February 2016 Ipsy Glam Bag Unbagging


Hey y’all!

Today I woke up to an email from my university saying I had a package waiting to be picked up and I about jumped out of my skin with joy because I was expecting both my Serengetee Rep Package and my February Ipsy glam bag! When I was handed the little pink bubble mailer I was so eager to get back to my room and rip it open because hello, it’s like Christmas every time I receive it! Ipsy is a monthly subscription service where you pay $10 (including shipping!) and you receive 5 full or deluxe-sized products AND an adorable make up bag – what a steal! If you want to see all the cute lil’ goodies that I received this month, stay tuned!  Continue reading

EASY MAKEUP ROUTINE — for the college girls


Hello ladies! My name is Taylor, from the Blonde and Ambitious Blog. I am SO EXCITED to be guest blogging on Project Hay this week! Hayley and I have been working on putting this together for the past few weeks and I just have to say – she is awesome. Legitimately one of the most adorable and genuine people I have ever met! I am so happy to be her friend, and I obviously adore her sweet blog. It is perfect for you college girls…and speaking of college girls and college in general…

I have put together for you a little list of tips for incorporating an easy makeup routine for those of us who aren’t….morning people (hi, that’s me…) It only take a few minutes so you can be sure to get every last second of sleep. We all know how it is. Don’t lie.

 This routine is very skin focused. I’m sure you have heard it all before (but just in case you are new to the whole taking care of your face deal), but let me just pound it into your head: you don’t need to wear NEARLY as much makeup (okay, nobody NEEDS to wear makeup, you beautiful goddesses, you) if you take care of your skin. It will have its own natural glow. I tend to use a little more makeup in the winter because I am pale as heck.  ALRIGHT. I’m done preaching to you. Let’s get down to it.  Continue reading

My Head is an Animal: A Winter Playlist


Hey y’all!

I hope you guys had a wonderful and blessed week! On Monday, we had a really big snow storm and we were in white-out conditions all day. Sounds awful, right? It was to an extent but it was also so beautiful and I wish that I didn’t have class because I could have curled up under a warm blanket with a steaming hot, sweet cup of coffee and a good book and I would have been the happiest lil’ camper around. Unfortunately, I had to lace up my duck boots and throw on a heavy jacket and trek through the arctic tundra I call my home just to learn about Microeconomics. That part was definitely gross. However, not everything about walking to class in sub-freezing temperatures was terrible. I had actually created the perfect playlist that just fits the mood of winter so well and I thought it would be fun to share it with you today! Continue reading
