When In College…

…you’re too busy to even breathe.

As you can tell by the lack of posts, college is taking the life out of me. Between school, friends, and Model United Nations, I barely have time to do anything else. And, let me tell you, I really enjoy my sleep. Sometimes, I find myself wanting to write a post but then I realize that it might not be in my blog’s genre. So I’ve been thinking, instead of stopping this blog and starting a new one, I’ll just refresh Me, Myself, and Boston, and make it a more personal blog about my thoughts and stuff bouncing around my head. There will still be some talk of fashion but I want to be able to blog without having the constraint of a specific theme because that discourages me from posting. I enjoy the blogosphere too much to limit myself into a topic or two.

With that said, here are some things that I have been thinking about in the last few days.

Sweaters
Sweater weather! I’m not completely enthusiastic about the cold but this weather means that I have a legitimate excuse to go shopping. As I’m typing this, a huge order of clothes is going through with sweaters, jackets, scarves, and tights. My favorite right now is this fisherman sweater that I just bought. The color, the texture, oh! I can’t wait.

Inspirational Quotes
I’m currently looking for inspirational quotes that I can use to decorate the walls of my dorm. I have a bunch of posters but my room needs a little extra. Here are some to inspire you, too:

Golden Hair
I really want a hair redo. I’ve been looking at golden tones to lighten my hair but still give it some fresh breeze. I have dark brown hair and I don’t think going too light would look good but I want something to brighten up my face a bit. And no, I do not follow the whole dark hair in winter and light hair in summer. Who cares?

Of course, I can never look like Adriana Lima. Still, I love her hair color.

Beauty Links

I have to be the first one to admit that I’m not too big on make-up. I’d rather spend my money on clothes than a few lipsticks. But, I also have to admit that sometimes make-up makes or breaks your outfit. I think there’s a subtle art to how to do your make-up and do it well. Here you’re going to find a small collection of links for make-up and make-up tutorials that I’m dying to try. I’m the kind of girl who usually sticks to foundation, bronzer, delicate eyeliner line, and lip balm for her day look and then adds the smokey eye for the night. I’m so ready to change it up!

01. I’m dying for this RiRi Boy lipstick off of her new MAC collection. I’ve never been a lipstick girl but I think it’s time to change that.

02. This Benefit highlighter needs to happen this summer. I don’t want uneven splochiness on my skin that usually happens during the summer months when I get a little bit too much sun.

03. I know that I will always go to my smokey eye and anything with color on the eyes kind of scares me a bit but this palette from Sephora has my smokey-eye needs as well as other colors that I can add for a pop of dare devil.

04. Because my go-to make-up is always eyeliner, I totally appreciated this tutorial from The Beauty Department. My eyes are my best feature in my face and I’m sure this technique is going to help me make them look amazing every day.

05. WhoWhatWear.Com made this great story for natural-looking make-up. This might actually pump me up for wearing more make-up during the day.
