It's freaking hot in Utah and not having central air is ROUGH. We thankfully have a window unit installed in our room so we can sleep in the cool air, but the rest of the house stays nice and toasty all day long. In fact, by the time the sun goes down, it's about 15 degrees warmer inside the house then it is outside the house. The heat makes it basically impossible to turn the oven on in my house or want to cook over the stove, so Dustin and I do a lot (and I mean A LOT) . . .
THE COUNTDOWN IS ON! Dustin and I will be on a plane before we know it, flying across the country and back to my beloved New England to spend a week at our grandparent's beach cottage and I. cannot. wait. It's been a really crazy summer for us, in mostly good ways, but also in a few stressful ways. This trip is exactly what we need to remove ourselves from our lives for a little bit and reset for fall. But, of course, before we get there, I have to pack for a beach vacation first. *Sigh* Packing is not my favorite thing. Ever since my junior year of high school, we've spent a full week at my grandparent's beach cottage, a few miles away from the Hampton boardwalk . . .
I've got a lot of helpful content lined up for the next couple weeks, so I decided it'd be fun to do a little personal life-update in the form of a currently post. As much as I love putting together lists and writing thorough reviews about makeup and clothes, I also don't want to lose grasp of the fun posts that made blogging enjoyable to start. After all, it’s important to me to share the little things about life because that’s what makes life the most vibrant!

I am so, SO excited for fall to get . . .

If you were hanging out with me on Instagram Stories this weekend, you probably saw the ridiculous state my makeup vanity was in on Friday night. The term "hot mess" has never been more accurately used then when referring to what it looked like. I spent the whole night going through every drawer in my vanity, throwing out all the old makeup, organizing all my good makeup, and finding surprising little treasures, like a half-eaten piece of chocolate and some command hook strips. You know, cause clearly my makeup vanity is the best place to store those kinds of things (insert eye-rolling emoji . . .
Welp. August is here. Which basically means Christmas is around the corner. Happy New Year, 2019! (Am I right, or am I right?) I know we're already well past the 1/2 year mark of 2018, but I wanted to sit down and do a check-in on my word of the year, and hopefully encourage you to do the same. Why? Because, for me, it's around this time of year that I've thrown the towel in and given up on whatever goals I've set for myself this year. The bright and shininess of a new year have worn off completely and I'm usually drowning in the motions of every-day life. Get up late. Go to work. Come home. Make dinner. Try to do some work on my blog. Go to bed too late. . . .
