Self Hosted Sites? Help! I have Some Questions…


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.

Let’s Talk Scents : (

IMG_2868I 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)

Hey Gorgeous!

IMG_2368It’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.

April Favorites

IMG_1950I’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.

1,000 Followers! Thank you!


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.


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! 🙂

TV Shows I’m Currently Watching And Loving Pt 2

tvI 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.*

Bath & Body Works Tutti Dolci Body Care Haul & Mini Review

img_9736So 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

January Favorites

img_9295Happy February 1st, everyone! Time is just moving right along. It’s so crazy to me that we’re once again starting off another new month.

January was a month where I didn’t try out too many new items (beauty wise or other) and I didn’t end up having too many favorites, sadly. I don’t know what it was, it was just a month of eh… nothing super amazing caught my eye or really WOW’D me. However, the items I have included in my favorites for January are all ones I have been loving and using on a daily basis. I do wish I had more to include for you guys, but hopefully you’ll like what I have included. Continue reading

700 Followers!! What?!

img_9087I think I hit 700 followers on Friday or Sat and I’m just now having the chance to recognize it. Guys!! 700! I feel like I just made my post for hitting 500 followers right before Christmas!

Many of you know I started my blog back in October and I had no idea what to expect. I certainly didn’t think I’d grow as fast as I have. It amazes me that 700 people have decided to follow me and read my blog, leave likes, comments, just interact with me. I am so thankful and grateful for each of you!

I wanted to start this blog because I wanted my own little space to talk about the things that interest me. Makeup being a huge part! Writing has always played a huge part in my life…so I just wanted someplace where I could speak my mind, share my thoughts, make some new friends & get to know others.

I get asked how my blog has grown so rapidly in such a short amount of time?

Honestly, your guess is as good as mine. I had no idea what I was doing when I started this blog… It took me hours just to figure out how to add links to my page, change the layout, insert pics. Literally had no idea what I was doing. Sometimes I still don’t know what I;m doing! 😉 However, I am a fast learner so it just took a little bit for me to get the hang of it. With that said, I’m still learning and just going with the flow.

The thought always crossed my mind, what if no one reads your blog? How do you get followers or people interested in reading what you’re writing? I had no idea! I still have no idea! Somehow 700 of you lovely, fantastic, followers made your way to my blog and chose to follow me and stick around.

All I can say if you’re looking to get your blog some more exposure, or make new connections try engaging with more blogs. I read a lot of different blogs, I leave comments sometimes, or simply just give a like. A lot of people will find your blog that way and maybe check you out.

Also, don’t be a ghost. Try and get to know some of the blogs you follow. It’s not about how many people follow you as it is finding people you might connect with, or share similar ideas or interest(s) with.

You also want to update and give your followers some quality content often.

Be consistent!

Don’t go weeks or months without posting and leave your followers hanging. They’re following you because they want to read about you or whatever content you post about. I understand life can get busy and sometimes things happen we have no control over. If you’re going to step away for a little bit, give your followers a heads up that you’ll be gone.

Other than that I don’t really have any ideas. I just know that has worked for me so far. Since I get asked often I figured I’d let you know. It’s nothing special or out of the ordinary. I’m just as amazed as some of you, that my blog keeps growing as rapidly as it does.

So in closing, I just want to thank each of you so much! Thank you for finding my blog and deciding you want to follow, thanks for the shares some of my posts get, thanks for all the likes, thanks for the comments, thanks for following me on my other social media pages and connecting with me. THANK YOU!!! You guys are amazing and this little blogging community has been so kind, helpful, and such a pleasant experience so far. I’m so glad I decided to start this blog! I love connecting with so many of you and I’m so grateful

Again, thank you all so much!!!

Feel free to add me on my other social media pages: (Let me know you followed me so I can follow you back)
