I’m Officially a Home Owner Part II

After months of renovating and moving in, this place is starting to look like my home! I’m not completely finished, mainly in the office and bedroom. For the most part, though, everything’s looking great! Still need to get some curtains for a couple of the rooms and other decor to make it feel more home-y. I can’t wait until it’s warmer so we can do the outside stuff, though! I want a fire pit, that’s for sure.

Neutrogena Naturals Fresh Cleansing + Makeup Remover Review

Okay, I’m terrible about remembering to take all my make up off, especially before going to bed. I saw this on the shelf and thought I’d give it a go. I’ve had this a few weeks now and I’ve been much more diligent. For one, I can even use this to take waterproof eye make up off. That is a feat. I like that I can use this on my whole face and doesn’t bother my eyes at all. I have dry skin, so I’m pretty particular on cleansers. I don’t like that tight feeling that some cleansers give me.



Overall, I’d give it an 8/10. I’m hoping this lasts a while, I’ll be sure to update this when I can if anything changes.

Valentine’s Day ’15

Happy Valentines Day to my best friend and boyfriend, Tyler. You’ve been one of my closest friends since high school (so glad we sat next to each other in multimedia!) and have been a consistent rock in my life. I’m so grateful that we can finally put all the years (almost a decade, in fact) of our obvious and undeniable chemistry into a relationship. These past 6 months with you have been amazing and I’m so happy! You’re the best boyfriend and truly my better half. I love you more than words can express.


Birthday Celebration

I turned 24 last Wednesday. That sound so much older than how I feel. I had a lovely, relaxing night with Tyler on my actual birthday. The weather let up and we went out for sushi at my favorite restaurant. I held off the big celebration until Saturday night. My friends and I took a party bus / limo out on the town and ended up at Berlin for the night. It was a blast! I loved playing whatever music we wanted in the limo and then just BYOBing it. And who doesn’t love getting all dressed up? We weren’t out too late, though. I think we wore ourselves out fast. Too fun and I can’t wait until next time we get to all go out!
