That Time When Finals Ate My Life

Hello! I am alive! And I've been dying to blog, I swear, it' I know, lame excuse, plenty of people go to school or have jobs and still manage to blog, but seriously, it's the start of finals, meaning I really need to 180 my lazy 'tude and start cranking out the papers. Therefore, up until about next Friday my blogging is going to be a bit sporadic and random BUT still awesome and entertaining and aimed at being fantastic. Bueno? 

So, what has been the apple of my eye these days? There are few things I've been obsessing over as of late, oddly enough makeup is one of them! I really don't enjoy wearing a lot of makeup (I'm more into the natural look), but I really like watching people put it on...that sounds creepy and voyeuristic. I just mean that observing a good makeup artist is like watching a really skilled painter, only the art ends up on a two inch space on her face. I've been really into the blog Dulce Candy lately for this reason, and I suggest taking a peak. Also, from her blog, I've found some really cool suggestions for potential stocking stuffers or cute gifts for friends (or yourself).

Because everyone needs a good nude lip color and an outrageous Barbie pink one! Also Nyx has really good reviews across the board AND it's super cheap (6$ for a tube of this stuff!). The other thing I've been really torturing myself with is just staring at pictures of beautiful color-blocked sparkly shoes...yes please!

ASOS Pelican Platform Toe Car Print Block Heels
ASOS Hush Color Blocked Bow Platform Sandal

ASOS Hysteric Glitter Platform High Sandals
ASOS Sonya Bow Toe Cap Mary Jane Shoes
ASOS Pace Suede Double Strap Platform High Shoe

I just think they bring a really cool new flavor to a classic holiday party outfit. If I could get one, I'd have to go with the Hamptons. I mean, how gorgeous would they look with a chic Little Black Dress on New Year's? Well, hopefully you'll be hearing from me soon, blogging is such a great outlet for me, I really do plan on writing sooner than later. What's on your Christmas list this year? Time to start thinking about it! The holiday season is upon us. I'll leave you off with a classic (a.k.a NOT the Biebes' version)...

Ciao for now xx
