New post up!

Hey guys! There is a new post up on and there are more to come soon! Come check it out! Hope everyone is having a great week so far!


Domain Name Troubles / Come Follow Me!

Hey guys! I have been thrilled to see in the past week since I made the decision to start blogging again that I have gained quite a few new followers! I could not be more happy! However, I am trying to transition from this site to my new domain, I love this site domain name, but unfortunately missed the date to renew my domain name and so it is now expired. I have done everything I can think of and I can’t seem to get it back, which is why I want to change names so that I will be able to get my own domain on that site once I start gaining followers. So I will keep posting here for now to let you guys know when I have updated my other site, but I would love it if you guys would come follow me at!

Hope everyone is having a great week! I will be updating soon so keep tuning in!

Hey everyone!

I hope eveyone is having a great weekend so far! Although I have a  paper due by midnight that I have been working on, I have been having a great, relaxing weekend so far. But the part of this weekend that I have really been looking forward to is coming up tonight! The OSCARS!!! I am looking so forward to the red carpet and all the fabulous gowns, which I will probably have a post about int he next two days. I am also excited for Ellen to host again since she did such a great job last year and I am a big fan of hers!

And of course, what everyone watched the Oscars for, I am DYING to know who will win what award! I have already picked out my favorites for all the big categories. What do you think is going to win Best Picture?

Thank you for reading! Have a great Sunday!

My Winter Essentials

Northeastern Pennsylvania is a difficult place to be right now. You want to know why? POLAR VORTEX.

For the past 3 weeks it has been snowing and sleeting and hailing at random and it has been so bitterly cold that nothing has melted! We have at least 4 feet of snow in any given direction which is layered in between with ice. It is the worst winter I have ever seen! But thankfully, the weather channel said it would be stopping this week. So I woke up happy this morning, expecting the sun to come out and start melting the snow. What I did not expect was for it to be simultaneously hailing and sleeting. It is nearly impossible to walk outside right now!

This inspired me to do a post about what has been getting me through the winter. Since it has been extremely harsh in more way than one, I have a whole bunch of products that have been keeping me warm, healthy, and moisturized:

My Winter Essentials

1) Lacrosse Boots – I have barely been able to wear anything but these boots around campus. With the snow and ice covering every surface, these boots have great traction and help me get where I need to be without having an unexpected meeting with the ground.

2) Aveeno Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30 – I definitely believe in wearing sunscreen everyday, so I love that this daily moisturizer has SPF in it. I apply this before applying makeup every morning to keep my face soft and protected from the harsh winds.

3) Regis Designline Silk Drops – With all the wind we have been having and with my hair constantly freezing and unfreezing as I go from place to place, my hair tends to get quite frizzy. These silk drops really help to tame my frizz. Plus the formula smells fantastic!

4) Legwarmers – These are an easy way to stay fashionable and warm. Since I have to sacrifice wearing my favorite shoes because of the weather, I figure I may as well change it up every once in a while by wearing these. I have 3 super comfy pairs and haven’t left my room without them in about 3 weeks 😀

5) Airborne – I would argue that this is the most important item on this list. I have already been sick with the flu this school semester and with germs flying around from drastic temperature changes I am trying to do everything possible to not get sick again! I use at least one tablet of airborne a day in a cup of water to keep my immune system up and running.

6) The Body Shop Cocoa Butter Lotion – This body butter is extremely moisturizing and is perfect for preventing my hands from cracking. I apply this every time before leaving my room and my hands are still soft and smooth.

7) Vaseline – I have always loved using Vaseline as lip gloss but I have been layering it on every time I even think about stepping outside. My lips get dried out SO easily, especially during the winter. So this is definitely a major staple for me.

What are some of your winter essentials?

I hope you enjoyed today’s post! I will be posting about my fall break in Mallorca sometime tomorrow so look out for that! Hope everyone has a great Wednesday!
