Basically, NYU = More opportunities, but a lot more hard work on my end if I want to succeed... and pay back my loans.
Uconn = Still must put in hard work if I want opportunities, but I'll probably be less stressed and be able to have a typical college experience.
With that being said, I think I need to reevaluate myself and find out exactly what I want from college. As of now, it's looking like Uconn is a nice balance of social/academics while NYU is heavier on the work/opportunities. I still have ~ 28 days to figure this out! I'll be visiting both colleges soon and I'll see where I stand after!
Whoa.. Now onto the fun part of my post today!! For starters, I can't believe it is April already!! I literally thought there was one more week of March, but hey, I'm not complaining because that brings me closer to Spring Break!
The first item that I picked up this month are two eyeliners from Almay. Almay has been my go to brand for eyeliner just because of it's strong staying power on my lids and the built in sharpener it has! I tend to wear no/minimum makeup on school days. When I do wear makeup though, I always do my eyes! I use either black or purple eyeliner depending on my mood haha!

|This is the cutest packaging ever!|
Inside the adorable packaging, I found the sweetest card and a bunch of hello kitty pictures! How cute?! I absolutely adore hello kitty haha! Along with the card, there was also a neatly wrapped up package which was my prize... The Urban Decay Naked Palette!! This is my first ever naked palette and probably the best eyeshadow palette I have ever owned!! I am soooo excited to have this in my hands and I can't believe it's mine!
|haha I tried to put two pictures together into one!|
The palette came along with 12 eyeshadow colors! The colors range from more of a basic/neutral color to darker and more stunning colors. I really love the variety of shades here! I feel like I could use this palette for anything from school to a night out with my friends! My favorite colors in this palette cuurently are Sin, Half Baked, Toasted, and Creep.. (haha yes I like a lot of the colors!!) The palette also came with a really high quality brush that I will use with the eyeshadows. Most of my eyeshadow brushes are on the smaller side so it's really nice to have a brush with a longer handle! I feel like it gives me much better control!
Along with the colors and the brush, I also got the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion. A primer is usually a must for me if I want my eyeshadows to stay on since my lids are so oily! I have heard so many positives review on this primer so I have high hopes for this primer! ... Wherever I am going for college, this palette will be coming with me! =)
So I kinda saved the best purchase/gift of March for last.. (well everything I got was really good!). My mom finally decided it was time to get me my first ever smartphone!! You do not understand how excited I was when I heard my mom say this! All my friends have smartphones and I did honestly feel left out.. so since I am going to college soon, my mom got this for me! It's the iphone 5c!! haha I desperately wanted it in pink, but they only offered blue and white so I chose blue.. I will be putting a pink case on instead!! =)
I have already started using my phone and I love it!! It took me a while to get used to how things worked, but I quickly caught on! This is my first apple product (I have been with android with all my electronics) and I like it a lot! The reason I chose the iphone over an android phone was because I felt that the iphone was more universal and easier to use. A lot of people have the iphone and I just felt that it would be simpler for me if I had the same phone!!
Wow, looking back on this post now, I realize how crazy last month has been for me! So much new things and so many big decisions to make! Senior definitely has been a ride and though there are times of high stress for me, I still am enjoying every minute of it!
