NYX COSMETICS HAUL: Whats Really Worth Your Money?

I won't say I went crazy at the NYX Pentagon City Grand Opening...but I will say that I picked up a bit more than I bargained for.

To be honest I only went in for a new eyeshadow base and a grey lipstick...but clearly my self control missed that memo.

However not all that glitters is not gold...

Find out all the deets on the products I snagged at the opening including which ones I loved and kept and which ones I hated that had to go back to the store! 

Plus suggestions on which products I think are really your dollars.

The Hunt: Target Clearance Electronics, Home Goods & Storage Oh My!

If you haven't figured it out yet, Target clearance hunting is my JAM!

I get a rush of adrenaline every time I find a great piece of unmarked clearance or an amazing deal on something i've been eyeing.

The only thing that makes me more excited than that is being able to share all these deals with so many of my followers that otherwise would have time to search for them on their own.

I LOVE passing deals along & with that, lets get into this weeks finds filled with electronics, bedding, home goods, and summer items.

And don't forget to look out for the next installment of The Hunt in 2 weeks!

But I think I've finally got it. Check out what I used to achieve this vampy daytime summer look below!

Sex, Dating & Body Counts: Why My Number Doesn't Matter To Me Anymore

Somewhere along the line when I was dating I came up with this idea that I would be married before I had sex with a certain number of men. I didn't exactly know where that thought came from or why I had come to this conclusion that my number of sexual partners was so important but it was.

As I dated more,  every time the conversation of being intimate with my partner came up I had a mini panic attack. I would frantically begin the count in my head, recapping everyone I had had sex with. Making sure I was still far enough away from "my number" just in case he wasn't "the one".

You know....ensuring that I still had enough wiggle room.
