christmas bedroom decorating idea's

sooo as per usual, plans have changed here in my house and I'm home for christmas ... well off to nyc for christmas eve and home for christmas day. but when arriving home i walked into both a messy and blue (literally though my room is blue) room. sooo i decided to clean up and dress it up.
after looking at alanna's blog, i was inspired to post this. so here are a few easy 
last minute decorations and some diy idea's for your bedroom for christmas.

if you have browsed over at alanna's post you can see that she and i did the same thing. these have been in my room since august. i decided that instead of having them go up and down on the walls, i just put them around my headboard. i used lights that have white wire so that they would match my headboard as well as my room. 

if your friends with me on facebook, or if you follow me on twitter, you will see that i made a diy video on how to make these super cute and easy mason jar snowglobes. also i purchased a candle from marshals with a christmas scent to it : Candy Shope Peppermint Bark.

many of you know that i keep blair, my mannequin, up all year round and since my senior prom she has been rockin this dress. i decided to add a little christmas spirit to her and put on the red chrimson bubble necklace that my big bree gave to me for my birthday. i also put my red bathrobe over her for a wintery chill effect and topped her off (literally) with my santa hat. how preshh, right? 

now up above my little night table stand if my white baby shelf. i have had this in my room since i was a baby, it has moved with me and gone through so much, but alas it still remains in tact. soo i took off all my blue decorations and added some garland i got at michaels for 70% off. i also went sifting through my basement for some old vintage christmas decorations and i found these old pals. three nutcrackers, each from different versions of the nutcracker i performed in, a mouse stuffed animal back from '94 and some vintage christmas ornament escc candle holders! 

ahhh literally my favorite part of my room. my first teddy bear with his christmas santa robe finally was resurrected. then i went ahead and made this awesome centerpiece from my old vase and old wreath trinckets. this literally adds that vintage vibe to my room and i am completly obsessed.

{ pssst. also check out my upcoming  post on how to make this fresh and presh christmas pine 
centerpiece/decoration for your room or your christmas table }

last but not least, I put up my classic red christmas tree (not pictured) and its fake sorry i hate fake christmas trees. #sorrynotsorry but below i found some old plaid fabric that i used for the skirt of the tree and i made these little peppermint boxes with two tray boxes i picked up at the dollar store. i simply glued those two together and fit some white tissue paper between the handles to make it look a little bit more like a peppermint candy. so cute, so fun, so easy.  

** also feel free to check out my room tour from this summer, some things have changed, but if you were wondering, this is what my room looks like, on the off christmas season! **

haulidays : drugstore haul

lindsey is back home and thank goodness!! i have had the most amazing weekend with two of my very good friends in new york city! we had so much fun venturing out into the big nyc and saw two broadway shows, took a midnight adventure tour, tried chestnut (they are repulsive and its without the shell) and we basically took on nyc in about 50+ hours!

with being home that means i get to drive, which means i get to go shopping!! i swear i should be a personal shopper when i am older haha! but anyways, this everything i got yesterday at the drugstore. its not really much of a haul, but hey it counts as a haul, right? 


what i got : 

jergens natural glow foam : i have used this before, reccomended by lanni and schmegzz, but this one was on sale for $2.50 at my local cvs sooo with me being snow white and all, i popped it into my cart hoping to be that bronze goddess... well maybe. 

ice breakers ice cubes in spearmint : i have had this gum in my car i think since i have even owned my own car. this was a total must, especially because im out of all of my old pack (thanks mom and dad).

burts bee's ultra conditioning lip balm : oh my gosh you guys. i have never ever tried this one from burt's bees before, but i am in utter love with it, although it does make my lips a little white... it still makes them super lush and super soft.

carmex cherry lip balm : i have never used carmex before, megs told me to try it a bunch of time because she uses it like 24/7 (but she loves the vaseline one haha) so i was like why not just get myself a third chapstick. i really like it, not my favorite, but it helps condition your lips. 

eos sweet mint chapstick : i can not tell you all how much i love this product. i never finish a chastic and i finished this little guy in a semester, soooo i had to get another one, along with the other chappies. 

venus spa breeze razor : okay, so this was my first time getting a "grown up razor" haha i have used my other one from venus for about well since 6th grade now and decided to move onto a smaller and more powerful one. i used it last night you guys and i am obsessed! it got everything off, like POOF.

rose paper mask : i have never used this before, until about twenty minutes ago!! if your friends with me on snapchat, or if your ali or ej, you would have seen my phantom face from this mask but it seriously works wonders & makes your face smell like roses. 

simple faacial cleansing whipes : soooo after watching lindsey (not me) beautybaby44 on youtube for like ever, i have heard her, as well as other youtubers thrive about these makeup remover whipes. at first i was like umm theses dont work, well they actually do, it just takes time (like longer than i am used to) but it really gets EVERYTHING off!! i absolutely love em. 

skintamate mango shaving cream : literally the best shaving cream in the universe. this is like five bucks and it lasts like forever!! and above all, i absolutely love the scent of this shaving cream.

scunci hairties : these are such a classic purchase for myself. although i love my diy homemade hair ties, these ones really hold my messy buns up and together. 

dove deodorant : sooo finding a perfect deodorant has been a struggle for a while now, and i have been using a bunch of different brands, but for some reason i picked up this one, love the consistancy of it and love love love the scent, it is so pure and fresh.

