April Updates!

Hi friends! Thank you for visiting my blog 🙂 I really considered quitting this blog. I seem to lack motivation and that is something I mentioned in the past. Now that I’m a freelancer with a more flexible schedule I still seem to put off blogging. It used to be really super fun for me and I would be excited to whip up a blog post. These days I just associate being on the computer, writing, and blogging with WORK. My freelance copywriting and social media management business is going well, I picked up a new client in March and…

Updates Galore!

Hi everyone! I have a few updates to share with you.  First off,  you might notice that this blog looks a bit different. I am so proud of myself, I figured out how to switch my domain host and convert my blog from a WordPress .com to a .org site, allowing me more creative flexibility. I found this super helpful tutorial called “How to Properly Move Your Blog from WordPress.com to WordPress.org” So what do you think of the new look? Do you see places where I can improve? Please let me know in the comments, I’d love some constructive…

Holiday Nails

I love painting my nails. I may not be very good at it but it’s something I enjoy doing. Kind of like snowboarding, I’m not good at it but I like the activity anway! I like how painted nails look, even when I get nail polish all over the place. Since it’s December and officially Christmas time I decided to go for a festive holiday design. I used Avon Nail Art Design Strips in Candy Cane. Like I said before I’m not very good with nails–I realize there are ragged edges and it’s a bit sloppy. From a distance it…

Bridal Body Weigh In 2

It’s time for my weekly weigh-in here on the world wide web! This week did not go as well as last week but I’m not down on myself. Due to my knee giving me trouble I didn’t  exercise as much. Over the weekend I also allowed myself to over indulge on foods like pizza, beer, nachos and I snacked more than I should have this week. I will get back on track with logging  into My Fitness Pal. Also, since I don’t want to cause further pain on my knee I’m going to take a break from Blogilates. I’ll just…

Review: Avon Color Fold Up Palette

I like the Avon Color Fold Up Palette because it is chock full of make-up goodies like eyeshadow, blush and lip gloss. It also comes with dual ended eyeshadow and lip brushes plus a blush brush! The mirror inside the fold-up case is handy for touch-ups. It all comes boxed up and ready for gifting. Since I’m pushing for my Avon business to be completely online I thought it would be fun reward my customers by offering a weekly discount. Each week I will be announcing a new discounted item on my online store. Currently you will recieve 10% off…

Bridal Brain

We officially set a wedding date for August 4, 2013. That means now I officially have a case of “bridal brain”. All I can think about is wedding stuff! Before setting a date I casually browsed wedding mags, made my Pinterest board and went to a couple wedding shows. Now my thoughts are ALL wedding ALL the time! Well, maybe not 100% of the time, more like 90% of the time. I still manage to force myself to focus at work. I’m mostly thinking about the things we need to do as we start this process. The location we chose…
