Most Embarrassing Moment

Thursday, November 29, 2012

I haven't answered any of the 30 get to know me questions in awhile so I thought I would do one today!
I am skipping #9 because I just wasn't feeling it
Todays question is..

Most Embarrassing Moment

Oh Gosh.
My most embarrassing moment was when my family & I were in NYC.
We had been walking around all day.
My sister, mom & I were in the elevator on our way up to our hotel room.
My sister & mom were saying something hilarious
& since I hadn't used the bathroom all day I had a full bladder
Laughing hysterically + full bladder = me peeing my pants in the elevator
but wait, it doesn't end their i proceed to pee all the way down the hall way as well.
Thankfully only one person saw me. & I don't think they realized what was happening. 
I'm sure the security watching the cameras in the hotel were having a good laugh though

Let me know some of your embarrassing moments ;)

27 days till Christmas!

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

I am so excited for Christmas this year! 
Lindsey made up these questions & I thought they were perfect for getting into the holiday spirit! 

Do you start your Christmas shopping on Black Friday or wait until the last minute?
I start mine on Black Friday! Waiting till the last minute stresses me out. I do go and get a few last minute things but I usually have most of my shopping done sooner. 

If you could be in any Christmas movie what would it be?
ELF! It is my favorite Christmas movie ever.

Which do you like better: Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?
I like both. I love Christmas Eve because my family & I have fun traditions but i love Christmas day because well its Christmas day! 

When does your family put up your Christmas tree and who decorates it?
Usually on Thanksgiving we put up the tree. My mom decorates it. 
When my siblings & I were little we would decorate it & then the next day my mom would take it down & re decorate it! We would be so mad! 



White lights or colored lights?
White lights because they are so classic.

Are you guilty at peeking at your presents or do you like the surprise?
As a kid I was totally guilty of peeking. Now that I am older I love the surprise! 

Would you rather live in a gingerbread house or in Santa's Workshop?
Santa's Workshop! Who needs gingerbread men when you have Santa and elves!

Tell us your Christmas Eve traditions!
On Christmas Eve night we go out to a super nice restaurant in Atlanta. Then we take a carriage ride and look at all the lights!  Then when we come home we all get into are matching Christmas pajamas and watch Scrooge.



If you could be under the mistletoe with anyone who would it be?
Channing freaking Tatum

What tops your tree?
a gold star 

Can you name the 12 days of Christmas?
5 golden rings. 2 turtle doves. 3 french hens. & a partridge in a pear tree. no idea if these are right!

Have you ever gone Christmas caroling?
Never. But I think it would be fun to do.

Do you countdown to Christmas? If so, how many days are left?
27 days! 

What are some foods and treats you can count on having every holiday season?
christmas cookies
Eggnog shakes

How has Christmas kept its magic for you as you've grown older?
Just being with my family & seeing all the holiday lights

November Favorites

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

My work week begins today. I'm not sure how I feel about this.
My wallet is thanking me though. All those cyber Monday emails reeled me in! 
I was planning on buying Christmas presents for friends/family
but
ended up buying one thing for my sister and the rest of the stuff I bought was all for myself!

Today I am going to share with you my favorites from this month. I'm glad this month is almost over.
Bring on December!

Beauty Favorites:
I don't have many beauty favorites this month. I tried to just use what I had & not buy any more make up! 



L'oréal 24hr infallible eye shadow in iced latte- I have literally worn this every single day this month. Sometimes I wear it alone or i add another color in my crease. Either way I love this. It makes me look more awake & it is such a gorgeous color. 

L'oréal BB Cream in Light- I wanted a drugstore bb cream for the days I didn't feel like wearing foundation. This does a good job at hiding most of my imperfections. 

theBALM Whats your type? "the body builder" black mascara- I got this mascara in my October Ipsy bag & its the only mascara I have used all month. I love this mascara so much I don't even need to use a second mascara when I use this. It lengthens my lashes and my lashes aren't clumpy.
theBalm recently had a flashsale on Hautelook so I picked another one up!

