Quickie but a Goodie

Ever have those mornings where you're in a rush to get out the door? You too? All the time? Outfit formulas make getting ready super easy. Mine tends to be a t-shirt, skirt, and jacket. Casual yet polished. A little red lipstick and mascara makes you look awake and ready to go!

 Doctor Who shirt is amazing because Doctor Who is amazing.

 Silly moments. The wind was messing with my hair so I just embraced it :)

 You can really see my red hair in this light!

My photographer thinks she's amusing. But she's pretty awesome. Considering we shot these photos in about 15 minutes with my camera at 2% battery, I think it turned out pretty good!

Things I've Been Loving

Hey guys! I've been a little caught up in work this week, so I don't have anything super insightful to bring to you. I thought I would share my favorite things lately. If I get enough response, I'll make this into a series :)

1. Korrasami!!!
If you didn't know already, I am a huge nerd and fan girl. I've been following the Avatar: The Last Airbender series since about the 3rd or 4th episode when I was 11. In the past few years, the creators have made a spin off called The Legend of Korra. There was one ship no one thought would be canon until the last season: Korrasami. This pairs the two friends, Korra and Asami, in a lesbian ship. The creators have confirmed that it is canon! They remind me so much of me and my girlfriend and we're gonna cosplay as them sometime! (Sorry if my fan girl just spewed everywhere. Also, if you're a Makorra shipper, I'm sorry for the more obnoxious Korrasami fans.)

DIY Friday: Petroleum Jelly Wonders

Most of you probably know that petroleum jelly (commonly known as Vaseline, but that's a brand) can be used to make lip gloss if you mix in broken eye shadow or Kool-Aid. But what else can it be used for? I've compiled a list for you guys to check out over the weekend!

1. Highlighter. Lightly apply on your cheek bones and anywhere else you would normally highlight for a natural glow!

2. Removing makeup and restoring lashes. Did you know that applying mascara can actually cause your eyelashes to be more brittle and more likely to break or fall out? If nothing else motivates you to go makeup free for a day and take off your makeup at night, I don't know what will! Applying petroleum jelly to your eyelashes at night can help remove makeup and make them grow.

3. Moisturizer. You may know this one, but it's a great moisturizer. Just glide it over your lips, hands, or feet and you're good to go!

Special Feature: Purple

Hey guys! So I didn't do a post Friday because I was working on this! I want some feedback because I want to do something like this once a month. If you guys like it, I might try to do it more often. If you have ideas for in the future, comment below!

Room Tour! (Picture heavy)

This is beyond overdue. I said I was gonna do it at the beginning of the year. Then I got sick and never finished unpacking. Everything was always a mess. I always had an excuse not to do it. Well in the few days after I moved back in before class started, I finally finished unpacking and put everything away and decorated and all that. Finally I can give you a room tour!

What you see when you walk in. Yes, that is a hanging monkey. His name is Sassafrass and his battery died so he shall forever hang from the fan. Excuse me and my roommates dark sense of humor.

I'm a Tulle

I will tell you right now, as much as I love the aesthetic aspect of this tulle skirt, it's A LOT of fabric. I am always having to straighten it out so the layers don't get bunched together as the tulle likes to do that. But it looks fantastic! Haha! I hope you guys are getting back in the swing of things with work and school.

These rocks at my school are painted at least once every year by freshmen if not 4 or 5 times by other groups! It's a neat little tradition we have. I meant to get a picture of a chip of the paint with all the layers but it was so cold I ran inside ASAP!

2015 Resolutions

Reflecting on the past year, I've had some realizations about myself that I certainly need to improve in 2015, and I thought I'd share them with you guys.

1. Blog three times a week. When I started this blog, I was blogging three times a week. Now I'm lucky if I get out a post every few. I know I have the time in my day, I just have been letting myself slip because I argue to myself that "other things are more important. I resolve to make time for blogging. And on that note...

DIY Friday: Tulle Skirt

After all the holidays, I was wanting a little wardrobe update. I've seen all these bloggers with tulle skirts and it's left me lusting for one. I found this tutorial for making one, and it's not that difficult. It takes a few hours of cutting out fabric and some minimal sewing skills but it makes for a fun Saturday afternoon project!
