I Applied to Grad School!

Ordinary Adventures

It’s done.

As of 3:53 PM yesterday, my graduate school application has been sent out. Now it is in the hands of the lovely admissions officers at George Mason University who will decide my fate.

I want to feel hopeful, confident, happy. Yet, I can help but be riddled with self doubt and anxiety. There are some many reasons I should be nervous, to be honest. But at the same time, I’m trying to remind myself of some pros I have in my corner.

Before I get tooooo ahead of myself, I should finally reveal what degree I’m aiming for, what concentration I’ll delve into, and what exactly I applied to!

After a lot of soul searching, listening to all of the beautiful advise you guys gave me, and most importantly, amazing luck, I picked my program. Here’s the story.

I was wracking my mind to pick between a masters in…

My Third Favorite Liquid Lipstick: Dose of Colors Truffle, Berry Me, + Berry Me 2


Hi there! Here they are – my third favorite liquid lipsticks come from Dose Of Colors. I remember meeting the owner of this company at IMATS Los Angeles and she was the sweetest! She is very humble and truly specializes in customer satisfaction.

These liquid lipsticks dry matte and are lightweight in feel. They are long wearing (it was difficult to remove the swatches on my arm, too) and are true to color.

With the top three of my liquid lipsticks completed – I feel as though liquid lips are not only a trend but appear to have become a mainstay. I appreciate how liquid lipsticks feel and how the ones I own last longer than a lipstick itself.


Xx, Gigi

Aero Press Coffee Maker | My Aero Press Coffee Maker

Are you a coffee drinker?  Up until about 6 months ago, I would have said “Not me, no way, I never drink coffee!”  Then I slowly started to drink coffee and it has all been down hill since then, haha, just kidding.  I do enjoy drinking coffee now.  I am not one to go to a drive-thru, so I needed to learn how to make my own coffee.  I also didn’t want to get another appliance to take up room on my already limited kitchen counter space.

My husband suggested that I try out an Aero Press.   I am not going to lie, I made several really bad cups of coffee before figuring out what worked…
