Fall Lipsticks Wishlist

Hi guys!
It's now starting to feel like fall! The weather's changing, the temperature's dropping, and Pumpkin Spice Latte's are back in Starbucks! To celebrate Fall, I thought that I'd do a fall lipsticks wishlist for you! This is shopable, so if you like a color, click on the image! Let's get started!

During the Fall, I'm all about those reds and purples! I am loving that oxblood shade that is popular every fall, but I also am really digging the brick red! Brown tones are also some of my favorites this time of year because it's a nice way to deepen up a nude, and make it a little bit edgier and more appropriate for this time of year! Formulation wise, you see pretty much the old tried and trues, but Gucci is up there a lot! I have never tried any Gucci makeup, but these lippies look incredible! It's definitely on the top of my wishlist!

Let me know down below what colors you're loving for fall, and if there's any in particular I need to check out! Also, don't forget to follow this blog on bloglovin if you aren't already! It's the number one way to stay up to date with this blog :)

Bathroom Tour and What's in My Shower Caddy!

Hey guys!
I'm here with a new video today! I did a dorm tour a couple weeks ago (click here to see it!), but I didn't do the bathroom area in that video, so this video is going to be that plus what's in my shower caddy! Let's get started!

What's in My Shower Caddy?

What's in My Other Caddy?

I hope you enjoyed this video! If you did, please SUBSCRIBE and give this video a thumbs up! It seriously helps me out a lot! Also, let me know what other videos you'd like to see! I already have a makeup collection and a what's in my fridge video ready to go up, but I need more ideas!

Did I Complete My Summer Bucket List?

Hi guys!
I was totally not planning on doing this post, but I saw my friend Julie did a similar post on her blog, and I thought it would be fun to do here too! If you want to see her post, click here!

I'm pretty proud to say that I did most of these! Here's what I got to do...

Host a Dinner Party

I didn't get a chance to host as many parties as I would have liked over the summer (I love being the hostest!), but I was able to throw one of my friends a surprise grad party, which was super great!
P.S. if you wanna see how I did it, watch this video!

Go To the Beach!

Didn't get to do this nearly as much as I would have liked, but I went a couple times with my friends, and I hung out by the pool every day when I was in San Diego!

Amusement Parks!I actually got to go to Universal Studios, Disneyland, and California Adventure over the summer, which was incredible! I had the best time there with my family, and if you want to see all of our adventures during the Cali trip, watch this video!

Read a Ton!
I didn't read as much as I would have liked to either. I did re-read Paper Towns and the Divergent series, and I read a ton of magazines and articles, but I never got around to reading On The Road again, so that's definitely on my list for Christmastime!

I slept a lot, which was really good. Overall, I think that the summer was probably the chillest in a while because it gave me a lot of time by myself to relax, unwind, and really figure out who I am as a person (as cheesy as that sounds) :)

I didn't get around to going on a hike, which was probably for the better because one of my friends got really injured hiking in the mountains. And I didn't get to see a sunrise either during the summer, but I saw one a couple weeks ago when I woke up early for the Great Reno Balloon Race (see my post about it here!)

I am so excited for fall and I can't wait to actually see the leaves change (because they don't do that in Hawaii!), wear warmer clothing, and have pumpkin spice everything! If you made a bucket list as a part of my stylish summer challenge, I would love if you did a similar post like this or just told me what you accomplished in the comments!

What I Eat in a Day!

Today's video is a What I Eat in a Day College Edition! I am obsessed with What I Eat videos especially Essena's and Bonny's and I decided to do one of my own today! Just some things before we get started, I am lactose intolerant so I try to stay away from dairy as much as possible (but I have lactase I can take if I want ice cream or something), I also try to cut out meat and animal products whenever possible, but I am not a strict vegetarian or vegan! I also have a meal plan so I'm kind of at the mercy of whatever food is in the cafeteria when I want to eat! Okay, now let's get started!

