Happy Cinco de Mayo AND my first day of Summer break!

So... I'm done with school for a whole stress free month!!! I slept until 11 this morning! I didn't even know that was possible for me anymore. I've been catching up on life today. Doing laundry, cleaning my neglected apartment, getting a good workout in, and starting a new book! I picked up The Carrie Diaries the new Candace Bushnell book last week and then I hid it from myself so I wouldn't read it instead of studying. :)

I'll let ya'll know how I like it when I get finished. I'm thinking it will make for some perfect poolside reading!

So during finals, I wasn't getting much sleep and looked pretty frightful at times. I managed to make myself at least look alive with the help of a few of my favorite things that I've blogged about before.

I love my Neutrogena eye brightener. It makes me look like I've gotten at least some sleep!

Nars bronzer. When I'm tired I look paler than usual so it's critical that I don't skimp on the bronzer.

And of course Jergens Natural Glow. Everyone looks better with a bit of a tan. Even when they are sleep deprived and living in yoga pants and tshirts :)

Anyway, tonight I'm hoping to head to my favorite Mexican restaurant with some friends to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a big margarita. :) And tomorrow I have a day of shopping planned with my friend Catherine. It's our tradition that as soon as finals are over we go treat ourselves. I'm trying to catch up on everyone's blogs today and I'm looking forward to being able to actually bring ya'll some good posts soon. Hope everyone is having a good day!

Have a great weekend, girl!
