Video: August Julep Mystery Box Reveal

I purchased this month’s Julep Maven August Mystery box, take a look at what came inside! I love most of the items that came in, I’m considering trading a couple items and possibly holding on to a couple to give as gifts later. The thing about mystery boxes is you really don’t know what might come in so it’s a gamble. This is only my second time ordering a mystery box. If you would like to be a Juelp Maven too click the image below! It is an affiliate link so I will receive a small compensation if you decide…

It’s August — Hooray!

Usually on Friday I try to share a few blog posts I’m really into but as I mentioned last Friday I’ve been occupied by books (yay) and haven’t browsed many blogs this week. I just finished reading Honolulu by Alan Brennert and I really liked that story, I could not put the book down. My favorite genre is historical fiction and this really satisfied me. I can’t wait to read more of his books like Moloka’i. I’m now reading The Land of Steady Habits by Ted Thompson. It’s a quick read about a retirement ready man who struggles with being happy or…

Review: Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes

One of my friends recently held an online Facebook Younique party. This is very similar to a Mary Kay or Avon party, only it was held via Facebook! I thought the consultant did a great job being entertaining and she kept posting photos of this amazing mascara that made eyelashes look incredibly long and thick. So after a while of seeing these photos pop up in my feed I caved and made a purchase. The Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes arrived in a beautiful case, it looks like a sunglasses case. Inside I found instructions, a tube of transplanting gel,…

Garden Update

Our tomato plants are HUGE. It’s like a tomato forest now! You can even spot little green tomatoes, soon we’ll have more tomatoes than we can handle. Unfortunately only one bell pepper plant survived and it is dwarfed by the tomato plants. Our potatoes on the other hand are doing great, we spotted little spuds and covered them up with more dirt. I also planted pumpkin seeds about two weeks ago and sprouts are now visible. We started with four sprouts but some animal ate two! I did put two seeds in each so hopefully the other seeds sprout, or I can…

Dreams and Lack of Sleep

Lately, in the past four months this same type of dream keeps recurring. It’s me needing to go back to middle school, high school, or college because I obtained my degree but did not fulfill all the credits, so my diploma doesn’t exactly “count” until I complete the credits. This dream did not come to me last night  because I could not fall asleep, different thoughts raced through my mind and none of my usual “go to sleep” methods worked. I fell asleep well past 4 a.m. so when sleep did come, my mind didn’t settle into dream mode. So…
