Weekly Update

Hey what is up hello! This week the unit I have been working with left, which was kind of sad. The military culture is so used to that though, it also felt super normal. I was the narrator for the ceremony and I got roasted by a general on stage. Which I did not know he was joking, and I seriously wanted to melt on stage in front of 100 people. Looking back on it, that was hilarious. 

What I am looking at:
- Love this fuzzy vest. 
-This poncho for a cold day. 
-Swooning over this. 
- I still want this 

-Weekly plans// Nothing coming up! I need to flipping send my Christmas presents, and get my booty into gear with running. Also my planner came in for this year and let me tell you I am obsessed. 

What I am wearing this week// I can not stop wearing this.

Video// I live fort these makeup videos on Instagram.

Have a great rest of the week!

Weekend in Doha

Hey what is up hello! So as you may know I am living in Doha Qatar for the next couple of months. Which it is such an easy life here. I work 8 hours. All of my meals are cooked and cleaned for me. I get to bike around, and have three beers if I want. I am also allowed to go around the city whenever I want.

Which it take about 45 minutes check out and get into the city, so that is a little frustrating. I also am chronically tired, so I do not go off too often because it is a whole ordeal.

This was one of the most fun weekends to date.


My team can not go into the city without me, and someone cancelled on them last minute to chaperone them, so I got conned into going;) I was already pretty tired, and I did not want to do that much so I suggested we just go to the Cheesecake Factory. I know I know, typical American, so we grabbed dinner and the crew wanted to walk around the mall. Which FYI a mall is a mall is a mall. Almost anything you can get in the USA you can get pretty much anywhere else in the world.

This mall was super pretty, and it kind of reminded me of Vegas.


We went on what I like to call "operation sunshine". Which at this point I was soooo tired. We woke up early and walked around the down town market. Which is fun to see the more unique shops. I loved the horses walking around.

Then for breakfast we went to the cutest restaurant ever. It was super fancy looking, and had a ton of options. Which Doha is so funny, because like any place if you go to the tourist traps everything is so expensive. (Like 200 dollar dinner for one person expensive), but our breakfast came out to be about 15 dollars.

Which the food here no matter what is so good because everything is so fresh. I mean just look at the picture!

Then we went to what I believe is pearl island. Which there is a cute museum there and you can walk around and see the city. And of course we had to see the pearl island statue.

Then we were getting ready to leave and everyone is trying to sell you something everywhere. We were at the port and one of the boat drivers asked me if we wanted to go on a boat ride. At this point I was so tired and just said no without thinking.

The crew I was with wanted to go and it was the best 15 dollars I had ever spent. They took us on a 30 minute tour around the port. Which we got to see the skyline and the water was the prettiest blue color. Overall, it was a super fun day hanging out in Doha.

I'll take a glass of Red Wine, I mean nail polish

Hey what is up hello! The title is lame I get it. Also I love neutrals and red this season. 

I mean red for Christmas, ground breaking. BUT wine red is the best red. Also red wine is the best wine. I know little to nothing about wine. However, I do know that I like to drink it. I like trying new bottles from Trader Joes. 

Trader Joes has pretty cheap alcohol. (How do they do it?) I usually get anything for 7 dollars because baller on a budget. I do love 
menage a trois silk. 10/10 in my book. That being said here are my favorite nail colors for the season.

My Everyday Makeup

Hey what is up hello! I am kind of hash tag bored here. There is only so much running and building a website you can do in one day. I have started uping my makeup routine. Which there is still a lot to improve upon, but it is fun to spend a little bit of time every day playing around with new techniques. 

Primer// This is new to my makeup routine, and something simple to add that adds a lot. Primer really cements your makeup into place. 

Foundation// I am on the hunt for the perfect foundation currently. Well actually the perfect foundation primer setting spray combo. I was so surprised by wet n wild's foundation. 

Beauty Blender// This is also a game changer! I love brushes because it is so much faster, however the blender makes everything look so smooth!

Eyebrow pencil// I was using a brush mascara for the longest time, however I love how the pencil looks so much better. 

Eveshadow primer// One part I do not do concealer around my eyebrows, so this cleans up my brows. Second, this glues your eyeshadow into place. 

Concealer// I use this more to contour my face. This is a new step to the process, and I am still learning how to use this properly. 

Bronzer// I have also used this to contour (still learning how to use this), however if you use this along the hair line (learned this from lady gaga) the contour is perfect.

Blush// True life I am addicted to blush. I love to over dose on blush. I pretty much put this on the apples of my cheek and above the cheek bones to the ear. Can't stop won't stop. 

Laura Mercier Powder// Once everything is set in place, put this all over your face. Just a light dusting and this makes your skin looks amazing! 

Eyeshadow// I have no new tips for this, however it is my favorite part.

Eyeliner// You will notice I do not have eyeliner on here. I do not wear it anymore. It is mostly because it takes so much time and it never looks even.

Setting Spray// Again this helps glue literally everything in. Also do not put your highlighter on until AFTER this dries.

Mascara// While your setting spray dries time for mascara, this Tarte mascara works as great as a fiber mascara, HOWEVER! It has no fibers, so it is easy on the eyes. 

Highlighter// Wait until after the setting spray is in place and BAMB! This makes the highlighter glow from across the room!

Stocking Stuffers

Hey what is up hello! I love trinkets. I learned this when I moved half of my "stuff" was clothing and trinkets haha. That is why stocking stuffers are the best!

Here is some of the little things for the person who means a whole lot to you;)


Happy 100 post!

Okay I am pessed. This was suppose to publish last night but something happened (technology wise) so we will have two post today. 

Hey what is up hello! Happy 100th post for the year! I am way behind than most years. As most years on this post I realize that I am so bad at staying consistent with this thing. Honestly though, doing Blogmas this year, I am kind of learning there is not a need for me to post every single day, my readers have even said they want about 3 post a week. SO a little market research I do not feel too bad this year haha!

Honestly I do not know where 2018 went for this blog. I did not have a plan at all. I will be honest my blog was on the last of my list on things I needed to get done. With traveling for work and trying to move across the glob, things slid to the end of the list. 

Anyways, I always forget how much of an outlet this blog is for me. Anytime I am stressing out, doing a blog post always gets my mind off of everything. 

What I did learn going through my post this year, I got a whole lot less personal and more technical, and also my readership went way down. Which is fine, but I did realize the fun post kind of disappeared.

This is why we do a review, right!

I never really talk about blogging until this year. Like the act of blogging. This post was one of my most popular post of the year. 

Reviews// I am actually pretty surprised that these post did so well. I love comparing a product I love to something better. This is how I found my favorite running shoes, and natural deodorant want the hot ticket item.

Youtube Channel// I started my youtube channel. It was super fun, but also extremely annoying because I lost my changer every 7 minutes. 

I talked more about the military// This was also something that I opened up more about. I did not think people cared, but again one of my top post!

Holiday Booties

Hey what is up hello! This post is inspired by THESE shoes. I love glitter, but I am kind of past the age where I should be allowed to wear tons of it. This is a subtle way to add it to your holiday outfit. I am thinking all black with these POP! What a look. Anyways, here are some of my other favorite choices for the season.
