WE ARE ENGAGED!

08/10/17
Poor poor Jamison, nothing went right for this proposal. He had planned to surprise me in Gulf Shores Alabama by dropping of Blitz with a note for me to get ready and come meet my king at a secret spot on the beach but what had happened was....
Jamison drove the entire eight hour trip through storms so it delayed him getting to Gulf Shores in time. I was still shocked to see him and so excited he brought Blitz. Instead of a proposal he checked in to the BEST dog friendly hotel ever, Hotel Indigo in Orange beach. 5 minutes from where my family was staying. The whole family loaded up and headed to Lamberts for dinner.
08/11/2017
The next morning Jamison and I decided to take Blitz for a walk on a trail next to the hotel. Two ways to go on the trail and Jamison wants to go along the bridged trail. We begin walking, and we are walking, still walking. Only to discover the end of the trail had not been completed and we would have to turn back around, after walking 1.2 miles. It was HOT and cuddle bug was exhausted. We took turns holding him on the way back and eventually came out to the beginning. I read the sign next to the trail, the one Jamison chose. 1.3 mi vs the .7 mi trail that was shaded and finished. We then got ready for a beach day with cuddle bug in tow. Jamison spent the majority of the day riding (later breaking) Bailey's boogie board. We cooled off in the pool where the boys had a contest over who could hold their breath the longest. Jamison has so many talents... but the swim race was the one to see. Kyle nearly had an Alfalfa moment, Donald quit after touching the first wall, and Jamison was swimming so hard that he ran into Kyle and when doing so caught a cramp. We left about 4pm to go back to his hotel. When we got to Indigo he told me to get ready and that someone would pick me up at 7:30 and he left. I instantly started getting that flutter feeling in my stomach. I got all dolled up and at 7:20 I was down stairs waiting for my ride when low and behold Allison Patton was already waiting for me. She tells me she has no idea where she is taking me just that Jamison dropped a pin for her to go to. We make it to the secret spot and there I see Jamison. His long sleeve pressed white shirt and his Khakis, looking off in to the distance. Sounds super corny but it really was a dream. Jamison proposed with my grandmother's wedding band and then two weeks later he slid this gem on my hand.

Cliche New Year Post

Hey guys. I know I have been a horrible blogger this year. Seriously, the worst. Please have faith in me this next year. I have felt such inspiration this month to branch out and finally get out of my comfort zone. I'm a planner. As in if you looked at my side of the blog, I have over 50 thoughts and concepts to blog on. This new year I'm really going to hold myself accountable. Not just for blogging but I also want to follow through on my personal plans, my dreams, my commitments to friends and family. I'm going to stop putting things off and start crossing things off my list. I'm frustrated with my life right now and the only person I can blame is myself. I let things get this way. I let my body go. I let my friends slip away from me. I let my blog go to waste. I realize that now and I'm sorry to everyone. Truly. Dreams don't work unless you do so its time I stop planning and start getting to work. Tomorrow isn't guaranteed and we can't get back yesterday so Today I'm going to start taking risks. With this new year I'm committing to YouTube. I will also be posting here so don't worry, I'm not abandoning (neglecting) you! I want to cover all aspects of my life, my fitness journey, makeup, clothes, adventures. Oh that's another thing I want to do, I have to get my butt out of the house. I'm going places this year physically and spiritually. .

KAT VON D LOCK IT UNBOXING

  I thought the concealer was great. Only complaint is that it's so drying on already dry skin that it clung to dry patches under my eyes. Otherwise I love the consistency, the coverage is completely full coverage, smell is very pleasing, this really wears all day long and looks great at the end of the day. Blended out very well with a brush and with a beauty blender. Very slight creasing through out the day.

 I didn't like this brush for concealing under eyes, I thought it was very difficult to work with and took a very long time. BUT I did like this brush for contouring! It's perfect for precision carving out cheek bones and slimming your nose. 

This is a very nice setting powder. Not exactly translucent as it does have color to it but it isn't heavy. The powder itself is very light and perfect for baking under eyes to lock in that concealer just as it says. I also use it to set the rest of my face and it really keeps me looking matte all day.

This brush is not a setting powder brush. It was great for setting my entire face except under my eyes which needed it the lost. The brush itself is really nice and the packaging is perfect. I use it for blush and think that should be its intended purpose.
