Fashion Faves: Brittany from Glee

If you like fashion and TV, well then you should keep reading and/or check out my previous Celebspiration on Silver from 9O21O here. This time I really wanted to show my appreciation for the lovely yet crazy Brittany S. Pierce from one of my favorite shows, Glee.

 
Let me start this by acknowledging how amazing this girl is. She's definitely one of my favorites on the show. She's hilarious, weird, insane, talented, and has great fashion sense.

College Haul!

I am so excited to be moving away and off to college in a couple of weeks. I'll be attending a community college for two years before transferring to a 4-year university. So instead of moving into a dorm right away (which was my original intention; I was planning on starting out a 4-year school but things changed) I'll be moving into my very first apartment! Yay! It'll be just a tiny studio to start off with because where I'm going rent is crazy high. Anyway, I titled this post College Haul instead of Apartment Haul because I didn't want to exclude reader who are moving into a dorm in the fall. Almost everything I'll be buying is used for apartments and dorms alike. I will be buying kitchen and bathroom stuff, though, which standard dorms usually do not require.

 
I have only purchased a few things so far but still wanted to share with you guys in case you're going off to college as well and maybe aren't sure what to get. The next time I go shopping and buy more stuff I'll be sure to do a part two (or however many parts it will take).

I will say where I got these items but I wont put links because I find that a lot of things are in the store but not online and vice versa. Shopko was (technically still is but today is the last day) having a huge summer sale type thing were literally almost every single item in the store was discounted, most of them greatly. I found this to be the perfect opportunity to start my college shopping and save a ton! So here's what I bought:

Awesome YouTuber: Olga Kay!

I did a previous post about one of my all-time favorite YouTubers Shane Dawson (which you can read here) and thought I would continue this trend by discussing another great person of the Internet: Miss Olga Kay.
 
I discovered Olga through Shane Dawson (shocker) almost 4 years ago now. So I've been watching her videos for quite some time. Similar to Shane, I prefer to watch her vlogs more than any other type of video; I find them the most entertaining.

Bath & Body Works Eau de Toilette Moonlight Path

I apologize in advance for the poor quality pictures. I really don't have a good place to take pics at nor do I have very good lighting. But don't worry, I'm working on it! Anyway, I really wanted to do a post on one of my favorite BBW scents: Moonlight Path.


This lovely fragrance was one of my very first from BBW (first one being Japanese Cherry Blossom). I got this as a Christmas gift and immediately fell in love.

NerdMania: L.A. Noire

Now, I'm not one for the massively played, online multiplayer, magical or mindless killing games (not that GTA isn't about killing but there's more to it - I'll talk about that game another time). I've always been into the mission-based games with a storyline. My all-time favorite game production company is Rockstar Games and my top four favorite games come from these geniuses. One of them is L.A. Noire.

This game was released in June of 2011. I remember actually getting up really early to get to Target as they opened so I could get my hands on it. I was only 17 at the time so they wouldn't let me buy it and I had them hold it for my mom to go pick it up later :( but I digress.

Fashion Faves: Silver from 9O21O

So I wanted to start a new 'series', if you will, where I post my favorite fashions or even makeup looks from celebrities (and by celebrities, I really mean characters from TV shows, movies, etc. because let's face it; I really don't follow or pay much attention to celebrities in real life). I'll be watching a show or movie and there's always my favorite person who I think has amazing style. I just always wish I had there clothes, basically. So I'm going to start sharing these styles that I'm in love with!
I'm starting with Erin Silver from my beloved show that recently ended, 90210. Let's be real here; this show has got it going on when it comes to fashion. I don't think I pay more attention to clothes and styles more than on this show.

Summer 2013 Wishlist ☼

With Summer among us (10 days to be exact), there comes new summer make-up must-haves. Below, I have complied a list of some of the products I am dying to get my hands on most this warm, sunny, season. The next time I go shopping, I will make it my mission to acquire these items that I so desire for the summer holiday. In no particular order, here are some of my current cravings!
 
Revlon Lip Butter in Wild Watermelon

I think this color is beautiful and perfect for this time of year. Especially summery, it even has watermelon in the name, which is an essential snack to keep cool during the hot days (hehe). Anyway, I think this would be great to have as it is extremely moisturizing and has a lovely color selection but isn't too heavy. This one in particular is a very pretty light, pinkish red.

Secret Life of the American Teenager is over :(

Last Tuesday marked the very last episode of the teen-drama filled ABC Family original series The Secret Life of the American Teenager. Since watching the series finale, I felt like giving the show a proper send-off by writing my thoughts of how it ended as well as the show as a whole.
I will start by saying the show used to be a lot better than when it came to an end. The concept and controversial subject matter made for a very emotional and entertaining television show. The acting hasn't always been the most amazing, but it definitely lost it's spark and faded toward the end.

