    Halloween Decor Haul!

    I had today off for the sole purpose of finishing my shopping for Halloween decor. I wanted to be out early and home early because I can’t be bothered with people, so I am driving around at 6 AM and realized that the only stores open that early are grocery stores, Walmart and pharmacies. I haven’t been going into Walmart, I blogged about that a while ago because I just don’t love supporting them. I sucked it up and found some really cute things, I hope that my $34 goes to a good cause. Next stop was Target which didn’t have their Halloween stuff out even though their website said…

    Fall Anti-Haul

    So, I put my Halloween decor up and some people might think that it’s too soon, I can respect that. A 3-month Halloween celebration might not be for everyone, no I take it all down on November 1. Or do I? I mean, you’d really never know, that shit could be up all year. Anyway, what I can’t respect and made me lose my shit while scrolling through social media is that brands are already releasing or at least issuing 2018 advent calendars. Are you kidding me!? Then I realized that it’s just about that time of year when brands start releasing all of their holiday collections and I figured…

    Easter Decor Inspo!

    It doesn’t feel very spring-like here with 5-7 inches of snow on the way but I was poking around in Bath and Body Works this weekend and looking at their spring candles. I didn’t purchase any because I am just not ready. I just realized that prior to moving to MN, I never talked about the weather – maybe I did but certainly not as obsessively as I do now that I live here. I can’t lie, I don’t like Easter, I don’t even like spring and I think it’s because of the pastels and allergies. Mostly allergies…or is it the pastels? I think this is the first year that…

    Valentine’s Day Tag

    Tired of hearing about V-day? These are for you: This tag is from last year but I gave it a little reboot – enjoy! Gummie, cinnamon hearts – yea, you should only eat 1 or 2 but they are so delicious. I have an addition to this, I recently discovered these Sea Salt Caramels from Russell Stover and I hope that they are seasonal because I am addicted. Sweethearts suck, talk about Depression-era candy and I am allergic to strawberries. Worst choices ever but I guess I would have to take those tooth cracking, powdery pieces of chemical tasting sugar abominations. I mean, they are really gross – it can’t just…

    V-Day Watch List

    Eek! So, this post might look familiar and it is because I posted this last February. I am not crazy about re-using old posts but when I sat down to start talking about my fave romantic comedies, the list hasn’t changed! Sleepless in Seattle – We all knew this one would be on here, I went through a phase where I was watching this on repeat and then it was removed from Netflix 🙁 (Since it was removed from Netflix, I got a copy of the blu-ray) I took this as a personal affront to my emotional well-being (still true). Sam and Jonah are the sweetest father/son duo who just lost…

    V-Day Decor Inspo

    If I have to start showing my ID to purchase Tide Pods – I will fight some kids. If Robo-tripping and the new pod eating trend aren’t examples of the de-evolution of the human race, then I don’t know what it is. The dreaded V-Day is almost upon us, while I don’t celebrate the holiday and the BF is under the strictest direction that he doesn’t either, I think that the decorations get better every year! I only just got into decorating for V-Day in the last couple of years or so but it has quickly become a favourite. I think that I am going to DIY a few things this…

    The Body Shop – Festive Shea Picks

    One would think that consumers would be all shopped out but I too was up and about early to take advantage of the after holiday sales. I scored big at Target on some vintage inspired ornament sets – then got home and realized that I am out of storage, I think that this is the year of downsizing. It is frigid out there, I hope that everyone caught in these winter storms is staying warm! I received this lovely Shea Giftset from The Body Shop and I am super excited to use it. I have used different products from this brand before but mostly face stuff, I usually pass on the…

    On the Last Day of Blogmas: Décor & MOTD

    Yet another Christmas in the books, we did not get 6 inches of snow as predicted – my Christmas wish is that all weather people be fired. Does that job need to even exist? No. I will be packing up the décor today, but took a few snaps of the living room before I get to it. The living room was pretty traditional, the BF doesn’t like the pastels so those primarily go in the middle room and bathrooms. The tree is red and gold: I picked up this wooden sign from Michael’s a couple of years ago, I am headed there tomorrow to check out their clearance and see…

    World of Legendary Parties – XII & A Recap

    Eek! I am super bummed yet excited that we are here, it is Christmas Eve. Once the holidays are over, February through April is just a long slog to me and I hate summer so that’s it for the year 😛 Anyway, the last goodie in this box was actually a bit surprising – it is a Lip Lustre Lip Gloss in Sweet Stiletto. It is a pink-y shade that I will wear but I would have swapped the full-size lippie from one of the first drawers and the gloss because that just seems like a better gift for Christmas Eve. Aesthetics aside, this is a lovely shade, it has a doe-foot applicator…

    On the 12th Day of Blogmas – Bath Treats

    I don’t think I am going to make it to LUSH this year for their holiday range, I went to the store too early and I just don’t see myself making it back while the products are still in stores. I do have a bit of a tradition of purchasing the Philosophy holiday scents, mostly as gifts but I have a few left over for me this year! This product is supposed to be suitable for use as a shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath but I’ve honestly only used them as bubble bath. These make a really nice bath, the scents are subtle but enjoyable and the product amount…
