send something good!!

Great news!! I have been lucky enough to be chosen to be a part of Send Something Good. A blogger-based "secret Santa" in April!! Basically, you are secretly assigned a fellow blogger and learn as much as you can about them. You then compile a great collection of things they might love and send them their way!! Unfortunately it is fairly late in the game and to whomever is assigned to me, I AM SORRY!!! As you guys know, school is insane and getting crazier! I haven't even gotten on Facebook/Twitter in over 2 weeks! *gasp*
So without further ado, here are a few things about me that I hope will help:

1. I love button down tops! I am so obsessed with the dress down/dress up aspect of them and vintage, cool patterns are my favorite! It also boosts my confidence that they are made loose and I wear a size small! :D
2. Vintage purses are also great! I love just about all of them I ever see. :)
3. I love traveling (even though I haven't gotten to do much yet!) I want to travel the world specifically Paris, London, Monte Carlo, Rome, Spain, Germany, Tokyo, Australia... :)
4. I love food. Just about all of it. My  boyfriend makes the BEST food and I would starve up at school without him!
5. I love rings! I have recently gotten into the stacking/tiny gold ring/silver rings trend(s) and I cannot have enough!
6. I love photography! I am currently saving up for a Nikon DSLR (preferably d3100) so that I can capture the amazing moments instead of trying to remember them later!
7. I love longboarding and playing paintball. I am the only girl on the PB team and it is so bad-a$$!! I just got a new gun (pink, of course) for Christmas from my wonderful boyfriend Tarek, and she is the new love of my life! I also just ordered a new longboard, and will be waiting a while until it gets here!
8. I love the color purple!! And red! They are both tied as my favorite. :) Some other colors I am really into are pastels (purple, pink, green) neon colors (pink, purple, green, blue),  mint green, teal... I think that is it as of this moment!
9. I sincerely enjoy reading. As a college student some may find that strange, but I just feel like I am on vacation when I get immersed in a book! I am a sucker for the Harry Potter series and DREAM of going to Harry Potter land in FL someday.
10. I love Chanel. Someday I want to have my very own bag and am currently saving the pennies for Chanel Chance parfum (the lightest colored one, of course!)
11. My favorite vacation destination is the beach. Period. I love the ocean and am thinking about applying to medical schools in California! YIKES!
12. I am obsessed with collecting makeup brushes. I have recently discovered the reason people need more than one brush in their drawer and I cannot get enough!
13. My favorite brands (unfortunately for my bank account) include Urban Outfitters, J. Crew, Goodwill, thrift stores, H&M, and Forever XXI
14. I apparently LOVE a lot of things which makes me happy!!
(Of course Including my family, little brother (Sam), boyfriend (Tarek), puppies (Jake & Andy) and cat (Harley) even though she is evil!!)

I hope that helps and sorry again about the ridiculously late post!! I can assure you I will love anything that has my name on the box and I can't wait to see how my assigned blogger likes her package! I should probably start shopping for that now...

not so springy of a spring day!

Today's forecast: Sunny and 77 degrees. Today's weather: Rainy and 50 degrees. You would think after living my whole life here in the wonderful state of Ohio I would be used to this nonsense, but nope! Probably won't ever happen.

The good news of today, I discovered Instagram is FINALLY AVAILABLE FOR ANDROID!! I have been waiting... and waiting... and waiting some more for this moment to come and it is finally hereeeee!!! My name is kuriousky so follow me and comment below with your Instagram profile names so that others can follow you and be inspired!

I have a whopping three photos as of right now, but I will have an Instagram widget on the side for you to follow along!!

Have a great week and hopefully your weather is more dress, skirt, and shorts friendly than mine!!
