On Wednesdays We Confess Vol 39

humpdayconfessions

Happy Wednesday Y’all!! I am in awe that Christmas is only 12 days away. It doesn’t seem real honestly. I am however, ready for a little bit of down town. It’s always needed, especially since January means full on craziness with my job. Enough about that though. Here are my confessions for this week.

I confess that I have been a little under the weather the past few days. It has put me back a little with the blog this week.

I confess that I really wanted to get my recent ColourPop haul posted for this Monday, but due to being under the weather…that didn’t happen. It will be up tomorrow though. Just have a few more pictures to edit. Fingers crossed!

I confess that we had my work Christmas party Monday and it was boring. Don’t get my wrong I am happy they threw us a party that wasn’t in our office building but it was not exciting.

I confess that I still have not finished Christmas shopping. I did however; pick up some stocking stuffers for my boyfriend this weekend. So I’ll take that is a win. He’s so hard to buy for.

I confess that I have received four 20% off coupons from Ulta due to being a Platinum member. This has never happened before and I promise you that I am not disappointed. I have a few things on my wish list still. Thank God they don’t expire until Christmas Eve.

I confess that I have been working really hard on upcoming content for the blog. I really hope that everyone likes it. I really want to take this blog to the next level.

I confess that this weather lately has been driving me insane. Hence the reason I have been feeling bad. It has went from being in the 30-50 degree range to being back in the 70’s. Um…mother nature please get it together. It is going to be back in the 30’s in a few days. The joys of living in the South. Lol.

I confess that Christmas Eve is going to be very busy and hectic for my boyfriend and I. We are doing Christmas with my family half the day and then his later that night. Talk about us being tired when that day comes. It will be well worth it though.

I confess that sometimes I wish I would have went to cosmetology school. I love make up and I think it would have been something I would have really enjoyed doing.

I confess that with this bipolar weather my skin has become so dry but remains oily around my nose. Talk about annoying.

I confess that the holidays really do bring out the best in people at times. It makes me smile. If only it could stay that way all the time.

I confess that I got a lighting kit (well only one light for now). I like it put I feel there could be more brightness. Any suggestions?

 

I could probably have a million more confessions this week but I’ll stop here. How has your week been going so far? Any confessions on your end?

    I have been sick this week, and still managed to bake 26 dozen cookies to feed 70 missionaries. It was all worth it.

      Amanda I did better this year with buying some presents ahead of time. Still need to get all my shopping done by the second week of December in the future.

      Chloe I am almost done. Just have a few gift cards to purchase. I think next year I will start planning a little bit more ahead of time. But I did much better this year.

    Hope you feel better soon! My hands are unfortunately so dry right now from the cold weather, so I can relate. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas holiday! 🙂

      Thank You Cara. I have gotten a little bit better but the weather is still being a little crazy. My hands have been more dry as well with the weather. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas holiday! 🙂

  7. Happy Wednesday sweet friend. I hope you start feeling better soon. The weather here in Ga has been bipolar, too. I can’t wait to see your ColourPop haul. There is so much more that I want but i’m being good and waiting until after the holidays to buy any more. I’m sorry your work party sucked but I hope y’all enjoy the rest of your Christmas celebrations.

    It’s never too late to chase your dreams girl. If you want to go to cosmetology school then I say, go for it! You know I already love your blog but I can’t wait to see where you take it in 2017.

    Happy Holidays Sweet Friend!

      Thank You sweet friend. I have been feeling somewhat better but the weather keeps changing, which hasn’t helped me much. I have so much ColourPop. I haven’t used a lot of it. So my goal next year is to start using more of my makeup and to try to not buy as much. Again I say that but it probably won’t happen. Lol. My work party was nice in the fact that I got to hang out with coworkers but it wasn’t exactly a party. Still thankful that they did one for us. So I shouldn’t complain much. I think Cosmetology school would be perfect for me but trying to find the time…that’s a different story. I am hoping to have a lot of great content come 2017. Thank You for always supporting my blog! I appreciate it so very much! I hope you are enjoying your holidays.

      Thank You Anya. I am almost done with all of my Christmas shopping. Puppies are always great for Christmas presents but even better as life long friends.

    I haven’t finished my shopping either. Hopefully this weekend! My skin is crazy right now too, weather sucks!

      Falon I only have gift cards left to get and then I am done. I have been using moisturizer so much more lately. My skin never gets this dry. I think it may also be because of the primer I have been using. It’s perfect for the summer time but not for the winter time it seems.

      Kiara they just sent me another one today. That makes five so far. This never happens! I will say that I am loving it though. I have used three of them already. I’m hoping to get gift cards for Christmas to go shopping some more. 🙂

  14. Don’t feel bad about the Christmas shopping. The only person I’ve shopped for so far is myself. So bad haha but we have SO many family members. Also, I totally contemplated cosmetology school at one point. But I dont think I’d ever want it for a career. Simply just for my own personal use and knowledge haha

      Keating I am almost done shopping. Just have to get a few stocking stuffer gift cards. Woo hoo!! I too have been buying presents for myself. Ooopssss….Ulta has been calling my name. I would love to go to Cosmetology school as well for my own personal knowledge. I would do make up on the side when needed.
