December Favorites


Long time, no post, eh?? Seeing as this is actually my first post of 2016 (oops), I’d like to wish everyone a happy new year and I hope the holiday season was good to you all! Between Christmas and my family vacation and school starting back up again, I lost track of time and blog posts, but hopefully I’m back for good. Being that last month was the biggest shopping month of the year, I seem to have found quite a few new gems that I just can’t seem to get enough of. And now that I’m back from my little hiatus, I just couldn’t wait to share them!

Dolce & Gabbana

Light Blue

Man oh man, my love for this perfume started maybe…last summer?? Yeah, it’s been forever. I’m not one to splurge on perfume for myself, but I’ve never been more keen on a scent before until I got a whiff of this baby. My mom graciously gifted me with this for Christmas and I was ecstatic. I won’t even being to attempt to describe it, but the notes listed on Sephora’s website are sicilian citron, bluebell, granny smith apple, jasmine sambac, bamboo, white rose, cedarwood, amber, and musk. So think that nice clean smell of a laundry room with a citrus-y, apple-y candle going and a little hint of a woodsy smell in the air. Yeah, I should leave that to the professionals. Anywho, I’ve obviously worn it everyday since I got it, but I do use it sparingly because I’m too afraid of being without it now haha.

NYX Brow Mascara

Shade: Espresso

NYX Matte Lipstick

Shade: Euro Trash

My love for brownish pink toned nude lips continues with this one. I only bought it because I had a coupon and it was half off but it’s worth way more than I even paid for it. I’ve worn it almost everyday since I bought it. I love how it wears so evenly. I don’t have to worry about my lipstick coming off in the middle and remaining on the outline of my lips. It just leaves a nice stain that lasts all day. I will warn though, the packaging isn’t the greatest so I’d avoid it for travel. But it’s a great everyday neutral, because, ya know, the 7 I already had just wasn’t enough.

Alice in Wonderland Socks

My feet are forever cold, even in the summer. So I wear socks pretty much 24/7, even too bed. Some of my favorite socks are from Hot Topic just because they’re thin and so soft. Plus they come in the cutest themes. I already have Harry Potter and The Little Mermaid, so I figured I’d add to my collection with these from Alice in Wonderland. And I got the pack on sale for $3!

Stuck in Love

I’m not one for chick flicks but every now and then I get in the mood for a nice RomCom. I was getting ready to do some serious Christmas gift wrapping and decided to put this on in the background. And then I got way to interested in it and stopped wrapping presents. It’s such a cute mavie but not super cliche. I was even almost to tears at one point. Almost. I’d seriously recommend it if you haven’t stumbled across it yet.

Switched at Birth

Um so I used to be really into this show when it first aired a couple years ago, but then stopped watching it around the second season for who knows what reason. I decided to play it for background ambient noise more or less last month, and then caught myself staying up late to finish just one more episode. I got to where I couldn’t wait to watch it. It’s about two girls who were switched in a hospital the day they were born, and raised by completely opposite parents. One was brought up extremely rich, and the other poor on the bad side of town hundreds of miles away. The latter girl became sick at age 3 and ended up completely deaf. Now each of them attempt to become one interracial, deaf and hearing, rich and poor family. You just can’t help but get so attached to each of the characters. Like I was ready to drop out of college and fly to Mexico to help fit young deaf children for hearing aids. Okay, maybe not that much, but I’m super interested in sign language now, and I’m determined to learn it. Sadly, I’m all caught up to the fourth season now (which is all on Netflix btw!), and I’ll have to deal with these withdrawals until the fifth premieres in April.
