March Love In A Box || Blogger Swap.






Blogger Swap


This month I got paired up with Tracey from
Just a Trace . Her blog if you don't already know, is super cute and has a couple weekly series like: 'WTF Wednesdays' and 'Adventures in dating' which are really fun to read.

She emailed and asked what Sondra and I like, I told her girly, anything to do with England, green or pink and anything 60's or 70's.










I instantly fell in love with the cute make-up bag and the Keep Calm tin that had tea in it. I also claimed the Eos lip balm which smells like heaven! Sondra loved the scarf and the earrings that matched the scarf! hahah

Hello, Spring...are you there?



 
So I don't know about where everyone else lives but where I live, Winter doesn't seem to be letting up! One day it seems like spring could be on its way and the next day it's a blizzard with -18 temperatures!! Naturally, My Mom and I decided to go for a nice walk... My dear friend Sondra however, happens to be in sunny Cuba!! That lucky little duck.
 
 
 
A little snowstorm selfie...
                                                                          
                                         Took refuge at my Brothers house halfway through
                                                                This is his cat Felix!
I love cold drink in the cold
This is a delicious Reeses Pieces Milkshake with 700 calories.
oops.
And this is the field of my old highschool which I think
always looks pretty when it's all snowy!
 
 
Hope where ever you are now that it's sunny and warm!!

Shoppers Anonymous!

Ever since I was a little girl I've sort of had a shopping addiction. My parents used to say to me "you can never leave the store without something in your hand!" and that was very true! But I obviously learned that from somewhere, you aren't just born a compulsive shopper!! I still have this problem at the age of 20 where I go into a store and see so many things that I believe I need. But instead of buying it, now I carry around the item the whole time I'm in the store and then right at the last second decide 'Nope! I don't need this'. The crazy thing is that I don't even need to be buying things for myself.. I just love to buy things whether they're for Me or any other random person I can think of. I noticed that I'm getting much better at realizing 'need' versus 'want' but I think that because I'm a girl I'll always have that little voice in my head telling me "yeah, your closet will love this!"

                 

The beautiful NARS nail polish I walked away from at the store today even though, let's be honest, my nail polish collection could have totally benefited from it!
