Latest Obsessions

Oh hey everyone! It's me. You know, that girl that used to blog and just fell off the face of the earth. I know, I've been a bad blogger. I keep on telling myself I'll get better and start blogging again, but it just hasn't happened. I guess you could say I'm in some type of blogging slump. Lately, all I have been wanting to do when I get home from work is snuggle up with the nugget and watch The Glades (which I've watched almost two seasons of in a matter of days...)

Part of the reason I started this blog was to share with you all some of my current obsessions, hence the tag line. And since it's been a century and a half since I have last done so, I think today would be the perfect time.

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw this picture I posted last week of my new favorite maxi skirt. I found this bright fuschia, chiffon overlay maxi skirt with a side slit at Nordstrom Rack a couple weekends ago and fell in love. I'm pretty sure I could wear this outfit all day every day. The semi-sheer skirt gives it an edgy feel. I might just go back and buy this skirt in every color they have!

Am I the only Northern girl who loves a good monogram? I've been obsessing over the Marley Lilly website, basking in all of it's monogrammed glory. The only problem is I'm in that awkward "what monogram should I get?" stage. I could get my initials, J.A.S., but that S is going to be turning to a B really soon. But, since the wedding is only 3 months away, I decided it wouldn't be too weird to get my soon-to-be new monogram. And this mason jar?! I think I might start carrying it around with me.

When I opened my May Birchbox to find another Miss Jessie's sample, I jumped for joy and cried at the same time. If you're a curly hair chick like myself and you've tried Miss Jessie's, you know why I was so happy and sad at the same time. Miss Jessie's makes, hands down, the best products for curly hair, but they cost as much as your first born son. You really expect me to drop 35 bucks on a tube of curl cream? Once, I tried the Jelly Soft Curls sample, I was in love. It gives me the hold I need for my fine hair but doesn't leave my curls crunchy and crispy like every other gel. And the best part? It's only $14! Sure, $14 isn't exactly cheap for gel, but compared to $35, I'll take it.

Well, I can't talk about my latest obsessions without talking about Riley now, can I? I'm pretty obsessed with this little pooch. He's been keeping me pretty busy lately, driving him back and forth to the vet at least once a week. The nugget had a respiratory infection that turned into pneumonia. But don't worry, a couple rounds of antibiotics and turning my bathroom into a sauna for him, the little guy was deemed healthy by the vet last night! He's quite the fighter and pretty darn spunky. He's quite the chunker too, weighing in at a whole 3 pounds 4 ounces. And if you're wondering how housetraining is going... it's been better.

Holy cow, we are so much alike. Well, I just see three similarities based on this post, but 3! I have super curly hair and loved the Miss Jessi's product I got in my Birchbox a few months ago.

Monograms are a must! I once got called out for being a follower when I said I loved my new Marley Lily item. What??? But I do. I don't care what others think.

And I have a 2 pound Yorkie named Mia. She looks like a rat. haha.

I think the blogosphere has finally been bit by the summer bug. Everyone seems to be slacking off or taking breaks, myself included!

I have SUPER curly hair so I'm going to have to find this stuff and give it a try!
