HELLO Stranger!


*Many thanks to Lindt HELLO for sponsoring today’s story, and giving my readers a chance to win really sweet prizes!*
Hello is the start of many conversations, whether it's introducing yourself for the first time or you are greeting family and friends. My favorite person I say this to is Michael (my boyfriend), whether it is in text, or in person. Lately both of us haven't seen much of each other due to our busy schedules, but last Thursday we were finally able to have a simple little date night, and I greeted him by saying, "HELLO, stranger!" While our date was simple, it was made memorable thanks to some new chocolate from Lindt. And let's just say Lindt knows how to say HELLO!

Makeup Monday: SOBO Skin Care Review

*This post is sponsored by Brandbacker and SOBO Skin Care, but all opinions are my own*
Here's to another skin care focused post, who else is excited? As you know, lately I've been very serious about my skin and also ways to "anti-age" it (or rather slow down that process lol). This time I was sent and asked to review SOBO's ULTRA Age Repairing Cream with Reserveratol.

Help My Friend Publish Her Book!


I know I haven't blogged in a while and I apologize for that. Work has been crazy and I've had a lot to take care of on my days (weekends) off. Anyway, today I wanted to ask for your help on behalf of my friend Vanessa. She is not only my coworker and friend, but also is a self-publish author. She has a KickStarter going on right now and needs your help so she can publish her book.

OOTD: Letters at the Beach

I've been trying to post this Outfit of the Day since Monday, but work and my computer decided otherwise. Work kept me busy, but iPhoto decided to give me a heart attack telling me I had lost these pictures. Thankfully, I found a blog that explained how to recover the pics. Anyway, last Sunday, I finally got myself to the beach. Even though I live in California and the beach is only a short drive away, I usually get busy or plans to the beach fall through. But glad Labor Day weekend came around and my mom and sister decided it was a great time to go to the beach (even with the crowds).
