A Little Life Update & My Favorite Lip Combo of the Week

Hey there!

As I’ve mentioned in my last post I have successfully managed to make it through the first week of my 4th semester at University! Yay! It’s been a stressful week and I have a feeling that this semester is going to be the hardest one yet! I’m taking a lot of courses this year and I need to write so many final essays and papers this time I’m probably gonna be sick and tired of spending so much time in front of my MacBook once summer rolls around.

Nonetheless I’m taking some really interesting courses this year. I know I’ve mentioned before what I’m studying but I don’t think I’ve ever really explained it. Now my study program is called English Language and Culture and I chose to focus on North America rather than the UK. No offence, I love the UK and have a wonderful time whenever I go there but I used to live in the US and it’s like my favorite place in the world and I really miss living there.

 However, I didn’t just want to study English or literature so I decided to study English language and culture because it’s a mixture of language classes (Syntax and Phonetics), history, politics, art, cultural studies and of course literature. This year especially I have quite a few classes that seem so interesting! Apart from even more literature and politics classes one of the courses I have to take is called American Popular Culture, in which we talk about all sorts of new phenomenons that are part of popular culture, be it movies, music, TV, comic books or even graffiti in big cities with NYC as a case study (I actually have to do a presentation on that soon). We’re also finally putting a bigger focus on Canada and after my first class of Canadian literature I totally wanna travel there now. Our professor basically gave us a 90 minute introduction to Canada as a country in general and Canada has now moved up a lot on my list of countries I still want to travel to. You guys probably don’t even care about this but I’m just really excited about some of the courses I’m taking this year, so I just wanted to share a bit more of my experience with going to University.

But let’s move on to the beauty part now. There’s a combo I’ve been loving a lot this week! I’m a fan of lip liner and one I’ve been loving this week is the Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Liner in 132 Sweet Pink. It’s basically a soft pink nude that gives you a your lips but better kind of color while adding some volume. I’ve mentioned before that I don’t really like gloss too much but I’ve been obsessing over my Urban Decay Naked Gloss in Sesso, which was included in the Naked On The Run palette I got very recently. Unfortunately I think you can only buy this gloss as part of the palette but it really makes me want to try out some of the other UD glosses. As you can probably guess I’ve paired these two together and I think they look great as the Naked Gloss is rather sheer, so it adds a nice shimmer to your lips without being over the top glittery.

  1. I like the mix of lifestyle & beauty posts :) Also your college course sounds really interesting. If I could go back back in time & start uni again I think I’d choose to study English (lit) and French!

  2. i definitely like it when you add some personal info! i never knew you study english language & culture, that sounds like a very interesting major. good luck!

    p.s i would love it if you could check out my blog sometime x

  3. Sounds like school is going to be tough but at least you’re taking classes that you’re excited about! I’m doing the same next quarter of college and I haven’t been this excited about school in a while
