Christmas Cookies!

I don't know if it's just me but making Christmas cookies puts my in such a festive mood. With Christmas tune playing on loop and helping my mom make them is just the best thing ever. We kind of make cookies from starch but we use a mix but I think it's homemade good anyway. I love cutting the shape out for each one making a tree then a star is soo much fun. 

Then we get to frost them a kinds of colors from green to red pretty much a Christmas theme.

What's puts you in a Christmas mood? Do you make Christmas cookies?

Christmas Tag!

I was never tagged by anyone to do this tag but I thought it looked really cute to do so let's get right into it.

I have always opened my gifts on Christmas morning but I do go to grandparent's house and open some family gift there that I wouldn't be spending Christmas morning with.

All I want for Christmas is you by Mariah Carey. That song just puts me in a Christmas mood and I sang along to it with it on full blast all December.

Black Friday Haul!

I only went to target and got these amazing items. I also got the Sims 4 which I have been wanting since it came out.

Sims 4 Game

I was so excited to get this game I couldn't wait till Christmas to get it. I'm so glad I got it too the graphic are amazing, creating your sims is really cool. They are so many options and looks for the sims. I'm over the moon about this game! It is original $60 dollars but I got it for $35

Fuzzy Knee Socks

I have never had knee socks and these looked so cute. I just went with grey because it goes with everything. They are sooo fuzzy and keep my feet and legs warm. Prefect for winter.

Computer Mouse

I thought a mouse would be good to have if I was getting sims 4 because I don't really have a mouse.


I got 16 candles and Chef if you haven't seen these movies then you should. 16 candles is a such a classic and chef I watched for the first time a week ago and fell in love. These are must see movies.

Hope you liked this post what did you get when Black Friday shopping?

Products I Regret Buying

Jergens Natural Glow Tanning Lotion

I regret buying this product because it didn't add much color. I didn't look any tanner after using this for a week or so. I do love the smell of this product though that was the only thing that I liked.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer 

I have heard so many good things about this product. Everyone seems to love it. It claims to cover dark circles but it doesn't. For me I have really bad dark circles in the morning and I need something to work really quick and cover them up. I do like this product for a primer even though that's not what it is for. I love to use it before I put on my eyeshadow it just lasts much longer.

Wet N' Wild Megalast Matt lipstick in Red Stoplight

I wanted to try a red lipstick so I went with this but it is way to bright for me. I love the color in the tube but not on. It very bright and isn't what I was going for. I really do love Wet N' Wild lipstick but this was disappointing. 

Maybelline Baby Lips

This product has been raved about by so many people but I didn't like it. It very waxy and doesn't moisturize my lips at all. The wax just stays on my lips and is greasy.

ELF Eyelash Curler

It's not that this product does do a good job with curling your lashes. I just rarely curl my lashes so I regret buying this when I never use it. But it was only $1 dollar so I can't complain.

Thanksgiving Being Thankful

image from tumblr

Thanksgiving isn't all about the delicious food we are going to eat even though that's is the most of us enjoy. Thanksgiving is being thankful for what you have I thought I would make a list of what I'm thankful for.

-My family
-My dog Benji
-My friends
-That I'm healthy 
-That I'm doing well in school

Being thankful can be for anything is doesn't have to be what I'm thankful for. 

What are you thankful for?

Bath&Body Haul!

I was soo excited when the Holiday scents for Bath&Body came out that I had to buy some of them. 

Winter Candy Apple Hand Santizer, Body Wash and Wallflower.

I was really excited to try the scent Winter Candy apple because I have hear so many good things about it. The scent is very similar to Fresh Market Apple which is one of my favorite scents ever. Can't wait to try these and tell you what I think.

Vanilla Bean Noel Wallflower

I really liked this scent it was vanilla (of course) which I love the scent of and it smells a bit similar to frosted cupcake wallflower I used up that I loved but they don't make it around this time which I really want so I went with this because it was the closes I could find.

Hope you like my post. What's your favorite Bath&Body Scent?

Review: Clinique Shadow Palette

I have been using this palette lately and I really like it. It's the Clinique High Impact Eye Shadow Trio with the shades Sugar Sugar, South Beach and Shameless. It's very pigmented and goes on well. It stays on pretty well if you use a primer but in my case I just use my concealer.  I only use the white and dark brown. I put the white all over my lid and then put the brown in my crease. It creates a really nice smokey eye and looks good for everyday or a night out. 

I would recommend this palette if you want one that is small and good for on the go. 

What's your favorite eye shadow palette right now?

TV Shows!

Thought I would share some TV shows I like. 

Image from tumblr


I started watching Awkward about a year ago and fell in love. Matty is the best looking guy in the world. I liked that it wasn't like other TV shows I liked that you could relate to some of the things going on. You could also laughing and smile at times with this show. The characters were so relate able and you just wanted to be friends with all of them. If you haven't checked out this show you should.

Finding Carter

This is a new show that came out this year and I loved it from the first episode. It pretty different from any other show and I really liked it. The show is funny, sad and shows true friendship and family. Carter is by far my favorite character she is so witty and sarcastic I think she is just like me.

image from tumblr


I have been watching this show for a while and I love it. It all about family and what they are going through. It is so relate able  and so times really funny. My favorite character  is Amber because she is so funny, sarcastic and she doesn't really care what people think. Sadly this is the last year of the show wish it could be on longer.

What are some of your favorite TV shows?

3.) What’s the story behind your blog name?

There's not really a story behind my blog name. I just randomly came up with it. I guess because I'm pretty awkward and don't have many friends that's why. I think we all are kind of awkward in our own way though. What's life like without a little awkwardness. :D

When I'm not blogging I write stories and hang out with friends.
