Five Things I Love Today — Nov. 5th, 2017

Soooo I hate going so long without a blog post, and I’ve been wracking my brain for something enjoyable and let’s face it, easy for me to complete since I’ve been really busy juggling life, this blog, and the new YouTube channel with Justin.

I try to focus on the positive, and when my favorite radio station morning show started a segment called “Tell Me Something Good,” where listeners call in to share some detailed wins in their life, I thought it would be a good type of blog post.

Does it work? Does it not? *shrug* You tell me! Let’s get started.

My New Hair

This might be shocking because 1.) You’ve never seen me with dark hair before, or 2.) you didn’t realize I’ve never been anything but blonde for my entire life.

New hair, DO care! I decided to do something completely out of my comfort zone, and I traveled more than an hour to have it done by a stylist I completely trust who did my hair years ago. My inspiration came from a photo I found on Pinterest, and I finally had the guts to get it done. And I’m glad I did! I’m obsessed. The base brown color is so much darker than I’m used to, but I don’t feel it washes me out, and I love the plum color streaked throughout — especially when I curl it. It’s perfect for fall! What do you think?

Bridal Magazines

This is pretty self-explanatory. I’ve been really loving the act of scouring through the four bridal magazines I’ve been given, dog-earring pages of dress styles and designers I love, funky reception decor ideas, and even those pages giving tips that make me say “duh!” The big event is a ways out, but having more of a direction early is a good thing so I’m not entirely clueless when I go to all of my appointments.

Kitty Snuggles

The photo is from yesterday, but my cat Callie has an adorable habit of snuggling next to me on the bed. It usually happens at night because I have to get up for work in the mornings, but on weekends when I can be as lazy as I want she gets super cuddly. I tend to lay on my side toward the edge of the bed, and she will come and plop down in between, twisting onto her side too. She’ll let me slide my arm under and around her, so I’m spooning her, and she’ll lay her head down. It’s the cutest thing ever, and I cherish those moments when I can bury my face in her fur.

Pets, I tell ya. They’re the best thing ever!

Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara by Essence

Eyelashes for days! Yes, days.

A friend of mine posted about this mascara after she picked it up on the recommendation of a beauty website, so I decided to try it as well, and I’ve been spreading the word about it too. Lash Princess False Lash Effect by Essence, which I grabbed at Ulta for $5, is the absolutely best drug store mascara I’ve ever used, and I’m going to even go as far as saying it rivals some of my $24 tubes! Lash Princess doesn’t clump, but it creates incredible volume and length! I’ve fallen in love with this product.

Stranger Things 2

The second season of this popular Netflix series was released last week, and if you haven’t binged-watched this already, what’s wrong with you? Kidding. Although this season wasn’t as thrilling as the first, it still dished out plenty of surprises. I’m already chomping at the bit for season 3.

I gotta say though, seeing Sean Astin make out with Winona Ryder is just plain weird. I’m not sure it’s something I’ll ever get over.


So those are the things I’m currently loving! What are YOU diggin’ right now?
