My February Playlist!

OMG how is February over already??  This month has gone by SO fast!  I had a lot going on but I loved every minute.  I've been helping my little sister plan her wedding which is fun but emotional.  I also got my first ever internship!  Life has been pretty good lately.  I've been discovering so many songs and loving all of them.  I'm still obsessed with my January playlist as well.  This month is a good mix of older songs and new ones.  I'm so exited for you to hear it!!  What songs are you loving?

1. Bad Things by Machine Gun Kelly feat. Camila Cabello
Favorite lyric: Am I out of my head? Am I out of my mind? If you only knew the bad things I like Don't think that I can explain it What can I say, it's complicated Don't matter what you say Don't matter what you do I only wanna do bad things to you So good, that you can't explain it What can I say, it's complicated

4. Burning House by Cam
Favorite lyric: I've been sleepwalking, been wandering all night Trying to take what's lost and broke and make it right I've been sleepwalking too close to the fire But it's the only place that I can hold you tight In this burning house

7. Body Like A Back Road by Sam Hunt
Favorite lyric: Body like a back road, drivin' with my eyes closed I know every curve like the back of my hand Doin' 15 in a 30, I ain't in no hurry I'ma take it slow just as fast as I can

8. Girl On TV by LFO
Favorite lyric: Shooby-doo-wop,and scobby snacks, met a fly girl and i can't relax, the only problem is she's a movie star, Oh,my friends, they won't believe me, if they could only see me, at the risk of sounding cheesy, i think i fell for the girl on TV. I wish for you on a fallin' star, wonderin' where you are, do I ever cross your mind, In the warm sunshine, she's from the city of angels, like Betty Davis, James Dean, and Gable, never know  what she means to me.I fell for the girl that's on TV.

9. That's What I Like by Bruno Mars
Favorite lyric: Gold jewelry shining so bright Strawberry champagne on ice Lucky for you, that's what I like, that's what I like Lucky for you, that's what I like, that's what I like Sex by the fire at night Silk sheets and diamonds all white Lucky for you, that's what I like, that's what I like Lucky for you, that's what I like, that's what I like

10. Paris by The Chainsmokers
Favorite lyric: We were staying in Paris To get away from your parents And I thought, "Wow, if I could take this in a shot right now I don't think that we could work this out." Out on the terrace I don't know if it's fair but I thought, "How could I let you fall by yourself While I'm wasted with someone else?"

Ipsy Unboxing: February

It's that time again...it's time to open my monthly ipsy bag!!!  I've been subscribed since August and I'm still excited every time.  I did a post like this a few months ago but I didn't love how it turned out.  So hopefully you can let me know what you want to see.  If you want to see swacthes or individual pictures of the products let me know.  I'm going to link to every product so if you are interested in it then you can buy it right away.  Enjoy!

The Bag:
In case you don't know what ipsy is here is a quick description.  Every month you are sent 5 random beauty products in a makeup bag.  I usually love the bag but this month really let me down!  This month's bag was a denim material with a neon orange border.  I wanted pink or hearts because of Valentine's Day!  Maybe I would have loved it more in a different month.

The Products:
I don't like using red lipstick because I'm so pale.  This is really nice though.  The color isn't too bold which I like.  It is super lightweight and feels like butter going on.  I couldn't believe how smooth it was!  You really can't go wrong with Nyx.

I always love getting nail polish because I had to redo my collection.  This color is darkish gray and the coverage is amazing!  You really only need one coat.  It is also vegan and toxic free which is always a good thing.

I love this product!  It's so versatile and a gorgeous peachy shade.  You can use it as a highlighter, eye shadow, and even on your lips!  It just makes everything so glowy and I really love the name.

This is a huge mascara package and I love how bright it is.  It's super easy to find in your makeup that's for sure.  I haven't tried this out yet.  The brush is really flexible though so it can really separate your lashes so they look full.

I'm OBSESSED with this brand and I'm very happy I got two sheet masks.  This one is a skin brightening mask that has vitamin C in it.  It really does work and it makes your skin super soft.  I highly recommend this brand.

I haven't tried this sheet mask yet but I'm sure I'll love it.  This one is for moisturizing your skin.  It has almond oil and vitamin E in it which you rub into your skin after you take the mask off.  This perfect for winter!

