1// I hit 100 YouTube subscribers! Earlier this week I wrapped up my June vlogging challenge which I thoroughly enjoyed. I did a video where I answered some random questions, and the last day I wrapped it up with my favorite thing about blogging. The challenge was a fun introduction to vlogging, and I’m planning on doing more videos in the future. Thanks to everyone who encouraged me by watching, liking and commenting on the vlogs!
2// We got new bar stools for the breakfast bar! This actually happened a few weeks ago, but I’m going to count it because I love them so much. I bought a pair of bar stools from Target almost three years ago – and with my horrible assembly skills they weren’t ever very sturdy. They finally bit the dust (as in the seat came off the top of both of them!) so Paul got me a nice pair of saddle stools – which he assembled – so hopefully they’ll last a little longer. 🙂
3// Last week I picked up a bottle of OPI “my paprika is hotter than yours” and I enjoyed having it on my nails this week. My nails were horribly split and chipped, but with Sally Hansen’s Diamond Shine as a base and top coat, I’ve gone almost 5 days with very minimal chipping! Someone even asked if I had a gel manicure. What a nice compliment!
4// The humidity is ridiculous here. Foundation does not want to stay on my face – literally by the time I get to work it’s all splotchy and gross looking. I learned a great tip from Kate: mix a little bit of moisturizer in your liquid foundation (I’m currently wearing Revlon Nearly Naked) before applying it to your face. It makes a huge difference in how long the foundation stays put!
5// Happy Independence Day! I’d rather live in the USA than anywhere else…and plus we have Target in America. 🙂 My flag-wrapped vase was inspired by The Glamorous Housewife – check out her post on how to make your own!
Happy July 4th weekend!
