Thift Items!

Yay!  The semester is over! I ended up with 3 B's and 1 A. I do think I could have applied myself more and received more A's but I am happy I keep my scholarship! Alright, now what everyone has clicked for.
 Thrift items:

 I got this amazing etching at Goodwill!!! It is really pretty and signed by Henri Le Riche. I also found a picture on Ebay of a similar print on ebay for $99!! And this one was $7.
 Then I found these rolls of vintage ribbon at another thrift store. It was 3 rolls for a dollar. I got like 9 rolls of ribbon!
 I love the white with the blue and red design.
 Then I also found this really cute table cloth. It seems really Christmas-y but the flowers are not poinsettas so I think I could use it more during the year. It was like $2.

I hope everyone is having a lot of fun getting ready for Christmas!!! I wrapped some presents today and used my vintage ribbons.

New Art Prints!

I have added a couple of new Art Prints to the website! I wanted some that had a more fall feel to them with the holidays upon us. I think that the simplicity of the pomegranate in the white bowl is very clean looking and striking at the same time.

Also a new print size has been added! You can now get the art prints in 11x14 for images that you want in a larger size! They are $20 for the art prints. These prints are available at!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and I am looking forward to Christmas!


Amazing Eyeliners + Catching up!

Hey guys!!!

Sorry I have been gone for so long. School really started to catch up with me there. Especially today I had a test in all three of my classes today. So rough day. However, I am officially done with 2 of my classes as those were early finals! For the rest of my classes I have a project then for another I have a test and paper due. In the home stretch! I can not wait for the spring to start senior year of college. I am ready to graduate.

 I thought that I would share something that I have loved in November. I actually went and bought two more  after the initial two that I had bought. So now I have 4! =] And will probably be buying more.

The NYX Slide on Pencil is one of my favorite eyeliners now. I initially bought the Jet Black and Golden bronze shades. Then went back and got Brown Perfection and Jewel. They are ridiculously smooth. The Golden Bronze shade is probably the smoothest of them all. I really wish that this was more of a brown bronze because it is probably best described as a copper shade not a bronze. I went for this one because I have wanted a bronze to use underneath the eyes on the waterline. I have not really been using this color for that because it is more red toned. So instead I have been using the Brown Perfection and Jewel there and it works great. The Jet black has become my number one black for lining my eyes.

Jet Black, Brown Perfection, Jewel, Golden Bronze

The liners are $8 a piece and I bought them when Ulta was having a buy one get one half off sale. I highly suggest stocking up on these the next time they have this sell.  I have never owned one of the Urban Decay eyeliners but I have found multiple reviews saying that they are really similar. And you can have 2 of these for what Urban Decay liners cost.


I thought I would share some of my favorite instagram images from November! Making it Insta-ovember =]

I hope everyone is as excited for Christmas as I am! I can not wait.

New hair + voting

Hey guys!! I wanted to share something that I did today. Not to get political or anything. But I voted today! It is my first time voting in a presidential election. I have voted in smaller races within my state but nothing this large. 

I love being able to vote. I consider it a privilege and I think that everyone who is able should take part. It is the best way to let your voice be heard whatever your political leanings.

Also I wanted to share my new hair! I got the bangs cut about two weeks ago. I'm not super happy with how they were cut so I'm not sure if I will go back there nevertheless I'm happy with the style. :-) also it's cold so the perfect time to try bangs out.

Have you done anything new with your hair?

If I went Shopping today....

I would want to go to H&M and Forever 21. I love both of these stores! Also the Forever 21 at the mall closest to me just reopened from a HUGE renovation. I am really excited.

Items that I want from Forever 21-

There are a few springy looking items on the board but I think they could be mixed with different fall items to make them not as springy.  Also I am trying to decide if I like the sweaters with the printing on them. But I think that the frenchy one is adorable. Denim shirts, can never have enough. I now have bangs and I have been experimenting with different vintage feeling hair styles so I think the hair flowers would be really cute. Finally I am in LOVE with the polka dot with leather trim sneakers. I think I am definitely getting those on Saturday.

Forever 21

Items that I want from H&M-
Whenever I venture into H&M I end up finding something I love. I really want a motorcycle jacket either a traditional leather or the tweed one below would be awesome. I also love the lace dresses and chiffon tops from them. I end up doing mostly neutrals with a pop of color there.


Let me know if there is anything on my lists that you really like!
