Today I am linking up with A Beautiful Exchange and The Albrechts Blog for ‘The Girl Between The Lines’ Link-up! I am excited to share more about myself with all of you through this link-up!
I hope you enjoy reading this post and I hope that you link up too!
I like that I am a great baker.
It’s a great feeling to know that you can make food/desserts that people absolutely love and can’t get enough of!
I like that I have a big heart.
It doesn’t matter if it’s for a person or an animal. I have one of the biggest hearts a person can have. It can result in me being emotional sometimes, but I wouldn’t give it up for a second!
I like that I can eat whatever I want and not gain an ounce.
I am not saying this to make others jealous, but seriously….I eat so much junk that I should probably weigh like 800 pounds. I don’t think I could live with out chips or baked goods. I went through a huge bag of chips in less than an hour! I’m horrible!
Today I am linking up with Life With A Side Of Coffee and Southern Beauty Guide for the Christmas is in the Air Link-Up! I put together a quick Holiday Gift Guide for the Beauty Lover in your life! These are some products that are trending and/or tried and true! Take a look and hopefully this gives you some good ideas for this holiday season!

What is in your gift guide this year?!
This definitely does not have anything to do with the holidays or christmas, but I really wanted to write a post about it! After waiting what felt like ever, I finally purchased my Alex 9 Drawers from IKEA after my trip to Boston (post coming soon!) The bf and I put it together this past weekend and I was able to start filling it up and actually organizing my make-up/beauty products. I’ve watched countless youtube videos of make-up collection videos to try and find some ideas for storage organization within the drawers and I haven’t found anything that I like! I still need to check out the container store and see what they have, but I don’t know when I will be able to get to one! I am currently using old birchbox boxes and glossybox boxes in the drawers for separators, but am looking to find something else!
Do you have these drawers? What do you use for your make-up storage/organization?
Even though I am doing Blogmas, I still wanted to stick with doing my Manicure Mondays! SO, for the four Monday’s before Christmas I will be doing holiday themed nails!
I am SUPER excited to try out new nail looks and show them to you guys!
*Sneak Peek Alert*
I received two gorgeous nail colors in my recent Julep box (post coming about this soon) and thought they were perfect together for holiday nails! Cara is the red polish and Andrea is the gold polish.
I love that the red is a like a candy apple red, but it almost has slight berry color to it. Julep describes this polish as ‘cranberry frost’. That is probably the most perfect description! The color payoff for the polish was great! I only used 1 coat and had an amazing color! Andrea is described as a brilliant full-coverage bronze glitter. I definitely agree that it is full coverage! I had to use two coats to get a good color but I was very surprised I didn’t have to do more. I don’t really agree that it is bronze though. It looks gold to me!
But to the point…gold and red are a perfect pairing!
Have a great week lovelies!
I seriously can’t believe it’s already DECEMBER! It’s crazy! This year is flying by SO fast and Christmas is almost here!
As a little count down to Christmas I have decided to challenge myself and do ‘Blogmas’! You may have heard of ‘Vlogmas’ where people vlog everyday in december until Christmas, well I am going to blog every day until Christmas! If anyone wants to join in and challenge themselves with ‘Blogmas’ definitely do it and let me know so I can read your posts!
I am excited to do this challenge and hope you enjoy reading my posts!

As I write this on my iPhone, the boyfriend and I are driving to Minneapolis to catch a flight to Boston! We are heading there to rep our school at the University of North Dakota vs. Boston University hockey series this weekend! We can’t wait! It’s going to be SO much fun! You’ve gotta LOVE hockey!
I know I didn’t post my manicure on Monday but it was for a good reason! I wanted to paint my nails school colors for this weekend! I was going to paint them last night but ran out of time so I ended up painting my nails a little bit ago in the car! I thought it would be a disaster but I actually did pretty good! I accidentally forgot my nail polish remover pen at so don’t judge!
Our official school colors are green and pink, but our athletics colors are green black, and white. I chose to paint them green and a really dark gray! The green color is called ‘In the limelight’ by SinfulShine with Gel Tech and the dark gray is ‘Status Update’ by color club! For both colors I only used one coat and the color looks great!
I can’t wait to tell you all about our trip later! If you have any suggestions on what to do in Boston, PLEASE let me know! We will be there for 4 days and have never been there! Have a fabulous weekend and don’t forget to enter my December Ad Space Giveaway!
I have developed a recent obsession with the TV series Castle. I have seen a few episodes a long time ago, but have recently watched an episode. I now have DVR. What does that mean? I am hooked, lined, and have sank. I have it set to record Castle anytime it is playing (not including duplicates) and I now have like 20 episodes to watch from the last 3 days. Seriously, I am a.d.d.i.c.t.e.d.!
Have you seen Castle? What TV series are you addicted to?
I am excited to announce that I will now be doing monthly ad space giveaways! There will be seven spots total to be given away: four Love You ads, two Love You More ads, and one Love You Most ads!
I am VERY excited to be able to provide this opportunity for other bloggers! I love being able to support others in the blogging community. I am looking forward to getting to know all of you and working with you in the future!
Good Luck and Have Fun!
