My Life: random snippets

Hi guys,

I hope you all had a fabulous May and are embracing what the month of June brings ahead. My life has been extremely hectic as of late. Most of it has been a pretty great hectic, but there has been some bad in the mix. I’m not one to dwell on the bad in life, but it’s life…it’s not always going to be rainbows and gumdrops. What I strive for when things are going less than great, is to dwell on all the amazing things in my life. So, that’s what this post is about. I’ve been so blessed with wonderful friends, family, a career and experiences, that it all trumps the blah. Below are just a few of the snippets of all the good going on in my life lately:

Camping trips and catching fish

Lastly, this guy. The love of my life and my best friend…he makes all okay in my life. It seems like with him by my side, I can conquer any obstacle in my way.

So, that’s it for now.  In the midst of bad and blah, I must always remember the good. There is always good to be found.

Much love to you all,

Jess

May Birchbox and Giveaway

Hey guys,

I hope you are enjoying this beautiful Spring! I recently received my May Birchbox and I’ve posted a video below. In that video I discuss one of my goals to achieve. I would like to reach 75 subscribers by the end of June. To me this seems reachable, but I need help! If you like my videos, chances are you know some people who would like them, too. If I reach my goal of 75 subscribers by the end of June, I will giveaway a three month subscription to Birchbox. Thanks to all those who have already subscribed and continue to support my little hobby! It is much appreciated.

Not sure what Birchbox is? Visit their site: http://www.birchbox.com

Much Love,

Jess

April Favorites!!

Can you believe it’s almost the end of April? Wow, time really flies by. I know the blog has been lacking for a while, I am really trying to focus my efforts on my YouTube channel. My passion in life is makeup; exploring new makeup, reviewing it, applying it and talking about. My dream/goal is to provide videos on a weekly basis chalk full of makeup application and reviews. I want my blog to follow up with supplemental information to the makeup, plus add in some fashion and tidbits of my life. I really want my blog to be that personable layer…the “get to know me” layer to my dream.

With that, I will leave you with my latest video! Thanks again for reading and watching!

Much Love,

Jess

I adore Spring!

Who doesn’t love Spring? It brings the most beautiful weather, trees and flowers are blooming, more time is spent outside, new clothes in fun bright colors are being purchased and it stays lighter, longer! I hope ya’ll are receiving the same beautiful weather that we have here.

I thought I would join in the fun and film the ” I Heart Spring” tag going around on youtube. You can check it out here:

Much love to you all,

Jess

Applying false eyelashes…

Hey guys,

So, am I the only person that had a difficult time learning how to apply false eyelashes? I can’t tell you the countless times I poked myself in the eye or yanked out a few lashes. Over time, it got a little easier and now it’s no longer as much of a challenge. If you also find yourself in that boat, check out my new video. I have some tips and tricks that helped me make applying easier.

Hope you enjoy. If you do enjoy, please subscribe!
