Thanks to Babbleboxx.com for sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions and thoughts presented are entirely my own. Thanks for supporting Hey There, Chelsie! If you've been around here for a while, you might know that Valentine's Day holds some significant meaning to me, as it marks the anniversary off finishing my first chemotherapy treatment 13 years ago. For a while, Valentine's Day was hard for me because it brought back some pretty rough memories but I've worked hard to change how I felt about Valentine's Day over the last few years. Now, instead of using Valentine's Day as an excuse to feel sad about what I went through, I use it as an excuse to celebrate . . .
It's no secret that Dustin and I have been working really hard at changing our lifestyles for the last year and, I'm proud to say, we've been really successful in just that: lifestyle changes. Two years ago, we found ourselves both at our heaviest weight, with Dustin recovering from a very scary emergency gallbladder removal surgery while traveling for my sister's wedding. It scared us both. We realized that we had developed a lot of habits that were resulting in our bodies feeling pretty crummy and not performing the way we wanted them to. So, we set out to make changes that would actually stick and would slowly, but surely, give us the results we wanted: feeling . . .
Rounding up five of the best everyday red lipsticks found at the drugstore, including the best Maybelline red lipstick! This list also features red lipstick from Almay, Pixi by Petra, and Covergirl. Read on if you want to discover some of the best cheap matte liquid lipstick! Valentine's Day is right around the corner (wait, what? wasn't it just Christmas time?) and it's time to find that perfect shade of red lipstick to rock. While I have a few favorite high-end lipstick brands, I truly feel that drugstore brands have some of the best lipstick formulas on the market and you cannot go wrong with the price (especially if red is a color you'll only wear once in a . . .
I wasn't going to do a post on this Stitch Fix box, but a few of you spied it on my stories last week and wanted to see what was inside, so I whipped out my camera and decided to do a quick unboxing and try-on! This clearly is my best hair day ever (not) but hey - growing out bangs is a hard thing to do, you know? If you have never heard of Stitch Fix before, here's how it works: StitchFix is a clothing subscription service, where you have a personal stylist that sends you 5 items of clothing and accessories to try on in the comfort of your own home. You pay a $20 dollar styling fee and can write a note with any special requests for specific clothing you may be . . .
This post was sponsored by Ling Ling, all opinions expressed in my post are my own. Six years ago, I was packing up two suitcases with all of my belongings and all of the school supplies I could fit in them and getting ready for the adventure of a lifetime. After getting my left knee totally replaced, courtesy of my tumor, I finally felt like I was ready to take on the world and shove it right back in cancer’s face. I was going to take back my life and everything that cancer had told me that I would never be able to accomplish or do. So, as any logical twenty-four year old would do, I deferred from school, packed my suitcases, and got on a plane that took me . . .
This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.com on behalf of popchips. Thanks for supporting the brands that support HTC! Superbowl Sunday is just TWO Sunday's away and we are VERY excited (being Patriots fans, and all.) Even though we've been pretty dang spoiled with our team making it to the Superbowl for the last three years, we love throwing Superbowl viewing parties every year, no matter who's playing. There's just something magical about combining the biggest football game of the year with friends, family, and food! Sometimes we're invested in the game and sometimes we're not, but we love an excuse to get together to watch the commercials, critique the . . .
The New England Patriots are going to the Superbowl. I know, I know. If you aren't from New England, chances are you're miffed, upset, and annoyed that TB12 and crew are heading to the Superbowl for the 3rd year in a row (and for the 10th time in his career.) I can understand why that might be a little bit of a bummer for fans outside of Boston (which is why last year's super bowl loss wasn't as big of a heartbreak as previous losses were - I was okay to share the trophy with the Eagles.) But, as a girl who grew up 45 minutes outside of Boston, who spent every Sunday afternoon watching the Patriots with her dad and learning the game inside and out, and who met . . .
I’ve partnered with the Dove team for today's post - all opinions are my own. Thanks for supporting the brands that support HTC. Well, it's no secret to my Instagram family that I've been on one heck of a skin journey over the last few months. I went from having the best/clearest skin of my adult life to having the worst skin of my whole life in general. Painful cystic acne, uneven skin tone and texture, and dry patches everywhere. As a self-proclaimed beauty-junkie, it's been frustrating and a bit scary to have my skin have this kind of meltdown of epic proportions. I've been worried I would have to get rid of all my favorite makeup and haircare products and . . .
*affiliates Last year, instead of doing a "best of beauty post," I put together a very extensive list of my absolute favorite beauty products and recommendations and titles it: "40 Beauty Products to Try in 2018." I did NOT expect it to take off the way that it did. It's been shared thousands of times on Pinterest, referred to frequently by the HTC community, and became a one-stop shop for anyone looking for a solid recommendation on what product to add to their beauty collection. So, it only made sense to sit down and create the same type of post for this year. Without further ado, here are my top 40 beauty products that I TRULY tested out through 2018 and . . .
It's the first Monday of the new year and I don't know about you, but I'm feeling on fire after spending the weekend checking off the rest of my list of things to do to prepare for the new year! My house is clean, laundry has been folded and put away, we've meal planned and prepped and I'm slowly (but surely) getting ahead of myself on blog/business work. I'm feeling all of that motivation that comes with a new year, but I know that in the next couple of months, I'll start to lose some steam and get lazy (and I know I'm not the only one.) So, I'm pulling together a list of motivational quotes to refer to when we're feeling a little stuck or unmotivated to keep . . .
