Why You Should Get a Beauty Box.
Subscription Box Ramblings

About 3 years ago, I was sitting at work talking to a friend and she pulls out this hot pink metallic package. Of course with my love for anything pink, I was immediately intrigued and needed to know what was inside. That was the moment my life changed forever.

She introduced me to Ipsy.

And it has definitely been a life changer!

Ipsy is a subscription makeup bag and you pay $10 a month. No tax. Free shipping. And you get 5 makeup items every month. This could range from blush, eyeshadows, highlighters, or even to nail polish. You even get to take a quiz to somewhat customize your bags. Sometimes you get sample sizes, but more often than not, you get a full size product.

I have have always been obsessed with makeup and sometimes it get get pricey. But ever since I have subscribed to Ipsy, it has literally saved me so much money. Since I have signed up, the only thing I really ever have to buy is foundation or powder. I literally get everything that I need throughout the year. I even get moisturizers, face masks and eye creams. This is only $120 a year. If I was to buy everything out right, then I would be spending a lot more money.

The great part is that you can cancel or sign back up at any time. There has been moments where I have felt like my makeup collection is just getting too big, so I temporarily cancel it for a few months until I have used some product but then always sign back up. Even with me doing that, I still haven’t had to buy anything else besides foundation.

There are tons of beauty boxes out there. I have also signed up for others in the past such as Beauty Box 5, Lip Monthly, Boxy Charm, Wantable and Birch Box. I have recently signed up for Sephora Play, as well. So far, Ipsy, Lip Monthly and Sephora Play have been my favorites. I may keep them both or I may rotate them out, who knows.

But my point is that if you have a love for makeup like I do, and you are subscribed to a beauty box of some sort, then you are totally missing out!

Sign up for a beauty box or two. Play around with them and see which ones you like. Go ahead, save yourself some money.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
