Hello everyone! I'm always reading something, anything that catches my attention at the time. This year I wanted to read these six books i've been meaning to get off my list for a while. Even though there are A LOT more books I want to read (just check my goodreads) these are some I thought I could read quickly and move on. 

1 // Choker by Elizabeth Woods (Goodreads)
2 // The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern (Goodreads)
3 // Deadly Little Voices by Laurie Faria Stolarz (Goodreads)

4 // Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (Goodreads)
5 // The Giver by Lois Lowry (Goodreads)
6 // The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (Goodreads)

Aside from their pretty covers, these books seem pretty darn good! Some being quick reads and others taking a bit of time. But I know what you're thinking, how the hell haven't I read The Hunger Games yet? The reason: I've been slacking. Every time I go pick it up, I end up reading something else. But this year it wont happen! 

The book I'm reading currently is Allegiant by Veronica Roth which I've also been slacking on due to school but i'm SO close to being finished! What are some books you want to pick up this year? Have you read any on my list?

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;..."

- Clement Clarke Moore

Hello everyone, just here with a quick post wishing you all a very lovely Christmas Eve/Christmas! And well just happy holidays to everyone! Eat lots of cookies and sleep well but most importantly, have a nice time!

Hello everyone, today I bring a mascara review i've been wanting to make for a while now. About a year ago I changed my mascara and started to use Maybelline's Lash Stiletto and ended up really liking it!

I like the way it looks. It gives me length and it doesn't clump up, my eye lashes don't look like spider legs but if you like it that way you can always add another coat. Here I added two coats and I liked the result so left it at that.

Now this is my bare lashes, no mascara. Excuse the bags, they are fabulousss.

Another things I like about this mascara is that after a long day, I don't find residue on my bottom eyelid which is usually a problem.

This mascara is about $8.95 which isn't too bad, they have regular and waterproof but this one is regular. So would I recommend this mascara to anybody? Yes! If you want length, this one is great. It doesn't clump, it gives length, doesn't smudge or flake. If you're looking for a mascara that focuses on making your lashes full, maybe this one won't be your choice. But hey, it looks great!

And this is my annoyed at camera face

Hello everyone! Lately i've been looking around some styles and googled Kate Middleton and Taylor Swift and I just love their styles so I wanted to share some outfits that I really loved. Lets begin!

Taylor Swift seriously has a very cute/edgy sophisticated style and I love it. I love the all black ensemble and also when she matches different colors like the mustard and navy blue shown above.

The second and final style inspiration is Kate Middleton, she has an elegant style and also a very prep style which I find to be very cute. She wears very elegant dresses with lovely accessories and for the prep styles she tends to wear cashmere sweaters and blazers like the ones above!

I really like changing up my style which is why I say I don't exactly have a specific style, I just go with what i'm feeling that day. But I really love both of these girls styles. Which one is your favorite?

Hello everyone! I hadn't been to the mall in a long time since I moved to my uni, so today while I was at my home visiting my family I stopped by the mall and picked up a few things on sale at Bath & Body Works.

I picked up these three scents, they all smelled amazing! I had Paris Amour before, it smells so sweet and I really like it so I got that one again and then I smelled some new ones: A Thousand Wishes and Winter Candy Apple which smell so so great.

They had a buy three get three sale so I bought some with my mother and I also had a coupon that gave us a free item so I chose this lotion same as the perfume (smells heavenly).

Bath & Body Works has some great collections, I love their candles and pretty much everything. Check them out if you haven't, you'll surely find something you like!

Hello everyone! Recently I got tagged by the lovely Emily owner of Daisy Locks to do The Feel Good Tag. Thank you Emily for tagging me! Make sure you check out her lovely blog! This tag is especially nice because it's a nice reminder of the positives. Lets begin!

Name one thing you like about yourself //

I like... that i'm there for others when they need me. Sometimes you're sad and you don't really want to talk about it, so it's nice for someone to be there for you. Whether you're happy, sad, angry it's nice to have someone there for you.

Name two things happening within the next year that you are looking forward to // 

Number one would be turning 19 next year! and number two would be... well I don't know. Any new positive things coming into my life I guess!

Name three things in your life that you are thankful for //

My family, wonderful friends, and well just being able to live every day.

Name four things that never fail to make you smile //

My family being happy, things going an amazing way, my boyfriend's hilarious corny jokes, positive happy people!

Name five things you want to do in your lifetime //

Live somewhere completely new, buy my parents a beautiful home, help others in need, own a library in my future home, build a very cute bookstore/cafe!

Thank you so much Emily for tagging me, If anyone wants to do it please feel free! I hope you enjoyed this little tag. Have the loveliest day!
