How is almost half of the year over? I can't believe it. I feel like it was just yesterday that Dustin and I were celebrating the new year in Idaho and dreaming of our moving day to California to come. Now we've been in California for almost two months and nearing the end of our stint hear and nearing our next move: Arizona! I'm not going to lie, May was a rough month for me. Between some health issues, struggling with some anxiety and a job that was draining me, I didn't accomplish much of my May goals. I read 5 books instead of 8, made it to the gym a total of 5 times instead of my goal of 12 and didn't get a vlog done. I did exceed my goal of Bloglovin' followers . . .
It's real talk time. You may have noticed some minor redesigns around here and I'm so excited about them! I wanted a bit of a new look to start off this month because things are changing in my life and it feels right to begin with a fresh look. So. I quit my job. Let's back track. When I first started blogging seriously at Life with Rosie, I was stuck in a rut. I had just graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in English Education that I had worked towards for six years and after completing my student teaching and getting my degree, I was left at a complete loss. There was nothing for me to work towards anymore, and as much as I loved my student teaching . . .
Some of these products were received in exchange for my honest opinion from Influenster. It's the end of May? Already? Where is this year going? End of the month means another In and Out round up; a monthly series where I review products that worked for me (In) and products that disappointed me (Out). In: Covergirl's Intensify Me Liquid Eye Liner-c/o Influenster. I got this eyeliner in a voxbox this month and was excited about it because it came the day I was planning on going to Sephora and buying a Stila liner. I have never been so impressed by a drugstore liquid eyeliner. This stuff goes on smoothly and has a gorgeous inky black color. It . . .
Thank you to Chewy.com for sponsoring today's post. I received free product in exchange for my honest opinion. Rosie is a chewer and has been since day one. When she was still a youngin' we were really struggling with how to help her control her chewing habits; mainly teaching her to stay away from the laundry basket where she would pull out socks and then chew them to shreds. (Apparently sock hoarding is a Golden Retriever trait. When I cleaned out her toy bin before we moved, I found 17 socks stashed between her toys. 17. Socks.) At first it was kind of cute, but when they started making her sick or when we would come home to pieces of sock EVERYWHERE, we knew we . . .

I will only promote products I genuinely love and feel like you would like as well! Cat from Oddly Lovely recently posted about how she is getting ready to create her own office space and put together a cute and whimsical list of office accessories. It got me day dreaming hard about my future office space, when Dustin and I get to move back into our own place at the end of the summer. As much as we love being close to family and taking a break from rent for the last few months and paying off some student loans, I miss having a space that . . .
