Gosh! I've been gone so long, it's like my fingers forgot how to type! With all the nuisances of everyday life, I've lacked posting, but have truly missed it. Some things you can expect from me are a travel diary of my shenanigans to occur this Thanksgiving, with maybe a recipe or two, some eye makeup tutorials, if my model consents to having her face plastered online, a book review of the thriller "Girl On the Train", and maybe a quick list of what I've read, and would I recommend it for others? Hopefully I will take some pictures and show you my re-designed makeup area. (spoiler: it's not very glam, but performs its job!)
I know that when we think of beauty we think of the mass industry that shows us beauty standards- flawlessly defined cheekbones, effortless curls, glowing skin, and a perfect figure.
I don't celebrate Christmas, but I know many of you out on the world wide web do! So, here are some idea for stocking stuffers/gifts for your besties!
1) Fresh Sugar Lip Polish, $22.50
This lip scrub really exfoliates your lips, leaving them silky smooth. Lush also makes some really yummy ones, like bubblegum and popcorn. Mmmmm.... I might eat it instead of using it....
2) Personalized Version of "Alice's Adventures In Wonderland", $29.95
Okay, so this is tiny bit pricey for a novel, but it's a classic and personalized! Plus, it's my fave book ever!
3) Crystal Flurry Studs Earrings, $28
Bauble Bar always has really cute jewelry that instantly makes an outfit, and sometimes their jewelry can be a bit costume-y, but I really love these ones!
4) Limited Edition EOS Balm, $9.99
I NEED and love lip balm, and I adore these ones, especially with tropical scents like Orange Blossom and Pink Grapefruit. The dome shaped top is a pretty innovative idea as well, so you don't get that rim of gunk. Balm= Important x10 during the winter.
5) J. Crew Color-block Socks, $12.50
Socks are kind of a lame gift, but whatever, they're cute and your feet can get super cold.
6) Contigo Autoseal Kangaroo Water Bottle with Pocket, $13.99
This is a great gift for a fitness enthusiast, or those people who really need to keep to their New Year's resolution. It has little compartment, so they can keep some small things in there, like lip balm or cash.
7) Dream Essentials Luxury Travel Sleep Mask, $19.95
For red-eye and overnight holiday fights you need this, so you can sleep a little bit more. It also comes with noise cancelling earbuds, so you can drone out that whiny child and rest up!
9) Lulu Lemon Ear Warmer, $26.00
With winter straight ahead, we can't abandon our ears now! In two different colors, this is toasty (and pretty!) way to keep to your ears free from the cold! Bonus: You'll sorta look like a ninja. Because earmuffs are weird- and who wears them anyway? Unless they're headphones made to look like earmuffs.
10) FxA Sienna Earbuds, $14.99
I'm always looking for a way to listen to music with out those bland Apple earbuds that come with your purchase- and these hit the bulls-eye! They're pink, navy, and white with a sophisticated pattern.
11) 'You Go Glenn Coco!' Sweatshirt, $24.10
"You go Glenn Coco!" is probably one of my favorite lines from Mean Girls. (But then again, I can quote like, the whole movie.) Show that you're Glenn Coco awesome and gather your candy canes (4!) in this sweatshirt.
12) Giant Gummy Bear, $28.44
A GIANT GUMMY BEAR!!! YES! This is perfect for the sweet tooth in your life, but beware: You might eat it before you unwrap it! Imagine sinking your teeth into all that sugar...yum... Sadly, it looks like they only have it in cherry for now. :(
13) C-3PO Flash Drive 8GB, $19.99
I'm pretty sure a techie would love this- a super duper adorable flash drive. And, Star Wars! Have this little droid make your boring project the slightest bit more bearable.
14) Pinterest Account
If you know me, I have an acute case Pinterest-itis, causing me to be on the app for hours. If you force your friends to create an account or make them create a wish list board, you won't ever have to guess again!
15) Aqua Lotus Ring Holder, $18.00
For the friend who has a Bohemian style or who's closet is overflowing with jewelry- this will corral their spare rings and provide some shelf beauty.
16) 'Dioriffic - Golden Shock' Top Coat, $28.00
This nail polish is great with a nude base or holiday party ready with some red polish underneath.
17) B.P. Faux Fur Infinity Scarf, $29.00
Keep your friend's neck cozy without killing an animal for it! This deliciously warm infinity scarf is made out of faux fur and adds an air of elegance to any outfit- even jeans and a sweater!
19) B.P. 'Best Friends' Cuffs, $18
The ultimate bff gift- best friends bracelets! And with two of them costing $18, they're really only $9 each. Much more glam than some unfashionable best friends necklace that you would wear as a six year old.
20) 'Clueless' Pencils, $8.00
'Clueless', next to Mean Girls, is one of my favorite movies. Give your friend some witty sayings that she can view everyday while she jots down a note!
21) Walker Art- Bird Letter Opener, $16
This is for the person in your life who still sends and receives charming snail mail.
22) Sushi Mini Stapler, $14.94
Do you have a friend who is obsessed with anime, manga, food, or just plain sushi? Give them this stapler then!
23) Gamer Case for iPhone, $16.75
You should know at least one person who is always fiddling with their phone 24/7. Give them a maze to solve that's a case for their phone!
24) Assorted Mac Decals, $9.99
Jazz up your friend's laptop with these cute decals!
25) Metallic Temporary Tattoo's, $6.00
Temporary tattoo's are great party favors, but these come in gold! Get a watch, necklace, bird, and many others!
26) Cejon Houndstooth Velvet Gloves, $27.00
This fabulous gloves are on sale for $27! Have you ever seen something so utterly fashionable for the cold weather? The person you give these to will treasure these forever! (Until next season.)
27) Sriracha 2 Go, $7.00
Sriracha an now be transported anywhere! At a mere 1.25 ounces, you can bring it on a plane as well! Spicy food lovers unite! It's refillable, as well.
28) Fred and Friends 'The End' Bookends, $16.69
It's the end! Of the bookshelf, that is. Be humorous and well rounded with these bookends.
29) Emoji Stickers, $12.00
We all know that person who communicates only in emojis- so get them these stickers!
30) Marc Jacobs Mini 'Bookmarc's', $9.00
I don't think I've ever seen Marc Jacobs have something so cheap! Snatch it up for your favorite bookworm! *Ahem, ahem, me.*
I'm pretty sure one of these gifts will strike a chord with your friend or you'll want of these so much you'll buy it for yourself, or instead mean to buy it for someone but end up using it anyways. Have a lovely day!
Hello everyone! I havn't done much "nerdy" stuff, so I thought maybe I'd do some jokes. Have a lovely day!

A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king" ~J.R.R. Tolkien
A nerdy girl who loves fashion and food! I will mainly blog about fashion and nerdy stuff, but I do tons of lifestyle posts.
