Why yes, that is a bathtub wine glass holder. And yes, it was the best purchase I’ve ever made on amazon. And yes, I do take bath time very seriously. Thank you for noticing. #winewitheverything

The most wonderful birthday gift from my godmother. A pin that belonged to her mother, my grandmother and guardian angel. I am honored to wear it.

Time for a skinny dip in Lucille Balls pool while I await the arrival of my ladies. Birthday weekend starts now! #birthdaysuit

I haven’t done a #tbt in a while, so here’s my EMBARASSING (thanks autocorrect for capitalizing that) 8th grade school picture where I look like a 40something soccer mom (seriously, what is that hair). Miracles exist people.

Two years ago, I stumbled across the most amazing blog that inspired me to be more crafty, makeover my home and my closet and start my own blog. I dreamed about collaborating with @elsielarson and @emmaredvelvet and thanks to an introduction by our mutual friend @bnizz, I got a chance to do just that! Today my first hair tutorial post is up on www.abeautifulmess.com and I am so thrilled. Thank you ladies for having me in Springfield to create these posts! I am so excited to be a ABM contributor, stay tuned for more posts coming soon!

LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING ABOUT THIS STUFF
I BOUGHT IT
MONTHS AGO
TRIED IT ONCE
I THOUGHT IT WAS HORRIBLE
IT WAS STICKY AND CEMENTED MY LIPS TOGETHER
IT GOT ON EVERYTHING 
IT DIDN’T SUPER-STAY
I THREW IT INTO MY DRAWER WITHOUT ANOTHER THOUGHT
AND THEN OUT OF THE BLUE I DECIDED TO TRY IT AGAIN
HOPE IN MY HEART, PEACE IN MY SOUL, I DECIDED TO TRY IT AGAIN
I READ THE DIRECTIONS
AND ALL OF A SUDDEN, I SAW THE LIGHT
I COULD SEE CLEARLY NOW, THE RAIN WAS GONE
TURNS OUT
YOU HAVE TO PUT THE RED STUFF ON FIRST
WAIT FOR IT TO DRY
COMPLETELY (I MISSED THIS STEP BEFORE)
IT SHOULD BE SO DRY AND IF YOU KISS THE BACK OF YOUR HAND, NO MARK SHOULD SHOW
AND THEN I PUT THE BALM ON (I ORIGINALLY TRIED PUTTING THE BALM ON FIRST…. DON’T DO THAT.)
AND IT GOT RID OF ALL THE STICKINESS
AND THE RED DOESN’T EVEN GET ALL UP IN THE WHITE BALM
IT WAS A MIRACLE 
THIS STUFF IS THE FUCKING BEST
IT STAYS ON FOR A REALLY LONG TIME
IT DOESN’T GET ON ANYTHING
AMAZING I WANT TO BUY THIS IN FORTY SHADES OKAY I ENCOURAGE YOU ALL TO TRY IT

NO BUT DO KEEP IN MIND THAT IT REALLY DOES STAY ON FOR A VERY VERY LONG TIME
AS IN, LONG ENOUGH TO FORCE YOU TO SCRUB IT OFF AT THE END OF THE DAY
THIS STUFF ISN’T FOR THE WEAK, THIS IS FOR THE POWERFUL BADASSES WHO WASH THE BLOOD OF THEIR ENEMIES OUT OF THEIR CLOTHES AT THE END OF THE DAY LIKE ITS NOTHING

IF YOU RUB TOOTHPASTE ON YOUR LIPS IT COMES OFF EASIER

YES THIS IS A GOOD TIP I HAVE HAD THIS EXPERIENCE
GIVE IT A LIL SCRUB WITH THE OL’ PEARLY WHITE RUB A DUB DUB
IT WILL COME OFF
IT WILL DO AS YOU COMMAND
THIS MAKEUP   O B E Y S
IT   S T A Y S

Oil-based makeup remover or anything oily will remove it as well.


I’m not usually one to reblog. But I back this 110%.
