Weekly Wishes #4


I can't believe I've been doing this for a month. And just like last week, this post is a bit late. Mostly it's due to the fact that I've barely been home and have been enjoying lots of time with friends and my new special someone. But I haven't forgotten about you or my blog! So how did week 3 go?

Let's review what I wanted to accomplish:
1. Get More Sleep.- Like I said, I've barely been home so this definitely did not happen. But still striving for it. 

2. Organize Blog Duties- I was able to take care of some blog things and get a bit more organized. I also, along with a coworker, decided to invest in some blog design tools so at least some of this got done. 

3. Read More.- Yea this really didn't happen. But still working on it. 

So now for this week's goals:

1. Get Some Sleep.- So this one is slightly modified this week since it is Halloween tomorrow and well I'll be surprised if I get any sleep that day. This week has already been a weird one for sleep, but hey hopefully this weekend is a chill one and I get to nap most of it with Charlie.

2. Get Charlie to a groomer- So Charlie was having some issues with dry paw pads, but now that we took care of that, he really needs to get his nails cut cuz I'm too scared to do it myself. He also needs a light trim so his hair isn't poking his cute puppy eyes. So this is a weekend task.

3. Order a new phone- I really need to go do this. I still own an iPhone 4S and it is finally letting me know it's end is near. And now that I'm no longer under my ex's contract, I really should go place my iPhone 6 Plus order so I can get a new phone this year. 

So again, keeping it short, simple and somewhat doable this week. I have a feeling, I can cross off two of them off easily. I may be terrible at this keeping my wishes thing (for now), but still love these little lists.

Weekly Wishes #3


So third week is starting off a bit rocky. I've been busy going out with friends a lot this past week or so, which is great, but would end up with me being too tired to open up the computer once I got home. But thankfully, I'm only late with this post by about 2 days or so. Wow, time seems to always fly by so quickly. Now, let's see what I was able to accomplish and what I want to get done with this week.

Tea Tree Oil Review + Giveaway


*This post was sponsored by Brand Backer and Apothecary, but all opinions are my own*
Another day, another skin care product I was given the opportunity to review. Now I'm sure you've heard of tea tree oil or have used a product that had it as an ingredient. This could have been a facial cleanser, a shampoo or a lotion among other things. But most of those products probably only had traces of it and it most likely wasn't 100% pure tea tree oil. However, Apothecary Extracts 100% Pure Tea Tree Oil is the real thing, with no extra additives to it. And it can be used in many other ways.

Weekly Wishes #2


YAYYY, Weekly Wishes is back! I apologize that this post is going up a bit late this Monday, but I was working on another important post and also work was busy so I couldn't sneak in time then. But anyway, I'm excited to be starting my second week of weekly wishes.

Friday Favorites: Squees & More!

{Source: AHS Freakshow Twitter}
So this Friday has been full of surprises. Or really one somewhat unpleasant surprise. I ended up in the ER cuz I injured my foot, but thankfully no fracture just a fat swollen bruised foot for the weekend. But let's just focus on the positive.

Weekly Wishes #1


If you have been reading my blog for some time now, you may have seen me mention my love of to-do lists or something to that effect from time to time. Well I'm about to share a little more of my love for them with you with a new weekly post. This will not replace some of my Monday features, but will become a nice addition and a way to recommit to this blog since I've only been blogging once of week if at all. So starting today I'd like to introduce you to Weekly Wishes. Now before I get to what my weekly to-do list/goals are for the week, let me just mention that this wasn't of my own doing. This is actually part of a link-up that Melyssa over at the The Nectar Collective started sometime last year and it has since grown and spread to many other wonderful bloggers.
