I know I say this almost every month but this month was really fast. Maybe because I’ve spent my whole month studying or traveling out of state basically every weekend. Really now that July is over, I’m counting down the days until the big move next month. If you haven’t already, after this go ahead and read last week’s post. There will be a few changes in my posting schedule for the rest of the year.
Montalbano Shampoo Bar
It’s a true fact that I have a lot of hair. As stated in my hair post, I have very thick, dry, wavy, and dark hair. I’m always trying out new hair products for extra moisture but ones that aren’t going to leave build up. There is nothing more than I hate than after rinsing my hair and being left with a noticeable buildup. When I was at the Lush store earlier in the month, I decided to try out one of their shampoo bars. It’s really weird the first time you use it because you’re just rubbing a bar on your head. It has a citrus and rosemary base that’s wonderful for clarifying hair. Plus, your hair will smell amazing afterwards.
Black & White Letter Board
Like I said in the introduction, I’m moving out next month into a dorm. Slowly I’ve been picking up some decor items. Originally I was going to buy a felt letter board, but they are really expensive. This brand has three different sizes and comes in a couple different colors.
NYX Slim Eye Pencil in Seafoam Green
All over Instagram, I’ve been seeing super vibrant and colorful eyeliner looks. I’m not as daring as most girls when it comes to makeup, so I’m only going to use this to line my under eye. Originally I bought this for Halloween but kind of forgot I even had it afterwards. Because I have smaller hooded eyes, I’m always trying to find little ways to brighten them up.
Ikea Pillows- Hylle
This is another purchase I made for my dorm room. It’s just a basic pillow. Ikea has an amazing wide collection of pillows that fit all price points and firmness levels. This one is on the higher end of pillows at Ikea. I do spend at least 8 hours a night sleeping on it, so I think pillows are worth the investment. This style has a firm core with a cotton pillow outside.
Apple – 21.5″ iMac® – Intel Core i5 (2.3GHz) – 8GB Memory – 1TB Hard Drive – Silver
I’ve always dreamed about getting a Mac. Yeah, it’s not cheap, but it’s going to last me for my whole college career. Originally I was going to get a MacBook Pro, but I ultimately decided to go with the iMac. For classes, I’m going to use my Samsung Chromebook, but this will sit at my desk at home. I find myself doing better in classes when I have a designated workplace to do homework. I think if I had a laptop, I’d just do my homework in bed and get distracted more. Overall I love it. This is the newest model and the keyboard and mouse have fantastic battery life.
Special K Protein Bar Chocolate Peanut Butter
Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and the most important. If I had my way I’d eat french toast, bacon, and hashbrowns for breakfast every day. Truth is, that just isn’t healthy. A lot of people eat protein bars before a workout, but they are just an easy breakfast for me. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still going to eat the 20g of protein Thinkthin bars, but these are less dense and have a fewer chemicals.
