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!

DIY Lip Scrub

Now that the cold weather has appeared everything is dry.  I HATE having dry and chapped lips.  It's the worst feeling ever!  While hanging out with one of my friends we decided to make our own lip scrubs.  A lib scrub gets all the dry skin off so when you apply chapstick it actually works.  They can be a bit pricey so this will save you money.  You could even give them as Christmas gifts!  It's SUPER easy and you probably have all the ingredients already!  If you make this tweet me pictures!  Enjoy!

What You Will Need:
2 cups white sugar
½ cup coconut oil
5-7 drops of orange essential oil
A jar with a lid
Pink food coloring

1. Begin by mixing the sugar and coconut oil in a bowl. You can use a wooden spoon or food processor.

2. Add in the orange essential oil. You can use any flavor you want.  Also add a few drops of food coloring if you'd like.  Mine is bright pink but you can skip this part if you want.  Continue to mix and blend until the sugar scrub is the consistency you wish.
3. Store the sugar scrub in a glass jar with lid to keep it fresh.  To use your sugar scrub, just apply it to wet skin in a circular motion and rinse.

Book Haul

Winter is my favorite time to read.  I just find it so relaxing during all the hustle and bustle.  Plus what a better to spend a snowy night.  So I recently decided to buy some new books.  It's been awhile since I did a haul so I thought this would be the perfect time.  Maybe you will discover some new books.  I will link to a summary so nothing gets ruined.  What books are you loving?  Let me know!

First up is Girl Online Going Solo by Zoe Sugg.  This is the third and final book in the series.  I just love Zoe so of course I had to have the book.  I'm currently reading the second one so I can't wait to read this.  For a summary click here.

This is Two By Two by Nicholas Sparks.  I mean do I really have to explain???  His books are my obsession!  I have read every single book.  This one looks like a total tearjerker just by looking at the cover.  For a summary click here.

This is Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear by Elizabeth Gilbert.  I can't say too much about this but if you want to find out the secret make sure you follow my blog.  It will be revealed next week!  For a summary click here.

This is Bloom: Navigating Life And Style by Estee Lolonde.  I love Estee SO much!!  She is probably my favorite Youtuber so when she announced her book I immediately bought it.  I can't wait to read this.   For a summary click here.

Lastly is Good As Gone by Amy Gentry.  I had heard nothing about this book until I stumbled on it.  It was compared to Gone Girl which is one of my favorite books.  Plus this cover just draws me in for some reason.  For a summary click here.

Sorry I took a break again!  I'm back now I promise!  I love sharing my obsessions with you so don't worry.  My weekly obsession is........Yes To Coconut Ultra Hydrating Facial Mask!!!!!!!!  When I have a stressful week I love to pamper myself.  This is perfect for that!  I just started getting into skin care and I can't get enough.  Before applying this I used a facial scrub to remove any dirt or dead skin.  This mask really makes your skin feel extremely smooth.  It's very affordable as well which is always nice.  I love pretty much anything coconut currently so I knew I would love this.  My skin still feels soft after 4 days.  It's amazing!!!!  Tell me some masks you love and maybe I'll try them.

Can you believe Thanksgiving is next week already??  It isn't really a huge deal in my family but we do enjoy spending time together.  We usually spend the day playing games and eating A LOT.  Today I'm going to share the perfect dessert to bring to dinner.  A couple weeks ago I had Apple Crisp and became obsessed!  My grandma found this recipe on Pinterest and it's SOOO good!  You can make adjustments if you prefer.  We used different apples and oats.  If you make this tweet me pictures.  Enjoy!!!

♥My November Ipsy Bag♥

I never thought I would sign up for any monthly subscription bags or boxes.  I just never saw the point.  Finally two of my friends convinced me to try Ipsy.  I am now obsessed!!!  I've been getting bags since August but I finally decided to share what I get.  If you don't know what Ipsy is then let me explain.  For $10 a month you get a bag with 5 beauty products.  The bag equals around $50-$60 worth of products so that's an amazing deal.  When you sign up you take a beauty test so your bag is customized for you.  It comes every month and you can cancel anytime.  Let's see what is in my bag!

Let's start with the bag.  Every month is a new design and I'm in love this one!  You will either get silver or gold constellations.  I think the gold looks better though.  It is slightly metallic which I love.  The zipper is also a gold star.

This is the Adesse New York Brightening Base Coat.  You put this on before painting your nails or just use it on it's own.  It prevents your nails from being yellow it also makes your polish last longer.  It is also cruelty free.  I'm very excited to try this product.

This is the Luxie Rose Gold Small Duo Fiber Brush 524T.  This brush is SUPER  soft!  It can be used with powders, creams, or liquids.  It's easy to blend with and it is great for sensitive skin.  Plus who wouldn't want this adorable brush in their collection?

