Lately, I have been completely obsessed with traveling. I've always known I wanted to travel the world someday, but I just felt like I would never financially be able to do so. I was so discouraged that I pretty much stopped thinking about it all together up until very recently. I saw a flyer at my school for the study abroad program and I just got super enthusiastic about traveling again. So I've been looking for ways to travel on a very low budget. Surprisingly, there are tons of ways to travel for cheap! Now that I know it's definitely possible for me to travel, I've been working on my travel bucket list. I thought it would be cool to share with you guys. I'll probably end up adding more, but for now this is it. What are some places you would like to travel to?

Back in August I did a review of One Directions first makeup collection. I use that collection often so I was pretty excited when I got a chance to review their next collection. This collection consists of five different tins, one for each of the boys. I received Zayn, Niall, and Harry. I initially thought the different sets had different makeup products, but actually the only thing different is the design on the tins. All of the tins contain the same makeup products and colors.
As for the makeup, I'm not a huge fan. The eyeshadows are absolutely gorgeous at first, but when you get past the first layer, the color changes. It starts off really shimmery and then it turns matte. I dislike matte eyeshadows so I was bummed out about that. The eyeliner doesn't last and the nail polishes chip right away. However, I did actually like the lip glosses! They're pretty and feel really nice on my lips. I will add swatches later!
I know this collection is mostly aimed at younger girls so I didn't expect it to be high-end quality, but I'm still a bit disappointed. As I stated before, I love the previous collection. Unfortunately, I'm just not happy with this collection.

I've been using this for a few months now and I'm so happy with the results. I was a bit discouraged when I didn't see results right away, but after awhile the results are definitely worth the wait. It has helped even out my skin and fade dark spots. I've even noticed that it makes my skin glow. I also really love that it's cruelty-free and all natural. I'm trying to transition into only using all natural and cruelty-free beauty products.
The serum only costs $22.99! I think that's a pretty good price for such an amazing product. I definitely recommend this product to anyone who wants to enhance their skin tone. The site claims that the serum works on all skin types, but I have oily to normal skin and it does dry my skin out if I use it every day. Therefore, I'm not entirely sure how it would affect someone with dry skin. However, if you do order it and it doesn't work for you, they will refund you! So there's really no risk.
Although I did get this sent to me for free, this is 100% my honest opinion. I really do love this serum! I will be purchasing another one very soon.
