Goodbye November! IT’S OFFICIALLY THE HOLIDAY SEASON! Time to put up my tree, take a few finals for class, bake some cookies, and jam out to Last Christmas by Wham. But first, let’s get to my favorite things of this month.
Maybelline Master Glow Highlighter
I can’t believe it took me this long to jump on the highlighter train. I’ll basically try anything Maybelline comes out with, and once again they have come out with a hit. At least on my pale skin, this looks more like an orange-brown rather than gold. I’m not mad at this at all as it’s like a metallic bronzer on me. It especially looks great on the upper cheek up into the forehead.
Anyone who knows me personally or read my Canadian adventure post knows I love Canada. I hope in a few years my education can take me up there to grad school. (Fingers crossed!) As any semi-rebellious college girl does, I got a tattoo. Since I’ve turned 18, I’ve been thinking about getting one, but I wanted to wait to go with my friends. Fast forward to two weeks ago, they still haven’t gotten them. So I took matters into my own hands. That morning I woke up and thought “I think I’ll get a tattoo today”, so I did. I’ve kind of fell in love with the design on Ink Box, but instead of a temporary one from them I got one that isn’t coming off. Thank you so much, Jered! I love it!
One thing that nobody tells you about going to college is that you need to wear comfortable shoes all the time. This should be a no-brainer, but I don’t ever listen to people’s advice. Even though all of my classes are fairly close, I do walk at least five miles a day getting around campus. Especially living in Kansas, you never know what the weather is going to be like. One hour it might be raining and the other you might be in 30 mph winds. So I decided it was time to turn in my heeled boots for duck boots. I’ve always like Sperry boots, but not the price tag. These shoes I found at Target are almost identical to the Saltwater style of Sperry, just without the logo on the back. They keep me warm with inner lining and keep my feet dry during wet days.
Essie Nail Polish- Bikini So Teeny
For the past year or so Essie has been my go-to nail polish brand. It’s on the higher priced side of drugstore brand, but in my opinion it has the longest staying power. I’ve always been terrible at painting my nails, so I still force my mom to do it on the weekends. Though it’s more of a spring color, I’m going to be wearing this all year round.
Since Thor was introduced in the MCU, he was definitely my least favorite character. I’m not going to lie – he’s nice to look at, but his movies never hit home with me. This all changed at the beginning of the month when I saw Thor: Ragnarok. I’ve never laughed so much in a theatre before. The new direction that Marvel has been taking since Avengers 2 has been a blast! Taika Waititi’s vision for the God of Thunder is fantastic. The other two Thor films tried too hard to be grounded in reality and should have had more fun with it. From the first scene it basically just said we were going to embrace all the weirdness of the comics. By the way, it’s god damn funny. There is one scene particularly where Thor is telling a story about Loki turning into a snake, which I couldn’t stop laughing at. Never in a million years would I ever had thought to say that I liked a Thor movie more than Justice League. #shotsfired
