In The Age Of Digital Time, You Should Still Invest In A Watch

Time to stop procrastinating remind yourself why real watches are a necessity.

Watches have been used since the 16th century and the evolution of the watch has changed throughout time. If watches have been around for so long and people are continuing to use watches it's no surprise that they're still essential to society, even if you can look at the time whenever you want on your digital devices.

Watches come in all sorts of styles, colors and shapes and are varying price ranges. From watches that cost $20 to watches costing thousands, the prices vary and are cost-effective whether on a tight budget or not. People should own at least one watch, but you'd be surprised how many people I come across in my age group who don't even own one.

Despite electronics saving the day in revealing the time, watches are easier and much quicker. The time is literally with you wearing the watch. It takes literally a second to check the time on the wrist instead of pulling out an electronic device. How big of a pain is this when you're on the packed train and need to check the time, but you can't dig in your bag to grab your phone? Don't pretend you haven't been there.

Watches are more appropriate in settings where you shouldn't have to pull your phone out. Imagine being called out by a supervisor or instructor for checking the phone just to see the time. Save yourself the embarrassment from being called out and invest in a watch.

Watches add style so easily. Wearing one will just elevate any outfit. People will begin to notice your watch and will compliment you if the watch pairs well with the outfit. It makes you look more sophisticated and better put together. Watches signal style and when someone highlights your style, it creates self-confidence.

Therefore, do yourself a favor and if you have not invested in one watch now is the time to do so; watches are timeless.

10 Beauty Products That Will Never Let You Down

Ten beauty products to begin this year on a good note.

I started wearing makeup in seventh grade, and I'm just getting to the point where I'm above average. I'm too scared to do anything adventurous because I know it'll end badly. Ever since then, I've found some items that help me look like I know what I'm doing.

1. Urban Decay-Eyeshadow Primer Potion - $13

This primer is the like the superwoman of all eyelid primers. I've been using it since my sophomore year of high school and it has never let me down once. I could probably run a marathon and my eyeshadow would still be in place, this primer is so good.

2. Thrive Mascara - $24

I have naturally long eyelashes and sometimes mascara can be a struggle. I was using a different mascara for several years that I loved it, but it was a pain to get off of my eyelashes. I took a chance and bought this mascara this summer and have never looked back. Not only does it give me the best volume but it comes off in tubes like fake eyelashes. I will probably never buy a different mascara again.

3. Mario Bedescu-Facial Spray with Aloe, Chamomile and Lavender - $12

There aren't enough words to describe how great this product is. Not only does it smell like lavender fairies are kissing me but it's also such a versatile product. I've it as a refresher after a long day and as a setting spray to make my makeup look more natural.

4. The Balm- Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter - $24

I was first introduced to this highlighter when I wore it for my senior prom. I loved the look of it so much that I texted the person who did my makeup because I had to get it for myself. It's a perfect combination of natural and KAPOW. It's subtle but noticeable at the same time.

5. Becca First Light Primer - $38

It smells just as amazing as it looks. I like this primer because it's not heavy on my skin and just feels like a second layer of lotion. I use this as a primer and as a tinted moisturizer when I am not feeling foundation and it gives my skin a healthy glow.

6. Aveeno Positively Nourishing Calming Body Lotion - $5.74

If I had to smell one thing for the rest of my life, it would be this. Its so calming and I think I would put it all over my body if I could. As my roommate said one time "it smells so nice."

7. Micro Beauty Blenders - $7

When I would use a big beauty blender for concealer it would get all over my face instead of where I wanted it to be. This beauty blender has been a God-send and has made applying concealer so much easier.

8. Colourpop Give To Me Straight Eyeshadow Palette - $16

This eyeshadow palette is not only the cheapest palette I've ever bought but it gives me so many options too. From innocent pinks to matte Rosie colors, I can always find a good combination in this palette.

9. Real Techniques Blend + Blur All Over Brush - $19

Blending is a real struggle with me and sometimes a beauty blender can miss a few mistakes. This brush is not only easy to use but it helps create an even and finished look when I need those last little touch ups.

10.  Wet Brush - $13.99

My hair can be extremely tangled at times and this brush makes it seem like I'm brushing through butter. I use it with wet or dry hair and I never feel like I'm damaging my hair and making the tangles worse.
