New Changes 

I got an apartment!!

I don’t know how the hell im going to afford it, but I’ll figure it out. 🙂

I’m really excited, it will be much better than living in the dorms.

My own space, no crazy drunks, a bit off campus so I’m not constantly thinking of school or things I should be doing…

And away from my crazy roommate now, that I love but has some tendencys to drive me insane.

Considering I’m an introvert, moving into an apartment with someone that has a lot of the same views is going to be really good I think. 

As I told my sister the details on the apartment she responded with “I won the lottery” sooooo that was cool. I’m hoping this summer that luck spreads to me haha. 

Also, in the spirit of this semester almost being over and new things happening, I decided to try the mango black tea lemonade from Starbucks (I’ve never had before) which now has become a favorite.

Here’s to new beginnings 😄

Love,

Genuine Music and Genuine Soul

Unless you’ve been living under a rock (assuming you’re not Patrick Star that is), you should know that Harry Styles is kicking ass in the music industry.

He’s making a mark, his own mark with music influenced from what he enjoys listening to and what he would listen to.

“Sign of The Times” has been out since a couple weeks ago and just recently on Saturday Night Live (SNL) he debuted another song called “Ever Since New York” which I have to say might be even better than the “Sign Of The Times” track.

I’m writing this simply to let you know that Styles is worth listening to whether with old or young ears, it’s a new vibe that isn’t electronic or auto-tuned to the hilt– it’s fresh, new, and genuine from the artist.

Music like this, is music that will never go out of style.

Also, I have to add that Jimmy Fallon and Styles were Amazing on SNL. Amazing with a capital “A.” Both are hilarious, both are talented AF, and both do something to me heart I can’t describe besides make it smile.

Love,

Nat

P.S. I watched Moana for the first time EVER last night (finally!), and that Disney movie is fantastic. Go watch it if you haven’t, just go. ❤

Also, The photo on the SNL set I believe was taken by Rosalind O’Connor (who’s amazing, at least from what I’ve seen over on SNL’S Facebook page. 🙂

All for Galifornia

Ever since I randomly stumbled upon the new blush by Benefit on an Australian website,”Galifornia” has been on the top of my list- because I knew it was one that I’d fall head over heels for. Galifornia is the absolute reason I splurged a bit today…

I went to Ulta, and I went to a corner store afterwards (mainly to pick up some mucinex for my mom who has a cold; keep away from sneezers people it’s cold / allergy season).

And yes, I did take these photos outside. 🙂 The best lighting is there, and today was a nice day anyway’s so psh if you judge me.

Onto the things at Ulta:

1. Soap and Glory ‘Clean on Me” shower gel.

2. Soap and Glory Super cat liquid liner pen (which slightly terrifies me, but less than the super cat fat liquid liner unless I was going for a thick liner look which I rarely do) in “jet black”. Still a hard-core dollywink eyeliner fan. 😉

3. Benefit Cosmetics “Galifornia” Blush. Fun spin on California, which I’m hoping / wishing to go to in June for VidCon. I’ve read some reviews on it that mention the golden overlay disappearing after 5 swipes and while that’s most likely true, I still felt the need to buy it. It looks like summer, it smells like summer, it simply reminds me of summer. Plus, Coralista my all time favorite blush ever to exist which always comes from Benefit reminds me a bit of this by glancing at it. Not entirely sure if it will resemble it all but either way I have a gut feeling I’m going to love it. ^_^

Onto the things at the corner store:

  1. Herbal Essences Body Envy shampoo
  2. Herbal Essences Body Envy Conditioner
  3. Revlon Eyelash Curler (my old one was soooo overused that I threw it out a month ago and haven’t used one since)
  4. Curad Bandaids just because I’ve always wanted to try these and what better a time to buy some when someone needs one and there are none in the house.

That is the mini look into what I bought today!

Hope you enjoyed reading, do you know of anything I should keep my eye out for make-up wise, hair wise, book wise, or all sorts of wise?

Love,

Nat 💖

 

 

HE IS COMING

tumblr_nh277zn8Ob1s7ub7eo2_250

Harry Styles and Jimmy Fallon will be gracing SNL on APRIL 15.

tumblr_o215kqvD231u26a76o1_500

YES, April 15.

I am ready, not sure about you all but for me my heart has never pounded so fast because I LOVE them both.

Of course, Jimmy has been on SNL since 1998, we all should know this by now. 🙂

Styles has only ever met Fallon once in December 2015, technically twice if you really want to consider Kristen Wiig dressing up as him for “an interview” with Fallon back in February 2014.

It’s going to be beautiful and “authentic” according to the CEO of Sony music.

If you’re unsure of what is meant by authentic-or laughing the description- my interpretation is simply for it being meant to sound and feel genuine.

Harry has always been seen as a genuine, goofy, lovable guy who isn’t overbearing or too mundane, he’s more chill. He sort of goes with the flow, and is into classics such as Stevie Wonder’s “Isn’t she Lovely” which some may remember from the X-factor.

Anyone who loves Stevie Wonder and Motown music in general is already sweet to me.

Because we’ve only seen the short clip with a bit of piano, it seems like the song will be a ballad and sound pure and not auto-tuned to the hilt or decked out with beats, which seems to be in quite a bit of music these days.

I for one, am super excited because this sounds like it will be right up my alley, right up my style, and has a yellow-brick road right to my flipping heart already being paved.

