Shopping Adventure

As my birthday is coming up, my parents have been asking me what I want. This year, instead of asking for presents, I've asked my parents to take me to Minnesota to visit the Mall of America! MOA has over 520 stores, where I can buy all kinds of things I can't get at home!

Here are some of the stores that I don't have near me that I'm really excited to visit:

You can find the full list of all the stores and restaurants MOA has here
I'm also excited to eat at the Rainforest Cafe! I don't think I'll ever get too old for that place. 
I'm really looking forward to this trip and can't wait to see what I'll find there! I just need to remember not to spend too much.
Have you ever been to MOA? Which stores/restaurants are your favorite?

Product Review: Avon Moisture Effective Eye Makeup Remover Lotion

I've been using this for a while, and I absolutely love it! It is very inexpensive, and Avon products are very easy to get a hold of. It's only $4.00, but I recently saw it on the Avon website for only $0.99!

I use this daily to take off my eye makeup, but it especially comes in handy when I have eyeliner wings or designs. 
Put just a dab of the lotion on a cotton ball and spread it around with your fingers. It doesn't take much to get the makeup off, so it is very long lasting!
Rub the cotton ball over your eye makeup, and it comes right off! I can usually take of the wings I make with liquid eyeliner in one swipe.
Since it's a lotion, it can make your skin feel a little oily if you use too much, which is easy to do. I recommend using this product to take off your eye make up and then washing your face with the face wash you normally use. 
Pros inexpensive long  lasting works really well
Cons oily feeling

Life Tips For Every Girl

1. Always take your makeup off before bed. I know you're tired. I know you're comfortable. But seriously, your face will thank you.

2. Wear the shoes you want. I don't care if you're seven feet tall. Strap on those six inch heel and rock them! Also, shorter people are just as entitled to wearing flats as tall people, even if that means we have to look up to talk to people. 
3. Wear what makes you comfortable. Sure that dress makes you look great, but can you even move in it? You'll look (and feel!) your best when you're comfortable and confident.
4. Don't be afraid to wear things that are a little out there. I'm not saying you should dress like Lady Gaga. Just take a leap and buy those kind of crazy shoes, or that unique patterned top! If you like it, wear it.
5. Believe in something. Whether that something is God, an ideal, whatever, you need to believe in it with all your heart. 
6. Set goals for yourself. You need to set goals for yourself to motivate you…

Summer Day

Hellooo! As you can see, my posts are pretty sporadic and don't follow any kind of schedule. I just post when I have time to write a nice post or when something fun happens! Today's post is of the latter variety.

My day started off the best way a day can start....I got to sleep in. I also had the day off! Working three jobs, these things don't happen often. When I did finally drag my lazy self out of bed, I sat outside and read for a while, as it was really nice out and my book is really good! I'm currently reading In The Shadow of Blackbirds by Cat Winters.
In the afternoon, I went into town and did a bit of shopping. I got some yarn I need for a knitting project I'm starting soon, a t-shirt, a tank top, a pair of athletic shorts, and a sports headband (pictures soon to come). When I was in town, I found a gorgeous park by the water and a lending library. It is so adorable! I'm planning a trip back there soon to leave some books in it.

Then, I went to my old h…

Summer Reading

Hello! Oh my, it's been so long since I've posted! I'm really sorry about that, I've just been crazy busy with final exams and then working every day. Thank goodness it's FINALLY summer and I'll have all  kinds of free time!
One thing you'll learn from my posts is that I'm a huge book worm. I'm actually planning on majoring in English and working at a publishing house as a book editor. In today's post, I'd like to share with you some of my favorite books.
