Thursday Thoughts

This has been one of those week's that was both good, bad, and really long and I've got a fair amount to talk about so I'm just going to dive right in. As per usual, I'm joining Jen of Ramblings of a Suburban Mom for her Thursday Thoughts Link Up.

My very first hosted link up was successful, though I only had one person join in. But that was more than I thought would join since my blog is still on the smaller side. I'll be doing it again for the first Monday of November so keep an eyeball out on my Twitter account the Saturday before hand for the theme.

The blog continues to grow in ways that amaze and surprise me, and several of my social media accounts are getting large enough that I'm thinking of hosting another giveaway to celebrate. I'm thinking I'll do it in December as a sort of holiday event, and to keep my shipping costs down I'll more than likely do a gift card or something of that nature.

Sometimes the posts that get really popular are the ones I wasn't expecting. My recap of my time with Ipsy proved to be very popular, as were some of my more information based posts. I may try and do at least one info post a week, maybe spread out the product reviews a bit more than I have in the past. If there are specific topics you'd like me to write about, please let me know in the comment section.

I'm currently rocking some Jamberry accent nails courtesy of Kathy Sweet, who sent me a sample to test out. Take a peek at my Instagram account, the picture should be up by now. I really love how they look, so if they last like everybody claims they do I will for sure be ordering some. Who here has tried Jamberry? What were your thoughts on them?

On the personal side of things, my son just started Taekwondo lessons at the school I work at. I won't be his teacher for a very long time, but its nice to just sit back and enjoy him enjoying the classes. He's in our little kid program right now, and he's so cute in his uniform (called a dobok) I just want to eat him up. I'm just super proud of him right now and I love sharing this with him.

I'm almost over my cold and I've decided someone needs to invent runny nose proof makeup. I swear after 5 minutes I've wiped away all the makeup off my nose, leaving it bare and red. Being able to cover up the plague face is one of the perks of makeup, so I'd like it to stay on next time.

Looking forward to going to the pumpkin patch this weekend, but it'll probably be pouring down rain the whole time. Guess its not Fall till I see someone canoe down my street (so not a joke, this legit happened). What fun fall plans do you have coming up?


  1. I would have loved to join the link up but I painted my nails the night before - and since I know I'm on holidays at the start of November, I will have to miss that too!
    I will join you in December for some holiday themed nails?
