As this deployment is nearing the end, I’m beginning to realize that the little details that I would normally take for granted are what make the distance and stress totally doable. For my fifth deployment lesson in this 9-month deployment, I’ve learned that the little details are what make this deployment doable.
So far, since June of 2015, I’ve been enjoying the ipsy bags every month. And this month is not any different. The theme fit for Valentine’s Day and there were a couple products that fit that as well! *This post contains affiliate links, marked with *. If you buy the product from my link, I […]
Last week, I was scrolling through Pinterest, looking at love quotes cause I was feeling a little lovey-dovey. I came across the quote “Relationships are always stronger when you are best friends first, and a couple second.” I’ve read this quote countless times, and always thought “well yeah, obviously.” But then I had a major […]
Last week, I wasn’t able to make a post and I felt so bad about it. But it’s midterms and I was glued to studying and getting homework done like no one’s business. But now that it’s finally starting to slow down, I thought I would give some hints and tricks on how to rock […]
With the holidays officially passing us, D is not having a great time honestly. It’s hard to get him to talk sometimes and he is occasionally disinterested in what’s happening over here, which definitely upsets me. But we’re working through it, like all other things we’re experiencing! Which brings us to the fourth deployment lesson, […]
For the ipsy January 2016 bag, I had a little snafu with shipping due to me moving at the beginning of the month (the bag got lost!), but ipsy was so helpful and got me a bag super quick! And I love the products in this month’s bag! *This post contains affiliate links, marked with […]
When thigh gaps grew in popularity, I remember all my friends talking about how much they wanted a thigh gap. Because it was “cute,” or it “meant they were skinny,” or then they would “have the perfect body.” And it broke my heart hearing my friends talk about their bodies this way. In high school, […]
For December’s glam bag, I really enjoyed it and am totally pumped for my next bag! The whole theme behind it was an adorable idea and I really enjoyed the products from this bag. *This post contains affiliate links, marked with *. If you buy the product from my link, I earn a percentage of […]
Last week, D hit the halfway mark of his deployment. And looking forward, there’s still 150+ days left and it’s ominous to think about. But I’m trying to think positive, view the cup half full, because we’re halfway there.
In case you haven’t noticed, we just had a bunch of holidays fly by. And with D deployed, they were hard, which I suppose was a given, but they were so much harder than I expected and really made my holidays less shiny and bright.. Which brings my third deployment lesson learned. That holidays are […]
This post is about ipsy’s November 2015 Glam Bag. I know, I know, it’s super late, but like I said, December has been an insane month for me and one of the products took me forever to figure out how to use it properly (woops). But thank you everyone for reading, and let’s get started! […]
