Life Update, Outfit of the Day, & Look of the Day!

Hey, everyone! After a week or so, I’m finally back! I have some stuff to update ya’ll about today, but first I wanna say something before we get into all of that. I just wanna say thank you to those of you who were so sweet, supportive, and patient last week after I had to put my dog down. It would have been a really tough thing to do anyway, and it just made it harder knowing that I practically grew up with her, so I was really distraught over the whole situation. Even though I haven’t posted anything for a few days, I did get on and check my blog updates and it made me feel so loved seeing all of the kind words you had to say! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: WordPress is the most supportive online community I’ve ever been a part of and I absolutely love that! I couldn’t have gotten through it without your support, so I defiantly just needed to take some time to tell ya’ll how much I appreciated it (:

Anyway, on to everything else that’s been goin’ on! I’ve had the craziest weekend I’ve had in quite some time… I finally got all moved in to my new apartment! We started moving in on Friday and continued to move and clean until Sunday night and now Cody and I are finally settled into our new place! I haven’t taken any pictures yet, but I promise I will! I’m back home from today until Saturday night for my mom’s birthday week, so I’m thinkin’ Sunday once I get back will be a good day to get my apartment post up, be on the lookout for that (:

ImageAmong all of the craziness, I did manage to get one picture! Even though it’s dark and blurry haha This picture was taken in our little living room on our couch. The apartment is teeny tiny, but it’s newly renovated, has gorgeous wood floors, new carpet, and new cabinets. It might not be much to most other people, but it’s ours and we love it. We already feel so at home in it. Can’t wait to share the rest with ya! If I have time, I’ve even been thinking about doing a video post for ya instead! I think that’d probably be the best way anyway to show ya’ll our new place!

Now, with all the new apartment talk outta the way, I have an Outfit of the Day for ya! I haven’t posted anything for about a week, let alone anything actually along the lines of fashion and beauty, so today is a good day to start that up again!

White Skinny Jeans: Hollister

Jean Jacket: Macy’s

Black Tank Top: Kohl’s (it’s actually a workout tank top!)

Woven Brown Belt: Macy’s

Gold Studded Sandals: Forever 21

I also have on a really gorgeous necklace (I shoulda taken a close up for ya) that mom got me as a going away present. It has two white sapphires in the shape of hearts and around it and it says “A mother’s love has no end.” I cried when she gave it to me haha It’s so pretty, I’ve worn it every day since I got it! I believe she got it at Kohl’s at the jewelry counter. And also, just a side note, if you like those jeans and are planning on getting any from Hollister, make sure you go waaaaay up in size! I’m a size 2 or 3 and these jeans are a size 7 or 8! Big difference!

I also tried a little somethin’ new out today, check it out!

I’ve always, always, always been a fan of colorful eyeliner, so I just recently purchased this really gorgeous one! This is the Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in Rocky Mountain Green, it’s this really gorgeous emerald color that has some light shimmer to it. It reflects light beautifully. I also bought a really pretty pale blue color, but I wanted to give this color a go first because I thought it would work best with my eye color. This is the first time I’ve used this product, so I’m not sure if there’s gonna be any smudging or fading that’s gonna go on, so I brought the pencil with me to work for touch-ups throughout the day if need be. I’ll have a product review up on these as soon as I test them out enough (: These eye pencils are available wherever Nyx products are sold and I purchased mine at Ulta for under $5 each! I also finally jumped ship and joined the so many ladies that are tryin’ out the L’Oreal TrueMatch Foundation! Be on the lookout for that makeup review to pop up here soon as well (:

So this post was a little crazy, I had so many different topics to over with ya’ll since it’s been so long! I really hope you enjoyed this post. Comment below with any apartment decor suggestions, comments about the Nyx Jumbo Pencil if you’ve used one yourself, questions, or just to say hey! Don’t forget to like this post and follow my blog for more beauty/fashion/lifestyle related posts like this one (: I’ve also been nominated for another award, so I’ll have that post up here soon! As always, thanks for hanging out with me for a little bit today and it’s so good to be back! I’ve missed you guys!

