First Time at Lush Haul

So yesterday while I was shopping, I went to Lush for the first time ever. I always see so many blog post and YouTube videos about Lush and all the yummy products they have. So I stopped by and I was amazed!!! I actually went twice that day, once to just get little soaps and then I went back to get a bigger cut of them. I loved everything I tried and I will definitely be going back again, I loved it! I plan on doing reviews for everything that I got so be looking out for those!!!

July Favorites

So where I live July has been hot and humid and icky (well to me anyways). I havn’t been wearing much make up or hair products. Usually, I shower earlier in the day and then just let my hair air dry. And I have also been using beauty products very minimally. This is a short list but I still wanted to do one. Enjoy!
MAC Fix+: I love this stuff. I always keep it in my bag. I love to use it during the day as a refresher. Another thing that I like using it for is after the gym, when I’ve had a hard work out I just spray this on my face and I don’t feel so icky from all the sweat.
Pink Body Lotion in Vanilla and Shea Butter: I got this during the Semi Annual sale, it was only $3. I think they have discontinued it and honest this is so sad. I think this used to be in their organic line. I think that it was called nourishing. This stuff smells amazing!!! It smells like cake frosting. I love to put this all over my skin after I hop out of the shower. I also love it because it’s a very light weight lotion. If you can find this, pick it up.
Flip flops: I love these in the summer. I really love the ones from Old Navy. They come in so many colors and it is such a good value. I just simply love these. They have been my go to shoes this month.
What I’m Looking Forward To:
School Starting: I love school. I think I have always been the kid who loved going back to school. I love going back to school shopping and the first day. I’m just excited to be going back after not taking any summer classes.
Fall: I love fall. The weather is getting cooler, the leaves are changing colors (well depending on where you live), and the fashion. I love neutral colors, so fall fashion is my favorite. I also love the layered look with sweaters and scarves. Also my birthday is in the fall.
Getting my Macbook: I feel so behind, everyone I know has a Macbook. Not that I don’t enjoy the computer that I have, it’s just on its last leg I feel. Saving money is hard when you love to shop, but I understand this is something that I want and need so I will have to make it work!

Tiny Rant/Revelation

So, have you ever really wanted something but have the hardest time saving up for it because there are so many things that you think are important that get in the way of you buying it. This happens to me all the time. My laptop is a piece of poo. I would have to have the white Macbook because its so cute and easy to carry around for school. This laptop is over $1000 and where has the money gone that I wanted to use for it…to make up more importantly MAC. Now don’t get me wrong, I love MAC. I think MAC is a great company and they have great products and I love them. But, mostly all of the makeup I own is MAC and let me tell you, that all adds up. Now shouldn’t someone who needs a new laptop be using that hard-earned cash to get a new one…nope she’s buying 3 $14 lipsticks because they will just complete her life. My fall semester starts in less than a month and I am still using this laptop that overheats, crashes, will just randomly restart when it feels like it and has scary noises sometimes. I am putting myself on a mini MAC/high end make up ban. There are so many other brands and products out there that I am not opening myself up to. So I am going to start to try being more money conscious when it comes to beauty products because I feel like you don’t need to spend that much to have the pay off you get with high end products.
I just need to keep reminding myself, my laptop is what I need. I can get through the month without buying another MAC product. I can get the laptop to get the good grades to get the awesome job where I can just buy whatever I want. And with this new "ban" I'll be able to save my money and buy the things I really need.
I will definitely be posting more reviews and more updates on how I’m doing with this.

So it has been so long since I last updated my blog. Well I have been working a lot this summer. I can’t work a lot during the school year because I have school Monday – Thursday. I work a lot in the summer so I can save so when I go to school in the fall I can afford to work less hours. That is not a good reason for not updating my blog but it is the true reason.
So I have been thinking a lot about blogs that I would like to be doing. I deffinatly want to do a back to school blog series. Fall is my favorite time of the year so I will deffinetly be having some fashion and beauty essentials up. I want to try to get some more product reviews up and some more fun tags as well. I promise to not neglect my blog like this every again!!!
