Holiday Break!

Another month has gone by and my promise to myself of posting on my blog has gone South yet again. I don't know if anyone else can agree with me but I find this semester of school completely overwhelming! So many books to read, papers to write and projects to finish. My finals week is coming up shortly and I have put all of my spare time into preparing for it. I also find myself extremely sick so far this month which doesn't help my school performance one bit. On top of everything else one of my best friends is getting married the last day of my finals week! Talk about everything jammed into one period of time! I'm hoping once school is over, the wedding is done and my health back on track I can commit more to working on this blog. I've also played around with the idea of starting a YouTube channel since watching the videos has become a good habit of mine (Great Distraction I tell ya!). Anyways just a little post explaining what is going on in my life. I can't believe it's December already and I'm turning 22 in a week! AH! I'm off to go finish a project on the Beatles (gotta love that history of US in the 1960's class). See you all soon!

And I go back to December all the time -Taylor Swift

My goodness it has been ages! My apologizes for being absent for so long. School has been completely overwhelming this semester and I found myself traveling quite a bit more than I ever expected! Anyways I am hopefully back in the swing of things and will be posting more new content soon. For today I have sticked to a old basic, Wednesday Wants. I love making these and hope you enjoy seeing them! Let me know if there is anything from this weeks wants you have your eyes on too!
I must be the last girl on the planet to not own the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette. I own the other two Naked's and love them dearly, yet never saw a good use for this one. Until this season, I have been constantly wearing neutral matte eyes with liner and think this could give me more variety to what I already own. Plus it's travel friendly (unlike the other two!) which has become important to me as of lately!
This dress is so beautiful I want it so badly for the holidays! It is from American Eagle, a place I really don't shop at anymore. However I saw this and was in love. Not only is it a rose-gold, champagne ombre but it is lace, three of my favorite things when it comes to clothing. I really would like to wear this on Christmas day to my Grandmothers house!
I've decided to start adding things non-beauty or fashion related to these posts which explains number 3. I am asking for a record player for Christmas since I already own two records (by odd chance) yet have no means to play them! I would like to get some of my favorite albums on vinyl such as Sigh No More by Mumford and Sons and they are rather cheap on amazon(only 13 bucks)!
This NARS lipstick in Fast Ride is usually much darker than what I normally go for. However it is described as as "sheer mulberry" which I think would look lovely this time of year. I am really into vampy lips this season (again late on the trend!) and think they pair oh so well with neutral eyes.
Lastly is this lovely hat from Forever 21. Many of the bands I have been listening to lately, sport these hats at their shows and I simply love the look of them. I may not be a musician myself but would love to own a hat to look like one! This one is black with a tribal print band on it which I think is a lovely touch to a simple piece.
That is it for my wants this week! Sorry again for the lack of posts, I have some exciting new ideas for this blog on their way and am hoping to dive in with my breaks I have coming up in school. Join me on bloglovin if you wanna see when I post more! Cheers!

The things I am wanting most this week have a definite fall is here vibe to them! The first item is this lovely pair of wine colored knit tights. The fabric and color combined make the perfect leg accessory for the autumn time.
Next up are these amazing Urban Ears headphones in the color pumpkin.  I have a pair of urban ears already that are over ear and am looking for a better pair to work out with. The color and style of these buds are just simply amazing.
The next pair of items pretty much speak for themselves. Slippers with foxes with glasses on them. What is more perfect than that?!
A new pair of straight leg jeans is seriously what I need this week. My current few pairs of jeans are driving me nuts lately and it's time I run back to Gap and grab some new ones!
Lastly, beauty wise I am lusting over Hoola Bronzer by Benefit. I have never tried this bronzer and since my Laguna is almost gone, I have my eye on this gem.

Mac Creme Cup

Mac Creme Cup has to be one of my favorite lipsticks of all time. It is a cremesheen formula which I find is the best out of the MAC range. This texture makes it creamy and easy to apply. It is a bit more glossy than other lipsticks I own but it really does not bother me. It is a blue toned pink but is rather muted in color. It comes up a bit redder on my skintone when I've seen it shown up paler on darker skinned people. It's a great everyday nudey pink shade that I am glad to have in my collection. Luckily it is also part of the permanent range at MAC. Let me know below if you love this lipstick or any others similar to it!

These are posts I have really missed doing lately so I'm glad to have them up and running again! This week I am lusting over eye makeup and fall clothing items. The Stila eyeliner is a coffee brown color which I am wanting for an everyday topline look. I love this eyeliner in black and have been meaning to pick up it's chocolate friend! The hoodie is a basic from American Apparel that I would love to have in black. I have a few other colors and they are great to throw in in a hurry to class. 
The pigment is Naked from MAC . I haven't tried their pigments before so am looking to stay neutral on my first go. Next are the boyfriend sweatpants in black from PINK by V.S. I love a loose fitting pant and it's that time of year to break out the sweats! Lastly, I am looking to expand my shoe collection for school time and a herringbone patterned Tom's with a teal bottom will do just the trick! Tell me below if you love any of these items or what you are lusting over this week!

