new in: boxing day sale

Hi everyone! Hope every had a great Christmas! My Christmas was absolutely amazing and couldn't have asked for a better relaxing weekend. I wanted to go shopping after Christmas because of all the after-Christmas sales (or Boxing Day sales as some of you call it) were going on. My mom and I made an impulse decision to go to our mall after dinner to do some looking around. I wasn't sure if I was going to find anything but Zara did me well! There's a new Zara that just opened in a mall that's about 40 minutes from my house and it's definitely bigger and has more variety of selections than the Zara that's about half the time closer.

It's been a while since I've made a post about my morning favorites, aka my daily makeup products that I've been loving. I'm not really the type to experiment a lot with makeup. If there's a routine that gets the job done, I'll stick to it! Recently, though, I've started to experiment with lipsticks, particularly matte lip products. I've been loving the nude lips and can't stop wearing it.

Well it's been an incredibly long time since I've written a blog post! I think it's been a year, maybe? But I'm back! I've been inspired to blog again and hope that I'll keep this up for the new year as well. That last time I checked in I was a freshman in college and now I just completed my fall semester of junior year! I'm coming back to the blogging community with a post that I'm sure plenty of other bloggers have done in time for the holiday season. As I've grown older, I've started to not compile a wish list like I did when I was 13 years old. There's nothing that I really want and if I want it, I can purchase it myself! However, these items are lust items that I would love to put on my wish list but, we all have to think realistic. For a student, these items are way above the affordable price limit. But I thought, why not? So, here are 5 items on my "fake" wish list.