This is the Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream.  This is for anti-aging.  You put this on your face after you've washed your face in the mornings.  I'm not sure if I will use this or not.  I might give it to my mom but you never know.  It's never too early to work on anti-aging and wrinkles.

This is the STARLOOKS Cream Eye Shadow in Rose Gold.  I've never used a cream shadow before but I really like it.  You can also use it as a liner.  It is metallic which I love.  It is very long lasting and very blendable.

Last up is the theBalm Cosmetics Mad Lash Mascara.  I love this!!  Mascaras are my favorite product anyway.  The wand is curved to really give your lashes volume.  It grabs every single lash.  This is also a cruelty free product.

Overall, I loved this month's bag.  It had a nice range of products which I like.  Also the bag design won me over.  My favorite product is probably the base coat because I constantly have my nails painted.  Do you get an Ipsy bag?  If so, what was your favorite product?

Weekly Obsession!

I'm SO glad that I have been keeping up with these posts.  Be prepared though because once the holidays happen most of my obsessions will probably be food related.  I'm very excited for my obsession this week.  My weekly obsession is......Beauty And The Beast!!!!!!!  This is honestly one of my favorite Disney films.  I watched it all the time as a kid.  When I heard they were going to make it into a live action version I just couldn't picture it.  Then when Emma Watson was cast as Belle I was SO upset!  She looks nothing like Belle!!!!  At that point I decided I wasn't going to see the film.  Then the trailer was released and I lost my mind!  It looks AMAZING!!!!  They really stayed true to the original film which made me very happy.  Emma Watson was really transformed and beast looked fantastic!  I'll leave the trailer below.  It comes out in March and I can't wait!!!!  Fun fact: My mom and I are actually going to see the play in May or June so will definitely let you guys know how it is.  What are you currently loving?  Let me know!

Lazy Saturday Outfit

I am loving outfit posts at the moment!  On Saturday I went to my nieces' birthday party.  I wanted to look nice but still be comfortable.  This is the perfect outfit for that.  I wore a slightly oversized blue striped shirt.  It is longer in the back with two pockets in front.  I love how the stripes go in different directions.  It makes it more interesting.  I chose a pair of lightwash jeggings.  They are super comfortable and the rip details make it more casual.  Last up are my ankle booties.  These are my favorite shoes!  The chain details are just perfect!  All my clothes are from Kohls.  For my hair I did a messy braid with my sea salt spray for slight waves.  Let me know if you want more posts like this.

Weekly Obsession!

It's been a crazy busy day today which is why this post is late.  I didn't forget though!  My weekly obsession is.....Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray!!!!!!!  First of all I LOVE this brand.  I own a couple of their other products and they are fantastic.  I bought this spray in summer and never got a chance to use it.  Now that I cut my hair I use it pretty much daily.  You can put on wet or dry hair which is perfect.  It really does make your hair look like you spent the day in the ocean.  It also smells SO good!  It's a really affordable product.  I paid $6 which is what other products in this brand are as well.  You won't regret checking this out!!!  What are you loving?

Movie Review: Trolls

I'm not going to lie, I totally took my niece so I wouldn't look like a weird 27 year old.  I love Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake so I was super excited to see this film.  To be honest I didn't really know what it was about.  I'll give you a brief description.  The trolls are celebrating being free from the Bergens for 20 years.  When a Bergen finds them and kidnaps some of the Trolls.  Poppy decides to go rescue them with the help of an unwilling Branch.  I LOVED this movie!  I thought the storyline was adorable.  The soundtrack is also incredible.  It had some adult humor so everybody can enjoy it.  I highly recommend it!  If you saw it then let me know what you thought.

♥DIY Donut Pumpkin♥

One of my favorite things about Halloween is carving pumpkins.  This year I wanted to do something different.  The new trend is painting pumpkins so that's what I did.  I LOVE donuts!!!  I went to Pinterest to find some inspiration.  I think my pumpkin turned out pretty adorable.  I think next year I'll do a few more.

What You Will Need:
-A pumpkin of any size
-A pencil
-Acrylic Paint (any colors you want)
-Paint brushes

1. Pick the pumpkin you want.  I went with a small one so it would be more realistic.
2. Then I took a pencil to outline the frosting.  Take gray paint and go over the outline.
3. Paint the top part of your pumpkin light pink.  Then paint the bottom portion a tan color.
4. After everything is dry use multiple different colors to make sprinkles.

It is that easy!  Did you decorate any pumpkins this year?  I would love to see them!  Tweet me pictures especially if you try this design.

