What I Got For Christmas + Updates

Can you believe that January is almost over??! I remember counting in the New Year like it was yesterday! With the being said, my post today might be extremely late, but I still wanted to do it.
For my Christmas break this year, I spent it all over the place. I was in New York with family for a week, then to my boyfriend's house and then finally back at my home! I wanted to catch up with everyone, but they all lived so far from one another haha!

For Christmas, I got a few gifts! I know your not suppose to pick favorites when it comes to gifts, but my favorite one was the one my boyfriend got me.

Pink Bear Claw Slippers

 I actually had no idea what my boyfriend was getting for me as a gift.. He mentioned a gift to me and I was so curious to know what it could have been. Trust me when I say I guessed so much. I constantly asked for hints and eventually I got it! He had gotten me these pink fuzzy bear slippers! They are so cute and match me perfectly! I brought these to college with me and when I wear it around, I always get the best compliments! =) I love these slippers so much! 
As for my gift to him, I chose to get him a new water bottle (since his previous 2 were broken, Christmas underwear, and a bar of his favorite chocolate !

Blue Pearled Jewlery Box

The next gift that I got was this beautiful jewelry box. This little heart shaped box is absolutely so pretty. I love the blue color and the pearls and crystals on it make it so much more stunning. I brought this little box with me to college cause I love it so much. I'm not sure what to put inside, but right now I actually have a few rings haha.

Gold Swan Necklace

This necklace was given to me by my boyfriend's mom. The necklace is of a swan on a thin gold chain. I really love this necklace as well. This is a huge coincidence, but swans are *one* of my favorite animals! They just look so elegant and majestic. I know they sometimes aren't the nicest animals, but they are so beautiful. Plus does anyone know the story of the ugly duckling... ? I think I kinda resemble that duckling who turned into a swan sometimes! 

Betsy Johnson Socks

The next item that I have here are socks. Being someone who loves running (Though not in this cold. snowy weather), I am always in need of new socks. My socks always get dirty within a few runs. I'm actually not sure why this is, but I guess when I run through grass, that happens. These new socks are so perfect for me! I will definitely put them to good use!

Lindt Lindor Chocolate

The last item that I have here is a bag of chocolate. Who doesn't love chocolate?? These are sooo good and lets say that they were all gone within a week.. oops =)

uconn snow

I'm moving into my second week of college right now and I have to say that I'm getting back into the swing of things. The first few days were a struggle. I went to class and I just didn't feel it. I didn't feel like I was back in class and I felt like I wasn't actually there. I kinda zoned out the first week, but now I am getting used to it again... I'm going to miss my sleep though haha... I don't get much sleep in college and ohh it sucks, but it's only 14 weeks. I can do it!

Some of you may have heard about this (especially if you live on the east coast), but there is a forecasted snow blizzard coming towards us.. ekkk. According to the weather reports, we are expecting anywhere between 1-2 feet of snow with strong winds. Having my college located on a hill, I am anticipating more towards the 2 feet of snow with very strong winds. The wind is always strong here... I'm pretty nervous too since the news makes it seem like it will be a huge storm! I'm kinda expecting no classes on Tuesday and maybe Wednesday...haha
I'm crossing my fingers that it won't be too big since I want to be able to go outside, but a day or two without classes seem really nice! 

How was your Christmas and New Years?
Are you expecting snow in your area?

Finally an Update + Happy New Year!

HI EVERYONE! (long time no see!)

Grand Oasis Cancun

It's 2015 and I am alive!!!!! 
I know it's been forever since my last update!!! In fact my last post was in August 2014, right before I was heading to college. I'm looking back on my old post right now and the promises I had made to keep up with blogging once I was in college and ohhh how I failed at that. I got caught up in college and just adapting to everything. It was really a different world up there. Everything was new and while I had fun, I constantly found myself drained of energy for no reason. (may have been the business and crazy sleep schedule and my insomnia....) I'm on the last 1-2 days of my winter break right now and I find myself really missing blogging. I'm going to try my best this semester on to keep up with my blogging! 

A lot has happened since my last blog post.... I'm not going to go into too much detail right now on everything, but I will give you highlights and promise to go into more details later!

cancun Vacation
A picture of my vacation in Cancun (which I will explain later) 
  •  I completely my first semester of college and ended with a great GPA as well as chosen my major for sure.. which will be elementary education!
  • I'm in a RELATIONSHIP with an amazing guy and we are almost 5 months strong! <3
  • I've learned to live with a roommate and this semester I *may* just have a huge single room...
  • I made lots of new friends in college and learned a lot more. 
  • I did a mystery room in NY (so much fun!) 
  • I went to CANCUN a few months ago. (this is huge.. first time out of the country since my birth haha)
  • Swam with a dolphin, kinda conquered my fear of water, ate a ghost pepper (random I know) and much more...
Until my next blog post (which will come I promise!), enjoy some photos from the remainder of last year and the first few weeks of 2015!

As you can tell, quite a bit has happened in the past few months! I feel like I've changed a lot in just half a year. College really changes a person!!! I'll be trying my best to get back in the blogging world over the next few months!  I may be limited to just using my phone to take photos, but to be honest, my phone takes some pretty nice pictures! Not as good as a DSLR, but still decentI'm pretty busy next semester (I got a job!!) but I'm making time to blog! 

What have you guys been up to lately? I miss checking out all your blogs!! I will be playing catch up right now!
