Collective Makeup Haul!!

Hi beautifuls! This week's post is a haul, and I've never done a haul before. I bought all this makeup over a period of a couple months, and I thought I would show you guys what I got. I love makeup so much, so I'm super excited for this post. Before we get into it though, I have two disclaimers: 1. I bought everything in this post with my own money, not my parents money or anything and 2. I didn't go out and buy all of this in one go; I've been collecting it. With that out of the way, let's get started!

Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Colors in Lust for Blush and Divine Wine


Almay One Coat Thickening Mascara

e.l.f. Instant Lift Brow Pencil in Taupe

(I can't find a link for this anywhere, but I got it at Target)

e.l.f Translucent Mattifying Powder



Neutrogena Healthy Skin Smoothing Stick in Light

Almay Liquid Eye Liner in Black

So that's it! If you guys have any questions about how I liked the items or anything just comment. And I left a link to where I got everything under the pictures, so if you like it you can get it!

With tons of love,


Welcome to Society

Hey cuties! Sooooo, today I thought I would do something I haven't done in a really long time: post a poem I wrote. There are some old ones still up, and I haven't taken them down even though they're really embarrassing.. Anyways, here it is! I hope you like it

Welcome to Society
Don't be put off by the conformity
Trust us, life is better here
We’ll make the requirements perfectly clear

Please be graceful, beautiful, and fit
If you're not, please see to it
Please be yourself, be unique
But for the love of God, don't be a geek

We’re sorry to tell you, but you're all wrong
You're tall and awkward, your limbs are too long
Your smile's too real, you're not enough
We apologize, but this world is tough

Not to be rude, but it is your fault
And tearing people down is our default
You cannot make it in this place, my dear
But, just one more thing...You're stuck here

Soooo yeah.. That's it! I hope you enjoyed it! Oh and if you want me to do a certain post, comment below!

With tons of love,
Em <3


Cute Date Ideas for Valentine's Day!!

Hello my Valentine's!! I hope you all have a marvelous Valentine's Day on Sunday, and maybe you can get some ideas from this post. You can do these with your Significant Other, or with your besties if you're single (like me!) Let's get right into it!
  • Bake treats
What's better thank just hanging with someone you love (or like, or can barely stand, whatever)? The answer: hanging with someone you love, with fresh homemade baked goods. Even if they come out awful, it'll still be super fun, and you can laugh at your fails.
  • Go ice skating
This date is so super cute. You can go indoors if you live somewhere warmer, or you can go outside if it's freezing where you live (like where I live). You can hold on to your sweetie if you're having trouble, and even if you can skate fine, you can fake having trouble. It works like a charm, I promise. 
  • Explore a local city
It doen't even have to be a big city. You can walk around with your babe, and the snow will start to fall, and you'll snuggle close. Then you can go get coffee/hot chocolate at a quaint little coffee shop, and people watch. *sigh*
  • Go on a hike
Okay, I'll admit this is not my ideal date, as it involves exercise and I'm more of a potato. For some people though, this might be right up your alley. 
  • Walk on the beach
I had to include this stereotypical date, sorry. It's stereotypical for a reason though, because almost everyone loves it. It's relaxing, and a great date for old and new couples/friends as there would be plenty of time to talk.

I hope this gave you some ideas if you needed them! Comment down below what your Valentine's Day plans are. I love you all oodles and oodles, and I hope you have a great day!

With tons of love,
Em <3


Liebster Award!!!

Hi guys!!! This week, I have some really cool news! My blog was nominated for a Libster Award (squeeeeee)!!! To be honest, I didn't know what this was when Dottie first nominated me, but it's an award to raise awareness of small bloggers. Basically, someone nominates you, you answer 11 questions that the nominator posts, then you nominate 11 bloggers, and create 11 questions for them to answer. If you're confused, check out Dottie's blog because she explains it really well.

Dottie's questions for me:

1. What would be your desert island album? (Basically if you could only listen to one album for the rest of time, what would it be?)
Ack this is so extremely hard to choose!! I have like three favorite albums, but I would have to say Electra Heart by Marina and the Diamonds. It's soooooo good!

2. What is your favourite quote, and why?
“So, I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons. And maybe we'll never know most of them. But even if we don't have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.”
This quote is from The Perks of Being a Wallflower, which is one of the best books in the entire universe. I love this quote because it reminds me that the past does not define a person, and we always can choose our future and have control over what's to come.

3. What three people do you look up to the most, and why?
*My best friend: She grew up with a pretty dysfunctional family, and because of that had a horrible childhood, but she is one of the most optimistic, loving, and generous people I know and I think she's really inspiring and I love her to pieces.
*The biology teacher I had last year: She's like the older sister I never had, without the arguing. She gives great advice, and she's the coolest adult I know.
*My dad: He's kind to everyone and he's funny (he makes dad jokes funny somehow).

4. What was the last whole album you purchased?
Badlands by Halsey

5. If you could see any band (ever to exist) live, what band would it be, and why?
Probably Passenger because I've seen him live before and he's such an incredible live performer and so down to Earth and entertaining.

6. Coffee shop or restaurant, and why? 
Coffee shop because I like pastries and coffee more than like dinner food.

7. Do you prefer going to the cinema, or watching movies at home?
I don't like movies that much; I find it hard to pay attention during the whole thing.

8. What medium is best for playing music (vinyl, CD, iTunes, tape...)?
I like iTunes personally.

9. Do you have a "usual" drink in a coffee shop? Yes, a Caramel Macchiato

10. What three words would you use to describe your style?
Hmm, I would say varied, girly, and grunge.

11. Why did you start your blog, and how do you want it's future to be (e.g. professional, personal, etc.) ?
I started my blog as something to do to distract myself from the impending doom of my freshman year of high school. Honestly, I haven't really thought of its future, but I want it to stay personal.

My nominations:
Diary of a Lonely Girl
Lauren from Simply Lauren Elizabeth
Rose from Kisses, Rose
Annie from Mixing Sugar and Salt
Ailish Elizabeth from Ailish Elizabeth

My questions for them:
1. What is your favorite animal and why?
2. What did you want to be when you grew up when you were 5?
3. Would you rather live in the city or the country?
4. Why is your best friend your best friend?
5. What is the most awkward thing you have ever done?
6. What are you spectacular at?
7. Describe your personality in three words:
8. What subject did you/ do you hate in high school?
9. Do you like Valentine's day or do you think it's a scam?
10. What do you hope of the future?
11. What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?

Next week, I'll have a Valentine's Day post, so stay tuned. If you have an idea for a Valentine's Day themed post that you want, let me know in the comments!

With tons and tons of love,
Em <3
