The Week Ender v1.2

I’d really like to get into a Monday, Wednesday and Friday schedule. I had intended to start that this week, but the week somehow just got away from me.

Jeff has had really bad influenza since last Saturday. I’m not used to having him home all day, every day, and its really thrown me off. I often find it easier to write, take photos and create content when he isn’t around.

Gap had free shipping and an extra 20% off over the weekend so I grabbed this dress and these leggings.

I went to the gym two days ago for the first time in months. I did squats, and I’m still recovering. Stairs are a challenge.

I snagged a pair of these adorable Adidas Superstars at Winners earlier this week.

Jeff and I have been living in our house together for nearly three years, but every room in the house is only partially finished decor wise. I’ve been trying to work on that lately. First order of business, our bedroom. The bed frame/headboard we have is going on 10 years old and starting to show it’s age. I’m really loving this headboard from Wayfair. I think it would be a good place to start in making our room look more mature and put together.

My Sephora order arrived a few days ago. I haven’t even opened most of the products, but I’ve been trying out the It Cosmetics concealer. Its too soon to review it, but I’m not sure I love it. Is it really so much to ask that a concealer actually hide the darkness under my eyes? Am I expecting too much?

Beverly and I have a shoot scheduled tomorrow. Not surprisingly I don’t have clothing and locations 100% nailed down yet.


Hope you have a great weekend!

I’ve been holding off placing a Sephora order since the beginning of the year. I wanted to wait until February because BIRTHDAY MONTH and I wanted to snag my birthday gift without having to place a second order. I decided to branch out with my purchases this time, I picked up one tried and true product, and everything else are brand new products or brands for me. I’m really excited to try out some things from It Cosmetics and GLAMGLOW.

Speaking of GLAMGLOW, I scored this POUTMUD wet lip balm treatment for just $10 at Winners last night. Jeff is working nightshift tonight so I’ll probably have a little at home spa night and try it out. I also have an Origins Original Skin mask that I want to try. Stay tuned to instastories, things likely won’t be pretty around here haha.

I’m a bit of a shopaholic and since I quit my job you know I’ve had lots of free time to fill my carts online. It has taken every ounce of my self control not to empty my bank account. I have my eye on these flats from Sole Society, these jeans from Madewell, and a dozen or more other items that I won’t bore you with right now. I’m basically holding out for really good sales. You know, the “it was too good to pass up” kind of deals.

Jeff works a lot so I’ve been trying to spend some of this new found free time picking up the slack around home. Housework is not my forte so it really hasn’t been an easy transition for me. Some days I do better than others. Today for instance I’ve done three loads of laundry already. I’ve also been trying to spend some of that free time in the kitchen. I’ve cooked more meals in the past month and a half than I think I did in 6 months last year. Not only do I like to make sure that Jeff comes home to a cooked meal more evenings than not, I’m really liking honing my skills. With that said the list of things I know how to make is short, so if you have any suggestions, please send them my way.

My friend Beverly of BOW Photography has graciously signed on to take some photos for this little space on the web. We’re working on some fun things, so you’ll be seeing lots of her pictures around here in the next few weeks.

Janine, one of my favourite bloggers has recently relaunched her blog. You should check her out!


Hope you have a great weekend!
