In case y’all didn’t know, I’m a total scaredy cat and hate commitment without A LOT of preparation, which is why it’s amazing that I somehow ended up with three tattoos. Even though I haven’t ever gotten permanent or semi-permanent treatments, I’ve always wondered about lash extensions — I hate how clumpy my mascara gets. When Lash Spa Studio in South Tampa invited me in, my response was heck yes.
I had a ton of questions — I hate how tired my eyes feel when I wear false eyelashes, so I needed my lash extensions to be gorgeous without feeling uncomfortable or inconvenient. Tallia from Lash Spa Studio assured me that I’d be in good hands, so I went in with an open mind and was super excited with the results.
If you’ve been wondering why my blog has gone mostly silent, good question. I went from posting several times a week to throwing a post up every once in a while without intending to! I’m trying to get back on track, but October has been nearly as busy with non-blogging things as September.
My last try-on session did surprisingly well — I seriously didn’t think anyone would read my ramblings about what I liked and didn’t like from Nordstrom’s annual sale, but based on the positive feedback I received, I knew I wanted to do another. I’ve been putting it off, but my sweet friend Lattes with Liz convinced me to just go for it! I absolutely love Target’s fall clothing, so I stopped in to shop and see what I’d like.
I have a confession to make — I didn’t buy anything during Lilly Pulitzer’s Summer 2018 After Party Sale. I didn’t even look at the website! Before any of y’all get worried that I’ve had a personality transplant, it’s good to know that I’ve been busy — time-wise and financially — with exciting news. We bought a house!
Raise your hand if you have a weird relationship with your curves. (Picture me jumping up and down enthusiastically.) I got my first “training bra” when I was 8 years old and have had hips since I hit puberty. I’ve written about my self-image struggles, but one of the things that has complicated my journey is that I’ve always had a large chest and butt with wide hips. Even when I was much skinnier, I felt disproportionate to the people around me.
Life is full of cheer because APS IS HERE! I try not to be too corny, but there’s no other way to express my excitement for Lilly Pulitzer’s After-Party sale. Save the date: It’s September 10-12, 2018. With only a few days left until the sale begins, I wanted to round up all of the questions I get most frequently about the sale. If you have any additional questions, leave them in the comments! Also, make sure you to scroll down to enter the giveaway at the bottom — it’s a good one.
