Well it's finally the last day of 2016. It's been a rough year for a lot of us so I'm really looking forward to January. On top of my 2017 goals, here are some of my bucket list items for January 2017:
I have a paranoid fear of shattering my phone. I've seen it happening so many times with my friends and even my brother and I am so scared that it will happen to me. That's why I'm okay with dropping a few extra bucks to make sure my iPhone is protected and it's also why I was eager to work with Caseapp when they reached out to me! Caseapp is a company that allows you to create custom phone and laptop cases. They offer cases for iPhone and Samsung, glossy and matte, and regular hardshell and extra hardshell (which has a silicone bumper). I got an iPhone case with the extra protection (again, I'm a nut about the protection for my phone) and added my own design. There were a couple of hiccups with my order but they were all resolved in a timely manner (I'll get to that in a minute).
I can't believe that winter is only actually starting tomorrow but today is the last official day of Autumn! It's a bit hard to take in considering how cold it's been the last few weeks but here we are. And here are a few things I absolutely loved this past Fall:
Since my new short haircut, I had to come up with a new way to style my hair. When my hair was longer I didn't really have to worry too much about volume just because I have a LOT of hair (though it's very fine), but I think short hair can sometimes emphasize the fineness of my strands.

I got caught up with way too many things and didn't manage to post this up over the weekend, but these are the lipsticks I used during week two of the Lipstick Challenge! Here were the prompts and the colors I used:
You ever hear of comfort food? I have comfort books - books that I can go back to time and again that make me feel warm and good inside. I'm sure many of you guys have that too! You know when you're feeling sad or down and you reach for a book that's always inspiring and makes you laugh (that can't be just me, can it?) I want to share my list of comfort books with you guys today!
Stephanie invited me to participate in a month-long Lipstick Challenge where a group of bloggers all came up with prompts and every weekday we'll create a look based on the prompt. I'm not super happy with the way these photos turned out (I promise I'll do much better next week), but here are my interpretations:
December 1: Wild Card
I created a heart shape on my lips!
It's finally December and we're one month closer to the new year! November was an insane month, from the election to Thanksgiving, November seemed longer than it actually was in some respects. I'm excited about December though, I love the Holidays! Here are just a few things I want to accomplish by the end of the year:
