With winter comes sweets.

Hello lovely! I know it's been quite awhile but i'm realizing that I only like to blog when something inspirational comes my way and to be quite honest that doesn't happen as much as i'd like it to. But today, I've decided to do quick and fun little posts. This will be one of my new years resolutions :) lets just take it day by day. I recently popped into my local TJ Maxx and found this BEAUTIFUL cookbook. However, it's not just any's a C-H-O-C-O-L-A-T-E cookbook. yes you heard it right. It has tons and tons of recipes, mainly desserts of course, but also non-dessert recipes that all incorporate chocolate somehow. Knowing myself, I just could not pass up this gem. Not only is the outer interior of the book stunning, but the insider has beautifully laid pictures and simple recipes that is easy to read and follow. I have an addiction to buying all sorts of cookbooks even though I myself am not a cook. With that said, I will forever be building my collection and will soon be popping open one of them once in awhile to try a new recipe. If you haven't already checked your local TJ Maxx for cookbooks, you definitely should! They have such a nice variety ranging from desserts, to vegan and vegetarian, southern, appetizers, beginners, and even cocktail books!

My everyday makeup routine video

Hello lovlies! For a long time now, i've been contemplating on whether or not to do a video on my everyday makeup routine. I had been on the fence about it, and I know a lot of people may think 'what's the big deal, girls do this all the time'! but for me, it was a big deal. With that said, I finally had the time (as well as the courage) to sit down and actually film this video. It's may not be the best, but i'm glad I did it. It was a huge step for me to sit down and film this video and i'm glad I did! I don't claim to be some sort of makeup artist at all, trust me, but this is just what I find works best for me if that makes any sense at all. Now onto my routine, I don't wear this much makeup everyday, trust me ;) BUT when I do wear a full face of makeup, this is what I go for. On a normal day, when I don't feel like wearing so much makeup, i.e. school or an errand day, i'll just groom my brows with a little powder, eyeliner (which is always a must for me) a pinch of blush to give a little life to my face, and some lip balm! If for some reason you would like to see that routine, then let me know and I will be sure to add it to my list of videos to do! I do love requests so don't be shy! :) so without further adieu, here is my makeup routine: Products used:

-Liz earle moisturizer for dry/sensitive skin

vaseline lip balm

-Mac pro longwear concealer in NW15

-Mac studio fix concealer in NW20

-Mac studio sculpt foundation in NC20

-Maybelline dream lumi touch highlighting concealer

-Naked basics palette : Naked 2, faint, and crave

-maybelline color tattoo cream eyeshadow in barely branded
