Let's Spring Forward!

     If you live in the U.S., you might know this, but today is the beginning of Daylight Savings. haha, It's not really a holiday or anything, but we just move our clocks forward by an hour. I slightly dislike this since I lose an hour of my day (which usually comes from my sleep grr), but it also means spring is coming! It already feels a bit like spring in the air even though snow keeps coming for some reason which is why you see me in a sweater dress today! It might be warm, but still not warm enough for short sleeves!



It's been quite a relaxing week for me. I got to sleep in till 8:45 on Wed. + Thrus. since I am a junior and don't have to come in early for testing. Plus school was cancelled on Fri. due to snow. This week I get to sleep in for three more days. After that, it's back to waking up at 5:50! I think school should start later! haha. I can't function that early in the morning.. especially since I don't get in bed till 11 pm and it takes me forever to actually fall asleep. I don't have the best sleep habits as you can tell so I am always tired in school!  


For my outfit today, I wore a cozy blue and gray striped sweater dress. I picked this dress up at Tjmaxx a while back. I saw it on the sales rack for only 8.99!  It was pretty much a steal! I paired my sweater dress with some gray colored leggings and dark gray boots. For my accessories, I wore a black bow necklace with pearls and my gold colored ring that I recently purchased.

Notice the difference in the color of my hair when I am in the sun and when I am in the shade.. =0

I recently found this new lip balm that I am in love with right now. It's called "yes to carrots." The lip balm is 99% natural and contains carrot oil. (interesting right?) For me, the balm is quite moisturizing and last for hours before I need to reapply it. The lip balm that i got was rosy bloom and it gives my lip a slight pink tint. It's pretty good so far, but the only thing that sucks is that it's scentless. It kinda smells like wax, but besides that I am addicted!


Me wearing the lip balm and trying not to look awkward.. 
Sweater dress- Tjmaxx 
Boots- Payless
Necklace- Forever 21
Ring- Forever 21

Are you a fan of sweater dresses?
What lip balm are you guys currently using? Have you ever tried any Yes To Carrots products?

  2. Sweater dresses are great, but I feel like they usually look really bad on me lol. My favorite drugstore lip balm is Burt's Bees, but I have been really loving the Rosebud Perfume Co.'s Strawberry lip balm! It comes in a tin and I purchased it from Sephora, it smells wonderful and keeps my lips moisturized all day. I also like using it at night! ^^b

  10. I really love sweater dress especially those made of knit wears but I can't really pull it off as I have much larger hips than my upper body hahaha so it usually look quite weird on me :<

    Wow 8.99$ <3 It really IS a steal!

    What, you have to wake up at 5.50?! That's crazy!! I can't remember the last time I had to wake up so early lol! Not even during school days! Our school starts at 7 a.m. so I usually wake up at 6 or 6.10 and my poor ma had to rush me to school >_< Not proud of it but thank goodness it's over hahaha.

    Yay for spring! But having winter has its perks, you get fairer =P And your make up stays hehehe!

    Carrot lip balm sounds really interesting o.o

    1. I don't think your hips are that big. haha, my hips are pretty wide! (well my butt is which makes my hip bigger)
      It really was a steal! That is why i like tj maxx.

      School starts at 7:25 for me, but I live ~20 min from school and our bus is one of the early ones to arrive! i would love for my mom to drive me to school every morning! .. or I could drive once I get my license!