My question to you is: Are you excited for the song from Styles or more the SNL show with Styles and Fallon?

Love,

Nat

Harry Styles, Thank You

If you haven’t already heard, Harry Styles has released this video alluding to music being dropped on April 7. In fact, it’s not alluding at all- it is a straight fact.

April 7, that’s right, April 7.

Whether it’s a single (yes I’m aware the title of the video says ‘debut single’ but let me dream) or an album, it is going to be beautiful.

Is anyone else as stoked for this as me? 🙂

 

 

Love,

Nat

Garnier Girl Now?

This is the garnier whole blends shampoo in “honey treasures.”

It is specified as a repairing shampoo which intends to help with split ends and damage (very much needed for me). It smells like magic, and the cap is adorable and pretty secure despite the leave imprint on it causing it to be slightly nerve wracking if traveling with it. Yet, it’s cute and fits with the natural theme of the line like a gem.

I’m not a major fan of Garnier, it is one of those drugstore brands I haven’t been able to get behind because of past experiences with the brand making my hair appear greasy or breaking out my face. 

BUT, I am in love with this shampoo. I have been eying it for a month or so now, the entire wall which is a sea of different scents with different aspirations for people’s hair– and I decided to dive in too. 


It was between the “honey treasures” and the “mythic olive” one because I found the scents most appealing. 

I have used the “coconut oil and cocoa butter” leave-in-conditioner back in the summer, which smells AMAZING. 

It smells so so good, and I’m going to give credit to my cousin for discovering it. 

The garnier hair care line ranges from $3.47 – $6.29 in price, which is a pretty rad deal when it comes to shampoos. 

My other drugstore favorite would be the Pantene volume range although some have noted it isn’t the best for hair because the shampoo etc. causes buildup eventually thus creating volume, etc. But, my hair always came out looking bomb. 

I decided to step out of my comfort zone (entirely) and try out this garnier whole blends shampoo, I am so not disappointed. 

I plan on trying the olive (woo I’m actually so excited) one too. 

Wait 

If you’ve gone through a breakup, a troubling friendship, any situation where you have been wronged and there is no paranoia involved or thoughts of you being the bad guy because you know there was zero way. Fact… 

You need to be patient. 

That jerk is going to message you, call you, email you, what have you… whether it’s 2 days time, 2 months time, or 2 years time they are going to realize they messed up. 

They are going to ask for you back, or ask to be friends. Maybe they are lonely or whatever side project they had didn’t work out for them… whatever the case, don’t disrupt your own life to play along. 

That chapter of your life is over. 

It feels like absolute hell, I know. 

And your going to want to message them right away and go off because you don’t deserve to be treated in such a way, I know. 

But be patient. 

Don’t sit around waiting for them to attempt to redeem themselves— or you. What you need to do is block them or unfriend them at least for a little while to clear any uneccesary garbage from your life that they may throw at you out of the blue. 

It is hard to move on, but after a little while (different times for everyone) it gets easier. 

You don’t believe me now, but please trust me when I say wait. 

And follow your intuition. 

Love,

A first 

There was a wedding tonight for my gorgeous cousin Amelia, I have a few photos, they are on my camera and will be uploaded asap (the latest will be Monday)– in the meantime here are a few photos I took with my phone. Enjoy.❤️14468239_10211048277346581_206707809896738731_o.jpg14445066_10211048276346556_3967579962609990550_o.jpg14481902_10211048276186552_3185248194292710316_o.jpg14435278_10211048274746516_5091857961897216022_o.jpg14524620_10211048278386607_3973218655818879386_o.jpg14542411_10211048278026598_4506772862551191271_o.jpg14468200_10211048279866644_6941259316908200815_o.jpg14543673_10211048282146701_696247517199814154_o.jpg

Converse conquered 

Now, this is incredibly random yet I feel like posting something so you all don’t think I’ve vanished haha.

Ever since elementary, I’ve opened a pair of converse– from black high tops in talent shows to walking on campus in white low rise shoes…

I’m going to make a little list of all the converse I’ve owned over the years, maybe you’ll be into it, maybe not. Either way, I’m a converse shoe girl through and through.

Alright, let’s go:

These are the first converse I remember owning, I wore them for my second grade talent show– very nostalgic memories haha
Now, I’m not quite sure exactly when I owned these but I know for sure it was in elementary school. I need to get these back in my wardrobe asap because these just make me so happy.

There were my GO-TO shoes in middle school. I loved these to bits, they were highlighter green, it could spot these a mile away, and even better… The inside flaps were pink and orange. It was like a rad little secret

Also a favorite in middle school, they seemed to go with more outfits than the green ones, yet the showstopper green still prevailed for me whether it matched my outfit or not.

I remember solely wanting them forever because a girl was wearing them in the Justin Bieber “baby” video. Yes, yes I really did just admit that. But also, orange is one of my abortive colors so why not wear it all the time on my feet?

These were a staple last year. Blue isn’t too rad of a color in my opinion, these were probably my least favorite. They posses many good memories though.

These are the ones I rule the world in now, haha. I LOVE these. They go with everything and I can just slip them on. Amazing. Stylish. Could completely get dirty within two weeks, but that’s what cleaner is for, haha. ❤️
All in all, converse are versatile, comfortable, and is downright the shoe love of my life. 😄
Love,

Nat💖
