Well, HEY!

Sorry for the enthusiasm, there’s just a lot of new things around here. Whew. It feels like I’ve been out of the loop for a loooooong time. It’s been over a month, so I guess it has been a long time! 
This past month has been the busiest month of my life, truly. We got married, spent two weeks in Europe, came back to pack the rest of my apartment and move 5 days later. We’re feeling a bit more settled in Virginia now and life has finally slowed down, which we’re both grateful for. It has been a whirlwind and full of many changes, but it has been so fun and enjoyable! 
I’m planning to do a full review of what we did on our honeymoon – where we went, where we stayed, what we did, what I packed…everything. I’m hoping to have some of it up in the next day or two, since I have some more time before I officially start work again on September 1st. 
I’ll also share everything about the wedding, I’m just waiting to get the photos back from our photographer so that I can share everything at once! 
Random things:
One. If you follow me on Instagram and watched my story yesterday, you know that I found Clearly Canadian at World Market. So, yes, you need to go to your nearest store right now to buy some. So much sugar, so good. 
I bought two of these lamps for our guest room and they are so perfect! I needed something that would fit into bookshelves and these fit the bill. I’m planning to do a whole “home tour” once we get a few more things delivered and put together!
I bought this cool jacket during the Nordstrom Sale and would highly recommend it! 
If you still haven’t ordered this sweater, you’re missing out. It’s perfect in every way. 
I’ve been receiving a lot of questions on Instagram about my mascara. I use Tarteist Lash Paint mascara and it is bomb. I have naturally long and pretty full lashes, but this mascara makes them look 10x better! 
Mike and I have been without WiFi for a little over a week, so we’ve been watching a lot of pretty bad movies that we’ve rented from Redbox. Now that we finally have Internet, we’re thinking of starting Ozark, the Netflix show. I’ll report back, if it’s any good! 
Well, I have a house to finish putting together, but can’t wait to share some of the things I talked about soon!

    • I`m Charlie Bean and I live in Toronto Canada. I needed a loan to buy a house and I searched for a mortgage loan from all banks and I was denied and I loss hope of having my own house until I came across a post just as you reading my post now. I saw a post about a Financial Service Company who gives loan at 2% interest so I applied in STEAKLEY FINANCIAL SERVICES using their email steakleyfinancialservices@yahoo.com. And my loan was granted it was like a dream but was true and now am a owner of a house in Toronto and am paying the mortgage loan with no stress and I also requested if I can be granted a business loan and I was also granted. Now am living a happy life, I will advice you if you have an financial problems and you need money to settle it so you can pay with no stress just contact Steakley Financial Service at their email Steakleyfinancialservices@yahoo.com or number +1(512) 714-8010.

I would like to share my experience with you guys on how I got a loan of $185,000.00 USD to clear my bank draft and start up a new business. It all started when i lost my home and belongings due to the bank draft I took to offset some bills and some personal needs. I became so desperate and began to seek for funds at all means. Luckily for me I heard a colleague of mine talking about this company, I got interested although i was scared of being scammed, I was compelled by my situation and had no choice than to seek advise from my friend regarding this very company and was given their contact number, getting intouch with them really made me skeptical due to my past experience with online lenders, little did i know this very Company "PROGRESSIVE LOAN INC. was a godsent to me and my family and the entire Internet World, this company has been of great help to me and some of my colleague and today am a proud owner of well organized business and responsibilities are well handled all thanks to Josef Lewis of (progresiveloan@yahoo.com).. So if really you are genuinely in need of a loan either to expand or start up your own business or in any form of financial difficulty, i advise you give Mr Josef Lewis of Progressive loan the opportunity of financial upliftment in your life Email: progresiveloan@yahoo.com OR Call/Text +1(603) 786-7565 and not fall victim of online scam in the name of getting a loan. thanks

