Life Update: First Semester of College!

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog. Today is going to be a more personal post so I hope you are along for the ride! Grab a snack because I don’t know how long it will be. We will return to our regularly scheduled beauty blog programming in a couple of days.

I go to a college in California, at my dream school! I am majoring in Music industry studies, so I’m learning about the music business. I’m so excited to graduate and be an artist manager, or a social media marketing person for an artist, I’m not sure what the job title is.

Anyway, I moved into my dorm in mid-August of this year, my roommate is lovely and she and I are good friends. I’m happy to report that I had no roommate horror stories, which is great because we will be rooming for the next semester as well.

My dorm was so fun to decorate! it is all cute and Pinterest-y. I enjoyed creating my own space, all the wall art is from Marshalls and I love it.

I also joined the cross country team! I love all the girls on the team and I had a great time getting to know them. I was the only freshman but I had so much fun! I wish I could show you my uniform but it has my school name on it and I’d like to keep that private.

We run 6k races and we practice every weekday morning at 6 am, which I struggled with a little, not gonna lie. We did weights on Monday and Wednesday, and then a pool workout on Thursday. I am incredibly in shape right now and I love it!

My classes are not super difficult, they are based a lot on meeting industry people, so I’ve been able to manage my classwork with sports. I’m chasing down a social media marketing internship as well, so fingers crossed!

I am also in a rock band, and frequently write songs with a couple of composing friends so that is awesome! I enjoy being creative in my free time, I’ve been really busy with new projects so it has been preventing me from blogging!

I was able to make friends, I have several good guy friends, and a few good girl friends! Of course I still miss my high school orchestra cross country friends, Christine and I face time every couple of weeks if we can. I wasn’t homesick, but I did feel a little lonely during the semester so that was the only part that wasn’t the best, I just missed being around familiar people. Other than that I really enjoyed my college experience and I’m excited to go back for next semester!

Makeup

Max Studio Liquid Lipstick

Hello my lovlies! If you guys have been keeping up with our blog, you know that Hailey and i love us some Marshalls makeup. Going to Marhsalls was one of my favorite things to do with Haily becuase her and i would pick apart the makeup/beauty section till there was nothing left! Anything with Hailey is a joy, its also just fun to talk about our lovely followers, and you better believe her and i talk about you all non-stop!

Today i will be reviewing Max Studio’s liquid lipstick. I found this lipstick at Marshalls while Hailey was helping me find shoes for graduation. Its funny because i told myself i was only there to get shoes and help Hailey pick out makeup or shoes if she needed it. Naturally i have no self control and bought this lipstick…want to know my reasoning? “Christine, you need this lipstick because you dont have lipsticks.” If you have seen any of our post, a majority of mine are lipsticks. I have a huge addiction to lipsticks its kinda scary. But hey, more content for our blogs right?

Max Studio Liquid Lipstick:

Description:

  • redish pink shade
  • plastic tube
  • cushioned applicator
  • long gold cap to hold

Pros:

  • smooth application

Life Update – High School Graduation, College, Our Pets etc.

Hello our loves! This is a super chatty post, so grab your popcorn ‘cuz this will be a dense one!

Okay, lets start off with our high school graduation!

We will be graduating high school in two weeks. For the both of us, it hasn’t really set in that our high school career will be at an end. We met our freshman year, so this will be bitter sweet. The two of us have already gotten our caps and gowns, as well as our graduation dresses. When we got our caps and gowns, we thought finally it would sink in that we’re graduating, but it hasn’t. We both feel so ready to be out, yet at the same time we aren’t ready to leave.

Both of us are going to college next fall, but it was tough to make the decision of which schools we wanted to attend out of all that we had applied to!

Hailey: I was stuck between a school in Boston and one in California for the longest time. The college in Boston was the best in the world for what I was studying, but I didn’t like the people or campus as much as the California, and it was hard to let that opportunity of such a good program go even if I knew it wasn’t a good fit for me. It made me so stressed, but I didn’t realize until I had picked the California how much it had been affecting me. That was one of the reasons why Christine took over so much in April, I just was not able to blog from the nerves of picking a school.

Christine: Choosing the college that i am attending to caused me a lot of stress too. In one hand I had my family, who were very set upon me going to the school of their choice, and in the other I had Continue reading “Life Update – High School Graduation, College, Our Pets etc.”
