Spring weather has stopped by for a visit here in Maryland. Yesterday, it was a 60 degrees, a warm welcome after a few weeks of it being low 30’s, windy, and rainy. There were so many people out walking, playing baseball, and riding bikes in town during my run (7 miles). Afterwards, I spent a good part of the afternoon outside studying and soaking up some rays on the terrace on campus.
However, it seems that the rest of my peers weren’t nearly as enthused by the springtime weather because there wasn’t a soul outside on campus. Dang college kids, don’t they know about vitamin D deficiency?
This weekend was a busy one with school, friends, and vlogging. On Thursday night, I went to the midnight premiere of the new Oz movie. It was alright but sort of a letdown. I wouldn’t recommend it, to be honest. Luckily, my college sells discount movie tickets, so I only paid $5 for my ticket and the bus there (gotta love those college discounts).
On Saturday night, my roommate, Becky and I hit up the free Saturday movie on campus. My college has some deal where they get recently out of theater movies, and then they have free showings on the weekends. This week’s movie: Les Misérables.
It was my third time seeing it. Don’t judge me. I’m obsessed. I’ve been belting out I Dreamed a Dream and One Day More in my car since December.
I also picked up the new issue of Glamour. Kate Hudson is on the cover, and jeez, it’s a pretty racy photo!
I was flipping through, and I am so excited to see that jean jackets are coming back into fashion! I have two jean jackets from the past that I am so ready to break out for springtime. Personally, I have always thought they are great staple pieces because they can easily break up a really busy print, make a more formal look instantly casual, or cool down a bright color.
The past few days, I’ve been wearing my NYC Up To 8 Hour City Lip Gloss in Midnight Rose ($3.27 at Walmart). I forgot I even had it until I organized all my makeup the other day.
Up to this point, I had forgotten how awesome lip gloss can be. It’s just the right amount of shine. It’s no commitment, not too bold, just go with the flow.
What I love about this NYC gloss is the fact that it doesn’t dry out my lips. Kokrum butter is a key ingredient, which actually helps moisturize and that is always a plus in my book. It is also pretty long-lasting for a lip gloss. I wouldn’t say that it lasts anywhere near eight hours like it claims to, but it does last a few hours, which is better then a lot of lip glosses out there.
It‘s very easy to apply, but it does have a bit of a sticky texture once it’s on, but it doesn’t bother me much. If anything, you can tell when you need to reapply based on how it feels on your lips.
Alright guys, I’ve got lots of work to do. Spring break starts on Friday, so I am just trying to get through all my school work before I can head home and take a much needed break!
How is the weather where you’re at? Do you go to the movies often? Do you wear lip gloss? Any brands you would recommend?