finals week : as told by disney characters

soo finals week has hit us college students hard. like a brick wall, or in miley cyrus' case, a wrecking ball. lately i have been going on facebook during my study breaks and have seen so many funny different articles for finals, so idecided that with the help of some of my disney pals, i could show you guys how my finals week has looked and is going to look. i hope you enjoy & good luck on finals!! 
sunday night before finals week hits and everyone and their mother hits the library, no they book it :

after looking for what seems to be hours you finally find a table in the library that you can sit at with your friends and you're all like: 

so you sit down and start working/studying and then the next thing you know, 
two hours later you are on pintrest looking up crafts & food. then your friends start hardcore judging:

but then you realize you have another two more days until the final, so its really
 no big deal and you just let it roll off and continue studying:

 after about another hour or so of doing work, you just are so sick of doing work and want to procrastinate, but all your friends are working really hard, so you just force yourself to push through it:

at the library your friends are all like :

and then you're stittin there like : 

you realize that it is around midnight and your friends are all leaving
 because they are tired, but you remind them that sleep is for the weak :

then about a half hour later you find yourself packing up to go
 back to your room and to study there, but then this ends up happening:

when you finally see your friends the next day, 
you ask them how their finals went and they are all like: 

they all say that they all failed their finals,  
but you're there to reassure them: 

so after eating chipotle and visiting starbucks for the millionth time, you all just go back to the library, searching high and low for a seat, or a table. of corse there are no seats to sit at so you 
go into different a building looking for a room to study in and you're like:

you finally find a room and so you sit down to power though all your work. 
after a solid two hours you feel so confident about all the material and are so prepared for the final:

so after about ten thousand hour of studying you and your friends are all like : 

so you head back to your room to get a good nights sleep before the big final. 
then the next morning you wake up and realize you forgot to 
study about three chapters and your screwed:

and then you text your mom freaking out and 
then your mom replies :

so your just like :

and then you ralize your test is in fifteen minutes and its 
all the way across campus, so you book its your job :

you get there, take the test and actually think you did fine.
 so you leave that room and your just like: 

then finals are finally over, and you and your friends are all like: 

then you get an email from your professors that grades are up, 
so you check and then this happens :

so you text your friends asking them how they did and they all 
text you back saying that they basically all got A's and you're like:

so you just roll it off, you did well for the most part. you dont 
have to think about school for another month:

then in the car ride home your parents are 
all like "how did you do on finals?" and your just like:

black friday haul 2013 : sephora

lindsey did some damage this week guys, and by some i mean a ton. 
haha, lets start with i went black friday shopping. and i somehow found myself in sephora just glancing on the shelves... glancing soon turned into some shopping. 

so i really didnt go overboard with the amount of stuff i got, but i did spend a pretty penny for some of it! haha hope you all enjoy! and i hope to do a review of the products soon. 

so the first thing i picked up was the tarte trio pack of the tarte of giving. this pack was about $10 on a black friday special at sephora. i haven't used any of these products yet but i am really excited to do so!

what's inside :
a tarte mini pure maracuja oil : 
This undiluted organic and moisturizing maracuja oil quickly absorbs for firmer, brighter, smoother skin. Pure maracuja oil is rich in vitamin C, so skin appears instantly brighter and more radiant, as well as essential fatty acids (EFAs), a requirement for healthy skin cells that the body cannot produce on its own. EFA deficiency can result in the breakdown of essential skin cells which causes skin to appear dry and aged. By supplementing skin with pure maracuja oil, you are infusing life back into dull skin and replenishing EFAs to rapidly rebuild and repair. This potent antiaging elixir that has anti-inflammatory benefits promotes active skin recovery and delivers maximum hydration without any greasy or filmy feel

a tarte mini amazonian clay finishing powder :
This translucent, silky finishing powder keeps makeup in place without ever appearing chalky and mattifies skin by removing excess surface oil. 
This powder can even be used alone as a treatment to reap all the benefits of Amazonian clay.

& a tarte mini lights, camera, lashes mascara : 
Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes! 4-in-1 Mascara could be considered a push-up bra for your lashes—a 4-in-1 (lengthening, curling, volumizing, and conditioning) dermatologist- and clinically-proven to increase the appearance of lash volume by 424% after applying giving dramatic, thick and sexy lashes.

after picking up the tarte mini pack i remembered there was something i wanted, no needed to get and it was this beautifulness. the too faced a few of my favorite things palette.

guys, this palette can not be put into words other than sheer perfection. i picked up this bad by for $56 and it was the last one in my store ( haha...sorry, i just had to ). the palate came with two little samples of their products, the too faced better than sex mascara and the too faced lip injection color bomb “bee sting”, which was a limited edition lip injection for this palate. 

ohmygoid you guys all the eyeshadows are very amazing quality, they are highly pigmented, and easy to blend together! i also love love love the names of the colors, they are just like the sound of music!

here are the eyeshadow colors in order of left to right: 
– Snowflakes –  Whiskers on Kittens – Chocolate Milk –  Moon on their Wings – Dark Chocolate – – Cream Colored Ponies – Honey Honey – Busch de Noel – Evergreen – Blue Satin Sashes - Coquet – – Taffy – Crisp Apple Strudel – Woolen Mittens – SoirĂ©e - Tinsel - Bluff –
  – Ooh La Orchid – Party Time – Pure Glam–

here are the blush colors & the bronzer colors in order of left to right: 
– Melt into Spring – Raindrops on Roses – Chocolate Soleil – Sun Bunny –

( fun fact, if you purchased all of these products on its own then it would be roughly $436 )

the last thing i got was actually my 500 point perk. if any of you are a VIB, then you know what this is! i finally spent got 500 points and put it towards this bad boy, the honey marc jacobs trio set.
what's inside :
a mini ( literally the size of my pinky ) honey rollerball
This buzzing fragrance energizes with the freshness of green pear and a bright splash of fruity punch and juicy mandarin. Orange blossom resides at the heart of the fragrance and mingles with the nectars of honeysuckle and peach for a note of sparkling femininity. Honey, vanilla, and smooth woods dry down to a warm, golden base.
