and its a fairly long movie. Then we decided to play putt putt because it was sooo nice out! For the record I suck & I came in last place.

Sunday. Yesterday was full of lots of Sunday snuggles and studying. boooring.

Have a great day!

What I'm Loving

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

I have been loving quite a few things lately. I thought why not share them with y'all.
But before I get on with that lets have a moment of silence for my girl Lindsey. I'm so bitter Sean didn't choose her. I give her props for leaving with class though because I would have pushed his butt into that pond. I mean how do you tell her you love her when you just dumped her?!

Moving on to what I'm loving..

Nashville/Once Upon A Time/Downton Abbey
I am freaking obsessed with these shows. like I cannot get enough.

Luke Bryan SB CD
No words y'all. If you haven't heard it yet you are missing out. Here is a little preview of what your missing.

Speaking of SB..
19 days!!!! I have a late SB. I know a lot of people who are on SB this week and I'm a little jealous.

While we are on the topic of vacation..
75 days till I am sailing away on a cruise!

Cousins live in GA now.
I am super excited to hang out with them. We haven't lived by family in 8+ years.

Bath & Body Works Candles
I spend way to much money on candles but I love them. It smells like Spring/Summer everywhere in my house.

Spring Forward
Even though I am dead when I wake up in the morning now I love that it stays lighter out longer.

It is finally Spring! It is in the 60/70s all week!

Gelous Advanced Nail Gel Coat
Someone shared this with me last week and I have been loving it ever since. I use it as a base/top coat and you don't have to use a UV light!

Let me know what you're loving! I love finding out about new shows, music, & products.

Weekend Update

Monday, March 11, 2013

The weekend went by way to fast for my liking. Luckily, I am looking forward to this weeks events.
But, before we start the week lets recap my weekend shall we? I am linking up with Sami for Weekend Shenanigans.
one. I stayed home Friday night & my sister brought me Steak N Shake which I haven't had in forever!
two. I finished Season 1 of Dowton Abbey & started season 2 of Once Upon A Time. I have to say I am midly obsessed with both of those shows.
three. Woke up Saturday morning to a group message to me, my mom, and sister from my dad. No wonder I am a daddys girl.
four. found this gem at TjMaxx & to say I am in love is an understatement
five. It was 70 degrees on Sunday & I enjoyed every minute of it
six. my cousins finally moved in to their new place this weekend so my sister & I made them cupcakes.
What did y'all get into this weekend? 

Boho Gold & A Pop Of Color

Friday, March 8, 2013

Happy Friday lovies! I am so glad this week is over.. its been a long one.
I'm looking forward to the almost 70 degree weather we are supposed to be having this weekend.
I don't know about you but I am so ready for Spring. 

Today I am linking up with Tara from Fabulous But Evil for The Nail Files.
At the beginning of the week I saw a cute & fun manicure on Instagram I was lusting over. Here is my take on it!

Maybelline Boho Gold & Essie (i don't know the color it came off)

In the picture the accent nail is coming off more red but it is actually more pink/orange in person.

In case you missed it here is what went on around here this week:
Tuesday I caught y'all up on a bit of my life with what I am currently loving/doing.
Wednesday was all about hair.
Thursday I shared with you some of my recent Instagram pictures. 

If you want to keep up with me through out the weekend..
make sure to follow me on Twitter & Instagram

Have a great weekend!