Dove nourishing oil care detangler- I used to use a Paul Mitchell detangler/leave in conditioner but was running out & didn't feel like paying the big bucks for a detangler. I picked this up & it works just as good if not better! And it was only like $3 at Walmart compared to the $20 i would of paid at Paul Mitchell

Random Favorites: 

Song(s)



white fudge covered oreos- they are so good

Cranberry Frost Febreze- I'm obsessed with my room/bathroom smelling good so I always have a candle burning but this month I reached more for this.

Lastly, I have been loving all the Hallmark Christmas movies they are playing! 

What have some of your favorites been this month?

Tuesday's Tunes

Leslyn's Lovely Life


 Somebody's Heartbreak-Hunter Hayes 
I have no idea how I just heard of this a couple days ago but I have been listening to it non stop ever since


Mistletoe-Justin Bieber
Did y'all catch his interview with Oprah on Sunday? I recorded it & need to watch it asap.
I will be listening to this every day from now until Christmas

5 for Five!

Monday, November 26, 2012


I found this cool link up & decided I need to do it
Hopefully, it will keep my accountable for what I need to get done this week!


                                                    PartyOfOne

My 5 goals for the week:
1. Have a new blog post up every day this week
I've been totally slacking & haven't been posting as much as I used to. Work & School have been super busy but things are starting to slow down so hopefully I can start blogging regularly again. 

2. Email my Grandma
This sounds like a super easy thing to do but I haven't done it in a couple weeks! Every time I sit down to do so, I get caught up in other emails.

3. Start studying for finals
I am a total procrastinator. I hate that I'm like that because I end up having mini freak outs since I waited so long to study. This time I want to start studying earlier! 

4. Clean my closet
I have been needing to do this for about 3 weeks now. Its time. 

5. Organize my make up drawers
I don't even know what I have because my little drawers I got from Target are overflowing!
I need some make up storage ideas pronto!
Hopefully I can accomplish all or at least most of these

Weekend Update

I hope everyone had a great thanksgiving/weekend! 
I have today off and I honestly have no idea how I am going to get back in the school/work swing. I am not looking forward to it what so ever.

I'm linking up with Sami for a Weekend Update
                                                         

Thursday
I had such a relaxing Thanksgiving. My family & I decided not to go anywhere this year & just have Thanksgiving at home.
Its a tradition in my family to wake up & watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade. 
Then we put up the Christmas tree & watch football
We had dinner at 6:30
& I don't have ANY pictures of Thanksgiving at all!
My family & I never get dressed up we just stay in our "comfys" 

Friday
I don't participate in Black Friday
I wait till Cyber Monday! Which is today & I am so excited!
I plan on getting all my families Christmas gifts today or at least most of them
I didn't do anything Friday. I just relaxed & watched a bunch of Christmas movies!

Saturday
My family & I went to see Skyfall. It was really good, but they could have made it a lot shorter! 
source

Sunday
I went to Target to get a few make up items that I am going to be doing reviews on! 
& my sister and I had a little photo session in the backyard!



Have a great Monday :)

Weekend...Update?

Monday, November 19, 2012

I'm trying to figure out something fun I did this weekend and the only "excitement" I can think of is on Friday I took my sister to get her wisdom teeth out. 
Thats it...
Unless you count Thursday night when I went to see Breaking Dawn Part 2
Which was amazing in case you didn't hear..which I'm sure you did if you went on twitter
Other then that I was in hibernation the rest of the weekend. I didn't go out once.
Saturday
 I napped, painted my nails, napped, ate, watched christmas movies on abc family, and napped some more
Confetti in Just Dancin 
Sunday
Oh Sunday was even worse then Saturday
I had a total grunge day
I napped, I procrastinated BIG time on writing my paper that was due that night
I napped again and swore that after I would write my paper
Of course that didn't happen thanks a lot pinterest
Finally finished my paper around 8 which I was actually surprised I even finished it that early
And that my friends was my oh so exciting weekend update
Hope I didn't bore you to tears!