4 Last Minute Halloween Costumes From Your Closet

Most of us will probably be going to some sort of Halloween party this weekend.  There is no reason to go spend $80 on a costume because all you'll need is your closet.  If you are like me then you probably have no clue what to be.  Don't worry I've got you covered!  I came up with 4 costumes that you already own.  Let's get to it!

First up is a scarecrow.  All you'll need is a plaid shirt, preferably red, some ripped jeans, and brown boots.  You can add makeup and a straw hat if you would like.  All you need is a braid and your look is complete.

Next up is a witch.  All that you will need is a black dress and black boots.  Any dress will work as long it's black so just pick your favorite.  The only thing you'll need to but is a witch hat which is less than $5.  If you are crafty then make your own.

Next is a flower goddess.  You'll need a flowy white dress, sandals, and a flower crown.  Think Coachella vibes or the Snapchat filter.  This my favorite for sure.

Last up is a fitness girl.  All you need are yoga pants, a exercise top, and sneakers.  This is probably the best one.  You can go straight from the gym to your party.  Plus you will be super comfortable all night!

Well that is what I came up with!  What was your favorite?  Also, let me know what you are going to be for Halloween in the comments!

Weekly Obsession!

I have missed sharing all my current obsessions with you guys!!!!!  I promise I'm back for good though!  My weekly obsession is.........braided hair ties!!!  I was looking for hair ties that didn't have the metal piece.  The problem is that I have SUPER thick hair so most of them just slide right out.  While scrolling on Ulta I discovered these.  All the reviews said they were great for thick hair so I bought them.  OMG I can't get enough!!!  I bought the neon ones and have the pastel and black one currently in my cart.  I need them all!  The only downfall is only 6 come in a pack and I need like 50!  I guess I'll just have to buy more ;).  What have you guys been loving?  Let me know!

Casual Fall Outfit

Today was the perfect Fall day in Nebraska.  The leaves are finally changing and it is getting a lot cooler out.  Today I thought I would share my OOTD.  I have always wanted a moto jacket but they can be pricey.  I found this one on sale and had to have it!  The sleeves and hood are super soft sweater material and the body part is faux leather.  Under that is my Ninja Turtle 3/4 shirt which got TONS of compliments on.  I decided on dark wash skinny jeans since I was wearing a lighter shirt.  My boots are a chocolate brown which are so comfy.  Everything I'm wearing is from Kohl's.  If you like these types of posts just let me know!!

My August Playlist!

Is August really over???  This year is going SUPER fast!  I'm actually happy this month is over because I'm finally having oral surgery.  That means I won't be in pain anymore and I'll be back to posting more often.  This month my mom and I went to see The Beach Boys in concert and it was so much fun.  You'll definitely see that reflected in this playlist.  It's a mixture of new and old songs.  Hopefully you guys will enjoy it.  I'm still loving my July playlist so make sure you check it out.  What songs are you guys loving?

1. Too Good by Drake Feat. Rihanna
Favorite lyric: Yeah and last night I think I lost my patience Last night I got high as your expectations Last night I came to a realization And I hope you can take it I hope you can take it
I'm too good to you I'm way too good to you You take my love for granted I just don't understand it

2. Closer by The Chainsmokers feat. Halsey
Favorite lyric: I know it breaks your heart Moved to the city in a broke down car And four years, no call Now I'm looking pretty in a hotel bar And I, I, I, I, I can't stop No, I, I, I, I, I can't stop So baby pull me closer in the back seat of your Rover That I know you can't afford Bite that tattoo on your shoulder Pull the sheets right off the corner Of that mattress that you stole From your roommate back in Boulder We ain't ever getting older

3. The Middle by Jimmy Eat World
Favorite lyric: Hey, don't write yourself off yet It's only in your head you feel left out or looked down on Just try your best, try everything you can And don't you worry what they tell themselves when you're away It just takes some time Little girl you're in the middle of the ride Everything everything will be just fine Everything everything will be alright alright

4. Kokomo by The Beach Boys
Favorite lyric: Aruba, Jamaica, ooh I wanna take you to Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama
Key Largo Montego, baby why don't we go Ooh I wanna take you down to Kokomo, we'll get there fast and then we'll take it slow That's where we wanna go, way down in Kokomo

5. My Girl by The Temptations
Favorite lyric: I've got sunshine on a cloudy day When it's cold outside I've got the month of May
I guess you'd say What can make me feel this way? My girl (my girl, my girl) Talkin' 'bout my girl (my girl)

6. I Hate U, I Love U by Gnash feat. Olivia
Favorite lyric: I hate you, I love you, I hate that I love you Don't want to but I can't put nobody else above you I hate you, I love you, I hate that I want you You want her, you need her And I'll never be her

7. Gold by Kiiara
Favorite lyric: And if you love me, love me but you never let me go When the roof was on fire, you never let me know Say you're sorry honey, but you never really show And I could leave the party without ever letting you know Without ever letting you know

