I’ve been gone for awhile, haven’t I? I got really sick, is the thing; I had mono and tonsillitis! Yuck, I know. During that time I went through a hard time both physically and emotionally. I became severely depressed. I felt like no matter what I did, I just couldn’t get out of bed or leave the house. Maybe the sun was too bright to match my mood, or I felt lost when I stepped outside, like I had nowhere to be, no one to meet. I’ve also had issues with my dating life, which actually doesn’t exist right now. Or ever, that is. For a long time this has made me sad and left out. After all, all my best friends have been in serious relationships, but I haven’t. Seeing this made me just…upset. But it’s 2015 and I’m facing the new year with some new perspectives.
I know as 20-somethings, or just humans in general, we face some dark places within ourselves we never wanted to face. Sometimes, though, it’s necessary to realize we don’t want to look at that for the rest of our lives. I know I sure don’t.
I think 2015 is going to be the best yet, and in some ways it has to be because nothing else exists! 2014 and before is all a memory, and whatever lies ahead has yet to happen. I’m going to try my best to make each day count because if I want to find satisfaction, I have to do it in the moment that exists now! I hope, if you’re reading this, you’re okay and healthy and you’re on a path to loving yourself and your life. I’m going to attach a song that has helped me to cry out the sadness! 🙂

Mario Badescu Facial Spray
Hey guys! So recently I picked up this Mario Badescu Facial Spray at Urban Outfitters. It was an impulse buy because my skin is super dry and I was looking for something to soothe it. Well, I’m SO GLAD I bought this! Not only is it a natural product (it’s made of rose-water and herbal extracts) but it has tons of uses. The first way I use it is as an after-shower spray. It really soothes that tight, pulled feeling that skin gets after getting out of a hot shower. Since I usually shower before bed, I let the spray dry and then put my nighttime moisturizer over it. When I wake up, my skin looks and feels amazing!
Another great way to use this is to spray before and after applying makeup–especially if you like a dewy, glowy finish to your skin. Seriously, it works wonders! And best of all, it doesn’t make your skin “oily” feeling or looking. It dries pretty instantly and makes you look well-rested and youthful.
I would honestly give this product a 10/10. And for only $7.00, I would buy it again and again! I picked it up at my local Urban Outfitters, but it’s also widely available online and I (think), at Ulta. Give it a try. I promise you won’t regret it!
**Warning: If you don’t like a light fragrance, this MIGHT not be for you!
Okay, So I know Christmas is still kind of far away. But that doesn’t stop me from dreaming! These are some of the things on my wish-list this year, though I’ll realistically only ask for two or three, and save up for the rest myself. If I still want these things by the time I get the money, that is! My absolute must-have are the graphic sweatshirt (which I’m planning on customizing with a funny logo), the Giorgio Armani Si perfume, and the Cathy Kidston bag. The rest I can technically do without. Haha! What’s on your wishlist this season? It’s never too early to dream…
