Friday Morning

Hello readers, I don't know about you but I can't wait for the weekend. I have been looking forward to sleeping in all week due to three hour conversations and midnight chats with my fellow students who are equally annoyed with this project we've been working on. All I have in store for the weekend is hitting up the pool, there's a possibility I'll be sleeping all Saturday, starting The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins and wrapping up this month long school project (at least my peers are equally annoyed with this assignment, I'm glad I'm not the only one). What about you, what are your plans? Happy Weekend!!

this week's favorites...

I was introduced to Paul Thurlby alphabet book last week and I love it. All I can say is get his alphabet, numbers and wildlife books. They are fantastic for both adults and children. Happy Friday and I hope you have a great weekend :)

February Beauty Favorites

A few musts, favorites and beauty products I really want to get my hands on. 
Over the holidays while my brother and sister were in town, I found myself digging through my sister's endless lipstick bag to find my new favorite, Creme Cup!! Get it. love it and then stock up. It's the perfect blush pink hue to add just a little color to your lips. And if you're looking for a new blush or lip stain, I love this Stila Palette. What are some of your favorite recent beauty purchases?

Happy Hump Day :)

Mud Pie Apparel

Over Christmas, my mom treated me to a few pieces that would make my tea set a little more complete. Loving my it's tea o'clock teapot and spoon, I had to find out more about the Mud-Pie brand. A few hours later I found myself in the apparel section already eyeing some spring dresses that need to be in my closet, especially the adorable black and grey pocketed shift dress. What are you looking forward too this spring?

On Balance

In the last seven weeks, I have officially been crazy lady. With wrapping up work assignments and creating new projects for myself on top of a very demanding academic semester (which means I have spent too many nights at Starbucks because the internet has been out), keeping up to date with the blog, making a big move across the valley, trying to find sleep between everything and trying to keep my sanity has been quite the challenge for the new year. I was not really sure what my resolutions were going to be for 2015 but handling this very busy schedule I've had as of late as been a little too much for me to handle. Luckily, the move is over which means I can relax a little bit more. When faced with a busy schedule how do you find balance between everything. How do you keep sane, remain calm and collected when you are with friends or family, when all you want to do is sleep or read a magazine? How do you find and keep balance in the midst of chaos and slow down?
