    Decor Inspo – Bohemian Bedroom

    Ladies and gentlemen, if I can recommend one thing that one should absolutely not do after a broken relationship, it is revisit your wedding board on Pinterest. I don’t know what in the name of Samhain possessed me but there I was, bawling like a baby over my imaginary, beautiful wedding (really, it was going to be stunning). Honestly. The reason that I was on Pinterest is because I thought I was going to give my room a Bohemian, minimalist makeover with lots of pillows, low-profile bed, plush blankets, lots of beige – something got lost in translation. I don’t know if I just don’t like how low the bed…

    Top Ten Tuesday – Reasons to be Happy

    Ah yes, it is one of those posts because I am having a hard time finding reasons to be happy at the moment. I actually saw something on Instagram about destination fixation; thinking that our lives would be so much better somewhere else, with someone someone else, doing something else. A person can dream all they want, there isn’t anything wrong with wanting a better life but I think that humans can lose sight of what we have in our life right now that makes it wonderful. These are of course relative to my perception and what makes me happy but here’s hoping that you find your own happiness too…

    Happy 4th of July if you are in the states, sadly, the fireworks have been cancelled in my city as we are in a severe thunderstorm warning. I cannot recall the last time that it rained on the 4th but it’s bound to happen some years. Here are a collection of quotes on freedom to celebrate: Enjoy the rest of your week – thanks for stopping by <3

    When Love Isn’t Enough…

    Sheesh, this is a post that I never fathomed that I would be writing. I have been alluding to the fact that some stuff has been going on in my personal life but wasn’t sure what the outcome would be or if I wanted to share anything on my blog or not but since it will impact my bloggerlife, I guess I will. The BF and I have come to the decision to end our 6 1/2 year relationship and it really sucks. We have decided to be amicable and I don’t know if that makes it better or worse, I have only had one other ex-boyfriend and it was…

    I have been on the hunt for the perfect athletic pant for ages, I used to wear some from North Face but they don’t make them anymore and the ones I have are so short I can’t wear them any longer. I don’t understand ‘athleisure’ clothing and that seems to be primarily what’s available unless I want just plain black clothing. I keep looking at Lululemon but holy smokes are they spendy – has anyone tried their clothing? I literally know nothing about the brand, I just have my eye on these running shoes: I have been looking for a soft running shoe and the shoes look great, they come…

    Top Ten Tuesday – Ways to Create Peace of Mind

    I am a pretty easy-going person, I don’t like drama or conflict and I avoid it whenever possible. When something gets under my skin though, it can be really bothersome and I spend a lot of time and energy dwelling on it. Recently, I have found myself in a situation that has really tested my patience and I have been getting back to basics, taking time for myself and trying to look at the situation from all angles to appreciate the different points of view. There are lots of ways that we can create peace of mind, what works for me may not work for others but here are some…

    I leave for my lunch break today because I didn’t pack my lunch and was jonesing for a diet Coke which my skin will pay for later. I drive by the local McDonald’s and there are at least 30 cars stacked up, I figured that the McRib was back (gag) so I went to a gas station. Turns out, the internet was down for a portion of the city and they couldn’t take electronic payment. A rather obnoxious fellow was heckling the clerk and says, Of course I don’t have cash. Who carries cash? It’s the 21st Century! This guy hasn’t scene Terminator apparently but Doomsday Prepper Stella shines in…

    Monday Must Have – Australian Gold

    Shout out to Kim for posting about this amazing sunscreen in her Affordable Alternatives to Drunk Elephant Skincare post and convincing me to give it a whirl! I am not one to be on the look out for dupes, mostly because I am just bad at it and the few that I have found have been completely by accident. I appreciate all of you who put in the time finding dupes and then sharing them because it’s super helpful! Sunscreen and I do not get along, never have and it’s really frustrating since I have to wear sunscreen because I burn so easily. Most sunscreens will either break me out…

    First Impression Friday – Glossier

    It’s June 15th, people, Incredibles II came out today and you better believe that I will be pushing little kids down in the theater tonight. Also, I don’t want to hear any crying or whining from any kids who can’t respect the sanctity of this film, I will be shushing so fair warning. Seriously though, is anyone else super jazzed that this finally came out?! Too bad I am so responsible, should’ve cut work – I hope my employer appreciates this sacrifice. I woke up early so that I could take some photos of my makeup but it was thunder-storming and I gave up on a good shot but I…

    Glossier Haul

    Glossier – the brand that I am not nearly cool enough to use but keeps sucking me in with their flawless marketing and minimal chic aesthetic. Just take my money. I have been waiting to use up the rest of my tube of Boy Brow before I placed an order for their new mascara, it’s been a tense few weeks as I was sure that it would sell out but I was in luck. There were also a couple of new products that I have been waiting to try and some of them I anti-hauled but purchased anyway because I’m a jackass. Judge me later, let’s get to the goodies!!…
