If you haven’t already, go check out my tumblr!

I’m in a really weird place in my life right now,

including with blogging.

It’s become something I feel like I “have” to do,

which has made it not fun.

However, I have been updating my tumblr more lately.

Also, I will be  posting here a few times a week still, but nothing as regular/daily as I would like.

I will probably be doing a few more personal blog posts on here too in the next few weeks.

So stay tuned ūüôā


Tuesday Tresses: Kicks’ New Haircut

21 Jun

Kicks was a few months over due for a grooming appointment. ¬†However, last Tuesday I took him to get groomed and he came out looking much better, thinner, and younger! ¬†His hair was getting way too long in the front and he could not see. ¬†Brian loved saying he looked like a mountain man. ¬†His hair was also tangled because he refuses to let me brush it for more than 2.5 seconds. ¬†I had the groomers give him the typical Yorkie facial trimming and framing while cutting him about 1″-1.5″ on the body. ¬†I think it is all a really ¬†good length for him and he looks so adorable. ¬†He even had a date with another small female dog the other day, and I think he was into him ;).

Furry Friend Tag

2 Apr

I saw someone on youtube do this tag, and because I am obsessed with my dogs I had to do this tag. ¬†I have no shame when I say that my 2 dogs are my best friends :), they’re my boys. ¬†I usually don’t talk much about my life on this blog, because I want to keep it mainly to fashion and beauty, but every now and again if something special happens, or my dogs are being especially awesome that day I would love to come blog about it and share it with you all!

1)What is your pets name? How did you name them?
Boo & Kicks.  When Brian got Boo from the shelter he was already named that.  Kicks we named because of his obsession with shoes and we thought it was cute!

2) What kind of pet is it and what breed?
They’re both dogs. ¬†Boo is a Golden Retriver and Kicks is a Yorkshire Terrier.
3) How long have you had your pet friend?
Boo is Brian’s dog and he has had him since he was 2, so about 6 or 7 years. ¬†Brian and I have lived together for almost year, so I’ve had Boo for almost a year too. ¬† I’ve had kicks for 3 months now.
4) How did you get your pet?
Brian got Boo from a non-profit, animal organization, like a shelter.  We got Kicks from a breeder.
5) How old is your pet?
Boo is 7 or 8 (he will be 8 or 9 on April 1st) and Kicks is 5 months old.
6) What are some quirky things about your pets personality?
Boo is a huge goof, he is older but has the personality and activity of a puppy. ¬†He is the most loving dog you will ever meet and will play tug o’ war for hours with you. ¬†As far as being quirky, Boo loves humping (probably TMI, I know), he also has the ability to smile (and does so frequently!), and is a world-champ at chasing his tail. ¬† Kicks loves cuddling up against shoes and sleeping on them, cuddling is probably is favorite activity, he loves wearing little t-shirts, and thinks he is King of the world (I’ve tried correcting him, but he refuses to listen!). ¬†Other than that he is your typical puppy!
7) What does your relationship with your pet mean to you?
It means everything, I have already stated that they are my BFF’s; ¬†I also call them my PICs (Partners-in-Crime). ¬†However, they’re more to me than that I spend most of my day playing with them, cuddling them, and just taking care of them. ¬†They really are like my kids, especially since I don’t think I want actual children.
8) What are some of your favorite past times with your pet?
I’ve only had Kicks for 3 months so we haven’t had time to travel the world, yet. ¬†However, we’ve taken him to a few dog parks and to a river, which is always fun. ¬†At our house he is very dominant and barks at anyone he sees, letting them know he owns the place. ¬†However, at dog parks he is often right in between my legs, scared out of his mind, but he loves running around with Boo. ¬†We’ve also taken him to all of our parents house. ¬†My favorite activity with Kicks ¬†though is cuddling because no matter what he always has to fall asleep on top of me, which melts my heart to pieces. ¬†I love taking Boo to parks the most because he is so social that he loves running around with all the dogs, playing fetch, rolling around on the ground, running in the water, and chasing geese. ¬†It can make even the most depressed person happy to watch Boo at ¬†a park because that is when he is his happiest.
9) What are nicknames that you call your pet?
I call Boo, Boo-Boo almost all of the time. ¬†I usually call Kicks my Love Bug. ¬†Other than that I’ll call them both monsters (they love causing trouble!) and other random names I come up with spur of the moment!

Do you have any pets?  I would love for you to do this tag, either in the comments below, or on your blog, and link it so I can see your cute pets!

March Ins and Outs

30 Mar


  • Etsy – Until this month I have never really bought anything from Etsy, or even looked on the site for more than a few seconds. ¬†This month, however, I realized how dangerous it is. ¬†While I have acquired some very cute items from there, my wallet is hating this addiction! ¬†If you haven’t already (which I’m sure you have), go there now and check it out! ¬†Any girlie thing you can think of – you can find it on there! ¬†However, if you don’t want your bank account to hate you, stay far away!