My January Playlist!

I feel like I've been waiting FOREVER to write this post!  This month has been fast but slow all at the same time.  I've barely posted but I finally have my schedule all figured out.  That means you'll be seeing a lot more posts from me.  I didn't have a playlist last month because it was all Christmas music.  That is why I'm excited to share this with you!  I'm OBSESSED with every song and it's pretty much all I've listened to.  It's the perfect mixture of songs.  What songs are you loving?

2. Do It Again by Pia Mia

3. Love Like We Used To by Captain Cuts feat. Nateur
Favorite lyric: I ain't afraid to call you I'll pick you up at nine Meet your daddy and your mama In my suit and tie I'll play you something old school Make it last all night Something that reminds us Of a different time So why don't me and you Love like we used to? So why don't me and you Love like we used to?

4. Shape Of You by Ed Sheeran
Favorite lyric: I'm in love with the shape of you We push and pull like a magnet do Although my heart is falling too I'm in love with your body And last night you were in my room And now my bed sheets smell like you Every day discovering something brand new I'm in love with your body Oh I oh I oh I oh I I'm in love with your body Oh I oh I oh I oh I I'm in love with your body Oh I oh I oh I oh I I'm in love with your body Every day discovering something brand new I'm in love with the shape of you

5. Make Me (Cry) by Noah Cyrus feat. Labrinth
Favorite lyric: Gave you up 'bout 21 times Felt those lips, tell me 21 lies, yeah You'll be the death of me Sage advice Love-lovin' you could make Jesus cry When I hear you're sayin' "Darling, Your kiss is like an antidote." I'm fightin' like I'm Ali, But you got me on the ropes

10. Just Got Paid by NSYNC
Favorite lyric: Yo some people say my solo is impossible But when I get up on the mic, yo, I'm unstoppable And it's probable when ya hear our voices laid down You'll be boppin' your head to this ill tight sound Now I know you thought you had me played (played) check is in the mail I got it made (made) And if you'll notice my smile is like Kool-Aid Cuz I just (just) got (got) paid (paid) uh

My 2017 Goals

Happy 2017 everybody!!!!!!  I'm honestly really excited for the new year because 2016 sucked.  I had THE worst year and I'm not exaggerating.  I was in the hospital, broke my knee, and had tooth surgery.  Those are just the highlights.  For the last few years I set goals for the new year.  I didn't really do so well last year but I'm going to try harder.  If you want to see what my 2016 goals were click here.  What are your goals?

Read 12 books: One book a month shouldn't be too hard since I joined a blogger book club.  You can join too if you would like.

Blog 3-5 times a day: I want to really share more with you guys.  If you have any ideas then let me know.

Worry less: I have bad anxiety so I really want to work on that this year.

Watch more movies: I didn't really watch many movies because I was so sick.  I love movies!

Be more social: I am a pretty shy person so I want to get out more and socialize.

Work with more brands:  Now that I redid my blog I hope more opportunities will come my way.

What I Got For Christmas 2016!!

I am finally back!!!  I took time away from blogging for the holidays.  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday.  I sure did!  It was SUPER busy but that is what makes it so fun.  Every year I watch What I Got For Christmas videos on YouTube.  I just find it so interesting and fun.  Last year I did a post sharing what I got and you guys seemed to like it.  So here is this years What I Got For Christmas post!  What was your favorite gift?

First up my little sister got me this snowglobe.  I actually collect them so I was very happy.  It is super beautiful and glittery which fits my personality perfectly! I love that it says the year as well.

She also bought me this olive bomber patch jacket.  I love this!!!!  It is really comfortable and the inside is bright orange.  It is the perfect addition to my wardrobe and jacket collection.

From my mom I got these pajamas.  I wore these all day on Christmas and I just love them.  The pants are like leggings which is what I basically live in.  I will honestly wear these all year!

She also bought me a bunch of these solar powered dancing toys.  I am obsessed with these!  I probably own 20 and will definitely buy more.

My friend bought me hot pink sequin uggs!!!  I was SO shocked!  I've never owned a real pair so I'm very happy and grateful.

Last but not least, my older sister got me some sheet masks and an Ulta gift card.  I've been dying to try some sheet masks.  Also I pretty much spend all my money at Ulta so it is perfect for me!
