*I was going to write a “Currently” post because I have so many things on my mind to share, but I think It would mostly read like this — Currently:
Eating: way too much candy
Hoovering: tootsie rolls into my mouth along with peppermint bark.
Navigating: life on a serious sugar high.
Feeling: bloated, obviously.
Avoiding: Garrett because he has the flu and has been down for the count with a fever for 4 days now.
In short, it would have been the least interesting and entertaining “Currently” post ever. So now, we do BULLETS!
*Mmmm…speaking of Bullets (or Bulleit, as it were) I am OBSESSED with this cocktail. And for some reason every time I drink it I wish that I was eating Bacon Wrapped Scallops. I may make that happen this weekend. And yes I do enjoy shaking up cocktails in my blender bottle. IT WORKS!
*So why all the drinking? Well, last minute work deadlines, the finishing of Christmas shopping, sick spouses, and the ABSOLUTE UNSEXINESS of having to spend over $1000 on repairs for your car the week before Christmas have me needing a little drink now and then, ya know? Bad Habits are abounding this year for me. I really can’t wait to get that in check!
*Completely unrelated: I have a new obsession with You Tube Beauty/Lifestyle/Organization Bloggers…or uh, Vloggers. But ew. No. I hate the word Vlog. It started because I was reading In Style and there was a list of Social Media Awards that had interesting people to follow in Instagram. One of them was Rachel Talbott from Check In The Mirror so I watched a couple of her videos and they were fun and fluffy and then I was like, “Hmmm…who else can I follow?”
*Well I’ll tell you who:
– Ashley of MakeupTIA – whose blog I used to follow and had forgotten was doing You Tube videos. She’s just the cutest.
– Rachel Haysidt – who is pretty hilarious.
– Reachel Bagley of Cardigan Empire – who couldn’t get any more adorable if she tried.
– Kendra of Vlog with Kendra who has the cutest Shiba puppy ever and makes me want a dog sister for Buster daily.
– Jayme and Mendi of Her Late Night Cravings – two VA gals talking clothes, hair and makeup.
– Estee of Essie Button – Product Junkie and You Tube Enthusiast, she has like a million channels.
– Mallory of Mallory Loves Makeup – I mean, it’s clear she does.
*The upside of this is that I have found a lot of great skincare and makeup suggestions lately. The downside is that I have bought more eyeshadow alone in the last 60 days than I’ve bought in the last 6 years.
*I’ve also loved watching all the food/cooking shows on Tastemade. Clearly You Tube is my new BFF.
*It’s been fun because I’ve been brainstorming a lot about how to incorporate more video into this here old fashioned website (God, HOLLY, without video you are SO BEHIND THE TIMES – HA!) and it’s definitely got my creative juices flowing watching how others do it. That said, I’m also very aware that I am completely out of my league and have no idea what I’m doing in that space, so you know 2014 might get ugly and inexperienced around here. Who wants to sit around and talk with me while we take video?
*Wait, that just got weird.
*Are you all ready for the holidays? Are you drinking more cocktails than usual? Are you kicking ass and taking names at life? If so, PLEASE TELL ME YOUR SECRETS.
