Weekly Wrap Up

I feel like this week can be pretty much wrapped up as either Spring Break YEAH WOOO, aka I worked every day of the week!

Monday and Tuesday were spent working and setting up shop at Vera!

Wednesday was my day off, and I'm lazy so I didn't really do anything.

Thursday through Sunday were all spent working!

March Love in a Box Blogger Swap!

I love swaps... SO MUCH! They're an amazing way to connect with other bloggers (and always an awesome excuse to go to Target.. right?!). One swap I'm a part of is the Love in a Box Blogger Swap! It's a monthly swap hosted by Kim from Kimberlys Chronicle and Megan from Lush to Blush. More information for the swap can be found right here!

This March I was paired up with the fabulous Kim, from Kimberly's Chronicle! Her blog is so much fun and she has a really cute cat so you basically need to go read her blog RIGHT now.

She sent me some fantastic goodies!

Not pictured: These three beautiful colors of twine she sent me! My baby kittens got to it first! 

Kim sent me a wonderful candle! I love it so much! Sweet pea is one of my favorite floral scents! I also got an awesome headband that I plan on wearing to work this week! She also sent me a make up bag which is currently holding some nailpolishes! She also helped feed my nailpolish addiction by sending me a gorgeous pink polish from Nicole by OPI and some Sally Hansen Kwik Dry!

I'm so excited to be a part of this swap every month and cannot thank Kim enough for the fantastic goodies I received!

Come join us this month! :)

So, I don't believe in being a bad blogger. I just believe in the fact I wasn't being bad by not posting, I was just being my usual lazy self. 

I had spring break this past week, instead of soaking it up down in Florida, I was helping set up the brand new Vera store!

I also received my so much fun stuff in the mail! I got my two mug swap packages! The mugs were so pretty! Next week is going to be full of reveal postings! 

I also received my Love in a Box from Kim and it was so beautiful and amazing! Can't wait to show you guys!

I also got a Uni Vox Box, which I've dived into a bit!

I also got my easter basket swap box, so I'm going to be super busy showing you all the lovely things you ladies have sent me! :)

Sorry this was literally the LAMEST post I have ever written, but I'm not dead. I'm still here. Just... lazy.

Idk, that was from the summer.

what i did for st. patricks day even though it's saturday and that happened monday.

Howdy! As you guys know, I wanted to celebrate St. Patricks day this year. I didn't go cray or anything, but I did get my first ever green beer (and later switched to green angry orchards cuz I couldn't handle the green beer).

My dad ended up taking my boyfriend and I out because in Ohio, you're allowed to drink in public as long as your legal guardian is there with you.. so yay bars!!!

I also got a St. Patricks day cake earlier in the week and I painted my nails green!

The beautiful cake I bought.

Look at all that green lovelyness!

I took a picture with a Killians apparently.

The boo and I, and of course, a bathroom selfie! 


My 21st birthday is coming up next month! April 29th! I really want to do some kind of giveaway, so if anyone is interested, please shoot me an e-mail and we can figure out what we want to do!

Her Campus Spring Break Survival Kit!

This post is sponsored by HCBN, I received the items in exchange for a review. All opinions, of course, are my own!

When I got the exciting opportunity to receive the Her Campus Spring Break Survival Kit, I jumped at the chance! I was so excited when I went home to a huge box with my name on it!

I opened it and the items it included were...

- Neuro Sleep Drink

This stuff was awesome! The flavor is Mellow Mango and it is so yummy! Neuro also surprised us and sent us two cases of Neuro Sleep! Neuro also threw in a really cute eye sleep cover! I've been using the drink for the past couple of nights and my sleep has totally improved! I'm feeling very well rested, and not groggy in the morning. I always feel groggy when I just take melatonin, so this is an improvement!

-TRESemmé 7 Day Keratin Smooth System

I actually don't apply heat to my hair, like ever. So my mom tested this one and she loves it! She is going out and buying the full size product! Her hair has been so silky and smooth!


Chipotle sent us a couple coupons for free chips and guac and a free burrito! I managed to wait for spring break to use them, so look out for insta pics!

-ZOTOS Biotera Ultra Color Care 5-in-1 Cleansing Conditioner

I used this last night and my hair feels amazing! It's so smooth and soft!  I love this and they sent a whole bunch so I'll be set for the next couple of months!

- European Wax Center

I got a handful of coupons for European Wax Center. I actually have to wait to use these babies, since our European Wax Center, is in the process of opening!

-Yokini Swimwear

We also got a coupon for an adorable swimwear site that has Yoga Bikini Bottoms that you can customize! How cool, right?!

Her Campus also threw in some cute goodies! We got a couple coozies, a cup, sunnies and a decal!

I just loved everything and hope that HerCampus sends me another package sometime soon!

I've been ignoring y'all.

I guess last week, I just really decided not to post much of anything. So heres a little update on my life in what happened last week

Monday: I had my job interview for Vera!!! Exciting stuff!

Tuesday: I went to class, went out to dinner with two of my friends, and finally bought Gravity and Katniss (aka Hunger Games: Catching Fire) on bluray.

Wednesday: I got some more upsetting news.. I literally can't have a happy week apparently. But, I ended up going over and hanging out with my mom and dad. We made inside out burgers! I also bought a St. Patricks Day Cake!

Thursday:  Had a major emotional breakdown and could not handle myself for a couple hours. I also sat and chained watched Weeds. My life, right? The best part of this day was... I GOT THE JOB! After panicking for like a week, I finally got it!

Friday: Of course, I had to celebrate new job.. So I got a pair of sparkly toms and new Vera Bradley bag.

