Trick or Treat

This week has probably been the busiest week of college so far. With tests, studying, concerts, and trying to find time for a social life and sleep has sure been a challenge! This was a much needed weekend of Halloween parties and not once thinking about school. Friday night my family, Jeff and I went out to Oregano's Pizza for my dad's birthday dinner. Yum! Then went to a party at one of Jeff's friends houses from baseball. Sooo fun. Then Saturday night we got to dress up again for another party which was super fun also! Here are some pictures from the night.

I hope everyone had an amazing Halloween weekend like I did!

And happy birthday to my best friend in the world Kylie McKay Knutson♥

Last night Jeff and I went to the Wiz Khalifa concert! It was amazing. It was hands down the best concert I've ever been too. (so what that I've only been to like 3 concerts :) ) We bought some shirts and I tried to take some pictures, however I wasn't very successful :( Here are a few I took.

Umm amazing??

Hell Week

It is only Tuesday, and I am exhausted already. I have spend the last two days non-stop studying for my two tests tomorrow! Ahh wish me luck. I think I will do great on them. I have spent the rest of my time studying for my math exam on Thursday, which I won't be studying for tomorrow :) Why you might ask? Two words. Wiz Concert. So stinkin' excited! I'll be sure to try and take some pictures to share! Tonight however, I took some time off and painted my nails with one of my new colors(I will share all my new polish colors on a post after this busy week!) and choreographed my two hip-hop dances for my class on Thursday and Friday. I feel acomplished! Looking forward to some much needed fun time tomorrow night!

Artie Tailgate

Tonight Jeff and I went to the SCC homecoming tailgate which definitely wasn't what I expected. Normally when I think of tailgate I think of crowds of people, grilling, and of course little weenies. But instead there were booths with free cotton candy, popcorn, and our very own SCC chefs preparing hotdogs and hamburgers (no little weenies:/ ). Since Jeff had to go for his baseball team we stayed the whole time and planned on a date after. We tried going to PF Changs but it was rented out for the night so we decided to try Culinary Dropout. Oh my goodness. I loved it. It was the first time I had ever been there and it was to die for. It is definitely a chic restaurant and the food was delish! I totally recommend this place to anyone.
Here is the menu for you all to look at

I know I have been bad about posting on here but here are some of my new posts from the examiner.

I absolutely love this hairstyle. Here is a how-to video I found on Free Peoples blog.

Have a fabulous week♥

Vintage Finds

Yesterday when I was in Payson I purchased these amazing finds.

This vanity mirror was only $3 and I fell in love. Its new home is on my desk and it fits there perfectly.
These two framed mirrors are the beginning of my mirror collage that I would love to create after I collect more in the future. I just love the vintage-y look of a cluster of mirrors hanging together.

Thank you everyone for reading my articles for Examiner. I should have a new article by tomorrow or Monday.♥

Don't you hate having super split ends, dry, and damaged hair? I have found the perfect products to rejuvenate and nourish your "thirsty" locks.

1. Pearatin Hydrating Reconstructor

The first time I bought this product I FELL IN LOVE. Honestly, my hair could be so tangled and dry and right when I put a little of this on it, my hair felt so soft and then even more soft after washing it out. I would recommend this product to anyone.

2. It's A 10 Daily Miracle Conditioner

This product is just what it says a "miracle". I ended up purchasing this when the store I bought #1 from was out of stock. The employee said that these conditioners are very similar and that she loves both. So after hearing that and agreeing with her about how much I love product #1 I decided to buy the Daily Miracle Conditioner. I love this product just as much as the first one and both of the products have an amazing scent. Now my hair feels soft and healthy all the time.

Try these! I promise you will not be disappointed.

***I bought these products at Cosmo's beauty supply store, which is discounted, so I'm not sure what the price of both of these would be normally.

On Overload

So it is about that time again to pick classes for next semester. Why is it that I have like 50 things I want to do but can't decide what is right for me. I have been obsessed with writing lately journalism? I have been obsessed with make-up lately and my dream would be to get my professional make-up artist license. I absolutely love event planning (hence why I'm currently getting my communications degree). So all in all I am at a brick wall. There are so many things I would like to accomplish and my brain feels like its on overload. Oh and I also want to finish my bachelors degree somewhat faster then four years. I AM PHSYCO. Help?

Thank goodness it is Thursday tomorrow. Then 2 more days till my birthday. Yay!♥
