Sunday Social #3

It's Sunday Funday! And you know what that means! Another Sunday Social link up with Ashley from Ashley's Carnival Ride and Neely from A Complete Waste of Make Up. This week's questions are all about the internet!

1. What is the first website you log on to each day?
Every morning the first thing I do is grab my phone, turn off the alarm clock and then check out my notifications. So depending on which social media site has the most notifications that's usually the one I log on to first. So the battle for my affection is usually between Twitter and Facebook.

2. Give us some funny websites you visit that we need to know about
I rarely visit websites other than Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Since I have an I-phone I usually just use apps. The one I usually go to for a good laugh is 'FML'

3. Pinterest or Facebook? Why?
Oh my gosh this one is a hard one, but I would have to say Pinterest :) I mean I just created an account like a week ago and I am hooked! You can find so many things there! I can fantasize about all the pretty things I want but can't afford.

4. Twitter or Instagram? Why?
I would have to say Twitter. Instagram is awesome don't get me wrong but with Twitter I feel like you can do a little bit more.

5. Favorite youtube it!

I swear, this video NEVER gets old! It's hilarious! "Hide your kids, hide your wife" lol It cracks me up!

6. Biggest online pet peeve?
When a website takes FOREVER to load! Or when people talk smack to other people, it's like if you have a problem with someone say it to their face, don't just do it while sitting behind a computer. LAME!

Aw, that felt good to get off my chest lol. Until next time my lovely readers :)

My College life 101.Part 2

Every year there is a HUGE welcome back celebration at NMSU,which is called  "Aggie Welcome and Orientation. " Each day there are different activities throughout campus and one off campus. This particular event was held this past Tuesday at Target, the event was from 10pm-12:30am. So the fun part about this was that the event was only for  NMSU students, it gave us a chance to do a last minute shopping before school started. PLUS there was a DJ inside the store so that was fun also :)

So while my boyfriend and I were waiting in line for the store to open we were informed by target employees of the safety rules we should follow to make our trip more fun and enjoyable, they also informed us of this giveaway that target was doing. All we had to do was text 'NMSU' to 'Target' and we would be eligible to win some amazing prices that included a year supply of 'Vitamin Water' and some free electronics such as the new I-Pad2. And of course I had to enter! I mean,  I wouldn't mind a free I-Pad :)

Too bad I was not an instant winner, nor was my boyfriend.
It took us maybe 20 minutes after the doors open for us to get inside, Target was letting small groups in at a time, that way no accidents happened. Once we made it to the entrance there were Target employees handing out Vitamin Water to all the students.

I was sooooo thankful for that! I was so thirsty that I finished my water in one big gulp lol And once we were inside there were more employees handing goodie bags! And this is what was inside:

3 mini samples of Neutrogena products.
  Neutrogena: Triple protect face lotion, with SPF 20

"Directions: Apply liberally to entire face and neck after shaving or when skin needs moisture"  
Neutrogena: oil-free moisture, with SPF 15

"Directions: Apply on face and neck"
Neutrogena: Foaming scrubs.

"Directions: Squeeze scrub into wet hands. Rub hands together. Add more water and rub hands to work into foamy lather. Apply to face and massage gently, avoiding contact with delicate eye area. Rinse thoroughly. Use daily."

I have never tried any of these products. So  I'm gonna use the samples and see what I think!

There was also a small booklet full of coupons.

Purell: Spongebob Splash

Now this is an item that everyone must carry with them! 

And finally the goodie bag had this Emergen-C packet, which is a system support with vitamin D, and the flavor I got was citrus. I've had Emergen-C before and same flavor too, I liked it so I'm happy about this one!

And then in different locations Target employees where given out some more goodies,  so I got free gum and some breakfast biscuits. :)

So overall these are all the free items I got during the shopping trip. Plus the ones we actually bought. Which I will show you later on in another post! :)

Sunday Social #2

Hello Dolls! Today I am linking up again with Ashley from Ashley's Carnival Ride and Neely from A Complete Waste of Make Up for Sunday Social. Today's questions are about the good old times!