  • One month of school left – This week was my first week back from Spring Break, and boy was it a rough one. ¬†However, I have to remind myself that I have exactly 20 class days left!! ¬†I can do this, I can do this, I can do this. ¬†I’m hoping if I say this enough times then it’ll increase my motivation!


  • Shuttung Down My Youtube – I shut down my youtube channel this month, not like it was a big deal because I only had 100 subscribers lol. ¬†However, it feels so liberating! ¬†While blogging takes up just as much time (more time, in my opinion) I like it sooo much better, and you don’t get a much hate! ¬†I didn’t include this, but blogging is totally “in”!


  • Papers moved back – One good thing happened this week: ¬†I got an 12 page paper that was supposed to be due this Friday, moved back until April 12th. ¬†It is ¬†going to be an easy paper, but this week I’ve also had two midterms to deal with, so it’s nice to push it back just a bit and have one less thing on my plate!


  • Spring and Day Lights Saving – ¬†There are many reasons why I despise winter. ¬†Thankfully the harsh, brutal months are over (well, almost.. see below). ¬†I love spring because we sprung our clocks forward and it no longer gets dark at about 3P (okay, I’m¬†exaggerating¬†just a wee bit). ¬†I love the warm weather, having a nice tan, spending time outside, and spring fashion! ¬†What is there not to love about spring?


  • Fashion – see below (makeup).


  • Atmosphere Selling Out – I saw Atmosphere at a music festival over summer. ¬†Since then, I have been dieing to go to a concert strictly for him. ¬†I have been checking constantly to see when he is coming back. ¬†Somehow I completely missed his Family Tour. ¬†Turns out, he is coming during May, but tickets sold out in a week. ¬†I have checked online and prices are ridiculous, asking $80-$200 ¬†(when it originally sold for $25). ¬†I am still crossing my fingers and hoping for a miracle as he is my favorite artist.


  • OBGYN ¬†– Do I really need to say anymore? ¬†I had to go to my yearly gyno appointment, and that was about 1 too many times for my life. ¬†I think that must be where hell is.


  • Radio – I hate the radio for the simple fact that they play the same 10 songs on repeat. ¬†Lame! ¬†I have bought about 6 ipod transmitters, all which have broke. ¬†I refused to spend another $80 on one, so I found one on ebay that works just as good as the $80 and it was only $20. ¬†Radio is so out… my ipod is so in!


  • Death – I don’t think this should ever be “in”. ¬†My grandfather passed away this month, in an unexpected way, which was really hard and sad for all. ¬†I don’t want to dwell on it too much, but it is always sad seeing someone pass, no matter who it is.


  • Wind – It has been sooooooooo (was that enough zeros to get my point across) ridiculously windy here. ¬†I live sorta in the middle of nowhere to begin with on a hill so there’s not much blocking the wind at my place and it is usually windy to begin with. ¬†However, ¬†it has been so windy everywhere I have gone. ¬†It is¬†honestly¬†just pissing me off at this point! ¬†No, I do not want to eat all my hair, thankyouverymuch!


  • Makeup – (see above – fashion)


3 Mar

I have been severly lacking on posts lately.  My camera broke, which limits a lot of posts that I had been wanting to do.  However, I do have many many big plans for this blog, including more fashion posts.  I am working on planning it all out so I will be updating regularly!

I have finished my 30 for ¬†30 challenge. ¬†I did succeed in trying 30 new things, but it took me over a month because I did not wear make up every day. ¬†It was tough, and annoying ¬†at times, but it helped me to discover some really great products I already own! ¬†Also it made me realize how many makeup items I already have, especially eyeshadow, and will hopefully help me to limit future purchases. ¬†While I did finish the challenge I still have some unused make up items I haven’t tried. ¬†I am trying to think up a fun challenge, or the like, ¬†to do with these items. ¬†However, I did fail at not buying anything during this time. ¬†I bought a bunch of make up items, and recorded a haul, but other than the recent MAC collection, I have been very good!

I am thinking about doing a ¬†project 10 pan, but I honestly don’t think I have the willpower. ¬†I do need some kind of help though to stop buying make up. ¬†So well see where that goes.

And finally be on the look out for upcoming posts including

  • Items 10-20 of 30 for 30
  • Items 20-30 of 30 for 30
  • Favorite spring nail polishes, beauty trends, and fashion trends
  • Heels and wedges wishlist
  • A new beauty challenge
  • and more! (hopefully some reviews!)

If you have any input on posts you would like to see, or how to improve this blog, please let me know as I am always looking for feedback and how to make this blog better for you guys! Enjoy!
