Andy and I booked a trip to Punta Cana and it’s in just a few weeks! Believe it or not, Andy actually only has one week off the entire year and probably wont be coming home until next may (moment for gut wrenching pain) So, we thought we’d take advantage of the time he does have off and do a much needed vacation! If anyone has any ideas for bathing suits, PLEASE SHARE. Because the ones I have currently don’t fit me and that just simply won’t do.
At the risk of jinxing everything, my skin is currently doing surprisingly well. I looked back at some old logs of skin products (yes I log what I use) and my skin seems to be at it’s best when I’m keeping it minimal (I’ll give my friend Emily a moment to say I told you so). So as of right now I am using Cetaphil to cleanse my face in the morning and night and Aveeno Positively Radiant Moisturizer after cleansing. Because I spent money on Glossier’s Solution, I’ll use it every once and a while when I’m feeling congested because it is mild… but only when I really need it.
I’m currently sitting at my desk, writing this, eating a chick pea salad and sesame spinach. I’m going on vacation in a couple weeks, so I’ve been trying to keep it healthy. Excluding my coffee I’ve been trying to cut out sugar and carbs for the entire month of June… it’s been going weirdly well but I plan to cheat on my birthday this weekend and I just don’t know if this is the life I want to live lol.
It’s my birthday this weekend! The winter blues hit me hard this year, and while I am normally so excited for my birthday… I found it very difficult to plan this year and I wasn’t motivated to do anything at all. Thankfully, mother nature kissed my forehead, gave me warm weather and told me everything is going to be okay. So, I managed to plan a last minute weekend with my friends… and I’m extremely excited and glad I decided to do something. It will involve shopping, cupcakes (oops), sushi, Missy Elliot music, dancing, a cute outfit, and probably Mcdonalds at the end of the night (or mac and cheese).
Andy and I finally got to watch the movie ‘A Quiet Place’. Him and I are huge horror movie fans, and unlike most horror movies that have been coming out lately, this one got really good reviews. Anyways, it was amazing. Not your typical horror movie, I’d call it more of a thriller but if you haven’t seen it I strongly suggest it!
None of my jeans fit. Typically when I complain about my weight, I usually get the ‘omg shut up you’re so skinny’ thing. So I tend to avoid the topic all together because I’m naturally a lengthy person. But I feel like when your clothes no longer fit, then changes need to be made. My job is a ‘work from home’ job, and while there are a lot of perks to that… my mobility is pretty limited. Therefore, before I could realize it… my clothes just kind of gave up on me. So while I would like to feel comfortable in a bikini on the beach for vacation… I feel this chick pea salad is also necessary for my wallet so I don’t need to go out and spend money on NEW CLOTHES!
I think I’m going to try and get back into Youtube Videos. Now, don’t get TOO excited… I don’t mean like full blown Youtuber. But I do have some ideas for my blog that videos would really help with, especially make-up related. So hopefully, I can get those going soon.
As usual, my posting schedule is erratic and I hate it. My goal is always to post at least once a week, but I always end up getting overwhelmed with what to post and end up posting nothing. That is why I hope these more laid back, chit chat blogs will help break my cycle of not posting. As usual, I’m sorry for constantly being delayed. I REALLY WANT TO CHANGE.
I’ve started putting glitter on my eyes. Is this fact important? Not really… but I felt it needed to be shared. I recently saw a friend who eyes look like Tinkerbell lived inside them, and she told me that she just takes the glitter puff that came with her Britney Spears perfume set and start dabbing it on her eyes. Well, as a collector of all kinds of body/facial glitters that never get used… I’ve immediately started applying glitter to my eyes daily. Am I the only person who really doesn’t like eye shadow?? Every time I try to use it I hate how it turns out… it could be because I’m terrible at it. But the glitter is working for me and I don’t think I’ll ever change.
I’m already getting excited for Halloween. This is pretty typical for me… around May I start to feel Halloween in my bones and now is when I start brainstorming what I’m going to be. I have ALWAYS wanted to be Queen Frostine from the Candyland board game, so that is something I’ve been deeply considering.. and maybe if Andy is back we’ll make it Mr. Mint (omg I’m already dying to make this happen). But, I ALWAYS think I’ve chosen my costume and then by the time Fall actually rolls around, I almost ALWAYS end up with a scary/gorey look. So we’ll have to wait and see I guess!
