First things first... I am not the girl that is going out purchasing a new shirt, having weekly manicures, or goin' and gettin' my hair did. I don't really have that free time and I feel a bit guilty doing something for myself when I have those little people and my sweet guy to care for (and then there is the dog... he needs attention too). So when it comes to me, I have a wish list or a mental dream board. It is filled with pretty things, updates that I want to do in the house, cute outfits (ya dig?). With the holidays quickly approaching, I have been thinking about little things that I have been eyeing for a looooooooong time!
This past week, I was looking at Snapchat and trying to add a filter to a picture to make me look more life like. Point is, there is not a filter that would lighten my hair and make me look like I just went to a salon. I thought to myself:
Self: you look a mess
Then I said to myself... well, you do have a broken leg and it is not like you are seeing a lot of people (which I have, oh... so many visitors)!
Self said: you are right, there is no time to waste, I need to take care of this ASAP and I cannot go to the hair place and fix the situation, so I ordered hair dye on the Amazon.
It is a foam and super easy to apply. So this morning the look has gone from...
I do not think you can tell the BIG change that I see, but I likes it a lot! Ignore the fact that I did not read the directions and forgot to put on the gloves when applying the foam so my fingertips are a bit sensitive... but I am sure that will go away! My hair looks a bit brighter and the conditioner that is given really makes your hair soft! So, I guess I really wanted this and I just decided I must have it! Thankful Amazon can deliver so quickly!!
Y'all, I any of the tens of readers out there follow me on social media you know that my momma has been like a tiny force that has redecorated everything in my home! It has only taken 10 years, but my house is finally feeling like a home with a look that I like! Grays and golds, a cottagey look, and pictures on the walls! One of the things that my mom/ interior decorator has done has made curtains and hung them in my kitchen and in the kids rooms! Kid you not, the curtains really pull a room together! I love the look and the pop of color/ prints! Soon, my decorator will move on to her own home and begin her Christmas décor and I will be here thinking about what to do next and I am thinking I want to do a some panels in my bedroom. I love BLUE, so I want to get new bedding and I am thinking some blue print panels would be lovely. These are my inspirations...
I have already shared my new t.v. obsession and how I am now waiting with the rest of the Outlander lovers for the new episodes to come out each week! #WhompWhomp
I had mentioned that I want to start reading the books...
there are a few! Ha! Freetime (not so much)! If I could just forgo sleep, maybe I could get them all read! Ha!!
I have a few girlfriends that are in deep with Lip Sense! You heard bouts it??
Anyways, it is the lipstick that you apply and it stays on....and on... and on..... and then it is time for bed and your lip color still looks AMAZE.
I am a believer. I have watched their videos, checked out all of their colors, and I want to order a few colors... specifically Blu Red! I die! Isn't it so pretty? I can just see this as a great holiday red color!
I want it... but do I neeeeeeed it?? Maybe so??
I was looking on my Insta feed a bit ago and was eyeing these shoes. I love the black and the gray options! I am really in need of some new tenneys (do you call athletic shoes tenneys... tennis shoes, running shoes (I would not obvi be calling my tenneys running shoes because of the broke leg and my not so colorful running history). I digress. Seriously though, Skechers, I guess it ain't just for kids! I want these.... and I think I needs a pair!
I know what y'all are thinking, Caryn... my friend, ya look like you did in high school. Your skin looks so healthy, like for reals ya look 17!
(and then I woke up and looked in the mirror and realized I look old and my skin looks sad)! I do not do facials, and I am terrible at washing my face. I have a few friends that have such AMAZE skin and they swear by Rodan Fields.... ya heard of it? It is like supposed to be butta for yo face. They also have the Lash Boost! When I look at the results people share of their lashes and how they grow I think how I want that too!!! I have been so focused on my health (getting it back on track getting healthy from the inside out), and now I have just been checking out things to the the outside caught up with the inside progress (sounds strange, I am sure). Anyways, I am a fan, and am thinking that this could be a game changer!! Thoughts?? Are any of you Rodies??
Here is the thing! I am still wearing clothes that are eons old, like the shirt I have on right now was purchased in 2012! Lame, I know! I already told ya I hate to buy for myself. My momma sees that and still takes care of me and time to time brings me little happys (aren't mommas the best?)!
There is a local store, and it caters to the college girl... younger woman. I often look at their clothes and think, if I was only 18 and loved to wear clothes that ride up my front and back cracks (I would be set), but every so often they will surprise me with a great jacket or top, or this cute holiday tee... it has Santa on it and around it says So Tell Me What You Want, What Ya Really Really Want
HA! It cracked me up and I love that song (it is from my era) and I love Santa, so hello.... I feel like I should have it!! Tis the season!!
Tell me, am I alone feeling like this?? If you are a parent and are wanting something for yourself do you go and splurge or just wait it out and then decide to buy dinner for your family instead?
Have a happy day (can ya believe it 4 days in a row... this is a record for me for sure)! #BringingTheBlogBack (hashtag to be sung as if you were singing the Justin Timberlake ditty I'm Bringing Sexy Back)
