January Empties 2014

january empties

Holy empties. Finished lots of stuff this month, and it feels so good! I’m trying so hard to get rid of stuff, but then I buy more stuff. Such a viscous cycle. A few of this months products will surely be missed. I may replace some of them in the future, but like I said, I’m trying to finish some things.

Thirsty Thursday: Homemade Cranberry Infused Vodka

cranberry vodka

Happy Thursday everyone!!

If you’re a real like adult, you probably had to work today. I’m a graduate student, so I’m still on winter break. Either way, we all deserve a drink, right?

I have loved making my own infused vodkas for the past few years now. My sister got me into it when she made me basil vodka for my birthday. Last year, my boyfriend’s mom was trying to find cranberry vodka to make a martini with. We couldn’t find it anywhere, so this year I decided I would make my own to give to her as a Christmas present.

It’s yum.

Rant or Rave: Queen Helene Hair Conditioning Cream

Dry skin.

Dry hair.

It’s all I think about.

My recent haircut got rid of the dry dead ends on my hair, but I really need to keep up with the conditioning in order to keep them soft and silky.

In late October I reached 100 Followers, about a month and a half later I reached 200!

I also reached 50 Bloglovin followers.

I just wanted to thank all my followers new and old. I love when I log onto WordPress and see someone has liked a post or left a comment. It is amazing getting to communicate with people across the country, and across the world.

Blogging helps give a little meaning to my simple life. I go to school at night, and have an internship during the day. Blogging gives me something personal to do in the mist of all that ‘real life’.

I said a few weeks ago if I reached 2oo WordPress followers and 50 Bloglovin followers by 2014, I would do a giveaway. So it looks like I reached that goal!! Look out for a giveaway soon. I will probably wait till the holidays are over to start.

Rant or Rave: REN Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask

REN Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask

I first heard about the REN Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask from Essie Button and one day I was going to need it. A few weeks ago I finally bought it during Sephora’s VIB sale for 20% off. Honestly, I didn’t use it for about a week because I just wanted to stare at the box and have the bottle be unopened for a little bit.

During a much needed, mid finals, Sunday bath, I opened the box and put this too good use.

I’m in love.