More New Obsession Worthy Songs

I'm always on the lookout for new (whether that be actually new or just something I'd never heard before) songs. I feel the need to share as I'm listening to these songs now nonstop and think they're amazing. Hopefully, if you're looking for something new to listen to these might give you an idea.
Massive Attack
First, I wanted to talk about this group and their songs as a collective because it's already hard enough to describe their musical style even once. Their genre is explained as trip-hop although I don't find this title fitting as most of their songs don't really have an ounce of hip-hop element. I would say it's more electronic, psychedelic, possibly even trance-like. Whatever it is, I just am absolutely in love with it.

Review: CHI Silk Infusion

Hello blogosphere! How's everybody's week been? Mine has been quite fantastic considering I'm graduating tomorrow (which I'm pretty stoked for, naturally). Today my Senior class took our traditional final field trip to Silverwood, which is a very large them park in Idaho (in case you aren't familiar with the Pacific Northwest). It was a long, hot, and sunny day. My hair got just a little (understatement) messed up from the wind from the rides, the sweat, sun, and the windy bus ride. So as soon as I arrived back at my humble abode I took it upon myself to take a nice cool shower.

One of my fairly new go-to products when looking for moisture, shine, and softness is, of course, the CHI Silk Infusion.

Jumping on the Bandwagon: TOMS!

Last year this huge new trend started popping up everywhere. Yes, I'm talking about the infamous TOMS shoes. I will admit, at first I was not digging them whatsoever. I didn't really get why everyone was so obsessed with them. I thought they just looked weird. Eventually, they grew on me. I started to like the simplistic look of them. Not to mention I'm a huge fan of shoes you can just slip on and go.
One of the reasons I didn't like them in the beginning had to do with the colors. Everyone I saw would always be wearing grey, beige, or navy and I did not find those choices of colors very appealing (except on guys they're perfectly fine).

Glee Season 4 Finale

I know, I know. I'm a little late, but better late than never, right? Glee is one of my favorite shows and felt it was necessary to do a post on the recent season finale. Let me start by saying that season 4 was not my favorite. It doesn't all rest on the fact that most of the best characters left and aren't in the glee club anymore. It has to do with who replaced them. Obviously, Puck, Finn, Kurt, Rachel, Mercedes, Mike, Quinn and Santana are pretty much irreplaceable. However, I just wasn't a big fan of the new kids really at all. Ryder, Jake, and Marley were especially boring and annoying.
Now, about the last episode. I felt it was a good episode. I really enjoyed the bit regarding gay marriage. I loved the old couple. A cried a little when she asked her partner to marry her. Of course, I really want Blaine and Kurt to get married already.

Dry/Frizzy/Curly Hair Tips

Those of you who have been given the amazing  gift of having luscious locks ( at least, that's how we want them to be) know also how difficult it is to maintain the mane. I have extremely thick hair, a lot of it, and it's also curly. All of these factors combine call for having really dry and frizzy hair. It's like no matter what we do, no matter how many expensive products we splurge on for our hair, we still can't get it perfect. We may not be able to have perfectly soft and shiny hair always and forever, but we can sure as hell try and come pretty close. There are definitely products out there that help us out immensely. There are also a few tips and tricks to dealing with the curly and dry hair that can really have an impact. I though I would share my most used ones with you today.
(I just LOVE Shakira's hair)
One thing that is now vital to my hair survival is something that I probably should have started doing a very long time ago. I feel like I was told this so many times but just ignored it on the assumptions it would never work and just make managing my hair even more difficult. I am talking about using a wide tooth comb instead of a brush.

Awesome YouTuber: Shane Dawson!

I'm such a YouTube junkie I figured it would only be appropriate if I started making posts about my favorite people of YouTube, and there are a lot of them! So I wanted to start this off right by talking about my favorite YouTuber of all time: Shane Dawson!
I have been watching this funny mofo for 4 years now and he was actually one of the very first channels I started watching and subscribed to. I had no idea there was this whole online community of content creators, comedians, vloggers, filmmakers, and musicians, Once I found out about it, I never went back to life without YouTube.

Review: The Body Shop Body Butters

I am back with yet another blog post about The Body Shop! You can probably tell by now that I kind of like The Body Shop. They are just an all-around great store. In my last post about TBS, which you can read here, I mention that I joined their member club. After you join, you are gifted a free item (or items) worth up to $10 of your choosing. One of the products I chose was the Coconut Body Butter.
 
Let me start off by saying that I've been much of a fan of lotions and I'd never tried a body butter before. It sounds weird but I've just never liked the greasy, oily, residue they give you and I guess I've never cared enough to look for a good quality one.
