Well well well, look who it is...
Yes, I am back ladies and no you are not dreaming...lol I am embarrassed to say, but I have been ignoring this sweet little blog all of winter because believe it or not I go to school. *Sigh* oh the pressures of the struggling college student..I have been trying to balance out school and interning this semester and I have been doing a great job of it. Now that the dust is settling down a bit I thought I would catch you all up on what's been going on in my life and when to expect another delectable post from yours truly. To start off, I have been ridiculously busy; like seriously busy..literally no time for anything with school midterms piling up and interning twice a week, I had my hands full. Both are doing great however I could use a higher grade in my stats class haha..To say the least I have been busy but happy to be busy, I really feel like I am getting the hang of this thing called school and interning has definitely been an inspiration for me these days. I guess I would say I am pretty lucky...I'm very proud of what I am doing now and I'm looking forward to the future. I am quite happy at the moment and the only thing I knew that could make me even happier was to spend a little time on my blog and get back into the swing of things. So what does all this mumbo jumbo mean to you all? I guess my mantra I like to live by is "happy girls are the prettiest girls" a quote from the queen of quirky and chic Audrey Hepburn. The prettiest girls are definitely girls that are happy. The energy and the light that happy and positive attitudes exude is something you cant take away from someone. Happy girls can't help but exude a radiance that comes across as beauty to us on-lookers. My question to you is, try this mantra out this week and see if it makes a difference, reflect on your life and observe around you. I guarantee you will find some truth in this. I will try to post up another post this week hmm i'm feeling like an Audrey Hepburn themed week coming on, stay tuned!
Stay smart my pretties,

I am dying this is too cute! I love love love nutella! I am actually doing a project on nutella for my management class and we are supposed to track how the raw materials turn into the finished product. So in this case I have to track how the hazel nuts go through the process of getting cleaned and manufactured into a spread. Then I track where the palettes of nutella get shipped to like distribution centers and such, haha.. Sorry for the rambling but I am having a fun time researching about nutella and where it comes from. Hope this gave you some nuggets of wisdom! :)
*Did you know nutella is made in Canada?

My new favorite lip balm! Thanks to my sweet boyfriend for the random little something :) <3 EOS (evolution of smooth) is a company that makes products from lip balm to shaving cream. The company is wildly know for their lip balms especially. I am guilty of having almost all of their flavors haha this year they collaborated with Disney to produce a Alice in Wonderland limited edition collection. The Collection includes Pink (Watermelon Wonderland), White (Sweet Vanilla Nonsense) <--- surprisingly my fave!!, and Blue (Blueberry Potion).
Overall thoughts, I like the collection :) There was one flavor that stood out to me the most which was Sweet Vanilla Nonsense! AHHH I love it! As for the watermelon flavor, its good kinda reminds me of summer fruit a little...it might be the similar packaging lol but its definitely second place. Lastly the blueberry flavor I have not tried.. I opened it and smelled it and I guess I don't like the smell of blueberry, it smelled a little like little kids lip balm and it was quite strong. I can definitely pass on the blueberry but I will use it if I have nothing else haha Great collection, if you are going to buy it is a great deal for three for the price of $7.99, the price of a normal individually packed one would be $3.29! So awesome deal!
*Don't you just love the mickey ear grips on the lid?! HAHA too cute!!

Hello pretty girls, here comes a haul! This is the first of several so keep your eyes peeled for more to come! :) haha I stopped by Sephora a couple weeks ago and picked up the Sephora Favorites Eyeliner Sampler Kit and my birthday present from them as well! Enjoy!
What I Got:
Sephora "Draw The Line" Eyeliner Sampler:
-Sephora Waterproof Retractable Eyeliner-Glitter eyeliner crayon-Full Size
-Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil-Very creamy/smooth glide-Sample Size
-Smashbox Jet Set Waterproof (Gel) Eye Liner-Easy application/Smooth-Full Size
-Kat Von D Tattoo Liner-Felt tip brush-like pen-Sample Size
-Urban Decay 24/7 Liquid Eyeliner-Finest tip super skinny!-Full Size
Probably the best value sampler kit, this kit was only $28 and came with 3 full sized eyeliners that are usually $20 a piece. With that being said this is such a great value and perfect for people just getting into makeup *ahem* me lol It gives you a sample of every type of eyeliner: pencils, gel, liquid, pen, and retractable. So I highly recommend this kit if you are just getting into makeup like me. It gave me a cheaper alternative to buying each product separately and not knowing whether I would like them. The sample sizes are deluxe size so you get a good amount to use for about a month so I am quite happy ! :)
Sephora Beauty Insider Birthday Gift from Sugar!
-Sugar Lip Treatment
-Sugar Lip Tinted Treatment in Rose
Both are sample sizes!
Hope you guys liked the little haul! More to come! :)
