Hello Everyone!!!!!!!!!!! I hope you all are having a great time over the holidays. Holy smokes i haven't updated my blog since August which is yikes, uh five months ago, this year has been a bit crazy but over winter break i have been working on my blog since i really want to get back into it. I made a little list to summarize a few things that happened since i last updated:

What I Have Been Up To
  • I moved three hours away from home into my very own apartment and started university at the ripe old age of twenty :)
  • Went to buy a new cellphone for school and met my now-boyfriend who sold the phone to me lol
  • Met lots and lots of new people and made some great friends at uni
  • My first apartment then got a leak in mid October and half the kitchen ceiling come apart making me homeless for more than a month 
  • Had a wonderful friend who let me sleep on dorm floor for three weeks before i went home for two weeks
  • Half of my clothes got thrown out since they were ruined from my apartment (totally devastating!!)
  • Got really sick at the end of November and it turned out to be mono (sooooooooooooo not cool) still not feeling the best even now my sore throat keeps returning
  • Rediscovered my love for makeup tutorials on youtube and have developed a slight addiction to buying cosmetics now
  • Moved into my new apartment which i love immensely for many reasons, especially since it is right on the bus route :)
  • My grandpa died rather suddenly at the beginning of December :(:(
  • Barely survived midterms and finals last week but school is now done until January 7th so freakin excited
  • Been rewatching One Tree Hill and have gone through seasons 3,4 and am now on season 6
And that pretty much sums it all up!! I haven't been able to get photoshop on my new laptop so i edited these photos a little differently then i used to before, so bare with me i need to get that up and running. I found this vest in the back of my closet and i don't think i have ever worn it before. I remember buying it on a Value Village trip when everything was 50% off which was awesome  so it was about seven dollars. I wanted a fur vest for literally years but i always thought this one was a little short on me (ugh tall girl problems, eye roll) but i don't think it looks so bad now. The only problem with vests are they are to bulky to get under a winter coat but i think in March or April when it gets warmer i will wear it more, its definitely coming back to school with me. So since i went to uni my style has considerably gone down hill and i am embarrassed to admit there were a few times i wore jogging pants to early morning class, horrible i know lol. My style has changed considerably i wear jeans ALOT but i am hoping by getting back into blogging i will start to amp up the style factor a bit more, although i will always love my school hoodie. But I have realized one thing you definitely can make jeans/ pants look stylish which i never really thought before. 


So over the last year or so i have progressively got more obsessed with makeup and now its like a full fledged addiction. I absolutely love watching makeup tutorials on youtube, not gonna lie i often get up, make breakfast and start watching them first thing in the morning. So i think i will start blogging about that as well and do hauls/ reviews of drugstore stuff since i know i definitely love to read that those. I tried out NYC Sunny Bronzer down below and i hated it when i first bought it but holy crap do i love it now, it just looked so awesome yesterday when i took these photos. I actually looked somewhat tan which is a miracle considering how pale i am in the winter. Have a great day everyone and a awesome New Years Eve!!!!

P.S I also changed my blog name a bit, i figured it was time for a change and i like it alot better :)
