Bonus Books I’ve read So Far This Year

So I’ve been a little sneaky, I’ve been reading more than what I talk about on my book challenge of the month posts. I know, whatever. I like to read. As we all know. Since we’re at the halfway point for the year I thought I’d talk about all the ones I’ve read so far….

Book Challenge of the Month (July 2019)

Hello all! Another month, another reading challenge! This month’s challenge brings with it a bit of nostalgia: A book you were supposed to read in high school but didn’t. My challenge book this month will be Lord of the Flies by William Golding. When I was in high school this book was on the assigned reading list…

June Book Reviews

The Witches of New York By Amy McKay I wanted to love this book, I really did. But it just wasn’t as good as I had hoped it would be. It’s full of all kinds of nice, witchy aesthetics but it wasn’t enough to save the story. The story was so basic, it’s definitely been done…

It’s Been Rough…

I don’t know what has been going on with me but mentally I have been feeling so unmotivated. I seem to have these moments a lot lately and it takes a while to shake it off. I especially haven’t been feeling much like writing. I look at my list of topics and none of them…

My Favorite Serial Killers: “The Co-Ed Killer”

It may sound morbid to say I have favorite serial killers, but I don’t mean it in the sense that I like the way they killed or that they exist at all. I just find them fascinating. We as humans have rules that we like to keep in order to feel safe, rules that respect…

Six Years of Marriage

Today is our six year anniversary. It does and it doesn’t feel like it’s been that long. It does because we have children. It doesn’t because I’m just really happy with him. Let me just tell y’all. I was in a really unhappy relationship when I met Marc. I had never been with someone that…

Dream Series #14

I dreamt that I was being tortured. I was kidnapped, strapped to a bed and was cut in certain places and left to bleed out. I actually felt the pain in my dream. Which is unusual. It was probably just the memory of being cut that made me remember the pain. I bled a lot….

Three Looks, One Palette

Hello all! Here we go with the makeup posts. I thought it would be fun to showcase a particular eye shadow palette and give three different options for looks from it. I’ve seen YouTubers do this and I love watching those kinds of videos so I wanted to do it too. One YouTuber in particular…

Happy Birthday, Avery!

Today is my little sister’s birthday. She’s five years younger than me and the third born in my family. Growing up we didn’t really get along. We were pretty different. She also did everything in her power to annoy me and make me mad. Now she’s a mother and we get along a lot better….

Kids Do the Darnedst Things

There’s a funny side to parenting and it usually has to do with learning things the hard way. Here are a few times my sons taught me that even though they do something crazy, it’s usually my own fault. The diaper fiasco: When Cillian was about ten months old he woke me up with a…
