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

January 2016 Ipsy Bag (+Awesome Announcements)


Hey y’all!

Long time no talk, huh? I’m so so so sorry that I haven’t been very active on here as of lately but, if you’re honestly curious, I started my spring semester of college this past Tuesday! I honestly didn’t anticipate having a very busy week because (if you attend a college or a university, you’d know) the first week of a new semester is typically devoted to going over the course syllabus. However, this semester I actually received quite a few assignments over “Syllabus Week” and the promise I had to make to myself was that I would always put school before my blog. Butttttttttt, I’m back! I promise you that I will post AT LEAST once a week from now on because I’ve missed it and my wittle blog fam. So please, just bear with me and my hectic life!
