Beautiful & Charming Tuscany, Italy
I watched Under the Tuscan Sun before they took it off Netflix, and it was immediately added to my list of places to visit. Beautiful!

What's your favorite LUSH bath bomb/product??

24 signs that you're the Nick Miller of the group -- so funny! Haha, I love New Girl!

Where are they now? The cast from Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide! So cool, some of these are so surprising!

I just want to live in New York.

I need this bag!

Always remember this.

Craving something like this right about now.

I've had this song on repeat for a while. What do you think of it? I think it takes a while to start liking it!

Hope your day is awesome :)

Loving: That the snow is melting! Finally! There is still a bunch on the ground, but it's slowly but surely starting to melt here in Massachusetts. Also, going to the gym. Lately I've been going a lot and I can tell that I've been loving it because I get exited to go once I wake up in the morning. The machines here at my school have a TV in each, which is awesome because when I can watch what I want it definitely makes the time go by faster, haha!
Watching: Hmmm pretty sure I've put this one on here before, but The Office! Old-y but good-y. I've been watching it on a constant loop in Netflix for so many months and it never gets old. I don't think I'll ever bring myself to enjoy the episodes after Steve Carell leaves though. Is anyone else like that?
Anticipating: A lot of things... but mostly warn weather I guess. I feel like this Winter has gone on for 3847 years and I'm SO ready for it to be over. But we're also selling our house and moving, so I'm excited to get into the new house. Plus, I've picked out my room and roommate for next school year and I'm pretty excited for that, but that's a while away. And this Summer I have a wedding and a bunch of awesome stuff I'm really excited for. So, yeah! A lot!
Listening to: Oh, so much!! I really need to do a music post, because there have been so many great songs out lately. I love it. Whiskey by Marian HillArmy of Me by Bjork, Reflections by MisterWives, Cake Boy by Hoodie Allen, and so many more!
Working on: Trying to be more positive about everything in my life. I really need to enjoy the present and take in all the chances I have. I find myself constantly thinking about the future and all the things I could be doing with my life, and I just really need to take some time to make those things happen and focus on the now. I've really struggled this year with a lot of things and I'm really trying to just be happy and love my life right where I am.
Wishing: ...awkward. This one kind of contradicts my last paragraph, but I wish that I was doing more with my life. I feel like I'm just sitting in this dorm room wasting my life and not doing anything I really love to do. I want to change that, but it's actually pretty hard to change. I really wish that I could go out into the world and experience things that I've always wished to experience. Do I just have really high expectations in life or am I really just wasting my says sitting here at a college I don't even completely love?
Thanks for reading! What's currently going on in your life? Link back to me!

Some LUSH Reviews

I absolutely love reading reviews from real people. I never really buy things until I read the reviews of a product. Even better, I love when people make YouTube videos using the product, because that 100% shows the result of the product. Unfortunately, I don't really want to make videos AND I wouldn't really want to for LUSH products because that takes away the surprise! So here are some of the more recent things I've used and here's my opinions of each of them:
Dragon's Egg
So I don't want to give too much away because half the fun of bath bombs is seeing what they look like once you drop them in your bath. I'm really not a fan of sparkles, and while this one isn't crazy, it still has sparkles, so it wasn't my favorite. I've heard really good things about this one so I was kind of sad when there were so many sparkles (haha!). It took a while to get going after it was dropped in the water, but it was still cool. Just be prepared to rinse out your tub afterwards because SPARKLES.
Brazened Honey
I actually really love this! It didn't do wonders or anything, but it didn't make me break out either. I would say my favorite part about the fresh face masks are the smells. They smell so good! I would get this one again, forsure.
Stepping Stone
I LOVED this! It smells amazing and made my feet so smooth! It lasts a good 5-6 scrubs I would say. The only thing: don't use it while you're showering! Do it prior to showering or post shower. If you do it while you're in the shower it will crumble and fall apart and waste your money. Just a warning!
The Comforter
This was really great! It's a little pricey, so I kind of wish that I split it in half so I could use it multiple times, but it was still nice. I love a lot of bubbles in my bath and it definitely did that. Plus it smelled super good and turned the bath water pink, which was fun. I would get this one again, but I feel like all the bubble bars are pretty much the same, so I might go with a cheaper one.
So those are the ones I've used recently! Are there any other products you want to hear about? I've used a lot of things from LUSH, so I'd be happy to give you some more opinions.

Blind Devotion

You NEED to see this video! This husband really sets the bar when it comes to love. It's 9 minutes, but it's completely worth watching the entire thing. This is so great. Warning: you'll cry.

Today is my 19th birthday! I can't believe how fast time is going. It's a little weird being at college and having to celebrate here, but I'm so grateful for everyone who's making my day so special.

Have any of you tried MateFit? I'm currently on day 6 and have some mixed emotions about it. I definitely know that you have to do more in order to see results -- you have to clean up your diet and workout at least 30 minutes a day. I know a lot of people start seeing results within a few days, but I'm not seeing much of anything. I'm only drinking water (along with the tea) everyday and I do some sort of exercise every night. I think I need to do more cardio, so I'll try more of that. Anyway, I'd love to hear your thoughts about it!
