2 yrs. on WordPress and Walking Pneumonia

2 yrs

Happy Monday Everyone!

Today’s post is going to be a short one if you haven’t guessed from the title I have walking pneumonia. Don’t ask me how I got it and how I managed to work a full work week while feeling like crap, beats me. I have been pretty much bedridden since I came home from work on Friday evening. If I attempt to walk or get dressed, basically be a normal human being I feel my lungs ache and my chest starts to hurt. I am current taking antibiotics and I am hoping I will be back to normal in a few days.

Let’s move on to a happier subject. I celebrated my 2nd year here on WordPress this past Saturday. TWO YEARS!?! How crazy is that? I never realized when I made this blog that two years later I would be posting things and people would actually follow me let alone read what I had to say. With a humble 241 followers I have achieved more than what I would have ever imagined with this little space. A big part of that is thanks to all of you who read and support me. I would have never stopped and thought that my little blog would be interesting to anyone, but me. You all have been with me in the highs and in the lows of my life and I am grateful to be able to post regularly and talk to so many of you on here.

Here is to many more years of blogging!

Cheers!

This is going to be a quick post. I had an allergic reaction last night, but I didn’t want to go without posting today! I want to say a huge Thanks you to everyone who has followed my blog I reached 150 followers! To some that may be a small number, but to me that is more than I could have dreamed of.

I also got a hair cut, nothing big just 5 inches chopped off. I will talk more about what I like and dislike about my short hair. Hope you have a great Monday!

What I’m Loving: Birthday Week Edition

As you all know from my last post on my blog I turned 23 on Sunday August 18th. I had a very chilled and relaxed birthday with not one but two naps! (more on that later on in this post!) I am very grateful for my family and friends that made me feel very special over this last week/weekend. I could not have asked for a better birthday (well maybe skipping out on the cold I had :().

Here are a few of my favorite things for last week/my birthday!

The first thing I want to talk about is my skydiving experience. I decided that I was not going to take any pictures or video because I wanted to soak it all in. I also didn’t want to worry about my DSLR camera being stolen while I jumped out of a plane!

So all I have to prove that I did actually skydive is a certificate and a t-shirt that says “I jumped!”. Hopefully that is enough proof and you will believe me when I say that it is the most terrifying yet amazing experience I have ever been a part of. I got to do a few twirls in the air aka “air donuts” which just made the experience even more amazing. If you are thinking about it let me tell you it is a once in a lifetime experience and you will not regret it.

Sadly I had a cold the day of my skydiving adventure. This made me have a different experience than what someone who is not sick gets to have. I had to sit down after we landed because all of the air that I got from free-falling was a shock to my system. I knew it was going to hit me harder than my friend but still voluntarily decided to skydive. Overall I can say I wouldn’t change a thing, even the fact that I was sick because I ended up having two great naps on my actual birthday something I haven’t done in about 18 years.

Since you all know I love me some beauty products I had to include my favorite four products that kept me extremely happy this past week. The first one should come to no surprise it is the Tarte Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in achiote this is simply beautiful! Next is my trusty never let me down concelear by Benefit, Erase Paste this stuff is my holy grail at concealing my under eye bags. The last two were featured in my birthday haul. They are the Deborah Lippmann glitter polish in Happy Birthday, very fitting for this week and the Laura Mercier lip gloss in Bare Pink.

One last Favorite I promise! I picked up these boots at Target and I am in love with them! They are something I wouldn’t normally wear but I decided that this fall is going to be all about experimenting and trying new things.

I am a sucker for the detailing and colors that these boots show. I think I may have found my new favorite fall boot.

I want to take this time to thank you for following my blog I have a little over 50 followers you all are amazing and I would have never guessed I would have so many people interested in what I had to say when I started this blog in January. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Has anyone else skydived? What was your experience like? Would you do it again?
What is on your bucket list? Are excited for fall? I am so ready for fall to get here!

See you on Wednesday!