Queen Vic


Blogging World,
 I am back! After a long hiatus I have returned to this wonderful hobby of mine. To get back in the swing of things I'm gonna talk to ya'll about a nail polish I have been loving this fall. It is by a wonderful british brand called Butter London and it's name is Queen Vic.

 If there's two things I love in life it's nail polish and british royals so this polish is just my cup of tea (okay enough of the british quips...).
In all reality, Queen Vic is a beautiful cranberry colored polish that is perfect for the fall and winter seasons.


 It is super pigmented and in fact looks rather decent after just one coat. However I did end up applying to because I feel nail naked if I only leave one!
Please Excuse the Awful Job I did Painting my Nails here!

Queen Vic is thankfully part of Butter's permanent range so you can pick it up anytime. They retail for around 15 dollars and can be found at both Sephora and Ulta. Let me know your favorite fall or Butter shades in the comments below! Thanks for reading!

I haven't done a blog post in quite a while! Between being on holiday and a bunch of school work it's been tough to find a few extra minutes to blog! Hopefully this post will throw me back in the loop. For my weekly wants this week, I'm going pretty spring accessory heavy!
 The bag is this amazing City Office Bag from Zara. I've seen Erica Fae with it and am now lusting over it myself! The scarf is from Gap and I have always loved the mix of colors coral and pink, so this really caught my eye the other day.
As for the nail polish, I've never tried anything from Illamasqua but have been considering wading into the pool with a nail polish. This color is beautiful and singing Spring to my ears! I don't even think I have anything like it in my obnoxiously sized collection either! Bonus!
These boots are from a website I've never shopped called Necessary Clothing. My best friend swears by the site and these boots are so beautiful and cheaply priced I might pick them up. Lastly, this beautiful galaxy tank from Forever 21. I'm on the space trend bandwagon these days and would love to add this pink hued addition! That's all for this week, keep a look out for new posts soon!

This week my wants are truly showing my spring fever. First off is this lovely see through tote with a neon touch. I'm going to California for Spring Break and this would make a great pool bag! Two things from Sephora I need in my life are his Bobbi Brown eyeliner in Espresso Ink and Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau Fresh perfume. I love this scent and it is the perfect transition smell to spring. As for the eyeliner, I've really gotten into gel ones recently but black is very harsh for everyday so I'm thinking this brown will be more suitable every day. The sandals are from Nasty Gal and are just simply amazing. I'm confused wether or not they are JC's or not, if you know please tell me below! They are sexy and tough looking for spring which makes me simply cheery. Lastly is this amazing Boston Celtics tee from Urban Outfitters. I am a Celtics fan and just love the look of this tee, it's like nothing I've seen before. I also like how it is a girls shirt with a team logo, but is not super girly or frilly like so many sports pieces tend to be for women. That's all this week let me know what you think of my picks and if you have any of them!

Mario Badescu Drying Lotion





There are only a few things I really don't feel guilty splurging on when it comes to beauty items. Skincare falls under the not-guilty category. The Mario Badescu skincare line has caught my eye for quite some time, the price tags not so much. However when it came down to it I decided a few months ago to pick up the drying lotion in the line. Boy am I glad  I did! The drying lotion is meant to "dry up" any blemishes you have on your face over night. It actually works quite well too! It's not a overnight miracle in a bottle, but it really does help shrink the size and redness of the spot. The application is easier than I would of thought at first. You just need a cotton bud, dip it into the pink sediment at the bottom of the bottle and directly apply to your spot! I highly recommend this product and hope to try more of this skincare line soon. Let me know in a comment if there is anything in particular you suggest!

These are the things I'm lusting after this week. The skirt and denim vest are great transitional pieces into spring that I would love to pick up. I've been obsessed with new face products lately and this primer and foundation are top of my list. Oh and of course, the new Nicki Minaj Viva Glam II for MAC is something I am heavily lusting over!

Give It A Whirl

Hello there!
 My name is Jenn and this is my new blog. I really love beauty,fashion, style and art and wanted to put all those energies into one area. Wah-lah the concept of my blog was born.

This is a light and fun project I've started which are always the best so I am excited to dive right in! Feel free to comment on any of my posts, I love some feedback (I'm biting my tongue saying that now but alas I do mean it)! Well that's all I can scribble down for now, talk to you soon.