If you liked this video, please give it a thumbs up and subscribe to my channel! Also, I have three videos ready to go, so I'm going to try get back to a two videos a week format!

How To Beat Procrastination! My Tips and Tricks

Hi guys!
I wanted to do this post because I know a lot of us have already started school and are getting back into the swing of things. Procrastination is something that we all hate, but end up doing anyway. Here are my tips to help you be a little more organized, productive, and procrastination free! 

1) Hold Yourself Accountable
This is going to be a little bit different for everyone, but find a way to hold yourself accountable. For me, I like to write what I need to accomplish in my planner so I can constantly look at it and force myself to do what's on my list. If you don't think that'll work with you, try telling a friend what you need to do, so they can hold you accountable when you start to slip. 

2) Spend Your Time Wisely
In my dorm room, I'm always the first one to go to sleep and the first one to rise. I am a morning person and I know that I'm not productive after 10pm, so I don't try to push myself at night. I think that being aware of yourself and knowing when you function best is super important, and if you can spend your most awake hours doing homework, you'll be that much better! 

3) Minimize Distractions
I'm one of those people that can sit at a desk with my computer and phone near me and be perfectly fine doing homework. Not everyone is like that, though, and if you're one of those people that are going to be tempted by your phone or computer, try to go to a separate area without them. Sometimes when I'm reading and taking notes, I'll just take my book and notepad into the hallway so I'm completely present. Sure I look like a weirdo, but it's definitely worth it! 

4) Schedule!
This isn't a tip that I personally use, but I know that it's something that a lot of people use, so it was worth mentioning. You can try scheduling times when you're going to do homework in the calendar app on your phone, so it'll alarm you when it's time for you to do stuff! 

5) Use a Timer!
Sometimes procrastination happens because you've started something, but it's boring or mentally draining and you want to do something else. This is where a timer is insanely helpful! You can set it for 25 minutes and then set another one for a 5 minute break when the first one goes off. This is a tip I use a lot when studying for exams or finals because it helps you remember things better! 

I hope that these tips help you beat your procrastination, and if you have any tips of your own, leave them below because I'd love to read them! I'm also planning on doing a "how to blog while in college" post, so if you have any questions you'd like me to address, leave them in a comment too!

How To Facetime Like a Boss

If you're a college student living away from home for the first time, Facetime is your best friend. Most people know the drill, sit down in front of your computer or hold your phone in front of your face. LAME! Here's how you facetime like a boss!

1) Put your foot to your face
This is one of the best ways to facetime like a boss. Why? You get to show whoever you're facetiming your foot. How cool is that? You also get to freak out your roommates or whoever walks in on you when you're facetiming. There's also a pretty stretch in this position!

2) Hold your phone with your feet
The easiest way to do this is barefoot, hooking your big toes to keep it stable. Why should you hold your phone this way? It leaves your hands free to move! Gesture freely and wildly! Also, if you lift your legs closer to your face, you can get a pretty nice stretch going! 

If you can't tell by now, this post is a complete joke (sort of). I actually do facetime in these positions and my roommates snapchatted it because they thought it was crazy and weird! In all honesty, these are pretty good stretches and I stand by my arguments! Let me know how you facetime like a boss in the comments below and follow me on bloglovin for more!

Dorm Room Tour!

Hey guys!
You guys have been asking for a dorm room tour for a really long time, and I finally got it up for you! Sorry that the audio's a little funky, I was filming on the iphone and it got a little distorted. Anyway, just a little information pre video, I live in a brand new building (yay!). The layout is two rooms connected with a shared bathroom (suite style) and I have two roommates! Okay, enjoy!

I hope you enjoyed this video! Let me know if you'd like to see anything in more detail in another video! I was thinking about doing a food video (even though I already did a blog post about it!) and maybe a "what makeup I took to college" video as well! Also, don't forget to give this video a thumbs up and subscribe if you like my videos!
