Styling Harvard: Currently Crushing

Happy Thursday, guys!! I hope you’re all having a great week! This past week has been such a whirlwind, I’ve been lazy with my posting. To make up for it, I’m sharing 2 things that I’m #currentlycrushing!

The other week, I was running into CVS to pick up a prescription when I accidentally (read: purposefully) stumbled into the cosmetics aisle. Imagine my delight when I saw a brand new section full of NYX products! There must have been a bunch of other ladies just as excited as I was because they were sold out of so many of the products. I’m into bold lip colors lately so when this little beauty caught my eye, I scooped her right up! The color is LG136 – Dolly Pink and it is part of the Mega Shine Lip Gloss line. Not only does it have a good flavor to it, but the color lasts and lasts! And for a nice little price of around $5, you just can’t beat it. I will so be rocking this color all spring and summer long. Sidenote: I love the little bow at the top of the wand — it’s so adorable!

Okay, next on my currently crushing list is this list. My best friend sent me this link today and I think it’s such a great compilation of tips for girls. I agree with 59 of them…I just can’t get over the heebie jeebies that thrift store clothes give me. Just thinking about it while I type is making me shudder.  According to her blog, Serendipity and Creativity (love that name!), Lexi is only 20 years old but clearly wise beyond her years. Great job, Lexi!

  15. NEVER go to bed with your make up on.
  16. Get like a thousand packs of make up wipes, because they work the best.
  17. Buy your wine from a box, it’s way more cost efficient and being “wine classy” is so overrated.
  18. Carry headphones in your pocket at all times.
  19. Pick your girls over your boyfriend often, because almost always, the guys come and go and the girls are still there.

  32. Make sure you have at least one friend that likes your favorite TV shows.

  36. Never spend too much time crying over a boy.
  37. Order the dressing or sauce on the side ladies. You’d be amazed at the difference.

  40. One foundation does not fit all. Your skin is unique; so spend the time to get a foundation that doesn’t look like you just smudged your face with paint.
