Monday

Guys, I did it. I went to the dark side and got an iPhone. I figured I wanted to be ready and start the New Year fresh, and so far that's what I'm doing. New Year, new everything apparently. It's taking a while to adjust though. I've been an Android girl since forever, and I loved the organization and tidiness of my folders, but I mean an iPhone does that too but I do miss those folders and how easy it was to manage. Besides that, yes I do love the simplicity of an iPhone. Still a couple of things to get the hang of but nothing to drastic.

Anyway, how's your Holiday shopping going? So far I've done none but for myself, haha. I mean, this always happens to me and I find myself shopping last minute which I secretly love and hate.  Love the thrill and adrenaline but hate the traffic. I'm just glad I picked on little things here and there from my what my family want and actually need. So yeah, can't wait to shop Friday.

My grandmother is in town so the house smells like food 24/7. My moms happy though because she can finally take a break from cooking, but it also means I need to hit the gym more. I've been getting pretty good at going to the gym and the kids I look after always keep me on my toes, so I'm getting there eventually.

Besides all the good stuff, I started binge watching Netflix's new original series The OA. I saw the trailer when it came out this weekend and I was pretty intrigued. I just don't like how they compared it to Stranger Things.

Like, the similarities are there but this is a completely different show. I also discovered I like watching sci-fi. Which reminds me that I haven't finished watching Penny Dreadful, ahh too many shows. I'm currently halfway through The OA series and I like it. Also, Lucious Malfoy is in it so there's that.

So yeah, that's pretty much what's going on over here. How's that polar vortex for you northerners? I wish I was in the cold so if you want to trade places let me know! I hope you're all well and I'll talk to you soon!

Wednesday

I'm writing this post with a sheet mask on my face. I bought two of the Tony Moly I'm Real mask sheet masks, and I currently have the Red Wine on my face. I never tried a sheet mask, it's my first time, and yes it does smell like actual Red Wine. Will it leave my face smooth and pore free? To be announced. I also bought the Seaweed mask, which I'll probably try next week. I have combination skin, so I try not to use a lot of products on my face when it's time to clean and take my makeup off. I still have my samples from Mario Badescu, but my go to is Cetaphil. Guess I'll read the reviews on the masks though. It gives a cool and soothing effect.


Anyway, I'm going to Pinterest and gather gift ideas that I plan to post some time this week or early next week. Just me, my laptop and my coffee. Hope you're having a great day!

Playlist: December 2016

As promised, here is this months playlist. Like previous playlists, I try to add songs that you don't listen to every day, and pretty much songs that I love to have on repeat no matter what. The songs below are fairly new, others are not. Regardless, they have flow and a way with words that absolutely hooks me to the song. I hope you like it and enjoy!


Tuesday

I feel like such a jerk for not having this month's playlist yet. I could have done it this past weekend, but no. Instead I decide to be a bum and catch up on my sleep and whatnot. But nonetheless, it will be done! Did you watch the Critic's Choice last night? Any favorite winners? I was so happy that Mahershala Ali won for Moonlight. I still haven't seen the movie, but I love him as an actor, particularly his work on House of Cards and Luke Cage. Seriously guys, he's amazing. I think Best Picture is down to Moonlight and La La Land, another movie I've read rave reviews about and am dying to see.

On another note, I am officially done with this semester. WOOOO HOOO!!Today's class was all about screening our music videos, and I'm actually quite impressed with the other groups work. I feel like this class was fun to take and needed to set us up for the future. I'm excited to take the Workshop class next semester. I really need to get myself together and work my butt off to make great work! But right now, it's two weeks of "Me" time and hanging out with friends I have neglected because of the crazy semester I've had. I PROMISE TO START WORKING ON THE DECEMBER PLAYLIST RIGHT NOW. I'll probably binge watch Fuller House as I work on it. Talk to you guys soon!

