 Todays outfit post has a few new faces, Monica one of my best friends and my puppy, Bentley. The other day, I was thinking about what I should post next and I remembered I haven't done an OOTD in a while so here ya go.

On top I'm wearing my adorable Geek t-shirt in an dark green color from Topshop. I recently ventured out to Chicago with a friend and we got to visit the Topshop there, when I saw this t-shirt I knew I had to buy it. It was super cute and comfy. Plus you can also dress it up with jewelry. I made a few other purchases from Topshop but I returning those:( because they don't fit like I thought they would. For bottoms, I'm wearing my zipper leggings from Express. I've had these leggings for longer than two years and they are still in tip top condition. My shoes however are starting to have it, I've had these boots for a few years as well. These are one of my favorite and most worn shoes I own. I hope I can keep them for a bit longer, the stud detailing is the best. Anyways, In one the pictures I'm wearing a jeweled necklace from American Eagle, I thought I'd try dressing it up a little bit.

For makeup and hair I'm just wearing my everyday routine. And yes, my everyday routine includes red lip stick. I kinda have an obsession with it and don't mind rocking it at school everyday. My hair is just curled with a wand as usually.

Thanks for reading today, I should be having more interesting blog posts soon! <3

Love languages

What are love languages you ask? Love language is how you communicate and accept love. There are five languages...
  • Words of Affirmation
  • Acts of Service
  • Quality Time
  • Gifts
  • Physical Touch
Each one of these languages are presented differently. Words of Affirmation is where kind words need to be spoken to communicate love with the individual. In this language words speak louder than actions. This is the opposite of Acts of Service, which is where actions and services done for your loved one show your love. People who speak this language will show their love through serving. Next is Quality Time which is exactly how it sounds, spending special one on one time with this person will express your love for them. This means your undivided attention with no distractions. Gifts is another love language and it's pretty simple. Love is expressed through gifts, this person is often looking for the effort and thoughtfulness behind the gift. The last language is Physical Touch. People who speak this language are often primary touchy. They show their love through hugs, kisses, and even pats on the back. 

I found I speak primary, Quality Time, Physical Touch, and Gifts. I find spending time with people is where I bond the most. I also really like the feeling of someone wanting to spend time with me, it shows their love and compassion. I think Physical Touch is important as well, I show love through hugs most of time, depending how close I am with a person. The last language I find myself speaking is gifts. I really enjoy trying to think of creative ideas to get my friends as gifts. I also find it extremely loving when friends or family members get me gifts randomly, it makes me feel like they were thinking about me.

If you still don't know what your love language is check out this quiz, http://www.5lovelanguages.com/profile/ and it should give you a pretty accurate description of what your language is. I thought love languages was a pretty cute idea for Valentines day. Even if you don't have that "special" someone don't worry. You can spend this holiday with other loved ones and have an even better time:)

I would love to hear your Valentines plans! and what love language you speak! Be sure to comment down below:)

25 Facts about Me!

Recently I've been really into this blog... http://www.zoella.co.uk :) It has a lot of cute and informative posts on some of my favorite things, fashion, beauty, etc. A few days ago Zoe posted a blogpost on "25 Facts about Me". I thought it would be a cute and quirky blog post so I decided to do the same. Everyone should definitely go check out her blog and Youtube channel, it's addicting :)

25 Facts about Me

 1. I wanna make a difference in the world. I don't know how I plan to do that but I hope I can. I always wanted to be on the TV show Extreme Home Makeover and help build a house for the families in need.

 2. I'm a tab bit obsessed with Two Door Cinema Club. Their music is fabulous.

 3. I can not save money. I always seem to be spending it on food.

 4. In the winter time I spend most of my time curled up next to the heater because I can't handle the cold. It is my worst enemy.

 5. I'm a theater kid, I love the feeling of being on stage. Preforming is always a joy.

 6. I have colored contacts that enhance my eyeballs! Yes, my eyes are naturally green.

 7. Summer is definitely my favorite season.

 8. I used to love the show Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I was always Donatello, aka the purple mask turtle.

