You are Not a Failure
Give me ALL the Things!
As I habitually move through my nightly bedtime ritual: remove makeup, wash face, serums, and moisturizers, all of a sudden I am left with my bare reflection starring back at me. A reflection that quite honestly I’m harder on than I should be. Nevertheless, over the years, I have seen myself change. Albeit sometimes overnight, […]
Kirkland’s Home Decor
It’s no surprise I call Nordstrom the Mothership. In Texas, the closest Nordy’s was about a 2 hour drive if traffic was decent. (Have I mentioned I can’t stand Dallas?) They have since built one closer since I moved. Nonetheless, it was a real treat anytime I got to go and would basically have a […]
Random Amazon Finds
I am on a slight farmhouse style kick. If you haven’t seen it, check out my half bathroom makeover! I don’t know if it is because I miss Texas or that is makes me feel cozy and I am CRAVING fall but I am loving it. We don’t have Kirkland’s up here in the PNW. […]
Modern Etiquette: Lesson 2 – Let’s Get Physical
Three things I can’t seem to get enough of: Pink in pretty much any shade, shopping, and Amazon Prime. What is it with shipping? Shipping will be $6 dollars but if I spend $ 87.24 more it will be free. So what do I do? Spending $145.24 more and get the free shipping! Yeah, I […]
Modern Etiquette: Lesson 1
I really seemed to throw the front door wide open with our first etiquette lesson. And maybe not even just the front door. All the doors. The back door. The garage door. Hell, even all the windows just wide open, airing out the truth that needs to be heard. If you missed it, check out […]
Why We Eloped
Having grown up in the south, I am not a stranger to etiquette. In fact, I even had to participate in cotillion (a sort of finishing school). Those not from the south may find this hard to believe but this class was almost a right of passage that ladies AND gentlemen took. (At least, that’s […]
All About That Skincare Life
I guess I should start off by saying we didn’t really elope. The definition of eloping is “running away secretly in order to get married” and we were definitely not secretive about it. It was more a wedding that was just the two of us and no one else. I know some people are shocked […]
Cheers to New Years!
Skincare has always been a part of my life. I grew up in a southern house that made it very clear, eye cream was just as important as our nightly prayers. However, my knowledge and want for great skin eventually succumbed to the lethargic college years. You know– the never washing or even thinking about […]
But First, Cocktails!
Helloooooooooooooooo 2018!!!! There are few things I love more than a new year. It is so refreshing to think about putting your best foot forward and trying to better not just yourself but your life as a whole. I have a good feeling about 2018. As a general goal setter by nature and someone completely […]
Wait, isn’t the quote, “but first, coffee”? *shrug* COCKTAILS ALL AROUND!!!!!! If you know me outside of this blog life, you know that I have a deep love coffee any time of day. And clearly, according to my blog name, I love a good happy hour. And happy hours that involve not just insane amounts […]
