As the year is slowly coming to a close, a door for new opportunities, as well as new mistakes opens. In order to move forward, you must look back. There are many things that I have learned throughout the past year that have turned me into who I am now. I wish I could say I learned these the easy way but I would be lying.

1. Bad things happen to good people: I have experienced this quite a few times in the past year. I have been stripped from the things I love because there were misunderstandings, even though I always have the best intentions at heart. At first, the only things I could think of in these times of troubles are "why me?" and "this can't be happening" but it did and after some time I came to the realization that these things happen and there's nothing I can do about it. Throughout this past year, I have learned to accept all that has (and will) happen to me with an open mind because no one can control what the outcome will be. With that being said, to the people who have had something bad happen to them even though their hearts are pure, just remember you're not the only one. You will be able to get through it in a positive way.

Now that finals are over, it's finally time to focus on the more important things...
The most wonderful time of the year has arrived and I'm able to spend it in shorts and a tank top (thanks  to Texas weather), but I'm definitely grateful for it. Ending the semester on a fantastic note, makes the stress of school worth it, especially now that I can relax and spend all my time thinking of the ones I love.

Many people won't recognize the name Zoella, but it's one to be reckoned with. Zoe Sugg, the creator of "Zoella", is a fashion and beauty blogger/Youtube sensation. Even though you may not know who she is at the top of your head, you have definitely heard of her. She's the contagiously happy voice you hear in your daughters room at 11 o'clock at night when she should be sleeping. She's the reason why girls are now mentioning stores like Asos and Topshop and want to buy every shade of lipstick from MAC. And she is most definitely the reason why every girl wants to have a British accent.
It explains so much now, right?!

A break from reality is what most of us need from time to time and that's exactly what I got. A week off from classes (fully knowing I would be slammed with homework once I got back), visiting with old friends, and two trips with my loved ones is what my "mini vacation" consisted of. And let me tell you, that's exactly what I needed.

Coming back to a dearly missed hometown is probably the best refresher any college girl needs after months of no money, fast food, and dirty clothes. With a little love and a lot of home cooked meals, the sorrows and stress of school simply seem to vanish.

As I watch my worries pass through my rear view mirror, I head towards the first stop of my trip: Downtown San Antonio.

As Gossip Girl once said,
"Thanksgiving began when Pilgrims and Indians
came together to share the bountiful harvest. On the Upper
East side, that tradition is upheld with a bountiful harvest
of secrets, lies, and scandals."

Unfortunately, we're not all filthy rich and unbelievably attractive, but you can never go wrong with a Gossip Girl quote.

In reality, Thanksgiving is a time where family and friends can come together in remembrance of all that they're thankful for. It's a time to truly feel the undeniable love and support of those who surround you. And it's most definitely a time to stuff your face with the best food imaginable.

Okay, if you know anything about me, you'd know that makeup
is my guilty pleasure. Actually, I can't even consider it that because I don't 
feel guilty at all once I buy it. You could say...

My most recent trip to the mall was actually one intended for Grimaldi's pizza only. Well, of course, little ole me had to go to Ulta (just to look) and came out with this adorable piece from Too Faced's new Christmas Collection. Of course the pink glitter packaging caught my eye!

Making a blog can be extremely nerve wrecking. Not knowing what to say exactly
and wondering who will read it (if anybody), seems to always pop up in the back of your mind and that's terrifying. 
The constant anxiety of criticism fills your body,
paralyzing you. What if your favorite blogger comes across your post
and they can't even read another word due to their disgust? What if you're not even
a good blogger? What if... what if... what if?
