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! 


  1. WELCOME BACK! I"ve loved keeping up with you over Instagram - but can't wait to see all of your travel/wedding/honeymoon/moving updates!!!!

  2. Yay! We missed you! I know I already messaged you on Instagram, but you brought a whole wave of excitement to my life regarding Clearly Canadian. Those were a staple of my youth and I can almost taste it...seriously... I think I'm going to have to check out my World Market this weekend.

  9. 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.