Wednesday

Wow guys, I really have been busy...and tired! Thanksgiving break was a lot of fun though. That Wednesday I went to a block party in Sunset with friends. Thanksgiving Thursday was filled with food and then I went to Macy's with my mom and sister to buy Ralph Lauren pillows. They were $7, so of course I had to get at least two! Later that night my sister and I went Black Friday shopping with friends. I finally got my all-in-one printer! I've been needing one since forever and I got mine for $40. Bonus, it's a Canon! That Saturday I spent some time with my godchildren then went to a Friendsgiving, and then the next day I met up with friends for drinks. I'm telling you, it was pretty fun and busy!

Overall, finally scanning my photography pictures from spring semester was the highlight of my break. I'm so happy to share them with you all. Below are two of my favorites, I hope you like them! Also, I will try to post more often even when I'm tired and all I want to do is sleep! Talk to you soon!

Monday

Hello lovelies! Super sorry I have not posted or written anything since last week, but I have been quite the busy bee. There's like three/four weeks left till this semester is over and we are currently planning our last project which is a music video. It looks like a lot of fun and I can't wait to start shooting.

So a little update over here. I got a pretty cool babysitting job which fits perfectly with my school schedule. The kids are amazing and it's fairly close to my house so yay, This weekend was filled with baby/kids birthdays. Saturday was my neighbors kid first birthday, and yesterday was my goddaughter's third.


Overall, it was a really nice weekend and I am super tired. On a good note, my sleep schedule is starting to look pretty good. I've been waking up before 12 and making the most of my days. That was my quick update. Hope you're having a good start to the week. Also, I CAN'T BELIEVE THANKSGIVING IS THIS WEEKEND! AHH!

I LOVE everything about these looks, particularly how perfect they are for the holidays. Whether you are feeling chic or bold, I think they are perfect. I may have to give some of these a try since I'm starting to become a social butterfly, so I think it'd be fun to dabble into. I think you should go for it too! Just sayin'.

Wednesday

Is it me or are Wednesday's pretty long? Like, I feel like it's been such a long day. Is it the time change? Is it me? I don't know. I have been having a pretty productive Wednesday though. I took my sister to school, I've been babysitting and now I'm taking a little break before I commence with the rest of my Wednesday. I found the "bullet journal" I was supposed to be working on since this summer, but it now has turned into my little planner. I do plan to make a nice bullet journal for the new year. I know it'll keep me organized and preoccupied with decorating and drawing. I will make this happen. By the way, I have not finished The Crown. I was going to on Sunday but I couldn't keep my eyes open any longer after my trip. I think I'll finish that tonight if not tomorrow. Well, I hope you're having a nice Wednesday so far. If it feels like a long day, you're not the only one!

Tuesday

So I definitely needed a day to relax, hence why I didn't have a Monday intro yesterday. I was in Sarasota for the weekend for a friend's birthday and it was so nice to get away and spend some time with friends. My friend, Giselle, goes to Ringling art school and it was so nice and cool seeing all the animation accomplishments from previous alumni. She also showed me her game art project for this semester...so freaking cool. On Sunday we took a stroll at the beach, Turtle Beach. An actual Turtle Beach. Sadly, no turtles were spotted. I think we were a week or two early before they hatched, still it was pretty amazing being on an actual turtle beach. It was a great weekend nonetheless, and I sure can't wait to go back and take another trip elsewhere.


Well, I hope you enjoyed your weekend and are having a good week thus far. Can you believe Thanksgiving is already next week? Time I tell ya, it just doesn't stop! Talk to you soon lovelies!

Friday

I have been procrastinating with packing for my weekend trip. We are supposed to leave tomorrow morning but my clothes are just laying there, staring at me waiting to pack them away. Adding more to the level of procrastination: The Crown. I am on episode four of the Netflix original which follows the story of Queen Elizabeth becoming Queen Elizabeth. It's pretty intriguing because it shows her marriage to Prince Philip and the politics behind leading a country. Also, Matt Smith is in and it's pretty weird seeing him be kind of a douche. WHAT HAPPENED DOCTOR? Clair Foy is awesome as the role of Elizabeth and like I said, I'm only on episode four and it's great!

It's also been a great distraction from this weeks events. I don't want to talk about it at the moment. I'm hoping this trip goes great since all I want to do is relax and enjoy my friend's birthday. So I'll leave you with this. Love and kindness to you all.
