Currently Obsessed: With Glasses!

Ever since I found a pair of sunglasses that fit my little face without making me look ridiculous, I became a huge fan of round sunglasses. Every other fair of sunglasses seemed to make me look like a freaky bug, it was just a horrible sight. I found my perfect pair or sunnies on a rack in Spencer's at the mall. They cost me fifteen bucks, and I don't know how good or bad that is for some mall sunnies, but I figured they were worth every cent. Those glasses lasted me a good three months, but sadly, after reaching into my purse I found a terrifying sight; THEY WERE BROKEN.

I planned on going back to the mall to look for the exact same pair, or buying them from the online shop, until I stumbled upon a perfectly priced sunglass website with the most stylish sunglasses ever, ZEROUV.COM! I figured it was just a typical shop of plain old aviators, but it wasn't! Here are my favorite pairs of sunglasses, all ranging from nine to eleven dollars. (these were all under the round category)
 I ended up buying two pairs for a total of fifteen dollars. I love this site, they gave me free shipping, and 5% off my first purchase. I will definitely be shopping there again. Here are the two pairs I bought:

How do you feel about these sunglasses? Check out the site and let me know what are your faves!

Life Update: I got a tattoo!

This tattoo is something I've been planning for around a year or so. I used to ride the bus to school and start my mornings off listening to a band called Dance Gavin Dance, a post-hardcore band that yes, does include some "screaming" I would listen to their songs and read the lyrics and decide just what perfect few lines I should get permanently marked on my body and then I found them, in a song that isn't even their most famous one.
"Oh, the thought, we are the flaws that make us"
how beautiful is that? I fell in love.
Well that's that backstory, now lets dive in to the pictures!

Me signing my arm away.
 Me looking gross
The -what is it called?- stencil? of my tattoo.


My artist was super cool, we're even planning a portrait of my kitty cat for my thigh.
This was my first tattoo but definitely not my last!


 Do you want/have any tattoos?

Chia Pudding (AKA Healthy Tapioca!)

Don't you just love when you look at a recipe and you can do it without needing to go out and buy anything? I do! And that's basically what happened with this chia pudding recipe AnneOrShine on youtube shared. I bought my chia seeds during a sale at some local health store, and let me just say CHIA SEEDS ARE EXPENSIVE! Chia seeds are a growing topic, joining delicious foods such as avocados and acai berries on the list of ◦SUPER FOODS◦ which do great things to our bodies. Chia seeds are no longer for our chia pets, they're known to be an excellent source of fiber, give s strong bones and teeth, fight fat, and are rich in omega 3s which do all kinds of healthy junk for ya.

Watch the video I watched:

Of course, she went all out and added all kinds of yummy things to her puddings, but I stuck to the basic recipe:
◦1 Part Chia Seeds
◦3 Parts Dairy
◦As Much Sweetner As You Wish
Chill the mixture for a few hours or a day.

I had a small jar so I used 1/2 a cup of chia seeds and 1 1/2 cups of milk and just taste tested and added *unhealthy* plain old sugar. If you choose not to add a sweetener you might be left there with a look of "is that ALL" so I suggest you do! Personally I think the 1:3 ratio still left me with too much chia in my mix, next time I'll probably use a little less.
Don't worry about whether or not your seeds are white, I believe it's purely worth the aesthetic and it's just cheaper to stay with the unbleached chia seeds (like mine).

My final product, after chilling for about eight hours. It makes my mouth happy and my tummy as well.

Have you jumped on the chia train?

♡May Favorites♡

Sephora Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover. I love this stuff, I've started paying attention to how I remove my eye makeup and I let this soak up all my mascara/eyeliner/eyeshadow and I feel so clean. I've already finished my first bottle and had to go back for more. Buy it here
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in "Antwerp". I've barely jumped onto the nyx bandwagon after Claire Marshall listed their butter gloss in "Creme Brûlée" for one of her favorites. I love how these lip creams are matte because they give me the look that I'm wearing lipstick but without the drying effect lipsticks give me. This color is a corally pink that isn't too crazy for everyday wear. I got complimented on it the first day I wore it. Buy it here
Anastasia Brow Wiz in "Granite". This product was also listed as one of Claire Marshall's favorites (I'm obsessed with her to be honest) and so I went out to try it for myself. I already had pretty great eyebrows, I don't mean to brag, but I needed some help with my arch. I love that it comes in a color dark enough to match my brows but light enough to avoid looking like a filled my brows in with eyeliner! Buy it here
Studio Gear CC Cream in "Natural". When I received this product gratis about a month or two ago I figured I would wear it under my normal foundation. This hydrating color correcting cream does enough for my skin to where I wear it alone. I will definitely need to go buy some more! (When I get the money for it) Buy it here

One thing I did not picture here is the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in "Trooper" I use this eyeliner daily and swear by it. I have been using this liner for about two years and do not plan on switching anytime soon. Be prepared to see it in future posts. BUY IT HERE

Also, here's my favorite song for the month! It's Stolen Dance by Milky Chance.

Have you tried any of these products? What do you love/loathe? Let me know!
