Date night should be more than just going to dinner and a movie. This date is creative, and it is good for seasoned couples and also couples that are first starting to date. If you are newly dating, it allows you to show off your fun side, and if conversation is awkward, there is so much else to do. For seasoned couples like us, it is great because we don’t feel ourselves slipping into the pattern of talking about the kids or work. We can focus on us and having fun.
If you are a makeup hoarder like me, you are always on the look out for deals and ways to get the newest looks and best colors and products for the season. This was how I got started on beauty boxes. The Boxycharm box is the newest box to my collection, so I thought I would share my first box details with you, as well as thoughts.

Let me just start by saying that I love the art of Cosplay! However, when it comes to sewing skills and costuming…well I kinda stink at it. I know I cannot be the only one that lacks certain skills, so I thought I would give a bit of introduction today on some things I have done in the spirit of cosplay while I continue to work on my costuming skills!
Supporting small businesses has always been important to me, and if you have been following me for a bit, you know I love to give shout outs from time to time to some of my favorite small businesses! With it being International Women’s Day, I thought it would be a good time to share about my birthday day trip up to Lakewood, OH that I took and spent the day supporting small women-owned businesses and loving every bit of it!
While my issues may prevent me from my original plans, there is no reason that I have to give up on life or all my dreams. I just need to modify them to fit the situation. It is not perfect, but doing this can give you a better outlook. Having a more positive outlook can affect the way you live your life.
If you happen to see something on Instagram or Pinterest…or even when you are out and about, but you don’t know how to get a hold of it in your size, try these tips. I very much suggest this especially when it comes to vintage inspired dresses because I see a lot of my favorite prints by my favorite designers being passed off on Amazon and Ebay as knockoffs. Also, when looking for something by your favorite brand, start keeping a list of small boutiques to try because they just might have what you are looking for, plus shopping small businesses is just awesome!
Sometimes life happens in a way that makes us scared. Sometimes things happen that screw up our plans and goals so badly that we want to give up, that we can’t see a happy ending, or that we think we cannot obtain our dreams. Don’t give up on your dreams! Re-evaluate them. Start slowly. Start simply and build on that.
