Life Lately: New Beginnings

Life Lately: New Beginnings

Hi there PoP readers! It’s been a while since I’ve posted and I felt compelled to update you on what’s been going on with me. I started a new full-time job at the beginning of March. So far I like it, but getting adjusted is never easy and a little overwhelming. On top of starting a new job, my fiancé and I packed up our things and moved in to a new apartment this past weekend. Needless to say, I’ve been through quite a bit of change within the last couple of weeks and it hasn’t been the easiest transition. We’re living in a slightly smaller place but all the appliances are brand new, it’s walking distance to a grocery store and restaurants, and it’s closer to the highway. I’m sure if you are/have been a renter, you understand why the move was worth it. Now the only thing worse than moving… is unpacking. I know this because I have only unpacked enough to enjoy my Ben & Jerry’s Mint Chocolate Cookie Ice Cream and my First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Hydra-Firm Sleeping Cream (two things I crave daily). I know what you’re thinking: I forgot to unpack the wine. Once I unpack my tote bags filled with beauty products, I’ll be back with a bevy of reviews, tips and tutorials for your reading pleasure. Until then, here are a few of my favorite links from around the web:

Mules are making a comeback. Guess I need to start practicing walking in them because I am in love with Belle’s shoe picks on her blog.

In the midst of moving, my future mother-in-law surprised me with my very own makeup vanity from Pier 1 Imports. I did a double-take as I walked right by it when I saw our new apartment for the first time.

I love layering my gold dainty jewelry but more often than not, I spend way too much time detangling them. Meaghan recently rounded up some pre-layered favorites on her blog.

This recent write-up on the best lip stains has me ready to splurge on quite a few!

I picked up a few great spring cleaning tips thanks to Glitter Guide.

Cheers to new beginnings!
