Recent Snapshots

January 16, 2015

This week has been so busy! Chock full of planning my classes, visiting my family, organizing some stuff with roommates, and most of all trying to get my head on straight before I start school again! Here's a little peek at some of the things I've been digging into lately.

My gal pal Carly gave me this Twisted Peppermint candle for Christmas, and I've been burning it nonstop ever since. This corner of my desk is one of my favorite spots in my room, and bonus points if you noticed how that painting there matches my blog ;)

I picked up this gorgeous Pietersite ring when I was at the Gem & Jewelry show in Orlando with my mom. It reminds me of an oil painting, and I absolutely love it.

Sometimes you just gotta take a selfie. I took this when I was on my way to campus to pick up my Student ID and have lunch with my lovely friend Le'Andra yesterday.

My latest edivv haul! I traded in some of my unwanted items and got a Tarte Sweet Indulgences palette, Tarte Matte Lipsurgence in Lucky, and LUSH Red Fun. Such a fun and cheap way to get new makeup!

I also got my first box from PetitVour, a vegan beauty subscription box. I'm so happy with the variety of stuff they sent me. Included in the box was a soothing skin cream, a mineral eyeshadow, lavender cream deodorant, and a baby pink nail polish. Let me know if you'd like me to do a full review of the box!

What have you been up to lately?


  1. That ring is so beautiful!! Great photos :) x


  2. Congratulations on starting the rest of your bachelors degree! :D And I totally thought that painting matched your blog perfectly when I first saw it!

  3. I see Cosmos in that ring... It's not a galaxy, is it? xx
