My Recent Hits & Misses


Hello loves,
            I’m back at college! I finally got unpacked and (attempted) to fit everything back to where it belongs! I am glad to be back, but I am a bit nervous to start classes tomorrow. I need to get back into the routine of waking up early and attending classes, but I’m sure that will happen quickly! I just wanted to update you with some of my hits & misses for the past week!
            My ABSOLUTE favorite for the month of January is not related to fashion or beauty at all. Downton Abbey has been my biggest addiction. I. Can’t. Stop. Watching. It. I bought the first season on Black Friday and figured I would start watching it over break. I watched the first season and got hooked. The storyline is perfect, their clothing is superb, and the characters (ummm Tom Branson) are quite attractive. I am on the second episode of the fourth season and want to catch up before the newest episode tonight! I’ll probably have to catch up on that episode as well because of the Grammys…
            I also got a new phone case that I am so excited about. It’s a simple pink bumper case with a clear back. It’s a random new purchase that I got on Amazon and I love it.
Sorry about the terrible picture--it's from my desk at college!
            I recently posted that I purchased the Revlon Photo Ready Perfecting Primer, and it was, sadly, one of my misses. I have naturally oily skin and a bit larger pores, so if that is not something that you have to deal with, then it may work just fine. The product felt smooth going on and I do feel like it had a decent base for my makeup. It didn’t, however, keep my makeup in place for very long. Again, if you don’t have as oily of a face as me, it may work better for you!
            I’m sorry—this isn’t my greatest post. I really wanted to do something great, but I promise I’ll be posting again soon. And, again, I recommend watching Downton Abbey. So. Good. J I’ll let you know how this first week goes and see how everything else works out. I hope to hear from you all again soon!

Much love,
Maggie D. xx

Update: I wrote this a few days ago and I had my first day of classes today! AAHH. It's so crazy getting back into the routine of school again. I am a bit overwhelmed, but my professors seem great so far, so I am excited to meet the rest of my professors tomorrow & see how it goes! Have you headed back to school? How's it going for you? Please leave your comments below. I am always curious to see what people are studying. :)
