Mid-week confessions

Thursday, July 13, 2017

Happy Thursday! I wanted to bring back mid-week confessions, but in true form, I'm a tad late on this one. I meant to have this ready by Wednesday, but with summer and the kids and crazy life happenings it just didn't happen. Better late than never, though, right? This is such an easy and fun little way for me to check in on the regular and share some fun little tidbits that have been on my heart and mind lately. So let's get started!

Summertime has me all kinds of cranky. Seriously- I've had the summertime blues or something over here. My kids have been fighting nonstop, it's been hotter than heck, and most days I don't have the energy or patience to take them all in public by myself. We've made it to the water park exactly one time and were zero for three when it comes to the lake. I think we're going to call this "the summer we spent at home" because we're doing a lot of backyard hangs by the kiddie pool and bike rides around the neighborhood in the mornings and evenings. Oh, and don't forget hours glued to the XBOX or watching movies and soaking up the AC in our pajamas, because hey, let's be real. Entertaining four kids- one of whom is a potty-training toddler and another high maintenance baby is a huge undertaking. I'm just high-fiving my husband if they are all alive, fed, and semi-clean at the end of the day.

Winter is here. Not literally, but if you're a Game of Thrones fan you know exactly what I'm talking about. Winter has been coming, and now it's here...the new season starts this Sunday and I can't wait to pick up where we left off. I've been impatiently waiting since they decided to delay the premiere this season (lame) and shorten it to only 7 episodes instead of 10. Next season (the final one) will only be 6 episodes! What the hell, HBO? Why are you doing this to us? We neeeeeeeed more Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen and dragons and white walkers. These need to be like 4 hour episodes. This is the only show that my husband will watch with me and I don't have anything good to watch at the moment, so I'm dying for this to start up again!

I have no clue how to dress myself! Do I shop in the old lady section and give in to elastic waists and tapered legs? Or do I roll into the Junior section with my double stroller and teen and tween in tow? Seriously...someone tell me how to dress for my age because I surely can't figure it out. I tried on this weird jumper thing at Target and it just wasn't good, so I went back to my boring jean cut off shorts and tank top. 

I've been a tad bit obsessed with all things makeup and skincare related lately. My name is Melissa, and I'm a SeneGence least I admit it! I had no idea when I signed up to sell LipSense that I'd be also selling an amazing skincare & makeup line too. Anyone who knows me (or my blog) knows that I love all things beauty related and I'm always trying new products and different brands. Not anymore. I literally trashed all of my old stuff and swapped it out for SeneGence- it's that good! Everything is vegan, cruelty-free, gluten-free, long-wearing, and made in the United States and comes with 100% money back guarantee too, which is amazing! I'm so happy with everything I'm using now and I've seen a huge difference in my skin. Before, it was chalky and oily at the same time (and how does that even happen?) I had way more lines and wrinkles and my skin was just dull and flat and boring. Now it's perfectly moisturized, my lines and wrinkles are less pronounced, and my skin is more radiant and almost glows. I'm definitely going to be sharing some of my favorite products here on the blog. Never before did I think I'd be going makeup free on facebook live to do makeup looks, but that's what I've bee finding myself doing a lot lately.

Which brings me to blogging. Now that I feel a little more balanced with this LipSense/SeneGence venture, I hope to blog a little more regularly again. No promises, but it's just a goal of mine!
