The new kid on the block.

Howdy. How is everyone doing?

I've been super busy with work and running around trying to hang out with friends and generally trying to make everyone happy. Am I burnt out? No. But I think my flame is flickering. Hospitality is a tough tough job.

So of course I needed to buy a present for myself. Okay, well, no, I actually just needed to use the apple gift card my friend gave me (but no one forced me, if ya catch my drift).

Welcome my new little wonder, the ipod nano!

I originally thought of getting something bigger, but I run and workout a lot and this has the nike+ fitness app already installed so I thought, why not? Plus, it's so damn cute. I love it.

Speaking of new things, a few other items I've indulged in in the past month or so . . .

I bought these on Black Friday but of course, cosmetics don't go on sale so I paid full price. These are my staples though and I was running out so I figured why not. Let me just say that these are some of the best cosmetics I've ever bought and definitely worth the extra $10 or so. Lasts pretty much all day and even survives tears and sweat! Amazing.

I bought these two to add to some homemade sugar scrubs I've been working on, but I seriously just apply them straight to my skin and hair sometimes. The coconut oil especially leaves you smelling tropical and moisturized. The lavender oil is also AMAZING for massaging tired skin after a soak in the bath. Both from Trader Joes!

Last but not least, a wallet from Forever21! Quite the cutie and about $10 so it was definitely an impulse buy. It fits all my cards and money though in separate compartments and I love the size so I say it was worth it. Plus the vivid red and hearts make me happy just looking at it!

Have you bought anything lately that you just have to tell everyone else about?

I will try my hardest to update more often. See you soon!
