13 Things I Actually Want This Christmas

It's not about the toys anymore.

13 Things I Actually Want This Christmas

The good ol' days where I was excited to get some good toys are over, sadly. College students are broke jokes, well some, I happen to be one of those. All I'm saying is, anything and everything is welcome, including...

1. Gift Cards

Gift cards are a great present to give, in case you really don't know what to get me. Though, I'm usually open about pretty much anything.

2. Food

I've been away, I'm hungry. Feed me. (If you cook, even better!)

3. Money

This one is a no brainer, I suppose. I would gladly take the money and just use it towards whatever I need, but it's more meaningful if you get it.

4. Furniture or Dorm Decor

A great beanbag or body pillow would be nice! I can assure you it will be put to use the very same day! I'm always tired.

5. Phone Cases

I am a HUGE phone case freak. I do get tired of them quickly, but I love having my phone nicely covered. I can never have enough phone cases. (iPhone 6+)

6. A Cute Jacket

One jacket is great, but I'll take another one. I hate the winter so I am always cold!

7. A Manicure and Pedicure

College doesn't allow me to take time off to do my nails, so you can just imagine how those look!

8. Fluffy Socks or Scarfs

Remember when I hated getting these as a kid? Forget about it, I'll take them. My favorite part of winter/Christmas are all of the really cute holiday themed socks!

9. Candy/Chocolate

Forget about the calories. Give me some chocolate. I will probably share with you, so it's a win-win.

10. A Good Pair of Headphones

If I got paid to lose headphones, I would be able to afford a new pair by now. Seriously, I lose my headphones all the time. It's like how? I use them everyday. *face-palm*

11. Chap-Stick

I love chap-stick. I recently was given my first Eos lip balm and I love it so much. I use it all the time now. Chapped lips are unattractive, anyway.

12. A Phone Charger

Do you get it? Apple juice? Haha, sorry, my brain is at an all time low with finals! Anyway, we can all agree that Apple needs to come up with better chargers! My goodness, they suck!


You can't really give me this, but if see me sleeping, don't wake me up. It will end up bad for you and no, it's not a threat, it's a warning. I am tired!

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn Playlists
King of Wallpapers

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow
Sorina Bindea

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?

Things to do in October.


Halloween is a fun holiday for everyone of all ages. There are so many fun things to do in the month of October before Halloween and the day of Halloween. I love Halloween especially with all the candy and different types of goodies. Halloween is for everyone that enjoys to be a part of this wonderful holiday and also be careful on Halloween as well. It gives everyone a chance to show what they love to do as well.

A look at the treasure box, seeing what's hidden in the shadow of "Dreams," "Linger," and "Zombie"

The Cranberries Zombie

Aside from the great hits like "Dreams," "Linger," and "Zombie," you may not know many other songs by "The Cranberries." These three songs are played rather frequently, and it would be hard to imagine someone not recognizing at least one of the three. If you haven't, look them up, and then come back and read this list. But as is the case with many bands, those popular singles only scratch the surface.