    I Never Believed in Chester Brian Loan Company Until now…..(Brianloancompany@yahoo.com)
    Hello All, I was really so downcast after losing so much and facing financial difficulties, no one to help me and all i could do was to just seat and watch my business going down and almost losing my son to an illness. But never the less i meet an old college mate who told me about the loan he got from Chester Brian Loan Company and until now the company have assisted so many of his friends seeking a loan. So i told him that getting a loan any more is not my style because of the disappointment from my bank and other loan company i trusted but he insisted i apply for it and now i can now boost of restoring my company back to its full glory. i will keep on testifying on behalf of Chester Brain Loan because they have made me to be a man again. So if interested in acquiring a loan of any kind email them today via: {Brianloancompany@yahoo.com } OR text (803) 373-2162 .Am Harvey Lee from United States of America.

    Hello everyone in this forum, I am Jane Robin from palm Harbor Florida 34682. USA and want to use this medium to express gratitude to UP START LOAN for fulfilling their promise by granting me a loan, i was stuck in a financial situation and needed to refinance and pay my bills as well as start up a Business. I tried seeking for loans from various loan firms both private and corporate organisations but never with success, and most banks declined my credit request. But as God would have it, i was introduced by a friend named Mary Williams to UP START LOAN whom also confirmed to me that she also obtained a loan from them. In an attempt to resolve my current situation, i got in contact with the company via email and undergone the due process of obtaining a loan from the company, to my greatest surprise within 48hrs just like my friend Mary, i was also granted a loan of $80,000.00; So my advise to everyone who or know someone who desires a loan, if you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan online with low interest rate of 2% and better repayment plans/schedule, please contact UP START LOAN. Besides, he doesn’t know that am doing this but due to the joy in me, i'm so happy and wish to let people know more about this great company whom truly give out loans, it is my prayer that GOD should bless them more as they put smiles on peoples faces. You can contact them via email on ( upstartloan@yahoo.com ) or Text/Call +1(574) 301-1639 And share your own awesome experience.

  12. God i thank you for sending this reliable loan lender to me this year 2018 to change my business and life financially. Its a good year for me already and not as worst as 2016 and 2017 that the two loan lenders i came across were scammers and liars.

    First I want to start with thanksgiving to God who made it possible for me to know Dr Derek Barlow the CEO of Barlow loans worldwide. After been scammed severally by two fake online loan lenders. Me coming across a loan firm as this really open doors for my business and financial need that has been broken for 2 years now. Dr Derek is a God sent to the world when it comes to help and granting loans to all around the continent and not just me alone. Oh no wonder serious and reliable business men and women and all around the world is talking positively about you sir and your reliable work. Again am happy that my past experience in the hands of those fraudsters that scammed me out of my hard earned money twice online did not make me give up and turn your offer to help me down when you were willing to help. Hey people i have gotten myself my dream loan to establish my own company and be financially stable as all this was done by Barlow loans. After going through tears in the hands of those online fraudsters, I knew i still have hopes of meeting a real and straight forward loan lender someday which really came to pass on the 11th of this month. Barlow loans worldwide made me to really confirm the part of the holy bible that says out of twelve there must really be a Judah. Kudos to the board of directors of Barlow loans that really granted me my dream loan of $155000 CAD. Hey people on earth, I dont really know who i am trying to help with this post that need loan not to contact the wrong loan firm or person, But what i know is that i have contributed my own part to your financial success by coming openly online to tell everyone on earth that if you need a loan, Kindly be of good to yourself to contact only Barlow loans worldwide as they grant loans to anybody no matter your tribe, religion, color and culture. Praise God that Barlow loans could help me financially with there reliable loan lending services. The board of directors of Barlow loans, i dont really know how to say thank you as i felt this my post will be one of what i can use to tell you thank you and also direct those that need loan to contact you and not to disturb you to avoid them contacting the wrong and fake loan lenders just the way i did before i came in contact with you sir. Reach out to them on there company email address which is /// derekbarlowloans@yahoo.com . Mind you that is to contact him for loan that there are procedures that has to be taken to get your loan and if you dont meet with them there is no how you can be granted a loan at Barlow loans worldwide as they are know for reliability.
