Cute Patterned Shorts

There has been a weekend market/fun-time going on every Friday and Saturday during the summer in the area I live, but I hadn’t had a chance to check it out until recently. I’m glad Cole and I finally went down though, because I loved it! There were a ton of food trucks, it’s right at the waterfront so it’s a really pretty area and there are tons of little stalls to browse. They had live music going and a beer garden too, which we’ll definitely be partaking in next time we have a chance to go ;)

12 Search Terms That Led People To My Blog

So I just found out that with Jetpack site stats I can see search terms for the last week, last month, last quarter, last year and all time. I thought that sounded pretty fun so I’ve been going through them.. and oh. my. gosh. WHY do people search the things they do and more importantly WHY do they end up on my blog?! Here are some of my favorite (and some just clearly ridiculous) search terms that led people to my blog.

30-Pan MAC Eyeshadow Palette Giveaway

I have been delving a bit further into beauty lately on this blog as I had noticed a good response from my lovely readers when I had posted in the past a bit about beauty here and there. While I will never be a beauty blogger, I am making a more conscious effort to include a bit more beauty in my posts as it IS something that I really enjoy and have a lot of fun with!

you’re being challenged to look up

Disclosure: This post was sponsored by smartwater through their partnership with POPSUGAR Select. While I was compensated to write a post about smartwater, all opinions are my own.

Being a blogger and a graphic/web designer, I am on the computer or my phone a LOT. It’s kind of inevitable. This definitely can take a toll on my sanity, though. I often will get up from my desk and go stand outside on the balcony for a few minutes just to take a little break, revitalize and enjoy the view. Sometimes I’ll go for a walk to a coffee shop or the grocery store simply because I want to get outside and enjoy the world outside my little office for a while. Living in a day and age of social media and tons of technology-based jobs, we often find ourselves glued to our computers, phones or even our TVs. Have you ever taken some time to put down the tech stuff, go outside and just look up? Even walking down the street we often have our heads down, looking at our phones, checking our Facebook or Twitter feeds to see what we’re missing out on. What we’re REALLY missing out on is the beauty of life and what is happening around us in that very moment. We need to stop more often and take a few minutes to look up.

Ipsy Glam Bag Review – July 2014

Disclosure: this post contains my Ipsy affiliate link. Obviously, I would LOVE for you to sign up under me if you are interested!

It’s time for an Ipsy Glam Bag review! I finally got off the waitlist for Ipsy last month, but didn’t get last month’s bag in time to share everything without spamming the world with yet another Ipsy post. This month’s bag is late too but I don’t even care, I want to share for everyone who may not see reviews elsewhere! If you haven’t signed up for Ipsy, you definitely should. At only $10 a month (+ $4.95 shipping if you live in Canada which really isn’t that bad at all), I certainly look forward to this happy mail!
