Today was a game changer, everyone. After years of lusting over attending Baylor University and a long application process, I was accepted into the beautiful school today! Baylor holds a special place in my heart as my dad went there and we have many friends and family who live around the area. Baylor has everything I want in a school from the Journalism and Fashion departments to an amazing sports program (Big 12 champions in football, men and women's basketball, and equestrian), from the breathtaking campus to the decades-old traditions, Baylor is the perfect place for me. I'm still in shock that I was accepted and the news hasn't really sunk in yet. However, I'm extremely excited and overjoyed and I can't wait to be in Waco!

There are many fashion ideals that I will abide by, including mixing prints, voluminous and fitted pieces, and all denim looks. However, I usually (if not always) stay away from a couple of styles or pieces such as: wearing brown anything and wearing hats. Brown is probably my least favorite color of all time and although it looks nice on others, it tends to look trashy and granny-ish on me. I've always been a must-have-perfect-hair-girl and so hats have always been out of my fashion vocabulary. Recently, I've seen many different women wearing wool or felt hats during the cooler fall months and have found them to be gorgeous when paired with windswept hair and a lightweight coat. I've been on the hunt for a perfect hat for autumn and have found it in these four styles. My favorite out of the four has to be the heather gray rag & bone one because of its chic and edgy shape that will last me for years to come!

If there's one beauty product that really gets me going, it's a good eyebrow product (or a foundation...or concealer...or bronzer...or lipstick...etc). Whether it's a powder, waxy color, brow mascara, or pencil, I love an eyebrow product that can take me from 90's Gwen Stefani (go ahead and see for yourself) to an almost-there Cara Delevigne. I'm extremely dedicated to my Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Dark Brunette, but there's another product in the ring that already has me wrapped around it's wand.
I've spoken about this product in a few videos already, but I haven't fully discussed its sheer glory here on the 'ole blog. The Maybelline Brow Drama in Deep Brown is a killer bargain for what you get. Long description short, it's a sculpting brow mascara with tinted fibers in it that coat the brow hairs and make them appear fuller. Basically what I do on a daily basis is fill my hairs in with the Hourglass Pencil and then brush the Maybelline spoolie through the brows, which coats them with tint and also sets them in place so they won't budge all day. If you've been wanting to try out the Benefit Gimme Brow for easy, no-makeup-makeup days but aren't willing to fork over the $22, then I would highly recommend giving this under-a-tenner brow product a go!
