Recap, Reflecting

Weekly Recap; June 10th – June 16th

Today’s Father’s Day but I haven’t been home in 7 years, so.

About 2 ½ weeks left until I move… I should probably start packing eh?

Two years ago on Father’s Day I was forced to get an abortion; I wrote about it on a blog I started for mental health and gaming. It was such a traumatic situation and experience. It amazes me how cruel some people can be. And how they have the audacity to not just be cruel but to also spread lies about you. If there’s anything I learned from my failed marriage though it’s that people will make up facades and worlds they believe in their heads to help them cope with who they REALLY are and hide the things about them they hate.

It doesn’t excuse them but sometimes being angry about something/someone is like drinking poison and hoping the other person dies. So instead I look at it for what it really is, accept that people are shit and unfair and I go back to working on being the best version of myself I can be and distance myself from anything negative that doesn’t serve me.

Weekly Recap; May 20th – May 26th

I’m actually writing this on May 30th, since Bubba had a 3 day weekend but for the sake of NOT confusing myself next week we’ll pretend I wrote this on the 27th.

This week has been… emotionally draining. I like to pride myself on not being a jealous person or a psycho when it comes to relationships because I know how self toxic that can be; there are some things that bother me and I always struggle with I didn’t grow up with Bubba so I don’t know who Bubba was before he met me. I know about his life, but I wasn’t there to witness it and that’s something that I knew would somehow someway bother me when I got divorced; I watched my ex husband grow up. I watched him turn into who he is now. I know all his dirty little secrets that no one else will ever know.

Recap

Weekly Recap; May 6th – May 13th

Not much went on this passed week; I found a bunch of throwback photos. I refused to take bubble baths while Bubba wasnt here because Spring brings bugs. Even if I do keep a can of RAID close. I only managed to put up one blog post this week. Hmph. I’ve been really tired and sleepy this week! I have no idea why! But it’s driving me crazy.

Last Sunday we went grocery shopping; and it was pretty damn productive. I miss Publix like crazy but Tom Thumb isn’t so bad. I wish there was a Trader Joe’s close to a Tom Thumb somewhere around here though, that would make things so much easier!

I also did a little cleaning; finally cleared off the side of the counter in the kitchen where the coffee machine is… the other side? Not so much. This apartment is big but small for a one bedroom… I mean it’s a decent size but it has no storage space. I don’t even have a balcony so yeah. This apartment will never be as organized and as tidy as I want it to be. Which worries me about the next place as well.

Weekly Recap; April 30th – May 6th

Not even gonna comment on how fast time is flying. Months just zoom by and it’s so crazy. I’m highly convinced that the older you get the more the days speed up! Like now it’s 4pm and I swear it was just 230 like 5 seconds ago!

This week was pretty good and again I’m including Sunday since I’m writing this on Monday.

I got myself the April Julep mystery box as a bday gift to myself and I don’t know… I’ve been a subscriber for like 5 years and I use to love these boxes but their other ones included makeup and skincare (which their makeup and skincare? I LOVE) but this one included mostly polish this time around and I don’t wear blush so… it doesn’t have any use for me. Not to mention I’m not too impressed with the polish shades that they included. I mean nudes are always nice to have around but I guess I was just hoping for something MORE.

I also finally gave this a light and I LOVE it!

It smells like a watermelon Jolly Rancher! I didn’t end up going back for the Cactus one but it’s still heavy on my mind. I also heard that Bubble Gum was back up on the site last night but when I checked this morning it was all gone. Man that’s quick! Some day I’ll catch another one lol.

But highly impressed with this scent and throw. Not to mention I love this packaging though it’s very similar to the Fall one from last year with the “camping” collection. So I’m a little confused why they used the same theme. But the frosted jars are always nice.

Lip Smacker x Mickey & Minnie Mouse Valentine’s Day set

IMG_8950

It seems every year there’s a special Limited Edition Lip Smacker Mickey & Minnie Mouse lip balm set for Valentine’s Day.

This year it featured Mickey in Marshmallow Hugs & Minnie Mouse in Sweet Candy Kisses.

I had the one from last year as well but I never opened/tried them and I didn’t blog about it, though I’m not sure why I didn’t.

Minnie has a cute Strawberry themed looking bow between her ears and Mickey is sporting a red heart on his right ear. But that’s not all!

IMG_8952

CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW CUTE THEIR LITTLE MOUSE BUTTS ARE?!

I loved the design they were dressed in and their little tails made it even better! I don’t know,  I guess I just assumed it was just the front face part that was designed.

I’m gonna start with my favorite former boss, Mickey.

The thing I’ve never been a fan of when it came to these TsumTsum lip balms is that they’re so dang head heavy! And how small of product you actually get (granted I’ve never actually finished one of these, but still, roll with it) compared to the size of their cute huge heads!

When I first tried these two out I concluded that Mickey tasted like Magic Kingdom.

The scent and the taste of this lip balm reminded me of a really pretty sunny day walking across Main Street USA and eating my favorite Chocolate Marshmallow’s from The Confectionery. It’s that kind of taste/scent. I’d say that he had a pretty heavy spot on taste and scent of marshmallow with a really nice powdered vanilla flavor.

When it came to Minnie, I felt like she tasted like EPCOT.

Like, if you were to take Flower & Garden Festival and wrap it up into one flavor, it would be this Minnie.

She had a really sweet fruity taste/scent to her. I could pick out Strawberries and Watermelon and a hint of what sort of reminded me of lollipops.

The only problem was as good as she tasted when first applied, as it faded it just started to taste/remind me of what a big huge sugary mess would smell like lol. I wasn’t a fan of what it would fade into.

The scent/taste and the moisture factor for both of these lip balms lasted a really good amount of time. I didn’t find myself reapplying it as much as other lip balms and it wasn’t at all drying as it did fade.

I really enjoyed trying these guys out. I collect almost anything TsumTsum and I have a number of these lip balms and I USE to review them. I don’t know why I stopped! I had so much fun putting this post together!

I’m curious to know what next years flavors are going to be!

Hello, Recap

Weekly Recap; Nov 5th – Nov 11th

I can’t believe how fast this year is just FLYYYYYING on by! It’s pretty much mid November now meaning Thanksgiving is not too far away and once that happens it’s full blown Christmas until the end of next month.

The temp has been dropping here like crazy and I’m pulling out all my hoodies and I need to find my sweaters as well as reorganize my closet to fit all the winter clothes now that summer is finally gone!

Hello

Weekly Recap; Aug 13th – Aug 19th

These weeks are passing by faaaaast.

I feel like my anxiety has taken over a little bit and I haven’t had much sleep lately. It’s been driving me crazy. I’ve always hate the dark and the night and I’ve tried to get myself in a mindset where it won’t bother me as much but my anxiety has a way of spinning things way out of control too. That’s what I remember most looking back at this week was the lack of sleep I’ve been experiencing. Sigh.
