New Additions to My Library


Hello everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. It’s silly, but if I leave for the day and see a groundhog or another random animal, that just makes the rest of the day better. I saw a groundhog today :) Those buddies are just too precious. Continue reading

Etude House Pink Bird Box June 2015


Hello everyone! Today is very beautiful here in Southern Indiana. The temperature is just right and there’s a bit of an overcast, so it’s just the perfect brightness outside.

Etude House, which you can visit at the global site, was very generous again this month in the Pink Bird Box.  I feel like this one was even more unique than the last one I received, but equally as lovely.  I think I forgot to mention this previously, but Etude House is cruelty free, which is only part of the reason why I love them so much!  Thank you Etude House for not testing on animals. Also, they ship internationally! Continue reading

Attention Span of a Gnat


Chester is doing well. I know you all are probably just dying to see a picture of him again ;) I took this one just a few minutes ago. He is not really loving this heat because he can’t sit in front of an open, screened window and hear the birds and bugs chirping. I love this boy :) Continue reading

24 Hours of Being Gluten-Free


I am so glad that I broke down a month and a half ago and signed up for a gym membership at Planet Fitness. That place really is all that it claims to be. I feel so comfortable working out there and have noticed a significant difference in my appearance and self-esteem. My posture is getting so much better! I just needed some actual muscles in my upper back and boom, it’s better.   Continue reading

Reviews for this Week


Hello everyone! I’ve been taking a bit of a break this week. I haven’t been motivated to write much because I’ve enjoyed my nights at the gym and just being outside in this hot summer weather. I love the heat!  I love being able to wear shorts and sandals and not be freezing. Continue reading

The Meaning Behind My New Header Image


I am so in love with this new header image.  A fellow blogger and friend, Diana, had it illustrated for me!  She is an incredible lady and gets the opportunity to travel all over the world and share her adventures.  Her header is actually another illustration by the same artist. Continue reading

Some of the Coziest Things Around My Home


None of you have really seen my home, which is actually a small, one bedroom apartment located in the middle of a wooded area.  I actually have a stream below my balcony in the woods, but the trees are so overgrown right now that you can’t see it.  The other day it was raining and our woods looked like Jurassic Park.  I actually expected to see a T-Rex poking its head through the branches.  Thank goodness, I did not. Continue reading

Me and My Big Nose


I’m sure everyone has something about their appearance that they are uncomfortable with. For some people it may be an inner quality that bothers them more than anything on the outside, and vice versa. Whatever it is, I’m sure you all can relate. Continue reading

I have some really exciting news in my life right now.  I was waiting until I posted this review to tell you all and it’s taken me awhile to write this one post, but I finally am ready to reveal this awesome news.  I was chosen by ETUDE HOUSE global, based in Seoul, the Republic of Korea (South Korea), to be a Pink Bird!
