My iTunes Addiction.

I admit I am addicted to iTunes. Mainly it is music, but also I tend to download a few movies to watch on my ipad. I have tense moments throughout the day where I just want to jam out to something that gets my mood to a happier place! I mean I truly feel when someone is rude to me then rather than saying what I want to say, it is better to play something like Rude from Magic! 

Do any of you use music to escape tense situations? I find I am able to instantly feel better if I listen to the right song. It seems frustrations just melt away!

We all go through times that are tough, and lately I do more so than ever. How I pick myself up is through music. Anytime I see Christine on Facebook talking about music she is buying I just can't help myself. It seems I go on sporadic marathons of iTunes. So here is a few of the songs I have been loving lately! 
What are your favs? I am always looking for some musical inspiration! Have a great weekend!

College-goers…Are you needing textbooks?

Calling all college-goers! When I was in college I found myself scouring the internet for the cheapest textbooks that would get to me the quickest. If only I had heard of CampusBookRentals before I graduated, I feel I would have saved myself tons of time and money. I have written a few posts in the past about this company and mainly it is due to their amazing programs and affiliation with Operation Smile. So if you are in the market for textbooks listen up!
There are tons of perks such as:
  • Saving 40-90% off Bookstore prices
  • free shipping both ways
  • flexible renting periods
  • Can highlight in textbooks
  • Donations are made with each textbook rented and many more!
  • Their site is easy to navigate!
There are tons more perks that you can find by heading over to their website. With all of these perks the one that stands out to me the most is their donations to Operation Smile. Supporting this cause can cause a big change, which you can see in the image below. If you are interested in learning more about Operation Smile just click here!

One program that I think is super amazing is RentBack. RentBack is a new initiative that allows students to rent out the textbooks they own to other students. This actually get you 2-4xs the money that you would through selling it back at the end of the semester. As someone who has paid over $300 for a book before and only received $25 in buyback, I find this to be a great way to make your money back on expensive books. This is awesome ….right?

Want to know more about RentBack, then watch this!

If you are not familiar with this initiative then check it out here! Just the thought of a company giving back make me extremely happy, which is why I am so excited to spread the news about CampusBookRentals!

Lorac Pro 2 {Review}

I honestly forgot that I had not talked about the Lorac Pro 2 palette, but thinking about how my Lorac Mega Pro palette that just came in got me thinking about the Lorac Pro 2 palette. I personally am super excited to compare the Mega Pro palette to the Pro 1 & Pro 2 palettes. I have a kind of obsession with Lorac shadows and I admit that I own quite a bit of their eye shadow palettes. 
I feel that you get a bargain for the price due to how amazing the shadows are in these palettes. I will be reviewing the Mega Pro palette soon, although I hear it is out of stock. Since it is only October I seriously hope that Lorac at least restocks it again soon. Back to the Lorac pro 2 palette. Let's look at some swatches of the Lorac Pro 2 palette!

I love this palette, and if you like cool tones then you will as well. I hear many people comparing the first with this one and really there are obvious differences. The 2nd pro palette is more cool toned, where the 1st is more warm toned. I did pick this up months ago when it was released, but it has just taken me this long to talk about it. I personally like fully testing out products before reviewing them. I also feel that the shadows are a bit better quality, which to be honest is beyond amazing. Lorac continuously sets higher standards for eye shadows.
If you have not picked up this product then I highly suggest that you do. There are unlimited looks that can be created from this palette! Which is your favorite Lorac palette?
