Moving day!

So today I am moving to my new apartment!  (Reason for my lack of posts lately...) I've been crazy busy with 12 hr days in lab, but on the plus side I am going to be on my first publication! So cool!
And now I am busy packing up my life so I can move everything today! I am moving into a one bedroom and I am SO excited to decorate! I have posted two possible color schemes I am debating, please let me know which one you like better! Of course, I was limited to polyvore's items they have (I was too lazy to add my own), so I can change things but this is the general concept of what I was thinking! I am torn! Or I am also open to other color suggestions!
What do you think?!
I also bought a 40" TV yesterday. SO EXCITED for it to be delivered tomorrow!!!
I can't wait to have my apartment set up! I will post pictures when everything is organized and set up!

May Ipsy Glam bag review!

So I LOVED May's Glam bag! Loved the items.
First, I loved the lipgloss from Juice Beauty. It was very shiny, shimmery, and tasted/smelled awesome. I have been using it a lot recently so it is almost out! If you go to their website,, the gloss is $15, the reflecting gloss. It is a little on the expensive side, but I think it's a good deal. I would maybe want a little more in the tube but I'd buy it. If you buy before June 15, you can get 20% off using the code 'Ipsy20'!

New beauty buys!

So today I took the day off from work and took a day to myself. I went to the gym in the morning, burned a nice 400 calories on the elliptical, went to group meeting for work, and then took a drive to Santa Monica's 3rd Street Promenade to do some shopping. It was great! Such a beautiful day!

Happy Happy June! Officially a PhD Candidate!!

Happy news everyone!
I passed my PhD Orals Qualifying Exam!
I am officially a PhD candidate! WooooHoo!
This was probably one of the most stressful academic experiences I have ever had!
I had to come up with a 10,000 word proposal on a topic I am not doing research on, and then do an oral presentation in front of a committee of 5 professors (thats 5 PhDs right there!) It was a little more than intimidating!!!! I was SUPER stressed this whole month of May leading up to my exam (which is why I have a lack of posts this past month). But now I AM BACK! Sorry for the slight break! I really needed it to keep focused and pass!
