I hate the feeling of anything on my skin. I NEVER put anything on it... no face lotion or liquid foundation. Maybe just some Proactive here and there if I start to break out but other than that... NADA. If I do have a special occasion to go to then I'll use some light face powder. I recommend Smashbox's Halo Hydrating Perfect Powder. It is amazing!! It's so light yet it offers the right amount of coverage. You can find the face powder at all Sephora stores for $60. It's pricey but definitely worth it. 

So considering that I hate putting anything on my skin... yesterday my girlfriend gave me a few Kiehl's sample s for a face serum and moisturizer which I was never thinking of ever using. I was bored last night, however, so I ended up trying them out. Gosh... when I woke up the next morning my face was amazingly soft!!! It felt like baby skin! I went to Kiehl's today with the goal of buying the serum right away but the kind sales lady recommended a different type of night serum and eye lotion to try. She gave me some new samples which I put on a hour ago. So far so good!! My skin is so soft!

I'm pretty sure that I want to buy these products but I decided to do my research on "night serums" anyways. I came across a brand found at Sephora called Dr. Brandt. Apparently, this serum contains retinol which will make your skin firmer, softer and brighter. This one is more expensive than the Kiehl's products, but the reviews on the Sephora website sound pretty convincing to me. I have samples of the Dr. Brandt serum from before and so I'll try those out in a few days. I'll post which one is better in a few days :D


So a few months ago I wrote a post about how I had just moved into a new house and was in the process of redecorating my room. WELL.... it's been months now and my lazy self has not finished that room yet... and I have already decided to re-decorate what I have done so far!! My room currently has light beige walls with white furniture and some grey and dark purple accents. It's starting to bore me. I'm planning to paint my room a dark purple and use lacey and ruffle accents. Kind of like a romantic-ish theme.My goal is to get my room done before the start of school (middle of August). Let's see how far I make it!!

I already ordered these frames from Etsy.com to put on the wall behind my bed. I love them!
They are repainted white by hand and came to $160 with shipping and tax. 

I want to have white bed sheets with lots of pillows on them! 
I really like the ruffled pillow and I think having an embroidered M pillow would be cute
All of these pillows I found on Etsy.com from random sellers

I love these key dresser knobs! However, I don't have any use for them in my room 

Oh my goodness I need to start organizing my vanity dresser. Currently
all of my makeup is scattered on top of it.
This vanity tray is so cute and it's from urbanoutfitters.com

I need to get rid of the ugly light/fan thing that came with my room.
A chandelier would be perfect for my room!
