New Home! New Garmin! New Lipstick Vlog!

Hey look, it’s a random Sunday post!

I just wanted to pop in and say thank you so much to everyone who texted, called, tweeted or snapchatted me on Friday to say congrats on the new house.

I can’t believe Adam and I are officially homeowners now! How exciting!

I loved walking in on Friday and seeing a blank slate. It’s going to be so much fun making this place our own!



^ Sorry about the bad lighting but it was so cloudy out on Sat. I’ll take some better pics soon :).

Also a shoutout to everyone who commented on my post last week saying that the Garmin Forerunner 235 is a great running watch – I treated myself to one on Saturday :). I got the frost blue color and I love it!

Finally, I just have to tell you about a new lipstick shade I am LOVING!

It’s been a while since I’ve done a chatty vlog and I have missed it!

Included in the vlog are some scenes from when Adam and I went furniture shopping. I can’t wait for all the new stuff to begin arriving!

Luckily (or unluckily depending on how you look at it) Adam and I are under lease at our apartment until January, so we have plenty of time to do renovations, wait for furniture delivery, etc. before we have to move in.

We’ve got some work ahead of us, but I’m excited to roll up my sleeves and get to it!

What’s your current go-to shade of lipstick?

Do you like decorating/renovating or wish you could snap your fingers and everything would be instantly transformed?

    Congrats on the new place! I am not good at decorating so I wish that I could snap my fingers and have everything all finished. Its nice that you have the old place for a bit. We did the same thing when we moved and it definitely made things a little easier.

      Thank you Lisa!

      I fall somewhere in the middle. I like looking for decorations and I like picking them out – but then I wish I could snap my fingers and everything would be set the way I imagine it in my head! 😀

    Oh man decorating is going to be so much fun! I love decorating. Even when I don’t have a lot of money to do it, it is fun to find things on a budget. It’s like, it kind of makes it a little harder but I love the challenge! I don’t buy stuff for our house anymore because we have plenty of stuff. I’m not allowed to buy Christmas decorations anymore either because I have WAY TOO MUCH Christmas stuff. Every inch is decorated during the Christmas season and that’s just the way I like it. 🙂 Nice beard, Adam!

      It is fun to find things at a good price. I went to Home Goods yesterday and saw so many things I want to buy that are super affordably priced. Unfortunately until we paint and have the cleaners come over and do a deep clean we don’t want to put anything out. Until then I don’t want to buy a bunch of things that are just going to pile up — unless something is an absolute MUST BUY… such as a salt container I found yesterday that’s dark wood with a white marble top. I hate salt and never add salt to my food BUT it’s a beautiful container that matches my white marble kitchen theme so it was a must buy! 🙂

    Your new place looks great! I am not good with trying to organize or transform anything but I do think a blank slate is easier! Enjoy it! I think Cecil needs his own room 🙂
    Love the Vlog – and the huge sectional was pretty cool.
    I love matte shades, I usually lean towards those type of colors.

    How exciting! Once the cleaning and the painting are done, you will be in a rush to move in. I still have to paint the hallway in our house–I am waiting for the front door to be replaced…Currently, I need to get some large artwork for the walls and I am finding it a challenge, because I like to see things in person…

    I’ve been going back to some of my old lipsticks lately. I was into matte for so long but now I miss shiny lipsticks…but they never last as long. I need some good ones that leave a stain behind!
