Life Update

Life Update

I have not posted in so long! Life got kind of crazy this past month and I just needed to focus on all of that instead of stressing about getting a blog up. First, new thing in my life is that I finished the semester. I did well on all my finals and am satisfied with all my grades. Only two more classes and then I’m done with my bachelor’s degree in forensic science. Seeing all my friends graduate this past month has made me so excited to graduate in the fall. Next thing that has happened is that I moved! I have been living on my college campus the whole time I’ve been in college. I usually go home for the summer but last summer I stayed. I have officially moved into an off-campus apartment with one of my best friends. Moving was kind of crazy but I’m pretty much all settled in now. The last thing that happened is that I’ve started is working full time. My current job offered me a full-time position which was perfect timing. It’s been a little tough just because My hours suddenly doubled and I’m not used to that. Hopefully this Saturday I will start posting normally again. I’m excited for this summer and all my goals.

August Favorites 2016

August Favorites 2016

*sorry for no pictures this month*

Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon- This was one of the Sephora birthday gifts this year so it’s a pretty small size. I have been loving this product, though. It glides on so easily and is really easy to fix if mistakes are made. The full size is $25 and I might actually purchase the full size. This eyeliner comes in a lot of different colors and you can check it out here.

Real Techniques Makeup Sponge- I am on a bit of a small budget and I just can’t bring myself to spend $20 on the beauty blender. When I do get to splurge and buy a high-end product, I don’t want it to be a beauty sponge. There’s some debate on whether this sponge is actually a dupe for the beauty blender. Personally, I think the real techniques sponge applies my makeup very well. One of these days I am going to try the beauty blender so I can see the real deal. For now, this $6 sponge will work for me.

Peaches and Nectarines- I love summer because these stone fruits are my favorite fruits of all time. I eat one every single day. They are the most perfect fruit in the world. Fall is another amazing season but I will be sad to see stone fruits go.

Rimmel Retro Glam Mascara- I picked this mascara up because I’ve heard it’s a dupe for the better than sex mascara. I have no idea if that is true. Eventually, I’ll get the too faced one and pit them against each other. For right now I really like this mascara. The wand is a bit big but I like how it applies to my lashes.

Favorite Song- Closer by The Chainsmokers and Halsey (Although the VMA performance was not very good.)

Favorite Show- Bob’s Burgers. I already love this show but have been watching it again.
