Transitional Essentials

Another summer is sadly coming to a close. Where did the time go? I know I've been gearing up for the move back to school and here are a few of my essentials that I CANNOT forget. 
Origins VitaZing Moisturizer- This tiny tube works magic. First off it is great for anyone with super sensitive skin like myself. All organic and hypoallergenic and whatnot. Secondly it moisturizes all day long. And thirdly it gives your skin a gorgeous glow that will have people saying "Oh hey, nice tan!" Not "Oh hey, you look like Snooki!" It's made of natural ingredients, feels natural and best of all looks natural, so what's not to like? 

The Falsies Mascara- This wonderful creation by Maybelline is a keeper. A great mascara for every day use, as you can use it to really amp up your lashes, or wear one coat for a more natural look. I find that it doesn't really clump and that my lashes have never looked more long, luscious and voluminous. 

MAC Lustre Lipstick in Lovelorn- I'm not a huge lipstick girl, but I can officially say that they are growing on me. I recently picked up this MAC lipstick in Lovelorn and it is a beautiful soft pink that can be layered on for a brighter look. I find that it works on so many levels, and best of all it keeps my lips nice and moisturized!

Back In Action

Hello my friends! It has been ages upon ages since I've done a post, but school is upon us sooner than you'd think. Therefore the following may be long and boring but bear with me if you're at all interested in catching up. My summer consisted of an eventful, and utterly eye-opening trip to Costa Rica for a solid 2 and a half months. And let me just say I've never experienced anything like it. Hard to put into words, but what I do know is that 1. I NEED to return in the near future, if not to visit my newfound friends, to visit such a happy country once again. 2. My travels are definitely continuing, with places such as India and Asia on my list. Anyways I highly recommend a trip  to Costa Rica if you haven't already been. 

I also got in some solid family time in Chicago, which is always nice, and not to mention one of my favorite places on the planet. Other than that I've been happily fun-employed (aka unemployed for those not up to date on my lingo), so my days have consisted of working out, tanning in my back yard, and being an avid moksha yoga attendee. It may be a new addiction.  If you haven't tried it out I would say give it a shot, and if you have reservations because of the sweaty hell that bikram was, don't hate on moksha. It may be sweaty, but just trust me when I say it is ten times better. PS! If you sign up now an introductory month is only $40 for unlimited classes, which is a hella good deal. So get on it.

Well thanks for reading my ramblings, and hopefully since school generally forces me into a routine of some sort I can be a bit more attentive to my lonely blog. Until next time.
