A Potential Husky?

Okay, so maybe the title of today's post might be a little misleading as I'm not actually even considering getting a puppy, but rather, I got my acceptance letter from Uconn and I'm actually a lot more excited than I anticipated myself to be!! (Their mascot is a husky!)


I have to say right now that picking a college has to be one of the most stressful events ever! I was pretty excited to see the letters coming in, but when it comes to actually picking one and depositing my money, it is honestly pretty scary. I know I always have the option to transfer if I don't like it there, but ... arrr... it's just difficult. I really wanted to go to college in a different state, but I know Uconn is a really good school! (and the price for in state students is unbeatable!) I think I've narrowed it down though to Pace, Uconn, and Umass Amherst. I just need to visit the other 2 schools (which I should have done.. last year I know) and make my final pick. 
I have to say, I had spent quite a bit of time trying to find reasons to hate Uconn and my main fact that I have going against it is that it is in the middle of nowhere and that when I want to live off campus or explore the area, I would have trouble doing so. However, everything else seems to be a positive and when I went to visit, I was upset about the size of the dorms, but I actually got accepted into Uconn's honor's program which means bigger dorms!!  I didn't expect to be accepted at all because all the averages for rank, grades, and test scores for entering the program are higher than mine by quite a bit actually so.. I'm thinking my essay pulled me through here? Anyways, Uconn is a top choice for me now and ohh gosh, it's going to be so hard to make my final decision.

Lord Of The Flies Essay

Speaking of school work, this is what I did over my very long 4 day break! Well.. I actually worked on it on Monday and Tuesday, but it was an essay with the book Lord of the Flies and 2 psychology experiments. This thing took so much brainpower and I am so ready for my English class to be over! I really love my class and my teacher, but the work in that class is ridiculous! I feel like it is a mix of busy work on top of essays lol!

Body Butters Kohls

Makeup Tools Kit

Jelup Cuticle Oil Review

While on my long extended break weekend, I also took to do some organizing and came across these three adorable items! I actually received the first two items from my friend a year ago for Christmas. It's a set of body butters and a makeup/tool kit. I found these body butters at the perfect time because I was about to go out and get one for my legs. Now I don't have to because I have 3 unopened ones! Yay!
The cuticle oil was won in a giveaway also about a year ago. My sister has been putting this to good use recently and she says that it really works! I just tried some of this on my nails last week and I agree that it works really well.. especially for the winter! Plus a little of this goes a long way so I'm thinking this little tube will last us all winter!

Macadamia Natural Oil No Tangle Brush Review

Another thing that I started using this weekend was this macadamia natural oil no tangle brush from Amazon. My sister who is obsessed with beauty, heard numerous reviews from beauty gurus about this hair brush. It's suppose to detangle your hair without pulling or hurting it. She found the brush on Amazon for under $10 and the brush even came with a deep repair mask and some macadamia oil. So far, the results of the brush are looking pretty good! It does detangle my hair and I find that I don't lose as much when I brush. It doesn't pull at all. The only negative I have is the way it is shaped.. it's a bit odd and chunky, but the results are really nice so the $10 is worth it for me!

influenster j'adore voxbox review

Another thing I received over my break was this adorable J'adore Voxbox!! I can't believe I was actually selected to receive this one! I saw pictures of this pink box prior to being notified that I was selected and when I heard that the box I was selected to receive was this one, I got super excited!! I mean what else is better than hearts and the color pink??!!

  7. congrats, girl! I'm happy for you. Well, I personally miss high school more :D although I enjoy my university life as well. high school was less stressful and because I was basically still a teenager, so less frustrating thing to think about :P

  9. Wow! Looks like you have a hard time choosing huh? I guess you can consult your family and friends on this. And regarding your questions:
    1. I do not know how college's life is because I went straight to a university after my high school years. I think our education system is different too.
    2. Sorry, I have not tried the hair brush.
    3. My weekend was great. As usual, I went for a ride with my bike.

    Have a nice day yeah?

  15. Aww cute pics of the hamster!

    I am totally not the norm here, but I loved high school and really didn't love university. A big reason is that I commuted, so I wasn't involved in extra curriculars like I was in HS. Most people say the exact opposite, so it's totally as good as you want it to be.

      ohh that is interested to hear actually. I want to commute, but most colleges force us to live on campus our first year so I will be on campus and I'll try to get improved so I can have more fun! I wasn't that involved in HS either but I enjoyed it!

  19. Hi Mindy, i can imagine how difficult it is in the US to pick a college because there are so many great ones. We have only a handful of colleges here, with less than half of them being brilliant. I think this makes our choices easier but opportunities less. Well done on getting in. The manicure set is so lovely and your pet is the cutest!I enjoyed reading your thoughts on my last post...Good wishes for the weekend!

    1. Hi Sam and I know how you feel! There are lots of good schools (that come with big price tags !) .
      I kinda like the idea of less choices for college because it would make the decision so much easier and I wouldn't have to be wondering if I am making the right choice!
      Thanks!! I love my little hamster!

  23. Good luck with choosing a college! I would have to say that high school will always be the best times of my life and I know I'll always miss it, but college is such an enjoyable experience! You'll really find yourself in college and be more sure of where you want your life to go.

  26. I enjoyed uni (college) much more than secondary school (high school). Whilst studying at uni in London, I met so many interesting people from all over the world. It was just a fantastic experience and has helped me to evolve into the person that I am today.

    Love the funky brush, I wonder what it's like to use it.

    Have an excellent weekend!
