What I'm Thankful For 2013

Hey loves! Happy Thanksgiving! I just wanted to take a couple of moments to tell you all what I am thankful for this year!

First and most importantly, I'm thankful for my family. I would be absolutely lost without them. They are my rock and foundation and provide me with all of the love and support that I need. I am especially thankful for my husband. He's a great man that sticks by my side even through my craziest moments!

Second, I'm thankful for my job. It's so hard to find a job these days and I am grateful that I am fortunate enough to have one. Not only do I have one, but I have awesome co-workers which make the job that much easier.

Third, I'm thankful for my health. I am grateful that I haven't had any serious illnesses and that I have been fairly healthy this year. Everyday we see and hear about people battling cancer and I think it's important to be thankful for the good health that I have been able to enjoy.

Fourth, but definitely not the least, I am so thankful for all of my amazing readers/viewers/supporters. Literally, this blog would be nothing without you. You all give me the courage to keep on truckin and producing content. I am grateful for the wonderful friends that I have made through blogging. So many times I want to just give up, but they always give me the little push I need to keep going!

There are so many other things that I am thankful for, but these were the most important to me. I wanted to be sure to share them with you. Thank you all so much for supporting me and being a friend to me. I appreciate it more then I can ever put into words. I love you all!

Would You Rather: Makeup Edition (Tag)

Hey loves! I hope you love tags as much as I do because I have yet another one for you! I was tagged by two beautiful bloggers: Daisy of Daisy's World and Brittnee of A Beauty Product A Day. They are both amazing bloggers and I encourage you all to check out their blogs! On to the tag! 



1. Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lip glosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?

Wow! Way to hit a girl where it hurts! If I give up my mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lip glosses do I still get to have lip balm/chap? I mean a girl can't walk around with crusty lips! Man this is hard....Ok, if I'm not allowed to have lip balm/chap then I think I'd rather lose all of my palettes and eyeshadows. Only because chapped lips are out of the question!

2. Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again? 

Normally, I would say that I'd rather not be able to cut it again, but lately my hair and I haven't been friends so I think I'd rather chop it all off. That way I can still wear pretty wigs and it would be a lot easier to manage than my hair. And I would get to color it and style it many different ways. Just do things that I would never do to my real hair. Yea I'd chop!

Shop My Stash Week 2!

Hey loves! I've been so busy and am so behind on my blogging so I'll be trying to play catch up this week! Last week I introduced you to the Shop My Stash series that I'm doing with my good blogging friends Liz, Shayluna, and Makeup Asylum! You can read about it here if you missed it. Just to catch you up we're not buying any new products this month and instead shopping our stashes to rediscover products that we already own!

I almost had a slip up over the weekend. I went to Ulta with the hubby to look at Urban Decay's Revolution Lipstick. I had purchased one last month, but ended up hating the color. Before I sent it back I wanted to go to the store and pick the perfect color to exchange it for. While there I needed to get shampoo so I decided to look around a bit. I picked up a NYX jumbo eye pencil and headed to the line to check out. Hubby looks at me and goes, "Aren't you doing a no buy challenge with your blogging friends?" Thank God for him otherwise I would've failed majorly! I did put it back just in case you're wondering. Come December 1st though it will be mine!

Thank You For Your Comments & Responding Help

Hi loves! I just wanted to take a moment and thank each and every one of you for commenting on my blog. I love reading your comments and I try my hardest to respond to each and every one. This past week I've been unable to respond to most comments. I'm not really sure what the problem is. I'll type out a response and press reply to send it, but I either get a message that I'm not allowed to comment or it just doesn't show up at all. I'm wondering if this has happened to anyone else. I don't know how to fix it and I have no idea why it's doing that. I just find it weird that I can respond to some comments, but not all. And to have it say that I'm not allowed to comment even though it's my blog...strange. So if you have any suggestions on how to fix this or if this has happened to you before, please please please help a girl out!! :)

Shop My Stash Intro & Week 1 FOTD

Hi loves! My good friends +Liz Outh of My Pretty Obsessions and +Shalunya TheChronicBeauty of Shalunya and Boyet are doing a wonderful challenge called No Shop November and a series called Shop My Stash. I had already placed an order with Sephora before I heard about the No Shop November challenge so I've already failed at that. But I've decided to not buy anything for the rest of the month!

The Shop My Stash series is what I'm most excited about! Not buying any new products and forcing myself to rediscover the products that I already own is pretty exciting! Going through my makeup collection was pretty fun. I had so many products that I totally forgot I had and I had some that I had never even used before (thank you Ipsy and Birchbox for the never ending samples)!

My Hair Nightmare

Hi loves! I had another post planned for today, but I decided to save that one for another day and write this one instead. I've been wanting to start writing about my journey to natural hair land, but haven't gotten around to. And I think now is the perfect time for me to start.

I'm sad. Really sad. Let me start from the beginning. A year ago I decided that I wanted to transition to wearing my natural hair. I had been getting relaxers for 11 years and my hair was damaged. I so badly wanted to get my hair healthy so that it could start growing again. It was hard, but I was happy to do it. 

Around June my hair began to be too much for me to handle. With the summer heat and humidity my hair would sweat right out and frizz up immediately. I hated it. I'm the girl that has to have silky straight hair so I was putting a lot of heat in it to try to maintain that look. I hated doing that though because it was so damaging to my already damaged chemical treated hair.
My hair hated me.
