Nothing beats a rainy, fall day with lit candles sprinkled around the room, with a cozy playlist on, reading a great new book. Music can put the finishing touch to any atmosphere that you want to create. I put together a playlist of songs that I feel that creates a cozy vibe, so whenever I put it on I can feel cozy.
The title of my playlist is A Cozy Fall Vibe and you can find on Spotify here.
Do you have a cozy fall playlist or music you only play during fall?
A few days ago, while out running errands I notice in one of the stores that they already had some Christmas things out. There in that store, it hit me that we only have three more months left in 2017!!! Where did the time go?!?!? It still feels like it should be May but unfortunately, we can’t turn back the clock. However, my favorite time of the year is here and I could not be more happy about it. I just love everything about the Fall and Winter. So, to end my year on a high note I want to achieve five goals before that clock hit midnight on December 31st.
Keep working on getting healthier
I just feel like I am not a healthy as I really could be. So I want to work on eating healthier and working out more. This way I can start to feel better about myself and feel more confident about my body. I know that it is going to be a little bit of a challenge coming up to the holiday season but I really want to be as healthy as I can. It not about losing the weight it just about becoming an all-around healthier person.
Get a job for what I went to school for
This goal is self-explanatory really. I am just ready to have a real job, so I am going to make it happen.
Put more effort into my blog
I really want to make my blog the best that it can be and this means really putting some effort into it. I haven’t really put the most effort into this blog up to this point and I think that is can show. I want to make sure that when I am working on a blog post I am putting everything that I can into the post.
Making A Budget
I spend way too much money on coffee and silly things that I don’t need.I just want to be aware of what I am spending my money on. Also with creating a budget, I want to start really saving money. This way I can be more money conscious, so when I get a job then I have money saved to get the things that I need for the move.
Get out of my comfort zone
I have gotten really comfortable in the last year or so and I want to push myself out of it. I don’t know how I am going to do this but I really want to work on it the best that I can!
I have been very lucky to have been introduced to traveling at such a young age when I went to go visit my sister in Japan. Even since then I have been compiling a list of places in the world that I want to visit before I die. Traveling is such an adventure and a life lesson all wrapped up in one. Not only do you get to meet new people, you get to lose yourself in a different world and learn something new about yourself. You don’t have to be rich to travel the world you just have to make it one of your priorities in life. I always joke with my mom that the only reason I work is so I can travel the world. My dream job would have to be to travel the world and discover new places. I have a feeling that this list will forever be changing.

Mascara is one of my favorite beauty products to use hands down. I am always so excited when it come to pick out a mascara that I want to wear for the day. When it comes to buying mascara I tend to stick with drugstore brands. Not only are they a great price but I feel that the formula is just as good or even better than some of the high-end brands. I really do have my favorite high-end mascaras but I tend to reach for a drugstore mascara more than the high-end one. I have narrow down my favorite to my top three that are totally worth buying from the drugstore.
Maybelline Lash Sensational
When I first bought this mascara and used it I could totally see why there was so much hype about this product.It made my lashes look longer, fuller and it did not clump at all.Which is everything that I want in a mascara regardless if it high-end or drugstore. I have repurchased the Lash Sensatioanl mascara multiple times and will keep buying it. I will always have this on hand in my makeup bag as a trusty go to. Also, what makes this a great mascara is that no matter what kind of make up you are wearing for the day, it goes. This is also great for days when you don’t want to wear any other make up but mascara just to make yourself look a little more put together. Great for when you get done with the gym and have some errands to do.
L’Oréal Voluminous Lash Paradise
This mascara has been out for a little bit now and I feel like everyone is talking about it in the beauty community. The L’Oréal Voluminous Lash Paradise is hands down one of THE best mascaras that I have tried. I also agree with a lot of other beauty lover that this is a great dupe for the Too Faced BTS mascara ,you are getting the same great look without the higher price tag. It makes my lashes look fuller, super long , does not clump or flake off. I can wear this all day and it still looks as good as when I first put it on. Even when you put on more than one coat of the mascara on my lashes still look just as amazing and not clumply. I could go one talking about this mascara for days if I wanted to do but if I where you I would run to the closest drugstore and pick yourself up one of these quick. Seriously go get your hands on this now.
Physicians Formula Organic Wear Fake Out
Physisans Formula is a brand that I feel that is not on a lot of peoples radars. They really have some great products like the Organic Wear Fake Out mascara. I love the way this mascara curls and adds volume to my lashes. Also, it has 100% natural ingredients which is a plus. The only thing that is a negitive for me was that it did not give me that “Fake ” lash look which I am okay with it,which is probabley why I love this mascara so much. It gives me a very natual looking lash would is great for daytime looks or when you dont want to wear a lot of make up. You really can’t go wrong with this mascara.
