Girls Day

After a long week of classes, my friend, Kassidy, and I decided that we should do something fun to celebrate making it through another week.  Since Kassidy has an interview next week (*crosses fingers*), she really wanted to get her nails done.  Looking at the state of my fingernails *yikes*, I agreed.  We ended up going to this little nail shop called Diamond Nails in Duluth by the mall.  I had never realized it was there before but it was very nice on the inside. Very cute, and clean, and had a giant TV on the wall that played an endless Netflix-marathon of some HGTV show. YAS.
As you can tell from the picture, it was very busy (and is apparently busy all the time), I was glad we made an appointment!  
I decided that since I have never had acrylics before, I would do a gel manicure because it is supposed to last longer than regular nail polish.  And besides, they always do SUCH a better job than me; whenever I paint my own nails, it always look like I poured the polish directly onto my nails. A MESS.
Oooohh Look at all the colors!

I decided to go with a nice bright coral-orange color.  And a silver accent nail because why not.  I was feeling very spontaneous.  So crazy.  

The lady who did my nails was so lovely and she really cleaned up my nails to make them look nice.  I am very happy with them.
I am so jealous of Kassidy's nails.  They are like, my aesthetic.  I am obsessed with them.  She got a black matte nail with shiny black tips.  I think that I am going to get that done the next time I get my nails done!

Overall, I had such a fun time!  Sometimes, it's nice to just relax and not worry about homework or anything and just pamper yourself.  At least that's what I like to tell myself.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I will see you next week!

**Also, quick note, if you look over on the right sidebar, there are links to my Twitter, Instagram, and tumblr, as well as linked in the "Contact" tab.  I am pretty much always on those sites, so if you fancy a chat, hit me up on there!**
THANKS!

SPOOKTACULAR CUPCAKES

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Yesterday, I spent a good portion of my day baking some cupcakes because...well do I need to reason to make cupcakes?!  Anyways, as I don't have very many baking supplies to make homemade goods, I decided that a store bought box-mix and frosting would suffice, and of course it would be delicious no matter what.

Because it is October and Halloween is nearly upon us (EXCITING), I had to get everything Halloween-themed!  SO without further ado, here is my baking adventure:

Annnnnnnddddddd...here are my completely decorated cupcakes, with cream cheese frosting and ghost-shaped sprinkles. HOW CUTE.

They tasted AHHH-mazing (lol Halloween pun) and I had a fun time making them!

Until next time,

College Homecoming

Hello my lovely internet friends!
How are you today? You doing well?!  I certainly hope so.
What about me? Well thanks for asking!!  This past weekend was my college's homecoming.  Which is even more crazy because it's my LAST homecoming as a student.  INSANE. Where did the time go?!  My parents came up for the day, which was nice because I haven't seen them in a couple of weeks.  We started off the day by going to the parade.  Now...not to be a downer, but the parade was..kind of...a let down because it was literally only 5 minutes long with a total of 4 floats.  But that's fine because it was fun to see everyone in such a good, festive-y mood.  It really puts me in a celebratory mood!
Here is my school mascot (a St. Bernard) waving at all the parade watchers

After that was a whole bunch of pre-game festivities, mainly including tailgating, which was so delicious - everything from hamburgers to pasta salad!  The football game started at 4:30 pm.  It was such a nice day out - not too hot, not too cold, just enough, all you need is a light jacket (extra points if you get this reference ;) )  By half-time, we were winning 45-0. Amazing. And at the end, we won 53-13 (or something like that).

Overall, I had a very fun, last homecoming ever!  I hope to remember days like this in the future because it makes me realize how lucky I am to be able to attend such a wonderful school.

Until next time,
E
