Wednesday Wisdom: Just Keep Blooming

WW post


















This seriously should be my life mantra. Wise, wise words. If I’m being completely honest here, I’ve compared myself to others for as long as I can remember; it’s a personal flaw I’ve been “working on” most of my life. It’s hard sometimes to see the successes of others and not think to yourself – “If I had made different decisions, would I have the same successes…..what are they doing that I haven’t done…..why does it seem that my successes never seem to compare to theirs?”

Glam Round-Up #10
















It’s Friday…..yay! It’s been a busy work week, but a great week nonetheless. As I’m coming out of my “blogging hiatus”, I’ve been reevaluating everything about this blog. From what type of content I want to post, how often I want to post, re-branding or redesigning my site and much more. One thing I have decided for sure is that I really enjoy doing these Glam Round-Up posts (or Fabulous Fridays as I used to call them).

The Strength of My Mother



My mother. One day, Mother’s Day, to honor her just doesn’t seem to be enough. What words can I type here that will be eloquent enough and fitting enough to honor her? I see my mother in everything – my strength to get through the toughest of times in life, every time I laugh, every time I look in the mirror and so many other times and things. She is my best friend.

Wednesday Wisdom: Dazed

I realized something recently. I DO NOT have to do it all. I only have to do what makes me happy. I need to stop trying to do too much and get so wrapped up in life that I forget to live and appreciate what I have. Ever heard of that saying “Don’t spend so much time trying to make a living that you forget to live.”  It is so, so true.

Are you a beauty product addict…hoarder? More specifically, do you “hoard” nail polishes like it’s no one’s business? Guess what – so do I. #NoShame people. Seriously though, what is it about nail polishes? Why are they so easy to “collect”? These my friends are questions I’m pretty sure I will continue to ask myself for the foreseeable future.  😉

I thought I’d share my “collection” and obsession with you! Surely I’m not the only #nailpolishaddict  out there, right?

What are some of your favorite polishes?

Happy Halloween! Can you believe October is already coming to an end today and that tomorrow is……the first day of November?! Wow. Although it’s not my it’s not my favorite holiday (that is Christmas!), I really do love Halloween. Taking a trip down memory lane and remembering how fun it was dressing up as a kid and going trick-or-treating in the neighborhood is kind of nostalgic. As a kid I was everything from Snow White to a dead prom queen for Halloween (I liked to keep it interesting). This year I decided not to dress up, although I kind of wish I had as many of my co-workers are ‘rockin’ some freakin’ AWESOME costumes…….
