Leaders Cosmetics Review

January 26, 2015

Life lessons on imperfection and a review on face masks from Leaders Cosmetics.
The hard part about college and often life is that you have to say goodbye to those you love most. However there is almost always an upside to goodbyes. For me the upside is traveling, and seeing the incredible places the world has to offer with the ones whom I love most.
No one mentally prepares you for saying goodbye to your best friends before you leave for college.  If there is a book I could recommend I certainly would, but I just read the Dorm Room Diet by Daphne Oz...Truth be told it's pretty hard to say goodbyes to people who make your life brighter and bolder (Which I'm sure many of you know too well, I certainly do). Luckily I am a firm believer in the saying, "Absence makes the heart grow fonder" (Cliche, but definitely true). I spent the past few days in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania specifically at the University of Pittsburgh with one of my best pals Stephanie. Seeing Stephanie's integration and college life in this fascinating and diverse town has been such a blessing. Although her Christmas break was short, I got to start my 2015 with a new location and one of the best people I truly know.

Washington/ Steph & I @ Mt. Washington/ Nicky's Thai Kitchen/ My First Pad Thai!/ Schenley Park Bridge/ Phipps Conservatory/ Steph & I @ Phipps

We did so much in Pittsburgh. Ventured out into new places, saw incredible art museums, ate at great restaurants, screamed at each other while playing Mario Kart 8, and endured the brutal Pittsburgh weather together. My photo diary skills are still getting there, how did I do? Fortunately I was introduced to the beautiful Sanjana Dayananda who took some insanely stellar photos of me at the Carnegie Museum of Art & Natural History in some of my favourite spots. Pittsburgh was such a treat I cannot wait to visit again!

I'm taking strides into 2015 with a big, grateful, open heart. 2014 was too good to me. Although I wish I had pushed myself to write more blog posts, take more Instax photos, and get more cups of coffee with the people I love most- I truly am content. 2014 was a great year, and towards the end it became pretty busy.

Finals week was crazy and I had a short amount of time to deliver Christmas presents and as soon as I knew it I was on my way to D.C. to visit Rick (my dad) with my brother. We spent four days in Herndon, Virginia/ D.C. and spent a lot of time shopping, dining out, and meeting Rick's friends. I've realized that I'm not very good at the whole "Photo Diary" thing, so I apologize for the lack of photos. Luckily I am currently in Pittsburgh so I'll try to improve! I'm also back on the underrated barista grind a couple days a week alongside that. You can find me in Lacoste polos muttering curse words and hiding behind an espresso machine.
 
My parents spoiled me rotten for Christmas. Amongst many lovely things I got a Michael Kors canvas bag (I gave in, ok? I need a big purse!), gnarly Chelsea boots, and we switched cell phone carriers so I got the iPhone 6 which has killer battery life I might add!


Anyways hope y'all had a lovely holidays and had some time to relax with your family and eat lots of yummy sweets! I have some exciting stuff to share with JMC in 2015 ;) ! Cheers!
