I recently stopped by Bath & Body Works because I hear from a friend they were having a sale.
and my perfumery has running low low low.
First of all, a great sale.
buy 3 signature colletion, get 3 free. and their lip products, buy 2 get 1 free.
I spent too much money, but I smell delicious.
I got lotion, body wash, and misting spray in two different scents.
First, french lavender & honey. im obsessed with the packaging.
I think it's so delicate and pretty.
Whats it like you ask? Well as put by Bath & Body Works... Experience the charming south of France and gorgeous sunswept fields of lavender. This effortlessly beautiful scent is a fresh blend of flowering French lavender, lily of the valley and nectarine de Provence warmed with sunkissed honey and white oak musk.
Second, Cashmere glow. I love this scent. It' a lot more musky than the previous, and makes me feel sophisticated...like I should be wearing jewels and high heels.
which I don't do...... like ever, but I think smelling that way is nice.
I don't love this packing as much, mostly cause im not into jewels, or glitter & sparkles...but it smells so yummy.
Cashmere glow fragrance wraps you in comforting warmth and ultimate luxury. This luxurious scent is a warm blend of golden peach, exotic berries and glowing lily petals indulged with shimmering vanilla and cashmere musk.
Last but not least lips. I bought two mentha lip glosses and a rose salve.
The packaging on that salve makes my heart happy. like real happy.
like it's one of those things that I'm like "I want people to see me with this so they think I'm cute!"
aaannnndddd you can use it for face, lips, cuticle, knees, elbows. im obsessed.
I always used to get this lip gloss in middle school, and I thought I'd try it out again.
I got vanilla mint, and ultra mentha.
The mentha helps your breath smell fresh, and its clear which I love, no glitter which I love.
Basically I'm way too happy with all my purchases.
I would recommend you to stop by, they have lots of yummy scents and deals.
I was reading secret life of bee a little bit ago, and I discovered every time I read her blog I'm all like "I want to be friends with her." As I read her blog I feel like I'm getting to know her, and I don't think my blog is like that. Most likely cause I'm awkward and try and keep most of the world from seeing that, so I thought I'd start out small. (slowly but surely, you'll all know how weird I am, and we'll be friends) So, what I keep in my purse.* cause that says a lot about me? correct me if I'm wrong.
*this post was prompted by Credit Card Insider, a great place to go if you're a child like me and need to be educated on how credit cards, credit, and debt work.
I don't keep a lot of things in my purse. Mostly because I'm doing this whole "go to school 5 days a week" thing so I'm always carrying a backpack. but my purse holds my easy access go to essentials.
1. My wallet. I don't need nothing fancy which I find most wallets are, so this was like my dream. I got it at target and I'm obsessed. Easy access to my cards? but a cute little strap to hold them in. one big zip up pocket for cash, coin, and stamp cards to jamba and cafe rio.
check out that 1, rollin in the dough man.
2. Color burst lip butter. I love them. A great combo of sheer, and color, and moisture. I'm a fan. I use fig jam, slightly brown. It's beautiful, get it.
3. EOS Chapstick, because I'm addicted to great chapstick. As you can see mine has much wear and tear.
4. Headphones. Walking around campus, I always listen to music, so I need those babies ready to go. Easy access. It's gotten to the point if I'm walking and not listening to music I'm like "What's happening right now...? why is it so quiet?" it's a problem, but not one I'm concerned enough to fix.
the little clicker thing makes my life easy, cause i don't have to pull out my iphone to change the song.
thanks to who invented that.
5. Gum. I love chewing gum, orbit's my fav. I also don't have a boyfriend so I gotta keep that breath fresh.
welp, thats all. if you have a purse, and things in it. post about it & share with me.
I got difficult hair. Not as difficult as it could be, but difficult none the less.
It's short, curly, frizzy. Not an equation for easy hair days.
disclaimer: i'm not a hair stylist, just a girl with curly hair.
Basic curl tips I live by:
-Don't use shampoo often. (2-3 times a week) As my hair's a bit dry, stripping it of natural oils isn't a great idea.
-Pat dry with a cotton tee, instead of a wrapping it up with a towel. This will help prevent breakage and frizz
-Argan oil, Argan oil, Argan oil & blow out serum. I'm a big holistix fan. (or Moroccan oil.) Helps prevent breakage and frizz, protects from heat. Increases shine. and is amazing.
I use two tools when I style my hair curly; a diffuser and a very thin straightner.
the thinner the straighter, the tighter curls you can m(f)ake.
you can see how little it is in my hand
Here's my hair after I've blow dried it.
It's all over the place I got a lot of pieces on top that stay straight or go real frizzy.
but as you can see a lot of my hair is real curly.
With my little straightener I can take frizzy pieces and put the curly back in.
I find use the little straightener helps me smooth out frizz,
and get a bit more control over the style and shape of my hair.
I love when clouds look like paintings, and when the sky is more than blue. Life has been teaching me a lot about priorities, and happiness. I need to get mine back in order.
I hope you had a good weekend and that your Monday is good too.
(if you don't get that cloudy with a chance of meatballs reference...watch it. now. and then 100x. its my favorite movie, btw.)
I always thought I had great eye sight. It was something I was fairly proud of. One day at UVU they were doing free eye screenings, as I had some time to spare, I said "Hey, I got some time to spare." I took the eye test, and failed on the last two lines. Failed miserably.
I took the time to go to the eye doctor to find that I'm very much near sighted. (things far are super blurry.)
I always just thought they were blurry because they were far. Anyways, my glasses came in yesterday and I've been asked multiple times if they are real. (I guess I have that, I would wear fake glasses vibe. Probably because I do have fake glasses.)
I'd like to take this opportunity to show you 1 pair of my glasses (I have two). And some better shots of my new hair color. If you want to see how dark it was before click here.
also i just realized how dark my skin is compared to the link above...thannnnkkkk you san deigo.
Probably more than any human should really. My favorite grilled cheese sandwiches are made by my mom, sonic, chilli's, and zupas. I usually go to zupas when I'm feeling like being gourmet in an american way.
However being a poor college student zupas is not always an option so I make a copy cat at home.
Ingridents: Bread, Muenster cheese, Colby jack cheese, Pesto seasoning, and mayonnaise if you wish.
(Probably because I live in Utah.) I put mayonnaise on both sides of my bread and put the pesto on one side and colby jack on the other. Mostly to prevent the cheese from flying when I put the pieces together.
and the muenster and squish it all together.
Here's the tough part. Cook your grilled cheese at a low heat and be patient while each side gets slightly browned. (More than not, I put my heat too high and burn my bread)
Eat it and be the happiest human. Seriously my favorite meal.
Spring is my favorite season. All about a fresh start and beauty emerging from a barren winter.
I love it a lot. Anyways, I found some florals in the crafty corner of my room yesterday and a spontaneous craft flowed from my finger tips, that is this wreath. It was such a quick easy way to add some "spring fever" to my bedroom.
supplies: wire cutters, (i realize those are not wire cutters, but i couldn't find mine, so pliers are subbing in photo wise) floral tape, wire, and florals (make sure your florals are wire based). I found all of my supplies at my local hobby lobby. The 2 stems in the floral section, and the smaller flowers in the scrapbook section.
1. Lay out and bend your stems into a wreath (circle) shape.
2. With your wire, wrap your stems together and then cover them with floral tape.
3. Once you're two pieces of greenery are wired and taped, you can add your flowers! I thought the wire in my longer flowers, would be enough...but it was not! So I wrapped them in the wire that I have, and then floral tape before I added them to my wreath!
4. Add your flowers til you're happy with the look of your wreath.
