I recently received Dr. Scholl's For Her Ball of Foot Cushions from Dr. Scholl'sthrough Influenster's Spring VoxBox.
These were so comfortable! I have terrible feet, mainly because I tend to wear flats all of the time, so wearing any lifted shoes really hurt my feet. These cushions helped to protect the balls of my feet from the unusual angle of my heels, and I even used them in a pair of my flats where the soles were wearing thin. These cushions were great, and the kept my feet from pain!

I recently received Sally Hansen Salon Effects from Salle Hansenthrough Influenster's Spring VoxBox. I received the Frock Star color.
I loved the sparkles on these strips! I had a hard time putting these on, and felt that they were harder to put on than the instructions tell you. I was also disappointed that the started to chip the same night I put them on. I understand they're going to chip, but for a product that's known for not chipping, I was disappointed about that. I did love that I didn't have to wait for them to dry, and there is a huge range of colors and patterns! Definitely worth a try for some quick color.

I recently received Bath & Body Works Fine Fragrance Mist from Bath & Body Worksthrough Influenster's Spring VoxBox. I received the Japanese Cherry Blossom scent.
I love cherry blossoms! It is probably my favorite scent for anything. I'm currently using cherry blossom shampoo and conditioner, and now this body spray. I loved how light the scent was, but it wasn't too light that it was un-noticable. It surprisingly came in a rather large bottle, so this will be lasting me for awhile. I am very pleased with this spray, and won't be using any others for some time to come.

I recently received the Sheer Cover Duo Concealer from Sheer Cover through Influenster's Spring VoxBox. I received the light/medium shade.
I liked how easy this was to blend! I used a simple make-up sponge, and the concealer started out as a light cream and blends on as a sort of light powder. I did blend the two colors, and it's very easy to blend a variety of shades with the two different colors. The one thing I wish was better was having a lighter option, as I'm very pale and even these shades were too dark for my skin. However, this concealer is a hit! I love it.

For those who don't know, I am also a book blogger. This past week the book blogging community was shocked to learn that The Story Siren, who was my favorite blogger and was one of the more successful book bloggers, had plagiarized two blogs with multiple posts. Needless to say, I was heartbroken. I respected her, and now it's hard to know what content is actually hers and what isn't.
The reason I'm writing this post is to address the issue of plagiarism. Many people think that simply copy-pasting content is considered plagiarism, but in reality it is a lot more. If you read someone else's content or ideas, and only change small parts to make it your own, that is also plagiarism. If you ask for permission and give them credit, that is one thing. But when you take it and even tweak it slightly, without giving them credit, that's when you become a plagiarist.
I know this post is random, and not much like my usual posts, and I apologize for that. I'm hoping to get back into regular posts soon.
Yeah... so I haven't posted on here in over a month. But here we go.
This week was insane. It started out okay, and then from about 9PM Monday night to about 10PM Wednesday night it became one of the worst 48 hour time frames of my life. I cried way more than I have in awhile, and made way too many phone calls to people to cry and vent. Apparently that was not enough, because although my week got better, I found out all 7 of my roommates from Fox went to a birthday dinner for one of them, and did not invite me. Not a big deal, because I'm not there, right? Normally yes, but they also invited the Kelsey that left Fox when I did... so I felt really left out. And it was only made worse because I've been missing Fox so much lately that even mentioning it to someone causes me to start crying.
On top of THAT, I was really hoping to see someone this morning and get a hug from them, because they had told me they would be home. They didn't come home... and I was really upset. I don't even know why. I think it's because without my best friend here it's really hard for me to cope without having those three people around that I go to for hugs and venting... and that person is one of them. I kind of lost it... called them a liar. Sigh. I don't understand my mood swings.
Normally this isn't surprising, because I live in Oregon and pretty much have what is called "seasonal depression". Basically it occurs in very snowy or rainy areas, and usually during winters months. People affected by it get depressed more often in the winter, and mainly just because of the weather. This week has suddenly hit 70s and 80s and is sunny, so my mood has considerably improved... but I'm still having these mood swings which don't make sense.
I don't know why I get like this. It's just as frustrating for me as it is for the people that I take it out on. I just want to be happy again.
I haven't updated in awhile, so here's a quick one.
I have finals this week. I'm trying to write my business final paper, but I'm writing this instead. Why? Because once again, I'm over-thinking and reading into people's words.
You say I'm fine... and I believe you. Don't get me wrong, I do. I just don't want to go back to where we were last week. Today was the first time in a few weeks I was happy to talk to you! It shouldn't be that way. Not at all.
I am not trying to make you feel guilty. I'm the one at fault here, I know that. Like I said, I worry. I read into things. It's not healthy, and it certainly doesn't help any of my relationships.
The only thing I can do now is try and move past what's happened. Of course, that's going to be hard. That's who I am, I cling to the past. I'm learning everyday how to do it. I just hope you'll stick by me. I love you.