1. What were you like in Middle School/HS?(pictures)
I was the trend setter of my group, I wasn't afraid to try something new. I was very social and had lots of friends.  I was a little nerd too, I was an A/B honor roll student throughout my middle school years.

Yup. I had braces from 8th grade all the way to sophomore year. Oh and glasses, but I got my contacts my freshman year.

I also had a lot of school spirit. This is me freshman year of High School.


Senior homecoming dance. The theme was 'safari'

After graduation. 

2.  What were your favorite past times? 
The thing to do in middle school was go to the mall and to the movies, that's all we did. 

My partner in crime. Amanda, been BFFs since 8th grade :)

During High School it was all about going to football games, and hanging out at a friend's house.

3. What songs were you obsessed with?
Back then l I was all about Linking Park, Simple plan,  Eminem, and Avril Lavigne.

I was so  obsessed with this song! 

4. What fashion statement do you look back on and cringe?  
Actually nothing at all, I don't think I ever dressed up bad. The only thing was probably my make up. I was an eyeliner kind of girl... and that's it. Didn't wear mascara until my senior year of high school. So now I find that weird that I didn't apply both. 

5. Who was your celeb crush? 

From the big screen: Channing Tatum.

From the small screen (back then) Zac Efron

6. What were your favorite tv shows/movies? 
TV shows:



I watched a lot of movies during my younger days, but one of my favorite ones was Step Up. That's where I fell in love with Channing Tatum :)

Today's questions brought back some good old memories! Wish I had middle school pictures to show you but unfortunately those are at my parents house, so maybe some other time!

My college life 101. Part 1

And the official countdown begins! In exactly one week school starts again.Uh where did my summer go?!? I feel like it went by soooo fast. I'm sad that I really didn't have a vacation but I am planning on going out of town during my winter break! Maybe go snowboarding, who knows! The only thing I do know is that I am actually ready for school! If everything goes right this will be my last year of college, and it feels amazing knowing that I am almost done and ready to take on the world. But before I do that I want to share with you a little bit of my college life and myself.

I am attending New Mexico State University which is located in Las Cruces, New Mexico. I transferred to NMSU last year from a community college, which I did to save my parents money (college is expensive when you don't have loans or grants to back you up) ANYWAYS! Back to the cool stuff, I also want to share the history of the college and some pics.

"New Mexico State University  was founded to teach agriculture in 1888 as the Las Cruces College, and the following year became New Mexico College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts. It received its present name in 1960. "-source

"NMSU's teams are called the Aggies, a nickname derived from the university's agricultural beginnings...NMSU maintains strong athletic rivalries with the University of New Mexico. The UNM-NMSU rivalry is represented by the Rio Grande Rivalry, a series based on points awarded to the winners of head to head competitions between the two universities in every sport."-source

""A" Tradition In 1920, students of then New Mexico College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts scouted for an appropriate place to display their school letter. Tortugas Mountain, located three miles (5 km) east of campus, seemed a natural spot. Brave males gathered enough stones to form a big "A" easily visible from campus and the surrounding area. On the following day, April 1, students trudged up the mountain side with their five-gallon cans of whitewash and splashed it on the stones, turning them into a gleaming white "A". For many years, giving the "A" its annual fresh coat of whitewash was an all school effort. The seniors mixed lime and water at the foot of the mountain and the freshmen and sophomores toted the mixture up to the juniors who splashed it on the "A."-source

This is our bookstore!-source

This is the inside of the bookstore!-source

"The interior space features a 4/5th scale model of a de Havilland DH 82 Tiger Moth Pistol Pete airplane suspended from the ceiling and is one of the many unique touches displayed throughout the store. The interior also showcases photographs and fixtures that highlight the rich history of NMSU, Las Cruces, New Mexico, and the southwest"-source

And these are just a couple more pictures I want to share with you all!

Until next time! And remember to stay tuned for my upcoming group giveaway! :)
