Bridal Beauty – SOS Edition!

Over the weekend, we celebrated our engagement party with an I Do BBQ. It was a ton of fun, getting to celebrate with our friends and family. As you can see from the photo above, we had a really fabulous time. Of course, a few days before the party, my skin started to break the…

Sweating for the Wedding

This blog has been really helpful for me to track and share my weight loss and fitness journey. This is an area of my life that I’ve struggled with since high school, and I’ve learned that it’s important to have an outlet to talk about it, and a way to hold yourself accountable.  I’ve been…

My Beauty Routine: Bride on a Budget

I work hard to have good skin, but for the most part, it’s come easily to me. Maybe it’s genes, but if I treat my skin and my body right, my skin shows it. I’ve also been taking care of my skin for a long time, for almost as long as I can remember. I…

Wine and Beer!

Everyone knows that I love beer. In fact, you might say that I am a bit of a snob about it. But, here’s something… I also love wine! But I am definitely not a wine snob. Two Buck Chuck from Trader Joe’s? Sure thing! Let’s face it, I spent my college years (and several of…

Let’s Catch Up

The favorite thing about my last post is that I wrote it on an ordinary Sunday night. The day after Cinco de Drinko, so perhaps still feeling a little rough. Little did I know that the next day, I would receive the biggest surprise of my life. On Monday, May 7, somewhere around 2:00 in…

Read All About It

It’s May, so if you’ve kept up on your New Year’s resolutions, kudos to you. As I’ve mentioned, I don’t believe in them, but I did make some promises to myself to help me be a better me this year. In addition to Weight Watchers and yoga, I also decided to read more. I’ll be…

Anxiety Prime

“Anxiety” and “anxious” are words that get thrown around a lot. Some people are just anxious, others have some form of anxiety disorder. For a lot of us who suffer from some form of anxiety, a common way of coping is to joke about it. At least 5 times a day, I see some type…

Take Care!

Those who know me well, know that self-care is a huge priority for me lately. Those same people know that for me, it was not always a priority. I’m here to tell you how I’ve been able to work it into my life and budget. But mainly, I’m here to convince you that you are…

Snow Day: Sleepless Beauty Style

Ah, a snow day. Something so rare, that we (myself and Andy), make damn sure that we enjoy it! Here’s how a sleepless beauty (on Weight Watchers) spends her snow days: I’d like to tell you that I slept in, but really, I didn’t sleep well consistently all night, so I did stay in bed…

Namaste, February.

It’s comforting to know that it isn’t just Andy and I (and our family) who felt like January was THE LONGEST MONTH EVER. We weren’t sure if it was just us, grieving, and trying to make sense of the loss we suffered. But from the looks of social media, we now know that everyone felt…
