My Christmas Wishlist

Here are a few items on my Christmas wishlist this year:
It's not very exciting because the other things I want are more apartment/living related, such as a knife set and a blender

  • Philosophy Amazing Grace Gift Set  - I absolutely adore this scent by philosophy and would some more products from this line
  • Michael Todd Sensitive Skin Discovery Kit - I have heard great things about Michael Todd and have always want to try some of his products
  • Tiffany's Heart Tag Pendant - Who doesn't want this? I only have one necklace by Tiffany's but have always wanted the Tiffanys Heart Tag Pendant necklace.
  • Keurig - I currently have a boring coffee maker and I think this would more practical because I live by myself
  • Lush Products - I want some bath bombs and other skin care products to try out
  • Target Gift Card - I constantly shop at Target and this would only make me shop there more
  • Starbucks Gift Card - Need I say more? I only go to Starbucks once and a while because it's a little pricy and I try to avoid all the calories in the drinks

What's on your wishlist?


What I've Been Watching Lately #1

This post is inspired by http://www.elevatormusik.com/

While Pretty Little Liars, Downton Abbey and other shows I watch are on hiatus I have spent some time watching the two above shows.
The Walking Dead - I have been solely watching this on Netflix and am almost finished with Season 3. The battle royale between the Prison and the Woodbury is very interesting and I'm curious what direction the show is going in. Also, the video game by Tell Tale Games is phenomenal!
Ravenswood - This is a spinoff of Pretty Little Liars on ABC Family and I love it! It is about the town, Ravenswood, and its legendary curse. Caleb from Pretty Little Liars is the main character, along with five others. The "finale" was creepy and may reveal even more about the town itself and its connection to Pretty Little Liars. Who else thinks the little girl is creepy??


My new camera!

So my little Canon Powershot point and click camera isn't working properly all of a sudden and isn't taking good quality videos anymore. I've had that camera for over two years and I decided to take the plunge and order a new camera. So I ordered the Canon Powershot SX50 from Amazon last night. It was a rather expensive purchase but it will be totally worth it! This is pretty much my early Christmas present to myself. My next purchase will be a new tripod, which I am going to pick over the weekend! I cannot wait to have better quality blog pictures and youtube videos!

No Buy November!

Please forgive me as I am fighting off yet another cold...

So I know I am a little late on this bandwagon but I decided to jump on the no-buy november train! I have done challenges like this in the past and have succeeded! The goal of this no-buy is to stop buying more of what you don't need and start using what you already have in your makeup collection! I personally know I have quite the stash of nail polishes and eye liners, so it's time to start using up those products. The only rule I have is that I can replenish the "basics" ie deodorant and makeup wipes. This will also be a challenge as every brand under the sun is releasing their holiday sets and you just want to buy it all! I only have 19 days left, do you think I can meet the challenge?


MIA Blogger

Wow, I haven't blogger in forever! I have been so busy over the last week with a project at work, I barely have had time to do anything! I hope to be back in the blogging routine soon! Love you guys!