10. I would LOVE to work at Teen Vogue, one day.

11.  I have a love for sea animals and for about half my life I considered becoming a marine biologist. That was until I learned I suck at Science.

12. Children are so darling. I can not wait till I have one or two of my own. (When I'm like 30.)

13. I have always had the urge to learn to surf. One year when I went to Florida, I actually took surfing lessons. Let's just say I wasn't the best... I hope one day I'll be able to go surfing no problem.

14. Dolphins and penguins are probably the best animals known to man-kind. I rode a dolphin once.

15. When I don't know song lyrics, I make up my own... It gets pretty rough.

16. One of my all time favorite movies is Spirited Away... Yes it is amine. Yes it is a kid's movie. It is still wonderful and I would recommend it to anyone.

17. I hate gum. It is chewy, sticky, and really digests me.

18. My friends and I are addicted to concerts, there was a year when I went to at least 10. Most of them however were the same bands. The Downtown Fiction, The Summer Set, etc.

19. I'm kinda shy if I really don't know someone, especially if I'm with a group of people.

20. I have senioritis and I'm only a junior. Going to school is seriously a pain to me.

21. I have some of the most vivid dreams, I can still remember one in full detail from when I was 7.

22. I have an old man crush on Robert Downey Jr. Not only his good looks, but his intelligence is extremely attractive.

23. Photography is amazing. I love my camera and enjoy taking photos and videos. Even though most people hate it, I find editing rather fun and get really excited when I learn new tips and tricks.

24. I have always been horrible at spelling... I rely heavily on autocorrect.

25. When I was younger I played every sport possible. (Not all at the same time, lol) Now I don't play a single sport. I was never aggressive enough. I do, do yoga, however, I don't think that counts.

Things I've been loving... My January Favorites

Red lipstick... well sorta. I've been obsessed with my Revlon lip butter in Red Velvet. It is more of an oxblood color than a full on red. I find it perfect for the winter time and it doesn't make me look extremely pale, which is a plus. Another red I have fell in LOVE with recently, is Satin by Mac. I've found that Mac lipsticks are my personal favorites. They have a variety of red colors, Satin, however,  compliments my skin tone the best.

High-waisted shorts with tights... Sounds a little crazy for winter time, but recently I was in Forever 21 and I bought two pairs of the cutest high-waisted shorts. They are on the fancier side but look really nice with a pair of sheer black tights and lace up wedges. I think this trend can be casually as well, wearing a sweater with high-waisted denim shorts and combat boots. I think shorts can give an outfit a chic and trendy look.

Ombre hair... As you all know, well I think from my photos you can tell, I ombred my hair! The first time I got it done it was a little too much blonde for me, so I got it a bit darker and made the blonde a little subtler. (is subtler even a word? It looks rather funny.) Anyways I'm really enjoying my new locks and I think they will be perfect for the spring and summer. I feel like it makes my hair have more texture and a boho vibe.

Skulls... This is surprising, NOT! I feel like anything with skulls is my new love. Recently I just bought a few skull items, a circle scarf off Etsy. It kind of reminds me of the Alexander McQueen skull scarf, but it didn't cost nearly that much. Another purchase is this adorable blue skull bracelet from Claires. Normally, I rarely shop at Claires, I find most of their items are cheap or childish, but I was pleasantly surprised when I went in the store the other day and found this lovely bracelet for only 6$. I was also rather heavy and seemed like an expensive material. Something I've had my eyes on for a while are these gorgeous black leggings with skulls on the knees, I think they are effortfully adorable and would spice up an outfit. Unfortunately I'm low on funds at the moment, so I'm going to have to save up for those.

These 4 things, I found myself loving for all of January. I have a feeling that love will continue throughout the next few months. I'd love to hear what your January favorites were, be sure to comment below!