Saturday & Sunday: These were both practically the same.. I worked a double both days. I also quit one of my jobs, so uh.. GO ME? 

Your weekly cat picture is Griffin! He looks hella grumpy in this picture, but he's always kind of mad so I guess it works, right?

confess sess.

Hey there kids! Linking up with Kathy from Vodka and Soda for her humpday confessions!

Let's get this started...


that I've been pretty much obsessing over college a cappella groups for like.. the past couple of days. a couple girls in choir and me have been talking about starting one so FINGERS crossed that it'll be as kick-ass as the amazing groups out there.

i'm pretty much flipping out over whether or not I'm getting this job or not. I'm supposed to find out today, but I mean I haven't gotten a call yet... SO. IDK. Please Vera Gods, look down on me and grant me a position in your store.

that winter storm vulcan, despite it's awesome name is the lamest it could be in akron. like please, if it's gonna be snowing in march at least make it bad enough for me to have a snow day. if not, just forget about it and go home. live long and prosper, y'all. 

i really need to make a button for my little nail polish blog, but of course my laziness trumps all and i have not done so yet. or i mean, if someone wants to be really nice and design me something really cute, please do. thanks.

okay, so freaking out til i get a call or not. bye bye.

So, last night. I watched the movie Gravity. 


Space is freaking scary. 

But, you really need to go out and rent it or buy it an watch it. It was SO good. 


I'm wearing Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Quick Sand!

wrapping up zeus.

This week had its ups and downs that for sure. I'm hoping this week is a happy week, and it totes will be if I get this job! -fingers crossed forever-

Monday: Monday, monday, monday. I can never remember what I do on Mondays. Except, write my weekly wrap up post. I know I went out to eat with Jake and my dad, and then went shopping after.. Everything else is a blur like usual.

Tuesday: Tuesday? I stayed at home cuz I was being all sad and mopey, but I managed to get my ass up and go to work. So, I mean, I accomplished one thing. I also started my weekly link up which y'all need to link up your manicures tomorrow with me!

Wednesday: I went and got Panera Bread with my mom for lunch, then she had to go to Ash Wednesday, so I made dinner for my dad and boyfriend later on! It was quite alright! 

Thursday: Thursday night, my mom usually takes me out to dinner since my dad works late. This time she took us to Steak and Shake which was super yummy and good! 

Friday: Uhm uhm uhm, I worked? YEAH, that sounds right. Then I went over to my friends house and caught up since she is home for spring break! 

Saturday: I worked, then my mom and I went and found me a outfit for my interview! Yay Target!!! We also went to Olive Garden afterwards which was of course, magical.

Sunday: On Sunday, I also worked of course. Then Jake and I went grocery shopping! My dad also had me pick up some stuff for him which included cat food and cat litter, so I looked like the crazy cat lady that I already am and I bought 3 things of cat litter along with SO much cat food. Oh my goodness..

I also wrapped up Zeus, for the weekly wrap up!

10 things you maybe don't know about me.

Ten things some of y'all might know about me.

1: I used to be a really big band geek, like I though band was the BEST and nothing would ever be able to top it. No clue why I was so obsessed since I SUCKED at any instrument I tried to play. So yeah, I eventually discovered that Band was okay at best, and life out side of high school is way better.

2: Jake is actually my first legit boyfriend. Sure, I had plenty of boys I talked to, but he is the first one I ever actually dated!

3: I have a whole heck of a lot of patience. Working at an amusement park, Starbucks, and with kids all day long will do that to you!

4: Sometimes I feel like having kittens is like have toddlers. They cry for food and attention, make messes, and put things in their mouths they shouldn't. 

5: I'm actually really into sci-fi. I think it's such a fun genre to watch! Plus the old ones with their special effects are so hilarious!

6: There are apparently a lot of movies (according to my roommates) that I haven't seen and they don't understand how I haven't.

7: I can't wash dishes with out almost throwing up. It's weird. 

8: I like reading crime reports and arrests in my town to see who I went to HS with that got arrested. Yeah, I'm a freak. Sometimes, my mom even checks if any of her past students got arrested.

9: I think I'm a shopping addict. I can't go into Target with out buying something little, I literally could just be a loofah or a chap stick but it wont be a complete trip if I don't get anything.

10: I worry people hate me if they don't text me back right away. I told you, I'm a freak.

That time I started another blog...

Don't worry, I'm still going to blog here just as much as I usually do, BUT! I have a little side project! 

I finally started a nail polish blog! I really just needed somewhere to document all the colors I have in my collection, so whenever I have extra time I'll add some colors to it! 

I posted my first swatch tonight so, it would be so dear if you guys could go look at it and tell me what else I can do to make the next one amazing!

Also, the layout and pages are obviously under construction, if you want a quick laugh, go ahead and look at those pages! :)

humpday confessions

Hey lovelies! Whats up?! I'm linking up with Kathy from Vodka and Soda for her weekly humpday confessions! 

As told by Toddlers and Tiaras Gifs

I confess that...

Yesterday, I legit had a meltdown because the Target website wasn't working for a hot second.. Yeah, I don't know what caused that but I was freaking out, messaging my best friend who works with computers to help me. Yeah, eventually it worked and I calmed down.. Thank god, right? 

This is super lame, but if any of you know me. I don't drive. Well, my ass drove on the highway for the first time ever today and NOPE, NEVER AGAIN. I'm hiring a driver.

I really haven't wanted to get out of my bed lately. I just sleep all the time and it's really horrible, but I just lay in bed, cuddle with my cats, and watch tv. Probably not okay, but I guess whatever make me feel less sad is kind of okay, right?

I've been spending WAAAAAAY too much money at Target...

Love y'all! <3
