Second Year||| What I've Learned About Myself

It's been so hard for me to write lately but tonight as I sit in front of my computer trying to have a "me night" I decided that I wanted to write!
I don't know if you guys know this but it's my second year at  UCF & I am loving it, I'm finally getting to that point where I will be taking classes for my major & I'm more than excited. But aside from school I am going to talk about my social life (or lack there of compared the average college student lol). I want to talk about not losing yourself in such a pivotal moment in life.
The more time I spend in college the more I realize how important I am to myself. Now this may sound weird & it even feels weird typing it, but you have to find moments to take care of you. I say this because over time I have realized that I am the definition of a mom friend & sometimes that can be great and purely rewarding. But at other times it is honestly draining. I am only human. & with being human comes my own problems, responsiblites and stressers which I also need an outlet for. But it can be hard to express that when you want to take care of everyone else; but let me tell you- you have to find a way to balance the two. If not you're going to become unhappy in any other relationships with people because you are holding it all in!
So I repeat, care for yourself. Whether its just painting your nails and watching a chick flick, reading, taking a nice bubble bath, working out or even hanging out with a friend and getting back to old habits of spilling how your week was. In college it's easy to lose sight of what's important but stay grounded and true to yourself and everything will be just fine.
I'll try to update more often as time goes by, but I'm absolutely so busy and setting a blogging schedule just wont work right now! I know, I know...such a shocker coming from the girl who posts about organization at least in every other bog post.

Summer Sunset|||Makeup

Hey everyone! I know that I have been gone for a whilllllle!  

I finished up my first year of college which was absolutely WONDERFUL! I had so much fun!!
But now I am back home for the summer and I want to bring a fresh new feel to the blog! I want to do more beauty posts since that's actually my passion (but I'll see how far i get with blogging in general; I've been feeling so iffy about it!) so today I will be sharing a eye look that I think is super pretty for summer! 

For this look I used the Two Faced Chocolate Bar palette and 'Get Lucky' super shock shadow by ColourPop. 
1| After applying a primer I put milk chocolate all over my lid as a base
2| I then put salted caramel & semi sweet in my crease with a blending brush
3| I then used my finger to apply Get Lucky
4-6| Using a pencil brush, I blended the harsh edges into my crease
7| Winged liner using Physicians Formula liquid liner (literally my fav liquid liner!)
8| Couple coats of Better Than Sex mascara by Too Faced
9| Applied 'Lady' lippie by ColourPop 

That's it! Comment below if you have any questions and I hoped you enjoyed this quick pictorial!
