With September being a crazy month for work it is nice to just stay home on the weekends and get things accomplished. Any plans more than that and it would just stress me out more. This weekend was absolutely perfect. I got so much accomplished that it made me feel really good.
Friday I hit up Ulta, Christmas Tree Shop, and Lowe’s. At Ulta I got the Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick in Secret Agent and Goddess after Biana shared a link to this Fall makeup tutorial.
Sunday morning I started another book in the Book Challenge By Erin. I am already horrified by what she endured and I haven’t read that much. I hate that that kind of evil lives in this world, and they failed to catch him for so many things. This cider was more my speed, and was much needed after a long day.
How was your weekend?
Linking up with Biana from B Loved Boston.
I saw you working on that DIY from facebook this weekend and it turned out amazing!! Love the new colors you got at Ulta – I went there on Friday too and scored some goodies! Hope you have a great Monday! xo, Biana
Thank you. I love it so much more now. I love that shade and it goes so well with our complexions. Happy Monday!
Old family photos are so fun! Have you tried Ace Perry Hard Cider? It’s a cider that’s made from pears and is divine if you like sweeter drinks! The new top on your coffee table looks great!
I haven’t seen that brand. Sounds really good though I’ll have to try and find it.

What a great weekend ! So many things done and a blast from the past looking at pictures. So awesome that you can do all of these DIYs.
I shy away from the evil stuff so much anymore and send the lights to those who are involved. God and Goddess speed to all of us. Love, Steph’s Momma
It was so fun looking at them, and to see all the changes. It is so sad to know that it exists but we have to prevent it too.
I love old pictures, they are so much fun to look at.
Your table top turned out great!!
It was hilarious looking at them all, such changes. Thanks, I am loving it in the space now.

LOVE how your diy turned out!! the finished product is amazing!! those pics are too adorable. loved the dancing ones i saw on your insta.
I love that it created more space and less cluttered feeling. I was a dancing queen!! Haha!!
Your DIY came out so great!! You are so good at DIY. I have been wanting to read that book but haven’t because I’m not sure I can read all the horrors that poor girl when thru. So very sad.
Thanks!! I try for sure. It is really sad and so devastating what she went through but she does say that she is sharing in the hopes that we teach others about being more aware and how to cope.
I love your DIY projects! They both turned out soon good. I need to be more crafty, our house is so unfinished.
Thank you. It is so worth it and cheaper to upgrade what you already have, it really made the space.
How do you like that lipstick?! I’ve been curious about it many times… they have so many good shades!
Why didn’t the pink pants and suspenders picture make the cut here…??? lol 😉
It is really good, it is Matte but they also sell it in lipgloss form which I got a sample of and like it. Haha! I don’t know if I am brave enough to share that one. Maybe on Insta for a TBT someday.
kathy at more coffee, less talky says
family pics are always hilarious to look at!!! the one of you in that dress that you posted on social media, omg i laughed so hard hahahahah! but you did look all sorts of adorable in that gingham dress 😀
great job on the table and other DIY/home stuff!
I mean seriously what was our parents thinking. So much sass. I was so excited to knock some projects off my list.
I need to try hard root beer. Ibkeep meaning to but then never remember when I’m at the liquor store.
It is really good and was glad I found it since it was sold out at Trader Joe’s when I tried to find it earlier.

I read the book about Amy Smart & her years of being abducted..you’re so right – the evil in this world is scary.
Love you tackled your counters. Makes you feel like you can breath better, doesn’t it?
It is so heart breaking what they went through and for so long.
Yes, I have wanted to tackle my kitchen for months so glad it is finally done!
Life According to Steph says
Cluttered kitchen counters make me mental. I try to keep mine very clear!
Great job on the projects!
It was really bugging me but I am so glad they are clear. Thank you!
I must try that root beer. People keep raving about it.
I read that book as well and was also horrified :/ Poor girl.
It was really good, I was surprised because I am not a regular root beer fan. It is heartbreaking, and even more so that she seemed numb to it at times. So sad.
Love the after products on your projects!!! I have got to learn your kick ass ways. I love The Christmas Tree Shop! I haven’t been in ours in a long time but they always have great finds. Hope you have a great week!
Thank you. My motto is you just got to try. The christmas tree shop is guaranteed to get you something even if you are going to spray paint it later!! 😉
The table looks awesome! I love the stain of that wood!
Thanks, it’s my favorite stain. I ended up buying like two cans of it. Hehe!

Holy productiveness Batman, you rocked it gurlie! And now I’m totally craving a hard root beer and a trip to the Christmas Tree Shops 🙂
Thank you. I totally get motivated this time of year. That hard root beer was so good.
LOVE the table! And the rug! Also, I have been on a decluttering spree on my counters. Love all the old pics and of course, Seamus looks so handsome! xo
Thank you. It makes it seem so much roomy and cleaner, I love it. Thank you, he is worth a smile or two. 😉
I love going through old pictures. You had some good ones. 🙂
Great job on the DIY and the counter cleaning. Did you put the stuff in cabinets or get rid of them altogether?
Thank you. It was so fun looking through those old pictures. I put the coffee maker, blender, and my mixer in cabinets. The rest I went through and threw out anything I didn’t use and I stored anything seasonal to make room for the rest in the cabinets.
Oh my. You got so much accomplished! I’m so jealous. Lately work has been so physically exhausting that I’m lucky if I have enough strength to get our of bed on my day off. Having split days off most of the time doesn’t help either. Loving those candlesticks. Like big time. And Seamus is adorable!
Thank you! It was a productive weekend for sure. Split shift is tough, I suggest starting small. A little spray paint project gets the ball rolling you want to conquer more projects. Though a nap helps too. 😉
I have an Ulta gift card I need to use up! Oh my gosh the table is AMAZING!! Great job lady! Love Seamus sightings!
Oh yes use it up! Thank you, i am so much happier with it and how it fills the space. He is my little love bug.
Erin of TexErin-in-SydneyLand says
I am so impressed with your SKILLS! I’ve got some things that I need done. Can you hop on a plane and come on over? You can stay in my spare room. While you’re at it, bring Seamus. I need to see that smile in person 🙂
Thank you. Don’t tease me I have always wanted to go to Australia.
