I hope you're enjoying summer thus far! My giveaway winners will be posted soon after my classes are over, so keep entering and spread the word!

Giveaway... IT'S COMING! (Double or nothing? feat. Everlane)

Don't worry, I didn't forget!

The end of school is coming up within the next few weeks and I've just been busy with end of the year projects, assignments, and prepping for exams. I'm so sorry that I'm running behind. BUT! I do have a small preview for you guys of whats in the giveaway. I have more things but want it to be a surprise or I will announce them when I post my video. Here's a sneak preview:

How cute are these girls?!  Loveee

What's pictured: St. Ive's Mineral clay mask. I have this clay mask and absolutely love it. I have extremely sensitive skin and can't really use face washes to wash my face because my skin will break out literally to almost everything. I usually have to buy face cleansing wipes or soap free facial wash. I was hesitant to try this face mask but it worked really well and my face felt so much cleaner and more smooth once I took it off. Whether you have sensitive or normal skin, I think you'll love this mask!

Angel Wing Ring from Forever 21, Size 8. I think this ring would make a really cute thumb ring. The average finger size is a size 7 and since your thumb is generally larger I got it in a size 8

Brown and Crystal accented bracelet from Urban Outfitters. Pretty much self explanatory. I thought the bracelet was really cute and semi-bohemian, great for spring!

Two necklaces from Forever 21. I just think their faces are adorable, haha!

Two pairs of earrings from Forever 21. One pair of white hoops (go well with pastel colors!) and one pair of over-sized gold dangle earrings.

Revlon lip butter. The one pictured is actually mine in the color berry smoothie. (Want to see it on? check out my NYX smoky eye tutorial!) Since certain colors work better for certain complexions, I thought the winner should be able to pick out their own color! So if you're chosen you'll be able to tell me which color you'd desire most and it'll be yours!

Nivea creme. Extremely hydrating creme that I carry around in my school bag for a small, travel-sized hand creme in a tin so I don't have to worry about it squirting out all over my textbooks, notebooks, computer, etc. if ones of them was laid on top of it.

Two ULTA professional nail polishes. One in the color Good Clean Fawn and one in the color South Beach. Ulta's normal nail polishes (the ones usually listed in the BOGO) I don't think are the best quality. These ones, however, I like a lot more and don't require as many coats. They're within the same price range of OPI and Essie and don't start to fade or chip as soon as the cheaper ones.

EOS lip balm. Oh. My. Goodness. I am so addicted to these it's insane. I probably own at least 6 of them. I keep one in my car, one sits on top of my dresser, one in each of my two school "totes", and a couple that get alternated between which purse I'm carrying. You guys these are honestly so hydrating and I love the packaging so so much. It reminds me of a little egg. I used to buy so many different lip balms: Neosporin, chapstick, carmex, and so many other random brands but after discovering EOS I haven't purchased anything else. I'm convinced: you will fall in love.

Here's your preview and there will be a few more items thrown in that I will either announce in my video (coming soon, cross your fingers my school work winds down!) or leave it as a little surprise!

Spring Diet: Put on Hault.

Since I haven't done any serious exercising since senior year of high school when I played lacrosse, I decided to start exercising during the spring since that was my usual time of year I would lose weight and get fit. I started run/walking 3.5 miles around my campus, stopped drinking pop, drink less juices, and increase my water intake. I started eating more fruits and veggies, less fried foods and less desserts (chocolate and ice cream: my addiction!)

But then... there was a remodel at the Target (my favorite store!) I go to; including the addition of a larger frozen food aisle and fresh produce. All was good and dandy, until I got to the ice cream freezer. Ciao Bella Mango Sorbet

I've never been much of a sherbert or sorbet person, but the packaging of this sorbet was eye catching and the mango flavor was completely gone, except for the one that I believe must've been faithfully waiting for me.
You guys, this sorbet will be the death of me - or my diet at least! While it is better than my occasional dietary splurge on a bowl of ice cream since it has no dairy which means no fat, the amount of it I've consumed is unimaginable. Luckily, this past weekend was Easter weekend and I returned home with it staying in my freezer at school otherwise I'm sure it could've been gone in two days! I'm almost out of my first container and am hoping that my Target has restocked it's supply because it's not sold anywhere else around here! (Yes, I looked it up on the website "store locator") But it being out of stock may be good on my diet ;)

Have you tried any of the Ciao Bella sorbets? Let me know which flavor is your favorite!
