Operation Brunch- Theme: FALL!

Good Morning!

Fall is in the air, and I couldn't be more thrilled! I know that many people would agree that fall is one of the best times during the year.  The crisp air, and the changing colors just really make me happiest.

This year is the first year I have a place of my own to decorate, so I am extra excited.  I had pumpkins in our house the first day it was even a little bit chilly!

So since I now have a house to host things in, its becoming my favorite season, AND I've been able to decorate for fall, I felt it was appropriate to host a fall themed brunch with my 3 oldest and closest friends!

With us all living in different directions and having separate lives it's been a WHILE since the four of us got together.  I'm so happy they all made it out here this weekend.  It was a lovely day of laughing, drinking mimosas and casually annoying Scott while he tried to watch football.  I'm also glad that I now have the opportunity to host casual events with my friends. …

On to the Next! -- I got a promotion!

Good morning.

Happy Fridayyyy!

Today is the most bittersweet day for my career. It is my last day working with the team I've been with since day one at my current company (though this is the first company I started working for once out of college). Now I'm not leaving the company I work for, but I recently got promoted to a different department. This means I move up a floor, and will really only see my current coworkers in passing!

I am EXTREMELY excited to start this new chapter in my life.  This is a position I have been wanting, and felt was the right next move for my career.  But I think it's difficult to let go of things you are comfortable with, and it's especially hard when you love all your coworkers!

It's not just my team I will miss either! My current boss is really the reason I have gained the momentum I have in the working world. He has always been dedicated to my growth, and has been someone to help guide me through life.  I could easily thank him for …

Monday Make Up Haul

Happy Monday!

Over the last few weeks I have acquired yet another unnecessary amount of makeup/ beauty products. See I've developed quite a bit of a makeup addiction in the last year.  I would like to say all of my recent purchases were my way of "catching up" and obtaining all the "necessary" products to create a full make up look... but I would be lying.

I have gotten carried away! And personally I don't mind.  I love it! It's just that my bank account doesn't always agree with me. Such a downer ya know?!

Anyway. the products below are my current daily necessity products :) 


Jaclyn Hill x Morphe Eye Master Brush Collection $62 $42
Maybe I'm just a loyal fan to Jaclyn Hill, but this collection has become my holy grail.  The blending brushes are amazing.  I like to think I'm pretty great at blending to begin with but I think this is a great starting place if you're not!  There is also this little tiny brush that is the most PERFECT size a…

A Condo Closet Paradise

Recently we were woken up by what seemed like life just throwing annoying house issues at us. The closet "system", which was really just a long pole stuck into the two ends of the room came crashing down one morning!  I had been saying this was going to happen for days, but it finally happened.  All of our clothes, boxes, and random junk we kept in the closet now sprawled all over the floor. WHAT A WAY TO WAKE UP...am I right?!

 See, with me recently moving in with Scott (my boyfriend of 4 years 😋), came a lot more stuff that the closet wasn't equipped to handle apparently! I was "slowly" moving bags of clothes and hanging them up without Scott knowing. (I did it when he wasn't home... shhh....).  But because the closet was being used by a man who has far less clothes, and really only likes maybe 4 t-shirts it became very noticeable it was an issue. But we just continued living hoping for the best.  
Now to be completely honest, this closet needed a remode…

Monday Music - Holy Child

Happy Monday!

I've had an unusually busy start to the week this week, but I wanted to pop on and mention a song I've been really loving.

Hundred Thousand Hearts by Holy Child


I have been following the progression of this band since college.  I actually occasionally hung out with the lead singers sister from time to time.... Well we ran in the same circle of friends.  She must have mentioned the band, or posted it somewhere and I took a listen!

Turns out their music is quite quirky, but in the best way! The lead singer, Liz Nistico has a unique voice that fits well with their electric pop song. And the chorus is always something catchy that keeps you coming back. 

This particular song has a simple start, that picks up at that chorus. One thing I always love is how a song starts out in the most simple way and the gradually picks up through the song, until eventually you have this full band, choir, and additional instruments. The build up of a song like that always gives me this u…

Time for a change!

Hey blogging world, it's been a while!

A lot has changed since the last time I made a post. I feel as though it's time to give this blogging thing a real try.  Only I'm going to have to change things up a bit.  Looking back at my previous posts I've come to realize a lot of what was relevant to me then, no long applies.

My life has changed completely in the couple of years that have passed and I feel I would be much better suited as lifestyle blogger now.

At one time, all my previous posts were very important to me and could still be important in helping someone else's struggles.  So for that reason I am going to leave them on the blog.  I believe that I had to get through that part of my life to be where I am now!

Moving forward I am hoping to provide home decor hauls, fun outings with my little non traditional family, make up looks and style, music I'm really digging, and OF COURSE snacks and doughnuts.

I know this is nothing new, but I find myself always loo…

A Day in the Life of a Binge

Imagine you're floating above yourself. You can see yourself, but you can't rationalize with yourself, and you can't stop your actions. You can feel the struggle, and the pain that you are causing yourself, but nothing can stop your behavior.  You want to stop, you want to cry, and you want to take back the last 10 minutes to an hour. But you can't. All that consumes you in that moment is this anxiety and desire to eat every single delicious thing you can find until you truly hate yourself.



That's what a binge is...at least for me. 
Last time I posted I had mentioned I would explain a "normal" binge for me. Maybe you can identify  (to all my readers...lucky if I have one!), or maybe you aren't sure if you are experiencing the same thing, but I think its helpful to get it out in the universe.  We are never alone in our struggles.  People experience a lot of the things we do, we just tend to think we are at the only ones.  To my knowledge I don't kn…
