Popsugar Box, Cookie Flavored Popcorn, and Getting My Life

Some days I just don’t feel like it. It’s like living a week of Mondays. Today is Tuesday-Monday…or is it Monday-Tuesday? Who knows? On my Instagram, I post daily affirmations. They really are my touchstones. Affirmations like, “As long as I have peace of mind, I have everything that I need.” My Instagram And I really believe them. But sometimes trying to commit to a life of simplicity and positivity, can be really complex and crappy. (See what I did up there?) I am definitely trying to simplify and organize…

What I Wore Wednesday

Wardrobe Wednesday So I wear clothes. I know, hard to believe right? LOL But I actually do. And when I do, I actually like to look good, doesn’t everybody? Now I have to admit, that for me, its a delicate balance. On the one hand, I have to consider size, I am not a small lady, but I am not necessarily large either and I have to consider age because I want to dress very chic and on trend without looking like I am trying too hard. I also have…

Brunch, Braids, and Tequila Jell-O Shots

Ahh…this past weekend was quite a lively one, filled with…ahem…tequila, good food and friends. This weekend we celebrated my daughter’s 23rd birthday, went to a new place for brunch, and I experimented with a new braided hairstyle. The weekend started early on Thursday, with a lovely homemade lemonade margarita that the the little girl made to toast her bday. They are very refreshing, especially if you add a sugar rim.               So about the braids, I decided that this Summer, I  was going to rock the trendy…

Holy Bath Bombs, Batman!!

Holy Bath Bombs, Batman!! I took the plunge…literally. The actual real literal use of literally, plunge and OMG was it amazing! Oh, Lush Intergalactic Bath Bomb, where have you been all my life? In my post, Cosmos in My Bath, Or Nah, I was debating whether or not to take a nice long blue soak using Lush’s psychedelic bath bomb. I had questions… Would popping candy really take me around the  Milky Way? Would peppermint and neon colour swirls send my mood rocketing? Would there be a layer of smutz…

Moodboard Monday: Lips, Nails, and Other Stuff

Moodboard Monday is a feature that I used to have on my last blog and that I have continued on Instagram. Its a small chronicle of some things I did or noticed or happened upon this last week. Descriptions of photos from left to right: My babygirl!! This little girl gives me so much life. She is like a mini me, but wiser and cuter. This patriotic glitter nail polish from NCLA, Born on the 4th of July, that I received in my July Glossybox has come in handy as…

What the Heck is in My Makeup Bag, Anyway?

Of course, since I am simplifying my life, product reviews may be few and far between, and while funny and strange things do happen, my average day is typically filled with working on my computer at the coffee shop and then coming home and being incredibly domestic. Not much excitement happens when you’re cooking chicken or making toilet bombs. Just sayin’.

Cosmos In My Bath…Or Nah?

This bath bomb, this Intergalactic Bath bomb from Lush holds so many promises. Just read the description from the Lush site. “Ever wondered what bathing in deep space would be like? Invite the cosmos into your bathroom with this sexy, interstellar bomb and become the guardian of your own galaxy. An awesome mix of refreshing peppermint and neon colour sends your mood rocketing, while popping candy takes you on a trip around the Milky Way. Constellations swirl and pop, creating vibrant lustre vortexes in the night sky. Before you leap…

Oh No, Not Another Lifestyle Blog!

Do you think there are too many Lifestyle Bloggers? Fashion Bloggers? Beauty Bloggers? I mean, after all, what else is there to say? How many beauty products, trends, travel tips, food posts can one read before they all become repetitive, mundane, annoying? Heck, you review one BB Creme, you’ve essentially reviewed them all, right? And aren’t most lifestyle bloggers really just shallow, pretentious, narcissistic, selfie posting, twenty-somethings who just want to make people believe that they are living these amazing lives when they are really just blogging from their childhood bedrooms,…