8. Promiscuous by Nelly Furtado feat. Timberland
Favorite lyric: Roses are red Some diamonds are blue Chivalry is dead But you're still kinda cute Hey! I can't keep my mind off you Where you at, do you mind if I come through

9. Then He Kissed Me by The Crystals
Favorite lyric: Kissed me in a way I've never been kissed before He kissed me in a way I wanna be kissed forevermore

10. Starving by Hailee Steinfeld feat. Zedd
Favorite lyric: I didn't know that I was starving 'til I tasted you Don't need no butterflies when you give me the whole damn zoo By the way, by the way, you do things to my body I didn't know that I was starving 'til I tasted you

My July Playlist!

Is July really over?  It was a very eventful month.  Firstly I turned 27 which I still can't believe.  I'm getting old!!  I still feel young though.  I also hurt my knee while showering.  I'm not sure what happened I just felt a snap and then I couldn't move it.  It's getting better though.  I'm still obsessed with June's playlist so check that out.  I discovered so much new music this month.  I also included a throwback as well.  What are you listening to?

1. All In My Head (Flex) by Fifth Harmony feat. Fetty Wap
Favorite lyric: Curtains like waves closing in all around us Dimming the lights just so that they don't blind us So tongue-in-cheek when we're laying on roses But you're touching my skin, and you're leaving me hopeless

2. Say My Name by Destiny's Child
Favorite lyric: I know you say that I am assuming things Something's going down, that's the way it seems Shouldn't be no reason why you're acting strange If nobody's holding you back from me 'Cause I know how you usually do Where you're saying everything to me times two Why can't you just tell the truth If somebody's there, then tell me who

3. Make Me by Britney Spears feat. G-Eazy
Favorite lyric: I just want you to make me move Like it ain't a choice for you, like you got a job to do
Just want you to raise my roof Something sensational (oh yeah) And make me oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh And make me oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh

4. Don't Mind by Kent Jones
Favorite lyric: She telling me this And telling me that You said once you take me with you, I'll never go back Now I got a lesson that I want to teach I'mma show you that where you from don't matter to me She said, "Hola. ¿Cómo estás?" She said, "Konnichiwa." She said, "Pardon my French," I said, "Bonjour, Madame." Then she said, "Sak pase," and I said, "N'ap boule." No matter where I go, you know I love 'em all She said, "Hola. ¿Como estás?" She said, "Konnichiwa." She said, "Pardon my French," I said, "Bonjour, Madame." Then she said, "Sak pase," and I said, "N'ap boule." No matter where I go you know I love them all

5. Slow Motion by Matt Wertz
Favorite lyric: Every minute wanna getcha, getcha closer Soak up every second trying to get to know ya Lets just take our time We can't hit rewind World's spinning, don't miss another moment Every kiss on your lips has got me hoping We just take our time Slow Motion

6. Into You by Ariana Grande
Favorite lyric: So, baby, come light me up, and maybe I'll let you on it A little bit dangerous, but, baby, that's how I want it A little less conversation and a little more "touch my body" 'Cause I'm so into you, into you, into you Got everyone watchin' us, so, baby, let's keep it secret A little bit scandalous, but, baby, don't let them see it A little less conversation and a little more "touch my body" 'Cause I'm so into you, into you, into you, oh yeah

7. Cheap Thrills by Sia
Favorite lyric: Baby I don't need dollar bills to have fun tonight (I love cheap thrills!) Baby I don't need dollar bills to have fun tonight (I love cheap thrills!) But I don't need no money As long as I can feel the beat I don't need no money As long as I keep dancing

8. Cold Water by Major Lazer feat. Justin Bieber
Favorite lyric: And if you feel you're sinking, I will jump right over into cold, cold water for you And although time may take us into different places I will still be patient with you And I hope you know
I won't let go I'll be your lifeline tonight I won't let go I'll be your lifeline tonight

9. Tears by Clean Bandit feat. Louisa Johnson
Favorite lyric: Tears on the ground, tears on my pillow You won't bring me down Tears on the ground, rain at my window The pain washes out Tears on the ground, rain at my window The pain washes out And I'll get over you Oh yeah, I'll get over you

10. F*** Apologies by JoJo feat. Whiz Khalifa
Favorite lyric: And honestly I was just about to pick up the phone And then I realized that I didn't do nothing wrong You would even tell two lies to prove that you were right Usually I'd go on and take the blame but not this time, not this time What you want from me? I would say I'm sorry if I really meant it F*** apologies I would say I'm sorry if I really meant it I'm not perfect, I got pride That's not what it is this time So f*** apologies I would say I'm sorry if I really meant it If I, if I, if I really meant it
