This post is going to be a little bit different. It’s not beauty related at all, but just more so a post, asking you guys for some help. So, when I started my blog last October, I didn’t know anything about self hosted websites or any of that. I still don’t really, lol that’s why I’m making this post.
I’ve been really curious about it for a while because, while I love WordPress.. I’m restricted to having a great layout that I want, like how I see other blogs have these really amazing layouts. I mean, that’s pretty much my main concern. I’ve had to use a basic one that came with my WordPress plan. I want ones that I can buy and install and those ones won’t allow it on here.
I am obsessed with scents. I love things that smell great, candles, fragrances, you name it. I don’t know about you, but whenever I go into a Sephora, or Ulta, or any kind of store that sells perfume or fragrances… I always end up leaving smelling like a million different scents because I just can’t help myself and need to sample EVERYTHING.
I’m always looking for new fragrances that I’ll love. (Lots of times I find them just by getting those sample cards that come inside magazines) Sometimes I end up finding a scent just because I like the look of the bottle or the packaging looks nice. (I know, crazy… luckily I haven’t bought one yet that was a complete fail)
It’s been a while since I made a post non beauty related. Speaking of beauty, there are a few products I have my eye on that I’m considering purchasing. I may have a post about that soon.
How is it that we’re going into the end of May? Already? The year is almost half way over… didn’t we JUST celebrate the New Year? Feels that way, sometimes.
I’m not a fan of summer, so this time of year is totally one I dread. I don’t like feeling hot and sticky, I hate humidity and super hot temps. I’ve always been that way. (give me fall weather or winter weather) Plus I hate all the bugs and bees the summer brings. Ugh! I dread this every time… I hate spiders, bees, wasps, mosquitoes, random strange weird bugs that show up in my house every now and then at this time. No. No. No. I’m over summer before it even begins. Every. Single. Time.
I’m a little late with my April Favorites, but here they are nonetheless. All my favorites are things that I’ve been loving so much! I mean, of course, monthly favorites are products or items you’re loving for that month… I’m just really excited and loving them more so than maybe past months favorites. LOL.
Ahh! You guys! I hit 1k followers! What?!? I still find that a little crazy to me. When I started my blog back in October of 2016, I didn’t really know what to expect. I didn’t think anyone would read it! Never did I imagine that today, I’d have 1,000 followers!
I’m so grateful to each and everyone of you who has decided to follow me, like my posts, comment, etc. I’ve met some really great people over here and this little blogging community is so kind and wonderful. I’m so happy to have each and everyone of you!
This means so much. I love all my followers on Instagram and Twitter, don’t get me wrong. This little space I have on here is different. I’m not just posting pics or writing (most of the time on Twitter lol) nonsense. You guys are actually reading what I’m writing and getting something out of that. You are listening to what I have to say and deciding to follow me. That’s why with every follower I get on here, it means a lot. (Again, I love every follower I get on all my other social media pages. I just think this one is a little bit more personal.) Hopefully you understand what I’m trying to explain. 🙂
I’ve been tossing around the idea of having some kind of giveaway on here. I wanted to do something when I hit 1k. I’m just not sure how to go about doing it just yet. I’ve never done one and I’m trying to figure out how I’d like to go about doing this. I’ll keep you guys updated on that.
I just want to thank you all once again. Thank you for deciding to follow me (or stick with me if you’ve been here since the beginning) I’m glad you guys enjoy my posts and I love connecting with you all. Every like and comment you give me means so much and makes me so happy.
THANK YOU!!! 🙂
Please feel free to connect with me over on my Instagram or Twitter – ThattgirlJenn just let me know your handle so I can add you back! I also have reviews I do on my Instagram that I don’t always post on here. I’d love to be able to connect over there as well.
Thanks for reading! 🙂
I thought I’d do an update of shows I’m watching currently and really enjoying. I did one of these, I think, back in the fall. I talked about American Horror Story Roanoke Nightmare, (which I was enjoying at that time… however, I ended up kinda hating it as it went on) along with a few other shows that were on at the time.
I don’t really find too many shows that I take an interest in. I’m really into “reality tv” and I like mystery or scary type shows. I like comedies, but I don’t find many comedy television shows that I particularly like. I think I’m more into movies than I am into television shows. However, once in a while a show (or shows) come along that I just can’t get enough of.
*If you’re a fan of any shows listed, you may not want to read further if you’re not all caught up, as this post may contain spoilers.*
So Bath & Body Works recently came out with a new body care collection called Tutti Dolci. I first heard about this a few weeks ago and was patiently – not so patiently, waiting for it to hit my stores.
Right off the bat I was attracted to the colorful packaging. (We know I’m a sucker for cute packaging) Upon learning what the fragrances were going to be in this collection, I was sold. The scents are : White Mocha Kiss, Sweet Lemon Buttercup, Pink Peony Cream, and Golden Honey Praline. All of those scents (excluding Pink Peony Cream at the time, sounded amazing!) I knew this was going to be a collection I was definitely going to try! Continue reading