XOXO, Megan ❤

Life Update!

So, today, I have some really sad news to share with you all. My beloved German Shepard, Gypsy, had to be put down on Monday. She was 18 years old, so I practically grew up with her. She’d been suffering from pretty bad arthritis for quite a while, but she was always still happy. This past weekend though, you could just tell that she was suffering now, she wasn’t happy anymore. It’s so heartbreaking, but I think it makes it a whole lot easier to take because I’m really comforted by that fact that she’s not hurting anymore. It’s really, really tough to lose a dog, especially one that was your first best friend and one you grew up with, but all dogs go to heaven, right? ❤

ImageI just wanted to let ya’ll know why I haven’t posted much this week and probably won’t until next week. I haven’t been myself, so I figured it was a better idea to just wait a little while instead of posting a bunch of half-ass blog posts where I’m clearly depressed in them. haha It was already a chaotic week anyway because on Saturday I move into my new apartment, so this is just added stress and anxiety to me.

On a lighter note, I do wanna get your opinion on something real quick…. I have been playing around with the idea of doing some videos on here for ya and I wanted to see if any of you would like that! I feel like if I started uploading some video blogs instead of just writing, you guys would be able to get to know the real me a little bit better. I’ll have to go out and buy a webcam or a video camera first, which isn’t a problem at all, I just figured I’d check with you first and see if any of you would watch! So defiantly let me know your thoughts (and any tips you have on that) down below!

Anyway, I just want to thank ya’ll in advance for being so patient with me this week. Some of you probably think I’m half past insane because I’m grieving this much over a dog, but I know my fellow pet owners out there will understand. Keep in mind, Gypsy was a dog I grew up with, so she wasn’t just a dog to me, She was one of my best friends. So thank you for your patience and support, ya’ll are the absolute greatest!

XOXO, Megan ❤

 

 

 

 

Friday Chit Chat (:

Happy Friday, Everyone! I can’t even begin to tell ya’ll how amazing the weather is here in central Illinois! It’s honestly a little pathetic how happy I am about weather. Hope you guys are having awesome weather too, wherever you are! I took today and this whole weekend off from work to enjoy Easter with my friends and family, so today my boyfriend, Cody, and I just hung around the house and, of course, got outside to enjoy this sunniness! Today’s post isn’t gonna be anything too crazy, I just wanted to share a little bit of my life with ya’ll (: Enjoy!

There’s not much else that I enjoy more than waking up and eating breakfast outside on the patio while watching these two play ball in the yard! Little Grace runs so fast it looks like she’s flying. She’s like Super Dog! Ball is her favorite thing to play and she was absolutely lovin‘ this weather… all the animal were! Cuddles, the cat, is sunbathing behind me haha

After Gracie recovered from playing ball, we took these two fuzz-balls for a walk around the park. Lacie, the little black one, stopped to lick every single person we passed by. Luckily, we live in a neighborhood that loves dogs, so that wasn’t a problem! She was on cloud nine for sure!

While all the animals were sleeping from their exciting morning playin’ around in the sun, we got to cooking! We were following some recipe that we had just pulled up on the Internet and, as we were throwing the ingredients in the bowl, we realized that the recipe made 6 dozen cookies hahah So now we have about 70 cookies and we’re not exactly sure what to do with them all! It took us all afternoon, but they do actually taste really good! Plus, they’re Easter colors!

While Cody was trying to finish homework, I was being my typical annoying self and bugging him (: And, if you’re wondering why Cody has a different shirt on in every single picture, it’s because he spills stuff on himself constantly. Yes, I’m dating a 5 year old. haha

So, that’s what most of my weekends off consist of! While I looove my work and my clients are the greatest people ever, sometimes I just need a few days off to recharge my battery, relax, and have fun. Today was perfect! Hope ya’ll enjoyed, talk to ya tomorrow! Have a great Friday!

XOXO, Megan (:
