Weekly Spread: January 16th-22nd

Happy Tuesday! This week has been pretty wild! I started my Master's program yesterday and I am still in a state of disbelief that it's happening. I am very excited about it, but a bit overwhelmed at the moment. I know once I get my routine down everything will flow, but until them I feel a little unorganized. I tried to keep my planner deco minimal (if you can believe it) so I would have room to add in assignments and jot down reminders. I definitely plan on taking this white spread approach more as the semester goes on. A majority of the stickers used in this kit are from the new Recollections stickers at Michael's. I really love the designs and am looking forward to purchasing more from Recollections in the future! Hope everyone has a great week!

Weekly Spread: January 9th-15th

Happy Tuesday! I am loving this Snow Princess kit from Sticker Bloom. This kit is especially fitting since Buffalo was hit with about 3 feet of snow in some areas. Gotta love that Buffalo weather! 
I hope everyone has a great week!

Duckie Duckie

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6

Before the snow even hit the ground, I bought myself a pair of duck boots in preparation for some crazy Buffalo weather. I had been looking at the LL Bean style, but I could not justify the price. I went on a duck boot hunt and found a pair from Kohl's that are very similar to the coveted brand, but a fraction of the price. With coupons and a good sale, I purchased comfortable and cute duck boots for around $30! For Christmas, my dad bought me a pair which was a very nice unexpected gift! They are so cute and have a red/maroon pattern and a furry top. They are extra cozy. I have seen quite a few fun looks featuring duck boots and I am eager to style them with jeans, leggings and skirts!

Unboxing: December Sephora Play!

December's Sephora Play box may be my favorite one yet! So far I have discovered two new products that I love. The first is the Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray. This lightweight mist is incredible! Ever since I first tried this product a little over a week ago, it has become an essential piece in my beauty bag. Before this miracle mist, I would get ready in the morning and by the time I got to work you could not even tell I put makeup on! It's like it just disappeared during my commute. Now that I am using this spray, my makeup looks freshly applied all day! I will definitely be purchasing the fullsize soon. Another product I have been using is the Dry Bar Detox Dry Shampoo. This is hands down the most effective dry shampoo I have ever used. My hair feels so clean and light, like I just washed it. The one con with this product is the smell. I am just not a fan. I do not even know how to describe the scent, but it's not very pleasant.
As for the other samples, I am very excited to try the Bobbi Brown mascara and Elizabeth & James perfume. I cannot wait to receive my Play box for this month! Best ten bucks ever spent!

Weekly Spread: January 2nd-8th

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend! I had a blast ringing in the new year with some incredible friends. After a long weekend, I was having a hard time getting back into the work mindset. Luckily, I have a some fun things planned this week and this adorable spread from Stick With Me Shop on Etsy. I have been patiently waiting to use this kit for a few months now. Jenny has such cute designs and her little characters make me so happy. 
I hope everyone has a great week!
