July Favorites 2017

Hello darlings! Rabbit! Rabbit! Rabbit! I’m not sure if you’ve ever heard this weird superstition, but I was told that you’re supposed to say rabbit three times on the first of every month. Try it out, I swear it’s good luck! So back to this post, I haven’t done a monthly favorites in such a lo-o-o-o-o-o-ng time. Since I’ve been trying a lot of new things out, I thought I’d give it a try.

Beauty

Face mask: I usually do a face mask once a week because a girl needs a little r-e-l-a-x-a-t-i-o-n if you ask me. I was very curious about sheet masks so I purchased this Korean face mask pack from T.J.Maxx. The box came with five different masks that make you look like a scary monster for about 25-30 minutes. The directions recommend leaving the liquid on your face after you take off the mask so that it sinks into your pours. I wasn’t about that life, so I just washed my face after. I’m a fan of this because it really rejuvenated my skin after I had sun burn. I would buy it again.

Dry Shampoo: Go buy this now. No, literally. Hop in your car and drive to CVS. You’ll thank me as soon as you smell this cucumber and green tea dry shampoo. I’ve been trying (very hard) to not wash my hair as frequently. Typically, I wash my hair every day (please don’t scream at your computer, I know it is bad). This dry shampoo has really been helping me ease into the process of being a dirty, grease ball. I highly recommend this.

Yes to: This was another product I found wandering around T.J.Maxx. Honestly, no sponsor needed, these two products have drastically changed my skin’s completion. I feel so much more confident not wearing make up because how it evened out my skin. I would buy this a thousand times.

Eyebrow Pencil: Okay, I’m about to get super personal. Are you ready for this? I’m 22-years-old and I’ve never owned an eyebrow pencil. I’ve never really felt the need to get one. I would sometimes fill out my eyebrows with light eyeshadow if I felt it was appropriate. I definitely like this it cosmetics eye pencil, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to get it. I know the make up bloggers are screaming at their computers right now. I’m sorry!

Fashion

Braceletes: I’ve been really liking this combination of bracelets. They’re really interesting because I received them all at different special times. The Tiffany peace bracelet was given to me as a high school graduation present, the middle Alex and Ani bracelet was given to me at my college graduation, and the top manta bracelet was given to me by one of my best friends for our college graduation. The mantra bracelet stating “live what you love” really speaks to me because my friends and I are all going on this path where we’re trying to find out what makes us happy as adults. It is a constant reminder that we’re not working for money but instead working for something that we really enjoy. I know many students come out of college with the mindset that they just want to make a ton of money and don’t care about actually enjoying their job. I feel the complete opposite. I just want to love what I do.

Perfume: While I was cleaning my room, I found 20+ mini perfumes. So I’ve been trying a new scent every day and so far I’m really digging these three.

Technology

Cacti phone case: Okay so obviously by the three pictures surrounding this text you might think I have a light blue-green vibe going on. You’re totally right. For the longest time I’ve been obsessed with cacti. It’s just something about how sassy they are. So when my other cacti phone case broke, I obviously had to get another. This wonderful case came in the mail yesterday. (I actually bought the bigger one by accident but thankfully amazon is w-o-n-d-e-r-f-u-l when it comes to returns.)

Personal

Project: My big project this month was redecorating my room so it would have more of an adult vibe. Since I’ll be commuting to work from my home for the next two years, I decided I needed a more responsible color. My room was this hot pink color that swallowed up the room and made it look like I was living in a candy box.  If you follow me on Pinterest, you probably saw my plethora of room decor pictures. I ended up going to home depot and collected a book worth of paint samples. I finally decided on First Rain. Expect a room tour post very soon (I’m just waiting on a mini rug to come in from amazon).

Girl on the Train: I just purchased this book from Amazon last week. I’m so excited to crack the spine open and start reading. Let me know if you’ve ever read it before!

Three songs I’m totally into right now:

Podcast I’m listening to on the way to work:

  • Anna Faris is Unqualified. For the love of all humanity: listen, cry, laugh, smile, scream… you’ll do it all listening to this podcast.

Events

Her Campus: Honestly, I’m incredibly sad I didn’t take this opportunity earlier in college. I think it is definitely an event that anyone who wants a great job/life one day should go and see.

Fourth of July: I was lucky enough to spend Fourth of July weekend at with my boyfriend. We did a good amount of fishing, laughing, and swimming. What more could you want in the summer? We also were able to check out Lavender by the Bay, which is definitely a must see attraction if you ever visit the North Fork of Long Island.

 

What do you think about these types of posts? Since I haven’t done them in so long, I’m not sure if people really want to see the weird items I’m trying out. Let me know what you think about monthly favorites, if you have any ideas on what I should post about, or even have any questions. I’d be all ears.

As always,

Nerd Haul: Amazon J.crew, and Ban.Do

Hello darlings! Am I the only one who gets excited about school supplies? Okay, it must just be a werido thing. Anyway, I bought the cutest things this week and I wanted to share it with all of your beautiful people. 

My first purchase was this Miquelrius Flexible Journal on Amazon. I’m someone who doesn’t write in order of the pages instead I kind of pick random pages and either write or doodle on them (Only in my journals though… my school notes are perfect… color coordinated and everything). Since I doodle a lot and don’t write in the lines, I needed a journal that does not have lines. Surprisingly this is a very hard thing to find. My currently journal is from Anthropology and I have been running out of pages. I didn’t really want to spend $40 on a journal so I opted for this $14 journal from amazon instead. It may not be as good of quality as the Anthropology ones, but I figured I’ll probably only using this journal for study abroad.

The next lovely purchase was a tag for my luggage when I go abroad. How cute is this J.Crew Luggage tag? Hopefully this tag will prevent my luggage getting lost over seas!

I’m officially obsessed with Ban.Do. Their stuff is just so cute! I picked up this agenda for $20 and they have two different styles if you want to check them out. I admit I took waaaaaaaay too many photographs of this agenda from Ban.Do. But could you blame me? I mean look at it:

In case you’re worried, that “2015-2016 17-Month Agenda” sticker comes off. So you open up the journal and all these lovely tabs are there to help you find the date. If you need even more help there is a little hot pink string to help bookmark the week you’re on.

I think this little tab for holiday’s is the cutest thing. There are a bunch of Holidays’ like “National Roller Coaster Day,” “National Dance Day,” and my personal favorite “National Oreo Day.” You’ll be the first one of your friends to Instagram a picture of you stuffing your face with Oreos. 

IMG_7012 The agenda also includes this sticker page where you and put them all over your agenda if you want. I’m a gross amount of excited to use these… Yes, I’m 20 and proud. 

IMG_7013 Each month starts with a page of quirky art work, two pages you can write notes on, and then a full month view. 

IMG_7018 IMG_7016IMG_7017 The week view has a lot of space for Monday-Friday and then Saturday and Sunday are a little bit smaller. Each week includes random things to do like plant a tree, donate old clothes, water ballon fight, see a fortune teller, and many more.

On the back of the agenda there is a pouch were you can put anything you want in it. I think I’m going to buy more stickers and put them in there.

I also picked up a Ban.Do charger. This is perfect for when I travel and my phone dies. I love the girly pattern and how light it is.

IMG_7025 And that’s my nerdy little haul. Hope you like all the pictures. Do you get excited for school supplies or is it just me?
