What has been really going on in my life

Never thought you'd see me again, did you? Well here I am. I'm back. Among other choices in my life I've been reflecting on why I started a blog to begin with. It's been well over a year since I've sat down to write a blog post on a blog that I used to really enjoy. And don't get me wrong, I still love the fact that I have a platform where I can sit down and spend time discussing and looking at frivolous items that at one point in my life I truly enjoyed.

Things have taken a turn in the past couple of years. I've found myself 75% less happier than I used to be. I've given up, or lost hope on so many parts of my life that I'm starting to feel like a completely different person than who I was one, two, or even five years ago. So what happened? How am I living life? And what stopped me from pursuing a hobby that I once enjoyed so much?

February Favorites

March is officially here and it came in with a bang this morning when I woke up to snow all over my car. Ugh. But through and through I'm glad that February has come to a close. It was a day longer this year and there have been some pretty beautiful Saturdays recently, too (we're talkin' high 50's)

Here are a few things I've loved this month

Update: Where the heck have I been?

So it's been a hot minute since I've been able to get on here and do anything, but February has been a bit busy!

The first week of February I flew (for the first time EVER) to Dallas for work That meant catching up and getting back to my normal routine once I got back home.
Since I've been home I've started Insanity Max:30, which my hubs got me for my birthday back in December, and I'm currently in my 3rd week. I love that the videos are only 30 minutes long each, so they're perfect to do during my lunch break. I'm familiar with Insanity (I've done that a few times) and I'm a big fan of Sean T.

I've also been busy creating meal plans for a few friends of mine. As you may know, I'm crazy about cooking; it's really all I ever think about! Since I eat mostly vegetarian/vegan and keep a pretty strict workout routine, it's not uncommon for me to attract people who want to know how to live a healthier lifestyle. I've only created a few so far, but it's really fun for me to put recipes together that I've enjoyed and I can suggest others to try.

Choppin' Locks:
Oh, and this happened! :') After an hour and a half at the salon, and 10" cut from my head I feel like a new woman. I haven't had hair this short in a few years and I forgot how nice it feels to only use 1 pump of shampoo. :P

Winter has officially hit Southeast Michigan so there's that. I'm tucked inside today sipping a hot cup of coffee and trying to recover from literally almost breaking my back shoveling all the snow in our driveway yesterday. 

It was nice to catch up! I'll be back on track updating another post this afternoon.

2015 Favorites

Beware! Long post ahead.... enter at your own risk. 

I hope I'm not too late on the bandwagon with this, but 2015 was a whirlwind of amazing products. It seems as though every company was coming out with a new palette to entice our makeup junkie minds. To top it all off, there were a lot of collaborative palettes too, so even if the new Urban Decay palette didn't sweep you off your feet, your love for Gwen Stefani did and was therefore justified. 

Being a makeup junkie myself, I gave into a lot of splurges and entice throughout 2015 and I've come up with a list of my favorite products from each category.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year! 2016 is in full swing and is already off to a great start... meaning I'm still enjoying every second of this 4 day weekend.

I was happy to ring in the new year with some great friends and family. We failed to watch the ball drop in Times Square because we were too enthralled playing Cards Against Humanity. Oh, and when you start drinking at 8:30, things can get out of hand a little early. Oops

Birthday & Christmas 2015

Christmas has come and gone and NYE is quickly approaching. We had a green Christmas, which was a-ok in my opinion, but it poured rain on my birthday, which wasn't so nice. I'm beginning to plan my epic feast for new years and am gearing up to accept my resolution. Everybody must have one; that's just the way it is.
