If there are two things you should know about me, it's the fact that I love Disney and Harry Potter. So I went to see the movie last weekend, and I honestly have to say, It was amazing! The songs were written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, which is the guy who wrote the famous Broadway show Hamilton, so the entire soundtrack is amazing. The movie scenes and characters are all beautiful and amazing. The plot was so cute.

I've been listening to the songs on repeat since I saw the movie, and I love it more and more every time! I recommend that you guys watch it.


Have an amazing week guys!

While my funk is starting to pass, I can honestly say that the election has taken a toll on my mental health. I was so hopeful that the election wasn't going to turn out the way it did. I still remember the night of the election when I saw that Trump was getting all these electoral votes from all of these states. My heart sank deeper and deeper. The country has been in a bit of chaos since. I honestly don't understand how a man that supposedly goes against what America believes in could represent and lead our country. There have been protests going on all around me, and it's crazy, for a lack of a better word. I've never seen the country so divided. I'm honestly a little scared for minority groups. I'm hoping for the best. We'll see what happens...


have a great day/night guyss

So last Saturday I got my hair dyed. I had such a terrible experience a few months back, so I haven't dyed my hair since! One of my friends from back in middle school, does hair now, and she offered to fix my hair. It was honestly such a great experience. It was nice catching up with her, and the salon was absolutely beautiful. We did spend almost 5 hours doing my hair, but it came out beautiful. In a few months my hair is going to be good as new.

Also, my brother's in the navy, based in Connecticut, but they used to never let him have any days off. Recently he's been having at least one day a weekend off, so he's been driving down a lot. It's been amazing. We're really close, so it's really nice to have him around.

I have some other exciting new, but I still have to wait a few weeks before announcing it, so you'll just have to wait!

I hope you guys are having an amazing day/night.

So the other day, I watched the movie Inferno, and it was alright, but not as good as Angels and Demons or The Da Vinci Code. I was doing some research and found out that for whatever reason, they made the movies in a different order than the books that they were based on. Last Friday I picked up a copy of Angels and Demons by Dan Brown. I've read a few of the chapters and I honestly loved them so far. I am so excited to finish reading it. So if you guys want to read along with me, you guys totally can! I will definitely give you guys an update when I finish reading the book. I will give you all my thoughts, and then tell you what I was planning on reading next.


Have an amazing day/night!

Originally, I didn't think that I was going to write about the election coming up in a few weeks, but after this final debate, I realized I should. So for those of you that are not informed about this year's election in the United States we have Donald Trump vs. Hilary Clinton. 

Donald Trump has been saying that he was going to run for president for years. I feel no one really took him seriously until he started gaining traction last year! To make matters worse, most of his competitors weren't that great. I think there was one that had potential. On the democratic side, Bernie Sanders was the big competitor against Hilary Clinton. I honestly wish that he had the chance to be president, because he was honestly amazing and I think he has the best interest for the country at heart. Unfortunately, that didn't happen, and it's between Hilary and Trump. 

About two weeks ago, some scandalous videos of Trump got out. It includes him saying these terribly rude and outrageous things. He chalks it all up to "locker room talk/boy talk", but it is disgusting. Since then multiple women have come out and spoken about the inappropriate things he's done to them. Now, even before he was running for president I didn't personally like him much. 

To make matters worse, he's considered to be a racist, he has no experience at all in politics, and he doesn't respect women. I honestly don't understand why he has so many people supporting him. It is clearly obvious who is better suited for the role of president. I'm a little frustrated.

​Last weekend I went apple picking, and it was so freezing during night time. This week is surprisingly really warm. Today it went to the mid 80's! I was honestly going to wear shorts today. Sadly, I put most of my shorts away already. It was honestly such a beautiful day, but it's crazy to get this kind of weather in the northeast before Halloween! I always have to travel with a jacket, because I don't know how the weather is going to end up!

This weekend coming up is Halloween weekend, and I am so soo excited. I have a 4 day celebration lined up. I'm going to New York City for two of the days. I have such a fun group of friends I'm going with, and I'm so excited to dress up. I will post pictures of my outfits probably next week! If anyone wants any ideas for Halloween, let me know!

I hope you guys all have an amazing Halloween!

So this week I wanna talk about some products that I can't live without. I like to wear full faced makeup on an almost daily basis, and therefore really need to take extra care of my skin. These are 4 face products I can't live without. I am going to talk about each product from left to right.

​The first product I honestly love is the Mario Badescu Oil Free Moisturizer. I have only been using this product for about a month and a half and I honestly love it. I have mixed skin type so while my skin is usually very dry, especially with the changing of the seasons, if I over-moisturize then my skin gets really oily. This moisturizer is amazing because I only need a little bit, and my skin feels great. I usually put it on right before bed so when I wake up my skin absorbs all the lotion. It also has SPF, so when it gets sunny I'm probably going to use it as an all-day lotion.

The second product is the Mario Badescu Facial Spray. This product I have been using for over a year. I have to say that this is one of my all time favorite products ever. I use this before I do my makeup, after I do my makeup, before I go to bed, etc. It makes my face feel so refreshed. Whenever I feel my face needs a boost, I spray some on. This is meant for all skin types. You can get this product at Ulta! I honestly recommend so much.

The third one is the Mario Badescu Seaweed Cleansing Lotion. I've been using this product for the same amount of time I've been using the Rose Spray. This is a product I use at night. If I didn't wear makeup that night this is my stand alone product. My skin feels so clean and light. I honestly love it.

The last product I use is the Pond's Cold Cream Cleanser. I've been using this product for years. It's a cheap drugstore cleanser, that I use as a makeup remover. This cleanser doesn't give me pimples or anything. It gets all my makeup off really quickly which I love. I've only tried a few makeup remover products, but I honestly like to say that between this and my makeup wipes, this product is really good.

So before I end this post, I have to mention that I am not sponsored by any companies. I realized as I was writing this that a lot of the face products I use are from the company Mario Badescu. If there's anything you guys wanna read about let me know! 

Hope you have a great night/day!
