Only one more day left in 2012! I can’t believe it’s almost twenty-thirteen. This year has been amazing…two new jobs, new home, and new friends just to name a few!
With a heart full of thanks, I’ll leave you with some more favorites that I’ll continue to use as we head into twenty-thirteen.
At $6-8 this facial cream is amaze! I use it everyday to moisturize my skin prior to putting on my makeup. Not only is it non-greasy, but gives my skin a soft and smooth finish. This is a cheaper alternative to Olay’s other face creams - and a little bit goes a long way! I use the *normal* cream. Pictured is the one for sensitive skin.
St. Tropez Tan & Applicator Mitt
The mitt is a MUST! #1: It’s washable. #2: It helps avoids messy stains #3: It has a waterproof barrier to ensure your hands don’t get the noticeable tan marks. You can find this product at Sephora or online. It goes on sale every once and while too - so keep an eye out! I’ll let my love for this tanning mouse be shown through my tweet.
As said above, I love a company who is utilizing social media for customer service and engaging with their customers! Anyone needing a little pale pick-me-up…invest in St. Tropez.
My last favorite for the year isn’t a product, but a movie rather. If you have not seen this movie…GO! I talked about this movie for a week after I saw it. It will change you.
Now I want to hear your favorites! Or if you have any products you’d like me to review - let me know.
Be open to the possibilities this year will hold.
Will write soon.
After a looooong hiatus I am back to bloggin’! Recently, I’ve been loving more and more products and have wanted to share them with you all but feel silly posting one little thing on Facebook. Not sure how a blog post makes me feel less ridiculous…? Anyways, since I don’t have the courage to make YouTube videos yet. I thought this would suffice. Here’s what I’ve been loving lately and today’s ‘Friday Favorites’ for Friday the 13th.
This stuff is AMAZE. Okay, I can admit I didn’t always feel this way. I went through a phase with this product where it came out white! Because of this, it found its way to the back of my makeup cart. Well, now that it’s summer again (aren’t we all prone to a little more oil and sweat?) I thought I’d try it again. I’m back to loving this product. For around $6, this is a great alternative to having to wash and style your hair the next day. (No, I won’t tell you how many days I’ve gone without washing my hair…but I will say this stuff saves me *hit the snooze button, ladies!*) If you’re up for more a splurge, I’ve heard rave reviews about Oscar Blandi’s ($25).
My next favorite is all thanks to my family friend, Carrie! One day my sister came to visit and had one of these awesome bracelets on. I instantly fell in love. Flash forward to a month later and our family friends, The Browns came to visit. I noticed Mrs. Carrie Brown had one on too! Little did I know, her shop in Minnesota sold them. Happily to my surprise she sent my mom and I some the next week (plus an awesome cuff version!) I’ve worn it every day since!
Humanity Bracelets donates 25% of their proceeds to various non-profit organizations in support of worldwide humanitarian efforts. LOVE.
P.S. Thank you Carrie from Electric Fetus! Her shop is one of my favorites in MN…full of awesome music and cool gifts!
Sorry to cut this blog post short, going out to dinner with my new friend, Amanda!
Hello my sweet Tumblr,
It’s been a while. I’m sorry, I promise I haven’t forgotten about you. Maybe this isn’t a resolution, but I want to write more. I hope to transition this site into more of my thoughts and keep my picture posting to my Pinterest (follow me there for daily design/wedding & event/wardrobe inspo :) ).
Well, it’s 2012 now. Yet another year is upon us. It’s always interesting to look back on a year. I can’t help but feel like it’s whizzed by like a fast car. For that reason only a few memories, photos, and moments stand out to me. I was filled with a lot of joy this past year from working as an Orientation Assistant, falling in love with San Luis Obispo, reuniting with an old friend from Minnesota, and surviving my freshman year of college just to name a few. I’m living my life with a little more independence, and with that comes its challenges, mostly revolving around school, finding time to do it all, and learning more about myself.
I’m a ‘yes’ person, a people pleaser if you will. I say yes to a lot of people, things, responsibilities—not because I feel like I have to, but because I feel like I should. Looking back, there are some things I shouldn’t have agreed too, whether it ran me down physically or emotionally, I just should’ve answered differently. I can’t blame myself for agreeing, sometimes it’s just easiest. My point isn’t to reflect on that, my point is to acknowledge the beautiful awareness I have that I am equipped to serve. In a year from now when I look back on 2012, just like I’m reflecting on this past year, I hope to see an active life of a lot of opportunities and wonderment, simply because I said, ‘yes.’ That’s what has made my life fulfilling and worth living.
I hope you had a happy holiday season and are enjoying the new year. Resolution or not, I hope you can take some time for yourself and reflect on the past year. Maybe you’ll see things you wish had gone differently, or there is something you’d like to learn from…maybe you had the happiest moment of your life in 2011….cherish all of those memories, photos and moments. In the end, it’s a good thing to be aware of the person you are and be proud of that, even if you have to accept it first.
I’m a football fan, a dog lover, a romantic, and the girl that can’t tell a story without laughing. I’m a perfectionist, a planner, a little bit picky and a lot indecisive. I’m a girl that says ‘yes’ to risks, BIG dreams, and creating the life I want to live.
My cute crooked Christmas tree :)
Wishing a Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
